    AMX 50 100 Appreciation Thread

    I came into the 50 100 a little bit apprehensive. Many friends despised the tank because of its aberrant drum reload time; I was used to the rapid fire reload of the American autoloaders, which I had played most recently, and was still haunted by memories of the Lorraine, a tank that nearly killed me getting through, but figured, tally ho m8, needed for tournaments and whatnot. My first ten games, I played with the crew from my M4 45- 70% into their first skill, and I absolutely despised the tank. I could not make it work for the life of me, and quickly got frustrated. I rage-transferred my much more experienced Bat crew (not like we're fighting in CW amirite) into the tank, slapped some camo on for good luck, and tried to be more patient. The results: Hello, my new favorite t8 pubstomper! Can't wait for the stupid radio op off the M4 45 to get to 100% so I can slap BiA on there.. although in other news, I'll be needing an FCM to train myself a crew for the Bat heu hue heu hue And of course, an obligatory camera whore picture of my little derp machine: Two notable late game carries (the pubs man, if they just let you keep on reloadin', this damage piles up): And this next one just today, so far my highest XP game (pitiful, I know, wtb Chaffee) Absolutely, completely goddamn mental. What are your opinions of the 50 100?

  3. From: http://forum.worldofwarships.eu/index.php?/topic/59528-armor-penetration-curves/ fnord_disc over at EU managed to cobble together code that fits very closely to what WG uses to calculate penetration over distance, and recently released the source code for it (which @Captain_F22ACE improved upon, more on that below). I won't get into the specifics of the equation (feel free to read the reddit link below for that), and a lot of this data requires the ability to extract gameparams.data to obtain specific shell characteristics not listed in-game such as drag constant and krupp value. Basically how to read the graph: Pensacola/Indianapolis/New Orleans 203mm AP: Blue line = raw penetration (what we are familiar with in WoT since shell arc is minor outside of derps and SPGs). Raw penetration assumes you hit a perfectly flat, 0 degree surface Red line = penetration against the belt armor of the ship with vertical impact angle adjusted (but horizontally, e.x. player-controlled angling by turning the ship, still being 0) The creator published this code on reddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/WorldOfWarships/comments/560yg2/wows_ballistic_model_penetration Fun fact from reddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/WorldOfWarships/comments/560yg2/wows_ballistic_model_penetration/d8flmgs Also, @Captain_F22ACE improved upon this code. Added simulated penetration after striking an armor plate. I'll let him post the source code himself in case he doesn't want others to see But it looks something like this (Iowa 16" SHS AP shell used for example, sorry for overlapping text because 14" laptop scaling on 1080P does screwy things) ^155mm thick plate used here btw (Mosvka belt armor), and also with scout plane + main battery +16% range module included so you can see where plunging fire starts to take effect. Gun elevation sadly never reaches full 45 degrees like it historically did, maxes out to 30 instead. Distance is read in meters x 10^4, so "1.5" on the x-axis = 15km, "2" = 20km, and so on. ... It's not perfect since shells of very low mass (76mm on Smith) tend to get quirky readings on the improved code for calculating energy left after hitting the first place (as ships do have multi-layered armor, so citadeling sometimes requires going through 3-4 plates of armor), but the raw penetration calculations are still relatively accurate: ^ 30mm plate used here btw, didn't set actual gun angle for this so range is iffy. So yeah, have fun pouring over the graphs already there and seeing what is the optimal distance to engage a target.
  4. How useful 6th sense on HT? in particular on IS line. I'm grinding from KV-13 to IS currently and training my future IS crew for it in IS-2 got to 2nd skill and was planing to reset CM (with gold) to get 6th sense.. but posts like this http://forum.worldoftanks.eu/index.php?/topic/113531-is-crew-skillsperks/page__pid__1922843#entry1922843 make me doubt how valuable 6th on HT. On scout, TD it's no-brainier, on MT... I'd say same... but how about HT and not just any HT (e.g. long-range support like US T34/T32 or German Löwe ) but Russian brawler. My current Crew Tank Role Skill 1 Skill 2 Skill 3 Req Battles Req XP IS-2 Gunner Brothers in Arms Snap Shot TBD 25% IS-2 Loader Brothers in Arms Repairs Camouflage 25% IS-2 Driver Brothers in Arms Off-Road Driving TBD 25% IS-2 Commander Brothers in Arms Mentor TBD 25% BiA actually skill "0" and by the time I'll open IS, I'll be ~ 50% on my 2nd skill... 1.SO, should I just set rest of "TBD" to Repair to get it max. for this crew and do not reset CM? 2. I also have 70+K free xp and thinking about x5 convert event.. (at the moment it will get me to 98-99% on 2nd skill) so I could get mentor+6th without reset. Good idea? 3.How essential is Smooth Ride for Dr. ? I normally even don't try to shoot on the move.. except in F2F (e.g. circling in few meters) situations.
  5. So I was planning to put my results in Assassin's thread but I decided to make my own. So seeing as I hate myself and can barely make enough credits for clanwars I'm doing 50 games with gold and 50 games with a loadout that would make Sirfoch proud (0 heat). Sample size is small but it should be enough to get some results. Also, I think this is the right place to put this but idk. Goldspam loadout Regspam loadout give me gold Goals: 3.5k dpg with heat 3.4k dpg without heat Replays will be uploaded in batches of ~10 or so depending on my mood. Discuss. Also, goldspam, Skoda T50 and challenge should never be used in the same sentence.
  6. Since Gandaran is an idiot and also a masochist, he agreed to do this challenge if someone made a poast. So here it is. Expected: 65% WR / 1400 dpg / 3 MoE 65% WR / 1200 dpg / 3 MoE I'm pretty sure 1400 dpg would be one of the best on the server. He will be streaming it here: twitch.tv/gandaran and will also be uploading all of his replays in this thread. He will poast a nice (spergy) writeup about how amazing the TOG is, strengths (lol), weaknesses, how to play, etc. He will either solo or do a TOG platoon in his games. I'll update this with his progress periodically; look for his poasts if you want daily-ish updates. Good luck friend. -- Obligatory cat picture: -- Current stats: 8 Apr 2015 7 games - 87% WR - 997 dpg 12 Apr 2015 (morning) 31 games - 68% WR - 1096 dpg 16/17 Apr 2015 (late night/early morn) 72 games - 64% WR - 1109 dpg - 1 mark 17 May 2015 (Yeah this is still a thing) 86 games - 65% WR - 1120 dpg - pretty sure still 1 mark 1 June 2015 107 games - 65% WR - 1116 dpg - 2 marks(!!)
  7. Something tells me that the IS tier 7 should be an OK tank despite its long reload and aim time, but I was never able to get it to work. Years later - like now - I'm wondering about re-trying and side-scrpaing like a mo-fo. But is that all there is to this lackluster tier 7 heavy? Rammer, vents, and GLD would be my outfit. Despite going page by page here and in the WoT forums, I found only one thread here, and really no good threads elsewhere, on it.
  8. What is this game Seriously, I have no words. Feel free to voice your bafflement below. A side note: playing this match has made me realize how unreliable the AP rounds on the T110E4 are. From now on, I will shoot pure APCR.
  9. As I was reading the supertest patch notes for 10.0 this cought my attention: - Replaced the top (2nd) turret of the Caernarvon U.K. heavy tank with the turret of the Centurion Action X- Replaced the standard (1st) turret of the Conqueror U.K. heavy tank with the turret of the Centurion Action XAm I right in thinking that the Action X Centurions turret I'd far, FAR better than the top Caernarvon and stock Conqurer turret? Does that mean that hull down can once again be viable in some situations, because as of now anyone can lol pen the turret front of the Caernarvon ans stick Conqueror... WG have also stated in a Q&A that this change "Is flat out a WG fake." However, they explain that at the moment, there is no other way to buff these tanks without doing this. Also, since these tanks were paper projects, they are bending their "historical accuracy" rule for armour to try and make these tanks competitive. What do you guys think? Good sensible move by WG or will these tanks still be meh (Caernarvon) to Stronk once upgraded (Conqueror)?
  10. I used Chrome as my default browser. Ive installed nothing. No tool bars. Visited no porn/torrents/etc (posting from work PC... damn straight Im not going to do that crap on this PC). But, every time I open a new tab or try and do a google search, this URL takes the fuck over https://search.yahoo.com/?fr=hp-ddc-bd&type=dc-bcr-sm-rhb-32__alt__ddc_dsssyc_bd_com Tried using Malwars Bytes, etc. to remove. No clue at ALL where the fuck this came from and why Yahoo has taken the fuck over Chrome. Ive removed all other searches from Chrome Settings. Ive restarted several times. Ive opened no attachments. Clean install of Chrome too
  11. Hello blueberries,grapes and so on. I know some of you told me to not spam the forums everytime I make a new video,and I did that.Until now. This is the first video of its kind from Wot(i suppose) and I'd like to hear your opinions ! Don't lie to yourself and say you don't hate the Bulldog...if you see a watermelon (or above) platoon in the enemy team,you know u are fked. Big shoutout to WJDE and T-D-U clans whose members helped me with this video ! Enjoy watching !
  12. So I recent bought an STB-1, here are some (100) replays. (Edit: Mostly solo, but I did platoon some games.) http://www.mediafire.com/download/dhq2bltmdjy41iv/20150518_2111_japan-ST_B1_39_crimea.zip Around the end I started to get impatient and kept playing it on bad days, but oh well. If you have any questions feel free to ask. I did run Optics for a bit, but I ended up going with vents. (Edit: If you have any tanks you'd like replays of just let me know and I'll play some and upload them) Second set of replays here, I think it's 93 with only 80 of them being pub matches. https://www.mediafire.com/?cx0nyv37axf0bfv

    Legionnaire For Hire

    Yeah so... I'm clanless now, left ESPRT last night on good terms. This now leaves me free to do some stronks with all of you guys! I'm not too picky about who I play with, just add me to your friends list and send invs whenever. Oh and also pm me your clan's TS. I'm pretty fun to run with, although I can get a little loud when i'm drinking :/ HIT ME UP FRIENDS! Also, we need a Legionnaire for hire section :/
  14. I started ice skating casually after my sister brought me to the local indoor rink last December. I've gotten to the point where I can propel myself along the ice for a reasonable amount of time without falling over, but I can't do much apart from that. The snowplough brake doesn't seem to slow me down much (not that I'm any good at it) and I haven't been able to get the hang of other braking techniques yet. To any experienced ice skaters, what would you suggest a newbie do to improve? Any techniques I should try to learn in particular, and in what order? Thanks.
  15. Hai friends I am looking for a platoon buddies for my EU account. Right now I only have pref 8 but when I get further up the line I will play other tiers. So I only want 2500+ WN8 and 60% wr with the ability to play at night. Since I am an NA shitter I will play at weird times (5:00pm my time is 3:00am in Germany) I also get higher ping than I am use to so be okay with me whining about that. The most important thing I want is to have fun while platooning xD sorry if I sound needy but I don't like playing solo so it would be nice if you guys carried me <3 My EU account name is VLC_MediaPlayer
  16. So we all know the situation, each team has taken either the north or the south on swamp and the 1 decent player in an OP tank on each team is now in a prime spotting position but still unable to spot each other. The pubbies soon figure out that they can't spot said decent players without being spotted and blapped first. Cue the stalemate. My question is, in a light/med/heavy/TD, how do you go about breaking this stalemate and urging your pubbies to victory? Currently I'm going with park in a nice bush and go get a drink/take a leak/check the forums/reply to a text. TL;DR Swamp sucks, halp pl0x.

    ID this tank?

    Hello WoTlabs, While staring at the 9.7 Test Server Launcher as it updated my test client, I noticed that it actually had a French tank on it (note that the login screen for WoT almost never has a French tank on it, only the Renault FT IIRC). It looks a lot like an AMX M4 45, but could it be an AMX M4 1949? I can't paste the screenshot I took, and from past experience (probably just me) pasting anything on these forums just doesn't work (such as links to imgur)... Halp?

    For you nerds

    http://youtu.be/oBOTZnP5bQs go to 12:20 and listen to the angry ruski he rants annoyingly for like a minute about how an E-100 focused him when he was 400meters away for all RNGesus, arty, pub rage, whatever I don't give a damn for it, it's annoying as hell. I'm sure nogg after a long day at work enjoyed coming home to play with me or some other guy (I'd usually stay in same channel, so I didn't have to toon with him to know what was going on) and then a nerd. And then have the nerd cry about pubbies camping, or arty hitting him in a really obvious place to pre-aim, or how he missed or some shit. here is a list of common nerd phrases -OMG THESE PUBBIES ARE AWFUL AND CAN'T HELP ME (relying on pubbies is a great jingles meme) -OMG ARTY HAS BEEN FOCUSING ME THE ENTIRE MATCH (maybe you should analyze why) -I FUCKING MISSED HIM, BULLSHIT RNG. (because all accuracy should be 0.01M) -I DIDN'T PEN A GOD DAMN LT (because you hit it's tracks) -OMG THIS SHITTER IS PERMATRACKING ME (No shit, some people will play decent) -THIS RETARD IS BLOCKING MY SHOT (what of it?) -OMG THE LOW ROLL! (holy shit do you not realize +-25% damage exists?) -WHY THE HELL ARE OUT PUBBIES CAMPING?! (because minimaps are hard to use to see where you need to go) -OH FOR FUCKS SAKE MATCHMAKING (okay well GL, as long as I get my damage idc if we lose due to MM) I tooned with a nerd today and had a sub 2k wn8 session on one of my friend's accounts, I started being a nerd aswell and raged a bit too and played like trash. If you have a problem with any part of the game even including arty it is of my belief there are ways to end it being a problem or minimize it. Ever since I've been analyzing every part of my game, my blood pressure has been healthier, but today I was a nerd and I was stressed. Perhaps we should all analyze why things are as they are, and end nerdism. Obligatory Animeme

To get back to us reply to this thread, or PM me either in-game or on the forums
  20. http://wotreplays.com/uploader/JackQueRudo/id/360555 http://wotreplays.com/site/765261#severogorsk-jackquerudo-t110e5 Perhaps will update once in a while when I'm not dying from pubbie aneurysm
  21. So today we had a landing battle at the same time as this one, so the players not picked for the primary one jumped into this one. This is what happened: http://wotreplays.eu/site/1414688#airfield-charcharo-e-100 (You may want to jump until the 5:30-5:00 mark or so). So our team completely slaughtered them at first sight, being only 6 tanks they put up a damn good fight, until the numbers overwhelmed them. I jumped on their TS-channel when our battle finished, and it was at the same time this happened. Everyone really had fun and it was a side to competitive play I really haven't experienced before, they didn't win, it wasn't really close in the end - but they left pretty goddamn satisfied. It also proved to me that strategy is what conquers this game, numbers aren't everything, even when the odds are against you from the very start. This is by no means meant to shit on the clan they faced, more of a reminder of how fun this game can be, outside of the rage-filled pubbie environment.
  22. I'm going to start playing on my EU account again, which means derping around in the Churchill III. Probably on weekends between 6 and 9 PM GMT. I can't make any promises about how much I'll play but some T95E2 XP is better than none, right? If you want to play pref. MM tier 5 tanks, or regular tier 4s with my Chruchill, and earn some XP towards your T95E2 here's your chance. Post in this thread before 6 PM GMT on the 10th of December if you're interested and on EU. I'll run an RNG after assigning each poster a number and let chance decide who gets the reinvite.
  23. Edit: Not necessarily after CW clan atm, will be happy in a cool highly active social clan. Hi I have recently returned from a 3-4 month sojourn to the NA server. Interested in joining an Aus based Social or maybe CW clan. Playtimes are pretty much whenever I am not asleep or doing something more important. Ideally, mostly Aus players, will tolerate the occasional kiwi (j/k kiwis are cool). Prefer to play with adults where possible, didn't say mature, just adult Have headset and mic and can use the any of the standard voice comm programs. Noobmeter Wotlabs Tanks in garage. T110E5 Obj 140 M60 Unlocked but not purchased IS-7 Working towards (at tier 8 or higher) IS-4 (on ST-I) E-100 (E75 unlocked) + Numerous others from T1 onwards.

    Driving and WOT

    So today is the one year anniversary of the day that I got my drivers license. yay. Anyway. something happened today that made me think about the rage one has in traffic compared to the rage in WOT While I was driving home with a few friends from a Cross Country meet today when I came to a red light. I was behind another car, second in line. After the red light turned to Green, we waited a good 5 seconds before realizing that the scumbag driver in front of me was fucking texting on her phone. Goddamn, I honked that horn so much. It felt great too, seeing her jump a little in her seat and finally acknowledging the green light before finally driving off. I said to my friends, "Look at this bitch, she needs to learn how to fucking drive". Then I realize, holy shit, that's exactly what I said in a game of WOT yesterday. Then I begin to think of the similarities of all the rage that one feels driving on the street and traffic, and the rage one feels when a light tanks rear ends you and you end up with the repair bill. I also realized that like WOT, the more I drive, the more jaded I become and the less I rage realizing that its just not worth it. Hopefully I'm not the only one that feels this way. Am I? Then I realize, the very same shitty tank drivers in WOT are the very same drivers that I wait for at an intersection. P.S. Is it just me? or is my signature simply not showing up anymore?
