This whole time, for a year, I have been using awfultankers server reticle mod. But I always thought the blue reticle was the server side reticle, so I made the ACTUAL server side reticle 100% transparent. 

 

This whole time I've thought I was using the server reticle :facepalm:

I'm such a dumb person I can understand her logic. See because if you're close enough to an elephant it will always look larger than the moon from the perspective of being on earth.

As the earth is flat, the moon landing and the moon is a lie!

That isn't dumb at all. An average wot player doesn't know what a reticule is, or how to drink water out of a cup, or how to not drool on their clothes.

This solves the dripping problem...droll or anything else.

Still better than me when i just started playing. Didnt know about snipe mode and was using spg without zoom.... so it was like if someone spot an enemy and enemy tank type logo apeared in my LOS, i just moved cursor to that position and shot like that :)

Once upon a time I turned the server reticle on. Then I had two reticles, with no idea which one was which and what to make of it anyway. Turned it off again.

Errrrrr - yeah, I think.......? Purely to satisfy my own curiosity, what other perspective would you propose using?  :confused:

If all you wanted only the server side reticle then instead of downloading a mod why didn't you just go into options and check the option to use the server side reticle? :S

Telescopes were invented to settle this precise intellectual conundrum, and made so the Moon always looks bigger than an elephant. That's why they have two ends to look through, 'Moon' end and 'Elephant' end, careful where you point it.

I thought the blue reticle also was a server reticle, but a more accurate version :facepalm: 

 

I was always amazed it wasn't as wobbly as actual server reticle :facepalm:

But if you look at an elephant using the same telescope, the elephant will still look larger o_O 

 

Assuming you use the "moon end" to make both observations.

Nah. There are just about 20+ million more greater idiots in this game that even can't compare to your "dumbness". So, rejoice ! You're ok.

It's not nice to ridicule the whole server.
