The grind goes on, gloriously.
I’ve been concentrating on the M48 Patton event, and driving the Lee, M4, Easy 8, and the T20. This is for a couple of reasons :
- Somehow it’s fun to drive these tanks “for a limited time”.
- Earning rewards is always good, even when meager.
- I’m advancing them up the list to pass the VK 4502B.
Remember how much I hate that tank ? Apparently, it’s gotten an upgrade and it is now considered overpowered. You know, sometime I think life just hates me. I will hold onto my hatred of the tank and keep it close to my heart anyway. This means I must push it off the list of top tanks.
I’ve elited the Marder II, which I’ll clearly keep. The crew is a bit XP’d up because the Jagdtiger 8.8 has used them for premium matches. For the moment it’s off my list as I have plenty of tanking goals to pursue. I’ve also purchased an absolute ton of tanks, and have a single open slot left at the moment – only because I sold one of my Chi-Ha tanks.
Total matches are now over 18,000. I’m not going to commemorate that number, but instead it’s more interesting to see what tanks end up as my “most/least” driven.
I’m trying to keep things more in perspective nowadays, and one of those is on the cost of premium accounts. At the $50 gold package level, and 240 gold/dollar, premium costs less than $10 a month. So I went ahead and bought premium, and I’ve been playing steadily for the last week. If I get bored and quit, then it’s not worth it, but I can always justify blowing another $10.
See you on the battlefield.
