It is hilarious untill a Hetzer one shots you with a gold round, then you are cussing.



That is untill the HEAT nerf with the patch next week.

I always liked to explode them with the Priest.

That HEAT nerf will be welcome for me. It's just dumb. Also, after playing lots of TDs and arty, it's nice to get mucho XP per round for big damage. I hope my M41 isn't so nerfed I can't load up big XP games with damage.

From playing a few arty on the test server, one of the things I have noticed is that if you can zone in on a location and they are dumb enough to still be there when you have aimed in you can roast them, if they move then good luck following or leading them properly without your aim circle going bonkers... atleast that is my observation without playing much on that server, and may be subject to change when I can play them more after the patch drops.

I can't believe haw early taper off here. 1:30 and everything is shut down.

Good meeting you Dave, hope I didn't leave too bad of an impression. Boomer pretty much nailed it though.

Bummer about the biker. Hearing that really saddens me.

WoWP loaded into the laptop, but I haven't tried it yet. I need to get a joystick first.

Sam, only bike that ever fit me comfortably was a KLR. I just try to make anything else work.

Hey Brett!

Man there is no doubt you guys are closer to being pro-partiers than I am, but i hope you forgive my lack of drinking harder... having worked both jobs that day, then being stuck there 2 hours after closing with a crazy woman I didn't even get to tell you about (but meant to) just drained me a bit. Not sure how many beers I drank before riding home, but yeah...

Actually, I had some crazed testosterone/alcohol-fueled idiots in a car behind me trying to run me down (right on my ass) from Atlantic and on to I-95 there. While homicidal, this is actually far more common behavior for down here than many from other areas would believe, and it's why i really don't enjoy riding at any time after most people have been drinking in south Florida. So coming up to that scene, with a killer-car I had by that time gained some distance away from, but who was passing the lines of cars funneling in to the accient scene, probably saved my ass from the same fate as that rider. I popped in to the traffic flow before it cut down to one lane, and the crazed driver couldn't follow. (Look, I don't kow how crazed they are, the truth is that most here in south Florida don't think much past their own face, so the repercussions of killing a biker isn't even on their radar when they're fucking with a guy on a bike).

I'd lay money on that dead biker being taken out by a car, even if he had been drinking. I-95 is a death highway if I've ever seen one, and I used to travel that highway for 400 miles a week. Never seen anything like the carnage on it, per mile, and am surprised it never makes the news for being so dangerous.

Edit: nope, I was wrong ( I guess) - this is what I saw:
DELRAY BEACH, Fl. - A Pompano Beach man died early this morning while riding his motorcycle on I-95.
The Florida Highway Patrol says that Kleber Peres was traveling southbound in the inside lane near Linton Blvd.
The FHP says that Peres attempted to change lanes in front of another vehicle traveling southbound in the left center lane.
Peres according to investigators lost control of his bike, was ejected and hit the other vehicle.
Peres was pronounced dead on the scene.
Viviane Alves who was riding with Peres suffered minor injuries and was taken to Delray Medical Center.
The driver of the car, Tsai Chen, was not injured according to FHP


Just another drunk biker headed back to Pompano Beach like me

- Storm himself in’t happy with the 0.8.6 sounds. Some sounds will be reworked or moved back to the 0.8.5 version in 0.8.7 (namely the tank being hit and explosion sounds).
- the T-44 will have the sound of shifting gears and various engine RPM sound on various speed implemented, based on real life T-44 sounds
- apparently, the Russian weekend event with double XP/income for top players is VERY popular
- Wargaming’s statistical data on how many people played/play arty won’t be disclosed
- Type 59 won’t be rebalanced (like the Superpershing)
- the fact whether arty gains enough XP per battle in 0.8.6 will be known after 2 weeks or so (when first statistic results come in)
- Storm states that it is not true that the 0.8.6 brought reduced performance (FPS) for a lot of people. In fact, he says it’s the other way around, 0.8.6 increased FPS for a lot of people (SS: including me), if you have lower FPS in 0.8.6, Storm suggests to write a support ticket and ask there. Otherwise the complaints on FPS drops are normal after each patch.
- upcoming patches will bring new game features and optimalisations
- Pz38H (“Micromaus”) had its MM weight reduced
- general light tank rebalance is not planned
- it’s possible destructible sand hills (SS: not sure what exactly is meant here, but I don’t think it’s the terrain dunes, more like small sand terrain features) will be introduced, but not soon
- dynamic amount of complaints per day (SS: the more you play, the more times you can report someone in game) will not be introduced for now

The thing is a beast from the front. It is slow as hell. And you were absolutely right that when your team falls apart, you are screwed.


I did manage to chase down a VK30.01 on port today. Yes, you read that correctly. I chased him. He couldn't pen my frontal armor, and turned tail to run. I floored it and chased him through the city.
Love the 28P almost as much as I like the 28.

Properly placed, a 28P can be devastating.

Well I Rage-Sold the GC last night. I just couldn't take running that POS any longer, it was sucking my soul. It seems faster and is in fact more enjoyable just running up the Brit TD tree. Running a turret-less TD in pub matches is just more than I can stand when that TD is also a slow, thin-skinned, flat-faced, TP tracked shit-box.

Yup, the Churchill. Sorry Dave. If anyone is a glutton for punishment I would recommend you give it a whirl.
