No worries. I obviously knew you were joking and I was just going on with where the conversation took me without necessarily linking it to what's being said previously.

It's possible that you run into some events on veteran's day. I don't think NYC actually has tank museums though.

There's the Intrepid Sea Air Space Museum, which is mostly planes and the Space Shuttle Enterprise, but I think there is a T-55 lurking around there.

*sneezes* Somebody must be talking about me. Oh well back to grinding and training.

There`s tankmasters series in Philippines and whoa 4 PVP teams is in the finalist.

Just to let you guys know, PVP is one of the best clans in Asia server because of their teamwork, comms w/mic and coordination. They own 5 provinces in global map and has 5040 gold income. They have strict requirements(for applicants and those who are interested) and standards.

Sci-Fi/comic book conventions made me the manly man I am today (although, those were all in the 80s:P). Strictly anime conventions are a relatively new thing. Back then, if you wanted anime related stuff, you went to the sci-fi/comic book conventions.

Expect to see me in the game sometime this weekend.

Yeah I guess anime cons outside of Japan are probably not poisonous enough for my tastes. From the pictures I've seen, too many innocent people dressing up as Naruto characters.

The 80's looks like a good time. Seems like it's far away but not really because most of the stuff that matter were still there. I never got it experience it though.

I sat in a movie theater with several of my friends and watched Hasbro kill off a bunch of Transformers...

here's a tank-related sight that popped up on youtube yesterday:

Sorry; dynamic content not loaded. Reload?

Watch this if you want to see an S-tank get shot at with tank guns, driven over live antitank mines, get strafed by jets, subjected to the shockwave from a simulated tactical nuke, get shelled with artillery and finally set on fire with napalm. All while commentated by an incredibly dry narrator in nasal Swedish (English captions also available).

The S-tank was Swedish.

However, a few Japanese models used adjustable suspension like the S-tank does, including the tank that was brought to the first GuP event at Ooarai.

Edited to add:

I've turned blue!

Blooded the Nashorn with a 5-kill game, 3000 damage, 21 shots, 16 hits, 15 pens on El Halluf, 9 enemies damaged. Yes, the lack of gun depression is a serious health hazard. On the bright side its general road handling is better than the Dicker Max's.

Three of my four kills were on players that did zero damage to anyone in return. I suppose I should feel bad for picking on the low-hanging fruit, but your reaction to taking long-range sniper fire on El Halluf in most cases should not be to charge forward into the valley.

I also have 10 sets of binoculars now and 28 camo nets. I'll build up a bit more cash over the weekend and work on more general equipment like rammers and whatnot... first I have to plan out my future tech tree approaches.

Only the tanks starting from Type 74 had such suspensions.

Alongside 6 million credits worth of equipment, I also bought an IS-6, since it was 15% off. I heard that it's one of the favorite stat-padding tanks for unicums. I still have to get used to the armor though, which I've gotten snapshot penned by enemy medium tanks from the front. The armor is all about angling perfectly and sidescraping; by itself, it's actually really thin and easy to pen.

I ran into Hei_ during a random pub match and we got together in an unlikely platoon after that. He was grinding credits in the IS-6, so I followed behind him in my IS-6. Hei_ is a really good player who has strong map awareness and a knack for angling well. Go plat with him whenever you get the chance.

*Yawn* Won the first game I played today but lost every single one after that. winrate already went down 0.1%. Good thing I don't care about that anymore. From now on nothing but base camping and kill stealing to get that idiotic 250k credit bonus.

I just watched a StuG blow through its entire ammo load keeping a VK3001H tracked for zero damage. When an arty arrived to help flank the VK, the StuG did not change position despite the VK shifting targets.

Fortunately these guys were on the other team.

...because our SPGs just sat there and watched this happen.

Record-breaking night



I don't think I have ever done worse than this excluding my first 2 weeks in the game at tier 1-3.

I kinda feel bad that Tempester was with me the whole time Sorry~

The IS-6 is the bane of my existence from tier 6 to 9. It seems to bounce everything that isn't sent at it in perfect perpendicular fashion. It's essentially the Type 59 of heavy tanks.

From what I hear, if you're in a tall tank, shoot the flat plate above the gun, which is very thin and easy to overmatch. Otherwise you gotta avoid the spaced armor it seems like. >_<

I always crushed IS-6s with my Tiger II and VK 45.02 (P) Ausf. A, but then I use GERMAN STEEL.
