    Or platooning. I mean, what kind of person does that?

    Rating the Premium Tanks (Tiers 5 through 8)

    I like the Valentine II. Full camo crew, full APCR, always top tier. You're kind of at the mercy of your team as far as wins go, but it's a decent sneaky bastard kind of tank for prowling around in low tier battles (Soviet light tank trainers being what they are). I still have the regular Valentine in the garage - with somehow a higher win rate - so maybe I'm just used to that sort of plodding playstyle.
  3. It doesn't keep them off your team, it just mutes their chatter. (WG would make a mint if they sold slots for "not on my team" list.)

    China - meds or lights?

    One advantage of the lights is that the WZ-132 leads to both trees, so it is possible to skip the next three mediums in line. (You just need to come up with another crew for the tier 9 grinds.)
  5. Not so much a shaming, but a reminder that someone can always be having a worse game than you are. My Tiger P drove on by with a big dent in the front and a long scratch down the side, and I'm sure my kill shot just rubbed salt into the wound.

    Ikv 90 Typ B, T7 TD

    Having my doubts on this one too. The auto-overmatch is becoming annoying. My teammates also seem to think I make great hard cover, and half of my battle deaths are from having my cover blown and not being able to back up.

    WG has gone soccer code crazy

    It's the English who shortened Association Football to soccer (by way of "Assoccer"). It was called Soccer eighteen years before it was called Football. When I was growing up, I remember seeing Futbol used more often than the others. No confusion there.

    Got any HAX for Soccer Mode?

    That Goal Kick package is starting to look interesting. Time and gold alone works out to 300g/$1, plus the boosts and bonus battles, so getting the cards and avoiding RNG is effectively a freebie. Every card earned from missions is a 30K duplicate, so that's an extra 900K silver if you decide to grind cards anyway (and you get start training Buffon now instead of later) .
  9. I've never been able to find a picture of it with the "turret" turned. It doesn't sound like they spent much time with it in this configuration before moving on to Stage II.

  11. On the 4-track tanks, those "fins" that mounted the tracks doubled as the fuel tanks. Side shots that make it under the treads should regularly set these on fire. (Should.) The low traverse rate and poor performance on mushy ground were some of the reasons for canceling the project, so it's amusing to see that's been fixed.
  12. I was able to do the EVGA step-up to the 1080Ti, but they pass out Founders Edition cards for the trades. If you want an 1180/2080 with an EVGA cooling system, you may have to buy it direct.

    Tortellini or Ravioli?

    Tortellini. Many raviolis have questionable filling and come apart when cooked. Cheese tortellini allows the use of meatballs, though.

    Renault G1 or the G1R and oh my goddess, what have they done...

    Lack of candidates is a weak excuse when you only need to fill three holes and you're willing to use foreign tank hulls. Put the Rev at tier 8 and the Egyptian AMX/M4 hybrid at tier 6, add tier 7 captured Panther, and presto, a connected line. The G1R with the ARL 42 turret could also have filled in somewhere.

    I use the top 122 most of the time. It's a change in playstyle, as the DPM tempts you to stay on target rather than backing off to reload, and you can take a lot more crap shots. The guns are uncommon since they're not needed for the ISU, so you do get the occasional player who rolls out into the open for you because they think you are still reloading. (I do keep the derp gun in the depot for the occasional giggles, though.)
