  1. https://thearmoredpatrol.com/2018/01/26/wot-supertest-progetto-m35-mod-46-vol-1/ The new mechanic introduced with the Italian tanks is stack loading. From what I understand, a clip is loaded continuously, one shell at a time. The more shells you fire in the clip, the longer the overall reload is. Stats (vol. 1): Stats (vol. 2):

  4. btw I know of the preview thread, just thought I'd separate the two tanks into their own threads https://thearmoredpatrol.com/2018/04/15/supertest-object-277-stats-pictures/

      It's not a very good tank

      Sorry to say but they are wasted credits. Better would have been the 100lt or the RHM or just playing with the t49

  6. Relevant thread of the Obj. 277 (It's the WT official forum tho :^|) https://forum.warthunder.com/index.php?/topic/258986-soviet-heavy-tank-object-277/
  7. You play WoT if you want to bounce off superheavies and die to prem HE (Type 4/5 or arty, your pick) You play WT if you want to get nuked by APFSDS, HEAT, or ATGMs from 1km away I like both games though Good to hear you've been getting your life sorted, though. Here's to keeping it like that.
  8. I'd honestly stop caring about WN8 at this point. The metric itself has been made obsolete because of crappy WG API. Hell, I'm pretty sure PR is a better metric of skill than WN8 these days. To answer the question, damage is almost outright the best way to rack up credits in tier 8 prems (unless you're a light). This means solid damage dealers with good credit multipliers (Löwe, S1) are the go-to tanks here. Since you're counting on doing lots of damage, you're better off with crappy teams so you can farm more damage and get more credits. You also get more credits from winning [citation needed], so you have to win your battles. This basically boils down to gitting gud when making money.
  9. I can't believe I hate this tank

      tbh i hate it to, and i also do really well in it. not really sure why :fat:

      prob just the fact that im not a fan of the TD class in general

    2. ZXrage

      TD's are fun if I feel like not doing much (Strv S1), it's just that the Skorp is a MT-TD hybrid that doesn't do both quite as well as a dedicated one

      also the gun feels like a dice roll

      I don't love mine, but those $$$ tho

    Dump your frustrations and discussions of the map here. Went into a training room before my first match, ended up not using much info since that first match was in the S1 lol

  12. well thanks to the 1.0 beta, playing WoT is hard to do because it hasn't been optimized well enough to run smoothly

    guess I'll take a break for a bit

      There is a micropatch due for today on the EU server, that meant to help with the loading issues.

      I get a freeze for like 1s every battle during the countdown. Always at 6s. Other than that weird hiccup, I get a higher frame rate than I did with the old 9.XX SD client.

      1.0.0.1 fixed the freezing for me.

  13. https://thearmoredpatrol.com/2018/03/14/wot-supertest-progetto-m40-mod-65/ New tank on supertest, along with the tier 8 and 9.
  14. Tank is back up this week, still worth the buy? Seems fun but I need to work on my LT gameplay.
  15. Is Glacier a 1x1 or Grand Battle map?

    1. nabucodonsor

      nabucodonsor

      A terrible 1v1 campfest

    2. Darvek

      Darvek

      Campfest as in 12-15 minute battles and 15% draws, or the more modern definition in which the game merely lasts 7-12 minutes instead of being over in 3.5? The current game could use some more camping, IMO. Yolo rushing like we're playing a respawn shooter annoys me.

    3. nabucodonsor

      nabucodonsor

      Campefest because of how bad the map was designed. You either brawl in the north or camp in the rest waiting for people in the middle to show up to get blapped. It's like Airfield imo where you cant be aggressive because if you make a move you get balanced by camping tds or arty

  16. Looking for platoon mates T9

    I'm down for some 9's, love playing the T-10 and M46. I'm not as active as I used to be, though.
  17. Q: How is the Obj. 268 V4 doing?
    A: There are a lot of voices, both good and bad, but that means that the tank is balanced. A nerf is improbable, but a buff very possible.

    Fuck you, WG.

      How could anyone look at the performance of this tank and think it's even close to reasonable?

      Seriously, the DPG in that thing is 135 points better than any other tech tree tank (the 430U, but that's at least only slightly ahead of the 5A). The only tanks that beat it are CW reward tier 10s, which aren't generally available to 43% bot wannabees to drag down their stats.

      Further proof that none of the idiots running this game actually play this game . . .

      so basically WG thinking:

      "some people think it's good" = tank is fine no nerfs needed

      "some people think it's bad" = tank needs buff

      put them together and you get "no nerfs maybe buff"

      :serb: 

      im trying to comperhend this...

    Fuck me, lads

      Is "oral defense" a fancy name for biting people?

  21. Forum Software Updated

    Sweet new software Never, thanks for keeping the forum going all these years too. Also, what's the difference between updooting something and liking it?
  22. Tank Trade In - What to get

    I'll sit on my IS-6 until they buff it. When it turns out like crap I'll probably trade it in for a Lowe or something. Also I'm thinking of trading in my niBBer Pz 58 for something else, good idea Y/N?
  23. The 252 has worse gun handling and accuracy, which means the IS-3 could put shots down range more reliably. Turret roof weakspot is replaced by the cupolas. It's a larger target overall, but the roof is below it so it could still bounce. The IS-3's roof has the autobounce roof beside the overmatch one, so it's still about the same in terms of weakness compared to IS-3. Mobility is objectively worse. If you've played both tanks you could tell the IS-3 is slower. Frontal armor is about the same, since IS-3 is ~200mm effective at the front. Just dont shoot the 252's pike and you're fine. If you have 200mm of pen, that is. Overall the IS-3 is better for people that know how to use it compared to the Obj 252, with the 252 being a weird heavier-armored sidegrade thing, but the 252 can be very very annoying. It's also premium and can be bought so ehhhh
  24. Obj705A - No one really plays this?

    This tank seems like an interesting concept, in-your-face sidescraping and 650 boom seems fun, but the 268 4 is still a thing and it doesn't have that much pen
