When the T110E5 On Track was on, I tried to grind through the M103 in two weeks. I gave up after about two days.

Keep it at least marginally on topic, guys. At least I stayed tank-relevant with the whole frying pan thing.

Yeah, it figures that we'd get such a poor weekend after last weekend's equipment/x5 bonanza.

I have some hope for Thanksgiving, but it's been almost two months since a 50% off crew training/retraining sale.

^Result of a platoon with good players from the WoTLabs channel + Quox who joined later. I'm not usually one for conspiracy theories, but dear lord, when I have 3 decently skilled people in a platoon losing this much in a row due to SOMEHOW getting all the morons who can't even wipe their own backsides on my team consecutively, I come close to questioning my own rationale.

Yes, I'm not happy. No, I'm not playing any more tonight. Screw this stupid trash.

The usual complaint is that you find yourself a blue or purple diamond in a sea of blood red. "But skill-based MM is too difficult to do!"

I had a player earlier ask for four people to help defend the west line of Highway. Nine people started going that way. Even the original player ended up turning back to try to cover the city approach. We got horribly mangled.

Sacred Valley is horribly unbalanced toward the NE team, but my team decided to counter this by sending no force to the NW corner and instead hiding around the base. They died horribly. I had to resist the urge to direct-fire arty my own team in the back to make them move.

Skill-based MM is literally impossible. Why? It would fall apart within a month as all the players getting matched with people with similar stats start seeing their own stats fall (or rise, for the majority) to around 49% WR and their effic. to whatever the average is. The MM mechanic would also see this and then be blind to who is actually good and actually bad. It would be impossible to tell noobs from unicums on any basis other than battlecount which obviously doesn't mean anything.

That's why it won't work. If I'm missing some obvious statistical principle or something that invalidates all that, do inform me.

Team battle's skill based MM seems pretty good. I've been fighting people of my own level for quite some time now. Only on day one did I encounter cute little idiot teams that ran some tier 6s, but after that it was all pretty fair.

And it didn't seem to break down and just pair you with anyone yet. Time will tell.

Skill turned out to be the least of my problems tonight, as probably 2/3rds of my games had at least one player AFK on my team, often in a useful vehicle.

7 kill loss ugh... :_:
This feels like something I can really relate to....

Along with the frequent 5 kill games where my 6th kill gets stolen.

Guys , i need your opinion on the Ger TD line , i'm gonna turn them into anime character . but i don't know what kind of personality is the Marder 38t and Flakbus .

What i think is...
Marder 38t : not decide yet
Flakbus : little sis of the WTF pz4 , a junior high school student who is shy , quiet and have well developed body * hint : burst size * .
Nashorn : an Enegertic , easy going girl
Emil : A serious girl
WTF borsig : ninza girl .
WTF pz4 : big sis of the Flakbus, a prideful girl with the body of a loli
WTFe-100 : lustful , calculated onee-san , like the president in Oni ai .

Of course they will wear swimsuit )

I would say the Marder 38t would be a smart and capable yet very clumsy meganekko. It's a great machine but it drives slightly awkwardly and it's really easy to tip over or otherwise get stuck in the terrain with it (or maybe that's just me being bad, I dunno.)

Barring that, a scrappy tsundere loli eager to prove her worth.

There's also the relationship between the Pz38t, Hetzer, and Marder 38t to consider. You'd probably have to use the derp Hetzer to really emphasize the differences.

The derp Hetz is the classic bully, being able to beat up the small kids, thinks it might be able to stand up to the big kids, really can't stand up to the big kids. (Actually, the SU-85B's final gun has a good chance of going through the Hetz's front.)

I usually play all of my TDs as the shy sniper types, since all of the open-topped TDs are glass cannons. They're not really bullies that way.

Marder 38t: I haven't really had any trouble driving it. It just tends to evaporate if it gets seen by a derp gun.

Flakbus: I can't call it "little." It is HUGE. Its hitbox is HUGE. And paper.

Just failed an econ test. Noob teams are making my daily grind take too long for me to study properly, so I need to improve my seishin.
