      No one plays this shit game anymore, much less a shit tank.

      'Soon'.
      Seriously, looking forward to the 23 HP/T, 10 degrees of gun dep and 2300 base DPM. Should be a pretty good pref MM med once (and if) these changes drop.

    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".
  4. 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.

  5. 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.
  6. So what tanks are best suited for this mode? Fo far I play Patriot, Spagetto and sometimes Defender. Scorpion seem to do well too.

    M35 Marathon Megathread

    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?
  9. 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?

    1. Assassin7

      Assassin7

      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

      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. 

  10. 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.
  11. 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....

      Yes, now in april it's T-100 LT. TDs are next in May

    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...
  14. MatzerMike

    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).
  16. MatzerMike

    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.

    WZ-111 1-4

    I have question about Safe stowage perk. Although there is dedicated topic, with a lot of detailed info how this perk (should) work, but I just want to ask this - is there any noticeable difference having SS on your WZ crew?? I moved my crew to tier X and starting a semi-new crew on IX with girl commander. I want to focus first on repairs and bia, but I just hate getting ammoracked all the time from everybody. Does the perk help at least a little bit against small caliber guns from enemy scouts, meds etc? As it should increase the AR hp pool? Thanks
  18. My ping on EU is around 200 and it is very bad to play the game. if I check my ping through websites, it says my average ping is 12... Anyone having same problem? Is this because of the ranked battles?

    1. Assassin7

      Assassin7

      average ping to the WoT server? or to those websites/servers your visiting?

      two different things.

      Working for Czech/Slovak ISP, currently registering this issue as well, no idea what is causing it yet. Issue was first reported yesterday in the evening, both EU1 and EU2 have this problem.

    Ranked Battles Tank Choices

    I hate loosing lots of credits in ranked because I'm bad playing mediums and heavies (and I spam a lot of prem. rounds). Found out that E4 is a fairly good pick (not just for me but for other players too, judging by result screens). Usually I don't enjoy playing TDs anymore, but with E4 I just play second line, heavy/support role. You actually bounce quite a bit if you wiggle and there is almost no need for prem. rounds (and if there is, you have great one). So I can actually make like 30k + credits on good games. And you only need to connect a few shots to be near the top.

    Also, I think that there was an option to buy reward CW tanks with bonds, if you didn't get enough points with your clan. Anyone knows how it worked exactly? How many bonds were needed and is it worth piling up if you want to get, let's say 907, but your don't really participate much in CWs?
  21. Anyone knows about some good invitation/bonus codes?? Starting a new alt and need some boosts. Want to grind tier X to get  T95E2 so I guess fastest way is going IS7 line right?

      I saw a player yesterday with a name like New_Account_to_Get_T95E2. I chuckled. Wish I had done that to avoid all the “reroll” discussions in chat. 

      I’d play the T95E2 more despite the worst-in-class gun if it didn’t hemorrhage credits like mad. I don’t like having to grind credits just to be able to play a tier 8. It’s dumb.

      The Russian med lines aren't a bad grind. Pretty easy and not really too bad xp wise

    WZ-111 1-4

    I really don't get how everyone says that this tank is similar to T-10. Even the main official info says "This tank plays very much like an T-10". And bc I love my T-10, I was excited to get and play the 1-4. But when I did, I was quite negatively suprised.. The gun is just bad for snapshots (or even fully aimed shots tend to go nowhere near) and I swear there isn't single game, where I'm not ammoracked (even multiple times) and have some of the crew down. Can't play with food, I have to use 2 repair kits, just for the stupid ammorack. I'm not saying tank is bad, it's got good potential and I just started learning to play it, but still... T-10 was like constant love and it is comfort tank for me. 1-4 on the other hand, it just plays with my nerves sometimes. Can I expect similar experience with tier X?

    Shift for Sniper Mode: why is it bad?

    I wonder too. For me, using scroll is always bit clunky, compared to one hit on the keyboard. Also, i would love to have the setting in game, which allows you to have default zoom-out level. Now this is possible only through mods, which I hate reinstalling after each mini-update. Most top streamers tell you that it's best to play with no mods at all, which would be totally possible if WG would give us couple more setting options.

    Is the STA-2 any good?

    Hi, anyone still plays this tank? Is it worth keeping?
  25. MatzerMike
