    Here are a couple more vids I uploaded last night.....the first is a perfect example of how to take advantage of a passive scout. Keep an eye on the 59-16 in front of me. He does an excellent job of NOT pressing his left mouse button.

    And the second....well, who doesn't like a big gun....:deal

    I got verbally assaulted from an AMX13/75 driver yesterday. Accused me of camping in Redshire. Started in the north and I sat on top of the hill sniping at stuff. 3 kills, 3 others for damage. This yahoo starts calling out what our team was doing to the opfor team because he rushed off and died quickly. He's telling them where our arty was, all 3 of them. Our lone heavy and myself in the T28. I get on all chat and say "I'm camped at C5 in the open my gun is pointing to G6ish. Bring it!"

    I got a chorus of LOL's from both teams and then a multitude of shutups to the AMX guy.

    Nobody came after me:evil

    We won, our arty capped:rofl

    Nicely handled. Glad you won... it's hard enough even without asshats like that wasting your time and shifting your attention.

    I filed a ticket about last nights friendly fire incident.
    I was told that the automatic system takes care of these things and to not take matters into my own hands.

    So I guess there is no recourse against that type of griefer, just wait for the system to catch him.

    One thing I don't understand is why they won't let you name names in the WoT forums. It seems it would straighten out the asshats.

    Anyone else notice their XVM changing? When installed, i had the team score on the top as normal. Played that way for a couple days. Now it's gone. My advanced minimap is also gone. wtf? And once in awhile, my hits/damage counter isn't showing up in battle either. I changed nothing.

    Oh, this is big....this is very big. I haven't ever seen Tier 9 and 10 tanks go on sale. I happen to already have the IS-8 researched. I wonder if SWMBO will allow me enough time to grind out the xp to get to IS-7......

    Unfortunately when you sell it they give you 50% - so you'd net negative 20% :D

    This will be a good excuse to play my IS7 a bunch :thumbs

    Was just making sure the gun worked... not my fault you drove in front of me! :rofl

    I know that feeling... I was rolling out in my Pz1 and got about ten feet before blowing up. Some idiot in a tier VI something or other put a round through me. No apology or nothing.... and the compensation was a lot less than I would have made in the round had I even survived a few more minutes....

    I tk'd a T21 with my M43 yesterday. He zipped in on the 2801 as my round was in the air. I said sorry right away. He was ok with it because I apologized. Poop occurs.

    That would be a two week period starting tomorrow, and May 1st is a big day in old Soviet Russia, so this whole thing makes sense. I would say not to make any major tank buying moves today, just in case.

    damnit. figured though.

    I need 30k xp in the IS3 to get the IS8.
    I need to know if it's worth it.

    Remember I also am grinding credits for the T110E4 and IS4.
