    Waffentrager auf panzer iv - Which gun?

    By the time you finish turning around so you can poke without getting lol snapshotted while the hideous reverse speed is failing, or need the gun depression, the battle has often relocated already. 263 has enough armour to survive being spotted for a couple seconds if the worst should come to pass (and the worst ALWAYS comes to pass...).

    Update 1.0.1 world of tanks

    Given how badly the new physics shat on most vehicles? Yes, that is WG's way.
  4. Finally tried playing. Holy fuck they killed a lot of hull down spots and JT apparently gets tracked if you sneeze on it. Should have remembered the old rule of "play a med or heavium after a big patch"... EDIT: 13 90 now accelerates vastly slower and only gets up to 55 KPH instead of 60. Thus new physics are shit too. Yeah no that mission for an Italian T8 premium is too long to bother with considering all the crap 1.0 brought.

    Type 61: Exceeding Expectations

    Back when I was grinding through this tank, it completely exceeded my expectations. Then again, it did it in the same sense Trump exceeded all my expectations to an astronomical degree by not managing to start a nuclear war yet. I expected a 0/10 tank, instead SP I C got that title and the Type 61 was at least a 3/10.
  8. Reinstalled, logged in, saw nothing significant had changed as far as I cared, no daily mission... logged out.
  9. Game will not update. Looks like I'll have to copy my old replays elsewhere and reinstall if they don't come up with an answer on the official forums relatively soon...

    Another T8 French Premium

    Armor looks vaguely usable, wow! But that turret traverse slower than hull burns my eyes. And the EPIC MATH FAIL OF 700/60 = 12.5 WHAT THE HELL Gun looks usable except for elevation, but then again FRENCH... Good luck to those that play this
  11. A Siberian player: "Sir, I regret to inform you that I very much can Even, but this tank certainly cannot Even" https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Even_language
  12. No armour and that DPM burns my eyes. Minimum 3200 single-shot DPM and 2500 autoloader needed to be tolerable with that turret face armour and the even worse TURRET SLOWER THAN HULL WHAT IS THIS I DON'T EVEN. EDIT: Downvoters these days have no idea of how haggling works it seems. Unreasonable initial demands have been standard since the first barter of how many of your goats for how many of my sheep...

    Waffentrager auf panzer iv - Which gun?

    I should correct my earlier post. The gun is great until mounted on this thing. Then it is a heap of shit because it is not possible to leverage it in any way other than bush camping, and the current maps only let you do that when you've already lost. There are a few ways to leverage a gun like this: 1) Sufficient Speed. If you can go at LT speeds, then you can close in and shoot even fi it's a scattergun in handling. 2) Gun Depression/Handling along with adequate mobility or armour to actually use it without being shot to pieces. 3) Enough Armour i.e. T95/Tort The WTF-4 has none of the above and is seriously making me consider giving up on a grind for the first time in my time in WoT. It was tolerable two years ago but now... ahahahahaha... 263 trashes it in every way possibly relevant.
  14. 40mm autobounce UFP AND LFP, comrade! Impenetrable to NATO (except TDs) but nothing to glorious Soviet 122!

    Spahpanzer SP I C

    Just tried an early arty run on Stalingrad, because everywhere else was full or suicidal for a slow autopen paper box. Missed first shot due to cancer gun handling even with vstab, then got run down and rammed-shot by the tier 7 French arty (he didn't splash himself to death despite me shooting him in response), who then continued to push me and casually flipped me over onto my side before I could get a second shot in on him. Then his buddies finally caught up and killed me. I would put a replay here but WoT-Record is only accepting replays from Version 9.21, and the file is 736 KB instead of under 501 KB like this website requires. I don't give a wooden nickle about the semantics of whether or not I should have used repair kit on tracks or whatever. when artillery can run down a light tank (sure, he hit me like 0.5 seconds after I hit a junk pile, but he was closing the range so fast it was quite obvious who was going to win that contest) just because the latter is weaving evasively on rough ground (speed bleed), it's time to give up playing the light tank in question, so I went "ahahaha no fuck this" and didn't bother repairing anything so that I could leave the match sooner. Armour: AUTOPEN EVERYWHERE, 0/10 Gun: Shooting on the move does not exist, shell velocity is a joke, alpha/spike is bleh, turret does not exceed hull traverse. 0/10 Mobility: Gets run down and rammed, shot, and flipped by French arty before you can reload twice. 1/10 Size: Tall enough to be shot by French arty which has literally 0 gun depression. 1/10 Overall rating: FUN (short for FUCK YOU NOW) tank.
