I actually got that. A clean install fixed it. (Annoying. Fukken 8 gigs.)
That actually happened to me in 9.3.
Well the "receiving updates" phase is done, now hopefully nothing goes wrong this time...
And of course it's corrupted.

Oh I thought I posted it here too...anyway, I bought an SU-100 yesterday. There was a discount on the tank (and on getting crew too). lol
Get ready to be annoyed by it's poor gun depression and bizarre lack of accuracy, despite what the stats claim. I'm currently grinding it and the moment I get the SU-152, I'm sending that sucker off the scrap heap.
I finally got the game client working,(well sort of) and the first thing I noticed is that my clan is under new management, nothing much has changed, and the KV-1 still rules. First 9.4 match, I chose the KV-1 as per my custom. So I was using my mousepad tthistime and performed mediocrely well. But it looks like that I will literally be an Chest of Medals if I keep fighting like that. And the graphics were acting weird: red terrain that said "texture does not exist" so it's time for another fresh install...

Yeah, every match is a Chest o' Medals now.
Oh yes, I am back in the game. Thanks to my connection getting fixed, I'm playing like a blue player again◊, though it'll probably be forever before I can fix the damage done to my averages (damage especially). ^^;
Had some great games too. Solo and platooned.
Probably had the most hilarious platoon run ever in my two years playing the game◊. Tier 5, and I was helping Precambrian train a new German crew. He was in the T25, I was in a BDR, and Prime_Sentinel was in an M4. So much hilarity, as half of the time we were literally dicking around and we still won anyway.
How the Churchill Gun Carrier was created.
Well during an interview on a NSFW site that I'm an junior mod of, I actually discovered these memes for the KV-2◊ and the whale◊

It's a ship? It's a sub? No, it's a TOG II*!
For the love of God, whatever you do, don't play this game at night. Seriously, I was up at 10 last night driving my mid-tiers. And guess what happened in Ruinberg?
I was top tier in my KV-1, just about everyone on my team thought it was a good idea to rush the field an ignore the city. I was among the few who went into city, only to find out that the enemy played the usual "rush city" plan.
And there was an recurring case of me solo-ing an empty flank without any backup. But fortunately, I usually got an kill or two, but I wound up dying eventually.

Late night is when you're left with no lifers and garbage, little too no in between.
You haven't tried playing at 3AM yet?
That's when the MM struggles and brings up 8v8s. lol
I saw a replay from that time of day where it decided 'Fuck it' and had a match with about 18 arty and a couple poor schmucks in heavies.
@Rabid Tanker: Have you any idea how many times I took my heavies to E0 in Redshire, noticed that I have zero support and died because of the usual enemy heavy rush there a few moments later? Or took the AT 7 to the town in Lakeville only to see the heavies go to get bogged down and destroyed in the swamp?

Trying to heroically hold the flank alone is a silly thing to do when faced with a lemming train. Keep them moving, roll up the flank, then start capping and thus force the enemy to come back to deal with you.
Yeah, we've all been there and I usually die after an minute or two of heroic sacrifice as I get overwhelmed. And it gets funnier when they start cursing at me for not going with them.
So yesterday on Stalingrad, an U.S.S.R. T-34 shot my Chinese T-34 and I subsequently gave him an piece of my mind (i.e. I DPM'd to death in mere seconds). And then I started taking potshots at an SU-122-44 and was eventually got nailed by artillery. After that match I was contemplating on how fast (and unfairly)I killed the medium as he was pulling away from me and another tank. Then it hit me, which has the overall advantage: the Chinese Type T-34 or the original T-34?
And here are my invasion plans for tomorrow
Hypnotize people into driving and parking in front of my parked KV-2 and SU-100 .

With the 57 I think they're the same. Allot of people run the wrong gun on the t34 though
Th 76mm has terrible stats, though, why would anyone run it?
"big gun good!", as far as I can tell. I've got a clan mate whos generally bright who hates the 34, partly because he's been running the 76.
I hated it even though I ran the 57mm.
I last played the "original" almost 2 years ago. While the Chinese version was a long time ago too.
I ended up hating the T-34, and the Chinese rip-off version even moreso due to the horrid gun depression. Aside from mobility, it just doesn't have anything going for it to make it a worthwhile tank.
Now, the Soviet T-34-85, on the other hand? Dear God I love the hell out of it and it's 85mm cannon. Hell even the derpgun on that sucker is worthwhile, especially since the engine is strong enough to allow you to quickly flank and de-track the slower targets!
Well I just had an tier 9 match in my E 75 where me, and two other teammates were at each others throats because a) I have an subpar winrate 46% b) a third of the team was dying left and right and c) my mouse died at the start of the match, so I was guarding an blind corner on the front lines and they went berserk saying that I suck because my stats are "bad", I'm supposed to carry the team by blindly charging into an tank destroyer's trap, and I drive my E 75 with the long 105 since I don't have the 128 unlocked yet.
Guess what? I finally got called an hacker while I was driving my KV-2! All I did was shove an 152mm HE shell into another KV-2's turret "BOOM! HEADSHOT" Pissed-off KV-2: hacker (or something like that) what followed was the nearby IS-3 calling me out for hacking and someone else saying that you can download hacks from a porn site
