Is this a new change? I thought it was pretty typical for the 'sell' price to be half of the cost to buy, and that waiting until after a sale you could essentially sell it back for what you paid.

Perhaps those days are done?

I'm in on teamspeak, not sure what to do once I'm in.

I'm on now, playing a bit until wife gets home and yells at me.

as for the TS usage, if you see someone else in there pop into the room they are in and say hi, maybe they will platoon up with you for a few rounds.

(and add about a million to that)


Game started out with shit talk about premium tanks, spending money, etc. Of course the premium tank guys were talking shit about how big and bad they were. Running the tier 5 Chaffee and something told me NOT to suiscout. Got a kill early on. Got to the cap and the last tank alive was a 15000 gold premium tank....a tier 8 LOWE (that if I figure it right, thats a $50 tank). So from the cap and being the only one in the cap, I capped the lowe and laughed and laughed and laughed. AND this was my 2x game.

Yeah dude, you just got killed by a free to play light scout tank 3 tiers below you?

yeah, that thing does just a small amount of damage, but it reloads very quickly and is accurate enough to hit the hatch on top of a AT-15 at 300 meters. it is actually quite amazing.

I had no trouble dispatching one with my T-34. . The 57mm ZiS is a great gun, I'm finally getting the hang of that tank, much different than the M4 Sherman in how it is played.

I was teamed up with a KV4 for that battle. He would poke out, take a shot, take a hit and I would poke out and shoot like 3 times

I was surprised how agile it was too. It's like a super Stug3.

I also tried that huge Brit arty, only one game though. Woefully inaccurate, but you can put the pipper in a circle of 3 tanks and take 300 hp off each one.

Is it normal to have complete retards from all over the world on the test server? I felt like superman playing there, I had to go back to the East server for a bit to get a dose of reality.

Some fun tanking this morning, rare Tier 3-5 battle in the T-34. Happened to be on my x3, so I pulled in some huge XP. That much closer to the 85...
