    I was on and off yesterday. Busy day fixing bikes.cars/vans/boats. Mostly running the Stug, PzIV, and the Su26. I like the PzIV for sniping, you don't realize how slow that turret turns until you get into one of those knife fight type matches.

    Man, I like playing that tank sometimes, but I barely broke even in that match.

    Alright I'm going to say that my win ratio (in my T34H) is not indicative of.. anything. Yesterday I was basically 1 for1, no matter how well or crappy I did. There's not really a middle ground, It seems i'll either open a can of whoopass on the enemy team and we lose anyway, or i'll get raped wtithin the first minute of the game by 5 other tanks and an S-51 and we win. And anything in between.

    Theres a lot of maps where its tough to hide that hull :/

    I've been having a hell of a bad run in my Patton lately.
    I my win ratio in it dropped a couple % just this weekend.

    I'm hoping that the good 105mm will change things when I get it in another 20k exp.
    It a slow grind when you don't win though.

    I've been playing the Su-26 more. That little guy does pretty good. Pays way more then the Priest.

    Last night I was reading about the Battle of Tunisia and the role of artillery there. Good reading.

    Pretty funny. Sometimes I hit a team mate and I always type in sorry...or you zipped in front of me...or something to that effect. The only time I have shot a team member is when they are rolling around killing people. I had one guy telling the other team where our guys had setup. That person I did report....and by the number of people typing in reported I guess that I was not the only one....he is the only guy I ever reported and I had to ask how to do it.

    I get pretty worked up about the game (see my arty rants) but I really don't have a problem with people as long as they play the game right. I may toss in an ass hole, or fucker in there from time to time, and I love to belittle arty....but I think that is just getting a little too into the game.

    But this brings up a question I have never gotten a clear answer on.....are blue guys fair game.....I don't shoot even blue guys unless (I) see them being stupid.

    you won't get penalized for attacking them if that's what you mean.

    I TK's a Patton the other night with my M12, he was low on health and I let one fly at at a T34 and it went over the top of him. My splash damage killed the Patton. I apologized right away. I didn't turn blue. The very next game in my M12, I was unsuccessfully trying to dodge a T50 after damaging him to 7 hp. He goot right into me and styarted shooting, the Priest on my team took a shot, killed me and the T50. Meh, it happens.

    I've done it on accident a couple times, but never shot anyone on purpose. even blue guys. They might have done something stupid, but they are still an asset until they do 2 stupid things in a row.

    I have only ever shot a team mate in two games. one was a team killer I was the 3ed he was going for, and the second one shot me as soon as we started rolling, I let that go but the next shot into my side i rotated and put a round into his face. then he shot me again. i then turned into his path and killed the fucker. But as soon as he died i posted to the team what had transpired and there where 3 other tanks there that saw it. nothing was said other then him bitching.:1drink

    an I take that back i have shot a few more when they come rolling into view when I'm zoomed and there timing is bad as they roll in right as i fire. i do say sorry for those tho.:lol3

    Great response Smithy.
    That's got to be nicest way to say "STFU n00b" I've ever seen.
