  1. Go figure the one time I actually wanted to lose to get a better chance of the 25% team dmg mission I couldn't 70% win rate over 40 games last night and still only got 1 nation a loss no less.
  2. Get the 212A as the mission requirements get easier the higher tier you are. Not only for the higher hp pools but the higher avg damage dealt as well...if a jpze100 shoots something you stunned thats almost half the amount you needed right there.
  3. Super heavy tank also equates to super slow which is a no go on todays battlefields. Also the addition of reactive armor kinda makes super thick armor obsolete....equal or better protection for way less weight. The current version of the M1 Abrams would be what a modern super heavy would look like. Can keep up with convoys with a decent top speed and near invulnerable from the front. Its still a little too immobile imo. Last wargames the NATO nations held the German Leopard crews ran literal circles around the Abrams crews. Some of that might have been sub par tank tactics training as the M1's would basically just sit in one spot and barely move while the Leopards were like racecars zipping around the battlefield. Mobility and ability to fire quickly and accurately is becoming the new norm.
  4. Does the "every 300 games or so drop in WR" match up with say event weekends? Just a thought...we generally have one whether it's a popular on track or whatever every 2-3 weeks or so. My stats usually see a slight drop during those too.
  5. Congrats! It does take some hard work to get that high. Even more so on the account you started the game with vs rerolling like everyone else does. Once i get some more consistency in my games I'll be there.
  6. Yasenkraken works great for that tracks daily wn8 plus more you would never think to care about....if you don't know where to get it you go.
  7. Maybe he wants advice on how to play them in today's super heavy meta and not from a 4 year old thread...or maybe he's lazy....who knows. I'll bite. Use vents, optics and rammer for equipment plus prioritize view range/camo over other skills because when you're in t8 games (cromwell) you're essentially a scout. You can get around 440 on the move view range once you have BIA and both view range skills maxed. The dpm can be awesome at times but it does require you to sit still to actually hit stuff. Early game dont trade shot for shot....try to get 1 shot off then back in those hit points for later in the match when there's more room to move around and you can put your view range and camo to good use. Secondly always be moving around....this means if you go to one flank and its all armored targets that you cant really pen easily then go somewhere have the speed to relocate if need be. Last but not least try to work with your team to gang up on enemy tanks. If you see them eat a shot from a tank that's by themselves and has a long reload dont be afraid to peek and get a few shots in. Learn other tanks reloads etc etc same stuff thats been said on here time and time will make a much better player on other tanks as well. Its the difference in getting 2-3 shots in for their 1 vs trading 1 for 1 and most tanks will beat the cromwell/comet in that regard. Play it like a light tank and you should do well.
  8. So starting to learn what xvm focus is all about with these teams today.....i mean really 3 tanks drive right past 5 allied tanks and yolo suicide rush just to kill me.   We won the game but fml getting damage today is like pulling teeth.

      The better you become the more you will deal with this kind of crap. I honestly never really understood until getting to where I am now and I experience it much much more than when I was a worse player.

      Yeah I think I was so used to being able to be aggressive at the start of the match getting spots/vision with xvm camo and now being 1st spotted means every pubbie wants a piece.   Just gotta adjust my play style I guess.   I just feel like if I don't then none of them will....

  9. I swear it's like you guys want this site to die off and shut down. Without new users and traffic theres no ad revenue. Without any ad revenue the site gets shut down unless somebody else wants to foot the bill for Never. Stop being so hostile to new people posting or say goodbye to your favorite WoT site.
  10. Being aggressive doesnt mean throwing away your hp though. If you can, build your mediums and lights for pure on the move view range so you can spot for your team. Yes we play in a heavy corridor meta atm but the extra vr will help burn through camo and give your team something to shoot at. Also pay attention to your map...if you see the opposite flank getting overrun or the same is about to happen to you then there's no shame in going back to a safer spot where you can keep your gun in the fight.
  11. Yeah whats weird is there's a 5000 game gap in the tables where the curve drops off. Maybe it's just the language barrier and he didn't adequately explain himself at first, but maybe he's trying to say his old crappy stats are being added on after the newer stats. Something seems off about that graph though.
  12. I find encounter battles to be better for wn8 farm more than win rate. Its luck of the draw half the time getting a team that know how to play the map in encounter vs random battle.
  13. On a side note today is the 25th anniversary of Sir Mixalot's "Baby Got Back" So get out there, and reverse sidescrape your hearts out. Maybe thats why all tanks in our garage have their rear facing you by default in the garage today...
  14. Anybody else not able to load  A day late and they still can't meet their 2nd deadline....their webhosting is crap...slowest loading site (if it loads) that ive seen in years.

      Hiya! There is currently an issue with Tankrewards. The site was up yesterday and this morning; they are working on the issue and trying to get it back up and running as quickly as possible. Sorry!

  15. American or RU seems to be the way to go for hi tier arty. The Obj 261 is almost as mobile as the BC, accurate as far as arty goes, and has good alpha dmg. The american line seems to be strong in the mid tiers and the T92 speaks for itself. Accuracy can be troll sometimes least you have splash. French arties have the lowest HE dmg out of all their peers which is really felt in T9-T10 when you start seeing more super heavies and heavily armored TD's. As in hitting an E-100, JPZ, Maus, STI, etc for 100-200 dmg per direct hit...
