    Tracking team WN8 over a series of matches

    It happens quite frequently. I don't run xvm but it say 4 or every 10 battles I'd get focused and I'm fucking useless at this game! I'd notice it in certian games that I'm get shit on constantly and after the game I'd check the stats. Low and behold I'd be the "best player" on the team statistically. I was tooning with Vindi a few weeks ago in tier 8's, we ended up in a tier 10 game. We were in the centre of that ice map humping the ridge, popping off shots at the enemy crossing. The IS7 on our team drive's right up over the ridge and sits there trying to hit targets. The 3 arty on the enemy team completely ignored him and spent the entire time shitting on our tier 8 platoon behind the IS7 (Vindi is purple or very close to purple). So a quick stats check afterwards showed the IS7 was a 47%'er... I can totally see why better players than me would hate this game and can in particular xvm. It's fucking cancer! The best decision I ever made in this game was to stop using it.
  2. Any of you playing SCUM? It's an interesting game, still very early in development,  I picked it up a few months ago for like 10 quid or something.  It's a zombie survival type game.  But it's a little more complex than at first glance. The health system is excellent.  It gives you data on everything,  carbs, sfats, salt, all your vitamins and minerals etc.  You have to shit and piss regularly,  it's crazy. I've been learning the ropes on a PVE server and the player base there are super friendly.  Everyone helps each other out, whether it's how to craft things or find things or just trading with each other for useful items. I recommend you check it out, well worth the price of purchase.  It's a nice break from the grind that is tenks...

      Heard of it, watched the E3 presentation, but as much as I love DD I simply don't find the genre fun.

      took me longer than expected that you are not talking about arty.

WG just give this tank a pen buff and make it somewhat viable again! All the other auto loaders do it's job way better than it. What do you guys think it needs buff wise to make it good again?

    Elimination: Tier 9 - 2018

    Can someone please update my votes for Jagdtiger and T54E1. To 19 and 9 respectively. It's hard to copy and pasta everything on mobile. Thanks. Conway 11-3= 8 I'm going to break my own rule here by voting for something I don't own, but this thing has no place on this list period! I came up against one of these again last night while tooning with @Vindiand we mauled it. We caught him in a bad spot and he could literally do nothing. I popped up on his side while he was looking forward and got 2 shots into him in my Caernarvon before he even pointed his turret at me. Seconds later he was dead and we steamrolled on. I think this is a bit of a hipster tank. Imo it's beyond useless. T10 30+1= 31 I used to like this tank when it was the IS8, I know it was considered mediocre back then, but I still liked it. It was my first tier 9 and I've never sold it. So it was just a bonus when they turned it into the T10. What can you say about it really. It's just good at most things and can help limit the "shit map" issues some tanks have, as you can almost always find a place or role for it on any map. An excellent all rounder imo.

    The Conway is easy to deal with. As long as it's not pointing it's BOOM stick directly at you it's just a hitpoints pinata. You can pen the thing everywhere which means half aimed shots are viable if you have decent base pen. I think that hurts the Conway even more as it takes 3 weeks to aim it fully...

    Jagdtiger 18+1= 19. Same reasons as yesterday really. Good gun and dpm etc. If you choose your victims wisely it's a devastating tank. I'll admit it's a team dependent tank, if you get isolated it's game over as it's easy knock it out. At my level I'm dependant on my team in most tanks so it's a mute point. T54E1 12-3= 9. My old friend, it's so sad to watch this tank fall from where it was. Back in the day, it was a little monster. Decent mobility, decent burst, excellent gold round, ok to make it work consistently you had to spam gold and it bled credits, but it was fun to play. In today's meta it's useless unfortunately. WG could really do with showing it some love. I'd buy it back in a heartbeat if the buffed it sufficiently. But as of today, it has no place on this list. :-(

    Ahh ok. So what is the "best tank" is well above my pay grade. What is the best tank "in peoples opinion" is what the thread is about. Carry on them :-)

    Elimination: Tier 9 - 2018

    Fucking hell, my head hurts reading this thread now. This is turning into tank philosophy. I've actually lost track of what the argument even was at this stage. I think @Kolni made a point along the lines of "he'd prefer to see a less skilled player in something like a T95" for all the obvious reasons. I get that, it makes perfect sense.... Can we please put away the E-penis's and just carry on. Us shitters are taking notes here, if you could keep on topic that would be great.

    Elimination: Tier 9 - 2018

    I can only vote for what I have played so the list is short for me. M103 5-3= 2 I've not played it in years, but I hated it even before the super heavy meta. After moving from the super comfy T32 this thing was just Aids! Even with the top gun unlocked it was still shit. Poke it's big fat fucking head over a ridge and you got murdered by almost everything same tier or higher than you. The cheeks were easy to hit and gold is almost auto pen, the commander hatch is easy to hit, the hull is dog shit, the tank is slow. There are tier 8 heavies that are better than it ffs! I don't own the Emil but I agree with others that it's probably worse than the M103, based on experience fighting them. Jagdtiger 17+1= 18. I'll stay away from the obvious finalists for now. But this is a solid TD imo. I think it does well in the corridor meta too. The gun is fantastic and packs a punch, ok the armour profile isnt tye best but it can bounce stuff if you wiggle. Mobility isn't great,but if you're driving it to the front line it's the wrong place for it imo. Saying super heavies shit on it is a little harsh as super heavies shit on everything anyway. If you can find the right position with views onto a couple of different lines this tank can be devastating.

    SU-130PM Soviet Tank Destroyer

    It's Russian. It will move like a T54, it will have no issue's hitting snap shots..while traveling at 50kmh, with the turret traversing, it will also be fitted with a cloaking device. The most played tank world wide is the Skorp? Not for long..
  13. Just use a pliers to grip the outside of the screw, they shouldn't be that tight. Just be super careful you don't touch the pcb board with the pliers as you'll really fuck the card up. Hold the card side on so you can see a gap between the pliers and the pcb board. Change out your paste, then use 2 of you good screws to refit the cooler. Screw in the damaged one with your hand and the other good screw. A small nip with the pliers on the damaged screw is all you need to hold it.
  14. "My idle temps without MSi Afterburner's custom fan speeds are terrible being around 70-75 degrees Celsius" Fucking he'll that is insanely high for an ideal temperature. I'd agree with others above, the thermal paste is fucked or your fan/fans are faulty. It's simple to change the paste on the GPU. Just make sure you use a non conductive paste. Also you can put more paste on a GPU chip than a CPU so the "grain of rice size bit of paste" doesn't apply. Put a nice blob on and don't over tighten the cooler when you put it back on. That's a common mistake people make. It warps the cooler and it doesn't sit properly. I had really high idle temps on an R9 290x, changed the paste and say a 30c drop.
