    M35 Marathon Megathread

    I want to know what bast XP is. As far as I know, I can't get an Egyptian cat goddess as a crew member.

    I would guess because the game just isn't that popular outside of Russia, and it's probably going to be more difficult for western publishers to penetrate the Russian market.
  3. Every time I log in, my graphical settings have been undone. All the other changes (battle chat, sound settings, etc.) are the way I left them. Any idea why?

      It's having trouble writing the new settings to your dossier. It could be that there's something wrong with your dossier itself, you can try moving/removing it from C:\Users\[You]\AppData\Roaming\Wargaming.net\WorldOfTanks\dossier_cache and letting the game generate a new one. You'll have to set your settings again, though. You probably want to just move it & put it back in if it doesn't fix the issue.

      Success! Thank you!

  4. I swear the upswings and downswings in this game are worse than poker. I really need to learn consistency, and when to give up on an engagement. 20k battles and I still suck at both.

      I've had 58-59% recent win rate for ages. But for the last week I've been barely cracking 50% despite all my other stats being steady or even above average. I don't think you really know what frustration is until you play WoT.

      For me the biggest improvement in experience of this game was to stop comparing this game to legitimate, predictable, logical games and just do what you can with what it is....

      My recent (1,000 game sample) win rate has fluctuated between 62% and 52%, all with a pretty stable 3.8-4K recent WN8.

      Fuck caring about that nonsense.

      Edit - I mean that I do care about individual wins, but do my best to ignore any tracked statistic of any kind.

    Safest place is the official mod hub. Everything there is verified legal. There are a bunch of xvm packages. Don't know if there's zoom out or not.
  6. I want to play tanks, but I'm very tired and I know I'll play badly, then get salty, and not want to play tanks for days. Such a dilemma.

  7. It's pretty, and the shape and angle of the hull makes it look like it could have some formidable frontal/sidescraping armor if the thickness is reasonable. Too bad none of that matters in a Type 5 meta, unless the gun is godlike.
  8. WoT runs on my machine at 100+ fps. Replay files, whether my own or downloaded, run at 10-15 fps, which is pretty nauseating. Anybody have any idea why, and what I can do to fix it?

      Install a monitoring tool like Afterburner to check clockspeeds (CPU + GPU) and CPU core usage ingame and in replays.

  9. That might be an advantage, if people weren't familiar with the weak spots, except the weak spot on the T95E6 is glaringly obvious and exactly where every player who's made it as far as tier 6 would expect it to be. You could show the tank model to 100 random WoT pubbies and 95% of them would be able to identify where to shoot it even if they'd never seen or heard of it before.
  10. An extremely satisfying end to my Caernarvon grind. What a lovely tank this is. Definitely a keeper.

      Man, I played that tank years back when it was a flaming hot POS.  But I do constantly hear stories of how improved it is since then, so kudos to you that you got to enjoy it.

  11. Well, this is a new one. My own team giving me shit for firing premium rounds at a Type 4 heavy, in my tier 8. Because I'm a "gold noob shitter." Apparently I should just "aim at the cheeks," because a <20% chance to pen is apparently acceptable to muppets.

      See on EU I could understand that because EU is special but NA I don't get.

      Reply that unlike them, you are not poor and can shoot prem all day long.

  12. Glad I came back for a second session this evening. First round was 30% WR, 1300 dpg. Took a break, got my head right, tried again. Second session, 100% WR, 2550 dpg. I'll take it.

  13. Trying to do LT15. Get Prok for the first time in weeks. TD decides to charge up behind me in my spotting bush and open fire. We're both vaporized.

     

  14. Leo 1 on-track on NA. Is it finally time to buy the Indien Panzer, some 2+ years after I unlocked it?

      the only reason to play that line at all is to play the pta which is pretty decent for a t9, but literally everything in the line is a massive middle finger from russia to germany for the past 

      or as serB puts it: 

      :novaserb:

      Yeah, I was looking at the PTA more than the Leo 1 or the IP. But I'm not sure the PTA isn't just a worse Patton, and I already have a Patton. Kinda why I stopped going up the line at tier 7 in the first place.

      PTA is currently better than the Patton thanks to final acc and HEAT pen, M46 is not a good T9 anymore
