  1. The only thing that bothers me is that the rewards aren't really exciting (outside of the boosters)
  2. Saw a few of them going around in some matches, it seems nimble enough to make the circle of death, however for some reason one of them actually started getting stuck on rough terrain while circling an IS3, the gun also seemed to shot APCR by default? or at least when I blocked the shell the "APCR" name was greyed out
  3. Sorry for bumping you here Crab, but how do you do a status update? ;-; literally can't find this same bar I'm using on you, in my profile T_T

      When you go to the top right menu and click on the profile button does it take to a page that has a white box that says "Write a public message on your own feed" ?

      Its also possible it might not show up on some mobile versions of browsers.

  4. People tend to play more on the weekends, both for kiddos and adults. So the number of people playing also increases the chances of very random setups, teams, lemming trains, suicide-scouts and the likes. Basically, on these type of weekends people get really frustrated by all the factors mentioned and have a harder time making proper choices because they get tilted. I talk from experience of course~
  5. @TAdoo87 You know what, you got your mouth super filled with absolute truth. I'm gonna go fish in the WOT Replays section, is it too late for me to upload here my replays from this soon to be afternoon matches to get them reviewed? just 2-3 from both tanks, I don't do particularly well on either (aside strongholds and advances) As always, super useful man!
  6. Alright, I will post a few replays about it, I should rephrase it tho, I only have issues with the 50B on Fiery salient. Light tanks and medium tanks are okay, it's just the tall profile of the 50B that sometimes it's difficult to handle in the middle of the map, where the poking happens
  7. I'm not sure if this is the appropiate thread to make such a request. but. I was wondering if players who have had some good consistency at the game could provide me with tapes to study them? I find myself struggling a VERY huge amount on maps where I'm forced to take cities for brawling and where the choke points are compromised of a few heavy tanks, best example is Lakeville, I'm unable to be relevant in the map regardless of what I use, the best that I have managed to do is sit back and wait for them to roll the city so that I can start clipping them, but then, it feels as if I was using my team as cannon fodder, which... Feelsbad... So, if players with good matches could provide replays on the following maps as to what to do , I would appreciate it a lot!. List of maps; Lakeville Mines Fiery Salient Swamp Highway Westfield I do have considered WOT guru but it doesn't has specific explanations on 50B and 12T just rather overall positioning so... Thank you very much! Thanks a bunch!
  8. Two people on KV2's murder a T67 at the start of the match, I proceed to report them, I get screwed from behind until near death, then, they proceed to push me to get killed, of course I couldn't even do a single shot of damage. They also damaged other allies and pushed people around barelly contributing to the game, even worse, they started insulting... On top of that... somehow we won the match... Players are JeFINN and Jancera http://wotreplays.eu/site/3919757#el_halluf-star_dust-tiger_i
  9. it would be nice to join, since my clan hasn't ever been alive to begin with haha, problem is, I don't own any tier X ~ What sort of tanks are currently meta for , 6 , 8 and 10? Good luck with the recruiting~
  10. Sadly, I ended up selling the Tiger 2 out of frustration... It was difficult for me to return to where the action was if I screwed up (among other circumstances) so I ended up straight up selling it :/ Perhaps one day I will take it back and attempt to do it right, but I doubt such day is any close, right now I'm having huge issues with my win rate, I'm trying to not be so tunneled visioned but I got troubles with assessing the map circumstances, I will add some replays whenever I get super bad games.
  11. Hello right now I'm having huge issues playing this tank, it would be nice if anyone could give me a few pointers. Lately it seems I get difficulty on positioning myself on places where I can do damage, then I end up getting swarmed by arty fire and mediums, which ends my match. If anyone could give me some advice or replays to check on them, that would be awesome, thanks!

    I have met a few Youjo members, specially "TheReturned" very friendly person, he is an awesome guy. Hopefully one day I manage the stats to get into one of the divisions of the clan.
  13. I have a question regarding VR, skills that affect it, Camo and also a question of Russian T-X mediums. First off, when you buy coated optics and the such, they state the maximum view range is around 435Meters or 445? I tend to mix these two numbers, so, basically my question is, if you have a tank with base 400VR and you buy an equipment, basically it caps at the limit the equipment states right? SO, what happens if I also get skills that affect VR like Recon or Situational Awareness? Will it get further from the limit or it will still be capped at the 445M limit thing? This is important for me because, tanks like the AMX 50 120 have good VR so putting equipment usually maxes it, so giving it crew skills would seem useless? I hope my question is coherent. Also, how does camo exactly works? many times I find myself sitting behind a bush (and bush isnt transparent) I shoot and get detected even tho all my crew folks have camo skill, does that mean someone in the other team has super VR and I simply get into their range? I also read shooting decreases your camo values? The last question is, Russian tier 10's, right now, for current meta purposes and overall PUB enjoyment, which one is more viable? Obj 140 or the T62A? Thanks a bunch!
  14. @TAdoo87 thanks a bunch for your summary!. A little bit of answering and inspection. For starters, yes, I often get tunnel vision, sometimes I get so focused on what is going on in front of me, also me thinking "How the heck will I manage to get through them?" that I forgot other folks are creeping behind us to get side shots, an example is in the fight on my Tiger II where I tried to hit the Type 4, I loaded APCR to attempt to hit the lower plate, since I know the small driver hatches (if you can even pen them at all) and the lower plate are relativelly weaker than the structure (still over 230MM tho) so I tried my luck, but you're right, it's a stupid move that placed me on danger and needlessly got me hurt by other tanks. A question is, what should I do when I'm faced with these situations? I often find myself in a flank with the two top dogs blocking my way of moving or retreating, I also know that if I hadn't been where I was on my Tiger II, the other tanks would just have swarmed right through and the flank would had been lost in half the time it was lost. But then again, I barelly did anything relevant, which could had been a good option? There's many times when I find myself invested in a flank with little possibility to retreat, not to mention the Tigers weapon isnt good enough (I dont have the top gun but I still dont think it would make much a difference penetration wise) so what would be a good thing to do agaisnt super heavies? like the Type's, or E75s-E100 (aside shooting the super small cupula bar thing) or IS7? About the AMX 50 120, yeah... I cannot put to good use it's strengths, it feels nice the handling and depression on the gun but somehow I always screw up in the last seconds and get myself killed, things that I dont understand about this tank is how to play it when there's a massive ammount of armor on both sides? For example, Fishermen Bay, one side has really strong TD's, the other one has super heavies, if I go middle Arty rekts me or I end up being played by medium tanks, so I ponder these questions a lot, "Where can I be most effective? What can I do to stay relevant?" Against my own will I tend to go up the hill most of the times, just to end up frustrated. Overall I think I also need to read more about positioning on maps and places where tanks can use their strengths, as well as learning better the armor models. If any input could be made on my answers it would be greatly appreciated!. Thank you very much for your patience
  15. Ive found myself disliking heavily any sort of slow tank, I simply can't seem to get them right anyhow... Only OP things like Defender seem to click to me, light tanks are okay tho, mediums too. Still I was wondering if anyone could give me any pointers on which are the most detrimental mistakes I make? it's fine to use any sort of language, I want the raw truth, even if your only opinion is "uninstall" Thank you very much for whoever that reads, patience. http://wotreplays.eu/site/3896016#winterberg-star_dust-tiger_ii http://wotreplays.eu/site/3896016#winterberg-star_dust-tiger_ii http://wotreplays.eu/site/3896021#pilsen-star_dust-tiger_ii http://wotreplays.eu/site/3896022#swamp-star_dust-tiger_ii http://wotreplays.eu/site/3896023#arctic_region-star_dust-amx_50_100 http://wotreplays.eu/site/3896026#erlenberg-star_dust-amx_50_120 http://wotreplays.eu/site/3896027#fisherman_s_bay-star_dust-amx_50_120 In general, thinking back and with a bit of instrospection, I figured I rush way too much to action when I'm on bottom tier, there also seems to be a very huge problem with my damage capacity many times needing way too much time to effectively do anything relevant, the matches that bother me the most are the last 3 ones since I really like the support roles but I seem to fail miserably at it. There's a bunch of 0 damage or mediocre damage replays that I've got available. I really need any advice I can get, thank you very much tankers!.
