  1. Pushing that area regardless of arty against camping tds makes no sense. You have zero cover while pushing against a crossfire. Also even if you mange to push and go futher you will still end up in another crossfire. And yes that means camping because of how the map works. Just like Airfield who pushes first loses. Aggression never pays off in this game as you are always going to walk into camping tds in a safe position. Like Kolni said not considering arty is a mistake even though it sucks donkey balls, that's the way it is.
  2. But why are you sitting there? Why did u not go dark? Why did you push a flank knowing you were walking into a crossfire of tds and arty and knowing that north was getting hammered Ok arty is trash but the best option was for you to camp, stay alive and go dark.

      A lot of players had some some personal problems with Dakillzor from interactions with him or the way he ran the clan, and left to make their own clan named ROIDS. That got the ball rolling, and more players left to other clans until Daki finally quit. Daki is a very good caller, and I think he's a nice enough guy when in a good mood, but he is often very very toxic and arrogant as well.

    T49 -- Land Arty in a Bite-Size Package

    One of the few things still fun in a boring game. Others that come to mind are the Bat and the T100lt
  6. So last night it happened I got bored with this game. I was so bored i had to stop playing. It is not fun anymore. Always the same shit over and over again.

      The game is ultra-salty solo and past a certain point ultra-boring. I try to play with frens whenever I can but even then it gets stale quickly. Besides, I've come to the point where I've basically ground out every tank which interests me (i.e. all the good heaviums), so the only thing that amuses me anymore are CDC/Chiri platoons or triple tryhard Type 4s.

      Tldr dont force yourself to enjoy the game because you can't.

      Yeah I'm there too. I'm only playing the game because I'm poor now and can't afford to ride my downhill bike so it's better than alcohol which the doctor told me to drink in moderation

      The worst part is winning and feeling nothing or even be angry about it. When i started it was nice to win, when I improved my gameplay it gave me some accomplishment, when i had my rare 3k wn8 sessions it was good; now when I win I either dont care or am angry because I carried some unthankful morons to victory. When I lose I either feel bad because I made some mistakes or because my team was full of idiots.

      CWs are bad and it takes too long to get all the tanks you want.

      Getting new lines is tedius and way too grindy.

      The constant powercreep is annoying at best.

      The entire core of this game is bad aside from the fact you have an arcade "ww2" tank game which was its only saving grace. The introduction of shit tanks, the terrible mm, the soviet bias, the incompetence of a company that cant and will never be able to replicate its succes and even worse, cant seem to mantain it, is terrible. 

      The only thing that kept me going foward was the idea of selft improvemnt, but I have come to realize that to play well I need to be not as tired as I have been this year due to my studies. And infact when I am not tired I can reach good levels of gameplay. So I can consider myself decent enough. And I am fine with that.

    Can we have a dick off challenge between Kolni and Kewei? I'd love to see you guys platooning and see who gets the highest DPG.

    re: Arty Focus in Hulldown Tanks

    M44 is the best tier 6 td
  11. Guys run the T100lt with rammer optics and binos. The raw view range can help a lot as vents is almost useless

      I 3-marked it with binocs optics and vents

    2. nabucodonsor

      nabucodonsor

      Eh the rammer helps me to permatrack and have some dpm to fight against tier 8s. Vents does almost nothing

    3. Sapros

      Vents make me feel better about myself. Worth it. 

  12. I have just realized that the 430U has more and better armour than the IS4 and the Lewandosky or whatever the tier X polish is called. Hell it's more amoured that the 705a. And these tanks are supposed to be super heavies.

    This is sad. And bad.

      It has probably the second best turret in the game, better for sure than the IS4. The UFP bounces most regular rounds unangled and is weak only to prem. LFP is tough even for tier 8s when angled and sidescraping is a monster. The IS4 works only when angled at 45 degrees

      The only weakness is that it cant facehug as the hull roof is overmatchable

      third best, sconq turret is still better because of the stupid shields

    4. nabucodonsor

      Not really the SConq has the cupola and the lower frontal part of the turret weak to 340 HEAT while the 430 has a weakness only around the gun. Now against 325 APCR they are both immune, but SConq's turret can be overmatched (and I just discovered this ) by 155mm guns while the 430's turret can not be overmatched.  Against very high pen guns they both get much weaker but to me is seems they are on equal terms in this regard.

      So i think the 430 is  better.

    re: Arty Focus in Hulldown Tanks

    You are totally right. It still suck though as I really dislike to be hit by something even if I am behind some cover that hides me from any other enemies. Also it is boring as fuck to play
  14. nabucodonsor

    What am I doing wrong in the 113?

    I have the same issue with my 5a. At the moment my dpg is also lower, has gone from 2,8k to 2,6k but i still cant figure out what I am doing wrong. I guess some tanks are jinxed with bad teams, because my 113 I has higher WR but with lower dpg.
  15. nabucodonsor

    China - meds or lights?

    That is not untrue, but the good thing is that you are grinding the 111111111111-4 anyway for the 5a so it is a no brainer to unlock it and buy it with a discount. Also fuck russian bias
  16. nabucodonsor

    China - meds or lights?

    113 is good man maybe a bit less than the 430U but not that much worse. @FlorbFnarb grind until the WZ-132. Maybe keep the 59 16 as it is the best LT in the tier. Remember that from the WZ-132 you can get the 120 and 121 aswell but my suggestion is that you dont go any further as those tanks are either obsolete or worthless. The 132 is very good altough probably the HWK is the best LT in the tier. Still it has some good perks like a good turret, a good HE pen and decent pen. If you feel like it the second gun on it has 246 or something of apcr at the cost of less handling and raw dpm. The dpm of the final gun is good, mobility is great (also very agile which is very important) and the alpha and dpm are good, allowing you to play as a supporting medium aswell. It has good dmg potential even in SH

    Elimination: Tier 9 - 2018

    On phone plz fix. T49+1= 25 While the 152mm may be derpy at times the ability to dmg any tank and to eliminate paper thin tanks is very important and can be game changing. Also the platform is very good with good camo and view range allows to play the scouting role effectively. In my opinion it gets a great gun (for a LT) on a good platform. t54ltw-3= 11. This tank has a crap gun, no armour and no russian cloaking device (camo is on par with the t49). It fails a being a LT due to the poor view range, size and unimpressive mobility and it fails as a pseudo-dmg dealer like the OG t-54 due to shit pen and accuracy.

    Elimination: Tier 9 - 2018

    Kolni is right. The definition of best, of absolute best means that a tank can outperform any other tank in any situation when played to its full potential. If you imagine a game of 15vs15 super computers that can play even better than the best super unicums you would truly see which is the best tank. An entirely differnt story is how well a certain tank can perform with a player with a certain level of skill. But in this case you are relating the tank's capability to the driver which will alter regardless the tank's true potential. So while a tank can be easier to drive and perform well like the t95, tanks like the t54 can outperform the td if the driver knows how use its full potential, even if players finds it harder to drive. But i think we can all agree that a t95 performs better in the hands of a less skilled player, so in that regard it might be considered the "best for not the best players".
  19. How do you fix the bug that makes you point the gun up when close to buildings?

      Its not a bug, its a feature. 

       

      Now try shooting something at a distance with a gun with high shell drop that has just become unspotted :):):):)

      I see WG is telling us to always aim for the sky!

      Jokes aside I got killed yesterday because I could not see where the enemy E3 was looking at when I switched to sniper mode.

  20. Eh you have problems? Check my stats of my recent tier 9s and compare it to my recent tier 10s. With the Juanito-4 i have 62% WR and if I recall well enough purple wn8. With the 5a 45% and 2,2k wn8. Almost 20% wr difference. And I still dont know why. Probably due to the better MM? But then again I grinded the 1111-4 from stock with the shitty 100mm gun where I was useless.
  21. Just make them shout "Allahu akbar" and let ram the arty to get the kill.
  22. Weelll the good thing seems to be that you can yolo the base and rush arty with ease. I'd be fun to kill the scumbags after the first minut of the game.
  23. No my 5a misses point blank shots while E4s shoot at me on the move

    New Pilsen

    I liked Pilsen before it got reworked. Now I am not sure how it works as I have not seen enough of the east flank but that side seems to me to be a bit too campy and hard to spot. West seems better as they fixed the camping positions by removing the bushes. Also I always enjoyed brawling in that area. So for now I cant say much as I have not played on it enough.
  25. Guys for those who have not played on Minsk a lot this replay shows some positions for the brawling area. Dont focus on the gameplay per se but the positions used could be helpful
