  1. Uhm, this site has been out of order for me fo like the whole year. I don't get any updates at all and neither seem anyone else because the overall stats seem to be frozen (number of games per ships per server does not change at all for EU).
  2. Bug. Sub_Octavian said so. The change will be reverted BUT Sub also said that WG noted how many people liked the ability to punish broadsiding BBs more and will be looking into it.
  3. French BB Impressions

    Got the Lyon froma mission and free exped to the Richelieu, kitted the captain I had from the DeGrasse with BFT/AFT and all secondarie modules and took her (stock) to co-op. Lol. This thing is really good for that, being so fast you can easily get into brawling range (which bots seem to favor anyways). Secondaries are meh for damage but glorious for ribbons. Only downside so far - lost a turret once or even twice in pretty much every match... If I have upgraded her hull and finished the ribbon part of the campaign I will see wether this ship is any good for random - I predict it won't push NC and Amagi from the tier VIII BB throne for me.
  4. Operation Hermes

    Me too. The best course for this is imho to wait a few days till the pubbies got the basic grasp of what to do and then grap the best ship. I 5 starred all of the recent operations this way at the first try. Yes, I get little joy out of shooting up mindless bots so I only play operations to get the rewards.
  5. Forum Software Updated

    Nice, thx a lot.
  6. And thats why it won't happen even if WG would love to do it. Tier disparities are atrocious in WoT (you realize this once you play WoWS where tier -2 ships can totally make top tiers regret their life choices) and before you do anything to prem ammo you first need to adress this. Additionally the difference between tank types is just to small (also unlike WoWS where ship types are VERY different to each other). We have so many "heavies" that are more meds than heavies and vice versa. Fastish meds that are more like LTs, TDs that are more like heavies and so on and so forth. In other words WoT is a MM-balancing nightmare and 3/5/7 is pretty much the proverbial bandaid.
  7. Slay the Spire

    ...in a newbie group. Indeed, you can get far with the very basic "buy Province whenever you can, else buy the best money, else do nothing" but usually not in a group that knows how to play (unless the Kingdom card selection really sucks). I am 12 hours in a won 5 times now, only played the Ironclad so far. However my last three runs were all wins. The key to consistency is to tae every chance to trim your deck and only take cards that REALLY help you. I did end with less than 20 cards each. Also if you unlocked all the cards, it gets easier as some cards are VERY strong when build for (such as "double your current strength" - 500 damage Heavy Blade incoming).
  8. Slay the Spire

    Cheapish game that really really got me like no game since years. A lot of fun for the moneyz, quite relaxing and addictive at the same time. For those living under a rock: It's basically a card game where you build your decks and fight against various NPC monsters as you work your way up floor by floor to get as far as you can before losing all your hitpoints.
  9. I really hope they hurry up fixing full AP pens on DDs. respecced my Khaba to smoke again and the average damage skyrockets bc the heal just can't keep up with the massive BB AP pen damage you eat.
  10. How's Everyone Doing?

    WG has seemingly found their preferred "balance" of skill and luck for WOT and they are sticking to it. The game is aimed at the mid age tank fan and as such WG all but removed the vision based playstyle but retained the unforgiving nature of the tier system (tier VI tank oneshot to many tier VIII tanks...). A new MM system tries to fix the "pyramid on it's head" problem (more tier X tanks in the queue than tier IX tanks) by the 3-5-7 default spread. This means you are only very rarely top tier now but if you are you get to really carry the game as only one of 3 tier X tanks. Most often however you are in all tier X battles (or you are one of the seven tier VIII tanks to feed some luckers in ther tier Xs). Current updates are mostly fluff to keep the masses entertained. Some new tanks are hilarious (but not necessarily strong) and some new features are mildly interesting (suspension on swedish TDs, upcoming reloader on italian tanks) butdon't change the game. Maps are still the same from where you left... Yes, really. 1.0 will add a lot of visual fluff to them however but that will only change how thegame looks (which everyone will be in rave about only to stop minding after a few battles). Aaand, thats about it. WG is playing it ultra safe with their cash cow and who can blame them, the WoT of now is prettier than the WoT of old but also more linear and definetely not anything new.
  11. Ranger

    When I feel the need for the occasional CV game I seal club play the Ryuio. Ample tier VIII games do a lot to balance you but if you are top tier against the usual incompetent Indi you have those 100k+ damage games without too much effort.
  12. WG said end of February. 7.2 will be a rather small patch compared to 7.1 so I don't think they will need a lot of time.
  13. Ranger

    Ranger can compete with 2/2 Saipan IF said Saipan can't strafe. Yeh, sounds weak as heck but I met a lot of Saipas that couldn't strafe, so theres that. The real problem imho is the Kaga. His Fighters can tie up yours long enough and often enough so that the Kaga can realize it's INSANE strike potential. So regardless of what you do, the Kaga can simply outdamage you and a well played Kaga will also hard to beat in the AS war.
  14. The RN BBs are not so much terribly OP overall but rather extremely foolproof. Afaik the russians LOVE this line - best line every made... Type 5 heavy says hello. In reality a good player can often do more in a Montana or even a Yamato and at least I saw more of those in Typhoon than Conqs.
  15. Let's test: COSSACK SUCKS, OMG, OMG. Seriously, what is WG thinking? Putting a worse copy of an existing ship with no redeeming features and no testable gimmicks into Supertest is accomplishing what? There is nothing to test with the Cossack, community said it sucks by just browsing the stats but, no, WG needs all supertesters to totally thrash the ship on top of that.
