Hi. My name is Knickerson, and I’m addicted to the T49.

 

I don’t know what happened. I’ve been enjoying the subtlety of the Super Pershing, the grace of the AMX CDC, the bullishness of the T110 E3, even the Sneaky Pete T25 AT. But then I committed to some bor-rring grinds in the (soon to be collectable) German tier IIIs, IVs and Vs, and to break the monotony I took my T49 out for a spin. 

 

Now I can’t stop driving it. I’ve been cruising across the maps looking for ammoracks and engine fires. Type 62s, Borsigs, AMX 13 90s, LTTBs, even other T49s, they all sing like sirens to me. They call out, “Come to me, Knickers,” and I can’t help myself. Some want the Heat, some prefer the High Explosive, and I can only oblige. 

 

Sometimes frustration explodes when RNG takes my blessed shell into a wheel or the wrong part of the turret, or when I’m too hungry and blind to see the E-75 had seen me coming from halfway across the map. Silly Knickers. But all it takes is one <BOOM> and win or lose, it’s on to the next battle, and the next, and the next.

 

It’s the monkey on the my back. The driver in my golf bag. The silver in my veins. If you know of a support group for T49 addicts—keep it to yourself. I’ve gone fishing (for waffenträgers).

I’m with you on this mate....there’s a reason it’s my most played tank by a long way and given it’s been in the game for a fraction of time compared to most of my other favourites, I’ve played a huge amount in a short time.

 

I aced it again recently and just putting the finishing touches to a T49 Mastery Guide video....got some epic ammoracks in it....what a beast of a tank...love it :)

Once upon a time, I was addicted to T-28. Not long ago, I was addicted to Cromwell. Quite recently, I was addicted to Caernarvon and to preserve its stats, now I'm stuck with T-54 mod 1, a credit maker (and a proof that I'm a terrible wallet warrior).

A dedicated hater of KV-2 since day one. (Unpopular opinion :P )

Cruiser Mk.II CS.

 

(CS means ‘Close Support’.  It’s the historical version of the Cruiser II with the 3.7 inch howitzer.)

 

I have 600 battles in the Cruiser II.  Nearly all of them with the 3.7 inch gun.  Favourite game was one in which I derped a (slightly damaged) Kenny with 1 shot!

have u tried the lekpz mate ?

 

its the exact same tank with the stock turret, and a gun that shines with half of the 152mm alpha but lot more pen, half of the dispersion,  and 3 times the reload times.

 

plus I suspect that it makes more money than Lowe and it was sold for cheap just last week.

 

Just a simple game from tonight for exemple :

Read my guides there

"I want the game to be just how it was launched, no MM limitations for platoons, some unbalanced match once in a while, and friendly fire should come back as well. The only thing they should remove is statistics." -phony1907, 08 July 2016, 05:45pm - 

I want just that, and replay files.

I’m also with you mate! 2 days ago I stated on another thread I didn’t get on with it (sob) so I then took it out for a spin and boy did it catch me! So I then decided maybe I could do a vid, if only I could get a few good games in it, which the T49 rarely plays ball with me, so it was a tall order. I just couldn’t stop playing the little beast. Game after game I’d rain HE on poor unsuspecting victims, taking out some poor little med on top of the hill in castilla from what seemed miles away with a full on roll - oh the joy of this tiny monster! Why has it taken so long for me to finally understand you? Ok I’m no Pyschovadge so alas no aces, but a few class ones and a lot of destruction - in fact I think this is more fun than the KV2 for giving red players a bad day - but unlike the KV2 it demands subtle gameplay or it just says ‘no, I deserve a better player to drive me, so I’m no playing anymore’ - temperamental little thing that it is but so much fun and yes highly addictive indeed

I’m searching for a T49 addiction group

I used to hate T49 but now it's my go-to therapy T8 tank. If nothing else rocks my boat, I take my T49 and go full throttle to search and flank reds. Then run away while reloading. Fun tank!

T-34-85 broke my Duck addiction, KV-2 broke that one and now Rhm. Borsig is my 1 true love, ammo racking in tier viii is sooooo much more fun than tier vi :)

 

T49 hates me and misses on purpose, I’m sure it’s that or WG rigging, it’s defo not me ;)

Lttb. Being a racing driver I am addicted to its insane mobility. Never gets boring to play and I will try to reach 1000 games with it.

I liked the T-49 ATGM... like crack, in a thoroughly unwholesome way.

T49 is fun little tank definitely a keeper but would like to see a live stream of t49 rather than just best games , as I always seem to have a mm with lots of Russian heavies and it takes much longer to take them out along with the bouncy armour 

 

I need to start playing ru251 again that was great fun a while back ...

Jagdtiger because of crazy DPM

Leo PTA because of great gun and fly by-possibilities. Hard tank though

I was addicted to the Pz S35 for a long time, the only tank I could win more than 50 percent of my battles in :D

 

Nowadays I really enjoy the Tiger P, I can even bully tier 8 heavies in that thing :)

Hi my name is peddy.  I am addicted to the potato vodka powered one shot brute that is the SU-152 with derp gun.

 

Calibrated HE shells are my ammo of choice with occasional AP and HEAT for variety.

 

One shot kills of tinfoil armoured TD'S is my weakness, that and chasing our mediums to bring the naughty boom stick to bear on those enemy lights and mediums.  I really like wiping out those cheeky Amerikansi T49's with HE.
