I fucking hate that expression.

Too many don't support any flank, anywhere on the map, watch their teammates die, then use that expression.

My guess is that it's usually the same guys who are also stats deniers. Not sure in your case, but holy christ is the stupidity getting old.

Nice. This is still a tank I want, but since I don't want the E-100-based TD I am waiting.

Where did you position yourself on Redshire for this?

Top of the ridge in the SE side. Fire a shot then back down a little. The last two kills, I was on the back side of the hill facing cap when they popped out of the village at the bottom one at a time.

Always good to see some real-life pictures in the WoT thread! (especially since I have no life away from work now)

Here ya go Dave.. something different from the real world:

A buddy and I have been peddling our arses off. This is my 2013 Yeti SB95 Carbon Race.
I got lucky (I know someone at Yeti) and got the first one in the country











How does this relate to you?

My buddy that I mountain bike with sells Toyotas for a living.
He works 23450282058 hours/week.
He can never have 2 days off in a row; which sucks because we want to go to Crested Butte and do some ski-lift downhill and we can't because of his j.o.b.

you need to plan your trip there to happen during the beer and chilli fest... It had been a very long time since I was that drunk and good lord the gas power I had for a while afterwards...

Crested Butte is only a few hours away.. we go several time a year (I just won't be with Casey )
We usually camp up on Pearl Pass a few miles east of town:


Cheryl and I will be down there again for a few days the week of the 21st of this month

I've not heard of that particular festival; I'll have to check it out!
Thanks!



er.. and in tanker news.. I decided to see what it is like to drive a rolling pillbox around.

AT2 with a derp gun.

First round killed 5 and got steel wall.
Kinda fun but damn you could fall asleep driving to the battle

Here is the link: http://www.skicb.com/cbmr/info/thing...fall-fest.aspx

Although I would suggest camping maybe a little closer for that one, pearl pass is beautiful, but the drive after the booze might be a little.

That sounds like a hoot! Otis Taylor playing and:

Gravity Slave Chainless Downhill Race


3 Runs in the Evolution Bike Park
Lowest Cumulative Time Wins
Use Same Bike for All Runs
8:00-9:00 Registration
9:00-10:45 Practice
11:00-1:00 Racing
$40 Fee, Includes Registration, Lift Ticket and Full Admission to Festival

I'm willing to bet the SB95 (being a full suspension 29'er) would have a pretty good chance in the chainless gravity race

Oh my God. And to think I was considering spending XP on something else and postponing the 268... not anymore. Focus, man, focus.
