    HWK 12

    This tank is a significant upgrade from the SPIC but comes with significantly worse MM... Not a dog when stock. In fact already much better than the SPIC in that configuration. Fully upgraded it’s probably as good as it gets for tier 8 tech tree tanks atm LT or MT wise. Crazy fast with 410m base view range. Basically tier 8 90mm MT dpm, alpha, and pen. 10 degrees gun depression as well. Terrible shell velocity of 600-odd m/s is a thing though. A definite keeper for me. Very different style to the Even 90 so between the two of them my LT itch can be scratched in all kinds of masochistic ways.

    T-64 MBT=New Premium Light Tank? (Object 432)

    I haven’t seen a new premium flood the server like this since the Defender/252U first went on sale. The marketing is strong in this one. But with the new MM on SEA/ANZ this thing got a massive buff. Will go through tiers 6-7, which it actually gets to face now (mostly 7s).
  3. Patch notes for 1.3 do say they’re improving the hull armour as well. But not by how much.

    Shit yeah it is. Just saying it shifts the focus to other glaring problems. There are no easy fixes for the monstrosity WG have created (I’m well overdue a break from the game as you can probably tell).

    This is the problem. Just highlights how bad other aspects of the game are. Seeing less tier 10s on ANZ while grinding my HWK 12 last night; not none. Guess around 1/2-1/3 of games still.

    Because the ANZ server has 1000 people on it. So grinding tiers 1-5 it is impossible to get a game. No bots after tier 5 or on any other server.
  7. Had a look at the next patch stats on last night and the ufp is still listed as 100mm.

    T-64 MBT=New Premium Light Tank? (Object 432)

    @Ezz @hazzgar pew pewing feels good but HWK has alpha and 250 HEAT pen hence much less exposure. Considering tier8 MM that’s a big deal (for a shitter like me at least) @Action I doubt I’ll get it because, like the Even, it has 380m base view range and shit pen. So a great crew, rations, and liberal use of premium rounds is required for good times. Designing tier 8 premium tanks that don’t make credits...I don’t have a good Ruski LT crew anyway , so fuck it, I’ll stop at the Even. If they’d given it the 100mm gun, even nerfing dpm and gun depression to do so, I doubt I’d be able to resist though.

    An OP tier 8 LT is still a tier 8 LT...

    The Untold Truth about the Somua SM

    Looking at this shouldn't be the case. But I don't doubt you when you say that it is. I've come to the conclusion (get ya tin foil here..) that there is another variable not covered by Possibly likely shot distribution within the reticle? I don't know. But I do know that the Lorr sprays shots like few others, even when stationary and fully aimed.

    Missed that, obviously. The problem with watching stuff on tiny screens. Is it as cheap as the T92 and Even, or have WG realised they’re onto a winner and will only sell it in shit packages like the 1357, Progetto, etc?

    T-64 MBT=New Premium Light Tank? (Object 432)

    Gives the tanks stats with pimped out crew and rations just after the 3 minute mark. Mobility and camo (34.4%) “only” HWK 12 good. Shitty base view range remains. I don’t know... T92 and Even 90 will still be much better pure scouts, which is possibly more beneficial when constantly bottom tier. And shit pen is shit. That magic Russian though. And the gun breech must be made of rubber for them to get 7 degrees of gun depression out of that turret.

    Elimination: Tier 9 - 2018

    Cause that always ends well in movies.

    Stopped breathing all together. RIP.

    HWK 12

    Grind note: I took the top turret before the top engine. The stock engine struggled with the extra weight. Still gets around okay but something to consider if you prefer good mobility over 10m view range, extra 100hp, and a gun buff.

    No it just lies on it’s side...

    P.43 ter: it ain't too shabby

    After the disappointment of the tier 6 I really enjoyed this grind. Good mobility. Decent gun handling. 240 alpha so can trade with tier 8 MTs when needs must. Plus tier 7 MM. What's not to like? Pitiful review I know. But this Itai subsection needs serious resuscitation.

    Why Do People Hate On The VK 16.02 Leopard

    I three marked it after the LT changes and throughly enjoyed doing so. The gun handling is insanely good. Just don’t play it like a genuine scout. It’s a support tank. While the Luchs needs no premium spam to be OP, the Leo only really requires some so it can pen the sides of the tier 7 pommy TD.

    Revisiting the VK 28.01

    Yeah derp on such a mobile platform would’ve been fun. But both this and the SPIC are good enough; not worth wasting free XP on.

    Spahpanzer SP I C

    Mediocre but basically serviceable is my take. Special shout out to the stock gun which handles like a derp gun but isn’t, so the joke is always on you. Top gun isn’t much better.

    Revisiting the VK 28.01

    Meh ... it's alright. 380m base view range is really good for a tier 6 (shame about my shitty, 1.5 skill, crew). The anaemic dpm is somewhat offset by excellent gun handling. Gets around the map pretty well, happily winding up to 65kph on the flat. Not a keeper. But in no way a chore either.
  22. Being the slow learner that I am, I’ve finally adjusted (become resigned) to the new meta. Camping. It involves lots of camping.

      game is so much more dynamic now that arty simply makes you slow over and over and slowly kills you instead of killing you in one shot

      Hmm Personally every time I camp either game the runs away from me and I crap or I am left 1 vs 15 or something and I do crap. So I continue to be aggressive. Screw the arty bullying, I won't succumb!

      It’s mid to late game I’m really referring to. It seems the team that pushes now frequently loses on a shitload of maps. Just set up the crossfires and wait behind the new HD bushes.

    Tier 8 grand battles

    I’ve got high hopes for the HWK 12 which has 410m base view range and insane hp/t. It’s unremarkable camo value might spoil the party though. Soon find out.
  24. sohojacques


    It’s like end game on Campinovka, but from the beginning. So shit.
  25. Yep +2/-2 MM is getting more fun with every patch: get thrashed most of the time by higher grades while grinding up a line with the occasional chance to beat on lower grades as a consolation. English boarding school game design.
