I have been told, over and over, I am going to hate the ARL V39. I bought it over Veteran’s weekend, and probably should hate it considering the record I’m accumulating (33% win rate from 6 battles).
I’ve researched a Tier VII gun, but I couldn’t figure out for the life of me why I’d use it. Less pen, less damage, and not noticeably more accurate, so I’ll use the VI until I unlock the big gun.
The Tier 8 gun looks like a monster. I like the idea already.
I hit each of these tanks and penned them. The big guys cleaned them up, but I was useful and not considered much of a target apparently.
I also did that rarest of things for a soloist – I platooned with my buddy for a couple of hours. Usually, he plays tanks during the hours 7 – 9 PM, before his kids are in bed. I’m the opposite – I am 9 – ?? PM. But we hooked up yesterday and it was a lot of fun to be an arty platoon, which is mostly what we did.
He surprised me by coming up with some very good games, although he’s a bit uneven. I’m going to have to try and do more of that. With a friend, and not some random internet guy who’s going to pressure me to “do well so my rating improves”, it was a lot of fun.
