Hehehe....the T-28 is one of my favorite targets when I play my M37. It's as close to a guaranteed one-shot as I have seen.

Only redeeming feature is the 85mm gun you can mount, taking out kv's with three shots is fun, oneshotting most anything teir three or lower is just sadistic
I just sold my T-28 and moved (up?) to the KV. Made me want the T-28 back. The 85mm gun on the 28 actually made it useful and I didn't realize the speed was so good until I got Molasses (KV). Upgraded to that huge target KV2 turret so I can eventually get a real gun on the thing. I mainly bought it for the upcoming KV split.
I find myself playing the MS-1 just for fun, I think I'll even camo paint it.

Found some skins today. The only issue is they are resident only on my PC so I don't believe anyone else can see them. Still fun though...

My elite Tetrarch is my favorite tank, I wish they'd let it play more maps. All day today, I've been on, it's been "Mines" and a veeeery occasional Marinovka (sp?). That sucker will do over 60, and the gun isn't super, but fast reloading and enough of a punch that it'll kill scouts and light arty pretty quick.

I like to slum once in a while and it has a great gun for it's size, and it looks a little wonky. I can't bring myself to part with it.

I had the premium (free) Tetrarch and it wasn't impressive at all.

Just giving you a hard time.....if there is one tier 1 that I'm going to put back in the garage eventually, it's the MS-1.

I seem to be having a problem.ventrilo doesnt seem to work while the game is active.
If i tab out of the game it works fine.
But if im in game,i dont think its transmitting.
I can hear just fine in or out of game though.
Any thoughts?

I always used the steam voice chat with my buddy, I just added the game as a non steam game, then it runs in the background. Its unfortunate that you cant customise the button selection for the WoT in game chat...

Smithy, just team up with a tier 3 tank in the tet and you should get a better map selection.

The only things I can think of:
Do you have voice chat enabled inside the game? That might cause an interference if you do.
Do you have a hotkey enabled (check the Vent setup) and if so, does it conflict with a game control? Stock hotkey is left control, which is a game control. I reset mine to Q and Vent works just fine. I do have to adjust the volumes inside the game so I can hear what's being said on Vent.

What's the link to the Vent channel? I installed it once, but never used it. How do we find each other?
