Saw my first Sheriff. In an Object. I was not the one to kill him.

Got my code via email. i'll see if it works this evening and report back.

Nothing exiting last night. I had to remind a couple ffolks that it was just a game. Like (West field, defend) "HEY PL hide in the trees and don't die!!!!" I don't reply, but instead I charge, kill 3 guys in my Tiger P, damage 3 others and get cooked up by an E8 "I told you to stay hidden! Now we're gonna lose!" I replied, it's only agame and that was kinda fun. "I keep losing credits because of morons like you!" Maybe you should develop more sound tactics, maybe you should stick with checkers? I got lol'd by most of the team.

Y'all may get a report on me for TKing. Last night we where running our PZVIs and had 2 KV-1S's one fought to the death. the other stoped up on the hill and barked orders as the rest of us slowly died or sniped the people coming across the field to the cap. it got down to me (PZVI) a Dmax and two artys, a m41 and a Grill i think. still he barked orders and said just sit and let it go for a draw. at that point I was pissed and told the other team to go kill him because he refused to help us, he was still at 100% and parked up by the windmill. he them barked at me something I don't remember what something about me being a bad team mate. well he turned and came back at us, (the 3 of us still fighting) my view range was good enough that I could see anything that moved and I was taking shots every time something lit up. as was the arty. slowly we where chewing them down. and here comes the ass. bark bark bark. so i rotated and fired a shot into him with the neutered 75 that my pore PZVI now has. took of like 10% and i go back to fireing at the other team, her shoots me, so me and the Dmax fire on him and I get the kill, did not turn blue tho. so now it's just me and arty.. we lost.... I hate heavy players like that. Oh and no one else said anything about me killing him.

Got my gold after a nice email to the seller.

Still a weird, surreal experience, but now the coffers are full and I'm set for quite a while. Thanks.

I wouldn't worry about it. Sound's like your finger slipped (a few times) and you almost thought about feeling bad.

It's only the first time the seller is doing a "Group Buy" deal, smoother transaction will occur as the process progresses.

Did you get gold for cheap?

Did you get your gold within 24 hrs. of payment?

The mistrusting people always will make things more difficult, often times without any knowledge of the reality. I was only trying to pass on a good deal to the ADV clan.

FWIW, I did not email the seller. I waited patiently for the process to finish.

I think it would be nice to add a blocked players list to WoT so those really super annoying people can be tagged so you don't go into public matches with them.

Like I said before,

I can not be certain why others did not receive the bonus codes for their order,

but do try and contact the PayPal invoice sender to inquire about your order.

Make sure you include the unit(s) of gold you ordered and the amount you paid in your email.

Better yet, forward your PayPal payment receipt email and ask for the status of your gold delivery.

I had a dingleberry pull that "I'm the General of this team" crap once.....definitely a "oops, my finger slipped" moment....

I usually give out 3 warnings before TK.

I've only shot tanks that camp at base, who does no contribution to the battle, not even shout out orders.
Usually the fast moving tanks: M5 Stuart, M8A1, BT-7, T-28, Pz 3/4.. those who refuse to scout or help cover flank when allies are in need of help.

I would ask by typing in-game chat, specify location by ping, repeat the request.

By the time the request for help is refused or ignored and our team is up by 2-3 tanks, I would send out a final warning for TK, by then I usually have 3-4 enemy kills, TK fines do not matter to me.

On occasions, I would still get my TopGun award after TK.

I'm seeing evidence, in name and not responding, that we have actual Chinese and Japanese players here in the American server. I'd suggest being careful about shooting people who don't respond to us asking for help.

------------

In other news, I have fully researched the KV-13 and found it a better tank than I thought it would be, but it certainly forced me to learn to play it as a medium. From that researching I was able to buy the T-43 for a lateral-move to that tier 7 (to move up the Soviet medium line while bypassing some crappy lower level mediums). So far I think I have 4 or 5 wins in the T-43, and only one loss. The wins aren't something i can take direct credit for since I have only been top tier maybe once, but the tank seems to be doing well for me now that I'm using the 'medium' skills I learned on the KV-13.

I've had days and days of far more wins than losses lately... the shame is that with 10k battles my win-rate percentage is just barely going up... been stuck at 52% for weeks when my friends and I have really been winning 80% to 90% of the games we've teamed up together for. I'm lucky because I get to platoon with two up-and-coming guys that are blowing me away (0ldmanJenkins and BeepBeep - i hotlinked their stats there). They've just come into their own lately and are owning tiers 7 through ten. Either one, IMHO, are ready to be taken in to the main Guerrillas clan (we (Rebellion) are a feeder clan for Guerrillas)... I don't know why they keep allowing me into their platoons, lol.

It sure makes the game better to play with effective teammates.
