I've also switched from the 12.8 to the 15cm on the roomba. But I fire only HE and HEAT. The AP is too unreliable. IMO the the 800hp shots are a better game changer and cause more critical damage. The 12.8 never bounces, but, DERP ftw!

I unexpectedly have Thursday and Friday off, and yard work can always wait.

I've run the big gun on the rhoomba just about all the time since I researched it. I don't run gold rounds in it though. I just have to pick my shots wisely. I feel that taking 600-800hp is a bigger game changer. It makes them think twice about sticking their head out again. And the occasional 1 shot of a medium or heavy from full health doesn't hurt either.

I just won a game, Himmelsdorf and they had taken the hill, we were capping, and I was defending the lane the enemy was coming down. 1-shot to a Ferdi, stopped their charge long enough to cap out. In the roomba with the big gun.

Game-changer.

But it still loses money...



That's the 6,000 silver HEAT round killing my bank, but damn, it's fun to play.

What is this "yard work" you speak of?

You know, to keep the HOA off my back about the jungle that's growing in front of the house.

We've had lots of rain recently; everything is growing like mad.

Diggin the new russian premium TD. It is fun for a Tier 5 and doesn't have any major flaws. Every now and then it'll put together a string of shots that let you know the gunner's drinking vodka but for the most part the bullets generally go where you point them.
