Yeh that was my thinking - stick it out for the long run. I will almost certainly take the medium route via the Panthers to the E-50M for the German tree in that case, as I don't particularly fancy having to crawl around, dying in a Tiger.

I'm currently driving about in my Panther. It's good.

Get the StuG, it's just fucking great - great mobility, camo, and a very good gun for its tier. I have over 750 matches in mine, and if I had to clear out my entire garage this would be the last one I kept.

Urgh, I'm in the minority in that I fucking loathed the StuG but loved the Hetzer. Then again I did wish I had the StuG back when I got the next german TD (I refuse to say its name). That thing is horrible!

Ghaa, I can't choose between it and the T49! I don't wanna wait

Thing is, I really enjoyed playing the M8A1 and the Hetzer, only I progressed a lot faster in the M8A1. I've heard good things about both, so it's probably going to have to be whichever one's cheaper (the T49 I think), simply because I'll be too impatient to save up for the marginally more expensive one.

Also, just out of curiosity is anyone else doing the latest beta? I've downloaded it, but haven't had much time to use it. The one time I did, I straightaway went and bought me a nice 8.8cm Jagdtiger completely kitted out, what with all the free gold/credits you get on the beta.

EDIT: Had some more time to play beta. The Chinese 121 is beastly! - awesome pen on the gun with decent dmg, good speed/agility and the armour's not quite paper. Dunno if it's going to be available for the EU server though, along with the rest of the Chinese tree. Also trialled the 113 Heavy (similar in almost every way), the E-50M (quite liked it), the T-52A (Also really like this - the 121 is pretty similar to it), and the top British medium, which sucked absolute dick.

Anyhow, I'll probably go with the T-52A over the IS-7 overall, as I don't want to be too focussed on the Russian tree. That said, I've near given up entirely on the French AMX tree - wondering if the US light tree would be a decent substitute?

Also, got my StuGIII. I'm doing alright in it, only I've only won a game or two with it. Either I'm getting really poor teams (I manage at least a kill or two, often more), or my contribution to the team isn't what it needs to be...

Chinese tanks have just been patched in. Only a single line at the moment and a lot of them look like tanks from other nations.

Thats the idea of the Chinese line, all the early tanks are ones they bought in from the USSR etc.

I think I'm going to drop the French line in favour of the Chinese Medium one. I much preferred the playstyle of the 121 to the BatChat, and hopefully their lower tier tanks won't be as abysmal.

The A39 Tortoise is great fun, a really good tier 9 TD - been testing it on the, er, test server, and it's got awesome armour for a TD - 225 front and side - and an excellent gun. Can't wait till I get this beast in my garage on the live server...
