  1. And there's some data, refuting your claim (in Italian, which I don't speak, so some finer points might have escaped me due to use of Google Translate): "From an average of 45 deaths per week in the past ten years, there has been a surge to 313 per week, almost seven times as much in the seven days from 15 to 21 March. From March 1 to 21, however, the ratio is four times the average for the past ten years." https://www.ecodibergamo.it/stories/bergamo-citta/a-bergamo-decessi-4-volte-oltre-la-medialeco-lancia-unindagine-nei-comuni_1346651_11/
  2. If you are claiming that everyone who has died from COVID-19 was so sick they would have died within days anyway, you will need to provide a damn good source to support that assertion.
  3. Any search on "Italy demographics" will give you that. 62 million population, 10.5 deaths per 1000 people per year (2018), so 1790 deaths on an average day. There were 919 deaths yesterday, or 50% increase in mortality. That seems significant enough to me. Yes, most of those people were elderly and sick, and probably significant part of them would have died over the next decade or so, but most likely very few of them would have died right now.
  4. Yep, same on EU. I have already seen a couple of bot-like players with 0 battles on their accounts. I assume they were re-rolls, although I have no idea why someone would create a new account for this event.
  5. It was nice for the first few days. But by now, at least on EU server, it seems that all 46% bots have finally discovered this mode and now it is not uncommon to have 3 players camp in the back or drive to the other side of the map. Heck, I have just seen a med push Lakeville valley...
  6. So, and now I have the last Chimera mission remaining, Alliance 15: deal 6500 damage. Any suggestions on the best tank and tactics for this mission? For me it seems unproportionally more difficult compared to others - I haven't ever managed to do 6,5k in my 30k battles so far (although I did manage 6k+ on a few occasions), while the other three final missions for Chimera did not require any extraordinary achievement. I have E5, E4, Patton, T57 Heavy and S Conq available. I am inclined to focus on either Patton or T57 for this, although I completely suck at T57 so far. Does it make sense to focus on Polish tree and get 60TP instead?
  7. After resisting for so long I have finally succumbed to the dark side and decided to go for this branch. Now according to what I have read online, those vehicles are supposed to have two driving modes, which are toggled by pressing "X", but for me it seems that nothing has changed. Was this scrapped together with boost mechanics?
  8. Nope, vanilla client. In fact I think that the very same day, a couple of battles before I spotted this issue, I had another Grand Battle and the missions were showing correctly, but I wasn't completely sure if my memory wasn't tricking, as I hadn't had a GB since and couldn't check this.
  9. Thx for confirmation. So it was a very weird bug in my case, it seems.
  10. Is it still possible to do personal missions in Grand Battles? I am absolutely sure it was possible in the past and I have completed at least a few of them this way, but today I got a Grand Battle in my E100, and after pressing the N key I got "No missions available for this vehicle". Has anybody else noticed that? Is it some bug, or did WG decided to disable missions fro Grand Battles? I was unable to find any announcement regarding this.
  11. Swamp was a great map indeed. I did like Sacred Valley and some of the many reincarnations of Severogorsk were OK as well. Now Pearl River was probably my most hated map back then. But of course, that was a long time before abominations like Paris.
  12. -8 degrees for IS-3-II and ST-II makes them equal to E5 in terms of gun depression.
  13. I have tried this tactics and was disgusted how little progress in the ranks I have received. Killing the turret entirely alone I have moved maybe one third of the rank (Sergeant to Lieutenant). It seems that focusing on enemy tanks and simply ignoring the objectives makes much more sense.
  14. Yes, that would explain everything. Of course, in my opinion it doesn't seem intuitive to get a "critical hit" notification if you did not cause sufficient damage to actually damage or destroy a module, but that only shows how bad I am at understanding WG's game design decisions.
  15. I know that and so I am not surprised that I did not complete the mission. What I find surprising is that in the battle results screen no critical damage is shown at all. E.g. in the picture below, I hit the IS-7 twice, both time receiving "critical hit" notifications, but there is no critical damage marked in the battle results - not tracks, not vision device - nothing. This is what I find surprising. Is it a bug? Is critical hit not registered if the player uses a repair kit to repair a module (doesn't seem so, but who knows with WG)? Something else?
