    our play ground was The Snowy Mountains in Wyoming

    The snow on the back side was neck deep fun

    I guess that T34 battle yesterday helped get me primed to move the T30 to an Ace Tanker today:

    This really wasn't the most challenging game I've had... it was just a normal game. Not sure why I got Ace for it. Sam, I was looking for ya all morning, but you weren't on.

    In the end, I was trying to hide in a corner since I was the last one left. Did 450+ dmg to the T34 that finally got me after arty tracked me.

    I'm going to miss the IS bonus weekend.

    So yeah, a mobile tank with a BIG gun is a lot of fun. What other tanks fit that bill? The IS can take a few hits, but not a lot.
