Replays

Is there any alternative to playing the game replays? Launch one, wait for the client to load, end of video, it closes and has to be launched again. Who thought that was a good idea?

Ordered some PC guts today. Thought I'd try out that new FX chip (I like me some Underdog), Asus board as usual. Finally upgrading to DDR3. Sick of seeing Geek's huge resolution pics and not being able to enable all the bling!

WoT is going to be on the New XBox correct? XBox and PS both getting AMD chips may force Dev's to write game code that works for Team Red.

My clan button is missing also. Still got the sticker so it must be a system thing.

Hondo: thanks for telling me about the "Tank Overhaulin'" show available on Netflix.

With netflix streaming I just watched the episode on the Elephant (Ferdinand).

Next up - the M24 Chaffee

Remember Team Red.. when your game crashes it was your catalyst drivers that caused it.


With my system my center screen is 2560x1600 (hence the size of the photos). Here is a full size image to give you an idea of how many extra pixels that is (assuming you are running 1900x1080 or so..):

If you are going up to 2560 - I highly recommend the Dell 3011 panel. I absolutely love mine and would buy it again in a heart beat.

re: Console
I'm worried about the game going to xbox. It is going to bring a huge influx of crappy players that is going to make MM more frustrating than ever. I can't believe how many Tier 10 tanks I'm seeing with low 40% (and below) win ratios

Fingers crossed they don't dummy it down even more for the console crowd.

yeah it was definly the compressed files that messed me up. reinstalled the game and mod pack and all is good. Takes a little getting used to but i like it! Especially with the hit skins, and my FAVORITE THING(S) - the effective armor calculator, and the enemy reload time thingie.

The consoles are going to be on a separate set of servers.....no cross pollination, unless the console crowd has PC's as well.

not surprising, the consoles always get separate servers because they'd get their asses whooped by PC players wielding mice and keyboards... and mods.

I went back and forth several times in deciding which way to go and settled on Intel + Nvidia. AMD has made some great stuff in the past, but just doesn't seem to be keeping up on the desktop gaming front anymore.

Two years later, I still have not seen a game that my $120 ATI card and $60 AMD processor can't run well.

Just ordered a 120GB SSD. When it arrives I will move the OS and games over to flash and leave the boring stuff (visual studio, handbrake, etc) on the platter drive. I'll post metrics

Sometimes, the best thing you can do is just spot.....especially when you're pretty well by yourself, faced with a platoon of charging Type 59's.....



It's not all doom and gloom, however.......I struck and ANVIL tonight......and it was good.
