    These are the battles you hate to lose...

    Last one left, got the TigerP down to 14% before he got me. After that, it would've been a march over to find the artillery. And a ton of points...

    I sold the Matilda BP last night. Picked up the M36 and will work my way up the American TD line. So far it makes more money than the BP and kills stuff easier. It fools you into thinking that you have a tank with the rotating turret. But the armor reminds you that you should hide and snipe.

    I'm running the middle gun, need the tracks so I can get the 90mm. I did add the rammer and run binocs and a net.

    No Veterans Challenge for me. That's opening weekend of deer hunting in WI. I will be a bit busy.:evil

    Wow... buying a gold Lvl8 to play with has turned into a good way to make money faster.. it'd take 5 or 10 rounds for me to make this much with the lower tiers and I haven't figured out how to play this thing yet!

    On the flip side, I actually had to push a top tier heavy tank into a fight last night. He was perfectly content hiding behind a rock while an inferior force held us off, stalling as our other flank was getting crushed.

    When he finally engaged, we beat the inferior force without a loss, only to lose the match to the cap timer.

    8.1 is live over here. Seems like we get a tier1 brit and the garage slot to go with it. Also, tacky Halloween decoration for the garage.
