M3 Lee – Ace tanker – top Gun, high caliber without 6th sense.

Recently bought the M3 Lee after watching Quckybaby’s recent showcase.  Played it like twice, remembered why I hated it and didn’t look at it again… then today i decided to give it a go, just playing some casual low tier tanks.  Got on Fisherman’s bay with some tier 5 tanks.  Had some fun with the tank despite not having sixth sense and/or a decent crew.  Good teamwork with the T67 on the team as well.  Was kind of a nail bitter right down to the end.  We capped out rather than hunt down the arty as we were both very low on health.

T28 Prototype – Top tier just can’t be stopped.

In today’s 3-5-7 MM environment it’s always nice to get a top tier match in a tier 8 tank.  I just drove (slowly) into battle and kept pushing.

STRV S1 – Camping my way to an Ace Tanker, High Caliber

Second Ace Tanker award tonight.  This one in the STRV S1.  Camped most of the battle like a noob but was able to keep the enemy from doing much in the middle of the map.

T26E4 – Ace Tanker, High Caliber – 4k damage, 4k blocked (lots of gold spam)

Not proud of the gold spam but was excited about the 4k blocked.  Best round ever in the T26E4 SuperPershing.  Top tier match made this an exciting game.

Sad WoT news.

MarkGFL aka AgingJedi calling it quits with respect to World of Tanks content.

This is a sad development as Mark has been a great replay commentator and generally well informed and informative Content Creator for World of Tanks.

I really enjoy his work and his positive attitude.

Peace out, Mark.

Asshole of the day — Saturday 9/15/18: largeelvis

On today’s episode of Asshole of the day I bring you NA’s finest largeelvis playing the M44 tier 6 American self-propelled gun.

I was playing bottom tier heavy Russian KV-1 on Serene Coast.  I decided to lumber along and go East as most heavy tanks go.  Turns out I was basically alone though as the other heavy tanks decided to lemming train along the west flank.

Meanwhile, we had a trust KV-13 in the center area of the map.

As I moved east and north and spotted a few enemy heavy tanks coming my way: KV-85, KV-1S, and VK 45.03 with a T-43 medium trying to flank me as well.

I did the best I could against these guys while being targeted by enemy arty (the asshole in the LeFH had me in his sights).

As I am working to fight off these tanks our “friendly” arty player (largeelvis) decides to ...

9/9/18 — Today’s Asshole of the day: IceCream

Today’s asshole of the day brought to you by some sour IceCream

Playing on Himmelsdorf.  Within the first few seconds, he’s already threatening to TK a friendly tank who wanted to camp where/near he was camping.

He spent the next 7 minutes farting around, being disruptive, and preventing the other TD from contributing anything.

The game wasn’t looking too good and it seemed like we were going to have trouble, with two tanks pre-occupied with a parking lot disupte.

When he got called out for his childish behavior he had to start dogging the other team members for their poor stats.

This IceCream fellow is clearly playing a re-roll account. 6608 battles on his record in over 2 years, sporting a PR of 8003 and XVM has him nice and purple...

The return of the Asshole of the Day: AncientWarHead22

AncientWarHead22 is today’s nominee for the World of Tanks Asshole of the day.

This fine gentleman was playing arty in the M44.  I was playing my 2nd battle in one of the new Polish tanks the 25TP (which stinks, seriously, it’s horrible).

This guy starts the battle off with words of inspiration like “don’t suck”, etc, etc.  I can’t even remember what I said in reply (but I’m watching the replay right now) but when the countdown finished and we started rolling our tanks touched.  Not an intentional ram or anything, just a beginning of the battle bump.  It happens.

So this asshole decides to shoot me.

Then he proceeds to push me around (because apparently a tier 5 medium Polish tank can be pushed around by arty) and he shoots me again.

It goes without saying that the battle was a defeat...

13 Jan 18 Asshole of the Day: ThyStatPadder

Had an interesting run in with fellow tanker “ThyStatPadder” on the NA Central server this morning. (Account created: Last battle: 

This gentleman has 4 tanks in his garage, O-I Experimental, T-29, O-I, and the AMX Chasseur de char (AMX CDC) – a tier 8 premium tank.

Apparently, that’s all he plays and he’s got only about 400 battles to his name.  He actually seems to know how to play. He’s got an Ace Tanker and 1 Mark of Excellence on his CDC.

But today he wasn’t interested in playing the game.  He had entirely something else in mind.

We started the game off on a sour note with our friend in the CDC taunting the team:

“Wanna fuck with me… u fucking shit listen to me… nigga… bitch”

he shoots our Lorr. 40 t who says “ty asshat for shooting me”

ThyStatPadder “...

Asshole of the Day: 30 December 2017

Today’s asshole didn’t try to TK anyone.  Didn’t insult other players with racist slurs.

He simply drove into the water and drown himself within 10 seconds of the start of the game.

Our hero of the day is UngerechtfertiVergeltung driving the Chinese tire 8 heavy the “112”.

This guy has 19,060 battles in World of Tanks and sports a 39% win rate.  They say a bot should have a winrate in the mid 40% range.

You have to intentionally work hard to get a win rate lower than 40%.  His wn8 score was a startlingly low 34. He manages to survive about 7% of the time (I assume this is on maps without water deep enough to drown and/or no cliffs to drive over).

But it’s clear that he doesn’t always die without firing his gun...
