Well, I lost 200K tonight trying to get a win in my KV-4.....never happened. Every team was clueless, and most of them were steamrolls by the other side.

Same here, lost 8 in a row in my IS-8, T-54 & IS-3 battles, that's about losing 10K credit per battle..

Wow, I'd turn around and there would be two of us left with ten red tanks closing in. Still had fun but damn! Almost got the Pershing.

I ended last night 5-3. I was going to do one more battle to get my x3 in the Pershing and got booted from the client. Took so long to reload that I said heck with it and retired.

Had an epic battle in Abbey with the M12. 4 kills, 4 injured and 2 scouts There was a T95 that made it to the north base from the east road while a Ferdinand was coming from the west side to cap. No sense hanging around dying, so I headed out. I stormed up the middle in TD mode (passing a Tiger 1 from our team), shot a T28 TD that was holding the T95 up. Got to the cap and stuck one inthe back of a Tiger2 that was next in line for the T95. There was one of those T28 prototypes hiding to teh west and he missed me one shot, I got a round near him for damage, than he got me with his next shot. Almost 30k silver with that battle.

I should figure out how to record battles.

Almost got Invader with the Priest last night too

Not sure if I should keep grinding to the M40/43 or just stick with the M12 for a while. that thing just turns soooooo sloooowwww.

There is a switch in the settings menu to turn on replay recording. It saves a WoT native file in the replays folder inside you WoT folder. From there, FRAPS to get an AVI file and then Windows Movie Maker or similar to shrink the size. Check with Ebein....he's gotten pretty good at making them.

My IS was getting a bunch of kills last night, as well as my Grille. Got 5 artillery kills and my team still lost. Annoying.

Haven't played in a while, weather has been too nice to sit inside.

I would have liked to stay in and play last night. It was 107 with around 60% humidity. It was like breathing and drinking at the same time. Ugh. Then I had to play volleyball. I love wisconsin weather.

I'll look into that movie thing tonight.

picked up my Tiger II last night. Got a sniper and Ace tanker badge on my PZIV in one battle, i think that's the second Ace tanker on that tank. Finely learned how to make the PZ38nA an effective tank.

Is it worth training a crew to 100% if you don't plan on keeping the tank?

For example I just got an M5 Stuart but will eventually trade it in for a Chaffee. If the M5s crew is at 100% can I retrain the crew without gold to a level over 75%?

AFAIK, you can move crews between the same classification (light/mid/heavy/TD/SPG) of tanks and keep training them and they will still get exp for their classification.

Once you reached the particular designated tank that you think you want to keep, spend the gold and train them specific to that particular tank.

Proficiency bonus from 100% commander can add (in combo of fan/bino/gun rammer, etc) to 125% for the rest of the crew; which means your tank will travel at 125% of it's max speed, load 125% of loading time, 125% of its view/radio range, etc....

If you transfer a 100% crew to another tank of the same class (light to light for example), they will drop to 80% without spending anything on the retraining or 90% if you spend 20K credits per crewman.
