  1. I can't get a win in this thing to save my life sub 40% WR, so how are you supposed to play this thing ELI5 please?
  2. Yeah I can't imagine what goes through the minds of people who play this game consistently enough to reach that WN8 I get pissed off enough with it's RNG and arty as a green after a week.
  3. Traded in skorpion for chinese td and liberte for 112. Hoping pref mm premiums get buffed at some point but idk why I play this game still arty so irritating.
  4. Bombers late night are quite relaxing dunno if that will change when get experienced to their shenanigans but so for the tier 3 one is easy peasy credits and xp just meandering around bombing stuff at 3k metres, it's a braindead class like arty but it doesn't feel dirty since it doesn't ruin other players matches.
  5. I like it so far it's a lot less stressful than WoT even when I get stomped by my bots derping out or the other humans being not so hot because I get to play practically the entire match often. Decided against unlocking the tier 7 US Navy fighter and got the tier 7 heavy fighter instead not used it yet but it seems promising from fighting them in a Meteor.
  6. So unlike most people who use premium 8s for crew training I use them for earning free exp so I can skip to tier 8 elited out tanks so I was wondering if I should buy back my M46 Patton and M103 and use those for earning free exp instead of using the Defender and Patriot considering that tier 8s now almost always go against tier 9 and 10s, credit earning is not a consideration atm really.
  7. Yeah those bots seem to have incredible accuracy, heavy fighter bots are downright deadly if they get on you which makes zeroes and the like shit as they're rendered helpless to help take a cap vs heavy fighter bots up at 2000m. I'm wondering if they intend to phase out GA or something with the introduction of bomber lines coming mentioned in the devblog.
  8. I fail a lot at the suicide before squall line, so hard to carry when you're down to 50hp in the last 2 minutes in a close game because some bot beaufighter got on your arse for 4 seconds, they should remove it I think it feels like serves no real purpose that can't be done by tuning point gain from caps. I'm getting off corsair line at tier 7 to go for F7F because it has a long boost but that's not good for much when it only has 1200m optimum alt with so so manoeuvring.
  9. Played 50 battles and at 60% WR right now so I may be doing something right compared to others, which I think is picking planes that can at least go high enough to kill the heavy fighter defence bots and focussing on taking and then stubbornly holding the correct cap point for the whole game. I die often enough that my respawn can reach 45 seconds but unless it's a complete steamroll I always get around 8-10k+ points, heavies are what kills me the most followed by simply being outnumbered with no wingman to clear my tail since autoaim makes it hard to shake enemies for long. Observations are that US Navy line seems a bit weak but usable tier 6 the cannons do good damage but overheat so fast, heavy fighters are god tier and interceptors S tier, low altitude turn fighters are F tier if you want to do more than farm noobs who turnfight in BF110s at 600m.
  10. Bought the M46 and the M103 because Kolni said it can do okay even if it's worse than other US heavy, atm though Warplanes is sucking down my time.
  11. Oh so it's the T-64 predecessor design in WoT, should be quite powerful then but the tier 9 gold rounds looks worthless for anything you'd want a gold round for.
  12. This mode really needs either a big boost to credits so the mandatory "feeling" gold ammo and prem consumables don't cause you to lose 500k credits a night or otherwise only no lifers who can prem tank grind and play ranked and whales buying fort knox packages each week will be able to remain competitive.
  13. Hey so now I've got my new PC and can play this game properly I'm wondering if I should rush to unlock a couple tier 10s before ranked comes in with that crazy enhanced equipment and special temp bonuses since it's tier 10 only. Closest tanks I have to tier 10 are the M103(2 skills), M46(2 skills), Strv 103-0(full female crew), the STRV is just missing the gun upgrade others are full upgraded, I also have a fully upgraded IS3(2 skills), Emil 1 (full female crew) and an STA-2( 1 female) that I was gathering female crew for just got to do all the arty and LT missions, last 2 TD missions for remaining female crew for it as I have no other Japanese crew with even 1 skill. So with those lines being fairly well progressed which would be best picks to advance for ranked? I was thinking maybe going for M48 Patton and the STB-1 if ranked has that new huge map otherwise I guess Kranvagn and T110E5? Though Kranvagn could be a pain against Maus.
  14. I wonder what's deader WoWP or AW.
  15. Trouble is ranked is limited time slot and I normally play WoT earlier during the day rather than prime time so I get stuck vs tier 10s constantly, not sure if ranked has helped 8s.
  16. My only lights atm are the M41 90mm and the WZ-131, could free x5 xp to the WZ-132 but tiers 8s get such terrible matchmaking and I'd be starting with a 0 skill crew so need to train crew on tier 7 anyway.
  17. Well I got to rank 3 yesterday playing only the E5, just picked up the M48 today and decided to just watch other people play ranked instead of do it myself, I'll give ranked a thorough play on the last 2 days though. I put as much as I could into the M48s vision I'm hoping I can just farm assisted in it with a bit of damage thanks to the nice soft stats on the gun.
  18. My 2nd tier 10, the armour seems a bit better than the 103-0s at bouncing things, can stop 122s sometimes. The heat fence is also very handy at range.
  19. Got it as my first tier 10, I like it but ranked is making me wish the cupola was tougher when I get unlucky peeking while hulldown.
  20. Just got this as my 3rd tier 10 got it fully upgraded off the bat, free xped from M46.
  21. What rank you playing the CAX and Patton at?
  22. Do you think the M48 could hold up in ranks 4-5 vs all the 907s and 140s? I'm at a bit of a dilemma if I should spend my last 200k or so free xp I got from x5 xp prem missions on the chinese LT line to get the last female crew needed for my jap med crew and have a better option when the non-beta ranked season starts or just blow it all on M48 now and see what I can make do of that.
  23. I think STRV S1 should go to inbetween tier since in the rare t6-t8 game it can dominate many of the tier 6s with the autobounce armour from med range not so reliable up close I've found though, and it's 288 standard pen let's it prey on even the tier 10s adequately in the ubiquitous t8-t10 games ofc it goes to inbetween and not must-buy because of being held back by siege mode mechanics and being so map dependent.
  24. I only played it a little bit and got 1 chevron into rank 1, it was my first experience of using tier 10s and I only have the E5 and 103B to use, it was fun and certainly an eye opener as to what I need to do improve my play further, I was much too aggressive even in the 103B and got punished hard for it, lots of red and yellow WR players using jageroos and things like that I noticed since they only need like 3 good shots to hit top of the team for damage done. Watching streams of rank 4 and 5 meta it seems the best choices to use are RU meds and batchats high rank while low rank the best choices are superheavies. I think I have a chance of making rank 5 eventually though even only my last 200 battles have teal stats I seem to be on a constant upward stat trend lately and I have no preconceptions about tier 10 play that need to be broken to do well in ranked I just lack appropriate vehicles with the only tier 10 med in immediate reach being the M48 which might not be competitive enough vs the all the RU meds in rank 4/5, with a fair bit of missioning and then grinding I could get the STB-1 which I think could work with it's turret having some nice tough angles.
  25. Is having them on a similarish power level so bad though? The M103 with a buffed turret top still wouldn't be quite as good as the E5 and it'd have less hp and dpm. I guess liked how in the little of AW balance 2.0 I tried you could take on a tier 10 in a tier 9 or even 8 fairly evenly due to equal alpha, good enough pen and similar hp kinda wish WoT had scaling like that.
