  1. So my ancient lycos email is finally shutting down next month, which is what I had used for gaming accounts for years. This absurd nonsense is what WG expects you to do in order to change the email of a 7 year old account.

      I would not worry about it.  My kid plays on an account linked to an email address of a company that has not been in business for years.  WG never needs to receive emails if you don't mind not getting anything from them.

      Yeah, you're probably right, other than emails to meathead videos it's not like I get anything from WoT anyway. I just won't be able to change my password again is all.

      Passwords are so 2007, Putin can change it for you if you want

  2. Patch 1.0 - HD Maps and other things

    They've yet again gone through the maps and removed position after position after position. Bushes are cleared out to the point where if you do take a shot from something you can't see just shoot the one fucking bush and you'll hit the shooter. More terrain ground out to make it impossible to operate unless you're the top tier tomato fuck in your heavy tank. They specifically are trying to make it harder and harder to do anything but roll your face on your keyboard. Amazing.
  3. If it truly is JUST base XP only (so no premium bonus, no X2 daily, no boosters) then it's fucking ridiculous. Even for a good player base XP per game is maybe 800 turf, that's 390 or so games in 14 days, or 28 games a day every day, no shortcuts. For the vegetables it'd be more like 45 games per day for 14 days. Maybe playing a particularly good tank will squeeze a little more out, but the quantity of sheer tryhard going on will probably tamp that back down. But then these have long slid toward more of an optional discount mode. If it's base I'll do something remotely useful with my existence instead, as much as the thought pains me.
  4. tfw you're doing a report for school and eventually it starts to sink in and you're just like... wait, what?

  5. My World of Tanks Razer mouse finally died last night and I was like... yeah, I get it.

    People be like, "more TD bush wanking maps" and I'm like,
  7. Patch 1.0 - HD Maps and other things

    Gotta give them credit, couldn't have imagined how Fjords could have been made worse, but they pulled it off. The center zone is even more of a no man's land, the perch in the center is virtually useless due to being devoid of cover and concealment, and thanks to the lowering of the center mountain arty can fuck over half the map now.
  8. I have rarely seen a more prolific font of straight up fucking stupid ideas as WG.

      You're salty about the April Fools event? Did you throw a fit over 8-bit tanks too?

  9. Patch 1.0 - HD Maps and other things

    Any one else enjoying how easy it is to flip your fucking tank now? It feels like they tweaked traction to where you can drive straight up a wall again, and between that and all the smooth HD rubble and crap everywhere the simple act of moving feels more dangerous than ever.
  10. M7 guidance!

    I do appreciate how the M7 change over succinctly summarized WG's light tank philosophy: take a medium tank, then make it shit. There you go, light tank.
  11. Leave it to WG to take a tank down an entire tier and still manage to make it ultimately worse. Needs to fight more tier 8 Russian heavies though, there are still some occasional games where it isn't completely worthless.
  12. I prefer WG does stuff like this, I need to be reassured occasionally the game is fucked long term so I don't indulge the occasional urge to give them any money.

  14. Post Your Camo Ideas!

    So this new system has allowed access to something I've always wanted: classifying my tanks for sorting. Fortunately the quantity and selection of emblems handed out like candy for years has given me a lot to work with to vaguely match the concepts I want markings for to allow easy recognition at a glance. Mastery badges now represent straight up overpowered tanks. Clovers represent tanks that have shown a tendency to win games despite all logic saying they shouldn't. Ghost emblems represent cursed tanks that lose games over and over for inexplicable reasons. "Play at your own peril." The rook represents tanks in the active process of grinding to the next tier. Warning triangles are for premium tanks that are kinda crappy, but become playable as long as a strong (3+ skill) crew is used. "Do not play this with a weak crew." And finally, there are Meathead-Certified Shit Tanks, as an ever present reminder you paid actual, genuine, United States dollars for this unplayable garbage, which shall remain empty and alone in your garage to hide your shame from the world. Meathead's gaping maw looking you straight in the eye and laughing at you. Looking straight into your soul, and laughing at you. LAUGHING.
  15. Tiger (P), how do I love thee? Let me count the ways...

    You guys have been missing an important detail, which is the cripplingly shit gun depression in additional to all the other standout qualities of trash armor, glacial speed, and pathetic firepower. I'm concerned it still has 380 view range though, it breaks the entire theme of being absolutely worthlessly terrible in every single way possible.
