    What - are they getting rid of maps now?

    I really enjoy playing Province map, now it seems to have disappeared for higher tier battles.

    Wouldn't be surprised if they remove certain maps due to low popularity, Dragon Ridge is one of my fav.

    They need more like it. I love running around that map in a t-50 / t-50-2!

    I thought Province was an excellent new map as well. I haven't played it in at least a week, so it was like they took it out of the game for some reason. Anyone know what tier is the limit in Province then?

    Run a low tier map....I have a few tier 2 tanks that I enjoy to play and it seems you get three maps, province, mines, and the one with the big field in the middle and you both start on each side.

    I can tell you....you will play that map A LOT if you play the low tiers.

    Ok it is official....I love the churchill....man that thing is fun. I put the gun rammer and now that thing shoots like a machine gun...relods are in the 2 sec range. Rolled up behind a t14 and put about 10 rounds into him before he could get halfway around.

    And I know there is bonus credits this weekend but I have been getting 50k on a good game and 20 on a crap game. If it is 3x credits then I will still be happy....and to repair a toasted tank is like 2k

    The last thing is I have NEVER been out of the top 5 in this tank...makes me think that being a prem. does have advantages.

    Down side is the thing does have a very long nose...I did learn not to poke it arownd corners early on.

    Pretty sad when I can't even enjoy the game because MM keeps grouping me with a bunch of looser campers with untrained crews. For the morning, I'm 3-14. In most of the losses, my team hasn't even had a chance.

    I've been a fan of the 6pdr for a long time.
    It's what I run in my M7.
    Fast gun on a fast tank (60+kph).
    I run the rammer, stabilizer, and vent class on it.
    Max dmg isn't very good, but it has good pen, and with the rate of fire, the dmg adds up.

    +1 - it's a real bummer to play a decent game in your corner of the map, then look around and see that most of your team is dead, and the rest of the bad guys are coming for you! :eek1:yikes

    I second the motion on the Churchill ruling the game right now. I just lost a Dragon Ridge battle, 11-15, but came away with 1000 xp and 62,000 credits. 1 kill and half a dozen damaged. Holy shit.

    I'm running the rammer, camo net, and binocs on mine, I like the "heavy scout" role sometimes, and getting a half dozen shots before they know where you are is always fun for me.

    Had an opposing player commend me on my scouting tonight after I took out his scout then both his arty. That's a first for me as my 13-75 driving could use some work. :freaky

    I had the very, very rare game yesterday where my 13 75 was in the top tier... lol. The opposing team didn't stand a chance.

    ......

    Otherwise, I'm running into the politics of joining a clan. Sure, i like being nice to everyone, and saying "Hi," listening to mis-information and such about tanks in the game (usually by players who like to run, or wan to own, an E-100...), and what-not, but...

    Being expected to platoon up with clan mates who don't know how to play isn't why I was so choosy about joining a clan in the first place. I really don't mind taking the same amount of time in a training room with them to help them progress, so it isn't that I don't want to help them...

    But then there's the 'other' part... I'm not sure if this is a unique situation or what, but my clan is very good friends with another clan. We all use the same TeamSpeak channel, and twice now I've been given the login info for accounts that are in the other clan. Their problem, and what will be my clan's problem when we get into it, is one of having enough people online to fight in a clan war. I have no problem with using someone else's account, lol, but I really don't want to give up mine with the gold, the tier ten tanks, and various crews with training options that I don't really want noobs screwing with. But in the desperation of joining clan wars but then not having enough people, such is the situation we're being asked - that is, to volunteer our accounts when we're not online.

    Am I being too selfish?

    Anyone have any idea when the new tanks are coming on line? I'm trying to grind out a T95 TD before then...sigh.

    Right now, no date is published for 7.4 (French arty and TD's), but word is it's already live on the RU server, so it might come out tomorrow. If not, it should be out by 6/26. It wouldn't surprise me to see the Brit tree appear in 7.5 and the Tier 10 meds and TD's in 7.6, but there is no info out on that at all, other than that they're coming. We still don't have any clue when the physics patch is coming either.

    Not no but hell no.

    If they asked me for my account info I would tell them to pound sand...and my highest tank is a 6....but I have like 4 crews at 100% working on their first perk...some in tanks like an H35 and Pz III....I don't want anyone screwing with that.

    It's my account, nobody else plays it, period, end of story, full stop. It's my gold, my tanks that I earned. Nobody else gets access to screw up my win rate.....I'm plenty good at doing that myself.

    I will let my son play under my account, but he knows not to buy anything but ammo and spend money to fix tanks.

    How's this for irony.....yesterday ended up 9-26 :puke2with 3 survived for a total of 3009 battles played, 1003 battles survived. I've decided to quit caring because I'm sure the new battle modes in 7.4 are going to cause even more chaos than school getting out did.

    That's different.....I'd let my son play my account (he has his own) but allowing a complete stranger have access to an account that I've poured cash money into isn't happening.
