    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.

    I was once told that the Type 5 is better than the Type 4 tier for tier. If that has ever been true, I don't think it is now. While tier 10s are mind-numbingly strong, so are the new tier 8s in their own tier. The strength of new tier 8s is basically measured on how well they fight 10s, and many of them while not being a credible threat are still massive nuisances even for semi-armoured 10s. OTOH tier 7s are more or less in the exact same state as they were 3 years ago, while tier 9 meds/heavies/TDs that can shrug off tier 7 gold are dime a dozen

    Elimination: Tier 9 - 2018

    Ok, T-54 won. Every other tank is dead. This forum is dead since voting and discussion is pointless and someone's single opinion is worth more rest of users.

    The competitive playerbase died to a combination of CW fuckups, dropped tournament support, overarching corridor map design, new line power creep, pervasiveness of artillery, and massive module overhauls at every level that disconnected nearly every tank from its past performance. XVM is not what killed the competitive playerbase. If anything, the kind of harassment you or anyone else perceives is being received from XVM is a consequence of the kinds of players that are left after all of the changes above washed out those disgruntled enough by the game's direction over the past two to three years to bail, and of those changes themselves. Removing XVM will not restore any kind of competitive atmosphere. nor will any whinging about how other players are using it, as you should know well enough that those are not the caliber of player to ever feel shame for their manner of play, and it will do nothing to resolve the current mechanics and history of changes that has eviscerated the top end community and narrative. If you believe XVM is the issue to take with the game right now, you have completely lost sight of the problems and accepted a far more mediocre vision of the game whose competitive community, if it did exist, would be completely irrelevant.

    The best part is spamming HE like that is tactically useless because you would have to load up on so much HE you wouldn't have enough ammo to play like a non-mouth breather. Which is WoT design philosophy in a nutshell: break it down to as close to paper, rock, scissors as possible.

    Tier 10 meta is pretty horrible at the moment, lots of over armoured tanks, lots of prem spam, lots of arty, lots of camping TDs all clustered on maps where you can't really utilise much skill. Plus added to that lots of frustrated collapses that lead to quick one sided games. The hull down/over armoured/HE meta at tier 10 I feel is even more RNG focused than the general game, you can play well and get sh*t on by a 4005 or arty taking huge chunks or your health. Plus playing anything that isn't basically a 430U, 5A, Super Conq, means you are generally too team/map dependent to be useful and carry. The games I feel I make big contributions on are ones on amps with a bit of leg room to re-position on and where you can make angles on the enemy, but on the maps where you forced in close range frontal brawls much of that comes down to luck, as everyone is spamming HE or premium ammo at thick armour, and you just have to hope your pubbies trade better.

    But why are you sitting there? Why did u not go dark? Why did you push a flank knowing you were walking into a crossfire of tds and arty and knowing that north was getting hammered Ok arty is trash but the best option was for you to camp, stay alive and go dark.

    Low tier arty to my mind became a huge issue after the arty 're-balance' because they saw substantial buffs to their reloads. It is absolute cancer playing a lightly armoured heavy (e.g. a Tiger) in a match that has two or three of the fast-firing arties. If all three of them decide to focus on you, they can permanently stun/track you and will very quickly whittle your health away. It's also cancer in a lightly armoured medium or TD because these suckers fire so fast and only need 2-3 direct hits to kill you outright they can delete you extremely quickly if you're in a bad spot or if they get lucky.

    Tbh these days I only play pref 8s in toons cause being top tier in 3 5 7 is just no fun when half the games are stupid 7 minute yolofests, or when you try to actually play the game get focused down by at least two M44/AMX 13s. I've literally had multiple games in my 111 where I had to take and hold hulldown positions to avoid losing map control (low tier tards were camping as usual) and got full HPed from 3 minutes of arty focus. Same happens when I'm top dog in my IS-3 or Chrysler. The only thing that's worse is multiple M53/55s but those don't leave you permastunned like the M44 does. PS I used to rage TK arty about once every 50 games, now it's more like once in 15. Rip no battle buddy feels bad PPS when your tank has a long gun with good gun elevation, and your friendly arty has high (>700) alfa, you can still block their fire with your barrel and it will count as them being 'Lost in Battle'. They will even have to pay you creds for repairs.

    Repairing a track is like seconds and you had 3 fast firing arty hit you. The lorraines are like low 20 seconds, the m44 is like low teens, and that jackson was plugging in all the gaps the arty might have had. If you had went low road the lorraine at the beach would have had a harder time hitting you and the jackson wouldn't have been able to track you either.

    it encourages extremely cancerous game play. And as Fulcrous stated, making the good players quit because of this. getting insane Arty focus because your a good player? getting yolo'd because your a good player? 99% of it is done/caused by xvm because new and shit players alike are lead to believe that doing these things with killing the best players on the enemy team in mind will give them a better chance of winning (pro tip: it doesn't). and not even just the focus of blues and purples, other forms of toxic game play such as people drowning or purposely getting themselves killed at the start of a match because "xvm says i only have a 30% chance of winning" "xvm shows that MM is rigged" ect. ect. dont believe me? both players sent me PM's along the lines of "get fucked stat padder" after game despite the fact that they both threw away their tanks at the start and **Lost** the match.

    Polish tanks wn8

    You see the problem is that due to powercreep WN8 has become an inaccurate tool to measure ones skill in the game since it is nowadays a lot easier to achieve a high average WN8-level which doesn't actually reflect the true skill of the player. Whereas 4 years ago 1500 wn8 would have been considered above average it would today be considered bad/below average by most high-end players. To remedy this and keep the rating viable as a way for top-clans to quickly measure the skill level of new recruits it was decided that new tanks/tank lines, including the Polish and Italian line, would be completly excluded from the WN8-rating altogether up until the point where there average global WN8-rating of all players would drop back down to the average rating of 4 years ago. What this effectivly means is that these tanks are counted as "0-WN8"- tanks until that point so playing them would lower the WN8-rating across all players as they are played. I hope I could clear up any confusions! -Fabunil, purple poaster/representative of the wotlabs WN8-commitee

    CV rework revealed

    Tbh, Damage over Time as a whole needs to be reworked. I would rather like to see a system where a fire or flooding deals a set number of hitpoints in damage per tick, rather than a percentage of the total HP pool. That would make single fires more serious for DD's (which rarely get double-lit anyway), and less serious for BB's. As a tradeoff, a large ship like a BB should have many more possible fire locations, so a single, double or even triple fire would not be that serious, but ten fires burning on the deck of your Kurfurst would be a problem. That could work with flooding too. A single hole from a torpedo would be much more serious on a DD than a BB, but the BB has the potential to receive many more holes.
