  1. ...also be sure to make a new post asking about why the win8 numbers aren't updating for newtankXYZ and tag one of the mathematics contributors. That's when all kinds of fun can be had.
  2. Hi, I'm Kreigermann, I'm probably referred to by WG as a whale, I haven't been clean in 3 years.

    But seriously.. I don't mind spending money, still, it is good to keep in perspective what the companies are doing to try to milk us.

     

  3. Well then, it looks like I'm only one mission and some time away from a 260.... huh. TD12-4..... gotten so close a bunch of times. Still, kinda feels cheap though.. I've come extremely close to finishing HT15 and MT15 several times(less than 200- damage/blocked etc on either one)and now I'll just get to wave a magic wand and finish them. At least I'll get to console myself with the chickiecrews I don't know where to put yet.
  4. Finally finished unlocking the RhmPzwhateverthehell. T10 German LT.

    After accidentally blowing most of the XP built up on the RU a while ago I had to play through this for quite a while.

    RU went from one of my go-to fun LTs in the previous patch along with the T71, Bulldog and T49 it is now so completely awkward.

      T49 is pure bossmode at 9!

      Totally agreed. I tried the 90mm for a handful of games and definitely got more consistent results with it but it just doesn't have the magic of the derp.

      The purely magical brown-note panic moment in pubbies when you pop up to blast them and they start angling to you instead of the 3 HTs they were brawling just a second ago. - fun to do it while on reload too if you think they're not aware... I've had some suicide angle against me and get killed by your friendlies. XD

      Just a shame about the RU is all.. I'll probably just garage it until they hopefully fix it.

  5. Sigh... OK.. You've convinced me to give it a try... I'll blame you if it sucks donkeys.
  6. Sigh, I got up through the tier 7 on the 183 tree... and it just killed me inside. I think I'll skip the tier8 and try the tortoise. :/
  7. Ugh, you know what, I read 105 and my work-addled brain thought 152, sorry 'bout that. Reading comprehension fail after 11h at work
  8. So.... @dualmaster333, @CraBeatOff... just saw this from 9.20.1 notes: "Insufficient firepower made it hard for the XM551 Sheridan to make an impact on maps where spotting is of little value. The top tier American gets a bigger alpha for the 105-mm Lightweight Gun with no changes to the reload speed. ... " Thought this might interest you. XD
  9. @monjardin, that's how I read it. It would be really nice to get all those back orders from stug/HTC/55a and then be completely done with these missions(I've been stuck on HT15, MT15 and half 75% done with TDs for 260) but while WG is all about dumbing down mission reqs it is in their MO to make you plug through as much of it as possible. As it is now, you have to finish 4x of X-15s to get enough tokens to ignore an entire line. It just makes more sense (not that WG makes sense often with game design) they are all about "getting people to play" right now people just skip one of the lines and go for honors on the others. This way it entices people to play through most of the mission lines, and play roulette, first 4 mission sets done the last is free, and you still get your crew.
  10. Maybe I missed something, but are people thinking the orders are cumulative between sets? It would be closer to what we have now if you get one order per X-15 with honors within the mission set. Like how the extra tokens work now only with a different name/theme.
  11. Well, at least your computer didn't catch fire like mine did. :/ I had a vaguely similar issue a long time ago, during the clean one of the case buttons got stuck leads were shorted so it would do this weird boot/shut off thing. If it has a power/reset button on the board itself maybe try removing the case wires and booting up off of that.
  12. I read somewhere that the VKB was rebalanced again, can someone please tell me which patch notes to look for or summarize for me? I finally got around to getting this thing. Thanks.
  13. Derp 49 is my go-to-for-fun tank ever since I got it. It was the first line I went up when I started the game. Tried the 90mm for a handful of games after it came out, and it is just not as fun. The pacing is so much fun, every ambush is exciting roulette. mmmmmMMMMmm that feelgood moment when you HE pen a batchat, set on fire and they burn to death because of food>AFE.
  14. Wow... it took me this long to get a chat ban. OK then.

      I am convinced WG's system is broken 

      *gets tinfoil hat*

      The only 'insulting' thing I've ever said was that I hoped anyone anyone who went beach on overlord would drown slowly and painfully as the tides come uo early. At the start of every overlord game.

      And I get banned forever, without any warning, anywhere.

      Meanwhile there's people throwing direct insults at peoples mothers with actual intent to cause harm, and they roam free, ready to plunge on another with all their mean-spirited teeth.
      I even bet your chat ban isn't permanent, whatever you said.

      I even pay WG loads emoney and yet...

      Well, I'm not saying I didn't deserve it. I'm sure I did.

      Funny thing is I'm an even tempered person IRL, something about this game makes me petulant and I lose my shit.

      @GloriousPotatoes it was a 24h ban first strike. I never threaten directly, 'cause that makes no sense, you know,.... anonymous internet game, though I've received my fair share of direct threats to myself, family and pets.  Direct threats are really laughable and pointless. 

      Pubbie: "I need to find you you and beat your face in" (truequote)  me: "good luck with that, on both counts, I highly doubt you'd be capable of either" he went on to graphically describe the kind of abuses he would subject me to. (I thought it was funny).  So, I suggested that he either lay off the 'roids or get castrated to help him manage his anger.

      On overlord I refer to the beach goers as the medical waste that washes up on beaches.

      I try to structure my insults creatively though, and encourage pubbies that insult me to do the same. Might be the first time they are motivated to actually use their brain in the game.

      I suspect it was someone in arty I PMd after the game to ill-wish his whole family. They had spent the whole fucking game hitting or splashing me over higher tier out in the open teammates, for... you know... reasons.  Well, I guessed by the clan tag that they were Chinese.. so I may have structured the ill-wish in a culturally appropriate way to have impact.

      Exactly, someone who gets me!

      Indirect insults are the best insults.
      Especially so when you're directing it at your team, which has an average of about 10 condom accidents. 

      I miss being able to sarcastically answer back PM's post game, people calling me either gud or yet another reason why NASA wants to leave earth. That I miss the most, alongside giving the game a slightly more happy attitude, by shouting random stuff into All-chat, when that was a thing.

      At least I can still curse WG publically through platoon/skirmish invites, they haven't quite figured out that's a thing...
