    yeah I think those are what I have. it shows pretty much nothing on the front of the 59 if I recall. Will keep an eye out next battle.

    the upgraded turret is needed for the tier 8 gun on the 25/2.

    stats for current t6 turret vs upgrade (which costs 7500xp). stock armor 76/25/25 traverse 18 view range 380 weight 4800
    upgrade t8 76/25/25 traverse 18 view range 380 weight 5500

    :scratch

    gun T7 90mm 7.79 rpm 160/243/45 damage 240/240/320 accuracy .35-.36 1.7 aiming time weight 2050

    upgrade t8 90mm 170/258/45 all other specs the same

    24k xp for the two upgrades. Apparently the upgraded turret is enclosed rather than open.

    most tanks have shown a clear advantage to upgrading..

    Sounds similar to the "upgraded" M36 turret. I opted to not upgrade the turret and keep on grinding to the T25

    They reworked the camo system, and refunded any gold you paid back to your account.

    New system lets you choose a season (summer, winter, desert) of camo, which only appears in those maps, and adds 5% real camo benefit to your tank if you draw the appropriate map. The alternative is to buy all 3 seasons (which I've done on my money-making Churchill) so no matter what, you have a benefit.

    I believe this was an 8.0 upgrade.

    And, BAM, just like that, not even two weeks later, I'm burnt out again on WoT and the 8 year olds who end up on my teams in pub matches.

    It's far too painful of a game to submit to the torture that WoT has become... when I said something to this effect, a clan mate stated that WG advertised WoT on the cartoon network during kiddie cartoon hours, then sent me a link to a youtube video replay that had recorded the voices of what seemed to be an entire 15 tank team of, and I'm not shitting you, 6 to 9 year olds.

    I'm done during this event, and I am fast approaching being done with the game entirely if I don't merely subsist on company battles and clan wars.

    I"ve given up on worrying about win/loss rations n stuff like that. too many people out there worse than me (yes it's true) that just run around like retards.
    I get pissed, but if I get a couple good whacks in here n there I don't feel so bad.
    Yes I do. but I have beer and deal with it.

    Platoons make it all worthwhile for me. Papalobster, timk and I platooned up tonight and cleaned house. 2 Tigers and a Tiger P and we dominated 3 matches in a row, among our other pursuits. Thanks for the play time tonight gentlemen. :clap :lol3

    Thanks Man!

    Anyone have the T30? What do you think of it?

    Finally got the Church VII and it's a POS. It's supposed to be the equal of the KV-1S? Ha!

    Nice! I like how you use the thing more as a bulldozer than a tank :rofl

    Backing into that Jagd and pinning him while you killed the other two was a nice move :thumb

    Holy Mother of God.

    1) I need a better computer.

    2) I need to max out my E-75.

    3) I need to adjust my play style.

    I have a T34E4 super pershing (gold tank) .. I'm soon going to unlock the parallel T34 Pershing.
    Can I move my super pershing crew to pershing (same teir) without penalty?
