Sunday Highlight 95 - The Grind

One thing all gamers dread is the grind. No game is really free. You only get to decide if you spend all your time on the grind, or use money to reclaim a portion of your life. Either way, you will pay with hours of your life you'll never get back. Is it worth it? Well, we continue to grind. Is that an answer? Maybe. Regardless, here is a video montage of the end of my Akizuki grind. Enjoy!

Sunday Highlight 94 - Japanese Gunboat

I finally get into the Akizuki in World of Warships and only a few games too late, as Wargaming nerfs the Shiratsuyu into oblivion in patch 0.6.8. No, I'm not bitter. #sarcasm However, I really like the Akizuki. She may only have four torpedo tubes and teeny 100 mm main guns, but the torpedoes have a 10 km range the eight guns in four double turrets fire every three seconds. Can you sing, "Come on baby light my fire?" I knew you could. I just wonder how long before Wargaming nerfs the Akizuki because BB players complain it causes too many fires.

Sunday Highlight 93 - Load the Gold

My first Ace Tanker match in the Hellcat, with a bit of a historical treatment to the video. I hope you like it. As for the Hellcat itself, this tank destroyer was evidently OP as hell...cat when Wargaming released it many years ago. They have since nerfed the hell...cat out of it. With a good crew, it performs adequately, but it struggles to penetrate higher tier tanks with it's anemic 160mm of penetration which drops to 135mm at max range, where you will have to fight it because it is too fragile for close or even medium range engagements. That means you'll have to dab the 2 key often, and then your rounds will still bounce as you'll see in this video. It is not what I would consider a noob friendly vehicle. YMMV.

Sunday Highlight 92 - Bert the Ace Tanker

In World of Tanks there is only one self-propelled gun that nearly everyone adores. He's Bert, called the avenger by some, but that was well before my time in the game. To me Bert simply embodies what all artillery in the game should be: lower damage, shorter range and unable to one-shot anything. Unfortunately artillery by its very nature is King of Battle for a reason, and in a game were distances are measured in hundreds of meters, artillery really has no place. Except for Bert. He's a good chap.

Sunday Highlight 91 - The 18 Derp Overture

Some people claim there is a Russian bias in World of Tanks. They say tanks like the KV-2 are overpowered at their tier. Perhaps the Russians simply have superior inspirational music. You be the judge.
