It's morning, and that means Tank Rewards. That means two battles in tier X and I only have the IS-7. I am now officially past caring for this tank and its stats. Two more losses today. One was a pathetic, one-shot/hit/damage massacre (0<5 at the time of my death) and in the other I was on over 2,400 damage and two kills but had bounced off the REAR of another IS-7 with APCR and off the SIDE of an E75 with AP. That gun is AWFUL. That's 18 tier X battles for the Tank Rewards and I won 3/10 in the Grille 15 and 2/8 in the IS-7. :angry:

 

It seems like the IS-7 will remain in the garage solely for events such as this where playing tier X is (more) obligatory. I don't see any other reason for me to play it.

 

Including a couple of extra battles to obtain Bruiser for the Advent Calendar, I have played 13 and won 5. Yesterdays stats do show that I did play 15 in the evening and did indeed win only five after winning 8/11 in the Tank Rewards session. Yesterday and today in total now stands at played 39 and won 18. And you recall that the 15 I played last night were in several of my absolute favourite tier IV vehicles. :(

 

It looks like I am going to have to a: stop giving a damn again (it does help) and b: take a break after the joyous festive period. Meanwhile, I will take what I can get from the current events.

 

Edit- decided to upgrade the engine on the Object 263 and took it out in a tier VIII to X battle. Third on damage with over 2,700 HP and lost again. Make that played 40, won 18.

 

Edit 2. I couldn't decide what to do this afternoon and so I started playing the StuG IIIG for third MoE (again). The session started well with over 3K HP damage and assist (roughly 50/50) on Prok' which boosted the rating after the disasterous couple of games the other day.

 

Several OK to pretty poor battles just kept my MoE over 92% but not climbing. Then this battle happened, and I ended the session on 93.5% MoE. http://wotreplays.eu/site/5124789#siegfried_line-powjay-stug_iii_ausf_g

Gave up after the 9th loss in 10 games and did something more interesting and fun (washing up).

Trying to ace as many tanks as I possibly can, and today ace number 282: 40TP, possibly the worst tank in the game tier-for-tier.

 

Sold. Goodness gracious, what a relief!

first battle of the day and already a team that just does not want to win

 

Tier 10 and 9 and light tanks still go into towns and leave the rest of the map unspotted

Enemy does spot so its a one sided unwinable battle.

 

Next battle, again totall loss. Looks like people (if it really are people) only want to get in the next battle asap

 

Battle after that, finally the enemy gets the botters.

Why botters u ask? Well, give me another reason why T-10 should be spamming HE at a JT .......

 

 

Few more battles and my faith in humanity has left trough the front door ......

Played TX lights and the a couple of tier 8 games, won 9 from 10. Think it's time to stop before my luck turns.

Two more losses in the IS-7. One RUBBISH tier X game and one where I was second on damage at tier X with over 2,600 HP. I really will not be aiming to play X for any reason other than missions/rewards.

 

I played the FV3805 earlier in a fair battle on Prok, and a rubbish one on Siegfried Line. Can anyone please explain how I can get THREE direct hits on enemy vehicles and, overall, 8 shells that did (apparently) cause at least some splash damage and yet I get only 1,000 HP damage when the average shell damage is over 800 HP? Absolutely useless. It is no wonder that SPG players now target LTs, MTs and (certainly in my case) other SPGs. Targeting heavies and assault TDs is little more than an exercise in frustration.

 

I've completed the daily ten battles for Tank Rewards. Won five. One step closer to selling the T-34-1 (which did win, but I was long-destroyed). The final three battles were in the Wolverine, which desperately needs 6th Sense (now 96%). I won two and drove the MoE up to over 78%- this since buying it back relatively recently.

I managed to carry a Foosball table down a flight of stairs and then back up again, because I got semi-stuck in the staircase. (I'll give it another try tomorrow, too late for moving on now, no matter the detailed reasons.) Damn real life troubles. Also extremely taxing on my calory consumption, so much more than virtual tanking. Guess I'll have to play a couple more battles or post a little more stuff on the forums to get my head back on straight. Thanks for asking!

 

Oh btw, the rest of the day was shite as well. Nevermind.

How's yours so far?

Come back bro, we need your money to keep the prices down!

The more buying customers, the less each one has to spend for WoT to be profitable.

Come on man, take another one for the team, help us move this treadmill a bit more.

Played 18 and won 12. Not all great, not all terrible by a long shot. I have completed all of the New Year Bustle missions apart from 8 and 10, which I have just completed for the first time, so only 2nd time to go on each. I am at Festive Level VI, and making a nice collection of shards with a couple of tier V decorations already received in small boxes. I have chosen the Wolverine for tier V bonus as it offers 100% crew training boost, which is exactly why I am playing it.

 

This battle below was rather special...

 

I won Radley Walters, Pascucci, Invader and Top Gun. The enemy O-I won Radley Walters, Pascucci, Steel Wall, High Calibre and Top Gun. I don't think I have ever seen two RW medals won in the same battle. And get that- ONLY 1st Class tanker. :amazed: Allies spotting for me, I guess. :(

Played seven KV-3 games and went from 0 to 93.630 experience. Grinding is such a chore these days. :teethhappy:
