    But hosting it separately would mean paying someone like akamai and that would be too expensive for a game! No wait riot games do exactly that with LoL.

    The quality of service in the past week has been terrible.

    Haven't been able to field serious CW action lately as too many players are experiencing packet loss at the primetime.

    That packet loss is making it unplayable - I got a full disconnect today mid-battle and the rest of the time it is a "jerk fest under strobe lighting".

    Yep. I've just stopped playing, as have many others. Know a few that don't even bother checking anymore

    Had my token game on SEA yesterday, man have they gimped light tanks? Took my trusty little T-50 seems slow and gimped, getting up a hill felt like a stock KV-1 and despite lighting up 11 enemy tanks and damaging a couple I was rewarded with just 55XP (we lost).
    Not worth the effort. :thumbdn:

    Just started playing this again and unlocked the Bishop SPG. Once you get off the stock gun... wow. WOW. This thing is hell fun to play and if it's this much fun in the big hunk of a body, I cannot wait until I get the FV304.

    The T-50 was nurfed ages ago when they removed the T-50-2 and replaced it with the MT-25 piece of shit. If you want some LT action the WZ-131 and 132 are really good, and the new LTs that are coming out next patch look amazing. the Tier 8 US LT will have a 152 mm derp :lol:

    Packet loss has been a LOT better and it is very playable again.

    Some of today's session lol
    My impatience cost the win, last tanks killed each other. E25 shoots Obj416 which burns but he kills me= both dead. Not as good as Commie Mike's E25 replay a few pages back but good for me...

    Got 88k in another losing battle in the T34. Would have been an excellent result if we won but the lemmings in the team ensured that we lost...

    Have to laugh at artillery, they are the fricken Ebola of WoT.

    A enemy Jagdtiger been the soul enemy tank left was half dead when we boxed him against a wall in my Tiger P in with the help of a T29 also stopping him from manoeuvring, we started finishing him off when a 'friendly' Arty decided to help, ...by dropping a 200mm shell on my head, ammo racking me and setting the T29 on fire, not a scratch of the enemy tank, he finished off the smouldering T29 then drives to our spawn and murders the idiot artillery driver.
    The artillery drivers response to losing the game 'your fault for been near the enemy tank!!11'

    Love Sea..

    I managed to seed a tier 10 5 arty match last night.

    The team were scared shitless to move anywhere. We won though through a combination of cb and good positioning. At one point I was spotting because my team were too afraid.

    Clicking for the win.

    So you were in a battle this morning and commented "you can tell that's an Aussie" after my swearing at the dickhead in our side - from Adelaide?
