    timbuctu got a reaction from 25S in [FLASH] Flash Point recruiting. (no clan wars.... yet)   
    Fellow tankers,
     
    The mission of Flash Point is to provide and continually develop a fun and friendly gaming atmosphere for its members
    -We strongly encourage respectful behavior from all members.
    -We use Team-Speak for comms.
    -We run 7/42 & Tournaments
    Last 60 days: WN8 Rate 1000 or higher
    Stats are important to us, but not as much as we're looking for people who “fit” (easy to get along with and know what they’re doing)
    You will need a tier 8 (non-premium) and a Tier 1, both are required to participate in the 7/42 and daily platooning.
    Ok, now about the “stats”. These will be looked at on a player by player basis.
    We want to see a wide tier spread, and an upward trend in XP & Damage.
    Friend or Guest of clan members will be vetted. (Regardless of stats)
    We're not a clam wars clan yet, but perhaps someday.
    ______________________________________________________________
     
     
    Newly formed, we are very active in 7/42 and are just getting our feet wet in the tournament scene.  A laid back clan, looking to constantly improve.  Our stats are important, but working together to get better results for everyone is the way we want to get there.  If you are looking to play competitively but aren't ready for the clan wars grind yet, apply here:

    Flash Point fielded two teams in the War of the Nations tournament.  It was our first tournament, and we participated in the Tier 5 division.  Team two gave a good accounting of themselves, finishing with a .500 record but unable to advance, team one finished 7-1-1, landing in second place in their bracket and moving on to day two.
     
    Not bad for a new clan, in their first ever tournament.
     
    We had a ton of fun, and will be entering more tournaments in the future.  This, along with regular participation in 7/42 battles and great comraderie make Flash Point a great place for mid-level skill players interested in improving their game.  If this is you, please apply at the link above.
     
    thank you,

    timbuctu got a reaction from Fenxis in Lets talk about slumps   
    Slumped for about a week.  realized my play had gotten really sloppy.  Figured out what I was doing wrong, had a great day, then the very next day was terrible again.  Went back over the those games for the bad day and realized the good day convinced me I was back on track and then I immediately fell back into the stuff that put me in a slump.
     
    I had just decided I was good enough to overcome stupidity.  I'm not.
     
    Just take a step back, evaluate your gameplay and then avoid doing stupid stuff......
     
    I've fixed two slumps that way.

    timbuctu got a reaction from Sylvansight in Map Poll: Pubby Strats that Piss You Off So Much You Cringe When You Get the Map   
    The last few games on Sacred Valley, I have taken my fast moving tank (T49, T21, Luchs...etc....) from south spawn and run up to the steep hill in front of the Temple area just a bit down from the wall.  I can lite most of the enemy there, and eventually the other team gets irritated and feels the need to come and stop me. They are then stuck, and our base campers have something to shoot at.
     
    Eh, it's just something I have been playing around with, don't know if it's smart, and it's worked out many times.
     
    Please tell me if I'm an idiot.

    See? 
     
    Ask for opinions, and then spend two pages telling every single purple player that they have no idea what they are talking about, because your opinion is correct.
     
    Why ask?

    timbuctu got a reaction from OOPMan in Tank balance in Tiers 6 and below   
    So, tier 5 that can one shot a tier 4 is bad, tier 6 that can one shot a tier 5 is okeedokee.
     
    Seems like there are a lot of tanks that are mostly useless until they get the top gun.
     
    I like you Florb, but it seems like you post observations and opinions to invite argument, but once the opinions start flowing in, yours is the only one that matters.  If you've already made up your mind that you are right, why ask for opinions?  Or was this post just a statement that we all need to fess up was the only correct one and we all need to jump on board because it came from you?

    timbuctu got a reaction from Buccaneer in Simply the greatest event yet......   
    The 300,000 credit for 30 kills has been by far the best event in my WOT career.  I have missed it only once this month so far.  Other than a vertical stabilizer and two of the French tanks on sale this last weekend, I have made it a point not to spend any credits.
     
    I started at about 1.3 million.  As of the 25th, I crossed over 15 million. Taking into consideration the three purchases i did make, when I finish on the 31st, I will have accumulated close to 20 million credits when the 300,000 and credits earned are all added together.
     
    What a great event..... I may go on a spending spree next Sunday.

    timbuctu reacted to Ruwed in How to install XVM 4.0?   
    http://forum.worldoftanks.eu/index.php?/topic/196435-xvm-updater-22-one-click-installupdate/
     
    There you go bud.  Save yourself a headache and just use that, works pretty good.
     
    I haven't gotten it to show win% chance for battles yet, but I just clicked the check mark and have not actually looked at the settings file to see if it did anything.  But the two digit win6 is displayed and at least gives you the basics with no heartache.
     
    From there you can use a standard xvm editor and get it tweaked

    This is how I install it, works perfectly. Then use the XVM editor or someones XVMconfig file.

    timbuctu got a reaction from zargoth in The virtue in levelling slowly!   
    I purchased a Tier 8 Super Pershing and a Tier 7 Panther M10 a couple of weeks ago so I could participate with my clan mates when they were platooning in those tiers.  I also wanted a trainer for my other crews.
     
    I'm doing fine in the Panther M10, but my SP is abysmal.  I thought I was ready for dabbling in T8 but apparently I am not.  I will still use the SP to participate and train my crews, but not often.
     
    Playing most of my battles now in Tiers 5 and 6, and coupled with the info gained here, I am moving up.  As of yesterdays games, I have moved my 60 day numbers from red to yellow!!!!  And I'm stoked.  Yeah, I know, yellow still blows, but baby steps man, baby steps.....
     
    In short, I agree with the OP.

    Hope the proper people frequent this forum section.
     
    I wanted to say thanks to Neverwish and all the Purples and Blues who have made this forum a place for us baddies to improve.
     
    I spent some quality time reading the good unicum stuff here..... specifically Diss's guide for 49%'ers, Deusmortis threads on how to take advantage of a good scout, and the draw distance, vision control threads.  Not to mention the section where Unicums answer questions.
     
    As a result of applying these tips, I had the best weekend of my WOT experience.  My damage totals were way up, WIN7 and Efficiency were almost doubled for the games I played over the two days, and I felt like I was really doing my job in-game.  My winrate did not reflect these numbers, but I think if I can maintain them, the winrate will follow.
     
    Again, thanks to you all, I will continue to farm this forum for ways to improve.
     
    I wasn't getting this from the official forums.
