  1. It wasn't a jab, simply an observation based on your previous post? And yet again the question was never is it better, it was how much better?... totally different question
  2. I am not just driving around in it stock which i thought i had cleared up earlier in the thread? i am grinding the tank and have not yet got to this gun... And free xping 68k of experience isn't something i can afford to do at the moment Sorry if that makes me a burden but at the end of the day i have kids and a family and i spend the money i can spare on premium account time..i don't have the money to free xp through tanks like you obviously have..
  3. In fairness having reread my post what I asked was how much better does the top gun perform... Not as some of you have said... Is it better.. Obviously its better but I was asking peoples thoughts on how much of an improvement it would be. I also did not imply at all that I was planning to skip it... So im not sure where that came from? And where in "is the m48a1 an improvement tier for tier" does it imply I want to bypass the m46? I was merely asking if its a good tank... To me you seem to have made too many vague assumptions about my intent without even asking a question... Anyway I wont be bothering to post any further as im clearly not on your wavelengths
  4. Hi, I am curious, since when do the moderators close down a forum thread which is put in the right section just because it may or may not have been discussed in the official forums? I was under the impression a WOT based forum was for discussing WOT based subject matter? According to one of the moderators this isn't the case? Is it wrong to ask the members of the forum their opinion on a tank that has been recently buffed? I wonder if this will be binned and closed too?? Regards Paul
  5. Hi Guys, I have been grinding my way through the M46 Patton and and curious as to how much better this will get. So far i have unlocked the tracks, i just got the upgraded turret last night but haven't played with it yet.. (hopefully a big improvement?) But i am curious how the 68k xp gun performs as i am currently using the 90 pen 250 alpha gun. Does the top turret and gun transform this beast as so far my average damage per game is sitting at 1200 dpg with stock turret. I am hoping it will be a big difference! would welcome your input.. also is the revised tier 10 a significant upgrade of the M46 tier for tier? Regards Paul
  6. is this active on the EU servers already? i hadn't noticed it
  7. Well there you go, i know that i actively avoid engaging the best players early in a game and always assumed that others would be of the same opinion
  8. Lol you say about XVM focus but the truth is more people will avoid engaging a blue / purple player as they don't want their game cut short
  9. My issue is they shouldn't be giving out improved equipment as rewards (in the form of excessive bonds) which gives the already better players an unfair additional advantage... how is that fair? But then i would expect someone who is one of the people benefiting from this to defend it. If you want to be seen to be better than others more power to you but why should you have a distinct advantage? rather than just getting something that's cosmetic to flex with? You think its fair to have faster reload, better view range, better camouflage than average people? if you do then your just a fucking moron to be honest and my point is lost on you
  10. Trouble is you cant add a game mode for a game only aimed at the top 3% of players, there is very little end game content in this game as it is so to alienate 95+% of your players from a gqame mode is rediculous.. especially when the best players already have tournaments and WGL to amuse them.
  11. I understand what you mean but why should already superior players get improved equipment which just makes them even better? give them gold skins or unique camos for their tanks, not better equipment?? How can average players hope to have a chance when the already better players have hardware advantages as well as skill advantage?
  12. Hi Guys, I was just reading through the info about ranked season 2 and it seems to me as an average player that the changes to rewards is just going to discourage the average players from getting involved at all. As a 51% WR player in randoms i found that in ranked season 1 it was hard work to consistently gain ranks as it was a case of one step forward one step back. Now with season 2 they are making it even harder to gain ranks and rewarding the people who do gain ranks ie the high level players with even more bonds which in turn will widen the gap even further between those players and the average players as they will be using a lot more improved equipment. Is it just me who thinks this will just piss off the wider audience? In my opinion they should set different leagues based on the skill level of players using maybe PR, or WN8 or something similar? so at least the players will come up against players who will be comparable in skill level? I will be interested to see if you guys feel the same way? Regards. Paul
  13. Fair enough, if you have enough people you can platoon with i guess who are decent players
  14. Have been grinding through the chinese LTs and am on the tier 9 now so most of the games i have been playing lately are tier 8 and 9 But thats been the case for some time tbh Also tbh i am often one of the higher damage etc in the team so i dont think its me dragging down my win rate, i just seem to have been getting absolutely shocking teams lately, commonly having 4-5 tomatoes on my team while the opposing team has 1 and a load of blue players.. they really need to implement some sort of team levelling metric in the MM in my opinion. Something that takes the 30 players selected for the match and distributes base on their recent WN8 or something similar surely wouldn't be that hard to implement? The trouble with that is you end up then with 70% bottom tier games
  15. yeah its a bit odd, i have been playing and if i get ahead on wr quitting when the going is good whereas in the past i would have carried on playing as was confident i could keep the average up.. Its forcing me to be more cautious which i suppose if a good thing for my long term play as i do tend to be on the aggressive side
