10 days seems weird. The game originally launched on April 12, 2011. If there was a major event planned, I'd have thought it would be for the 2nd anniversary.

I went about loading screen shots last night. This is how you roll a tier 5 match

The ping is 115-150. It's a little laggy, but not awful. So far I seem to be the kiss of death for all of my teams, but I'm still figuring things out in tier 1.

so in the couple weeks that I have had the XVM up, the WN6 ( think) efficiency has never changed. not even a little. am I that consistent (sucky) or is it a fluke?

More like busy handing out damage to me and not serving my teams. Started the day 0/5 in one of the tanks I'm grinding. Then the kids came home from school on yon other coast and it felt like I added about fifteen cats to my ignore list. Hopefully this evening goes better. Though I did have a fantastic round in my T21 in a T9 match: dealt 1,543 damage and got 540 upon detecting. Maybe things are starting to click between the seat and the keyboard when the T21 is on screen.

Sprinter's fridge is loaded with beer. 500xcw is loaded on the trailer. I'm off to the Utah desert for 4 days; camping west of Arches. Forecast is 75 degrees.

Happy Tanking!

psssst.. turn off the computer and go outside




Sam: what an awesome round!

You've got over 4000 battles, so the change can be a little slow (it's REALLY slower with 14k battles, lol). That page shows you having mostly an above 1000 experience average as of late (and a better win ratio)... so you're getting better!

It takes a LOT of games to change depending on how many games you have played.

My efficiency is listed as 1254 even though my efficiency for the past week has been 1624, past month has been 1539, and past 60 days has been 1462.

Especially if you only play one account and your stats are handicapped by your learning period.

Agree.

The best way would seem to be, sadly, to learn tactics and the game on one account (but spend as little money on it as possible), then to create a new account and use that one to buy premium subscriptions and premium tanks for.

Wish I had known that earlier. The benefit, if there is one, is that a 53% win ratio gets discounted as not being that big of a target... and it bites a lot of OPFOR in the ass.

Yeah....I ran my 122-44 in a match this afternoon. A T-20 ignored me to chase the PzIV S in front of me.



That was a mistake on his part.
