They should be able to throw money/people at the map issue though. There are a lot of good map builders out there and they have money to spend.
I would bet that people would be happy to see some of the old maps come back....there are a few that needed (IMHO) very little to be good maps.

On the other hand they need to give up on known bad maps....Dragon Ridge has now been pulled twice....it is not a good tank map....think in history have you ever read of a battle in an area like that? Quit trying to cater so much to the Chinese market.

Sigh..1W-10L tonight.. similar this morning also. Some ugly matches/teams today.

Oh well, at least I got a 70mile ride in today, that more than makes up for some failed video game time.

+140 mile ride in yesterday, and got to see an old buddy I haven't seen for 15 or 20 years.

I was real tired after my long day, but logged in anyway. We had clan wars last night, but I was ready for bed - and just about there - when I was asked to participate in team training. I agreed, loaded up my T110E5 and went in with an ad-hoc team against what I assume was the lead team that was going to fight the battle.

Came away with a win (in a training room, mind you) and second highest damage at just under 5000 damage only to discover that I had been using Gold rounds for the entire practice (I was so tired that I forgot I had Gold rounds set to load first and automatically on the E5 for clan wars), so I got a meaningless win and a huge bill.

I gave up and just went to bed after that.

My matches yesterday were frustrating. couple wins, vastly outnumbered by losses. I'm not that good, but with a good, relatively cohesive team I can make a decent impact. When a whole flank is left open or with one tank guarding it, I tend to go over there and get wiped out. All in the name of helping out that lone tank

Downloaded War Thunder and tried that. Interesting and in my limited time playing, much more fast paced than WOT with a lot more going on. Might bear further looking into to see what develops.

4-2-1 last night.

Sold the Chinese tank and used used free xp to get a KV1s. Transferred my Church crew over and played it a while. I'm running the top 85mm gun/turret/tracks. Not as much fun to play as I figured it would be.

Now, on to video cards! The old system has a PCI-e x16 slot I can use, but it doesn't say if it's a 2.0/2.1/3.0 I assume that I can plug anything in there as long as it's a x16 card?

KV-1S gets more fun when you get the 122mm D-2-5T mounted on it.....

Yes.

I went thru this a month ago trying to run Sim City. Anything PCI-e will work, they just slow themselves down to whatever your chipset will support. I just went to micro center and bought whatever Nvidia based card had a rebate on it. Still does actually. I probably should have spent a bit more, but with the graphics turned all the way down it runs fine, and I need to replace this thing rather than throw money at it.

You do need to check your power supply and see how much you can add - that was a definite limiter for me.

It has a 250w supply in it now, but I have a 450w laying around that I think I can swap in. I find I can get a GT630 or 640 series for $60 or so.

I have enough xp to get the 122mm D-2-5T, but I'm a little concerned with the realllly slow reload time. Or is the damage per shot worth it?

It's worth it.....the KV-1S is the most used heavy in medium tank companies for a reason. Run a rammer and fans and just do it.

This one should have gone live at 0730 EDT this morning....and the deal is on the T-15 German light premium (Tier 3), not the T-14 American heavy.
