  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. 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.
  3. 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.
  6. 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.

  7. 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.

    New Heavy for the current Meta

    Both are fine. I think the 277 would be a more forgiving tank though.
  12. Fulcrous

    New Heavy for the current Meta

    Any of the heavies that can take hits while dealing loads in return (i.e. 7201, 277, 5A, IS-7, etc).
  13. Most likely it is fake. You won't see aftermarket 1180s until AFTER the initial founder's edition. Confirmed fake. Original Box has WoWS sticker. Notice the botched cover-up denoted in red below and refer to website below as well. http://fotoforensics.com/analysis.php?id=e54d63810056467227081678779415956eccf70e.82413&fmt=ela&size=600&i=66096270

    i7-8086K

    Since it's practically the same architecture, you'll see more or less similar overclockability. See 7700k --> 8700k.

    Tier X Polsky - the Levandowsky

    My mistake. I was thinking about the PZ7 with its ~315 APCR and mistook it for the 7201 to have lower heat. 705A has 317 heat and it works. The accuracy is just aids.
  16. Fulcrous

    Tier X Polsky - the Levandowsky

    317 heat isn't bad per se. The 7201 was really strong with 314 HEAT before it was buffed to 350.
  17. Fulcrous

    For 1.01, what's better for HT 15.3, S Conq or Maus?

    Doesn't matter when everything spams HE. Blocked comes down to sheer luck with getting idiot enemies to shoot you with AP/APCR/HEAT knowing full well it will bounce anyways.

      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

    The K-91 thread

    I'm running rammer/VS/vents with food. I'm running a 6 skill crew so my view range is at 472m. The reason I went for vents is to make the already superb gun handling as good as it can get so I can constantly poke for shots and hide immediately after firing. Optics would be nice for the 500m+ of view range, but with the way the meta has devolved, I don't think there's a use for optics on a soft med like that anymore.
  20. Mediums are so aids to play. Cant push. Can't hold flanks. Can't trade against all the HE spam. Etc.

      @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

      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.

    Graphics settings

    Dynamic only affects this: I have mine off because I'd prefer to not randomly get pixelated screens when it adjusts settings.
  22. Fulcrous

    Graphics settings

    Dynamic just means it will adjust the visual render quality when necessary. If you want the most performance, run the lowest settings you are willing to go without sacrificing visual pleasures.

    WG has gone soccer code crazy

    It's football. It's called soccer in the states because of A. Football and its easy to confuse between the two when both are called football. I love both sports. I just hate the term soccer.
