    I was just running my Church3 as a KV1S crew trying to get it to 100%, not running anything else though. Making lots of coin at least.

    I submitted a ticket. I bet they get thousands of dumb requests.

    I still have to run my T-28 for 4k exp to get the KV-1. Guess I'll get the x5 in the KV1.

    Boy was I right. Blow-off on the first try about game physics because I appologized that I didn't have a replay. :rolleyes

    So I found out that if you find yourself face to face with a T29 while in a Stug, apparently if you ram it and keep yourself pressed nose to nose, the T29 can't lower it's long barrel enough to touch you. Granted I feebly pumped non-penetrating shells into him but I kept him occupied until someone else could take him out.

    This is how it turns out on a horrible loss.

    [​IMG]

    ... and on an ok win.

    :clap I have a new money maker to shake around!!!:clap

    I have no doubt that as I learn how to play more to it's strengths I will make lots more money with it. but at least I know that on a loss with me doing no damage I can still make money.

    lol! that is awesome, something I never thought of, it would appear that you need to carry a few gold rounds in that thing if you plan on doing that very often.

    They got one tonight.

    We were playing Tank Companies, and ended up on Maliknovka against a team of pretty bad players. Perhaps the worst of them seemed to be an M6, 44%'er, who died immediately after being spotted from across the field.

    He kept typing things like "This match IS being recorded, and WILL be sent to war gaming" after calling us hacks.

    So... imagine you work at war gaming and have to sift through requests for action like that - every night.

    I write 'every night' because I've been in clans that would occasionally have one of these guys in it. If you platooned with them and played 10 battles, they'd call cheats out in 4 of them. No amount of common sense or talk about game mechanics could sway them to ever think, that next battle, that they perhaps weren't being cheated against. So set in their ways are they that I'm sure WG gets shit-tons of false hack reports each evening.

    In the end we won something like 8 TC battles and lost two (both against BAD) before I just now logged out. Pretty sure many teams thought we were cheating, but it really all comes down to tactics, and the -J- guy who was leading this TC was on the good side. Not expert, but good enough.

    I agree - I think that's awesome as well. HE rounds might have damaged him, but then you might have damaged yourself as well. That is a perfect scenario to practice in a training room with a T29 player to see if you could have done anything more. Not everything has to be learned or practiced the hard way in real battles.

    The gold rounds in a Stug does not penetrate the front of a T29 up close DAMHIK:bluduh

    The Stug and M4 (golden derp!) will be getting a workout this weekend.

    I have blocked off this evening for credit grinding in tier 5. I'll probably run my 8's just to get the x5, but mostly I'm going for coin.


    I think the Stug has made enough xp to go all the way to the Ferdi. I have the Jagdpanther unlocked, just haven't seen the need to work my way past the Stug yet:lol3

    Nathan's getting a KV5, he wants to go up the Russian heavy line. I'm probably getting the Super Pershing, that way I can swap my Patton crew back and forth and than I'll have a helluva crew for the M48A1.

    That's exactly what I did. It was nice starting a tier 10 with a crew halfway through their 3rd perk.

    I'll likely be running the crap out of my M7 so if you want to platoon let me know.

    On a sad note, I ended up not going on the ride I had planned today.
    30 deg is ok
    snow is ok
    rain is ok.
    30 deg with freezing rain/ice pellets and a flood warning is not ok.:cry

    I still took the day off to tinker with the bikes so it's not all bad.

    Sam.. do some spotting in the thing and see what kind of money it makes?

    Here is a on-premium equivalent round (the WZ131)

    [​IMG]


    p.s. I got one too - perfect timing considering my current push is training crews in the bottom right tanks listed below.
    Now I can double train my 59-16, WZ131 and WZ132 crews :clap

    A tip for n00bs :D

    During events like this.. Wargaming gives you a bunch of "shit you don't need".
    In this case:

    [​IMG]

    So you go to their website, redeem the code with the "2ndbdaytanks" and what happens is you get 1 day of premium (yay!) and a bunch of crap you don't know how to use. :dunno

    OH BOY! Chocolate! :csm
    :rofl

    [​IMG]

    Don't fret - what they've REALLY give you is 300,000 silver.

    Click DEPOT at the top - then click CONSUMABLES on the left - there is the list of the stuff they gave you (pictured above).

    Right click on each item and SELL IT
    Now you have 300,000 silver you didn't have a few minutes ago :clap

    Later on in your WoT career when you are fighting for the world and battles "really matter" - items like this can give you an edge over your opponent... but in pub matches they're not really worth using.

    Hope this helps :freaky

    One other tip for noobs...

    Garage Sales:

    While you are in there (the depot) you can also sell other stuff like barrels for tanks you no longer own, ammo you no longer need, etc. I clean mine out every now and then and it is usually worth a few hundred grand selling stuff.

    I won't be on until later. I have 5 bikes in my barn(not all mine :cry)
    only 1 runs properly. I have some work to do.
    -Friends YZ400 just got a carb swap and I need to adjust the squirt.
    -My XT350 has been sitting on the stand with no tires for a year and a half. I need to dig through my pile of take offs, throw something on it and get it running.
    -My brothers RM125 needs a crank. This is going to be my new Tight single track bike. It's been sitting for 5 years and will need some love though. I'd at least like to get the engine out today.

    I did support at a cable internet company... I know all about it.

    They closed my ticket with a generic response, then I reopened it and was far more simple in my explanation. Got a better response back. Dunno if they banned him or what, but it's done. :dunno
