Something interesting I found regarding the historical-ness of the tanks in WoT.

Ironic how the game's FV215b 183 is closer to the original tank design than WoT's FV215b heavy tank.

What I don't understand is why they don't just throw in the Chieftain as the t10 heavy.

Took my TOG out for a spin last night... it's an amusing tank to play, but it's sad that nobody scatters before it now, instead they all go "Yay a whale to kill!"

My TOG anthem, which I composed last night:

Drive, drive, drive your TOG,
Slowly down the hill;
Sluggishly, sluggishly, sluggishly, sluggishly,
Life is but a crawl.

My TOG game today was a Tier 7 game on Cliff. I took the incredibly obvious route... and then hung back and TDed things with that glorious 17-pdr. The other team made one half-hearted attempt to push the easy route, then died to the massive eastern flanking force that my team used.

Though we failed to secure the middle, meaning that I HAD TO TURN MY TOG AROUND to go deal with the final T29.

"...don't make me turn this TOG around!"

I still have a few hours to debate buying the Excelsior on sale. Much like how I refuse to purchase the T14 and ignored the last sale, my experiences with the pathetic gun on the Matilda IV have made me wary of premium tanks with guns that are so low-pen as to be laughable.

there are nothing ironic here... the FV215b heavy tank was a WG fantasy tank that never existed even on paper.

Don't knock the T14, got a mastery in it killing almost half the enemy team (even if mostly Matildas and M3s)...

Let`s see ..I mastered the t18, Pz II, Loltracktor..T1 not yet. I killed like 2 T82 with my Pz II by exploding their gas tanks BURN,BABY,BURN!

Im not ready to use my t82 yet with my main account, I dont look forward getting one-shotted by a kv-1 or something.

The whole thing that I posted in my sig before was my test account since I was testing something out

Moving on what happened today in my matches, I was quite surprised when I was playing tier 3 games using a tier 2 tank(PzII), the M2 Med in my team got 6 kills. He was using a derp. Well I could have taken on the M2 Med one on one by carouseling him and spray APCR at him.

The second match is where I got another top gun in Himmelsdorf, I went to the hill and this is where the fun starts: After I go down the hill, I began to shoot enemies in their rear and unfortunately for them, no one noticed me. They were like 5 of them and killed them all. After I killed them, I began to look around the corner and spotted a Pz I and Cruiser I over there and BOOM they`re dead. Ending the match with those kills


I want the Chieftain to be the new tier X tank not the 215b dammit Everytime I bought new brit heavy it was crap at first since they are support tanks that lack mobility(except the 215b). I dont play my tanks with a 50% crew.

My performance numbers have been yo-yoing around the 55.55-55.6% WR for a while, and WN7 around 1500. Too much wacky stuff.

I encountered a player last night that retreated a Hellcat in reverse full-speed into my track-broken E8, then a short time later, when they had about 5 HP, tried racing past an allied T-34-85 that was slowly turning, only to crash into it and explode. The Hellcat driver promptly blamed the other guy.

It was good for a chuckle, because the game still ended in victory.

Also, if you recall the picture of my flakbus from earlier, it now has a peace sign on the side, to further underline my oblique reference to the VW Minibus. But I'm drawing the line at putting on one of the hippier camo schemes, since I still have to look at the back of it.

Give me the keys to it and I'll grind it for you. I liked the Type 58 strangely enough, even if it does play like a plastic T-34-85.

I like the Type 58, but unlike many I played it before the T-34-85 which probably helped things.

I played it after I ground the T-34-85 when it still packed the 100mm gun (with 175 pen), and then immdeately aftewrad began grinding the T-34-85 again. The t-34-85 is indeed better but somehow it feels too...refined. I love the feeling of having a bare-bones tank and relying on your wits to prevail...at least for the 58. It's a unique experience.

dude, with a 53% win rate you're probably in the top 8-10% of all players on the NA server
like, seriously, go to your profile, ratings, and check out your position in the hall of fame

48% or somewhere around there is where the average is. yes, the pubbies really are that bad at the game.

Actually, if you hit above 52%, you're already in the top 20% of the NA server I think.



Honestly, I can't wait for this school term to end, so I can get back to destroying my impressive-looking 60-day stats. ^^;

Speaking of terrible pubs, I had a guy with a 36% winrate on my team yesterday. Claimed it was from letting his girlfriend play his account ("she sucks because she is a girl"). Proceeded to TK another guy a minute into the match "as punishment for blocking him", then got killed immediately after because he was shooting that teammate instead of the enemies shooting him. Then decided that after TK'ing and proudly declaring that he didn't care that he may have just screwed the team in chat, he was gonna report the other guy for unfair play.

Yeah, I really "wonder" where that winrate came from. It's amazing this guy hasn't decided the cleaning supplies underneath the sink look like tasty drinks yet.
