    Hehe, I just noticed that the Jagdtiger can upgrade to that engine as well, so I'll just spend my exp on it and make the grind to the Ferdinand a little easier.

    First battle in the Stug III and I claimed 4 tanks. Not a bad little TD. Most of the stuff is researched already except for the tracks and one Gun, so it was a nice transition from the Hetzer

    Edited:

    And now those tracks are researched. Easy peasy

    I have only ever had one issue with the game which I sent a ticket for. I was banned because my username was "Scrappa55" and they thought 55 was some nazi stuff so I sent them a ticket and the same day they responded saying I can get my name changed to get unbanned. Had it changed the next day.

    I don't know if they are normally like this or I was lucky but from what I've seen it's very fast.
    all names with SS or 55 or 88 are temporarily suspended pending a name change, once a new proper name is chosen the account is free to play again, this is due to Law within Germany about Nazi stuff... and WG's EU and RU servers are in Germany...so we cant really piss them off.

    My T25 AT is a fucking good luck charm. Abruptly, it's been getting about one loss every five to ten wins. It alone has pulled my win/loss ratio in my favor by a full percent.

    I just.. I just don't think I can give up it's raw speed for the frontal armor of the T28.
    T28 has no frontal armor to speak of.

    Played a round yesterday, got penetrated by a KT and IS-3 at 400meters of distance into the upper front hull (not hatches or anything), until I died.

    To summarize MM 2.0
    - The matchmaker will now avoid placing the player in the same position in the list repeatedly (i.e. you no longer get strings of five times or more being bottom of the list).
    - The matchmaker will now see the entire queue at all times when filling matches, instead of seeing tanks one by one and slotting them in. This should avoid unbalances created by platoons, lessen tank stacking and promote diversity, and reduce the chance of arty-parties.
    - It will be possible to instate limits of how many tanks of a certain type are allowed in a battle. For example "no more than 3 artillery per side" or "no more than 6 Type 59's per battle". However, this feature will be initially disabled (they probably want to see how the other changes pan out first).
    - While maximum battle tier spreads won't be reduced, the matchmaker will now attempt to fill battles with smaller tier spreads if the amount of tanks in the queue allows it. Dev mentioned something about battles with only a single tier being possible.

    There was a post on the NA forums translating a russian preview of the various features a month ago or so, but I can't find it right now.
    So it will be quite a big improvement.

    7.2 also adds messages that pop up when you spot an enemy and when your allies damage or destroy enemies you're spotting. Really useful for (bush)scouts.

    Yeah Valdor... it's an alpha. Most games in this phase are barebones tests of game mechanics and just trying to get a feel for the future game. If it was a beta I'd understand a little excitement but really, don't expect a miracle from an alpha. I imagine it's barely a game at the moment (and that's not meant to be an insult, that's the reality of alpha-testing)

    Properly tiered battles would be good, imagine 30 biplanes going at it. Also it's an alpha so i don't know what you're doing judging it already.

    The reason I will miss the speed is because there's got to be about 12 matches recently I've booked it back to base and stopped a cap/scout/medium from doing nasty things. T25 AT has some insane speed and is oddly bouncy against other American tanks.

    pretty much, but thats at least a little bit more respectable than using artillery on noobs.

    Not expecting a super amazing game that's going to be the best thing I've ever played, but with a few friends already in the global alpha I'd love to be able to play with them. Plus tanks are getting rather boring.

    Edited:

    Also just a question, I hope to god it doesn't work this way. If he's accepting people with a 100% on the quiz over those with a lower score, and he's picking them first then... won't people who didn't answer it 100% correctly keep getting pushed farther back by people making clone accounts to get the right answers?

    So basically, get one wrong and you never get in.

    Edited:

    Well not never but extremely late compared to others
