  1. Object 268 version WTF were they thinking?

    Well the way to win games is find one of these on your team and follow him. 2 games in a row in my last session the 268-4 ate pushed right up a corridor and ended the game undamaged.
  2. R9 270x dead??

    If it's toast, the first thing I'd do is try the 'oven trick' (google it). I've resurrected 2 cards using it.
  3. r9 270x to 1050 ti

    If the GPU is artifacting or does odd things, google the 'oven trick'. I've resurrected a few cards using it but if you do it: 1) make sure you understand the directions (are the in degrees C or in F?) 2) set the TIMER so you dont leave it in too long What this does is melt and reflow the solder on the card, fixing any micro cracks in the connections Oven Trick
  4. Batchat 25t Ap, Tier 9 Baby Batchat

    4 months? Ouch. Mine was just a 10 day stay of which 3 were in ICU. Cured me of motorcycles.. almost cured me of life entirely. Play safely, my friends..

    The ultimate glass autoloader. If anything hits you, you lose modules AND crew, every time. So it teaches a lot of hard lessons about positioning and how to time your attack and possibly make it out. Definitely not a keeper. Sold the instant the almighty Batchat 25t was in the garage.
  6. If you haven't tried it, the female voices mod is wonderful. 2 lines of code, it changes the default voices to all female ones. Exact mod is 'mod_ElkAllFemale'
  7. XM551 Sheridan - Tubby Leopard

    It has its place; try the wall with the slot in Siegfried Line to not only snipe the field in a medium-like way but also spot everything there without even trying. It seems to accrue lots of assisted when you are trying for damage. Lately I have been using its speed to drive around all over the place, take sneaky shots at stuff - especially their lights - and light up stuff in passing. It might be big and not have the best camo, but its very fast and has the best view range. Even without vents I'm getting 503 with food.
  8. XM551 Sheridan - Tubby Leopard

    I was wrong about vstab. I took vents off and put it back on, and now I'm getting better results both on Sheridan and Fatton. One has to wonder how good aimtime has to be before vstab isnt worth it, as we are sub 2 second on both those and even though the difference is hardly noticeable the results seem to be positive.
  9. XM551 Sheridan - Tubby Leopard

    The weakness is the camo, the strengths are the VR and gun handling. If you want to make the gun handling one iota better than it already is, use VStab. If you want to mitigate the camo, use vents and gain even more VR at same time (11m). My 'does it need Vstab' test is to snap aim at something and figure whether you could even settle and fire before the circle is minimized.If the circle beats you, you dont need Vstab.
  10. But....I always thought the official forums were for serial posters with nothing to say....?
  11. Interesting. I've seen my winrate do same; I got to the magic '54%' overall, then along comes 9.20 and it goes into reverse - hard. Now, every night I'm struggling to attain high 40's WR. No matter what I play, even when I should have carried, I rarely do anymore. I just cant figure it out in terms of 'what changed'. The only clue I have is that in early days of the new MM (9.18) I was cleaning up in tier 7 with the T71 and in tier 9 with the Lwt, but now the MM is far less kind - my T71 is hardly ever top tier now, whereas back in 9.18 is was almost all the time(!).
  12. Please bear in mind that if you update the values every day, all the other sites out there using your values will be constantly updating, as not all do it automatically. Just because you have the server power to update every day doesnt mean thats a good use of your resources - the values of any tank shouldn't change by a noticeable amount in a day.... It would be far better to update every month, and do the averages every 6. More frequent changes than that will be a pain for all the sites and modders to keep up with.
  13. Leo PTA. Diamond in the rough appreciation thread.

    Are we playing the same tank? I have a BIA crew and I'm getting sub-2 sec aim time and a dispersion of 0.3 - none better at tier 9. If you can't hit stuff at 300m with this tank, you don't have any better options. But - it has to be said that this tank is the medium of choice for those who normally play lights. It is not the medium of choice for those who play heavies (T-54, 430, etc).
  14. Leo PTA. Diamond in the rough appreciation thread.

    Its only a POS if you try to brawl with it. Put 300m between you and the other guys and its very good indeed. Of course, discussion is about the elite tank...dont play it when not elite, especially not without the L7 gun
  15. FV4202(P) post "buff" thoughts?

    Its still bad. Amazing they can release crap like this and creep it up ever so slowly (and too slowly) then in same timeframe drop Defenders, Scorpions, and other ridiculously OP prems into the game.
