NICE! You'll love it i think. The derp is fantastic when you're in tier 8 battles. But once you're in a tier 10, you're gonna want the 128mm.

did they buff the water effects in this update? Was tooling through the water and there was a proper wake with reflection waves as the wake hit stuff. Looked AMAZING!

1) Wife and kids are out of town for 2 nights. Annual retreat to Ocean City for off-season frivolity, the likes of which I can't stand. Sharing a room with her female friend and kid anyway, so it's a "no man zone."

2) Rum is replenished, limes are squeezed, and ice is cold.



Bring it.

They did.. both the water and the atmosphere (although stills don't do the water justice because you can't see the shimmer/motion).

I decided to try the Lowe since the buff and see if it is any less insufferable.
Matchmaker thought I would look good in Tier 10 war

Kinda felt like I brought a bb-gun to a shot gun fight but managed to hang on by the skin of my teeth. Our Waffle Traktor was using me as a meat shield

...but you get rewarded for being the runt

The T95's fun, and the T110E3 - which comes after the T95 - has been an absolute hoot.

All I know is that I gave up on the German arty at tier 9 one or two patches ago.

And that I haven't seen any signs of nerfing arty in the lower American line (which, thus far, is the line I chose to chase after already being at tier 9 Soviet and German arty, but then deciding they get nerfed too hard).

Speaking of which, thanks to ALL you guys - especially the guys who put up with being lowly Scouts! - in our Company battles tonight.

Arty wasn't nerfed there - over 63% hit rate:

The Company battles were fun tonight, we actually started winning once we convinced our caller to let us bring TOG's... I don't know who was more confused with the strat, us or the OPFOR, but it worked fairly well. Unfortunately just the sight of the togs gives away the turtle strat, but at least the KV-2 can't just go to town Derping.

I am sorry however, I can only take so much of those Company battles, I don't quite know what it is but even on a win streak it drives me nuts after more than an hour.

I forgot to try and get more screenshots, something to do with trying to carry my weight. But I did get this one... the Opfor comment pretty much sez it all...

And they lost

FWIW a VIC can frontal pen a Hellcat. Just not enough to kill it

I wonder.... Can a T7 car pen the Hellcat the same way? I smell a training room coming on...
