Arty update

Wow...5 battles and the crew is already up to 77%.....now I admit it has been a LONG time that I have had a 50% crew...but they seemed to get there pretty quick....I will play a few games with it tonight and see how it does.

We drew again but just couldn't get that last win and then eventually lost to give them the required 3 wins for the match.

I'm not sure where we went wrong but I for one just couldn't quite get into a working flow and found myself floundering around a little bit aimlessly.

It was good fun and I'm looking forward to platooning again with, after a break, maybe entering another of these challenges...

Thanks to all who helped with advice, TS channels, stand in's and to the team...

Great fun...

It was a great experience doing that tourney with you. Thanks for making it happen.

have you TK'd or pissed anyone off lately?

I'm still working on the theory that if players register a complaint about you.. the game nerfs you for a while to teach you a lesson

I stripped my machine down on Monday and vacuumed two cats, a dog, and 3 rabbits worth of hair out of the thing.
Those 320 mm fans really like to pull crap in

I've been playing two years. I've paid ... $110 so far. For a casual player first 2 months should be fun with no money down. After that, YMMV.

Mike.. step away now... Salida doesn't have enough bandwidth
It's FREE! Just like your first hit of crack cocaine.



p.s. Kate is going to kill you when you say "I'll feed the baby in a minute.. I'm just need to kill this Pershing first!"
p.s.s. when should I drop by for a visit and a shot at the Arkansas? (pre-hatch rush)

Here's one we were complaining about a while back:

Returned the option to train crew members for tanks missing in the hangar. A separate warning window has been added for this purpose

...and

Fixed the ammo order during a turret or gun change

...but I'll bet it still defaults to gold ?

Considering I'm about to unlock the T95, BatChat, M48, and T-54 literally at the same time, this is awesome!

WoT needs a premium French medium ... I guess $110 is about to turn into $140 or so eh?

BOOOOOOOO.. they nerf'd my next target tank's reload 1/2 second

WZ-132

Reloading time for 100 mm 59-100T gun is changed from 8.6 sec. to 9.1 sec.


...and they raised the engine price

Cost of the engine 8V135 is changed from 43,000 to 49,000

Now that you mention it, no. But I was on a he'll of a win streak while we were in the tournament, and the bad streak started as soon as we lost.... Hmmmm.

sent from my abacus.

If I remember right, about 3 weeks after your birthday.

You're welcome any time, but I'm going to be working 6 day weeks for a while. Gotta pay for the diapers.

50% to 75% is the easy part....it's only about 23K xp. 75% to 100% is another 72,544 xp. Have fun with that if it's so easy.

Tier 5 and below you can do pretty well w/out paying. Above that, it's almost impossible to get anywhere w/out a premium account, and that costs ~$8 / mo.

Check out the arty score from my last game -



the chat log was, shall we say, impressive. "***"'s all over the place!

Fortunately I managed to get a "draw" out of it.

Now that mwreplays is back up, time to show off. Someone gonna get derped, and that someone might be you!



This here Type thought he had the jump on me. Didn't turn out as he planned.





-----------------------------------------------

And this was basically my last T-44 match. Somehow I made it all the way through that tank with a 62% win rate without getting an Ace badge until a few days ago...
