What's your handle on there? I'll look you up next time I'm on.


World of warplanes is ok, War Thunder is betterer.

I'm on PC. They don't cross over.

Took a look at your tanks. Not a bad start.

I've got a few Tier X (and lots in between). Played my 8000th battle earlier this week.

Go up the Russian Heavy line. Get yourself a KV-1S. Get an A-43 too (light tank).
Max out your Hellcat. Get the 90 MM gun. Buy a camo net. Train up your crews to 100% then get the perks Brothers in arms, and camo, in that order.


Join some tank companies ASAP (not the same as a clan). There's usually a commander calling the game, and you get voice.


Added ya.

y i have bought and sold a few tanks. it took me a while just to figure out what i was supposed to do. i would like to play with a real team of people. its a blast when i get the occasional team that knows how to play the game.

btw, i am kind of computer dumb. how did you look at my tanks?

I have the a20 and t28, just need to play them more. I'm trying not to spend much real money so it's a PITA getting money. So far raping faces with my Wolverine seems best for making money.

I have it on my 360, only played a couple of times though. Since GTA V came out my Xbox has only been used as a netflix & DVD player for the wife & kids. My sn is the same as on here, with or without the space, I can't remember.

Been playing it on the PC for nearly 2 years, only 2800 battles though. Have the Tier 8 Russian heavy (KV-4), tier 7 WZ-131 Chinese light, and lots of tier 6's and 5's. Same handle as here; also in a clan with some PNW locals.

It's why I was saying to get into some Tank Companies for battles. Build up a friends list, get invited, and then you start kicking ass and making money, and XP.

Thing is nobody will play with you if you suck, so you have to build up your stats.

As for seeing your junk, there's a forum for the xbox (and PC). I looked you up there.

It gets better/easier to make money when you hit tier 8s. After that the 9s and X cost you shit loads to just run them.

In an 8, you typically make 50-60K per game with 1000 XP (if you don't suck).

It's typical to make a million in about 3 hours.

The T-28 is fun. Only gets better from there. You might want to go up either two lines at the same time (US/Russian/German) or mix it up with some TDs or arty.

We have a guy in our clan that has 5000 battles in ONE tank. He's an arty specialist.

Hold the phone, we have a badass over here.

Good tanks. I still have most of my Russian heavies: KV-1, KV-1S, IS, IS-3 (fawking badass!), IS-7. Sold the IS-8 tier 9. Have an E100, and an E75 (awesome tank, best tier 9 heavy in the game, IMO).

Added ya.

When I played Fighter Ace we would take Noob's and MAKE them into good fighter pilots.
Back then we looked for players that were respectful and played with honor.

Overbear_Sunstreak on it. Been around since the days of beta, I was on the closed alpha for World of Warplanes (I don't like it), and I am trying to get into the closed beta of world of warships (on the list not sure how high)

Teir 1-10 US tanks (I keep all tanks I get unless they suck)
Teir 3-8 US TD (working on that line now)
Teir 5-8 German TD (working that line up too)
Teir 5-9 British heavy
Teir 1-5 german light

Only the stat noobs look at stats. The good players know to watch for other good players. A win/loss ratio can depend on if the person plays in a lot of public games or not (like myself) where you depend on a whole team and usually people are playing for themselves not the win as a team.

Now that said, I am in a good strong clan, lot of great people in it, but I still don't platoon often.

Ive been playing for awhile and I'm hooked - I'm getting close to my American X T57 heavy and I've just got over 3K games played.

I'm currently pissing everyone off running nothing but gold out of my Hellcat

Gvitter is my handle - add me. I'm on all the time.

jonzer12, been on since beta,

Completed lines to the E100, OBJ268, JagTiger and a bunch to about tier 8.
Used to play an hour before crashing every night but with another baby in the house I am basically retired from video gaming for a year or two...
