so what mods is everyone using? i use:

XVM (rewrote to show games played IN THE CHOSEN TANK and win rate in that. then it's really nifty!)
Aslain Icon's (i like the bigger tank names that are color coded by class & tiers)
J1mB0's Crosshair (it's just cute)
Remove the shadow when scoped

on my laptop AHuMex's 25% texture compression really helps out

hitbox skins from worldoftanksskins (because their library is larger)

I have a Tracfone. I'm frugal that way.

I don't run any mods.

I tried the fancy gun on th e3601 for one battle. Just doesn't do enough damage to be effective. I like the 88. Now, if I could swap the 88 from the Tiger P to the 3601........

The Konisch on the 3601 is really only effective with gold ammo. Best to stick with the short 88 there.

XVM

Scope shadow remover
LocaPeta's HD Minimap
Demole's Damage panel
DAR Artillery sight
Some hitbox skins, don't remember who's. It's the one that has thin outlines and icons. not the rainbow clown car version.

Some I can live without, but others I'm too used to. Many of the must have mods I used to run are now built into the game.

I quit. Nothing but teams of clueless scrubs tonight, just like the last time I played a week and a half ago. This ain't worth my time. See y'all in Borderlands.

+1 - just had a nicely fought battle, only to turn around and find out the rest of the team had disappeared - 3 to 15 loss.

Holy hell...

I went through the trial that was the tier 4 B1 heavy french tank - I thought I earned my right to an OK tank.

Have any of you played the hell that is the tier 5 BDR french tank?! I mean, sure, I don't have a 100% crew on it... but I wasted a good amount of credits and now have this useless pile of garbage with the top gun, top turret, top engine, and top tracks. What I get for my effort and the use of my XP was a heavy that is slower than any other tier 5 I know of, while having the armor of a light tank that allows anything to pen it, anywhere, from any angle - oh, yeah, and a super-slow reload to ensure that if, by some off chance, you do catch up to where the action is, you will only ever get off two or three shots before the battle ends, or before you die.

I am seriously considering creating one of those Hitler-reacts YouTube videos about this pile of garbage and the garbage we all had to work with before getting to the BDR.

It always sucks to have a really good personal game and find out the rest of the team sucked. I had 4 kills w my IS3 before work. took all 4 almost all of the way down, damaged 2 more. I think I ended up with 600xp as a 2x win.

For its tier, I'd argue, IIRC, that the AMX 40 has OP armor, and one of the best tier-4 guns. I didn't like it at all, but the B1 heavy was worse, and now this BDR is a huge let down considering I've played those others and thought I did the hard part.
