mercy killings

Oh wait, was that the battle where I got the first kill of the game when I one-shotted their scout T-50 who tried to speed past us? Yeah, I'd guess he had a bit under 800-some hit points total compared to the T30's capable damage-per-shot, lol. I forgot I did that... it probably makes me seem an even worse player though because it seems like I got more XP than you off of 'mercy killings' alone. Maybe I did spotting damage - I'm not sure if I have that screen shotted.

Gentlemen, you should be aware that our little thread is currently ranked seventh in the 'Shiny Things' ADV section for numbers of replies, and that we are currently 123 posts behind the "Got a cool watch? Let's see it." thread, of all things

I'm not sure I can tolerate the super long reload, but the lure of the damage.....

I think I will give the T30 a go. I do have a T34 and as far as I'm concerned that's a durn fine tank.

and I'll have to play that T34 to make another 90k to buy the T30

Don't forget the 18 point hit to finish off the T54......

(to be fair.....it was simultaneous hits and if Dave would have hit first, he would have gotten the kill and all the damage credit)

Meanwhile while you two were sizing up each others guns, I was on the other side of the map in a lowly tier 8 (premium with a tier 8 gun at that) leading the push with tier 9's using me for cover.... Our team was dumb that round, somehow we pulled out a win.

At one point the IS-8 was positioned behind me so close that a MS-1 Could not fit between us, and that point came when the OPFOR found us and started shooting.

Well, I'm not sure, but the last two battles I played with my T110E5 went very well, and if that was due to the Vent I installed right before (I had on binocs before), then regarding our earlier posts... Brothers in Arms will be worth it.

I can't say the tank does anything better, but it is doing better for me.



That was the second battle with the new Vent. I'll take it! That's to just about 10500 damage between the platoon.

I rammed a BatChat (that I was sparring with and shooting before) for a Kamikazi today, too:



A BatChat in a light T21... that was cool.
