Nice equipment you had there. Would be a shame if something happened to it.

I should get back to nature, too.  You know, like going to a shop for groceries instead of the computer.  Maybe a condo in the woods that doesn't even have a health club or restaurant attached.  Buy a car with only two cup holders or something.

If anyone is doing 5x this weekend, let me know.  I have 9 tier 9's to grind and am losing my sanity playing solo.  People are dying so fast in these games that they're over in the first 3 mins.

Apparently I'm still rusty at tanks.  I had a SIMP guy go off on me in a match for like 5 mins claiming that I bought my account.

Bought the T-40 Skoda last night.... was charged for a T34.  Now I get to wait 3-5 days for customer service to fix this shit. 

I don't know what I was thinking giving another cent to WG.

I switched over to Armored Warfare for a week or so, then started playing D3 again with a buddy. I haven't logged in to WoT in a couple of weeks. Every time I think about doing so I get irrationally angry, so it will probably be a bit longer before I wade back into the filth.

I did the same a month ago and played HOTS.  I found that HOTS pissed me off more than WoT, so I'm back. 

How's that for a statement about HOTS?

So while I was partaking in my usual stat destroying weekend tanking session (including losing 10 in a row in T8 tanks) the transformer supplying power to my house decided to blow a fuse reducing power to a brown out state before eventually shutting down completely. Ohhhhh, I see.

Ended up going 3 - 19 in T8s to get the 2 wins* needed to unlock the rental IS-7. Then I found out you need to bring 3 separate tanks to play Rampage so I had to bring the rental IS-7 and 2 T8s. We still managed to win no thanks to me (2nd to last on team). No way I'm going to try for the 10 wins needed to unlock all 3 rental thanks.

* I had to redo it today cause the power outage yesterday stopped me at 1 win

Not sure how many have played the Czech line, but I'm up to the tier 7 now and they're VERY mediocre.  Not only that, but I managed a 3850 damage, 6 kill game in the tier 7 34/100 and that was only a first class.  Ace tanker is going to be a bitch.

I've only gotten to tier 6 myself and I have to agree with you, although I do find the T6 tank to be pretty fun with the auto loader.  I feel it needs either one more round in the clip or slightly more damage per round.  Still, it's very effective when facing tanks of T6 or lower and does ok against some T7's.  In 42 games I have 61 kills, though I only have a 43% win rate in it.

I'm finding the same with Warships - over Christmas they upped the number of missions, then they threw more at us (on the Asia server) to earn pearls for the Kamikaze, then they threw the Emden missions at us. In the end I burnt out but got the Kamikaze and Emden (the latter they messed up our missions and gave it to us after 10 kills. Now I just don't feel like playing anymore.

I keep trying to go back to WoT but Armoured Warfare has ruined WoT for me. It just feels smoother and easier to get into and the PvE missions are just what I need if I feel like having fun rather than being competitive. It's a nice balance. I can't put my finger on what AW does that WoT fails at though.

It's funny how different the playerbase between the two games is. In WoT I'd often get brewed-up because I was too aggressive and charged in stupidly, finding myself exposed and victim to several higher-tier rounds or a lucky ammo rack.

In Armored Warfare I'm often too passive, waiting back while the team charges in and spots/ accrues kills while taking a beating. I'll end with 70% HP or better but do worse for it.

Tried the game again after hearing about the new patch with improved sound and physics. Sound is now awesome, haven't yet seen any tanks flipping over yet.  Rest is still the same game.

Doing J turns is pretty fun. I dig the new physics.  Agree on the sound. Didn't mod it at all since I like what they've done.

They build up that they are going to give a "special gift" to those who have been in the game for over 5 years during this Anniversary special. Turns out it is an.....LTP (which everyone ELSE also gets). They gave one of those out for the anniversary THREE YEARS AGO. And they give the mini-maus to the EU server instead.

Ah, Wargaming, always so fucking clueless.

Ive not reinstalled WOT since my new SSD C drive and Windows 10 update a while back.

I have 5k+ gold sat on my account, but never the will to play it for more than a few games. (Same with Armored Warfare, i need to stop buying f2p tank stuff).  This thread isnt drawing me back.

I got a good solid 5 years out of the game, but stopped playing last December when I realized that I was only logging in to run doubles in lines I wasn't the least bit interested in.  I left it installed in case I got the itch to play again.  I patched up when they did the physics update a couple weeks ago but while the changes were ok, I just couldn't be bothered to play enough to get decent at the game again so I uninstalled.
