I got rid of my British Heavy Tank. I had the Churchill VII but got exasperated by it, most of the time it had no tracks, the other half of the time nothing bounced off it, it felt more like a very cumbersome medium tank than a heavy tank.

Obviously the solution is to concentrate on one or two tanks so I get more wins in, but I find I get bored too easily (except for possibly in the Crusader).
That's how I play, play a tank till I get my double and move on which is why I have a bad WR, just ground it up to 49% (48% is average as it happens).

The Churchill 1/VII is for crushing smaller tanks, avoid KV-1S's like the plague. It also side scrapes really well as your tracks absorb a lot of shots and it doesn't matter if you get tracked. So practice side scraping, it revolutionised the Churchill and a couple of other tanks for me.

If anyone wants to do some platooning (EU Server) just find me in game, AramoroA. I do tier 5 to 9 mostly. You can watch my tank in it's natural habitat, burning in a ditch.

I'm all up for platooning - only issue is I don't own a mike. So I'd be able to hear you, but not be able to reply (?)

I wish I hadn't sold my Tier VII German tank, really want to get it back. Enjoying Cromwell more, second game I had today I destroyed 6 tanks, it's like an assassin, scooting forwards to fall on badly damaged tanks.

Quite literally - I hear it's quite the rage to jump off cliffs and land on unsuspecting tanks below...

Yeah definitely, I added the additional suspension and I can go over a lot and down a lot without detracting myself.

I think the technical term is Goomba'ing.

I don't use voice chat in game anyway, just TS for clan stuff.

Just upgraded my Pz III to a Pz III/IV. Feels like a fucking downgrade - worse armour, agility, even the gun's hit and miss. That said, I really like the III, so hopefully it's just me needing to get used to the new tank.

Also goomba'ing -

I'll maybe hit you up Aramoro next week for some platooning - bit busy this week.

EDIT: Fucking team-killers. Don't rise to it... don't rise...
