    Team voting for turning bots blue

    I had network issues recently, a bad vpn router to be specific. It kept dropping connection. It did it during a game and my M 103 was trying to climb a wall. I'm sure everybody thought I was a bot. I got killed before I could get control of the tank after reconnecting.

    Anyone finding Platoon matchmaking a nightmare?

    Seem to always get low tiered when I platoon with a group over several games.

    KV-3 or KV-4 to grind a IS-7 crew?

    I thought the purpose of this forum was to have a single thread for each tank. My bad. I wasn't here 2 1/2 years ago to make an observation or comment.

    KV-3 or KV-4 to grind a IS-7 crew?

    I brought the crew in my KV-3 up the ranks through the KV-1, T-150, then KV-3. I like the KV-3 better than the other 2. With the top gun it does some good damage. It's tough as nails, also. Actually got my Ace Tanker in it tonight. I have a KV-4 and it is total crap until you get the top gun. Even then, it doesn't do as much damage as the KV-3 does.

    (SPOILERS) The Last Jedi discussion

    I have tears in my eyes from laughing so hard. I saw the movie the day after it came out. Agree totally. It's sad that there is no original screen writing any more, since the original movies.

    Soo... who got a Type 59 this Xmas? :)

    I had it before, didn't like it.

    Soo... who got a Type 59 this Xmas? :)

    I bought the 75 box special. Over 42K in gold Type 59 Lorraine - I sold it 2 tier 4 premiums - sold them both about 3.5 million in silver I'm going to do it again before it goes away. I won't have to buy anything for a year. Used my tier 8 discount to buy the M 46 Patton. Got an O-I experimental for free and got ace tanker on the second game. That's never happened before.
  8. oh yeah. I got mine today. Just kidding. I did get one; but, I'm not that big of an a-hole.
  9. Read the section on what not to do and find the thread on the E25 guy.
  10. Read the how to suck less thread and the how to forums. Lots of good information and tips. Don't get discouraged in low tiers. I'm not great; but, I'm better than I was for joining this forum.
  11. Mine went through down the toilet this past week, not that it mattered any.

    Why so many TDs now?

    TDs generally do higher damage, plus the campaigns got buffed a bit. I'm sure everyone is trying to grind out that Stug IV.

    Whats new? so many new tanks...

    +1 for arty comment and Tier 8. Need moar Tier 9 tanks. Real close to getting M103 and Patton. Ways to go on my German TD. KV4 is in grind mode. Need to unlock the big gun. T-54 mod 1 still sucks but not quite as much. Tier 8 is brutal if you have a T-32 or other heavy that has a non-derping gun.
  14. It's getting better for me, also. Slowly but surely. It's hard to reverse thousands and thousands of games played with bad habits; but, I'm getting there also. Had over 50% win rate over the past month. That's a great improvement. Not unicum purple, yet; but, better than a tomato.
  15. I thought that the Mentor skill provided additional crew skills to all crew, but the commander. I moved my Tiger II crew, which is on its 5th skill/perk to the E 100 on Saturday. Today, I found myself putting together a new Tiger II crew, so I gave the commander Mentor, 2 crew members repairs and the radio operator situational awareness to restart. Low and behold, I played my first game with the new crew, got a 2nd class badge with 1738 damage, 2031 spotting assist and 240 blocked damage. The commander now is 25% trained on Mentor and the other crew members got 17%. The radio operator was already 31% on Situational Awareness, as he was left over from a sold tank. I don't know if you can see the picture I'm trying to attach or not.
  16. That's probably a good idea.
  17. I wish I could give this post 10 likes. The current 3 tier match making is killing the game. Tier 8 tanks are almost impossible to play unless you just love getting hammered.
  18. I played four ranked battles last night. Got my ass kicked. Totally different game from pub games. Hard game to succeed in with an E100, which is my only tier 10 tank. I will keep trying as I like the opportunity of playing against better players and trying to become better myself.
  19. I'm trying it for the first time tonight, there are only 42 players in the queue and the number is dropping.
  20. It's a great tank. Plays good in pubs and strongholds

    Found my way here...

    It's a pretty good place. People will help you out. There are tons of really good articles, also.

    Stepping Away

    Best of luck to you and God speed. Hope things will work out.
  23. I know. I love the 10 bonds I get when I win a tier X game.
  24. I have tanks from Tier 1 through Tier IX. I only have the T75 in tier IX, though. I would greatly appreciate the help. I want to focus on staying alive, reaping more damage and becoming a better overall player. My favorite tanks are E75, which I am not good at T20 - got my first mark of excellance Tiger II - Also got my first mark of excellance hetzer - my seal clubber I like playing German and American Mediums and Heavies I suck at the T67 and I would like to get much, much better at that tank.

    T28 "Appreciation" Thread

    I thought this was the T-28 prototype thread. My bad.
