  1. Lazy question: was there a recent change to a few height maps? Arctic Region seems pretty different from how I remember it, even post-HD update. 

  2. I come back to the game and they've updated the maps. Anyone have some new favorite spots?
  3. After 2 months of no games, my new gaming computer is here. Old WoT on a lousy GPU --> new WoT on a good GPU is a huge change. Everything is so pretty!

      ongrats, now u can enjoy improved graphics and demolition :D

  4. My laptop finally died after 6 years. I ordered a replacement with infinitely better hardware. Soon I can be bad at much prettier tanks!

    Now to replace my dead mouse, too.

      What'd you get? I've still been neglecting to pick up something for myself...

      I wanted to stick with a laptop, since I'm so used to the form factor. I went for a Clevo P650HS-G with a GTX 1070. Then today I ordered a Logitech G900 mouse from Amazon. My last attempt at replacing my mouse failed (a Logitech G603 whose scroll wheel only actually scrolled 2/3 of the time out of the box), but Amazon made the return process so easy I'm happy to undergo another round of trial and error.

      just an FYI the G9XX mice have swappable shells if they aren't a great fit

  5. WG talked about this somewhere. There will be a legacy vehicle in your player history that is not actually a playable vehicle in the game, the tier 10 Obj 430 that currently exists. Your stats in the 430 will still show up as tier 10 430 stats, even though no such vehicle can be played after the patch.
  6. That feeling when you take out the 183 for some fun and get knocked out by a 500m shot by a 4005 right at the start.

      Poetic justice just got a new definition. Still see so many 183s. Not so many Foch’s, though, new or old model.

      FV4005 is pretty common these days, I dunno why.

      One reaps what one sows. 

  7. An ally just killed an enemy by ricocheting a shell off my tank. Color me impressed.

      so uh... video? gif? replay file, even?

    3. Tarski


      Since my computer isn't up to the task of making videos or gifs, and since replays from previous patches are a hassle to play, I don't keep replays. What am I, a T49 driver?

    Do you EVEN 90?

    If I'm reading those stats correctly, it has DPM that belongs halfway between tier 1 and tier 2, hitpoints that would be pretty good at tier 7, and worst in class+tier aim time, armor, gun elevation (it sometimes matters!) and view range (tied). Also bad shell velocity and power:weight. And mediocre accuracy. They could give it several small buffs and it would be a hilarious gimmick tank for when you want to roleplay a mosquito.
  9. 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.

    3. CraBeatOff


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

    4. hiipanda


      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.

  10. 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

    3. Tarski


      @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. 

    4. PlanetaryGenocide


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

    AMX 50 120

    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.

    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.
  13. 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.

    3. Kolni


      top speed > hp/ton

    4. nabucodonsor


      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.

  14. 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?

  15. 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.
