  1. Much like tanks made sacrifices to distance to keep things interesting, WoWS needs to do the same thing, but for time instead of distance. I know what you feel about maps being too big and too small - playing the game at 1.5-2x speed (no changes to cap timings or battle duration) would mitigate a lot of problems.
  2. If I were Smylee, I'd be more insulted by that bribe than an actual apology; he has reasons to feel hurt and I owed him an explanation not a notion that I see 10k as more valuable than his feels. A clan is more like a family than a corporation; taking toys away from the belligerent and giving them to the aggrieved is how you settle disputes in a family... between toddlers, not adults.
  3. I believe "wow... seriously... dude c'mon..." was my official response to Huck's impulse decision. For the record, everyone I've removed from OTTER (and there has been many) has had a message from me explaining why... it's simply common courtesy. Huck and I don't always see eye to eye, nor do Random and I, nor did External and I; I won't rule with an iron fist, I won't demand that guys there every night check with me on every decision. I certainly would have liked to have signed off on this but until Easter I only have an hour or so each night in which to play tanks and talk with my officers. Being involved in every decision while somewhat afk makes otter a stagnant beast, and I refuse to do that - I can only contribute what I can contribute, just like everyone else. I wouldn't usually air laundry, but honestly this basket isn't very dirty anyway. Smylee, you attended 3-4 stronghold raids with us since you joined, you were also present for a handful of civil war battles but since then neither our clan or I have seen you. If I had to ballpark your overall attendance, it was less than 1 battle for every 7 days you were here. The conspiracy theorists among us suggested that you had socked more for BULBA in the last month than he had played for us; with the bar set at 0, this was a tough assumption to disagree with. We're less than a week from the invitational, and for someone that should be picked first on our A team... you haven't been here for any of it. I can see why it happened, but like you, the 'how' is the source of my disappointment here. I can't turn back time, all I can do is talk to people and convince them that talking to each other is the only way that people don't get burned in the future. Our officers had a quick relapse but this has been the first time recently I've been mildly annoyed at my officers doing something that shoulda been checked with me first when 9 months ago it was a daily occurrence. I can't claim OTTER is perfect, but I can say we learn from our mistakes... Since several of my officers have posted and haven't said it, I will; Sorry Smylee - that was shitty of us.
  4. omg its google the point of recruiting a streamer is you don't have to grow them at home.
  5. We wants 1-2 decent and active streamers to do their thing and also some OTTER CW/Stronghold Raids/CW Exhibition from time to time. Mad goaldz negotiable. Rerolls with less than 10k battles need not apply. PM me here or on the WoT forums.
  6. Tan must be having a wonderful holiday season. Nothing brings joy to a person like thousands of people calling you an incompetent scumbag.
  7. Who is the girl in your DP?

    1. Ollie Tabooger

      Is someone horny now?

  8. The day he last shit posted is the day he left...

  9. tbh this is pretty tempting, but im not a fan of the reliability or price point of 1st gen new stuff.
  10. Quake HQ, ~270 on VDSL2. It seems I was trying to justify spending an extra $100 on beer instead of CPUs, so yes the i7 is likely in my future.
  11. Something I do a lot of is taking poorly written complex queries and making them better while ranting about indexes and pulling hair out by the fistful when I see people needlessly sorting tens of millions of rows that they table scanned using a nested loop join they googled. And yes, I meant the 4690K.
  12. Gents, before hitting reply, please consider I have a low tolerance for bullcrap, fanboyism and opinions of those that googled the topic for 3 minutes I've been putting off upgrading my PC by selectively buying parts and upgrades at various points. Initially I was waiting for Ivybridge to be released before I upgraded from my Phenom X6 1055T in order to stream but during that wait my interest in streaming waned and I kinda forgot about it. Recently my friend has upgraded to some i5 based computer built 12 months ago and playing around with Tanks on maximum settings while streaming 1080p has resulted in sudden and dire epeen envy. Given climate of where I'm at I have a large air cooler which will let me overclock well during winter and stick with stock clock rates when it's warmer. A little bit of research later and I'm pretty much settled on the i7-4790K when it becomes available from my local hardware vendor "shortly". I do a lot of CPU bottlenecked (but thread optimized) work crap at home so the i7 seems a logical choice for me. That being said, the i5-4670K is also a contender up for consideration but to make an educated decision between them requires knowledge i don't posses. I know that in the case of a single threaded cpu application with few/no other threads of significance, the i7 will perform reasonably equally to the i5 given the other logical processor will be essentially idle. If I am to be streaming WoT while running a few instances of sql server and visual studio in the background then it is likely that the 2nd logical processor will be under load, and that performance will be drained from the WoT logical processor. If I went with the i5, then WoT is going to dominate a single core and my other services will be left to fight over the other 3, though I do appreciate some threads will get some time on the "wot core". So my question is, is the hardware and/or os smart enough to avoid using the 2nd logical core of a hyper-threaded cpu if the first logical core is getting slammed, and will I get any performance gain (in theory) in Tanks by going for the i5 instead (assuming all performance losses/gains outside of tanks have negligible care for me). Other components are 9790, 16gb of decent ram, a raid of solid states etc - everything outside of the cpu/mobo combo is less than 18 months old.
