  1. Hi all, Is the stat tracking on wotlabs working right? I only ask because for some reason my Wn8 scored in the last week seem to be a lot higher than i was expecting them to be based on how well i have been playing? Is there a problem and should i therefore stop looking at the wn8 stats here? Many thanks, Paul

    Why arent the stats updating on WOTLABS?

    Hi guys, Is anyone else having issues with the stats not updating on wotlabs? Seems to be the same on Wotstats as well but not sure why? anyone know? Regards, Paul
  3. Ok i have just looked at the revised info on this and it looks like its more as follows Best DPM based on 9.59 reload is 1500 DPM If you fully unload clip it would be as follows i think 9.59+11.83+14.07+16.3 meaning 51.79 seconds to reload for 960 Damage which is totally crippling you if you unload. They need to seriously reconsider the reload times on this as its looking like it will be totally gimped based on this
  4. I think you have misunderstood, the more you have loaded the faster the reload so with 2 loaded it takes 8 seconds for the 3rd to load, if you empty your clip, the first shell takes 14 seconds to load, the 2nd 11 and the 3rd 8 seconds giving a total reload time of 33 seconds So it means you need to be careful about unloading From the video i watched it was a 3 shell clip, and with best case 8 second reload that's only 1800 DPM based on 240 Alpha and 7.5 rounds per minute unless i'm missing something?

    RX 480 GPU - Still causing crashes in WOT or sorted now?

    A little update, i ran the encore test on my system last night and my spec is as follows : I5 3570 @ 4ghz 16gb Ram GTX 670 2gb SSD System disk My results were as follows : On Medium settings at 1920 x 1080 i scored over 27k points on Ulltra settings i scored over 9000 My understanding is that these scored are both very healthy so it seems even an out of date rig like mine can run the new improved Wot 1.0 with no major problems I hope that helps anyone who is wondering how their rig will hold up!

    RX 480 GPU - Still causing crashes in WOT or sorted now?

    Thanks for this, i had been considering the GTX 970 but had been considering the RX480 for the mining potential as i thought about trying that if i got it lol I also was aiming toward the WOT 1.0 high definition maps and if the extra memory might benefit running it at higher resolutions? Hi Tman, Thanks for your feedback, have you run the simulation to see how it copes with WOT 1.0? Thanks, Paul
  7. Hi Guys, I am looking to upgrade my GPU and have been offered an RX480 but when i googled it seems there were a lot of crash issues with WOT? does anyone know if these issues were ever resolved or if its an ongoing problem for this card? On paper the performance looks great compared to my current GTX 670 but as WOT is the only game i play regularly it needs to work? Can anyone offer personal experience of this card? Thanks, Paul
  8. 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
  9. 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..
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. 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

    WoT new personal rating system

    is this active on the EU servers already? i hadn't noticed it
  14. 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
  15. 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
