  1. I just want to share some mindsets of unicum players, because the gameplay and your knowledge of the game itself is not everything to play at unicum level. I am not overall unicum but recently I have many sessions of 3K WN8. 1) The most important is to keep calm and relaxed even after a very bad battle (wrong tank on wrong map, arty focus or something), just remember what mistakes you have done and try to remember it so you want play like that next time you get the map again, do not try hard next battle after the bad one, play as usual, dont overextend or dont rage, dont try to hunt the damage too agresively. Because once you get your frustration to the certain level you wont be thinking clearly and you will make stupid mistakes you would not made if you were calm. 2) If you cannot handle your frustration then make a break or find someone to play in platoon (with or without comm does not really matter) but the gameplay will change if you play in platoon you can be sure you got someone watching your back, usualy playing in platoon with another decent player will make your winrate higher so that can calm you down a little bit. 3) Many people dont think about this one, but if you are frustrated have you ever thought about taking a tank with pin-point accuraccy ? This will certainly descrese your frustration as you will hit more shots, you will hit more shots exactly where you want to. I recommend Centurion AX, E50, E50M or generally any tank with good aim time and accuracy and dispersion values. 4) If you are just looking to improve your WN8 play tanks that you like and play those on which you have a decent crew. I find that today the most enjoyable tier is tier IX because of the matchmaking. 5) Another tip that significantly increased my WN8 is that I stopped using session statistics because if you have bad start the green or blue values get you frustrated even more. 6) Many people think that once they will get 100% concentrated into the game they will improve, that is only a half-true, try harding sometimes wont help you. Sometimes it is just better to play your favorite music and dont even listen the game sounds which might be annoying after playing higher number of battles in a row (sound of broken engine, received shots...) thus increasing your frustration. Tell me what you thing about these points and if you are unicum if you have any more mindset tips I can add them to the list EDIT: I did not created this topic for stat-padders, of course you can always do that, but I created this topic to help all those people who are getting mad about losing strikes or just getting frustrated. This topic is for people who want to enjoy the game more, because once I started to realize from where my frustration from this game comes from I started to enjoy the game much more and my stats reflected it as well.
  2. Hey everyone! For those who don't know me: I used to be pretty good at this game, playing in WGLEU for a bit, got 3 marks on most of my t10s and was main FC in OMNI, for a long time top 2 EU clan. Nowadays I am a bit less active and my play (mainly aim :P) is worse, and OMNI dropped off a bit but remains a topclan. I stream: Skirmishes (T10/T8 maybe), SH wars, solo randoms, platoons, etc. Activity varies: genghiswolves - Twitch On youtube I upload CW videos, awesome random replays (commented), sh war replays (some skimirshes), guides and recently a warleading guide. Over 500 videos total, checking out the older ones may really be worth too (when both I and OMNI were at our peak :D). But new videos have more effort putin so yeah Feedback very very welcome by the way! https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC2ZDlC6oi8t21oqRzWdHMhg [Currently uploading daily] You can also find me on facebook https://www.facebook.com/genghiswolvesOMNI/ and twitter Melvin Wolf (@genghiswolf) | Twitter Oh, and if you want to donate to motivate me to stream/youtube more, link in stream description Anyway, ready to answer any questions and might post some updates here (any rule on pushing?). Used to be really active here 2-3 years ago, not so much since. Thanks for the featuring btw.!

  4. Hey everyone. I'm assuming quite a few people here kinda know me, or at least have seen me around before. I've been messing around on this forums since April??? I think, and have loved every second of it. You guys are all such a great community, and have been so encouraging to me. I recently just hit unicum recent, and I would like to thank everyone here for the advice and support you have given me. the road from 2k recent to unicum has been tough, as it has a required a big shift in thinking, as i try to seek ways to outplay my opponents and win the match. The advice you guys have given me, whether it be direct, aimed at someone else, or in an article or post like that, have been hugely helpful. through it i was able to transfer my low tier game-play up into high tiers, then improve on my low tier game-play, and transfer it again. I doubt i would have 1 marked the e75 beforehand, let alone 2 marked (I'm still bad so no 3 mark) without the advice on brawling, positioning, and trading you guys have provided everyone with. I wouldn't have 3 marked the cromwell without all the micro-positioning spots, flexing advice, vision abuse advice, and camo abuse advice, and i have a better understanding of how prem ammo should be used. I also play arty a lot less too now garryallen http://imgur.com/a/UIzhj P.S. I am pretty sure this is in the wrong place, so i dumped it here, hoping someone knows where the heck to put it. PLS HALP P.P.S Still gotta hit that 60% solo recent w/r.
  5. I've noticed something about Obsidian's Armored Warfare (a 50's to present, arena-based pvp (& pve) tank game) which happens to run on a modern CryEngine 3 architecture. (currently awaiting a closed beta; no mention of an alpha yet, either) Baddies, Dunning-Kruger-personified types, are repeating all the fallacies and hilarious talking points there. Already shaping the forums in a negative manner. http://www.noobmeter.com/player/eu/Sunpawz/516739482/ http://www.noobmeter.com/player/na/Sunpawz/1001344847/ Note: he makes allusions to also owning accounts (presumably under a different name) in both Asia and RU. With "over 30K battles" http://aw.my.com/forum/index.php?page=Thread&postID=11207#post11207 Note the thread title: Do -not- add artillery Best Gems: I live in reality, unlike you apparently. You noobs // author's note: he's (of the %49-50 above) calling this a noob: ruin games. If there were to be "opt out of games with artillery" there would also be "opt out of games with TD, LT, MT, HT" as well. Only the worst developer on the face of the planet would ruin their own game like that. Stats =/= skill. "I readily admit I'm only slightly above average" That is what egotistical people do. Also, I do not have an ego, unlike you, Mr. Troll. Here he fundamentally proves his misunderstanding of RNG: http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:cC6kNlPpnP0J:aw.my.com/forum/index.php%3Fpage%3DThread%26threadID%3D120%26pageNo%3D21+&cd=1&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=us Note the thread title: "Learn from Wargaming's mistakes" Note: this is a cached link cause he got this thread locked through shitposting. ================================ I find it amusing NA WoT forums shittier denizens are going to make Armored Warfare a shitty, stat-denying culture, guaranteed to fracture. I look forward to a new farm for tears. (seriously, this guy is deluded out of his mind) The strange thing is he doesn't even pollute WoT forums. Just AW's forums, despite posting the same exact crap you would expect from WoT's forums. It's surreal.
  6. o7o7 Friends, Tomorrow (19/03/2016) at 12:30 AEST/10:30 ASIA server time I will be beginning my 24 hr stream (I do need to eat at some point tho,) and you are all encouraged to come watch. Be it entertainment, learning or free golds that convince you to come, I hope you will stick around for awhile and follow the stream (followers win gold, if you don't follow you don't win.) I will be giving away 3x3000 gold randomly throughout the 24 hours and 5000 gold to one lucky winner right at the end of 24hours. 14000 gold total!!! (NA and EU too!) What do you need to do?

Watch the stream whenever and for however long you want as the giveaways will be random except for the final one. Be entertained and perhaps even learn something! Feel free to ask questions or just chat, anything to keep me going other than Redbull and pizza is much appreciated! I will primarily be playing tier 9's and 10's as I am bad at everything else. Featured on the stream (maybe) will be _Iron, Bolagnaise, TE_Skell, TE_Saffee, K4izerr and many more.

  7. This is going to be my official replay thread, the one and only. Some info about me in WoT and why watch my replays. I'm currently one of the best players on EU. Recent avg exp, dmg, WN8, WN7, PR and Efficiency you name it. I play all of my games solo, with encounter and assault enabled to bring some variability to the map pool. I play mostly T10 mediums and replays I'm going to upload will be about T10 most of the time. I like to play tanks that are fast and thus have a chance to make the maximum impact to the game. I don't play arty or td's, f*** clickers. My garage: T10: Leo 1, STB-1, Obj 140, T-62A, M60, E50-M, BatChat, T110E5, IS7, AMX50B, AMX 30 T9: M46 Patton T8: Type 59, FCM 50t, IS3 Those are the tanks I play, some I play more often than others. From heavys I play mostly E5 and I like all of my T10 mediums except BatChat. M46 is probably my favorite tank. My favorite heavy is E5 and Type 59 are FCM are just for money making. I do have a bad habit of typing bad words in to the in-game chat so keep that in mind. Also the occasional tk's will spice some games as well. Tank setups: T-62A / Obj.140: Leo 1: E50M: STB-1: T110E5: BatChat 25t: AMX 30 prot: M46 Patton: Type 59: Mods: Aslain's XVM (I've edited it a lot, mostly removed lots of irrelevant stuff and no xvm-stats.) Locastan's session stats Custom avatar_input_handler (Zoom-out mod basically) Hardware: Windows 7 i7 4790K OC at 4700 MHz GTX 770 OC 8,00 Gt RAM WoT on a 120GB SSD Gaming Monitor: ASUS VG278HE 1920x1080 27'' 144 Hz Second Monitor: old Samsung, 20'' 60 Hz Mouse: Mionix Avior 8200 Keyboard: Microsoft Sidewinder x4
  8. I'm an Old Lord from the great Kingdom that accomplished much in his homeland with added frustration so much so that the only thing I could do was to go out in conquest after the third great war to find new land and new opportunities I've returned................ to finished what I started. Who Will answer my Call "Come Forth "Honorable" Knights there is still Glory to be Had" Knights with talents of wn8 2200+ Overall and wn8 3.5k+ Recent Are needed!! Some knights below the requirement still might be accepted depending on their willingness to learn. When will my lord need my services? 8am-1pm (PST) on Some weekdays and weekends(which I rarely participate in) Rest around the same time most play. What Armor will my lord expect me to Equip? The Armor we will use will mostly be tier 8+ Mostly tier 10's What Weapons will my lord expect me to Wield? Depends on your fighting style I'm fine with you being A Medium Knight(you must be very Great at being a medium Knight). But, Mostly I'm looking for Great And Renowned Heavy Knights Known To Face Dragons Head On and Live to Tell the Tale. What About payment my lord what shall we expect to Receive? I can offer my wisdom for those from my era who have long since past and those that remain are few and withering, young knights can still be taught the old ways! Teaching this new era of knights the old ways will be my occupation until I am taken away or unable to wield a sword or put on armor due to my age........ Become the Future Become Great Platoon with Old "fart" Lord Today!
  9. Requirements: Wn8 2k+ Overall ​​Wn8 Recent 2.8k+ (non padded) I play mostly 8+ sometimes 7s Good tier 10s and Stats Teamspeak and Mic Good sense of Teamwork​​ Knows how to share hp in Brawling Situations ​Can Communicate throughout the match what you're doing where you're going etc I play on both west/east depending on the tier I'm playing or mood Rules: 1. You can Rage! But, Complaining about RNG/Teams etc the whole fucking game is useless and doesn't help you so....shut the fuck up! 2. Oh look Smylee sent me an Invite! But, I've Been having a bad day eh whatever I'll just let him carry me.....Fuck off!!! 3. Don't play tanks you hate with me!! I only do that to my Best Friends and they even get pissed at me so what you think I'm gonna say to you? 4. No Leopard 1s in my platoon everyone sucks in it and doesn't know how to play it at all... 5. No TDs unless your really good in them and when I mean really good I mean like Jonnytdk Waffle good.... 6. Play Tanks for the Win not for wn8 if you win enough your stats will come trust me. Why did you post this? Because A lot of Friends I used to play with for years are finally putting this game to rest so I'm in need of players that are active and play for the same reasons I do. The thing is I'd like to think of myself as a nice guy that just hates the things listed above which makes me irritated and pissed. So instead of explaining it every single time someone does something wrong in my platoon why not just put it up for all to see so I stop losing games because of these issues. Who is (SmyleeRage)? I'm probably the weirdest person you will meet on tanks I do voices, I laugh like a psychopath and sometimes Rage like one as well. I Talk a lot like fucking lots like sometimes so much I don't even know when I'm breathing. I'm a mutt mostly black and white. After you have played with me for a while you will wonder how I'm good at this game because I'm kind of a dumbass most of the time. One thing I know people will vouch for is once you're in my platoon you will have a great time cause when i'm happy I'm a funny nigga And when I'm pissed I'm still a funny nigga. Well How do I sign up for This Adventure? Meet the requirements etc Post below I'll add you too my friends list and eventually will invite you I don't join platoons So don't invite me. P.S. I'm so fucking high right now....
  10. Hello friends! I am opening this Q&A thread as part of a number of improvements for my stream, celebrating my recently-earned partnership with Twitch.tv. I figure this forum is a good place for this thread, as individuals in this community seem to enjoy the sharing of knowledge. A little introduction for those who do not know me... I joined [-G-] in July of 2013, and have been active in World of Tanks since that time. I have league experience in WGLNA seasons 1 & 5, and Classic season 2. I create, maintain, and make available my own modpack, and run a twitch stream primarily for World of Tanks. I have been streaming since June of 2014. Modpack My modpack is primarily an aesthetic alteration of the game, built on XVM and PMOD, focusing on color-schemes primarily. It makes things more...well...blue. It is minimalist and clean, intended for long-term use. Twitch Stream My twitch stream is primarily for educating the populace on how to improve their tanking skills. I enjoy socializing with my viewers, fielding questions, and listening to music any audiophile would love. Now that is out of the way, I am happy to answer any questions you folks may have for me. Please try to keep modpack troubleshooting to the thread linked above, if possible. Thanks!
  11. Introduction Hello and before anyone can get mad or offended and so on please hear me out? As someone who is working on becoming a game developer someday I try to understand why and how some updates, marketing strategies, and overall mechanics effect how player bases react. So in this forum I like to kindly request that all information be backed up with a reasonable argument. We all want this game to do well and we all are responsible for helping its staff by providing accurate feedback. As such I have spent time looking over forums discussing with all different level of skill players and clans on team speak and so on. Illegal mods As many players know who have been playing for a decent amount of time, know all about War Gaming's stance on how illegal mods are handled. This involves mods such as Grox pack and the famous War Pack. While this is as far as the player base that this effects the mod has easily got to be new players who understand basic game play but don't understand advanced game mechanics. This comes out to I’d be willing to wager to say 80%~ of the total north American player base information is from WoT labs. This is not a bad thing but cannot be overlooked. As such it has caused some players who don't understand to quit the game / rage uninstalling. A simple idea at least worth looking into is > Ways WG can fix this issue step one you know that magical thing known as a python log? Well it is a file in the wot client that checks if your running mods and a few other things as well. How can this be used? Have a program that before allowing any mod to be used it checks with the servers list of banned mod descriptions and looks for code in a mod that would affect the said parameter. This is pretty much a simple way of at least heavily hindering the ease of using illegal mods. And all legit mod creators can if their mod is denied access by the program to submit their mod to an official moderated forum were a (very small) team of WG staff can look them over to see if it passes the test if it is legit and legal it would have an exception thrown in the code to allow this mod although this would have to be done every patch for mods that are legal but don't pass the bot. Game mechanics As many higher than average players improve they start to come under what many call XVM sniping. As some of you may know XVM is a mod that tells according to a community created skill equation to all players who have it showing them the most proficient player on each team. This can create a very toxic environment as this also can show an estimated "win chance" according to the skill level of each team. Leading to people saying and doing things such as "oh this match is a loss" and or drowning them-self or disconnecting. This is also many new players when they look at mods for the first time. This is a bit of a sub issue but many players of a higher skill level that I have talked to would love an option to hide their stats (like how Press accounts do). In any case XVM as said above is no good for anyone creating a hierarchy based on a number. As for XVM sniping itself it's when people with high WN8 (the number used in XVM) get typically when SPG players focus them the entire match is a huge contributor to why experienced players in general despise SPGs and I will go into that later. SPG Mechanics Self-propelled guns as they are in WoT are an extremely big issue in terms of source of player rage lack of immersion and in general considered an “easy class.” Now why is that the case why does it induce so much rage? Well the reason for it is not something that can be just found by looking at numbers. Now some people may disagree with me but from the information I have been able to gather the issue lies in the simple fact that: Light Tanks, Medium Tanks, Heavy Tanks, and Tank Destroyers all are incapable of doing anything to stop arty directly, (directly being able to get to and destroy them). Typically players know nearly exactly were the SPG players are but only after being hit or seeing someone else get hit. This most likely is why artillery results in the following: frustration at being helpless, frustration from getting hit for typically 33% of your total hit points and then rare sudden one shot hits. Also worth mentioning that although SPGs were added with the intent of reducing camping as an experiment I have seen thousands of times were players are punished indefinitely more for playing more up front and trying to be more “active”. Then on the reverse players who hide the entire match in fear of getting spotted and slammed by a round that they cannot stop. This has absolutely nothing to do with if an SPG is actually aiming at their current location or if said SPG is loaded or not. The entire concept of “I could be hit” is what seems to drive this mentality. That said this entire argument can be proven invalid if example player teams SPG player knows how to counter battery and drops it early in the match, simple problem is most SPG players have no clue how or don’t want to as is not very rewarding and anyone who is remotely intelligent in a SPG moves right after they fire to avoid counter battery or the shot fails to connect even if they don’t move. Some possibly ways that this could be fixed in my personal opinion is an increase to splash decrease in shell penetration and something like a warning when a SPG is aiming in the square players are currently in like a red square appearing in the map? This would help people be more aware of the map itself as well. CLAN WARS 2.0 Disclaimer: I am not nearly as well informed of how clan wars 2.0 works so take all with a grain of salt Alright I have seen and hear a great many things and although I am personally moderately ok with how clan wars 2.0 works I can see how players especially the ones with jobs or school (this is most players) feel about this. First off many have complained how much skirmish grinding it takes to stay on the tier 10 map this is mostly on how far players are committed to playing said skirmishes and being basically forced to play is not helping. Solution? Possibly make it so each provenance makes the same amount in relation to the amount of influence and industrial resource needed. And as an incentive have a modifier to give let’s say X% more given to tier 8 compared to tier 6 and so on. Also landing zones are an issue but I’ll leave that up to someone who knows more about it. Link to the official discussion on the normal WoT forums doing very well http://forum.worldoftanks.com/index.php?showtopic=476890
  12. Hey guys, Since I've been playing Bat.Chat. a lot these days, and I find it quite enjoyable and capable tank (when I don't play like shitlord ). However, I've been searching a bit, but there isn't any consensus of proper and best loadout for pub games. There is dilemma of are optics worth it(vision based meta is gone, but tank is still capable of spotting?), GLD(gun is lacking in aim time department), vents(overall boost to tank). To complicate stuff more, ammo capacity is limited so some people don't carry HEAT, some like one clip, other people run two clips. Also, there is thing with coffee, since Bat.Chat. has frontal engine but I doubt that's worthy argument over boost coffee offers. So, here is my loadout and stats with Bat.Chat.: I think next batch of skills for crew should be situational awareness for commander, designated target for gunner and clutch braking for driver. Now I'm thinking this is cost/performance very effective but I'm thinking I should switch out optics for vents and perhaps run full time coffee. Perhaps 1 more clip of HEAT(I'm not running out of APCR as it stands right now, and I like that but HEAT does it better when situation is sticky.)? So I'm asking you guys - should I change anything to preform better and what would be most ideal loadout for randoms?
  13. SUMMER 2015 UPDATE: I am now streaming. Find me on http://www.twitch.tv/mholding most days of the week :3 I thought I would create a specific thread for my YouTube channel in order to shamelessly promote show how to play certain tanks. I try to upload videos 2-3 times a week, but it depends on what games I have myself as I dont want to just upload videos for the sake of uploading them. I mainly play mediums and light tanks so that is what you will see me play. Throughout the videos I try to explain my thought process the best I can. Feedback on both gameplay and videos are more than welcome. Before you mention it, I have just bought a new microphone/headset that should allow me to improve the clarity and quality of the commentary audio. Here are some of my own personal favourites of the newer videos that I think highlight what my channel is about. If you like it go check my youtube channel out for more World of Tanks videos: World of tanks funtage - a video I made back when I was in QSF-E. Just made it for shits and giggles and it is inspired by the RNG-videos. Artillery rant - me ranting about why artillery is stupid. I get shot down from full health to no health in 2 seconds by three different artillery pieces who aren't even platooned. gg. Beating the odds twice - How to carry a 22%-team in an FCM 50t and how to carry a similarly bad team in a Tiger II (on the same map even). My first pools medal that happen to coincide with a Kolobanovs and Fadins medal and a stupidly high amount of RNG-luck in the end. Fadins medal in BatChat 25t - I get a fadins medal and where I use the mobility of the BatChat to have a good game Link to my youtube-channel (a lot of other videos though): https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCky3AnLXGSQcr8p6wvV10PA Link to my World of tanks playlist: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLGcpk7WlCgnhvj3_kNC42BPRvlnhacF7c
  14. When I read the official WoT forums, WoT sub-Reddit, and WoTLabs forums, one question comes up more than any other: how do I improve my gameplay? This is particularly challenging for players who have hit a ceiling in terms of their measurable performance (e.g. win rate, WN8 rating, etc) and are not sure what to do. While players can download replays of highly-skilled players, those replays don't capture the thinking process of the player behind the tank - you see their actions but don't necessarily know the how's or why's behind them.Therefore, in this video series I share what I learned as I progressed towards account Unicum rating (top 1%) with silver ammo only. I talk through how I’m reading the battle as it unfolds and discuss key decisions and mistakes. My hope is that these videos meaningfully help other players improve their gameplay.

Stat line: Ace Tanker, 5.5k damage, 3 kills, 2 spots, 1.2k assisted damage As demonstrated in the video, the E50 has a highly accurate gun, and the solid hull armor can be angled to deflect incoming fire. I discuss the importance of flexing to prevent a flank from collapsing and the arguments against capping too early instead of pressing an advantage.

  17. Some people say that there is a right way, and a wrong way to progress up the tech tree. I am going to tell you my way, and why I do it as such. If you take a look at your crew you will notice that after each battle you partake in, they gain a little bit of experience. The more battles you put them in, the more experience they get. Simple right? I have friends who plow their way through the tech tree. Sure they get to the higher tiers faster... but their crew remained relatively untrained and the player him/herself may not know how to play their tank to the fullest potential. What I believe is the most efficient way (if you want to have a good PR) is to grind your tanks out. This may not necessarily mean that once you have researched everything for one tank you move on to the next. Take a look at my tanks for example. You will notice that I progressed up the light tanks to the Chaffee and stopped... the reason being is that I plan to use the free experience I earn from the Chaffee to unlock the Hellcat. By doing this, I allow my tank crew to gain a ton more experience and I get more personal time learning on how to drive the tank effectively. In my head, I have certain milestone to progress up. My current ones are: Hellcat, Cromwell, FV304, Chaffee Why these tanks? For the personal missions of course! By using this system, I can maximize my potential by focusing on one tank at a time, then using the tanks I'm already skilled at to unlock the other types. These tanks in my opinion (after lost of research and community input) are the best tanks to play for the road to Unicum. Obviously I have a long way to go, but I believe after I unlock the Hellcat, my grinding will be faster since I can focus more on what I'm shooting at as apposed to trying not to hit a stupid rock. Well that is my take on researching and gaining combat experience. I would love to hear your input on what you do, why, and if you think you should have done things differently. I appreciate you guys partaking on this quick read. Good Luck, Have Fun Die Spectacularly
  18. I'm a dark green tank player looking to reach light purple (I think I can achieve dark blue myself, already at the far end of light blue). I have a large variety of tanks with varying attributes and I believe I can improve in every tank class, notably my sniper TDs. My tanks/lines I'm grinding Tiger 2 - going to E-100 - priorityRhoomba - going nowhere, waiting to see the (hopefully) better tier XCenturion 1 - going to 4202 - low priority (but love the cent 1)ARL 44 - going to 50 B - priorityM12 - going to M53/55 - who the hell plays the T92?M41 Bulldoge - going nowhere, torn over if I should pursue the T57 grind.So yeah. PM if you're willing to mentor. I'm not going to pay for tutoring, sorry, should've mentioned that at the beginning.
  19. Okay... So obviously per my stats below the ravishing Bruce Campbell photo, I am just barely bordering on unicum recent and a simple teal overall. I'm really trying to reach uni recent, as it's been on my goal list for a long time. Lately I've hit a huge bump in the road and progress has started to go in reverse (high point this week was at 62% and 2405). I think my main problem is the consistency of which I do things match to match. I'm really struggling to find that balance between aggressiveness and passiveness. I think another issue with me is being consistent in getting to key locations on the map and making something happen when I actually get there. For example, when I'm playing my E5 I find myself getting too aggressive and not realizing it until I'm almost alone and then get derped. Or when I'm playing my 140 I'll either lead in without support hoping to get pubs to make a play, or play too passively when my team needs me. I value myself a TD-player born again into a medium player. I love flexing, flanking, and being on the move in general, but also love sniping when opportunity presents, both of which present problems when I play city maps. I think some tips from guys that have broken this barrier either naturally or with a fight will help me push over it myself. I wanna become a better player and I really do believe my potential far exceeds 2300 wn8... I just seem to have hit a skill wall these past few days.
  20. Hello wot-labs, unicums, and forum lurkers. I am an average WoT player (1650-1800 recent) and I'm looking to escape my mediocrity and blossom into a young little blunicum. If someone want's to help my with my journey I'd be deeply appreciative and might reward you with something given the circumstances and length of the mentor-ship. I have established a lengthy list of habits, both good and bad in this game. I'm seeking to find someone to scold me like a bad dog when I do wrong, or encourage me when I am doing right. I have a good understanding of the game mechanics, penetration, shells, various tanks, where to aim, what to do, etc... I know I make mistakes, usually positioning, timing, and learning when to push my luck, and when to back off and find a new position. I would shine light on my issues but the problem is they aren't glaring, I just make a lot of smaller mistakes that lead up to not breaking the plateau of blue. I'm not looking to become perfect, as no one is. I'm just seeking a nice instruction on my gameplay, so that I may take that instruction and develop from it on-wards. I routinely watch WoT on twitch.tv and read many articles, study armor diagrams, vision mechanics.. finding those places you can just see enemies at the edge of your bounding box.. I don't want to drone on for too long here but if you're down to the task of taking me under you wing for a few days, or longer perhaps depending on how well we interact; here I am.

  21. So I used to play this game a lot, but I had no idea stats existed. After about 3.5k battles I got bored and stopped playing. I went pro in Insurgency and got Global in CSGO. After that I needed a new game. After spending sometime looking for a new game I decided to come back to this game. My win8 upon return was like 1480 or somthing. First few days I averaged 2k win8 but now consistently hit 3k+ every battle. HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE ME TO HIT UNICUM?! I'm about 1550 win8 with 4k battles. Anyone got an estimate for me? &gt;:| Also Hello Everybody!!! I look forward to playing with and against all of you! P.S. I've been back for less than a week.
  22. Apparently I'm cool enough for this now \/ Here I shall put my replays, when I remember to. Please also use this thread as a Q and A if you've ever wanted to ask me things like why apple pie is the best, how to get all the girls as a 4000lb marine mammal, or maybe even tanks related stuff once in a while. FAQ: Why are you so bad at tanks? Because keyboards are not designed with flippers in mind. How do you play tanks with flippers? Badly Taylor Swift or Katy Perry? Leanna Decker <3 What is the best medium? Object 140 What is the best tank in the game? Leopard 1 How do I IS-7? Hulldown, sidescrape, shoot enough APCR to flood yurop with tears, and hug people with your face. Here's some 9.6 replays, I was at 98% MoE after this. Games shown are with the above setup, although I changed to more APCR a few games in. http://www.mediafire.com/download/uft2h69th98a8tt/IS-7_5_games.zip http://www.mediafire.com/download/rc3hdpx13952ytl/IS-7_6_games.zip
  23. Me and Invade Starting Talking originally discussing Anime and then from there To what is happening in Baltimore and how there isn't real news anymore. So then we discussed how vice news shows real news and then we talked about historical wars which Lead us to WWII and eventually "Sydney Valpy Radley-Walters" was brought up when we realized he Had died a little over a week and a half ago and World of tanks had nothing posted about An Amazing man such as him dying at the Age of 95 years old I was quite Surprised So Lets Honor Him. In 1942, with Canada in the grip of the Second World War, Captain Sydney Radley-Walters was a young infantry officer who had never seen combat and never seen a tank. But by 1945 he had become the best Canadian front-line tank ace of the war, having destroyed 18 German tanks and been decorated for his gallantry and leadership. Mr. Radley-Walters said one of his generation’s greatest achievements was “the business of Canadians just believing in each other.” He died of pneumonia in Kingston, Ont., on April 21. Military historian Terry Copp said Mr. Radley-Walters, who died this week at the age of 95, emerged from the Normandy battlefields as “the best-known and most respected battlefield commander in the [Royal] Canadian Armoured Corps.” ARTICLE Brigadier-General Sydney Radley-Walters had a simple leadership philosophy: ‘First, look after the soldiers.’
  24. Apparently I have an unpopular opinion on the reddits. I actually watch replays of bad battles to see what I could do better next time. I was told that no other Unicums on NA do that. I that true? Am I the lone ranger in reviewing my game play to get better?
  25. I'm looking for someone to make Some Simple Worded logo's and Twitch Panels for me that take more "Artistic Skill" than I have If you are Interested PM Me for more Details.
