I want you guys to take a look at the final scores for my entire team.

I kept killing, yet when I looked up I saw we had zero kills... and somehow they continued to fight every kill I was making the entire game.

I took this screen-shot in-game just as the last tank, our T1 Heavy, was dying. He didn't get a kill either.

Sorry to laugh Dave but you just cheered me up. I didn't get to play much to day and had some shit teams and lost more than I won... But somehow knowing I didn't have THAT team has cheered me up

2 TopGun awards in 10 battles for my SU-26 yesterday; I guess the nerf wasn't too bad or having 360+% crew just compensates for the nerf.

Tier 9/10 battle last night I was aiming the M40/43 at an IS-8 that I had just hit previously. He was on the back side of a slight slope. I hit the bang button and a fella in a speedy Chinese tank runs right into the shells flight path going after the same tank. I musta hit him square cuz he died from almost 100% health. The fine from that partyicular battle cost me 20k in silver after repairs/ammo.

I gotta figure out how to mark my targets before shooting.

I did get Kamikaze inthe Cromwell last night by ramming a Panther in Fishermans bay. A T21 was doing the circle of death and I hit him full speed That's a fun ramming tank. Nobody really appreciates ramming these days

I had a good ram kill in my SU-152 yesterday. Started on the southeast corner of Fjords, went due north up and around. We had the center under control, but there was a Dmax exposed around the corner coming across the north side that I knew the T49 in front of me couldn't deal with, so I charged. I come around the corner and not only was it a Dmax, there was a full health Sherman with him. I took a snap shot on the Sherman and he vaporized and then rammed the Dmax for the second kill in about 5 seconds. Yeah, we won that one.

Not playing anymore until they add new maps. Done.

frecks is right, it is now the F2 button.

BUT... it used tobe the "T" key, so many of us have re-mapped the "T" key to what the F2 key initiates. This, in a lot of our experiences, is so much easier to hit while working the controls with the left hand. It's a fine motor skill, now, where the longer reach for the F2 key would be a stretch for most people's hands / fingers while driving a tank around. Arty, of course, may be a little more relaxed, but I leave my left hand on those driving keys even when playing arty anyway.

I changed my driving keys to the arrows. I can't drive using letters because I don't spell very well.

1 battle away from my ST1.

I regret my learning curve and how shallow it was

I started out buying new crews for each tank.
and apparently I can research a tank but not buy it, and still get xp towards the next tank? if I had that bit of information, I wouldnt' have racked up 180k xp in my IS3 while on the fence about buying the next one.



Sadly, when I get my ST1 I probably will have to run my T34 for awhile to make some money

Ahh, so this is why Darwinism will now favor the evolutionary trait of having long fingers. My ability to reach the F2 key with ease in a virtual tank warfare game shall lead to my eventual world domination.
