I let the neighbor girl....she is little I think she just had her 5th birthday last week, play mine while her folks where over. She could not drive the tanks real well, but at the time I still had a wespe and she loved that...she did not even have to drive I just told her to hit the shift key and move the mouse and look for the little red dots on this other map....little twerp got like 4 kills in some of the first matches she played....and arty does not usually die fast so she got to play for a while....after that we watched on netflix the tank restore show and (I can't remember the name) Great tank battles? off the net.

I need to talk to her dad and see if she made him download the game for her....it would be funny if that crazy neighbor with all the cars and guns got her hooked on a video tank game.

Hey Skid....I looked up the terribad E-100 player from that last match I played with you guys last night......the guy has played 3100+ battles, 44% win rate.



My only question how did someone that bad get to the E-100 in only 3100 battles???? Talk about a grind......

I'm at an impasse now. I don't get much PC time so what ever is in my garage, I'm stuck with for a while. Too far away to upgrade anything I want to upgrade. I'd like to upgrade from the M12 and then get the Patton so I've been playing those a bit more.


I see the invites, but usually am just logged in in the background and play a battle here or there. I'll put a message on chat if I can hit up the training room.


I tried to play the M26 like a heavy last night and killed an IS-7, a Type 59 and an M41 (lucky long range shot). I died when another 59 and I were playing bumper cars and shooting into each other. Then I stormed the enemy rear when the heavies were duking it out and attacked a GW Tiger. I missed. He didn't

Well, that's what I do, because I simply don't have time to grind every line. I'd like a range to play in, and have tanks in every tier 1-8 right now. Doesn't mean I'm expert in all, or any of them, but I'm here for the fun, not for the "he did it the hard way, woah, look at him" points.

*grumbles* Damn wallet warriors...

No, I'm not aiming that at you all. I'm just jealous since I'm stuck with the stock 5 tank slots

The more I look at his stats (from what I can see in the Android app), it looks like he ran just the one line from the Pz II to the III/IV, then the 3601 to Tiger and down. 120 battles in lights (with a 56% win rate), 630 in mediums (47% win rate) and almost 2200 in heavies (43% win rate). He could have bought the account, I guess......

But you don't suck. He did. Badly
