Not a single one of those in my garage. Guess I'll blow them up with arty.

80% payout on the Cromwell? I like playing that one! I suck at it, but I like playing it. Vents, rammer and spall liner. Hits 75kmph on level ground and can chase down T-50-2's and ELC's Then dies horribly

Stop caring. Just shoot things. Play like an ass, it works for me

Exactly! I got invited to Company Battle with some very serious people from a very serious landowning clan and said no. I don't need the mental stress. A buddy I was platooned with said yes and came back three battles later, done with the stress.

I drive, shoot, repeat. I like the variety possible in pub matches. I have 18 some odd tanks and can jump as I please rather than being berated for bringing the wrong tank.

I am not trying to put down anybody who takes the game seriously. Lord knows some days I myself take it seriously. But some days it's just for with some buddies. And I, personally, remember those days better than the days, despite the alcoholag of my tanking. The game has places for both serious and fun, and yesterday I was right where I wanted to be: drinking and pub platooning with some buddies. Tomorrow, maybe I'll drop into a company battle with them. I do have a hellcat. Who knows.

I earned(?) a new achievement.
Lucky: Witness an enemy vehicle being shot and destroyed by another enemy team player
Must be <10 meters away from the enemy vehicle at the time of its destruction.

I had not heard of that one before.

It's a good one. Better chances of getting it if you can draw the agro of a tank 100m or so away, and then hide behind one of his living team-mates, preferably a non-turreted TD or Arty.

Last night I, in a 12hp AMX 12t, sped down a hill away from the enemy, not realizing I was speeding between an E100 and IS8. They both shot at me and the IS8 hit the E100, while the E100 just missed the IS8. I was laughing so hard over TS. Neither was killed, but I have a new strategy to attempt in my ELC.

LOL, maddy brings the pain! 7 kills (was 1/10 of a second off of my 8th) in 3:37 game. It was so bad the guys on my team were saying "save some for us"

That is a good one, I have gotten them before, and given them, but they are not very common. I found it is best to face hug the enemy in a well armored tank when you know that an arty round is coming in, most arty are selfish enough to chance the shot and hit their own guy. yes, needless dickery that is so much fun.

I took my own advice last night. Drive, charge, shoot. My efficiency tanked, but I went 5-2.

Best was an asssault, I forget the map, backed a Tiger into a corner with the 4502p got dead from the IS shoooting my rear. Apparently, a Tiger doesn't have enough oomph to push a dead 4502 out of the way

Lakeville, starting north. Head down the lake road in the T28 with a Type 59 shooting over me and giving me a push. Stalled battles both valley and town. We killed a T54 and a T69 on the way through. Started to cap and the guys in town decided to come back showing our guys their back sides. Ended up less that 10% health and a win.
