You weren't even there for the conversation after the 3 hour when a female at our table was talking about using her fingers for less nefarious purposes. I says "hold you fingers up once" ok, then I held my fingers to hers. You shoulda seen her jaw drop. Priceless.

I was wondering if I would see a response like this. You have not failed me.

well, this morning I played a few games, surprisingly enough I had a 60% win rate even though I was using my Matilda BP for alot of it.

That's pretty sweet! I guess we won't be seeing ya on FYYFF teamspeak much anymore.

BTW, have the UK or China releases provided new flavor-of-the-month tanks for clan wars?

I haven't been seeing it, but then the Chinese were only out about a week or so before clan wars was shut down I think. It's currently shut down while we await the new maps or territories for clan wars... and then for the first American territory battles we're all using tier 3 tanks by the looks of it.

I'll report back if things change. Supposedly the Chinese mediums should have a higher Alpha damage shot if I understand them correctly... so that may be one point in their favor?

Across quite a few clans, though, the trend is still the Russian T-62 as the primary medium unless, or in addition to, Bat Chats being desired. Even the new clan I'm probably joining only will use one M-48 Patton, if that, for its view range capabilities. So... not a tank I really want just yet.

Nevermind, I'm sucking again.

That gets traded for inferior DPM and maneuverability. Which surprises me. So far, all the Chinese tanks I've seen in pubs have failed to impress...

I still haven't had to fight a T10 Brit medium. Those things look incredibly maneuverable, at least on paper.

Good to know - I'm at or near tier 9 on all three of those trees.

Most of the time I take too much damage though, I'm trying to wean myself off of it.

You have to pick your opportunities.....only ram tanks smaller than yours. Yes, this is the one time in life where it is permissible to pick on the little kids.

Controlled Impact for the driver and spall liner. Look for tanks with 30% or less health too. Or, if your on a bridge and can drop on someone, that makes for non-stop giggling. Even if you die in the process.

I tried to ram a T50 in the SU26. I guess I didn't build up enough speed. Also with the nerf, I can't depress the gun enough to give them an in-your-face-shot anymore. The SU26 is kinda sucking now.

The M40/43 is still pretty good. 2 battles last night and I got the most kills on my team. 2
