My laptop has an NVIDIA card, and I got better performance when I turned all the card software off. Goofy... the overhead was sucking so much memory to handle the processing, it slowed down the game.

'Guest' on TS can now switch channels.
It was easier to do that than try to assign everyone's permissions.

LOL - close arty support coming your way!

...

Teams that don't understand how and when you use the arty resources they have drive me nuts. Teammate arties that hit me only sort of drives me nuts... but with the new french arty and every goofball going for them, it's happening more frequently now.

I believe in a mobile arty. Granted, some games arty can just sit in one place, but when push comes to shove on maps like Lakeville, the pro arty (when there are only one or two arty per team) knows to move to lay as much damage as possible. And this just isn't my opinion - I'm working with a group of guys in another clan who have high stats, play well, and have high expectations for new recruits. I just began the two-week probation period where I need to play with as many of them as possible to show them what I can do, but I distinctly remember hearing them agree that it was a very good thing when our one arty (in a random public battle) decided to move to support the pushes (not because it was being pressured).

Likewise, on Lakeville last week I did all I could do, but died. I was well aware of what was up forward and what was coming toward our base but was now hidden. I advised our GW Panther to move to center to stop the enemy push. He raced over and set up just in the nick of time, negated the IS-8 and one other, then rushed back to the valley to continue supporting the forces there. Awesome job, I'd say, and a prime example of the type of arty most would want on thier team. Some arty can't really do it - for example, for the benefit of being "the hand of God" in damage, the S-51 is too slow to be the same tactical advantage that a GW-Panther or Hummel is to a complex map and battle. The S-51 strikes down the dumb with furious anger, but the German line seems to counter the smarter teams better.

I had a pretty fun game last night....but I really have to learn to look at the little map and to see how many guys are left. On this game I was the last guy for around 3 minutes....the other guys had to be overly stupid....I am no where near this good.
But I had to save this for all time....and look at the crew...I did not want to spend the money to train them up.

Hey, that's awesome! I agree with the crew thing... Generally most of us will have premium tanks around long enough that training them up from 75% seems far more prudent than paying gold for 100%'ers. I think I've only ever upped two crew members to 100% by using gold before, and both were Gunners. I felt that the gunners' ability to lay aim far outweighed the extra benefit of training the commander if I only had to train one to 100%.

Now-days with that "Mentor" skill on the commanders I could understand a better argument for training him up over the gunner... maybe... but I'm one of those guys who uses the guns on my tanks a lot.

The Valentine is kind of fun. Not much for damage, but the lower tier stuff evens it out.

The E8 payout is awesome. I had some really good matches with it too. You can tell there are some new E8 drivers out there. It is not a heavy tank

I got a 30k game in the M12 this weekend, 4 kills, 4 injured, 1 scout
I hit an M103 fo 1010 damage and close to the same on a KV-5 (he was NOT happy).

I updated my drivers for my video card yesterday and since then the video shows a good frame rate but is "jerky". Somehow my sound and mic stopped working. I'm too much of a dumbass to change anything but basic settings, so I'm not sure what happened. Niether my external speakers nor headset work. Hard to platoon without communication.

It was WoTfest for me yesterday....after helping at a wedding all day on Saturday, I wanted to do nothing but vegetate. Ended up 44-28 with a KV-4 in the garage and 3.3 million in the bank. Lot's of E8 and T1 heavy play yesterday (thanks for platooning timk). Here's hoping the M6 and T29 go on sale for the 4th.

So, is it just me, or does it seem like that "school's out" asshattery and poor teams every round has kind of died off? I had a lot of close matches yesterday, not too many blowouts.

Doesnt seem quite as bad. Though I still had a few bad runs on Al Halouf in Encounter matches.
