    Personal Missions 2.0

    I'm just glad for the opportunity to earn more female tankers.

    [NA] Haven't played in what feels like a year!

    I give up... (after 8 years)

    I don't know what they pay their developers so this is purely speculative, but there is a quote that I think is applicable. "if you pay in peanuts, you get monkeys."

    For 1.01, what's better for HT 15.3, S Conq or Maus?

    IS-7 with full gold spam. That's what I got it with.
  6. "G'Dammit, I said leave that town, not level it." - That tankers CO probably.
  7. Meanwhile the IS-4 quietly squats in the corner, blinking away tears and chugging vodka.
  8. The object 277's APCR round is just plain nasty. I fully expect it to get nerfed in the near future.

      In the 3-4 patches it will be like a super small nerf so speed nerfed to 1700, maybe nerf the pen to 345.

      In b4 I end up with 67% wr on a 16fps laptop while averaging 58-59% on most of my t10s like it was with the 268 v4...

    Obi-Wan doesn’t need the high ground to win

    Obi-Wan only needs to drive a 268 v4 to win.
  10. So, If I were to hypothetically switch my 'rebalanced' SP plus 2k gold for a T34 that is already in my garage, would I get 12k gold for it?

    You're not a real world of tanks player until...

  12. I see wesley001 has come back to WoT. The amazing thing was that he got third on his team for damage. Says a lot about the current state of the game when there are 12 players that do worse than him in a game.

      Cool a unbalanced map returns. Just what I need after Fjord 1.0

      Didn't they remove Kharkov and Stalingrad for "gameplay" reasons? Same with Windstorm, making the scenery for a map that needs to have skyscrapers in the background along with a waterfront to the horizon is render ebola

      Port was a fun map though, but I think it'll be one hell of a heavy map if it's supposed to follow the same standard as the rest of the bunch

      Awww I remember days of yore playing Pz 38 nA on Port while having even less idea of what I'm doing that now :D Fun stuff

    Polish Tier 8 Premium (Project 51)

    Aimtime of 3.26 according to the TankInspector screenshot? My russian is pretty non-existent so i'm not sure about that, it clashes with the 2.5 listed in the OP
  14. I'm going to cry when I see one of these going into the valley on Lakeville. That. Terrain. Resistance. edit: @leggasiini I stand corrected. These are the same the IS-7. I just saw the 2.9xx for soft and thought that was excessively high.

    WN8 vs WR correlation

    Focus on winning rather than WN8. WN8 is an almost meaningless broken stat now. It is just so padded these days. (The only real use I find from WN8 is tracking my own personal improvement) If you must a number other than WR, then use the WG's PR for your overall and the recent tank rating. My $0.02 but YMMV
  16. I like the new scheme.

    Ranked Battles Tank Choices

    Yes, but only if you hold down both A and D at the same time.

    Improved Equipment Picks

    Thoughts on a Vstab for a bat25t? That is the only piece of iEquip I am tempted by. I am quite happy to stockpile bonds until they are useful for something better.
  19. simba90


    I use them for firefighting on my russian meds so I can run food with less risk. It costs 2 bonds/battle So it is easy to run a session and have positive bonds at the end if you run plenty of T10's I also use the designated target bond on a couple of my LTs that have a newish crew that I haven't got around to training the actual perk. (At this stage, only my Type 62 (first chinese completely new crew) and my AMX 13 90 which I pinched the crew a while back for my batchat 25t/lorraine 40t combo. I think improved equipment is the better way to go, but If you can live without it then there is nothing wrong with directives. Just bear in mind that some of the more expensive directives _will_ drain you bonds if you run them on too many tanks.

    Obj 257 - the Armored Catamaran

    get beside it and shoot the log. it will pen every time without the need for gold. Just dont try to do a track+damage shot and you're golden

    Obj 257 - the Armored Catamaran

    Really? edit: actually, I guess living in NZ i've taken for granted the fact that the coast has never been more that 20 minutes from my house and that i've spent a significant chunk of my life on the water. Some of you guys in the middle of the states have to drive for days to get to the coast.

    IS-7 Exculpation Thread

    With my crew, I swapped the vents out for optics for a laugh about 3 months ago. I am hitting 493m VR now and it has been extremely helpful for digging out STRV's and cammo'd up mediums in many late game situations. So much so that I have decided to leave that setup in place. Like Archaic_One says, the vents are nice, but they can be replaced if you have a good crew.

    Thats the the best way for people to get an indication of your thought patterns/decision making while playing a tank.
