  1. For the record, after over 100 games in this vehicle I'd say it's pretty underestimated. The hull armor would be good for a heavy much less a medium, the turret armor is also quite good, the gun has superior handling in exchange for a trivial decrease of DPM. When utilizing terrain right even the occasional T29 bounce happens because the front armor slope gets amplified to some pretty high numbers, 200ish turf. It's slow for a medium or fast for a heavy however you want to look at it. Essentially it's a medium tank that trades off some mobility for armor that would be on the high end for a heavy. When top tier it's straight up unfair, and when bottom tier the combination of hull down and view range still allows you to spot, harass, and influence the game. The tank doesn't stand out because it's not idiot friendly, so average players can't do much with it. It has "front goes front" armor and low pen which means you have to be able to walk and chew gum without drowning in your own drool, leaving the average pubbie an easy kill while driving it. I don't think I've ever seen an average player use it well.
  2. I kind of want to see a data sample for a CarbonWard-level player on a sheriff account playing the Luchs for 100 games. I want to see how high a single solo win rate can actually go now exploiting every design error in existence now that tanks has reached maximum imbalanced shit.

      Not Carbonward but played 100 Luchs games recently to improve my old stats averaging 800dpg on 74% solo, increased W/R on the tank from 44% to 60% and dpg from 95% percentile to 99.9%

      What's up with the Luchs exactly? Lost touch with low tiers. Also which gun?

      It's just absurdly overpowered now, I think even the most a tank has ever been. Ever since they broke it I've been soloing about 77% in it for about 250 games which is completely absurd, especially when you consider it needs virtually no gold ammo with the 3 cm gun. They seem to have zero plans to change it either, it's not even on their radar they're so clueless. I want to see some one make a post on the main forum about how the game is so broken they soloed 80%+ or something. It's a blatant example of how much WG has neglected the game.

    Buffed Preferential MM Premium 8s

    Played more games in the Jag 8.8. I want to fucking throw up. Every other game is just tracking a Type 9999999 over and over and drowning in a sea of impotence. ALL it needed was APCR pen, they gave it everything BUT APCR pen. I swear to god this is a prank show and WG has a hidden camera in my room.

    O-I: Derp 2.0 - The Derpening

    The OI is essentially the ultimate manifestation of WG's new design goals. Stupidly strong traits and ludicrously poor weaknesses to the point of being impossible to defeat in situation A and useless in situation B with the influence of player skill minimized. The armor is the gimmick that renders some enemies useless against it while the terrible mobility and massive size are what keeps it from being competitive. Grind it and get rid of it.
  5. Welcome to WoT where the optimal strategy is literally "don't play".
  6. The best part is spamming HE like that is tactically useless because you would have to load up on so much HE you wouldn't have enough ammo to play like a non-mouth breather. Which is WoT design philosophy in a nutshell: break it down to as close to paper, rock, scissors as possible.

    Supertest, PMM tank armor buffs

    My impressions... Super Pershing should be awfully good now, but it just doesn't feel much different. Or fun to play. Adding an invinco-strip of spaced armor over half the cupola was a nice troll move though, that should get some angry main forum posts. Jag 8.8 plays the same geriatric, impotent way. Still too slow to do anything but sit in one spot the entire game, still too little pen to do anything other than permatrack some heavies. Not even joking, I pinned a tier 9 Japanese Heavy in the open for like 2 minutes straight because my pubbie retards couldn't figure out how to take advantage of it. A few more years of buffs and it will turn 180 degrees a second and have 235 AP pen. WZ-111: Still boring and lame with inadequate pen. IS-6: Still boring and lame with inadequate pen. And Jesus, I got that shitty new map where the hills hit 35 degree angles in places, it was torture. 10 kph half the game and nearly lost to cap. All the others: not even touching them. All still look boring, lame, and/or bad other than the Type 59 and I don't have one. Overall the changes are probably pretty good but who cares because they still aren't enjoyable to play because of the game itself.

    Any thoughts on the t92 light tank- Premium tier 8?

    It was really nice of WG to do a rental on this thing so I could verify how pissed I would have been if I had bought one.

    Jesus, half of these tanks are going to be monsters now. Faster Super Pershing with good bloom numbers, good grief, try hitting that cupola now. AND buffed frontal armor? Type 59 is now better than a tech tree tank yet gets sheltered MM. Jag 8,8 will still blow at least, all the buffs in the world won't make 236 APCR pen an E-75. Will finally be a nightmare to lower tier tanks though, which completes the WoT circle of life where tier>>>>>>>everything.

    ELC AMX and the Patch 9.18 (It's still a good tank)

    Tank is fucking trash now. I permaretired it after losing a hard carry game when a bot level shitter in a Stug simply chased me for an eternity clicking and eventually killed me because the ELC is now too slow to outrun an average tank. The part where I completely missed the game winning kill shot on him at 200m with the 90mm because hurr durr 0.23 turret bloom didn't help either. I always hated these roaches but leave it to WG to nerf it so hard I actually feel sorry for it.

    T-50-2 Returns

    Leave it to WG to somehow manage to make everything blander in the name of balance. Meanwhile, 200+ games 78% solo win rate in the current Luchs without ever shooting gold. But hey, at least the T-50 isn't too fast.

    T-64 MBT=New Premium Light Tank? (Object 432)

    Don't worry, I'm sure by the time it makes it through the balancing department sausage grinder it will be unplayable trash like every other high tier light tank.
  13. Playing the T7 combat car just watched a third of my clip disappear as ghost shells. Amazing work as always, WG.

      why are you even playing that?

    Rating the Premium Tanks (Tiers 5 through 8)

    It was trash once. Then they buffed gun depression and side armor and it was solid. Then they buffed mobility, upper plate, and gun depression again because $$PREMIUMTANKSBRAH$$. And now it's back to unplayable because who the fuck wants to fight +2 tier tanks all day every day even with a good tier 8.
  15. Uh, speed is a big part of it. ELCs aren't squat anymore since they nerfed the horsepower while the Pz I C is still a nightmare to hit despite being average sized for its tier. These things will be garbage to play yet annoying as hell to deal with on open maps.
