    You need to post that in the contest here: http://worldoftanks.com/news/1981-caption-contest-crank-it-11/

    Failure to comply will carry consequences. :deal

    And yes, I know they want a caption of their flying Maus, but I think it deserves a graphic response, maybe tie the two together.

    Something like... 1st pic, "Maus?" 2nd pic, "Pounce!"

    Here's one of the wonderful teams I ended up on tonight.....

    Yeah, we got steamrolled, then one of the arty tried to blame it on me, completely ignoring the fact that I was holding a flank with one other tank while the 7 tanks that went west together got eliminated with barely a whimper.

    Had a platoon with two BAD clan guys (one a new member who was given tags as we played), and we were in our tier 8's. The opposing team was pretty equal except for their three Guerrillas guys in 59's... so we knew this was going to be tough.

    Then we had fun the rest of the night. Tier 3's even in a tier 4 battle - with Gold rounds anything is sometimes possible.

    I did more damage in my tier 3 than any tier 4 on either team.

    Now for the big question - has anyone else ever got terrain-stuck here?

    I couldn't believe it since I've been over that bridge so many times...

    Didn't we have someone get stuck there on the opposing team once? I think Cat was in his su-26 in that battle...:kumbaya

    Your max xp has me beat by a mile. Great show!

    I'm surprised though. Apparently the Max XP in a Battle stat now ignores Free vs Premium accounts. Wasn't always so.

    (This was done while running a Premium Account. Yet my max xp is still 2341 for some other battle lost to history.)

    I think they leveled the playing field for comparison at 8.0.....all the XP totals in the team screen at the end of the battle are free account XP levels.

    Yep, but if you were to look at the team score page of the battle results it would all show non premium results.

    Anyone noticed any terrain exploits? I could swear once in a while I get shot through buildings/hills/etc. I'm not talking about "invisible tank" (when you never see who killed you) shots but those times when you are killed and it shows your enemy and they are on the other side of a solid surface.

    Note: I killed a T29 last night by putting a round through his hatch that I could barely see above the rock he thought was protecting him. He was "upset" with me, thinking I cheated somehow. But I'm talking totally on the other side of an obstacle taller than your tank by a good margin.

    I got hit last night by a guy whose barrel was hidden totally behind a rubble pile.....I think it was on Widepark.
