  1. Morale: Turn ingame chat off. Pubs hardly know how to push 'w' and 's'- let alone anything about this game. Ingame chat as cancerous as an arty click
  2. It is so bloody embarrassing. Without Kolni's insight I would probably not even have realized that the IS7's deployment is the main issue in this match. Tnx for both the clip and comments Kolni
  3. Ehm. Nothing to do with topic but funny nic pic
  4. The problem with that tank is that you are completely oblivious to any tier X tank. Unless he is paper you cant hurt him.
  5. I have realtek audio HD like Cronk and for me it was excactly the same issue
  6. Is i me or has smth changed with Leo 1 regarding actual aiming time etc. I know the bloom is sh as soon as you move but compared to 50M it seems like forever for reticle to shrink when still. I got an excellent crew so it shouldnt be that. Has smth been done with it the last couple of patches?
  7. 8_Hussars is right. Say you wanna be cheap, start up a new line in tier 5/6 or smth not spending gold or silver on the crew. Then you at least got a TC with 6.sense
  8. I still have this problem at times. The best cure I have for this is to repeat for myself 'now remember to look at minimap every 5 secs' before the start of each game. Combine this with 'stay in arcade as much as possible-fuck sniper mode' the last is also a good cure to lift your chin up and get the overall picture== maintain your situational awareness
  9. WG's decision making as wild as it may seem at times has some logic in it from their perspective. Remember that: -WG's philosophy has alwasy been $-oriented and greedy- player/game experiences are way down on the list -at present around 70% of their player base are Russians(probably close to 80% if one adds up Poles on EU servers)- this is where the $ comes from -SEA and NA servers are so small that WG hardly take them into consideration when it comes to squeeze out the last amounts of cash available to them from this game In other words, the average Russian Joe is the major factor when WG adjusts WoT. Mr Russian Joe is usually high on vodka and playing mainly in weekends. Then he wants to take his big stronk tenk out for a spin. The only fun available to him is to blap loose with derpy guns, the bigger the better. It is also important that his tank is virtually impenetrable from most angles. Sidescraping, use of terrain, bush play etc does not make any sense to him. On the contrary this will usually be reported as cheating, unfair gameplay etc This may appear as a joke but Russia is a weird place. Russian women live just as long as in my country(Norway) but Russian men can only expect to live between 55 and 60 years on average. This can largely be related to the extensive misuse of alcohol in all society classes. Pls take ^^ also into consideration when trying to understand what Serb&co does at all times
  10. Quote High accuracy and stabilization. That’s the feature of top representatives of the Soviet LT branch.
  11. @TheMarine0341 Howdy Sergeant- how do you like the WZ so far? I am having a little fun in Maus the few games I play nowadays but maybe I should burn some XP and try it out
  12. My favorite map by far left.. Every tank class could contribute in a balanced way. But ofc the braindead vodkastinking average Russian pubbie has been complaining on the Russian server about this map too 'WTF MI STRONK TENK GETTS WREKKED EVERI FUKKING GEME..ME KOMPLEEINNNNN'
  13. @DirtyACE7, tnx for support of argument. @Strigonx, the level of frustration WoT can give you at times is enormous. But the focus has to be on yourself, not on your team. Chances are big they are turds every single one of them. And player base gets worse and worse. So if frustration builds up either do like a lot of the better players do, take it out in between games. Or you take a break. If you look at a guy like Straik, he can spend as much as 15mins discussing one single game with collegues and for sure dump a truckload of shit on his fellow teammates. Even when he streams it is like that. This is the ctrl+alt+delete process where he builds himself up again preparing for the next game. More or less every game he enters he is the last man to potentially die on his team. He doesnt give up one single game for free no matter how potatolike of frustrating it looks. No suicide, no drowning, no shooting at teammates. Full focus on his own performance. I am sure you have seen it on streams and it is done so for a reason.
  14. Well, with your rapid advance and solid stats improvement I am sure you have watched a lot of the better players out there and what they do. Some choose to play with chat on simply because that makes it somewhat easier to ask for support etc. But most of the truly great solo players out there dont. Here on EU, the polish guy Decha is arguably our nr 1 at the moment. A fantastic player to watch, silk smooth and superb situational awareness. He focuses on driving the best tier X and IX mediums along with a couple of the heaviums and the 50B. He lets some steam off to his viewers between games when both his own and enemy teams or players act stupid but his ingame chat is always dedd quiet. To play consistently in the 5k WN8 level I believe you need absolutely everything your mind can give you. You have to drive so perfectly that every minuscule move you make ideally should be the perfect one. You strive for perfection. Theres no room for your brain to mess with disturbing background noise, which ingame chat largely is. Turn chat off, turn the christmas tree of xvm colors off, enter every game with a level composed mindset. You will profit from it
  15. I looked it up. Actually Marine and saru_richard concluded pretty accurate. You said you were sorry for foul language and stuff.. Friend, when you play solo, turn chat off. You dont need it. I have committed a lot of sins in that department and foul and salty language eventually will mess with your head and your thought processes. You were partly responsible for creating a hostile tone with the T34 endgame. When 12-13 down, 2 clickers in enemy team I would have preferred to stay together with him but ok. If you want to enter deep purple, carry ability is a keyworld. You must look for opportunities to squeeze out the best of your team even when they appear to be the most retarded one-cell organisms on the planet. When 12-13 down you only had half your HP left. All 3 enemy guns were in the 'high alpha big oneshot capability' category Therefore you needed that T34 to live and to squeeze out a couple more shots from him before he dies. I remember a game Zeven uploaded where the endgame was all about him and a retarded obj 704. Zeven drove a vulnerable paper tank with little or no HP left and multiple enemies to kill. He needed that BL-10 to work for him, but the 704 had found his favorite bush. Whole team could melt that didnt matter shit but that was his bush. He would defend it to judgement day. Have we all seen that before in this game or even partly done it ourselves? Zeven realized the situation and managed to drag the rest of the enemy team in front of that BL-10 in the most miraculous manner. But the most impressive thing was Zeven's coolness, his will to never give in, to always try carrying. Friend, you need to cool down and not agitate yourself unnecessary. In difficult games you need all of your processing capabilities. In the 1-1 situation you clearly misjudged the Emil and what he could do. Your situation was difficult but as Marine said your best chance was to get close to him, ram and facehug him, aiming for one of his tracks when ramming in the hope of keeping him still. He has great depression and quick reload so unless you were in the situation to permatrack him which you were not you got to get up on level grounds with him. Staying lower than him only able to take one shot give him all he needs. All your armor was negated, better angle on UFP, your roof, your engine deck etc.
  16. I hated Serb & co so much for a period that I sold 75% of my tonks including all yankee and stronk tenk tierx's. Not only that but I deleted many crews too, several of them 5x skills. If it wasnt for the daily 5 max sell limit whole account would have been deleted. I guess that was somewhat special, I never sold a tier X tank for $
  17. I do not play much meds atm but I run optics on everything apart from sledges with especially dubious gun-handling like the STB-1. Even then I dont run Vents, a much overrated equipment IMO. If in a Patton you get Prok or Mali you have potential to have sublime vision-games, a reminder of the glorious past and fun. After 15 corridor maps in a row that can be somewhat soothing
  18. You will take hits but try to stay on the backside of slopes as much as possible. The curvature makes it much harder for clickers to hit you with much precision. E100 is surprisingly agile compared to Maus so try to generate small irregular movements also- anything to disturb a full-aim. If you are in the other end of a barrel of say Conc GC or T92 this can frustrate and disturb so much that an ill-conceived shot gets released. Also try to get under your skin arty reload times in combination with when they have fired. Conc and T92 are roughly 45 secs, 53/55 about 35 secs. If you got 3 clickers or more..GL
  19. I respect your brave move to do smth to break the standard deployment, but as a couple of the guys have mentioned against competent opposition it is quite easy to wreck you. Sand river assault defence is the most broken map in the game IMO. Due to this I often take of very passive and defensive positions simply because the enemy will pop up in your sights anyway because they have to deploy quite aggressively(like your move) to stand any chance to win at all. Usually I seek up the mid spots when in a fast tank. But say I am in a Maus I often go to that corner of yours, especially if I am initially deployed in pos 1. And I do not need much help then to completely wreck you unless you got 3 focused clickers or smth. No team in defence will survive 2-3 top meds in your initial pos due to as you point out- permaspotting of middle and most competent players will realize that. So in a slow heavytank with a large health pool I'd gladly take some hits for the team and negate your play.
  20. I'd say this insight is deeper than most ppl realize. When you are semi-fresh in this game you realize the importance of credits and the natural way to solve it is to 'I have to buy a premium to grind credits', falling into one of Serb's $ pitfalls. These days I only demand 2 things when I play in regular tanks: #1 am I having fun? #2 am I effective in this particular tank? and for the premiums I add #3 am I a pretty effective money-maker in this premium?
  21. @DirtyACE7 np mate.
  22. On EU server I would like to thank 'florian41' in his IS-3 for brave, unselfish and clever play. On south spawn Arctic region in a tier X game with our team without heavys and armored td's he went alone to top of ditch. He tracked and peak-spotted and helped me nuke everything that else would have captured our base in my GC. Tnx to this dude I did my SPG-15 with ease. I would gladly have transferred all my XP to him in that game. Beautiful game, Sir
  23. This game wasnt hopeless. You did around 2k dmg in a tier x game with it which was decent. You were not ineffective at all. On the contrary, you started off with going to an extremely risky initial pos spotting for your team. As a general idea that is nice with a russian hover-med, as the t-44 has excellent camo. You also seemed to have pretty good situational awereness, although somewhat unpolished. Your situational awereness were still on a tactical level so to speak, you did not manage to see the general development of the game in the end there. Field was open, it was pretty obvious that bat would try to rape you when you stayed in that pos for slightly too long. Your micropositioning was also very sloppy at times. Around 12.30 you back up into the open ass first to shoot at rhoomba several times showing both yur whole ass and your side- what on earth were you thinking? Go hull down you knew you were going to shoot on rhoomba. You were extremely lucky not to get nuked there. Never ever do it like that. You also were a bit sloppy using bushes as cover both when shooting and when spotting. No need to stay in the open when bush is 5m to your side. Vision/camo you need to work a little on and read yourself up on. You also have a tendency to stay a bit too long in sniper mode after shots. Try to stay in arcade as much as absolutely possible, this will enhance your situational awereness. With your stats this was not hopeless at all, on the contrary. 2 advices: #1 look up Zeven's youtube channel. There you will learn not only tactical but strategical overview of games. Zeven is a true master at this- he manages to have a bird's perspective on everything he does and he has a fantastic pedagogical talent #2 You have the general right idea about driving russian hover-meds which is excellent. You have natural aggression, you spot for your team and you think pretty fast. But still you struggle too much with basic stuff such as hull down, angling, sidescraping vision/camo etc. I suggest you go down to tier 6 and practice some with the t-34/85. Try to master it so that you can get WR in the area of at least 55% solo. It drives more or less like t-44, t54 and t-62A/obj 140 with some small adjustements. When you feel you are sealclubbing with the t34/85 go back up to t-44 again(you can safely jump over t-43 it is the only mediocre tank in the line from tier V upwards) Youre gonna get gudd with russian meds if you only practice a bit systematically and dont skip basic knowledge as most of us oldtimers did first time we rushed up lines. GL with your gameplay
  24. tnx
  25. With these new clicker mechanics I suppose the clicker missions also have to be reworked..?
