  1. I'm not sure if I'm posting this in the right subforum (apologies if I'm wrong) but I couldn't find one regarding technical questions about the game. Since the 1.0 release, is it still better to max out your 3D render resolution or keep it at dynamic adjustment? I have an old graphics card and am not sure which would better for me. It does say that selecting dynamic adjustment can improve performance but I don't know how much of that is true. Any help would be much appreciated.
  2. So are the 121B and T95E6 the tanks to get now from campaign rewards? I've been seeing various streamers recommending these two over the other tanks.

      My 2cent: mediums are kinda dead but chai isn't. 121 and E6 do not have enough armour like the 430U or the hulldown abilities of the Patton. Their guns are worse than the M60 and the M60 is faster allowing you to run and use your pubbies better. A great example is Province, but most maps work in the same way where you have a part of your team brawling and the other "supporting" (aka camping).

      Maps now are either about close engagement fights or long distance support. JOATs now are kinda bad if they dont have to ability to bully lower tiers (like the 113/5a). 

      So get the m60

      nah. I have all of them, only reward tank I don't have is the VK. M60 is the worst easily. it doesn't have enough armour, even hulldown. its too big and fat. even though it got buffed it still suffers from being vastly inferior to the M48. the only thing it has over say, an Action X, is gun handling. not even reload. (7.4 W/rammer and vents)

      plus the T95E6 and 121B have the bonus of being fairly unique. M60 is just a worse M48, 907 is just another RU med.

      Only have the M60 but whilst it is no meta tank, it's much more fun now and super comfy. Plus I think it is the coolest of the other lot, it's an iconic tank not some blueprint tank.

      Gun is amazing, mobility is top notch, you have view range, gun depression, heat round to punish super heavies but no armour so it's not meta.

    Thanks for your input guys!

    Graphics settings

    I'm actually trying to run as little of the eye candy as possible without giving up the important stuff. Playing on standard graphics. Also has anyone tested the different settings for sound? There's a setting for low quality sound. Is it worth using this or does it take away too many audio cues?
  5. Been watching liquidator on the RU server play the Progetto 65. There's something about that tank that makes me want it really bad.

      @NightmareMk9 I was actually talking about the tier 10 but you're right, the premium tier 8 is also really nice and I would love to get it but I also vowed not to give any more money to WG for the time being until they resolve various issues.

    3. NightmareMk9

      NightmareMk9

      yeah, I'm dumb.  I only have 2 games in the standard tier 8 and the 2-shot gun just isn't the same...

    Great news indeed, at least for the time being. Let's not throw all of our praises away just yet and see what this new guy actually does because we may be just trading one kind of evil for another.

    FD_UP--It is indeed a thing!

    Hello to all my FD_UP comrades! I've been away from the game for 3 months and now may be back
  9. 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.
  10. What century do we live in where two dudes can't suck each other off while playing some tonks?
  11. 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.

    3. DirtyACE7

      DirtyACE7

      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.

  12. Is it really shaming yourself though? More like a badge of pride and honor I'd say
  13. 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?

    1. kreigermann

      kreigermann

      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)

    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
  15. JE! SUS! What? Why? How? Did you by chance check the stats of all those players after the battle?

  17. 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.
  18. 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.

    3. monjardin

      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

  19. 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. 

  20. 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

      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

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

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

    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.

    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.
