This having been the sole purpose of my squalid existence for many years, you cannot imagine my joy and palpitating heart  now that I now have, almost within my grasp, the most fabulous object in the world, namely a 53% win rate.  At 52.46 they laugh at me and shun me, yes, I can hear them talking about me behind my back, even now, in the locker room.  But at 52.51% the boot will be on the other foot.  We will be the masters then.

 

Onward and upward!

Personally I'm struggling to keep an "even keel". GL with the 53%:)

Yes, the smell of fear from LEWD is quite palpable.  I am so excited that I shall have to put on my Japanese schoolgirl outfit in order to calm myself down.

Is that the one with the tentacles? Or have I been watching the wrong cartoons? :unsure:

Dear me, Straps, what an over-excited mind you have.  I was of course referring to playing my Type 95 in its bathing costume camouflage.

I hear Debrett's don't consider you for listing till you've got 55%.

I think you are confusing Debrett's with Who's Who.  Regardless, I am happy with my listing in Burke's and feel that I have no more to prove.

You are on your way Bulldog!

 

But hang on, in WOT terms that means you are also preparing yourself for a nerf sooner or later, so don't get cocky, the KV-220 is still your best friend, but if it starts to fail it's not the tank but 'RNG'.

I will be fine in the 220 once WG sees the light and abolishes arty, gold ammo, the rigged MM and any player with half a brain cell.

Be careful, if you go much higher you'll run the risk of being taken seriously!

I have to have some way of testing my handiwork.

I was linking the achievement of 55% winrate to being elevated to the WoT equivalent of a peerage, but unfortunately I linked it more in my mind than my narrative.

Congrats.

 

How does the smell of success compare to the smell of fresh napalm in the morning?
