Just in time to be to late for the latest offer on the Valkyria Chronicles tanks (  :facepalm:  ) I managed to finish my Guide/Gameplay video on the Edelweiss, the lovely little Star of the Series. 

 

It's a tank that gets way too less attention, compared to the Lupus or other Fantasy tanks like the Dracula or the Helsing, yet it is one of the best Tier 7 tanks at all and a lot, really a lot of fun to drive. Plus it's the best looking Fantasy tank in the game (personal opinion). Anyway, as I felt it needs some love from the community I put up a movie with a short guide part and some gameplay, consisting of consecutive games including some Mastery games as well as regular gameplay and a few losses. To anyone who is spoiled by the high quality of the Vids by Sk8xtrm and Bushka please be merciful. :teethhappy: 

 

I'm sure it will be on sale fairly soon again and if anyone is not put off by the Edelweiss being a Fantasy Tank I can clearly recommend the little Fatty. It's as good a medium as it can be.

 

 

Ah yes, please Canny and Co., this here is a try to make the forum about tanks again. Comments on how protected I am because the KV1S missed that shot in the first games please into the MM-thread, I will happily answer all of them. This here should really be about the tank.

Nobody cares fantasy tanks unless they are blatantly overpowered.

Protected players even get different maps consecutively when they are making a guide. How convenient! :trollface:

Not got it, not going to get it (unless it drops in a crate like the Warhammer ones did), but glad to see a tank thread. :)

Denoobing member of the Active Frontline Klan - and proud of it.

Be nice to me..

It’s an ok tank, can’t think of a reason to drive it over the Rudy though or Panther or T 43.

Before...

 

 

 

 

 

...and after.

 

 

Or is it the other way round?

@Titus: the „before“ is the title song (cover) of the Amazon Series „The man in the high castle“... seems fitting, as both the series/book and the tank are fantasies in a WWII context ;)

 

@HariKari: the Panther is much less flexible. Its an amazing gun in a mediocre tank. The Edelweiss is much more balanced. The Rudy/T-43 is a tougher one and they are probably contenders for „best Tier 7 med behind the Dracula“ with higher DPM on the Rudy vs higher Alpha on the Edelweiss. Given how many IS-tanks you will meet the 15mm of extra Apcr Pen give the edge to the Edelweiss.

This tank has nothing going for it except being OP. It's a not historical and it's ugly. I wonder why even people bother.

What a great song fitting for an organized excursion into Switzerland from the north side and a motorcyclist meeting in Zurich.

What has the Helsing going for it?

Strolling down the avenue
Me and my shadow
Not a soul to tell our troubles to
And when it's twelve o'clock
We climb the stair
We never knock
For nobody's there
Just me and my shadow
All alone and feeling blue.

Ok, I’ve played and recorded 26 games. It’s 2:05 hours video of boring gameplay with a boring tank. I have to take out some useful content, but the video proves rigging - look at the session’s results and compare with previous session. The same cr@p of winning and losing streaks, and as always the last losing streak has ended with Ace Mastery. Everything was as always.

Btw, there is huge weakness and you will see it in Ace Mastery video - if you short-moving between the shots on terrain like in Dead Rail your gun’s aiming is flying all over the skies. Your position should be on absolutely flat terrain otherwise your aiming will change in the crucial moment.

The last game first. 

That was 26th game and 2 hours of playing with this boring tank.

I was extremely annoyed with gun’s aiming/shooting while on the move on unflatten terrain in previous games and focused on moving it right-left, forgetting everything else even switching to proper ammos. 

I find shooting really uncomfortable with this tank and shot in the sniper mode more than usual, because I couldn’t trust that sh1t. That instability on unflatten ground makes playing this tank really uncomfortable.

Gg, well done. You actually used the hulldown advantage of the Edelweiss in a very good way in the end..  I dont see what you mean by the aiming as you hit almost all your shots while on the move, other than that weird frantic left-right swinging you are doing at the beginning?

As I said, I was annoyed with a losing streak and 50% shots to the sky in previous games.
