At last, the MS-1 crew is 99% BIA. And the next one percent will cost a cool 19,000 XP.
Almost as soon as they hit this mark, it’s the One. Thousandth. Match. In my MS-1.
I start out the bottom tank, but at least it’s Himmelsdorf :
Moved into a good sniper spot and wait for developments.
Unfortunately, few of the enemy came this way. I managed to take out a very weakened T18, thus leaving two enemies heading into our cap.
Being one of two close to them, I needed to be the defender, but I wasn’t up to the job.
Kind of a let down for a thousandth match, but c’e la vie.
I think part of what attracts me to XP’ing this crew up is the sheer difficulty. My Tier 7 to 9 tanks, these can earn a whole lot of points. Get one shotted and you’re probably talking 250xp, and a thousand point game is not something impossible.
Now a tier 1, get one-shotted and you get 60 XP. Epic games can net me a thousand (Maximum 1,366!), but the usual is 277. The third skill for the commander is clearly Sixth Sense – like THAT will ever come. I think that last 1% for the third skill is 38k. This is not out of the realm of possibility for, say, my VK4502A which has such a higher earning potential.
Add to this the inverse relationship between tier, and silver credits earned, and I’ll be driving these tanks as long as I continue the game.
In one of those (Forehead slap!) moments, I realized that I could put the crew of the MS-1 into the Tetrarch for a bit of extra Xp’ing. The Tetrarch has a 3 man crew with a gunner, but the other two positions are similar. This will be part of the regular rotation now. For some reason I had it in my head that this was a medium tank.
