The weekend has been interesting so far. First item of note has to be my frustration with the KV-2.
What’s that you say ? You thought I loved it ? I usually do, but I had a fantastically bad weekend with it. I played 12 matches, and we only won the last two. After a 13th match with a loss I decided to retire it for the moment – it’s moved past the hated KV-1 mark on my top ten tanks, and it can take a breather for the moment.
The MS-1 is almost at 99% BIA but not quite. I am waiting until I hit 100% on that one – probably another 50 matches or more. The trick being, I am not sure on the NC-31 which skill to take. Camo then BIA; BIA then Camo; or perhaps individual skills like clutch braking and sixth sense. The deciding factor will have to be how the MS-1 performs with an extra 5% bonus. That little beast will take those two individual skills for a 3rd set, whenever I finally get there.
The KV-4 and the VK4502B are grinding away the XP. The VK is becoming more fun, not that I have much of a reason for that. Maybe I’m less focused on getting the Maus. And even my ineffective gun doesn’t always ruin things –
Then I had quite the surprising game in the KV-4. It was Redshire, and I was top tank. With no real good idea about how to play that map, I asked where to go, and the team told me. So, I went – to the eastern side of the map and into the river.
There were a lot of enemies there and they all pinged off my armor like mad – and I managed to tie them up long enough that my team smoked em all. Even got an awesome achievement – “Cool Headed” to go with my Steel Wall.
Have finally used the Camtasia software to produce a video of this replay. Watch it here – (4 minutes). I have the fine control with this to actually produce a useful video, but man they take a long time to generate. Still, this is the way to save a replay – turn them on, delete all the useless ones, and mark the good ones. Produce a video and you can actually save it for posterity, even after a version change.
If there’s any interest I suppose I could look into Youtubing them.
