  1. Currentlyranked battles 60% of the time result in both teams forming a lemming train that rushes one, the result being either than boith teams meet on the same flank (in which case they will spam gold at each others faces for 10 minutes) or they will go on different flanks resulting in a massive campfest for the next 12 minutes. In 25% Only one team forms a train and either wins if they are smart enough to push their flank hard or loseif they are a bunch of wankers (and due to the chevron system noone wants to be the one at the frontline...) in 15% of the battles everything is basically like randoms but with massive goldspam. Basically you want something mobile with a turret that is somewhat resistant against gold and maybe also a decent upper plate. In any case, this would be my personal list for tanks to play in ranked in order: Object-907 (if you want to play a medium, broken tank is broken) WZ-111 model 5a (mobile, alpha + dpm, armor when hulldown) Super Conquerer (armor, DPM, just use your gundepression to hide the cupola from the heatspam) Object 430U/113 (armor, mobility and alpha) Centurion AX/Patton (if you are a depressed medium player) Object 140 (if you don't have any of the other listed mediums) Superheavies don't work as they are too slow to move with the lemmings and they will get heatspammed to death as soon as they show their turretfaces. TDs are shit because they generally have no turret and are only good for sniping or are slow as fuck. 268 V4 can do some work but it is more effective at ruining the days of tier 8 players than it is against a bucnh of tier 10 gold spamers. Lights suck in general and unless the map is lakeville your spotting is mostly useless. Arty: Basically a cointoss wether you win or lose and due to the shitty XP-gain of artillery you will end up losing more chevrons than you gain.
  2. The 260 became kinda obsolete when they buffed the 113 and especially after they introduced the tier 10 WZ-1111!1. Those 2 tanks now became obsolete after the introduction of the 430U. If anything, you can expect the 430U to become obsolete after they are going to introduce the buffed Object 777 or whatever else Murazas mad mind can come up with that is going to come after the T-10.
  3. Once upon a time a man named Murazar once saw a high damage replay on youtube where a retard yolorushes a bunch of imbeciles in a 263. The following night he had a wet dream, a brilliant idea for a new great addition to the game that is called World of Tanks. He was he went to work on it soon after and turned his wet dream into reality but alas, as zealously as he was he wasn't a very smart man.

    In other news, the 430U is hilarious and you can happily sell your T62A and retrain its crew for the 430 if you haven't done so already!

    4.3k DPG after 35 battles, reminds me a lot of the old T-22 in the way that you can play stupidly agressive and get away with it thanks to the broken armor.

    It definitely shits on all the other T10 Heaviums.

      430U has reached a point where it's hard to put it in the "heavium" category. At this point it's better armored than most heavy's.

      The Chinese heavies are going on-track this weekend on NA, if that factors into your decision at all. I intend to take advantage and grab at least the 5a. Maybe the 113 too if I can conjure up enough credits.

    4. nabucodonsor


      I'm on EU... But I am close to a discounted 5A from the Xmas event

      Is Jeff_Ich_Rigge_Jeff still around? Might be a position for him :kappa:

      "welcome to paris man. here is your original Wargaming brand lube to prepare for the russian shareholders that visit today. after that you got the nightshift banning everyone from the forums that uses the word OP in their posts. Tomorrow will be even more fun, you will do a life Q&A on our twitch channel,here are the 50 pages with info you are NOT allowed to answer"

  6. Why the fuck do high tiers still get to play on Mines all the fucking time and why the fuck is Mines Encounter still a thing...

  7. That feeling when you get randomly invited to your old clan you were a founding member of but left over a year ago and you don't know a single name on the member list.

      Certainly not, as far as I can tell the clan now consists of a few rerolls mixed with a whole lot of perma blues.

      Most of the core left after the grand campaign in 2016 and the remaining few notable members left in the following months after that.

      Judging by their recruitment thread it looks like some German idiot bought the clan/name and decided that he wants his own unicunt clan, doesn't seem to have worked out well so far.

      For even more lolz, NA seems to have a doppelgänger Green-shitter-version of our clan for some reason:

      Original: http://forum.worldoftanks.eu/index.php?/topic/531058-santi-semper-anticus-recruitment-topic/

      NA-version: http://forum.worldoftanks.com/index.php?/topic/565415-santi-semper-anticus-competitive-cwsh-clan-1800-overall-2300-recent-apply-now/#topmost

      They copy&pasted the clan name, logo and even the first paragraph of the original recruitment thread, they are only missing the requirements to actually be a decent player.

      I would troll them so hard for that if I actually had a NA-account, but I seriously can't be bothered

      SANTI NA: 500 assist & 0.8 spots on t10 meds (= anti-statpadding req):serb:Best meme I have seen today.

      I always disliked copycats.

      not gonna lie, I was extremely surprised the first time I saw a santi clan tag (on NA)

  8. https://www.freepress.net/blog/2017/04/25/net-neutrality-violations-brief-history Also, the same kind of non-argument can be made about any law that has ever existed in the history of mankind.
  9. So you essentially trade raw DPM for having either a lot more flexible autoloader. I can see the value in it plus the line won't just be a copy & paste of an already existing line (atleast gameplay-wise).
  10. One can only imagine how the cries of the 3 poor souls having to operate this tincan while driving on unEVEN terrain...
  11. Armorchanges in a nutshell: 257 got its side armor nerfed, upper side armor nerfed from 140 to 130mm (211->195 EFA) and the lower side armor (the V-shape) got nerfed to 40mm so as long as you are Russian or a TD you will be able to overmatch it, for everyone else it is still cancer. 268 Version 4 got its frontal armor slightly buffed, lower plate goes from 290 nominal to 300 nominal and superstructure goes from 250 nominal to 260 nominal (EFA goes from ~335 to 345-350 EFA for both LFP and suerstructure agains HEAT), so have fun rolling your dices when firing your HEAT-rounds! Object 705 stockturret got nerfed (or fixed), you can now penetrate a somewhat large part of the stockturret frontally with 330 HEAT and side/back are now cheese. Object 705A got its upper hull buffed from 170 nominal to 175 nominal, it is slightly more resistant against gold I guess.
  12. You think it is good not to have a system in place that punishes companies who violate the principles of net neutrality? Net neutrality is the very basis of a free market for the internet and with it gone the ISPs would abuse their monopolies and screw over both their customers and their direct competitors as history has shown.
  13. Unless you are shooting down on it you are better off shooting at the super structure or LFP.
  14. The lower lower plate has 200 EFA if you like to do some pixelshooting, though it is hard to find ingame without using the penindicator or you go for a 50/50 shot throough the cupola. Or you can always load the gold like Murazar intended and go for a 50/50 shot through the superstructure or LFP.
  15. The Object 705A aka what the E-100 "Gr8 Turret M8" wished to be.



    All these new Russian tanks are a pain in the dick to play against though, as crappy as their guns may be.

    1. leggasiini


      705A is also stupidly mobile for the amount of armor it gets, its kind ridiculous

      Its the ultimate final nail in the IS-4’s coffin pmuch

    2. Hellsfog


      Is-4 buff incoming because the tank no longer had a roll?

      "We at wargayming would like to use this opportunity to buff the other underperforming high tier Russian vehicles as they have been underperforming compared to overpowered vehicles such as the Leopard 1 and Jagdpanzer E-100"
