I hate effing upgrade nights.....all the once every 2 months lemmings show up and ruin every match. I couldn't get a good win tonight to save my life because of stupid play.

How does one go about reporting a player?

I was in my MS-1, right from the start of random battle a Tetrarck player bump and grind against me without HP damage.

I went along my way along my side of map, the Tetrarck player repeately stops in front of my path to block my movements.

I move around him, then he catches up and gets in front of me again.

I stopped moving, thought he would move away, but for good 10 seconds he just sits in front of my tank.

I turn left, he moves ahead; I turn right, he backs up to block my movement.

Took me a good 5, 6 tries to get away from him and behind a building in Province Map, from SouthWest side start to Northwest corner behind a building.

How does one go about reporting that kind of foul play to get in the way of a slower moving ally vehicle?

Shoot his ass and deny him the xp he'd otherwise get. You may suffer a minor loss, but at least you can get your game on.

Ok, I'm officially pissed with the upgrade. My KV and KV3 were "elite", which meant I could use them to grind xp to convert with gold. Not anymore, and the amount of xp to get that status back is daunting... 78k xp needed on the KV3 to get that back. Fuckin' hell, man. Not to mention the wasted effort to grind my IS from the KV3 in the first place, and now it's weaker? I feel screwed by this.

You have alot of patience, I apperantly have none.

I have shot team mates for much less, and would do it again.

1 TK will not get you banned. What he was doing is called "griefing", hes just being a dick. Nobody on your team will give you shit for that... just tell them your gonna tk this guy for griefing. If nobody sees what he's doing, worst case you get tk'd... atleast he gets nothing for the battle.

Cat, to report a player for greifing, etc.......Crtl-Right click on the players name in the list on the upper right of the screen. That brings up a menu. Select "Complaints", and then the specific complaint.

I got to play the new map last night a couple times. Once in the M26, once in the E8. When I tried to get into sniper mode with the E8, the screen would go completely red. No nothing, just a red screen. Back out of sniper mode, I can see everything normally. Weird. It wasn't like that on any other map, and it wasn't like that with the M26.

I one-shotted an M36 in the Priest last night too, boy was he pissed! He spent the rest of the game calling me all sorts of asterisks Went on to get 5 kills and 3 damages that round.

So.... KV1 sucks. KV2 is fun. KV3 still sucks. Haven't played the T150 yet.

Is this the correct "Menu"? no "Complaints" tab?

Grrrrr...
Right about when all the riff-raff quit playing and the battles started getting good again, my internet went down.
Didn't even get my 5x for everything.

You have to do it within the battle....once it's over, you can't complain.

Who's got time to complain during battle?

Pretty easy to have time when you're playing arty or heavy tank and have a 15+ second reload......

I never could figure out how the guys driving the T-50-2's driving at Mach .75 have time to type in the chat. I can barely get 2 or 3 words in before a catch a shell
