      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


      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


      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

  2. Yup. Learning to aim and shoot, and not get shot back, is about 10% of the total skillset requirement for this game. The other 90% is learning map positioning, vision and camo mechanics, and tactics. Learning where and how to play positions on the map is one of the hardest things to learn, but once you get it, it doesnt even matter if you cant aim because you can compensate by positioning yourself to get side shots. Its why there have been several unicum players (Zapyoung is one) that play/played on literal potatoes with sub 20fps and were still able to play at purple.
  3. Fortnite

    I don't play it. I've seen plenty of gameplay of it and I have to say it looks uninteresting as hell. I don't like the third person (Im an FPS shooter person) I don't like how its all jumping around and such. that stuff is super annoying to me when im playing shooters. And Im pretty meh about the building to be honest. don't really care for it. I'll echo the rest and say Pubg is my game. I was eh on that as well until I was told they released a First person only mode. Which is the only mode I play.
  4. @TheTrojanWarrior for how long it takes, it probably depends how observant you are, and how long it takes you to remember those positions and retain the information for every map. For me I remember grasping it pretty quickly, learning where everyone always goes. Expect to make mistakes, expect to get killed because you didnt expect a tank there. The best thing about that though is then you've learned "okay, theres a TD that sets up there, ill be careful of that position in the future" Ill be honest, I could even compile a list of all the maps and mark locations that TDs are most likely to set up in for every map, I could do it for the old maps, but not the new 1.0 maps as I've played like 20 pub battles in 1.0, if that lol.
  5. Currently CW meta is pretty fucking great guys.

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

    10/10 so much tactics, so much strategy, much variety.

      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. 

      Its almost as though we've seen this kind of thing before...

    3. 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


      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.

  6. Hmm. I think what your problem is, you arent checking the team compositions properly, and aren't learning where big TDs like that habitually set up. The best advice I can give you, is to check the team compositions im the countdown, or even on the loading screen, take note of which tanks they have, and take a a guess as to where you might expect them to deploy. You also should take constant notes of where you see TDs and such set up and where they generally position themselves, not just the enemy TDs, but your own TDs. Then you can learn, for each map, where TDs habitually position themselves from both spawns, and you can figure out which positions you can use that are safe from those angles. Gradually, you'll find yourself able to loom at the team list, notice that hey, they have a Grille 15 on their team, expect them to set up in this position, so if I plan on heading to that flank, I should make sure I play in a way thats safe from that angle. It takes a lot of practice and a lot of trial and error, but you'll eventually get there. On your second point, if you find yourself losing all your health early game, you're probably being too agressive early on. Its often better to find a forward, safe position, and feel the enemy out, let a few tanks get spotted, figure out where your team is going and where their team is spotted, and minimise risk to yourself before you commit. In this way, there will be less surprises when you do try and push. You'll see that that TD was previously spotted in that position, so you need to be weary of it. Along with this, in conjunction with the previous point, you will find yourself slowly being able to see whats spotted, what hasn't been spotted, and take a guess as to where those unspotted tanks may be.
  7.  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:


      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


      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). 

    4. hazzgar


      @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) 

  8. 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 (, this forum, etc) because, after all, they don't even play their own game.

    3. Fulcrous


      tbf it could easily be the lines in the water being damaged/repaired.

    4. Assassin7


      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.

  9. Didnt think to.
    1. Errants


      I don't get it...

    2. Assassin7


      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

  10. woah theres a WT stats page? apparently im a good player in Arcade, and average in RB. also, I only really play planes. every time I play tanks it just ends in a massive rage because its so fucking stupid and unreliable. (and the tanks are so clunky to control) but I did just start getting into it the other day, did some powergrinding and finally hit my first Jet. well, Rocket. the Me 163.
  11. you can probably just set the main world of tanks folder and select the "and all subfolders and files" options when doing it.
  12. 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?????

      Not on WG's end, my ping has been fine for a while now and I play from the PH

    3. Assassin7


      it has to be on WGs end because my internet is fine to every other game and server, including NA servers. 

    4. Balthazars


      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.

  13. So this just happened in WT:

    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)

    1. SaintLaurentius


      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:

  14. its because all the maps have all the background now past the actual map border. so instead of it just fizzling out into fog and nothingness, theres actually terrain and mountains and detailing past the map border, which makes the maps feel way bigger.
  15. Armored Loot Box Warfare

    I dont think SS hated WoT or WG. he hated all the purple players for being good.
  16. Armored Loot Box Warfare

    Their first problem was hiring fucking silentstalker as a community manager. Their second problem was trying to make a game that was only a ripoff of WoT, then firing their fucking dev company for trying to actually make it different and unique.
  17. so is Vbaddict officially kill now?

    1. mistervanni


      i think the ADU problem is killing it for all the new tanks since it stopped working :( i really miss it for all the data on tanks usage...any more deep info would be awesome

  18. Glacier

    Played 2 games on it. One in foch 155, one in 140. Middle seems the place to go. The south is just one tiny thin mountain road not wide enough for more than single file, and anyone in a 268 V4 auto wins it because that tank is stupid. North is just flat ground with various rocks to play peekaboom with. No terrain to abuse. Middle has some hills and dips and some hard cover, which means its a good place for vision and map control but if you need to escape from being pushed out you're pretty fucked as its nothing but open ground on either side. The map just seems bad in general. Its too open in everywhere, except the two tiny corridors in the north and south, but I need to play some more games on it to confirm.
  19. Steppes 1.0

    I thought it was the other way around? Everyone says the maps have been flattened out. The only one Ive played so far thats had a redesign is fishermans bay (which is waayyyy more open holy shit)
  20. @Folterknechtmy has started being woken up out of sleep randomly, at like 1-2am and shining bright light in my face while im trying to sleep. it seems to be coming from the update orchestrator service. (I've had windows update disabled for about 6 months) I disabled the service, and then I went and disabled wake timers, neither have worked. any more ideas?

      The same process. I physically disabled the prosess so idk.

    3. Folterknecht


      To clarify: Did you just kill the process or did you set it to manual/disabled (incl. start up)? These are two different things ... .


      Is it running after a restart?

    4. Assassin7


      i set it to disabled. just checked it and it is re enabled. ugh. 

  21. Mods in 2018

  23. what is wrong with WG's servers.

    my ping, which is normally 230 on central, has gone to 320 about an hour ago, and is now 380.
