At work in a deep wet hole, he had recklessly omitted to slab the walls of a drive; uprights and tailors yielded under the lateral pressure, and the rotten earth collapsed, bringing down the roof in its train. The digger fell forward on his face, his ribs jammed across his pick, his arms pinned to his sides, nose and mouth pressed into the sticky mud as into a mask; and over his defenceless body, with a roar that burst his ear-drums, broke stupendous masses of earth. His mates at the windlass went staggering back from the belch of violently discharged air: Their shouts drawing no response, the younger and nimbler of the two—he was a mere boy, for all his amazing growth of beard—put his foot in the bucket and went down on the rope, kicking off the sides of the shaft with his free foot. A group of diggers, gathering round the pit-head, waited for the tug at the rope. It was quick in coming; and the lad was hauled to the surface. The crowd melted with a “Poor Bill—God rest his soul!

Also i think a 2 tier spread is just bad if u must have that the amount of times u get in a 2 tier higher game should be limited. The game puts me in 3 tier 8 games in a row in my new m6 so i dont have any upgrades yet so i pretty much cant do anything from the front but am too slow to shoot them in the side or back. Than it puts me in a tier7 game than another tier 8.

The Duchess of Guise wrote to her eldest son that “our little Queen is the prettiest and best that you have ever seen of anyone of her age.

Because of my camo netting I wasn’t showing up on their radars. And this is what pissed me off, a Russian KV tank rolled up the hill and behind me, I knew I wasn’t visible to it so I waited until he went past and I cam out and started firing into his rear, every shot deflecting, he turned his turret round to look at me, but then turned it back and went to the crest of the hill and starting shooting at my team mates.

I sat there at point blank range and blasted 20 shells into his real armour while he totally ignored me until an enemy SPG took me out in a single hit from the other side of the map. I suppose that’s all you can do until I can afford to be in an imba tank myself or they fix their game. Getting behind an enemy tank, even if yours is comparatively small and fast is no small feat as you are usually spotted a long way off and this game heavily favours being immobile, in cover, camping.

At the moment the game doesn’t reward getting behind your opponents that very well, unless it is a tank destroyer, which correctly does have atrocious armour on the rear and it can’t turn to shoot you if you disable its tracks, even a light tank should pose threat to a heavy one if you can score rear hits.

I am a history buff myself, but really we are already mixing Soviet, German and US tanks on the same teams so why not break immersion a little more and make the game fun? Kipling just launched a nuclear holocaust at third world countries! The game is catered in a way that forces you to spend money in order to have any fun. I’ve played many F2P games in my time, and none have been this blatant about wanting your money as World of Tanks has.

In accountancy, depreciation refers to two aspects of the same concept: Businesses depreciate long-term assets for both tax and accounting purposes. The former affects the balance sheet of a business or entity, and the latter affects the net income that they report.

The assemblage, roused now, jolly and merciless, was not disposed to give quarter; and his obtuseness in dawdling over such high-flown notions as that population, not property, formed the basis of representative government, reaped him a harvest of boos and groans.

Reply on December 14, Cheats players and constant Hacks plus Fake names are everywhere making your team worthless due to the amount of fake names Cheaters that abound this game. Please tell me how the game is before I play it. Nothing against those Russians, but in this game they have a ridiculously unfair advantage of being able to buy equipments for half the price that Europeans or Americans have to pay.

This is probably to push non-Russians into buying more and more using the currency of their country which is more valuable to Tanki than RussianRoubles to catch-up with the Russian majority. Again, as mentioned by loads of others, nothing against those Russians, but they sure love cheating. The game is full of cheats and the game does nothing about it, apart from the usual BS platitudes and lies from the forum admins.

He is just saying that tanki is a good game when no Russians are around. Its a bad game when they are since most of them just hack or spend a ridiculous amount of money. I recommend you not to play it.

horrible matchmaking or just me

Joco , on 03 March – Enough were made for a fair few to be surviving nowadays. Don’t shoot the turret head on. Side on, it should be a fairly easy kill. On topic, Xbox players simply have not learnt how matchmaking works, so they bring their friends in regardless of what tanks they have and what tanks their friends have.

A red velvet dress flounced with satin, a pink gauze bonnet, white satin shoes and white silk stockings met their fancy.

The basic facts on which the author’s reading of Queen Mary’s character is founded have not been disputed. Omitted from the books recommended for serious study of Mary Queen of Scots in the preface to the first edition was Mary, Queen of Scots, by D. Hay Fleming, London, A portrait of Mary as a child. The Crown of Scotland had been in the possession of the family of Stewart for more than two hundred years, for it came with the marriage of Margery, daughter of Robert Bruce, to Walter Stewart in All of the monarchs of this family had been notable men, expressing in their persons and their actions the highest ideals of the times in which they lived.

SauerKrapp, on 18 April – And I don’t mean being low tier. I am more amazed at the lack of tank weight balance I have seen lately, in addition to the screwed up match making we get due to platoons. The 5 man arty platoon threw a wrench in the works and pulled you into a match that needed other arty to cover their 5. You can’t throw a rock without hitting one. They’re part of the game and I deal with it.

Ok so I can understand that about the 5 man arty platoon throwing the wrench. So it wasn’t necessarily the match making that was messed up as it was the 5 a holes that messed it up for everyone in that battle. The TD’s all over the place, yeah I know about the On-Track thing going on which is why I chose to play arty in the first place. So yeah, because of all that I’m now against allowing platoons to enter matches using the same kind or even the exact same tank.

There should be limits, a 5 man platoon of lights is just as bad as a 5 man platoon of arties. So just a thought, there are five classes of tanks. Lights, mediums, heavies, TD’s and arty. What if the match making only allowed maximum of two platoon mates to choose the same kind of tank.

He had been a lamplighter in the old country, and for many years had known no more arduous task than that of tramping round certain streets three times daily, ladder on shoulder, bitch at heel, to attend the little flames that helped to dispel the London dark.
