  1. October time, hate myself time.

      cba to play even remotely close to the amount of games needed to mark it, even less try and manipulate the values


      i have access to 3 accounts on EU of the 20-ish who do so if i really i wanted to i could just bot my ass off on two of them for a week or so :doge: but whats the point

    3. Haswell


      Can't you first tank your stats, then hold yourself back and play only progressively better each time? Going from 400 DPG to 800 is a 100% increase. :doge:


    4. Kolni


      yeah but i have a 3k dpg isu, fuck whoever thinks ima ruin that :kjugh: 

  2. Nothing says trolling as much as spewing Russian propaganda while driving an ISU-130, all the while being useless in every match because you literally can't pen anything with more than 200mm armor :doge:

      yeah I think thats bullshit as well. Official forum retards disagree of course.

      I hope to god they dont sell it on NA, however even selling it on ASIA has ruined a lot of its rarity and collectors value. :-/

    3. Haswell


      You don't understand. I'm not thinking it's bullshit because it's supposed to be something super special, I'm saying it's bullshit because this is blatant money-gouging on WG's part by trying to sell something completely garbage to the clueless masses, banking on the "OMG SUPER RARE" hype to fleece their customers while conveniently leaving out the fact that they will have a miserable time in it.

      WG will inevitably buff the tank to appease the soon-to-be remorseful buyers, but this doesn't excuse WG's practice of selling garbage first, making it better later for more hype, then reselling it, etc...

      Also remember, the tank is only worth 5 gold so you can only sell it for 1000 credits. :serb:

    4. hall0


      They will only buff it, if it will be sold on the RU server. 

      Like WG gives a damn about the opinion of some Asia scrubs.

  4. Graduating with a psyc degree, a philosophy degree, and an EMR certification. What are my chances of not sleeping on the streets?


    1. Hellsfog


      100% if like everyone else with those degrees you go to law school.

    2. simba90


      I would have thought that EMR would have gotten you work?

    3. hazzgar


      Psychology should give you work but you need additional courses. Preferably in behavioral therapy.


      Philosophy grads actually get hired by big corporations but you can always go into neurocognitivism side of psychology, get a pHd and then your job prospects are also good. 

      EMR should get you a yurb too

  5. Never forget, the definition of skycancer.


  6. MFW if I'm not graduating I'd have a chance to study weeb food culture :cri:

      The thought of meeting a fellow wotlabber IRL scares the living shit out of me. :kappa:

    3. Fulcrous


      :kappa: The thought that you still can. There's quite a few well-known tankers that live near Vancouver.

      i.e. Jackquerudo, eural, etc

    4. Haswell


      Jackie did his masters at UBC too I think.

  7. RIP Stephen Hawking :cri:

      Nooooop waaaaayyyy???

      Thats so sad

    3. sohojacques


      Never forget watching a doco on his younger years. His first wife was asked why she married him knowing his condition. She said that thanks to the Cold War she thought everyone was going to be dead in a handful of years anyway, so why not.

      RIP indeed. Whose going to stop the robots now!?

  8. Change is scary, I need a hug :cri:

  12. Received a promo email from AW, saw new maps.


    Is it just me or does it look exactly like Pearl River? :serb:

    2. leggasiini


      The one pic really does look like the Pearl river.

      I miss that map, it wasnt perfect but way better than 50% of maps in the game. I hope they return that and Hidden Village with reworks when they rework maps to HD.

    3. Kolni


      Pearl River had serious map balance issues where you couldn't rotate at all as if you committed somewhere bad you couldn't run out, and if you got out in time there was nowhere to go to be viable in because you couldn't control anything else. 

      That said both the middle and north design were pretty well made, plenty of terrain for corridors to abuse and several lanes to switch to in case you picked a loser. Only real problem was that you couldn't get out of anywhere so a lot of people had issues with it and so it got removed


      (even though I really liked it, super fun in T6 SH with cheekibreeki traps :serb: )

    4. Raj


      My best memory of Pear River was being in CHAI as one of two non Chinese speakers and just damage farming instead. I forget who we fought, but I think we brought a lot of Foch's.

  13. Cloudflare pls, making me double post threads :cri:

      Somehow my 1TB Toshiba drive has survived 4 years of usage so far, no idea how.

    3. Assassin7


      I mean, I have an old 750GB Seagate HDD from 2009 thats still going strong. currently powering my old gaming rig, now in use by my little brother. 

    4. HowitzerBlitzer


      This drive cost me $55 CAD in 2014, and Toshiba HDD reviews from that time aren't too good.

      Even if it does fail, I have about 30 Samsung 80GB drive behind me, and several 250GB drives.

  14. Finding people I know on planes is like catching them watching porn.

    1. GloriousPotatoes


      ...or finding people you know in porn. It's good blackmail.

    2. orzel286


      Damn, I've never managed to find anyone I know in porn vids I watched. Maybe I should stop watching hentai? :feelsbad:

    3. GloriousPotatoes


      You could always blackmail them into giving you the footage, so that you're in possession of more blackmail.

      Or even blackmail them into doing it in the first place.

  15. Why am I flying planes and why did I bump into tedster and deus

      Just put a pineapple in a microwave and put the mush you get out of it on your pizza.

    3. Medjed


      Well you have needs of a cow.

    4. cavman276


      what the fuck kind of pizza is that

  17. @PityFool How do you prep gator meat without making it dry and taste like chicken again?

    2. Haswell


      Which one though?


    3. Folterknecht


      I 'd go with least 1/2 a day, better a full day, in dark beer with a high malt content. For drinking a prefer Pils with a high hops, not a fan of dark beer there, but hops has a bitter taste, which I don't think you are after with flesh that is rumored to resemble chicken when it comes to taste.


      Though I'm no cook by any means.

    4. PityFool


      Hmmm, I've eaten it but never cooked it. Mine was done like a steak in a garlic butter sauce.

      Don't think they have burn in periods, but the 2016 Q1 report did include a breakdown of annual stats accumulated over 3 years since 2013. Data looks a bit polluted since they didn't list unfailed drives added/replaced, but it's something. https://www.backblaze.com/blog/hard-drive-reliability-stats-q1-2016/

      Limited sample size, etc.

    3. Fulcrous


      Also have to factor in popularity due to price and therefore increased reports of failures. Toshiba is confirmed trash though.

      EDIT: Nevermind.

      Tosdjhibaga is up there with WD and Hitaschi

      Making a post about that right now

  19. The more I think the more I'm convinced we are all just zoo animals.


    1. Fulcrous


      We need David Attenboroug to narrate us...


    2. sohojacques


      The vast bulk of us do live in artificial environments not of our own making, so....

    3. Mureke



      The zoo animal in a cage exhibits all these abnormalities that we know so well from our human companions. Clearly, then, the city is not a concrete jungle, it is a human zoo.


  20. Anyone watched Dunkirk? Worth shelling out monies to watch?

    2. avandelay


      It was filmed on film. Very hipsterish I guess. You need to watch it on the biggest screen possible. I saw it on a 70mm screen. The visuals are stunning and the sound is incredible. It should win any award possible in the visual/sound categories. Totally worth the $$$ spent to see it in the theater.

    3. Medjed


      Why the fuck do you even ask that for a Christopher Nolan's movie. Everything he made is just out of this world when it comes to filmography. Best movie director, ever.
