    Personal Missions 2.0

    These 279 missions are going to be much tougher than the 260.
  2. Curious what people think of redditors reacting to lab's reactions. edit: just really doing this for another reddit post.

    Obj 277 - Just a worse 5A?

    IS-7 is shit now that I learned where to shoot its turret with 340/350 heat for the dank 50/50 pens.

    As FAME has shown, 277s are amazing when used properly.

      Well, this kind of stuff happens on every clan, where you would have players that were good in the past but they don't play anymore and they came back for certain event in the game, the thing is, I don't get why Mahou needed to do this, having at least 2 teams that IMO could have been better, i.e. if you check the top 20 Mahou players by recent in Wotlabs I think less than 5 played vs FAME lol. Names apparently weight more than numbers.

      Favoritism is one of the downfalls to any team sport/competition. You always play players that are in best form, not bring back someone who used to be good at some point. I understand some of those guys may have been better but that is just that, have been. It's just sad.

  6. It's finally done. Can't believe it took so long... if it weren't for the god-damned losing streak that made me lose 6% overall in this.

      My utmost respect to you, especially when I can't do anything against 3 arty in every game wrecking me into a pile of garbage:notlikethis:

      The main thing was that my teams stopped dying as hard. Let me farm 5.3k average this session.

  7. I browsed around on Amazon since I don't know all the good sites for EU. Seems 2 cores + 8GB RAM is your best bet for that price range.
  8. 50% win rate over a week while trying to mark S conq is fun :kjugh:
    Hovering 90-94% is getting to me.

    Seriously. How are these teams throwing so bad.

      Same, except not just the teams are so bad (as I don't care since I'm doing my 5k per game) but the 3 arties / game can and will ruin the stats for sure. Basically the 90% of the maps I got shit on 3-4x for 550+ each splash so.. yeah I'm at the first mark but still, its painfully slow. For me it will be more than 150 games thats for sure.

      I have been trying to play my super conq too and I can't even reach 3k damage before arty simply buries me as I’m so slow to maneuver and as I get spotted it’s more arty. Playing that tank has been a huge headache lately.

    Prognosis of 705A?

    As per the wise words of schtnizeltruck, it's a great tank but the limiting factor is your gun, which is aids.

    I give up... (after 8 years)

    Speaking of maps, I "love" it when I continually spawn on the same side for every map this game gives me. To make matters worse, it's always the side that has much more trouble accomplishing anything. i.e. Mountain pass north spawn. Fisherman's bay north spawn. Mines south spawn.
  11. Tham Luang mission has been underway and first set of rescuees expected soon.

    The cave graphic shows how difficult the mission is.

      4 down 9 to go. I really hope this goes to plan for them.

      Caving is serious business. Cave diving is lethal business. I stopped doing both in my twenties. I still rock climb.

      I wish all the divers involved the very best of luck.

      They got them all out alive. This is quite amazing.

      edit: well, apart from the one seal :( poor chap/family.

    Comes down to shit map design.

    Literally why I hate tanks now
  14. Previously, I had upgraded my original Devil's Canyon (4690k) gaming rig (https://ca.pcpartpicker.com/list/jCgvGf) to a Kaby-Lake water-cooled setup (https://ca.pcpartpicker.com/list/XQqWgL). Whilst I enjoyed the sheer prowess of my new setup, there was one major flaw with the build: the GPU. Now, you might say "But Fulcrous! You have a GTX 1070! How could it be the major flaw of your build?" The answer is simple: the thermal performance of the GPU was poor. It would frequently hit 83 degrees Celsius despite the fans being manually set to 100% speeds. Whilst this wasn't a problem for titles such as World of Tanks, more graphically intense games like FO4/PUBG/BF1 all took major hits due to the thermals whenever I attempted to stream. Even a mere Heaven Benchmark would result in the GPU reaching 80 degrees Celsisus +. So... after months of deliberation and procrastination, I finally decided to re-paste MSI's GTX 1070 Gaming X model. Opening up the 1070 quickly revealed the problem: dried thermal compound. Note: I had already removed the thermal compound off of the heatsink before I took the picture. To make matters worse, the paste-job was far from sufficient, hardly covering any of the GPU. Roughly a 1/3 of the GPU was in contact with the thermal compound. Fortunately, the re-paste process was simple. I used Noctua NT H1 as my thermal compound of choice and used the pea method for application. The results? Well worth my time. Running Heaven resulted in a peak of 63 degrees Celsius. A 20 degree Celsius drop from before. I am very satisfied with the re-paste results; however I will have to see if the thermal performance is as great during longer sessions of testing/gaming. Edit: Long-term gaming peaks at 65 C.
