  1. So NA and EU have a new bond-earning event starting this weekend. You can earn 250 bonds per day if you play for an hour or so. This will be interesting.

      First stage is just a grindfest to determine how long the second stage lasts, iirc.  There's probably some system set up for "X bonds per Y damage, kills, or wins" or whatever and they'll keep a counter on the WoT homepage.

      I've only got 2 pieces haswell. Some folks who did lots of ranked have 4-5.

      This is the event to help people get the cw tank. Would be interesting if payouts came after the the final day to buy the tank.

  2. Purchased:
    'Object 430' successfully purchased. Spent credits:  4,270,000.

    First RU med, in time for the patch.

      an interesting discovery today, according to the 9.22 preview on the WoT website the 430U is set to release with 9.22

      but on the 9.22 preview video on YT, they say the 430U is still in development and wont be releasing with 9.22

      @Deus__Ex__Machina Nah, they said the new tier X that follows from the Obj 430 II with a rear-mounted turret is still in development. That sentence is followed by "...Its gameplay will be similar to the Obj 416 and Obj 430 II." This we already knew.

      oh good i would've been a little sad if I didn't get my better Chinese med this patch

  3. This was my first game, so no doubt the sample size will betray me. But the gun is really good, and I have the feeling that this will be a pleasant set of On Track missions.
  4. I played this tank a while ago, so my impressions aren't fully up to date, but to me this was probably the most fun tier 7 medium. My default plan was to find somewhere I could plant the front of my vehicle against a barrier, then shoot things from that position as much as possible. It worked pretty well at the time, and I way overperformed in this vehicle over the course of 149 booster-free battles. I wouldn't recommend skipping this tank.
  5. What are y'all's current preferences: T-62A or Obj 140?

      @Kolni mobility wise they are the same with the 62a being able to go faster on medium terrains when going uphill. Downhill/flat terrain ofc 140 wins because of higher top speed. I noticed this when playing the 62a in SHs on maps like Karelia. This is thx to Russian hidden stats.

      top speed > hp/ton

      It's not even that 140 has more hp/t it's the terrain stats. What i meant though is that the difference is negligible. The 140 gets from  point A to B just a few seconds earlier. But all the differences you have mentioned before are there and those are the important ones.

  6. It finally happened to me: I logged into the LATAM Test server instead of USC and didn't notice for most of an hour. Why is everyone Brazilian? Why do I have 200ms ping?

  7. This was a good holiday season for WoT NA. So many bonuses and discounts and overlapping On Track missions. So far I've picked up the Maus, Pz 7, Emil II, AMX 50 120, AMX M4 51, T54E1, WZ-132, and MT-25. Thanks to the credit bonuses, I might yet be able to buy a few more of the tanks I have lying around unlocked but not purchased. 

  8. Swedish TDs seem to have inferior accuracy on all the odd-numbered tiers. The UDES gets 0.34/0.24 accuracy and the Strv 103-0 gets 0.39/0.29. Then the Strv 103B gets 0.29/0.24 accuracy and no rotation bloom to speak of.
  9. I think I noticed the difference in hull rotation speed (it's about 3 degrees/second on good terrain). It also gives you +100 module health and -8% fire chance. You can totally skip it, though.
  10. The 65t does in fact use the top engine. It's the top engine on the M4 45 and 50 100 and the second of three engines on the 65t and M4 51.
  11. Sounds like it needs an Appreciation thread.
  12. Don't buy the Logitech G603 mouse. Its scroll wheel barely works and it has no software interface. 

  13. You're making me miss this vehicle again. It's one of the most fun tier 5s.
  14. I game on Windows 8, whose store doesn't get Blitz. And I totally missed that Blitz had come to the Steam store. This thread may have given me a new low effort game.

    Yeah, the cupolas got a fair bit shorter and shaped so they fade into the turret better. The part of the turret face that has the best armor value has been enlarged to cover more area, and the rounding on the turret cheeks might have gotten better? So overall the turret is tougher but not hugely. The engine deck got a 10mm buff. The turret roof is still 40mm. The turret ring got shorter. It also got a little worse in a couple places. The LFP lost about 1 degree of slope, and the strip of weak side armor (60mm with no slope) behind and above the tracks got taller while the stronger armor (90mm sloped) above it got shorter.
