  1. Tier 9 meds and heavies are definitely the most fun to play at the moment. Apart from few outliers, there isn't really any bad tank among them. Also they benefit the most from the MM. Getting a tier 10 match is not that harsh, and quite often you get to bully poor tier 7 tanks. Also, within the tier itself, tier 9 is by far the most balanced tier. There is no tank that does more than 750 damage per shot (which should be the case for tier 10 as well, imo). There are some tanks that are a bit too strong (T10, WZ1-4) but they are not as cancerous as some of the counterparts in other tiers. And also, with premium account you can make nice profits while playing in this tier, because you are not pushed to spam prem ammo all the time. I would really love to see WG does a tier 9 campaign for once. That would be amazing. And also some other tier 9 tournaments. I once participated in a 3v3 tier 9 torunament, it was a lot of fun!
  2. I agree. i think i will pick up lorr 40t though. the rest is - meeh, or i already have it
  3. I would throw my money on the screen for: 50% discount on a year of premium Defender arty-free game mode or even better complete removal of all arty and this stupid game mechanic some game mode with respawns / garage battles / deathmatch (but more rewarding than it was before, with whole t22 fiasco...) Not having to play like half an hour for a reward equal to a single 4-minute random match Rework of Japanese heavy tank line (read: no retarded HE guns) Actually general rework of HE mechanics. I am pissed when i take damage from a shitter that doesn't even need to aim his gun, while RNG trolls me over and over again, while i miss or not pen mine When fully aimed, at least 90% of the shots to go exactly where i aimed them, but make snapshots more random, even more than now ... ok i went too much into balance issues, so I will stop
  4. Contrary to popular belief, I loved that tank, and actually 3-marked it in the new MM. ProxyCentauri is right, most of the tier 10s, you won't be able to hurt. But basically, you shouldn't fight them frontally ever. Same and lower tier tanks, you can bully quite a lot due to the 120mm frontal plate armor. Turret is also quite good. Gun handling is mediocre, and I was driving this thing without a rammer believe it or not! So GLD, VSTAB & Vents + 5 skill crew from Obj140 or T62. Either way, I think I am one of the few people from WoTLabs that liked the tank. If you are not 100% sure, than maybe it is better to skip it.
  5. I did it in Strv S1. The tank has only 1000 hp. UDES has the same, right?
  6. Nooo of course not manually I use WoTNumbers application to collect data. The app is using SQLLite database to store data. I connected to that database via ODBC, and extracted it all into QlikView. QV is an amazing tool that let's you do all sort of analysis, and all in a few clicks. So that is how I got the graph For example, I can tell you, which day in a week i have highest win rate in my tier 9 tanks, or during which time of the day. Or who is the player in the past months that killed me the most, or whom did I kill the most etc.. I can dig up really all sort of info.
  7. And the mighty Löwe is 3-marked: Ah it has been the source of many frustrations. Took me far longer than i thought it will. Have a look at the progression (data is from last 10 days, far more matches than i dare to admit): And the 3-mark match: http://wotreplays.eu/site/3930742#fiery_salient-3maj86-l_we
  8. Would excel export do the job?
  9. /tinfoil hat mode on: I think they added this Victory/Defeat screen just to take away some of the time from your personal reserves. /tinfoil hat mode off
  10. It is SQL Lite database that WoTNumbers application generates. From that, I made 2 of my own summary tables in MS Access. I can send you all of that, if you have MS Office. SQL Lite is free, and I can send you then the definitions (and queries) for my summary tables. I believe it would take you like 10 minutes to rebuild it. Or, I can export to some CSV, or whatever? It's not too big of a database.
  11. OMG thanks! you shouldn't have. BTW, i can send you my whole database if you want, there is whole lots of interesting stuff there... if you have the time (and desire) to go through it.
  12. Ah shit, i didn't save my excel file... ah you are probably off by one for some in the middle... Do i have to re-do it all?
  13. @Liberty75 So out of 227 matches (tier 10 matches, i was tier 8, all Standard game mode, most of it played solo, between September 2016 and end of March 2017), here is the spread you were asking about. So there were 7 matches i was the only tier 8 in my team. There were no matches with more than 9 bottom tiers, so I removed them from the axis. I hope this helps.
  14. I am joining in the tinfoil club here as well. Few months ago i hit the magical 3k wn8 / 60% recent (the goal i set for my self). I maintained it maybe for a week or two, and then it all went downhill. I am no unicum, but like @GehakteMolen mentioned, if I don't carry really hard, most likely i will not win. I rarely ever platoon, and when i platoon, i do it only with my brother (who is barely 50%, 1000wn8 player). The explanation with bots seams plausible. Is it really the truth.. well that is way into the tinfoil category.
  15. As the tank is top of the tree on EU, i have been playing it quite a bit these 3 days. First impression: I loved it! And it seemed that I couldn't lose with it. But the fairy tale was over very fast. 2nd day the session was horrible, and yesterday was ok-ish in the end. I haven't played it before the buffs, and I'm happy that I didn't. Generally i don't find the tank very good, so imagining it was even worse creates really bad images in my mind. The tank is jack of many trades but master of none: It has a good mobility, but often times i come to the positions after the fast mediums (like batchats, 30B and so on). Camo is good, and with full camo crew (that I have), you can really come close and bush kemp without being spotted, but if there is T100LT, he outclasses you completely. And I think some lower tier lights as well. Gun is really a weak point. Gun handling is bad. Running food is a must if you want the gun to listen to you at all. Pen on standard round is poor, it is the same as the tier 8, amx 50 100. And out of 3 shots that you have, only one will pen, while one will miss completely and one will bounce. Premium shell has only slight increase in pen, and it is heat. With generally poor gun handling, I didn't rely on this shell at all, and now I am running almost full APCR. Generally i see the problem that this tank can't assassinate isolated targets like autoloaders generally can. Even if your target is within the limits of your clip, most likely you will bounce a close range shot. Even in the late game, if you preserved your HP, you can't expect to reliably trade 1 for 3 shots - which is what should make autoloaders extremely powerful in the late game. You can't play the scouting game very often due to the map pool, but when you can, than you can rack up the spotting damage. Those occasions are too rare to reliably count on it as a tank carry potential, so I like to rely more on my gun, which is the weakest part of the, already not so great, tank. In the last session i had yesterday, I played more of a passive role early game, and wait for opportunities. But i think this way I limit my own carry potential, and lower the influence in the match. I did have 60% win rate session, although I am not sure that it is the proper way to play it. Low health pool is making sure that any mistake you make is punished severely. Have in mind that a lot of tanks oneshot you. Yesterday i was oneshot by Type5 who happened to blindfire a bush i was camping in... i was on the edge to smash my keyboard. There were so many cases where i wished i was in my batchat, or that i played T100, or sheridan or something else. There was not one situation where i was happy that i was in a tank that I was. Other tanks simply do things better... TL;DR: Generally i didn't like the tank, and most likely I will do the top of the tree mission, and bench it for good.
