  1. sigh.... that moment when you accidentally drown on a carry-able game because reasons... :(

  2. Right now there are only two tier 8 LTs I'm considering as "keeper" tanks. LTTB because it is hilarious to go a bazillion kph, bounce JPE100s because you're juking like a cat on crack and it has a good gun if you can play with the bad gundep. My go-to when I just want to hit W and not stop hitting W. Weak-ish VR but with a strong crew/consumables you can make it work. The Bat12t, I'm using as a crew trainer for a set of femcrew I've set aside for the 13-105, took me a long ish adjustment period(30+games of dogshit) for me to figure this tank out and now I'm having a ton of fun in it. Great package, that hunts other lights very well. I run binocs over optics and it has been a good counter spotting anti-LT for me. The HWK is great fun, but the gun can be really frustrating. The shell velocity on it is so lazy it reminds me of shooting HE from the pz4H derp. The gun is surprisingly reliable in putting the shell where you want it to go but your prey might have already taken a nap and moved on before the package arrives. Great size/view range/camo package lets you really abuse lower tiers and still be useful when you get strings of tier 10s. I Do not recommend: I de-crewed my poor bulldog, I was sitting at 98% or so mark when it got the 6-shot autoloader taken away and it became completely un fun for me. I played a handful of matches with the changes and just gave up. Still fast but gets counter-lit easily, the ROF is bleh, and unless you want to active scout every map(which is what I keep my LTTB for) it is now just a decoration in my garage. Too bad, too.. the bulldog is what really got me into LTs, and I've trained several crews through it. -Don't know about the WZ, haven't bought it back after tier shift. I've heard some people like it in T8 SH. I know its a tier8 thread buuuut I think a lot of people mainly go-to the 9s since they are in a very good place(T8 MM sucks) and have been mostly playing those over t8 LTs. 13-90 is TONS of fun; and well... <3 T49 zoomzoomlandcancer butthunter <3 another alternative for my fun has been T7 LT.. I've also been enjoying the CMCD because the autoloader is great and the whole package just clicks with me. *edit ^ For whatever reason I couldn't edit my post and since I failed at counting and/or justifying my opening statement.. I'm considering those three tanks but if I were to keep two I think it would be the LTTB/bat12t since the HWK is training up my GER T10 crew.
  3. So, with the changes to cammo rules with that last micro patch.. Do the special holiday cammo sets permanent like the clan cammo, or can you swap them around? 

  4. @CraBeatOff thanks for letting me perform some chemotherapy on Karelia last night. If that damn  skorpG didn’t get lucky on me I was planning on sui-splattering myself on your E75 hull while doing a parade style barrel salute.

      I didn't notice it was you, but i did honestly have a thought like "oh a LT in the back...hrm we're gonna win but I'm glad this arty is dying"

      I would have been very confused if you rammed me, until i saw the tank and then I'd have been gleeful

      I only noticed and made the plan at the very end when I quick-checked the team list after killing them.  I knew the skorp turdchased me across the whole goddamn damn map, and was cutting up the mid incline.. he would have(and in the end did) ruined my fun plan and needed to be dispatched first.  Was the only way to Valhalla full of shiny and chrome. 



       ah well, that team was freaking awful, story of my entire solo experience last night.

  5. there's a show off your 3 marks thread I recommend: Nicely done though.. I lost patience with my turtle and stopped playing it. :/
  6. Well, I'm just shy of 180 games in this thing now and my opinion of it holds. For me, this thing is a lot of fun. Most fun I've had with a premium since the 90mm Bulldog. The combination of small size, great camo and good view range is good. Do I wish this thing were 5-10kph faster? Yeah.... but it already seems to benefit from the tiny size and I've noticed lot of misses during my escapes that maybe some players may not be aware of(or remember happened) . The warning I'd give to people is that I've accidentally suicided by getting bumped by arty end game a few times.. mainly to crusaders.. I forgot that those stupid things go backwards really fast, this thing absolutely will take lots of collision damage over any bump. Most scouts can take a small nudge to get behind cancer but if you don't have at least half your HP left I would absolutely not risk it.
  7. FFS Can I please stop getting city maps over and over when I actually try to mark a LT...

      Change servers. It changes map rotation

    2. kreigermann


      I used to do that when there were east/west US servers but now... :(  

  8. I want my... I want my.. I want my EYE-ESS-THREE
  9. I got the IS3A.. and hated it. It sits in my garage as a momento of wasteful spending. From what I remember playing it: IS3 benefits from amazing gun handling(dispersion values IIRC) decent mobility combined with good armor in tier. All combined it is a strong package that shifts well, shoots well, and bounces shots reliably. While the IS3A (more or less) keeps the armor of the IS3, it gives up mobility(making it harder to wiggle/shift and bounce) and gun handling(+some penetration). Would not recommend.
  10. WG listed this as being sold at a SPECIAL PRICE!!!(ermergerrd so special!) well, it was special for them I'm sure.

    I'm pretty sure they took a cactus to my bondstash-wallethole with no lube.. still.   shortbus is mine!

      I’m not saying the reward wasn’t rather lacking. It would have been better if the bond payouts were more in line with top 3k(hell, or top 1k even) gets 4K bonds, the option to buy the tank + fame/clanrank rewards. 

      I just knew what I was in for and wasn’t shocked that they didn’t budge.

      well, the problem is that the top 3K are supposed to get a tank, but apparently people in the top 500 aren't making enough bonds to actually buy one. people in MAHOU. the clan that came first! the payout system is ridiculous. 

      if you finished top 500 in mahou, you got a tank. stop the bs. everyone who participated in mahou got the tank.

      The lowest payout being 750 bonds with a 7x multiplier. that's 5250 bonds. You're literally being a shit pubbie by saying that.

      The part where the system is ridiculous is true but it wouldnt have been like that if RU/SEA and some NA/EU clans werent selling spots.

    4. Assassin7


      I wouldnt know, im not in mahou any more.  Thats what I read via slack, people were complaining that they werent gonna get enough bonds for a tank. 

  11. funny thing about getting provoked by and then TKd by an elite temper tantrum throwing asshole.... you'll forget me and wonder why I will drop a hot T49 load your ass in some random game way in the future because I'm just some random shitter to you... but I'll remember, and I absolutely hold grudges.

    1. TAdoo87


      This is pretty sad on multiple level.

    2. kreigermann


      yep. it is 100% petty shit.

  12. On the positive side though it is an excellent trainer for correcting my tilty playing habit, forcing me to actively choose good engagements. Just yoloing 6s and leaning on the strength of the tank is a good way to get embarrassed in this thing.... ammoracked,driver dead, tank hit, engine yellow Aaaaaaaaand I’m in fire GG.
  13. first 10 games... 3 fires... next 10 games.. 2 more fires... yeaaaaaaahh lol I've had to remind myself that this thing really only brawls one at a time... even pea-shooter guns penetrating will wreck the inside like a grenade went off in the crew compartment.
  14. I JUST got done watching that and was about to post XD
  15. \o/  First 2-marked Tier 10!  

    A minor accomplishment but an accomplishment none the less(for me anyways).



    1. kreigermann


      MANY thanks to the wotlabs community for all the advice along the way. 

    2. leggasiini



      More sooner than you think, you will 3 mark your first tier 10...eventually :>

    3. kreigermann


      Thanks for the "+"s in encouragement all.

      @leggasiini I hope so. I think I'm a bit of a ways off. I have yet to 3mark a T9... though I keep getting frustratingly close with my t49... 94.3% TWICE... then I get focusartied, tilted and I potato back to 87%. :( 

      The batchat just fits my playstyle as a light tank/vision game and yolo assassin style. Considering at the 150/160ish game mark when I was at some dogshit level 1800 or so DPG overall to now a mediocre 2700.. I'm pretty satisfied so far with my progress, and still slowly improving.
