  1. EDIT: Seems to be an issue with formatting in terms of spoilers. Unfortunately I do not understand why this is the case. If that could be fixed it would be appreciated. VK 72.01 (K) - The King of Heavy Tanks Introduction In a meta-game that has devolved from the historically dynamic gameplay of vision, flex, and map rotations to a primitive style of brawling in lanes and corridors, the relevance of medium and fast heavy tanks has severely diminished. As vision, flex, and map rotations became less important, the ability to survive, deal large amounts of damage in a single trade, and anchoring of positions has become paramount to dominating games. Many players still have conflicts as to which tanks reign supreme. The top 1% will argue that given the afore-mentioned parameters, the Object 277, Object 705A, Super Conqueror, 113 or WZ-111 model 5A are the optimal heavy tanks for this shift in the meta-game. I regret to inform you that none are correct. It is the VK 72.01 (K) - the King of Heavy Tanks. That’s right teamoldmill. Germans are #1. My Qualifications Literally the highest win rate by a large margin in the VK 72.01 (K) on NA/EU according to DPGwhores.com whilst having competitive DPG with the top 10 players and at least 150 games played (data is outdated on DPGwhores). No one comes close in terms of win-rate. At the time of writing the guide, I am currently at 240+ battles in the VK 72.01 (K) with a win rate of 75.83%.
  2. Hello dpg brother. It's a shame DPGwhores is oudated by months now

    I was lazy and ended up using Aslain's mod installer to do that. Remove any of the extra mods you don't need from his modpack.
  4. Since its vancouver, i would need to double those hours to barely afford a house
  5. 52 hours of work next week. Unfortunately that means even more delays on map position updates. Will post when its available.
  6. I was hired for this place I work about 2 months ago.  Get a phone call asking if I could give a reference about a candidate that sent in an application, who also turns out... to be myself?

    Cue awkward conversation that I was already hired and that whoever must have sent in the application under my name and referenced myself must be pranking the company. In all fairness, the caller sounded new.

  7. Flat on it's still weak. Over-angling is the only way to bounce 340HEAT. Even then it's still a 40-50% chance to pen. The mantlet holes still exist. I just didn't bother putting that in the frontal armor profile as if you are exposing that when the enemy has a shot, you are playing the 7201 (K) wrong. @sr360 I felt like throwing in teamoldmill in there since he would always complain about Germans being under-powered on the official forums back in the day.
  8. The battery should be able to run the laptop under load. It may be an issue with settings that when the charger is unplugged, it switches to power-saving mode and therefore causes shutdowns. This would be my initial suspicion due to the fact that you are able to run 3-4h with the battery. Right click the windows taskbar --> search --> Control Panel --> system + security --> power options and show us your settings on the main menu and advanced power settings.
  9. Due to my profound love of the VK7201 and (assuming normal schedule) the campaign around the corner, I've been wondering... does anyone want an in-depth VK7201 guide/review from the guy with the highest 150+ game WR NA/EU in the VK7201?

      VK is fantastic. Sometimes I do miss the old top speed, but everything else makes up for it.

      I always appreciate anyone willing to put the effort into generating high level content for the wotlabs community.  Even, if I currently don't have the tank yet.

    Not gonna lie, it is my favourite map in the 7201. Absurdly easy farm with max VR, 350 HEAT, high alpha HE, strong armor profile, and the number of crossfires you get from playing central tracks. On a more serious note, it is an awful map. As predicted on release
  11. edited to account for sold items. Selling these parts after upgrading to a 8086k and MSI 2080 trio. 7700k = sold z270 = sold 1070 = not sold. $375 CAD + shipping if not local. Alternatively hit me up with reasonable offers.

      I'll be laughing when DLSS is out. Not worth buying a used 1080ti or a new one for me when 2080 is same price here.
      Turing NVENC also made it well worth the cost. Superior image quality to x264 when streaming.

  12. Signficantly worse turret
  13. Such an accurate analogy. Play a superheavy and you have 3 outcomes. Get fucked getting an open map. Others get fucked on in city maps. Or you get a neutral outcome where it depends on your choice of pathing. Same shit for every tank class.

    Tracking team WN8 over a series of matches

    Had literally just gone into position. Then this occurs. https://giant.gfycat.com/LiveAncientFeline.webm 2 more tanks yolo'd but it was too long for gfycat. I would have understood if they pushed as a unit buy 1 by 1 Needless to say, we won.

    Tracking team WN8 over a series of matches

    It's one of those things you dont know how bad it gets until you actually hit that point. Every game I played that led me to basically quit has resulted in some form of dumpy retard yolo/arty focus (despite timing shots) every single match.

    Making all the good players quit.
  17. Every week or so I play a single game to remind me not to touch this game. I don't understand how anyone can keep playing this shithole of a game where XVM focus/yolos/bullshit RNG and MM is so prevalent. Even when I platoon with irl friends on occassion, they can see the blatant aforementioned bullshit. Honestly to keep playing this game frequently - in its current state - on a regular and consistent basis, you need to have some form of brain damage. I fucking miss tanks before XVM endorsement and shit MM teams.

    Even games like LoL with INTers are more fun to play than this.

      @Zinn why play Chinese phone games when you can try hard in GBF with guild war schedules more rigid than WoT>

      Huehuehue, I don't even have a smartphone, it was just to make a point about WoT. That said, gaming on a schedule ain't ever gonna happen to me. Just imagine letting other people decide when it's time to have fun :doge:

      Got kicked twice (or thrice) from klenz for the exact same reason. Showing up on time as if it's a job is bad enough, not even getting enough players for a full team in the end is even worse. Then again WoT isn't even fun without platoons and the game fucks you for those now

  18. Tier 10 on NA right now has nothing to do with skill. Games will literally come down to which flank of pubbies is able to abuse the others' idiocy the best. If you want to win, tanks with a 3 of the 4 combinations of high alpha/survivability/mobility/gun handling are the way to go. Everything else is really difficult to attain 70%+ wr solo barring the top of the server. The only tank I can reliably pull 70%+ whilst maintaining high dpgs right now is the 7201. Tier 10 is very unforgiving due to the influx of poor players throwing their tanks away like candy on halloween.

  23. Note I will be selling my MSI Gaming X 1070 which has been re-pasted when the MSI 2080 Trio is back in stock so depending on how long that is, I could sell fairly cheap (300-350).
