    IS-4 failed carry cause, reasons.

    http://wotreplays.eu/site/4269553#redshire-crapcannon-is-4 I think I made two mistakes I made at the end, 1. Lost sight of the Lorraine 2. Should have used APCR Thoughts?
  3. Can you return or exchange Gamestop WoT gift card? My wife got me one for fathers day but I don't play it anymore. Was wondering if I could exchange it for a Steam card for my son.

      How much is on it/value of the card?

      Not much. $25. Maybe I'll just hold on to it till my boys go back to college & HS.

    The return of Province

    First game of the patch I get this map & im in my Lowe. Tried to get down below to the opposite side. Got raped halfway. In short, if you’re in a slow tank, stay up top.
  5. Gonna throw this here for people that have actually played the tank. https://tanks.gg/tank/progetto-46 0.32 Dispersion, a bit quicker than a Mutz, decent gun depression, squishy turret, in fact almost no armor at all, & fancy autoreloading system. On sale here: https://na.wargaming.net/shop/wot/specials/6142/ Thoughts?

    Progetto M35 mod 46 Premium

    Just bought this tank. Optics/rammer/Vert?
  7. Tempted to buy the Progetto (as a birthday present) since it's on sale for 40% off with other goodies. But it's like a Mutz but with paper armour & a better gun. Yay or nay?

      TheMarine0341

      Take with a grain of salt, only 3 battles played. IMO its the most flexible of all tier 8 MTs, rivaling really only the Lorrain 40t

    2. Archaic_One

      Archaic_One

      I don't have one but I keep seeing them at the top of the damage results even when not top tier.  Looks like a winner.

      Bought it yesterday before I lost the sale. Have yet to play it. 

  8. When you win your first 2 games of the day, just walk away from the computer. Walk away. PS: fuck arty. It was the only way those fuckers could take me out.

    Progetto M35 mod 46 Premium

    Damn. My bad. Trash this plz. Edit: Actually nevermind. Keep this here for people that have actually played the tank. That whole thread is 6 pages full of missions & theory.
  10. Spaghetti with meat sauce for the Progresso tank!! LOOOL Sorry. I just found that to be funny as fuck.

    1. Action

      Action

      exactly my thought. A little bit too cliché :D but pizza would have been a little too unrealistic for the prosecco mario tank :S

      Also because most Italians don't eat  spaghetti with meatballs

    Object 430 Appreciation and Boasting Thread

    Do NOT ram anyone with this tank! Thought for sure I could finish off a Sheridan. Turns out I was the one that got finish off.

    SU-152 Fan Club

    This 152 is nothing but an exact clone of the premium 122S. I think I made a mistake going down this line...

    Obj 430U

    So after reading all this, get to the 430U as fast as possible. Got it.
  14. When platooning, is it better to all stay the same tank type? Or do you mix it up?

    1. Folterknecht

      Folterknecht

      Sure - tripple arti, scout or TD platoon (especially without turret) is they way to glory.

       

       

       

       

       

      For the enemy team

    2. Assassin7

      I play whatever when in a platoon. 

    3. Darvek

      Darvek

      If you're looking to platoon to boost your win rate, you should probably drive tanks that can play together. Scouts go with snipers, meds, or arty, but not so good with tanks that need to be in the heavy brawl. Some meds can play with the heavies, some heavies can play with the meds, but Leo 1 and Type 5 is probably not a combo that can play in the same part of the map. If you're platooning to just have some fun games with friends, then just don't pick particularly stupid combinations like Folterknecht said.

  15. Where can I find the updated WN8 values for the 430/430U? Thanks.

    1. Gr1nch_1

      Gr1nch_1

      I can tell you. Do alot of dmg for purple and less for other colors.

      In other news looking at colors to evaluate your per tank performance is meaningless.

      crapcannon

      lol thanks

    Glacier

    The middle is OP as fuck for tanks with excellent gun depression. But don't go alone with 2-3 arty.
  17. Once I hit 1600 I stopped. Although Personal Rating can get weird too.
  18. Only a few credits away from the Object 430. Vert/Vents/rammer? At 0.39 dispersion I don't see any reason to go optics.

      lol got it.

      Also, I just realized that Situational Awareness skill that my loader has is greyed out in my T-44/430 but if I put him my Rudy it is not. Bummer cause now I have to train the commander extra hard for recon/SA.

      I've noticed that about a few of the premiums.. the skills aren't always 100% the same, so if you choose a skill while in that prem there's a slight chance it won't match up with the tank they actually belong in.

      You just have to put them in the vehicle you want them in, and reset the skills. I would rather have the skill active in my tier 10 but not in the tier 6 trainer than the other way around..

    Steppes 1.0

    Yeah definitely more open space. But on certain maps like Fjords & Steppes I felt like I had more hull down spots than usual.
  20. Best tank to play IMO while learning these new maps, Lowe. Noticing most of these maps favor tanks with good gun depression. Might as well play a tank that shits credits while learning.

  21. crapcannon

    Steppes 1.0

    I've noticed that most of these new maps favor tanks with good gun depression. Played Steppes today. Got the south spawn. Abused the whole 1/2 line.
  22. Thoughts: Cent 7/1 or M46 Patton? Low DPM vs 0.37 accuracy

      Patton for far better gun handling.

    3. tajj7

      tajj7

      Patton, if the Cent 7/1 had a proper gold round it might edge it in the current meta, but both are praying to RNG when a Type 4 or 5 rumbles in., so you might as well have the one with better gun handling and DPM.

      Much appreciated guys. Will do both grinds.

    IS-M - Is Serb > Murazor?

    Is this one of those decent stronghold tanks? Cause I've got a great 5 skill crew for this tank.
  24. What tank do you use for ranked battles? Haven't done it yet but was thinking of using my IS-4 since it can take a beating. Was curious what you guys use.

      The IS-4 is too slow for the all important mop up damage at the end of games. I found the IS-7 was the way to go for ranks 1 - 8. I managed to only lose a single chevron over ~25ish games. Once you get over rank 8-10ish depending on your MM'g then you need to switch to meta tanks SConq/type 5 as stated above. Personally I worked out that the ~2k bonds that could be earned from getting to rank 8 in ~25ish battles was a far better investment in what is ultimately supposed to be my 'fun' time. But YMMV

      So you can change tanks? You don't have to stick with one particular tank the whole time?

       

    4. simba90

      simba90

      Correct, it is just like playing randoms. You select your T10 tank and play a game in that. if you die you can come back to garage and select another T10 tank. rinse. repeat. profit.

  25. Hooray. I'm officially a blue. Hooray. Now those with XVM can play 'wipe crapcannon off the map first....'

      At least on EU it seemed noone really changes the default XVM color scheme so it only matters whether you are old XVM blue or not and then the difference is HUGE, utterly HUGE. Just one more point from green to blue and suddenly you are prime target for 3-4 peeps on the enemy team... Stupid but that how it is.
