May 28, 2015
00:30 - Tank Teardown - Panther

00:40 - Moving up the German medium line VK 30.02 M to the Panther

01:46 - The Panther's place in WWII history
03:40 - The Panther was a medium to long range support tank - and so it is in Blitz
05:27 - Buy it to try it: Panther/M10 to check it out without the grind
08:00 - Panther and the line up to E50M are really "meavies" - medium/heavy hybrids
10:00 - German Panther - E50M Line = RAM ALL THE THINGS!
10:17 - The top gun on the VK M will help the Panther grind
13:25 - Panther upgrade path
13:58 - Which laser beam do you choose - the 8.8 or the 7.5 L/100? I pick the 7.5 L/100 for aim time, accuracy, and penetration
17:41 - Actually it was Robert Palmer Lokeen!
19:00 - The E50 and E50M are a different style and can brawl to some degree + great for ramming
21:00 - Support tanks are good at support
 
22:00 - Battlefield Breakdown of Desert Sands - the other desert map
25:00 - Heavies side scrape or reverse side scrape off the buildings in town
27:40 - Use the dips near the railway to hull-down and use crumbling walls for cover
29:55 - Tanking in your tank - possible XP bonus for taking fire later this year
30:40 - The desert flank - look for the Messerschmitt Bf 109. We said "Schmitt"!
33:32 - When the flank goes horribly wrong
35:10 - Rolling dunes in the desert make for hull down positions
36:40 - If you're not pushing you're not flanking!
40:24 - All on flank can win this map, but only if it's a surprise
41:50 - Short flank along the tracks can work in the right situation
43:25 - One side has better sniper positions
46:30 - Elevated TD sniper positions with no cover are generally a bad idea - once lit up you are dead
47:20 - End of the railway tracks can be a good TD or sniper position
49:21 - Beware, you can shoot under the rail cars across the map
52:00 - Low tier? Track the enemy when they expose themselves
52:12 - Lephturn hearts the ST-I
52:55 - Watch the early rush up to your side of the wall to light up your team
57:00 - Email Lephturn@tankboom.com or Lokeen@tankboom.com with your questions and suggestions!
58:02 - Out-takes - SCHMITT - we said SCHMITT!

02:00 - Russian developer Q&A with Overlord translation and fist-bump to Three60Mafia
03:10 - Leopard 1 line - German medium line
04:27 - Type 59 premium tank coming in 2015 and China will likely be the next country
06:15 - In upcoming patches configuration options will allow enabling/disabling of some graphics features
06:45 - The team with the Lowe loses - no more. Lowe and Super Pershing buffs coming
07:40 - Balance changes are minimal - mostly gun dispersion with some turret traverse an a bit of reload tweaking
08:30 - Clan wars coming, fix chat bug, and please filter/sort friend list!
09:27 - Oasis Palms will be redesigned - again - as it sees the most draws of any map
10:25 - Draws = loss so go for the win!
13:20 - TOG II (Weiner-mobile) in the tech tree for gold in 1.9
13:50 - Buff/Nerf list for 1.9: IS-7 and IS-8 buffed and the IS-3 nerfed hardest
18:55 - IS-8 buffed? The most rage-sold tank in the game will get re-bought again by many. Lephturn included.
