  1. Low-tier tanks are pretty cheap; why not just by a few and try them yourself? (Just kidding man; couldn't resist.)
  2. I do and I did. It does not feel that different to me (except that the accuracy is noticeably worse). I am more interested in other people's opinions on it.
  3. Would love to get some of your thoughts on the post-9.18 WZ-131. I am debating selling it (I also have the 132) but was wondering if the nerfs are felt in actual game play. Who kept it? Who sold it? And why?
  4. Thanks a lot for the advice all. It seems like GPU controls - get the laptop that offers the top GPU (along with meaningful cooling). So it seems like a 17" + NVIDIA 1070/1080. And with those limitations, I can choose the top CPU available, 16-32GB RAM etc. And other obvious selections (1080p, thermal paste, calibration, etc.). Really appreciate you taking the time to post - thanks!
  5. Good point; I should have specified. I will always be plugged in (no need for good battery life). By mobile, I meant that I move/ travel a lot and I don't want to lug around a desktop. My current laptop is this: EON15-S platform 1920 x 1080 15.6" LED Backlit Glossy LCD Graphics Card: Single 2GB GDDR5 NVIDIA GeForce GTX 485M (2GB of Total GFX) Processor: Intel Core i7-2720QM Quad Processor (2.20GHz), 6MB Cache Memory: 8GB Kingston HyperX Dual-Channel DDR3 SDRAM at 1600MHz - 2 X 4GB Hard Drive One: 120GB OCZ Vertex 3 - SolidState It is suitably mobile and I always have it plugged in.
  6. Hi all, I am looking to buy a new gaming laptop, and with a relatively non-limiting budget - soft cap of $2600 - my decisions rests more with that specifications are useful rather than any given brand. I am set on a 15” laptop (I move around a lot). To give you an idea of the kind of power I need, I mainly play games like WoT, Civ VI, Total War, Europa Universalis, and the like. I like to buy top-of-the-line components to get maximum use out of the laptop and I take very good care of them; my last two I had for 5+ years with no problems (including my current laptop, which I bought April 2011). My question is this: what specifications are useful to have for a gaming laptop that would play WoT/Civ6-type games in the year 2021 (ofc, a bit of anticipation is required for this). I am willing to pay premium for high-end GPU and CPU if it would be useful, but I do not want to waste money on advanced technology that I will not use. For example, I understand that 16GB DDR4 2400MHz RAM is plenty for the next ~4 years (again a bit of a guess, I know), and that anything 32GB and above 2400MHz really will not add value. But with respect to the GPU and CPU, I have found less reliable information. Also, I am not sure what hard-drive configuration is best, although I have read a small SSD for OS and a second SSD or disk drive for storage is optimal. I am currently looking at the OriginPC EON 15-X 10 laptop with the following specs: Display Type: 1920 x 1080 15.6" G-SYNC Matte Display Graphic Cards: Single NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 8GB [VR Ready] Processors: Intel Core i7 6700K Quad-Core 4.0GHz (4.2GHz TurboBoost) Memory: 16GB DDR4 2400MHz (2 X 8GB) m.2 SSD Option: m.2 SSD OS Drive Hard Drive: FREE 500GB Samsung 750 EVO Series Networking: Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 8260 SuperSpeed USB 3.0: SuperSpeed USB 3.0 SuperSpeed+ USB 3.1 Type-C: USB 3.1 Type-C Productivity Software: Microsoft Office 2016 Home & Business (1PC/1User) *US Version* The prices is good at $2,438, and actually seems like significantly more bang-for-the-buck as compared to (seemingly) inferior less-customizable rigs like ASUS, Dell/Alienware, MSI, etc. Any feedback on GPU, CPU, and hard-drive specs for a cutting-edge gaming laptop, which does not include high-end components that will not add value within the next ~4 years, would be most appreciated!
  7. Anyone get it on Steam? Wondering if that is a good way to get the game ... I loved IV and hated V, but you all convinced me VI is worth it.
  8. Perhaps many will disagree, but if you are focusing mainly on survival atm, maybe play some scout tanks - focus on spotting and living and while doing that you can see where other people go to get early damage. Take that with a grain of salt; I am clearly a shitter.
  9. Much appreciated. I am doing exactly that. Got close in the T-32 already, so it seems doable as I grind for the E5. I also an heading up to the E100, so I should eventually have two viable options. Thanks a lot for the post.
  10. Amazingly helpful thread - thanks for all of the input! Regarding HT-15.2 (8K combined), I have seen the recommended Tier IX and X tanks and I am working towards them. In the meantime, can you all recommend a handful of sub-9 HTs (incl. prems) that have the best chance of getting lucky and getting 15.2 for me while I continue my grind towards the ideal tanks? I have seen people post having done it in the T-10 and even the IS-3, but the associated comments seem to suggest those successes were flukes and/or based on very skilled drivers. Much appreciated. P.S. - I have an IS-3 and T32 (with T-10 unlocked) and I have pulled replays of people who got it with these tanks; nevertheless, I would greatly appreciate thoughts on these and others as being reasonably suitable.
  11. I know it seems ridiculous, BA, and maybe it is the russian bias, but the IS-3 seems to snap shot well for me. Weird. I was horrible in the M46 and part of the reason was the gun. To be fair, I may be selectively remembering the non-snap shot strange misses, but it was not nearly as comfy as the Pershing and M48.
  12. For me, Pershing and M48 have been the best. And surprisingly (to me), IS-3 has been a great snap shot too.
  13. 110 - 15 AMX 50 100 - 24Jagdpanther II - 27 - 3 = 24. Huge with an awkward rear-mounted gun. No armor at all, which means no hull-down capability. For me, the tank is too fast. I would sacrifice some of that unnecessary speed (distinguished from agility) for some armor. And its reputation results in targeting by the enemy - again, with no armor to defend. The gun is, indeed, wonderful, but of the tanks left I hate this one the most.Pershing - 50 + 1 = 51. Everything I love in a tank. Quick and very agile, making flexing all over the map easy (cap is almost never too far away). Ridiculous turret armor makes hull-down play a dream, providing so many more opportunities on each map. The gun is an absolute dream - laser accuracy, unmatched snapshotting, fast aim and reload times, and an APCR round that is almost a certain pen when you just cannot risk a miss. Also, when low tier largely ignored so predator sniping is a dream. My favorite tank in the game.T32 - 34Obj 416 - 34IS-3 - 68

  15. Thanks PG. I actually got lucky and got the Stug IV LT15 done in my T37 (3800 combined damage). I did just buy the T49 on sale and I have read all about the equipment (debating between optics and vents as 3rd) and crew skills. One question I have: does anyone think it makes a meaningful difference if the crew i use is 2-skill or 3+-skill? I am considering using my female crew, but they are only a two-skill crew (counting the sisters in arms). Alternatively, I could use my M46 3+-skill crew when I get out of it soon (I am in the minority, but it is not my favorite tank). I can imagine a 5-skill crew is fantastic, and a 0/1 -skill crew is unusable. But is there a big difference between 2 vs 3-skill crews for an aspiring green like myself?
