  1. Today
  2. Turned in an assignment at 11:59 (due at midnight, of course). 

    Now feel like saying hi to all the masochists here.

    ....

     

    Hello. o/

  3. Ran into my long neglected T29. It asked: "what is...'power creep'?". So I took it for a spin, hoping to explain the phenomenon. Failed to come up with an answer.

      I took mine out for a spin the other day, had a nice game too. He's a good little tank, and he got 3k damage, 2 kills, then an STRV 103-0 demonstrated the concept of powercreep to my poor little hull down boy, blasting right through his turret face with standard ammunition while sitting invisible 300m away.

  4. Fuck 268 V4s

    also fuck weeb heavies lmao

     

  5. Yesterday
  6. 22 games from 86% to 95, 430U's (un)expectedly high.

    Great tank tho, at least for pubs its a superior 113.

    1. nabucodonsor

      A 403u trades HP and gun depression (to the side which is kinda hard use if you are not used to it) for handling and better armour which nullifies the advantages the 113 has anyway. The extra protection compensates for the 15% less hp. Considering you can work around the gun depression it is obvius how much better the 430U is. And this is my problem with the tank, not the fact it is so good but it kills other tank's niche proving once again how bad that idiot Murazor is.

      6.6k combined? what the actual fuck? 430U reqs are higher than 907 or what?

    3. CarbonWard

      CarbonWard

      at 93% i lost 0.05 mark with 5100 combined, so i figured the 3 mark expected is around 5500.

      Also, 430 don't really lose depression compared to 113, with how the gun is positioned 113 is never gonna realistically be able to use that additional side depression anyhow without being suicidal.

      but still, 113 is still better than 430U in clan wars simply due to the extra HP, if it does get used at all these days, which not really since most clans opt for 268V4 and 5As as their mobile spearhead.

      Running shoes are lyfe. They're just comfortable and my feet don't feel like they're stuck in a sauna. Saucony, Nike, Mizuno, Brooks, Asics, etc, etc are all good brands.

  9. I have been playing arty to get some missions done to get the tanks easier (and because my ping has been very bad lately). Dear lord it is not worth it. I can understand playing for mission, but playing it as your main class is just sad. After some games I feel dirty and even more bored than before. How can people play all those games and not get tired of it. It's so fucking boring. At this point it's better to quit and do something else. Hell get a hobby, do drugs anything is better than this.

    WG plz remove it not because it's bad for the game, but because it is bad for who plays it.

      when i have a bad game i play arty to make other people have bad games.

      recently i've had a huge hardon for splashing hot gold HE loads all over cute 268 v4 faces

      cancer killing cancer what's not to love

      @Errants how can you enjoy it? I get so bored of just clicking left and right. If wanted to HE people to death I'd get back my t49 (which I will). 

      And another thing with artillery is that you can see how bad people are at playing this game. It's like watching a reality show on bad players.

  10. How the fuck do I make the new SU-101 work? I'm only at the second 100 but this I can't seem to make the depression of use at all, any bump and my gun literally points at the sky

    1. Deus__Ex__Machina

      Deus__Ex__Machina

      the only redeeming factors the original SU-101 had were DPM and accuracy.

      but WG being WG, they took away both of those things in return for a mediocre armor buff that wont mean shit unless you are fighting tier 6's......

  12. So I traded in my T34B for a Lowe. I've been watching some streams and I keep seeing players using the GLD instead of vents. Is that really the best choice?

      Why would u even use gld in the first place. The gun is great.

    3. DirtyACE7

      DirtyACE7

      Yeah I was surprised but the streamers I watched, whom are all super unicums, used a gld and it kind of made me think why they picked that.

    4. Kolni

      Kolni

      It's because the tank is really, really slow. When your DPM is shit and all your damage comes out of engagements rather than cleanup you really can't afford to miss shots. You're going to outpaced by your entire team in both DPM and positioning after the choke points are broken, so the GLD is there just for people who don't want to risk losing out on damage whenever they can get it. 

       

      It's obviously wrong though, but it's a fairly legitimate idea. Vents won't give you much either since final acc is already good and the biggest reason for it would honestly be for the small mobility boost it'd give rather than gun related ones. If you run optics on it there's at least a chance that you can find people at range and rack up some cleanup that way. If your aim is good then optics should generally work better since your vision is something you can play on very well with the high base VR. It's a very good equipment piece on something that is generally too slow to play on mobility. This lets you play on range a little bit better and for a tank that sucks at moving it's a pretty big plus. That's how I see it.

  13. Finally got my gaming pc back up, but i missed so many days i  won't be able to get tank reward gold.

    I think i just beat the game until they start up the tank reward missions again.

  15. Unpopular Opinion: 140 is better than 907.

      If it works better for you, it works better for you. The poking style of corner fighting is nice in tanks with good frontal armor and forward mounted turrets. I used to love doing that in my Super Pershing back when it had armor.

    3. nabucodonsor

      nabucodonsor

      I agree 907 is good only at sidescraping. The frontal armour is easy to pen. You can just autoaim. Also 140 can sidescrape with the similar efficiency. Also 907 turret is worse.

    4. Strigonx

      Strigonx

      After having played the 140 after the turret buff, the 907 huge overmatchable plate triggers me way too much.

      I like 5th stage. my absoloute favourite episode is S5 E1, the specific scene, im sure you know the one, with Wataru. 

      but yeah, some of the magic from the earlier seasons is lost, but it makes up for it in beautiful car porn

      Has much as the Type 5, Type 4 et. als. are annoying. The 268v4, on the hand, is just broken.

      leggasiini

      I like how Type 5 goes from the one of the worst tier 10s into one of the most canceorus ones. In all cases it has been a hated vehicle in a way or other. Poor thing.

      Was buffing the bloody 14cm really that hard? I guess it doesnt have possibility for P2W gold HE so ehhh. I wish they removed the derp but that wont happen.

  19. So I finally got around to di-lidding my 3770K. I didn't have any of that fancy silver thermal paste so just used a little Artic silver 5. Stock temps dropped 20c across the board.  I was never able to get any type of overclock on this chip as it seemed like a bad one.  I went into the bios, selected voltage offset then gave it a negative  -.075v and stuck the multiplier at 44. 20 minutes on prime 95 and it's stable.  Max temps 81/84/87/83c @1.296v Max. I reckon I can get that voltage way down. 

     

    Just a quick question.  What is the ballpark voltage at idle for these chips?

      Haswell

      IIRC the "safe" voltage for 24/7 usage is 1.3v. Anything higher you risk significantly degrading the lifespan of your chip.

      No idea if Asus boards still have voltage regulation issues since the last board I owned was a P8P67 Pro, but you're on the right track using voltage offsets.

      As Folt said before idle voltage is meaningless if you leave the C-states on.

  23. I don't understand rerolls. That's a lot of time and money to waste for vanity. But I really, really don't understand rerolls who pad to green stats and teal WR in low tier tanks.

      When your vanity and sense of self-worth outweigh your reasoning abilities. Nevermind shitty rerolls, what about all those legendary 45%ers who perceive themselves to be the greatest gift to the game.

Anyone who knows where the w key is is safe, regardless of stats. If I see someone on my blacklist has discovered the location of the w key I remove them from it.

      I know some series are animated only. However, by the virtue of being anime they are automaticaly cancer anyways. Just go read a manga of the same genre, faggots.

  27. Streamed CW last night - tl;dr it does not go well when your caller leaves. Not to mention Des Moines players which go afk when the strat is layed out!

  28. Did they do something to T10 platoon MM (2players) ?? It's freaking amazing !

      In Eu there is no ranked battle atm. And i meant that platoon MM in T10 was better than solo T10 and that doesn't really matter whether there is ranked or not.
