Want to buy me a beer well this where you click

I stream over on twitch 5days a week so come check me out!


  1. Goddamn, I love this intro

  2. the video quality is great I’m watching on my phone in 1080p and could see
    all of the stats nice review

  3. I hate the hull-down meta. It fucking sucks. And WG keeps pushing the
    issue. Let’s make the T29’s weakspot smaller! Let’s get rid of the T110E5’s
    altogether! Let’s make the IS-7’s turret impregnable from the side as well
    as the front! Fuck the IS-4 and ST-I, though! And the M103, while we’re at
    it! Hey, you know what would be great? More tanks with impenetrable fucking
    turrets! And more maps that are designed for them! Sidescraping? Fire
    vectors? The fuck are those? Who needs that shit when you can poke your
    head out at the enemy team and bounce every single goddamn shot they fire
    at you! Side armor doesn’t matter, weakspot management doesn’t matter,
    concealment doesn’t mean fuck all, and agility certainly doesn’t have an
    impact. Turret armor is king and gun depression is queen, with gun handling
    filling a spot as the royal heir.

    *whew* Glad I got that out of my system.

  4. Always a good start to the day early at work – coffee, breakfast and extra
    salt courtesy of a Foch YT review. If you ever visit Tallinn, mate, hit me
    up for a beer or two!

  5. Time to wait for a year to get the swedes nerfed.

  6. Around 11:40. How about that IS-3 flanking the enemy?

  7. anotherrandomtexan25

    yup I’m convinced… you have the BEST intro of any WoT you tuber :D

  8. Foch you could lose the in game tanks gg – prefer just the replay friend

  9. Awesome intro, add some braun non-sinking stuff somewhere and its perfect!

  10. love the new intro

  11. MrImmortalityPrince

    If i would have been in that situation i would have shit myself and cry.
    For some reason i am still a 54%er, should be lower to be honest. Watching
    players like Foch amazes me.

  12. I Climb Everything

    I don’t think that saying a frontal weakspot is bad and gets autopenned by
    HEAT is something reviewers should really focus on. I think what is much
    more important is: Can it be reliably penned by the average mm gun’s HE of
    that tier? Nearly every tank has frontal weakspots, a lack of one should be
    mentioned. For example, “VK 45.02 B, it has no real weak spots except for
    the machine gun slightly.” There you go. If it can be autopenned by HE, I
    think that is what should be mentioned. (Borsig) “This tank has no armor,
    and can be penned by every tank in the game” There you go. No need to
    mention, “Oh if you sidescrape at an exact 179.9° angle you can bounce tier
    1” great, keep it to yourself, that will never happen. Or if a vehicle has
    sub par armor but can’t be reliably penned by HE, say something like “The
    T20 has very poor armor, but some lower tier guns might have trouble
    penetrating with small caliber HE rounds.” If there are weak spots, call
    them out. But in general I don’t think it’s necessary to go very in depth
    or spend more than 5 seconds going, “The Emil II has super good turret
    armor but some HEAT can go through unreliably and AP is a no go but if you
    aim at this pixel here bla bla bla.” It should just be, this is your
    strongest armor relative to it’s tier and what it can be matched up with,
    it is strong. Then weakpoints then whatever. Not trying to attack you Foch,
    just using you as an example.

  13. I love the new intro

  14. I’m digging the new intro

  15. Great game play

  16. love the new starting clip and watching on a phone and could see all the
    stats. so great clip and keep up the good work.

  17. Surprised you don’t carry HE on your Emil II, the splash works wonders on
    the squishy gun mantlet. A clip of HE is also good for minimum aiming a low
    health target or a paper thin tank late game.

  18. New intro is Explosive.

  19. They should have never introduced the Swedish heavies….

  20. That intro! Great!

  21. the poor arty in your intro! You…..you fascist!

  22. Up voted for the intro alone.

  23. Foch bad player, didn’t bring a couple of HE clips to shoot at enemy EMIL’s
    turret ears. Foch could have done like 200, maybe 300 dmg with whole clip !
    – viable Swedish heavy counter comrade, cannot fail !

  24. dewd, the intro is bliss

  25. E5 needs another buff to compete with Kranvagn

    Heh heh heh

  26. Νικος Χριστινιδης

    love the intro.

  27. i like you r new intro

  28. why is it stupid? u see with a plan u can win such situations for u. Emils
    and Kranvagen are good hulldown tanks but thats it. Shot HE at them,
    cripple their guns or let them stay hulldown and fight other tanks. Emil
    and Kranvagen are sitting ducks with not really impressive guns, the 252mm
    apcr will bounce a lot, especially in close combat. And its not broken or
    anything. The turret is his main feature, in combo with the autoloader we
    didnt have such a tank ingame. Its a decent add to the game, nothing
    special nothing bad.


  30. Beutifull intro!! Just subscribed!

  31. Maybe it would be a good idea to start to load one clip of HE with
    autoloading tanks, just for situations like this? Well, at least these
    tanks that have some ammo capacity to spare.

  32. gg man ! good replay as always !

  33. Love the intro ;)

  34. IMO the turrets on Emil 2 and Kranvagn should be nerfed to 350 armor MAX
    when 12 degrees of gun dep. are deployed as it is so retarded. Maybe buff
    hull by 10-15 to balance it out. What do you think?

  35. Could you do a review on the EMIL 1 as well?

  36. New intro <3

  37. Tank stats on the screen are gud! Even in 480p you can somewhat see them

  38. #givethelowesomelove

  39. weird ending. such stalemate. wow

  40. Sounds like an autoloading t29.

  41. ares354 ares354 (Ares)

    Emil 2 armor planned 170 mm on front of turret, still with -12 degree of
    gun depresion could be good. But no, give him over 200 mm.

    But in the same time, in game still we have E75 and Vk auf B, both have 252
    mm flat frontal plate armor on turret, work well e WG….

  42. i love the intro! in your face efe-x cunt lol
    so the last 4 tanks alive are two emils 2 and two is-3s i think i see a
    pattern here

  43. The Emil 1 is far from OP than these 2 higher tier autoloaders. Think about
    it, the Emil 2 can replace the kranvagn armour profile with the kranvagn
    gun handling and still be good.

  44. why are you saying theyre nerfing accuracy? the proposition only effects
    low accuracy guns and its an amazing idea, it will encourage actual aiming
    and make snap shots harder. aimed shots will likely be as accurate and more
    reliable at some degree. also i know theyre saying for the change in
    sandbox is for like 0.42 but i can imagine it will be implemented on ALL
    guns and it should cunts taking snap shots cross and 300m or firing on the
    move is about 7 years overdue on being fixed

  45. I mean, all the swede heavies are holding the highest WR in the game for a
    reason rriitteee??????

  46. love the new intro

  47. Foch you asked about your stats page. I use 1080p resolution and just
    pause the video to take my time to review the stats. For the people using
    lower resolutions, if you could just make the stats close to full screen in
    size for a few seconds, then they too can read it without a problem.
    Otherwise, thanks for the review. Pretty much just confirms my own
    experience. Naturally, I will just leave a hull down Emil to fight
    somewhere else, or flank to shoot him. I have to admit, I feel a great
    deal of satisfaction when I get to kill one of these tanks as they are a
