    WoT sabbatical over. Here's one of mine from last night.....almost 1900 damage, 4 kills, and showing the enemy that it's really stupid to leave the middle totally open.

    Playing solo I've had a few matches where I'm too tier. Platooned with Rafiki we were bottom tier every round.

    It plays like linear arti :lol3

    You shoot someone at the far end of the map and your shell disappears and then drops in like a coconut from orbit 3 seconds later.

    It is like shooting hand grenades with a sling shot :-)

    After playing it some more yesterday, i was purple almost every match. But, I got realllllly good at leading shots. Aim at the ground, fire, tank usually comes right into it :lol3 It's also an XP machine in tier 5 matches. If you make minimum target damage and 1-2 kills, you'll be top 3 in XP :deal

    6. And the Biggest, Best news of all...

    THE WIKI IS BACK!

    Oh, er, wait, well, it's partially back. Or, uhm, at least it's getting updated again so one day it will be useful again. I mean, with 3,000 employees worldwide, you think WG could get somebody to keep the wiki up to date. Oh well, it's back now! Just don't expect perfect.

    Note the wiki moved. It used to be at world of tanks but now it is at wargaming.
    You might also note that of you click on a tank at targetdamage you end up at that tank's wiki :D

    (Only tier 5-10 are done so far)

    That german light looks fun.


    Speaking of fun... I love it when people see a french tank and decide to rush. Then find out that yes, I do have a full reloaded gun with 6 shots. 3557 dmg.

    KV5 was the last tank, and as he tried to "run" he typed out "shit..." in chat. :lol3

    I really like this tank and the Lorraine. But it really needs support or you get hammered during reloads.

    I am working to the Lorraine...it looks like something I will like.

    The 13 90 is fun, and if you get with people that know what it is good for you can have a great time. Had a game with 2 of them and a 131 and we wasted 4 tier 10 tanks by the time we all died...it was a ball. Our bigger med tanks kept people off of us, we waited for our heavy tanks to get there as well for support and they just let us work. Real fun game.

    In general I am really liking the auto loaders. The tier 9 American is really hurting me...I hope it gets better with the good gun.

    It does. You can really deal out some damage with its 4 shots. And the reload isn't bad.

    I have to learn to not be greedy and only take a shot or two before retreating. :lol3
