      Grind in frontline mode. 6 million credits is very easy to get especially if you have some credit boosters.

    3. Kymrel


      Why are you broke? Grinding credits in Frontline is easy and fun.

    4. HemanathanRX7


      Why you have no credits tovarisch?
      You can get some for the low price of 10000usd :doge:

  7. This 3x exp event is dumb lol. I am getting 5-7k exp on every win. It takes like 50 games to finish a grind from 9 to 10

      Started as a hobby back in the stone age, ended up doing it professionally.

      @Rexxie I've been working professionally as a developer for just over 11 years. I also do some coding on the side on whatever random thing takes my interest, although my personal projects have a habit of withering on the vine. Mostly I work in Python and Scala right now, in the past I've done a fair bit of ES5.1 and ES6 (JavaScript to humans), PHP (never again) and Java (also never again).

      I got my start pretty early. When I was in primary school I found some books in the local library on programming in BASIC. They were really out of date at the time (they were for 80s computers like the Spectrum whereas this was the early 90s) and my family didn't own a computer, although a computer lab had just been created at school running machines with MS-DOS. Anyways, I got to learning BASIC and some friends and I spent hours writing out code for linear, choose-your-own-adventure text-based adventure games. When I say writing, I mean we literally wrote them down on paper :-) I think when we eventually got a chance to try them on the computers but I can't recall if any of them worked.

      Later my family got a computer (initially borrowed from one of my Dad's co-workers but later we got one of our own) and around the same time we got dial-up internet. I was in secondary school at this point. I was already using Linux at this point as before we even got a PC at home I'd found out about it and ordered a 6-CD set that included a couple of distros (Slackware, Redhat 3.0.3 Picasso, some others I forget) and various contrib packages of applications. I think I was mad about Linux for a good year before I even got to run it :-) 

      Anyways, with the internet I somehow found out about C and downloaded a tutorial and taught myself C (compiling on Redhat 3.0.3 with GCC). Later I got a book on C++ (one of those terrible C++ for dummies books) and, in theory, learned C++ but honestly that book was pretty terrible.

      By the time I got to varsity I was experienced enough (which is to say, not very in reality) that learning Java in first year was dead easy which in turned set me up for a habit of slacking that ultimately didn't help. At varsity we worked in Java (1st year) and C++ (2nd year on) for practical (which I usually did well in) while covering all the usual theory (data structures, complexity theory, etc) which I hated and tended to do poorly at in tests. In the end I didn't complete my degree and after spending 6 months in the UK looking for work (I only found shitty temp jobs outside of the field) came back to South Africa and returned to Cape Town a few months later.

      Moved in with this girl (who's now my wife) and managed to get a Junior Java Developer job at a local company via a recommendation from a friend of hers and I haven't looked back since.

      We all started with "Hello World" :serb:

      That's normal @lordawesome7, I prefer EE more than CS right now.

  10. Questionable tactics, questionable music, questionable viewing! All at

    Yup, doing that streaming thing again.

    1. Haswell


      Sorry mate, went skydiving today to celebrate grad and EMR. Hope the game wasn't terrible :serb:

  11. Haven’t played since February. Stopped by to see if the 268v4 has been nerfed yet. I see they are going to take pref-MM away from my tanks. See you again in 3 months. 


  12. Asus 1080ti Turbo for $560 worth it? :minidoge:

    1. Folterknecht
    2. MAJEST1C


      Yes, it's actually for $560

    3. Folterknecht


      As long as you watercool that thing, go for it. That aircooler is the biggest PoS.

  13. PSA: 1.0.2 CT is out, includes the new 10s (K-91, Obj. 277), HD Klondike, newbie experience improvements, enhanced customization for tier VI and all VIII, and 268 V4 nerf

  14. Fjords map is so broken. I really wonder how it got onto the live server as it is.  The 'new' test server version isn't any better.  Maybe I'm missing some thing that players who are actually good at the game see and can make this map work.


  15. Remember Drinking while pregnant does have repercussions, just look at this cursed image!


    1. Errants


      Screen images simulated.

  16. 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.

  17. 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

      I cant switch from win 10. But what I want to do is revert it back to a ~6 month old build. Seriously, windows update is disabled yet its telling me its got udates ready to install every day

    3. Medjed


      I think once i decide it's time for clean install that i'll go with LTSB version.

    4. Assassin7


      what even is LTSB?

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


    1. Fulvin


      removing HE in all forms would be a legitimate balance decision

  19. Last week
  20. 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.

  21. 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


      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


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

  22. 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. 

    3. TAdoo87


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

    4. Vindi


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

  23. 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

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

    3. MAJEST1C


      @NightmareMk9 I dont play WoT anymore. It wouldn't make sense if I have a 5-8k build with a GTX 780 SC :minidoge:

      I am more of doing this for fun

      @Fulcrous the EVGA 1080 was released at the same time or some 2-3 weeks later.

    4. Fulcrous


      Iirc Nvidia has a new greenlighting process of 3rd party GPUs now which takes a couple months.


    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.

    1. kariverson


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