I ended up playing a lot of Tanks over the weekend. Limited time beta didn’t appeal, not with a major event on the horizon that I needed to prepare for. Wish I could say more. I got a real kick out of the watermark placed in all screenshots, with some code number and my WoT email address, which would certainly get me in trouble if I posted anything. I’m sure excited to see the final product – I played enough to know I’m going to love it.
Bought my Chi-Nu, the Tier V Japanese tank, and promptly sucked hard in it. My win rate is 33% with 50 games, and I continue to pound my head against the wall with it, because I need the XP to unlock the Chi-To. 7k of 31k so far. Spent no free XP on it and earned every module the hard way.
Once equipment sales are up, I’ll be buying a rammer, GLD, and attaching Binocs to it – these seem to be the best equipments possible for it.
Having realized I own the Churchill VII, I’m good on the British front, but I’ve been grinding out a lot of matches with the Crusader anyway. Not likely I’m going to unlock the Cromwell tonight, but I can keep messing with it I suppose.
I’m so close to finishing the Alecto (11.5k out of 13.5k). I’m not a fan of howitzer tanks, but this one is pretty good, and would probably be even better with a good crew (They’re currently 84%).
With enough free XP to unlock lots of stuff, I can enter the week ready to chase the big new tank. I could own that Chi-To no problem immediately. First, I’ll have to stay calm and just try to get some of the easier nations – like America. That’s a good enough game goal for the moment. Maybe just play the Chi-Nu enough for daily doubles etc. And for once, it’s time to concentrate on my highest tier tanks, since the mission requires 150k damage and 150 kills.
This should be fun.
