  2. WG seems to have done something and now my ping is sub 200 :D
    it was 230-250 depending on time for central. being back at 180 is great

  3. New "feature" of being a mod: I get these nice big banners on top of the forum that say "THERES A FORUM SOFTWARE UPDATE CLICK HERE TO UPDATE NOW" with a big button I have almost accidentally tapped on my phone twice now which according to Never would lead to many things breaking completely.

  5. why the hell did they have to change earlenberg from the cool unique map it was to just another stupid boring corridor brawl map. ugh its so boring now. 

    1. sohojacques

      Assault on the old map was was possibly my favourite map in the game. The new map highlights everything that’s  wrong with WGs current take on the game. 

    2. king_spaniel

      king_spaniel

      Because this is the new formula for every new "successful rework" according to WG: 70% of the map is open field kill zone, 10% = the most predictable positions for your low IQ teammates to camp in for the entire match.  The remaining 20% of the map is actually contestable and where any competent player is forced to go.  But because it is such a small strip of the map, it too becomes entirely predictable where you will be forced to end up.

      There can be no room for creativity, flanking, (think multiple viable options or pathways).  Everything must be forced into a straight line corridor for the droolers to be able to play in their <insert random tank(not light tanks though, we're talking about actual classes that can have an impact on the game)> to do 2 shots of dmg and then throw themselves away uselessly

  6. Okay, the official forum has finally broken me.

    I have people telling me the Churchill 7 is doing fine and doesnt need a buff, and someone else trying to tell me that the IS-7 has better gun handling than the E5.

      @Assassin7 that is why I said it's better for snaps only. I don't think it's a simple cut comparison. When you start aiming the e5 probably overtakes is7 I just find that people follow the myth of derpy is7 gun back before buffs. Also e5 gun feels better because more pen and better shell speed.

      no, day. Ranked for me starts at 12pm and goes till 5pm. I got to rank 11 at like 3.30pm.

  8. the more I play ranked the more obvious how unbalanced tier 10 is becomes.

      The problem I have is with the Type 5's. I've been having matches with one team having like four or five of these things, usually driven by some shitters and that team always wins because they simply HE everything to death. Hull down Super Conqs or 430U make no difference. They just suffer from HE spam all the same.

    3. Assassin7

      Assassin7

      I dont even have a problem with type 5s at the moment. Just heat through the turret face and try not to get hit. Shit doesnt work with super conqs and 430Us...

       

      Hell, the 268v4 isnt even a problem, not many people are playing it.

    4. mati_14

      mati_14

      That thing of who has more S. Conquer wins, it's not completely true in my experience, got 15 last friday full IS-7, and the only issue with S. Conquer is the speed, some maps like Malinovka, Redshire, Arctic Region and Live Oaks are dominated by the tanks that can take the brawl area first because of the positional advantage, and here is where 430U shines, along with 5A and 277. Still agree that SC concept is completely wrong. Why would we need an armored 215B?. In any case, I feel like all tier 10 2016/2018 should be nerfed a bit, reduce 907/430U/SC/5A/277/STRV DPM, nerf 268V4 armor even more, put IS-7 at 2200 HP, etc. It's funny to me how tanks  like 113/260/E5/STB are now utter trash because of this retarded powercreep.

  9. So, last ranked season (and the season before that, funnily enough) I was having major issues with packet loss, like, unplayable levels of packetloss. Then, when the ranked season ended, so did the packet loss issues, like, almost to the day. These issues never happened again...

    Until today, when I started playing this ranked season. And now im getting packet loss again.

    Tinfoil hat time?

      Hey man, I totally wasnt expecting a random massachusetts to appear in my port one day. I didnt even know that that contest was a thing that existed until I went looking to figure out why I was given the ship lol. 

  10. I log in to ships, find a random massachusetts in my port. be like "wtf" go to forums, apparently I won it in the Damage Dealer event that I didn't know even existed. ha.

  11. Pro ships players, tldr of how2play Yamato in current meta? 

  12. So, researched and bought the caernavon. Only 2 games but Its actually pretty good. 280 alpha with a 5.4 second reload, decent mobility, decent armour, decent gun handling. This thing got mega loved.

      I was grinding the churchill 1 because I need new meta tanks. That thing was honestly terrible. -4 dep was the worst. And I kept getting fucked by Lefhs constantly. 

    3. hazzgar

      hazzgar

      Lefhs are cancer to low tier heavies but having finally gotten my hands on an account that has one - it's meh. Unless the target is slow and imobbile the shell flies to long to hit anything that moves above 15kph.

  15. tfw you accidentally hit confirm instead of cancel when checking how much you can increase your 6th skill on your STB with free XP and spent all of it on going from 17%-38%.

      Im closest to 5A and Obj 777 when it comes out. the rest im literally below tier 5 for. so yeah. 

  16. aside from windows deciding its now going to randomly take up an extra 20-30gb of space on any given day or even hour. It just installed, by itself, with no prompting, the English UK language to my computer. and won't let me uninstall it. 

    Im thinking its soon time for a reinstall. this is rediculous. EVERY windows update feature, service, registry key, etc is disabled. and its still doing this shit

  17. Rip pref MM tanks.

    https://worldoftanks.com/en/news/general-news/preferential-premiums-perfection/

    Bad idea on this one WG. Also, note how they sort of just added it on at the end quickly to try and detract from the fact.

      Unless the T-34-3 gets 225mm pen, 270mm HEAT, 0.36 acc and 2.5s aim time, with similar or better mobility, the chances of me returning to WoT are about as likely as WG balancing this Pref MM tank change well.

      for you people from europe: might there be a legal way to get my money back instead of gold? i brought premm MM tanks for a reason. WG always shied away of changing the prem tanks because of that but now they can?

  18. omg, Windows has randomly taken 30gb of space on my SSD for something and I don't know what. windows update I think, despite the fact that is disabled in every single way possible. I had 40gb free and now I have 10GB

      Its rabdomly fluctuating around. It went up to 30gb free then back down to 20gb. I updated windows fully last night, and today its telling me there are important updates that need to be installed DESPITE windows update service being disabled and it being disabled via the registry. Ugh.

      T8 only mode is a great way to coax people to buy T8 prem tanks. If WG is smart they will keep it at T8 only.

      You don't think ahead enough. 

      1/ Implement Frontline at tier 9
      2/ Add Very good premium tank at tier 9 available for 750k free xp (like Wows which makes massive credits)

      3/ $$$

      I'm pretty sure the winter mode was a huge success as well. Shitton of credits, free crews and XP. I mean I ground out a full reroll back then, 0 battles on any mode but winter and it had two 4 skilled crews and enough free XP for two T10s lmao

       

      I've enjoyed frontline to the point where it's nice that you can play tanks as a good player without having to bother with performance. Who cares if you don't get general when you get a shitload of credits anyway? I autopilot 90% of the FL games and still have great results which is why I like it. It's something I can while watching a movie when I don't just wanna sit still, but still focus on the movie or some shit like that. 

      Now for the actual map balancing on the other hand it's actually fjords level bad :doge:

      Hey, not arguing against ARs, They're still the best overall. But they're boring after a while and I've always loved going outside the box. 

      Also I was rank 200 or so duo FPP for a while as well. Im currently still in top 1% or something IIRC.

      Why do you think its bad anyway?

    3. Fulcrous

      Fulcrous

      It's only good if you're camping a building and have all the right mods, which take time to get. Double barrel is superior at close range and significantly easier to mod. Any distance beyond 50m ARs are superior in DPS. Even then, a quick double tap and AR > Vector less than 50m.

      Vector used to be the dominant gun over ARs before the nerf. No longer the case.

      I don't know what server you were/are playing on but anything outsides of NA and EU equates to trash in pubg anyways.

    4. Assassin7

      Assassin7

      I play on NA and OCE. IIRC atm im like top 1% on OCE and top 2.5% or something on on NA (because of ping mainly)

      As for double barrel, isnt reliable enough for me and has less range even. Anyway I find its better to run a DMR with the vector than a bolt action, so you have more mid range DPS. Plus on erangal where especially late game engagement distances are more mid range it doesnt work, sure. But on mirimar where you end up fighting over ridges and hills a lot of the time its great. No one expects you to be able to just shred them. Ive won a number of games with it like that.

       

      edit: ha got it wrong way around. 0.47% on NA Duo FPP and top 1.79% OCE duo FPP

  24. FYI Wotlabs is back up

  25. the more I play this patch, the more I realised exactly what I feared would happen with this patch has happened, and WG has completely fucked every single map in some way. I haven't found a map I like more than before yet

      @leggasiini oh shit you are right they removed sand river assault which was one of the best to farm pubbies.. I have been playing this tank for like 3 years and ALL THEY DO is remove maps or gamemode from some maps... And people were defending WG because "but listen they are working on HD maps"... Lol plz this update is the worst by far, they should have kept making new map but all they did was remove map after map after map while only adding like 2.. (and one of it is fucking Paris...)

       

      And also can someone explain to my why the haven't added a second entry to the hill on mines ?? It would seriously solve the entire situation where one side get there first..

    3. Assassin7

      Assassin7

      You cant add a second entry to the hill that doesnt favour one side of the other. You'd have to add two extra entries.

    4. StormCrowReaperManyHats

      StormCrowReaperManyHats

      You could change the western entry so it could only be accessed from the north and add an entry on the eastern side and it would balance it out. Honestly I've been saying for years the biggest problem with Mines and Ensk is the need to be tier limited. 600m maps are too fucking small for tier 8+ 600m maps need to be tier 6 top and 800m maps tier 8 top. Five fucking years I've been saying it.
