  1. Oh. I suppose my question about its release still somewhat applies though. But if we are talking about the tier 1, it looks really bad to me on paper due to low penetration, lack of armor, and crew size. The Hotchkiss family and French tanks at least have some saving grace in their heavy armor protecting their crew, but this tank doesn't have that luxury. Of course, it will be easy enough to just kill this tank with most autocannons in the tier and tier above, so the crew vulnerability is just one more issue on top of a trash heap. Plus, the stock autocannon looks like the better option over the second gun just because the second gun has about 500 less DPM, putting it at one of the lowest values of the tier. Then again, the values altogether look very similar to the long-respected T1, so I could be completely off base, but I figure that enough crucial aspects of it are worse by comparison to the T1 that it will not stand out as anything special.
  2. I don't have this. Did I miss the event where they gave it out? I couldn't find an announcement for it anywhere. I know I'm not missing out on much, at least, since this is effectively a TD and tier 2 TDs are garbage on principle.
  3. just stop fucking talking about it in status updates and actually make a thread about it already, goddamn https://worldoftanks.com/en/news/general-news/preferential-premiums-perfection/ I wonder if they're going to start with all tier 8s and work their way down. Tier 2 has a few preferential premiums, and even one tech tree tank that only sees one tier.

    The Czech Kolo-Hose - The Tier 1 Abomination

    I just got the Ace in this myself off 752 base XP. Nice to see that the requirement for Ace in this is finally reasonable. I just wish I didn't have to sink 900 battles into the tank to prove a fucking point. All the caveats I mentioned above about this tank and my stats with it still apply. Abbey is fine in tiers 1 and 2 and a huge step up from Shittentard. The base camping is a bit lame, but par for the course, and the bush camping just means view range is somewhat relevant again, and that's great. It's no sniper's paradise, but that's fine. Italian low tiers are all pretty good. L6/40 has been giving me huge problems though - ~50% win rate over the first 50 or so games despite having best DPM I've seen in it. Will write more on them later once I've finished hitting 150 in the tier 2s.

    Update 1.0.1 world of tanks

    Actually kind of excited. Both new tier 2 tanks look pretty decent. One is like a Pz II, but with a much slower clip, and the other is its own unique thing, but sort of like if you gave the Chi-Ni an actual gun and some frontal armor. I'm predicting solid 6's or better for each of them, which will be a breath of fresh air to play compared to the 4's and below I've restricted myself to over the past year plus. On another note, the autoreloader mechanic is going to be stupid as hell to ever play against. Counting shells left in an opponent's clip or how long they have to reload against tanks with those guns will be somewhere in the range of requiring full attention or being thrown out the window.
  7. Abbey showed up in a tier 2 match. That was weird. Tier 1 mastery medals are probably still bugged. Koloho is still, at least.

    Soo... who got a Type 59 this Xmas? :)

    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.
  9. Played some games on my alt today.  Low tier population and tier distribution is actually pretty good.  Possible return to game incoming?

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

  10. 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.
  11. Is the point to laugh at you for using Windows 10?
  12. 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.

    WoT new personal rating system

    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.

    Merging of NA servers

    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.

    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.
