Though I had it reinforced to me that areas that aren't covered by checker-board colors really are hard to penetrate even if they are on the very back of the turret.

I should actually rely on it more.

And, yes, I bought back the M7 and saved up about 25,000 XP with it. I was doing alright with it (use Gold rounds for all daily-doubles on it, or it's just about useless), but then it hit me why I hated that tank so much. I can hit and pen an unbelievable amount of times, but it just does no damage. You can be the best player on the team with it and still not have enough power to force or sway a win compared to the better-gunned tier 5's.

What the fuck is it with people platoon with a tier1 and the other member is in a tier VI or so. Three games tonight with this stupid shit.

Just so fucking pissed at this stupid shit....calling him out on it before the match starts, so the platoon mate of the tier 1 decides he is going to block me....that is fine...I am in a heavy, he is in a med....guess who is going to win the pushing match....I pin him against a ruin building and we both die there.

I just don't get it.

Was I an ass....well yes, but at that point I really did not give a fuck.

Of note:

The Type 59 and Type 62 are both receiving play balance adjustments.
The IS and KV-1S are both getting armor nerfs.
Downed trees now count as camo.
You are no longer able to retrain crewmen to tanks which are researched but are not present in the Garage.
I hope they really fuck with the type59. Its way too good (cuz i dont have one )
its fast with fast turret traverse, and a killer gun. i cant even say how many times i cant get aim on one while they circle around and destroy any tank i am in

Hate to say it, Boomer, but the adjustments are mostly buffs......not that I, as a Type 59 owner, think they were needed.

Boomer, keep an eye on the gift shop. I wouldn't be surprised to see the Type pop up in there on special for the last couple of weeks of the month. No guarantees, but it's definitely possible. If it doesn't happen then, it will happen by the time they roll out the Chinese tree.

You're blowing it out of proportion. They're not really buffing it that much. It's not as much of a buff as the multiple times they've nerfed the Easy 8.

Can someone copy and paste again? I can't access the WoT thing from work.

I can read ADV, shop for womens underwear, research bomb building materials, but I can't go on gaming websites or Facebook

Same here, except for the Facebook thing... I am amazed at what the Government chooses to block, and what it decides is ok...

Some areas are getting 30mm MORE armor.
