Not me

I just have a job where it is easy to have the forums up in between putting out fires.

I grind what little I can when I get home. I have to leave the house at like 3 am tomorrow, so I haven't decided if I want to just stay up all night, or be a responsible adult and get a full nights sleep.

Decisions, decisions.

ok, so I installed the Roughnecks mod, and it only seems to partially work. Following the directions it does not install completely for me, 3 tries and no joy. I guess I get to wipe WOT and try another mod pack.

AIO mod is working very well for me. Added a sound mod on top of that as well. Made the game much more enjoyable for me.

You do have to learn how to play with a tank that is so slow. The maps are entirely different, because by the time you chug to where you normally would go, the battle has evolved.

Give it time, you may grow to love the T28. For what it's worth, the T30 and T110 have similar stats in that they have squishy sides and rear, with good turret armor...Both of those don't have the beefy frontal plate that the T28 has though.

I've been aiming for the T110E4. Did you end up there or with the E3?

I feel that once I get the big gun, I'll really like it. Only 5k xp until that which I could knock out tonight easily. Upped the engine already and that helped a little. Much more driveable.

I ended up with the E4. Generally speaking, I can't stand anything that doesn't have a turret.

The E4 is a lot of fun. Bounces a lot more than the T30 did.

I'm sure I'll sell the PT because the Leopard 1 is the same tank only better; I'll probably still keep the Indien.

Tried playing tonight despite clogged sinuses from the (well worth it) dust-ride on Sunday.

At the end, ended up with two tier 8's on my team that were deathly afraid of a single Tier 7 (the _BAD_ player, Gregor), while I was one-shottable, and solo on my side of the map save for an utterly useless SU-100 that didn't want to come up and help. I'll let you be the judge of my team's Hummel artillery effectiveness.

My Lowe teammate actually stated "Well, looks like a Draw" when he and the T32 were too afraid to take on Gregor's T29 with three minutes left to go. I had to rely on lady luck, take out who I could, and push in.

I gave up playing the game for tonight - not worth the effort with a sinus problem. I just wanted a good time.



Good XP though.

This is worth getting out of bed and typing up for those interested in history I guess.

"The use of tank destroyers in the artillery support role [firing as artillery] during the North Africa campaign spurred Allied Forces Headquarters to inform the War Department that field commanders wanted tank destroyer battalions to improve their capability for indirect fire. A TD battalion had the same number of pieces as three battalions of light field artillery, and by the end of the campaign, TD battalions had fired more rounds in artillery missions than in any other role." pg. 70

Kinda boring till 6:30 or so. Resetting the cap against those 2 fellas in a little TD. I was doing fine till they landed one one my engine. I figured my Team, with what 4 tanks? Could have made it to cap.

yeah that's some bullshit. I knew the GWPanther wasn't worth a shit after the nerf. Rarely hits and when it does it's for just a couple hundred damage. To further illustrate my point, I just direct fired into the side of an IS3 from about 50 yards and did just over 300 damage

I'm done with that SPG.

I played the M53 for a couple games, still liking it. Quite a ways to go before I get the big gun though.

Super P seems to have lost it's edge. Plays like a slow M46, but pays a bit more.

I have a helluva crew from my Stug, or I have a decent one in the SU-101. Thinking about selling the Super P and getting either the Jagd 8.8 or the SU-122-44. Thoughts?

And yeah, I've been patiently waiting for WoWarships too. I've enjoyed naval sims going back to the early 90's and playing silent hunter and the various Janes sims.

My thoughts are that the German line continues to be not worth investing in over the long term save for their premium tanks. Between tiers 7 through 9 there are a few good ones, but for all the effort the end-game of tier ten sorta sucks. As long as you keep specific tanks / TD's (not higher tier arty) just for fun, it's an OK group of tanks to dabble in. I'd go for the 8.8 just to make more Silver.

I haven't played my Super P much, so I can't say that I'm selling it.
