If the spawning interface doesn't work right, why would you expect something that doesn't apply to any other mode to actually work?

 

I mean... the spawning interface has worked in every other match Ive been in... so...

Pretty sure "leaving the battle" here means closing the window and such, not "deserting"/"Going AWOL".

Thats not how those words, in that particular formation work. "Leave the battle" means leaving the battle through the escape menu, not Alt-F4ing the game and relogging. Because the game automatically rejoins battles when you do that anyway.

I can appreciate this... if I were any good with my hands... and I knew how to paint things... Id buy one of those and build it... and then Id find a 5/2 model too. One day I want to actually model some of the tanks Ive remodeled for WoT....

Just start with a small cheap kit. Test painting techniques and what not and go from there.

Xp needle barely moved.  Teams appear to have trouble tying shoelaces.

 

I used to just say these pubbies shouldn't be trusted with shoelaces let alone internet access. I've gotten a lot worse at insults.

It was just so depresssssing.  Frontline was a comparative joy.

 

I don't have enough free XP to escape the tier V Italian tank.  I might leave it alone until I do, except I don't really want to drive the tier VI as stock because who wants to drive a stock tank?

Last week's reading, now with a 100% more Commies and Nazis!

 

We have:

 

https://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0253016924/ref=nosim/librarythin08-20

 

and

 

https://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0300189451/ref=nosim/librarythin08-20

 

The first is less a history of why Chiang lost in Manchuria but more a history of why the Communists won, with particular emphasis on how Lin Biao and his staff-trained cadres converted the Chinese Red Army into a force of regulars capable of winning set-piece assaults.

 

As for the second the author, having written mostly about the erosion of Liberal values in Germany (starting in the Second Reich), chooses to stare right into the abyss at how saturated Germany had become with magical thinking even before the Great War and how this helped to facilitate Hitler's rise to power. The book sort of ends on a weak note when the author deals with magical thinking and secret weapons as I'm not sure this guy has enough military and technical background to tell a real program from "History Channel" level myths. At the very least Kurlander seems to take alleged SS anti-gravity projects more seriously than he should; save me from Nazi UFOs.

This.  I started with an old Tamiya Panzer II model and went from there.  It cost me $10.

Lol... Oh well. Best you can do is if some company makes like a die cast model of tanks you want.

 

Also, any of you guys still playing WoT getting massive lag spikes? After almost 8 years, the game decides now is the time to give me lag spikes. Also, crashing every other game.

Certainly not crashing.  Some hiccups in Frontline, which seems to be server related because I think it affects everyone but that's all.   HOWEVER, what's different is the new graphics engine.  Are you still using the same PC from 8 years ago??  (Presumably not.)

Pop some Free XP boosters for when you're running frontlines. It will at least help a little bit.

Honestly I've hit the point where it just isn't worth the CPU cycles to try and cook up insults for the sheer levels of brute stupidity and incompetence that pubbies can, and often do. I just say

 

Pubbies will pubbie

 

and let that be the end of it. I play till I get frustrated and then I shut the game off and do something else. Sometimes it means I play all night, sometimes it means I play 2-3 games. I'm just not going to get that angry about it anymore.

Lol no... My Asus G752VS I got 1 and a half years ago. WoT was fine then until 1.0. And the damn lag spikes are annoying. Literally unplayable.

 

What's the IP address for USC? Want to do a ping test.

You could also go to a Games Workshop store if theres one in the area and ask for a painting tutorial (just dont tell them its not for any of their products :teethhappy: )

So far, I'm really liking the Battletech video game. 

 

Looking forward to seeing what they do with it.
