To Early

So I’m not a morning person at all.  Even when I was on active duty, I couldn’t stand getting up for Physical Training every day at 0530.  No matter how early I get off after an early morning I feel drained for the rest of the day.

Take my current situation for example.  While I’m training as a Fire Marshal, I get up at 0330 in order to be to work by 0500.  The big problem for me is that I can never fall asleep befor 11pm so I’m only getting 4-5 hours of sleep a night.  Granted I get off at 1pm, but once I’m off all I want to do is take a nap.

I’ll be happy next week when I start 3rd shift which is from 9pm to 0500.  Tell me which work shift you prefer to work in the comments below.  Thanks again for reading.


So when it comes to Armored Warfare I generally try to run all of my tanks at least once a day in order to get my double XP.  Occasionally I have to run a tank multiple times as you only get the double XP from matches that you win.  By playing PVE however so long as you have a decent 5 man team running with you, it is fairly simple to win your first match in each tank, and you get a hefty xp reward for doing so.

Now when I first started playing Armored Warfare, which was during the early access, all I played was PVP.  Hybrd Recon, my buddy tried to get me to play PVE a few times, but I’m rather stubborn and felt that the best way to progress was by playing PVP.  Boy was I wrong.

In regards to XP gain, PVE has a more consistent gain than PVP.  Regardless of whether you win or lose your usually netting at least 600 XP per match in PVE, while XP gain in PVP is all over the place.  I’ve played many a match in PVP where I only got a whopping 100-200 XP, and when you’re in a higher tier vehicle 100-200 XP really does nothing for you.  So there’s one reason I prefer PVE.

A huge reason that I like PVE is that players actually seem to know their roles in the tank world.  Your reconnaissance tanks are moving forward to spot enemies and capture points while your tank destroyers and main battle tanks follow behind and clean up the enemy.  You would think this was common sense, but jump onto a PVP server and your mind will be blown.  In most PVP matches you will see your AFV’s and Recon vehicles camped firmly in the back with the artillery.  Some people may not think it a big deal but those vehicles have the best spot ability, so when they aren’t doing their job that makes the main battle tanks go in blind which usually leads to their eventual destruction.

The other issue I have with PVP is the matchmaking system.  I will start by saying that it is getting progressively better, but there are still plenty of matches where your tier 4 tank will be matched against tier 6 tanks, and for some reason your rounds just never seem to penetrate higher tier tanks which I think is the stupidest thing ever.  The only way for you to get good penetration on a higher tier is usually to hit them from behind and lets face it they most likely have friends behind them and you can only take 1-3 shots from a higher tier tank before your a burning wreck on the battlefield.

Now PVP isn’t all bad.  You can get in a really fair match at which point so long as your team plays their roles you can rack up a win.  The great thing about PVP matches is the money that you get for winning.  In a PVE match you get a pretty consistent $28k-$30k for winning while a win in PVP usually nets me upwards of $150k.  So my advice to new players is to play PVE in order to get good XP, and switch to PVP when you need to get money to buy your higher tier tanks.

Overall I just feel that PVE is the more player friendly choice and its fun as well.  As you replay maps on PVE you begin to learn where enemies spawn which just makes it that much easier to set up your vehicles and take the win.

As always I thank everyone for reading and any comments/likes/follows/and shares are greatly appreciated.
