Yea that sucks. Although I created the best stuck ever a couple of weeks ago. me and my buddy were in scouts in a heavy tank battle (we were Pz III's). On the map with the two bridges and the island in the middle. We managed to block their VK4502 Ausf B on the bridge.
On a similar note, I found myself in a face off with an IS4 in my Tiger. Obviously I wasn't going to win that, but I couldn't run away, so I ended up pinning the guy against a building. Amazingly for me, he wasn't able to get shots off on me so close, and a few of my teammates arrived and finished him off. I'm sure he was pissed.
On other note, at Ensk when i try to get into position at 3 intersection road at west side road with my 704 before i even get there an enemy IS7 came and rush to my face and i just like with him and he die instantly with 3 volley from my 704, another 704 and T30 (Imagine what will happen to Maus with that firepower ) He then rage at me the whole match pretty funny.

It's pretty funny when people start ranting when you completely owned them cos of them thinking they can take the world alone with their tier IX or X tank. But it's really bullshit when your tier VIII, IX or X gets owned out of nowhere by arty.
It's not. Arty is so easy to use. There is NO game where I haven't seen arty have 0 kills.
I've actually seen both sides of that argument. being an SU-14 driver, I've killed KTs in one hit when I smack em up side the turret (literally), and yet there have been occasions where I did not get a single kill when a Jtiger snipes me from across the map. I've seen other spg drivers get skunked in a battle too, especially when a T-54 or something rushes them with an arty watching over their shoulder. either the rusher gets the arty or said arty gets smacked by some HE from above.
Well then you haven't been looking very hard at all. SPGs don't get on average any more kills than anyone else. I see SPGs get 0 kills all the damn time, may even more than they score 1 or more kills.It's not. Arty is so easy to use. There is NO game where I haven't seen arty have 0 kills.
Arty is already being nerf twice and as a su-14 driver it only increase time shell travel, aim time and more random in shell hitting the circle or completely miss the circle but now at least it cant hit fast moving target unless you move predictably and camping tank is much easier to hit that moving ones. Maybe they should increase the sight on arty shell so they see its coming, i see the shell but sometimes have not enough time to react.
Well if you could dodge arty it would make it rather useless. However I think the accuracy and a global penetration nerf is needed.
Honestly I'd rather Artillery lost the ability to actually damage the hull of enemy tanks and just became a dedicated tracking/module breaking unit, with the higher levels having better blast radii and module damage chances. At the moment Arty punches vastly above its tier weight, and things like company battles are starting to make that very important (although granted those are broken as hell at the moment).
God damnit, got so close to beating 80k credits in a battle.
Using what tank, Afoxi? I'm farming using top IS with 100mm, never got more than 46k or so. This is with premium.
Knowing Afoxi some sort of tier XI behemoth
Knife King of Doltland
I'm not surprised. Anything within three feet of you seems to end up full of knife shaped holes.
I finally made up my mind to join the game but the guides just make me dizzy -_-"
I hope I can get it right and hopefully will meet some of you in battle :P
If you cannot associate it with Heavy Metal then it is not WarHammer
My WarHammer 40000 Music Video v.1
Heh guides, you don't need them. Jump in a tank and shoot at stuff. Asks questions about what's best to shoot at, where and with what gun and ammo type to further enhance your ability to shoot at stuff.
Pffft guides, I scoff at them.
My personal record is 80,761 credits with 2,265 exp. I was so close to beat it a few times (once with KV-2! ) but so far , no dice ;/
On the other hand I broke my record for the least XP in an active match. 3.
That which does not kill us, makes us stranger.
I now have the Panzer 4 with the top 75 cannon, I feel like a king!
Have 1,107 xp with MS1
My highest personal record is 2,374 xp on my T32 but for credits my Object 704 can get me 82k
And just got Burda's Medal aka Arty killer
I'm still trying to beat my Churchills xp record of around 2600, and this was before the doubling or anything, also the round where my churchill got a top gun XD
Bah, my top is 2,236. That's with a King Tiger too.
oh, is everyone busy showing their epeen?
(my highest EXP is largely pathetic. I'm too aggressive for my own good)
Tell us what it is, so I can feel like I'm better than you.oh, is everyone busy showing their epeen?

So, the servers are being split on Monday 17th.
I think i'm gonna go EU, haven't had carzy low ping in a long time so that should be nice
So we will loose all the achievements etc ?
I am currently with a T-46 with Auto and am soo close to a T-28
Nashnir, not to sound rude or so, but loosing your t46 isn't that bad when the hardwipe comes.. I'll loose all my Tier VIII's (4) on both accounts plus some tier VI, V and IV's.. I really would have hoped for a softwipe; not hardwipe..
A softwipe would be nonsensical. How long have you been receiving free daily gold? How much has that shot forth your advancement? How many of your Tier VIIIs are only because of free premium and free XP conversion?
Hell, the fact that you have two accounts to exploit the daily gold income is a perfect example of why it needs to happen.
Well I share 2 accounts with a good friend of mine, we both play a lot.
Patch notes are up!
Massive Object 212 repair cost increase, T-54 cost increase, T-14 and Stug matchmaking love.

100% cost increase for Object 212 O.O. Was it thát cheap?
They've certainly taken the nerfbat to the thing.
Hmmm Panther buffs, I don't have one but I love seeing my faction getting beefed up while the Russian equivalents get bitch slapped.
I miss T54 nerfs though... That thing is so unstoppable.
Thank god is object 212 (arty) that got 100% repair (but i think is miss typo) not object 704 (TD) . I mean 704 already cost 16k average to repair increase 100% will make like 32k O.o
look like server split is tomorrow .

American lvl 16
British lvl 14
how the hell did you manage that?
ohhhhhOur game cluster is being divided into two parts: North American and European groups of servers. And World of Tanks Developers Team is glad to announce that the amount of Experience received for the battle is five-times increased till the end of 19 January, 2011. We know that you have been waiting for a soft wipe, so, this is a small compensation.
About that crazy score:
Battle: El Halluf 17. siječnja 2011. 20:41:55 PM
Received Experience: 2.952, credits: 228.237
I do love the devs right now, also my gun fires the moment i click the mouse
It didnt read that about the xp boost I thought its was a bug or something. Well at least im only 30k from the Pershing.
Battle: Lakeville 17. siječnja 2011. 20:51:22 PM
Received Experience: 13.814 (doubled for the first battle each day), credits: 242.452
Jagdtiger here i come
Finally no more lag and fun xp, gonna grind to Panther 2 on my friends account and get something fun on mine too, IS4 or Vk4502 maybe, idk yet.
The 5x XP and credits is epic. Got myself like 100k xp on my KT today, and buying the Ausf B now.
Just got the Jagdtiger, it's nice, need more time to really judge, now i need another 40k to get the 704, also two million credits to actually buy it, but that's not a problem, i made 3 million tonight
Ive just got my Pershing, im 40k from the IS7 and im working on getting the t-54 good times.
...so close to unlocking every German tank.
