    you close your game client and download the replay. once downloaded you open it and it will open and play through your game client.

    Edit, yet again I am VERY late on the draw.... sigh, I guess I will go do something.

    Who is looking for the Chinese tier 8 Light Premium? If you are they are going on sale in the gift shop with about $30 in extras.

    Who has experience with them? I really want the Type 59, but I am wondering how the light is as I have not seen many of them being used.

    Put the derp gun on the KV1 tonight. Silly fun in a tier 5 matchup. Four kills, steel wall and reaper. :D

    To be honest my favorite gun in that tank is not the Derp or the Top gun, it was one of the lower guns, insanely accurate and high rate of fire while still dealing decent damage for a tier 5. I was tearing up modules with that thing all I had to do was point it at the hit boxes and let 'er rip. One battle I had 20 something critical hits on 30 something shots.

    Certainly depends on the map. In a city at close range the derp is great. Couple of open maps after that it was terrible. Never know what map you'regoing to get...

    take a look at what maps you fight on regularly, only one of them (Himmelsdorf) does not have an open field to use the more accurate gun effectively, remember when you damage modules you damage the effectiveness of that tank. If you have the Derp gun mounted then on the field maps with no city you are hosed because you have to wade up to the enemy to damage them.

    You're aware that that is the Russian T-34 Medium, not the American T34 Heavy, right?

    Derp is ok on KV-1.....I preferred the 85mm. It lets you learn the play style you'll need as you climb higher in the Russian heavy tree.

    Excited for V 8.5:

    Gameplay Changes & Additions

    Premium consumables (med kits, repair kits, etc.) are now available for credits (matching the gold/credits exchange rate similar to that of premium shells)

    The creation of platoons for three players is now available for non-premium accounts

    The creation of tank companies is now available for non-premium accounts

    Added additional matchmaking rules to keep the balance of scouts even for both teams

    Tank Changes & Updates*

    USA premium SPG Sexton tier III moved to the British tree and added to in-game shop??

    Max speed of the IS-7 increased from 50 to 59.6 km/h.:clap

    That's ok, I tried it with the client already open and Win 8 decided to look in the app store for a program to play it but couldn't find one. I'll try one more time this evening I guess. Otherwise I'll just upload teh interesting ones and let you people watch em:lol3

    Looks like I'll be able to get the vents on a couple big tanks this weekend. Probably end up running the Stug 3 mostly as that makes a lot of money in these 100% payouts.

    With the bump for non-premium platoons, I wish they'd let premium members make larger platoons - often there are nights 4 or 5 of us would like to group up, but the only way to do that is to make Companies, and that doesn't always work out well. Just a pub match with 1/3 of your team working together - that'd be nice.

    I'll log in to TS and see the groups of 3 and just log back out again and go on my merry way.

    Unfortunately, I always seem to play worse when platooned:huh

    I have to thank you guys. I now have a new addiction. I started playing this game after I saw this thread and it has become a new favorite.

    SerB is on record that they have tested larger platoons with the supertesters and it won't happen because it breaks MM......
