So now I'm curious how it worked out that way, in case I ever have to answer for it again. I don't mind the amusement of people claiming a cheat against good play, but in this case, I'd be suspicious if I were in his shoes. What gives, I wonder?
Maybe WoT was just making up for how overpowered he type is?

Terrible night so far. Got a platoon spot open is anyone wants to try to turn it around.

I don't have an answer.

Are you sure he damaged you?

I believe that even something as small as the use of an HE shell against a capper to hurt a module or a crew member will still reset the cap for your tank.

If you already had two guys capping, and you and a fourth guy rolled on to the cap at the same time to make the 3rd cap... I'm not sure how that would count a hit to one of you.

Did you end up with cap points for that game?

Yeah, I got Invader. He hit me twice, and I recall taking a little damage, but it was very late on the clock. Perhaps "server time" considered it a done deal. Dunno.

I'll look for you next time I'm playing; I love clubbing seals with my T18
This is why we refer to it as punching people in the face, ofcourse most of us that run a well decked out crew in a T18 also run gold rounds depending on the situation which help with that.

Tonight I had a nice grind with Smithy and Noobie, they were a big help in me getting the turret on the IS-3.

I have noticed myself putting it at an angle like the IS, KV-1S, and KV-1... I guess I need to retrain myself for the pike tank.

now on to the 44k xp grind for the BL-9 so I can get my arse handed to me with tier 10's.

Oh, by the way when I popped into the TS for my clan, the clan leader asked me if I had gotten lost (in one of our games tonight apparently one of us killed him, so he noticed that I had been platooning with FYYFF, he wanted to give you both props for how you handle yourselves on the battle field.). He was not mad or complaining, but he had noticed that I had been absent from their TS the last few days and when I explained to him what was going on he understood.

Best compliment I think I've ever had. Thanks for posting that up.

Above the tracks, IS3 has 90mm of spaced armor over 30mm of space armor. IIRC, autoaim from the side points straight at that spaced armor, and will report as penetrating but non-damaging hits.

Any thoughts on whether the T110E3 is worth the EXP and coin to pursue?
Is it worth the time and effort over the T95?
