    Hehehe....the T-28 is one of my favorite targets when I play my M37. It's as close to a guaranteed one-shot as I have seen.

    I just sold my T-28 and moved (up?) to the KV. Made me want the T-28 back. The 85mm gun on the 28 actually made it useful and I didn't realize the speed was so good until I got Molasses (KV). Upgraded to that huge target KV2 turret so I can eventually get a real gun on the thing. I mainly bought it for the upcoming KV split.
    I find myself playing the MS-1 just for fun, I think I'll even camo paint it.

    Found some skins today. The only issue is they are resident only on my PC so I don't believe anyone else can see them. Still fun though...

    My elite Tetrarch is my favorite tank, I wish they'd let it play more maps. All day today, I've been on, it's been "Mines" and a veeeery occasional Marinovka (sp?). That sucker will do over 60, and the gun isn't super, but fast reloading and enough of a punch that it'll kill scouts and light arty pretty quick.

    I like to slum once in a while and it has a great gun for it's size, and it looks a little wonky. I can't bring myself to part with it.

    I had the premium (free) Tetrarch and it wasn't impressive at all.

    Just giving you a hard time.....if there is one tier 1 that I'm going to put back in the garage eventually, it's the MS-1.

    I seem to be having a problem.ventrilo doesnt seem to work while the game is active.
    If i tab out of the game it works fine.
    But if im in game,i dont think its transmitting.
    I can hear just fine in or out of game though.
    Any thoughts?

    I always used the steam voice chat with my buddy, I just added the game as a non steam game, then it runs in the background. Its unfortunate that you cant customise the button selection for the WoT in game chat...

    Smithy, just team up with a tier 3 tank in the tet and you should get a better map selection.

    The only things I can think of:
    Do you have voice chat enabled inside the game? That might cause an interference if you do.
    Do you have a hotkey enabled (check the Vent setup) and if so, does it conflict with a game control? Stock hotkey is left control, which is a game control. I reset mine to Q and Vent works just fine. I do have to adjust the volumes inside the game so I can hear what's being said on Vent.

    What's the link to the Vent channel? I installed it once, but never used it. How do we find each other?

    That'd be cool, thanks. I put the kids down between 8-9, but will probably be on by then intermittently and solid afterwards, barring any honey-do's that get in the way. :deal

    Have you guys read any of the rumored changes coming with the next update? Evidently some tanks are getting changed and if you have one you will get the modified version and a premium tank (and extra garage slot to go with it). That's one of the reasons I went with the KV. Supposedly the update is coming end of Feb. or March sometime...

    You must be running Windows 7. I have to run Vent as the Admin to make it work. Right click on it's icon and there an option to run it as Admin. will fix it.
