Bodwick, that's simply an awesome game. Seems like you're one of those T-50-2 drivers that looks so pro out there... I really hope you don't mind if, for the first time we team up, I shoot your T-50-2 at the start just to get it out of my system... ('cause you f%ckers are so damned hard to hit any other time) Afterward I'll more than happy to play with ya

Been enjoying the Soviet side tanks, and decided to try out their SPGs. I'm not the best player in the world, but holy crap is it slow gaining XP. Is there a secret way to run arty, or does the SU-18 just suck?

The SU-18 just sucks......that's the only tank that I've played so far that I gave up on.

Thanks Smurf, joined now...

That was an unusually good round Dave, time will tell if my improving tactics pay off in the long run... Feel free to take a shot I carry a repair kit...


Looking forward to teaming up with everyone...

I remember the SU-18, hard grind even with 100% crew.

I had better luck swith it in TD mode, hide in a small bush.

Look for opportune victims, knock out unsuspected prey when their HPs are already low.. cause onceo you fire, they've spotted you.

Crappy past couple of days, totally retarded teams. Then they get mad at me when I can't take out a KV-5 and 2 Type 59's all by my lonesome

If I hide my KV 5 in the corner of the map, I can rush the base at the end and surprise everyone!

We should get extra coin or experience for pointing out stupid people. And I'm not even very good!

Those are a few of the reasons I just love this game....it is so much fun to trash talk people, and it is fun, and frustrating to see how people respond to the fast scouts. I have seen half of my team do a 180 and chase after one.

One of the things I love to say after killing one is Pesky fly.

But some people seem to get really bent on it....it is just a silly game people....and a free one at that.

Poking people with a stick....and getting poked is just all part of the fun.

That seems to be a tactic I'm only just seeing over the last week - KV-5's with full-health reserved for the end-game. Jesus... gotta admit it works, but without me using my KV-5 for pushes my teams just seem to falter.

I wonder if it has something to do with the new reward that is a medal to anyone who stays alive for 20-matches in a row? Really, that just isn't the incentive the typical player needed. Hiding and allowing the enemy to overtake large portions of the map seems to already be most players' forte.

I really don't mind if a couple guys from my my team try to swat those pesky t-50-2's and AMX's. Theres nothing worse than being in a TD or arty and having one jam you up and just pecking you to death with no team support. At that point I'll usually just exit the game and start a new one with a different tank.

It's too bad my crew can't pop out of their hatches and launch a few anti-tank rockets at those SOB's when that happens

I dunno... not like any of us would bother to report a TD that was active up until he got jammed-against. At that point I'd assume he isn't moving 'cause he's jammed, not because he has left the game.
