Man, that T1E6 is a terrible little tank. But it's premium, so it goes in the queue for xp/credit grinding.

I haven't logged in yet.. the tank they gave us is Elite? (i.e. you can accelerate crew training in it?)

Yes, though the worth of doing that is debatable. It's a 5-shot autoloader less accurate than a paintball gun.

First time out with the shiny new tank. :)







Atleast this one was not a smoking wreck the first time out.

My two favorite tanks.

Is there a sale on gold? How much of a savings is it from normal?

Also, can you buy normal tanks without installing the game? I'm not at home, but would like to pick up an M6 so I can get to the t29.

Doesn't look like it. But, can you download the client, shop, and then uninstall locally if you're on a relative's computer? Or, dare I suggest, get them to start playing with you?

That new thing works like all the British tanks. Crap.

The Stug is still paying handsomely

Good thing cuz I sold my M36/Jackson and bought the T25 TD (it was on sale!)
