  1. Any comments on the Chinese premium tier VIII td that is in the game files?
  2. If you want historical tanks, the British made lots of weird things that are still not in the game, how about this experimental tank destroyer for historical accuracy;
  3. I would vote Maus. Here is my T55a HT15 completion in a Maus
  4. As I am (a) a potato compared to most of the posters on wotlabs, and (b) I have only just completed the T55a missions, I thought I would save this part of this thread to record the tanks I used to complete Object 260 missions. That of course presumes I will manage to complete any (I dont do arty missions). Here goes; LT1: 59-16 (67% into second perk only) = LT2: HT1: MT1: T34-85 MT 2:M4A3E8 Thunderbolt = MT 3: Pudel during crew missions = MT 4: TD1: Object 704 (with top gun equipped 152mm BL-10) TD 2: Object 704 = TD 3: SU101 (without top gun) = TD 4: AMX AC mle.46 (using the middle 90mm gun not the top one) = TD 5: AMX AC mle.46 (tier VII) (using the middle 90mm gun not the top one) = [TD 4 & 5 came while grinding towards Foch] TD 6: UDES 03 is so much better than the mle. 48 = TD 7 : UDES 03 tier VIII grind = TD 8:
  5. I completed TD15 for T55a in the Skorpion G. Here is the replay; Here is a link to the suggested tank list for each mission, great thread from @TheMarine0341
  6. Thanks for the link to that resource @TheMarine0341 I have seen and used it before. It's just I completed TD15 last night. I had, had a few attempts using my tier X TD's, and as a final game of the night decided to earn some silver and took out my Skorpion G, and blow me, but I completed TD 15 in it. Which got me thinking. Although better players will pick the most obvious tanks to do missions, many other players will come by missions completions almost by luck. Or maybe specific tanks are more lucky than others? Anyway as per the first post, I wondered if there was a way to analyse the figures from a website, or as you suggested datamining cf @RichardNixon Thanks all the same for the link.
  7. I have always wondered if a certain tank has more completions of a particular Personal Mission than any of the others? Is there any way to collect or correlate this data? Is it possible to separate out each of the four levels of a particular Personal Mission and the most frequent tank to complete it e.g MT 13 Incinerator between the four levels (stug, HTC, T55a, & 260)?
  8. On EU there is a channel called "forumites". This is always maintained and is a very good source for finding platoon mates outside ones own clan. It sometimes has a password. This is "play4fun".

  11. Quote from Anton Pankov Q&A 6/19 Question posed by some random Russian player =Supertest already had a Tier 6 Tiger tested. I don’t really understand the need to test the same tank: Heavy Tank No.6, Tiger 131, Tiger 217 … and the conveyor belt keeps going. Answer = "217, we have a cunning plan, it is very insidious". Source = Now what the hell does he mean by that? TAP translates it slightly differently; – On supertest, another Tiger has arrived, but I don’t get why you have to test identical tanks… Jap. Tiger, Tiger 131, Tiger 217… The conveyor is there already. – For 217, we have a very insidious plan. – We know about your plans already. You’ll just strap on a different looking log, and that’s it. – Aren’t you a shrewd one : Source =
  12. Special modes of the past; (edited thanks to @garryallen) 1. Karl. 2. Eight bit winter mode (blocks map three tanks). Christmas 2014. (one is “Mammoth” – boxy T110E5, second is “Raider” – in English it’s called “Arctic Fox” for some reason and it’s based on T-50-2, third is “Berserker” – in English “Polar Bear” and it’s based on Foch 155). Patch 9.5 3. Chaffee racing. 4. Football game. 5. Trench Warfare. Celebrating 100 years of tanks. First world war escort. Convoy. 6. IS8 ball - April Fool's 2016. (added at edit) (Blitz - did a Hallowen ghost mode). (xbox360 - did a lunar chaffee mode). Did I miss any? Valkyrie chronicles tanks, could clearly not look out of place when placed against some of those special modes. For that matter any fantasy/ steampunk/warhammer tanks could also be played in a special mode. But normal server. Just NO. On that point I agree with the above points made by @GehakteMolen. Can I afford to buy any premium tank I want to buy? Yes a few hundred pounds on a game is trivial money for me. Did I buy Patriot, Mle.C0ck, or Defender? No (mainly because I hated the skins when they were first released). I would not buy Nameless/Edleweiss either, no matter how OP.
  13. I have yet to play much tier VI light tanks, and so do not feel able to comment on the tech tree ones. Type 64 was untouched and now able to mount vert stab = nice silver earning machine. I would be tempted to keep the 59-16 due to being able to train Chinese crews in the Type 64 and also I have the Type 62. Tier VIII of the tech tree ones, my feel so far is that wz 132 remains the best alround scout, altho I enjoyed a few games in the bat chat 12t, judgement reserved on the others. LTTB seems good, but not really enough post patch games yet in it for me to say more. M41 90 GF aka Blackdog, untouched from patch and still for me at least a good way to earn silver. AMX 13 57 GF has gone from being complete garbage, to actually being rather amusing in randoms.
  14. (1) WG and the Bovington museum have quite along commercial association over various projects since 2011, (2) Bovington own some of the image rights for the Fury, (3) The 131 was captured (after being abandoned by it's crew) by the British in North Africa, and as the first captured Tiger was immediately sent back to the UK for evaluation. At some point post war the ownership of the vehicle passed to Bovington. But I could be wrong it was merely an assumption based on the above.
  15. Source: I am assuming that Tiger 131 will be put into the game on the weekend of 24th - 26th June 2017 as that is the Bovington Tankfest weekend, when the Tiger 131 gets driven around the arena for the general public to watch and listen to. Source (video is the 2014 event) BUT Two questions; (a) Will the Tiger 131 come with a zero BIA hermaphrodite/Berlin crew? (Ingame UK already has one such crew that could be purchased with the Cromwell Berlin.) (b) Will the Tiger 217 come with a zero BIA hermaphrodite/Berlin crew? (Ingame Germany has not had a Berlin/hermaphrodite crew.) I assume Tiger 217 is the equivalent of the USA Thunderbolt, a "hero" tank, and will thus get a similar hermaphrodite crew, as that is what the Thunderbolt was sold with. I bought the Thunderbolt with missions for the crew. I will run all the Thunderbolt missions and then transfer the crew into a top tier tank. If the 131 comes with an hermaphrodite crew I will buy it ready for the UK light tank line, if no crew then no purchase. If the 217 comes with an hermaphrodite crew I will buy it and use the crew for one of the German tier Xs I have, if it does not sell with an hermaphrodite crew then no purchase. I assume that WG has to pay image royalties of some description to Bovington for the ingame use of the 131. As the 217 does not exist in a museum I assume WG get to keep all the money made. There seems to be some suggestion that Otto Carius' tank pictured in his book "Tigers in the Mud" actually has the numer 213 on it rather than 217. Does anyone own the book and are they able to confirm this alleged discrepancy?
