just started playing WOT again and looking for a clan or group

Crazy night. Got all my wins AFTER I quit tooning. Very unusual.

The_Dad : (25 April 2017 - 08:36 AM)

similar experience last night... all my wins were BEFORE I started platooning

NeoGP : (25 April 2017 - 10:25 AM)

Hey Flint!

With new mm, having good players at the top of the list seems to make a huge difference. And platooning seems to almost always put you at bottom of the list. So perhaps it makes sense that you good players are winning when playing solo.

Archaic : (25 April 2017 - 11:14 PM)

Yes, platoons seem to be pretty gimped with 3-5-7

sgt. flint : (26 April 2017 - 02:12 AM)

Hey Neo, yes i remember you. any others from the old crew still running?

NeoGP : (26 April 2017 - 10:17 AM)

not sure man..I haven't played wot in 2+ years, alot of changes throughout the 5 clans

SGrant7 : (26 April 2017 - 12:05 PM)

Haven't been on much in the last few days, but are 2 man platoons fairing much better?

bergsteiger : (26 April 2017 - 02:38 PM)

Platooning doesn't seem as big of an issue as Tier 8s. Don't think I've had a single game that I was top tier in an VIII

I've done two rooms in my home with bamboo and it worked great, Just remember to leave that space for swelling of flooring. Can't really add anything to what has already been said.

Old_Fart_63 : (28 April 2017 - 05:05 PM)

The new laminate flooring "No nails" is a big change in flooring and it looks beautiful

I will start with... This will make enough to feed 3 people for a week lol!
Time to make, 1 Hour to an hour and a half.

I start with:
2 large jars of Ragu
1 Can Hunts Fire Roasted Diced Tomatoes
1 Meduim to large white Onion
1 Green Pepper
1 or 2 small cans of Hunts Tomato Paste
1 Pound of Beef, (Usually 80/20)
1 clove of Garlic
Last but not least... Nooooodles!!! 2 to 4 pounds.

Ok Time for the Spice list lol!
Garlic Powder
Onion Powder
Kayane Pepper. (The Spelling is bad I think lol)
Chille Powder
Salt and Pepper
Italian Seasoning
Cinnamin Sugar

Start with both cans of Ragu and medium low heat. do not add any water to the jars to rinse into the sauce unless you like a watery sauce.
At the same time Start the beef. When the beef is done add into the sauce after rinsing it in a strainer.
dice half the onion and put into sauce.
Chop the green pepper into larger peices, about half a thumb size and put in.
Depending on how much Garlic you like, 1/4 to 1/2 of the clove of garlic. Chop it small and put in.
Slice the shrooms to preffered size and add.
Take the can of hunts Fire Roasted Diced Tomatoes and not only drain, but push the lid as hard as you can against the tomatoes to really squeeze the juice out. (Only do this is you like a thick sauce. If you like a runny sauce just a normal drain.)
Add 1 can of Tomato paste.

After everything is added in and stirred up nice the sauce should be starting to heat up good. Make sure it's covered with the lid at least tilting a little, just so sauce does not splatter all over the place:)

From here it gets harder to explain because I add spices by feel rather than measuring it.
First is Garlic powder. I usually only add this if I am not using fresh garlic. When I'm substituting It's probably a tablespoon of Garlic Powder.

Onion I still add onion powder even though there is fresh onion. Usually a little less than garlic powder, so about 3/4 of a tablespoon or a half a tablespoon.

Salt and Pepper... Maybe a teaspoon of salt and half a tablespoon or so of pepper.

Kayene... Be ginger with it unless you like spicy hot!!! I add for flavor not heat, so maybe a teaspoon or so.
Chille powder is about the same.
Italian Seasoning. Basically in-between the chille powder and the onion powder is where the happy medium is.

Orageno.. Just a little bit of this as well.

Cinnamin Sugar. 2 large Pinches of the stuff is all you need. You don't actually taste the cinnamin, but it helps to cut down on the acidity of the tomatoes and spice of the kayene.

Stir it all in and give it a taste and adjust spices according to your own tastebuds.

Simmer the sauce on low heat for about 45 minutes. (Start the 45 minute timer after you turn the burner on, not after everything is added.)
Best result is to have heat on the sauce for an hour.

At 45 minutes start the water for the noodles. When you add your noodles in to the water, turn off the sauce and uncover to let thicken.
When the noodles are done Rinse em good and add em to the sauce and mix thouroughly. Or serve seperatly.

I have never shared this recipe in writing before and the only 2 people that hate my Spaghetti are my mother and grandmother. Everyone else has loved it.
If anyone has any questions let me know and I will try to answer them:)
