  1. In the past I've always used gold to get free xp to free xp straight to the top tier vehicles. I have a feeling I could use it much better and effectively. Is their any suggestions on how to better use gold?
  2. Happy new year everyone. 

  3. It seems like 5/10 MM would be a better thing for MM to try to find first rather than 3/5/7.

  4. this is-2 doesn't seem to need to aim. just snap a shot in the general direction of a far away target and hit anyways :P

      That's exactly how I found it playing my IS-2 (Russian or Chinese). Just snap shot left and right which is shockingly effective and makes about as much sense as a monkey having sex with a door knob. It's completely fucking bonkers that it works as well as it does.

      Russian accuracy = The bigger the circle the more accurate the shot.  

      Drink more wodka comrade, and this makes stronk sense.

  5. And then it came to trojan's horrifying realization, that he would have to play the 110 with the IS-2 gun.

      And then there's the just as horrifying revelation - you'll have to play the 110 even more after you unlock the next gun.

      Just finished this horrific grind in under 50 matches...thank you  48% Christmas bonus and xp bonus

  6. It feels like the frequency of tier 10 battles/grand battles has increased a lot this last patch. Hoping it will help tier 8 MM.

      All my t8 battles yesterday were bottom tier.

  7. And so the credit grind begins. That added multiplier+the credit multiplier will boost the credits by a large sum.

  8. Got it in my second box purchase (25) was a little worried.
  9. WZ-111 5A first or 113 first? can't make up my mind.

      I feel like the 113 is kinda forgotten with the 5A being there tbh

    3. Assassin7

      Assassin7

      probably the 5A, but I highly recommend both. 113 is still a great tank

    4. Meirzin

      I'd get the 5A, I really enjoy it. 

  10. First battle in this IS-2 (non-premium), so far I think I might enjoy the tank.

      The 110 is pretty much vastly inferior to the IS-3 in every way. 

    3. Assassin7

      Assassin7

      the 110 is.... meh. It does its job alright, but it was the most boring tank I've ever played. 

    4. hazzgar

      hazzgar

      Just expect the 110 turret to get penned everywhere. The armor also has strange weak areas.

  11. Are the boxes completely random?

      Did you get any thing else besides gold like premium time or consumables or credits?

      sure. 2 million plus 2x t4 tanks and 9d prem

      Gold is so much cheaper on EU that the boxes don’t seem like as great of a deal as they are on NA.

  12. Those boxes worth the buy they look like pretty nice rewards in them.

      So, officially everyone but @DirtyACE7 that buys boxes gets a Type 59. So, your odds are 100% since your name is not @DirtyACE7.

      :kappa:

      DirtyACE7

      Fuck me! I was watching a streamer who bought ONLY 5 boxes and got a Type 59. What the fuck is happening? Where's my Type 59 FFS?!?!

  13. How does one play swamp from north spawn in a heavy.

    1. RC_Tank

      Here's what I do in pretty much all my tanks, it's very effective from what I've experienced.

      eo7Ch88.jpg

      Green squares are areas where I stop for shots, I usually stop at the first square to get shots on the 0 line and to make sure TDs arent sitting at the second square. Don't push to the second square until your team begins pushing the tanks they sent to the 0 line, or you'll get shot as you try to play the ridgeline. Once you can safely play the second square, it's relatively safe as long as you have support from like D5.

      As the game progresses you'll need to push. Depending on how many tanks they still have, I either push around the 9 line or just clean up by pushing south through the second square.

      Some things to watch out for is when your side almost inevitably loses the castle/city, they'll eventually have shots on you if they push towards your base. If your team loses the 0 line you can't play the middle safely, but thankfully that doesn't seem to happen that often (on NA.)

      I just go north. Go to like C7, wait for our meds to clear the north, push accross to the ramp. Though i play mainly fast heavies.

    3. Fulcrous

      I literally snipe then push to hill underside or reposition for sniping. Swamp is immensely camp oriented and its just not worth being aggressive on it.

  14. How difficult was the step up from blue to purple? I'm trying to figure out what purples do differently than blues.

      Not WN8 wise but I know there is a gap but I just dont know how I can make the leap.

    3. monjardin

      From personal observation, “purples” pay attention to the whole map and think ahead with quicker decisiveness. This is done while maintaining mechanics and local awareness on a consistently high level. 

      It kind of reminds me of good chess advice. Imagine the perfect position of your pieces and construct a plan to get them there while also thwarting your opponents goals. Winning is all about positioning and creating imbalances in your favor. 

      Conversely, “blue” players tunnel vision and fail to play consistently. They may choose positions that are strong, but in a different context (e.g. only when you have enough support to prevent getting YOLO’d).

      I have recent purple WN8, but I definitely don't feel like I'm a "unicum" simply because I make so many mistakes. One of the things that has helped me the most, is always being mentally active, don't be lazy. Try your best every game, not just the games that are going well for you. Increase your survival ratio. The more games you live to the end in, the more games you impact. One of the biggest things, is pulling more information from your minimap. Once when watching CrabEatOff play, I told him that I felt like he plays the game on the minimap more than on the actual screen! He's extremely good at looking ahead, and always doing the best possible thing possible all the time. Start asking yourself, aloud even. "Am I doing the best thing possible right now? If not, what is the best thing I can be doing right now?" Pay attention to your map and your teammates, and use that information to make correct choices. If you make a choice, and it doesn't turn out well, analyze why, what you should've done, and what you will do next time to prevent the mistake from reoccurring.

  15. Hell no I really hate playing slow heavies and trust me this would be a thing a nightmare for me to play
  16. The Super conqueror seems to be very prone to arty splash damage. I'm finding this out the hard way.

      Its got 33% on the move and 5% firing. But its not like it sits in a bush firing away. You fire, get lit, go back to cover!

      I've had my crew killed twice before the tank while playing one, it's nuts.

      Yeah playing a cw match the enemy started shooting HE knocked out all but my driver.

  17. Past few nights I've been doing the operation gambit campaign, I have earned enough fame points to win a tank, but I still don't have bonds and my clan fell to much to get a multiplier the second stage. Damn it I really wish I could've got that reward tank

    1. hiipanda

      hiipanda

      Really wish wg had released how many bonds you needed for tier 10s earlier, so people could grind them out.

      or you know just keep it to fame points.

      The system was designed to cuck clans selling spots for tanks. In the process they cucked everyone else.

  18. Is the WZ-111 5A worth grinding or should I go for the IS-7?

      I'm grinding both and the IS2 seems to be pretty good just a bit derpy. Haven't got the IS but I played with kv85 and it is fun with the 122mm 

    3. simba90

      If you can afford it, running pure APCR in the IS-7 makes it pretty respectable.

    4. RC_Tank

      RC_Tank

      Yeah, IS-7 with full APCR is really nice

  19. I cannot get a hold on how to win with this FV4202 for the life of me. 

  20. https://worldoftanks.com/en/news/clan-wars/global-map-campaign-op-gambit/ announced yesterday.
  21. I have a vanilla client and I am seeing the indicator change quiet a bit. Where the defender's and E75's LFP should have been green (t-54 heat) I instead got a yellow indicator but penned my shots.
  22. Welcome to the community.
  23. https://worldoftanks.com/en/news/clan-wars/season-6-rules/. Not really sure what to make of it since I didn't play much.
  24. Thank you for the feed back! everyone my questions are pretty much covered for now! .
  25. I have gotten my WN8 up, but my winrate is still suffering and I don't know why. I don't sit back and snipe at the back of the map (nearly impossible considering that the tanks I play recently have bad aiming values) and I try to win games the way I know possible (ex.: firing on low health target, trying to hold flanks as long as possible if the team lemming trains) Any recommendations for this issue?
