  2. Q: What about prem tanks?
    A: People look at stats more than ever. For example, when the Type 59 was released and people noticed how OP it is, they bought it en masse. By the way, I can tell you can expect something nice in the tech tree soon.

     

    I have a feeling we will have the non pref mm type 59 back on the tech tree after the christmas money grab shenanigans.

  3. Today
  4. Testserver is up

  5. aside from windows deciding its now going to randomly take up an extra 20-30gb of space on any given day or even hour. It just installed, by itself, with no prompting, the English UK language to my computer. and won't let me uninstall it. 

    Im thinking its soon time for a reinstall. this is rediculous. EVERY windows update feature, service, registry key, etc is disabled. and its still doing this shit

      If you do reinstall, switch to LTSB.

  6. Q: Is HE still problematic?
    A: It’s not a problem for us anymore.

      removing HE in all forms would be a legitimate balance decision

  7. Yesterday
  8. I am just counting the pref-8s... Just in case WG insist of taking fun from international-wide legal issues. So we might see M6 hull appears in front of a JPE, if Jagtiger(H) still a thing, two prem JTs at Tier 8, then 34-3 is just a D25 34-2, Type 59 not too far, SPershing still has spaced armour novelty okay, 111 112 could make 110 looks stupid, IS-6 Rusha so must buff OP, FCM? Fuck.

    May as well starts counting Tier 7s, E-25 go look how shit K.Jpz is, AT-15A... can rot like AT-15, FV201 + 20 = FV221 = Caernarvon.

    Huge business potential, Zero professional.

  9. How much effort (how many hrs/nights) would it take to get enough Fame points to buy one of the Clam Wars tanks with Bonds?

      Depending on what battles you get in, and how often you have battles, an hour or two per night is all you really need if you win the majority of your battles.  This is bare minimum for the tank.

    3. Hellsfog

      Hellsfog

      It's hard to say.  If you get a couple of wins versus a landowner a night you'll be fine.  Landing tourney battles give less fame so you will need more. 

    4. HemanathanRX7

      HemanathanRX7

      If you already have 4k bonds you just need to get bare minimum top by both players and clan i guess.

  10. I'm officially withdrawing (for the 3rd time probably) from the game as it is when frontline mode is over. I completely understand why a lot of people stopped playing randoms and well. I have made a grave mistake playing normally since the frontline mode implemented, i think I have lost a full % from my wr and my avg wn8 dropped from 3k recent to 2,4k~ish. Literally all games are lost and God, I didn't see this much of bots and very very bad players since I started playing (2013). I can't seem to carry in any tier, it's a total game of luck, and it all last for 2-3 minutes. On the plus side, I will have more time to run, work out and to read.

      It's bad, especially when the bots play arty. I had a friendly arty shoot me because I was hugging a tank. Once I cleaned the flank up, I went back and shot the arty to return the favor. Upon hitting the arty, it goes Help!, then starts driving to cover like I was an enemy tank. I was like, wtf, it's a god dam bot. It then proceeds to go back to shooting red tanks. Stupid tank did fairly well too because arty is hard to play.

      The game is fucking ebola currently. There is not a single aspect of it, that they didn't screw up.

      Being focused by the same arties at a 20 minute frontline game is also a great experience.

  11. Last week
  12. Thinking about buying EVGA GTX 1080 Ti just to complete my build. Going to do EVGA 90 days step up program when 1180 come out

    1. NightmareMk9

      NightmareMk9

      $800+ just for the video card?  I sure as hell hope it isn't JUST to play WOT?

      I think $500 is the MAX I ever spend on a video card.  I'm still running a GTX 970

    2. Fulcrous

      Fulcrous

      There's no guarantee there will be an EVGA card 3 months after the base 1180 though.

      Honestly, I don't believe in a hard launch within 3 months. It will probably be more around october.

    Bonds will be massively used in the future and they will always stay as a reward currency.

    Bonds are an encouragement for in-game activity of different kinds.

    Players will be able to buy a lot of things with them, from camouflages, some specific HESH rounds, to various Premium vehicles that were withdrew from sale, etc.

      Good think I've been accumulating them then. I have 25k+ 

  14. So I ground the Caernarvan out almost completely playing Frontline and now I am grinding out the Panther II on FL as well.  I had a 278k credit game in the Pii last night, what a fricking godsend its been to salvage shitty tier 8s.

      I think the only Tier VIII I've not ground out yet... the AMX 65t. Blech. Frontline might be the stock grind salvation...

    3. Kolni

      Kolni

      Caernarvon is probably the one T8 I'd actually grind in randoms over frontline :doge: T10 DPM on a T8 with workable armour LUL

    4. HowitzerBlitzer

      HowitzerBlitzer

      Caernarvon is far from a shitty tier 8 now, WG always overdoes the buffs and won't backpedal for a while.

  15. If you work in IT and control user email accounts: Check for emails being forwarded and for rules forwarding messages. Ive found several violations lately due to users being Phished

      BUT THE UGANDAN PRINCE NEEDS MY FUCKING HELP

  16. I just realized, I haven't played a single random game since the 5x weekend, just Frontline. It has problems, but it's a breath of fresh air for the game. It needs a couple of more maps and perhaps different tiers at different times (tiers 6-9), a few performance tweaks, something to discourage spawn-camping and that's pretty much it.

      I'm waiting for Frontline to end and the server to empty because every one has finally experienced non-shitty WoT and can't go back.

    3. Kymrel

      Kymrel

      Yeah, I may take a break again when they shut down Frontline.

    4. kariverson

      kariverson

      Same. Not even the x5. I got in one by mistake (didn't switch to FL before pressing battle) and I hated my life afterwards. 

  17. SO.. WG says they need to fix prefMM tanks by changing alllll of those tanks, rebalance everything, test them out so they can FIX THE MM right?

    Well.. you know how else they can fix this issue?  +1/-1 MM.. everything becomes prefMM.. which do you think takes more work to enable?

    Fixing 10+ tanks or.... changing the MM brackets to +/-1.  Hmmmmm

    What's the actual goal here?  Overbuff and sell more. .

      Agreed, but don't you think it would be easier to balance/tweak between tiers at +/- 1? I mean, they've so far failed with +/- 2.... maybe on purpose.

      The cynic in me sees their past rhetoric and their decisions.  It seems they really want to encourage people to get to tier 10 regardless of whether the player wants to play at 10. 

      Well, I found this funny:

      T10 is their "endgame" and a big money sink, of course they want you to get to T10 so you'll either buy prem tanks or prem time (or both).

  18. lmao at WG tryin to make us pay extra to swap their garbagely balanced tanks

    1. Tman450

      Tman450

      Getting rid of pref MM destroys the KV-5, regardless of how much they buff it. Fuck WG.

  19. Rip pref MM tanks.

    https://worldoftanks.com/en/news/general-news/preferential-premiums-perfection/

    Bad idea on this one WG. Also, note how they sort of just added it on at the end quickly to try and detract from the fact.

      Unless the T-34-3 gets 225mm pen, 270mm HEAT, 0.36 acc and 2.5s aim time, with similar or better mobility, the chances of me returning to WoT are about as likely as WG balancing this Pref MM tank change well. 

    3. Action

      Action

      for you people from europe: might there be a legal way to get my money back instead of gold? i brought premm MM tanks for a reason. WG always shied away of changing the prem tanks because of that but now they can?

    4. Politx_Killer

      Politx_Killer

      We can in Australia due to our consumer law.

  20. Removing prem mm is giving me more reasons not to play this game.

      That is too small of a sample size to judge anything off of.

      No types 5, no 268v4, no fv183, no badger, no 4005.

      I enjoy playing pref 8s simply for that reason, I don't have to deal with the cancer that is 10s in a tier 8

      This right here is the reason for pref MM.  You forgot JPE 100.

  21. Why play when you could watch someone else?  Save credits and frustration!  Visit www.twitch.tv/iserrant An laugh at HIS stupidity!

    Also lurking and willing to chat live in WoTLabs TS...

    Talk to me, Goose... I'm lonely. ^_^

  22. 30 Arty waiting for FrontLine.  About 15 tanks of all other classes.

    1. HemanathanRX7

      HemanathanRX7

      Is like ranked battles.

      All the shitters play spg to easily get general and prestige because they keep dying in tanks.

      Since I maxed out the rewards and whatnot,  I now routinely swap to my LTTB and bulldog or t92 back to back mid battle and yolo murder them all in the backfield.  Usually trailing a significant number of turds trying to chase me down and kill me.. win/win for my team.. they're too stupid to just sacrifice their arty. Still usually make Major/General anyways.

  23. Graduating with a psyc degree, a philosophy degree, and an EMR certification. What are my chances of not sleeping on the streets?

      100% if like everyone else with those degrees you go to law school.

    2. simba90

      I would have thought that EMR would have gotten you work?

      hazzgar

      Psychology should give you work but you need additional courses. Preferably in behavioral therapy.

       

      Philosophy grads actually get hired by big corporations but you can always go into neurocognitivism side of psychology, get a pHd and then your job prospects are also good. 

      EMR should get you a yurb too

  24. Totally forgot I still had this gem in a spam folder

      And people wonder why is there RU/soviet bias in a game made by a company from ex-soviet country or pretty much Russians. There's patriotic and then there's blindly patriotic, gues which ones are Russians?
