      The most active this forum as been in months is a discussion about juice cleansing and the merits of vegetarian v. vegan v. normal eating.  Confirmation: WoT ded.

      @OOPMan that retarded Italian COuple did more bad than just put their kid on a vegan diet. You can have your kid on a vegan diet. It's just a PITA to do it and requires a lot of knowledge. Also the best for you and enviroment is flexitarianism with low meat consumption and lowered protein consumption (and caloric input) as you get older.

      I say all of the above as someone who loves meat, especially meat based soups and broths.

  3. Comprehensive “Best Tank for Mission” List FYI: Updating Coming with Patch 9.15 with the nerfing and buffing of several missions The thread for IM tips is quite possibly one of the most helpful in the forums right now, but much can be hard to dig through. I will be updating this thread periodically in the OP Also note, until the final mission of the set, (15th of each) completing secondary is not really my concern. Complete primary, move on until 15th missions Common Tanks To consider buying for missions All of these tanks can be used for all tiers and have a high likely-hood of being able to complete many missions of that set. Note, this is not comprehensive as some missions require # damage which can be especially difficult to do in some of these tanks. These tanks simply are "BAUS!" for completing many missions and should NOT be over-looked STUG IV Missions (All tanks must be tier 4 or greater) Light Tanks Medium Tanks Heavy Tanks Artillery Tank Destroyers T28 Concept (All mission tanks must be tier 5 or greater) Light Tanks Medium Tank Heavy Tanks Artillery Tank Destroyers T55A Missions.

      Go play with your son until the feeling goes away. It's too late for some of us but you could still make it. 

  5. 1) Fuck arty 2) Fuck arty 3) Fuck whomever TK's in Ranked. Its cancerous enough to play as is. You're a bitch for playing arty in ranked, but intentionally TK'ing in ranked mode should not be tolerated and is equally as bad as playing Arty in the first place

    Obj 277 - Just a worse 5A?

    No. Post buff. Armor is certainly not better than a type 5 either. One could only argue that when the IS7 is hull down, and only engaging from 1 angle. As soon as the IS7 must engage from more than 1 angle or faces HE, that pike nose gets weak as hell or it'll struggle to pen most other HTs. Hell, it doesn't even need to be but a 20-30 degree angle and the pike is vulnerable to HEAT, especially at the cheek area. As soon as you're not directly pointed at your enemy, you're vulnerable. The low pen and terrible gun handling mean you must expose yourself longer. 95% of the player base has no clue how to actually angle and minimize exposure

    Obj 277 - Just a worse 5A?

    I think you're playing a different IS7 than most of the server, then. its armor is bad beyond the turret, and then you're going to be up against Type 5's with prem HE anyway. The mobility is good: When going downhill. The gun handling means close range engagement only, which will mean even more accurate Type 5 shells. Everything the IS7 was good at, theres now 3-4 Heaviums which can take what the IS7 does but only slightly worse, while doing other things MUCH better. Hull Down: Super Conq with better APCR and DPM Mobility: 5A, 113, 277 and while having just enough armor in the turret, along with the 5A and 113 having better depression to work many of the same positions as the IS7 previously could Gun handling: Super Conq, 5A, 113, and 277 all rape the IS7 there, along with better premium ammo
  9. Bought the Corsair MX Brown keyboard. Falling more in love w/ the way it feels. Hating that its taking this long to re-learn how to type on a normal keyboard

    What is your FoV?

    120 ever since it became an option. It did take a bit to get used to, but worth

    Obj 277 - Just a worse 5A?

    We (VILIN) are using them a bit more when, like the above description, we need more mobility. Himmels hill play, Prok, Cliff, etc. Otherwise, we use 5As for that role
  12. I miss horribly the original Bulldog M41 with the 10 shot autoloader.

      Without this autoloader the Bulldog is boring af

      The T71 DA sort of scratches the itch tbh, but then again I never played the old T71 prior to the split

      Without the autoloader, the bulldog is meh. It's like the Vk2801 without the derp. Sad really.

    Prognosis of 705A?

    Exactly average, nothing special. Can hard carry in the right MM, unique gun given alpha, but not broken in one way or another so it doesn't stand out

  15. yeah one of the first things I did w/ my 1070 was replace the thermal paste w/ some of Noctuas. Being an EVGA founders w/ the blower style, figured it could use all the help the card needs to run cool. Im pretty sure thats the only remaining source of noise now within my case, and I have a long time to wait til the non-founders 11' series gets released

    Marine's Simple Replays

    Hey guys! Many of you already know me, but here's a quick rundown. I'll never be one to pump out 3 MOE's on my tanks. Im just not capable of shitting out huge amounts of damage across several battles in a row. Part of that is my play-style. Im more comfortable in a positioning engagement, than I am in a fast-twitch brawl. This can limit my ability to earn those 3 marks. Its good enough to get two, which I have on most of my tier 8+ tanks which I play a lot. Apart from turreted TD's which Im just learning how to play, I feel like I play all classes of tanks well enough and consistently enough. I play tier 5+, and will post replays across tiers 5 to 10. I stream from time to time, and will upload highlights to YouTube with commentary, or will record and post replays with commentary as well. From time to time I will do a replay pack of a specific tank. I did that last really a year ago when I did a 20 game each tier 10 challenge, with the BatChat highlighting that challenge while doing an average of 4k+ DPG across 20 games, and all of my other tier 10's well over 3k DPG. Right now, Im doing a "Padding" challenge, which means Im attempting to stay interested enough in playing well enough to get my recent over 3.5k WN8 and keeping over 65% recent WR, almost all solo and playing tier 8+ tanks. This means a lot of E50/M, BatChat, T55A, AMX 30p, IS7, CDC and my guilty pleasures, the T-34 (Tier 5 RU) and ELC AXM. Recent T-34 highlight from my stream Recording a replay with Commentary Current Favorite tanks in each tier 5: T-34, ELC 6: T-37, Bromwell, M44 7: E-25 8: Jp2, CDC, 13-90, learning to love the IS3 again 9: T55A, AMX 30p, VK-4502B, E50, M53/55 10: BatChat, AMX 50B, E50M, Leo1 Sad Fact: I do better in the T55A than I ever did in the 140, 62A, and T-54. Like, my DPG in the 55A is about 2800, while my 140/62A is around 2100-2300, and T-54 is just above 1750... Do not come here for RU Wedge replays I also watch these guys, specifically just to learn. Poltto Xena BigCheese256 Probably the most influential is @BigCheese256, whom I wish would be more active in these forums. His content is superb

    For 1.01, what's better for HT 15.3, S Conq or Maus?

    Super Conq would be the most consistent due to its gun and ability for its armor to defeat premium rounds most consistently. The Maus can probably spike its combined higher depending upon the MM, but you'll be consistently matched against Super Heavies, and the armor is not reliable once prem or standard pen exceeds about 320

  22. The T26E5 Patriot Coinciding with Veteran’s Day, WarGaming NA is releasing the newest tier 8 premium tank for the American nation, the T26E5 Patriot. Its a heavy tank, featuring a fantastic 90mm cannon with APCR rounds for both its standard AND premium rounds. Will this tank be worth it? Lets take a closer look Crew For my crew, I am using my T110E5 crew and a radio operator from my T32. All crew members have BIA, repairs, and I have 6th sense. There is no specialty which I would focus on, just get your repairs, BIA, 6th, and then work your typical crew skills such as vision and gun handling. Loadout Your tank carries 69 rounds, which is great because you’ll completely FLY through them given the chance. Your standard APCR rounds have 230mm of penetration, while your premium APCR rounds have 259mm. Until I have a better feel for the tank, I will carry 45 standard rounds, 20 APCR, and 4 HE. I have not tested the profitability of the tank spamming only premium APCR, but I do NOT feel like the profitability of the tank is great enough without personal reserves or Stronghold bonuses to make up for that cost. Equipment Two pieces of equipment are obvious: The Vertical Stabilizer Mk 2, and the Medium Caliber Gun Rammer. For your 3rd piece, it will depend upon your playstyle. In my opinion, running Vents is the way to go IF you’re going to use Cola. However, if Cola is too expensive for your taste, I would instead choose Coated Optics. Consumables For now, I am running a small med pack, a small repair pack and Cola. You could drop Cola for an auto extinguisher if you’d like to save a few credits, but as long as you’re not spamming premium APCR you’ll hardly notice the cost of the Cola. Armor In short: Its good. Frontally, you’re immune to most tier 6 and 7 Medium tanks, and immune to most tier 6 and 7 Heavies as your upper and lower plates of armor are about 185-190 head-on. You will troll D25-T (the Russian 122mm gun) with simple angling, and if you’re utilizing your depression, frontally you’re exceptionally strong against all opponents but tier 10 TDs. Your turret is slightly weaker than the T32’s turret, having an area outside of the mantle which features areas of 200-220mm protection, and your turret ring is a bit more prominent. Your sides, if over angled, can be easily penetrated. If you’ve played the T110E5 a lot, to advance in this tank its a much similar “walk” towards your opponent, attempting to make them shoot an over-angled area. The Good, the Average, the Bad Many of these strengths and weaknesses have already been touched upon, but it's certainly a good time to lay them out The Good: DPM of 2500 with Cola/Vents is AMAZING (5.7 second reload) Turret is exceptionally solid, with no over-matching area for 122mm guns to abuse Your frontal armor is exceptional overall for the typical US HT -10/+20 for your gun elevations 230 standard ammo pen 380 base VR is easy to extend out to max VR of 445m The Average: Shell Velocity on the APCR is nothing exceptional, barely over 1000 FPS Mobility is better than the T32, and worlds better than the T34 Overall gun handling is not quite like the Pershing, but its solid The Bad: 90mm gun has horrible alpha for a heavy tank (240 per round) Snap shots will seem to fly into no where from time to time Did catch fire with a hit to the engine area on the first hit Playstyle The armor profile allows for a much more varied approach than the T32, making it a better city brawler than the T32, T34, and Pershing. It’s much more like the Super Pershing, which can bully lower tiers frontally with little to no worries. Against its peer Heavy Tanks, it can trade 2 for 1 MUCH better than any other HT at its tier, in effect giving it the best alpha at 480. In this manner, its much like the 215B HT at trading its HP to get two shots off for each shot it takes in return. And of course, if you’re able to find a hull-down position without the threat of arty, you’re going to have an even better game. Replays Verdict Within the game files, this tank is listed as being 9700 gold, which roughly means about $45 USD. At this cost, this tank is absolutely worth it if you either need a credit grinder or a great American HT crew trainer. With the ability to get away with almost just standard rounds for the majority of your battles, this will grind out credits exceptionally fast, and be a MUCH more enjoyable play than the T34 US HT. I would buy it if I needed either one of these options
