Only if the tank collecter in you needs to have the 215b. Given your dislike of the Conq... I dont know if the 215b is a tank you would want to play otherwise.

So, I was thinking about Australia for my AH Diamond Dynasty. The fact that the American Rebellion was defeated means that there is no reason to establish a penal colony all the way in Australia. We actually had a short discussion about this recently:

 

 

So, in between developing North America and trying to hold onto Bengal, seems like Australia's fate will be in other hands. This will be interesting to write about....

 

 

The French might have had an interest in Australia if the British had not just moved in:

There is a suburb in NSW named after him, La Perouse.

I don't hate it, it just didn't really click with me at the time. I've enjoyed it far more the last few times I played it, because I was giving zero f*cks and spamming APCR. Plus, I'm a collector who actually plays British tanks, so I can't pass up the chance to get the FV215b.

Coincidentally, some of the background for Diamond Dynasty I just finished:

 

"Lamarck in particular became a celebrity as his writings about the fauna of La Pérouse’s Land were incorporated into theories of racial supremacy. Lamarck’s idea that the harsh environment of La Pérouse’s Land had bred the large number of dangerous (poisonous, venomous, etc.) animals and plants there, an early example of environmental breeding, was used by Louis XVI to advocate a harsh training regime for French soldiers (and as an excuse to crack down domestically). This would be one of the cornerstones of Lamarckism, the state ideology of the Holy French Empire"


Making proper use of all the Australia jokes while building up the background for Britannia-Draka Holy French Empire. I haven't figured out if I would let France keep the colony, or it dies out and so others take control while France is busy with digesting its gains.

 

Side note: Louis XVI here is not our Louis XVI, but the father.

Gain 50k XP as top XP on your team, win or loss, counts boosters and first wins of the day. You have until 0420PT September 1st.

 

EDIT: Was discussing some WoT console stuff on one of the discord servers I frequent... went and looked at the premiums the have and became upset again... there are so many of them that I would buy in a heartbeat:

 

Cromwell Snakebite (provided it was a medium and not a light tank)

Cromwell Knight

Huntsman Centurion

Vindicator Charioteer

Chieftain/T95

M51 Super Sherman (their name, not mine)

 

Really upsetting what they can buy over there that we cant, despite being the "same" game.

Thanks man. Hmm... Top of team in XP. At least I don't have to win. Seems doable as I have a boat load of boosters despite how little I play.

 

As for the prems, just look at the VC tanks. Available on ALL platforms. Not for US, EU and RU servers PC.

I think this goes back to the discussion we had about wanting more customization for our tanks. Most of those are simple reskins that would be great if they were sold as camouflage options.

 

Also, current listening:

I don't know what any of those are, but I would really like the Firefly with bolted on track armour ("Boilermaker"?)

A loooong time ago.  Back in the first "design your tank" contest that Wargaming made.

I've pretty sure that most prosecutors would squeal with delight like schoolchildren if video surfaced of a defendant willingly discarding their own carefully constructed alibi and literally saying "Yep, I did the thing I am accused of, and for the exact reason that they say I did it!" Televised video seen by millions? Why, any self-respecting prosecutor might faint... and any self-respecting defense attorney would run screaming for the hills.

 

I mean, the only possible defenses against that video are variations on "The defendant cannot be trusted." "My client is a mentally ill dullard with the intellect of a small child. He didn't mean what he said, he was just trying to garner attention" and "Despite being the President of the United States, my client should not be taken at his word". Saying that you can't be trusted and certainly shouldn't be taken at your word tends to poke all kinds of holes in virtually any other defense you might try to offer.

 

Then again, there is another, infinitely more concerning defense that could be presented: "As POTUS, Trump is above the law" We've already seen some Trump apologists/defenders going down this route. Most notably and hilariously, Newt Gingrich (who during his time in Congress led the charge on impeaching Clinton) actually suggested that whomever holds the office of POTUS is above the law.
 

 

Yeah.  Sadly we're not dealing with a normal court, where things like facts and laws matter, and the jury has laws explained in detail, and bad-faith and fallacious arguments pointed out to them. 

 

We're dealing with the court of partisan opinion.

Same here. I have a Conqueror collecting dust. I do like it but it is hard to play what essentially is a support heavy in WoT's current potato filled teams awaiting to be fermented into vodka.

Well, if you're on in like two or three hours, I wouldn't mind to platoon.

Apparently it wasn't showing the "Do 50000 damage to battleships with torpedoes" progress bar. I had to do a repair on the client for it to show up.

 

That sucks.  Hope that didn't put a giant dent in your ability to finish it.  Although it's probably easier in Random, given the higher target count and HP total on the red side in each battle. 

 

I didn't realize before that the blueprints are issued for the 3rd mission in each chain, and not the 5th, so there's a bit let pressure to do the entire chain. 

 

In an odd development, after struggling to get the 100k and 2 Kills in a single battle for a long time... I fired up the game today and immediately hit those numbers again in my first battle, also in the Bismark.  That ship is wicked even stock.

Goddamnit I hate the Wargamming.net "Game Center" I can't figure out exactly why but whenever I use it there is a near 50/50 chance it kills my network. It's utterly bizarre.

Is it terrible that I'm not all that interested in actually playing the British battleships? I'll probably buy Dreadnought  (Even though I don't see her being better than the current king of T3 seal clubbing, Fat Albert) when it becomes available, and I might get Nelson, but I don't see anything on offer in the British BBs that the other lines don't do just as well if not better. High survivability brawlers? German BBs. Long range? Japanese BBs. Average at everything and therefore kinda 'meh'? US BBs. Sneaky and shooty? Any of the cruisers.

 

Even the tier 10 kinda seems to have an identity crisis between being Montana and Kurfurst. You have 12x16inch (IE basically Montana) or 8x18inch. Either way you have a very similar protection scheme to Montana. Compared to Kurfurst, I'm having a hard time imagining that the 18inch guns will be so much better than the 17inch guns to be worth giving up so much survivability and losing 4 guns worth of broadside weight. Just not seeing it.

It's not terrible.  I'm going to mess with them in PTS before I heavily invest -- but if I don't do the missions now and get the lower tiers free, I can't go back and do the missions later if I decide I like the line.
