We had a bit of a brawl.. we were down by 3 at one point but managed to hold off the rush and eek out a win.

3600 damage? Everybody gets lucky

As did Gretchen and Lille.






I was going to give my IS3 a female name but I can't read Russian well enough to know what any of the inscriptions say
The Super Pershing got dubbed "Ole Mud & Ruts" and the Pershing "Tornado".

here are some screen shots from platooning this afternoon.



Ed is naming his tanks now.



yep, put a name on another one.



This last one is Ed saying how his hatch feels funny.

So you are sitting there defending.. minding your own business while you wait for the enemy to arrive.. and all of a sudden you feel something in your arse...

I play Tier 8 a lot (I have 6 tier 8 tanks) - this is the first time I've ever seen an all 30-tank Tier 8 battle.



Twice yesterday we had battles with 10 platoons in them (5 per side).

I've been in the closest I've ever seen to an alll tier-8 battle recently, but that one is awesome. Looks like they're tweaking MM, and that's about as fair as it gets. I hope to get in one soon.

Could be MM tweaks, could be a bunch of people trying to make an insane push to Tier 10 for a free t-shirt.

We don't know anyone doing anything like that do we?

I was teasing Jason last night as he was grinding for 6 million credits that if he was paid minimum wage per hour grinded this would be a $10,000 t-shirt

Question:

Why did I finish second? I did more damage, damaged one more tank, and killed one more tank than first place?

TYPE 59 CHEAT!! That's why!! (tic )

More shots on target, or a medium lasting the battle and doing equivalent damage to a heavy.

Smaller tanks and guns get better XP for equivalent damage and stats.

More penetrations? Threw more lead? I've seen that with other non-premium tanks vs me.

Sam: here's the dust issue I was telling you about when you have everything on maximum.
Sure looks real - but it's probably a small bit of handicap (watch out for that rock! THUMP )

That's one of my favorite maps. What motherboard/cpu/video card do you use?
