  1. Guess when Im playing... :-/ At least 2 minute queue times are better than 7 minute queue times i guess.
  2. My issue is queue times. Even with the server merge, queue times are still quite long, especially for platoons. That needs to be remedied IMO. The second issue, is it needs to balance the number of heavies/meds. Giving one team heavies and one team meds never makes a fair game. It should at least even the team comps out so both teams are equal in classes. Oh also they really need to make it so that arty is equal again. One team getting arty and the other team not is dumb.
  3. The TLDR of tanks balance currently is that if they rolled the game back a year to when you quit it would be a much better balanced game. Per WOWS: BBs are basically the pushing force of the team. If you play a BB you HAVE to be aggressive, because you have all the health, and all the armour. Dont look at those huge range numbers and think you can just snipe with them. Thats how you lose. Also, make sure you stay front on. Dont drive out broadside to enemy ships, thats how you get citadeled. A lot. Also, up to tier 5, yeah BBs all have terrible accuracy and dispersion. Stops them just deleting everything that they shoot, but it can be frustrating. You get more accurate the higher up the tiers you go.
  4. mfw hit by arty for over 1K 2 games in a row

  5. I just watched a full health IS-4 bounce off a 200hp type 4 heavy, and then drown himself presumably out of protest.

      well, according to WG, the entire game needs to be rebalanced to assist dumb fucks like him (per every major change that has occurred - to accommodate the shitter population).  All he needs to do is start another nonsensical bullshit rant on the official forums which will rally the troops

  6. Geez, play 4 games at 5.5K combined, mark goes up 1%. Have 1 2K game and it goes down nearly as much. :-/

      first game tonight was pilsen where they out mediumed us and our heavies just completely folded, 1600 damage yaaay 

    3. Gr1nch_1


      Im gonna get out on a limb and guess you overextended without/despite enough intel

      And im only saying that because that was my main problem i had to fix to become consistant

    4. Assassin7


      nope, I played passive. our heavies literally just folded too fast for me to actually do any damage. 

      third game was live oaks and their team was full of meds and half of our meds decided to go town. I didn't even over extend and I was pinned the second the game started, 700 combined.

      queue 2% drop I assume, haven't looked

      edit: started playing Eurobeat, everything is guuchi now


      edit2: got pilsen again, they out med and out heavied us. I did 800 combined. niiiiiiiiice

  7. one of the reasons I don't bother 3 marking shit:  -2,222,077 cr

    1. mati_14


      you are the problem then cuz the most expensive mark i've done, is the T55A and i lost like 1M at most? you don't need to gold spam with every single tank in order to mark it

    2. SaintLaurentius


      But it sure helps to do it?


      @Assassin7 At least your reason isnt as dumb as QBs   :QBSeal:

    3. Assassin7


      Im marking the STB, which runs food. And the superheavy spam is fucking real atm. I keep having to fight multiple Mauses/Type 5s/JPEs and shit. Marking my E5 and T-54 werent this expensive. But I marked them before the retarded Maus/Type 5 buffs.

  8. so apparently people are getting perma banned with no strikes left right and center, for things said in chat. A la johnmarada

      Johnmadara? Nazis?

      What's the difference?

      @Android25 you have a clear anti left bias in your post and you basically asume any extremism = left (though that's evident by your previous post where you layed all the blame on one side of the political divide). Nazi party was anti bourgeois but not big business. Also what they did matters more than what they preached. Using your logic Trump is a leftist since he preached anti establishment stuff and attacked Hilary for being in the pocket of Wall Street. The thing is NSDAP was against big business only because they were not in control of it. It exactly mirrors the modern day movements in US, UK and Europe where frustrated people vote for antiestablishment populists who offer drastic change and revenge on the establishment that wants to keep the status quo despite there being a recent huge recession (especially in Germany). I'm far from Calling Trump or UKIP a Nazi but they chanelled similar rethoric and played on the same feelings to get support for their cause. Funny thing is I don't blame the right for it. The problem is the weakness of the left. FDR understood this with the new deal. He warned his big business friends it's better for them to find a compromise with the people fast than wait and deal with a much worse situation. This is why I never understood the anti left sentiment. You may not agree with their policy but the left is a very important stabilizing factor in Politics. Otherwise populism takes root. 


      To get on topic though - I see no problem with the bans. I rage in chat all the time. I've been chat banned maybe for 1 day in 5 years. Just don't call people jews and faggots. Instead ask them if they parents got a tax break on the account of their intelectual disability and you are fine. 

  9. Nah, i literally didn't care enough about it to want to spend gold. It shows in my stats, I dropped from 3100 to 2600 recent AND lost my purple overall lol.
  10. Which is why I completed the foch grind without spending a single piece of gold, not even on crew retraining.
  11. Ok they need to stop replacing tier 10s, and then making them special vehicles, before I start asking for my tier 10 4202 back... Like theres no point removing it if its just gonna stay in the game.


    first ever chat ban in 6 years of playing this game. and its this.

      I did submit one and got a canned response. "You said bad word, you are banned"

    3. HowitzerBlitzer


      How long is the ban, anyways?

    4. Assassin7


      It was a day, it was over by the time I started playing yesterday. I didn't even play pubs during the time of the ban, only strongholds for credits where it didnt matter so it didnt effect me at all.

  13. I havent looked at the ranked changes, but based on my current schedule im unlikely to be able to play, which sucks because I want that second equipment piece on my STB lol. As for how fun it is, i found the games themselves to be really fun. It was really competitive and really immersive. What wasn't fun is what everyone was playing for, and the rage when someone lost. But ill tell you what, not having retards refusing to leave spawn and actually having everyone TRY to win rather than "playing for fun" made the realistic quality of the games much better compared to pubs (if you looked at them and ignored the rankings)
  14. Ill be honest, ranked seems to be designed from the beginning to be a competitive mode for high level play. Sure they let average players in, but to me it seems designed with the intention at least, of rewarding skill. I cant argue with the good get further ahead. But there needs to be a carrot to dangle for people to actually play the mode. But rest assured, its just as cancer for good players as it is for bad.
  15. I didnt actually know or understand just how bad this will be until reading this thread. Stay safe guys
  16. Is it just me, or does anyone else currently feel that tier 9 is the best, most balanced, and tier with the biggest variety in the game atm?

    2. WhatTheSkara


      Nobody grinds it because the tanks before are meh at best, apart from type 61 90mm machine gun memes..

      Also everyone is scared of the infamous bloom..

    3. Assassin7


      The infamous bloom is so overstated its not even funny.  

    4. ThomChen114


      I can recall grinding the Type 61 and how much more reliable the 90mm was to the 105mm, plus the ridiculously small ammo capacity of the 105mm remains a thing.

      STB-1 was my 2nd ever tier 10 tank after CAX, so if they hurt her.....

  17. "T-54 turret got buffed" >T34 pens my turret face with AP. 2 minutes later VK 1001P pens Platoon mates T-54 turret face with AP

      It's still 260 effective. I mean... 248 pen is a 40% chance to pen on 260 effective...

      It's not like it was 190 pen.

    3. Zepherex


      @Fulcrous imagine having to discuss trash like this on slack everyday

    4. Assassin7


      Oh the T34 is 248? Wtf I thought it was 224, why do i think that...

      Ill give you that, but the VK is only 220 and thats basically a max roll to pen that, and 2 high pen rolls on low super low chance shots in a row ffs. 

  18. woah wait what is that called and what is it about?
  19. That was exactly my reasoning. Until i learned the D54 has less gun depression. Depression is everything. D10 it is. The gun handling is workable with vents+bia. And at least i now have even more DPM i guess.
  20. wait the D-54 has less gun depression? edit: it does what the actual fuck WG literally go fuck yourselves for this change. you're not making the D-54 more viable you're just nerfing the D10 for no fucking reason die in a fire edit2: fucking fine, switched optics for vents since thats how you want me to play the damn tank WG. asscancer gun handling is now less asscancer and at least its nearly as accurate now as it was, and at least I get even more DPM out of it.
  21. wtf, 9.20 release auto demounted my iVstab from my STB?

    1. TAdoo87


      Yep, it was in the patch notes. I think they did it because from 9.20 you can't swap the iequipments between tanks anymore. I am not sure.

    2. ZXrage


      You can only demount improved equips with bonds, so they demounted it for you

    3. Assassin7


      Oh really? Interesting.


      I should probably go read the patch notes. Im glad I noticed it wasnt there before i played a game in my STB lol

  22. Finish long ass lab report with 20 minutes to go before the deadline.

    go to submit it online. submissions going through turnitin. oh fucking god.

    (for those who don't know, turnitin is the single most useless pile of shit marking software known to man which is supposed to compare your work and see how much you've plagarised, and then goes and flags everything for plagarism anyway, you could literally write an entire paper by yourself without reading anything from any book or website ever and turnitin would say you've plagerised 50% of it)

      You self plagiarize because when you submit work, it's now the property of the university.

    3. CenturionofRome72


      We used to use a program like that (i think it might be turnitin) for coding projects which was really dumb since all the students are using the same tools to work to the same end goal.

    4. Archaic_One


      For a lab report? lol FFS

  23. Oh they did do that? My bad thought that was next patch.
  24. Good: NA central gives me 50 less ping than last patch. Some boosts were (presumably) removed. Can get bonds from tier 10 games now. meh: Foch 155 changed with Foch B. M46 buff, AMX 30 buff. M48 patton buff, other buffs with tanks i don't care about. Grand battles. The bad: T-54 nerf because WG are literally retarded. Maus wasnt nerfed. type 4/5 werent nerfed enough for anything to even matter. Also, remember the old days when the mantra was "no patch is complete without a T30 nerf"? Yeah well, the current mantra seems to be "No patch is complete without an M48 Patton buff" TL;DR apart from the boost removals and the ping difference, theres literally nothing in 9.20 that I like or even care about. Maybe if the Type 59 was buffed like they said they would. But im still thoroughly pissed about WG needlessly changing the damn T-54.
  25. I just played a game in it. its the second coming of the waffle but with less alpha and no turret wtf
