  1. another fine example of contact with a pubbie... note we lost.. I did 4500 damage in a 3-5-7 game in a conway and my team still managed to find a way to lose. 

    This moron messages me after the game accusing me of cheating.. then his clannie messages me accusing me of .. talking shit about his clan? 

    so... "platoon 2 was running cheat mods"... but then why the fuck message me? I was solo.. my brain hurts

    .. that first conversation did have some more to it where I told him to stop failing at seal clubbing tier 6 average since he was so good. ... maybe that's what got them all riled up.

      Yeah I had some recent contact with a pubbie who slammed me for being noob on my new XVM camo account because I had 52% wr overal and he had 56% WR overal while playing 11k battles (out of 20k total) in t67 (67% wr in this), 4k in a type64 and 2k in a b2... 

      That dude did 0 dmg but I'm a noob because I didn't listen to his late game advice of soloing a med I cannot clip 70% of the time in my elc even...

  2. ... yeah... I wish I had been kidding and incorrect....

      lol... yet

      while there are tanks that have been in the files for a while not in the game.. this is WG.. maybe for a special event or some weird battle mode or something, hopefully... but I think we'll see this in some form or another.

      Yeah they are spending time testing it but "it will not be in the game"... Unless it's for some special event mode it will be in the game

      Funny thing is they would lose less money if 1.0 didn't block so many people from playing

  4. holy shit.. its like the scorpion had too many crumpets or whatever the fuck they eat to get that big
  5. I don’t know about the FV4005 s1 autoloader but the T58 155 was a thing(prototype mock up at least) http://www.tanks-encyclopedia.com/155mm-gun-tank-t58/
  6. Shit, since they’re so busy breaking the game can I finally please have the T58 155mm turreted autoloader please? ‘Cause MURIKA and I’d actually free XP to that broken thing Immediately.

    WG Seattle is kill

    Meathead lives in the S.F. Bay area.
  9. SO.. WG says they need to fix prefMM tanks by changing alllll of those tanks, rebalance everything, test them out so they can FIX THE MM right?

    Well.. you know how else they can fix this issue?  +1/-1 MM.. everything becomes prefMM.. which do you think takes more work to enable?

    Fixing 10+ tanks or.... changing the MM brackets to +/-1.  Hmmmmm

    What's the actual goal here?  Overbuff and sell more. .

      Agreed, but don't you think it would be easier to balance/tweak between tiers at +/- 1? I mean, they've so far failed with +/- 2.... maybe on purpose.

      The cynic in me sees their past rhetoric and their decisions.  It seems they really want to encourage people to get to tier 10 regardless of whether the player wants to play at 10. 

      Well, I found this funny:

      T10 is their "endgame" and a big money sink, of course they want you to get to T10 so you'll either buy prem tanks or prem time (or both).

      I often do the route I saw hairlesmonkeyboy do many moons ago from north spawn and spotted lots of stuff going hill and east side rails so I went and stayed on the crest of the hill.  It took the team some time to get going but eventually they started shooting lit tanks.  The enemy put 10-12 tanks on the east side and a couple in F6 so the 1/2 line was barren and low risk to push anyway.  More often than not I just surf the ridge and exploit openings as you mentioned.

      10K? Did that in my E25 once.

    4. kreigermann

      kreigermann

      that's because the E25 is a LT incorrectly-categorized as a TD. I've pulled a 9k +(3k/6k or something like that) combined in it, but I absolutely despise anything below tier 8 so I don't play it very often.

  11. thought of the moment

    When I feel even a little guilty for spending the amount of money on this game I have over the course of several years..

    then I look at how much my other hobbies and current new interests have/are costing and it helps me realize in the big picture wot is really cheap even when fully funded out of pocket compared to my current next venture. 

    premtime/bucketload of premtans/goldpackages blaaah blaaah blaaah.  for the number of hours spent keeping me out of my other hobbies, I probably saved money..

      Unavailebow

      On the opposite side you have people like me spending way too much on whatever games it is

      WoT and Warframe in particular, need not to count the exact value but enough money to get my room fill with electronics.

  12. Doing it the grindy way, made it to middle of 5th mission in a few evenings play. I've been averaging 1k base xp/battle over the last 3 days over 99 games by playing mostly tier 8/9s (you get more XP and credits for punching up.) sprinkle in generous use of premammo and only playing what you are comfortable in. LTs/Meds for me mostly.. I still expect to spend money to pick up the tank on discount.. my work schedule has been inconducive to marathons like this.

    The Untold Truth about the Somua SM

    I picked this up because I want something for the 50b crew and I haven't learned my lesson not to give WG my money. Exactly what @DHP wrote. I'm 80+ games in since picking it up. It is very MM dependent. I've noticed on NA when the server pop is swollen(recently post 1.0 and on weekends) this thing can slay because you aren't used as filler for T10 games as often. When top tier you can clip out most equal tier tanks and reasonably expect to bounce. The flat front(shoulderless) armor lets you side scrape a bit more reliably with its 90mm side armor(which is what the 50 100 has for front armor lol), -10 degrees of depression with the flat, shovel looking shape of the turret I've managed to bounce some surprisingly big incoming shells when ducking back behind a hill. That 5th shell though can be quite handy, I've managed to hold bigger, scary tanks in awkward positions for 30-40 seconds when it tried to yolo me as I made my slooowww awkward retreat.

    Jagdpanzer E-100 - Feels OP

    Thanks, it is echoing how I THINK I've been playing it. I think one of the problems is I only take it out late night end of session games when I'm about to go to bed and consequently make poor choices. I have decent games in it.. but still tend to lose those high score game(4-6k) I'm admittedly pretty poor at things that don't go fast. I've also been getting bad match ups since the bullshitwagon v4 platoons are a thing. Can do a decent job 1v1 and control the engagement but when there are 2 or even 3 of them and they just all +arty decide to: KILL THE JPEERMERGERRD XVMmmmmm-shit-pants yoloyoloyoloyolo (FFS I'm only a goddamn blueberry..) there's almost nothing I can do but go down with 1-2 shots. Yes, I'm with support.. no my support couldn't kill them even with the platoon ignoring them with shiiterfocus on me.

    T110E4- Because it Was There

    Hi Wotlabs, During this last sale I bought the T110E4 simply because I had it unlocked and I need/want a T10 TD for missions potentially. I did a search on the forums and I either failed at using the search tool or there is no topic(high likelyhood of the former, but I've tried a couple times so I'll risk the flames) There are a few youtubers that love this tank, and pretty much say it plays like a HT(like I ended up playing the T30 in the end to recover from a sub-50wr.. barely) Now, the E4 doesn't have the hull down potential due to -6(?) gun depression and potentially softer turret. Those videos were a year or so old and I wanted to get some fresh advice on whether anything has changed. Love it? like it? hate it? Lessons learned? If you don't wanna be a turd then do(this) or don't do(this)? From the(potentially) lack of an "appreciation" or "fan club" thread is it that... bleh? For crew I'm leaving my T30 crew in place, and moving a 2-skill crew from another US TD, which means I need to retrain from sneaky. I was thinking: full repairs/Sixth/Safe Stowage -> BIA-> gunnery skills(SS/SR)since the thing is slow-ish with a semi-circle turret arc chances of needing SS/SR a lot in close quarters is optional. Thanks in advance.

    Jagdpanzer E-100 - Feels OP

    Necro-ish..? Is there anyone here that plays this thing well that could please post some replays I can watch? Does anyone bother with this thing at all? I've been playing it on and off recently and after a couple fistfuls of games(30ish) in this tank.. It is very clear I'm playing this thing absolutely wrong. Frustrating as hell, and my worst wr in any tank. Thanks.
  18. pubbies: (while playing cancer)After openly admitting they XVM focused me in a previous game when I was playing a mid tier med when they had far easier shots available to them, gets pant-shitting angry when I oneshot them in my JPE.

      That is what blacklist is for, see someone on my team in arty on my blacklist, load HE and it it's enough for one shot, bye bye, then quickly unblacklist them, send them a message that karma is bitch and then put them back of the blacklist. 

    3. Archaic_One

      Archaic_One

      The other day I got frustrated that nobody was moving at all on Prok while I was working mid in my 5a against 3 arty.  Obviously as the only non camper, I was getting all of the clicker love.  At one point when I was getting dark one of our arty said 'spot 5a!' . . . I spotted his ass all right - with an HE pen, then for giggles I went ahead and killed our T-92 too, then took an hour off.  Worth it.  You're doing the lords work friend, keep the faith!

    4. kreigermann

      kreigermann

      To be clear. I don't typically TK arty... as annoying as fuck as they are and a pure cancer to the game, they are still an asset on the team(ugh, did I just fucking type that?)...  it takes a particularly notable piece of shit to stick out in my memory enough to REMEMBER the match vividly enough to even say something about the XVM focus. When he confirmed my suspicions with something like "yeah I focused him in a match"  It was time to execute his POS ass.

      I click on occasion for missions, I have a reasonable handle on what target priority and angles of shit-on-your-game doomlaser is capable of and what other targets are also viable. (I run modless with nametags turned off) I've focused people and flanks to support an overmatch or protect against an overmatch I understand when I get clicked because I made a risky, over exposing aggressive play. (Yeah, it is still frustrating in the moment though). What I have never done is focus someone due to name recognition, clan recognition or other stupid, non target priority related reason.  That shit is insanely frustrating.

    Glacier

    Only gotten it once in two sessions. Went in a training room yesterday and derped around for 25 min ish.. Here is a copy of the glacier minimap. Below are my first impressions on what I plan on trying for in LTs for now, and what happened in my first game on it. Far from a "meta analysis" but maybe its helpful in the early weeks/months of the map being out. The game I was in went down like the red arrows.. TDs and heavies stuck around the outside ring. A group of heavies went north east to fight in that corridor. Several of their tanks(mix of heavies, MTs and TDs) went down the 9/0 line. I went along the road in K line around the SW corner, got caught out by proxy spotting a higher tier LT and then got killed. There are a lot of trees on the SW coner and even 500+m VR did NOT spot them until I was too close to disengage. If I think the south needs spotting I think I'll try going to the marked spots. The rest of the obvious vision control locations are right along the A1 to K0 diagonal line. They pretty much drew a line of cover across there, There is some hard cover and hills you can duck in and out of but otherwise very exposed. I'm interested to see what other people experience in this map, and it will be interesting to see as the meta settles how the strategy evolves.

      Played it once, had a pretty enjoyable, dynamic game. But whether that's going to be true in the future as people learn the map and a meta develops I couldn't say.

      I had honestly forgotten they put a new map in, or I would have gone in a training room right off. I didn't get it in the rotation until the very end of my session.

      Basically I played the map just off of impressions I got on the minimap and during countdown. Still got one penetrating derpshot but that.. that's just not enough chodepunting.

  21. nothing quite like getting set on fire 3 games in a row.. this fucking game sometimes..

  22. Things I learned this weekend: According pubbie XYZ I have impossible to attain stats through legitimate, incremental improvement in play.  

    He could not and would not be convinced that:

    A) I was not a filthy reroll(which contradicts B... if I had some kind of under the table connection with WG, or was using illegal mods.. why would I need to be a filthy reroll )

    B) According to.. .this.. um... person(?),  to achieve these IMPOSSIBLE stats I had to either be cheating by using bots(his word choice, not mine), or have a connection to Russia and WG. (Telling him I don't use mods, further cementing this FACT that I must be connected directly to WG, he implied I had a family member at a high level in the company.. wait, what?!).

    B) I'm REALLY not that good at this game....(OK, he was convinced of that, just not in the way I expected.. he told me over and over that his 45%wr makes him a better player since it is legit. )

    so... yep... I could apparently bot to better stats. FML is THAT how the good players do it?


    3x weekends.. where do these things COME from out of the woodwork?  Its been a long time since I felt so overwhelmed by a sea of shit, but this last weekend just took the cake.

      Personally, playing 13 105 or BC is the pinnacle of learning to re-position. Usually I just wonder how in the hell am I reloaded already cos i spend my time driving to another spot and think of a plan to engage.

    3. kreigermann

      kreigermann

      @SaintLaurentius, I'm currently building up my crew for the 13 105(already have it in garage), and Batchat  is my favorite tier 10 med. <3 it. I was originally planning on putting the iVstabs on the t49 to help me boost it up to 3rd mark but I might just put it on the batchat instead. My only gripe with the batchat is the same one with the t49, ambush an isolated opponent, calculate #shots to kill(ok 2 extra in magazine to kill, time to murderball)... pop in miss one bounce one and low roll ...  a lot like the T49, if you rush your shot or mistime your ambush you're screwed. 

    4. PlanetaryGenocide

      PlanetaryGenocide

      Assassin autoloaders and derp49 honestly have a lot of similarities in playstyle.  The main difference is that derp dumps its load in one big meaty thrust but as a trade-off you have to pick your targets/aim your shots way better since you can't expect HE pens against most things that a batchat or a 13 105 can reasonably expect a pen on

    T49 -- Land Arty in a Bite-Size Package

    \o/ many thanks to @CraBeatOff and @rev01ution for your advice and encouragement several months ago. Implementing it into my gameplay took a little time, and it took waaaaay longer than I would have hoped for, mark hung at 93% for the last several hundred games... still, I'm pretty proud of this, 3-marking my favorite tank in the game. HELL YEAH! edit: Mark was done entirely with 152 derp. Will post my last 5 + or so games for entertainment purposes.
