I have trouble with condescending pricks at 2am when I'm lit.

Had a good run in my S-51 last night.








One of my better scores with that thing. Good team-mates helped, though.

Sure, show them my whole 7 damage round... Atleast I did a critical with that hit, and it was to the side of one of the KV-5's turrets.

I guess a KV-1 has one more crew member than some of the other tanks?

I actually think that it is not the number of different modules damaged, rather how often it was damamged. I.e. if you track a person 40 times, you will have a critical score of 40. At least it seemed that way every time i kept much larger tanks from attacking me by keeping them tracked at a corner....

it will only count a second damage to a module if they used a repair kit on it.

So if you wail on someone, and they use a gold repair kit to fix a bunch of stuff, and you wail on them again, that might explain the high numbers.

I know, it's dangerous, but I just had a thought...

A lot of times, we get on in the evenings, after work, after kids, and the 8pm Eastern reset brought a slew of crap players rushing to get their 2x for the day.

With the reset changed to 7am Eastern, I wonder if that will diffuse the regular evening hell, and give us a better blend of pub matches moving forward.


Something to hope for.

One can only hope.

For me it just ends the crush of trying to get in the x2 or x5 before the change since I, and so many others, only have a little time after work before it used to flip.

Now it means that before or after clan wars stuff I can get what I need to done.

Nope - One can't hope.

I just got done with loss after loss, not able to do anything because the teams wouldn't leave the spawn corners of ANY map out of 6 games. No help, and even had a t-50-2 hiding back with heavies on one map, trying to peek and shoot around corners with us. Another map had our T-59's holding back and getting nothing done (acting as if they're heavies).

Giving up for the night. No matter the 7 PM or 7 AM, the tards are home and playing during evenings.

My options are:
Gilbey's gin, vermouth, olives (or onions)
Beefeater gin, vermouth, olives/onions
Crown Royal Maple

+

a movie
