  1. It's linked in the opening post of Part II
  2. It doesn't fix it, no, but it does help many of the tanks with the worst stock grinds. Stock grinds would get a little easier when several of the tanks that would crush you have been uptiered either out of your range or become infrequent sightings. Stock grinds have been awful since the game's inception, but at least a tree rebalance would make that hell somewhat more bearable. Stock tanks are another issue entirely though, and I think there are plenty of ways to make them more playable that don't involve re-balancing the entire game. Introduction of another tier would solve a host of other issues that can't be solved by simply increasing numbers. I think WG has made it clear that they are happy with the status quo when it comes to how unbearable some of these grinds can be, because a couple of interns could have done the work in a few days.
  3. As nice as that sounds, it would never happen. I honestly don't think there's another option; across the board nerfs is exactly what is needed, but the pub outcry would straight up rip the game off its life support. T11 accomplishes much of the same without quite as much outrage.
  4. Every year the idea of a Tier 11 becomes more and more reasonable to me. The fantasy tanks, ridiculous armor designs, and powercreep posterboy balancing nightmare could be at least postponed by pushing problem tanks up a tier and restructuring the trees. Many of these pref MM tanks wouldn't have so many problems if this ended up happening. Back half a decade or so ago this would of sounded ridiculous to me ("what, you want to add an abrams?"), but powercreep has gone so far that I'm pretty sure we could make it to 11 tiers without actually introducing anything more powerful than what we have already. There are absolutely problems with the idea, but I think it's the healthiest solution to the game's problem that wouldn't cause an absolute uproar (i.e nerfing everything). Even beyond powercreep, it would solve a lot of problems. Economic inflation, grind incentive, pref MM, too many top tier tanks, etc. Plus the ridiculous xp/credit requirements could fund like, six more yahts for WG.

    SEA CW is ded

    Almost anything Nexon touches gets turned into a korean grind p2w dumpsterfire, so they've probably got WG beat in terms of annihilating MMOs they acquire. Runescape is a bit notorious too, but Jagex redeemed themselves by going back six years in patches. That would be like WG suddenly deciding to go back to when the Chaffee was end-of-the-line and throwing everything they've done since out the window. Ballsy.

    Elimination: Tier 9 - 2018

    I dont know anything about the 257, but they aren't mutually exclusive. There's other ways for vehicles to be broken than to win too much. There's an entire class devoted to being broken but not OP.

    On Allchat

    It has been a little over a year and a half since WG removed allchat. Looking back on it, what do you think? Did it help or hurt your enjoyment? Do you think it was a good decision?

    T-50-2 Returns

    Aren't track traverse speeds still modified by the difference between the stock and elite engine horsepower? I think the old T-50-2 had a 300HP stock engine, making it way more agile than this. (that has to be the most stupid mechanic in the world though)

      Rexxie I was broken way before WOT. <3 you 

  11. You should post that on their discord server, wotlabs and tanks.gg don't have anything to do with each other. https://discordapp.com/invite/e9rtukd
  12. If you have a question about core mechanics that doesn't justify its own thread, ask and ye shall receive. Keep the questions short and the answers shorter. This is a community thread, anyone can answer just as anyone can ask.
  13. I don't know if you want to be noticed by the clans around NA these days :x Welcome back sweetheart, daddy WG still has your favorite belt <3 you're just imagining things~
  14. It took me until you said that to realize this isn't about warthunder.

    Ikv 90 Typ B, T7 TD

    Because we need a topic to complain about this one, too. Pros: 210 AP pen Very little hull above the gun -10 depression Small Cons No armor No HP Bad gold round Low alpha, mediocre DPM Bad gun handling, poor accuracy Engine damage Blind I was hoping for something a bit more usable than the T6, but the T7 doesn't seem to be any better. You gain a little comfort and lose any raw power the T6's alpha still had. The 210 pen feels like a pretty lousy advantage when the accuracy/handling make it feel more like 175, and the 250 HEAT option is unreliable against everything you'd want to use gold for. Basically, it's a SU-100M1 with a dead loader and no armor. Probably the worst T7 tank, although the newly-released Krupp Waffentrager could easily compete for that title, too. At least you can fit a good crew into that, though.

    T28 "Appreciation" Thread

    I can't figure out how to use the T28. I have massive problems with the mobility/agility, I don't find the armor to be all that impressive, and the gun isn't great enough to manhandle people outside of my tier. The problems seem almost innumerable... for a tank that has given up (almost) everything for its armor, the armor isn't very good. You've got a 200mm glacis, 250mm superstructure, and ~150mm cupolas. It's low to the ground, so many heavies simply can ignore the armor in close combat. The side and back armor is basically nonexistent, and the completely flat roof means a SPG that lands a shell anywhere other than the frontal armor is very likely to pen. It doesn't have much HP, so using the armor it does have is never safe. It turns like a log, so if anything even remotely mobile gets close to you, you're likely to be hugged. And to top it all off, it's a tank that relies on DPM instead of alpha, so somehow you have to keep people in front of your immobile 120mm without them simply buggering off and leaving you to rot. Did I mention this thing moves at 15km/h? So... yeah. Am I just looking at a bad tank, or is there really a way to make this work? I sure as hell could make the T28 Prototype work, I can't believe how much harder this is. (also, my T28 stats are from shortly after release, so don't bother with those)

    I give up... (after 8 years)

    I'd say arty was the #1 reason for most of WoT's existence, but yeah, the reason I quit (and I think most veterans have been quitting for the past couple years) is WG's "balance"/MM. This game has some of the worst powercreep I've ever seen in an MMO. Can totally understand gehak's raging anti-arty boner, though.

    New Heavy for the current Meta

    This thing.
  21. Super congrats hibachi! We're so proud of you. I don't like to talk about my life much, but things have been really rough on me for the past six months or so. Bad health, bad experiences, and losing my SO has made for a pretty rough year. I've gotten some things done that I've always wanted to, but there's one thing I haven't been able to do, and that's come out about my sexuality. I just can't work up the courage, especially knowing how some people dear to me would take it. I have gotten to talk with Bun more often though, and I'm trying to make some new friends, so things aren't all bad. Still besties with @Zytyx, who is a precious bean, by the way!

    Steam Summer Sale 2018 June 21-July 6

    Although I probably would have picked up Conan if they were similarly priced, 75% off Rust is hard to beat. One of the best deals I've seen is 92% off Civ 5 Complete, from a standard price of $150 USD down to $12. Definitely would pick that up if you have any interest in the Civ series. Since I'm talking about strategy games already, Age of Empires II HD is $4, with the complete game/DLC bundle also being $12. Along with EU4, these three games are the best strategy games of their respective subgenres, IMHO. I can't recommending buying EU4 though, considering the bundle costs $101 on sale. If you want it, you might want to buy the base game and "find" the DLC. Everspace also looks fun.

    WoTlabs still the thing?
