I had fun at least.

It might be a while before I can do that.  I still haven't touched my Lorr 40 t yet as I am needing to get a frech MT, but I have to re-grind the Tier VIII LT so I can go the Standard Line.  

 

I want to first focus on getting my WZ-132-1, K-91, Object 277, and then work towards the Object 430U.  

 

From there I am hoping I will be able to have enough free XP to get the 45TP so I can acquire the 60TP.  Then I will start re-focusing on going up the E100 line.

 

This means playing a TON of Tier VIII Premiums as well to restock up on cash reserves.

 

I think I've got that too.  Got it from the Christmas boxes last year.  I've only taken it out during front lines, enough to know I gotta lot to learn about auto loaders.

I would highly recommend checking out some YouTube vids on the Lorr 40 t.  Auto loaders are in a class all their own.  I still have quite a bit to learn about them and their play style myself. 

 

A few things I do know is they favor run-n-gun tactics heavily.  

 

Check out this review vid by Taugrim.

I'm going to see if I can find some more.  I think LemmingRush actually had a really decent one as well.

LOL, Thanks.  I believe that match was enough to convince TheIndecentCanadian to let me in the clan.  They seem to have a decent enough crew that is fairly competent.  Tooned with a few of their guys last night, and for the first time, in a long time, I actually had fun.  I'm looking forward to doing some Skirmishes with them soon as well.

Oh boy you are going to find out being in a clan is a good thing lol. In the skirmishes, tier6 or tier8 run your premium tanks. You will rake in easy fast credits at least, while learning how to work with the calls and structure. Plus when they pop clan credit boosters  = $$$$$$$$$$$$. 

 

Side note: personal reserves do NOT work in skirmishes or advances. In pubs you can stack your clan booster and you personal reserves.

Yeah I think platooning and branching out into skirmishes/clan wars netc is the only way to play. If you just play solo, as I have been, it is an exercise in rage control. It either that or I am gong to have to be a lot more Zen about the game

Platoons are nice, but clans usually have requirements that i don't meet and i don't get along with many people anyways.

I used to run my own clan.  So, yeah...it definitely is a good thing.  I tried calling Tier VI Skirmishes, but I wasn't any good at it.  I do better as a follower.  I also have done some skirmishes with a few other clans back in the day, and I really liked it.    Credit boosters from clans are pretty awesome, heck yeah.  I'll push to run my Premiums (Bromwel/Type 64...etc) in skirmishes.  

 

And yes, good tip.  I think I remember that...lol

 

I still want to get some toonie time in with you again soon.

I've never been a huge competitive type (other than with myself) but I do enjoy Skirmishes.  I am completely ignorant of actual Clan Wars.  I think they had/have a spot on the map, but I'm not sure.  I'd have to look again.

This clan is intermediate.  They require recent 1700 WN8, and they made an exception for me.  The guys I've platooned with so far are very laid back and easy to communicate with.  They haven't forced coms on me, but I like to talk and bs.  So I did when I was at home.  Their other requirements didn't seem too strict to me.  I think they'd be lucky to have someone of your caliber, if you decided to apply.  

 

I did notice that about half their clan hasn't played in the last 28 days, so looks like they need to clean some house.  Of the 20 that I saw online, a relatively small portion (5 ish?) was in discord.  Could've been because it was Wed though...IDK.  We'll see.

Of my caliber? Well now, flattery will get you nowhere.... except maybe in my pants. J/k I was actually going to make a clan lastnight but the name was taken or so i thought, thats when i learned through a ticket that even if a clan has been disbanded, the name remains locked forever and cannot be reused which imo is silly because world of tanks is the only game i've seen that does that. So i gave up on it and went back to running my pretty little skorp g.

You know me, if it ain't FREE, I ain't buying it.

 

I am going to rely solely on the Luck and Favor of Father Christmas.  I had a great time last year and got to Festive Level IX that way.  I won two different garage slots, got the L60 AND Strv Fm/21 WITH BIA FEMALE CREW + plus garage slots for those two, 3500 Gold and something like 1,250,000 credits.  I think I got an Optics Module, too.

 

I think this year is going to be even bigger for me.  Looking forward to it!  I just watched the update this morning and I was like, "What?  Didn't I just get a honker of an update yesterday?"  Then I realized, "Winter is coming."  It's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas...

 

Oh, I think that's when I won the Heavy Tank VI as well!

 

OvO

Yeah, that's how it works; I had that issue when I first went to make a clan.  Had to settle for a different name (which actually fit better the type of clan I wanted to run).

So far the small boxes have only given me decorations and small consumable items, not sure if the prizes will improve on those.

You flatter me sir, but i'm nothing special. Plus my mouth gets me into a lot of trouble. I mean if Synergy knew who i was friends with at one time, even he'd be like "Oh gawd".
