  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 181 is more than enough pen for a pref MM medium.
  4. its pretty good now after the gun handling buff, without a doubt the best cred maker with nothing even coming close.

      Biggest dpg boost was switching from pure HEAT to selective AP, HEAT is just way too slow at mid-long range targets.

      Even then it was mostly luck, blew through the last 5% in 6 games in which 4 of which i had 10k+ combined.

      T95E6 next? @CarbonWard :doge: it's another one with an absurd req, considering how bad the tank is

      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

  6. Since there isn't really a topic regarding this matter, figured i might as well start one, the goal of this thread is compiling tips, experiences, clarifications on what is/how to do Individual missions. Updates will be frequent(I hope). Mission Guide Light Tanks Tank Destroyers Medium Tanks Heavy Tanks Canc- Artillery Technical questions: SPG-2:Hidden and Dangerous: Deal 500 damage, remain unspotted during the battle. Does it mean deal 500 damage before you are spotted, or unspotted during the entirety of the battle? SPG-11:The Area of Effect, damage 2 enemies with a single shot Does tracking(no real damage) count as part of the mission, or is actual damage required? SPG-9: Lead'em Till You Hit Them: deal damage to an enemy vehicle moving at 10km/h or more. Does ramming constitute(despite the title suggesting actual firing of a shell)? LT-10:Casper's Revenge: cause 1000 spotting damage, remain unspotted. What does unspotted mean? Unspotted for the entire battle? Unspotted until 1000 spotting damage has been dealt? Unspotted at the moment in which the spotting damage is done? MT-4 (4)4 times detrack and damage enemy vehicles (destroy 3 detracked vehicles, win) Can you detrack the tank tank multiple tank multiple times, or must you detrack+damage multiple tanks? HT-3 (1)destroy one internal module or crewmember of enemy tank (win, survive) Judging by the fact that it says internal, guns, tracks, optics may not count. Also, need to confirm whether modules/crew death via fire count towards the mission goal, or whether only crew/module as a direct result of a connecting shell counts towards the mission.
  7. I use shift to snipe, but i also use aslain's auto 2x default scope.
  8. Enough said about this tank. Whichever designer thought it was a good idea to give a tier 6 medium the mobility of the most agile tier 8 light tank, i want what you are smoking.
  9. You got speed comparable to 34-3, far better frontal plate, gun with same aimtime as 34-3 with better accuracy and dpm. Oh, and a shit load more health, only thing 111 doesn't have is camo, which isn't that important for a close range brawler. overall wz111 is just a tank with overloaded stat for its tier and MM, and it shows when its the fourth highest dpg tier 8 HT just below 252 and IS5. http://www.vbaddict.net/statistics.php?tier=8&tanktype=3&nation=0&premium=0&modeid=0&team=0&battles=1000&groupby=0&fieldname=damage_dealt&server=
  10. Neither, just get 111.

    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.

      how you dealt with Maus?

      Carbon...set up. Always set up. Vstab rammer aaaand ?

    4. CarbonWard

      CarbonWard

      Vstab rammer vent.

      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.

  12. the new french tanks are just weak to raw penetration, thankfully tier 9 tanks tend to not see a lot of tier 10 TDs and instead tend to see a shit load of pref MM tier 8 HTs.
  13. Where i live 470 is more expensive than 10606gb thanks to etherfarms.
  14. GLD for anything that has to shoot and move(JT/T95/Wz120) Vent for anything that can snipe and need acc, but for those tanks(outside of sweds) you are better off with a binoc to be able to solo push a lane.
  15. Well, i've officially peaked, its all downhill from here bois!

      Well it took me 5mins to find out with whose account he was padding with....TBH it's Carbon own faulth for getting over 5k dpg, it kinda sticks out:gachi:

      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.

      Now I face the difficult decision of should I buy OP t95 or OP Caern

  17. You can't really fairly compare anything to the caern, caern is just batshit insane and so is the Caern AX. Better comparison would be to the patriot. 2439 vs 2085 stock dpm : fucking hell, 2439 stock dpm is insane, patriot was hailed as the high dpm HT but its got nothing on this 0.31 vs 0.36 acc: 0.05 accuracy is huge, thats the difference between skorp and Rhm's 12.8cm. Way better turret, Patriot has shot traps on the lower mantlet that will make shots go straight into enginedeck, plus weak 180mm plate right below mantlet that is penned often, Caern AX has no such thing.

      i traded in my is6 for the 34-3 since its horrible to play now. hopefully the 34-3 will be fun

      ìs that a Kripp reference? @CarbonWard

  19. That looks like 72-3 degrees at most if im being generous, which would put it at 50/50 with 330 HEAT, but if you account for shell curvature its gonna be 80/20. If im not being generous and its only 70/69 degrees when its pretty much cheese, and i think the way the tank is presented makes the sloping looks more impressive than it actually is.
  20. HEAT will autopen that 100mm sloped UFP.
  21. Su101 at tier 7 is fucking hilarious. 2400 dpm 330HEAT 20hp/t 0.1gun dispersion.

    Final impression on CDA105.

    Pretty good on most maps, def one of the most versatile tanks around, also most flammable dare i say.

      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.

      Every time carbon screens these, I am constantly reminded of how relatively shit I am.

  23. If the mobo was cheap enough i wouldn't mind recommending a cheap mobo+8400, since the 6c6t with 3.8ghz TB will last at least 2-3 years at 1080p high/ultra high graphics setting and 4-5 years mid-low then you can jump to something different entirely, but right now the mobo is just prohibitively high priced.
  24. the Z370 mobo are hella expensive though, despite 8100 being almost as good as 7500.
