  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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?
  4. I want it, also make it OP like 252U thanks so I will be able to play when sleep deprived.
  5. 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.
  6. 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?
  7. 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.
  8. I'll probably get it because I actually went down the Swedish TD line so can crew train with it.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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?
  12. 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.
  13. Huh so Red Alert's soviet double gun tanks weren't so crazy after all :P.
  14. I got into a forum fight with silentstalker when he banned me for "spamming"(when I made like 3-4 posts a day) so then I got a bigger ban so iirc I did a claim under "faulty/non delivery of goods" or something, can't quite remember. I didn't get the stuff back from early on but I got my most recent gold and collector purchase money.
  15. The Chieftain is in WoT console but how much longer can they seriously wait to implement it into WoT PC? Didn't the first come up with the idea of putting it in in like 2015?
  16. 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.
  17. Was their server not viable any longer on it's own then? Surprised if so since I had the impression from how grindy their MMOs are that they'd love arse killing long grinds to get anything good like this game has.
  18. I ordered the book that comes with it in EU but that's out of general interest in the historical T34 like my other tier 6 prems I'll probably barely use it since being +2 uptiered is torture. The only tier in this game that I actually really like consistently so far is tier 9 which is as far as I've gotten.
  19. I really want this Centurion as it's kinda the tank that originated the MBT concept and it has the sacred L7 and I absolutely love the ingame 105mm sound but it just seems so naff statwise compared to it's rivals the armour may as well be equal to the Leo PTA and AMX 30 for all the good it'll do against tier 9 and 10 guns. Maybe it's worth using my free xp on this just for the CAX at the end of grind.
  20. I doubt an alt would let me hit purple but maybe I'd improve to solid dark green, I was worried that since I play this game VERY sporadically and couldn't even 50% the new super tier 8 heavy prems that I might be out of my depth in high tiers and I get kind of a mixed message on stats, people say things like "red shitters", mock "play4fun" but then you also get people saying not to play for stats or that stats aren't the be all end all.
  21. I tried this game a bit before December the main problem I had was that the low population and the arcadeyness meant people just seem to squad up 2 high altitude aircraft and pick survivors of the initial melee off from above and even if you can get on their altitude to fight them, 2v1 is really really difficult in this game.
  22. I already have the M103 fully upgraded so I figured it wouldn't be too bad to skip a bit of grind, is there much difference in the matches you get between playing a tier 9 and tier 10?
  23. Yeah I suppose it's better to just get another prem on my regular account then, I guess I'll go grab that T25 30 x5 xp bundle on this account and finally get the M48A1, might have enough free xp after that to get the T110E5 too.
  24. I have done crazier things in games than spend 10s of hours on alt accounts but I see you guys points, still might go ahead and do it just for the sake of comparing the two accounts to each other but I'll see. In the meantime I'll go knock out some more tier 9 games on my main account.
  25. I slightly disagree that the general quality of WoT players on EU has gotten worse on account of my recent and even overall WR steadily dropping since I started WoT at EU launch after CB and playing like 200 battles per year since release it was hovering normally around 53%, now I can barely break 50% WR in OP t8 prems but then again my WIN8 is higher and I barely played tier 8 much until 2016 so probs user error.
