    Crappy past couple of days, totally retarded teams. Then they get mad at me when I can't take out a KV-5 and 2 Type 59's all by my lonesome :huh

    If I hide my KV 5 in the corner of the map, I can rush the base at the end and surprise everyone!:bluduh

    We should get extra coin or experience for pointing out stupid people. And I'm not even very good!

    Those are a few of the reasons I just love this game....it is so much fun to trash talk people, and it is fun, and frustrating to see how people respond to the fast scouts. I have seen half of my team do a 180 and chase after one.

    One of the things I love to say after killing one is Pesky fly.

    But some people seem to get really bent on it....it is just a silly game people....and a free one at that.

    Poking people with a stick....and getting poked is just all part of the fun.

    That seems to be a tactic I'm only just seeing over the last week - KV-5's with full-health reserved for the end-game. Jesus... gotta admit it works, but without me using my KV-5 for pushes my teams just seem to falter.

    I wonder if it has something to do with the new reward that is a medal to anyone who stays alive for 20-matches in a row? Really, that just isn't the incentive the typical player needed. Hiding and allowing the enemy to overtake large portions of the map seems to already be most players' forte.

    I really don't mind if a couple guys from my my team try to swat those pesky t-50-2's and AMX's. Theres nothing worse than being in a TD or arty and having one jam you up and just pecking you to death with no team support. At that point I'll usually just exit the game and start a new one with a different tank.

    It's too bad my crew can't pop out of their hatches and launch a few anti-tank rockets at those SOB's when that happens :bluduh

    I dunno... not like any of us would bother to report a TD that was active up until he got jammed-against. At that point I'd assume he isn't moving 'cause he's jammed, not because he has left the game.

    Caught someone talking trash about our clan on WoT, normally I wouldn't care if it was towards me personally, but had to pick on our clan:

I'd guess you Arty'ed him in his $50 tank - check out his win ratio in, of all things, the best tier 8 premium tank in the game (he owns a Type 59 and an E-100 that he has similar scores in):

    Hmmmmmm....40ish% win rate in a Tier 8 premium. I'm going to take his opinion seriously....sure, right.
