  1. If you have a player named 777LN on your team don't expect anything out of them despite their stats. He spent most of the battle trying to snipe from cap in and IS-7 then drowned himself. He then said in chat, "I hope you liked my performance." 3/5/7 matchmaking is bad enough as it is but when one of your tier 10's tries to kill himself and fuck over the team its even worse. http://wotlabs.net/na/player/777LN
  2. Tier 8's haven't been as profitable as they use to be and they have been harder to win because you are bottom tier so often. I also find many tier 9 and 10 players hiding behind the tier 8s on their teams or just afraid to fight the enemy tier 8 tanks. To win playing tier 8s I have to hang back and play less aggressive than I normally do and save my HP for the end of the battle. If I get spotted I GTFO of the area and relocate or hide behind cover until I'm no longer the subject of the enemy team's attention. I've noticed I do better with mobile tier 8's since WoT 1.0 than I do with heavily armored less mobile tier 8s. A while back I started keeping track of my tier 8 tanks matchmaking in an excel spreadsheet. I had a streak of over 70 battles in regular MM tier 8s without ever being top tier playing 7-11 PM east coast time. Out of 129 tier 8 regular matchmaking tank battles: 3/5/7: 81 battles Top: 11 battles = 13.58% of 3/5/7 battles Middle: 19 battles = 23.46% of 3/5/7 battles Bottom: 51 battles = 62.96% of 3/5/7 battles 5/10: 40 Battles Top: 4 battles = 10% of 5/10 battles Bottom: 36 battles = 90% 5/10 battles All tier 8: 8 battles = 6.20% of all tier 8 battles
  3. In Vietnam. MSI is listed as, "GTX 1180 GAMING X 16GB GDDR6" Price: 31,800,000 VNĐ ($1,388.07) The ASUS ROG Strix GTX 1080 preorder listing was just taken down. Price: 34,860,000 VNĐ ($1,521.64) However, the retail box images on the listings look photoshopped. I'm not sure if they are a placeholder or just some retailer trying to get early sales and hold onto someone's money for a few months.
  4. This is how broken tier 8 matchmaking is these days.  Of my last 57 tier 8 battles I have NEVER been top tier and was bottom tier in over 75% of the battles.  Most of the battles were played between 7 PM and 11 PM east coast time.

      I played a few more tier 8 battles tonight.  A total of 62 tier 8 battles in the past couple weeks.  Zero tier 8, 15 tier 9, and 47 tier 10.  WTF?

    I wonder what the i7-9XXXK series CPUs will do with all core overclocking? Probably not much different until the die shrink.

    Steam Summer Sale 2018 June 21-July 6

    So far I haven't seen any games on sale that makes me go, "I have to get that for that price!" Everything that's on sale that I'd want is something I already have. I'm sure as more games go on sale I'll find something to get. I did see Voice Warrior on sale. Its a program that uses voice commands to execute key bindings and macros in games. It almost seems worth trying for the $3.99 sale price.
  7. Where is your Star Wars Galactic Empire edition Titan XP to complete the look? Is that case skin from Slick Wraps or somewhere else?

    AMD is offering a 16 core Threadripper to a few of Intel's 40th Anniversary winners https://www.tomshardware.com/news/intel-amd-sweepstakes-8086k-threadripper-1950x,37320.html If I won an i7-8086K I'd take the Threadripper swap deal, then resell the Threadripper to buy other hardware.
  10. My God, it's full of stars!
  11. Some asshole from argentina named immergefickt989809 spent the entire battle following me around and trying to push me out into enemy fire in my heavy tank and shot me with his TYpe 4. I have no idea who the player is. They weren't in any of my previous battles today. I have no idea why this asshole singled me out and had a hard on for me for the entire battle. http://wotlabs.net/na/player/immergefickt989809 Filing a ticket with Wargaming support will be 100% useless I'm sure.
  12. I was in the same situation. I was waiting for the white TG R6 or the white PC-011 Dynamic. I thought both would look good with my Asus motherboard which is white and grey digi camo. Then Newegg put the black TG R6 on sale for $119.99 with free shipping. The glass is so dark on my R6 that having a white case wouldn't matter unless I added a more lights than what comes with the AIO cooler and graphics card.

    I haven't see anything on the various hardware forums I go to mentioning this. What is the sample size? People I've seen on the forums who recently bought 8700K's are getting good overclocking results. No different than before.

    Depending on what source you go by, 80-85% of 8700K's can hit 5.0 GHz on all cores. I'm not sure if binning is required for a 1 or 2 core 5.0 GHz overclock.
  15. The i7-8086K is now on sale. Its an 8700K that has a 5 GHz single core bosot speed. MSRP is about $425 US. However for less than $425 US you can buy a delidded and binned i7-8700K that does 5 GHz on all cores. https://ark.intel.com/products/148263/Intel-Core-i7-8086K-Processor-12M-Cache-up-to-5_00-GHz https://www.anandtech.com/show/12940/intels-core-i78086k-cpu-now-on-sale 8700K delidded and guaranteed tod o 5 GHz: https://siliconlottery.com/collections/all/products/8700k50g I'd like to see how well the 8086K overclocks on all cores. A representative from Intel claimed its not a binned 8700K.
