    ... if you let them.
    A maxed out M7 is pretty good, but it isn't for everybody. I like to move around, but I want to be able to do at least a little damage to bigger tanks.
    I generally won't take on a heavy by myself or at close range, but sometimes it works out and a stock KV is REALLY slow.

    My newest problem is getting slotted with tier 8 and 9s most of the time. You have to be very careful who you try to duke it out with.:lol3
    I have to really change my game play depending on where I am in the stack. I guess that's why I like medium tanks.

    This was the problem I had with my M7, always with tier 7 and 8 tanks unfortunatelly... on the plus side, I found the M4A3E8 alot better and you are still with the tier 7 and 8's most of the time.

    These days im all about the German kit, tier for tier some of the best kit above tier 5 IMHO.

    Yo, Smithy......nice playing that one match with you last night, even if we did get stomped. You should pay attention to chat a little more during the countdown, though....:deal


    My WoT annoyance of the day.....they need to add an indicator to the contact box to show if the people in your list are in battle or in the garage, so you're not wasting time trying to talk to someone that is busy. Switch, I wasn't ignoring you last night...you started chat while I was in battle and then you were off and gone by the time I got done.

And I've also got to ask what setting to change to let MACs work with it. I couldn't remember the format is has to be set to for them to work. When he oks it I'll PM y'all the server info.

    I was home sick with a respitory infection last couple days and got myself a Priest with all the upgrades, except for the good radio.

    I like the artillery route as I suck at maneuvering with the keyboard buttons in heated battles.

    I was thinking about a short term premium account too, just to get up to the better mediums. Sucks taking an M2 med against an IS!

    No big deal.....I was very surprised to see us randomly placed on the same side of the battle....

    So how long does the download take and what's the initial and monthly cost.


    I know I'll want the upgrades that can only be received with a low monthly membership charge.:lol3

    It's free to play and I've been doing that since the release. You don't need a premium account to have fun.
    I finally bought some gold ($7=1250) which is enough for a week of premium. If I would have read their news, I would have waited until today and got it for half the gold. It's on sale for a few days.

    So what does having a channel mean? I'm PUI and had to relinqush the desktop to the missus.

    I wasn't doing so good on the arty after squishing a KV-5, so I gave up for the evening. Damn T-50's!

    Lower left corner of the garage screen, to the left of the contacts button. I had a text chat channel created for multiple people to log on to instead of having all the individual private chat boxes.

    Edit: I just logged into WoT and the channel is still there. I'm going to leave it running for any of us to use when on. I know that some of us don't have voice comms, so it'll make it easier to coordinate the group if we want to platoon.

    been playing on the EU servers for a couple of weeks now.

    I'm a sucker for weak armour apparently, got myself the target otherwise known as the Russian t-28. It's got speed but if a sparrow farts it looses hp, Doesn't help that it casn be seen from orbit either :lol3

    Only redeeming feature is the 85mm gun you can mount, taking out kv's with three shots is fun, oneshotting most anything teir three or lower is just sadistic :lol3

    Usual battle involves a fiery death at some point, but then sometimes there are great battles where i do a late suicide run to the enemy base, take out a couple of td's an arty and another t-28 and cap the base :clap

    The its right back to the fiery deaths :bluduh
