No mods - rolling Blitz in iOS without a jailbreak, so mods aren't an option for me.

Not bad for a bunch of "rusty old men."  Especially as we've made the list of top 10 clans in WOT

Does anyone know what statistic is used when placing one tank above or below another in the list prior to battle? I know the higher tier tanks are at the top but what places one tier IV above another tier IV? Same question regarding identical tanks?

Dunno, great question - I'm curious about that myself. When I see myself at the #1 spot, my first thought is always something like, "anyone else want the microphone?"

I always assumed it was alphabetical, by tank, then user name. will have to have a look next time I play a few games.

 

edit: looking at some screenshots seems to confirm.

Ahh, that makes sense and would explain why my AT 15A is frequently at the top position, especially since it gets premium MM. Thanks for the insight.

Ok, here's an old guy posting for you.  Probably not on topic so feel free to delete but I thought I'd share my latest dilemma...  Got three young kids, 7, 8 and 10 and shuttling them all over the place.  Trying to finish the basement before 2-a-days start for football (yep, coach that), and now looking at teamspeak and visualizing how much that could possibly help with this stupid addicting game I'm hooked on.  I can just imagine what my wife will say when she walks into the room and I'm playing video games (which she "loves" to begin with) and she see's me on a headphone with speaker rocking it out with tanks.  LOL, can't wait to hear that reply!

My wife has a tendency to under-estimate the effort needed to make things happen.

 

Soon after we got married, she and another lady backed into each other (she insists on using mirrors to backup, instead of turning around and looking out the rear window). When she called to tell me what happened, she said the dent in the side of the car was small, "should be easy to pop out". The reality was, it looked like someone launched a frozen turkey into the side of the car. The bill was over $3000.

 

The was 20 years ago. I've learned to take all of these incidents with a grain of salt, and sometimes try to find the upside. Last month, while leaving a parking garage in our Jeep, she hit the machine that operates the gate (how does one do this?). She told me it was a cut in the plastic of the front bumper. She said "it's no big deal, you can't really see it". Turns out it was a cut, inside of a big dent, on a twisted bumper [sigh]. The upside, I finally have a reason to put an aftermarket bumper on the Jeep. 

 

Ok let's apply this to Blitz! Whenever our wives do something that causes damage or costs over $500 to fix, we get $100 iTunes card to play Blitz. I think that's fair right? Oh you need me to take the car to the body shop, get estimates, get it repaired, and pay $2,500 because you didn't watch where you were going? No problem! Love you dear. While I'm doing that please stop by Costco for the $100 iTunes card pack.

 

We need to all do this. :D

Good scotch is a lubricant for the wit and a preservative for the soul.

That is why we play together - because we all understand that. Now when we hear your wife lose it through TeamSpeak we will laugh and needle you about it - but in a good natured way because most of us have been there. :)

 

I've been playing over TS with no headset with another Triarii with no headset (we had to tank and mix drinks for our wives) and the two wives proceeded to talk over TS and make fun of the two of us. It was pretty entertaining even if it was at our expense!

I just hope she doesn't figure out enough game terms. "I had to back into the pole, because that soccer mom in the Subaru was trying to COD the minivan."

Unfortunately my wife has picked up on a few.  She asked me the other day if her Chevy Cobalt would be any good at side-scraping... :facepalm:

 

I had to explain to her that the thin side armor on that thing is useless and would be overmatched by even a Prius.

Now those are funny!  But hey, I drive a prius.  Kind of reminds me of the stock panther II.  Heavy and can't turn well and can get penned by everyone.
