  1. 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.

  2. 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.

    1. Vindi

      Vindi

      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.

  3. Tham Luang mission has been underway and first set of rescuees expected soon.

      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.

      Have you got the Alsain mod that tells you what is the real aim time? I am curious to know what it is.

      Also just my opinion I am starting to think the maps and the meta are now kinder to the Leo

      @Sapros I know it's basicaly a tradition that we don't agree with each other but compred to how competitive it was to now it does. Yeah it might not be a Leopard but it has been powercreeped like the 50M. The fact that you can play it well doesn't change the fact that the tank performs not as well when everything now has alpha, HE or has great hull down capability.

      Not nearly as irrelevant as other meds. w/e 

    4. hazzgar

      hazzgar

      @Sapros well it's like saying "I'm a tall midget". Most meds are irrelevant. 430U is the only one that works on every map. Fatton works on mapy + autoloaders can at least exploit mistakes. Though I think the 62a got hurt by the map changes where WG prioritized ridgeline fighting and gave gun depresion to many tanks. 5deg 2 years ago was ok, now it's as low as tanks get. 

  7. There's rare moments when I truly do enjoy World of Tanks but they are too few and far in-between. Getting yolo rushed/XVM focused while hiding behind a group of tanks/left to die by the cesspool of humans that shouldn't be allowed to breath...

  8. These autists. Apparently moving across the entire map means you're camping, too. Can't even get past 60% at fucking tier 7 with these autists dying left and right when they're fucking camping.

      The rest of the team literally sat there in the open at spawn getting shot from mid and both flanks because they couldn't be bothered to even drive behind a rock right in front of them, or ANY direction for that matter. 

      It would have been funny if it weren't so sad and frustrating.

      (Was on Glacier FYI)

  10. I love it when teammates actually listen and you end up scumfucking TYPE5 DDOSERs  ON TOP OF RNG WORKING IN YOUR FAVOR FOR ONCE:MingLee:

      Nice game. It is nice when you get some teamwork in spite of the team chat.

  11. Lo and behold. The E-50 has made this game fun for me again.

      At least you learned it in the first place, unlike moi.

  14. I don't know what I expect to accomplish by playing tanks.

    Honestly, did I expect people not to be autistic enough to not melt in 2 minutes?

    1. Darvek

      Darvek

      Some times I'd settle for teams that merely melt. There are enough trolls and teamkillers and afkers that yoloing idiots seem positively wonderful some days.

      Tbh, my best mood to play WoT is when I don't expect nothing from anybody, and kinda works, because I don't get pissed even if my team is extremely retarded or I get yolo pushed or shit like that.

      I didn't mean "better games" as in for tanks. I literally meant other games that aren't tanks.

  16. Not even 2 months in and 7 fucking school shootings in the States. Then Trump administration repeals any form of restriction from the Obama-era. Come the fuck on America. Why are you a backwards-assed country? What is so "great" about people dying because of outdated ideals that originated from time of war?

      Decent medical care, and decent mental health care would do wonders in America. Too many times I've been called to do a mental eval of someone who is pants on head crazy, but because he's alert and oriented, not currently posing a threat to themselves or others, and not stating they're GOING to become a threat... I can't make them go to a hospital to seek mental health assistance. And LEO's can't do anything to them, because they've not broken a law, yet. And thank gods, thoughtcrime isn't a thing here.

      @Raj selfdefence is one thing, allowing people with psycological issues having guns is another one. Guns are dangerous, guns are meant to kill. Noone in this world can deny this. So when you allow people who do not understand that they are not toys or are mentally instable they will hurt someone (be themselfs or others) sooner or later. Because guns are only meant to hurt.

      There's no system in place to stop someone who is going to have mental issues down the line from getting a gun.

      The emotional /psychological volatility rate is extremely high in US. I have seen a lot during my commute to NYC every day

      I can definitely say one aspect is related to finances. At this current rate the government is trying to push down more taxes for their incompetence. 

  17. The biggest problem with gameplay in tanks is the lack of ability to flex and reposition. Most games are literally camp fests that require you to slowly break them before you can flex. The poor map design is even more apparent after spamming PUBG duos for 2 weeks. On Miramar, no matter how fucked we were positioning-wise, we could always flex and turn a shitty situation around into our favor - simply because the map design allows for it.

    1. Tman450

      Tman450

      Map design is my biggest problem with the game. I find myself hating almost every map in the game, and it really detracts from the gameplay experience. we need something other than 3-lane shit.

      The fact that WG was able to transform those giant new maps for grand battle to corridor maps is quite the achievement tbh.

      @DHP It was easy once WG realized that large, flat, open ground in front of small hill where TD's won't be spotted and can remain in camo while firing was a good a mountain or a building. Voila! open map,

  19. Got focused out by a scum fuck in arty on swamp in my 7201k. Behind a building? I'll splash you.
    Behind the mountain? I'll still try to splash you.

    Non-stop. 12 fucking minutes. The kicker? His name is WhineMaker.

      those tank much better than other tank, what do u think?

      dmg farming with better armor and mobile. other tank there were shit. how does those tank better than someone else play in pubs before jump into real clan wars.

       

      stat padded is beyond where NA is insufficiently players. all these years and past they research through forum only few tanks can manage some good point and easy to do than other tank.

  21. Casual 40t mark.

      Some people say that the Lorr is better than 50 100, what do you reckon?

    2. Fulcrous

      Fulcrous

      Hard to say. I reckon they are equally good but one can influence a match more heavily than the other.

      A lot of the people claim the 40T as superior to the 50 100. Part of this is because of how "easy" the 40T is as its clip time of 32ish seconds is more forgiving and therefore managable by most players. Consequently more people can play it to a higher level (hence high skill floor - it is hard to perform poorly but easy to do well). As woth any autoloader, you still need to know typical positions, clip time, future positioning, flow of the game and so forth to continue being effective.

      The 50 100 in contrast requires you to know everything you would do in/know about the 40T but to a greater extent. The 50 100 is a specialist role. If you cannot play the tank to near perfection, you cannot/should not play the tank over a 40T. This used to be the case in WGL when 7/54 was still a thing. The people who played 50 100s could single-handedly change the flow of a match with one clip. The same concept held true in pubs. You HAVE to make sure your clips hit at least 5/6 (roughly a tier 8 hp pool) in order to be relevant. Any less and you are useless as the near 50s clip time crippled your team. For this reason it has a very low skill floor as it was highly unforgiving and very easy to fuck up. However, I believe mastery of the tank puts it above the 40t for the simple fact that it snowballs any engagement out of control.

      I would think of it like the batchat 25t as the 50 100 and a batchat with 4 shells (can no longer 1 clip t10 meds) and a 30s clip as the 40t. While the reduced clip time makes it easier to play for all skill brackets, nothing comes close to the game changing prowess of a mastered bat.

      Tl;dr

      40T is better for more players due to managable clip but 50 100 has a higher skill cap and is also exponentially harder to play well.

  23. Strv 103B is the most bullshit tank I have EVER played.

    Some fucktard in his light tank or RU med will autoaim pen me and set me on fucking fire yet, I'll shoot at its fucking weakspots with 15cm caliber guns and fucking bounce all day because RNG brings the shot to an autobounce angle.

    1. Archaic_One

      Archaic_One

      And then I will bounce an entire fully aimed clip from a 50B off of you (because not 122mm), then you will go dark at 250m . . . It is the epitome of the WG model of 'not fun to play, and not fun to play against'
