For Fun, I'll start typing up these sorta stuff These are supposed to be a WOT Blitz version (I know it's odd and that I'm mad :playing:)  of what governments post to their citizens when traveling to countries that are dangerous. Into official tone now

 

TRAVEL ALERT FOR TANK: Nation: FRANCE

 

 

WE URGE PLAYERS TO AVOID DIRECT PLAY OF THE FRENCH TD-SAu 40 and advise to free-xp or abandon the line 

 

Due to the horrible nature of this tank destroyer and the 'immense grinding' that this tank will require before moving to the S35 CA. There have been reported cases, of this tank performing terribly in battles, and the increasing risk of being targeted by other tanks in the game, namely the Durchbruchswagen 2, BT-7 Artillery, Light tanks as well as tier 5 tanks.

 

 

WE STRONGLY ADVISE NOT TO FAILTOON IN THIS TANK, DUE TO THE INSURMOUNTABLE RISK OF DEVASTATION YOU WILL FACE.

 

The SAu has non-existent armor and will not be able to hold against even tier III light tanks. If you are to stay in this tank, always be with your team, as this will become your saving grace. Otherwise, you will become increasingly prone to attack and therefore, destruction. We do not advise you to play with the 105 mm gun and therefore advise the 75mm gun as best for combat. The SAu 40 is also not considered by the Department of Noobs and Unicums as having good view range and therefore, it would be wise to avoid serving actively on the front line, but act as support for your fellow tankers (who might not always save you, considering the number of new players in  the game and so inexperienced). The SAu 40 has horrible traverse, and you will find it extremely difficult to counter the fast tanks in tier III, IV and V. If you are forced into positions like these, head to a solid wall/hill to avoid being circle-of-deathed or to the 'safety' of your fellow tankers (if you can reach there). 

 

We would advise players, who wish to advance onward to either accumulate at least 15,000-16,000 Free EXP  to skip this tank or spend 560 gold in order to do so, or to abandon the line and wait for the Wargaming government to upgrade or 'buff' its status, although the time that may take for this can be indefinite. Be noted that your Goldcare aid does not extend to the tech tree

 

Sincerely 

ERWINROMMEL1915

Self-Appointed Adviser to the Department of Noobs and Unicums

You can probably extend this to tier 2,3,6 and 7 too.

 

I'm still undecided on the tier 5.

At the moment, the SAu 40 has 1,076 DPM without equipment and provisions.  That's equal to the T40 - but the T40 has much better mobility, better frontal armour, much wider gun arc, and better view range.

 

In the feedback thread for the French TD's, I've suggested that the SAu 40 be buffed with an extra 2 rounds per minute on its 75mm gun.  This would give it 1,396 DPM before equipment and provisions.  The SU-85B has 1,386 DPM with it's 85mm top gun, and the SU-85B has better mobility.

I want just that, and replay files.

That's honest and sensible. It has the potential for being an asset, as people expect **Rommel** players to be bad, so if you are any good...

You could ask for other players to report your username (he was a Nazi general after all). IIRC that changes your name to Inappropriate-Username123456 or such, and you can change it again to something of your liking for free, but just once. I thought it was in the TOS but can't find it right now...

That totally explains why you're leaving... the thrill has gone." (#BYEWG!THX4FUN)

You speak better than me.

its not that the name is so bad it's just that it is one of the most used, and it is usually used by really bad players.

however I understand, when asked a name upon first use, how can we make good choices ? 

I like my name I guess I got lucky.

Worth trying.

go to someone, maybe a good friend, or at least some good enemy. show some Turkish or German pride and insult Armenian people. 1,5 million of them died in 1915 in the hands of the Turks and the Turks  were allied with the German, many of them actually live in Germany.

This someone should take screenshots and report you.

if you are tired of the Rommel, I think your free name is pretty much ready.

 

btw erwinrommelErwinRommel wasn't a nazi and he didn't commit any war crime.

maybe an opportunist and a careerist but by today standards who isn't (:/)

he was a professional heer defending his country regardless the politics. 

He was very much respected and admired even by the allies. 

Thats how he can still receive admiration today without it being much disputable. 

 

 

Last word : sorry we derailed that funny thread so fast :/

Well, Romell was one of the guys who took part in Hitler's "asasination" ( the thing failed ), so he had to chose between suicide and the martial court (as he was injured after the African

campaign, people thought he was dead ), so he killed himself. He is not a war criminal, he was controversial like Antonescu...

 

P.S. : I felt like I had to wrote this, altho is completly off-topic :)

I am accumulating XP Free and I buy the tier 7 directly. I have very little left. I do not like to sell anything, but to accumulate garbage either
