  1. Newer players often do better in slower tanks because they can't yolo\overextend and the extra time they have to spend travelling will let the battle "take shape" before they get there making it easier to see where they should go.
  2. My vote for the best tier 8 for making silver goes to the Kutuzov - as long as you have a half decent RU captain. Kutuzov brings her own smoke, long range accurate guns and 8km torps. Everything you need to make money. Flamu is also a big fan of the ship and has posted enough videos to show you how to play it and how well it can do.
  3. It's still "out of cockpit" though isn't it? I flew IL2 competitively for so many years that I'm not sure I can go back to the camera behind the plane. If you are serious about planes you need to read Fighter Combat Tactics by Shaw. I paid a fortune for a copy years ago but now it's available as a PDF download. http://ebookbit.com/book?k=Fighter+Combat%3A+Tactics+and+Maneuvering&charset=utf-8&lang=en&isbn=978-0870210594&source=sites.google.com#pdf
  4. I can't see how this can be good for CW even with the lack of VN.
  5. Derpy is the best description. Think Type 5 Heavy. And Bozo was arguing that their best use is sitting at the back sniping (instead of leading the push) because using your armour and HP is all luck.
  6. Rubiconed is now a trope? There's a dude on the offishul boot forums saying that a battleship's job is to sit way at the back and snipe* "and deal devastating damage" because ( I kid you not) "tanking damage is all luck". The stupidity. It burns! *battleships have the equivalent of 0.5 accuracy.
  7. If you have armour you can't have accuracy? Making armour great again!
  8. Have you guys seen Jingle's video on the new HD maps? If you haven't it's definitely worth a look. You won't recognise them!
  9. No conspiracy theories about Friday the 13th?
  10. What have they done this time?
  11. It is flamethrower, but it also has +1 MM and so there's nothing that the AP can't pen. Plus, because it's British short fused AP it rarely over pens cruisers and instead gives them the full loving. So while HE will devastate, AP will simply delete cruisers. I've won countless duels against other Orion's who were firing HE at me by hitting them with AP. The Iron Duke is a different story because it sees tier 7. But for the tier 4 Orion - AP all the way.
  12. Wait. Psycho called the Orion "meh"? Protip - fire nothing but AP and you'll find it's one of the best (if not the best) ships in its tier. Flamu says it's outright OP.
  13. My "worser" was deliberate. I didn't think I could be too subtle for you guys but there you go.
  14. You aren't struggling to get more XP in your top tier battleships than the guy who never made it into the game!
  15. LANCR are playing boots. Possibly even worser than they do tanks.
