    Hum... when did have WG some kind of integrity in past scandals? Rigged competitions, their employees abusing their position for their own gain and other fishy stuff is nothing new, and WG always reliably up handling those situations.

    So...TOGtober...tell me something about the tank? I rarely ever see it, and when I do, I rejoice, for I'm most likely sitting in my Black Prince and it means lotsa enemy hitpoints to chew off while being dinged upon. Is it really so useless? What's the deal?


    I might keep it anyway if I make it, just for the oddity value.

    TOG can be pretty decisive when appear in right place in right time.

    Hmm, figured it wouldn't fit my style anyway. Call me a 'basic' tanker, but what fits me is the juggernaut style of E75 and the like. Too bad that things like silverification of gold ammo and the prototype/blueprint-only TDs with ridiculous guns make the style very situational and sort of obsolete.

    But it rarely ever does. Either it dies too early because it's too big with papery armour, or it's too slow to get anywhere at the "right" time.
    I guess it can have its uses when it's top tier and works in a coordinated platoon where the TOG just takes most of the hits so everyone else can take their time at aiming etc. Or if it's top tier in a TOG platoon that just drives straight for the enemy and bullies everyone into submission by sheer DPM and hitpoint pool.

    Well, it can be very annoyed in some spots of some maps, such as Mountain Pass, Fjords, Cliff, Arctic, Abbey and Himmelsdorf.

    Anyway, I find Kv-85 is really a serious downgrade of KV-1S; why not just give a 100mm to 1S then?

    I agree that TOGs work best in platoons and use the HP pool and fire power to push through the enemy tanks.

    That's unless you have a muppet like this on your team

    The old legend of the powerful TOG platoon. Jingles should be banned for putting that fairy tale into peoples' minds.

    What is better than 1 heavy tank arriving at the front when the battle is already over? 3!

    The TOG is garbage and that is all there is to it.

    There's always enough idiots out there who don't know how to handle it (or any other tank) appropriately. You know it's true - you're seeing hordes of them every day you play the game, afterall.

    Edit: A concept for the players vs bots mode is apparently in testing. Looks kind of fun, already.

    I presume that a number may know about the Overwolf give-a-way of 1k gold if you regsiter and run the game for 60 minutes with Overwolf up?

    I found it on the For the Record web site: http://ftr.wot-news.com/2014/11/04/f...comment-217049

    Saw it, but I'm not going to install some stuff just to get gold I don't need.

    I'm down to 0 gold and will use the 1k to take equipment off a vehicle for 10g a time....

    I got the code and then uninstalled Overwolf....

    I am attempting to patch a year of WoT patches, and it is very painful with a 3 mbps connection.

    From For the Record:

    - apparently, there’s yet another nasty bug in 9.4 – in it, players with premium account are awarded the same amount of XP as with regular account, or actually LESS (visible on this screenshot, lower right corner). Storm: “Oh f--k…”

    Recently Wargaming.Net were bragging about their QA being good.......

    Yeah, of course it is. That's why, when you try to fix a up collision model, you don't fix the collision model - you up the physical model as well.

    Fix it? Of course not. You up the visual model too. Presenting you: M53/M55 in Asian hotfix.

    Incredible.
