It was fun lastnight....hopefully with tomorrow off I can play a little later tonight....and some on wed. during the day.

But by far I was the limiting factor....I am clueless about "how" to really do well in this game...I think I just get lucky or the other guys are that much worse then myself....if that is possible. But I do have fun playing, and I do have fun taunting the other guys. Don't do it much when we platoon, still trying to figure out that mic thing....and I have just driven out in the open or not moved while talking...or hit the push to talk button and think the tank sould be moving....hay I am slow....but I will get the hang of it....and it is a ball....I think we did pretty well last night....I actually don't think I am doing too bad I am taking so many pills these days I rattle when I walk....can't wait till I am all better.

Last evening I woke up early for my night shift, and the clan was really active... so i just had to see if I could fit in to a few battles with you guys. We all had a real good time, although I think the only battle both platoons made it into was one where we were on opposite sides. FPGT72 was kind enough to put up with me and platoon with me. The first battle he and I ended up in had me lagging worse than I've ever seen, even through my first two or three encounters (and kills), and I really thought the lag was going to have my tank just wander out into the open. It kept moving, turning, and going forward well after I stopped using the keys. But somehow it cleared up enough for this:
Victory!
Battle: El Halluf Monday, July 02, 2012 8:07:33 PM
Vehicle: KV-5
Experience received: 2,882 (x2 for the first victory each day) (wonder what that would have been with premium?)
Credits received: 83,410
Battle Achievements: Böelter's Medal, Steel Wall, Top Gun, Mastery Badge: "Ace Tanker"

Edit: I got eight kills, but was sorta stressful... initially I thought our team wasn't doing anything, but in retrospect they did everything right. A team that stays alive and just holds the opfor's capping and advances at bay long enough to allow something like my KV-5 to do a flanking operation is a very good team. I always think it's kinda hilarious when a big ol' KV-5 is sweeping deep behind enemy lines alone. Our team can see I'm there on the map, but most of their team is clueless I'm back there, tunnel-vision aimed at our team on the opposite side.

FPGT72 certainly held up his end of the battles, and it was a great little platoon we had there.
