    Centurion Mk. I

    Chicken or the egg? Good players don’t play it for a reason. Mounted the top tracks and am now running vents which has tamed the gun handling a little. Wouldn’t mind so much if it had a bit more dpm. I don’t mind if I spray a few shots in either of my Caravans...

    FYI - 1196 gets you an Ace in the kv-4. When I last played the Cent, a few years back I’m sure that you needed close to 1400 to Ace it.

    It's all about players, not tank. It'a not popular (including entire line after Cromwell) among good and uni so average exp is rather low. Also there might be a time window when master badge requirements are so low - nothing new. In the very first battle in E-50M I've got ace for rather mediocre exp. qb was right?

    it wouldn't happen to you. you have no idea how much the arty focused increased when I hit purple, even from blue. It was at least doubled. I have literally had arty players spend the entire game following me around the map shooting no one but me. it doesn't help them win in the slightest, but it makes the purple player they're doing it to want to uninstall the game. I've recently been grinding a friends account who is 52% and yellow. Im playing the same way I usually play. Arty focus? nonexistent. The difference is literally day and night.

    That doesn’t change the fact that it’s generally underperforming. I did 3154 damage with only around 260 assisted for that ace. Would that even be a first class in a T-44?
  9. Firstly, no, you weren't: I actually thought some of your comments in this post were genuinely interesting, but either your powers of communication need improvement or you're taking the piss, because your reply beginning with "meh" sounded a tiny bit like you were denying what you had actually said. Secondly, how the fuck to do think people like me feel when you say things like "A friend of mine actually bots" (which is why I neg-rep'd you in the first place)? Did you misspeak - is he perhaps merely a distant acquaintance of your nextdoor neighbour; or are you firm buddies? (Rhetorical question). Because if you're really friends with someone who bots then as I see it you have the following acceptable choices: Convince him of the error of his ways, and strongly denounce his behaviour. Decide you have a spine, tell him you don't hang with people that lack a moral compass, and disassociate yourself from him; as opposed to: "...but botting artillery crosses the line twice and I feel bad for not blacklisting him". (Awww you feel bad). Fuck off and leave us in peace, because if you were at all familiar with the attitudes of the majority of people who frequent this thread, you'd know that bots (and those that appear to outwardly condone them) are the exactly what we stand against. Lastly, can you please clarify this statement: Because when you say "I''ve platooned with him" I assume you're referring to platooning in WoT, whilst the second part of that sentence clearly states he was not personally playing WoT, from which I can only surmise you were knowingly platooned with a bot.

    Working on that. Crew is still shit. Haven't tried food yet though. I probably should; the thing does seem to make credits well, even spamming HEAT. lol Aiming is for scrubs?

    Meanwhile my Cent is giving me really good results.
  12. Noting that they also made upper tiers easier on the credits at around the same time so it wasn't all one sided as far as the economy s concerned.

    Want to know how shit this tank is? 1255 base xp nets you an ace. Same territory as the Comet.
  14. Fresh from WoT Reddit:

    Chrysler K is not and has never been OP because it needs goldspam to function

      B1 was never OP,  you're thinking of the B2.

    3. MacusFlash


      That’s true. Chrysler K is not OP and it never been. It's simply broken.

    4. sohojacques


      I love how pubbies didn’t actually listen to why Foch raged about this tank, mistaking broken for OP, and bought it in droves.

    Echoing the above, it is very clear that changing gold ammo and consumables to have an optional credit cost wasn't "only" to appease the anti-pay2win crowd, there are financial benefits to it as well. Before credits for prem stuff: -in order to get prem ammo and consumables, you have to pay with gold directly -gold (mainly) costs real world money, hence pay2win -anti-pay2win crowd (ie. EU and NA) are unwilling to support this practice, so they are less likely to open their wallets After credits for prem stuff: -prem ammo and consumables can be bought with credits at a steep price, but this makes it less pay2win -using gold ammo and consumables will likely put a significant dent in your credit earnings -you can offset your credit deficit with prem time, playing prem tanks, or just git gud. -prem time and tanks costs gold (not counting tourneys/CW/whatever), ergo real money -prem time however gives more benefits than simply pay2win, it is a pay2grindless option -prem tanks can sometimes be fun -anti-pay2win crowd are now more likely to spend money, because the game isn't blatantly pay2win now In short, almost all the problems regarding OP tanks and powercreep are due to (very likely) deliberate financial reasons. Until WG starts losing money I don't see any of the problems getting fixed.
  16. Less than 300 people on the ANZ server at 7pm...
  17. The thing is that WG does this shit on purpose, people are far too kind to them and presume they're just bumbling around incompetently. That was probably true 5-6 years ago but today they're very keen on the business model they use: Give the people with T10 an easy time while making sure that gold spam is at its highest at that point by giving 8s and 9s just about enough prem pen to do something. Mr 45% gets to see big numbers and feel useful while the 9s still have things to do and the 8s are fodder. It's nothing new, they just moved the concept up in tiers, as I'm sure most of us remember grinding several horrible mid-tier tanks way back. WG frankly doesn't care about any playerbase outside RU and potentially China, as I have no idea how popular the game is there. It never mattered to them that EU and US spent far more dosh per capita, which is a bad move if you care about making more money but not necessarily if you're lazy and just want to make enough money. Business culture is quite different from place to place, the annoying thing is that WoT is a potentially great game which WG keeps ignoring. The real solution has always been the same, even back in 2010: Give tanks a half decent stock gun in terms of penetration and you solve most of the problems. Unfortunately, WG quickly went from "gold rounds should be used sparingly" to cackling like a maniac once they saw just how much god damn money people used on said shells. There are probably quite a few lazy whales out there who have pumped several hundred thousand dollaridoos into the game because you can bypass 95% of the game's problems with gold shells, equipment and food. Fixing the game's problems is not really a priority for WG, just as they don't care too much about the dwindling playerbase in the West.

    I assume we are talking about the 20 pounder? It's one of "those guns", which are just frustratingly bad at shooting where you point them and the 20 pounder is, along with the DCA45, probably the worst offender. It really isn't just about accuracy while secondary factors... factor in (sorry, just came home from a long work day night), like turret or hull traverse or movement. It just is inaccurate even fully aimed in for some reason, despite high final accuracy.

    So basically brawling....

    It’s pretty accurate once you spend the 5 minutes or so zooming in. However, the bloom is horrific, so shooting on the move / turning turret risks the shell ending up almost anywhere.

    Shit times indeed. But at least you could score the top gun from the caravan grind then. Seriously the gun handling: “0.3 dispersion so you can snipe”. This tank can’t shoot it way out of a wet paper bag.

    7/1 is better. You get the same hull armor as the Caern, a much sturdier variant of the turret and, finally, the L7. It has somewhat lowish DPM, but the Cent lives entirely from it's engine's grunt and the L7. Imagine that, I grinded through the tank before it got buffed.
