Here's a screen shot of where I put the XVM hit counter we talked about yesterday:

Ed, what coordinates did you use for that placement?

May I present Natasha.

She's officially the ugliest tank I (currently) own.



I just unlocked the Tier 8 gun for her - next unlock is the Tier 10 gun. Need to grind out 62K xp for it.

GREAT weekend to unlock her - with the 50% crew training I went through all of my tanks and re-balanced crews for where I'm at and where I'm headed. Now I need to turn on Accelerated Crew training and get her lower crew members caught up taking advantage of the x3 crew this weekend.

She's already got 6th sense and clutch braking at 100%.

Hey Bri,

I'm not sure if the fact I'm at a different resolution or not makes a difference but for that location I have it coded:

"hitLog": {
"enabled": true, // on/off switch
"x": -270, // X position (negative values - bind to right side of screen)
"y": 500, // Y position (negative values - bind to bottom side of screen)
"w": 500, // Width
"h": 1000, // Height
"lines": 15, // Number of lines. Old lines will be pushed out


Obviously there is no reason to go above 15 lines of results as each tank's hits are on one line only (unless you kill everyone on there team AND someone on yours )


p.s. thanks again for all your help grinding yesterday

Dave: I'm using some of the techniques I watched you use with this thing yesterday.

3379 damage (but more importantly saved/reset a cap with 1 second remaining

It was a loss, but I just did 4175 damage with 3 kills using my ST1 last man standing, still net 20k silver and 800+ xp.

might be my biggest damage game.

At the rate Ed and I are learning our tier 7 SU-122-44's, I'm thinking one of us is gonna beat 4175 damage in a game eventually.

There's no doubt that a +4000 damage game in a tier 9 is serious work, and a great job, but I'm betting you'll get a 5000 and maybe even a 6000 damage game with the ST-I eventually... it's THAT GOOD of a tank.

Was on a team with a T30 last night and watched him one-shot an IS-8. It was sweet, IS-8 was soo pissed. BOOM goes the 155.

Smurf - IMANOOBY said he talked to you about joining up? He's a bud of mine and has an ADVrider account but doesn't get on much.

Yep, I told him to jump on and put in a clan application and I'd approve him. He plays pretty well.

Edit: I just sent him a clan recruitment. I couldn't remember his full username.

Had a good night tonight. The SU-122-44 got placed in a tier 9 battle where each side had three tier 9's.

The 122-44 out-damaged EVERY tier nine, as well as every other tank in that game. 3,458 damage meant that the closest damager on my team, a T-34 with 2,316 damage (the second-place XP T-44 had less damage and nearly no spotting points... but got good XP somehow), did less than 1000 damage in comparison. The top damaging tier nine on our team, a Patton, did 2,173.

The enemy's top damaging and top scoring tank, an IS-8 which is a tier 9, did 2,306 damage.



Oh, yeah... and if you think I was holding back and getting lucky in a TD from a snipe-spot... My buddy in the other 122-44 and I charged the center hill at the beginning of a Mines battle and fought the T-54 and a Type 59 medium up there to take it. After killing the Type 59 the T-54 ran off of our tier-7 hill, lol. Their team was better than our team in stats, and the HAVOK Type 59 I killed on the top of the hill is the Commander of HAVOK(!) He and that T-54 both had good stats, so I knew we'd be up there with them. But two super aggressive TD players aren't usually expected. No one expects the Spanish Inquisition.




...

Later in the game, luckily, the E-75 turned his side to me after a crap shot I had on him.



I think it was just the opposing teams who were bad tonight - which is a welcome change from being on the crappy teams. I did well in the T34 as well:



I guess the game was good to me tonight. But somebody, somewhere, is going to nerf my SU-122-44... I just know it. Again I didn't use a Gold round all night in the 122-44, and it did its job admirably.

Dave.. I'm glad it was good to you to you; the matchmaker was a cold hearted bitch for me all day today

random example:

btw.. putting the "derp" gun on the ISU is a hoot.


I finally figured out how to deal with a Type 59 - I one-shotted two of them last round with the Tier 6 derp gun on the Tier 8 (2nd defeat graphic above)

Pulled the trigger 4 times and did 1824 damage.
This is a Tier 6 gun?




p.s. the TRACKS should be the first upgrade on the ISU-152. Changes the tank from a slow pig to fun to play

Well, today I had some good battles, and some bad... it seems that the good ones are almost always platoon battles. I did have a moment there where I was going to take a shot on a KV-3 and he had dissapeared... I started wondering around trying to find him to put him out of my missery when Smurf informed me that the KV-3 was no longer...

I did spend 500k on 2 pieces of equipment today though, and yesterday I bought another 2.... Add on top of that the IS that I bought... I didn't know that my tanks could earn coin like that!

I have gotten alot of questions of late in Teamspeak wondering what I do as I work a random schedule that has me working graveyards and swing shifts. I sure wish that I had a monitor setup like this at home, but I do at work and it REQUIRES the ability to multi task. I am a Public Safety Dispatcher (Police, Fire, EMS, Search and Rescue, and Flight Following) for 4 National parks totaling over 2,000,000 acres of land and water, we also Dispatch for 4 State Agencies, and all of this is in 2 different states.



Yes all the screens work, they are just turned off for security reasons with the picture. The desks to adjust in height enough to work from the chairs or for me to stand up (I am 6'8" tall).


Sometimes it is a dangerous job and proper PPE is required.



Now maybe some of you who I have platooned with will understand why sometimes I just disengauge my brain and try to blow stuff up, this is a very good outlet for me to get out my aggressions that I don't normally show, and my wife complains when I start beating metal into submisson on my anvil in the garage.
