  1. 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on Ulltra settings i scored over 9000 My understanding is that these scored are both very healthy so it seems even an out of date rig like mine can run the new improved Wot 1.0 with no major problems I hope that helps anyone who is wondering how their rig will hold up!
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. 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..
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. is this active on the EU servers already? i hadn't noticed it
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. 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.
  14. 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?
  15. 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
