    Great Question. No, we started out as the 116th in Company of Heroes Online but when we moved to WWIIOL we chose to be in there as The 16th Infanterie our of respect for a long established BGE squad.

     

    So basically all the games we are deployed in right  now (World of Tanks, Company of Heroes, Battlefield series ) we go by 116th Panzer except BGE.

    Cheers,

    Waffenator (Eberbach in BGE)

    No Sir,

     

    As the game develops and our skin makers develop more talent in clan we will be producing "captured" skins for our members with Russian and US tanks.

    Currently I have no German tanks. M4 Easy 8, M4, and working my way towards the T-54 on the russian tier but a long way to go...(still on the A20).

    However, many of our members have Tigers, Tiger II, and 4 or 5 of them have the Maus.

    Thanks for asking. Both, personally I will have two seperate accounts on each.

     

    We have a mix of Americans and Europeans..many of us want the flexibility to switch so maybe 40% of us will have dual accounts.

    I dont think it will be a problem to field two fully stocked companies consistantly as we are already able to get 15 to 20 people together, even over the holidays, and about 4 tankser are joining us a day.

    The challenge for company play is getting everyone kitted properly and ensuring we are all on the same page regarding coordination and teamwork. However, by mid january we should be ready for consistent company battles just as we are now well versed in Platoon level work.

    Here is a way to get a beta key instantly and a free tank with it.

    Our clan plays all tanks not just german ones but we are working on skinning the "captured" tanks with german markings.

    The clan had a blast during the 5x XP days. Most members now have at least a tier 6 with probably over half at tier 10.

    As an example,

    On my US account I have a tiger and DB plust all the tier 6 vk

    On my EU account a T23, T29, and T-43

    Would have been to the pershing but wanted to get a US account started to support our members there.

    Lately we have been getting a large number of Aussie players which is great as they fit right in with the rest of the team.
