I just threw 15 random bucks from my paypal on there and now I have a month of premium. A ton of silver flow but I dont notice too big of an increase of xp. I did notice that my lag instantly dropped from the 500-700 range to the 50-70 range. Hmmm wonder if they're throttling for people without gold.

Cool you've got some time left if you want to take advantage of their little 24 hour promo and get some free XP from a few tanks. I've made about 500k in credits today plus 13k in XP I'll be able to exchange to free XP

I never have lagged, either as a free or premium account so I don't know what to tell you there. I have an amazing ISP where I'm normally around 30Mbps so I rarely lag in any game.

I have charter which was doing good for a while but for the last couple weeks has really sucked at running this game but still did the web, videos, and downloads at normal speed.

Wow... that was the longest day of video game play that I have had since college!

Cleared my schedule and hunkered down with snacks and treats at hand for the long haul. Started soon enough to be annoyed by the length of the server restart at 11:30 UTC. (7:30am for us EST folks)

Had two tanks already that were on the doubled list and, after (literally) crunching numbers and my tech trees, I decided to pick up a half priced T28 to make it three double tanks to run for the day. That cost me about 200k silver upfront (I like my tanks tricked!) and turned out to be an unnecessary effort.

Played tanks pretty steady ALL DAMN DAY. Platooned with MrMag11 a bit and went to bed at about 1am. Got up this morning at 6am and had a surprisingly good bit of tank killing before the server restart cut me off.

I worked my M4 and my M10 back and forth all day. Went from about 15k XP apiece to having both tanks banking elite dime by about 3pm.

Banked just under 3 MILLION silver yesterday... ayuh.

Got about half an hour left on the 24hr premium account so I am gonna mosey on back over there and tune up a couple of my ignored tanks before it expires.

Cheers!

Nice job Drum!

I've managed to get my son hooked on this game as well. He came over yesterday afternoon and ran my tanks for a few hours for me. It kinda sucked watching rather than playing.

Thats one reason I do not do a lot of that postmortem watching.

Now I gotta decide which of my tanks deserve some of that toys all that silver will build. The higher the tiers the more expensive all the batman gadgets are.

My IS is gonna be tricked like a ghetto pony!

You misunderstand Drum. I was watching my son play. He was on my computer.
