So I've had a few rounds in my OBJ 268 where I've done over 6000 damage...
I never thought I'd see the day when I'd top that with a light tank's spotting damage

I hid in the bush and kept saying "These aren't the droids tank you're looking for"

First place with a Tier 7 light in a Tier 9 battle

Guys...the x5's come online at 0430 PDT on Friday......specials don't follow the normal reset schedule. Still, don't use up your x2's tomorrow night after your normal reset time (8pm EDT for me).

so being eastern as you, if I play after 8pm, but before 430 am, I dont get a x5 bonus for the day and only get a x2 as normal? That sounds like a crap deal to me and with only three more games per vehicle will even out. I mean, come on...not playing for a night?

If I have 30 tanks... and I play 1 game with each (to get the multiplyer)

playing x2's = 60 games worth of results.
playing x5's = 150 games worth of results.

90 extra games worth of experience for the same 30 games played? =SIGNIFICANT to me.

...over a 4 day weekend that's 360 games worth of time saved.... say 10 minutes per game - 3600 minutes = 60 HOURS of game time saved!

ymmv



p.s. this is the same logic I use with my Mrs. when explaining to her why it is SOOOOO important that I play "just one game with each tank!" - "by doing so I'm saving 60 HOURS of time I could spend with YOU honey!"

I know my wife would not believe a word of it, but then again she is much smarter than I am.

Yes she was looking over my shoulder as I typed the above.

World's craziest griefer. He got in my way at game start several times.... So I pushed him to where I wanted to be in his much faster tank. It took a couple minutes with him on the brakes. That got old so I shot him once in the turret. Then he charged the enemy, got killed, and chatted to all that I killed him and they should report me. If that wasn't enough, he chatted the following to me out of the match...

Sounds like he needs a VA consult.

Can't do that when the front boob is hidden behind cover, and R2D2 is all that's showing.
