Default World of Tanks

anyone else playing this? I got a bonus code for it when I bought my GTX 770 and I've gotten hooked. In-game name is "Mobiius". If anyone else is into this, let's platoon. I have up to Tier6 tanks to run; I can run a Tier7 if necessary, just have to buy it.

I have loaded the XVM mod, pretty cool, I like it. And I now understand why so many players want to hunt tanks instead of doing whatever it takes to win the mission (read: cap when you can cap) - because they're chasing XVM stats.

Nice one. I wish I had known about enabling replays when I got the last stand medal with a Marder III. 7 kills, Top Gun, Sniper, Ace Tanker, Sharpshooter, Master gunner, that last stand medal I can't remember the name of, base defender, and maybe some others.

Yeah enable replays man, youll get lots of fun games.

Personally i find the game a lot more fun platooning though. At this point i dont even bother playing it on my own. Teams are very bad.

I'm going to check this out once I get my computer setup again.

There is a HUGE thread about it over on the Grassroots Motorsports forum.

I havent played wot in a long time. The devs are getting too greedy and are breaking the game. Something iv'e been playing a lot is Armored Warfare.

<p>that is one downside of the &quot;free to play&quot; games. when tf2 went to that style of purchasing, the game became unplayable to me. ive found wargaming does a pretty dam good job of keeping it even. i only just started using gold ammo in the last week(call me a bitch) because i have 3 million plus credits and im content on playing the few tanks ive named above and building crew skill. in my defense i usually only use it when im out tier-ed. some people get so bent over gold ammo in game.</p>

Gold ammo is pay to win with a different currency.. doesnt make it any less broken.

Buy premium account, buy credit packs and spam gold at everything and watch your stats increase.

Ah your max tier is a T7. That explains it lol. Just wait till tier 10 when it's costing you 30k to repair your tank and another 25k on ammo.

At around tier 8 you gotta have 50-55% w/l ratio and at least 1500 average damage per battle to balance out. Tier 9 is where you start losing about 5k on average. Tier 10 you lose credits unless you get out unscratched and 100% hit and penetration ratio. And this is coming from someone with stats well above good.
