  1. What a fucking joke by Quicky. Any selective outrage you may express towards this topic is immediately made irrelevant if you go on to buy the product in any capacity. It also makes it rather obvious why WG would be willing to sell these products - despite people complaining about the practice or the rates, people will still shovel cash at WG to get them, rendering their complaining pointless.
  2. Played some games on my alt today.  Low tier population and tier distribution is actually pretty good.  Possible return to game incoming?

    1. Jesse_the_Scout


      Tier 3s are playable for the first time in years without seeing 5s.

  3. Given that that was the same update that removed Province and completely changed the map pool at all tiers, I would be up for that.
  4. Is the point to laugh at you for using Windows 10?
  5. Just a few excerpts from this new patent by Activision: Also a related video report/rant on the topic which I haven't fully watched yet.
  6. It looks like I'm not included on the list in a lot of places where I feel like I would be if the data extended all the way back to the beginning of the game. Oh well.
  7. As seen on the official website here. Lots of people buzzing about this in status updates, but nobody wants to make a thread? Seems that population has hit low enough that they feel the need to consolidate. They're hedging their bets though and leaving East and West as backups, but it will probably result in an even worse state if they ever try to go back after too long. There are talks of server transfers being an option, so if you want to bail on NA to jump to another server, you may get a chance to do so soon. I might see what the low tier population is like on the central server, but if it sucks, I'll see what my latency to EU is like and possibly transfer.
  8. I've used this site's tools to track my performance and compare myself to others since some of the earliest days of my WoT career. Each of my play sessions for the past several years has always started by opening up the ActiveDossierUploader first. Sad to see it go, but perfectly understandable. There are other tools out there for tracking and comparing performance, even if they aren't quite on the same level, and the drive to do that isn't nearly as strong in the WoT community today as it used to be, for various reasons.
  9. There's no point in trying to ace anything in tiers 1 or 2 on NA server. Tier 1 is near impossible if you aren't a reroll because your tier 1 games will otherwise have low population (7-10 players) and tier 1 tanks can't reasonably compete with tier 2 tanks due to firepower nerfs and map changes. Tier 2 is just about as bad across the board. Keep in mind though, I'm saying all of this with experience from a year ago now. There was a "recent" update, I think, which rebalanced how tiers show up in battles, but I don't know how successful that's actually been in the low pop areas of the low tiers. I'm not sure what kind of "evidence" you could bring to WG to get them to care to address this.
  10. NA server is completely fucked in terms of what qualifies as an Ace Medal. At this point, I wouldn't even be surprised if Ace Medals were straight up denied to anyone that doesn't qualify for newbie MM. If you find someone getting an Ace Medal in tiers 1 or 2, they're very likely either a reroll or not playing on NA.
  11. My gut reaction is to say "garbage in, garbage out" because your opening post doesn't really contribute much for starting a "conversation". Then I remember that you're not the one in charge of this forum's posting culture, and it's obvious between the two which is the bigger problem here. Before you answer any questions about 4k or 3k or whatever, you have to take a look at what you're measuring and answer how it's being measured and why it's even important. There are others who might have gone or may be willing to go into how the many changes to the game have upended the meaning and value of every community-driven rating. If you don't take that into account, not only can you not make any informed statements on the difference between 3k and 4k, but you also can't make a good case for the difference between hitting 3k years ago and hitting 3k now. If you conclude there's a significant enough difference there, then maybe it doesn't even make sense to measure whatever you want to be measuring in those terms, which makes your question moot.
  12. This isn't how they really sound in the game, is it? They're all way too clean. No radio noise or anything. USA makes my dick limp. She's the most dispassionate and boring voice of the bunch. Huge contrast going from listening to UK to USA.
  13. Forum ate my new thread, didn't even save a draft.  Some complaint about not filling in required fields even though it had both a title and a body.  Oh well, I'm sure that discussion topic wasn't important anyways.

    1. Whole_Nutmeg


      Well now I'm curious

    2. Kuroialty


      Just ask Enroh.

  14. So many people here have avoided the cap so much that they don't even know how the mechanic works.
  15. So are you saying that you lose interest in this game when you aren't grinding?
