Probably just a routing issue for you, I'd imagine?

Ping jumped from 140ms to 240ms when 1.0 dropped.
Wasted hours with WarGaming support and Vodafone NZ for nothing.
Last 3 or 4 patches it was fixed in 2 - 3 weeks. This has been months now, and I have given up trying.

WarGaming should advertise that a third party vpn is required to use this product from New Zeakand.

That's the date it was put forward to, but doesn't mean it won't change again. It's just a placeholder as it was required.

That means that China is pushing its lockdown to the limit.

TLS (Transport Layer Security) is a cryptographic protocol used to secure web browsing (and other computer communications). The latest and most secure version is 1.3, so if China are blocking it, it means they're trying to get people to use TLS 1.0, 1.1 or 1.2 which will allow them to decrypt web traffic as these older protocols have known vulnerabilities.

 

Big daddy Xi doesn't like people using communications he can't snoop on.

according to this it will be the 17th of august....we will get 6 more or the less useless tier II-III tanks most people already got (and maybe sold lol) plus a tier V medium tank ( the Valiant) and the topper is a tier 6 british light tank (a46) wich is , according to this ,https://tanks.gg/tank/a46 , utterly useless and you have to grind for it with the other useless free tanks ONLY and fullfill some missions or spend 1500 anniversary coins.....

gg wargaming ....last usefull tank for free was the super hellcat....10 year celebration looks a bit shabby in comparison.....

Being rewarded by WG to seal club through a grind. That will be awesome for all the new players. Still at least the tier 6 reward is a bit shit, so that may reduce the effect a bit.

I once worked at a place in Vic were sidearms were checked at the door . I can understand Vic police being twitchy . I also remember the copper that came out from the US over 30 years ago . His words were shot them now . Just shot them . His thinking was if they had done that 30 years ago they would not have they problems they have now .

 

I worked in Venezuela in the mid 90s and the very first thing done on the minesite was to build a great big bund around the entire site so people could not shoot in. And we flew between the 2 camps, despite them only being 13km apart. Was a very regular occurrance to have locals come forward with mangled bodies claiming that the trains had run over them and they wanted compensation. They must have had strong constitutions to overcome the 20 bullet holes in them, and then stagger onto the tracks to be run over. 

 

And a couple of years ago in Mozambique, at the weekly mine talk from the GM, the employees of one of the contracting companies were asked to raise their hands. He had fired people in a similar circumstance so there was some apprehension.Instead he praised them whole-heartedly for being the ones to devise a way to armour the locomotives so the trains could keep running. Was talking to a couple of ladies who were selling handicrafts at the Saturday morning market, and they had taken 8 hours to travel 230km to get to the market. The army was organising people into convoys and escorting them up the roads with APCs. Was a triangular route so they were going to take 3 days to get home.

 

Never ever take it for granted that I was lucky to be born where I was.

There's definitely an issue if people have to relearn armored train technology to get around the neighborhood.

 

It's amazing they haven't started stealing the rails instead.

I was not quick enough to find out if they were using the Soviet "rounded and sloped" approach, or the German "flat and thick as" approach.

 

They didn't steal the rails, but huge parts of the security fence were stolen to be used as building material.

 

And the fence was dug 2m into the ground, either side filled with razor wire, that small panel mesh type material which is impossible to climb and topped with razor wire. The locals just came along with battery powered angle grinders and cut it off. They were talking about using drones to patrol and protect the fence.   

 

Theft was so endemic that a couple of 800 tonne excavators had burnt down because people were on them stealing fuel while they were being operated.

 

Because there is no real property rights people can walk through parts of the mine. In 2012 a couple of kids drowned while swimming in some mining voids and an exploration crew was lucky to be saved from a mob.

 

These were serious people. In 1977 there was an explosion at an underground coal mine which killed about 80 miners. Their families rose up and slaughtered the entire East German mine management and families as payback. Was known as the Moatize Massacre.

Different things. The super hellcat is for long term players only (a well deserved reward). Whereas this is a prize to all players just to celebrate the anniversary. 

 

I don't think new players need a high end tank. Love those tier 10s with under 1k battles... and it shows.

I had this weekend holiday to play the game only, next week completing missions will be tough since too much work is scheduled. Kind unfortunate but people are saying the premium tank offered is just some balanced crap (good to know wont be wasting my time since Im no collector)

 

But was checking the garage's comparison tool of tanks, and realized that wargaming still didnt add the A46 to the client, which just show how delayed the thing is to be released. I was curious to see if this tank is really just some balanced tank if wasnt too bad compared to other tier 6 light. Disappointed cant even investigate by my own but the tank's not on client's files yet. I heard is fast and mobile, just that is enough for me. But knowing its just Brit light tank where I have no intention to go was not a put down, it was the fact that I want to see how crap the DPM is, if its too crap its not gonna be worth for absolutely nothing.

Does 1509 DPM at tier 6 with .45 dispersion sound good to you?

if was just that 200 DPM difference from T-50-2 (one of the slighly better tier 6 LT) I would even take it, BUT was checking tanks GG to compare A46 vs T-50-2 and the tank is absolutely crap in every way. Its not even balanced. Its just plain underpowered and unfair. Even the radio range is sad for a LT. BUT it seems that its a premium tank, while T37, and T-50-2 are not, so there is that, the only advantage.

 

I think that even a tier 5 LT will beat the crap out of this tank A46. Well the thing is delayed so now I at least had time to go and investigate instead of spending anniversary coins on it. But nevertheless these events being delayed can only cause me concerns about the future of this game.

 

Here is the comparison: https://tanks.gg/tank/a46/stats?cs=t-50-2-p (fixed the link)

Bad news is next week is the week of Steel Hunter. So you only have that week to complete it.

 

But good news is that you almost 2 months for this tank, til mid-October. So can do the 50 missions if you want to grind it whenever.

When I see:

 

1. ISU152k is not purchasable by gold
2. Just received super exclusive offer for SKG (32USD roughly), I traded SKG for other tanks before

I will treat this 10% discount and my current exclusive offer on SKG, as a joke.

Unless they allow me to transfer the offer to current ISU152K purchase.
