  1. ++Beer money Hope they approve it for ya this time 'round.
  2. No more separate folders for the download nowadays? What was the font we needed to install? Don't remember at this point.
  3. Haven't played WoT in a while, but was doing one of those "find your location in the world" quizzes where you match a picture to map location...and to my shock I came upon this gem: https://www.google.com/maps/@-22.3043403,-44.3269992,3a,75y,227.71h,90.43t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sz8BFKOLp62mJXxhLfsRykg!2e0!7i13312!8i6656 Idk how many railroad-with-hills-that-closely-match-westfield bridges there are around, but considering how obscure the location is, thought it was kinda cool to find that.
  4. ^ I think you nailed it on the discipline. You can play 500 games of yolo'ing around, or spend 100 games in a disciplined manner and get better than the previous 500. Only difference - concentrating purposefully on improving while in-game instead of giving into whatever momentary urge takes your fancy / going on auto-pilot. That deep purple 100% is so satisfying to look at. Keep up the good work :v
  5. I think there is the potential for a negative effect in padding, but I don't believe it's a problem. There is potential because theoretically those of us who need advice could ask for it, receive bad advice, and use it. However, this gets counteracted by applying critical thinking (as is generally expected here) in two questions: 1. How valuable is this person's opinion in general? Does their logic make sense?Do they have respectable stats? (are they purple? After that, it's on to person-specific questions...WN8/WR only tell you so much)Do their replays show good gameplay?How do other good players in the community view them?It's a never-ending (and with respect to #4, somewhat circular) evaluation, but in the end most get it and this probably filters out the majority of bad posts' influence.2. What do other posters say with regard to the same topic? Seems to me that bad opinions rarely go unquestioned or escape being called out. This removes whatever negativity is let through the filter in #1 by listening to someone who seems better than they are. What's left is a lot of useful info. tl;dr At worst, padding just acts as a sieve for an audience (people unwilling to think) that WoTLabs isn't catering to in the first place. Like Assassin and others have said, everyone has tanks they enjoy playing, and imo this is great, as we get to see specific examples of REALLY good gameplay for whatever tank it is)
  6. Now it just needs a turret
  7. Replaced the extinguisher w/o high-octane, and combined with Off-road Driving: Movement is suddenly tolerable + noticeably easier to deal with would-be flankersPositioning opportunities open up a bitBetter movement + positioning => more survival, more shots => Better effective DPM. I'm grinding 6 crew + credits + the top JP II gun right now, and the grind just went from almost-unbearable to actually enjoyable for what it is.
  8. Added list of resources to OP; not complete yet. If anyone has articles/people to add to the list, PM me - much appreciated.

  9. Q: What percent of the time do you estimate you end up missing due to RNG in AW?
  10. 1 to 1.5-ish months is the time it takes for accounts to be deleted no matter what the reason in my experience, whether botting or player-requested.
  11. Jg88 on Himmelsdorf. I go banana road, hulldown and beat off a Ruskie. My HT "helpers" decide to camp, but there's no time for that so I lead the charge and go kill a Nashorn (I think.) I let the other friendlies wander the enemy side but decide to come back and get shots on those coming down from the top (which got crushed.) At this point a friendly crommie comes rushing down from the disaster, and I ask him to come support me. He declines and we lose the game because I get 3v1'd by a T-34/Tiger+1 and everyone else dies. First game of the night, 3k damage / 3k blocked + HC, and TD.1-15 complete. A frustrating loss. http://wotreplays.com/site/2188920#himmelsdorf-a_terekhov-8_8_cm_pak_43_jagdtiger What would you have done in that situation with the Tiger and rusky (aside from aim better at the T-34)? If I had known the tiger was playing it safe I would have just rushed the T-34, but alas.
  12. Did 1.8k damage with my Jg...plus 2k spotting. Lol what? It's been that (weird) kind of night. http://wotreplays.com/site/2185401#mines-a_terekhov-8_8_cm_pak_43_jagdtiger
  13. Starting to see why people plat. At least with tanks like the Jg88. Damn ELC gets behind me on Mountain Pass (I'm south spawn.) I back up to a wall and get one shot at him, then ram him to 2hp, but can't get a single shot from my team (two of whom I have visuals on) Absolutely infuriating when I had 3k+ damage worth of easy targets to choose from.
  14. IP.Board 4 is like Apple: makes things harder to do in the name of making it "easier"
