I bought the Atomic - However I dont know how I keep dying and getting destroyed in it.

Was this tank falsely advertised? I believe so and am super disappointed. Lets look as to why......

 

1.. Have a Blast with the Invincible Atomic Centurion.

  Lets see what the definition of Invincible is incapable of being conquered, defeated, or subdued.

So basically it is advertised as a Tank that Cant be defeated (aka Dead) So it should have a 100% winning rate. Correct?

 

2.  Survive any battle. Outlast them all. This is the Atomic Centurion. - See above - Falsely advertised TWICE

 

3. Dish out some nuclear power to your enemies - I dont know about anyone else but I only have tank rounds - nothing Nuclear behind them at all...Should I be shooting nuclear rounds - I mean if they penetrate the enemy crew should get uranium poisoning.

 

After providing this evidence - I still feel duped. I paid for an invincible tank that should survive EVERY battle and dish out nuclear power to my enemies. I personally feel that I was just given a rusted out Huntsman.

Good one.


I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

Don't know if it's sarcasm or not but it's a good tank and gave my T-10 a real run for it's money the other day and i kept bouncing 250 odd mm of pen off the turret. :)

It’s actually not a bad tank. Not a front liner obviously, but a very capable sniper, with a good rof, and decently mobile.

I actually like it. Would spring for it if I had any spare cash.

Im assuming this is a joke but there is some truth to it. Im sure there are a lot of uninformed tankers who bought this tank assuming it was an uparmored Centurion when in reality it doesnt even have the buffed turret like the Primo Victoria. I do feel the advertising for this tank was purposely very misleading. When you watch the trailer they released for it its a non stop montage of the Atomic Centurion bouncing shots.

I'm guessing that your purchasing choices in general are guided by celebrity endorsements, and that you buy "healing herbal tea blends" and expect them to work. :)

You’re not sure he was serious or not? He asked for nuclear rounds to poison his enemies... Irony might not have it’s own font but I’m pretty sure it was self evident in the original post.

HEY!

This thing bounced a 9.1 kilotonne nuclear warhead, just because you can't bounce a few measly tank rounds, don't go blaming the tank!

I’m from the uk. I understand what irony is, but we over here ain’t big on it.

I must have missed any irony in the original post. Where is it? All I read was a post about misadvertisement. Seemed a bit Whiney really.

I am disappointed if you took the OP literally.

 

Any good Englishman should be looking for the sarcasm and irony in any statement.

 

Only Americans think words mean only what they think they say.

Aaaarrrrrgggghhhhh. What makes you think I’m English? :izmena: I’m a bloody proud Scotsman dude.:great:

I was very tired when I first posted in this thread, and in my sleep addled mind I failed to see the irony of what the op posted.

But dude, this is the internet, and further, this is the WoT console forums. You never can tell for sure wether someone is being troll or serious sometimes.

Not having read any of the ops previous posts, I didn’t know wether he was being sarcastic or whining about WG.

To the op. My good sir, if your post was entirely sarcastic and ironic, I apologise for failing to see that. I am a cur sir. The fleas of a thousand camels infest various body parts on my worthless self. I bow to your greatness, and humbly beg your forgiveness kind sir.

Furthermore, I beg the internet to forgive me too and give me another chance at recognising the sarcastic greatness of the op and others like him.:amazed:

This is very true. I have read things on this forum that I thought, that I hoped, was sarcasm and it turned out not to be--and vice versa. Unless the sarcastic comment is followed by a ;) or a :hiding: or a  j/k, etc., there really is no way of knowing.

And that’s why I struggled to recognise wether he was being serious or troll in an entirely deadpan way.

There was nothing really in the op to identify either way.

Op, learn about the faces you can post in your comments. They help to identify wether you have the knives out for someone/something. Or wether you are being troll/sarcastic/ironic/funny. (Sarcasm). :great:

Especially on this forum, where the most asinine stuff is often posted as serious content.
