      Start with something you're less attached to, like a pet.

      I don't know. I think i'm more attached to my animals than I am to fellow man.

  3. Was an awesome carry ... 3 tanks carried the whole stinking team. 14 kills between the 3 of us but no medal I guess the Conq don't like medals.

  4. Anyone having problems with MOE? My T29 has not moved from a strict 83.00% for the last 10 or 15 games in a row. Something is fishy.

      ok ... wondering what the reasoning behind that is. 

  5. Top 5 questions for WG:

    1. When am I going to find out where the hell that shell went? (Ghost Shell)

    2. What the F#@* is a critical hit?

    3. Why do fully aimed guns shoot the dirt they weren't aiming at?

    4. When will we finally get rid of arty?

    5. When a Ferdinand shoots a cromwell and the shell bounces harmlessly to the side as if nothing happened WTF is the point of your overmatch mechanics?

      welp no streaming for me ... don't matter I suck and nobody watches my stream anyway

  7. Am I wrong for contemplating the removal of all people on my in game friends list for not wanting to toon ? Freaking freeloaders 

    1. Silentturtle130

      Silentturtle130

      If you are wanting to platoon and that is the purpose of your friend's list then why keep them on there?

      Why are they the "freeloaders"? 

    3. MrWickwire

      MrWickwire

      Delete them I shall ... muahahaha.

       

      They are freeloaders because raisins. That's why.

  8. Day of first. Played a game today and after the victory as I was admiring the stats. I noticed the super unicum from -G- on the opposite team did ZERO damage. I know we are all human but WOW. My only question is will he get put on probation or some form of punishment for tarnishing -G-'s reputation? Not sure how it works :P

      haha last clan I was in that did clan wars I got yelled at for doing zero damage and we were a middle of the road clan at best. :)

    This happened a couple days ago. These two consecutive games just about sent me through the roof when it happened. I had at least 4 or 5 consecutively damaged ammo racks across the time frame of 2 consecutive games. I don't know a lot about math but I'm pretty sure thats not supposed to happen if the coding, and RNG is correct especially when you have safe stowage already 100% on your crew skills. I know that i may be a bit biased since it happened to me but I wanted to get an unbiased outsider opinion. Preferably someone who has more knowledge than I do on this matter (Probably the whole community).  Thanks for your input in advance

      Safe Stowage increase the modul health of the ammo rack by a fixed percentage (12.5% if memory serves me right and they didn't change that)

      See here for how safe stowage (and module damage in general) works:

      Ok so it happens or can happen even more than I thought. I will keep this in mind .... still sucks and its annoying as hell. In the Action X this is my only real defense against Tier X threats is my DPM. Otherwise I am a heavy tank without any armor and a long reload.

  10. Found out how many tanks you have to kill to get an Ace Badge in the KV1. Carry harder noob

    You be the judge. I admit this felt like a shitty move to abandon that flank but I couldn't convince myself that we had enough people to cover it given the fact most of their heavies are bound to show up there. Was this the right call? Or am I a bluefalcon (buddy fucker)? I often question my actions when people on my team persist that I'm wrong. Either way it seem to work out so chalk up a victory.

  12. I woke up one day and felt free of the notion that I had to increase my WN8 and winrate enough to join a top clan. Suddenly it occurred to me it really aint that important. Like Zeven says ... "relax guys its just a game". Best damn advice I've had all 3 years I've played. Now I can play the game with a clear head ... ha

    This game is getting slammed big time OMG. I would not want to be Sean Murray right now

  14.  "Meet me in the training room and I'll show you I'm not the scrub your talking about."  

    In my opinion this does 3 things right away.

    1. It forces the person to make a decision to back up all the talk. Anyone can talk very few will back it up.

    2. It separates them from the crowd they are trying to impress. Unless they invite friends to watch and very few do.

    3. And finally it puts a very swift end to all the senseless side chat that otherwise pollutes the game messaging system and clears it up for a more mature and productive use. Like playing the game.

    I'm no superstar unicorn but I ain't no scrub either. I manage to be pretty descent on most nights and any differences I have with people are settled in the training room. I see no other way to end the talking.

      What I find is that most people never take me up on my offer in the first place. And its a quick way for me to respond to them and say training room or stop your talking. If they decline and keep talking then they obviously don't think I am half as bad at the game as they say I am. Honestly by that time I have nothing else to say to them unless they want to set up a match. Discussion over haha

      All a 1v1 does is show who positions better (i.e sits in an advantageous spot). Literally means nothing.

      Yea yea I get the point :P

  15. this looks promising

     

    1. Private_Miros

      Agreed. But 1 and 2 were promising too and ended up being absolutely horribad.

    2. MrWickwire

      MrWickwire

      Man I hope that doesn't happen. I saw 1 and 2 and didn't think they would amount to much so I never have bought a game from this franchise. This one looks different and open world I hope it turns out better than the first 2. 

  16. I need gold ... anyone got room for me on their team?

  17. If anyone needs a tanker for tournament I sure could use the gold. I am pretty not bad at this game .... I think :P

     

  18. Ping spiking to 800+ .. can't control my tank without a 10 second delay. Anyone else having this issue lately?

      That was awesome. Hey the one where you hit a cluster of enemy tanks for like 3552 DMG , was that clan wars also? I can't understand why anyone would cluster their tanks like that especially in clan wars ... or any team match up. Nice post man that one where you deflected like 3 shots from the 25/2 and then killed him was absolutely hilarious. The captions were priceless thank you that made my day. :P

      The CGC-shot was in a skirmish battle actually, basically both teams wanted to YOLO-rush the 1-line but the enemy stopped at the corner as soon as they saw our tanks.

      ahh i see ... good shot then. CGC OP

  20. What clan or clans have your utmost respect for their competitiveness , professionalism, and skill level in the game WoT?

    For me:

    1. M--M (of course)
    2. VPG
    3. SIMP (I've seen these guys do things in this game that make me redefine my idea of what "good" really is in this game)
    4. BULBA

    The list is not a hierarchy so please don't shoot the messenger I just wrote them down as I thought of them.

  23. Movie quote of the week:

    "I just think that in the nuclear world the true enemy can't be distroyed."

    (Confused looks from his Naval colleagues)

    Captain reaches for his fork.

    (Taps on wine glass) DING DING DING

    "Attention on deck Von Clauswitz will now tell us who the real enemy is."

    (snickering and laughter from his Naval brethren fills the room)

    Captain gestures to his XO with a smile. He smiles right back.

    "Von?"

    "In my humble oppinion. In the nuclear world the true enemy is war itself."

      Terribad? Not according to Rexxie ... plus i've already played it on the test server. It is a tank of my liking

      vents over optics ... ok ill try that

    3. Snoregasm2

      Snoregasm2

      Yeah, it's bad. Like really bad. Read all the recent posts in its topic.

      A classic example of a tank that has a variety of good stats on paper that do not work in practice.

      Gun dep but no turret.

      DPM but a worse ammo rack than Leo 1.

      Good accuracy but HORRENDOUS bloom vlaues so absolutely 0 snap shot ability.

      Huge hull with no armour.

      It's a horrible tank, and I hated grinding it to unlock the FV at tier 8. I too looked forward to getting it, and I was massively disappointed.

      Tier 10 medium play is about 1 of 3 things:

      • effective DPM;
      • survivability; and
      • snap shotting.

      The CAX has none of these.

      ^^ You'll see in pages 6 and 7 how people start to go off it once they play it a bit. Even Rexxie admits its not all it's cracked up to be.

      ahh ok gotcha ... ill take this into consideration. But its a little late now ive already spent the gold to get it.
