hopefully someone can clear this up for me. i seem to always get shot by tanks i can never see. just a few hours ago my matilda got tracked and i sat helpless in a field for about 30 seconds while i would guess at least 3 enemy tanks (not arty) bounced 20+ shots on me before one finally got me. i was looking around the entire time and was never able to spot a single tank. is there some sort of cover mechanic or something im just missing? this is just one example of many in which there are several tanks hitting me for an extended period of time and yet i'm unable to spot them and fire back.

yep. there is a cover and line of sight mechanic. you could have been spotted for just long enough for their arty to tag you...might explain why you got tracked while the other shots just bounced off. theres also some upgrades for tanks that increase the viewfinder range too.

Started playing again...broke down and bought a Super Pershing...pretty good credit maker but so slow. Just unlocked my KV4 and my T29 because I wanted to go American heavies too. KV4 is interesting to play...I only have the 122MM and tracks upgraded right now.

I just started up again too. I have too many lines I'm trying to play/level up:

German:
  • JT
  • E75
  • Panther II
  • JT 8.8 for creds
Russian:
  • KV4
  • Obj 212
Misc
  • US: T25/2
  • UK: Cromwell
  • France: AMX 13 90

I'm also tier 5-6 on Chinese mediums, Russian TDs, French heavies, and UK TDs. I have a problem.

How do you play the KV4? I know how to play my Super Pershing but I can't seem to figure out whats best for my KV4...

Also I have a bunch of US tanks I dont want to get rid of either!

Jumbo
Easy 8 (so fun to play)
T20 (has modules Im too cheap to sell)
Pershing
Priest

I started the German TD line but got to the Jgdpz and sold it...

Can't believe I missed this post. I play my KV4 as a support heavy, it's armor is good but not great enough to really brawl and the slow turret traverse and reload don't make it great by itself. I usually try to get in the thick of things where all my teammates are and just angle best I can.

As for the German line, I would really suggest grinding past the JP4. The JPanther and JP2/Ferdi make up for it.

I finally got to the Indien like four months later, but I worked pretty hard on some of the other lines. I got to the T28P on the American TD line, finished Russian arty and German TDs as well. Up the AMX 1390, Centurion, and T-43 on those respective lines too.

As much as I want a prem. tank, I can't understand why someone would ever pay $50+ for a tank in-game.
Is money just spilling out of your pockets?
Maybe it's that I'm in college...
