    well 45 minutes into work this morning the 12lbs sledge hammer I was using to drive 1 inch stakes in the ground glanced off one of them as I was getting it started in the ground before I could really hit it and well the next thing to hit the stake was my index finger that was now between the sledge handle and the stake. (CRACK!!!):eek1:huh &*^#%*@(#^ that hurt, sick feeling, I think i might have broke it. so I call my boss who is just around the corner at the church we have a funeral at this morning and tell him i think I broke my finger I don't want to pull my glove off and look because it's hurting bad enough to make me queasy already, so he comes over and pulls my glove off and it doesn't look that bad but I cant curl it all the way. so i pull my glove back on and tell him I'll finish the setup and see how it feels when I'm done. after putting a little pressure on it a few times and getting that sharp pain I know it's broke.

    so i get done and head to the Doc with this.

    I'd say that you better learn to play left handed, but then you would have to use that finger for the "go" button.....

    I got in on the alpha too. I haven't played in a while though because it was taking too long to get into a match. Looks like I'll have to fire it up again if thay added another batch of testers.

    I tried that earlier this year when I broke my right wrist. Arty will keep you playing. Don't bother trying to scout with anything.

    I spent a lot of time honing my sniping skills. Use a Stug:deal

    you could use a laptop with mousepad. which sucks but usually works. if you discount random misfires when moving the curser :huh

    just got this

    [​IMG]

    eh. that's too small. anyway. Grille, 5 kills, 2 kills of tanks in the cap zone.
    I'm actually pissed I only got 1600xp, especially at x2 :huh

    it beats my previous personal best of 4 kills in the the Churchill

    Jeez, the grind for the M24, T50-2 are soooo long. Getting close to the M18. The Mrs. is very happy with the churchill and M2LT. Going to buy her a M22 so we can do some his and her scouting methinks. She's a complete noob but I'm thrilled to death I can play WOT with my wife.


    If you guys ever get lucky enough to get your spouse to try WOT, give em' a churchill to start off with, a great slow learner tank that can take some punishment and ease them into the whole turret view while moving gig we all take for granted.:clap

    That's when premium tanks with better credit earning capabilities comes in to help, you can even transfer regular crews to premium tanks without performance penalty.

    I used the tier 4 premium French spg alot while grinding my way up to the tier 8, Bat Chat 155, by the time I researched and bought the BatChat 155, not only I had 6M credit extra saved up, my crew was at 320% trained (100% plus 2 skills at 100% and 3rd at 20%).

    Damn nice score Smithy......:clap




    So, are we placing bets as to how long the upgrade insanity level of play is going to last this time around? :ear Personally, I expect to have a lot of T-50 and VK 2801 target practice for the next week.
