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

  2. 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.

      T32 is bad because of its gun even 250 apcr pen is terrible for that anemic alpha and the dpm is shit tier.

      The Car is the  meta tank as @CarbonWard predicted a while back.

      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.

      i was trying the BDR Mordian and the KV-2 Ragnarok the other day with my friend's shitter account.

      mfw 3 fast firing clickers is absolute nightmare

  5. 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. 

  6. 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

  7. 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?

  8. 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.

      Ah yes, welcome to my world. Want some cookies with your tears as the little shit inevitably breaks down and you have to reinstal it?

    It only took them 5 years and like 5+ tries of new modes lol

      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/ $$$

      Kolni

      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

  14. FYI Wotlabs is back up

  15. 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.

      I'm not minding it, but usually I tend to get it in low tiers and when I'm driving something that can go middle. Had very few that were complete camp-fests (at least while I was still alive). It's terrible with 3 arty though.

      Fjords is by far the worst map in the game now. Seems impossible to win with the north-west spawn unless the other team is completely idiotic (and even then...)

    3. Assassin7

      Assassin7

      I am taking the mid. It seems to be more biased to the north side so far though. its definitely better than paris, but I've only played fjords once in pub matches (and got the biased spawn which was ridiculous) but it just seems really hard to push anywhere because TDs just have overwatch without having to even leave their base

    4. nabucodonsor

      nabucodonsor

      That's why  you should support north since base camping tds dont cover it and if you win it, you can put the enemy base in a crossfire. South with all those bushes and one corridor is a nightmare but if you manage to push it you have a big advantage altough i do not recommend going there

  17. Currently CW meta is pretty fucking great guys.

    whoever has the most 268v4s auto wins, or at least is at a massive advantage.

      It will get nerfed soon. WG wanted everyone  to spend all their freexp on it, so when they introduce the italian tanks people have no free xp left to use. They will say it was a mistake and they will nerf it with the italian patch.

      MatzerMike

      Do you think ver. 4 it's still worth grinding considering the future nerf? I'm at the tier VII now and it will be on top of the tree next month on EU. But man.. You need to unlock a lot of guns at tier VIII and IX to get to X... Was it the same before the ver 4 was introduced, or they just did it to make players to throw more money at the OP tank?

    4. Assassin7

      Assassin7

      I think it was similar before. And if you are in a competitive clan and play CW, then yes. 100% grind it out. It is the entire CW meta now.

      If you're just playing pubs, eh unless you want to go roflstomp some pubtards for a few months before it hopefully gets nerfed to the ground then its not needed.

  18.  never expected that owning a fast looking car would turn other drivers into idiots around it. I watched some morons last night in a legacy nearly earn themselves a darwin award trying to "race" me, and then overtaking me on a stupidly short straight, before taking a blind corner on the wrong side of the damn road way too fast.

      I haven't had an issue with the cops yet. but I feel like that with a car like this:

      JKZTw5B.jpg

      even though its *mostly* factory (and sounds factory) and is completely legal, I probably will get some cops wanting to check on it at some point. Though I also have a clean record and am a safe driver. 

    3. simba90

      simba90

      In my experience with NZ cops. If you don't act/drive like a complete twat and don't have any skeptically legal mods done to your car. you are pretty much invisible to them until you go through a static check site (BAC/Rego check sort of thing).

      @Assassin7 the thing is - it's not necessary as it wasn't for mine. Doing anything that makes you confident and look competent is good. Ffs Balet Dancers get tons of girls and that's hardly a conventionally manly job/hobby (it helps that they are ripped though) 

  19. Sigh. Attempting to make a thread on the official forums discussing ping is impossible for me. All that ever happens is one or multiple mouth breathers turn up screaming "Its nothing to do with WG its all your problem because you're on NA and playing from new zealand so its your problem because you chose to not switch to ASIA!"

     

    Meanwhile other people from fucking NA itself are agreeing with me and saying "oh yeah I have these issues as well"  BUT WE GOTTA IGNORE THAT FACT AND FOCUS ON THE FACT THAT FAR AWAY = BAD = ALL YOUR PROBLEM HURR DURR

      I only stop by the official forums for a laugh at whatever nonsense conspiracy theories nimwit pubbies are parroting.  Nonstop pure radiation dosages of average-low IQ individuals, encouraged by WG.

      Every genuinely reliable source of information on this game has been something non WG-affiliated (tanks.gg, this forum, etc) because, after all, they don't even play their own game.

      It could be, thats one of my primary theories.

      Today its back down to a much more manageable 230, so idk. 

      I wasn't actually blaming WG in the OP, dunno why he got that impression. My goal with that thread was seeing if anyone else was having the issue, and if there were any ways to fix it.

      I was behind the wall he shot at. He shot at and killed me through the wall, with no reason or realistic knowledge that I was there, as he was accross the road and didnt see me cross behind that wall. And then, he barely went around the corner to even see, shot me directly through the wall, one hit kille me, and turned back to run out the door. 

       

      Tldr most obvious hacker I've ever seen

  20. why the fuck is my ping fucking 400?

    the last few patches my ping has just gone up for no reason. no difference on my end. but it went from 200 when the central server went live, up to 230, then 250, then 280, now fucking 300, and then today its 430 ffs. no packet loss or anything. just "this is the connection speed" 430?????

      Hmm, I'm still getting fairly consistent ping from Melbourne in the 220-230 range. Bad days it goes up to 280ish but just played and was getting the standard 220.

  21. So this just happened in WT:https://streamable.com/jyzio

    4 head ons in 15 seconds. and I won 3 of them. (I got credited for both the 190 and the spit but they didn't show up on the replay)

      How's the ingame balance compared to what it was the last time I played(2 years ago) in WT planes? Back then Allied planes were superior to germans in high tier props and especially in jets. Like Komet/ME 262 vs. Sabre/MIG-15. :MingLee:
