    60TP Lewandowsasdffsffdggsdf appreciation thread

    Idk... I mean, whats not to like about having .33 acc, -8 depression, 15 second flat reload(3k dpm), 98mm pen with HE, and workable turret and upper front plate armor? This tank is everything I wanted it to be. Its the perfect pub tank if you're looking to play a bastard child of a WZ5A+E100. Smacks hard thats for damn sure. Im no where near @Kolni's level, but playing 40 battles w/ 65% WR and 3257 DPG plus another 20 or so CW/SH battles its just comfortable for people who like that role. Its good enough for #4 by DPG in VBAddict (Cause like, that totally matters!). Setup: Vstab, Enhanced Rammer, Vents Consumables: Large Med, Large Rep, Food, FireFighting bond crew skill (Will mean you burn for about 200 damage) Crew Skills ATM: BIA, Reps, 6th, and Gun Handling/Firefighting where applicable. Next will be View Range and FF again. What I dont like: View Range (My crew is at 2.7 skills, so no vision skills yet) is about... 430? So, not enough. Ammo Count: The final accuracy means you're taking more shots than you should TBH, and Ive gotten down to 3-5 rounds remaining a couple times. HEAT Pen: Its "only" 317, but that just introduces a lot more RNG into penetrating a Super HT or TD. Your final accuracy helps, but RNG Overall: 8/10 for Pubs, and 5/10 for CW. I think other tanks like the 5A and 277 are simply stronger all round, and the Super Conq is a certain staple. I think this slots comfortably behind them when it comes to Pubs for a HT. For CW, its been fun to pair with a Super Conq given the same general speeds of the tank. It could work well against a Type 5 as it'll trade better if you're penning your shots, but again RNG. Worth the grind? Sure. It took me about 1.5 weeks to get from tier 7 to tier 10, and even playing pubs during all of it I never rage quit an evening

    China - meds or lights?

    The only CH MT I found worth was the T-34-1, but that was back when I was watching EJ have the time of his life playing it. LT: 59-16 is fun, but thats it

    Ive been playing the 60TP quite a bit, Id bet it'd sync really well w/ the VK72. I platooned it with a Super Conq already, and it just smashed as a combo deal

    Very much so. And its annoying when that player is also running Vents, food, double reps, and a Tool Box w/ a 100% repair crew. Your entire team stops to shoot it, cause...?

    Elimination: Tier 9 - 2018

    T95 is a casemate TD. See Tort. Its not a good tank. I see one and its "oh hey just go somewhere else and I'll win". I dont worry at it flexing. I dont worry about it at all unless the gun is pointed right at me. Skoda T50 has the burst potential, which is still strong in a corridor meta. Its exceptionally comfortable regardless of map.

Inflexible as hell in all but 1 circumstance AMX 50 120: 8M103: 8 As far as what @Fulcrous stated: Completely correct. The m4 51 is certainly strong, but the instant you come up against someone firing HEAT its one of the worst HTs out there. The 3 best HTs: Conq, T10, WZ all offer better protection vs HEAT with either Spaced Armor or strong sloping in the turret. The M4 51 only works great in 3/5/7, its OK with 5/10 when top tier, and it struggles like HELL when bottom tier. Light tanks are just terrible in this meta. We didnt ask for your favorites (which we all know is the T49. Duh) but what is objectively speaking the best and worst. Upvoting T95 while the Conq, T10, T54, Skoda T50, and WZ still on the list? Favoritism. Upboating T49, or any other TD (T30 aside) or Light tank? Same. In all honesty this list could have listed just the following: T54 Skoda T50 E50 Patton 30lbr Bat AP T10 M4 51 WZ 111-14 Conq T30 cause turret And we shouldn't have even batted an eye (Forgive me if I left a meta T9 out).

    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
  14. Ive take down a couple GPUs, its not hard to do at all. Just use a bit less thermal paste than you would on a CPU and you'll be good to go. I did knock off about 5C when I changed the thermal paste on my 1070 soon after getting it

    T-34/100: All the 'Meh'

    Its not the worst tier 7 MT (T-43 will forever hold that spot in my heart) Gun is a capable damage dealer. It could certainly use a speed buff, and the -5 depression is depressing. 12 battles in (not elite yet) averaging 1669 DPG which isnt bad for a tier 7 med (I expect Carbon to do 2.9k, but I digress). It REALLY needs a good crew. Glad Im training essentially two crews now as I intend to keep the tier 9 and 10. Others thoughts? Again, mine is "Meh. Ive had better, but DAMN Ive had worse"

    My impressions of the Polish line (Wotlabs edition)

    I just finished my power grind of the line T7: Worth playing in pubs, but strictly average. T8: Decent, but holy shit that top gun can REALLY disappoint you with its pen if you're playing in pubs like I did. T9: A finicky bitch. Gun will work one time, but your armor wont. Your armor will then work, but your gun wont. The turret outside of the mantle is auto-pen to HEAT. The top is pretty easily overmatched, and your hatches are easy to hit. It works. It fails. I finished w/ 2459 DPG and 62.5% WR, and that DPG is about 400 less than my most recently ground out tier 9 tanks. Only two games in the 60TP but I like it. The alpha will allow you to trade very effectively

  20. I will update this OP as discussions are made and tanks are added/removed from either the tech tree or gift shop. Each tier (5 through 8 ) will be broken into 4 groups Group 1: BUY BUY BUY! If you see this tank, and can get it, do it Group 2: The Average. These tanks don't stand out, but they also don't fall flat on their face. Worth a buy if you already own something better Group 3: Can be fun? These tanks don't appeal to everyone, but do have redeeming qualities and meme potential. Only buy if you need a very specific trainer Group 4: No. No. No (the Family Guy 'Consuela' Group). The ultimate shit-gift group Notables: WG is releasing a couple new prems over the holidays. I have no idea what they are or how they play, but I should be getting many of the newer premiums gifted by WG to my account to review Many of the tier 5 and 6 premiums, I never owned or I owned them when I was a REALLY bad player Some tanks have only ever been released once, such as Beta Tanks or special events and are left off for that reason (But, if SerB needs $$$ they will release them again... coughcoughMutant6coughcough Tier 8 premiums are a special group, and will be broken down further than the other tiers. Tier 5 Tier 6 Tier 7 Tier 8

    So are none of you people actually playing Polish tanks?

    T7 Polish Tenk: Its fine. Well balanced T8 Polish Tenk: Gun pen is meh. 1491 base EXP not gud enough for Ace T9 Polish Tenk: Not yet elite, had just enough for tracks and gun. Seems solid T10 Polish tenk: Looks like a fun pubber. Could be used in CW as a better trader with the Type 5. Maybe.

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.

    Personally I wish they'd have a capped VR regardless of crew skills/equipment at 445. You still need maximum VR to actually, you know, scout. Just cap the damn things starting at tier 8 at 445, and go from there
