World of tanks

Light tank with lousy stealth on a city map where there’s no concealment anyway? Challenge accepted!

It’s the Season Three opener, and World Of Tanks isn’t going to get away with it, either.

Two battles on Ruinberg and honestly that’s the only thing they have in common. One features an ending that’s so Gangsta it’s been picked to present the next MOBA awards, and the other is probably the most aggressively ballsy Light Tank play I’ve seen this year. Enjoy!

That’s right, World of Tanks, you’re not getting away with anything, either.

Aurorik78’s back and he’s still playing the game in Hard Mode. Even harder than normal, this time he’s in a Manticore.

In aviation angle of attack (AOA) is the angle between the oncoming air or relative wind and a reference line on the airplane or wing.

In World of Tanks it’s something you need to pay very careful attention to in a French Tank Destroyer.

High Explosive, or the British High Explosive Squash Head ammo is the ammo of choice when shooting at thinly-armoured targets. It almost always produces, well… explosive results.

Broken Arrow, the US codeword for the loss of a nuclear weapon. Not to be confused with Broken Rubber, which doesn’t involve nukes but can be equally catastrophic.

If something seems to good to be true, it’s probably because it is. Unless it’s a tank in World of Tanks or it’s Lobstep from Honest Gaming.

In which STAGGR gets sick of playing Mediums for Marks of Excellence because it’s too hard and goes back to playing Light Tanks Instead. Yes, really. Light Tank players really are just a different breed.

“Pax Romana” or the Roman Peace, which the Romans achieved mostly by sending the Legions out under their Centurions to conquer and demand taxes from anyone who might potentially be in a position to maybe, at some point, disturb that peace.

Sometimes gaming can be hard. A lot harder than it needs to be.

I can’t remember the last time a World of Tanks battle had me actually yelling and cheering at the screen. Today is one of those days.

In which our hero has a pretty miserable start to this Standard Battle on the Glacier map, but events (by which I mean mostly the enemy team) conspire to elevate him to Hero of the Hour.

In which T30_Enjoyer confuses us all by playing a tank that isn’t a T30 but still has a bunch of numbers in the name.

The 60TP, it’s a big chonky boi. So’s the result Crisis36 gets with it.

The Matilda, possibly one of the best tanks in the game, but only when it’s top tier. Which is fortunate for Doom Master 4000 because today it is.

No, it’s not a great title but it’s late and it’s the best I could come up with on short notice.

Two battles today since it’s unusual to find a WOT Battle these days that’s over 10 minutes long. The second of todays’ matches is pretty remarkable, although I’m not going to spoil why until you’ve seen it.
