  1. I honestly think they have ended up with the tank we probably deserve as a successor to the T-10. Its a solid tier X tank that is clearly going to be competitive in any situation - but its also clearly not going to be brokenly OP. All in all I think its a good step, during the Murazo era it would have been released with its laser cannon and eventually nerfed down to just silly OP. At least it appears they are aware of how badly they fucked up with the V4 during the bald wookies term.
  2. Even after the buff its still going to be significantly better than the IS-7. Keeps the 1800 m/s APCR, so essentially regular autoaim is going to be aimbot in this thing

    That only works if your opponent is also stationary. Trying to pre-aim for where you hope a weak spot will appear is probably not going to work very often.

    Regarding RNG in Games, in general

    Well, I actually kind of explained it in the rest of the comment. Essentially, if you aim long enough that the aim circle stops shrinking, your shot should go where its aimed - i.e. scale RNG down with time spent aiming to some finite level. Part of this also comes back around to the problems with HE mechanics, Types 4-5, KV-2, etc don't pay any penalty for accuracy, while Panther's, Comets, etc. do. I understand that RNG is WG method of trying to equalize the game across skill - thats fine, but they have given out so many low skill short-cuts in recent years that the game balance is swing too far towards the lowest end. In the end, RNG compensation is why middle of the road players like me end up spamming so much gold. I spent just as much time grinding my 50B as you spent grinding your Type 5, but when half of my fully aimed attempts to hit your weak spots slam into the dirt - I'm switching to APCR and shooting you in the face in exchange for your 420yoloblazeit HE snapshots to my UFP. If I could be relatively certain that my shots would go where I aimed them, I might not carry 40 APCR rounds that I end up dumping into CDCs and arty. (OK, actually I'll still load gold for arty, because fuck them )

    WG's EULA Changes NA

    I'm sorry, perhaps I am a bit naive - but has there ever been any video game where the publisher was obligated to compensate players if the publisher decided to change the game, remove content, discontinue the game, or some other reason? I knew full well each time I pushed the BUY NOW button that what I was buying was a finite usage right for a game product that would some day be gone. Buying a premium tank is no different than buying a movie ticket. It does not entitle you to any real property.
  6. Today is the last day of frontline NA, pop those reserves and grind baby grind

      Shit, I've only prestiged twice...

      Yeah, me too, although I knew I wouldn't finish the 3rd round due to lack of available time for gaming. I did finish with a top-XP General rank in my last ever game with boosters active, which was nice, but only up to level 23 on the 3rd prestige. Need another 2 days to finish. :/

      Fully elited and 81K XP on the Panther II is my FL claim to fame, I doubt I would have been able to avoid rage selling it if I had to do that in pubs

    The End: Object 279

    390 prem pen?

    Regarding RNG in Games, in general

    Thats a silly analogy, why can you not have reasonable accuracy in a game like wot? Why is a KV-2 as effective a sniper as a Panther II? If a stationary tank locks its cross hairs on a stationary tank and fully aims, it should be a hit, everything should scale down from that but fully aimed shots should not fly into the dirt or into space.
  9. I might as well paste the new planned chinese line for 2019 here then . . .

    Regarding RNG in Games, in general

    Thats all well and good, but the closest I generally come to rage quitting is when I am fully aimed in at a stationary target 350m away and my shot pounds into the dirt 20 ft from my barrel. Thats frustrating as fuck and decidedly NOT good for the game - anytime you do everything right and get punished for it, its money out of WG pocket.
  11. I have watched a couple of videos that did not actually feature this tank, and everybody was setting these on fire frontally a LOT, like Dez set 3 on fire in one game. If it burns like chinese fireworks - that could definitely balance it a bit. Probably not 1800 m/s worth of balance, but a start.
  12. Same alpha with a faster reload than the E-75. Without food, just vents rammer BIA the reload will be 12.1 ish. With food and APCR you will be driving around at 50 kph with 252 pen, -10 deg of GD, and ~2500 dpm . . . at tier 8. But hey - the brits still don't get a LT line amIright?!?!

    Murazor is kill

    Panther II - Top Gun Comparo and Questions

    OK so I am only playing this thing in Frontline and hopefully I'll be able to grind it out soely in FL play but man this thing is a turd with either gun. What is the point of a tank that is slow, badly armored, has terrible DPM, and horrid camo. I mean I get its no batchat, but literally the instant my spotting circle crosses enemy tanks my 6th goes off. This tank needs some love, especially in the DPM department. Sniping in this game is a total myth - and if sniping is all you have, you have nothing
  15. So I ground the Caernarvan out almost completely playing Frontline and now I am grinding out the Panther II on FL as well.  I had a 278k credit game in the Pii last night, what a fricking godsend its been to salvage shitty tier 8s.

      Caernarvon is probably the one T8 I'd actually grind in randoms over frontline :doge: T10 DPM on a T8 with workable armour LUL

    3. HowitzerBlitzer


      Caernarvon is far from a shitty tier 8 now, WG always overdoes the buffs and won't backpedal for a while.

    4. Archaic_One


      Yeah the Caern is super cozy once elited now, although the speed is a little bad for FL.  The stock grind on it is horrific though
