I am so exited! So many nice and interesting people are playing. It is pure joy! My matches have been extraordinary today. We are so lucky to play with those who don't normally play during the week because I genuinely think there is a lot we can learn from them and they make this game so much better.

 

I hope every one else is having as great a time as I am!

 

Keep it positive!

I made the mistake of buying 24hr pre acc and activating reserves to help finish the Conqueror....

Guess what happened next................


 

Still, I do enjoy teaching Johnny Foreigner some choice new English words :trollface:

Are you that blind? Everyone knows that weekend players are only ever on your own team.

It is funny, in a slightly unusual and pointed way which is difficult to describe, that it is only in some southern states of America that the linguistic practices exist that allow the word 'irony' to be pronounced in the way that it is commonly recognised that it should be.  In those states, the 'r' in the word 'iron' is accentuated and emphasised so that, said aloud, it registers as :  'i..ron'.  Much as if a person called Ron were calling attention to himself.  It is therefore an easy and natural extension to carry this practice over into enunciation of the word in question : 'i...rony'.  Irony, easy.  Yet, and here is where the case becomes oddly humorous, it is widely held that our American cousins lack the wit to appreciate irony, whilst we here are deemed to have the palate of the elder civilisation and therefore enjoy indulging our taste for it.  How odd, then, that it is we who are truly unable to pronounce it.  According to our linguistic practices, where 'iron' has a silent 'r' and is pronounced 'ion', we should really be referring to it as 'iony', which has not the same ring really.  Like I say, this is a happenstance of language which is amusing in a way that is difficult for us to pronounce. Meaning, if Orwell is right in his thinking that removing a word from the dictionary deletes the attached concept from circulation also, that it is a source of amusement we are weakly placed to understand.

I have my coat, thankyou...

You might want to consider switching over to colour blind mode then.

1) Shoot everything.

2) Die quickly

2) (a) get ban from shooting allied tanks

3) ??????

4) Profit!

 

Easy, but wouldn't it be easier just to stop playing voluntarily? o.O

True, but that is a known fact and the other fact is the bans for hitting your own team too much ;)

I'm not really colorblind... :rolleyes: Just thought to make it clear that that was in fact sarcasm..

 

BUT! Playing like the game is 1v29 isn't really a bad way to play, just never trust a friendly to do something or cover a flank and you'll never get surprised when the enemy pushes through there. I of course would never condone shooting friendly tanks, except when they're really being annoying and you know how to do it without taking any consequences:playing:
