No camo?! I like the MS-1 a lot.

I tried that earlier this year when I broke my right wrist. Arty will keep you playing. Don't bother trying to scout with anything.

I spent a lot of time honing my sniping skills. Use a Stug

Too bad it wasn't the middle finger.

Bind fire to the space bar.

Or, get a Trackman: http://www.amazon.com/Logitech-910-0.../ref=pd_cp_e_1

you could use a laptop with mousepad. which sucks but usually works. if you discount random misfires when moving the curser

just got this



eh. that's too small. anyway. Grille, 5 kills, 2 kills of tanks in the cap zone.
I'm actually pissed I only got 1600xp, especially at x2

it beats my previous personal best of 4 kills in the the Churchill

Jeez, the grind for the M24, T50-2 are soooo long. Getting close to the M18. The Mrs. is very happy with the churchill and M2LT. Going to buy her a M22 so we can do some his and her scouting methinks. She's a complete noob but I'm thrilled to death I can play WOT with my wife.


If you guys ever get lucky enough to get your spouse to try WOT, give em' a churchill to start off with, a great slow learner tank that can take some punishment and ease them into the whole turret view while moving gig we all take for granted.

That's when premium tanks with better credit earning capabilities comes in to help, you can even transfer regular crews to premium tanks without performance penalty.

I used the tier 4 premium French spg alot while grinding my way up to the tier 8, Bat Chat 155, by the time I researched and bought the BatChat 155, not only I had 6M credit extra saved up, my crew was at 320% trained (100% plus 2 skills at 100% and 3rd at 20%).

How did I know the announcement of the 8.0 release was going to be no farther in advance than "hey, the servers are down now to upgrade".....

Damn nice score Smithy......




So, are we placing bets as to how long the upgrade insanity level of play is going to last this time around? Personally, I expect to have a lot of T-50 and VK 2801 target practice for the next week.
