Yeah I have definitely noticed that platooning helps my win rate considerably, then again so does good equipment...

Those bastards.



Curse them.




They sucked all the fun out of the Su-26. Turret rotation is terrible, accuracy within the aim circle is terrible, fewer shells are terrible, slower reload is terrible.

I may just sell it now, out of sheer spite.

yeah they fucked it more than was indicated in the update news. The accuracy is way off. Usually hitting outside a fully zoomed in target area.

let me tell you though, it is still accurate enough to hit a tog annoyingly regularly...

Pretty good run last night with my Churchill 3. That 6 pounder can spit them out.

Why are you not a clan member yet? I see that you have gotten the Raider medal, how did you manage that?

oh BTW, dang good round.

Ever feel like you've brought a knife to a gunfight? Check out this lineup......



I didn't do too bad though......3rd on my team and my Tier 10's had a clue what they were doing. I did hold my own. Check out the damage I did to that AMX50B. Gotta love hit skins and fire.





On another note, anybody have a clue about the following image?



This guy had a weird background on the screen and I was just curious what it meant. Never seen anything like it before.

That background looks like a black and white version of the in game chat... weird.

ok, now I am done being bored for the night, time for me to go to bed for a few hours, back to work at 2pm.

I remember that one.

It was with my Grille. I sat off in the corner as usuall with arty. Everyone died except one guy on the other team. I drove to their flag and captured. Apparently, I was never close enough to the enemy for them to pick me up the whole game.

As far a clan, I do not think that I am good enough. I have had some real stinkers.

We don't compete in Clan Wars (at least for now), and even if we did, it doesn't matter how good you are to us. You're a member on this site and that's all that matters. You want an ADV sticker on you tank, just tell me your WoT user name and the invite will be sent.

I've got dozens on my ignore list, once in a while they pop up in public matches; intentionally cause more damage to them when I encounter them scumbags.
