  2. Is it really a buff from teh front? Could be just a feeling -but in the games I've played since the HD remodel I've bounced a lot fewer shells from the turret front,
  3. Hey all So (because so many are doing it and damnit, I'm a follower)thinking of grinding the 183 line before the replacement. (And because that replacement tanks looks sexy) But most of what I can find on the various AT seems to predate the Japanese heavies and the Swedish TD line. AS well as buffs to various tanks, new premiums etc, so (to me) it looks like armor that was "OK" a few years back is decidedly useless now. I like the idea of the line (just stack DPM on more DPM) but I'm not sure how it will play out in the hands of an average player. Anyone have any recent experience?
  4. Yeah I think I'm going to have to sit way back and support, keep seeing these things all over the place, and they're just so easy to pen with even a semi accurate gun. Just wish I knew if the new T10 was going to have good armor, or if they're going to continue the "well the armor is kinda crap but it's a DPM machine" idea.
  5. Trying for all 3. Although I'll probably give up at some point. Those damage/kills missions won't be hard...but win 18 games in each of two tanks...that's going to be challenging.
  6. Apparently can't delete status updates, so let's just say i suck at reading posts.

  7. How do you guys make so many credits/hour? I keep seeing things like "I made just over/under/around a million credits playing for an hour" and I'm not seeing how.. Granted you're probably a much better player than I am, but running a 50% Credit bonus, my absolute best games make around 150K, And those are good enough that I don't see anyone consistently doing it 6+ times in an hour.(or maybe that's your average game and I suck that bad)  Am I that delusional about my skill level? Are there better than 50% credit boosts ? Or am I missing something?

      where does one get +200% credit boost ? :fat:

      Every so often people are asked to send in pingplotters when the servers are shitting the bed. Then someone from WGNA manually credits reserves.

      3 hours last night I went from 5.1mil to 8.9mil credits

  8. So I've never played this at all, but thinking of giving ii a try- mouse and keyboard OK or should I dig out my old whatever it was flight joystick ? Any suggestions on lines that are good for beginners or that should be avoided? Mindless fun sounds great, but I don't want to start going up a line then discover the high tiers are useless.
  9. Yep, traded mine in towards a Lowe. (So it was a very expensive Lowe) Watched a few more replays, style seems to be do nothing, wait to see where the red team is going, go there and shoot them run away or redeploy depending on how it goes. Style 2 seems to be camp in one spot, completely ignore supporting your team, wait until the red team is over running your team, farm what damage you can while telling them they suck,. I think there has to be more "look at the damage i did but my stupid team lost the match" replays for this tank (or line actually) than any other one in the game. In either case, line is not for me, just irritated I was stupid enough to put 3 female crew into the line. Ah well, maybe that T6 premium is fun.
  10. Had decided not to run this line...and the WGNA decided it was going to be the 3rd On Track in November. Given that it seems just about everyone else on the server has or will be doing it, might as well Lemming along. Tried playing the Tortoise as an assault vehicle on test..and it didn't go so well. (had thought it would be sort of like the Jagdtiger, but it's not) Do they work Ok as Snipers? (They would seem to, decent shell velocity, fantastic gun arcs.. but that camo...)
  11. There's no way they're going to give a TD, let alone a Russian TD, that kinda of DPM and accuracy. It's not going to happen. The SU-122-54 as listed is far worse (except for pen) than the WZ120FT So either this is fake, they're placeholder values, or the line is going to have so much armor the only way to damage them is by using arty.
  12. Any chance you have any replay packs? Been trying to figure out the STRV, (so similar) but not sure how to play the on a variety of maps, and the only ones I found uploaded were games where the red team was kind enough to drive slowly forward and let the poster rack up the damage. So I'm curious as to the playstyle of maintaining that kind of DPG over multiple maps.
  13. I picked this up without trying the TD line , and..might have made a mistake. I honestly feel I've had some of the absolute worst teams I've ever seen in about 15/20 games on this, but I'm finding it almost impossible to really influence the outcome of a game. I don't have full camo crew yet, so seem to get spotted easier than I thought I would, don't have the speed to relocate (or rather, it seems to take forever to get up to speed) if the red team doesn't sit in front of me, and once I fire off a shot or two players seem to avoid the area. (Which is weird, because in my WZ 120TD they seem to take the 440 hit and keep coming) So far I'm really regretting this, otoh, I can really see how learning to play to this things strengths is going to teach me a lot about maps and positioning that I don't know or pay attention to.
  14. Hey all So sort of unemployed right now, and while I haven't been playing many games (obviously) looks like my old Graphics card just died. (enabling it or any drivers for it causes black screen I can't boot around, disabling it system works fine) Anyway I realize it's a very old card, but I'm wondering if anyone has suggestions for something comparable, but cheap. (I assume i can probably get a much better card for $200, but I can maybe afford to spend half that..) Just hoping some of you smart types might have some suggestions. Thanks!
  15. Stupid WG, the 215B is supposed to remain valued at 6.1 Million credits so I can get a new T10 and get 3 million credits. This might be the most outrageous thing you've ever done.

      I think the sale price is 10,000 credits.  I agree, complete BS.  Somewhere is the patch notes they talked about giving it a value of 5 Gold.

    2. RealBattousai

      RealBattousai

      yup in notes it said 5 gold, either way not selling it.

      Was the Foch 155 the same way?  Thats a pretty shit thing to do if so.  

  16. Yeah I was trying for MT 15.4, but after 100 games or so I've never seen enough TDs. (If I'm in a heavy or scout, TD's all over the place of course lol) Maybe I'll just see how difficult it is to do 5K with 155M HE spam.
  17. How the fuck do you do internal hits? Trying to unlock TD 15.4, the mission I'm missing is 2.4 do 5K damage and injure/destroy 3 crew/modules. I'm driving arund in a T100E4 (wiht a gun that with food,vents.BIA and a Gld still seems like the most inaccurate gun in the entire American line, including the 152 on the T49) and I have at least a dozen 5K games- and haven't managed to get more than 2. Just had back to back 5K games with zero crew injuries/module damage between them. Totally get that I'm having shit RNG, But is there a trick to this? I keep stupidly assuming putting multiple 155mm shots through turrets will break something, but apparently not.
  18. Is the Su-122-54 all that bad? It looks like a T9 version of the prem Chinese TD, (Except for that stupid 4 gun depression), and I really like the Wz-1201GFT, even in T10 games it's not terrible, and the Su looks like an upgraded version.
  19. So another question- when you play this solo (I have no mic at the moment, and no friends currently playing so I don't platoon) how do you decide on targets? I've managed to start stringing together more 2kish damage games than not, but I'm always trying to guess- of you have the choice between A) The side of a undamaged T28 Proto who's not even looking at you, or B) An E75 with 39HPs, which do you shoot? In my mediums I always remove guns from play (unless the game is over and all I can do is farm), but with these 20 second reload guns, I'm not sure. As I said, getting the damage up, but my WR is still bad in this, and I completely admit I'm not influencing games like I do in a med or heavy.
  20. Just came here to ask after watching Jingles video if there actually seemed to be more arty cover at some of the common brawling areas, and it seems there is. So that's a step in the right direction.
  21. Thinking of picking this up next time it goes on sale, (been a while I think, so hopefully November), in a Meta populated by Patriots/Obj 252's/Chrysler K's/Wz 111-1FTs/ and all the other newer premiums, is it still worth it for a slightly above average skilled player? Am looking forward to the new French HT line, so want to get a crew trainer, but I'm iffy (based solely on stats) of how this looks now.
  22. They had a third, plus my teal would have clashed with the dark purple.
  23. So decided to buy this tank back, first game run into Crab and Dual's platoon of T49 haxxors, (also realized when I retrained my commander, forgot to buy 6th..oops) defend mission on Siegfried. Half the team decides the best way to defend the base is to advance into South Field and camp. We lose, Dual kills me Second game back get shot by a friendly T49, who manages to set me on fire, and I die. I hate this tank.
  24. NA is having camo sale Oct 27-30, not sure if it'll be 50% or just 25% though..
  25. Looks interesting, but has like 1.5 second longer reload than the Wz for 50 less alpha, and it's traverse is far worse. Far better sniper, much worse at anything other than sniping.
