I was playing my GW Panther last night, and an asshole IS-3 sideswiped me for considerable damage, so I let his ass die while he was crying for arty support.

We still won.

This guy had a weird background on the screen and I was just curious what it meant. Never seen anything like it before.
Isn't NOD the clan we battled in clan wars where they snuck a guy onto our team twice?

If you mean company battles, then yes. I believe that was the clan.
Personally, I don't hold it against them.

I brought a dull knife to a fight last night...

Me: Yeah, I got this!


Me: Boom, MFer!


Arty: Watch this.
Me: HOLY SHIT!


Just a little bit lower...

Edit: That's a nice desktop background...

Didn't want to lose the credits, and he was storming to the front as fast as he could, knocking people aside as he went. And we were on Defense in Karelia. Better to just let him get pummeled without support.

Sometimes I play so fucking stupid I can't believe it.
I get target fixation and forget to watch my flanks and rear. You think I'd learn eventually.

Riddle me this, last night I nicked a teammate for 25 hp with my GW Panther and got fined 1300. Today in my SU-26 I get teamraped by a asshole Bison [ SoundersDaBest {piap} ] and get zero compensation. I got 1 kill 5 damage 86 capture points and a defender

I think I might have just played the fastest round ever.

Map: Karelia

I was in the hellcat.. guarding the left alley and realized they only had one person on the other end.. 3 of us rushed him, killed him, continued to the flag and killed the arti - nobody else back.

Cap took 18 seconds.. nobody get back in time to stop us.

Total of 4 or 5 people died on both teams together

Team Damage Inflicted = You pay a penalty to an amount of four times the repair costs required to fix the damage that was inflicted, limited by the total amount earned during battle.
Team Damage Received = You receive compensation for half the repair costs required to fix the damage or a quarter of the penalty paid by the player(s) who caused the team damage, whichever is lower.

Also note that team damage done to/by someone you're in a platoon with is not punished.

Doing the big switch-aroo in clans again.

Leaving a very good clan solely because I have found that I enjoy TeamSpeak servers that serve more than one clan at a time - this gives me far better chances of meeting people to platoon with at, say, 7 AM eastern standard time than does a single-clan TS server.

to (I have no clue what that cloud means... our symbols on our tanks were -__- for What? clan)

So now I'm off to the Burning Legion. Less opportunity for gold, less clan war wins probably, but... there are SEVEN clans all using the same TS server, and all using the same "Looking For Platoon" channel in it when individual players from any of the clans are looking to play.

I guess this means I gave up my rights to the Gold I earned.

Priorities...

:sigh...

It just isn't my night. Every time I get in a light tank I get one shotted.
Even my med and heavy games are too short.

Maybe someone put a bicycle flag on my tank while I wasn't looking...
Or the headlights are on...

That gives me an idea, do you suppose they'll introduce night or twilight battles?
