  1. WN8 ..... those who have it say you don't need it. And those who don't have it say they want more of it. You have to have WN8 to think like that in the first damn place.


    1. Haswell


      I don't need WN8 or any other epeen measuring system because I don't play.

    2. BadLuckCharm


      When performance metrics are used for epeen, they're more corrosive than the harshest acid. When they are used for self-improvement (like they're supposed to) they're fine, and actually useful.

      Same damn thing, it's how it's used that makes it good or bad. Like most anything, really.

    Stream settings

    If someone could be so kind as to meet up with me later tonight or another day to iron out my streaming probs. In a nutshell I have OBS setup to stream 720p at 4.5k bitrate. The problem is my stream seems to fluctuate anywhere from low 500s to about 4.2k bitrate. This then leads to my stream cutting out for the viewers. I'm hoping this is a setting issue and not an ISP issue. I have comcast and usually my ping is anywhere between 40 to 60. I'd have to update this post later with upload and download speeds because I'm at work right now. But last I checked they are more than adequate for streaming. Thank you so much to anyone who can and will help me with this issue I plan to repay you for your time for going out of your way to help me with this problem.

  7. How do i delete my attachments?

    1. Tarski


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

    2. simba90


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

    Counq fail carry

    I'm no expert at this game but this is what I see if you just want to know how you could have handled it differently. First the good stuff: 1. You paid attention to you mini map for the most part. 2. You traded damage some what effectively (I'll explain this in a bit) 3. You used your armor effectively overall Now the bad stuff: (well not too bad) 1. You did a great job killing the threat at your base but then you take the long way back to help your friends who were dying trying to cap the enemy base. 2. Not only did you take the long way you didn't analyze your mini map enough. If you had you would have realized that the remaining tanks on the enemy team were 1 Heavy tank (that was 2 tiers below you) 3 Nasty TDs and artillery. They all spell disaster for you when you are not protected by the confines of the city. Mostly because TDs have awesome Camo so it would be hard for you to spot them with your terrible view range. And further more even if you did manage to spot them and get off a snap shot for damage artillery is going to hammer you in the open. In short you should have taken the city route. Instead you tried to kill an IS2 in the open and got hit by a T30 and arty hammered you for even more damage. By the time you got back into the city again where you should have been you were pretty much a one shot for the T30. 3. You did trade damage effectively but if I had any recommendations for you it would be to take a deep breath, calm down , and try to be a little more smooth with your side scraping and poking out to take a shot. You were real jumpy and it cost you some shots not to mention some health at times if I remember correctly. All in all you did a good job but a little more analyzing the mini map to take the safest route and taking your time to not be so jumpy would go a long way for you. I'd say you did a good job all things considered but hey I'm not the best at this game I'm sure others may have better advice for you.

    M41 90G Carry 2.5k DMG 5 Kills

    Basically 3 tanks carried the whole team. We had 14 kills between the 3 of us but the Conq didn't want the medal I guess. Oh well let me know what you think criticism is welcome. Replay
  10. 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.



  11. 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.

    1. DHP


      Moe have been deactivated for NA, perhaps for EU aswell.

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

  12. 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?

    1. TAdoo87


      This was a critical hit:

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

  14. 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


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

    2. BiggieD61


      Why are they the "freeloaders"? 

    3. MrWickwire


      Delete them I shall ... muahahaha.


      They are freeloaders because raisins. That's why.

  15. 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

      Shit i do 0 damage in clan wars sometimes and i don't get kicked. It's just pubs.

    4. MrWickwire


      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)

    3. StranaMechty


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


    4. MrWickwire


      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.

    Ghost Shells are back?!

    haha ... talk about pissing an already frustrated World of Tanks player off even more. I know I have seen this many times but thought maybe I was alone on this island. So good to finally find others who are suffering with me. Is that sadistic to feel that way?
  18. MrWickwire

    Ghost Shells are back?!

    I take it Ghost Shells are the ones you shoot and your like "where the F$%^ did that shot just go?

    WONKA is issuing Golden Tickets

    If you turn your head side ways and squint your eyes .. my stats are tealish or purple depending on what drugs you prefer. I play tanks just as good as anyone who is teal or purple though that you can take to the bank
  20. 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.

  22. 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

      Feels good eh?

      Hell yeah it does

  24.  "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

    3. Fulcrous


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

    4. MrWickwire


      Yea yea I get the point :P

  25. this looks promising


    1. Private_Miros


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

    2. 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.
