    Still digging the Patton. Needs a couple more upgrades yet, like the top engine and the 105.

    I really built up my account playing the Stug this weekend. But then I blew it all by buying a Tiger P:lol3 Now I have to learn how to run a heavy tank. It doesn't play the same as the mediums:huh I mounted the 88, big engine, radio and tracks. One more turret to go and the long 88 and it will be fully upgraded.

    I tranferred the PzIV crew and trained to 80%, paid gold to get the commander at 100%

    I sold the PzIV, without the long 75 I just wasn't having any fun with it.

    I'll keep both VK's for now.

    I've been runninga T34 to build up credits - so I finally bought a Patton also. Done the full upgrade now, and it's much nicer than when it started. Not a bad tank at all.

    I've been having some fun with the new physics. You can do some insanelt stupid stuff that really surprises the other team. and BOY! Do they get pissed! It's made a game a lot more fun.

    I watched a Lorraine 40t jump a berm into a cliff wall and track himself twice.

    you guys ever had your own team try to push you out of a cap? well I just did. three dipshits from SNTNL proclaimed it was their cap and started pushing me out. time ran out before i could rail one of them from my GWPanther.

    gdamn right. 5 more seconds and I coulda gotten a shot off.

    couple battles with the GWPanther. seems ok. got the upgraded stuff right away. i will probably sell my Hummel since I don't want to retrain crew again, but the week I had that thing was pretty fun.

    now, only another 100k xp for the IS8 . :bore

    HE shells to the tracks. Very little damage, very small fine, and resets their cap counter.

    I've recently started making proper use of my Matilda and M4A2E4. I get my doubles in the T-44 and Patton, then immediately move the crews to the premium tanks. Makes for a far more productive evening. Seriously considering the purchase of a Churchill now.

    Man, can't win anything with the AMX12T since 8.0. Haven't lived through a battle since. Keep on getting mowed down by tier 9-10 tanks that are as fast, but 100x the armor and gun.

    So now we have to reload HE shells to fight our own team at the cap... great. I've already experienced a T-50-2 from my team ramming the side of my platoon mate's and my TD's to reset our cap.

    The other day I had two KV-1 that were platooned and on my team push me into a lake and drown my crew. They also did it to another teammate before a JgPanther killed them he became blue and they were try to tell everyone that he was the TKer. Really sucks since since they did not shoot me or the other guy they never turned blue.

    There's a reporting button for "causing team damage" and another for "unfair play", I suggest using them vigorously, by the whole team, against such hooligans.

    Dunno. Just reported a T34 that pushed me out of my sniper-hole, so he could have it. Gus-something. Fucker.

    Of the three similar AMX's the 12t is the dog of the group because it's too slow even with max crew, bia, off road & vent.

    The best of the trio is the 75. The 90mm is great gun wise but the reload keeps you out of action for a year. The 75's movement & reload speed make it a joy once you get use to the passive camo scout starts->sniper spam-> slashing breakthrough at the right moment.

    Because so many mediums are almost the same speed, you really need a max crew. The amx12t+ is harder to play now. Weve gotten quicker off the line in 7.5 and 8.0 but the physics make it much more difficult because you can't pin or box anything anymore.

    I only got to play for about 3hrs this entire weekend....and had this same thing happen to me twice....first time I let it go...second time I drove very nicely away came around behind him and put a 120mm up his ass. I am surpised you have not gotten a nasty gram on me on that one....if it was not for the other TD that was there I would have been labeled a TK'er....figures the arty player that I was next to said nothing....but anyway.

    In those 3hrs I did make about 600k silver in the su85 on the silver bonus weekend....that is nice....the new 8 has had some problems...people doing swan dives off of cliffs and such...had a few matches where people jumped to their death from the light house, and I did fall into the frozen lake on one of the artic maps....the ice even broke...nice touch.

    Over all I think it does add to the game, but there are a few asses in there....did not see the cap reset thing tho.
