  1. Anyone know if cable back up? I want to know if I can play pubg FPP in Asia again.
  2. Apparently I can move my account from NA to SEA. Anyone done this before? Also what's the cable like at the moment?
  3. For sure it has but I bet even the guys who own WOT are probably sick of it. They like the money but sick of the community or more importantly sick of trying to second guess what the community will get the shits with. Incidentally I saw QB streaming pubg the other day. I think PUBG is the death of nearly all other genres of game. I am old by gaming standards and I love pubg more than I ever liked WOT. PUBG still lets me get excitement but I can take it at a slower pace. I was top 100 at OCE 3pp for a while when trying hard but eventually got sick of it and started dropping school and pochinki for the fun. I am closer to 50 than I am to 40 (years old) and if I can get top 100 then pubg is a game that lets even older people (WOT's traditionally big spending portion of the userbase) move away from this shitty tank sim.
  4. I stopped playing 6 months ago... I think, something like that. When I stopped I still had over 250 days premium time left. I thought it would hurt, that feeling like I am wasting money but it actually didn't I was so happy to be rid of this shitty game. WG are in end of life mode with this game.Squeezing every cent out of it while it is still a thing. Even the glorious Russian fan base is starting to move to (believe it or not) games like PUBG. I don't blame WG I would be doing the same thing if I owned this game. When I realised that fact it made quitting easier. I really don't want to be part of the decline of anything let alone a shitty online tank simulation. Look at twitch, even games like hearthstone destroy wot with viewership. Even QB is streaming other games more and more. Whether you like QB or not and I don't really like his style but think he is an ok guy. Anyway whether you like him or not he was always the biggest streamer of wot and now he is trying to diversify. I have watched pubg streamers get to 1000 concurrent viewers in a month yet wot streamers like mountain man are happy to get 300 viewers after years of streaming. The WOT reddit sub has only 35k subscribers after 5 years or so, the PUBG sub has 300k after 6 months (if that). The game is a dying beast and that is all there is to it. It was mostly fun for the first 2 years I played it but the last year it was just disheartening watching WG make one shitty move after another. Like I said I don't blame WG. The goose that is laying those golden eggs is a granny now, so they need to get as much for the eggs as possible before the granny dies.
  5. Welcome to wotlabs. It is just a reflection of the WOT in general. Toxic game toxic community. It all comes from WG being toxic to start with. WG is like that hard bit at the bottom of a pimple that makes all the puss. Thank fuck I have finally kicked this shitty addiction. Thanks you PUBG thank you!
  6. This is the first game that has kept me away from tanks for a long period of time. I love t but holy hell I suck at it. The whole gear collection aspect is fun, the dying as soon I run into someone is not
  7. Only tier 9 tank I 3 marked and this was before buff. I love this thing now it is even better. Only thing is I have quit this game for a while. But that PTA could get me back! As an aside PUBG is awesome!
  8. I came back to play some of this patch to see what it was like and I am finding tier 9 even more sweet than before. With MM ramming a big piece of splintery wood up tier 8 asses and MM having a hardon for all tier 10 games I am finding my tier 9's are top tier a lot and when they are not they have lots of tier 8's to farm anyway. Anyone else finding this?
  9. Oh man and I just removed WOT from computer again. I should re-install just for this competition Yo. Just in case I will leave this here
  10. Ack I guess tier 9/10 are the place to be these days.
  11. I read a post on reddit about wn8 averaging across all the same type in a tier. Ie all tier 9 light tanks will have the 1 value. Is this true and can it be applied to WN9 instead? I think the opportunity to pad is going to go through the roof. I do get why they are doing it though, the changing values on tanks with all the tank reshuffling going on must be a lot of work for very little joy.
  12. you are right tier 8 is in a bad a place with this new MM. I got only 17% tier 8 games in my tier 8's over 70 games. So bad. I am staying away from them.
  13. As someone who has had to use RNG a lot in professional life I think you are spot on with this. Very rarely will any programmer on the fly (during the game). It would cause unnecessary load. But whether the numbers are generated at the start of a game even when the server boots or they are generated on the fly they are still randomish...
  14. Are you platooning? Isn't there something in MM now that says platoons are always bottom tier or something? I could be wrong I just read it in passing somewhere.
  15. I have played for the first time in 2 months because I wanted to see what the patch was like. I agree with Marine on everything. I am having a ball in my RU251, T54LT not so much. I really like the new MM although it does go full retard occasionally but it is definitely better than before. What I really like as a solo only player is that Platoons don't seem to have as much of a dominating role as they used to. Most platoons are bottom tier and that suits me just fine. So nyeh to you platoon WR paddererers nyeh . The map rotation seems to be better than before but I have had some himmelsdorf/winter himels/karkov/stalingrad rotations which haven't been fun in my little RU. Overall this patch seems good and I don't really care about the tier 10 lights as I doubt I will play enough to grind them out anyway. I did have a circle duel with the german tier 10 light in my RU and easily deleted him. but I can already feel my interest waning. This patch hasn't been enough to make me start playing obsessively again. Which is a shame as I was hoping it would. I guess that directly relates to how bad the tier 10 lights seem. If they were good I know I would try to grind out 1 or 2. Oh well.
