    I seem to get the new map when I have other things going on.
    I bought a KV-1 this morning and the first (only) battle is on the new map.

    So I'm trying to figure out a new tank and I have no idea where the enemy likes to hide on this map... :lol3

    I put the heavy turret and light gun on it, I like the rapid reloads. I've gotten a little better at finding hull down position, so it ought to do OK.

    We lost. They capped while I was hunting the other two remaining tanks. I got them but their guy on cap got our other remaining tank.

    Seriously. Maybe there's something whacked. I played my M7 for the first time yesterday and had a fairly average game for a 2nd class mastery.

    About the M7...

    I think I'm up to 1st on it. It's like playing a Churchill III only fast and you can't get hit more than once in a tier 7 game. :lol3

    There's something about dealing 900 damage to 5 different tanks in the first 90 seconds of a round before exploding that's totally hilarious to me.

    Made 12k that round.

    BTW...Didn't shoot ANY gold that round.

    I can't believe it took me 290 battles to get Ace Tanker on my T34....

    (Dave, this is the battle you had to wait for me to finish last night.)

    I can't watch it.

    My Comcast internet seems to be getting slower and slower. Even at the lowest setting it isn't downloading correctly, and it's too painful to watch at that speed.

    Trying to decide what to spend credits on next. I'm 75% the way to the T-62A, but at this level, while I like the idea of a powerful Tier X in the garage, I am also eyeballing the french Lorraine 155 50 artillery. Problem is, I already have 2 Tier 6 arty's, the GW Panther and the S-51... but the lure of the BatChat 155 is strong.

    Or I could blow the whole wad chasing the Leopard 1 line, but I think I have enough to get to the Indien Panzer, maybe... and it's a steep grind up from there.

    Or I could just buy every tank in the charts through tier 3 and make seal-clubbing my new professional hobby.



    Decisions, decisions.

    Nevermind, Sam goaded me into the UK TD line. Just threw down for the AT-7, fully kitted. 10-round auto-loader surprised me, pleasantly.

    it would have been better out of the box if you had mounted the tier 8 gun rather than just buying it.... :deal

    I had some fucking idiot on my team pump 5 rounds into my tank. As soon as I saw him do it I fired at him once and he quit.
    At the time it was happening I didn't realize it was all him. I had to go back and watch the replay to see if he did all that damage.
    Of course, the fine was heavier than the compensation.

    I don't know if it's worth lodging a complaint over or not.

    Couldn't figure out why all the targets went away when I was having such a great game.
