I like this guy... he has ethics.

 

I think people playing arty and using the excuse of "completing missions" are lame.

 

                                        :)

 

P.S.  Feel free to check, I have never played an arty, ever, in any account.

 

 

 

 

400 battles in arty, over a 35K history is 0.00005 % of my game total. So 0.00005% makes me lame (for reward tanks), and I have no ethics? Bit of a reach there for a video game to interpolate someone's moral compass.

Preddy does that.  Pay him no mind.  Play the game the way you want, and anyone who doesn't like it can go [edited] a [edited] with a bloody [edited] until their left [edited] gets jealous of all the attention and [edited] all over their [edited] [edited].

 

And the interpretation of a moral compass requires an understanding of direction relative to one's own facing, and, of course, morals...

Question: do you guys still have a streamer partnership program? Working toward affiliate on twitch. Just got to streaming again after a bit of a break so it will be fun trying to grow again. I know you all are still trying to figure out where you packed your spare pair of shoes. so baby steps haha.  welcome to the club.

Sounds like the guy is being modest ... and diplomatic ... substitute 'did not have the heart to ...." and it makes sense.  :D

 

My comment was tongue-in-cheek, light-hearted sarcasm/teasing as a way of welcoming Domo aboard, as well as mocking the viewpoint of those who dislike SPGs.  ;)

 I hear San Marcos and San Antonio are good places to find deals on automobiles?


 

San Marcos is a great place to find a deal on china, sunglasses and designer jeans.  Outlet mall.  Cars, I have no idea.

Well good sir, welcome to these realms of the digital armored cavalry.

 

So, beyond soonTM, got a hot tip on when the Progetto will be available for purchase?

 

I am, you will soon find out, one of the resident wallet warriors 'round these parts; I needs me a new ride.

 

Much obliged!

 

~Beorn

 

(sincerely, welcome, and good luck in Austin)

Honestly, not sure on the exact release date. I can tell you, however, the fact that influencers are out and about streaming with Prosciutto's Progetto's and the fact that I already have one in my garage means it really is coming soon. I just don't know when? Hopefully this month?

I'll check it out! I'm all about live music. I went to easily 50+ shows and a couple music festivals last year.

Actually, send me a PM with a link to your channel. I know we're trying to get more involved with small streamers so who knows? 

We do have community contributors that we partner with, so it's certainly possible.

Emotions will always run high when SPG's are involved. While I have certainly yelled my share of insults at the screen after getting nuked by arty, or followed around all game by the same two SPGs, I can attest to the fact that one does in fact have to learn how to play the class to become such a nuisance.

Beats me, just asking any and everyone. Today I was told to go to Waco for car shopping because San Marcos and Houston are full of 'flood cars' :amazed:

OK here is an actual question. If you could  buff or nerf any 1 tank in the game, which tank would it be and why?

I would buff two vehicles, to make them more competitive, one of which is an old favorite.

 

Let me preface this by saying these are my personal opinions from my experience in-game, and I lack the knowledge of how these vehicles are actually balanced in the current meta, server-wide.


The Jagdpanther II and the Ferdinand.

Both should have more gun depression, Jagdpanther II should get its old "better acceleration but lower top speed" engine back, and the Ferdi could use an armor buff on its superstructure.

Skorp G effectively does everything the JP2 does, better. The tradeoff historically has been JP2 for mobility and camo, Ferdi for armor. 

Ferdi armor is negligible and JP2 lacks the concealment and the acceleration to be competitive.

Also, maybe like a liiiiittle more pen for the Type 59 and IS-6? 2 more degrees of depression on the former would be sweet as well. I never understood the concept of hull-down mediums that don't have the gun depression to effectively hull-down.

I know nothing of your ethics.  Your math skills are questionable, though...400/35,000=1.14%

FRESH MEAT!

But in all seriousness, good to see more CC's dropping in though we all know you will probably disappear like TragicLoss, Trobs and CM did :arta: They saw the toxicity levels in this community and rather for the darkest corner of the WG HQ to hide in terror! I hope you have thick skin like The_Chieftain!

 

Welcome to Hell!

Well, for starters Trobs is a Community Contributor. He isn't a Wargaming Employee, just a trusted member of the community that works closely with us and helps us generate content, like QuickyBaby does with EU. Which forums he chooses to frequent are up to him entirely. 

CM is still here, you'll notice he made a few posts recently, one of which was today. Tragic is also still around but she is involved primarily in our Streaming operations.

I think "hide" or "disappear" isn't the best choice in words. In Community, we wear quite a few different hats throughout the day. We help out on the Production side, we help out on the Marketing side, we get forum announcements up, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram.. The Let's Battle Tour, we work with Contributors/Influencers...  Some folks end up wearing certain hats more often than others, which is why certain people 'disappear.'
