Gaming: Weekly Roundup 7/12/2013

Wizard 101

My current spell in Wizard 101 has come to an end. I was part-way through the second Grizzleheim sequence when my time came to an end. All in all it was good fun to play in the Spiral for a bit, and I may very well return on and off.

World of Warplanes

Very sporadic playing, on the whole. I did manage to achieve my second Ace, which made me smile. I have also gotten a few games in on my second Tier II aircraft, the Demon. I have to say I prefer the Bulldog. I am now undecided whether to get the British Tier III fighter or a different Tier II, but I am leaning towards getting the Tier III.

World of Tanks

As ever at the moment, this is where the majority of my gaming time took place. The chief highlight of the week was getting my first Pool’s medal, swiftly following by my first Crucial Contribution medal. There have been other good games too though, and it would be wrong to over-focus on any one particular tank.

One particular task I have had this week is playing on the GW Panther, taking advantage of the Interactive Special. So far the crew on the GW Panther is now at 95%, and I hope to be able to boost them a bit more before the end of the weekend. I am enjoying it very much, even with the stock gun. I am also enjoying the Tier IV German artillery I picked up, the Pz Sfl IVb. That has a insanely large gun arc for a SPG, much wider than many TDs. Very much enjoying it, and thinking I may stick with it for a time too to train up another SPG crew if I choose to keep the GW Panther (which I am already thinking about doing). I am now about two-thirds of the way to the top gun.

As to my other projects, I am just over a quarter done with both the grind to the IS-4 and the IS-3, and I have now unlocked the T29. I am really looking forward to the T29, and am hoping it is on discount soon. I am also slowly grinding towards the Panther II, but I still have almost all of that ahead of me. On the Ferdinand I am two-thirds of the way to unlocking the top engine, or one-third to unlocking the top gun. At the moment I am very much intending to do the engine first, however.

On the lower tiers I moved on from the T40. I am sorry to see it go, but I just don’t have the space at the moment. I have also now played my first game in the B1. I can easily see that is going to be an experience in managed frustration.

This weekend I want to make an effort to try and earn a day or two of premium time, and then looking forward there are two Interactive specials running at the same time, on the new German TD line and the Russian arty line. Interestingly the KV-2 is included in the Russian arty line, so I will probably use that as an excuse to get a few more games in with the boom-tank. Also going to take advantage of the bonus in skilling up the crew in the Marder 38T. I hope to get the two 75% crew either up to 100% before I move onto Pz Sfl IVc. Finally I hope to start training up a crew on the Stug III, which I will aim to either put into the Jagdpanther II or Jagdtiger at some point in time.
