  1. And look what Tank Jesus just dropped:
  2. See title. Anyone else got simple advice for new players? Here's a short list of mine: Do not get shot at. Shooting makes you easier to see. Cover arcs are not magic. Maybe allow your troops to wait a minute before flogging them onto their objectives. Don't call in that airstrike. No seriously, don't. It'll hit your own guys. It doesn't matter how thick your armor is. You don't assault a position by running straight into it. Use more ammo, you don't get bonus points for frugality. Limit your leaders exposure. Split your squa
  3. No. I've had many scenarios featuring the mass use of tanks, examined literally thousands of damaged tanks over my many years of play, and I notice no unreasonably high incidences of gun damage. In fact, the one tank in the Company that does have to trundle around as a glorified mobile machinegun pillbox is the sad exception to the rule that once you get shot at, you usually die, or bail out of your immobilized tank.
  4. Does it ever occur to you that the OP might not know what they're talking about? Just because someone complains about something, doesn't automatically mean that complaint has merit. Do I have to go through the whole song and dance about "show me some examples or video evidence" before we actually talk about said complaints every single time?
  5. You're not using the command correctly. Hull Down target the BASE of the berm, not the top of the berm. You're telling the tank to go hull down in regards to the empty air on top of the berm. If an enemy tank was parked behind the berm, you would likely be able to shoot it, because it projects above the berm, but trying to shoot the ground on or behind the berm is impossible, because you are hull down in reference to it. It's all relative.
  6. This is why I can't come to the forums anymore. You people make my brain hurt. If you park two stationary tanks across from each other on a flat surface under perfect weather conditions, and allow one tank to range the other and sit there plinking away at it's target, then that is TRAINING CONDITIONS. The observed accuracy of the guns is here demonstrated under TRAINING CONDITIONS. This is no different if you'd hung a paper target and told the gunner to shoot it. The American 76mm gun is wickedly accurate, and at 2000 meters range can easily bullseye the center of mass on a 2 meter target
  7. Well that's just wrong. We've been over this at length already. Historically, the Dreadnought race began in 1906 and was finished at the start of WW1. Rule the Waves game period of 1900-1925 with an optional extension to 1950 is more than adequate to cover the entire period and represent the concept completely. I'll be sure to pass on your opinion. Actually I won't. In fact, why don't you head over to their forums and tell them directly? I'm sure they'd be happy to hear from you. and the speed, fire control, sea-keeping, communication, turret a
  8. Students don't NEED to be gunned down by the army if they've been raised their whole lives to be indoctrinated into the system, and are now willing participants in their own repression. What your wife needs to understand is that on a fundamental level, Western society respects the value of the individual's right to do what they wish with their own life. Even if it's to the overall detriment to society at large. Foreigners I talk to play up the U.S.A.'s social problems as indicative of a flawed and failing society. That's because they are removed from the perspective that the massiv
  9. Well, if the government says it's for the greater good, who are we to question their motives? This is why people here in this thread criticize China. Because they largely accept a draconian reduction in their liberty and rights that would very quickly lead to an armed response among the citizenry here in the West. Well, in the few places people are still allowed to bear arms anyway. There is also the resulting to personal attacks driven by the fact you realize you're wasting your time arguing with someone who's as dumb as a brick. I'm just saying. There's not some 'ins
  10. I would have been shocked, but I lived in Florida for eight years. If you only knew how bad things really were...
  11. Exact same thing happened here. All of a sudden I'm seeing a lot of out-of-state license plates on cars. That's too bad, it's a fun video. It's got frogs in it. I don't much care for predictions. My intended point was that maybe we should all just simmah down a bit. I see the article in question says much the same thing. Every time I read an article about the internal British government procedures, I feel chills run down my spine. Thank goodness we got out of that horrible mess! Once upon a time, I was talking to a buddy of mine who is a rather
