I was interested in this very nice game with the Alecto, because I have only just bought mine back.
Mainly to play a few games in tier IV a bit, because sometimes they can be a bit more fun that all the much higher tiers.
I also bought the Wolverine, and am thinking about getting the T40 too, since the gun is high up, it is a bit better on ridge lines...I think, and of course my Hetzer I recently bought back.

Very nice game though Sir-Whippy.... :o7

Consistency is improving, but I still need to cause damage. Let's see how it goes next weekend with the ISU122 :-)

So I’ll be in Sydney summer for two weeks from tomorrow, on 4g with a laptop. From experience it means playing at 15FPS and 250ms lag, so watch for me in the LoydGC again....

Congrats on the 8 kills, shame it was t4 so no radley walters :(

A couple of questions

How big do you have your mini map and how often do you look at it? You missed several shots throughout the game that could have gotten you the ace.

Why use the 180 damage gun? From your play style I can see you prefer LRS but the 180 damage gun has such poor shell velocity you are missing so many shots against long range moving targets. I don't know if you have tried the 75 damage gun but the dpm is better, pen is better and shell velocity is almost twice as fast.

Good game though, must have been close to that ace, one or two more shots and you would have had it.

Thx guys. Excellent point on shell velocity Drogo. You'll see I loaded the 280dmg HE shells (470m/s) at the beginning of the game, as I was top tier and likely to be facing lights. I missed a couple of early long shots on the DW2 then switched to AP (590m/s) and played better after that. As to the gun, I switch regularly between the 6pdr, 25pdr and the 3.7" derp. They have completely different playstyles. The 6pdr is a monster when you have lots of cover around (Prok, Redshire, Murovanka) and the derp is lethal on city maps. I find the 25pdr an acceptable compromise. The Alecto has to relocate too often to get the full benefit of the 6pdr DPM.

And yes Jonesey, the rock descent was pretty risky, but the Alecto has a broad stable track and is really nimble. I wouldn't do that in a T-15 or AMX-ELC. :t3

Ok, got it right this time. Same map, same beast, smarter outcome. 9 kills, high cal and ace. The camo on the Alecto is astonishing. :chrg
