lost this one.... wonder what it would have been if we won...







In the end, I was trying to hide in a corner since I was the last one left. Did 450+ dmg to the T34 that finally got me after arty tracked me.

I'm going to miss the IS bonus weekend.

So yeah, a mobile tank with a BIG gun is a lot of fun. What other tanks fit that bill? The IS can take a few hits, but not a lot.

He'll start yelling at his own platoon.
I am ventureing a guess that he ment to type that to the team, but was so irritated that he couldn't see it said "Platoon"...

AAAAANNNDDD apparetnly I should read all the posts before I respond...

That would be a great guess, and it may very well be correct - but I'm going with the story that he started yelling at us

though it seems unlikely, the same gun on my T28proto was definitely giving me more damage and better penn than when it's mounted on the T30

I wonder about things like that .. because I'm sure the tier 10 BL-10 gun was giving me far better damage per shot on the Tier 8 ISU-152 than on the Tier 9 OBJ-704.

you were probably seeing a different mix of tiers with the ISU than the OBJ, that would account for some of that I would think.

New site to play with... NoobMeter.com.

for example, http://noobmeter.com/player/na/spearfisher ... obviously not the best stats in the world, but it is what it is.

Interestingly, I can click a link to my clan to see my ranking in that clan by some measure I don't understand (since so many different programs use different efficiency calculators).
http://noobmeter.com/clan/na/_UF_/1000007224 - I'm 17th.

But you can get PIE CHARTS! We ALL love PIE Charts! right? anyway...



Maybe the site only came around recently, or... I have no idea why the max I can look at is 1,298 battles... it would be neat to see my last 5k and 10k battles. Now what math are they using to have percentages all equal something way, way over 100% as a total? I have no idea.

And then that site led me to another site to see my clan history...

http://duckandcover.ru/wotka?nicknam...er=NAm&lang=en

I can't get my 'print screen' button to copy it for some reason, but you can click on that to see an example of mine, then try it for yourselves.
