  1. Past hour
  2. I just had a battle where I fired 15 fully aimed shots.  13 of the 15 shots went to the outer 1/4 of the aim circle. WTF RNG???  Seriously?  WTF??  Basically we lost the battle because none of my shots went anywhere near where they were aimed.  Thanks RNG!

  3. Today
  4. I'm embarrassed  to ask but what is the best cancer line to grind for both missions and to have a usable tier X? 

  5. Casual 40t mark.

      Some people say that the Lorr is better than 50 100, what do you reckon?

    2. Fulcrous

      Hard to say. I reckon they are equally good but one can influence a match more heavily than the other.

      A lot of the people claim the 40T as superior to the 50 100. Part of this is because of how "easy" the 40T is as its clip time of 32ish seconds is more forgiving and therefore managable by most players. Consequently more people can play it to a higher level (hence high skill floor - it is hard to perform poorly but easy to do well). As woth any autoloader, you still need to know typical positions, clip time, future positioning, flow of the game and so forth to continue being effective.

      The 50 100 in contrast requires you to know everything you would do in/know about the 40T but to a greater extent. The 50 100 is a specialist role. If you cannot play the tank to near perfection, you cannot/should not play the tank over a 40T. This used to be the case in WGL when 7/54 was still a thing. The people who played 50 100s could single-handedly change the flow of a match with one clip. The same concept held true in pubs. You HAVE to make sure your clips hit at least 5/6 (roughly a tier 8 hp pool) in order to be relevant. Any less and you are useless as the near 50s clip time crippled your team. For this reason it has a very low skill floor as it was highly unforgiving and very easy to fuck up. However, I believe mastery of the tank puts it above the 40t for the simple fact that it snowballs any engagement out of control.

      I would think of it like the batchat 25t as the 50 100 and a batchat with 4 shells (can no longer 1 clip t10 meds) and a 30s clip as the 40t. While the reduced clip time makes it easier to play for all skill brackets, nothing comes close to the game changing prowess of a mastered bat.

      Tl;dr

      40T is better for more players due to managable clip but 50 100 has a higher skill cap and is also exponentially harder to play well.

  6. Yesterday
  7. Playing yesterday seem to have made me feel somewhat jaded by this game. Only won 50% of my 30 games but the way things seemed to go practically every match it felt like I won 10%. Even some wins felt like losses.

      I knew it! I could just feel there was something fishy going on. I'm going to run out and buy Warpack after work tonight cause I'm tired of this shit.

      You played 30 games? I get tired after like 3... And these aren't 3 tier 10 games, these are like tier 6/5/3 shit because I just returned.

    4. DirtyACE7

      I rarely play that many games in one day, usually it's anywhere between 7 and 15. I've also been sick so I imagine that contributed to my misery.

  8. Since when did this place stop displaying stats underneath forum users? (Yes, I've been gone a looooong time hahaha.)

      quite a long ago. I think it prolonged load times or some shit too much.

  9. So WG managed to fuck up Tier 10 strongholds as well. 10 vs. 10 with skillbased matchmaker means you fight the same damn tryhard clans even more frequently these days. 2x113, 2x5A, 1XS.Conq, 4x907 & 1xBC. Or GTFO.

    Or you can always spam superheavies and camp to win.

    So we're back to square one on this one, where tier 6 stronghold is the least cancer. I guess I'm just gonna have deal with light setups and focus fire and yolo tactics for now.

    I do get that some sorta skillbased matchmaker is needed for most of the clans to have a chance to compete, but sure is frustrating having to tryhard every damn game....

      If they just made it a/d with standard league maps and made you do a BO3, it would be fun and a great way for people to learn something similar to WGL.

      But WG keeps insisting on autistic modes.

      But that may actually get people interested in league, which WG constantly seems to fight. So many suggestions over the years have been ignored and it took way too long to make the format tier 10.

      On the other hand, team battles are just too boring if you are playing with good players and honestly I couldn't care less about strongholds nor advances anymore. Campaigns are the only mode which I enjoyed hence the pointing and ladder system and you have to be / be under a decent tl to gain points. Otherwise I would play random with 1 or 2 good friends of mine, but lately I noticed that the game suddenly stopped being a challenge and I reached some sort of peak. Yes statistics will be always important to me but it doesn't matter whether I get m48 marks in a week or in a month. Real life start to kick in and I have always played this game when I was still in university. @SaintLaurentius

  10. Why are the 416 and 430 II guns so derpy? The 416 felt like it missed easy shots and same thing on the 430 II.

      better accuracy and RoF vs higher AP pen? on a tank that spams HEAT anyway......

      :megadoge:

    3. Hellsfog

      Hellsfog

      I was recently having a conversation about which gun to use on the 430v2. The stock gun is better if you are spamming heat, which I hate doing because of cost. On the other hand does +19mm pen on the base round justify the slightly worse reload and gun handling? I'm on the fence. 

    4. skyf24

      skyf24

      stock gun. will +18 pen make a difference? maybe on the occasional -25% rng roll, otherwise nah. It's just so incredibly infuriating to have such poor base pen, meh alpha, and then such an expensive AP round. FFS my revalorise has 1 less pen and 70 more damage for half the price.

       

  11. STRV S1 or M4 Rev? No need for crew trainers, but I'm looking for a tier 8 regular MM prem and those strike me as the two most interesting. Can't afford the Lowe, unfortunately, as I'm buying exclusively with in-game gold.

      It's actually worse when top tier in 3/5/7 because you can't push in it. I find Stalingrad and Karkov particularly brutal when top tier.

      If ypu want to camp and do nothing useful winrate wise but still make credits, the strv is the way to go.

      If you want to be useful for wins but gp your credit making because of reliance of gold on super heavies, the rev.

  15. Was the obj416 gun changed when the t54 rebalance was implemented? It feels waaay less accurate now. 

    1. Haswell

      Haswell

      D-54 got changed probably as per the rebalance, but why are you using that gun in the first place when the other one is objectively better?

      Edit: was thinking of the 430 II, sorry...

  16. I play the IS to prepare for the patch. I just lost a tier 8 game on sacred valley, where we had a VK100001P. The enemy team had one tank that could have pen it with standard rounds frontally and a total of TWO tanks who could pen it with gold rounds. He died last I have to give him that, but you know he played it safe as in camping behind TDs. This is as easy as it gets with +-2mm. 60k games under his belt btw.

    He doesn't even have to jump over the bar, just kind of step over it.The bar is already on the ground. The only thing WG can do is make the bar thinner so this guy won't stumble in it. As long as people are allowed to shoot back at the enemy this can't get any easier.

    I just lost it. /rant

      Campinovka, we get a T95 as top tier, in a +2mm game (and no arty).

      He dies in first minute (and was not even afk...)

  19. fucking lul, I added up the shards I used to get the last decoration for Modern, a whopping 26,000 (boxes+tree/house)

    I got the gingerbread house 6 times, but didn't get the one I needed to finish and get the camo

      I asked WG about this (if it's a bug since repetetive generation is a problem) but they told me they can't check it and I should ask on the forums. They banned me on the forums for using irony (seriously that's the reason the mod gave me)

    2. FavreFan4ever

      FavreFan4ever

      Yeah I had a similar situation, and after crunching the numbers found that I had less than a 7% chance of NOT getting the one decoration I needed. The Holiday Ops were just a few tweaks away from being a fantastic event, instead they became needlessly frustrating when you tried to get that last decoration.

    3. monjardin

      monjardin

      They must have had different probabilities for the decorations. It was too consistent.

  20. I swear to god I don't fucking care about the HD maps if WG can't get their fucking collision system right. I missed 5 fucking shots because they hit an invisible wall. Fuck this Kazakhstan level coding in this god forsaken game.

  22. Dear journal.
    Yesterday, a stranger in random battle shielded me INTENTIONALLY. 22k+ battles and this is the second time I have seen this behavior. I am sad because I will never see him again.

      I will shield a random low hp ally regardless of skill because I know the second he dies I'm getting rushed.

  23. Someone called me a 40 year old dwelling in his mom's basement. I told him I was 35 and married, TYVM.

    generalham123 (1/15/2018 1:29:41 AM) haha you are playing a videogame at night instead of having sex with your wife... Interesting marriage...

      Do you think ANY of them had the one ornament I needed?

      Well played, WG. See you in space.

      At least I have a dildo tank now. FML.

      My favorite thing as a Derp T49 player is coming across a tank that's flipped on its side giving easy access to engine deck, turret roof, or bottom hull plate
