misspelling of the pazkf alpha on players profile on site. PzV_PzIV_ausf_Alfa when the name is clicked the spelling on the description page is properly spelt but no on players profile from site.

Found an untranslated string in the Clan Wars (ultimate conquest) interface: linky (warning, russian letters)

This is something I see quite often, really a minor grammatical issue.
The latest instance was today in the announcement about the server
downtime for the upcoming .0.6.5 patch:
"Tier 9 American medium tank M26 Pershing will be replaced for M46 Patton."
Which should more properly read "Tier 9 American medium tank M26 Pershing will be replaced with the M46 Patton."

Overlord and other devs,

Ever since the official release, you somehow misspelled the name of one of the most important - and strongest - tanks in the game. Currently, the Loltraktor is referred as Leichtetraktor, when the correct is Leichtraktor (Or Wallachia's Bathtub, but I doubt you'd even consider this one).

Please, my heart bleeds whenever I see such typo. I beg you to fix it.

Thankies,

Hello, I have a suggestion:

If you could add accents to the tank lines, German accent to german tanks, russian to russian tanks, perhaps a southern to american tanks (or leave american as it was before the patch) that would add fun and enjoyment. I love the accents other games give to the different nationalities.

Thanks

The SU-26's 1930 122mm howitzer has 2 instances of High explosive ammunition in it's characteristics, is that meant to be armour piercing? :Smile-hiding:

In the picture above, shouldn't it be 12.8 since we use the decimal rather than the comma as opposed to in russia?

No, isn't it 128 millimeters in 12.8 centimeters?  So it is all the same? :Smile-bajan2:

In 7.0, the text for a tank still in battle went from "In Battle" to "This Tanks is In Battle" or something similar. The problem is that the latter no longer properly fits in the garage icon for the tank. Don't have a screenshot sadly, but it should be rather easy to see what I'm talking about.

. as i remember it, the error was: " Artillery can guess your position when you FELL trees..." something like that. fell should be changed to knock down or tip over.


In fact they are using the correct term ("fell") for knocking trees over or cutting them down. there is nothing grammatically wrong with that wording at all, it just sounds very odd, lol.

Taken from Dictionary.com :

Fell
verb (used with object)
1. to knock, strike, shoot, or cut down; cause to fall: to fell a moose; to fell a tree.


Gotta love messed up english words  :P

The usage of the word "Fell" as in a tree that has been knocked over is used correctly as the quoted person said, the term Felling a tree is an old way of saying it and not used by many other than those older folks in the logging industry or farmers/ranchers ^.^

"Armour" instead of "armor" if the system language is set to a non-U.S. English (e.g. UK/Canadian)?

the VK4502(P) aufs. B is VK4502P in game over tank display, Prior to 7.2 it would correctly display VK4502B when directly pointing the tank
