No, it's not just you.

I still like my E8. It doesn't make money like it used to, but it's still fun to play.

Got in a battle where the other team had 3 Maus, an IS7, and a T95 as thier top 5. We had a Maus, 2 M110's and an IS something. I had my M26 and just did hit n run without being aggressive. Good teamwork gave us the win and 13k credits and no $$ in repair! The M26 is a pricey tank to play. It's even more expensive when you do stupid crap

I got teamspeak installed and working last night. I can hear people talk but can't talk back yet. What's they overlay thing?

It overlays a list people on your channel in game. that way you can see who is talking. Nor required, but I find it very handy.

I caught a cluesless one last weekend on the hill on Malinoka. He thought it was a good idea to cross out in the open between town and the lake and stop to shoot at our guys up on the top of the hill, which gave me a perfect side shot. The 107 on my SU-85 opened the side of his tank like a can opener. I played my Lee like it was a TD and breezed through the research tree.

Did the game update today? Do you get to pick modes, or is it random?

Odd. It seems that the talk app doesn't talk to the game...
Overlay doesn't open, PTT button doesn't work, couldn't hear other players.

We can sort things out next time we are on at the same time.

There are actually two new battle types, Encounter and Assault. Both have only one cap on the map. Assault is exactly what it sounds like....10 minute time limit match, one team attacks, one team defends. Capture/defend the flag or kill all the opposition tanks to win. Encounter is a 15 minute time limit, king of the hill match. Both teams are on offense, capture the flag or kill the other team to win. From what I've heard, battle type will be random, just like the map selection.


I expect things will be chaotic for the next couple of weeks as people figure out these new modes.

Pretty sure it is just you. I'm right at 50% hit rate on S-51. If you count splash, it is more like 80%.

Most of my arty "hits" are splash damage, I'd surmise that it's a coin-toss whether I'll actually hit something directly or not anymore.

I've noticed that being on level ground seems to make a difference.
And yes, the shell landing in the circle of death seems to be kindof random.

I've gotten a few kills by watching for shot traces. That must be pretty annoying to be well hidden and then suddenly die...

I love shooting at tracers and getting that arty that thought he was smart. Been called a hacker a couple of times by noobs that didn't realize the tracer from the shot they just fired pointed right back at them.

My priest got hunted really well twice last night. Even after I relocated, one shot from me and it was all over. Good counter-artillery is a powerful force.
