    Didn't want to lose the credits, and he was storming to the front as fast as he could, knocking people aside as he went. And we were on Defense in Karelia. Better to just let him get pummeled without support.

    Sometimes I play so fucking stupid I can't believe it.
    I get target fixation and forget to watch my flanks and rear. You think I'd learn eventually.

    Riddle me this, last night I nicked a teammate for 25 hp with my GW Panther and got fined 1300. Today in my SU-26 I get teamraped by a asshole Bison [ SoundersDaBest {piap} ] and get zero compensation:puke1. I got 1 kill 5 damage 86 capture points and a defender:lol3

    I think I might have just played the fastest round ever.

    Map: Karelia

    I was in the hellcat.. guarding the left alley and realized they only had one person on the other end.. 3 of us rushed him, killed him, continued to the flag and killed the arti - nobody else back.

    Cap took 18 seconds.. nobody get back in time to stop us.

    Total of 4 or 5 people died on both teams together :huh

    Team Damage Inflicted = You pay a penalty to an amount of four times the repair costs required to fix the damage that was inflicted, limited by the total amount earned during battle.
    Team Damage Received = You receive compensation for half the repair costs required to fix the damage or a quarter of the penalty paid by the player(s) who caused the team damage, whichever is lower.

    Also note that team damage done to/by someone you're in a platoon with is not punished.

    Doing the big switch-aroo in clans again.

    Leaving a very good clan solely because I have found that I enjoy TeamSpeak servers that serve more than one clan at a time - this gives me far better chances of meeting people to platoon with at, say, 7 AM eastern standard time than does a single-clan TS server.

    [​IMG] to [​IMG] (I have no clue what that cloud means... our symbols on our tanks were -__- for What? clan)

    So now I'm off to the Burning Legion. Less opportunity for gold, less clan war wins probably, but... there are SEVEN clans all using the same TS server, and all using the same "Looking For Platoon" channel in it when individual players from any of the clans are looking to play. :D

    I guess this means I gave up my rights to the Gold I earned. :cry

    Priorities...

    :sigh...

    It just isn't my night. Every time I get in a light tank I get one shotted.
    Even my med and heavy games are too short.

    Maybe someone put a bicycle flag on my tank while I wasn't looking...
    Or the headlights are on...

    That gives me an idea, do you suppose they'll introduce night or twilight battles?

    I want you guys to take a look at the final scores for my entire team.

    I kept killing, yet when I looked up I saw we had zero kills... and somehow they continued to fight every kill I was making the entire game.

    I took this screen-shot in-game just as the last tank, our T1 Heavy, was dying. He didn't get a kill either.

    2 TopGun awards in 10 battles for my SU-26 yesterday; I guess the nerf wasn't too bad or having 360+% crew just compensates for the nerf:dunno.

    Tier 9/10 battle last night I was aiming the M40/43 at an IS-8 that I had just hit previously. He was on the back side of a slight slope. I hit the bang button and a fella in a speedy Chinese tank runs right into the shells flight path going after the same tank. I musta hit him square cuz he died from almost 100% health. The fine from that partyicular battle cost me 20k in silver after repairs/ammo.

    I gotta figure out how to mark my targets before shooting.

    I did get Kamikaze inthe Cromwell last night by ramming a Panther in Fishermans bay. A T21 was doing the circle of death and I hit him full speed:lol3 That's a fun ramming tank. Nobody really appreciates ramming these days:deal

    I had a good ram kill in my SU-152 yesterday. Started on the southeast corner of Fjords, went due north up and around. We had the center under control, but there was a Dmax exposed around the corner coming across the north side that I knew the T49 in front of me couldn't deal with, so I charged. I come around the corner and not only was it a Dmax, there was a full health Sherman with him. I took a snap shot on the Sherman and he vaporized and then rammed the Dmax for the second kill in about 5 seconds. :lol3 Yeah, we won that one.
