I can walk you through it if I see you in teamspeak. I'm sure others would be willing as well.

I will probably be trolling more with my Hetzer after work tonight until my hockey game. That is way too much fun. It's like an ultra-mobile invisible artillery. I've got a camo net, camo paint, and my crew is at ~90% camo skill. Most people don't see me coming until after an individual HEAT round has forcefully removed them from the game and I drive by leaving a trail of destruction in my wake.

You need to get out more, but you should first post something in Jo Mamma. You'll fit right in. Half the people in there haven't seen their own motorcycles in months.
In.
No I don't own one. Yes I've seen one. I watch motorcycle racing every chance I get. Whether it be street or dirt. My favorite bike is a Ducati. My name on WoTs is Hozukimaru.

I only wish my crew was that well trained, but they are about 75%, which of course makes it slower, less agile, and highly un-accurate.

Sometimes there is only so much you can do when your team folds around you.

Last night sucked after the 2x reset. I couldn't get a win on anything. My T25and Patton are still in the 30's% percent win range
I tried to go up the brit tree to the church I.

The matilda defeated me.

Tied the M7. Not for me I tend to play WOT like I played paintball. I was a midfield player. I like to let the fast guys run out and show me what I can shot at. I wish I had a good enough connection to play the US server but I tried and the lag is so bad the tank was all over the place or just spinning in a circle.. If anyone here plays on the SAE server look me up I use the same tag. kingdm54.

Great info here. Thanks for all the insite and help.

LOL...

I used Free XP to avoid tiers 1, 2, 3 and 4 in the heavy line, and used it to also fully research the Churchill I before playing it. it is very easy to live with at this stage, but I've never spent that much Free XP all at one time before this jump.

The Churchill I gets top-tier for the battles probably 80% of the time it seems, so it's a fair tank to run.

If that's the case, I think we need to change the decal to the triangular one.....make it a more appropriate symbol to the red team.

3) From the wot-xvm site, download xvm-3.3.0.zip and xvm-stat-1.1.0.zip and save them to desktop.

4) For both archives: Right click archive -> "Extract all..." -> select game folder -> "Extract"

5) Navigate to the game folder. You need to create config file:
\res_mods\[GAME VERSION]\gui\flash\XVM.xvmconf
You can select ready config file from \xvm-doc\samples\ directory.

6) Navigate to the game folder.
Find the wot-xvm-proxy.exe file
Rt-click drag the wot-xvm-proxy.exe file to your desktop.
Choose 'Create shortcut here'.

7) Double click the shortcut to launch the game.
the xvm file says .net has to be 3.5, not the latest, then gives a link to a version checker. however anytime I try to run the version checker, it gives me a script error
running xvm-stat.exe opens up a dos style dialog box and launches the game, but no visual difference from normal launching
