You must be pretty bad when you take 3 days to complete one personal mission XD

Doing 1000 damage can be hard for some players :P

Of all the things that you could have done with the portal, you guys chose to introduce fictional stories? Why? If I wanted to read semi-realistic fiction, I'd have looked at Wargaming plans for 2015....

I liked it, was well done, might catch more people into being interested in the real history. As long as it's not instead of but as well as the entirely historical stuff we get then just good, looking forward to the next one :-)

I think it means Kilbane died in battle (over a month before). Arthur has Post Traumatic Stress, he's blanking out the bit his tank got hit & loader killed, just a question of whether Kilbane is a PTS hallucination or genuine spirit helping him through it :-)

But SS, assuming it's not from a genuine book, someone at WG EU either wrote that or at least translated it from WG. It's good for the community in various ways, it's a nice thing for someone at WG EU to get to do. It's one thing to criticize them for stuff we don't get, but not for stuff we do get that doesn't deserve any criticism at all & is just nice, different, but still in context.

 

edit - but I suspect it was just a vehicle for a joke about WG's 2015 plans :-)

Sadly as Maxmk6 pointed out, Arthur hadn't quite got over the loss of Kilbane who passed away a month earlier.  Was the vision or Kilbane just made up by Arthur or was it really the spirit of his loader looking out for him? That's for you to take from it what you will. ;)

Nice, but keep in mind that, in old european armies, officers don't get leave together with privates and noncoms.

At least we should have 3 different Bar.

For Italian Armour take note that at El Mechili 5 RTR lose all his 12 A9 plus an A10 CS and 6 Light Mk Vi against 9 M13.

M13 was at the same level of Cruiser Mk I e II but crews lacks of proper training.
