  1. On the Obj 257 is the fairly large 30mm turret roof worth trying to hit with HE or is it a trap for average players such as myself.
  2. It looked like, from the RU server, that WG buff the side armor up to 45 mm which I assume was the "insignificant" armor buff mentioned in the patch notes.
  3. Dragon Ridge 14 Northwest 30 Pearl River 49 Port 24 -3 = 21 South Coast 29 +1 = 30
  4. I switched to the 105 and gold spam for the +10% damage. It's better. The tier 8 is not good. If it were for strongholds and tolerant clan mates, I would have free xp to the tier 9.
  5. Severgorsk wasn't bad I would give it plus 1 for a resurrection is that was allowed. Northwest 33 Port 29 Province 6 - 3 = 3 too small even for tier 1 South Coast 28 + 1 + 29 sure it was campy but you could try different things and get nice rewards Dragon Ridge 19
  6. I bought it. I know, I know. I couldn't resist. It's just too cute. I want to dunk it in my coffee and eat it up.
  7. The mechanic is giving you the option to fire about every 6-8 second like a normal tank or use all three round in a burst like an true autoloader. The price for this flexibility is that use the burst option, you have a longer complete reload time than the usual autoloader. Even then you aren't completely helpless since you will get at least one round reloaded faster than the usual autoloader.
  8. It's going to be disappointing when/if net neutrality ends and nothing really changes.
  9. This^ but for basically any reason.
  10. If you say it three times while looking into a mirror, the buffs will appear.
  11. Will the obj 430U make out of test in its current state and, if not, what will WG nerf first?

      440 alpha with a slightly faster rof than both with better aim time,  better front hull armor (160) the same front turret 300, worse side hull armor but better on the side of the turret, same top speed, same 400m vr. worse gun depression.

      The good thing is that the 257's front armor is pretty weak. (Weaker than the defender actually.). And the turret has the IS-3 turret roof overmatch.

      And the gun is bleh. And it's kind of slow.

  12. I've only seen 2 Loza Sherman's in strongholds so far. I for WG's sake it is selling better on RU.
  13. http://wotlabs.net/sig_dark/na/skepnad/signature.png Skepnad hid in a corner in the tier 9 swede TD. Fired 1 shot.
  14. Consider this a parting gift, the Obj 416 is probably the best tier 8 TD. Play it like that and you'll be fine, in my opinion. It doesn't have any armor except for the occasional troll bounce so I wouldn't worry about gold spam. Feel free to throw 330 pen HEAT back at them. It's glorious. Gents, is that pretty much a fair summary of the 416 thread if the OP was arsed to find it. Good luck elsewhere.
  15. RU 251 and T54ltw, are they keepers?

      I kept both. I haven't played the RU much since the tier shift, but the LTWT is still quite good. Not very good at being a "real" light tank but an excellent harassing medium.

      I think @CraBeatOff wrote he really enjoys the RU at tier9.

      I grew to appreciate what it offers. I wasn't a fan of the bloom and shell speed at tier 8. It's comfortable enough at 9 that I've kept it. It's certainly better per tier than the RhmPz. The 54LW is excellent.

  16. As I was saying elsewhere, it's a one trick pony without the trick.
  17. The Tier 8 STrv is on sale for 15% off but is going to be on sale again in January on NA.  Anyone have any idea whether the January sale will be better?

      I had the same question, but from what I can gather, the sale in January is probably a for-cash bundle.

      Jan sale is cash bundle. 15% off has historically been the best for gold so I wouldnt expect better.

      You missed out on 30% discount over the Thanksgiving weekend

  18. My biggest complaint is that it rolls too easily, which makes the speed less useful.
  19. My only complaint is that the Lowe is slow. The gun has good accuracy and pen with reasonable damage for it's tier. The turret armor and -10 degrees depression are good as well. I like it.
  20. Now WG is saying it may get it's own mini line to a new tier 10? https://worldoftanks.com/en/news/general-news/2018-preview/#tab3
  21. According to tank fest, a new soviet heavy mini line is going to start off the KV-13. I guess we will be seeing more of these.
  22. I'm not saying you're wrong but Flavor Country has been shown to cause cancer.
  23. 2 new premium tanks in January: https://worldoftanks.com/en/news/announcements/overview-january-2018/. I assume one is going to be the little french thingy.
