  1. My WR for the past 80 battles or so is like 40%, even though WN8 is around 2k. Just a bad run of luck...I hope. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. After the disaster I got a little discouraged and lazy. Only have like 25K in the Leo right now. Time to get back in the saddle. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. X5 weekend means first win in every tank I care about is going to suck balls. Do one shot of damage, die, team carries, x5. 🤯

    Blocking Maps You Dislike - 1.5 Update

    Yeah, I love Ghost Town. I have had some of my best games ever on that map. I did 5.8k damage in the Pantera on Ghost Town last weekend. Paris and Ensk are good possibilities. Or maybe Mines. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I'll never understand some people

    If you go out of your way to compliment people who have good games, or to thank people who work with you in game, you'll have some pleasant interactions. But yeah, generally speaking you're right.

    I'll never understand some people

    I was playing my T30 last night in order to take advantage of the new "cash back" aspect of the On Track missions. (I played 10 battles in the T30, and on completing the 10th battle I earned something like 1.065M credits.) I'd had a few beers. And since I had moved my crew on from the T30 long ago, I had to cobble together a crew from the garage. 100%, but way less than 1 complete skill. No 6th sense. And I'd had a few beers. And the T30 was never my favorite TD to begin with, because so many tier 9s and 10s seem to be able to pen the turret roof so easily if you sit still for a second, and the gun doesn't reward snapshots. Tough combination. And did I mention that I'd had a few beers? So it was not an impressive run of battles. . But after one battle I get a PM in the garage from the Type 4 heavy who was on my team. He complains that, for a guy with 35K battles I sure don't play like I know what I'm doing. And I'm thinking, "yeah, he's not wrong. That was not a great game on my part. I feel kind of bad." But then I look at the after battle results, and that ducker did literally 0 damage. In a Type 4 heavy! I didn't do very well, but I landed at least two penetrating, full-damage hits in that battle. Did around 1500 damage. This guy did NO damage, and he's coming at me in my own garage to complain that I didn't carry him? What goes through someone's head to make them believe that even makes sense? I don't quote the Bible a lot, but I'm reminded of one here: "You hypocrite! Remove the wooden beam from your eye first; then you will see clearly to remove the splinter from your brother’s eye." I responded, "I'm drunk. What's your excuse?" He didn't answer. SMH.

    The game has improved, in many ways. That doesn't mean everything is better now, or that everything sucked back in the day. I don't think this is going to change my basic feelings about the state of the game today. It'll just be a different game mode, like FL. A chance to remember what it was like the first time I got a Kolobanov's Medal, in my SU-85 with a 107mm gun, which didn't lose camo after firing. 😁

    I'm sure that's part of it. But it'll be fun regardless.

    I'm stoked about a trip down nostalgia lane. Who's ready to fail toon a Maus with a KV-2!? Er, sorry, I meant a KV!
  10. In all seriousness, the combination of bad gun handling with the 105, meh pen and bad armor defeats me. I have to aim too long to hit and pen anything, and this is the tank that cannot afford to aim long. Some of this definitely comes down to my lack of skill. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Well there's the problem, then! I have a pretty low skill ceiling.

    7 years of WOT

    I mean, I turn 49 this year, so I think I know something about feeling 49. 🙂
  13. It's nice when it hits and pens; rolling for 350-plus in a tier 7 is good for a giggle. But the derpiness is brutal. The other night I got rushed by a T-54 coming downhill on Fjords. As if it weren't bad enough knowing I had little chance of penning him from the front (even with APCR), there was the added insult of not even being able to track him so I could try to run away, because he was moving and the gun handling was so bad.
  14. I have been using the 105 and absolutely hating it. Last night I switched to the 75mm from the Strv 74 and had a really good game. (In fact, at first I thought that that switching the gun had somehow been responsible for screwing up my XP.) I think I have to play it as a sniper schnitzel. I can't make make peek-a-boom work with a gun with a 2.9 second aim time, bad accuracy, bad reload, no armor, and bad dispersion values.
