  1. Researched: IS-7 researched. Undistributed experience spent: 189200. Free Experience spent: 0.

    And i'm ready for the update. Pass on the TD's, fuck that line and i'm tired of speed grinding.

  2. Hmm, possible to get the Missouri before it goes away by converting xp? expensive yes, but I don't really mind. Keep in mind i'm a total noob and would likely grind it using Giulio Cesare and possibly Tirpitz.

  3. What's a decent/easy WoWs prem? Looking for something american or German preferably thats pretty easy to play as i am nub. Friend invited me back so once i get to tier 6 I get a free Texas but wondering if there's any other decent options.

      Of what seems to currently be available for purchase in game to me; Mutsu, Molotov, Warspite, De Grasse, and Giulio Cesare would be my first recommendations on things to look at for a mid tier premium.

      Awesome, thanks. Probably going to avoid destroyers as I just seem to die quickly in them in the lower tier ones.

      Giulio Cesare is very fun to play, damn near idiot proof, but obviously it's in the Italian line that is just creeping forward in the future.  The beauty of the tier 5 GC is that it is capable enough to survive in a tier 7 match - the 4 tier 6's listed by TFT are all good at tier 6/7, but suffer when in tier 8 MM.

  4. Fuck arty. One of the first top tier games i've had all night while grinding credits. T26E5 on Failinovka, north spawn 3/5/7. I get up to the hill, get penned by fucking everything and get artied to shit the whole time. BALANCE DA

  5. Buy the 4503 on sale or get the Lowe back through support? Suppose i could always do both.

    1. DirtyACE7

      DirtyACE7

      Get the Lowe back and fuck the 4503. It's just average trash.

    2. mostlyhybrid

      mostlyhybrid

      it's also hideously overpriced for a meh T7 premium

      Works for me.

  6. Why are the 416 and 430 II guns so derpy? The 416 felt like it missed easy shots and same thing on the 430 II.

      better accuracy and RoF vs higher AP pen? on a tank that spams HEAT anyway......

      :megadoge:

      I was recently having a conversation about which gun to use on the 430v2. The stock gun is better if you are spamming heat, which I hate doing because of cost. On the other hand does +19mm pen on the base round justify the slightly worse reload and gun handling? I'm on the fence. 

    4. skyf24

      skyf24

      stock gun. will +18 pen make a difference? maybe on the occasional -25% rng roll, otherwise nah. It's just so incredibly infuriating to have such poor base pen, meh alpha, and then such an expensive AP round. FFS my revalorise has 1 less pen and 70 more damage for half the price.

       

  7. Sold: 'Object 416' successfully sold. Received credits:  1,344,740. Spent gold:  20. 

     

    Good riddance.

      Yeah I kind of hated that tank too. Had some good games but too many very average because it was so awkward to play.

      Also, this was my best game in it. http://wotreplays.eu/site/4093195#stats

      Edited cause it had the previous post as well.

      I kept mine when I got the Obj 430 II. Really like the invisible pancake.

  8. Plus side: I got a T26E5 from the NY boxes. Downside: Tier 8 MM still fucking blows.

  9. Operation: Grind like mad for the Obj 430 before the patch is a go. Once I get past the A-44 it should be pretty easy... I hope.

      You might get a double refund on the su-122-54 if you have the su-122-54 and 263 in your garage.

      Ok, I'd like to thank the folks who recommended the 416/430 II. The 416 was meh for me. I don't think I'm playing it quite right, but I had some good game. First game in the 430 II though got a triple double: 2k damage, 2k spotted, 2k blocked. It has armor! I'm so happy.

  10. jesus fucking christ, arty is just as bad as it always has been. the aim times shouldve been left the same, fucking bullshit

    1. waga100

      waga100

      moving is basically irrelevant now at least you don't get 1 shot i guess

  11. FFS why does the Skorpion have a smuch hp as the T28 prot? I can haz Ferdinand hp pls?

    1. FavreFan4ever

      FavreFan4ever

      SU-100M1, AMX Canon 105, and AMX AC48 would kill for 1150hp.

    2. skyf24

      skyf24

      My issue with the Prot is that it's meant to basically be a heavy td, similar to T28/T95, and it has neither the armor nor hp to do that.

  12.  the Pz7 worth getting through the uselessness of the VKB? Such a shit tank. Two frontal fires in a row. gun is meh, handling blows. Everyone loads gold when they see you. this fucking game.

      Im about 93k away. Was trying to grind it last night but my toon mate told me to switch tanks before my head exploded from how pissed i was getting. It's just mediocre

    3. hazzgar

      The biggest problem is the tank ha no leverage over other tanks. Most tanks have either armor, alpha, gun handling, camo. The only thing here is alpha but more and more t9 heavies have 490, armor is unreliable, it's slow and the gun handling is bad. The only way to play it is go full APCR so the shell speed offsets the gun handling

    4. skyf24

      skyf24

      The extra alpha isnt worth it over the assorted gun handling benefits the 400 alpha tanks get. The M4 51 and M103 are so much better in every way, and I havent even played the Conqueror.

  13. Ugh, is it worth to free xp past churchill VII? I'd rather not but it's so bad, and thats not even factoring in the MM.

    1. Sibbys

      Sibbys

      I didn't have a problem with the church 7 at t6 (wayyyyy back), I'd save the xp to skip the BP.

    2. DirtyACE7

      DirtyACE7

      I have free XPed past most of Church VII and all of Black Prince. After about a dozen games in Church VII I was ready to throw my computer out the window. Then I also remembered that a game is not supposed to make you feel like you want to commit genocide so now I tend to free xp past just about any tank that makes me miserable. Funny enough though I did not free xp past the Caenarvon which I actually enjoyed playing. However, Church VII and Black Prince are just vile garbage in my opinion.

    3. skyf24

      skyf24

      The BP looks pretty lame. I think I could stomache most of the Church VII except the gun depression. why is it so bad, like holy shit. 

  14. Is there any difference between the assorted gift boxes? Chinese new year, soviet, etc.

    1. TAdoo87

      TAdoo87

      They give decorations for the specific group, but other than that they are equal afaik. The bonuses are a bit complicated, but the more decoration you have for a group the better the bonus is for xp and credits.

    2. skyf24

      skyf24

      Alright, thanks. Debating if the 75 box one would be a decent idea. Don't play much anymore though.

  15. ....why the fuck does the churchill 7 have -4 gun depression....

    1. sahtila

      sahtila

      To make you suffer more. Black Prince fixes it, big upgrade.

  16. holy shit the t28 proto and TVP VTU can die in a fire.

    1. Errants

      Errants

      Proto wasn't bad, good intro to the T30 and E4 Heavy/TD hybrid.

    2. Grister

      Grister

      T28 prot can be pretty dank as the gun is fantastic and the armor can be workable. TVP is hell incarnate though. 

    3. skyf24

      skyf24

      the prots front hull armor is great. turret is decent if enemies dont know where to aim/rng decides to help you. gun is pretty nice, but holy crap its so slow. and for what? anything that isnt tier 8 just loads gold or flanks you, and because of the 50mm side armor, its utterly useless. how was this thing playable before the buff?

  17. defender worth getting? considering it but not sure if i wanna drop 50$ on it

      it honestly was, foods pretty good

  20. WTF is required to 3 mark the trash 62? Had 90% but maps threw me down, for a tank with only 600~ avg damage it shouldnt be this fucking hard

  21. Holy shit fuck this game. M103 M58 round into a 113s cupola, no damage. all my shots barely miss. the prior a game a death star one shot me when i wasnt even lit. so much balance

  22. got the 2nd mark on the Type 62. Gaining 5-6% in single battles per day is super hilarious because of the rental tards who play a shit tier 7 light.

  23. Got banned for TKing a 261 who shit talked the whole game. Felt good.

  24. Can i get a refund on my t-34-3 and raviolli since WG made a prem thats a billion times better called the skorpion. really cant see the point of the former 2 anymore

      @Rexxie ah, icic, I thought you were saying is-5 gun > t-34-3, (cuz in context all i said was is-5 gun is trash, and you said  yea that's not gunna happen.. which i had no idea what you were talking about) which imo fuck the is-5 gun. just based on personal experience and rng =( my is-5 and me had no bueno experiences

      I perfectly am fine with my shitty 175 AP pen, 250 Heat pen, and lol amounts of shitty rng gun handling, because it fits whole platform... which is a mediocre platform, but quite endearing....

      the is-5 however... to me is quite the pos

    3. HemanathanRX7

      HemanathanRX7

      i hate is-5 and do not play it either in pubs or strongholds lmao. Rather play m41 GFFF

    4. An_Arty_Player_Hits_You

      An_Arty_Player_Hits_You

      I dont play mine in pubs any more, but I still do for strongholds b/c... its still an IS-series tank and makes the dank creds, esp when the enemy tanks aren't shooting at you and you can farm in the brawls =3

  25. is the 75000 xp for the gamescom missions a typo? Pretty shit payout for 22500 experience done in 4 days, even with the x5s
