More highlights of the upcoming Russian medium premium tank.
got here to see 54 prot gameplay, i will sub since you have a unique perspective, always nice to find a good WOT channel. this is probably racist but the way you cleared that cap was very…asian! very calculating and deliberate, leaving little to RNG. i can definitely learn a lot from you.
Great insight yet again. Well done. I noticed an interesting thing about the hitpoints of you and the lorraine at the end: 321 and 123. THAT’s why your symbiotic cooperation worked at the end ;)
hey zeven, do you think you could maybe pop into a training room and do a video focusing on 1v1 or 1v2 brawling micro?
+sociopathicpotato There are too many variables involved. It depends on what tank you are in, what tank you are up against and where you are on the map. In general, you want to maximize exposure if you have an advantage (health, dpm, etc.) and force them to chase into you if you are at a disadvantage.
How often do you misread the map and run into a couple tanks and die? I try to read the map, but with pubbies it is really difficult to guess where they’ll mass sometimes.
+tonster181g All the time… 🙂 Part of taking strategic positions on the map involves risk. You get better at reading it as it develops as you practice it more though, so you get “surprised” less. Always try to have an escape plan as well.
Great video, thanks for sharing Zeven.
I’m considering getting this as a Russian med crew trainer, but I’m worried that it’s weaknesses (speed, pen) will really stand out in Tier 9 and 10 games, and its strength (usable armor) will be nullified. Care to comment and/or post videos of Tier 9 and 10 games? This would help me make my decision. Thanks!
+BB-8 Munroe Yeah, it does struggle against tier 9’s and 10’s. I would not recommend it as a credit grinder (any of the preferred 8’s will do that with less stress). I do think it is a good Russian medium crew trainer though. I am averaging around 1100 experience (with premium) per game playing mostly solo through about 80 games. Do not forget that you will also get a 50% crew experience bonus on top of the 10% bonus experience.
I’m still deciding on the US or Russian med lines. I’m at tier 7 on both, and looking at crew trainers/credit grinders depending on which line I choose. What do you think of the tier 9 and 10 tanks in each line?What are your thoughts on the Super Pershing generally, and as a credit grinder?
+BB-8 Munroe i do both those lines, currently at t69/m46 with murica and 62a/ 416 in the russian tree with an obj 140 coming soon. 800+ battles in the SP as well, 2 gun barrel marks.
generally russian meds are considered better than american, i would say it’s mostly true. they are definitely easier to play well but i think suit a more focused playstyle and less all-rounder. if you favor brawling/assault and armor then russian will be the way to go, americans i find work best as light/med quasi-scout hybrids. it’s a more difficult playstyle but rewarding, imo.
the super pershing can be competitive with a good crew and some prem ammo, but the learning curve is steep. makes credits and XP fine. i would hold off until the HD remodel as they are reworking the armor at the same time.
As usual, fantastic commentary. The tank, though, will REALLY struggle in battles with a good number of T10 tanks. Low pen, even for the premium round, slow aim, and just sluggish overall…..without pref MM….nope!
+griphos5 Yeah, I note that a bit in both of the highlights we have done so far. Still, as far as the non-preferred tier 8 tanks, it is one of the better ones (the AMX CDC is good as well, but has similar limitations).
does this tank make bank?
Thanks for the video. My main issue with this new premium is the low speed. It’s going to make Tier 10 games very hard.
You rock Zeven… one of the (or maybe even THE) most educational channels out there!
+Golem WoT My thoughts exactly!
Definitely! And he’s the only one really giving relevant tips for good players who have already mastered basics like side scraping, camo mechanics, etc. Zeven is the only one focusing on general strategy and (re)positioning instead of local battle tactics.
Thanks for the vid. Usefull info ahead of the intro of the tank and I like the walkthrough of the tactics during the game.
