    Fallout 76, Online Survival RPG ?

    The good news is - new Fallout game is in development. The bad news is - Obsidian is not involved in this..

    You're not a real world of tanks player until...

    You're not a real world of tanks player until you respond to your gf's question "what are we going to do on weekend??" with the answer "well, hard to tell, I don't know what the specials are yet".
  3. ADVICE NEEDED: I'm staring with spaghetti tanks and need to train the gifted commander to certain tank. What is good tier to start without much pain, tier VI, VII or VIII?? Thanks

      @Katoleras 

      VK3001 and Skoda 40 both have 200+ alpha. All 3 of them have the same dpm (tiny diference of 7). This tank has better bloom on the move but worse turret traverse, aim time and final acc vs VK3001p.

      Also no vk3001 doesn't have "about the same speed" 15.6 vs 17.5 is a big difference. 3001 is MUCH faster. Also if camo is really needed for a tank with shit final acc? 

      And yes I have played it but I find it meh. I play on some donkey account so I can't afford to go full tryhard on tier6 (never did that on low tiers anyway) but vs bottom tier I take the vk3001p any day because

      -More standard pen

      - 14 more prem pen (so it can actually pen t8's more reliably than 180 pen)

      - 10m more view range

      - 10 more kph

      - 2more hp/t

       

      All that for "half the camo"?  All the Spagetti tonk has over the vk3001 is armor so the ability to bully same and lower tier tanks. This is why it's good. Vs higher tier tanks all that armor becomes useless and I'd rather have mobility + better prem rounds.

       

      Also the not bad mobility is actually - fast heavy territory. M6 has  higher power to weight and comparable ground resistance. All the m6 loses is top speed.

      @hazzgarI mean, I wasn't claiming VK3001 is a shit tank... This whole discussion is about whether tier 6 spaghetti tank is good or not. And the truth is this tank is better than 90% of the medium tanks in the same tier. I was able to make it work and it feels very strong to me. That is literally all there is to it.

      @Katoleras when not firing full prem for me it's not very strong. This is all I am saying. When firing full prem yeah it is strong but so is Cromwel, 85M, 3001p. It's just not that much stronger than other meds in tier. I think the tank may simply suit some players. I see the streamers are split about it. QB loves it, Circon or Foch hate it.

  4. Is it just me or is this mode slowly getting more and more campy? I'm around rank 21 or so now and I'm just afraid to advance anywhere as most of the enemy team just bushcamp and wait for someone brave(stupid) to make a move. When I started playing, my first few games were actually fun, tanks driving and fighting everywhere. Now I just spend a lot of time thinking where I could actually go without getting ripped apart by camping tanks.
  5. So what tanks are best suited for this mode? Fo far I play Patriot, Spagetto and sometimes Defender. Scorpion seem to do well too.

    So what are your tanks with the highest average base xp? Maybe the fastest way to get the XP for missions would be to run platoons of pref. tier VIII?
  8. Any tips on how to play the nerfed Hellcat nowdays (for gun marks)? What's the best equipment? Rammer, bino, net? Do you just snipe or you try be more active?

      ehh, I marked it well after the nerf. ran the standard rammer net binocs. Shes still got it, but its a bit more of a struggle. IIRC I mostly played second line, though went and found forward bushes to get shots from.

      1.0 might make it easier tbh because I did it in corridor meta.

      Did you run food as well? I'm kinda cheap now, saving for some tier Xs. I have only 2 skill crew and no food and I hover around 80% atm. Some matches are just too fast and its hard to do a lot of damage

    3. Assassin7

      I dont remember, but I dont think I ran food. 

      I do have like a 5 skill crew in my hellcat though, it was my favourite tank in the game for the longest time. I orginally learned how to play the game with it. 

  9. I have similar problems, I tend to overextend at the start of the game way too often, or I just don't pay closer attention to team comps. It happened to me several times that I went really aggressive for example on Arctic region, I started from south with my med and pushed along water through East, seeing my team heavies are slowly following. But instead of continuing, they stopped short in the second line and just camped there and I got immediately crushed by the enemy push while my team just watched from the back and unsurprisingly got rolled later and we lost. I can have good games sometimes, but I have problem that I just too often autopilot to known good starting position without examining what my team really does and then dying with almost no damage. I kinda hate that you need to be really fresh, focused and relaxed for having great game sessions. Way too often I'm just too worn out from work so I do one stupid mistake after another, as I'm mentally tired. I know I should stop playing in this state but hey, it is hard when you looking forward to get home and you WANT to play the game, get your daily multipliers or missions or whatever.. but you just can't help it from playing badly.
  10. So... The Obj. 268 ver. WTF is going to be on the next Top of the Tree special on EU. Seems like that May will be very chill and pleasant month for playing tier X....

    Obj 430U

    Can I expect similar amount of fires, when hit in LP, as with 430? Would be nice to run food instead of AFE.

    T54 Prototype

    Right, that makes sense. I was about to leave it and wait for some discounts but WG proably heard my thoughs and I just had a pop-up in the game saying that thanks to some epic medal, I'm recieving one time 10% off something from the shop, lol... so I used it and bough the mod 1. Damn wg mindreaders...

    T54 Prototype

    So would you recomend it now after the buffs? I need some russian crew trainer, I have the T-34-85M but it has the extra radioman, so I'm thinking about T-54 mod 1. Is it worth the money now or should I rather wait fot T-44-100 to show up during some special "sale"?

    T-44 undervalued

    We have it on EU righ now (top of the tree).

    T-44 undervalued

    I think it depends a lot on if you want to keep it afterwards or no. But I would upgrade the engine anyway bc it's a big difference (140 horse power difference to be exact). I usually don't upgrade engine first or in rare cases at all if the difference is like 20 HP or so, but then, every bit can count in certain situations, and 140 HP is a lot to miss imho. Also, the T-44 plays really nice and I have fun with it even in tier X, so grinding it little extra longer wouldn't be any problem for me. Maybe you want to rush to the 430U this month bc of the top-of-the-tree event so you want to skip engine. Well.. It's up to you. I'm currently grinding as well, but since you need a lot of XP from tier IX to X, I will just buy the tier IX this month and not stress it to rush to tier X. For me the T-44 is one of the last fun tier VIII med, so I'm keeping mine definitely. Also, it gives nice WN8 numbers even on mediocre games.
