The tier of those two vehicles has been reversed. Seems WGNA is shamefully bad at their own game.

Dysco has a lot of good points, although that arty suggestion...

kill/death over 1
more than my HP in damage (double is what I really like to see)
get defense points, but not at the expense of ^^ (i.e. don't hang so far back I can't engage just to get defense points)
don't die, or survive most of the match
Don't get frustrated. Your gameplay will suffer even more, you will get even more frustrated, and the whole game bit will lose its effect. This is the correct response:

I could write a lot more advice, but others have already done so.

I'm often available to platoon (Getsome or janeuner in game, Getsome (Jarod) on TS). I can coach in game, if you are open to suggestions. Just ask.

i've personally done pretty well this morning. A couple bad games, but all in all, I am generally doing 1.5 - 2x my hp in damage. Still only at 8/16 though. I have been mostly on in my AT2 and AT15A for crew experience.
I hate starting new crews

I can't explain why, you're on the clan list as I look at it. If you just accidentally closed the chat window, there ought to be a way for you to open it up again.

Full 8.7 client links are up. Apparently you can copy the patch files from there and place them in the update folder to just install the new update.

NA: http://dl.wargaming.net/wot/us/files...na_install.zip

EU: http://dl.wargaming.net/wot/eu/files...eu_install.zip

SEA: http://dl.wargaming.net/wot/sea/file...ea_install.zip


5.2 GB

I am pretty sure installing this or the updates before the update goes live will prevent you from playing, but you all probably already know that.

Thanks.

I'm feeling better, maybe just had a frustrating run, maybe was just running too many tanks at a time, but it feels better now. I've been doing better, at least closer to 50%+ as I've focused just on that lately. 2nd skills are at 87% now so I'm going to just focus on T29 stuff until I get those done.

I'm hardware literate, meaning if it's physically broke I can fix it, but software isn't my thing. If there are sliders I can do sliders, but digging through code isn't a thing for me.

But what killed it for me was the inability to zoom in toward the enemy. I lost my sniper scope and I live and breathe that. So it sort of killed it for me.

Beautiful mod pack, for sure, lovely lovely thing. Just not for me. *shrugs*

As for interesting games I had one about an hour ago now with ten. Yes, TEN tier 7 heavies. I was a Tier 4 M5 Stuart, the only T4 tank on the field...

And we lost.

It was groceries and we lost it.

I've been having a LOT of fun with this. Really enjoying it.
