  1. T-34/100: All the 'Meh'

    This tank is fucking garbage lmao If it's gonna be this slow it could use an armor buff or a gun accuracy buff. I don't even care about the pen, I can work with 175mm pen at tier 7. But for fuck's sake there's literally zero reason for this to have the armor, speed, and size of a barn and a derpy as fuck gun

      Don't worry as you can see Ivan and Vladimir in the background are discussing on how to fix these problems for you. WG working as intended

      Yeah, I don't understand why there can be so many tier 10 tanks in the queue and I still have to wait for several minutes every single time. Something is screwy with the matchmaking. 

  3. How to balance the 268-4?

    nuke the armor or nuke the mobility. That's literally it. It's absolutely retarded that it has both
  4. T49 -- Land Arty in a Bite-Size Package

    lul yea same. oh well at least you didn't detonate me or set me on fire, i'll take it
  5. T49 -- Land Arty in a Bite-Size Package

    Haha oh shit that was you? I remember thinking to myself I was gonna get counter-blapped when I crested to take the shot and I had to repair my tracks and suffer a broken ammorack for the next 90 seconds... You guys won though. I did blap your heretic T49 for 850ish but i couldn't finish him, was too low health because some motherfucker rolled 900 on me in the opening 45 seconds of the game edit: tfw you roll higher than the other guy https://gfycat.com/FamiliarTiredGossamerwingedbutterfly for HD also i can't believe our heretic dove you, died, and didn't even finish you off what a garbage misuse of a T49
  6. Here's some super :triggered: pubbie wreckage in literally the most cancerous way possible

    Forgive me father, for I have sinned

     

    And just to keep in the theme of complaining about pubbies that every other status before this one was doing, we lost this game like 15-3

  7. Object 268 version WTF were they thinking?

    yes
  8. The Untold Truth about the Somua SM

    I guess? Hopefully he'll actually weigh in on it when he's not busy being on his own diet of cough syrup
  9. The Untold Truth about the Somua SM

    @Trobs has this tank and he describes it as if a Lorraine and a 50 100 had a baby and the baby had cardboard armor plates strapped to the paper hull.
  10. Object 268 version WTF were they thinking?

    Tfw I play arty sometimes and focus these tanks exclusively until i don't have a shot or they're dead (or I'm dead) and I realize that cancer is the new chemo
  11. T49 -- Land Arty in a Bite-Size Package

    Personally, yeah. Vents/Vstab/Optics + Cola is what i'm currently running and I've never thought to myself "Gee i would much rather have a 1.8 second faster reload instead of being able to outspot enemy light tanks at 400m+". I've found that counter-scouting by simply popping their sixth sense and making them break off before they can spot any of my dudes (or me) is far more effective than having to use my gun to do it.
  12. i had this guy on the enemy team today. He camped base in a WZ-111-14 on Abbey, did 0 damage, got 7 XP for the match. I only recognized his name because of your post. He wasn't even afk, his turret was turning and his tank moved a few times... but he didn't fire a single fucking shot.
  13. IS-M - Is Serb > Murazor?

    I'll be honest, I've considered re-buying it and trying to do HT-15.3 with it
  14. IS-M - Is Serb > Murazor?

    I didn't find a thread for this tank so here goes. I've only played a few games in it so far and I refused to play it stock because lol 175 pen in tier 10 games nice meme. I'm not really going to go over the stats because you nerds can look it up yourself, I'm sort of looking for other people's thoughts and impressions on the tank itself. Do you like it? hate it? think it's mediocre? Why? Against tier 8's, it's hilariously good. The side armor is too thick to be overmatched by anything and nominal thickness tends to negate the damage you get from HE spam (which has happened to me twice). It's hard to over-angle when side-scraping since the extra T H I C C gives you a lot of wiggle room. The curved shoulders on the front are pennable if whoever you're fighting can aim for them, but there's a sweet spot angle that lets you both hide the shoulders and still poke your gun out around the corner, while bouncing everything that doesn't have 270+ pen. Turret is pretty strong and can bounce some crazy shots, and the single weakspot (the cupola) is so flat and tiny that hitting it is more dependent on prayers to RNG than on careful aiming. You can pretty much ignore any tier 7's or 6's that aren't derp guns or behind you - I've had full side-on shots get bounced before from tier 7 heavies and the like, so even if you're in the open just angle yourself a bit and you're p much good to go against lower tiers. This was my first match in it and all I did for 80% of the game was sidescrape off a building across the bridge in the south: In tier 9s, it's... okay. Against dumber players in 9's you'll generally have no problem baiting shots into angled side armor - the lower plate, of course, is butter, and anyone who knows to aim for the shoulders will ruin your shit and probably set you on fire, but the tank is new enough that it's not a huge issue yet. Otherwise, I generally found success by watching the flanks for our bigger guns in brawling zones and bullying lower tier heavies or keeping higher tier heavies constantly turning their guns to deal with me. Tier 10s are generally crap but that's standard tier 8 tank matchmaking for you. At least there's 7 tier 8 tanks on the enemy team to beat up on. I don't have a real strategy for this yet since the thing is too slow to face off against mediums and the armor doesn't work against most tier 10 guns unless you're lucky or the enemies are bad - generally I just play it the same way I do in tier 9s, but with a more conservative and cautious approach. My main gripe with it is that the mobility is a little low - but I guess that's expected with the amount of armor it has. It generally does reach its top speed on hard terrain (which is like, 35kmh i think) but you won't be keeping up with mediums or anything. Oddly enough I haven't gotten shot enough to get set on fire a whole bunch yet, and while the gun depression is as bad as expected I knew what i was signing up for with a rear-turreted tank. For crew skills, I don't have them memorized right now but I have a fairly new crew in this - I think it's Sixth/snap/ORD/safe and then working on repairs. Equipment loadout is Rammer/Vstab/Vents, I carry 20 AP/8 APCR/2 HE, standard consumable loadout of medkit/rep kit/AFE. Oh, and for the past week I had two 1500+ base xp games and that wasn't enough for an Ace. Fun stuff, clearly people out there are having a lot of success with it so far. What do you guys suggest for crew skills in the future after BiA and repairs? I chose ORD just so I can get to the brawl slightly faster, but would clutch braking be a better choice? Does it get set on fire frontally often enough to make taking Preventative Maintenance an option? How do you tend to play it in heavily tier 10 matches, or on maps where the gun depression or lack of hard cover works against you? e: lmao 504 error when I tried to post - now I understand how people keep double, triple, or even quadposting their new threads.

    No such thing as overkill for viewrange IMO.
  16. Had some fella from THUGZ named antisniper in a match today while I was grinding out SPG15.3. Load in, he immediately says that the next three arty match he gets he'll TK all three (which is understandable I guess). Sure, eat a ban, why not. Then he sits in the spot I was going to fondle myself in for the first 8 minutes of the game (A9 on Murovanka south spawn) and doesn't leave until it's like 4 enemy tanks left and we've clearly won without his help. He did like 1k damage total. didn't THUGZ used to be a somewhat decent clan? On the other hand I did end up getting SPG15.3 that match
  17. Object 705...thread

    I haven't played mine yet mostly because I'm waiting til i can buy gold to not play it without the top modules. I haven't heard great things about it - the IS-M is supposedly better for its tier and the fact that this thing's side armor is 90 and the IS-M's is 120 seems to make that opinion more true than not... but I'll let you know again when i actually give it a few matches
  18. REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

      Honestly I find being top xp on my team to be harder than the damage requirement

      @PlanetaryGenocide it's easy but on lower triers  where it's super hard to get 2.5k assist and 3k dmg.

      Overall the mission seems needlessly difficult when you consider the lack of team play in this game - even platooning it's still a tossup as to whether the people you stun just medkit instantly or not

  19. T71 Fan Club

    Wew lad, another Ace Teamwork on a Friday afternoon on the NA server? Say it ain't so! But my temporary buddy in the Strv S1 helped me clean up the Patriot at the end because there's no way i would've been able to do it myself. He offered me the kill too since I had 7, but I A. didn't realize it, and B. bounced the last shell in my clip off the Patriot's side cause he turned to a good angle just as i fired
  20. Have WG done something to the scale in 1.0?

    It's probably because they have real backgrounds now instead of whatever shitty mountain skyboxes they used to use
  21. I WANNA GO FAST: The T-100LT Appreciation Thread

    I got my first ace in this over the weekend on Malinovka with 10k combined (7500 assist, 2500 actual). Outspotting other tier 10 lights at 400 meters is ridiculously broken lmao
  22. T71 Fan Club

    Pls the derp on the sheridan was nowhere near as fun as the T49 derp is. Don't worry though I made a good investment with the funds - I bought cola on discount with all the credits I got back from it and then some.
  23. T71 Fan Club

    That's like a third of why I bought the DA. It was basically: 1. The line's currently on track and it was on sale (and it was already unlocked for me because i had the 54e1 researched from the T49 during the LT change) 2. I need a tier 7 to play when I platoon that isn't the fucking 34/100 or the black prince () and it looked like fun 3. I have like 4 or 5 different American light crews of varying skill levels - I threw my old sheridan 3-skill crew into this one.
  24. T71 Fan Club

    so I bought the T71 DA today after realizing that i needed a fun tier 7 to play when I platoon with people - apparently, researching the 54E1 from the T49 pre-LT rework meant that I had the entire preceding line researched too, which is really fucking cool. Bought it on discount, threw on optics/vents/vstab, and went to Paris for my first match. Only got a first class with about 3k combined but god damn does this tank shit on tier 7 MM. Once I get the crew skilled up a little more in terms of viewrange and whatnot it'll be an absolute little monster even in T9. e: despite all the garbage teams today (or maybe it's just garbage teams in sub-tier 8 in general) I only took 7 games to ace this. My first match should've been an ace tbh but I missed out on a bit of easy damage that i shouldn't have. It reminds me of a less zippy/nimble pre-nerf bulldog with better camo but a worse autoloader clip. I can fux with it

    First 1.0 gif? First 1.0 gif. Also my first 1.0 Ace, feels good man. This is only special because it's my second Goomba stomp of the match plus a really lucky handbrake shot into the Tortoise
