  1. Since when was it's pen so low? Ive always had 356mm pen on my standard ammo
  2. Gotta say: All the meta shifts in the world, and this tank never really feels underpowered nor overpowered. Its always just. right.
  3. This coming back would give me a chance at fulfilling my WOT Dream: 1-Shitting one with a 183mm HESH
  4. The best pubbie rage inducing moment is when I two-shot one with an E100. I knew he was on reload, and just wasted that fucker. Think it was my highest tier 10 base EXP game, something over 1400 too
  5. 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.

  6. ...you're back?! Welcome back, friend! @CraBeatOff would be fantastic to get you caught back up on the game
  7. WARNING THIS DISCUSSION WILL CONTAIN SPOILERS. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED. THE OP ONLY WILL BE CLEAR OF ANY SPOILERS. I will not include further post with any spoiler tags. You have been warned, and its now completely your call to continue reading. And now, my fellow Sith and Jedi: Discuss!
  8. Agreed, thus the ? mark. Was half listening then as I was speaking with my boss
  9. CES is live, AMD apparently the big first They're now integrating Vega GPUs with Zen CPUs for some Ryzen 5 and 3 CPUs, meaning integrated GFX. Exciting for workstations, especially when Im going to build my wife a new desktop workstation. Per AMD, they're hoping for a 50% increase in clock speeds with the Zen+ refresh? Zen 2 is scheduled for a 7nm structure, sweet.

      Here's how similar interactions go in my field of work:

      Me: Could you give me some details as to what may have happen or what you observed?

      Them: It broke.

      Me: Well, yes, but was the device doing anything out of the ordinary when it went down?

      Them: It broke.

      Ah, yes, these strange stupid animals called humans...

       

      90% of the calls I receive from people at current work are "XY is not working." and then awkward silence ensues ass those tards wonder why the fuck I don't know who they are as if we didn't have 1.2 million residential and thousands of other clients and why it wasn't fixed right after they started the call...

       

      I fucking hate people...

  11. I thought I read that he had just purchased those stocks recently at employee pricing, and then nearly promptly re-sold them at public value
  12. Fantastic... who knew that getting to -20F would mean your car wouldnt start in the morning? Dammit, Id even started and ran my car every day this weekend

      When I first lived in Minnesota I would find it funny that a lot of cars had a electrical plug hanging out of the hood(pre electric car era) and I found out there was a tendency for the gasoline to freeze in the fuel line or it was too cold to reliably start the motor, so those things were used to warm up the crucial parts of the engine so it could get started.... crazy.

      - 3 C here in NYC, was - 12 C yesterday. Almost couldnt start up my car.

      it was as low as -40F in quite a few parts of Canada following boxing day

  13. Please up your budget then and get at minimum 3000hz RAM. Do not get anything less for Ryzen
  14. That made me hard
  15. Unless you're in love with the case, you can drop down to a mid tower for your components. You wont need anything crazy. Id take those savings there, and throw another 30 at the RAM and get 3000hz https://pcpartpicker.com/list/gGWfKZ
  16. which makes me sad... Fuck AMD GPUs, too late to the party and didnt bring the fucking promised keg
  17. Im hoping/expecting a 10% increase in clock speeds for Ryzen 2, which would mean an OC to 4.4GHz which, if they keep in their current price range, fucking baller
  18. Its an Super Pershing without spaced armor but a lot more raw thickness with a bit more mobility and a much stronger gun
  19. @Ragutis yes it is. The 50B is still exceptionally competitive, though it has seen its roll diminish with the 5A and the Super Conq in terms of CW. The -10 depression, 1600 burst, and good handling give it good flexibility in most all situations when it comes to pubs. As far as comparison in competitive, the AMX M4 54, will not see CW use. The 130mm is not good for CW (max 280 pen), and the Super Conq is GOD if you want a 120mm high DPM gun with exceptional upper hull and turret armor.
  20. Its fucking worth the tier 9. Its pure love for a carry hard fun as hell tank.
  21. 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
  22. Hey, you got those now!
  23. God knows I am loving and in love with AMD CPU's right now ( Here is Why and 4 of the last 5 PC's Ive built are all AMD CPUs) but I do think you should look into intel CPU's for your case. First, SolidWorks is more clock speed dependent. And, given that TR is still pretty new technology, I doubt your software would handle all 16 cores very well and 6 with the 8700k at 5GHz would be amazing. Or if you insist, get the i9 with the 10 Cores and fast clock speeds. TR, you're not going to go much beyond 4GHz without some serious lottery. Also, since you're doing Machine Learning your GPU should really go the Quadro route (see 2nd link).
  24. Skill uses the 127mm as well
  25. If you're going to render 4k videos, a lot of Adobe Premier, 3d Modeling then sure 1950x kinda makes sense. And, then Id get 32GB RAM and not 16. I also wouldnt do a water loop yet, that seriously cuts into your budget for no good gain. For a well rounded top performer for gaming and video, I'd get this: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/xhmYyf Water cooling would come later. Get the top parts, then get the water. I think you'd regret going straight for a custom loop right off the bat with what you could leave on the table.
