  3. In the past year, there have been over 30 times that Wargaming NA offered a premium tank for sale in the premium shop only and not had the tank available in game for gold. Some players viewed this as an obvious money grab by Wargaming NA because the premium shop price is always higher than the price if you bought gold and bought the tank in game for its gold value. Also some players say it devalues the gold won in tournaments and clan wars because you can't use the gold on anything new. I recently filed a ticket asking if I can buy the M41 90 GF for the gold price instead of through the premium shop. "Ticket #820558 Category:WoTSub-category:In-Game Goods Over the past year, Wargaming North America has released about 30 tanks in the premium shop only and not available n game for gold. Last month I saw that the M 41 90 GF was going to be available in August. Today I saw its available for sale only in the premium shop and not available in game. Is it possible to purchase the M 41 90 GF with gold? I was told that the value of the tank is 6500 gold. Since the M41 90 GF isn't available to purchase in game, would it be possible to deduct 6500 gold from my account and put the M41 90 GF in my garage?" Their reply after a long discussion: "All of this brings me back to your original question, which is "can I purchase the M 41 90 GF for Gold?" - unfortunately the answer is no. These bundles are available on the Premium Shop exclusively, and can't be purchased with in-game currency via the tech tree." To compensate me for my disappointment, they gave me 3 days of premium time. So is their policy a money grab? Does it devalue gold now that you can't buy anything new with the gold?

  5. We haven't had a tanks contest in years, and In the past I've acquired gaming mice and WOTLABS used them to run a contest. I'd like us to do that more often if not monthly. My goal: Obtain support from the community to collect donations of paypal, gold, tanks, premium time, gaming gear, etc. and then establish a monthly contest. Those that have donated can still participate as long as the correct dated screenshots and replay are posted during the contest period. I don't know all the particulars to starting it, but maybe one of the admins could establish a paypal or patreon contest donation account?

  7. Just checked this service out, its actually amazing. I had an old gamestop gift card from like 2 years ago with $20 left on it, got 3k gold delivered for it. It's an incredibly easy way to dump some excess value that you had no idea you still had.
  8. EDIT: Giveaway has expired! 100k codes were given out - and they may be doing another one at some point ( Download overwolf from (Works for NA/EU (Sorry SEA/SG/RU players )CONFIRMED by Overwolf Staff) Then follow these steps to get 1k gold for leaving it open while playing/idling on WoT. When it asks you to sign up - you can use your normal email or a email if you don't want to recieve emails from Overwolf. E.x. Put in "[email protected]" for email, and go to to access the disposable emails' address. Proof that it's real: Overwolf may seem like a sketchy program but it's legit. It may affect system performance so you can just uninstall it when you're done or keep it if you like it . Proof it's not a virus: If the "Giveaways" tab is not showing up, try the following: Re-start WoT and the "social hub" - and make sure you're signed in to Overwolf. (Or you can try the refresh button, near the top of the page a few times) Another reported solution is to go to the overwolf website or on the client and update it. pls upboat +1 me if it worked for you I'm actually trying to make a comeback here ;_; PROOF THAT IT WORKS
  9. Hello fellow tankers, I have no idea where to put this so in he newbie place this goes (since I am a noob compared to y'all: color change made me green but I still feel below average) I know that you can gift gold and tanks via the WoT official website. My question is simple: Can I gift a friend some of my in-game gold in-game? (My guess is no but it never hurts to check) The reason I am asking this is because I would like to do a friend a favor while not spending $ on this game. I have at my disposal some gold that I have earned through various events and such, and was wondering if it would be possible to gift this friend a tank/give him the gold to do so without having to spend real money. Thanks, FavreFan4ever
  10. Since boasting and poasting and e-peen measuring is very common on this forum I thought I would give the superpeenises an opportunity to earn some easy gold. Edit: People have to finish this before the 12th of December to get their pots of gold or donation to wild life. Challenge: 200 games on a switched server(NA on EU and EU on NA) all replays hosted for sharing and stats documented in tier 10 tank chosen by me and said unicum(s). EDIT: I won't be too harsh on the time limits. The reward will follow a scale like this: 70%wr>30000 gold 65%wr>12000 gold 60%wr> 5500 gold I can help with access to accounts for this challenge on each server. Interested parties will post below, and the best canidates will be chosen by me. I will reserve the right to say no if more than 2 acceptable candidates from both NA and EU applies. Which server has got the unicums who not only talk the talk, but walk the walk? Edit: From EU: Embryonic Journey, Poltto, Stefan_XD & Moukka Who is Stefan_XD? Well look at his stats in the T-54 for starters: 4.8k average damage in the T-54! 1700 average XP! Over 5k average damage in the Obj 268! Who is - I'm stronk, basically all of my recently played tanks are in the top10 on vbaddict and +1200 avg xp (see Leopard 1, Leopard PTA, M26 Pershing, 110, T20, Chaffee, A-44, Obj 416, IS-2..) - I play mostly solo and all game modes To switch it up and compare the difficulty of solo carry in tier 9 and tier 10, Moukka will be playing the T-54 full gold spam(if he wants). Same rules as the others. From NA: PityFool, Precambrian, Jojackington, External007, SmyleeRage & BigCheese256 This will start as soon as we get the details sorted regarding accounts.
  11. So i was wondering if anyone has made a chart or something that tells you exactly how much free exp would be required to go from tier 1 to 10 down a line. Im talking just basics. I'm always interested in how much free experience i'd need to get certain 10s. If nothing like this exists i might make one in my spare time if this is something other people would be interested in. So is this something that is out there?
  12. Scout looks for clan (and gold)

    Hi there, I've got blue eyes, an athletic body, speak multiple langua- oh wait... My hopes are to join one of the 'Experienced/Competent ' (or higher obv) clans, which Diastant described in his topic. The plan is to join your clan only temporarily (I'm a student, living in EU). So I'll be playing lots (~10hrs a day during june and august, less in july - see below). After the summer, I'd leave your clan to make room for a permanent member, if you want me to. What am I looking for? Clan wars: during June I think I might be able to play ~5days/week, don't care which days. during July: I'd say 1-2 nights/week due to my job I'll have during August: the first few weeks I should be able to do ~5/week again, the last 2 weeks probably less first week(s) of september: 3-5ish/week Platoons: Lots of time to play means lots of games, which I want to win, so I'm sort of looking for a clan that platoons quite regularly. (I guess this is sort of normal but figured I'd post anyway) (<3 playing X's most) Tournaments/skirmishes Would be lovely if your clan participates in these, as I'd like to rake in as much gold as possible. Naturally these shouldn't interfere with the clan wars. What I can offer? Flexibility: being a european, I might be able to join CW sooner (and preferably would) than some people over the pond, who are still @ work. Stats: check sig (bit lower than usual atm because 3weeks of toaster without mods) and 2years+ of WoT experience. I've advanced (almost) every line and generally know how to handle tonks. 'Maturity': I'm turning 20 in July Vehicles: X's I have atm [8]: IS7, AMX 50B, obj 140, 121, bchat 25t. (preferably not get it locked), FV183, obj 263, JagdPzE100 X's I have unlocked [4]: FV4202,E100, t62a, obj 268 - planning on buying the E100 and 62a in that order X's I'll be grinding [2]: Leopard (want to get beginning July), T57 (not really in a hurry) As for skirmish/tournaments: Extremely active on both WoT and wotlabs fora, and once I get home (16th), also in-game. Ask if you need anything else... Conclusion: I'm very flexible, lots of WoT experience (none in CW though) with, I think, very good situational awareness (in pubs that is). I'm aiming for the best clans, but I realize that there will be some sort of trade-off between my presence possibilities and the other things I can offer... Please, if there is anything else you want to know (or random reader thinks I should add), just ask. Garbaged on OP's request.

    Edited- you're too late...all gone! Aliernware is offering 300 gold/1 day premium giveaway...hurry keys are going quick!
  20. We have this mod that tells you who shot you (even if undetected, a little broken in CW ) with what ammo type. Anyone has skills to make script that creates text document during battle and if possible, also asigns win ratio value to shooter ( should be readable from XVM). I would need tank name, winratio of player (maybe also wn6/wn8) and ammo type. It shouldnt be hard for someone with decent phyton skills. I am interested who is guilty of gold spam. I expect blue and dark green players to be biggest goldspammers but its just a guess for now. I believe results will be interesting, especially for tanks like hellcat ,e100, t54s, t69 etc... edit: author included source code, it should be as simple as adding one line of code that stores info to text document!!!

  22. ☭ Comrade tankers, As you all have surely heard, the great and everlasting Party has announced that high-quality HEAT and APCR shells, produced by the exceptional effort of the workers' might, are now available to all tank divisions without requiring the use of golden ration tickets. In addition, all premium shells are granted at a great discount to immediately encourage the use of these weapons against the enemies of the people's Republic. This short experiment presented here with 30 battles in the SU-26/122, the Soviet Union's most feared light self-propelled artillery platform, aims to draw some observations on the effectiveness of Russian HEAT shells and how practical it is to use them all the time to smite the hordes of fascist and capitalist tanks on the battlefield using said SPG. One of the first things we had wanted to try after the Gold Shell Revolution was to field our SU-26 with a FULL LOADOUT OF 28 HEAT SHELLS. However, a full loadout was decided against because it was deemed excessively excessive, and it is known that despite their unyielding penetration, HEAT shells do not have splash damage, making them similar to the effects of standard AP shells. Our ever diligent records and calculations regarding our combat statistics indicate that the SU-26 boasts a hit ratio of ~60%. Strong as such a value may be, to even think of wasting the remaining 40% of all HEAT shells fired and having them do 0 damage in battle is clearly capitalistic. As such, the SU-26 was armed with 14 superior quality HE shells and 14 newly acquired HEAT shells, such that HE may be used in situations when a hit may be questionable. It was then decided that very accurate economic and combat records be kept over a period of battles to observe just how much more dangerous the SU-26 becomes when armed with HEAT, and if using HEAT at such a constant rate will result in any severe reduction of silver ration tickets by the Party. The analysis has been complete and the results now released for the benefit of the working public. Of course, we will first provide evidence to support this authenticity of this experiment and any observations drawn from it, unlike some fascists who use vague anecdotes or capitalists who use garbage numbers pulled out of their landfills. The evidence is thus presented in the form of real live battle footage of glorious Soviet steel and Party-approved records of combat performance and expenditure of rations: Full Replays of glorious SU-26/122 in action: http://www.mediafire...6c2c0qkq2p5hp2o End-of-battle screenshots: http://www.mediafire...77z81813g5gfb4b And now, on to the actual study. The conditions of the experiment are thus: >30 battles of Solo Pub - a valiant struggle against waves and waves of malicious enemies and "teammates" alike. >SU-26/122 is armed with 14 each of HE and HEAT shells. >HEAT shells were acquired at 2000 silver ration tickets; half-price. >HEAT shells were not simply spammed like a crayon-eater would, but were fired at discretion on hard targets. >From the 8th battle onwards, we activated our ration of Premium Economics Policy, complements of the people's Party. However, we account for the flow of ration tickets and experience for both Standard and Premium Economics Policies in all our battles, so this should not affect any results in the experiment. The results of the experiment are detailed in the following chart: These numbers alone do not mean much, so here are records of our overall SU-26/122 performance, which include past performances. These were taken after the actual experiment because somehow an error prevented the retrieval of records from before the experiment. The public may be assured that there will be some bureaucratic changes that will take place. Overall averages: >68% victory. >2.55 targets destroyed per battle. >866.23 damage points inflicted. >380 average EXP points awarded. Averages during experiment: >66.67% victory. >2.97 targets destroyed per battle. >968.07 damage points inflicted. >390.07 average EXP points awarded. Now we can notice the changes in performance. One major observation is that arming HEAT does NOT guarantee a complete rolling of our bumbling enemies and a 100% victory ratio. This is unfortunate. From this small sample size we can see that the victory ratio is still close to previous averages. However, we see that average kills and average damage has increased by a tangible amount, leading to an increase in EXP granted. This change may not be monumental, but it indicates the superiority of HEAT shells. But of course, this is already known. What is more significant to this experiment is the flow of ration tickets when commissioning HEAT shells. It can be seen that a commander using a moderate average of 3.9 HEAT shells per battle on a SU-26/122 may approximately break even in terms of rations produced and expended. If using a Premium Economics Policy, one may even collect a fair sum of ration tickets to be used in the noble struggle against the enemies of the Union. HOWEVER, once these precious HEAT shells return to normal rationing standards, to use them in combat at the same rate will result in a severe loss of rations. Even when using Premium, one still loses out slightly. This may only apply to the SU-26/122, but we anticipate similar results if such experiments are repeated on other tanks. We warn all tankers to be cautious in their usage of HEAT shells; these revered objects take hours of labour from our comrades in the factories to produce and come at great costs. The standards of combat have not changed, and all tankers are still expected to utilize their standard ammunition effectively and only turn to golden shells in dire emergencies. For the SU-26/122, this means situations against heavily armoured Tier 6 tanks, or engagements at extremely short ranges (AKA "TD mode"), or any other such need. To spam them without discretion will actually result in many misses, 0-damage criticals, and a resulting deficit of rations; any capitalists who still insist on spamming as such will dig their own graves in debt. Comrades, be sure to also learn about the Glorious Expeditionary Soviet SU-152 Gold Economics Study: As well as Comrade Voroshilov's Supremely Soviet KV-1 Gold Economics Study: And the People's Party's Premium Soviet T-127 Gold Economics Study: In addition to the Great Industrial Soviet T-54 Gold Economics Study: Plus the Marching Volunteers' Chinese Type T-34 Gold Economics Study: Including the Spacefaring Cosmonauts' Soviet S-51 Gold Economics Study: Furthermore, the Proletarian Public's Soviet IS-6 Gold Economics Study: Be sure to comment and spread the Soviet glory!
  23. ☭ Comrade tankers, As part of our five year plan, we have begun fielding the new SU-152/152 to enhance the destruction of our hapless foes during our glorious campaign. This new beast killer is the pinnacle of Soviet Tank Destroyer Doctrine: if gun does not work, use more gun. Through the selfless toil of the Union's innovative tank engineers, we have successfully mounted an unstoppable 152mm gun on to a mobile chassis, allowing us to quickly deploy such weapons anywhere on the front. Combat experience indicates that the blast from the SU-152/152's mighty 152mm cannon can easily rip the turret off of any fascist Tiger tank. In addition, since the resolution of the Gold Shell Revolution, we have received multiple shipments of 152mm HEAT shells to enhance the gutting of such lemmings. Following the righteous path of the Soviet SU-26 Gold Economics Study, we have conducted analysis on the effectiveness and efficiency of using the SU-152/152's HEAT shells on a regular basis in our day-to-day stompings. Once again, we have created accurate economic and combat records detailing the progress of 30 battles to observe the tank's performance and economic characteristics. The goal is to determine how often such great weapons may be used without incurring penalties on our vital silver ration tickets. The analysis has been complete and the results now released for the benefit of the working public. To avoid lowly accusations of forging information on combat records, we have provided undeniable evidence to support the authenticity of this experiment and any observations drawn from it. Original uncut battle scenes of the SU-152/152 in glorious action have been authorized by the Party to be released to the general public, accompanied by unmodified copies of real combat records written directly by the tankers themselves. The evidence generously provided to us makes this experiment's credibility beyond question. Full Replays of glorious SU-152/152 in action: http://www.mediafire...xly7gbqlo9y17ff End-of-battle screenshots: http://www.mediafire...cdvw6mdec8uu88z Now, onwards to the study! The conditions of the experiment are thus: >30 battles of Solo Pub - where the People's Glorious Expeditionary Force boldly march forward to face conditions unknown. >SU-152/152 is armed with 16 HE shells and 10 HEAT shells. >Our original shipment of HEAT shells were acquired at half price: 2400 silver ration tickets. Partway through the experiment we ordered additional shipments at full price after each battle. >Partway through the battles, our ration of Premium Economics Policy had expired. However, we account for the flow of ration tickets and experience for both Standard and Premium Economics Policies in all our battles, so this should not affect any results in the experiment. >HEAT shells were generally used as the primary shell of choice to maximize destruction of hostile capitalists. The SU-152/152's characteristics favour fearless aggression in urban environments. Close range shots are favoured for higher accuracy using HEAT, while HE shells are more effective for splashing enemies at longer ranges and avoiding 0-damage track shots. The results of the experiment are detailed in the following chart: As we have just begun deploying SU-152/152's on to the battlefield, no past performance records exist. Instead, these are the records taken after the experiment and include all actions so far: The few extra battles are from field-testing and for assisting in crew orientation prior to beginning the official experiment. We can observe the performance of the SU-152/152 when using HEAT. Likewise with the SU-26/122, arming HEAT does NOT guarantee an utter rout of enemy pubs, and once again we are foiled in our attempts to achieve the legendary 100% victory ratio. Damage inflicted upon our enemies is high, comparable to our T-44/100 and almost as high as our IS-3/122, both of which are classified as Tier 8 tanks. However, without records of SU-152/152's performance without HEAT shells, we cannot definitely conclude quite how much HEAT contributes to our heroic battle efforts. Of course, it is strongly believed that HEAT does indeed drastically improve performance by allowing for alpha damage nearing that of the theoretical damage of our prototype ISU-152/152, which is currently in development. In addition, the public is encouraged to keep in mind that the 152mm cannon is a stock weapon for the SU-152 chassis. Such a high output of pain upon our enemies is highly likely to be attributed to the usage of HEAT, while we research additional alternative weapons for the SU-152. Now as to the main goal of this experiment: the expenditure of silver ration tickets when using HEAT shells. We can observe that using an average of 3.73 HEAT shells per battle is 100% sustainable for a SU-152/152 pilot if the shells were acquired at a discount. Furthermore, activating a Premium Economics Policy under these conditions allows for a strong gain of material to further the progress of the Soviet war effort. On the other hand, if the HEAT shells were commissioned at standard prices, we may find a moderate deficit in rations if continuing this pattern under a Standard Economics Policy. However, a Premium Economics Policy continues to allow sustainability in utilizing these weapons of mass destruction, and even allows for a moderate gain in silver ration tickets! Those under Standard Economics Policies must learn to use the standard HE rations well and conserve HEAT shells to avoid losses, but glory be to those who have been granted a Premium Economics Policy by the great and everlasting Party, for it allows us to perpetually smite the enemies of our Motherland!

  24. ☭ Comrade tankers, Today, we continue with our groundbreaking studies on the economics of gold shells with the KV-1 breakthrough tank, which is named after the people's Commissar Kliment Voroshilov. First, we would like to clarify common misconceptions about the name. Comrade Voroshilov is not the same person as Comrade Molotov, the same with how Comrade Stalin is not the same person as Comrade Lenin, even though their names end with the same sound. Voroshilov is the Soviet defense commissar. Molotov is the Soviet diplomatic officer. They are both famous names, as Voroshilov commands the KV tanks, and it is said that Molotov invented the Molotov cocktail. Folk tales describe how Molotov created his cocktail by accident a long time ago during a hypothetical meeting with the Germans regarding a mythical document called the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact. Much partying business took place during the meeting, and Molotov somehow became so intoxicated that he mistook a bottle of vodka for a giant cigarette and tried to light it. The alcohol outside the leaky bottle caught fire and Molotov immediately recognized his mistake. The part about the burning sensation on his hands certainly helped quite a bit to waken him. Molotov instinctively threw the burning bottle away, and it hit and shattered upon a table full of signed documents. The burning alcohol immediately incinerated all the contents of the table. Unfortunately, included among the destroyed documents was the one and only original copy of the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact. The meeting promptly ended after that. With the Pact destroyed, Germany saw this as a "fair" opportunity to launch an invasion on Mother Russia, thus opening the Eastern Front. Of course, the validity of this tale is questionable, since we would never negotiate with the fascists in the first place, for it is known that we have always been at war with them since the very beginning. Nevertheless, the name Molotov stuck with weapons involving flammable liquids in a bottle. Anyways, the focus of this study is the KV-1 heavy tank. When the Pride of Voroshilov was first fielded, there was no fascist or capitalist tank in existence that could penetrate its invincible armour. Soviet engineers designed it as a breakthrough tank to lead the way to victory. The bullets and shells that may leech the lives of our comrades in the infantry corps cannot hope to damage the Voroshilov tank. What may kill others is but a scratch upon the hull of the KV-1. Countless times have this noble machine lighted our righteous path with the burning wrecks of enemy tanks and bunkers alike. Though initially armed with a tested-and-true 76mm cannon, various other weapons were experimented with. One promising success was a short-barreled 122mm cannon designed to fire high-caliber high-explosive shells, which was very fitting for a breakthrough tank. This weapon was a nightmare for fascist infantry and bunkers, but was not as reliable against later tank models. However, as the Great Patriotic War progressed, there was a pressing need for more mobile and versatile tanks capable of quickly adjusting to the flow of battle. Seeing this, the great and everlasting Party ordered the retooling of factories to produce additional T-34 series tanks. The Voroshilov series was eventually dropped and succeeded by the Iosif Stalin series. Despite this retirement, the KV-1 still remains a monument to the power of our Soviet might. Proof of Soviet superiority (*not within the 30 battles of the study); as we see, Comrade Kolobanov's medal has a KV-1 on it: As it is known, due to recent events, i.e. the Gold Shell Revolution, large surplusses of HEAT shells were distributed among all tank regiments. It was found that the remaining models of the KV-1 could be equipped with 122mm HEAT shells, and trials have indicated that such shells, despite being launched from a short-barreled cannon, are highly effective against most tanks due to the ability to fully penetrate armour and dealing full damage. In these days of fast tank-focused warfare, is it possible that the old Voroshilov series can be brought back to its former pride and glory? This experiment across 30 battles in the KV-1/122 aims to assess 1) the practicality of Russian 122mm HEAT shells in terms of combat capabilities against the fascists and capitalists hordes and 2) the economic sustainability of our valued silver ration tickets in using such a weapon. KV-1 HEAT shells were treated as standard AP shells and was thus the primary method of crushing our enemies. Like AP, HEAT relies entirely on armour penetration. Due to relatively poor accuracy, it was preferred to fearlessly engage the enemy at close ranges when possible, or use HE shells to splash hull down enemies or targets at longer ranges. But is it viable to fire shells in this manner without depleting the Union's silver ration tickets and entering debt like the capitalists? The analysis has been complete and the results now released for the benefit of the working public. Prior to showing the results, we must first establish the credibility of this study. Authentic recordings of the KV-1 fighting fiercely on the frontlines have been de-classified and disclosed to the public. Furthermore, performance records and documents describing the disbursement of silver ration tickets have been released by the Party to further validate this experiment. Full Replays of glorious KV-1/122 in action: http://www.mediafire...e1xw12i4zfvz896 End-of-battle screenshots: http://www.mediafire...unmh0bl5j6y2ey5 We may now proceed to the study. The conditions of the experiment are thus: >30 battles of Solo Pub - Comrade Voroshilov leads the way and shows the light of victory to random pubbies. >KV-1/122 is armed with 25 HE shells and 25 HEAT shells. >Our many crates of HEAT shells were already acquired beforehand at 2000 silver ration tickets each, thus there are no post-combat records of purchasing additional HEAT shells. >Some HE shells were already available, but were used partway through the experiment. Past some point there will be post-combat records of purchasing additional HE shells. >A Premium Economics Policy was active for the entire duration of the study, brought to us by the people's Party. However, we account for the flow of ration tickets and experience for both Standard and Premium Economics Policies in all our battles, so this should not affect any results in the experiment. The results of the experiment are detailed in the following chart: These values may be compared to previous records of KV-1 performance, in which HEAT shells were not used. As we see, previous averages are thus: >61% victory. >1.63 targets destroyed per battle. >950.13 damage points inflicted. >508 average EXP points awarded. Compared to averages obtained with gold ammunition: >70% victory. >2.70 targets destroyed per battle. >1239.77 damage points inflicted. >647.27 average EXP points awarded. We can observe the changes in performance. Once again, arming HEAT does NOT guarantee insta-win against the hordes of pubs; once again the 100% victory ratio eludes us. However, from this sample we observe that win ratio has improved. Targets destroyed per battle has greatly improved, perhaps because of the high alpha damage of the 122mm HEAT shells, which increases chances for taking the killing shot upon an enemy tank. Damage per battle has also been improved, leading to an additional boost in EXP gained per battle. Clearly we can see that HEAT shells are very effective on the KV-1's 122mm cannon; without a doubt, the KV-1/122 is a very potent weapon. The Voroshilov is a tank to be revered by our comrades and feared by our foes! As for the economic side of HEAT shells, we find that if the shells were ordered at half price, we can perpetually use them to annihilate our enemies and generate a moderate income to fuel our Soviet war machines. If using a Premium Economics Policy, we may produce a strong income from our patriotic efforts. If the HEAT shells were obtained at full price, a small loss would occur, but of course this is because these shells are produced by the heroic labour of the working public of the Soviet Union and are highly valuable to the war effort. To maintain a moderate income, a Premium Economics Policy is required. Thus, to have Premium is to crush our enemies forevermore! Notes: Here are the overall KV-1 records upon the conclusion of the experiment: And here are unicorns: Comrades, be sure to also learn about the original Workers' Revolutionary Soviet SU-26 Gold Economics Study: As well as the Glorious Expeditionary Soviet SU-152 Gold Economics Study: And the People's Party's Premium Soviet T-127 Gold Economics Study: In addition to the Great Industrial Soviet T-54 Gold Economics Study: Plus the Marching Volunteers' Chinese Type T-34 Gold Economics Study: Including the Spacefaring Cosmonauts' Soviet S-51 Gold Economics Study: Furthermore, the Proletarian Public's Soviet IS-6 Gold Economics Study: Be sure to comment and spread the Soviet glory!
  25. ☭ Comrade tankers, Today, we are not testing the merits of Soviet HEAT shells, but that of Soviet APCR shells. Our T-127/45 has entered the last stretch of its heroic journey to eternal glory in the Tanks' Hall of Fame. The T-127 is a relatively unknown tank made as a prototype for the T-50 light tank under the Soviet infantry tank experimental project. The concept of infantry tanks did not display much success and the project was superseded by the universal T-34 series, the legend of the Red Army's tank corps. With the T-50 project cancelled, all completed T-50 models were simply strapped with rocket boosters and made into reconnaissance vehicles. However, remaining T-127 prototypes were incompatible with such a conversion. Nevertheless, it was found that their sloped armour, similar to that of the famous T-34s, allowed the T-127 to remain a worthy combatant, at least in small scale battles at secondary frontlines. To encourage the efficient use of all available military resources, the great and everlasting Party bestowed the Premium Tank status upon all remaining T-127s, adding incentives for its operation through the generation of additional silver ration tickets and favoured combat deployment. T-127/45 No. 811 was sent to our regiment, and thus our path to victory began. To enhance victory ratios further, we have supplied APCR shells for the T-127's 45mm 20K cannon, the most reliable and widespread small-calibre cannon of the USSR. Like HEAT, APCR has strong armour penetrating abilities but shares damage mechanics with standard AP in that it requires full penetration to inflict damage, or none at all. Unlike HEAT, APCR also boasts a large normalization bonus against cheap imitations of authentic Soviet sloped armour technology. Though previously rare and impractical, the Gold Shell Revolution, in addition to full support from the people's Party, has made APCR shells much more commonplace to maintain equality for all comrades. For our T-127's last 24 missions to 301 total battles, we have evaluated the achievements of the tank in combat and the flow of ration tickets when using APCR shells. The analysis has been complete and the results now released for the benefit of the working public. As always, we provide full evidence to prove the dependability of this study and any patterns we may see. The evidence comes in the tested-and-true format of live combat videos and post-battle records from the Party's historical archives. Full Replays of glorious T-127/45 in action: http://www.mediafire...6zy964l4cq5bflh End-of-battle screenshots: http://www.mediafire...3u8j66opy8yukt8 We shall now proceed to the study. The conditions of the experiment are thus: >24 battles of Solo Pub - a breathtaking race to the finish as the T-127/45 pub-stomps and team-drags on its quest for glory and immortality. >T-127/45 is armed with 60 AP, 30 APCR, and 12 HE. Halfway through the study, we changed loadout to 62 AP, 32 APCR, and 8 HE because we never really use HE. >APCR shells were all acquired beforehand at half price: 400 silver ration tickets each; thus, no records of ordering additional shipments are shown during this experiment. >Any HE shells fired were considered to be AP shells for efficiency in recording as they are both valued at 14 silver ration tickets. However, we do not believe we have fired even a single HE shell during this study. The results of the experiment are detailed in the following chart: These numbers may be compared to previous records of the T-127/45 in which APCR was not used. Previous averages: >71% victory. >2.58 targets destroyed per battle. >499.23 damage points inflicted. >496 average EXP points awarded. New averages with gold shells: >83.33% victory. >3.42 targets destroyed per battle. >619.92 damage points inflicted. >565.21 average EXP points awarded. It is such a pity that we were once again unable to grasp that alluring 100% winrate, though we would have come astoundingly close had it not been for that despicable 3-loss streak; a most shameful display. However, our great patriotic efforts have still brought us a very strong victory ratio, and with APCR shells we see that kill rates have been higher than ever before. Damage production, and thus EXP generation, have never been so great as it is now. The Soviet Union's well-crafted APCR ammunition allows us to frontally penetrate potato tanks such as the capitalist M3 Lame or more effectively slay the fascist Hetzers. Now, our enemies shall learn to fear the worker's mighty hand! As for the economic sustainability of APCR, we find that it is wholly feasible under any condition. The T-127/45's signature 45mm 20K cannon already has powerful AP shells capable of destroying most targets on its own, so APCR is not required all the time. Efficient Soviet manufacturing techniques also allow for inexpensive APCR shells that are easily accessible to all, and the Party's Premium Tank Policies allow for more than enough silver ration tickets to cover the expenditures of APCR. A Premium Economics Policy would almost double the net income of rations, but is not required for the everlasting destruction of our enemies. Praise be to the T-127 and the generosity of the people's great and everlasting Party!
