  1. @RollerCoaster47 You really don't mince words, do you?
  2. OP please all you have to do is post the link for the embed RIP though, I remember when I was a noob back in 2013 and found jingle's channel, I loved all of his old videos where he played the ISU 152 like an idiot but laughed manically when he one-shotted tier 6s. I haven't watched much of his content for the past 2-3 years, but I appreciate his contributions to the community, his general positivity, and his passion for his channel. I have no idea what kind of PR disaster is going on, this seems like some kind of KGB tactic to use the "SJW" trend to moderate negative content that goes against WG's policies and economic interests (as I have no doubt that WG doesn't give a rat's ass about the internet culture war). Whatever's going on, this announcement is HORRIBLE news for WG. I don't even know how you can recover from your #1 content creator jumping ship. Maybe Jingles will get a nice letter and check from Victor Kislyi and a Belarussian mail-order bride to bring him back into their fold? But this seems like a pretty definitive decision. I only wish I could see what is going on in WG internal emails and video conference calls right now... This is absolute mayhem and I have more than enough to enjoy the storm
  3. There's no reason to feel guilty for enjoying the game. It's still fundamentally a very entertaining game. Although if you think the average player doesn't complain, just check out the official forums (at your own risk)
  4. If you've been getting good matchmaking in your tier 8s post 9.18, you must be incredibly lucky. Everyone I've heard from, whether it be friends, clanmates, people on wotlabs, or the incessant whining threads on the official forum, have been talking about how screwed tier 8 has been by this patch.
  5. That's really interesting then, especially with WG confirming it is an issue.

    I wrote a nice little endorsement on the official forums that I might as well post here, too. I've thoroughly enjoyed my time in YOUJO so far. The players in general are friendly, and I can find a platoon with clan-mates at almost any hour. We play pretty well competitively. We don't always win, but when we lose, people, whether the caller or the players, accept responsibility and are willing to try to learn from those mistakes. For me, it's a perfect balance of competitive and laid back. In my experience, the officer core have been nothing but accessible and transparent, both on TS and in private messages in game or on Discord. The only time I ever had an issue, I shot Tama a DM on Discord, and we resolved it quickly. There's only drama in this clan if you go out of your way to look for it.
  7. I re-titled the thread in light of the discussion here What tiers were you playing on what server at what time? If it doesn't work let's put the nails in the coffin now. The discussions about twitch streamers seems to indicate that this is valid. I am familiar with confirmation bias, and I do not think this is the case. I picked up the Lowe this patch from the trade in, and I have almost 100 games already. I have never, ever gotten matchmaking as good as when I was doing this. I got more top tier 3/5/7 games last night, at two different times (late afternoon and ~11 central) than I did the entire time I've had the tank.
  8. Some of you might have seen my status that I got five top tier games in a row in my Lowe earlier, something that seems nearly impossible and unbelievable this patch. Well, it turns out there is might be a bug that I was unknowingly experiencing. I had invited a friend to platoon, but he never joined. I was in the platoon by myself hitting battle. Apparently, doing this gives you much higher priority for being top tier. Why? I have no idea, but I played more tonight and it seems to significantly improve your chance of getting top tier. I only was playing my Lowe at tier 8 (because I'm in love with it, obviously). I'm not sure how other tiers will work out, or how server population affects it. It's already on reddit and will probably be fixed eventually. edit: changed the title to be more accurate update: seems like this has hit off throughout wot media. The daily bounce wrote an article on it, and this dez guy also made a video now taken down. Both sources seem to validate the bug update 2: Anton ‘Evilly’ Pankov confirmed Wargaming already has a fix and should be implemented very soon. EU community managers have confirmed that exploiting any bugs is against the game rules. (still on the daily bounce article)
  9. My neural network seems to be activating...
  10. Someone posing as me must have performed some sexual favors at WG HQ in Minsk because I just got 5 top tier 3/5/7 battles in a row in my Lowe. Today I was truly blessed. Praise be to serb!

      Yes, I feel that if I make many posts that sound like I actually know what I'm talking about it will somehow translate into in-game skill and I can finally reach the 70% recent win-rate I rightfully deserve.

  14. Which tank is better for tier 8 strongholds in the current meta? The Lowe or the Patriot?

      Patriot is best medium in tier 8

      I have a complex about spending money on this game, so I angst over decisions like this. I could pick up a lowe now for 8.6k gold and a useless (but free) VK4503, or wait until the patriot goes on sale and hold onto the 10k gold I have (all "free") for premium time and other miscellaneous uses. I've played both tanks on the live server, and I actually think I like the Lowe better. The Patriot's hull is not THAT good, and the mobility and gun handling compare unfavorably to the T25 Pilot which I've been playing a lot recently. Whereas the Lowe is an absolute monster with its armor and laser gun. However the DPM is lacking compared to the Patriot, which could matter in SH battles, and while I wouldn't call the Patriot fast, it's certainly speedier than the Lowe.

      The Lowe is 10/10, but I honestly doubt we'll see the patriot on sale again. That thing is pretty bullshit.
