  • i don't think i'm going to enter- I just don't have the time really, and I don't want people to be discouraged from joining the tournament (I don't mean to seem snooty/arrogant)

I cant even get my browsers (IE, Firefox, and Chrome) to allow the login fields to work correctly. Only way I'm logged in on this one is cuz of cookies.

  • I've been meaning to make a 40 ton, as normally all my stuff is just superlight so this works out well. By "footprint" do you mean total hullsize or base hull size? Like does that include tracks?
  • Alright I'm getting in on this. Will have to get some screencaps up of the tank a little later on. ɦɠ | Shikaka! #bestinamerica -Jaxx I - Challenge - 40t - 140mm

  • Heh, all this newfangled ACF... I don't think I can convert my Maus directly to it, but I'll see about making a tank destroyer for this, maybe JagdTiger or JagdPanther styled.

  • [QUOTE=Amplar;36642003]let's just hope your tank is not 200 meters long[/QUOTE] I'm saving that for the Land Battleships ;) But no, I'm making stuff to scale now, still kinda large though, but nowhere near as big as what I used to do.

  • i am trusting a tank that is largely untested in combat with concepts i have never tried before RIP
  • Those who wish to enter the competition add me on steam after leaving your entry here, it should make it easier to organize the battles that way. My username is :3 Wolf Also would anyone have any issues if I enter myself seeing as I'm the one organizing the competition?
