  1. I'm not buying it as I'm just about as disillusioned with WG as it gets. They tailor the game more and more to the lowest common denominator. The absolute garbage that doesn't give a shit how the game is, they will still play it.
  2. What century do we live in where two dudes can't suck each other off while playing some tonks?
  3. So I traded in my T34B for a Lowe. I've been watching some streams and I keep seeing players using the GLD instead of vents. Is that really the best choice?

      Why would u even use gld in the first place. The gun is great.

      Yeah I was surprised but the streamers I watched, whom are all super unicums, used a gld and it kind of made me think why they picked that.

      It's because the tank is really, really slow. When your DPM is shit and all your damage comes out of engagements rather than cleanup you really can't afford to miss shots. You're going to outpaced by your entire team in both DPM and positioning after the choke points are broken, so the GLD is there just for people who don't want to risk losing out on damage whenever they can get it. 

       

      It's obviously wrong though, but it's a fairly legitimate idea. Vents won't give you much either since final acc is already good and the biggest reason for it would honestly be for the small mobility boost it'd give rather than gun related ones. If you run optics on it there's at least a chance that you can find people at range and rack up some cleanup that way. If your aim is good then optics should generally work better since your vision is something you can play on very well with the high base VR. It's a very good equipment piece on something that is generally too slow to play on mobility. This lets you play on range a little bit better and for a tank that sucks at moving it's a pretty big plus. That's how I see it.

  4. Is it really shaming yourself though? More like a badge of pride and honor I'd say
  5. Is there any real difference between the Defender and the Obj 252U aside from the mudguards and being able to put camo paint on the Obj?

      same tenk, different paint job. if you like the RAAASSSIAAAAA paint then the Defender is pretty cool looking. 

      there is a MINOR difference in the camo values you get from applied vs preset paint from what I remember(applied paint benefits from camo skill but the preset paint scheme is a flat percentage) 

       

  6. FD_UP--It is indeed a thing!

    Good luck! This is a clan with a bunch of great guys (and gals maybe). Always a pleasure to platoon with anyone from FD_UP. They are the best worst tankers I know… j/k
  7. JE! SUS! What? Why? How? Did you by chance check the stats of all those players after the battle?

  9. LOL... no wonder WG makes the game that it makes. Kind of goes hand-in-hand with not knowing how to play your own game.
  10. So I kept track of my last 30 losses and the average loss was 5-15. I'm honestly finding it hard to even motivate myself to try anymore in this game but I know if I play without caring then I will play terribly and only be another mouth-breather on every team I'm on :(

      but doesnt the law value every unit equally? With MM spead of 3-5-7 the three top tiers are the ones to dictate the outcome the most, for good or worse. Like losing your low tier tanks in the beginning isnt really such a big deal, if you still have those top tier super heavies alive.

      Yes, that's true. It's more of a model for how steamrolls occur. It's not meant to give precise results because there are so many assumptions made (e.g. damage is continuous and each gun continuously shoots). There are more modern models, but it's a good guideline for how fucked you are when outnumbered (e.g. 15 vs 10 is really more like a 2 vs 1 than a 3 vs 2).

      Most importantly, the square law let's you make epic graphs like this for shits and giggles.

      PS - This hasn't been the most productive work day. XD

  11. So there's a clan on NA called Nova Tankers. Something is a little weird about them. A bunch of players with extremely low battle counts and ridiculous win rates. Are these super unicums from another server? Anyone notice them before?

      Nova was one of the top 10 players NA?

      I was in D1 with him for a short time

      So are all the superuni accounts just Nova? I thought that after playing with one of them on my team. 

  12. Have been watching some Russian WoT streams lately and am honestly amazed with what their players get away with. The same things would be severely punished on NA. So many on RU are just willing to drive out in front of your gun for no reason at all. Kind of makes me wish I could play on those servers instead.

      Their meta is really strange. I remember straik sitting in the middle of that bridge over the brawling area in Paris. WTF?

    2. DirtyACE7

      DirtyACE7

      I suppose because their server population is so much larger that the percentage of awful players is also much larger but even then, the levels of stupidity I saw were out of this world.

    3. hazzgar

      hazzgar

      What really surprises me is that their top players still play really good. I'd never learn shit if all I did was farm people with one brain cell

  13. A complete and utter 44% shitter on an arty doing 5k damage. Fuck these people. They need to be force fed broken glass.

    1. Action

      And surprise surprise, at least 70% of his games are in arty. Why are these people allowed to breed?

  14. WZ-111 1-4

    No I haven't read it and thanks for bringing my attention to it. Some very good info in there which I was kind of aware of in the back of my head but am not really implementing which most likely explains my troubles.
  15. WZ-111 1-4

    There’s something I’m just not getting about this tank. I have played the T-10 which is essentially the same type of tank and did very well (3k WN8 and 60%+ WR). With the WZ I do almost nothing most games and just die. I think my average damage is like around 1k only which is so horrific for a tier 9 it’s not even funny. I don’t understand what is wrong with me and this tank. I am under-performing in it to a HUGE degree.
  16. A clan of subhuman shit as I call them. One of the the things that make this game worse in every possible way. Drowning them slowly would be too good for this group of trash.
  17. Some days I feel like there's no point in even trying as arty just shits on your every single game and then you check their after battle stats and all of their shots were fired only at you. Fuck arty players and WG for having this mechanic that allows window lickers to ruin games.

      We've got to platoon again soon! It hasn't been a good week for me having time to play tanks. Hang in there!

      I will try to be on this weekend if I get over the sheer frustration I feel about the game currently. I've never rage quit but this morning I finally did.

  18. Comet fan club

    I've played the Panther, T-43, KV-13, T20 and would take all of those ahead of the Comet without a second thought. Yes, the mobility is nice and so is the gun depression. However, I simply cannot stand the almost non-existent alpha, pen, and gun handling. It's laughably underwhelming.
  19. Comet fan club

    Have come back to this bucket of trash. Doing better this time but still what a vile piece of garbage. I like the gun depression but that's about it. It's a disgusting tank in many ways.
  20. The Bond Farm

    It's always lovely how these type of events just squeeze an extra amount of trash out of the woodwork. Games are pure retard fests going either 3-15 or 15-3. Nothing in between.
  21. Team voting for turning bots blue

    This is a very good example. I too am guilty sometimes of messaging bad players especially when their actions lead to making mistakes that seem of monumental stupidity to myself but may be viewed differently by those players where perhaps it really was a difficult situation for them.
  22. Team voting for turning bots blue

    It would definitely be abused big time. Instead of bots and bot-like players, good players would be the one's punished more frequently. I'm all for banning bots and players who ruin games for others but not like this as there's just too high of a chance for friendly fire.
  23. Get ready to enrich your blacklists with this fine specimen. He will threaten and throw the match as soon as you as much click on his location on the minimap and ask for help. One of the most pettiest pieces of shit on the NA server. I have personally made it my mission to ruin the game for him whenever I see him. http://wotlabs.net/na/player/montaillou
