  1. Full tier 10 games in Malinovka with 3 arties per side is so stupid that from now on just better do some "active scouting" from the beginning to stop wasting time.

  2. Remove ingame XVM. Reduce arty splash radius. Make arty visible in minimap after firing for one second so they have to relocate even a bit. Prohibit arty shooting tanks less than 100 meters away. Remove all japanese heavies. Remove good map positions to camp behind own cap circle. Reduce turret armor in a lot of tanks. Remove unpenetrable cupolas. Rework gold ammo. Introduce 20 tier MM and rebalance all tanks to that.
  3. This used to be one of my favorite tanks and I had only slight trouble with the gun as I had a good crew with it. Now somehow every time I play it feels really mediocre. Tier8 powercreep / light tank MM changes have affected it probably quite a lot.
  4. As a general economics rule for myself in wot is that I never buy anything with credits if it´s not on sale. I have enough tanks already that I can run them as long as I want and that gives me time to wait on sales on tanks equipment and consumables and stock up when that happens, like this weekend on EU. I also fire very little premium ammo because the costs are often prohibitive since I don´t buy premium time at all. Sure sometimes you don´t pen because of that and RNG rolls screw you over even more but that is a price to pay. I got three tier8 premiums that were marathon events, IS-6, WZ-111 and FV4202. If I need credits they can make a basic profit pretty easily without premium account, WZ-111 being the most fun of these three in the current game meta. To the question: Without constant gold-spam one can get by with T71, T29, T20, T-34-1 and of course derps. Tier8 is garbage but IS-3 (russiaaa..) and everything german that can mount the 128mm should be fine. Tier9 I have found that a lot of the NATO mediums have 105mm with 250ish pen and especially Jagdtiger to never need gold.
  5. But where are the black versions?
  6. Only viable tiers to play at the moment are 9 & 10 in my opinion due to 3/5/7 MM. When your top tiers fail you can at least be one of them fails and blame yourself or have a chance of still impacting the game as a viable tier9. Even tier7s seem to be so much weaker than tier8 tanks that you have a serious problems fighting them. And tier8 itself is broken. Not much to choose from anymore is there?

      I would add Tier 7 as well.

      9, 10, pref 8. I don't want to touch reg 8s. 

      Tier 7 is okay from the few games i've played, but tier 6 just gets all the pref 8 games. 

  7. Superheavies got buffed. French TDs got buffed. Skorpion G got introduced as OP premium TD. Death Star is going to get removed so everybody is grinding that line too. That is why there are so many superheavies and TDs now.
  8. Armor is probably now strongest it has ever been in the game and being well-armored suits most the maps very well. Also armor helps against arty somewhat. Very strong turrets are getting very strong gun depression. Arty has too large splash area and does too much critical damage. Dodging arty is very difficult even with fast tanks because splash and improved accuracy and RoF. Light tanks are meh especially because armor is king in maps and arty splash fucks lights up so badly because splash and crits. Also personal missions changes are making people play A LOT of arty to get their orders to unlock rewards easier.
  9. Everybody who cries about Tiger P should play this tank today in the current meta. This is SO bad. Also to make things even better you can´t mount top engine or top gun without tracks and you can´t mount suspension module either. Like WTF?
  10. I think today there is a lot worse teams than last weekend for that matter.
  11. All in all WG has made these "reward" vehicles, except the objekt 260 dubious in many ways. T28HTC for example, besides other shortcomings of the entire platform (even arty really shits on you because most of top is only 25mm), T28HTC ammo is 1000 credits a piece too.. for 181 pen and 320 alpha. One positive fact is that you can trade these in if you wish however you have to spend again more gold to get a proper premium tank so WG wins anyways.
  12. SirFoch has a video of him running out of ammo in T-55A and losing the game due to that little problem.
  13. It eats your credits due to its expensive ammo / dmg output and tier9 repair costs.
  14. Just had a full tier 8 game in Murovanka. Total loss in many ways. Got 10 shots out with FV4202, 5 hit, ONE penetrated. ONE and only full tier 8 game. And this tank should have 226 AP pen. It was all miss this, critical hit that. So frustrating. And this was not the first time of just not being able to penetrate things eventhough you have good pen on paper. I remember a game a while back with 25 shots, 17 hits and 5 pens. Must be something to do with this total derpiness of the gun. The turret and mobility buffs are OK and you can feel them but the gun just makes u wanna throw your keyboard out of the window.
  15. After 3/5/7 fun to see winrate dropping like a stone but now WN8 massive increase. Nice job XVM you really showed wotlabs-stetpedders how it is done right!

      Just the point being that when all my other stats are relatively the same in noobmeter curves or dropping like win rate, the WN8 curve just yesterday made a noticeable jump of 80points probably because XVM taking over WN8 and making "corrections" to it. It looks very funny to me considering all aspects and the discussion how wotlabs handled the code "wrongly". I have become accustomed when WN8 goes up WR goes up and vice versa. Now for me it just doesn´t seem to correlate anymore. :)

      There are probably other reasons than just the MM change in my declining win rate too like not playing lower tiers anymore and not platooning almost at all for the last thousand games.

      So what you are saying is that the damage you do is not useful for winning the game... That seems like an issue indeed.

      Epic have you visited to check your stats and curves in noobmeter lately? Do they all still correlate or is there lately mysterious WN8 increases that you seem have nothing to do with?
