  1. So, the 88mm got dpm buffed. How much? It has 3600dpm (240 alpha 4s reload) compared to the 3000 of the top 105mm (390 alpha 8s reload), assuming max crew %, making it the highest of any T9 medium tank and equaling the Obj 907's. And dear god does it make the tank better. Crunching the raw numbers, here is how the 2 compare in raw damage dealt in constant fire over an engagement duration (nonstop firing): For the 88mm: 1-4s: 240 4-8s: 480 8-12s: 720 12-16s: 960 16-20s: 1200 20-24s: 1440 24-28s: 1680 28-30s: 1920 Versus the 105: 1-8s: 390 8-16s: 780 16-24s: 1170 24-32s: 1560 As you can see, the only points that the 105 has a damage advantage is in single shot, and then between 8-12s. Outside of that the 88mm has a higher damage potential at all times. The 88mm APCR has 261 pen, and the 105 has 270. Imo this difference is inconsequential and plays no major impact on any differences. The 88 also has .01 better acc value, but is also too small to really notice. Dispersion values are equal between guns. Now the important bit of all of this is how the dynamic of the tank changes. Because of the higher dpm, you are able to be much more aggressive and much more willing to fling random shots off. If a shell misses, who cares? In 4s there will be another one. This doesn't equate to being less careful with shots, but does help reduce RNG-induced salt. In regards to the playstyle, the E50 gains more of a true medium role rather than the heavium blend it was before. Flanks are much more effective because you are able to constantly shoot at targets, trading shots 1:1 becomes less ideal, but trading 1:2, 1:3, or even 1:4 becomes possible because of how fast you can load shells. It rewards a more aggressive playstyle because the more often you are firing the more effective that DPM becomes. Here are 11 games, 11 wins, with 4000 avg dpg in the session. http://www.mediafire.com/file/3b7l7le8amp7avd/2.25+E50+Session.rar Interesting note, the APCR shell for the 105 costs 4000 credits. The APCR round for the 88mm costs 4400 credits. Because WG logic. This also means I lost an avg of 60k credits per match, with the max being -111k. Do not plan to spam games in this without some serious credit farm. Final thoughts: The depression buff was nice but really unneeded. It simply made the tank more comfortable to play. However after the gun buff I find a very hard time trying to justify using the 105mm at all. The tank is seriously better, and due to the 4s reload you are frequently able to get 2 shots into tanks that the 105 would have been unable to. 50 extra damage at regular intervals through a match really stack up. E50 is definately #1 T9 in game.
  2. Well since the user group changes I guess I qualify as being a purple poaster now, so I might as well get one of these started and focus my replay thread on more srs bznss. Ask me stuff about tanks, ponis, other games I play, work (working for Amazon atm), or important life questions that I have noideahowtoanswerbutwilltryandmakeupananswerthatseemslegit, or anything else that might strike your fancy. #1 Poni Luna: #2 Poni Celestia (Yes I am the one who made ) (the last time I did this it turned out horribly, lets try and make it better!)
  3. LSS, I am currently using an iPhone 5 and am eligible for the typical 2 year upgrade discount through AT&T come next month. I am wondering if I should upgrade now (and what I should get), or if I should just hold on to this one until something mind-blowing comes out (and reduces prices of current gen smartphones). Things I use my phone for regularly: Web browsing, Youtube, listening to podcasts. (must haves) Occasional usage: social media (facebook/snapchat), games (hearthstone), Slack for clan communication. (Prefer to have) My music library is tiny (only some legal TS stuff and then a couple of torrented albums). Stuff I want from new phone: Bigger battery (I5 has ~1400mah, I have chargers at home and in car but it would be nice to not have to recharge at all during the day), better screen size/resolution (I5 is 4" diag and 1136x640). I have 0 preference between Apple vs Andriod, I'm looking for something that fits my requirements. If a better product exists for the same price then I will learn the new OS. So, is there anything out there that works? I'm kind of looking at the 6S Plus due to battery/screen upgrades plus a brand new chipset. I don't mind having a massive phone since I do a lot of media intake on it and not much else. (I'm fine with spending the $300 on it if it fits what I want).
  4. Hellow yuros. If anyone has ideas for a semi-competitive T6/8 stronghold clan that would accept a fail-reroll, feel free to post names. I can show for early times, from around 1-5PM GMT daily. Have T6 (vk3601h) and T8 (p88/T54P) tanks, just looking for some better methods of grinding and some $ bonuses. Stats down below, I r potato.
  5. So in the interest in finding some less dead timezones to play in, I am joining the yuro's. Playing ~1pm to 3pm GMT on weekdays, then ~4am to 5pm GMT on weekends. Currently at T2 3 4, so pls be ok with low tier shit till I get gud stuffs. Going for E-50M (mostly for the E-50, going for higher than 3.7k dpg on the server). Acc is here (will update after the battles I play get registered and stuffs). Siemka! edit: i got a panth 88 for crew training/credits, so I can also do that whenever.
  6. Ask, and ye shall receive. Here's my thread for all of my non-potato games I am proud to share.

  7. Every game it seems like now on this map there are 2-5 mediums that decide to go north instead of hill, most including players I would at least deem acceptable in regards to skill. Used to be a couple of noob TDs/HTs, but now its a full on flank. Did I miss a shift? I still view north as total shit because you can get sniped from hill and mid while only having some rocks and almost no bushes as cover. But it is becoming so popular that I can't help but wonder if I am missing out on something important...
  8. Greetings, everyone! Just another shitter here trying to improve his gameplay, and I find it easier to do while also in a social environment. I offer you my WR stat camo services for free!
  9. Edit: price reduced for quick sale! Hi tech peeps. I'm gonna ask here first since I'd rather to sell it to someone cool rather than a random stranger online. So as some of you may know, I upgraded my PC a couple months ago. Before doing enough research, ended up buying an R9 280. Turns out it isn't as much as I was hoping for, so I then upgraded to a 970 (regrets are still had, 390 is apparently better, But oh well, I plan on SLI'ing in the future anyways). Tl;dr: Selling (slightly) used Sapphire 280, still in excellent condition (no OC done), will be shipped to anywhere in the lower 48 US, asking price is $130 (I will cover shipping). These funds will probably go towards me getting a new gaming chair and stop killing my back every weekend on the crappy one I have now. Pics for proof: Sry for using tinypic, imgur is down for some reason. ;; Also ignore the MSI port coverings, I will be sending it in the box that my 970 came in cause I got rid of the 280 one. (The 970 one has a lot more protection though). Link to original card: http://www.amazon.com/Sapphire-Radeon-PCI-Express-Graphics-11230-00-20G/dp/B00IZXOW80
  10. So I initially intended this to be a N/S (a few lines into the convo), but all of a sudden this random scrub gives me feels. (Backstory, at start of match I say "Statistics show that people with an _ in their name play better" as a joke, most pubs found it entertaining. He calls me a padder at the end (yes I was in e50 but that's irrelevant, everyone who is purple is a padder in pubs eyes). MASSIVE WALL OF TEXT (tl;dr not included cause fuck lazy) Like seriously. New goal=get unicum in online personality. RIP my spergs, never4get. (maybe this is just cause its super late or ponies make me a total softie)
  11. So I'm playing a match, getting my typical 60-80 fps I do while off stream. All of a sudden, FPS drops down to 20, and the dynamic effects change thing turns everything down to minimum (similar to my old screenshots) Frames keep dropping, end up bottoming out around 5 fps. I open up my MSI afterburner while in game, apparently I am using the idle (135mhz core/324mhz memory) speeds and under like 24% load? This is compared to normally being ~1300mhz core, 3500mhz memory, and 40% load. Just having my desktop open (windows 10 aero) uses 13%, so why is the game receiving only a fraction of GPU capacity? What the fuck is happening to my game?! Specs:
  12. TIL I'm top 10 NA for treecuts, as taken from here https://stats-sig.eu/web/lumberjack-stats. So since I have this obsessive goal of getting #1 stat in a lot of things, I am dedicating this thread for people to brainstorm ideal tree-falling paths in maps, as well as what would be the best tank for padding. My idea is something that has a high top speed, a reasonable amount of weight to not get bogged down, and enough traverse&hp/ton to be able to have minimal downtime between passes (runs? what are we gonna call driving in a line to cut trees). Seems tanks like Leo 1 are good, due to zoom zoom and camo camo tactics being already part of the playstyle.
  13. So I've been having this issue the past few days. Playing a match, doing nothing abnormal. All of a sudden both my screens go black (like no input), flash once, turn a display black (like the display color), then I see my desktop, yet still here WoT sounds and am technically in the tab. When I try and open it up, just flashes the tab loading black screen but stays displaying desktop. I've done a full reinstall, and it still isn't fixed. According to task manager WoT goes to non-responding, and I have no response from my system about it. I've played hours of other games with no issue. Is it a GPU thing? I have mine OC'd to ~1300 mHz on the core, and haven't had issues with any other games (including heavily modded skyrim). e: Or is it something really weird, unknown, and a pain in the ass?
  14. Wat could I have done. http://wotreplays.com/site/2014270#prokhorovka-nightmare_luna-t-62a
  15. So during work tonight I got to thinking of finally getting some hard numbers behind all of the sperg that arty is known for generating. ie constantly focusing unica, one shots/HE pens, stupid amounts of arty in a match, etc. My idea is to finally start tracking my experience of playing the game how I normally do (aggro with tryhard loadouts) and tracking many factors in every game I play to see what kind of impact arty has on my gameplay. I've started a google drive spreadsheet to track ~100 battles in sets of 10 [edit 1: all t9/10] (play 10 games, then go back and watch each replay to record all data) and see what my results are. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1RgBmxd2fRsmCRQ8PMT4BvTYz3OEQF3fxG388ZrXVEmo/edit?pli=1#gid=0 Depending on if this ends up being really popular or useful, I will be opening it up for pretty much anyone interested provided they can actually input a significant amount of games (maybe at least 50 or so?) I would like to get input from a wide range of colors, from you 4k+ rerolls to you <1k peeps who haven't mastered this stupid game yet. Pls gib feedback/support/anything else you feel like contributing (poni pics give +10 rep on your account ;^))))
  16. So I have finally finished up my new build, and I installed windows on a samsung 850 120GB SSD, and only plan on putting that and maybe WoT. Everything else I want to have go onto my other 1TB hard drive. The issue is that since I installed windows on the SSD, it has that set as the default //C: location path for all incoming downloads and installations. I named the HDD //E:. so is there any way I can change the default location for all incoming files?
