Or maybe I should just nuke the Obj212 crew. Decisions, decisions...
A 75% loader isn't going to hurt the already slow SU-152 load enough. I'd just create one.

That's the answer. For KV-1S, it is pretty huge. For the russian TDs...better to train camo methinks. I'll just recruit a new loader and reset BiA on the rest of the crew.

BTW, check this out. SU-152 recovered from a field in Ukraine.



That gun is terrifying.

That's why I decided to get the KV-1S in the first place. With the sale this weekend, I honestly think I'm going to buy an IS, T-150, and a KV-2 just because I have them all unlocked. It will probably delay my getting my E50 by a week or two, but I can be patient. I should have around 3 million credits after I sell my Panther II. I had been saving those up for the E50 and was only 500k short, but I'll probably be starting off at 0 again after buying those tanks and as much equipment as I can.

Damn, I have a dilemma. I want to use the sale to retrain my Panther II crew for the E50, but that requires me to have an E50 and buying an E50 would mean that I don't have enough silver to buy the other stuff I want.

You can train a crew for any tank you have researched without buying said tank.

Instead of using the "Current Tank" button in the profile, select it from the drop-down. For added awesomeness, then drop said crew in the Premium Pz4 and continue training them while saving creds for the E50.

I've killed multiple tanks in my T28 by shooting hatches that were showing above the rock they were "hiding" behind.

It was a well played game!



And here's a glitch I don't understand - upper right corner:




Problem being, the T-44 doesn't do shots for anywhere near 1400 damage, so it's not like that was my last shot. Not sure what it is though. The same large text stayed there the rest of the game, and initially it was very distracting for some reason.. more-so in terrain where I had to be looking up. I did my best to ignore it.

The t-150 isn't bad once you get it all upgraded and the top gun on there.

Kind of a kv-1 mk2. I wanted to tear my eyeballs out everytime i drove the kv-2.

Ammo rack. It could happen.

BTW, I noticed something while grinding UK last night. There are a ton of 55+% clan folk working their way up the UK medium line right now.

Didn't they disable that 'feature' two patches ago?

I'm thinking they did. I just double-checked, and my SU-122-44 crew is not being given the option of training for the SU-100 I have researched. Now I could be missing it, but I've trained crews that way in the past, and haven't been able to as of late.

You can shoot a round, but you can't alter the place it hits (inaccuracy) nor its penetration, from your computer. I'm not sure what all that leaves to hack, but I guess there's got to be something. Trees can be hacked out, but only from vision - not from the camo effect they have on enemies.

When I say that in my experience it's usually the poorer players who see 'hackers' - I mean that, in my experience, it is poorer players seeing it every time.

I've played with some who I regard as a few of the best in the game, and the two things they never, ever, complain about is hackers or arty. That sorta tells me something.

If and when I percieve hacking, I will leave the game. Thus far nearly everthing that has happened - including 'invisible' tanks shooting at me - I fully understand the mechanics of. I'm quite sure I've been called an 'invisible' tank to shoot people, and I've certainly enabled it via spotting with a scout style tank.
In other words, you're one of the hackers....

I'd expect nothing more from a clan called FYYFF.......

Game mechanic changes:

  • You are no longer able to retrain crewmen to tanks which are researched but are not present in the Garage.
Kinda a dick move on WG's part.
