  1. Stupid Question.  If I research the Conway, but don't purchase it.  Will the L1A1 gun be available for the Tort?  Or do I have to actually buy the Conway.

    1. DHP


      You need to buy it. 

    2. leggasiini


      Ehh, you don't have to buy it.

      Research Conway = 120 L1A1 automatically researched = available on Tortoise.

      I remember back when people said that "only purpose of the 113 is that you can research it to get the 122 for free on WZ-120".

  2. 33 fucking games to get my 5 kills, I'm a scrub

    1. cavman276


      took me 2, m4 derp ftw

    2. Fulcrous


      lower tiers make it absurdly easy.

  3. Day 19 T34B Mission FUCK UP - Wins required.

    I really shouldn't be surprised that WG managed to seriously fuck up another mission, but it is rather frustrating.

    So do I say fuck it and quit?  Do I complete the hellish mission for a free tank i'll probably play once?  Do I complete 30 games in the top 10 and hope WG fixes the mission?

      I see. Silly WGNA. 

    3. lordawesome7


      the last one is get 5 kills in one game so if its only one token then i think the latter is better

    4. NightmareMk9


      I still need 2, so F me

  4. So if you complete all the STUG 4 missions with honors you get free 3% camo for all your German tanks?  Am I reading this correctly?  Then repeat for USA and RU.  This seems WAY to generous for WGNA

    Added new rewards: Camouflage patterns:

    1. A set of three Camouflage patterns for the reward vehicle is earned for completion of all 75 missions
    2. The same set of Camouflage patterns becomes available for any vehicle of the nation the reward vehicle belongs to, once all 75 missions are completed with honors
    3. A set of three unique Camouflage patterns (summer, winter, and desert) can be earned for completion of each operation:

      Damn, germany gets two camo sets then.

    3. NightmareMk9


      My friend says you still have to buy it on each tank.  The missions only "unlock" the ability to buy it.

    4. sohojacques


      Yeah that’s  my understanding of how it works

  5. Is there any reason to keep the WZ120?  I F-ing hate the gun depression, I'v probably been killed a dozen times because there is an enemy on nearly level ground just right under where my gun can aim.  I have about 4 other Tier 9 Medium Tanks if I need one.

      Huh, I could never get the 120 to work at all for me(not that I'm at all decent in the 121) but it is less frustrating when I do play it. I couldn't quote you were I read it(probably somewhere here on wotlabs) people were saying they liked the 120 over the 121.

    3. MagicalFlyingFox


      Back before the 121 got buffed a few times, the WZ-120 was the better tank tier for tier.


      I just enjoy derpy-ish guns so I'm keeping my WZ-120 over the 121. The 121 is much more reliable and is more like a 62A with more alpha while the WZ-120 is a much improved T-34-3. 


      in regards to keeping it, there's no point in keeping what you don't enjoy

    4. Fulcrous


      a lot of it is about abusing terrain to artificially create depression. if not, being where you cant get cucked

  6. WG changed the end date on yet another Event.  WOWS they ended the Anniversary Event 1 day early.

    FU WG

    wows anniversary collection lie.jpg

  7. Update 9.20 tonight, get the Foch155 now bitches.

      I still need 50k to the 62a


    3. monjardin


      At least the T-55A isn't getting outclassed by the T-54 changes. There's the armor vs gun handling/DPM trade off.

    4. Assassin7


      Wait! The T55a isnt being changed?



      Now all I need is a 6 skill german medium crew...

  8. Does anyone know if we can pull the Emblem/Inscription 'trick' with the FOCH update?

    1. Fulcrous


      They are literally being reapplied and not refunded so I believe no.

  9. I really wish WG would post the Weekend Specials before Friday.

      They've been posting them on Thursday for most of this year.

    4. DHP


      it really depends if you are EU or NA. On EU we usually get it late friday, sometimes even saturday.

  10. LT-15 for the T-55 FUCK YEAH!!!!!  After probably 1.5 years I can move on to the Obj260

    1. HemanathanRX7


      i got bad news for you, lt7 for 260 is harder than lt15 :P Gotta work for the mission reworks coming up lol.

  11. 2x%20xp_zpswjfvoqsm.jpg2x XP every game all weekend Tier 8-10.  In case you missed it


  12. The Butthurt over the Pilot Tokens is real.  As usual WG did a shit job explaining that you had to buy all the tokens you needed the same night the missions ended.  LOLz

    1. CheekiBreeki_


      wait what lmfao

    2. NightmareMk9


      People are crying because they missed out on the Pilot Tank.  Basically if you didn't buy/earn all the 13 tokens by the end of the last day you are SOL.  I don't recall how they handled the last couple missions like this (The 250K per Nation for the IS6 and WZ111), did they give you any extra time to buy the tokens after the mission officially ended?

  13. Win 1 Game WOWP, get a day of Premium.

    Hmm, is that worth the DL/Install?

    2. Assassin7


      For one day? Nah

    3. DirtyACE7


      They need to dangle a bigger carrot to entice going through the hassle of it. If it's a 7 days of premium time, then I'd say yes.

    4. NightmareMk9


      I'm cheap, do I did it.  1 game @ tier 1 (since everything is reset).  I got 3 kills and an assist in my first game in over a year.  

  14. WOT NA is all in Spanish, LOLz

    1. Luna


      Don't u mean BR? :doge:

    2. NightmareMk9


      I don't speak any of the Spanish Languages, so it's all Greek to me.

      WG fixed it by the next time I checked

      3% on Netflix was pretty cool.  I tried to turn on the "English" language, but it was terrible, so I went back to captions

    3. hallo1994


      Trump was right. They're taking our jobs.

  15. Which Equipment IS7?  The reviews and guilds are all ancient.  Ram, Vstab and Vent or GLD?

      Vents, you desperately need that extra DPM. If the difference a GLD makes is improving things for you, then you're playing the IS-7 wrong to begin with.

    3. NightmareMk9


      Thanks for the replies, I picked up a set of equipment 1/2 off this weekend.  Now I just need another $3M credits :)

    Nope this idiot makes TanTan look Unicum.


    But on that subject, TanTan should have been banned a year ago for SPAM.  How can you type that same crap every game for thousands of games and not get enough reports for some action

      Sometimes I'm tempted to make an alt account and just test and document how many games I can ruin without being sanctioned. I suspect it's a fucking lot.

      Oh this is a forum strike lmao, who cares then wot forums is cancer now since we can't insult baddies openly now

  17. FINALLY!!!!!!!  54.00% overall

    Shitters and the shitty MM finally defeated


    1. Sergeant_Fgt


      gz, 11% to go :doge: 

    2. MacusFlash


      Prepare for 22% WR next week :serb:

    3. NightmareMk9
  18. Ahhh!  A week later and I'm still 53.99 thanks to 7 losses in a row and a 22% night.

    I did the math and I need just 5 wins in a row


  19. Google Doc Tracking the On-Track Events.  I found this looking for a list of the events.  Thought others might want to check it out.

  20. Holy Hell, the Fuking Pubbies.  Platooned with a 1800 WN8 friend last night and can't buy a decent team.  We lost a 65% chance to win

      I don't have the % on mine, he has it on his for some reason.

    3. kreigermann


      Randoms have been absolute chaos(more than usual) huge influx of summer newbies have been making it unusually rough. The number of bought/traded accounts are unusually high too. 

      Last night, I was on Himmilsdorf pushing the banana road with another blue in my AT7, he was in T34(not a bad combo to cover each other).. only the blue(2k+ overall) completely derped out.. and I mean.. what the fuck level of fail usually seen in blood red play.(wouldn't shoot a one-shot T37 flanking me right in front of him, no he wasn't on reload, he literally had nothing else to shoot) So, I looked up his stats and was what I would expect from a bought account. Dude was a yellow recent, the stat graphs were a sharp cliff(not the shape you would expect from 'oh man I had a bad session or two' but a total loss of game knowledge).

      % chance is really unreliable to begin with, even with the best circumstance(you never know who is on tilt) but damn... how many of those "good players" weighting the % chance gave or sold their account to a turd?

      I learned my lesson not to put too much trust in overall stats displayed in XVM.


    4. Android25


      Strange, I played solo last night and won 12 games in a row at tier 10. Had a 70 some percent WR after 20 games.

  21. This is the week, I can feel it!

    53.99% Overall


  22. Did anyone else just get a week of Premium Time?  I just notice I have 6 days for some unknown reason...

  23. Does anyone know the XP to unlock the Grille15 in 9.15?  Is it the same/more/less than the WTE100?


    1. SchnitzelTruck


      I'd assume the same as the waffle.

    2. no_name_cro


      I think it should be the same to stop the cries of pubbies.

  24. It was a rough night last night


    1. avandelay


      At least the 'toons on your team carried their weight. Impressive display.
