I picked up Airscape, Bastion, Dust: AET, FTL, Kerbal, Machinarium, Mass Effect 2, Mini Metro, Montaro, Ori and the Blind Forest, PvZ, Poly Bridge, Reus, SimplePlanes, Jedi Academy, Stardew Valley, Train Valley, Turmoil, and Witcher 1 and 2... should keep me busy for a bit.

Trying for a mix of engrossing stories and things that make my brain work. A few of the above I've played through as a dirty filthy pirate some time back, but decided to pick up legitimately either to support creators or because I can't be arsed to deal with how buggy the cracked versions are.

The new Chinese TDs are Completely BalancedTM.

I should feel bad for clubbing but it's doing amazing things for my WN8 and Win%.

Been doing pretty good in my M44 lately. Yes arty, I know, but its making me some good cash with its 17.17 reload.

Artillery might be less powerful since the changes, but I find it's a lot more enjoyable... I actually play the Crusader SP now, I had given up on it before.

So their mobile version (Blitz) is apparently doing a Warhammer 40K thing over Halloween, with Predator and Vindicator tanks. Would be nice if they had a Leman Russ. I suppose the Baneblade would be overkill. Anyway, are there any requirements other than just having Blitz? Would -any- user be able to play the Halloween event or would you need some experience first?

Events have usually been open to all comers.

(If you have Windows 10, Blitz is also available in the windows store)

No Windows 10, but I may just pick up Blitz on my phone if it can run the game. That should be fun.

Finished my 183 grind a day or so ago, just in time by the looks of it, hoped on the test server to try the replacement tier 10 and i think i'm going to like it, it fixes everything i didn't like about the tortoise and it's dpm is godly.


although if you want an assessment of the test server atm.....

I decided not to alienate all my loved ones to grind up to the 183, though it somewhat pains me not to, sixne I've been aspiring to the Deathstar forever.

On the big x5 weekend, I unlocked and bought the Ikv 90 B and the Centurion 7/1, which was dandy.
