So I got a little distracted by Terraria and life in general, but I’ve been progressing a bit in WoT too. It is now confirmed that I’ve given up almost entirely on the US tank line. I’ve diverted my actions to the German Tank Destroyers and the USSR tanks. Currently in my garage is the Russian T-28 (which is, well, crap), the Hetzer (which is awesome!), the M3 Lee (just because after so many battles I’m gonna stick with him till he’s elite) and the T-14. Yup, I went and bought some gold. I supported the devs and got me a moneymaking tanky. I’m considering getting some more and buying the Lowe as well. I’m also pretty close to buying the T1 Heavy, just because I struggled my ass off to get the experience to unlock it. Grinding for the KV with the T-28 looks like it’s going to take a while too
I’ve also joined a Clan, as you can probably see from the new link on the top of this page. Task Force Black (-TFB- in-game). So far I’m enjoying the interaction, which was the main reason World of Warcraft kept me hooked for so long. The fact that you can only chat while not in a battle sucks though. They should really implement an in-battle clan chat or something. Add a squad chat to that too while they’re at it. The problem is that you’re almost always in a game, sometimes juggling 3-4 tanks in different battles. Having to type something and then wait for a response before you can go into the next battle is counter-productive.
Back in Terraria-land I’ve kitted myself out with a nice mix of silver and gold armour and broken the first Shadow Orb. I got lucky on the first one and had a meteor falling – pity it was in the middle of corruption though. The Eye of Cthulu has also started spawning and I’ve attempted to slay him once, after crafting my shiny new blue lightsaber Sadly this didn’t go too well, Phase 1 went pretty smoothly but Phase 2 is just dealing too much damage for me to mitigate with potions. I’m either going to need stronger potions or get the rest of my golden armour set (which I am trying to do, after creating a new world to scavenge in). I’ve also just found the underworld, and am having it pretty OK against those damn fire imps.
Anyway, this week I should have much more time to properly grind in WoT and Terraria so I’ll keep updating as I go along. And remember: Hetzers gonna Hetz!
