Not happening, nice as it would be. It'd be illegal in Russia.

 

also the pride flag is way better than the bi flag. It's not even close.

 

... so only offer it to the servers that are not affiliated with the RF?  I would think that this would be a no brainer for the NA server at the very least.  

 

... and as a precedent, the other server bases get different sales deals from NA on a regular basis (tanks, gold etc).

Quick question ... for the new upcoming russian tanks (K-91 & Object 277)... do you need to have the physical tank in the garage to get the upgrade, or is it enough to have it ground out?

Usually for the new tank to appear in your garage you actually need to have the one it is replacing. If you have the old one unlocked but don't actually "own" it, you'll just have the new one unlocked.

Sherman VC Firefly (U.K.)

I'll take small victories. I got them to call it "Eagle 7". They had another name in mind originally.

Since they're new tanks that don't replace any existing vehicle,  you need to have enough XP on the T-10 or Object 430 II in order to unlock them.

Thanks ... ugh, yeah, that does make sense ... actually I was leaning towards the 277 until the nerf ... now I think I will go the K-91 route and rely on the 5a for the heavium meta.

You know, that... whatever you want to call it... stinks of something a self-described "Powerful Businessman" perpetually stuck in the boast and bravado, all flash and no substance mentality of the sleazy stereotypical 80s business world would consider an effective sales pitch.

 

I mean, it's not as if there's a stereotypical 80s "businessman" involved in all this.

 

Comparing his treatment of American allies at the G7 meeting and in trade issues in general, to his newfound trust of Kim... it seems right in line with his long-time attitudes.   He clearly believes that:

 

* There are only winners, and losers.  That there are only alphas, and betas. 

* That honestly, generosity, and cooperation are signs of weakness, while belligerence and brinkmanship are signs of strength. 

* That there are no friends or allies, only competitors and suckers.

Speaking of Don Orange... Michael Cohen's lawyers are reportedly leaving, which has lead to speculation that he is about to flip.   Included in this story is the fact that some of his legal fees have been paid for by Don Orange's campaign organization.

I wouldnt be surprised if they just dropped him due to him being such a difficult client to work with and destroying their case by withholding information from them.

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.

 

All is going according to God's plan.  The Trump is chosen by God to bring punishment unto His children.  Soon God's will shall manifest, and the world shall burn.

Not sure I follow ... or rather, not sure what you mean by 'exist'?  As in they can see the item being offered?  (but cannot buy)?   Now I could see if a Russian player had two accounts, he or she could clearly see the additional elements offered ... but as it stands now, I don't see the offers being made to the EU, RU or Oceania Servers ... so how would any single account player actually see it?

 

... or is it the case, where due to ideology, the item cannot be acknowledged in any way?

Or at the very least that really cool new bi flag.

Who wants a Defender 2.0?

 

That tank is a bad idea with those stats... in no uncertain terms it should not even be considered for release with those stats.

 

 

EDIT: Meanwhile the new Pershing looks pretty ok:

While it might be true that great powers have no eternal friends, only eternal interests, it's also true that friends come and go but enemies accumulate.

I'll have to figure out what to do with the 4 female crew members in my ordinary Firefly... might retrain them to TDs.

New York State Attorney General's office to sue the Trump Foundation and its directors, Donald Trump Sr., Donald Trump Jr., Ivanka Trump, and Eric Trump. The lawsuit alleges decades of illegal conduct in violation of state and federal law, including illegally using the foundation's resources in support of Donald Trump's 2016 presidential campaign.

There was a lot of coverage of the Foundation during the election, on subjects such as "self giving", and then it largely went quiet after Orange Tuesday. 

 

Good to see that someone's been on the trail of this since then.
