    so what mods is everyone using? i use:

    XVM (rewrote to show games played IN THE CHOSEN TANK and win rate in that. then it's really nifty!)
    Aslain Icon's (i like the bigger tank names that are color coded by class & tiers)
    J1mB0's Crosshair (it's just cute)
    Remove the shadow when scoped

    on my laptop AHuMex's 25% texture compression really helps out

    hitbox skins from worldoftanksskins (because their library is larger)

    I have a Tracfone. I'm frugal that way.

    I don't run any mods.

    I tried the fancy gun on th e3601 for one battle. Just doesn't do enough damage to be effective. I like the 88. Now, if I could swap the 88 from the Tiger P to the 3601........:evil

    The Konisch on the 3601 is really only effective with gold ammo. Best to stick with the short 88 there.

    XVM
    J1mB0's Crosshair
    Scope shadow remover
    LocaPeta's HD Minimap
    Demole's Damage panel
    DAR Artillery sight
    Some hitbox skins, don't remember who's. It's the one that has thin outlines and icons. not the rainbow clown car version.

    Some I can live without, but others I'm too used to. Many of the must have mods I used to run are now built into the game.

    I quit. Nothing but teams of clueless scrubs tonight, just like the last time I played a week and a half ago. This ain't worth my time. See y'all in Borderlands.

    +1 - just had a nicely fought battle, only to turn around and find out the rest of the team had disappeared - 3 to 15 loss. :cry

    Holy hell...

    I went through the trial that was the tier 4 B1 heavy french tank - I thought I earned my right to an OK tank.

    Have any of you played the hell that is the tier 5 BDR french tank?! I mean, sure, I don't have a 100% crew on it... but I wasted a good amount of credits and now have this useless pile of garbage with the top gun, top turret, top engine, and top tracks. What I get for my effort and the use of my XP was a heavy that is slower than any other tier 5 I know of, while having the armor of a light tank that allows anything to pen it, anywhere, from any angle - oh, yeah, and a super-slow reload to ensure that if, by some off chance, you do catch up to where the action is, you will only ever get off two or three shots before the battle ends, or before you die.

    I am seriously considering creating one of those Hitler-reacts YouTube videos about this pile of garbage and the garbage we all had to work with before getting to the BDR.

    It always sucks to have a really good personal game and find out the rest of the team sucked. I had 4 kills w my IS3 before work. took all 4 almost all of the way down, damaged 2 more. I think I ended up with 600xp as a 2x win.

    For its tier, I'd argue, IIRC, that the AMX 40 has OP armor, and one of the best tier-4 guns. I didn't like it at all, but the B1 heavy was worse, and now this BDR is a huge let down considering I've played those others and thought I did the hard part.

    French heavies... theres a contradiction. The ARL 44 is decent, or atleast has a good gun. AMX M4 45 is ok, and the line gets good at tier 8 (where im currently stuck) The problem I have is when you finally get to tier 8, forget being a heavy, your a medium. o.k. gun, but paper armour... you do get speed though.

    I take those for what they are. Really I am fine with public matches....I really have only 2 major gripes with the game.

    1) the well know how I feel about arty....again last night I will killed on the first round by arty....and let me be clear, the first round fired by the arty at me killed me. My direct fire tanks with 100%+ crews are not this accurate. They will not see one more thin dime from me as long as arty is this way.....and I fowl mouth and let arty die on my team every chance I get...yes it is a dick move but at this point I don't care....I have one goal in this game I want to see arty die I don't care who's team it is on.

    2) let the low tier tanks play all the maps.....this is just fucking stupid....why do the low tier tanks only get to play a hand full of maps....just flat fucking stupid.

    I don't play any mods on the game...just the game as the game is.

    Every time this happens to me I just say to my self, well i did my part, cant do everything myself, and think how much better I was in that battle then 14 other hairless apes.:lol3

    I agree with #2 there but none of my artys are that good. the Grill is close but the aim time is still so long. but i don't play them much. I just want my PZIV back. Also no mods here.

    Sick day for me today. I anticipate I'll be grinding quite a bit.

    I couldn't hit a durn thang with the Priest last night. The SU26 seemed a bit off too, but still played ok. I cringe every time a hit the battle button. That thing just sucks so bad. I should sell it and go back to the M41, grind the credits there to get the M40/43. I just can't make any xp with the 12.

    So far, having run the Tiger P a bit, I'm not a fan of heavy play. Might be why I don't care for the Churchill anymore as well. I like TD's, Mediums, arty in that order. I didn't like any of the light tanks either.
