It's nice to see some one actually say something nice about the M3Lee for once. :) I agree that it's a very tuff and agonizingly slow grind to get through, but it prepares you for the future tanks and makes you think how important a turret can be. :lol:

Wow, really ARGO?

That is about as far from trolling as one can be?

I can understand someone misunderstanding that when English isn't their first language. But I thought you were. Either way, bro. That was a misunderstanding/or completely unecessary.

Q: I read somewhere that you guys are planning to make "tank & crew auctioning" sometine in the future. Could you give an ETA for it?
A: Auctions/trading have been frozen, might be even cancelled.

Kinda unfortunate.  I don't know how useful that feature would have been, really, but I was curious about how it was going to work.  Could have been a fun way to earn some gold, maybe?

You should ask that in EU Q&A section, that's where all of those Q&A's are coming from (NA Q&A topic has minimal activity).
