  1. You know, you're probably right about that. I'll edit to remove.
  2. Which circle of Hell does Dante reserve for Japanese superheavy drivers who whine about premium ammo in after-battle messages?

      the 2nd, obviously

      Why reserve just one circle of hell for them. Just let them get dragged through all of them, repeatedly.

  3. <deleted> Mob justice is never going to work, especially given how irrational and hate filled the mob is.
  4. IS 7 unlocked in preparation for the next patch. Now I have to decide if I can stand playing rear-turreted tanks enough to unlock the 430. Probably not.

      Hmm.. 2:1 in favor of the 416 and 430 II. Interesting. I hated, hated, hated, hated the A44, but in a limited sample the 416 does seem better. Maybe I'll give it some play this week and see what you guys are going on about.

      Comparing A44 and 416 is like comparing 65T and M4 51.


      A44 is a turd that need to be tamed, while the 416 is a jewel.

      ^^^^ This.

  5. Thanksgiving marathon was fun for me (I avoided the day 19 fiasco). Lowlight - any number of games where I've been killed without taking a penetrating hit. HE meta sucks.
  6. Just accidentally got the 2nd mark on my IS6 after 788 games. I am not good at tanks. But it's mostly fun.

  7. So apparently that's what I've been doing wrong. I've been playing it with the non-derp gun, and it's been absolutely miserable. No armor, meh mobility, gun that scares no-one, one-shottable by many tier 7s and some tier 6s. Good gun depression, but so what on a turret that isn't very strong and has a giant tumor on top anyway. Edit - Holy crap, the tier 6 VK 3001 P is just so much more comfortable to play.
  8. I guess I'd best grind out the rest of my IS7 on the T10 then.
  9. That's only a problem if you want to train crews at tier 8, really. I much prefer to train my Soviet heavy crews in my KV 220 and Church III where at least I know 3/4 of my opponents also have subpar crews. I do love my Soviet heavy tanks though. I think there are 8 in my garage, 7 crewed, and 3 premiums (not counting the IS6b, which I've never played because equipping a second IS6 seems dumb).
  10. Why did they have to ruin the holiday ops with a CGC on track?

  11. Nothing about this really seems unreasonable. I'm sure the community will react with level-headed calm.
  12. Sgt. Pepper, it seems like prem ammo is balanced best for the tier 10 meds. 265 APCR is a great base round. It does the job in most circumstances, and has some significant advantages over HEAT rounds in the shell velocity and dealing with spaced armor. If all the rounds cost the same, I'd still carry a mix of rounds in my t62a, for example. But just one tier lower, the t54 is a joke. 200 pen vs 330, and no high shell velocity. There's almost no reason other than economic to fire AP rounds.
  13. I found really good matchmaking at tier 8 today, probably because of all the badgers. I actually got to bully some tier 6s in a few games.
  14. Agreed, it's the really big gun HE that's a problem, and especially the premium HE for more damage. I don't think anybody minds HE from smaller guns. Shoot HE out of a 105 to finish off a guy who's at 30 hp and not risk a bounce? Good play to you. Do 500 damage to a Scorpion G instead of 400 with your 122mm HE, maybe kill an extra module? Good play to you. But when the guns are "balanced" around the damage they do on a non-pen, you really have no way to play against it.
  15. I haven't decided what I want to do yet, but I love that the rental camos are now reasonable. It now applies for 100 battles. Not 30 days. So now a tank that I don't intend to keep, but only want to play occasionally can have a camo pattern.
