  1. Hey guys! Many of you already know me, but here's a quick rundown. I'll never be one to pump out 3 MOE's on my tanks. Im just not capable of shitting out huge amounts of damage across several battles in a row. Part of that is my play-style. Im more comfortable in a positioning engagement, than I am in a fast-twitch brawl. This can limit my ability to earn those 3 marks. Its good enough to get two, which I have on most of my tier 8+ tanks which I play a lot. Apart from turreted TD's which Im just learning how to play, I feel like I play all classes of tanks well enough and consistently enough. I play tier 5+, and will post replays across tiers 5 to 10. I stream from time to time, and will upload highlights to YouTube with commentary, or will record and post replays with commentary as well. From time to time I will do a replay pack of a specific tank. I did that last really a year ago when I did a 20 game each tier 10 challenge, with the BatChat highlighting that challenge while doing an average of 4k+ DPG across 20 games, and all of my other tier 10's well over 3k DPG. Right now, Im doing a "Padding" challenge, which means Im attempting to stay interested enough in playing well enough to get my recent over 3.5k WN8 and keeping over 65% recent WR, almost all solo and playing tier 8+ tanks. This means a lot of E50/M, BatChat, T55A, AMX 30p, IS7, CDC and my guilty pleasures, the T-34 (Tier 5 RU) and ELC AXM. Recent T-34 highlight from my stream Recording a replay with Commentary Current Favorite tanks in each tier 5: T-34, ELC 6: T-37, Bromwell, M44 7: E-25 8: Jp2, CDC, 13-90, learning to love the IS3 again 9: T55A, AMX 30p, VK-4502B, E50, M53/55 10: BatChat, AMX 50B, E50M, Leo1 Sad Fact: I do better in the T55A than I ever did in the 140, 62A, and T-54. Like, my DPG in the 55A is about 2800, while my 140/62A is around 2100-2300, and T-54 is just above 1750... Do not come here for RU Wedge replays I also watch these guys, specifically just to learn. Poltto Xena BigCheese256 Probably the most influential is @BigCheese256, whom I wish would be more active in these forums. His content is superb

  3. So, continuing my theme of shit-tank gifting via Wargaming, the first tank I noticed in my garage was the KV-122. And, despite me knowing its shit I've committed myself to playing the KV-122, Krupp Steyr (review/updates here) and the Fury for 25 battles each at least. So, what can I tell you about the KV-122? Well, 1st: Its another needless, pointless, unworthy clone yet again for the Russian Heavy tank Premiums. This gives them, and its not limited to: IS2B Church III IS6 IS6B KV4K KV-5 Obj260 KV-220 IS3A IS-5 And meanwhile, the US TDs continue to have nothing worthwhile. But, I digress. So, wtf do I have going for me in this tank right now? 5 battles, 4 wins, 2587 DPG What? Current equipment Vents, Rammer... Optics? Yes, optics. Why? Cause I didnt want to spend 500k credits on a GLD. Current Consumables Small Med/Rep, Auto Ext The Good: Its another freaking 122mm bias freaking gun. Mobility: I frequently get up to 40kph (Which is like, twice the speed of the fucking Krupp Steyr) The Average Gun handling is what you expect and know by now for a Rasha 122mm Turret Face can troll DPM doesnt feel terrible The Bad You're an up-tired tier 6 with your hull armor, so dont expect bounces from the front of your tank at all Repair times felt underwhelming, even with a nearly 5 skill crew So, knowing what I could see about the tank, I decided to play it differently than all my other Rusha HTs: Bully MTs. Thats my ONLY goal in life, is to bully MTs while playing this. And, its making this tank really work for me. The armor will not allow it to heads up other HTs in a 1v1, but its just fast enough to get into a good enough position to start bullying MTs. Heres two replays featuring a lot of just that mentality
  4. So, in anticipation of completing the scout missions for the T55A and having a CH Female crew I wasnt sure what to do with, I decided to buy back the WZ131. Started the night at 70% MOE, finished with this session and my 2nd MOE in short order And this mastery on Serene Coast http://wotreplays.eu/site/2047235#serene_coast-themarine3_5-wz-131 And, a LOT of haxusations! [J9] 310th_infantry[UFTU] (Firefly) : nice hacking [J9] 310th_infantry[UFTU] (Firefly) : wz [J9] 310th_infantry[UFTU] (Firefly) : fuck off [--] 310th_infantry[UFTU] (Firefly) : i was 20 meters behind a fucking bush and never fired my gun... [D0] beast_pro[D-KRG] (Nashorn) : loool [--] BOOMwagon (AMX ELC bis) : damn [D8] _Marine[REL_3] (WZ-131) : female crew is OP [--] BOOMwagon (AMX ELC bis) : wp sir [--] 310th_infantry[UFTU] (Firefly) : and was still spotted by ur cunt ass female crew fagets [--] 310th_infantry[UFTU] (Firefly) : reporting ur cunt ass for hacks [H2] _Marine[REL_3] (WZ-131) : want the replay? Goal is to earn my 3rd MOE by 150 games. The BullGod is a better damage dealer, but the WZ131 is a better scout which is perfect for missions. Ive gotten at least two other battles since buying with over 5k spotting, in situations where the BullGod would certainly be spotted. Looking at all the other tier 7 scouts in the game, I certainly feel the WZ131 has yet to be power-creeped. It could probably use a bit better terrain resistance, but otherwise this tank is perfect for completing missions.
  5. Hello fellow dads! A couple years ago, on a REALLY tight budget, I built my current desk. It was a hollow core bedroom door, and reinforced with a 1x3x7. I was afraid then and have remained afraid that every time its slightly shaken, it'll fall apart. So, with the wifey away at a conference I decided to spend my time building a new desk Parts: Height Adjustable legs, taken from a $5 goodwill table 4 -1in x 12in x 72in laminate pine boards 1 - 1in x 6in x 8ft pine board 1 box x75 1 1/2 wood screws 1 container of wood glue First, I took the laminate pine and stacked them, creating two pieces which were now 2in x 12in x 72in using the glue and screws. I sanded down what I determined would be the inner join, and applied a strip of glue. Then, across the bottom I cut the 8ft piece into 4 parts, and used that to reinforce the bottom, again gluing/screwing into place. Let this sit for a few hours, then attached the legs and sat it upright to dry overnight. The next day, I cut out the hole for the cables, trued up the edges, and tapered the outer corned to help prevent bloddy baby heads when they run into it. Took a router to it, then hand sanded the sides/top. Wiped it down, and started staining it. Tonight, plan is to get the kid to help me "paint" it. Basically, going to get paint all over his hands and feet, and let him crawl/walk all over it with different colors. Once that dries, going to apply several clear coats over that, then complete! (I would have kept it at this level of color... the wood looked freaking GORGEOUS!!! but the wifey wanted it to match the other furniture ) And, I should have put down a drop cloth. This will be fun to clean up
  6. Im working on being given permission to live stream the SandBox server and its headed a positive direction for being given that permission. What kind of things would you all be interested in seeing, and what kind of questions would you 'possibly' like answered? I cannot promise that I can or will answer all questions directly, and some of what I stream or record to upload could be restricted beyond just showing what it could look like. And any questions asked about other content within the Sandbox outside of what I am able to show, I would not be able to answer either. Some things I would like to cover (which are common knowledge right now) and will specifically look to get permission to cover: Training room penetration/accuracy examples at range Mobility 'races' Current tank stats Personal Opinions about balance Stun effects Etc.
  7. Second battle... omfg!!! It makes AMAZING credits, hide your commanders hatch and the pubbies go all retard! Cannot recommend this tank enough now that its been buffed!
  8. http://wotreplays.eu/site/1682545#el_halluf-themarine3_5-bat_-ch_tillon_25_t Fall back, fall back again. Fall back further. And then, win. I believe this was a 10v3 at one point
  9. This Thursday, February 5th Ive offered to do some mentoring for some random Facebook WOT group. The level of noobs there is... amazing. But, I do what to try and edumacate some of them. I plan on doing this from 12pm to 2pm EST, and will be using WOTLabs TS. I plan on running two battles with each platoon, and then moving on to two more people. I figure 12 people in two hours for those battles. If theres 2-3 guys willing to help some potentially really bad players just for a few games that'd be great. Full post: Thursday February 5th around 12pm EST, I plan on doing some mentoring for those who want some. Plan: Initial deployment orientation and battle flow reaction. We will run two battles first where I guide the deployments and then one where the two invitees guide, quickly go over post-game results, where to improve. After two battles, I will re-do the platoon and invite new players. Server: NA East Tiers: I have tier 5s, and 7 through 10s. I would prefer, however, preferential tier 8s as I need credits for skirmishes! Requirements: Be willing to listen WN8 of 500+ Overall WR of 45%+ Overall Willing to learn No bad attitudes. Will mute player and ignore, and boot from platoon. Understand that if I say something was a bad/stupid decision, Im NOT calling you a bad person, only calling out a flaw in play. Its only game! Use of Team Speak 3, have a working Microphone No Arty. Theres enough on the server now as is TS Location: I will use WOTLabs Teamspeak Server, found at ts.wotlabs.net:9467 If you're not in the current platoon, please keep quite if you're in the channel, or wait in another until its your turn if I have time Duration: 12pm until about 2pm If I get enough interest, I will try and get a few buddies from top US clans or otherwise to do a few platoons if they're willing. I will estimate 10 minutes per battle, so I can probably quickly mentor 12 people over the 2 hours. I specialize in Heavies, scouts, and some mediums (BatChat, E50M). Personal Qualifications: Was Primary Marksmanship Instructor for 3rd Battalion 5th Marine Regiment, instructing up to 400 Marines a week for 8 months. Was a successful Wrestling coach at the HS level. Have a Bachelors of Science in Informatics and Computing. Leave your in-game name below, and a "Yes" saying you agree to my requirements. e.g. "_Marine, Yes" Lets do dis
  10. Heyo! What I need are 4 proof-readers for articles I write that I can give commenting permissions for a google drive document. While I am confident in my abilities as a writer, I want to ensure my concepts and ideas are clear. I will credit you in the article, and you'll get a preview of what I hope is some quality content. What I am looking for: 1 Newer player, any skill level, with less than 5k battles and is NOT a re-roll or played on a friends account before getting their own. 2 players with average stats and skill level. Number of battles doesn't matter, but I would prefer 5k battles+, and at least blue WN8 recent. However, someone like Lert with 50k+ battles and green overall everywhere is fine too. 1 player of 3k+ recent WN8, 63% recent WR+. Re-roll or original account, it matters not. What matters is game knowledge to concept check and make suggestions as needed. What I ask is your email address to give you permissions to view and comment on material. I will notify you when its up, and what I am still working on. Please PM me your email address if you're interested. Thanks!
  11. Thought about this a little bit while I was pleasantly grinding the Leo PTA: What tanks have you played, which you felt really made you a better player? IE, the learning curve to make that tank successful challenged your previous way of getting things done, and made you approach tanks differently? My Hard Knock Tanks: Leo PTA Why? Taking return fire is just utterly devastating. Learning how to position to get damage without taking any in return from a medium tank perspective is something I need to better apply to my RU Meds T-34-3 Why? Gun handling and depression are not there. At all. Learning to use terrain features to create the depression is a huge bonus. As far as gun handling goes, though... well, thats what food is for I guess IS6/KV1 Why? I learned how to play the game in these tanks and even though I havent touched the KV1 in about 7 months, its still my 3rd most played tank. I learned how to win in these tanks, and to brawl. I need to revisit the PTA soon and work on not fronting, again (Thanks, Crab, for pointing this out to me!) and work on my positioning again. Over the 60 days Ive really let my play slip BIG time. Cant have that!
  12. This is my current PC http://h20564.www2.hp.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?docId=emr_na-c03363664 For the time being, Im ok with a Frankenstien PC, will eventually completely build a new one. A few things I have done: Samsung 128GB SSD AMD Radeon HD 7700 series video card (thanks TRex!) 450 watt power supply thanks to another friend I have $400 to upgrade this puppy upon graduation. What should I do? I would like to be able to play WOT on a much higher visual setting (playing with minimum, ~40FPS) and I do know at some point Im going to need a new power supply. Please halp!
  13. Ah, 2000th post! I started posting, I believe, December 8th, 2013... EXACTLY ONE YEAR AGO!!! WOOT WOOT WOOT!!! 2000 post in exactly a year? Who'da thunk it?! Basically, I joined this forum hoping to get better. I was about to leave 1Cav1, where I got my first taste of Clan Wars and how badly managed a clan could be. At that time, I was a 900 WN8-ish overall and 1200 recent. I jumped here and started reading. Started learning. By January, I was accepted to Millards Minions with about 1100 overall and 1600 recent. And holy crap, combining MM with this forum was amazing! I learned a LOT while I was there! I took place in more CW with good success. Minions held onto land for... 17 days straight with our first real attempt at CW, which was huge for us! Started playing in some competitive formats such as skirmishes and open league. All HUGE for the learning curve. I was in Minions for about 100 days, and it was awesome! At the end, I was about 1450ish WN8, 2500 recent and 10k battles. But, that came to an end when I prepared myself for the hazing wonderful new fucked up but awesome group, Relic. Initially was accepted to Aux (We all know, Rel Aux best Rel!). There, I continued to hone skills, play a lot more CW against some truly good clans. I was there for the Otter War (war of rowing ducks?) and watching some of those groups go at it was amazing. I watched replays of many of the fights, and that was truly eye-opening as well. I was there for most of Aux's battles, and for that reason some idiots thought I was worthlessly bad enough ha ha ha whatever to join Relic 3rd. Holy Crap. TL:DR Version Basically, this wouldnt have happened without WOTLabs combined with Minions to really bring home how to apply game mechanics and personal skill. I cannot stress enough how important it is to be with a like-minded group who really do want to get better! So, after 2k post... Thanks. Forum has had its greatest of times (Bun, and other baddies who have gotten better and been accepted unquestionably) and the worst (The great Un-Banning of Perma-bans). But through it all, the forum is still here to help players get better, to vent, and interact in an overall positive manner in spite of personal differences. Bravo. Bravo indeed
  14. From a reputable source, all CHAI players are required to have this garage mod as a constant reminder of their mission. Can Pity confirm/deny ?
  15. So, started developing carpel tunnel syndrome in both wrist. Now I could understand getting that in one wrist, but both at the same time? FML. *go ahead, get them jokes in* So, I ordered an ergonomic keyboard which should help a bit. I have one now for my office at work, and its seemed to help a bit. My mouse is a gaming mouse and pretty ergo shaped: Worth getting a mousepad with a bit of a wrist rest on it? And, what has worked for anyone else in helping to get rid of this pain? Hell, even opening a screw top beer almost set me in tears a few nights ago. Thankfully these symptoms just started, but they've come on fast and really painful
  16. http://forum.worldoftanks.com/index.php?/topic/399491-world-of-tanks-replay-tog-ii-again/ Pure WOT gold!
  17. Why the hell doesnt this tank have its own fan page?!?!?! probably because slow as shit... but I digress! Seriously, this tank in the right situations is just amazing. Even drunk as I am right now, I can do dis Back to back battles, lelelelelel This tank SHITS out credits. Like, a LOT of credits. Best return on value! The first battle here gave me my 2nd mark of excellence too! GET THIS TONK!!!!
  18. We have the wall of name and shame we have a wall of praise we have a wall of "I saw Kraft!" We dont have a home thread for the butt hurt which comes from using game mechanics to our advantage, and the utterly delightful stupid things the pubbies say! Examples: WR is luck I have a life You live in a basement Go back to school A small collection of a few of my favorites
  19. Atm, Im averaging a little over 3.2k DPG in my E100. I *think* Im getting into the right positions and making generally the right decisions, but atm I cannot win consistently and its frustrating at 40% WR. So, any kinda replays would be really helpful in getting this beast to work a bit better for me.
  20. Random thought here: The "meta" of the maps is changing. They're moving towards a brawl type environment to make the game easier for inexperienced players. This change for maps means most engagements are taking place at ranges far less than 300m, which for most tier 10's is well within view range. The latest example is El Halluf. Typically, mediums would play the mid, heavies go north, TDs camp and arty continues to ruin the game. Usually, mediums always had a great role with vision and overall shenanigans. Now, the north end of the map is a brawl fest: Win this now in a pub battle, for the time being you're going to win the battle. So, if the meta continues to mostly shift towards this, will DPM and an increase to general soft stats be more important that continuing to push out one's view range? Right now I dont have access to my *Most played Maps*, but I believe 7 of my top 10 most played are all city maps where vision control is minimal
  21. MUST USE ALL CAPS TO GO WITH IOC THEME, PLZ WATCH STREAM AS WE FAIL AT BEING BAD. #IOCBestKlan Come for the lolz, stay for the trollz http://www.twitch.tv/m40a3payne\ Stream moved here http://www.twitch.tv/NKRLz
  22. I was wondering about this last night ELC AMX does 425(ish) damage over 3 games and gets their .66 average kills. Thats ~1250 WN8, the *average* expected value of their damage done (math may be off, but point taken anyway) However, per this chart thats actually a light green color, and 400 points above the Average WN8 rating of that player Hate this but: If you're doing the *average* in your tank, shouldnt that rate a WN8 value of that battle between 650 to 849, instead of about 1250 to 1399?
  23. As many of you are aware, Garbad started the This is NOT the exact same freaking copy of Garbad and what he's doing, but close. They're purples. They're going to be stupidly more consistent than us greens/blues/yellows usually will be. But, that doesnt mean we cannot compare how they perform for the average player (which, fml, Im not average. Somehow, Im fucking better than 95% of the WOT population) Its going to be very simple here. They're much more controlled in their experiment and should be the baseline. We are simply additional support data. Proposed Rules: Have the Obj140 and the T62A Dont care about keeping crews the same, play what you got. Ammo loadout: No more than 33% HEAT Try to platoon as much as possible. Track how you perform in each for minimum 50 games (preferably 100) At least yellow WN8 overall, and dark green recent. Ive started with my T62A, as I just purchases this tank today and will be the easiest to track. 8 Battles, 5 platooned WR: 63% DPG 2501 Survival Rate: 50% WN8: 2762 Crew: 2.5 skills Loadout: 39 APCR, 10 HEAT, 1 HE Initial thoughts: Survivability is quite high thus far, and the gun handling is freaking god like with VStab. Im used the the Obj 140, but the slower speeds of the T62A seem to keep me from overextending as much. Aside from the turret, however, everything is going to pen your tank so keep that in mind.
  24. So, Im developing a replacement for http://uc.iupui.edu/community/Home.aspx Its clearly out of date, and Im new to using DNN and specifically, Bootstrap Short Codes. The problem Im having is within the DNN HTML modules. They should support HTML5+Bootstrap. However, this isnt the case in most situations. Animations, fine. Accordions, kinda. Carousels, forget about it. If someone has experience using DNN Id like a bit of help on how to use those short codes.
  25. So, I know this isnt a metric which we use anymore, but my WN7 is simply stuck and staying right around 1500. Why? Cause, Im either bad at killing tanks or bad at kill stealing. Even while I was over 2400 WN8 for a brief time (RIP starting new tank lines, right?!) my kills per battle have consistently been right around 1.2. Get the damage? Sure, can do. But stealing getting those kills? Newp Tanks Im playing/grinding right now most of the time AT2 (8 battles, 16 kills, such PEW PEW PEW) Panther 2 (113 battles, 104 kills, 59% WR, 1408 DPG) BatChat (240 battles, 345 kills, 55% WR, 2438 DPG) M46 Patton (108 battles, 150 kills, 58% WR, 2246 DPG) E75 (120 battles, 104 kills, 54% WR 1886 DPG... OMFG SUCH BAD) (.94+2+1.44+1.39+.87)/5 = 1.32 kills Im also playing some scouts and premiums, but the ratios are a bit lower still bringing me down to 1.2 kills per battle. So... what do I need to potentially consider in order to get my kills up? I dont feel like Im in the habit of trying to get more damage instead of taking a gun out. Do I need to check my positioning and find ways to improve it? Just very unsure about where to start with this lil thang.
