  1. Has anyone got tips pm how to play Fisherman's Bay? I always struggle on it and never know what to do. I generally camp mid but most of the time feels like I am doing nothing.

  2. Dadada komrad. Tvp vtu good Defender counter Leo good Type 5 counter.
  3. https://worldoftanks.eu/en/news/general-news/preferential-matchmaking-fixes/ According to WG they realized they were making a mistake by trying to change the pref MM tanks to regular premium tanks. So preferential MM will be kept but those tanks will be buffed to fit better the meta. (Lol FCM mobility and Type 59 buffs) Also they are studying a new algorithm to fix the MM: "In its current state, the matchmaker often fails to ensure proper rotation between the top/middle/bottom of the list. Getting matched at the same position for several battles in a row slows down progression and degrades the overall experience for absolutely all vehicles. Unfortunately, simply tweaking the current algorithm won’t fix it. We tried to artificially lower the probability of getting preferential Premiums in +1 Tier and same-tier battles. However, this created more problems by increasing the number of single-tier battles and waiting times for not only Tier VIII and IX but tanks tiered VI-X. So we’re looking into redesigning the underlying matchmaker rules to improve 3/5/7, 10/5, and 15 template distribution. This will aim to prevent cases of spending 80% of in-game time in 3/5/7 battles at the bottom of the list. As you can understand, to find the optimal solution will take some time (about half a year) and we ask for your patience. We have already laid down a plan and work on the matchmaker is underway. We will give more information when we have it in a separate article, so keep an eye out." Let's see how they will fuck this up.

    Help me pimp out Obj. 430u

    You got the crew skills wrong. Repairs>anything else as a) the 430U is a brawler and B) aside from camo/bia/view range skills most skills just give you a small boost. Unless you play with LTs or tier 6 meds never train camo over repairs. That being said I train even perks directly as I dont feel like it is worth it wasting the 20k for retraining. But that is just me as I am lazy. About the drive go with off road>clutch breaking. Because you have very good camo with optics you will outspot any medium running optics (ofc if he isnt behind a bush ect) but vents helps too because it improves your handling, accuracy and shortens your reload, all things the 430 needs. It is up to you and your playstyle, but the already fantastic camo should allow you to outspot any heavy and any medium without optics. So try both but I'd go with vents. 430U has more camo and all the russian mediums outspot the M48 due to their fantastic camo.

    Help me pimp out Super Conqueror

    View range on heavies is very good as you can spot a lot when in a frontline hulldown position. So recon>>>joat and you could even switch vents with optics as the rof and aim time on the sconq is already enough even to permatrack heavies. For directives go FF so that you can use food. 2 bonds per game are nothing as you should still make more bonds than you use
  6. So WG is now testing the Polish tanks trying to milk their Polish player base, with a 750 alpha 2,6kHP and 2,4k dpm!!! (which was nerfed from the previous 2,5k same as the E5...as if 100dpm matters). Dispersion is not that bad (look at the turret rotation 0,096 on a 152mm gun) and with 8 degrees of gun depression it should comfortable enough. Practically a E100 with a turret that does not seem to be 2-2 pen. The crap part of it is the terrible 317 HEAT pen and bad power to weight, but good news it gets 1,1k HE dmg. Just like the old tds. Which means you can spam it and get 400-500 dmg if you are lucky enough. The armour looks strong but there is maybe a weakspot as it has a central view port, probably to allow Russian player to remind Polish players that Poland is just Russia's garden. https://thearmoredpatrol.com/2018/06/22/supertest-60tp-lewandowskiego-updated-stats/#more-64620 Thoughts?
  7. So 7k spotting to WG is only worth 1 gallon. Nice

      If people weren't shooting at spotted tanks then we would not have a game where you goal is to shoot at other tanks. 

      I was the one who took a risk for my team by spotting for people who just had to aim their cursor from a safe position. It was because of my efforts that they could shoot at those tanks, I gave them the possibility to do so. They just had to take advantage of my work.

      I cant control what my team does, but if they are too stupid to shoot a red tanks they should play at something else. As I said before I was the one who won the game.

      What I am trying to say is that if LTs are designed to spot so they should recieve a exp bonus for doing their job.

      it's really as simple as you scratch their back and they scratch yours

      you didn't win the game, the team did? if you spot shit no one can shoot then that spotting is absolutely worthless outside of the information that they are there? you need teammates to shoot what you spot so no, without dealing direct damage from a standpoint of outmacro-ing both your teammates and enemies along with micro to keep your damage up then you didn't solo win the game at all. 

      if you'd get bonus xp for doing things the tanks are already good at then you'd break xp beyond repair, it'd be the equivalent of 268v4'ing the XP formula

      Fair enough you have a point. 

  8. So apparently even arty CAN outspot you when it hides in the bushes in the NE and SW corners of Province.

    Either the developers are mentally challanged or are sadist. I dont understand how that map managed to get in the game.

    1. OperatorError

      OperatorError

      I played a game on Erlenberg in a T71 - in the end game I spotted deep into the North-East corner of the map. Bushed up, unspotted, and took some shots at some kemping TD. Then I got full-penned by an M44 that was exactly 52 meters away from me, invisible...

      This game is broken trash. I can't believe that WG fucked over the entire concept of a light tank so soon after introducing T10 lights. 

    2. nabucodonsor

      nabucodonsor

      Yeah this is ridicule. There is no way arty should remain unspotted in any situation.

  9. 30b is not worth the grind I suppose?

      I love LTs and I am telling you Pilsen and Stalingrad are way better than most of the maps we have now even for Lights. At least on Stalingrad I could flank and on Pilsen I could fuck off and try do somenthing.

If they had left the game as it was in 0.8.6 or even 0.9.3 this game would have been still great. Idiots. Oh and #fuckMurazor
  12. Anyone excited for the new season of ranked that happens in August when people are on holidays kappa?

    Cant wait to see Bobjects vs Types aka Stalin vs Gojira. Uh it sounds like a horrible B-movie. 

    The hilarious thing is that WG still advertises it as a skill based mode where you fight the best players. Welcome to the skill meta!

      And to think that on blitz they made the tumor smaller yet strong (like on the t32).

      I'll never understand why they dont make the same changes for PC. Hell even the Leo has 0.1 dispersion on traverse and hull rotation instead of the abysmal 0.17 it gets on PC.

       

    3. TAdoo87

      TAdoo87

      @nabucodonsor blitz is a relatively new game I guess there are a lot of people who will still grind those tanks, so they have to be somewhat desirable.

      In wot everyone and their mother has both of them, so they don't have to be good. No money will be spent on the game just to get those tanks. The only way to monetize those tanks is to make them shit so you either grind something else or you spend more credits on consumable and gold ammo to negate their mediocrity.

      That is how those piece of shits at WG think about the game we once loved.

      @leggasiini to me bobject still snaps fine. My WR in it since 1.02 went up by 2% to 71% and I can't play well since 1.0 bececause my laptop pulls 15fps and I average 57-61 recent instead of 61+. Bobject is bad for dmg farming though but it wins games. 

  13. nabucodonsor

    I give up... (after 8 years)

    The greatest mistery, to me, is how they managed to hire some of the most idiotic developers possible, who after 8 years of working on this game haven't figured out how to make a map. I dont want to brag but even I can understand a map is shit or not by just looking at the satellite picture. Yet they managed to gives us again Province and fuck Fisherman's Bay and Fyords.
  14. The SP1c is a beast

  15. nabucodonsor

    I give up... (after 8 years)

    I agree that arty is bad but to say this is the only reason the game is failing is wrong. Personally 1.0 was terrible as maps are worse than ever (give me Pilsen back it was way better than Province and Mines) as now these maps award camping. Boject, Type 5, 430U, SConq ect have destroyed the variety this game once had. Russian BIAS bothers me a lot, as RNG, gold spam ect But maps is the biggest problem to me as the game is good if maps are good and they are clearly terrible atm, as they force you a certain playstyle. Also retarded players bother me even more than ever.

    I hope you hang around enough to see what kind of bullshit is Murazor planning "as he was demoted to work on a secret project". I just want to laugh to the new shit this idiot comes up with. I find incredible that WG still allows the developer who killed its only good product to work for them, even though I guess he probably brought some good income for some time.
  17. So I have been playing a friend's of mine account and I am suprised of how effective the Jadtiger can be. In a good defensive hulldown positions the alpha dpm HP combo is insane. It suffers a bit too much vs tier Xs but it still can be very dangerous.

    1. rojo180

      rojo180

      The gun is insane. it can pen every tank in the game with the press of the 2 key.

    2. nabucodonsor

      nabucodonsor

      And I am playing only with the standard AP. 

      So i guess it is even better than i think

    3. Fulcrous

      Fulcrous

      I loved the tank when I first unlocked it. It's fairly mobile, has a strong gun, great gun characteristics, high HP, and passable armor. You just can't rely on hull-down since it's only 250 flat.

  18. QB: " the 430U has the same aim time as the STB1" no mention to the soft stats tha make the real aim time on the STB1 much worse.

    " The 430U has a turret worse than the t62A" sure QB whatever

    How the fuck people still listen to this guy in 2018. This is almost fake news.

      Except how he reviews things is fucking stupid when it comes to tanks that are clearly OP like the Defender, which according to him, is perfectly fine. 

       

      I couldn't really care how digestible his information is to the masses, but glossing over WG's shitty balance decision to the point of almost shilling for WG is another thing. 

    3. nabucodonsor

      nabucodonsor

      Or he could have said "the 430U has a very big gun with 440 alpha dmg, with the same aim time as the STB1 but with better soft stats so in reality it aims faster". That would have taken him what like 5-10 seconds to say? The video would have been briefley longer so more view time for him and it would have been correct. It would be digestible for the masses has he has already talked about soft stats before.

      He chose not to, he didnt care or he was too lazy to say so. I dont know and dont care why but the fact remains that his info is not correct and a simple fact check could fix all of his statements (example like the Bobject which took him months to "realize" that it was OP). 

      As I said before it still suprises me that people still watch him considering how misinformative he can be.

    4. tajj7

      tajj7

      The majority of his viewers won't give a shit either way, even if he did mention the soft stats they wouldn't know or notice that difference. They are generally an ignorant mass who will have already decided something regardless of what he says. If it's Russian med, it's OP as the comments on the K-91 show, it i's a new premium it's OP and pay to win, even though the last like 10 prems WG have released have been nothing of the sort. If the replay is a unicum he'll be spamming gold, using mods, people will actually comment on that before even watching most of the replay. Most of them are ignorant, deluded bobs, who will believe whatever they want about the game if it excuses them in their own mind for being shit. The few that are not, well they learn the basics from QB, and he is good for stuff like that and then they will find out the other shit on their own, they are not the sort of people to take someone's word verbatum, they will go out and research stuff and learn so they can form their own opinion. I seriously doubt very many of QB's viewers are going to be influenced on whether he says a tank is OP or not, he just annoys the people who already know.

    Tier X Polsky - the Levandowsky

    Yes that is what I heard too
  20. The HWK12 ouspots the RHM PZ.... So the tier 8 is a better scout than the tier 10 even for the tier 10 meta. Knowing WG they will fix this by nerfing the tier 8. So fucking retarded.

      @nabucodonsor light tank balance is shit overall. Though outspotting alone doesn't mean that much. ELC EVEN outspots the 13 105 too 

    3. nabucodonsor

      nabucodonsor

      It does as it means that the RHM can be spotted easier by other tanks in a tier where the avg view range is much higher than tier 8. Also the RHM needs camo to compensate the huge profile it has, while the HWK is much smaller so much harder to hit. But only russian can be good at tier X

      13 105 is decent too.

    I can guarantee you even tier Xs find it hard to pen the side of it.
