      Sadly I am currently away from my favourite game and will be for the span of the next 36 hours. Bleedin' shame. And I never knew what a torturous affair life was until I lost the daily lubricant of World of Tanks: Kolni's avatar gets more relevant every passing day.

    Tank win rate over player win rate aggregated by each patch?

    Buffed Preferential MM Premium 8s

    What WG needs to do is a full rebalancing of every single tank in every single tier. This means instead of powercreeping their way to "balance" they should start nerfing things back in line to preserve a healthy power difference across tiers. As it stands there are less tanks that need buffs than there are that needs to be nerfed back to sane levels. Obviously nobody likes the idea of nerfs to their favorite time waster, but nerfs are exactly what is needed.

    Something something prems should never be better than their tech tree contemporaries...

    SEA CW is ded

    Pre-alpha is a good spot to go back to, you know, to properly remove all the broken shit the game has. After you redesign the game you can have your proper testing phases again.

    That pic was from 2011 NA, 7 years ago before all these seasons campaigns alliances crap. The fact that we're seeing the same thing again on SEA no less just makes it even more laughable.

    Tiger 2 - the harder and slower Tiger 1

    They were placed there when the only T10 tanks were Maus, T30 and IS-7; when the Panthers only had to compete with the T-43/T-44/T20/Pershing, Tigers against IS/IS-3/T29/T32; when gold rounds were rare because they costed actual gold; way before the pen and alpha creep. I probably missed a few tanks here and there, but you get the gist. Just imagine KT having workable armor because you didn't have high pen rounds being flung at you willy nilly, the only big things you have to worry about is hiding your lower front and angling. Your gun had enough pen to deal with almost anything you face frontally and actually followed the "German sniper" stereotype. Time has not treated the KT well, it wasn't bad back then but was still manageable, but now it's just flat out bad compared to everything else.

      cba to play even remotely close to the amount of games needed to mark it, even less try and manipulate the values

      Can't you first tank your stats, then hold yourself back and play only progressively better each time? Going from 400 DPG to 800 is a 100% increase. :doge:

    Elimination: Tier 9 - 2018

    They can honestly just give it 300 pen heat and it will be fine again, plus it will fit the line perfectly since the T69 and T57 both uses AP/HEAT. Makes me wonder though, just how bad is the T69 these days? 250 pen HEAT isn't much, but it's still workable at T8.

    re: Arty Focus in Hulldown Tanks

    In a nutshell, make it hard enough for anything to shoot at you, they will eventually stop trying to shoot at you. Like moving a lot to make aiming difficult, staying unlit as long as often as possible, or just pushing harder to kill whatever is spotting you.

    Elimination: Tier 9 - 2018

    Sidescraping is immune to pen creep, and 490 alpha will always be relevant.

    SU-130PM Soviet Tank Destroyer

    Wonder how long until WG implement partial damage for non-penetrating AP/APCR/HEAT ammo.

    SU-130PM Soviet Tank Destroyer

    First came the alpha creep, turning 390 alpha at T8 from exception to norm. Then came the armor creep, because they realized the high-alpha-sudden-death gameplay isn't fun. Then came the pen creep, because not penning what you're shooting at is even less fun. Then came more armor and HP creep, to compensate for the high pen. Then came another round of alpha and pen creep, in the form of Jap landcancers and T8 TDs. Then came even more armor and HP creep, because alpha got too high. Now you have 520 alpha with this thing, setting the stage for 500+ alpha at T8 becoming the norm. All is well in WG's balancing cycle.

    SU-130PM Soviet Tank Destroyer

    You forgot the 520 alpha at T8. Squishy or not even a windowlicker will do somewhat well in it simply because of that, and unlike the ISU it has a turret.

    What's keeping this forum solvent?

    I thought the servers cost ~$300/mo? The ads must make a fucking fortune.

    What's keeping this forum solvent?

    Never pays for it. Patreon helps a bit. Ads kinda help with pennies. It was never meant to be a profitable project I think.
  21. Reminder that there used to exist tank company battles, and you can use that to grind up your tier 8s.

    T-50-2 Returns

    Either KV-1S or KV-3. KV-3 had better staying power because of its armor, especially since back then prem rounds cost actual gold.

    T-50-2 Returns

    390 alpha, 175/219 pen, in a heavy with very workable armor and high HP pool, at tier 6, was more than a "little" OP.
