  1. I am indeed the infamous shitter ;-) I will never be purple and hope like fuck to never ever stoop to red again but feeling like the red headed stop child, it is my salty duty to create entertainment in my stream. Being stuck between less experienced players who seem to have no RNG to purples who play hard around the same players creates a salt vortex I must fill. If I had some of you smiling or giggling, awesome, I like to introduce myself as your comic relief Not sure about that Bulba guybut Crab is a fuckin good player
  2. Your glitches may be tied to the preferences.xml which may be corrupt and can be found in: AppData\Roaming\Wargaming.net\WorldOfTanks Once deleted, you will need to set your game preferences once again but it will kill that annoying glitch which can escalate. I wrote about it in this post
  3. Addicted to mods, specifically Roughnecks. The information it provides on the mini map is invaluable including spotting and draw range.
  4. Fresh cup of Tea: check T49: check 45 Minutes or so / 250k: check
  5. Has there been any progress with the xvm-mod crew to replace the current WN6 with WN8? I read through the previous posts to see this subject was mentioned but nothing more.
  6. x4, x8, x16, x24 I had x32 up until a couple days ago and found the aiming was too sensitive for my shaky hands at that zoom. Replaced it with x24 and all is good. My eyesight is not all that great and the fact that I can see past the leaves to my intended target has made a big difference when playing TD's or sniping in general. I am not sure of the zoom limit but X32 does work. The tank is in your face at this level.
  7. Kraft, do not accept the norm or deny the possible, it is never too late, see below
  8. It is said one must be in touch with their feminine side to companion with cats. How does Ziddy handle this aspect of his life?
  9. Euchre, you have written word for word what I have been trying to compile the past few days. I honestly felt that I was alone dealing with the inner WN7 demons. I placed so much emphasis on WN7 and padding to keep it up there, I forgot to enjoy the game and have some fun. Sometimes a slap in the face is required for one to wake up and realize what has been going on. The comments from our peers are clear and concise and what I needed to read. I spent Monday playing the t49 to "fix" my stats and for who, those here? The clan? Players in general? In my case, yes to all of those. You and

  11. Where da hell did I put my tinfoil hat...
  12. Racing out with the T-49 for that last kill... where the fuck did I get one shot from... or But the PT-A is a medium, you don't play it like a TD... shit, dead again
  13. post is gone... sounded like a good read
  14. Last night while training with the clan, I entered sniper mode only to have the reticle travel to the upper left corner of the screen and begin blooming. I could no longer move the tank yet the game played on around me, The only item affected was my tank and the only controls that worked were the Esc key and chat window. I used the X (upper right hand corner) to get out of the game. Relaunched and re-entered training. All was fine until I used sniper mode. Multiple reboots of the game and the system did squat to fix the issue.(stats took a shit dive for my efforts) I removed all mods: Sa
  15. I believe it is just me and my poor eyesight, but I find the font used very thin looking, skinny even. The size of the font looks good though.
  16. The English forums over at modxvm.com found here is your best source to find out if there are any issues with XVM. It has been solid since the server migration last month.
  17. Why does real life have to interfere with our daily pleasures? Good luck and hope you find a happy balance as many will miss you here.
  18. I do this regularly with some success and is tightly associated with the 3T's: Tier, Tank and Tacurracy. I may be worng but would this post be suited for the Words of Wisdom thread found
  19. Heading to bed, but will get that fixed tomorrow and thanks for the heads up. Fixed
  20. Not sure if I understand your question entirely. The PT-A is a glass tank. Best used for vision control and sniping. With the bush degradation from 8.7, I find I need to use more hard cover or large bushy area's to achieve my goals. If possible; like on arctic region, I like to control the middle of the map and light tanks for pubbies to shoot at with the occasional shot fro myself of course
  21. I struggle with many tanks, but when I can take what I learn from WoTLbas, and DO NOT potato, I am happy The battle came down to a PT-A and T-54 on their side and myself and a T28 Proto. I would have still been happy at this point if it had been a loss as I used all the tools at my disposal. After watching the replay, I see a few mistakes I made that I will need to work on. Critique if you would please. http://wotreplays.com/site/359089#arctic_region-oldmonkei-leopard_prototyp_a
  22. Soloing is such a lonely word (and as CrabEatOff states, never solo, ever!). However there are many times I find myself in that exact situation. One habit I have gotten into is to not only check the enemy rooster for tank composition but our own team as well. What am I looking for? Hopefully a damn good player or at the very least one of equal ability as myself. If there are a couple or more gud players, I will wait a few seconds to see where they are going, Seeing one head to a known hot spot, I will follow and work alongside that tank to clear the area. It does not take long for the
