T34 - Ace Mastery Badge

About the Author

About Jim Starkweather (staff_Jim)

I started building models in 1971 when I was 6. My first model was a 1/32 P-40 Warhawk. Revell I believe. From there I moved onto the standard cars, Apollo spacecraft, and other kid orientated kits. I don't know what got me started on Armor. I must have seen a Monogram tank kit one day and said "Mom...


Nice video Jim I have just ranked up to an M1 but I'm generally getting slaughtered I haven't thought about buying a premium heavy tank and I only use basic ammo and cheap repair kit, on any of my tanks. I do try and hit the weak spots on the enemy but more often than not I cause most damage only to have someone else get the kill! A "team" game so that's not a major problem, just very frustrating I have done it myself though so I shouldn't complain too much My biggest mistake seems to be that I am the one that goes for the base while everyone else just fans out to their favourite spots to get as many kills as possible? What is you call sign on WoT, Armorama? I think that you did say that at the start of the vid. It would be great if we could team up some time, but I my max tier is VI (it might be VII but I don't take that much interest in that I am just trying to improve my game play)

This game looks so good, but as a Mac user I can't join in the fun I may have to get a laptop soon as I've been watching the World of Warships alpha testing trailer now that looks cool, any one for D-day?

Lucky, get a lap top and join in My call sign is Typhoon247 on WoT, but I don't know how to hook up to voice chat during the game? After posting here I went on WoT and simply got slaughtered in every game!

Hey Mal! Thanks. Sorry I missed this reply but had a busy week after our nationals IPMS show here 2 weeks ago. It would be great to platoon, but sadly you have to be on the same server to do that and you are on the EU server obviously. I am indeed 'armorama' on the NA West server though. Keep up the practice. I see from your other recent topic you are up to the Cromwell. Great tank!! Probably one of the best medium tanks in the game. Cheers, Jim

I'm about half way through the grind on the T32 and it's actually been more fun that I was expecting. The T29 was also fun. Using the 90mm on the T29 is almost more fun than the 105mm as it still pens most stuff, and it's rate of fire is much better. My profile: LINK But I rarely have a premium account, let alone buy any premium tanks.

Guy's can any of you tell me the system requirements for the game. If been on the Wargaming.net website but can't seem to find any info. I'm looking to install either windows 7 or 8 (which do you recommend?) onto my Mac mini using bootcamp 5 that way I only have one computer but can switch from windows to Mac as the need arises.

Hey Luciano, you might find this link useful ; LINK Kind regards,Sven

Thanks Sven, OK looks like it will run it with ease just concerned about the graphics as the Mac has the Intel HD Graphics 4000 installed.

I am grinding the T32 now. That initial stock turret is awful though. With 114mm of frontal it gets penned by EVERYTHING. Hiding and sniping or using free xp I guess. Cheers, Jim

Yup, that stock turret is awful. With the new one, you can easily play the US style of hull down and wreak some havoc. I'm about 40k away from the M103, and can't wait.
