Camo is just great. You know the distance at which you usually get seen, you close in on the enemy line, you see an enemy and target him, but he doesn't see you. You target long and deliberately, then you shoot and you can see how the enemy can spot you then. Depending on the distance and your camo level, the enemy might not even get enough time to shoot properly, because you disappear from his view that quickly.

I usually imagine my own sounds with it, like `tjunk, tupdieyupdiedee` aaa enemy spotted, ratatatataboom

Do you remember your skills for the 50 B? I'm about to get the 3rd on the 50 120, BiA perhaps? I have standard repairs and 6th sense as first and second comes with safe stowage which is a must because this things loves ammorack damage and things to help me kill stuff while moving.

Safe stowage doesn't decrease ammo rack damage, it only decreases the chance to explode. Since I've never been ammoracked (as in blown up) in all of my 1300 matches it's a useless skill.

The skills on my highest trained account are like this

although as of late I changed my mind about the setups and now I usually give the camouflage skill priority. The other skills only add 3-5% which is kinda neglectable but the camo skill does more, and moreover not getting seen means taking less damage which in turn means better survivability, higher damage and higher chance to win.

Danke, I have been ammoracked quite a lot in my 50 120 tho.

I'm trying to make money for the 50 B and finally got out of this ugly piece of shit AMX 13 105, but I can't sell it because WG thinks I bought it on discount, and I bought it months ago.... GJ.

WZ-111 is so much fun, and I don't even have the 130mm!!

Ammo rack indeed gets hit quite often but I don't remember being blown sky high yet ;D
So camo is the most important one? I mostly had snap shot, smooth ride and view range extending skills first (which I sometimes later replaced by perks). I've heard it is pretty smart to train it on mediums, so far I've only done it on lights. I mostly use my medium tanks pretty offensively but I think a good camo skill would help me alot in the end game.

Those skills add about 3%. Any improvement is barely noticeable. Camouflage on the other hand has a better base bonus and will improve survivability and therefore indirectly influences combat performance as well (getting seen less = taking less damage = more time to deal damage). So in my book, camouflage skill has priority.

Typical day in my Nashorn, I tell you, it's cursed. It got a bit better since I've unlocked the L/71. Now I end as best loser :)

Yes, WG actually considers the Tiger I to be very OP and will be nerfing it, it remains unkown what they are going to nerf, it would be the long 88...

But it makes no sense, Tiger I best thing is the long 88, other than that, it's a shitty tank.


Meanwhile, in AMX M4 45...

Nice one Ciupita.

I don't mind WG nerfing or buffing this and that if they think it's needed, but I do mind them not nerfing some obvious OP tanks. T18 just as example.

Exactly, I don't mind nefring tanks that are overperforming, but ffs, PLEASE, nerf the obvious candidates first (I'm looking at Hellcat, KV1S, T18...)

It's mini-campaign time!

I'd love to get this T23E3 thing.

Preliminary patch notes for 9.1:
http://ftr.wot-news.com/2014/05/08/9-1-preliminary-patchnotes/

Nerfs to Tiger I, Tiger P, AT7, Hellcat, Sherman (105), T18, T29, T40.

Buffs to Jagdpanzer IV, Panzer I, VK2801, VK3001P, Cruiser Mk1, Medium MkII, UC2pdr, T32, A-32, BT-7, MT-25, SU-101, T-28, T-46.

Quite surprised by nerfs to AT7, British TDs tend to be just free xp most of the time.

As usual, when US tanks get nerfed, they get nerfed massivly. Look at the tiny changes to the other nations vehicles.
