I generally don't talk much on TS. Usuallly the missus is in the same room harrasing me for talking to the PC I apologize if anyone can hear her banter.

I was going to pitch the RAM, just don't like that tank. The Valentines a tier 3isn't it? I don't have a lower tier tank anymore.

I have the rammer on everything. Even the Churchill's 6 pdr. It can't penetrate anything but other tanks back off when you keep slinging a round at em every 2 seconds.

I have a couple camo nets and throw them on a tank when I go into battle, just in case I end up camping and sniping. I bought one set of binocs that I swap around too.

I have the gun laying drive on the arty. For arty it really makes a difference in aim speed.

If you are in your M26 and come across 2 opposing obj. 704's, a E75, and a 4502p it's ok to back off and go the other way.

I was platooned up with RecoilNorth and Que Pasa last night and they were able to enter a new TS channel. When I tried to follow I got the insufficient priveleges ding.

I was hoping for 1/2 off Equipment this weekend also, but No Joy.

50% more Creds will be nice though ( M4, Easy 8, Jumbo, Egg & ARL 44 in the garage )

I don't play arty, but I forgot about that....I have it on my Pz III and it amazes everyone the stuff I can hit with the peddle to the metal.

I am looking forward to this weekend.

I hate to say it, but I've played enough that I now believe there is some type of built-in at-speed aiming cheat. Far too often in my 13 75, and other tanks, I'll hit something that really isn't close-by while not really thinking I had the aim down at all.

Similarly, take a look at that video I posted pages back about my friend in a GW Panther at speed, angling, and shooting in the general direction of a mid-distance arty... he smacked it dead.

I'll take credit for some personal skills, but the aiming while traveling near whatever-tank's top speed is something I am not going to claim is my doing. I'm serious when I say I believe there is some type of magnetism-toward-given-object that is in the reticule when at speed. I think the reality is that most of us would miss more than we do.

Shoot I wish it worked when I was not moving....the stuff I miss standing still can really tick you off sometimes.

Half the time I think the game spites just me to keep me away from that sniper award

But really I can't wait to get cranking tonight after I get home....gotta swing by the DMV that will most likely put me in the right mood to start shooting things

In general, the shell will land on your cursor about 40% of the time, regardless of how fast you are going. Because math.

When you are crossing a field on a non-french tank and you spot targets, take a moment and think about how long it will be before you get to aim a shot. If that time interval is longer than reload time, fire on the move.

If you cant switch channels in TS, it's because i havent switched you off of the guest permission yet. I may have given Smerf the ability to do so, but i don't remember. Ill try to get everyone switched when i get back on Sunday.

You didn't give it to me because I'm stuck in the guest group too.
