I was gettting 20 to 30fps with the Nvedia 9800 card that dies on me. The new Radion 6970 factory over clock card I replaced it with gets 36 to 115fps trees pull it down into the 40s. And my Pz38nA gets stuck in with T8s every time. Even as fast as it runs I'm no match for a KV at range. They on shot me at max range.



Out with the old (bottom) in with the new.

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.
you know in te real wars that kinda what happened
i prefer the mixed tiers, each one has a role when everyone plays their role it works great

I was hidden out on the flank about half way up the map when a team member told me to move up and asked what I was waiting for.
I told him I was waiting for a bigger tank.

Been in that situation, but the guys I was with didn't ask me to move up. Turns out that was one of the best battles I've ever had and I only fired 2 shots. Tier 4-8 battle, started in the north base on Prokhorovka in my M5 Stuart (with binocs and camo net). At the start, I rushed down the west border and sat in a bush about 1/2 way down the map. 4-5 heavier tanks came along behind me and sat behind the tree line to my left rear. Not 60 seconds later, here come a Lowe, KV, Ferdinand and Wolverine. I just sat back spotting while the heavies fired from cover. They were far enough behind the tree line that they weren't visible to the other team even when firing. It was a blood bath, and I think I scored 1300+ xp and 28K credits while I just sat there. Perfect, but incredibly rare, example of everyone on the team knowing and doing their job.

I think I still have the replay if anyone wants to see it.

Glad to hear I'm not the only one that likes to sit and spot.
My problem is, sometimes I can't resist taking pot shots as the enemy rolls up/by.

Yeah, that temptation is hard to resist most of the time. I had many times in the past month where my thoughts right after I died were "you fired when you shouldn't have, you idiot".....

That's a 9800GTX, doesn't that have two cores? I think EVGA cards have a lifetime warranty, at least they did at one time.
I have a 9800GT and run at medium at 1920x1080 res and get a solid 30fps.
You'll love the 6970, I X-fired two of them in a buddies system recently and he runs three big HD monitors for CoD with power to spare.

Yeah its a 9800GTX when I built my computer a few moonths ago a friend of mine had two of them he did't use anymore so he let me use one. Well the firsh one had problems so we swaped and then this one had problems. One had already been replaced under warnty. He's had trouble with them since new. I just went ahead and got the card I wanted but couldn't aford at the time. The 9800s are his and since they have been a problem from day one he's probly not going to worry with them any more. And I'm not going to X-fire them, just going to run one.

Ok, that was fun.....Komarin, started on the north side in my Priest. T1 heavy, M2 medium, Luchs and Marder try to come across the center bridge, but stop at the south end when they see our tanks on the north side. My first shot takes out the M2. The next one eliminates the Luchs. At this point the Marder goes full reverse, trying to run away. He died tired with my 3rd shot. 2 minutes into the match, 3 shots, 3 kills. T1 goes full reverse in a panic....

Didn't I hear a rumor of a Brit line of TDs in the future or something?

I think they give the guys that buy tanks the top tier ranking. I've never been in the top tier of a map. Losing interest in this game

Nope, standard HE....but keep in mind that the tanks I one shotted were all 250 HP or less, and the gun on my Priest is capable of 400 damage....

I seem to remember being top tier with my M4. I don't have any Premium tanks. I don't like being at the top of the list, too much pressure.
