      I should try and finish my S1 three marks, think Im sitting at about 91%. The new maps really seem to favor kemping boosh fgts

      Wait those four maps were all removed? Thefuck?

      They were removed? I might even play this weekend then.

    Last mark before the "beta"'s end.

    5A still pretty fun i must say.

    1. king_spaniel

      king_spaniel

      Nicely done per usual.  What's the expected for the 3mark btw?

    2. CarbonWard

      CarbonWard

      around 5.1, significantly lower than what used to be(5.7)

  3. fsaDglJ.png

    Fuck, couldn't mark it in less than 100 games.

    But for reference, expected is around 5100-5150.

      Well i mean, i can pull the same dpg/winrate on a badger/SC/5A/907/430U, but i can see why pubbies hate playing against it, armor is really out of this world.

    3. nabucodonsor

      nabucodonsor

      You could pull the same dpg with anything, even with a Leo.

      So how would you compare this to the other top tier Xs? Do you find it overpowered? 

    4. CarbonWard

      CarbonWard

      Overall its one of the strongest tier X in the meta right now, high mobility+high armor means this thing could contest the map like no other.

      But in the hands of pubbies the weaknesses are also very telling, low acc, low dpm, slow rate of turn all means if you are not careful and get separated from your team you are dead meat.

  4. tVqmdDw.png

    First tier 10 session since new computer, smoooooooooooooooooooooooooth.

      Best way to do it. Weird though, that monitoring software should should 8 cores, not the 4 given that its a 7700k. Heres mine with the 8 core 1700x1Ivf2m3.png

    4. CarbonWard

      CarbonWard

      its showing core 0 to 7 on taskmanager, not sure why its not showing here.

  5. 22 games from 86% to 95, 430U's (un)expectedly high.

    pjBZitZ.png

    Great tank tho, at least for pubs its a superior 113.

    1. nabucodonsor

      nabucodonsor

      A 403u trades HP and gun depression (to the side which is kinda hard use if you are not used to it) for handling and better armour which nullifies the advantages the 113 has anyway. The extra protection compensates for the 15% less hp. Considering you can work around the gun depression it is obvius how much better the 430U is. And this is my problem with the tank, not the fact it is so good but it kills other tank's niche proving once again how bad that idiot Murazor is.

    2. mati_14

      mati_14

      6.6k combined? what the actual fuck? 430U reqs are higher than 907 or what?

    3. CarbonWard

      CarbonWard

      at 93% i lost 0.05 mark with 5100 combined, so i figured the 3 mark expected is around 5500.

      Also, 430 don't really lose depression compared to 113, with how the gun is positioned 113 is never gonna realistically be able to use that additional side depression anyhow without being suicidal.

      but still, 113 is still better than 430U in clan wars simply due to the extra HP, if it does get used at all these days, which not really since most clans opt for 268V4 and 5As as their mobile spearhead.

      @CarbonWard, did you check out the custom build (ibuypower) website first before buying it from Amazon. They usually offer shit ton of freebies and discounts? I believe shipping to Canada is free. There's president week sales going on right now.

      I'm building a 5-6k PC by the end of this year. :doge:

    2. monjardin

      monjardin

      Do you go for a lot of track shots, or is most of that assisted damage from spotting?

    3. CarbonWard

      CarbonWard

      Pure spotting, maybe some tracking purely due to how shit the accuracy is and how slow the AP shell travels.

      nah, got M60, 260, Type 5 and 430 coming up.

      Also, 7201 is one of those tanks that even for me i had to play 20-30 games to get acclimated and i was changing my playstyle slightly even into my 100th game, which isn't something that happens normally.

      Overall i'd say its a really good tank with a lot of depth

    3. DHP

      How muc time does it take you to do that 137 battles session ?

      4 days of  4-5 hours of 30-35 games a day.

  11. 0UKIAuS.png

    Thanks to a friend for lending me the M4 54 and let me spam 280 AP :MingLee:.

    Not a particularly good tank but actually fun in a sick sort of way.

      As for dealing with maus, go for the old face, aim fast and don't give him time to aim in on your hatch.

       

      Is it sometimes fun? yes. Is it sometimes frustrating? hell yes.

      Can confirm pretty amazing. Second screenshot I sat in one spot, bounced fucking everything while I sat and dpm'd everything I could before I was overwhelmed (thanks to arty for making you unable to move) :/ T30 APCR, Super Conq APCR, etc, reliably bounced. Its kinda ridiculous.

      This was on live server, also recently bought it back, have they buffed it again on the test server? I haven't looked at any of the patch notes and cba.

      They are pretty rare on EU. Completely agree on the flammable part, I have shot this TD max 5 times total and got one fuel tank fire on it.. with BC12t AP from the front.

      Yeah you kinda have to put FF directives, or else a single 122mm AP can end you.

      The turret is much stronger tho, i've gotten games with 5000+ blocked.

      and the shell velocity is nice.

       

      But its not strong enough to justify the price tag and how useless it is as a crew trainer, you can get tanks like Wz111/T26E5/Skorp/252/Lor40 which are much better as a crew trainer with better performance too.

  19. Fuck me this is the hardest mark i've ever had to do.

    3. Fulcrous

      Fulcrous

      nearly 100% sure its NA

    4. CarbonWard

      CarbonWard

      NA.

      Dpg wise it really doesn't matter as long as its 4700+, once you get to around 90% its just pure RNG(assuming you avg 5500 combined) for that 4-5 consecutive good games. I could of gotten this anywhere from 110th game and up but RNG and my own fuck ups prevented it.

  20. It took me 50 game sat this level of stat to just get 1st mark, this shit is officially deeper than 260.

      The cupola is actually 20mm thicker than that of the E5s and only one third the size, not even a 103B at 100 meters can hit and pen it it consistently, its possible the toughest "weakspot" in-game.

      As for turret, its about 280+ against HEAT minimum, meaning even 340 HEAT will probably only pen half the time, which is as good as it gets for a tier 8 tank.

    3. Unavailebow

      Unavailebow

      Guess I must be unlucky then. Most of my game in this ended up cupola or turret being penned by gold. APCR mostly.

    4. CarbonWard

      CarbonWard

      You probably shoudln't stand still, abuse chrysler's fast aim time, only poke when you are loaded.

      Use 3rd person to autoaim on the target and just reverse scrape, best done when you wait an additional 2 sec after you reload so they lose sight of you.

  22. 13 90 is definitely the strongest tier 9 LT f the patch, most expensive, too.

    1. RollerCoaster47

      RollerCoaster47

      Was the first ever non-premium tank I three marked back shortly after they added marks of excellence. Back then it was necessary to fire all premium ammo in it. Now though, I get by just fine firing mostly regular ammo. I love that most of these tier nine lights now have standard APCR rounds all with 200+ pen. Grinding all five light lines because they're all so much fun, well, except the WZ-132 at tier eight, still pretty mediocre.

    2. SaintLaurentius

      SaintLaurentius

      Carbon wouldn't be himself if he didn't fire full gold when grinding marks for people. 3,4k dpg wow! Havent you thought about the fact than when you make stats like that for plebs it's kinda obvious it's somebody elses padding?

    3. CarbonWard

      CarbonWard

      @SaintLaurentius

      Yeah, but they don't care when i tell them so i guess they don't mind. Besides its not really as much a mark grind as its a grind from 13 90 to 105.

      You probably used all gold ammo and hacked like a cheating uniscum to accomplish this, so my moral compass will only allow me to give you a light pat on the back ;)

      On a more serious note. Only $15? I would charge at least double that if I were in your position. That’s pretty much minimum wage for playing seven games that you did as work. But also I’m kind of amused that people actually pay for this kind of stuff. Just seems silly.

    3. Archaic_One

      Archaic_One

      It only took 7 games?  So, let me get this straight - somebody that was able to 2 mark a 260 paid you to play the last 7 games to ensure the 3-mark?  Thats thats ABC after-school special level insecurity right there.

    4. mati_14

      mati_14

      Archaic lol, are you blind or what? nobody can even get close to 5k dpg. Xits did it with T57 and Strv, while carbon got 5.3k avg with Strv. also that account was played for carbon before and he showed a pic about his 260 3rd mark grind was going like 8 months or so, but never ended it, 7 took him the final push for the triple
