I would say the game revolves around me because every team I'm on loses because I suck. I swear we lose 90% of matches.

if I see a t50 on the opp team I'll hang back at our base just to kill the fecking thing. They usually ignore the lowly t-28 and head straight for the arty, big mistake with mine, 85mm gun, elited and 100% crew, it's a hoot

Even the kv3 and is are targets with that thing

on a Hetzer, almost to a stug. Knocked out a KV last night. Need to learn to camp/hide more, but I get bored...

and my tier 4 light tanks seem to go up against tier 8-9 last night, so I did a quick scout and then hid in a corner.

I was going to use the name "whitneyhoustonscrackpipe", but can't figure out how to change the screenname, so UngaWunga it is.

Hooooly crap, what a difference! Thanks for sharing!


EDIT: perhaps I spoke too soon. One round of 60-90 fps, then the 2nd round was 3-5 fps. Then I got disconnected. Something is afoot.

and on the reboot, it's still slow as a dog, with fleas.

Smithy,

There is no mystery to how the MM works, its broken plain and simple.

They say all kinds of stuff and have been doing that for months and months, because they wont fix it. Instead they hide behind smoke and mirrors. There is no way in hell that a tier 3 medium should ever get matched with tier 7 and 8 tanks no matter how "elite" the tank or crew are. There is no chance in hell that any of the rounds will ever penetrate armor. The developers are of the opinion that 1+1=2 in their game, but its not the case. two tier 3 tanks will never equal a tier 6.

Well, I had a first last night.....I finally managed to bounce an arty shell. I took a shot at a Tiger(P) and got a ricochet. 300+ arty matches an that's the first one I can remember.
