  1. Reading reddit these days just makes the head hurt more and more. From pubbies being outraged as to why their entire team is trying to TK them for capping for no reason to idiots droning on about how premium ammo is the single biggest thing that is ruining the game. Finally, we have WoT official forums 2.0!

      It's not Wot forums 2.0 until moderators start giving out bans for minor/non-existent rule violations.

      No, we don't have that yet but the sheer levels of stupidity are starting to surpass the official forums.

      I never understood the hype for reddit. For the most part it's an inferior version of specialist forums that are dying because of facebook and reddit. Yeah on some there are a few specialists but most of the content on reddits I follow is sub par and regular clueless people get the most upvotes. I see the same for Speciality Coffee, Downhill Bikes, Asian Cousine, Movies. 

  2. Over on Reddit a pubbie posts about having a 44% recent win rate while apparently being in the top 11% of all players on the server. He is given advice as to what is most likely happening and why he can't win more. He gets butthurt as apparently that's not the kind of talk he was expecting. Christ! Pubbies these days.

      reddit went down quick, sadly wotlabs isnt doing much better... the great players are leaving, being replaced by the pubbies.

  3. I would recommend 5LINE to you but we are in about the same situation as your current clan. Activity has really tailed off and many members have moved on to either other clans or other games altogether. However, our current commander and executive officers are great chaps. I platoon with a few guys from time to time but otherwise we are pretty dead clan at the moment.

    LOL. No I meant it. I think I was getting a bit too whiny for my own good.

    Hmm... it appears you got me there. I honestly do not know what to say because that’s not how I’ve felt when playing this tank and my overall win rate in it has gone up only by 1% (to 53%) since I’ve started grinding the Obj 430. Sorry, Tanager, I know it’s not helping your cause but thanks for giving me a dose of perspective. You have humbled me sir.

    It's becoming at least as bad if not worse than the official forums. Trash as far as the eye can see.
  9. Aaaand it's locked. Good show.
  10. Raise the roof! I had a few of those in that thread with many many downvotes. It was fun to see idiots get bent out of shape. MAHOU just doing god's work.

    I just don't know what to say anymore about this tank. It's simply cursed for me. I'm having some really good games lately (started shooting APCR exclusively) in it but cannot win at all. Played 13 matches this morning. Lost 10 while being the top player by damage by a big margin, even in tier 10 games. Just game after game of being in teams where at least 1/3 of the team does 0 damage, even in top tier tanks. Makes me just want to scream and punch something. My win rate is just constantly staying at 52% in this thing even though I can do 60%+ in all other tier 8 tanks.
  12. I’m finding ranked battles to be more and more cancerous as I progress through them. It literally took me an entire night (4 hours) to progress from rank 8 to 9. I kept yo-yoing up and down with the chevrons as I would either be completely focused out by arty, or my team would evaporate in seconds, or my team would be so good that the enemy team would evaporate in seconds leaving me with no damage or kills to get. It’s just such a cancerous mode and for the first time ever, I’ve actually managed to break a mouse because of all this.

      Thanks @hazzgar :)

      I have been stepping away from ranked to take a break. I may go back this weekend and try it again. What really surprises me though is watching some other player's stream and they are running xvm and you can see players with like yellow WN8 at rank 15. WTF is up with that? I thought players like this are supposed to get filtered out as you go up the ranks but there seem to be plenty of them there.

      if you throw enough shit at the wall, eventually some of it will stick. bet those yellows have 3x the number of games to get to that rank than the blues/purples

      @DirtyACE7 they are either farming damage and use their allies as meatshields so they dont lose chevs on lost games or get the close combat bonus. I see that too. I even commented about the fact I see blue players play like total shitters because that is what works in randoms. 

  13. The link to the T-44-100 thread seems to be broken so I want to ask here what is the general consensus about this tank? Is it a straight up better version of the regular T-44?

    1. Ham_

      T-44 using the 100mm is technically a T-44-100, they're essentially the same tank and a T-44 is very competitive atm. Its a good price if you need a Russian med trainer that isn't a T-34-85M but it suffers from the fact its a tier 8 med (unlike heavies like the Lowe that can be very effective in tier 10 games).

  14. Anyone know what happened to Crabeatoff? Used to see him all the time here and in game and now he's been gone quite a while. Did he quit?

      That's too bad but I don't blame him.

    I don't remember the exact model but it's the top 100mm gun. Some games it feels good and others it just one troll shot after another.

    [NA] Returning after 4 years, want helps relearn the game.

    Do yourself a serious favor and don't come back. In those four years the game has simply kept going down hill more and more. Yes, there's the new HD maps and tanks but it's just eye candy. The game is more cancerous than ever and WG caters more and more to shitters.
  17. I find I do best in tier 8 premiums that have the kind of pen and alpha that rivals tier 10s. For example Skorpion G and WZ-120FT. I never feel out of place in these two.
  18. Am I the only one who thinks the supposed buffs to the IS-6 are just about horseshit? I mean going from 175 to 182 for pen? What is it supposed to accomplish? The tank is still going to be badly gimped facing something like a Defender or a VK100.01.

    Just how unlucky can one be? I'm at a point of ripping my hair out because of how bad the gun is constantly trolling me.

    So I just re-bought this thing because it's on sale due to Obj 140 On Track. This tank has supposedly undergone some buffing but why the fuck does it still feel like a turd? The gun especially. It's incredibly atrocious, like it's infected with some kind of RNG virus.
  21. So I've decided to try to stick with playing ranked. I got to rank 8 and feel like it's just about my limit. Should I wait until players filter through to the higher ranks and then continue? Is there any sort of strategy to playing ranked?

  22. Played ranked last night. After one night I'm thinking of quitting it again as I did with the first season. It's like pubs but significantly more cancerous and on top of it you drain credits like no one's business.

      Just aim for rank 7 - 8 and you should get ~2k bonds. That what I did last time. Took me 24 battles. Was the most efficient bond:pain ratio for me.

      I can't even go up in ranks. Well, I did get to rank 3 and then back to rank 1 :( I played 8 o r 9 battles. Lost all but one. My teams are just full of human vegetables.

  23. Playing Skorpion G on Fisherman's Bay. Go middle and literally take out the entire heavy tank push single-handedly. Do 5k damage but lose still as a third of team does zero damage. Get messaged in garage by another teammate complaining  that we lost because of those players. Look at his stats, he did 300 damage in his E 25. WTF? This game is becoming more and more of a cesspool of trash every day.

  24. So, here we have exhibit A. A shitter who is delusional to a point that he, at the beginning of the match rages that he is on a team with other shitters and then goes afk to teach everyone a lesson: Then we have exhibit B. The aforementioned shitter's clan's commander who doesn't seem to think there's anything wrong with the shitter's behavior: I guess shit breeds more shit.
  25. For those of you who have played the tier 8 Italian. Is it worth free XPing the tracks and top engine? I free XPed the top gun and turret as you don't need top tracks to mount them.

      So typically it's better to unlock the tracks first and then the engine. Is this true for this tank as well or would the engine give more benefit?

    3. HemanathanRX7

      HemanathanRX7

      Not sure if you need the tracks first to mount the engine, if not needed i would suggest the engine first, it really needs the horsepower.

    4. DirtyACE7

      DirtyACE7

      No it doesn't. It actually weighs less than the original engine.
