    We Need More Russian Premiums (T-34/E)

    Well, it makes sense, since the project was not based on what was already a very rare variant Plus since everybody with an IQ >70 realises wg made the 57mm totally outclas the 76mm on the t-34, it would be nice to see *some* t-34 with the 76mm *sometimes* Also, it its a F-34, BUT it has almost the same pen values as the s-54, while retaining the aimtime an an almost identical rate of fire to the F-34 when mounted on the t-34 mod 42 turret. accuracy is halfway between the two guns on the mod 42 turret. Sure, it's no 57mm, but still… It only loses 10 metres of VR compared to the mod 42 turret (and gains 20 over the mod 40, because reasons) , despite having a turret which is like narrower and 25% lower without counting the mod 42 cupola. Looks noticeably less agile, though. Also, having more armour on the sides than on the front _ I know, angles, but still _ is… interesting (and should help with arty splashes ?) I'm intrigued, despite the fact it has the annoying t-34 crew configuration, where the commander is the gunner. If that's the second campaign reward tank, I's probably enjoy it more than the *shudders* StuG IV. Plus, it looks good imho.

    The return of Province

    Yeah, mostly my experience so far, both in a leo or in mid tier tanks. Proxy spotting tank who can't do shit about you because you're 15 metres below them is rather evil. I've had a type 4 grossly misjudge the height and crash to try and get me… Well, it made that you can't anymore park in a bush on your side with a pak36 or a DMax, activate your bino, go take a shower, and come back for a one sided victory scorecard and a scout + patrol duty combo.

    Renault G1 or the G1R and oh my goddess, what have they done...

    To make it even worse for the G1R, it has the same bloody retarded crew setup as the T-34 (Commander is gunner, and there's a radioman), so you can't even use it as a crew trainer for the AMX 30s. I ended up using the SARL, which is suprisingly fun (used the 75mm) (and apparently ended up being the leader of the EU WG ranking for the tank…) Also, well done, WG : buffing the Ballon de Rugby and the ARL, but not the 65t, wow.

      My only goal is to beat the morning paper when coming home after a night out.

  6. Friend of mind gifted me a Steyr WT for my BD.


    I'm almost tempted to refuse.

  7. what in the name of the Infernal Gods is this…
  8. At worst, it seems to be a rather interesting tank.

    Armored Loot Box Warfare

    The author of the old Wot-focused blog "for the record", who, correct me if I'm wrong, after a long career of "people besting me must be cheating" posting, got recruited by aw, that well-known WoT killer.

    VK 4502B: Troll or be Trolled Appreciators Guild

    So, with the crew focused weekend, I finally remembered that 1) I have the vkb bought since ages and 2) I've had the Tiger II 3-marked for a few months. So, elited the thing (only had to research tracks and turret), and gave it a go. Bloody hell, this thing can be hilarious. First game, tier IX Erlenberg assault, I rolfstomped the west bank and then the north west hilly redoubt. Second game, tier X fjord, east spawn, no enemy camping the middle road so I rolfstomped the path between the pond and the water tower hill and northward after. I'm certain that in less funneled situations this thing can fall quickly, but still, it felt *glorious*.

    Oh, and the Churchill I. Now trying the ARL V39 and the Churchill VII, while doing the 65t->51 grind and I guess the Leo proto. Also still trying the tiger P from times to times. Yes, I do hate myself.

      No surprising you're feeling burned out. You've been playing some of the most vile pieces of garbage in the game.

      I plan to play the Churchill GC someday.

  18. Happy day of the birth of the Unconquered Sun, Wotlabs.

  19. Been off the loop, what's the concensus on the Elc Even so far ?

    Tiger (P), how do I love thee? Let me count the ways...

    The hull armour is riddled with weakspots. The turret armour IS a weakspot. But, yeah, the most infuriating thing is the bloody gun. The tiger P looks like the retarded cousin of the Tiger H manned by the retarded cousins of the Tiger H crew.
  21. Ffs, how many soviet projects are there. I'm starting to suspect a descendant of Serb will invent a time machine in the future on the moonbase (which will have by then become Serbopolis), and will use it to go back in the 1940s and 50s, where he has been instigating a whole lot tank projects, so that 60 years after Serb can become filthy rich out of it and build a moonbase…

    HD map reworks

    Oh, yeah, interesting. Must be the answer to the current obvious inbalance of field being better laid out north and having an easier time firing down the main street.

    AMX M4 mle. 45

    Am playing the M4 45 again to get the XP for the *shudders* 65t, I'm having way more fun that what I remembered. Possibly because *nobody* expects you do do *anything* Plus, with a mere 15ish % holidays bonnus I manage to turn a decent profit despite APCRing like a petite femme de Pigalle.
