Try it still. It might be almost playable.

I play it exclusively on a lap top.

It is a core3 Toshiba and gets hot normally... but it does not seem any hotter on this game than it does, say, surfin the web.

Anyway, I gotta get a cool, or heat proof pad for the "wrist" area, directly over the CPU. It gets pretty warm

Drum, try a piece of felt. Should help and its only like 69 cents.

Up from that I cant point you in the direction of anything under 18 bucks. Next thing up would be the heat blanket they sell next to the propane torches, and up from that would be a nomex head sock or pair of feet socks (both of those are about 25 bucks, but I will guarantee that your hands will be 25*F cooler than they are now).

Down for four more hours. Bummer, I can't get my WOT fix this morning. Oh, and the time it takes to download the new version.

The new map is kind of lame, but I am looking forward (I think) to the new German tanks and tech tree branches.

I WILL have a Tiger AND a Panther!



Also, supposedly they are beefing up the numbers on the American TD line. Not sure if that will be noticeable or not. Hope it will make my awesome little T18 even better!

Thanks for the heat pad tips. I am gonna start with a corner from an old neoprene mouse pad first. If I can find some thick velvet, I will try that too.

Hang in there, jonesing tankers.... noon is coming fast!

So far I have got my Tiger I elited with and elite 3601 and PzIV.
Been trying out an A-20 to see what its like, and so far Im liking the speed of it.

Drum you will have fun in the tiger, the long 88 doesnt do the same damage as its counterparts but it has a faster reload and the thing is like a sniper.

Don't use it as a brawler unless you are near top tank, shots dont bounce and your modules are made of glass. Its better use is as a mobile TD, use your acc gun to track higher tier tanks and take out their modules.

The tiger overall wont lose you credits, but it is very slow to build them up.

Happy Birthday WoT... be sure y'all head over there today for extra crap.

Deev, I hear you. Somehow the AP seems to carry farther out of that long 88. Find myself using it even at long range. HE is less impressive, of course, but use a lot of that too.

I do like to go with the pack sometimes. Just about anything with a medium flag overhead opens like a can for my 88. And it is accurate enough to do damage between the 'legs' of other tanks.

Trying to grind my way toward my other favorite tank, the Panther, within reach now that it is a tier VII tank, as it should be. Researched the VK3002DB without buying it and using my elites and gold to crank up free XP. Got three tier V elites working hard on the project so the 24k XP between me and my Panther will be gone quickly.

5x today will help.

Just finished off the xp for the Tiger. Now I've got to get the money. I spent some on equipment today. Now I'm working towards the 122 for my KV-3.
