  1. Seems the new mail.ru devs have managed to release balance 2.0 on the EU and NA servers a couple weeks after the RU server, anyone tried it out? I'll download it at some point and see if it's still a dead game or not and if it got's any more fun or worse in that regard.
  2. Well I'm guess I'm going to grind the centurion line and grab a UK female crew.
  3. So my Logitech G600 died after a nasty fall leaving me needing a new gaming mouse, any good suggestions that would suit WoT and FFXIV, ESO?
  4. Ordered a Rival 700 since it got a good review on that Hardwarecanuck's channel @Folterknecht recommended and elsewhere, also LED screen that displays gifs seems fun.
  5. Oh that sounds like a great feature, is this the one? https://www.amazon.co.uk/SteelSeries-Sensei-Grade-Laser-Mouse/dp/B007N6HS3G/ref=sr_1_1
  6. Hey so atm I only have 1 SSD which is not big enough to hold WoT with Battlefield 1, CoD and some random steam games on it atm but I will be picking up an extra either 120GB or 240GB SSD on Tuesday and wondering how big WoT is to see if I could fit it and Mass Effect Andromeda(55GB) on a 120GB SSD just to save me a few quid for other things.
  7. They are ill suited to the meta but people like new shinies I thought?
  8. Woo managed to scramble enough money to get this before it went off sale, looking forward to trying it out, seems like it might be kinda okay next patch with more lights around because of actually being able to bounce some things unlike UDES.
  9. You can add me if you like though I'm busy farming x5 xp tier 8 missions for a while.
  10. I've actually never been truly bad at tanks, at the end of the beta I had a 54% win rate . Of course that immediately plummeted due to abandoning game and has never recovered.
  11. So I recently found out about that Kewei "sink or swim" method of getting good at the game, it seems like a nice challenge to increase my e-tanking prowess quickly and brutally but I don't really wanna get stuck with red stats from the how "brutally" thing so I made an alt account that I intend to get a t8 prem on and power my way to 500-1000 games with as in the "guide" to try git gud at e-tanks before going back to main account. I know we just had the tier 8 prem elimination thread but that includes a lot of stuff that's just not available atm( if only I had money spare when the T26E5 was collector's) so looking for suggestions for a tank that would be good for doing this guide/challenge. Atm I'm partial to M4A1 Rev due to the alpha and high shell velocity, and the 112 as a meatyish non german heavy but D25T... , T25 Pilot I might see if I can pick up along the way with just a few tokens bought if it's any good.
  12. So I pulled the trigger on the last build @Folterknecht provided but I changed the case to a slightly fancier more portable one for travel reasons.
  13. Fed up of this shitty Acer Nitro laptop I've been using, I don't know what's wrong with it but I get 40 fps max with constant large dips in WoT even on minimum settings and stuttering audio, sure it's 1080 but a 960M can't be that shit right? So I'm going to build a PC again, however there's a big constraint on size, I only have 120cmx50cm L:W space to put both PC, monitor and keyboard+mouse in so everything must be small. I'm in the UK and have a budget of £1000, I already have a spare 22inch 1080p IPS monitor and a logitech mmo mouse so that's sorted but I need everything else, I've also not built a PC or kept up on things since like 2011/12 so looking to see if Wotlabs can help me with this one.
  14. This tank is hilarious though you can beat tier 9/10 heavies head to head if you have a decent position and they're a bit dumb, unless they have a derp gun.
  15. Ahh thanks for the help, curious though could the RX480 become obsolete before 8GB is really necessary or is that moment coming very soon you think?
  16. I want it, also make it OP like 252U thanks so I will be able to play when sleep deprived.
  17. I agree with Leggasiini if arty were removed it would allow the fixing of every other problem in this game, corridor meta would be instantly nerfed since even moving just 50-100m to somewhere that gets you shots on heavies' sides but is unviable due to arty shitting on you for all your hp would become viable, and I know I don't have many games in WoT but hull down tanks securing an area have mostly been a problem for me when you're unable to crossfire them due to arty forcing your whole force to cower in one small area. So yeah remove all arty and you can indeed fix maps, corridor meta, and remove gold without much ill effect.
  18. So I'm assuming the Ryzen 5 4 core 8 thread will not have the same scheduling problems that the 8 core 16 thread does so could it potentially give smoother performance in some games?
  19. Oh well I got screwed dog needed a trip to vets after being very naughty so I'm forced to cut back my budget by about £200 and I tested out the spare monitor but it appears to be not quite working, I think it was damaged in storage thus I have to add in a monitor to the build. I looked up how 4 vs 8 GB memory performs for the RX480 and it seems to be only a small loss in recent games due to lower mem speed of 7gbps vs 8gbps, OCing might help that a bit. So here's what I'm probably going to have to go with https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/wMznKZ I'll probably replace the motherboard and cpu with a Z270 and i5 K in July. Good enough to run high settings in WoT and maybe medium in the latest Mirror's Edge and Tomb Raider on that monitor? If so I'll go ahead and order the whole lot first Monday in April.
  20. I'll probably get it because I actually went down the Swedish TD line so can crew train with it.
  21. It's a bit over but it seems like this setup is really good, I'll look into cases I can fit and then probably go with this tyvm.
  22. Well I got no clue how to optimise that but I think I'll dump the 1TB HDD from it and just add more SSD later.
  23. elimination

    So what would fix the Emil 2 and Kran to make them good? Better gun handling and intraclip or medium HEAT pen of 330?
  24. I like this tank if it had just a little bit better gun handling and a tad more dpm it'd be really up there as far as tier 8 meds go.
  25. Huh so Red Alert's soviet double gun tanks weren't so crazy after all :P.
