    Yeah there were some exceptions to what I said- before they revamped the map it was absolute garbage, but as a heavy/med player I kinda enjoyed it afterwards, the corridors were pretty bad but it didn't feel as stagnant as some of the maps now- although I played it before super heavies became meta so that definitely helps. The map I really miss is Pearl River though, after I wrote the comment I thought about all of the fun pub games I had on that map- I mean it had everything. It was open on some parts, there were places to scout, places to flank, and huge places to make outplays as a heavy tank. It was even decent for arty/TDs as both spawns had an area to sit in the back of the map (although just saying that still confirms my belief that arties and high-tier TDs are still cancer to the game) and be able to hold off flanks/pushes. It really was a good map, and it was enjoyable to look at, and that's all before the HD maps came out- I can't even imagine the map now if it were in HD, it'd be beautiful as hell.

    This is the map with the shitty town on one side and the clusterfuck of two buildings that everyone huddles around on the other, right? I agree after playing it once or twice at tier 9/10 it is absolutely garbage. There's an area on that map that's designed specifically for most types of tanks, and yet they're all useless at the same time. Want to cross the river and go to the hill terrain as a med? Get fucked, because the people at the clusterfuck have shots at most of the area and arty will obliterate you. Want to go to the small town lined across the map? Get fucked again, because there's an immense amount of crossfires to keep you from actually pushing up in it- no heavy tank from what I've seen bothers touching it, and the one time I did I was boned immediately after moving up half-way through the town. Want to go mid? Stupid fucking idea, as there's a small ridge that doesn't protect anything that isn't a LT T100 because it's so small, and again you'll get boned from the dipshits in TDs/arty that refuse to move more than two grid-squares after the entire 15 minutes. It's a good map for TDs/Arty, and that's how you immediately can conclude that it's an awful fucking addition to the map pool. I miss Kharkov (Was such a good map imo, and it feels like Glacier is a completely shittier version of it), I miss Dragon Ridge, I miss Hidden Village, I miss Northwest, I miss Pearl River, I miss Port, Sacred Valley, South Cost, and Stalindgrad along with Winter storm. Hell, Severogorsk was a good map at times, too. A lot of the removed maps offered something for every class of tank, while not being too corridor-like (obvious exceptions for some, and yet they still had a way of playing around the corridors); and yet they all offered a good amount of arty cover (par Hidden Village) and a way to decrease the line-of-sight from Chai-sniping TDs. I never once played these maps and said to myself "what the fuck is the point of this, and why did the map creators go full-retard when making this map" like I do when I play shitty maps like Glacier and Studzianki. Then again, it's WG, and they are a prime example of how badly a developing company can fuck up a game that had a chance to be one of the biggest and best, so it doesn't surprise me anymore.

      I woulda put it at like $200 USD myself, until they sold it on SEA server...

      might be still worth similar on NA but not on sea

    SEA CW is ded

    What's interesting is that WoT is still one of the most played games (although it's obviously on the EU/RU server). Here's an interesting stat that I found the other day: https://www.statista.com/statistics/506923/esports-games-number-players-global/ WoT was actually played more last year than CSGO, which is actually a huge surprise there- I'm not sure where they get their numbers from as it comes off as almost unbelievable, but if it's true it shows that the game after all the years of fuck ups STILL has a chance of coming back if the company pulled a full 180 and started doing things correctly, and that means finding a way to boost the amount of players who play in NA/SEA (in which they tried that at one point by sponsoring bigger streamers for a day or two (like DrDisrespect) but it had 0 effect in reality). But we all know that's never going to happen, so gg. EDIT: I cannot read as the website seems to show who's actually signed up/bought the game, which would explain why it's over other games seeing as WoT is free and all, but 12.3 million players is still immense.

    I miss CW, it was still fun fighting top clans even after 2.0 but I do regret not being good enough at the time to participate in the huge old wars that happened in Europe/early North America. Honestly though, can anyone else name a game that's been run into the ground harder than WoT? And no, WoW and AW do not count.

    The fact that fabunil was able to ride that for more than a single post deserves some kind of award.

    Elimination: Tier 9 - 2018

    Would definitely disagree with the 340 pen. HEAT claim. You do not need that much pen to be able to bully scrubs in corridors, and there's not many heavies with that much HEAT pen to begin with, even at tier 10- that's one thing I remember, and if there's anything I know and can discuss about this game still, it's brawling. Not only that, but something you have to realize with heavy play/carrying is that you don't necessarily need mobility to carry, just smart positioning. I could play the Maus 100 times and lose only 5-6 games max. because I was simply too slow to do something. Same goes with the Type 4/5 or the old VK B (before the stupid nerf); Also, if anyone is HE'ing your sides while you're in a super heavy and you're losing brawls (even as the old VK which had poor side armor) and you're not facing a Type 4/5 or TD with a high caliber gun, you're angling terribly.

Very interesting, and I won't continue contributing to the list seeing as I'm outdated.

    Elimination: Tier 9 - 2018

    Damn, I’m actually sad the VK B had to get nerfed. Tank truly was good after the initial buffs, but I never thought of it as over powered or even close to deserving of a nerf. Now the braindead Jap heavies? Yes. That’s something that needs a nerf.

    Elimination: Tier 9 - 2018

    Even before this list gets finished it's already clear how the meta has shifted even for tier 9. Heavies seem to take priority over meds but at the same time some heavies that I feel dominated meta last time I actually bothered playing more than 10 games a month (that isn't in a shitty tier 6/7) aren't favored. Regardless, I'll give my input but I'm probably outdated here.

Tall(and stupid tumor), mediocre gun handling, made of paper and yet it has mediocre mobility, and honestly- just fuck this line in general - only redeeming quality was STB. WZ-111G FT: 14Emil II: 8AMX 50 120: 8 M103: 5 If I really am outdated in what I said, the next to do their list can void my votes. I don't feel like the tanks have changed, but I like these threads and I'm too lazy to get on WoT and actually check to see where I'm at with these tanks.
  10. I did that, and sadly I do have to remove every screw from the side/bottom of that board. It refuses to let me take it off without them all unscrewed, and all but 2 were able to be unscrewed. I haven't had the time the past week to mess with it, but hopefully within a day or two I can try again. Also yeah I love EVGA and I wouldn't mind another card from them. I had a 970 before I won the 980Ti and the 970 still has its warranty even though I sold it to my friend who already has sold it to someone else. If only WG gave me a warranty for this card.
  11. Update: So for right now I have a decent temporary fix, but I'm definitely going to try getting into that GPU again one more time before I say screw it (get it?) and buy another card. Keeping my room ice-cold with MSI Afterburner on keeps idling temps at a stable 50 c and at a max of 60-65 c in-game (so hey, no throttling but it's not the fix I want and keeping my room this cold blows). When it comes to the screws for the GPU- there's no way to get a pair of pliers to grip them, as the one near the DVI is level with the metal it's screwed into and the one directly on the board is so tight to the board that I don't even have a millimeter of screw to grab onto. I'll try getting a flathead and messing with the screw with that (I tried the rubberband trick the other day but I had no success with it). I'll update this thread again for anyone interested after I've tried getting the card open again. Picture was an hour or two outdated- the screw directly no the board is almost entirely stripped, but I'll keep at it. Good advice and I'll definitely look into it. Even if I get the board open and fixed I'll most likely still sell it/give it to a friend, so I'll keep this in mind.
  12. https://imgur.com/gallery/nvfVr0r hopefully that works. There’s actually two screws that are stripped, the main small one in the picture and another near the DVI slot. I’ve contacted EVGA about a possible fix but I doubt it will happen, and I tried for an hour to get it out and it’s simply fucked at this point (picture is before I spent an hour trying to get it out and fucked it entirely). Out of utter frustration, I’m just going to buy a new card and give this one to a friend. Any one have a card they’d recommend? Was thinking a 1080 8GB Strix GPU by ASUS boosted to 1835 MHz.
  13. It’s the one I got from the Vegas Finals so I don’t think it was touched but it’s possible. I stripped the screw myself like a dickhead, but in all fairness, it is quite literally the only screw that wouldn’t come out and now I’m pretty boned. $600 screw ftw?
  14. Well as much as I would love to try out this solution, unless someone has a way for me to unscrew this stripped dot-sized screw I’m kinda fucked. EDIT: not sure if the picture is showing because I’m on mobile but basically one of the screws in the board has been completely stripped and I have no way of actually taking it out and changing the paste
  15. I haven't really used CPU Z that much, but I believe that's just the way it tracks it. If not that would be interesting, but from the website it seems like it just records it as a single channel. As for the seating they are seated in the 1/3 slot. Also trust me I value the help and nothing is stupid here, this stuff furthers my knowledge on PCs which in itself makes this pain in the ass worth it. Now I honestly didn't know I could do this. How would I go about actually doing something like this? This is the benchmark on Ultra for Heaven with both monitors, Discord, Spotify (nothing playing but I doubt it makes a difference), and Steam running. The results without the secondary monitor hardly make a difference, with the score being a little higher at 3919 but with the Min. and Max. FPS both being 1-2 FPS lower. At this point my mind is heading towards the GPU being the problem here. My idle temps without MSi Afterburner's custom fan speeds are terrible being around 70-75 degrees Celsius and 80-85 when I'm in a game, which shows why I would be dropping. With the modified fan speeds it idles at 50-55 and maxes out at 70-75 in-game. I'm going to heavy-dust the GPU later tonight and see if anything changes, but right now I'm almost positive it's the GPU causing the problems, which is definitely frustrating. EDIT: Also the benchmark says that the GPU has only 4GB of memory (unless I'm reading that incorrectly?) which is lower than what it reads in CPU Z. At this point I am confuse.
