M16 vs Lorraine 40t.

Normally the M16 would be dead in short order, except the 40t missed on his first shot.

My M16 didn't - and did over 1200 pts of damage, which gave me a 1-shotted 40t.

I went blue today... couldn't handle the smart-ass that refused to help anyone, refused to move up, but kept calling me "yedi master" when I asked for help. I was the top tank mid-way across the map, the six remaining team members were on the rear-most border behind our base, and it was time to move up to clean up and/or cap. I refused to win it after all I had been through (hit over 40 times, still living somehow, 3 kills, etc.), so I went backward and just started shooting the guy instead of winning it for them. Eventually some got the clue that I wasn't going to go forward to cap or clean up and two of them went up and capped... but not before I took out the schmuck who was waiting for me to win it for him.

When I log in to my garage my name is blue, but no-one has said I'm blue in games.

Maybe it's a warning

They may fix it, but my bet is that if what is said is true - that it is a memory issue on the user's side - then I'm guessing they won't. If WoT integrates with the aircraft or ships version, the programming levels and levels of detail are only going to get more complex. Dragon Ridge may only do it because of the numerous things you see on that map from nearly every angle, and it's all drawn well.

Have you set all your WoT video settings as low as they will go?

The odd thing is it is ONLY with this one map....play great till this map comes up and sure enough red screen. Don't think it is a memory issue, got a good video card and plenty of ram....and yes I have played with the settings, but I can't help it is something to do with that map.

I've never had this red-screen issue you speak of.

Me either, but I've been in several games where someone reported it.
