  1. Never gotten anything higher than 2 marks before as I'm a casual shitter that never plays a tank often or consistently well enough. Decided to try and get my first one. Yeah it's only a tier 5 and one of the easy ones but gotta start somewhere right? Gonna do a few more of my favorite 5's then work my way up.
  2. Yeah something in a windows update did it I suspect. Even broke my Realtek Audio Manager to the point I couldn't even get it to open. Had to find the folder and run RtkNGUI64.exe as an administrator just to be able to change that setting.
  3. I don't think too many people do replay packs anymore now that Twitch is a thing, plus replays break every 2nd week because of lack of backward compatibility.
  4. Do you use Realtek HD audio manager? If so try clicking the spanner icon in the bottom right corner and ticking the box to disable front panel jack detection. Had a similar problem that fucking did my head in for a week or more, turned out it was that simple for me.
  5. Join a clan Build a friends list of competent players. It's not rocket science. I rarely platoon because personal circumstances require me going AFK between pretty much every battle, but if I wanted to it wouldn't be hard.
  6. I know people here think it's cancer and bad for the game, but is the Type 5 worth suffering through the Type 4 for?

    Really not enjoying this tank, way too big and slow, everyone pens you easily unless they are a tomato.

    1. Tarski


      My opinion: yes, it's a significant upgrade to the Type 4. I drove and kinda enjoyed the Type 4 before the big HE cannon was introduced (and before the new MM). The games where I was matched against IS-6s made the bad games worth it. But I was really in it for the Type 5. I was not disappointed: it's a silly giant box with good gun depression. Now with the giant gun the silly package is complete. When I play it right it makes me laugh. 

      ...but due to requiring 100% premium shells it eats up credits in almost any match where you take damage.

      In my opinion yes as well. I actually quite liked the Type 4, and the Type 5 is everything the Type 4 does except better (literally). The armour is better. The gun handling is better. The reload is better. You'll still get penned from the front from heat-spamming enemies, but you can't avoid that with flat armour, and at least with the Type 5, if you can hide the shoulder, you can angle enough to entice bounces reasonably predictably. I agree with Tarski, it's a fun tank for me to play - not too much thinking and lots of giggles, particularly when you land those hilarious penetrating shots.

      Really depends, I personally think the carry potential and clutch stuff is close to zero meaning you really have to pick your fights and know beforehand how they're going to play out. 

      RNG is enough of a factor to make the gun roll anywhere from 700 to 300 seemingly out of the blue, so when you're in those tough spots where you actually need high damage HE rolls make it a lot less reliable for knowing what you can do and start thinking ahead again. 

      The 2key also destroys your chances of reliably tanking anything as every T10 that isn't an LT can pretty much go through it no matter how you angle, so baiting hits isn't reliable either. But luckily the handling and high alpha let you trade pretty well for small exposure times so there's where you outdo the heavies and how you start taking away in winning the trade game. 


      Aside from the fact that it's derpy as shit it's pretty fun to play. HE pen memes are always fun, and it's really a good tank for when you just want something to do but really can't be bothered to focus and super tryhard. 

  7. I don't think x3/5 really impacts overall winrate at all. But it can seriously impact session winrate for better or worse. ie some sessions I struggle with retarded teams, other times it works in my favor and I enjoy really nice Winrate/WN8 sessions. I'd expect the swings to be less wild the more skilled you are but for average pubbies that aren't particularly good at carrying weak teams they can be pretty savage at times. FWIW I did ok statwise this weekend, I have definitely had some seriously bad ones in the past though, like 40% winrate for the entire weekend bad.
  8. You might be thinking BigM from PANZA, he's on my friends list and hasn't played since August.
  9. Wargaming really know how to ruin an orgasm.
  10. 112 Battles 63% winrate, 2400 DPG which is down a bit from when I last posted. Rethinking my Equipment now as the most annoying thing is mediums that sit there and perma track you, although just noticed my commander has SS SIA Recon and is training camo so probably should have switched that to repairs Rammer is non negotiable for me, I prefer optics as I tend to be always moving, thinking of switching out spall liner for toolbox, it's nice shrugging off T49's and French arty, but the perma tracking is the most annoying thing in the game for this TD. Due to the complete lack of gun traverse I end up stuck there while some medium or fast firing heavy is able to retrack me half a second before I repair every time while sitting just a couple of degrees outside my gun arc. Will see how I go with new setup.
  11. I think if platooning your attention will be divided between what you are doing and what he is doing.
  12. If he's open to it then probably the best way would be to watch over his shoulder and mentor him as he plays. If he doesn't want to be told what to do, read guides etc then let him be but maybe encourage him to stick to tier 5 and below for the foreseeable future.
  13. That'd make a good april fools joke. I know most people here would like to see it implemented permanently but that's not going to happen so I'd settle for one day where they are forced to stare at a wall with a pixelized Trump face for the entire game
  14. Thanks WG for putting my referred "friends" chosen line on track, 240 battle in 4 days in the Patton, T95E2 received, only took 1070 days from time of invite :feelsgoodman:

  15. Just noticed the M48 is on track for both Asia and NA. Guess you could say I see a Patton emerging :gaytroll:
