    It's the only option. If you're putting yourself in a position against an enemy that has torps like that, you're doing it wrong. Chase them away from outside of torp range. Or if you must charge into torp range, you can SEE THE TORPS WHEN THEY LEAVE THE TUBES. Waste of 3 skill points and health. If you're not Dreadnaught-ing in a BB, you're not BB-ing

    Round 1 of elimination is over. Round 1 ended because there were so many tanks that the thread was dying out. So i ended Round 1, and every tank with 10 or less points got "saved". 18 of them had over 10 points. Now its battle between 18 ultimate shit tanks! ------ If you're unfamiliar how these topics work, let me explain - I'll give you a list of choices with a number after them. From them, you increase the "best" choice by 1 and decrease the "worst" choice by 3. Each user is allowed to do this a maximum of once per day. You must explain your choices, even if very briefly. When a choice hits 0, it is eliminated. I'll keep track of in what order they were eliminated in the OP, and the end result is some form of interactive community aggregate ranking! Pretty neat. Highlight your increase with RED and your decrease with GREEN. And this is most important note: Upvote the "worst" tank by +1 and "save" the "best" tank from the list by giving it -3, NOT VISE VERSA! LET THE ROUND TWO BEGIN!

    Centurion Mk. I

    I think (and this is only my opinion) this is one of the last tanks hated by WG. RL Centurion was an amazing piece of steel, tracks and gun and it was able to knock out IS-3 in Korean war without a problem and then rekt Soviet tanks in Izrael's wars. What to do in WoT? Nerf it so much that's one of the worst MT on its tier and in the very same time make IS-3 OP. Reminder: it's just my opinion.

    How To: T44-100 Marathon

    Not really. Im just getting some nations done to see if I want to spend $20-30 at the end of the campaign for a premium. Again, for others this is worth it so they have a premium tier 8 tank they can keep

    Centurion Mk. I

    Double the IS-3s. Suka blyat balancing at its best. Do yourself a favor, if the 7/1 will be your first tier 9 medium as well, hold back on it and get a T-54 instead.

    Same. The only times I don't really get the opportunity to use all 5 is when one team has a very quick failure cascade, or if I have a massive fuck up that causes me to die early. There is a reason it looks like I am drunk driving my ships. TA is for people that don't have the good sense to realize that they shouldn't travel in straight lines for extended periods if they have been detected by an enemy. Furthermore now that all ships get situational awareness without having to uses a skill point you should always know when you are detected by a ship that you can not see yourself. If people are to dumb to know that they have been detected, and to know to zig zag when they are detected, then I usually just assume that they are retards and that a skill like TA probably isn't going to do much to fix their inherent stupidity.

    Desperate for help

    I just wanted to post about how much WoTLabs has helped me improve. I still remember posting this thread when I was just under 1500 for WN8 and feeling desperate and out of ideas. Then I joined M-I-T and subsequently M--M and also got much help (indirectly) from various purple players on here and here I am now. Still have so much more to learn but just thinking about where I used to be. I also want this to be another example to those who are struggling. Keep at it, don't ever give up. Watch plenty of replays and ask plenty of questions but the main thing is to just keep going with persistence and you will improve. I guarantee you!

    apparently having a discussion on the ARP ships on the WoWS forums is like having a discussion on arty on the WoT forums. man, some people really hate it despite the fact they have the ability to completely disable it and not see a thing. i have no idea what their problem is.

    Frozen would feel like being shot with a bloody marble at 300 fps (Feet per second) and if firing frozen paintballs, I would then doubt they would have it at max legal speed. Speedball guns can got anywhere up to around 550-600fps. I wouldn't give a fuck what I'm wearing, I would never stand in front of someone firing frozen paintballs.

    yeah right now at tier 5 and 6 only a few ships can play well in tier 7-8 (warspite,minekaze,fuso[debatable],molotov) Basically anything that has oversize guns for its tier and in the minekazes case just being plain better then the tier 6 and 7.

    Had fox on my team the other day when I was on tilt, pressed the shut down button before the game started but computer refused to turn off. So just ended up playing, yoloing at the end to spot our cap and a 183 derped his shot and I lived somehow for the win. Expected to see a unicorn, win lotto and see Saffee not roll a tank in WGL afterwards...ended up disappointed in all three.

    I just got the SU-100M1...

    SU-100m1 is OK, maybe even good. You NEED TO know where to go on each map to not get shafted. You do not go face to face with enemy heavies or TDs if you can help it, and you flank or wolfpack with medium tanks to maximize your DPM. Armor is decent: mantlet is made of Stalinium and you are small enough to actually dodge shots at range. The best thing on this TD is the gun (DUH), because it's so accurate and aims fast, you mostly autoaim targets and let stalin guide the shell. Unlike the Church of 152ism you fire extremely quickly so it's an excellent idea to just fire one full reticule snap and then fire your next one aimed, like Cromwell. Overall I think the tank is OK, it's leagues above other steaming pile of **** at Tier7.

    A New Old Noob

    Hello, I haven't posted on WoT Labs much at all since I didn't play PC, but now I've returned so might as well start doing it. Why did I stop playing PC? Well, for 7,050 battles, I played this game on 5 FPS, yes, five frames per second on my 7 year old Acer laptop. I also got to Tier 10, I feel sorry for the poor guys who's teams I was on. Playing at a slideshow was an awful experience in terms of aiming and movement and it's the reason why my stats are so horrendously bad. The perfect opportunity to stop playing hindering every team I was on came when WoT Blitz (Yes, the mobile version of WoT for when you're having a dump) was announced in early 2014. Finally, I can play on 60 FPS, I thought, and instantly quit PC. Since I knew every mechanic from PC and all the tanks at the time I was instantly a Blitz Unicum upon release, and played for 2 years. A few days ago, I got a monster Gaming Laptop for college, and started playing PC WoT again. Upon coming back I said to myself "What was I thinking?" when I saw the AMX 50 B; one of the hardest Heavies to play correctly (IMO) in my garage. No, I didn't jump straight in to it, instead I started off with the M4 in order to relearn old, reworked and new maps and tanks and worked my way up the tiers when I thought I was ready, so I don't screw over my teams at Tier 10 instantly (All solo BTW). It's felt so good outplaying and completely destroying Unicums in my T34 when they're in their T110E5s on 3/4 health, so I'm happy with how I've been performing. I don't know what to say about my recent stats, since I know that what Unicum players think is average/good will differ from what average players think is average/good, so I'll leave it to you to decide whether I'm good or not (Lemme know what you think if you don't mind ). So that's pretty much it. I'm gonna stop so it doesn't look like I'm posting my life story, but I'm happy to be back in WoT and am hoping to stop looking at red in my overall stats! P.S Yes, recent WR sucks. Was on a massive losing streak which I then ended with a 7K AMX 50 B game, but I had 70% the day before.

    Overpriced Crap

    You would think being *nix based would translate to OS X being decent but given that amount of problems I've heard people running into I am forced to conclude that OS X, just like Windows and Linux, is prone to breaking. That's great, maybe one day I'll be a rich, fat first-worlder that can afford a high DPI screen Speaking from a security perspective the ONLY reason there are less viruses for OS X is because it is simply less widely deployed than Windows. Being *nix based is not some magic pill against computer viruses and if virus authors thought for a second that targetting Macs would be particularly profitable they would jump at it. Thing is, virus authors are quite content to target older versions of Windows that are still widely deployed but no longer receive security updates. Realistically, if the Windows/Mac share (Which is about 85% / 10%) magically flipped around tomorrow you can bet your ass the virus authors would start showing you just how insecure OS X is. Don't feel bad though, the basic fact is all computers are insecure, the only way to make them secure is to lock them in a chest, stick the chest in a block of concrete and thrown the concrete block in the sea and even then I wouldn't bet money on it. On a fun note, look at this: http://arstechnica.com/security/2016/09/stealing-login-credentials-from-a-locked-pc-or-mac-just-got-easier/ (TL;DR: The latest bit of high tech security fun, a USB device you can plug in to a running Windows/Mac/Linux machine which will *magically* unlock the host system in about 10 seconds. Be afraid :-) I would argue that the supposed simplicity of Macs is largely due to marketing from Apple claiming the OS is simple. Realistically it follows much the same paradigms as Windows and the various popular Linux DMs (Gnome, KDE, etc), has a few clever ideas (The Spotlight feature was genuinely clever and it's nice to see Windows 10 has adopted it) while also retaining a few "features" from early versions of Mac OS that, imho, are not actually helpful. Examples: Drag device to trashcan to eject. Pretty stupid but I'm sure some UI guru blew his load when he came up with it. Unified application taskbar at top of screen. I've ready up the reasoning on this and, honestly, I think it's bullshit and poor research. The claim is that it's easier to flick the mouse cursor to the screen edge than it is to the taskbar in a window. This may be true but it also ignores the ability to use the keyboard to activate the taskbar and also throws in this horrible UI curveball that I run into when I uses someone else Mac where the active taskbar is associated with application X (E.g. Terminal) but there are no actual terminal Windows open and the only visible window is associated with another application entirely. In my eyes, this is fucking stupid and the result of applying research without applying common sense. As for the other stuff, my ultimate feeling is this: Apple does make good hardware, this is hard to deny. It generally looks okay (If you like the brushed metal and whitesauce look) and is fairly robust. However in terms of value for money it's overpriced. Apple charge way more than they need to for their hardware the hardware they offer is often very limited. If Apple don't make a Macbook or Mac that provides the hardware features you need you're SOL unless you want to go the Hackintosh route. The irony is that if Apple dropped the prices on their stuff they'd probably sell even more and gain a much larger market share and make even more money. Laff. Claiming that it's not fair to compare Macs to custom built PCs feels like a cop-out to me but if that's how you want to strawman things, have fun. Also...please no stupid Apple Mac vs. PC propaganda videos. You're better than that I would hope. iTunes is widely regarded as being one of the worst music player applications in history. Not even die-hard Apple fanbois use it if they have a choice.

    How To: T44-100 Marathon

    How To: T44-100 Marathon

    So I ran a 2 hour session with session stats tracking progress. I ran only tier 8 premiums mostly because I had a credit booster active but also because tier 8 is a pretty good balance between damage and kills. In those two hours I managed 41k damage and 31 kills over 19 games. These are typical stats for me playing these tanks. Doing the math, that's roughly 80 hours of play time or 800 battles to do the full thing. But more importantly I made 1.8 million credits in that time. 900k an hour is pretty good for pubbing...

    Saying Hi

    Hi all, I started playing WOT a bit over a year ago (May 2015), but only found WotLabs this past Feb after winning the WGLNA fantasy league and meeting some players in person as a result. Since then I've been paying a lot more attention to how I perform in the matches I play and trying to learn from streamers like Zeven. I think I've improved a bit as a result, but I know there's room for more improvement as I still have tomato moments every now and again (last night was particular bad for those!) I've finally decided to stop lurking from the shadows and say hi. Hopefully I'll continue to improve with the help of the forums and maybe meet some people willing to toon up and show me how it's done!
