So...did the NA server ever come back up yesterday evening? Granted that I was more concerned with ships than tanks so it wasn't a great hardship for me.

 

 

I believe the answer was no.  I was able to play a couple games this morning, though.

So instead of Abrams burnt out at the side of the road in what ever militant conflict happens next in the region it will be export T-90s instead.

They're trying that again? Maybe they'll get along better this time :trollface:.

 

On the early Fallouts, yeah it could only be "Gr1mD4rk bro" to people that have never played it.  I've honestly never played New Vegas or 4, I tried 3 when it came out and could just never get into it for some reason.  Loved the first 2 though, as well as Fallout Tactics.

Frankly, Fallout games were the only post apocalyptic games I enjoyed specifically because they never took themselves too seriously.

Useful, useless, it's all just perception, man. 

 

Welcome to 2018, the P in POTUS stands for "postmodern".

And to think, all it cost for Trump to make the US look like fools, hand the North Koreans a diplomatic victory and imperil the US alliance with South Korea and Japan (and pretty much everyone else) is the CCP paying him $500 million and Kim dangling a Trump Tower Pyongyang in front of him. Pretty damn cheap in geopolitical terms.

That's kind of why I couldn't get into them.

At least with elder scrolls the goofiness isn't implied, you just kind of stumble across it randomly, usually in glitches. Which is hilarious.

Man, I wish I could repeat the experience of playing Morrowind for the first time.  I only played it once, but I did play it all the way through, and it was just awesome.

Food Safety note.

 

If you've bought precut melon recently, check for recall details, there's another salmonella incident.   Hitting Walmart, Kroger, and maybe Trader Joe's so far.

 

In general, wash melons thoroughly before cutting them, anything on the surface will be dragged into the flesh by the knife.

More likely is Claus doesnt understand how spotting actually works. Good old click bait Kellerman.

 

Playing around with WoT Info's camo calculator, the tier 9 263 has to be within 214m to spot the 103-0 when not under a camo net, or with in 167m when it is. The Lowe has to be within 235m when not under a camo net, or 183m when under a camo net. And this is assuming 100% crews, and no skills, with a living Commander. The 263 was never going to spot him as he was always atleast 220 meters away. The Lowe could have spotted him, but we have no way of knowing what the Lowes crew situation is, he coudl ahve a dead Commander or just not be running a 100% crew with skills and equipment. Given that the Lowe didnt spot him, its likely that he wasn fully decked out.

Even after firing like he did?

For the shot against the 263 after it left the cap: he takes the shot after the 263's vision port is behind the tree, meaning hes technically obscured from the 263's vision for the purposes of spotting checks.

 

For the last shot against the Lowe, the bushes provide 30% of their maximum value (for firing from within 15m (Claus is wrong here too, as he claims that bushes within 15m lose all concealment value)), and again depends on the crew state of the Lowe and its equipment loadout.

 

(For the shots againsts the 263 and Lowe when they were behind ther rock, their vision ports were covered by the rock and no spoting would have been possible).

 

Theres a lot of unknown variables in the situation presented. We dont know the crew states of either vehicle, or their equipment. We dont know the current rate of spotting checks. Which is why the title is click bait.

Fastest lap time for the Toyotas at the Le Mans test day was Fernando Alonso in the #8 TS050 with a 3:19.066, while the fastest non-hybrid was the #3 Rebellion R13 (not sure who was driving) with a 3:19.680.
