    Oh. Yeah, that was damned lucky. By that time, luckily, his team had moved up to get side-shots on them, or he would have been dead.

    Only miss-play I saw on the hell cat replay was running across the center. His team has won North and South when he started to move. You can tell by looking at the map that they had 8 unspotted tanks as he started to make his move across mid with the E25 getting lit as he started to move up. At that point in the game if they haven't been spotted, it is safe to assume that they are camping on the hill. Rest of it was well done, but he got really lucky on the mid cross

    You guys get to use string? On the High Plains we're stuck with the Pony Express. The wind jusst blows the string away.

    Sherman tanks of the British 8th Armoured Brigade (possibly 4th/7th Royal Dragoon Guards) and a Chevrolet truck leading ambulances through Amsterdamerstraße in Kevelaer, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany.
    4 March 1945.

    Local 17 year old Kevelaer eye-witness, Heinz van Lipzig,
    "My father wanted to buy a caravan and horse to move away from home and the fighting, but I was able to talk him out of this idea by telling him that the end could not be far away. I did not know what was to happen a few days later. On the morning of the 3rd March 1945 I woke up to find myself surrounded by English soldiers. The war was over, at least for my family and me."
    "Armed with machine guns mounted on a pram the soldiers made their way through Kevelaer – the first town they had found which was reasonably intact. Soon the people of Kevelaer put out the white flags and tried to adapt to the new situation. A camp for displaced persons, mainly Dutch, French and Italian was set up. They were housed in tents, hotels and churches and my job was to find plates and cutlery for them. I remember one morning I went into a bombed hotel which had a bowling club. Hearing shots I was curious to find out what was going on. Two English soldiers were enjoying themselves playing 'bowls' in their own way – namely firing pistols at the pins!"

    Italian. I think it's a tip of the hat to the new tank line.

    I'm not sure your team even showed up to play. The rule only works for two teams of 15 people who are awake, and at their keyboards & mouses/mices. :dunno

    :D

    All I know is that I showed my team where all the opposing team's tanks were, and they failed to do their part. :dirtdog
    Well, except for the Matilda who killed the Chi-Ha that killed me :lol3

    Need some WOT advice here. Got the M103 purchased. Going to stick the female crew I got as part of the Christmas event shindig in the tank. They have BIA already and 2 un named perks, so in effect a 3 perk crew. I have a couple other crews approaching completion of their 3rd perk but do not want to wait to use one of them. Been holding off on going into tier 9 in both Russ and US lines until I have a 3 perk crew ready. I figure going in that high with less than 3 perks would just increase frustration with the game.

    I already chose 6th sense for the commander I am leaning towards mentor as well for her third perk. Need to know what would be a better choice if any.
    What 2 perks should I choose for the remaining crew? I tend to think that repairs and firefighting might be a good idea for a couple, particularly the loaders. I would like to know your thoughts as to what I should pick for their second and third perk on each position.

    Thanks in advance

    6th sense, repairs for commander, repairs first on rest of crew then smooth ride, snap shot, safe stowage and radio operator view range perk.
