  1. This thing is utter fucking trash. It's an AT 15 with real pen but even less armor for tier. NOTHING should move this slow anymore with WoT's current dumbed-down, ADHD 360noscope gameplay. It's like it was designed for an entirely different game... like the one WOT was 4 years ago.
  2. Would be so crazy to back 4 years when you could solo 70%+ in a T67. Nowadays you can barely pull off 70%+ solo in it from all the work done balancing the game.
  3. Epilogue: I saw Logitech just released a clone version of their c922 a couple weeks ago. https://www.amazon.com/Logitech-Stream-Streaming-Recording-960-001211/dp/B07661NX9M/ref=sr_1_9?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1510864680&sr=1-9&keywords=logitech+webcam Several outlets had a discount on it including Amazon and Best Buy, so it was $50. I thought to myself, "so why do you release a copy of an existing product if that product doesn't work with Windows 10?" The answer was, quite possibly, "the hardware will not work with Windows 10 no matter what they do with the software, so they needed to release a new version that does and not talk too much about it because a lot of people now have $80 paper weights and are gonna be pissed when they realize it." So I ordered it from Best But and sure enough, no crashing or disconnecting errors. Image looks quite good right out of the box, auto-adjusts light and color quite well. I was probably too harsh on the generic one, but I'm glad I sent it back. The Logitech's image is still a little better right from the box than the generic's was with all the adjusting I could do. Any one looking for a webcam this thing is the way to go, especially if you've upgraded to Windows 10.
  4. I replaced the CFLs with some "Reveal" bulbs I had tucked away that have a cooler color scheme to try to counter it and moved lamps everywhere, but it wasn't happening. It seemed to help a little, but the bottom line is the camera either makes everything glare massively, or it makes dark objects too dark and gives them that grainy old "VHS" look. After a lot of "trying everything" I feel safe to say the camera just sucks at handling light and also color as a result. The c920 kicks the crap out of it and can produce a decent image just with everything set on auto adjust. I just went ahead and sent it back, I don't think any amount of work would have made it look halfway professional. Amazon needs to save itself some trouble and stop letting Chinese knock off companies sell crap on their site, this thing was the same price as a c920 and had good reviews because reasons?
  5. Got a Logitech c920 planning to make some Youtube videos. Looked good, really liked it. Lucky me, I'm one of the people where Windows 10 won't play nice with it. I tried everything, finally give up and sent it back to Amazon because it crashed my PC and nothing I tried fixed it. Ordered some offbrand thing to replace it because apparently the c920 is so good there's practically no competition to challenge it. This new camera is acceptable to good in every way except color. The Logitech handled color fine, this one is rough. I have a room with yellow walls (believe me, not my idea) and this cam seems to have no color correction, so everything is too damn yellow. I'm pulling my hair out trying to find some way to compensate by room lighting, software, SOMEthing, but with little success. Before I repaint this entire room in a light gray (and I swear to god I'll do it, I'm fucking BATSHIT, man) I don't suppose any one familiar with the subject has a better way to compensate? Maybe a certain type of bulb as opposed to compact florescent bulbs I'm using currently? Or some software solution? I've adjusted the meager offerings the camera allows such as hue and saturation and it helped a little, but it's still painful. I've tried several different video capture software and found nothing that allows adjustment other than what the camera itself can do. Just thought it was worth a shot in case any one has dealt with the same issue before.
  6. I kind of expected a bunch of people to lose their minds when I read those patch notes on the main site a while back. https://worldoftanks.eu/en/news/general-news/920-1-matchmaker-improvements/ By the wording it sounds exactly like WG made platoons less likely to get top tier to prevent better players from dominating games, and very strongly suggested they made other manipulative tweaks to the new MM when they installed it. And then for all the tinfoil hatting that goes in in this game, no one made a peep about it. Which confirms what I've long suspected, which is that WG can manipulate things a little bit as long as it goes over the math-inept heads of their player base.
  7. Patch 9.20.1. notes. Draw your own conclusions.
  8. Oh, joy. *dies*
  9. What could possibly go wrong with an E5 minus the cupola with a better gun and more depression?
  10. Tank is a fucking abortion on treads. 258 gold pen on a slow fixed gun TD, 60 more games of this to finish the grind.
  11. Conqueror, the only tank I've played enough recently to have a "ranking". Seems legit.
  12. All this entire mode fiasco did was give a handful of degenerate twats who only play the same goddamn overpowered tank a 2%-3% bonus to the numbers of their bullshit wagon of choice. Not just the usual WG fuck-up, but that special brand of "SerB seal of quality " where they actually manage to make the game irrevocably slightly worse overall.
  13. Ok, so which one of you is behind this:

    And yes, I could just block, but at this point I kind of want to see how long it will go on.

  14. If I understand correctly from when I logged in, if you already own the tier 8 AND it's being moved to 9 and you get the new 9 without charge. For instance, the WZ I don't think you'd get anything because it's staying at 8 while my AMX 13 90 definitely got me a freebie tier 9. I only had the 13 90 so I'm not certain about all the details. Never heard specifics but I feel pretty confident saying you have to have the tank in your garage to get anything, I don't see why it would give you the tank without owning one already. If it's only researched then you get access to both tanks with one less grind, but that's it. Doing the ballpark math tier 8s cost about 2.4 million and 9s cost about 3.5 million, so buying back an 8 at full price is going to save you 3.5 million (or 2.5 during on track 30% discount) compared to a fresh purchase of the tier 9 later on. I'm not certain what's going on with the lower tier lights, I'm finishing 2 tier 6 light grinds now since there's currently a 30% off sale for tier 6-7 tanks anyway and those two tanks are moving to higher tiers. At worst I get nothing, at best I get some free credits somewhere out of the deal. For extra min-maxing accountant scamming make sure you stick all the weird free flag decals in your garage on all your lights that are changing tiers, they're refunding at full gold value. Whatever doesn't convert to gold you can just toss later. I JUST REALLY LOVE BRASIL, GUYZ
