Unfortunately when you sell it they give you 50% - so you'd net negative 20%

This will be a good excuse to play my IS7 a bunch s

Of course, the fine was heavier than the compensation.

I don't know if it's worth lodging a complaint over or not.
Was just making sure the gun worked... not my fault you drove in front of me!

I know that feeling... I was rolling out in my Pz1 and got about ten feet before blowing up. Some idiot in a tier VI something or other put a round through me. No apology or nothing.... and the compensation was a lot less than I would have made in the round had I even survived a few more minutes....

I tk'd a T21 with my M43 yesterday. He zipped in on the 2801 as my round was in the air. I said sorry right away. He was ok with it because I apologized. Poop occurs.

JS-3 is a hugely fun tank.

That would be a two week period starting tomorrow, and May 1st is a big day in old Soviet Russia, so this whole thing makes sense. I would say not to make any major tank buying moves today, just in case.

damnit. figured though.

I need 30k xp in the IS3 to get the IS8.
I need to know if it's worth it.

Remember I also am grinding credits for the T110E4 and IS4.

Found a "best of" WOT mod pack here:
http://wotmodsdl.com/mods/best-wot-m...5-version.html

It looks pretty good, even if a lot of stuff is in Russian.

The top center display is part of the game engine.....it has nothing to do with XVM.

I had a sneeze shot at the beginning of a game a few weeks ago with the m41, it ended badly for the Cromwell that played catch... He was mad, I apologised profusely, he contacted my clan commander who just laughed at him. No he was not associated with the m4's that tked bill and I earlier.

sent from my abacus.

A word for anyone buying a new tank.

First,when you get the tank,make sure to BUY BULLETS before you enter battle.

Second,when you buy the tank,and free exp the top gun on it,MAKE SURE YOU MOUNT THE GUN,THEN BUY BULLETS for it.

lesson learned,I guess.....:facepalm
