  1. 15 games yesterday. had some fails early on trying to make stuff work w/ a platoon. then had to go eat so took a few minute break, came back to restart my session. ended the day w/ 80% wr and 2185 Wn8 w/ session stats logging my games for the day. played all tier X.

    All well and good until I realized I ran a nearly 500,000 credit deficit with premium account. 

    how in the world do you all afford to play tier X all the time?

      Most 10s make credits or at least break even on a prem account so long as you connect most of your shots and aren't spamming gold. Not taking a ton of damage doesn't hurt either, which usually entails being smart with positioning and trading.

      I don't.

      Playing minimal matches per day coupled with regular strongholds keeps my credit income balanced.

  2. Greetings all, I have come to the conclusion that I am rapidly approaching the brick wall when it comes to self improvement. My main problem is recognizing when I can be aggressive vs being too passive. I tend to try and force plays to happen when my team sits idle, content to wait and I get punished for it seeing as I'm the only tank the enemy can shoot at. My awareness of common fire lanes seems to have fallen off with introduction of new maps like Pilsen and Overlord as well. I know I have the potential to do much better, I just need some help smoothing out the edges so to speak. My play times are ~5 PM to about 10 PM eastern most evenings. I learn best via the "Monkey see, Monkey do" method. No amount of textbook learnin' is going to help me understand my mistakes/pitfalls I'm afraid. I have been trying to beat my head against the wall to see if anything shakes loose, and I am rapidly approaching the point of utter frustration in an attempt to reach my lofty goal of 3k recents w/ 68% wr about. What I really need help identifying is A: what am I REALLY good at? (I own so many tanks I don't even know anymore), and B: how can I work those core concepts into vehicles of other classes to really round out my ability across the heavy and medium tank spectrum. I appreciate any and all input. I have a replay thread that I put up recently with some examples of my recent gameplay for those who are interested. Thanks in advance, Sov
  3. Lookin for some help here. Not tanks related. Anybody round here have a clue about anything drones? looking to pick up a quad copter that has a particular feature set for 4k video, plus has a good GPS for 3d mapping applications for no more than around $850 USD help.

      Some guys I work with fly drones for doing roof inspections. I'm 95% sure they were flying the DJ Phantom 4, which has the sort of features you're looking for;

      https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_2?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=dj+phantom+4&rh=i%3Aaps%2Ck%3Adj+phantom+4

      So, a bit above you're price range (maybe find one used?). I'm unsure if the one I linked has the sort of GPS stuff you'll need. The people I know didn't actually use these drone for work; they custom-built a drone of their own with all the features they wanted. So, depending on your definition of 'good' GPS, you may need to revise your price upwards. The video was good enough for everything you could want, and the stabilization was shockingly good. YMMV, do more research before you buy etc...

       

  4. Sometimes separation is the best thing. When a game starts to intrude on your other responsibilities, it is time to take a minute and set it down. Thx for the brief education on how to tank man, hope the flu thing you got didn't deck you that hard. Its been real. Its been fun, I can say its been real fun. Catch ya on the flip side? If you haven't give the original Mass Effect Trilogy a go. good story. Can't say so much for Andromeda. Haven't played it yet. XD Take it easy man. 07 Sov.

      It's not a good idea at all... let's just put fragile issues into a show based around lightheaded retardation, autistic kids watching it might relate a little but as a whole I think it's making fun of what is a very serious issue

      Aren't all the Muppets autistic as fuck? what's the point of this?

  6. Ok fellas Im going to start dumping replay files in here in an attempt to find help to figure out wtf I am doing wrong. There will be both good games and straight up fails going in here. for the date of 3-14-17 http://wotreplays.com/site/3429131?secret=9e9b8fdb6ac337f1df92bf9ae7c724b7 http://wotreplays.com/site/3429136?secret=9e9b8fdb6ac337f1df92bf9ae7c724b7 http://wotreplays.com/site/3429140?secret=9e9b8fdb6ac337f1df92bf9ae7c724b7 http://wotreplays.com/site/3429143#highway-sovereign_m-koda_t_50 http://wotreplays.com/site/3429144?secret=9e9b8fdb6ac337f1df92bf9ae7c724b7 http://wotreplays.com/site/3429145?secret=9e9b8fdb6ac337f1df92bf9ae7c724b7
  7. I'm tired of trying to be aggressive in big slow heavy tanks on malinovika. that map is just not conducive to heavy tank gameplay at all. WG wants you to brawl at the top of the hill, but that is impossible to accomplish when there is massive amounts of artillery everywhere just waiting to shit on you. FK it. just going to play that map TD style from now on, even if my camo is shit. Tired of getting clicked on. 

    /end rant.

      Onoes not every map is designed for heavy tanks! Better add more corridors! /s

      In all seriousness, I'm thankful maps like Mali and Prok exist. Mali is the only map in the game where the vision game feels super important and is the primary reason I liked the t20 so much. The more I play the map the more I agree that the hill is a trap, as the western trench seems to have replaced it as -the- spot that determines games.

      Someone needs to go hill, but without the team supporting it with high-vision meds and lights in the valley underneath it and on the hills overlooking the lake, you're going to struggle, as even if you win it there's bushes at the base of the hill with cover blocking shots from the enemy side at both bases of the hill.

      While you're complaining about drawing Mali in superheavies, I'm drawing Steppes in PzSfl4, a map which I don't know how to play in anything but mediums.

      Taking the windmill will give you cover from a direct hit and as long as you hold the position they won't push the hill, just make sure you have people backing you up

    4. WhatTheSkara

      WhatTheSkara

      that's why MM should take into account a shitload of things before putting 30 tanks together on a random map.

      you should read the lineup first:

      enemy has a lot of mediums? go 1/2 line

      enemy has a lot of slow bricks? go hill

      enemy has arty? redline until you get to the hill and pray they don't have yoloscouts.

      enemy has TDs? go hill because they will most likely sitting on the small hills right above the lake, or towards the red line.

       

      Either way once you've cleared the hill you just drop down through the village and go to the enemy td hill..

      pushing the A (or 0 depending on your spawn) usually results in a farm fiesta for tds and campers.

      I actually stopped the 155 because the account I was playing it on was too poor for regular heat rounds.

      I got it to 90% moe with only AP so you could totally do it if you got the patience.

  10. The teams last night were rage inducing levels of stupid. I guess the weekend warriors were late to the party and arrived on a Tuesday. 

  11. Remember a few days ago how I said I got my first Kolo-baller-novs? well I finally got around to pulling that replay 

    http://wotreplays.com/site/3400462#el_halluf-sovereign_m-strv_74

    feel free to go all ESPN analyze the play back on this. I'm sure there is plenty I can improve on. 

     

  12. I got my first Kolobanov's medal....ever yesterday morning. Holy carp.

      My first couple of Kolobanovs were as the last defending tank alive as the timer ran out during the assault game mode, not very epic!

      I don't play assault. this was encounter on El Halluf actually. and I won as well. Will upload replay and post as an edit later, if I remember XD

      My one and only Kolobanov was won by accident, on the Overlord map. There was 2 of us left, i was in an MT-25, the other was a French heavy, we were on the enemy cap (south), hiding behind a building. There was 6 enemies left. I was between the HT and the building, i was the one with all the cap points, the HT joined me a few seconds before the enemy team cornered us. Instead of shooting me for a 1-shot, they shot at the HT, and the timer kept ticking, they killed the HT, and i figured that was it. I didn't see the timer, didn't look at the screen, the game ended, and when the "win" song played, i was shocked. When i saw i got a Kolobanov, i had to look at the replay to figure out what happened.

  14. That moment when a dum dum such as myself puts into practice all of the stuff that I learn from WOTLABS People and the prpl players in my new clan and it WORKS :disco:

    Yesterday: 52% wr and 1484 wn8. 

    Today: 72% wr and 2583 WN8. 

    Now I just gotta keep doing that every day and keep getting better. #Learningthings

  15. thats another good idea. but it doesn't really solve the problem of getting bopped across the map in a big slow heavy brick tank on the way to an engagement.
