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...

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...

Assholes of the day: 28 Dec 2017 (double entry)

Two assholes. One day. Same match.

The first guy named NOLA_Taints, driving an M12, was easy to spot as a prospective asshole of the day candidate.  He started the match off complaining about how people are stupid and bad players.  Just a toxic player right from the start.

A second fellow named Frostfly, in a KV-122, chipped in to echo the comments made by the M12.

The match did not go well and our team was quickly eliminated leaving me in the STRV S1 and two artillery to fight off a number of enemy tanks.

We held off as best we could but the S1 is not a mobile front line skirmishing vehicle and I had trouble deciding how to take on a full health t30 and unspotted light tank and the two SPGs that were firing on me every time i got spotted.

At any rate, I didn’t make it...

ASSHOLE OF THE DAY: 25 DEC 2017

Playing on Airfield, I took up a position and was engaging enemy tanks for at least 45 seconds to a minute when a “friendly” guy in the new VK 168.01 Mauerbrecher (Wall breaker?)  decided that he’d had enough of me and literally drove up and pushed me out of the way so he could die and block the spot.  Thanks goes out to NA player JoshC2 of the [NASF] clan. What a great team player.

I loved his comment to me as well, JoshC2[NASF] “Well, don’t need to drive up infront (sic) of me like you’re the only front line tank.”  Forgetting that I was almost a minute ahead of him when he literally came up and pushed me out of his way.

JoshC2 is a self entitled asshole and wins the award of asshole of the day for Christmas!!
