Thanks for the advice about the M3 Lee. I did not think I was going to like it but I had a killer run with it tonight. 4 kills seems to be my magic number i can not seen to break that streak. But I have a 61% win rate with it now. I run the edge of the map and just sneek up on people.

For those of you that missed it, due to the server down time this morning, if you have a premium account today they should have added another day to your premium account.

Also everyone got the tier 1 Chinese tank, and a garage slot with it.

not pissed because of the speed, but because he has been having a horrible time hitting things...

last night we found out that it is possible to get in the same match if you are coordinating when you hit the battle button, however Barike ended up on the other side of the battle.

Pretty sure it's just the Tier 9 non-premium Type 59 with a bigger gun. I don't think the premium Tier 8 Type 59 is back.

Comically, due to an add-on that I copied over from 8.2 which made the sideways tech-trees appear vertical again ... I don't even show the Chinese tech tree at all.

The only way I can get into it is from the upgrade tree of the Chinese tank I have in the garage right now.... and even then it only shows one tank at a time.

Jesus, I just skipped the JagdPz IV last night, jumped straight from stug to JagdPanther. Still probably saved money from a buy-sell-buy cycle, though...

Hell yeah I'll be grinding on the hellcat and building up some savings

I wonder how many +70% hellcat rounds it'll take to pay for one IS7 round
