I had such a GOOD time in the match. A little bummed that we couldnt pull of another round. Lost 4 in a row with the Bison afterwords then ran the entire German arty line to GWpanther with the best scores ive had since the nerf, go figure. Hit 11, killed 4, with over 6000 damage [ all 8,9, and 10s] with the GWP.

Again, thanks to all the guys, lets do it again soon

12 hour day at work... come home to an empty ADV TS server.

But my box-o-parts was at my door step! Handlebars, hand-guards, grips and a super-moto front fender

Time to play tomorrow.

Nice!

My box of parts still hasn't shipped. But I did find a clutch basket on eBay that looks like it will fit the bill for a reasonable price.

March Events Preview

Today, 02:59 General News Comments

Tankers!
Ah, March. The time of year when the first glimpses of spring begin to appear--at least here on the west coast. We know that your day to day activities can be dictated by the weather out in the real world, but in ours, the battles go on! Rain, sleet, or snow. To keep everyone excited for the month we've compiled the list of scheduled events for March.
If lists aren't your thing, or maybe you're just in a visual sort of mood today, you can find much of the same information at the events calendar.
Tank of the Month

Every month we'll pick one tank to zero-in on, give a bit of a history lesson, a few playing tips, and a hefty boost to the credit income for the whole month! This month's bonus goes to:
VII T71
Weekend Events

We know that the weekend tends to be the time when our players can really dedicate themselves to wanton destruction on our battlefields. With that in mind, we prepare a set of various discounts and bonuses every week to help our tankers make the most of their gaming time.
  • Star Spangled Weekend - March 1 - 4
  • Medium Mayhem Weekend - March 8 - 11
  • Saint Patrick's Day Weekend - March 15 - 18
  • Operation Varsity Weekend - March 22 - 25
Tech Tree Focus

There are six nations represented in World of Tanks, with many branches, and consequently, many vehicles to buy. We know that your hard-won credits only go so far, so we put together a discount highlighting a different nation and branch just about every week.
  • Germany - March 4 - 8
  • France - March 11 - 15
  • China - March 18 - 22
  • USSR - March 25 - 29
Operations

Those coveted medals and awards are enticing all on their own, but we like to sweeten the pot each week with a new bonus attached to earning a particularly presitigious achievement.
  • Confederate - March 4 - 8
  • Steel Wall - March 11 - 15
  • Defender - March 18 - 22
  • Defender - March 25 - 29
Other Happenings

Even though we've got nearly every day of the month covered, we have several other events set to transpire this month.
  • Creative Contest (get ready to be a poet) - March 5 - 17
  • Who Shot the Sheriff - March 29 - April 1
  • Crash of the Titans MVP - March 19 - 24
  • Wargaming Tank Company - March 1, 8, 15, 22 & 29

Oh, I sure tried to play this morning, but guys running around with sub 500, some sub-400, efficiencies in big tanks eventually forced me to go outside on a miserable day (overcast, cold 64 degrees, with a win blowing )... so I wasn't really enthused to be working. But newer, higher handlebars (a few have assured me that these are the ticket for a DR650 - some guys just raise existing ones with risers, and some use ATV bars like I just did). I'm really not so sure that everything I spent hours and $120 on wasn't a waste, so we'll see.

The only good thing for south Florida that I should have bought two years ago were aluminum hand-guards to protect me from the errant ghetto people who love to dress darkly, and to cross streets at night where I'd never see them. I've come within just a few inches of jay-walkers a few times already, and some hand-protection would be nice even if I will end up on my ass after the initial hit.

Around here, even the pirates are out in that kind of weather.

Seriously, I'm planning to ride tomorrow, and it's currently snowing outside.

Yeah, perfect riding weather, but I like it sunny and warm when I have to take the bike down to pieces. I had the fuel tank, seat, front cowling, bars, all controls and throttle cables off to install new bars & re-route the fuel lines. I'm just not a fan of fumbling for little bolts and such when my hands are cold. I bet it's really high 50's where I'm at.
