That'd be cool, thanks. I put the kids down between 8-9, but will probably be on by then intermittently and solid afterwards, barring any honey-do's that get in the way.

Have you guys read any of the rumored changes coming with the next update? Evidently some tanks are getting changed and if you have one you will get the modified version and a premium tank (and extra garage slot to go with it). That's one of the reasons I went with the KV. Supposedly the update is coming end of Feb. or March sometime...

I can hear just fine in or out of game though.
Any thoughts?

You must be running Windows 7. I have to run Vent as the Admin to make it work. Right click on it's icon and there an option to run it as Admin. will fix it.

That's odd, because I'm on Windows 7 and I don't have to do the "run as administrator" to get it to run right....then again, I think my account is already set as the administrator account on this machine.....

No clue. I know a few people that are having this problem with a few games. and this works for them.. and me. I've seen Vent do odd things and we've found a few fixes for them.

I tried arty and it just didn't click. I thought I'd like it due to the way I like to hide and snipe.
I got my Pz38(t) fully upgraded and love it. Got a lucky kill shot off on a tank that went zipping through the friendly base on a scouting run. I had to take a guess on how much to lead and I nailed him. A good battle sure makes up for the bad ones.

I'm away from home for a few days, I should be back on this weekend.

Downloading NA client as we speak. Quick question: If I want to play with my fellow ADVers, do I have to take an ally tank (i.e. US, Russian, etc.), or are German tanks also available?

Username is same as here btw.

I've been playing on the Euro servers for a few days now and slooowly seem to understand what's happening there. There's not a lot of documentation.

Is it correct that you have to play for weeks to get the soldiers to 100% unless you buy gold?
Is buying gold the only way to buy penetrating ammo(e)?

You can get them up to 75% with just credits, but otherwise you have to buy gold or do it the hard way.
Also, once you research everything on your tank, you can switch to accelerated training and all of your exp will go to your crew.
IMO, the premium ammo is a waste if $.

hiding behind a rock out of sight and arty, drop a 150 right in front of them and watch them move
