I started playing World of Tanks again after a long absence. As usual, the quality of the graphics and sound have noticeably increased since the last time I played.
I play German tanks almost exclusively, focusing primarily on the SPG line (“self-propelled guns” — aka artillery, or “arty”). The highest tier SPG I have is the G.W. Tiger (tier 9), but I’ve kept the SPGs from the three previous tiers — G.W. Tiger (P), G.W. Panther, and Hummel — because they’re so much fun to play.
The Hummel is my favorite tank to play in the entire game.
I recently completed the final mission of the SPG campaign, which earned me my first female crew member.
I also like the German tank destroyers, and am currently building experience on the Jagdpanther and Jagdpanther II. A second line of tank destroyers has appeared in the game’s research tree, so I’ve started along that one as well with the boxy Pz. Sfl. IVc (the “toaster”).
I like the Jagdpanther, but the lower tier StuG III is probably my favorite tank destroyer.
I used to play light tanks a lot, but they’ve fallen out of favor for me after I earned my Mastery badge with the VK 28.01 after I killed five tanks in one game with it a few years ago:
I used to play medium tanks a lot, too, but that tapered off quite a bit once I researched my first heavy tank. After discovering that I’m just not very good at playing heavy tanks, my focus moved primarily to SPGs and tank destroyers.
Here are a couple more photos from the game as it looks now:
And here are some videos I just made:
