My Vista machine died a horrible blue screen death (complete with sounds of metal seizing), so all I have left is my Windows 7 desktop and my wife's Mac lap top.

I've bounced a BUNCH of BL10 shots off of various VKs in various matches.

The culmination was on Erlemberg in B2. There was a VK and a T34 sitting side by side facing me. I shoot the VK in the turret - nothing... I shoot the T34 (in the turret) and take 700 out and he dies. I turn back and shoot the VK in the lower belly head on.. nothing and then he turns to run away and I shoot him broadside and nothing.

On the flip side, I got to club a couple of baby seals, er, one shot a couple of Jumbos last night.....

Tankers!
The next update is on the horizon, and with it comes a swirling host of new vehicles for the British, German, and Soviet forces. In addition, we hope you're prepared to rediscover all those nooks and crannies on four updated maps: Steppes, Ensk, Fisherman's Bay, and Live Oaks!
British Tree


We'll have much more information for you as the public test and the release of the 8.4 update approach. For now, we hope these images do something to sate your appetite.

Looks like a Churchill III without the flat (weakspot) face plate (and instead a hatch just below to penn )

it's nice that this piece of shit keeps tracks of wins/losses and credits gained/lost during the current session.

5/13 today in a variety of tanks

So I don't shoot asshole teammates. That benefits them. They get exp awards. You pay for that. Not worth it. Just leave the game, play another tanks.


And this game needs new maps before it needs new tanks.

Imagine a flat map.

No cover.

No terrain.

Just tanks.

I'm thinking that would be seriously intense.

Kind of like when some hacker transports the whole map's worth of DayZ players to the same location for a ThunderDome. Yeah, it's extreme, lol.

The map we all love to hate - Dragon Ridge with the Rice Patties... wouldn't it be interesting if they made a center flag version of it and put the flag in E1 with us starting in the same 8 column like we do now?


100% agree with you Unga - more maps, less tanks. I'm already confused enough when I run into a WZ-ABCDEF on the field and have no idea what it is or where to shoot it
