  1. Tooning helps in these situations as you can eliminate up to two more possibly bad and unpredictable players from your own team and replace them with two reliable teammates. This is the solution I've found that works practically every time during these types of weekends.
  2. I usually platoon with my clan mates. Have never used the Wotlabs channel though.
  3. I think one of the keys to doing better than usual during these x5 and x3 or just on weekends in general is to platoon, preferably with at least decent players. I platooned this weekend and managed around a 65% win rate for Saturday and Sunday combined, although at one point we were winning something like 90% and then we got a stream of absolute shit eating teams.
  4. I approach credit grinding the same was as @dualmaster333. Just activate one of the 50% credit boosters for a couple hours and play high-alpha and/or high-penetration tanks. My preferred ones are the T26E5, M46 KR, and M4A1 Revalorise. The M4A1 is by far my most played premium, just wish it had a bit more pen on it's standard round.
  5. Play in my M103 on Fjordes. Go to the usual heavy area on H line. Have three teammates with me, E75, T110E4, and T110E5. I'm thinking to my self alright we should be good. Come up to the corner and take a quick peek. I see a Jagdtiger, Type 5, E75 and Pz IV WT. Take a quick snapshot at the JT before my teammates arrive. They arrive and first the E4 rolls out, gets hit by all of their thanks and is dead. Then the E75 rolls out, gets hit by all of their tanks and is dead. Then the E5 rolls out, gets hit by all their tanks and is dead. I'm alone in less than a minute. WTF IS HAPPENING??? They literally rolled out one by one and died. Not a single one did any damage. Pubbies, possibly the most retarded life forms on the planet.

      it took me forever to get my wins last night because of thus...

      i ended up being very, very upset at the stupidity

    2. DirtyACE7


      It is truly astounding at the levels of idiocy on display in this game. I understand that this is a free to play game and so will attract a certain demographic, perhaps. But my god, it seems to attract some sort of sub-human demographic 80% of the time.

      lol... I was on the receiving end of the yolorapetrain so often last night I just ended up using myself as bait behind higher tier friendlies..the moment I was lit and they'd still hit W, shit pants and die just to do one shot of damage to me.  I'm not even anywhere close to purple.. what is this shit?!

  6. You say he doesn't bother looking up guides and plays only on his free time, which usually means sporadically. Those are typically not actions of someone who is looking to improve and this is not exactly one of those games where you just read some guide and bingo you got it. So the first question you have to ask is, does your friend actually want to improve? Does he care?
  7. In my ST-I this morning on Highway. Start from south spawn and go towards the city. In chat someone makes a comment "well at least our ST-I isn't shit". I didn't really think much of it until my teammates started dropping like flies with stage 4 cancer. Then these shitters started giving me grief for not carrying them to victory. I ended up with 4k damage and not a single other teammate managed to do more than 600 and a third did 0 damage. Fuck the literal piles of trash that make up at least 80% of the player base in this game.

    1. Fulcrous


      Blame the guy that tried to win even though we played to lose!

    2. hazzgar


      Yeah the idiots always blame the guy with the most damage not the top tier dweeb with 0 dmg

  8. So for these Tanksgiving missions, can you win only one of the three premiums or all three? I ask because I did one of the missions today for the T34B and then it looked as if I couldn't do any of the other missions?

      Yes, I know they are limited to countries and I selected a German tank to do the Mutz mission but it seemed like it couldn't be done. Like it was unavailable.

    3. king_spaniel


      @DirtyACE7 make sure you are doing the Mutz missions while in a Japanese, Swedish, or German tank that's tier 4+.  If that isn't working, then something must be broken because of their shitty patches

      For the T34B, it must be either a French, UK or USA tank

    4. DirtyACE7


      I'm going to try again later tonight. Maybe something is broken.

      I think I'll focus on the T34 and IS-6 though as the Mutz missions seem much more time consuming.

  9. I'm a native Russian speaker and so I watch probably just as many Russian WoT streamers as I do English ones. Among many Russian streamers and just really good players in general, there's a belief that WG has special RNG for the bad players, like those with 47% WR and below. For example it allows them to hit more shots without fully aiming (aka snapshots), bounce more enemy shells and live longer while being a one-shot. These players are usually referred to as “Kislyi’s agents”. It’s interesting and kind of crazy just how prevalent this belief seems to be on the RU server.
  10. Being completely honest, is it really worth doing a premium tank trade?

      @Assassin7 Directly in the client's tech tree. 

    3. Assassin7


      oh ok. cool


      edit: hmm thats cool, though theres nothing in the tech tree I want and nothing I have that I want particularly less, But great to have a choice. maybe my TOG will be useful for something after all..

    4. breeeze


      not really tbh, its really only a 50% discount to keep you buying the latest meta premiums, not even much of a discount if you consider that prems can be up to 30% off.

  11. In my Rudy, trying to brawl a 112. Three teammates (T34, T29, VK 100.01) just there not 50 meters from me twirling their thumbs. I continuously ask for help but it's like talking to a wall.

    1. nabucodonsor


      I'd kill those guys with nerve gas. I mean why the fuck you play with a heavy if you dont want to brawl.  Uh yeah i have armour and big guns let's not use it, then complain in the forum that my heavy tank cant bounce in a 1vs5.  

    2. Cunicularius


      Well, you should never expect your team to do anything it isn't already immediately doing.

    3. ThomChen114


      Russian bias didn't save you?

      if only the 112 was firing HE, as some anus lickers i've encountered tend to do.

  12. I think he was having an aneurysm.
  13. Enemy T-44 trying to escape from our push by trying to cross the river on Erlenberg. I shoot and track him while he is still submerged and he drowns. Reported for unsportsmanlike conduct. Get a msg after battle from him raging at me for hacking by doing what I did. I then told him that I also reported him for drowning. Rage intensifies and so do the LOLs.

  14. They can add those things to the already existing fee you pay for premium as they already make a healthy profit from the game. If you want to enable a greedy company continue being greedy as WG have been proven to be over and over and over, then go right ahead. If you want them to nickle and dime you to death, then it's up to you.
  15. Nope, I would not pay for that. Let's not give WG anymore ideas that they can charge money for and gradually make this game more and more pay to play.
  16. LOL... Wargaming, where decisions are made based on the color of the most recently eaten crayon.
  17. Amazing how WG can roll back time back to the stone age so that all the troglodytes can plague the game on the weekends.

  18. LOL… wow! Just wow! What a demented potato! How are these people not locked away in a room with padded walls?
  19. So is M-I-T now technically a training clan for 5LINE or just affiliated with 5LINE?
  20. 11 shots fired, 2 pens

    15 shots fired, 4 pens

    This is my ST-I this morning


    1. clownshoes2


      Press 2 for penetration.

    2. DirtyACE7


      I did press 2 for penetration. That's saddest part about it. How can it be so bad? *cries harder*

    3. DirtyACE7


      I just don't know anymore. Today I can everything and keep rolling off one amazing game after another in this tank. Even completed HT 15-2 while getting a top gun and high caliber and steel wall.

  21. I have unlocked this tank a couple days ago and have to say, it is a sweet and justified reward for having to trudge through the KV-4 aka the trash can of tier 8. It feels great to play a tank that you can simply push and bully your enemies with and they can pretty much do nothing about it if you are positioned well.
  22. Yeah Randoms already take up a lot of time and effort and rewards for it are much much greater, those being mainly going up tiers and unlocking better and better vehicles (for the most part). The credit sink is already there as well the higher you go but not as bad as Ranked Battles. So really, playing ranked is just about like playing randoms but with considerably more downsides and not nearly enough upsides. Right now Ranked actually feels worse than what Rampage was. WG needs to seriously ramp up the rewards/incentives for average players at the very least because that will pretty much determine whether this mode lives or dies. If it's being played mainly by the unicums, then unfortunately it will have a pretty short lifespan. Whether any of of us want to really believe it or not, the game is steered in the direction by what an average player does or wants or needs.
  23. Is it just me or does this mode simply not inspire one to play it? I guess it's better in some ways but really not in any way that creates a solid incentive to actually want to participate in it. The larger than normal credit sink is still there and the rewards are just meh to justify the time, effort and credits.
