As reluctant as I am to say this, though ... Titus wasn't actually a bad character. Sure he was a smurf marine, but he actually, in the words of /tg/, 'got shit done'. And he sort of defied that codex thing while doing so.
Plus, he was done with that warboss. And you can't say that

Titus crushing Nemeroth's face with his (gauntleted) hands while in free fall from a SPACE ELEVATOR
wasn't awesome.

Two hours and then some playing against 7 AI in Age of Mythology on Titan difficulty.

FUCK YEAH I WON


First the Greeks who wouldn't stop pestering me. Then the other Greek. Then the Atlanteans. Then the whole rest. All destroyed by my mighty Nordic super Ulfsarks and Hersirs.

Then the Egyptians release two Titans who decide to rofle stomp my cities because they're racists.

90 Ballista later, two less Titans and a long siege war against two Egyptians with Set's favour turtling against my many siege engines.

It was good. Really, really good.

Holy shit, World of Tanks is awesome. Even the shitty T1 tanks are fun to play in. I'd move up to T2, but I'm trying to save up the funds to buy a better-trained crew.

Welcome! Do note that it's not really worth saving for 75% crew until TIV-V and up; TI-III can be ground pretty quickly and you'll generally drop them to save space. Out of curiosity, what lines are you planning to follow?

Also the mandatory screencap of the day. Yes, that was directed at me.

Goddamn, keeping Ireland together on Crusader Kings 2 is hard. I've suffered 3 or 4 civil wars over the course of this game and I've lost each one. I hate my sisters, they're always the ones taking my throne. Maybe "chaste" isn't such a bad idea after all...

Oh yeah, and I was excommunicated. Minor issues.

I've realized my general folly and, yes, I'm now saving up to work on bigger and better tanks rather than better soldiers.

I'm even considering the potential merits of just keeping my T1/2 pilots around and re-training them for later tanks.

Right now, I'm probably going to be heading up the German TD route. I'm still only on T2, though.

Edit: Ohmuhgawd the Cunningham. There's something beautiful about being able to take on 3 enemy tanks in CQC and kill all of them.

Do note that retraining results in a skill drop. I think the drop from 100% is to 75%, and it still costs money to retrain them. And you can only (IIRC) retrain crews for the same class of tanks for the same nation.

Ah. Guess it's better to just hire new crew.

In that case, what tier should I start worrying about buying higher-level starting crew?

It depends on the lines you're running, but generally around TIV-V. Tier IV will mostly be lights, as a lot of the light tank lines end there. There are, of course, plenty of TIVs that you will be spending as little time in as possible, like the Lee. Keep in mind that TV-VI are going to be your main moneymakers; higher tier tanks cost more and more to maintain, and if you're just pubbing it up you'll need to run a lot of battles with your TV-VIs to support them. The sort of tank that you'll be keeping around for a long time/forever are the M4 Sherman and the KV-1, both of which are gateway tanks and quite good in their own rights. You're talking about ~65-70k exp to Elite either of those, and that alone is worth the crew grade investment. Personally, I don't think I'll see a day where my M4, KV-1S, or A-20 are ever sold off.


Hitting 100% crew training opens up the very important aspect of crew perks/whatever you want to call them, and training crew takes a long time, hence why buying the 75% is very, very good for keepers. Also, once you've Elited a tank, you can redirect all experience it earns (save for free experience) into training the crew.

Which German TD is going to be the 'keeper', if any? Or should I just quit that train while I'm still ahead and focus on something else entirely?

I can't speak entirely accurately on TDs, as the only line I've followed is the German one, and that only up to the Hetzer. That said, it's common knowledge that both the Russian and German TD lines are very good. Personally, I plan on keeping my Hetzer at least until I've elited my (as-yet unresearched) StUG, possibly beyond. Even the Marder II can be worth keeping; one of its guns is killer if you don't mind being a complete glass cannon.

By the by, if you are ever on and want to do a platoon of two, I'm up for figuring out how. FlyingDice ingame, predictably enough.

Platoon is easy. You just go to the drop-down under 'Battle!' and select Platoon. That brings up the interface.

Also, fuck T18s. Nothing sucks worse than seeing that bastard shrug off half the shit you throw at it.

Just wait, the shit MM can throw at you is unbelievable. Nothing like being a stock T-V heavy in a T-VIII fight.

I know how to deal with futility. When you spend enough time to get 100,000 credits with T1 tanks (and a single T2) and keep going to get enough to buy a T3 while still staying over 100k, you learn how to deal with everyone else in your group being complete fucktards. You also get used to being 1 on 3 versus superior vehicles.

That's when I saw an SPG in front-line combat.

Yeah, it happens. To be fair, though, they can be good TDs if played well, and in circumstances where there's no other option. I've seen plenty of matches come down to a couple arty and 0-1 other tanks on each side, forcing the arty to fight each other up close. They used to be a lot easier to play as TDs though, back when there was still a way to get into sniper mode with them (rather than arty or 3rd person view).

They really should make the Marder's second gun a little cheaper on the research points. It's ridiculously infuriating when you have an enemy within 50 meters of you, lined up, and side profile and you get to hear your rounds dink off its armor.

That was a strange, strange game of Gmod. I was on a Dark RP server with my friend and I ended up eventually being sucked into a cult that worshipped cones, witnessed space snakes flying around, got into a holy war with the CPs, created weird shots with lights and windows, and all sorts of other random stuff. My friend joined the Neon Nazis who opposed the cult for a bit but they fell apart towards the end and a good chunk of their members joined us.
