  1. Geez, first time playing in ages... and I did far better than expected.  Lucky, or has the gameplay degraded yet more in pubs?

  2. If this is true... the world is about to change again. http://www.reuters.com/article/2014/10/15/us-lockheed-fusion-idUSKCN0I41EM20141015

      I feel like this will result in excitingly efficient new ways to kill people!

    3. Deusmortis


      This is Dawn of a New Era level stuff, if it pans out.

    4. Shifty_101st


      If Lockheed is successful.......this will change everything. Unfortunately we're still a VERY long ways away from that

  3. Fire for Effect= "Bare minimum to be considered a passable battle."

    1. Zynth


      Battle Buddy = "Intelligent enough to realize that you should not be shooting allies."

    2. onceuponaban



      Battle Buddy = "You're not playing a KV-4, a Maus, an E-100 or a TOG"

      Assuming ramming team damage count as reseting the Battle Buddy medal.

  4. When I'm in WoT, I tend towards Patient to a Fault. In MWO? I'm YOLO to a fault. What is it that makes me a lunatic there... sheesh.

    1. Roku


      It's hard to take that game seriously. I'm the same way.

  5. MWO is having Kill-a-Dev weekend. I guess that's one way to encourage a fanbase to play...

    1. Shade421


      WG should do that. They'd probably make it in game only though.

    2. How_Terrible
  6. Wow, Pirhana Games (the MWO guys) just announced a crowdsourced Sandbox competitor to Star Citizen. Is that probably cause to have them thrown into the loony bin?

      A match made in heaven, as both MWO and the SC scam are terrible.

    3. Aquavolt


      Piranha Games just got back all the publishing rights back from IGP. What's sad is although this allows PGI to focus on MWO, they have a shitty reputation and no credibility to be able to compete with Star Citizen or even EVE/any other space sim that's coming out.

    4. Enaris


      Aqua: From what I've seen, they have been doing a bit better with MWO lately,but not so much so to convince me that they're "cured." I guess they'll blame IGP for the problems and say "well, it's all us now, you'll see, shiny!"

  7. Well, my game of Commander: The Great War is over. As the Central Powers, I conquered Russia in 1917, then got Italy to surrender on turn 116 (of a possible 118), and France on Turn 117. Now, do I play as the Entante, or go back to dealing with pubs?

    1. UglyBigD


      play as Belgium and avoid getting conquered.

    2. Enaris


      Sadly, the game is as one alliance or another. So, the best I could do on that is play Entante and try to save Belgium, while using all the others.

  8. Been Playing Commander: Great War (WW1 game) the last couple of days. Just launched a major A-H offensive to take the pressure off of Germany. What is wrong with this picture?

    1. MaxL_1023


      That AH would be able to take pressure off anything?

    2. Enaris


      Pretty much. I'm still new to the game, but it's been odd. Serbia collapsed in Spring of 1915, and so A-H is actually doing well. Better than Germany, barely got out of Belgium in 1914...

    3. UglyBigD


      inb4 3 year stalemate.

  9. Wow, whatever I had in this game is just gone. All potato, all the time.

  10. I honestly think that Fail Platoons do more damage by causing ragers to TK, generally leading to a team implosion, then they ever do by the actual ineffectiveness of the low tier tank.

      They are a bonus for your team in some matches: they tend to run low tier tanks with a high tier tank, so you get more MM points to have a chance at having a real player in a higher tier tank.

      Oh, look, you have a tier 1 platooned with a T71 in a tier 10 game? For that tier 1 you may have 1-2 more tier 10s than the other team.

    4. UglyBigD


      speaking of failtoons, I just had a match where a tier 3 Renault td killed an IS-8.

  11. You know it's going to be one of those days when, first match out, arty starts complaining about MM.

  12. Breaking News: Entire Brazilian National Team asks to go into the Witness Protection Program. They figure in the United States no one would ever recognize them.

  13. Just purchased http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00JI4A6GM/ref=oh_aui_d_detailpage_o00_?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Am pondering Tannenberg/Masurian Lakes LFH.

    1. Enaris


      Not that it would arrive quickly. It's been years since I read anything on that battle, so I'd want to read all of the new book to refresh myself, and maybe dig around in my library a bit more.

    2. Laforet


      You might also be interested in Samsonov's role in the Russo-Japanese war - a lot of the same mistakes were made over and over again

    3. Enaris


      Yup, so many books, so little time.

  14. Why is the A1/2 B1/2 the most powerful spot on Prok? I mean, it must be, everyone goes there, right? What am I missing?

    1. cd169


      Nonsense. Everyone does not go there. Plenty of heavies camp the island at B9.

  15. 310Pen, 1150 Damage. It's not impossible that for 80% of players (including me, I'll admit), their 183 DPG will go up? (Instead of getting too many ~600 Damage nonpens)

      J100=No speed and no camo, in pubs you will rage nonestop.

    3. TouchFluffyTail


      Even without the HESH pen nerf, I was thinking of running a few AP shells in the 183 if I ever got it just because I'm cheap. Use them for cleanup and stuff.

    4. Medjed


      I got hit by an 183 AP shell the other day in T-44 and its mantlet ate it :DDDD I bet myself that guy raged so hard. Still dunno how the fuck 310 pen got stopped by T-44's mantlet :D Russian bias!

  16. Is it me, or is there more mindless HE spammage lately?

      HE master race

    4. Sploofy


      Ran into a T44 spamming he at an IS3 today, atleast he didnt steal my damagez

  17. I pulled this image to make a point on the M-I-T forum, and it's a fantastic example of doing damage at the wrong time in fights (Hopefully I've improved some since those days) http://i.imgur.com/eFnjHji.jpg

  18. Well, the WG forum moved the last Lessons post into "Tank Lore" after many complaints about it being in the wrong place. Not sure what that says, if the series is a failure (to teach by analogy), or if the main forum is a failure.

      your series is great. Pubbies are not. What more do you need to know? :D

    4. Moonrider


      Your series isn't stupid enough for the official forums. Most of the ones over there would rather die than think.

  19. You know, every time I post a new Lessons on the main site, I wonder why I bother. I guess I should either just quit, or only post them here.

  20. Bad week for Iberian football.

    1. Private_Miros


      This was expected though.

  21. Y'know, the best part of the 183mm HESH round is seeing how many crits you did at the end of the battle. It's pretty much always worth a giggle or two.

    1. shwedor


      Except then you realize the crits don't matter because you killed all the tanks in one hit.

    2. TheMarine0341


      going to start this grind on Friday, should be phun. Starting at the AT2

    3. shwedor


      It's....not fun. Tier 5 and below are fun and then it isn't fun again until tier 9. AT8 made me grind the Obj. 416 to its top gun and this was in retrospect a great change.

  22. Just finished the T25. 903 DPG. My T25/2 is at 1241. I just don't get it.

      T25/2 has such a slow turret though, and is so squishy. Do you play it like a T20?

    3. shwedor


      The turret on T25/2 seems to have the same troll capability as its bigger brother T28 proto.

    4. A_Hardy_Buck


      Loved the T25/2 , had serious fun with it

  23. What does it say about me that when I saw "Battle of Bautzen Weekend" my first thought was "why are they doing a Napoleonic Battle?" Of course, I've considered that battle (1813) for my Lessons In History series. Perhaps I should....

  24. There is a dreadful pedant in me that wants to correct people who are making mistakes against me. "Yo! IS-4, why are you popping HE at my T30? You have a shot at my body!" Thankfully, as much as I want to do that, I yet resist.

    1. CrazyScientist


      Yeah its one thing with everyone gold spamming, but that kinda of asshatery makes your head explode.
