    The SP is really nice now, 202 base pen, better dpm, and it can sort of climb hills a little. My IS-6 on the other hand still has to retreat against most heavies it faces. I wish they would have left AP pen at 175 and given all the extra pen to the APCR so I could pen Type 4 and E-75 weak spots . . . The IS-6 gun handling buff is nice though, at least I bounce closer to where I was aiming

    Due to my profound love of the VK7201 and (assuming normal schedule) the campaign around the corner, I've been wondering... does anyone want an in-depth VK7201 guide/review from the guy with the highest 150+ game WR NA/EU in the VK7201?

    Ladies and Gentlemen - I present Angel___Kiss. A player so awesome that he has played 800 games in the P.43ter an average damage of...2. Totally not a bot though, otherwise WG's bot detection software would have detected him. And lets have a look at some other tanks - the P.43 bis. 653 battles with an average damage of also 2. The KV-1. To be fair, he is way better in this tank, averaging 4 damage a game. TOTALLY NOT A FUCKING BOT WG!

    What WG needs to do is a full rebalancing of every single tank in every single tier. This means instead of powercreeping their way to "balance" they should start nerfing things back in line to preserve a healthy power difference across tiers. As it stands there are less tanks that need buffs than there are that needs to be nerfed back to sane levels. Obviously nobody likes the idea of nerfs to their favorite time waster, but nerfs are exactly what is needed.

    I'm having the sneaking suspicion, that the outrage about the de-preferalization only had one impact on WarGaming: The marketing departement discovered their sales potential.

    3rd cancer of WoT after arty and xvm is map desing. In HD red line campers have lines of fire at most of hot zones. Sniping 500+ is now a meta. Fuck WG map department.

    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.

    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.

    Indeed. (At the risk of sounding like an average official forum poster...) I have long accepted that playing wot means you have to take the wins and the losses (& draws), even if some losing streaks are harder to take that others. I have no doubt that often players will get dealt what seems like a harsh run and rage-quit - with some "threatening" to quit permanently on the forums. I have occasionally felt that way also, but I'm grown-up enough to realise that decisions made in the heat of the moment may not stand the test of time. So let's be crystal clear: this decision is cold and calculated. Wot is a game; my understanding of a game is that a game is intended to be enjoyable. Sure, there it can include elements of challenge - but it must still be enjoyable. Well fucked if I enjoy wot anymore. Sick of playing 10's when in an 8. In tier 8 you should see the following: All 8's 5/10 - as top tier 5/10 - as bottom tier 3/5/7 - as top tier 3/5/7 - as middle tier 3/5/7 - as bottom tier I realise that the Asia region has limited players, especially when I am able to play, but I feel like I see #6 ~80% of the time, and #2 & #4 %5 of the time. I tracked the data for a while ages ago - although it wasn't quite that bad but it was definitely slanted towards seeing 10's. Data aside, I'd argue that perception is just as important, because a perception is all people need to make decisions - they don't always wait or care for the evidence. Once you have the perception of being continually fucked over it affects the enjoyment. Enjoyment doesn't base itself on facts. So then you get to the logical point of queuing up in a 10 instead of an 8, because why disadvantage yourself. Naturally all this makes grinding credits... sup-optimal. It also makes you wonder why you have any 8's at all. Sure, you can play 6's - say hello to tier 8's (how these fuckers got top tier in an 8 I have no idea). And of course there's the quality of play at tier 10 (and other tiers). My last ever 113 game (as it turned out to be) was a case in point: Ruinberg, full tier 10 game; BC25t camping behind a TD in the far corner overlooking field. Sure, I've played lightly armoured meds at tier 10, I know you can't frontline - but neither can you be too passive. The guy did fuck all damage - **surprise**. But it's not a one off - shit like that happens every. fucking. game. I struggle to recall a game in recent times that felt balanced, most are one-sided so that (a) you get quickly get fucked up or (b) you struggle to deal any damage. Oh and when you do get that chance **surprise** RNG springs a "magic moment" on you. Aggro. I've been calling out pricks on my team / raging for a while - not all the time, sometimes I'm philosophical and move on. Who needs that shit? I don't rage at my family, or my colleagues... I can't even really blame Feet any more... prick. And as much as these fuckwits might deserve it, I could do without being continually put in a position where raging appears to be a perfectly justified reaction. Cortes So fuck it. I can manage my own expectations, I can take the good with the bad, but I'm not WG's bitch, and I'm not going to take this monotonous up-the-arse un-fun any more. Wot occupies a large part of me, that will create a hole that needs to be filled (not my arse, oh wait...). getting around that will take a bit of grieving - I have no doubt: I wanted to play this game forever. So after sleeping on it (more than once) I'm going full Cortez: scuttling the ships, burning the bridges, scorched earth. Each new day will be a day not being shat on by SPG's, MM and RNG.

    I wouldn't trade in any premium that you can never buy back. The SP is great though.

    Elimination: Tier 9 - 2018

    The best is getting tracked by own arty, talk about next level. TBH my least favorite thing about arty right now is their ability to hit moving targets (light tanks) with a high damage splash that ALWAYS tracks. Getting tracked in the open for 600 damage by a tier 8 arty should not be something a T100 moving 70 kph should be afraid of - yet here we are.

    Tier 10 on NA right now has nothing to do with skill. Games will literally come down to which flank of pubbies is able to abuse the others' idiocy the best. If you want to win, tanks with a 3 of the 4 combinations of high alpha/survivability/mobility/gun handling are the way to go. Everything else is really difficult to attain 70%+ wr solo barring the top of the server. The only tank I can reliably pull 70%+ whilst maintaining high dpgs right now is the 7201. Tier 10 is very unforgiving due to the influx of poor players throwing their tanks away like candy on halloween.

    Basically, it boils down to you having a greater responsibility to carry your entire team. You are no longer towards the bottom of the food chain. You are top dog, which means your plays dictate the outcome of the game more greatly than they ever have. This is why my misplays in the 113 results in losses if you look at my thread about the 113. You need to be balance aggressiveness, positioning, saving HP, map awareness, etc etc. Wrong plays will be punished even more greatly which cause you to lose more often. You need to get really comfortable with your tank's playstyle too. I'm currently on a 71% WR, 3.8k DPG streak on my E100 since I picked it up again because I am more comfortable with it than my 113 which is currently clawing its way back to 50%. This is solved by playing games. Put up replays if you are absolutely clueless about what to do, and keep learning from your mistakes. Edit: My personal learning curve is in no way the best way to learn, I've more or less been playing 4 fun with lots of breaks in between with RL. I did the old get good at each tier progressively, where my skill level more or less kept up to certain levels through the grinds, so if you look at my tanks, you can sort of figure out when I grinded what or when I bought what.

    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.

    O-I: Derp 2.0 - The Derpening

    Jap heavies have flat armour weak to high pen, and kind of crappy AP guns. They only really get good when you get the derps since you then can afford to snap a lot of mid range targets and aim for tracks - limiting exposure - and making your armour effectively better.
