Although with D3 coming out in a few days, I'm putting that off b/c I dont want to join a clan and then disappear for a few months (assuming D3 will hold my interest for awhile). Its already bad enough I bought warlock yesterday and lost 5 hours of my life to "just one more turn".
So funny, my thought process is identical about that after I realized that my comp should handle D III/MP3 as it is.

Anyone else get post game grief? Over the past week or so, I had 3 instances in which after game, players would talk trash and ignore me immediately after so that I can't "retaliate", all 3 did that. Usually say shit about me and my clan, one guy threw a couple insults my way and made that middle finger sign using characters.

I actually had a few good runs yesterday so I finished off my x5s pretty quickly.

Some I just can't get one for the life of me (KV-2 for example) so I just said fuck it.

As much as I dislike playing arty, I'm pondering whether to drop free exp just to test out the 2nd gun on the S-51. The first one does about 100-400 damage, average 250 on tier 10 (Is-4) hits.

For some reason I thought it ran until the 14th. So I went to buy more modules this morning for my eventual push to the Patton. They are full price again :(
yeah didn't get a chance to buy the s-51 yesterday, oh well.

I always went to the east side (the side nobody ever goes to on my team), didn't even realize there was a hill there.

Not to mention the city almost always turns into a kill zone for arty + some big TDs. Never had a good experience there unless its a wolfpack of mediums that just swarm the place.

Ahahahaha oh god, noobs. I held the southern pass in arctic region by myself (spawned north). I was in an IS-3 vs IS-3, Panther, VK3601, KV-2 derp, and T-150. One tier4 arty lobbed random shells at me. I fought them from the lower corner figuring that arty wasn't a big deal. They didn't try to advance on me till I'd killed 3 of them :D Fucking KV though... he derped me for like 30-40% of my life when I was hull down :( The enemy IS-3 never got a shot on me. I fucked his shit up hardcore. He tried to get hull down when he realized I'm awesome but I tore his cmdr's hatch a new one.

One guy on our team was complaining that the chance to win (XVM) was like 20% when the game started. I guess when 14 tanks rush one way and 1 tank solos 5 enemies to win the other flank, even shit pubbies can win.

Great game. I've never made 149k before. I didn't really do anything awesome, but wave after wave of dumbasses just put themselves in front of my gun.

7 kills

That map, taking the left hill increase your teams chance of winning because arty can't hit behind the hill on top and from there you can cover mid and if you have spotters, cover the far hill on the right. Also cover the city obviously, and anyone who wants to push has to go up hill and are vulnerable to your team as they come up.

The lorraine is just starting to be decent with the second 90mm, tracks and at least 1 engine upgrade.
Before that it is a dead horse.

Lulz, I didn't even pay attention to the second half of the sentence.

I'm starting to think I need to find a clan to run with. Endless pub battles is getting frustrated, not to mention hurting my win rate (down to 51%). Although, the "efficiency calculator" still claims I'm in the top 3% of players...
