I was on and off yesterday. Busy day fixing bikes.cars/vans/boats. Mostly running the Stug, PzIV, and the Su26. I like the PzIV for sniping, you don't realize how slow that turret turns until you get into one of those knife fight type matches.

Man, I like playing that tank sometimes, but I barely broke even in that match.

Alright I'm going to say that my win ratio (in my T34H) is not indicative of.. anything. Yesterday I was basically 1 for1, no matter how well or crappy I did. There's not really a middle ground, It seems i'll either open a can of whoopass on the enemy team and we lose anyway, or i'll get raped wtithin the first minute of the game by 5 other tanks and an S-51 and we win. And anything in between.

Theres a lot of maps where its tough to hide that hull :/

I've been having a hell of a bad run in my Patton lately.
I my win ratio in it dropped a couple % just this weekend.

I'm hoping that the good 105mm will change things when I get it in another 20k exp.
It a slow grind when you don't win though.

I've been playing the Su-26 more. That little guy does pretty good. Pays way more then the Priest.

Last night I was reading about the Battle of Tunisia and the role of artillery there. Good reading.

Got my first complaint about the clan tonight.

Quote:
A certain clan member of yours, --redacted--, observed a friend of mine i was platooned with during a match attempting to see if she could track me. He then took it upon himself to kill said friend without warning. I preceded to kill --redacted-- as revenge for killing my platoon member, who had only been joking with me. Upon me killing him, he preceded to be rude and insulting, attempting to blame us for the loss in match, when really, it was him that lost the match as he could have just left it alone. I noticed that on your WoT clan page, there is a line that says "don't be a dick". Apparently he needs to reread that line. I know it's not my place to say this, but I would advise some sort of disciplinary measure, to ensure that he doesn't overstep his boundaries again. Whether that is a temporary exclusion from clan, or he be placed under some form of probation, is up to you. Just make sure he doesn't do it again, or next time, I wont be so pleasant.

to which I replied...

Quote:
Noted, but based on your description, it was a situation asking to be mis-read, especially in the heat of battle. I have never seen anyone "jokingly" damage a team-mate in standard battle, and such behavior is patently unfair to the rest of the team, since it's a wasted resource. The teamkill, while unfortunate, was an understandable reaction to a perceived threat. Of course the more noble reaction would have been for him to report your friend, and that would be the end of it. You, of course, could have been the better player yourself, and preserved a valuable team asset and merely reported my man for team damage. Regardless, his account has suffered the penalty associated with the teamkill. And now, so has yours.

What has that gotten anyone?


Nothing, but inflamed attitudes and distractions from what should be a fun game.


My suggestion, if you and your friend want to blow each other up, is to do it in a training map, not a game setting where players care about their win rates and expect good sportsmanship from other players. That is the height of needless dickery in my opinion.


If that's not how you see tihngs, you may politely bugger off. We don't have time for this childish rubbish.

Was I too harsh?

Pretty funny. Sometimes I hit a team mate and I always type in sorry...or you zipped in front of me...or something to that effect. The only time I have shot a team member is when they are rolling around killing people. I had one guy telling the other team where our guys had setup. That person I did report....and by the number of people typing in reported I guess that I was not the only one....he is the only guy I ever reported and I had to ask how to do it.

I get pretty worked up about the game (see my arty rants) but I really don't have a problem with people as long as they play the game right. I may toss in an ass hole, or fucker in there from time to time, and I love to belittle arty....but I think that is just getting a little too into the game.

But this brings up a question I have never gotten a clear answer on.....are blue guys fair game.....I don't shoot even blue guys unless (I) see them being stupid.

you won't get penalized for attacking them if that's what you mean.
