  1. I still think your best bet is a refurbished Thinkpad W530. Yes a bit older but CPU performance hasn't progressed that much. a top of the line Ivy Bridge i7 (4 cores 8 threads). I mean an i7 3820QM still blows an i3 7100U out of the water. (and i3 7100U laptops start at 500euro) Then you got 8GB of RAM stock, easily upgradable, FHD 15.6" screen and stuff like fingerprint sensor etc. You'd probably need to upgrade the HDD to an SSD also. I've had a couple of friends buy refurbished thinkpads before. They're basically indistinguishable from brand new ones. Not even a blemish but they weren't bought online though. I'd ask if it's A grade or if it "looks and feels like new" before purchasing. https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_fsrp=1&_nkw=thinkpad+w530&_sacat=0&_from=R40&LH_PrefLoc=5&_sop=10
  2. Thinkpads all the way. There are refurbished ones online for dirt cheap prices. With great specs and fully upgradable. Thinkpad W530 at around the price you're looking. Or a T420, T520 and upgade the screen if you want something even cheaper. I usually hate laptops because they are designed to fail so you get the newer one. You always see overheating issues. But after I started using a thinkpad T420 that I was given for free by a business that was upgrading, I've almost fell in love with it. Rigid, excellent built quality, fully upgradable down to the CPU. (And since it's designed for business purposes, it's going to last quite a while too) When I was given it, it had 4gb ram and a 500gb HDD. I made it 8gb and with an 120gb SSD. (You can even have a second drive wheere the DVD drive is, and you can carry your DVD drive in your bag if you need it. It's hotswapable without needing to screw or unscrew anything.) I'm thinking of getting the screen upgrade and a CPU upgrade later. But it's seriously not even needed. Although I don't do heavy stuff on it.
  3. Good to see that my SSD decided to give up at the deadest most uninteresting period of the game. It just sucks that I put 30 days prem time like 20 days ago. What a waste. Atleast I'm taking another well deserved big ass break after the end of Frontline mode.  

  4. What a bunch of assholes. Test a tank for 2-3 iterations then change it and release an untested product. 5a now seems to be far superior when you think about the -7 vs -5.5 gun depression too.

    The End: Object 279

    I FUCKING KNEW IT when I saw the obj 276. RIP
  6. Every time I play this shit I realize again it is the worst fucking tier 9 in the game. Screw the god damn tortoise and WGs balancing.
  7. I guess the "balance" team is just a fancy name. They didn't have to go and decimate it!
  8. Even WG is asking how do we even stop this monster... Lmao
  9. Or an FV4005 Stage 1 with an 183mm autoloader lol
  10. I remember when this and the obj 279 were stated by WG that will never be made because they'd be too OP. Everything powercreeped so much these are now fine...
  11. I think this is pretty damn good looking!
  12. I just hope it isn't a prem. I can't handle any more scorpions, let alone this now.
  13. If I saw this 2-3 years ago I'd guess it's a tier 10 tank and HP stat was placeholder... Now? We'll see tier 6 tanks with these stats soon lol

    [Supertest] Excalibur, Tier 6 British TD

    OMG SO CUTE
  15. Oh it's already on test server? I need to get me an IS8. sorry t-10
  16. Thickest point is still just 220mm so every tier 9 with top gun will continue to autoaim it and pen most of the times. But if they do give Defenders for KV5s and IS6s imagine the amount of Defenders in games afterwards...
  17. Well I'm going to miss them for sure. But I'll gladly give an obsolete IS6 for a defender for just 2k gold. Because it will remain obsolete. KV5 buffs were nothing. it will still be Swiss cheese frontally from tier 8 and up.

    What? you can lose your account for "insults and provocation"? I thought that meant only chatbans. I was chat banned for a month in March.
  19. My god I came across some defenders today. How retardedly broken is that tank. It's much more apparent vs only 8s.

    Object 268 V4 Supertest Nerfs

    The superstructure yeah but lower than that if you shoot the drivewheel you can dmg and detrack from pretty much right in front.

    Object 268 V4 Supertest Nerfs

    I think you meant 50-50 with normal ammo. it was 254mm not 300! Now it's an almost guarantee pen for normal ammo too.
  22. The thing is when you DO get artied only thing it does is delay you for 30 seconds until you respawn. You game doesn't end then and there which is usually the most frustrating thing about arty. Same with strike consumables. Their reload is too big and airstrike usually only detracks or something and arty strike rarely hits and when it does it does less dmg than actual arty. Unless you're in a filthy scorpion. In which case you deserve it
  23. I think it's kinda sad that the best looking most interesting part of the map that's the castle/town barely sees any action
  24. I see only positive reactions! Nice! Yeah I enjoyed this very much too when I played it in the sandbox. It's pretty fun in live server too but the hours kind of suck. I regret having no tier 8s to grind atm
