    Holy shit, so glad I played it again today... This also was my last mission in the IM's to complete with honors for MT's... Apparently, you get a 150K bonus for all 60 with honors.

  2. This tank is stupid good, now, with the changed MM...

  3. Some still keep the torch alive... Though it's been a while since I've seen anyone in it...
  4. Congrats, WoTLabs: Was 1 game away from 50% and selling my M37... 1/7 tonight, and 7 games away, now.

    Karma for my earlier status? Or RNG wanting me to inflict more seal-clubbing?

  5. Jesus shit fuck, today's marathon's were a bitch... tapped out after 50% on Black Bear and IS-6B, did complete the T-34B, though...

    NATO: 10
    Nazi: 8
    Warsaw: 9

    Current standings... I might have to buy tokens... these missions are getting rougher.

  6. What type of CFL's are you using? Bear in mind, there's some that'll replicate "close" to natural light, provide a warming/yellow light, or a "soft" light, among others... whatever the fuck the last one means. It might be as simple as that. Alternately, maybe get a light blue gel to toss over a light, to counter the yellow. Edit: Consulted with my wife, who's got better than normal color vision (as opposed to my colorblind ass), and used to stage manage productions, so has an eye for lighting. Check into the following solutions, in addition to changing your CFL's: -Rig a temporary/permanent divider/backdrop. Go with light grey, but ensure it's been both pressed and stretched, to present a smooth front. -Paint the walls, but in the interests of domestic harmony (with however painted the room yellow) leave one wall yellow as an "accent" wall. Common trick in realty recently, and you can leave the wall behind your computer/camera rig as the one, as it'll do the least to change the picture.
  7. Premium Account is the biggest factor. I usually don't do a focused credit grind, but the few times I have, I'll run my stronger premiums (both in general ability and my ability to play) and pop a credit reserve if I have them. But, I've enough that I play them just like my grinding tanks - get a win, move on to the next. Even if running in stronks, I'll try to rotate out tanks each match, spreading the exp love around, while still getting credits. Pref MM tanks help, though the VIII's have it rougher... the VII's are all decent though. Running the Premium lights is also decent for earning, as with the new MM, they're fighting lower tiers much more often.

    Fair and balanced clubbing.

      All those downvotes just for Aceing it, Imagine if you 3 marked it.

      Tier IV, can't MoE at all, even if NA ever unfreezes those damn things.

      However, M41, M44, M40/43, M53/55 (2 MoE currently), T92? I could try those...

  9. Rude. Moar Prem HE for you.

    So, I now own the Fat Max - Is it a better St Emil?

    Rammer/Optics/Net? Or do GLD/Binos need to replace one of them?

      I like the Dicker Max. It's got fantastic view range and amazing gun depression. I used it for a ton of personal missions (e.g. do X times your HP damage, etc).

      I suck at it and I hate playing it and playing against it. Only non-turreted TD I ever liked was Jagdtiger and to an extent SU-100 and Hetzer.

      That gun on the Jagdtiger sure does make up for a lot of other flaws. ;)

  12. I am so bad at this... But I just ground everything, only play a tank until it gets a win, and eventually learned most/all playstyles. So, whatever you find fun... but definitely think how YOU could have done better, each round.
  13. I kinda think that the 50% swing in RNG is partially to blame for that, on WG's end. +/- 25% on penetration and damage is a LARGE swing, and it does help to minimize skill by introducing more randomness. However, I feel that it also fosters a greater resentment towards players who're "better", as the average player would be good... but RNG just fucks him. It's not his fault the shell bounced, it's RNG. It's not her fault the tank survived the shot, it's RNG. Et cetera... Now, the last online game I was involved in at a high level of play was City of Heroes/Villians, and there, the "good" players weren't villified, necessarily. One, it was primarily a PvE game, so "winning" had many different and individual goals, though there were some common markers (raids/instances - speed of completion; survival/clearing of outsized/challenged mobs). However, I do remember that in PvP, the same group of people I ran with were known less positively, again, due to being able to dominate what little PvP scene there was in the game. I also dabbled in LoL, but that entire community makes WoT looks like a kindergarten filled with Pollyanna's. There is a lot of resentment in that game, but it's generally directed towards immediate teammates, and not a known 1% upper echelon... "I could be Diamond, but my teammates always fuck me into Bronze/I can't be bothered to try hard", and those upper echelon players are known, recognized and praised for their skill. Could it have something to do not only with the giant swing of RNG, but also the steep and continual learning curve that WoT presents? LoL has 3(?) maps, WoT has over 40, right? Similar levels of tanks/heroes, though a given tank doesn't have the potential to face EVERY other tank in a match. Additionally, there's known and intentional imbalances... every tank is NOT designed to fight every other tank 1v1... Is an interesting thought to game theory on, and something someone more intelligent/versed in it would need to visit.
  14. Such an appropriate emoji for that line...
  15. TIL: You can do campaign missions in Grand Battles.
