  1. How would you compare the IS7, WZ-5A and 113?
    It seems the 5A is best? Why?

      I own 5A and the IS-7. 5A sure has better gun(HEAT over APCR)and mobility, but I like the IS better for randoms. The armor is much more reliable, which means the tank has good stopping power, which the 5A quite doesnt have imo. 

       

      TL;DR: IS-7 for randoms, 5A for organized stuff generally. Though for example the IS shits on 5A in Mines middle fights.

      I’ve had the IS-7 for ages and just bought the 5A and 113 the morning the On Track started.

      The 5A is so comfortable to play with -7 degrees of gun depression on that platform. My Object 260 is going to start collecting dust with -5 gun depression on a much taller platform with less agility in a brawl and much lower DPM.

      I really enjoy playing the 113, but agree with @Kolni in regards to the superiority of the 430U in pubs. It stacks the matchmaker since you aren’t paired with another heavy, but can pretty much act like one when hull down. I haven’t compared extensively, but it feels like the 430U aims much more effectively than the 113 despite having worse final accuracy. 

      Overall, all 3 have their merits when compared in isolation. If you are only getting one for the On Track, then I would go with the 5A. The 113 isn’t all that compelling unless you are a long way from the 430U or play CW.

      Im kinda disappointed about the 113. It started out as being terrible from its introduction, they mega buffed it to the point where it became really good and a great CW tank, and then powercreeped it out with the 5A and 430U.

      The poor thing has had a rough life :(

  2. wotlabs stats page is malfunctioning for me... I have about a week's worth of stats not showing, and a number of my tanks including E100, M103, T-54 etc have disappeared from my individual tanks stats list.

    Any idea what's going on?

  3. What the fuck I just completed HT15.3 with honours in the M103

      You might want to watch in 3rd person, I have a horrible habit of zooming in-out repeatedly.
      (MVP is really the Emil who kept me alive in the city)
      A bit sad I didn't get Top Gun but my hands were probably shaking after the entire game and the end shooting was really terrible on my part.

      Is track damage not counted in the results but still valid toward the mission?

      WZ-120 is a T-34-3 on crack. 121 is powercrept. T-34-2 is no.jpg, WZ-132 is still pretty decent. Derpy as fuck gun though because lets give LTs over 0.4 accuracy. 

    4. PlanetaryGenocide

      PlanetaryGenocide

      If the 430U makes it to live in its current incarnation there'll be literally zero point getting the chinese mediums

  5. And is it still worth going for the E5, or is it already not meta

      Ignore them, even if its not "meta" its still a damn good tank. 

    3. Meirzin

      I mean it's still a good tank and I enjoy playing it, but he specifically asked if it was meta and it just isn't the best tank for the playstyle.

      I would go for Conq but atm I can't see myself going through the Churchills... maybe I should bite the bullet and do it already. Thanks for all the advice though!

  6. Hey guys, is the Kranvagn line worth grinding?

      I liked the Emil I a lot. I'm looking forward to the Emil II, but most good players seem to think it's pretty meh on most maps. 

    3. TAdoo87

      TAdoo87

      The Emil 2 is a tank with actual armor and an autoloader in tier 9. It cant be that bad by definition.

  8. Okay so it's broken because it can put out a lot of damage in one go, halts enemy pushes and then takes a long time to reload with its gun out of the fight?

    Sounds remarkably similar to one entire class of 'tanks', no?

    Please explain to me how arty is NOT broken, you fucking WG asslicker.

    Very well done indeed, posting a video saying how something is broken AFTER WG decide - after how long - to 'fix' it.

      Well, not really. The emphasis is on the fact that it can dish out too much damage in too little time and that it is completely defenseless for 50 seconds.

      He won't say it, but I am pretty sure that he knows just how broken and shit arty is. In the big hatred everybody seems to forget that not only is he a unicum but probably the most famous WoT player, so he pretty much is a fucking perfect target of XVM focus.

      I ain't no QB fan, but this constant fucking hatred against him because of his success (I guess most of you are jelly or shit) is so fucking childish and retarded.

  9. I really need to just stop myself from going on tilt in games... but it's so hard not to.

    Time to find a new pastime honestly...

  10. Random status because telling personal matters to strangers online is always a good thing.

    Isn't funny how you can have a long stretch of okayness and then suddenly a combination of non-crucial things happen in your life and snap you feel like you're slipping, sliding back into that black abyss again. 

    Something something Chinese no depression. Just fuck off.

  11. x16 and x25 should help pubbies snipe better, right?

    HAHAHA IF ONLY THEY WERE IN RENDER RANGE

  12. Log into tanks.

    First game, Tier 10, 5 min 7-15 steamroll.
    Second game, Tier 10, 3 min 3-15 steamroll.

    GTFO and get on with life.

      Pity I can't upboat the fuck out of that statement.

  15. Well I guess we should be glad that the IS-6 isn't constructed entirely of driver's hatches, else it'd be even more overpowered.

    1. Daezara

      Daezara

      Don't know whats the problem with the is6, everyone above 200 pen autopens the ufp except drivers hatch. most t8 ht have 200+ pen. everyone below is fucked, but so are they when fighting is3s etc.

  16. With the latest changes in physics (and the T-62A being reported to suffer slightly more in acceleration compared to Obj140) has anything changed in the comparison between the aforementioned hovermeds? Or are the effects of the physics change not significant enough for a review of the standing comparison?

  17. @prolix #fappingintheforest #justMurovankathings

  18. My cardinal mistake is taking the frontlines and pushing the engagement. It doesn't work about 80% of the time on the SEA server. Teammates inevitably either fail to capitalise on your actions (push/defense/hold) or, once they see you going forward, simply camp 400m behind you so they can snipe whatever you spot. As a result, almost 80% of the time I do this, I get rekt really fast. It's just impossible to take point on the SEA server and expect to do well.

    1. Serene_Potato

      Serene_Potato

      When you have good players on both teams, it begins to look like a Chinese civil war battle scene.

      You have the best players on both teams on the very front lines fighting it out, with the pubbies and a lot of players with Malaysian flags sitting back there turning their turrets at each other and releasing IQ into the cloudless sky.

      And people go to the most pointless spots...

      Like you always see people go to that ledge on Fjords to get early damage, even though that position has no tactical value whatsoever. And then they stay there for the rest of the game (while being shot to shit from A9 because everyone went to farm early damage)

      I saw the same thing however I was still doing that despite such aggressive move was driving my stat free fall. At the very least if it works it gave me a glorious victory. If it not work will be a quick dead and I can move on. Being the last man standing to witness all the shitters dying worthlessly is not an enjoyment I would say.

  20. Of all the flanks in a map, the only one that pubbies will go to without fail is the wrong flank.

  21. So whose fucking brilliant idea was it to add artillery/air(?)strikes to Strongholds?

    1. Nekommando

      Nekommando

      Same ones thinking arty prevents camping and promotes dynamic gameplay.

  22. Okay I give up. I fucking suck at this game. 39 games 45% WR 1300 WN8, doesn't matter what fucking tier I play. Teams just roll over and die everywhere.

    1. Hellvn

      Hellvn

      Welcome to the SEA server, but you already know this right?

      Where heavies camp (except on Prok) and lights hide behind heavies...

  23. Stagnating at 2k WN8. Need to read/predict battle flow better, more control of exposure, be a bit less aggressive, pick my engagements more wisely. Fuck me.

    1. Politx_Killer

      Politx_Killer

      Hard to do cause ASIA meta... either YOLO one by one, or red line camp behind arty with no in betweens

    2. ANTICAMPER

      ANTICAMPER

      Play better tanks. After a certain point you can learn more by having advantages.

    3. Politx_Killer

      Politx_Killer

      Slow tanks will help.. As you have to position right from the get go or you are fwarked (mine was the T95) It also gives you time to read the mini map for 90% of the battle and learn the majority of pubbie camping/rushing spots.

  24. After playing well in the Cromwell solo, I'm finding it incredifuckingbly hard to play the Comet... is it the meta or what?

      leggasiini

      Yeah Comet is no longer that great, RoF + depression + mantle were the things what made it cool.

      Now mantle is basically gone (its unrelieable now; afaik easy 8 can pen mantle with AP), which also hurts its 2 other pros. 

    3. Monkey

      Monkey

      HD also made it look weird, all tall and unwieldy

    4. StormCrowReaperManyHats

      StormCrowReaperManyHats

      Yeah I think it actually got taller which didn't help it to not take damage.

      Also as far as the meta goes it's not really just the Comets fault. All of the tier 7 mediums suffer massively, it's the first tier that heavies actually become really, really good. TD's start to have 700 alpha gun options and arty actually starts to get splash and alpha that hurts and they just sees far too many really good tanks as opponents even in the same tier.
