    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.
  2. Skip cunts spam so much arty. The very same skip cunts who used to bitch about camping asians on the SEA server...
  3. Fair enough. It’s definitely not clear cut. But no way I can lead shots in third person view like that. Never seen any of the good streamers pulling it off either (no pun intended). And no decent player leads like that anyhow. Funny thing is rng still played a big role aimbot or not.
  4. Possibly. Replay bug? Looks dodgy as to me though. This is the vid: Think QBs call that it wouldn’t really help shitters in higher tiers is right though.

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

    Do WG calculate the dpm on these preliminary stats with or without rammer? Regardless, if it gets T92 level camo and the 100mm gun it will be a relative boss. I would assume that it’ll get thrashed by the nerf bat instead, like the Even 90 did. But it’s Russian, so who knows...
  6. It’s the shots that do hit yet, for no discernible reason, don’t pen that really gets me. Shooting the flat side of a tank (not Russian of course cause magic happens) with a green pen indicator showing and hearing “that one didn’t go through!” makes my pubbie tears flow.

    Progetto 65 worth the credits?

    Just trying to get the ball rolling... How are people going with this? I'm currently grinding the Standard B and, despite a bad even for me win rate, am having more fun playing this game than I have in a long time. But will that carry over to the tier 10? Does the horrendous dpm finally come home to roost? Almost 50 sec reload if you fire the last shell leaves the two last shells as more of a deterrent than anything else most of the time? Also a tad worried by the centrally mounted turret and slightly less gun depression. The B might have no armour either but you need to expose very little of it to get a shot off with any kind of terrain undulation at hand. Thoughts?
  8. QB had footage of aimbot in action on YouTube yonks ago and yes, it was.
  9. I thought it was more of a Skynet kinda relationship?

    New Pilsen

    How are people going with this? Only played it a handful of times. My first impressions are: - Whoever takes the 0 line quickly roles the east flank. But just like the central road on Lakeville, pity the fool who tries. Waiting to see fast HTs/heaviums yolo it instead of defaulting to the west. Could break the map? -The rubble piles around E2 and F2 work best for lower profile tanks. Taller tanks have their turret roof/cupolas exposed while they drive out far enough for the rubble to not block their shot.

    Russian bias map, really. Notice how the coal piles in the east offer no advantage to tanks with good gun depression, because there’s nice flat road between each one. All key positions best suit low profile tanks with turret armour.

    Standard B is ... balanced?

    Can we even still speak of balance in a game that doesn’t really have any? Haven’t got the top engine yet. Gets around okay without it. As far as I can tell the autoreloading mechanic, which could easily be OP, is tempered by having tier 7/8 dpm. Nice bit of novelty in the game. I think being able to switch between shells without having to reload the whole clip would be a reasonable buff. 268 pen standard shell is glorious. Definitely need to settle the reticle before flinging the first though.

    Standard B is ... balanced?

    Put my shitty win rate in the Pantera down to tier 8 MM . But I can’t seem to win games in the B either. 176 games for 50% WR. Only recently dropped below 2.4k dpg. I know that’s nothing to write home about. But 50 fucking %.... I know I could be getting more assisted. But I’m also still working on my 3rd crew skill and can’t afford to run food. So my view range and camo are still subpar. But ultimately I have no clue as to why I can’t win in this tank. Got any pro tips for me folks?

    The alpha creep of recent HTs/430U doesn’t help either.

    Progetto 65 worth the credits?

    Fuck me just checked my recents. I can’t win games with auto reloading tanks. So I’ve answered my own question: no 65 for me.

    Progetto 65 worth the credits?

    I keep meaning to run a large repair kit on the B cause getting tracked and ammoracked by arty is a bit of a thing.

    Am I the only one that likes 3/5/7?

    As others have said, it’s not like the old MM was good. I suspect that however you configure +2/-2 MM it’s gonna kinda suck. But 3/5/7 does really screw over tier 8 because of the huge power gap between it and even tier 9 and the large number of 8s always in queue grinding credits. Prioritising same tier and +1/-1 MM would seem like an easy fix. But it would make grinding past tier 9 even more pointless, so bad for profits, and give the recent crop of OP premiums Bobject win rates. Better than what we have now but because of the former I can’t see it happening.
  19. @AdrianK Thanks for making me feel better about my weekend win rate. @bolagnaise https://tanks.gg/asia/Bol_Hunter

    Standard B is ... balanced?

    Ignored my children for long enough to finally grind out the top engine. Tank is fantastically quick with it.

    Standard B is ... balanced?

    Always remaining at least a perceived threat does offset the effective dpm difference between the B and the T50. Definitely fun managing the mechanic.

    Standard B is ... balanced?

    But there really is no way around the dpm when it is an issue. Even restricting yourself to 1 or two shots still leaves you with terrible dpm. And that’s fine I’m my opinion. I think it’s a good implementation of the mechanic. But just let us swap shells mid clip so I can start using the glorious hesh this tank comes with.

    P.44 Pantera....tier 8 MM

    Played 50 battles in it. Bearing the full brunt of tier 8 MM. 46% WR (59.9% recent WR at the start of the grind). I know it's an insignificant number of battles but that won't stop my rage-tilt kicking in. I'll try to not let that influence what follows. Free XP'ed the top gun and tracks. They can me mounted without upgrading your tracks which is always nice. Mobility is decent with stock tracks and engine; good once fully upgraded. The trend of making Premiums superior to their Tech Tree cousins continues. Progetto 46 gets: 0.5 second faster intra-clip reload; better gun handling; an extra degree of gun depression; better view range. Pantera should be faster with it's significantly better power to weight ratio. But WG, in their infinite wisdom, gave it terrible terrain resistances. So it's a wash mobility wise as far as I can tell when driving alongside Progetto's leaving spawn. Fuck you Wargaming. Fuck you. I'm still on the fence regarding the reloading mechanic. Shooting the last shell puts you in horrific dpm territory without the benefit of just having dished out serious amounts of damage, à la Lorr 40t. But having the option of trading two shots for one with no real penalty is cool. And it's nice not getting caught with no retort late game, pants fully round ankles. I don't know? Definitely one of the best Tech Tree tier 8 MT's. I just need the MM to give me a fucking break....

    P.44 Pantera....tier 8 MM

    I thought my time in the Pershing was tough. But this grind is next-level torture. 45% win rate after 100 battles. And while I didn’t really like the Perishing (slow and the gun trolled the fuck out of me) I only have minor complaints with this tank: it’s size, especially it’s height; and it slowish turret traverse. Like the T-44, it’s another good tank defeated by 3-5-7 and’ll get sold as soon as I finish grinding it.
