    Winning is now more RNG based than ever?

    I have a suspicion that is very old data. VBaddict uploads don't work with 1.0 maybe? Filter OP link for T8-10, and standard only, and swamp T1 has more battles available than a current map like El haluf.
  3. I hear you, but with no arty at all, lots will just play hulldown tanks and stay in their little hole/dip farming damage until they get dug out at the end, which is in it's own way also a bit stupid. At least with the few second warning mechanic you know you haven't been one-shot by someone with only 500 battles on their account.
  4. Doesn't need a class for that - could just borrow the mechanic from that other mode (rampage?) where a player gets to make an arty shot as a bonus after accumulating enough damage / spotting or whatever.
  5. Does mentality change if you have 50k+ battles and already own all/most of the tier X you want? At that point, less pressure to accumulate credits so can be more liberal with premium ammo? (hopefully somewhat balanced by better judgement on where prem ammo is appropriate?)

    Noob (1200 overall, 1900 recent) LFC SH/toon

    Have you tried the clan finder tool on wot webpage? If you go to a clan page on wot website, it will show you the number of skirmishes played at each tier in last 28 days (and win % at each tier). like so:

    Hi Wessmen, ping one of the [-VM-] recruiters ingame (maybe briankreiser) and they'll get you an invite - regular, casual T6/T8 strongholds - no pressure, no obligation, no minimum participation, just have fun, and try not rage too hard when RNG ruins your day Though with your playing hours, longer term if you want organised fun you might have more joy with a clan in an eastern european time zone.

    Ranked battles in WoT

    In the live QA video on friday they said they'd learned from the T22 fiasco: ranked battled would only be available for an unspecified number of hours per day to avoid entire clans syncing in at 4am. Very possible those hours will clash with CW though.
  9. Hola hxdoom, your best bet is w-uni / havok community - for six months or so, When wn8 is 1100 then you will have many more options.
  10. broken arm... yay for arta!

  11.  fun with physics... 


  12. And how much the fortunes of WN8 realignment have buffed/nerfed their overall since they last played a game

    FC available (not me)

    Hola, good (not frightened to experiment) FC is looking for clan. His WN8 1850 ish, but he's great FC. Would suit active blue+ clan LF FC with fresh ideas. If you clan doesn't compete on Tier X (maybe T8) global map then dont even waste his time. See here: Tchao, Sylvan *sheds a little tear*

    SU-100, the thread, 400 alpha in tier 6

    Bought this back today for TD4-8 mission as it's the recommended tank on the Best Tank for... thread. I hated it - derpy 122mm missed everything unless fully aimed in. Re-sold it after 10 fail battles and re-bought the hellcat. Did mission on 3rd try. Just thought I'd share that, as you were....

    Škoda T 25

    1304 base xp = 1st ^^disappears after 30 days? 1442 xp = Ace A fun tank, have been trying it a bit in SH with mixed results (dpg is higher than I get in other tanks, but also tends to cost me too much in ammo (especially when other team camp in O-Is)... would rather play bromwell or type and make some credits if I'm going to lose braincells playing t6 sh).
  21. what do Czech crews say when shell penetrates enemy? Toasterino?

  22. Finally managed Incinerator mission for 260... so many hundreds of games. So many different tanks... thank fuck that's out of the way. Happy New Year :D

    1. Deus__Ex__Machina


      lol I've heard from many people that all the 260 missions seem easy compaired to that one fire mission.

      It was a complete pain in the a$$... I feel brain damaged :)

  23. PFU is 50 days old today (yay!). Campaign result = 87th place. Reward tanks secured = 46. Summary: We were somewhat naive about T6 strats and tiktacs which caused much butthurt during the first week - and left us dangling around 150th place after part 1. Tier 8, we made a good start, but not good enough on hitting targets consistently. After 3-4 days we'd pushed up to 90th, but reached the conclusion that top 50 was very unlikely, so focus switched onto getting maximum players over the borderline. Much(occasionally salty)[<-- all still friends ] debate was had about what the final target for tanks would be, averages taken, concentration heads applied. Tier 10: landings. many, many landings... FC given free choice of online players for first game (usually one of the toughest under current ELO system), before high-fp players substituted out for those more in need. Conclusion: farm that influence before next campaign, only to find WG change the rules at the 11th hour. Personal thought... was nice to play CW without having to worry about BS arty/bomber consumables. Personal highlight: taking down SED (10-0) and NOS (10-7) in consecutive games to secure a landing tourney at the start of tier 8. kudos deserved: PTS-D for being in similar position to us influence-wise, and still nailing a top 20 spot. Doing things the hard way bois See you on the battlefield, Sylvan
