Type 62: trigger pulled. Paint applied. Consumables and equipment loaded. Crew trained.

0-2 so far.

Still making money, though.

a lot of days i can relate. today though 11/14 I think. only 5k xp away from the IS-4, and 20k xp away from the TE110E4. About about 9 million silver for the two

I really dig the ST-I, it uses the Tier X gun. Is it worth the expense of the IS 4? The ST-I is a good tank for me with over 50% wins (not by much).

We were just in a round where the lemmings were trying to guess what FYYFF stood for.

I think the best guess was:

F'ing your young french friend

numerous times I have been in battles where someone at the end was saying let so n so get top gun. You know what? Fuck that. Of the top guns I have gotten not once did I beg for a kill.

I was just told I was an asshole and unsportsmanlike because I killed a Tiger instead of letting another tank come over and kill it. Ridiculous.

I accidentally dropped a grill round short once to kill a tank with 5 kills in a steam roll when he was doing that.

sent from my abacus.

Needless Dickery, home team, penalties are negated. Repeat 3rd down.

Question for you all.
How much will you put yourself at risk to help a disabled team mate?

One of my last matches I was in a medium when a light on my side got tracked by a heavy. I started backing away, shooting and damaging the heavy, thinking I was dead meat. The heavy killed the light before I could kill him.

I forget how the match ended, but I do remember the light driver was not happy. He felt that I let him die, despite that fact that just prior to this he apparently saved me from the same fate.

Other than jumping between he and the heavy I don't know what else I could do. Sacrificing my tank like that would not have helped the team at all.

I didn't respond to the light driver, the match was over before I understood what he thought had happened.

In a light vs heavy there is nothing you can do, backing away while returning fire seems perfectly acceptable to me. Both of you dead is worse than one of you dead.


And overall, it seems to be a fail weekend. Some tanks I cant seem to win no matter what I do....
