    WoT v WT effort-thread

    Yeah, the Wirbelwind is pretty disgusting. At ranges under ~200 meters it seems to be perfectly capable of shredding Cromwells, Valentines, and M10s from the front. What really ticks me off about it (and the Ostwind) though is that so many players will put shrubbery and other camo on the turret, so I'll see a Pz.IV hull and instinctively aim for the spot on the hull where you can get most of the crew with a single hit, only to have the shell go right under the feet of the 3 men sitting high in the turret. The Wirbelwind will then notice me (if he hadn't already), spin his turret around, and spray me with 20mm APCR.

    I just bought the Churchill I in WT. God help me.
  3. So what's the consensus on Turbo-Electric propulsion for warships? Good or Bad?
  4. What exactly is this a reference to, might I ask?

    Yep, tough cars. And much more interesting than the Priuses that are coming to dominate the taxi market where I live.

    Here's a big collection of pictures from several auctions I attended at the James G. Murphy auctioneers in Kenmore, Washington

    Since photobucket has locked all my photos on the first page behind a paywall, I'll have to dig the originals up out of my old computer. But in the meantime, enjoy this 1957 Plymouth Fury, photographed in the wild in the vast wasteland of southern Snohomish county. And here's some Volkswagen thing I don't know anything about: And I thought riced-out civics looked bad:

    What are we playing?

    I've been playing a lot of Hearts of Iron IV lately, mostly doing wacky stuff like taking over all of Africa while playing as Portugal and making divisions composed entirely of T92s. Very addicting game though. There's some very nice mods made for it, too.

    I must really need to be getting more sleep, because for a good few seconds there I was having quite a time picturing you murdering your computer with one of these held firmly in hand.

    Yeah, the "Insider" series started raising red flags for me when the supposed insider kept telling them how they'd gotten everything right. Also the bit about there being different RNG for unicums and employees seems really suspect.

    I just remember we got into a few arguments with a wehraboo from that clan, and someone here quickly called him on the fact that his clan's name was a not-so-subtle reference to the SS.

    Did anyone here by any chance have anything to do with this? http://exposingwot.com/gsh-another-nazi-clan-protected-by-wargaming/
