  1. the buffed kv5 would have better armor than the Oho, which is more than armored enough even in tier 10 matches. Not to mention 2300 dpm (with 100% loader, so 2400+ with 110% loader due to cmdr) which is absolutely nuts.
  2. S1+ELC-Winterstorm-Plisen-Kharkov-Stalingrad=A shit load of damage.

      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

  5. fsaDglJ.png

      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.

    Obj705A - No one really plays this?

    well, thats an old line thats not optimized, 705A line is literally an original line made just to reinforce WG's new philosophy

    Obj705A - No one really plays this?

    for a tank that sidescrapes, its side armor is pathetic, 100+25mm track is shit, esp compared to say SC's 102+25+25(also with a 300mm bulge that blocks off the rear part of the side altogether. Basically from my experience, if you don't angle at ricochet angle, your side will get penned, every single time. Also, WG says they want to streamline the grind process so players don't have to suddenly change playstyle, then they introduce ISM, which has awesome side armor(infact, as an ISM you want to angle at 30 degrees as 20 degree angle would give your opponent very easy shot to your "pike") for its tier and great DPM. Only to have its end tier tank have atrocious side armor and terrible DPM. wut?

      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.

  9. 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:

       

  11. 705A afterthought.

      Would of marked it 20 games earlier if not for some seriously fucked mistakes i made.

      like flipped sideways on Ensk field, or afk RR run into Erlenberg lake.

      <j/k>

  13. speaking from experience 1050ti is kinda errrrrrr I would go for the cheapest 7700HQ+1060 i can find.
  14. CarbonWard

    AMX M4 mle. 54

    I only played with the 130, its quite adequate considering its other stats, 280 AP is more like 295 APCR, which is close to IS7. considering its speed and frontal armor,you can easily overpower the likes of IS7 and 5As when fighting for forward positions.
  15. CarbonWard

    Do you EVEN 90?

    on the move VR isn't important. Your reload is long enough that you can easily stroll into any bush between your reload and wait that 3 seconds.
  16. pretty good scout, otherwise meh.

    U9kNBRD.png

    Expected for 3 mark is about 2600 combined.

      So exactly at the same place where the amx 13 57 is :D

    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.

  17. CarbonWard

    Do you EVEN 90?

    Actually, Vent+Binoc+Vstab. This way with food i have 536 VR in a bush, with ELC EVEN's movement camo, i find myself able to sneak into a good forward bush even in the middle of a firefight.
  18. CarbonWard

    Do you EVEN 90?

    Camo is one of those things that gets incrementally better as you go up the scale. 45% is the ideal place as its the point where you can hide in a large bush and only be proxied at 50 meters by a tank with 500 meter VR Which is a big difference between that and say 35%, in which a 500M VR tank can spot you behind a large bush at 150 meters. 10% camo effective would decrease your visibility by 66% while camo spotting.
  19. CarbonWard

    Do you EVEN 90?

    Played 40 games today on a 3 and half skill crew. Not as bad as initially thought, but nevertheless, i think i can confidently im one of the better LT players on the server and im barely hitting my tier 8 LT average combined.
  20. CarbonWard

    Do you EVEN 90?

    Complains about Mauerbrecher selling like shit, releases ELC EVEN. Its like they got a grudge against their quarterly report.

    God Have Mercy On Us (WT E100 P)

    Old waffle was in a meta where VR was not particularly stacked, mediums with 490+ VR was a rarity back then, LT was underpowered and rarely played, arty would miss a fully aimed shot on a still target more often than not. Hell, 3 years ago you could farm 4k dmg on Muro north spawn by just going to the bush on the north end of the magic forest cause pubbies were that retarded and tries to enter the forest via open high road. Oh, and lets not forget Type 5. Old waffle worked because the meta allowed it to work.
  22. CarbonWard

    God Have Mercy On Us (WT E100 P)

    WaffenT would get creamed in the current meta. A tank with zero camo, 5 degrees depression, literally get auto lit by any tier 9/10 LT, hit by artillery that doesn't miss.
  23. CarbonWard

    Soo... who got a Type 59 this Xmas? :)

    181 is more than enough pen for a pref MM medium.
  24. CarbonWard

    Soo... who got a Type 59 this Xmas? :)

    its pretty good now after the gun handling buff, without a doubt the best cred maker with nothing even coming close.

      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
