    Yep, since 8.2....just quick lag outs here and there, enough to be annoying. I did have one complete disconnect last night, though. Weirdest thing, the game just stopped.


    Of course, it was a Tier X match while I was running my T34. When I reconnected, I had all of 96 hit points left and time to get one shot off before I died.


    The "S" key is your friend, or use the space bar to apply the brakes.

    Last night I was experiencing lag spikes as well. WoT's support forum has some activity on the issue, so I would just let if work itself out.

    I'm gonna run the British light → medium line. Currently at the Cruiser Mk 4, and wow, this thing is devastating. It's like driving a BT-7 with a German gun. This is gonna be awesome.

    Last night was painfull. I think I ended up 1-8 before I gave up. I can usually find a tier that works, but it wasn't in the cards I guess.
    Anyone else notice that MM seems to be putting platoons together? I think I only had one battle where anyone was platooned, and it was only two people on each side. A couple of days ago when I was platooned, nearly every battle was full of platoons on both sides.
    Not sure how I feel about it. It makes sense, but it also means that there is no coordination at all in non platoon battles. I had at least 4 battles last night where everyone but me and maybe 1 more tank went to one side.

    I see that a lot too. Most of the time I'm driving thin skinned stuff, so when I see that I'm almost forced to follow the herd lest I explode in a ball of fire right off the bat, or be forced to run.

    That appears to be the same group of clans as Havok, correct? You say less opportunity for gold. Is that because you will be in a supporting clan that won't hold as much land but acts strategically to help Havok?

    This was an encounter that someone on another forum I'm a part of had with their SU-26 and an ELC.

    Just a note that I am in Cancun (without a bike) for the week and won't be on much. If you would like your name added to the 1st page, message me and I'll get it added when I'm back. I would seriously consider moving here :evil

    I am so pissed right now, I got the mastery badge with my Hetzer, but take a look at who destroyed me and which team they were on... I was lined up to get the last kill and he swung and fired on me. :cry

    I always strive to do at least my own hitpoints in damage, some times I don't, but sometimes I do. :D

    That is more than 600 over my own HP...

    At Smurf's request, what is the consensus of this camo? I think it looks like a clown fish. :rofl

    Tier X T-shirt redemption code came in the email tonight! Up to 4 weeks for delivery, but when it comes and my wife asks "what the hell is that?" I'll tell her it's because "I'm just that good at killing tanks."


    :lol3

    I expect a kick in the slats for that.

    :lol3
