  1. Thoughts on the post 9.17.1 buff on the Centurion 7/1? The most significant change of course has been the top speed buff from 40 kph to 50 kph. And its a refreshing change of pace to not be outpaced by every other medium tank and lag behind some of the heavy tanks. Now I can afford to take more aggressive positions early on (the fact that you can contest the center hill on Mines (replay) within the first minute is a major change), have the option to change position and flank faster than before (prior to that i'd felt committed to whichever lane/flank I was in). The decent p/w of the tank with that speed makes it feel just that bit more reactive and allow it to cover distances faster (as you'll see at replay below) Another perk of being able to go up to 50 kph that most other faster tanks may take for granted is the end game. I've had recent games in the Centurion 7/1 were I could actually pursue and chase down enemy tanks that prior to the speed buff I would never have been able to do so (Example: http://wotreplays.com/site/3418507#siegfried_line-thomchen114-centurion_mk_7_1) Yes, the Centurion still is one of the slowest firing among the 105mm gunned tier IX medium tanks. The slight RoF increase isn't drastic, but from barely 2k to just under 2.2k base DPM is a welcome change. Now if they could just either buff the aim time/gun handling or the turret gun mantlet armor and this tank would be randy dandy (and actually competitive nowadays).
  2. [massive wall of text, had to sit in train long time and f******n spoilers not working] Since the last tier 9 ranking is old a new one, and since I own (and play) 21 of the 29 tier 9`s I think I can judge them fairly well. Another reason is that imo many people under or overrate certain tanks because of play style preferences (I’m sure I will also fall in this trap myself). For this rating two things are important, solo play & platoon play, if your 100% platooning or 100% solo it might differ a bit, I assume that ``you`` play between 1/3 and 2/3 solo and 1/3 and 2/3 platoon. Rating is based pure for ``winpower``, damage and wn8 are thus not important, it’s about winning! In terms of importance: Firepower (inc gun depression, and gun handling / bloom) > Armour > Mobility > Soft stats (camo, view range module dmg). On a number scale it would be 10 > 6 > 5 > 3, the gun is by far the most important mobility and armour are about equal and soft stats don’t matter much. It also means that a tank with a crap gun has to be phenomenal in other aspects to make up for it. As final note, mobility is mostly a ``negative stat``, having good mobility doesn’t make a tank good, but having bad mobility does make a tank bad. The average is 6.4 and not 5.5, since 5.5 would mean the avg tank is a turd, and that’s certainly not that case. Tier 9 contains many strong tanks and is as a whole a very good tier. Also not one tank gets a 10 since not one tank is that good, the only tier 9 tanks which would be a 10 would be tier 9 IS-4, also beta Obj 704 and beta T-54 come close (9-9.5 or perhaps even 10). Lowest rated tank is a 3, even though a 4 can also be justified. The numbers below a 7 are fairly meaningless; I placed the tanks from strong to weak and put numbers behind them so the exact number doesn’t really matter that much down there. I gave for example both Amx-50-120 and Amx-30 a 5, yet Amx-30 is the better tank, but amx-30 is certainly worse as the 6 tanks, while amx-120 is not as crappy as the 4`s. ps: I also included the following buffs in this rating: IS-8 mobility and gun handling buff and JT hp buff to 2100. 10: Beta IS-4 9: E50 & St-1 8.5: T54, E75 & M46 8: WTF-P4, VK-B, T30 & Conqueror 7: M103, Wz-11111111-4, Jagdtiger, Wz-120, Cent mk7, T-10, T54e1, Obj 430 v2 6: Obj 704 & Type 61 5: Foch, Amx-30, Conway & Amx-50-120, 4: Su-122-54, Tortoise, Leopard PTA, Type 4 & T95 3: Lorraine
  3. This was a game from patch 9.15, where i finally Aced my Conqueror, as well as complete HT-8 (T-55A) Enjoy!
  4. Yes, i've seen crazier better results where others have earned a fat ton more credits and EXP. But just bear with me. I'm just a blunicum. I'll see if I can start making weekly videos. I've got a couple more replays saved that I can see some potential with.
  5. So at my current rate I should soon get enough EXP on my AMX 13 90 to unlock my first tier 9 French MT. And I have yet to really decide which one I will go for first. I do plan to get both eventually, but that requires more grinding on the AMX 13 90 after the fact. Some of my assumption on the two choice of French tier 9 MTs Lorr 40t: I've heard some good stuff about, it but a lot of bad stuff about it as well. It's typically French with no armor, and is entirely reliant on its burst damage with the 6-clip 100mm SA47 and what mobility it possesses to get in and out. the tactics involved would be identical to the AMX 13 90, but on a bigger tank. before I went up the French LT line I had my misgivings since up till then I had little experience in autoloader armed tanks, and i'm still by no means a master of it, but i'm warming up to the playstyle AMX 30 this seems to be the most comfortable tank to play since it has the normal tier IX medium tank playstyle, something i'm quite familiar with in the Type 61, Centurion 7/1 and M46 Patton. but being fast like the Leo and faster firing than the Centurion 7/1, lower profile (presumably better camo?) than the Type 61, and ok gun handling. any thoughts/suggestions/advice?

    old topic, almost 1 year old. nobody is gonna see it anyway, so here is a new one. I know I have a clan but the clan is small, and they are all shitters. @vernl I play bad, kinda, 3k wn8 so, make me gud bois Tanks I mostly play are Super Pershing, M48 Patton, T55A and Rudy, IS-6 rarely a bit of IS-7 and T110E4/5, but mostly the 4 first tanks because I want to grind my crew :3 If my platoonm80s want TS, here we gooooooo!

  7. So i want to fill up my platoon spam list with some of you skrebs from EU. <3 If you are at the kinda same skill level as i am (that means being a total idiot) then feel free to post something in this thread. You can expect me to invite you at any given time. Sadly i do not own a mic right now because i broke my old one, because i am a fat turd, so i hope thats not a big problem. Jeeez Con
  8. Just got my conqueror few days ago, and felt pretty good initially with its brilliant gun handling. But now something is really making me struggle about playing this tank, and yes that is SPGs, the scumbags of the battlefield. Whenever I drive the conqueror, theres a dilemma for me: I either go front line and get concentrated by all enemy SPGs (unless theres a waffle on our team and he gets spotted first of course), or I sit back and watch my teamates die one by one(specifically talking about situation where my team is weaker). What is a good strategy to deal with this problem? How do I avoid being concentrated by arties so frequently? Thank you for answering
  9. Soo I'm about to get another tier nine. Currently have a Pershing and a Panther II in the garage, both about halfway up their grind to the nine. This weekend I figured I'd play the Pershing since it has an increased credit modifier, so I'll probably unlock the Patton first. Won't have the cash for it right away though, so there's time to unlock either before I can purchase. Right now I have a clear preference for the Pershing... The Panther II is underwhelming in absolutely every way. But I'm not letting this cloud my judgement, I know what a beast the E50 can be. My style with mediums is mostly to peek-a-boo from advantageous terrain at mid-range as much as I can. When flanking at close range I like to auto-aim a lot. I really appreciate gun depression and the superior ability to abuse hills that comes with it, and I know that the Patton is the clear winner in that category. But the E50 looks like a ton of fun as well with it's good armor. I really like brawling and it seems the E50 would suit me nicely as well so I'm kind of torn between the two. Here are a few questions for players with experience in the two tanks : How well do they respectively do in the current meta? Is the corridor-y nature of the game more favorable to the E50? Are there still a lot of opportunities for the Patton's scouty capabilities? Gun depression or armor? Which is the most desirable characteristic in general?
  10. I'm e-poor at the moment, and need a skirmish team to become e-rich I'm searching for a team that has blue recent or above as an average, and can regularly make it into the region of 5K+ gold I have a T-54 (4 crew skills) and an AMX 13 90 (3 crew skills). I can also reacquire the IS-8, Obj. 704, and Lorraine 40t, with 4 crew skills on the first two and 3 on the 3rd respectively. Available on all days, will give best effort possible. Reporting for duty (and mad goaldz)!
  11. My standard setup for pubbie matches is first aid kit, repair kit and fire extinguisher. Are there any particular Tier 8-10 tanks that purple poasters use a different setup for, such as gas or gold food?
  12. So, I have been playing this tank for about 3 days now and I am asking for any tips on how to drive the tank. It's a hard transition form the amx1390 to the tier 9 fat turd of a medium. Any general tips would be helpful, such as when should I engage an enemy when I should run away, and is it better to snipe at the beginning and swoop in at the end? Should I be scouting in tier 10 battles, etc. (I have the upgraded 100mm gun)
