    The top center display is part of the game engine.....it has nothing to do with XVM.

    I had a sneeze shot at the beginning of a game a few weeks ago with the m41, it ended badly for the Cromwell that played catch... He was mad, I apologised profusely, he contacted my clan commander who just laughed at him. No he was not associated with the m4's that tked bill and I earlier.

    sent from my abacus.

    A word for anyone buying a new tank.

    First,when you get the tank,make sure to BUY BULLETS before you enter battle.

    Second,when you buy the tank,and free exp the top gun on it,MAKE SURE YOU MOUNT THE GUN,THEN BUY BULLETS for it.

    lesson learned,I guess.....:facepalm

    I just found this GIF when i was looking through my downloads for some XVM stuff.
    I came across it years ago,and to this day it makes me chuckle.
    It's kind of relevant to tanks,Kind of long though......

    It would put a whole new meaning to "clan wars", people making baseless claims, bogging down the forum with replay "proof" videos, distracting from the point of the game - to have fun. Let the asshats slide to the side, man... and get on with killin'.

    addendum: and when you run your arse out of money, it turns off the auto-resupply.
    After you make some money with another tank, make sure you BUY BULLETS before the next battle :patch

    Sweet! The T-34 and T-34-85 are tank of the month for May. 30% credit increase.

    I have the T-34 researched and a T-28 crew ready to transition over, just been raising funds to purchase. Then I blew that on the KV-1S that was on sale. Better grind some more credits, I guess!

    I just made elite on my Tier 2 US artillery. I switch back and forth between just playing that and working my way up the French artillery line.

    Still enjoying my JS-3....not real sure if I do want to move up....I have about 100K XP to the next tank...just not real sure if it is going to be worth it.

    I do know from my last step up with the T54 and the Patton....OMG I just can't get the hang of the patton....I bet I die in 90% of the games....painful....and I lose money every time I take it out. T54...I do pretty well in....go figure.

    I had a few pretty good games in the Type 64 last night....50k silver is a nice payday for doing so little work.....you can really crank up the silver in that tank.....think I have it figured out now.

    +1 My problem is I play it like a heavy. I should play it like a supporting passive scout. I like playing it and have fun, but I need to run my Church 3 or French arty for a few battles to make up the credits, even with a win. I transfer my crew from my Super Pershing back and forth.

    I'm almost certain that I won't evet get a tier 10 anything. I can't afford to run em:bluduh

    I installed the mod pack that was posted earlier, the only things that took were Jimbo's reticle, the advanced mini map and I get pre-battle stats. No colors or any of the other stuff.
