  1. So is the standard strategy when you start a new line is to dismiss the existing captain who has no skills and recruit one for 25 gold that comes with 3 skills? Yes, I do have a premium account and a couple premium ships (Gullio Cesare and Scharnhorst). I guess I'll use the 200k credit option as I just found out that you can just retrain your captain by putting them on the premium ships without any penalty. I'm a decent player in WoT but in WoWs it seems that I'm very much a potato still.
  2. I'm a new-ish player as I actually started playing in 2015 but then stopped since I was focusing a lot more on WoT. Anyway, I just restarted playing WoWs again and am a bit confused about captains. Is it worth it to start from tier 1 and keep the captain moving up or should I not bother with moving them up until I reach a certain tier? I ask because it looks like it costs quite a lot to keep retraining your captain 250 gold or 200k credits. And if I do have to retrain, which option should I go with?
  3. Good weekend. Pulling a 40% win rate. Broke a mouse and almost lost my voice. I'm at a breaking point with this game. Want to completely quit :(

      If it isn't fun, don't play.

      Yeah it's getting to a point where I don't just not want to play but to just abandon the game completely. Didn't think it would come to this point but here it is.

      40%? That's very good considering that on my bad days I'm pulling 20% with all battles being 0-15 in 2 minutes. Basically you can't do anything but to wait to get gangbanged by 6 tanks.

    Comprehensive “Best Tank for Mission” List

    I cannot seem to complete the T-55A TD mission where you have to do 4 times more damage than your HP. I got the SU-100 as per recommendation for this mission but this tank is so awful mainly because the gun is beyond trash. Fully aimed shots not penning or even hitting at all a lot of the time. And you can't play it like an assault gun as it has no armor or the HP to do it. What do I do?
  5. Have been watching Sh0tnik on the RU server. Highly recommend it to anyone who understands Russian (and even those that don't). He is an ex-pro who played for the famous team NSS for most of his career. The dude is simply a fantastic player but wait, there's more. He actually describes (as he plays) in very good detail what he is doing and why he is doing it. It's like getting a lesson in tanks every single stream.

      I have no doubt about the guy's talent but running 3 pieces of improved equipment and rammer directive on a t-44-100 is more commitment than I am willing to make.

      Really? That's your argument? It's like people ranting that someone is shooting premium ammo "too much". Common man. I know you are better than that.

    Object 430 Appreciation and Boasting Thread

    I just bought this tank with the Gamescom discount. Is it recommended to run a GLD? Seems the gun handling is a bit meh.
  8. Team killing shitter. Likes to play arty and randomly team kill players at the end of the match.

    The Official Unofficial 13 57(GF) Lover Masochists' Thread

    I've been waiting for this tank to come back on sale as I have been wanting it for a while now. Is it recommended to run a GLD instead of optics?
  10. Some days you wake up and wonder what cancer looks like. Then later that same day you actually come face-to-face with it: I actually had to make an exception and clear a space for him in my blacklist. Too big of a trashbag not to be added. Plus like typical arty he drowned himself at the end of the match. I may actually end up being banned for 24 hours soon if I come across him again. TK on the fucking spot.
  11. 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. 

  12. 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.

      INB4 he has 11% MOE on his Type 5. 

      Gotta pump up those numbers bois! Ya'll are slackin'!

  13. 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.

    T-44 undervalued

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

    T-44 undervalued

    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.

    Reddit reacts to Wotlabs reacts to MAHOU tking arty

    It's becoming at least as bad if not worse than the official forums. Trash as far as the eye can see.
  19. Aaaand it's locked. Good show.
  20. 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.

    T-44 undervalued

    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.
  22. 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. 

  23. 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).
