I bought a few prem tanks this last week. I like the little valentine...it is kind of fun. Personally I like the low tier battles the best....don't know why I just seem to have more fun tier 5 and below. I am really ticked what they did to my little Pz III....they turned it into a T50 and it is bottom rung on just about every battle I have been in....really sucks. Its gun does nothing to the tier 7-8 tanks I have been trying to fight. that and it seems to get tracked very easy.

I am still on the fence on the tier 3 french prem TD...bought it on a whim and wanting something different then the marder. It seems to hit a little harder, and take a little more damage...but doG it is slow. If there is arty around I usually just hang around it and defend it.

But I think I am going to like it....it is fun...and different, I have not seen many of them...I think its speed turns many away.

Finally got the exp to move on to the T150....think I will wait till the crew gets their first perk before I buy.

I might try some of the other low tier prem tanks....I hope they put matilda on sale soon.

I enjoy the lower tier battles as well.. hence 1300 battles, 19 TopGun in my MS-1.



It's more diffucult to make profit without premium account while operating higher tier tanks..

If you want to try a low tier (SPG) tank that's fun, try a SU-26, but do splurge on the 100% crew, without them, the fun factor do not kick in for a while.

The tier 4 French premium arty 105 le FH18B2 is also cheap to operate/repair and offer good profit with standard account/battles.

That was a blast! We'll have to get some 3-person E8 squads going one night and see what kind of havock we can cause.

That is all.
I think that platoon needs a name:
WolfPack
Piranha Squad
Wild Dog Assault Platoon

Not for me. Matches where everyone goes one side, one shot deaths to me, surprise wolfpacks. Not a good day.

Cat0200, sorry pal but that account was already platooned with others at that time.

Man, every time I log in to Corbon to play there isn't anyone on. Hours yesterday, hours today, except for Cat when I was busy with the other account.... but he's gone now.
:-(

Glad you guys are getting good platoons, but you all must be logging in much later than I can. I'd buy an Easy-8 again just for such fun.

I'd be game to run with you again - running around in 13-75's with you was a blast!
What times are you around?

Just started playing last weekend. Would like to join the clan. I'm HeavyIndustry on WoT.

Re: The red screens, from what I've read this is a bug on 32 bit systems. Reinstalled Win8 as 64bit and haven't had any more red screens

Thanks,
Hugh

Does anyone use a trackball type mouse to play WoT? any feedback of how well it suits the gameplay?



I'm thinking of piecing together a functional unit with the junk ones in the retired office supply pile.

Asked and answered in this very thread, Yes, I find it far superior to a normal mouse. Much less stress on the wrist, much better play. Just my opinion. There are three little sensors under the ball that need regular cleaning, more often than an old ball mouse used to need, it seems, but it's a simple thing to pop it out, de-gunk with a pair of fine tweezers, and pop the ball back in. I can do it on a long load screen if needed.

Sent to everyone that is in the clan, or asked and has been invited, and I didn't already send one to.
