That said.. I'm taking a half day off today. If anyone wants to club some seals

The work is taking its toll. I haven't been playing to the same level for about two weeks now, and my efficiency scores are noticeably lower.

Have fun, pal.

I never pay attention to survival.. perhaps I should?

How much does survival impact:
1) xp
3) efficiency rating?

There is a bonus percentage to xp for surviving a battle....don't know what it is off the top of my head.

Edit: It's a small, flat bonus to xp for surviving, not a percentage. No extra silver for surviving.

iwas 4/4 before work. Currently 0/2 in my ST1, but still ahead a little on coin. 4kills the first game, 0 the 2nd but about the same damage. only 5000 silver difference

the 700 and 400 xp are killing me though.

At least with the ST1, as long as you hit something, you are probably going to break even it seems.

Survival rate is nice but, to me, it's mostly from a bill paying standpoint

I finally updated my graphics card and WoT runs now.

But first, Sim City.

Awwww.... Who left the feckin gate open?

I downloaded WoT onto the new machine last night. I still have to add some software from my other machines, and hopefully will be playing with a few more frames per second. I'm going to take the old PC and set it up in the basement for the youngsters to use.


Hows that work for Team Speak if my oldest and I want to run it at the same time? Does he need different login credentials? He's KDXwrestler on WoT. He's in the clan already.

so what was the problem with loading Windoze?

I'd love to update my antique gaming computer and use that rather than the laptop, but I hate being tethered to the computer room. Though it is marginally closer to the refrigerator.

I had overlooked the crew levels, though I don't remember this many misses when I began playing the Sturmpanzer.

Had a random game yesterday where we were up 12 - 5 and still lost because the last three on their side capped and we had no one to stop them.

TS is only looking at the password. The UID isn't set by me. He can put whatever he wants in there.

strategy help

on west field, when the team has to attack the hill across the valley.......

on the defending team what do you do?

Can't sit on the hill or you get whacked by arty or TD's across the way if they have decent spotters. Can't go down below if the rest of the team sits on the hill. I just got fucked hard on that map yet again. I'd rather be attacking.

a T54 and a whatever came up the west, where we had exactly 1 IS8 deployed. The opfor lit me up and I got hammered by arty and td's. The team was stupid and it was a sure loss from the start, but are you sposed to just run down the valley?
