    Just bumping this because this thing is so much fun. Its basically a tier 5 T49. You dart around in the shadows hunting for butts and unleash a stream of 30mm bukkake all over them, then run away. Rinse repeat. Its capable of clipping out most of its counterparts as well, which makes it a truly nasty counter scout. The best tier 5 LT on city maps. 8/8

    New Russian Tanks Coming with Update 9.22

    @zbran it's hard to say for you. It's your choice to spend real money to reach the 430 in time. Yes it's worth it to power grind the 430 II to 430 to get a free T9 (you get a free T9 not a free T10) also if you miss the 430 then you will have to go back throught the T-44 to get it (btw). But is worth it to spend free xp on a very good T9 ? You tell me. For info : -------------------------- On a side note i made myself some notes to see what crew i have and how many new crews i need for 9.22. Anybody got any comment on my selection of keeper tanks ?

    Credits for nothing and tanks for free!

    So, if you've gotten your garage up to 10, you've got several discounts waiting for you... And the Tier II-VII will all NET you credits on use (buying tank for 60-100% off, then selling back immediately for 50% of full price). So, what's a credit-grubbing player to do? Consult the following guide, where I'll spend way to much time on figuring out how to net ~1 million credits (guessing) for free. Tier II - H35 - 2.1k Runners up at 1.5k - Strv m/38, VAE Type B, Chi-Ni, LT vz. 35, FCM 36, Loyd GC (after On-Track), UC 2-pdr Tier III - SU-26 - 26.5k Runners up would be ANY of the Tier III arty, though as they are all 22.5-26.5k. Non-cancer would be: Type 91 @ 23.25k or the Pz 1 C @ 22.9k Tier IV - B1 - 92.5k Runner up is the D.W. 2 @ 85k Tier V - O-I Exp. - 222.5k Runners up of T1 Heavy @ 217.5k, Type T-34 @ 215k, and AT-2 @ 212.5k Tier VI - M4A3E2 "Jumbo" - 195k purchase, 487.5k sale, 292.5k net Runners up of Churchill GC @ 289.5k, M18 Hellcat @ 285k net Tier VII - O-Ni - 596k purchase, 745k sale, 149k net Runners up T29, US Lights, M12, IS, S-51, AT 7, Churchill BP, Crusader SP, Lorr. 155 50, T-34/100, Chi-Ri, non-LT CN tanks, Swedes - all are net of 140K or more So, for a total cost of 791k, you'll get back 1.595m, or a net profit of 804k... Wow. Not that great, but making money. But, we're already in the rabbit hole, so let's look at the higher tiers, and try to get the biggest savings (and see how much of our profit we lost)! Tier VIII - FV207 - 1.365m purchase/sale, net 0 Runners up - SU-14-2 @ 1.36m and M40/M43 @ 1.35m Tier IX - 212A and Type 4 Heavy - 2.22m purchase, 1.85 sale, 37k loss net Runners up - Foch @ 2.202m, Object 704 @ 2.196m, M103 @ 2.184m; Strv 103-0, Type 61, Conqueror, G.W. Tiger, T54E1 @ 2.16m Tier X - They're all 6.1m, so 4.27m cost regardless. Now, the secondary reason I'm doing this... help figure out where I'm spending my Tier VIII-X discounts. ^_^ Spoilered, 'cause I don't think most care. Thanks for your time, hope this helps anyone else out who's looking to make some free credits... or save some.

    Need new headset - halp?

    Nurki take a look at these reviews: https://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/?category=Headphones&manufacturer=&pp=25&order=date They include soundsamples for the microphon similar to what I did in my mini-review of that USB thingy I did on techpowerup and the GSP300 sounds really good.

    Operation: Grind like mad for the Obj 430 before the patch is a go. Once I get past the A-44 it should be pretty easy... I hope.

    Game crashes

    My experience is in programming, not systems (operating systems, networking, etc), so I doubt I can be much help. WoT will crash on me if I play a lot of games (50?) without restarting the game client. Sometimes I'll notice a warning in the notification centre along the lines of 'low memory'. If I don't restart the game client it will just crash, usually with 2-3 games. It's like there's a small memory leak and once it goes over a certain limit... Boom. I doubt that's your issue though, unless a patch has unsettled something. Checking all your drivers are up to date may help.

    Today, I learned that (with a high roll for pen) this is possible: super max mega HD Gfycat version: https://gfycat.com/DenseForkedBrahmanbull 833 damage and 5 crits (track, ammo rack, turret, commander, and gunner, I believe) GG was fun Also, while i'm here, I picked up a co-commander and her sibling over the new year:

    New Russian Tanks Coming with Update 9.22

    Hmm, so no rush to grind Xp on the 430 II or t10 for the new 10s it appears. Did the eu post imply those 10s may still be coming in this patch? Edit: by the sounds they are both slated for 'down the road'. Oh well, time to grind the IS instead.

    Object 416: How to play?

    I feel like this was pretty clearly laid out. I feel like maybe it's worthy of moving to the newbie section and pinning. Watcha think @Private_Miros? Thanks to the rest of you all for expressing the purpose and norms of wotlabs so clearly. It's not internet normal, but like Miros said it's useful and closer to real life. Reddit is probably the right place for him though, if he wants to ask repetitive questions with scattershot answers of dubious quality and further flood the searchable internet with dreck. Of note: this forum was modeled on the WoW Elitist Jerks forum. Slightly less strict, but same basic intent.

    Object 416: How to play?

    I'll translate, since I am a native speaker of English: "I cannot be bothered to read the rules/guidelines, much less follow them, and when I get called out, instead of apologizing and trying to contribute in a meaningful way, I'll piss on the forum instead and pretend I was always too good for this place." You're welcome. While we're at it, I'll add that, despite my being demonstrably a pretty average-to-crappy player, this forum has been a key part of my becoming a much, much less crappy player than when I first got here. A near-demigod like @CraBeatOff has even taken time to toon with me and help me become a better player, and he hasn't bitched about my drag on his win rate, etc. That's a consistent behavioral quality across many of the better posters and players here - not only a willingness, but a sincere desire to help others get better at the game and enjoy it more. If you can't see that, then you simply haven't put in the effort to engage them. If you can find that elsewhere in greater supply, then godspeed, but I'd doubt your chances.

    This will be a little different to the usual run of posts here. Serene Coast, game is already in the mop-up and our Ru 251 is capping for LT-8. Twatbag in the Numberwang-5A decides he doesn't like cappers, TKs him and instantly turns blue. Now, it's gone 5am here and I'm a couple of whiskies in and I decide I'm not having any of that, so I trundle up behind him and let him feel the full force of a 152mm high explosive enema. I don't know why, but his wording is fucking slaying me.

    It's ok I found a better forum which answered my question. I understand the culture you have here and that your numbers are dwindling. Thanks.
