  1. Hi there, so I have got the Leo and everything is upgraded with just the grind to the Emil to go and I am torn between which of the 2 guns to use: The 7.5 cm or the 10 cm?, I have tried them both and just cant make up my mind so a little help here with the pros and cons of each and what you run on yours? Thanks
  2. All my positions (south/north/west/east) will be based upon the mini-map of the respective screenshot I'm discussing. Excuse me for the bad UI. after patchday, I just took a random modpack so I didn't have the default UI as a result, my screen looks cluttered. Swamp used to be a very...basic map that revolved around sitting in arty cover and camping (because arty prevents camping). Replay if you want to watch me drive around the map: http://wotreplays.com/site/2022119#swamp-koel76-bat_-ch_tillon_25_ http://wotreplays.com/site/2022125#swamp-koel76-t-62a 1st one is more of a quick drive around the map - eventually had to stop because my bot friend started capping. 2nd one I actually spend some more time driving around with another guy. This used to be the old swamp. I've marked the old (usual) gud player deployment (in randoms) in the color of the respective base. The black arrow indicates common retarded pubbie deployment. Center area being retarded is debatable. I feel like WG has made some very solid changes, changes that will make swamp a decent/good map to play. They've also made some changes I dislike, because I "feel" like it has become biased towards the Northern spawn, this might just be because I've not played it in randoms - but I'll update it later once I have. At first I'll go in on the new spawn/bases. North spawn: The first thing you might notice, is the lack of any cover. It seems that WG has eliminated the ability to cap if anyone on the enemy team is still alive and near base. Meanwhile, there's countless of bushes/ditches near this base from which an enemy tank can come back and spot you. Pro tip: Don't cap, ever again. I feel like this was one of the bad changes. There's no longer a way to win a game by fast capping. The new positioning of both spawns give each side a better way to deploy without taking early damage. What did however concerned (lul not really) is the positioning of arty. If you check in screenshot 2, right ahead of me is a river...you can cross that river in any tank without drowning meaning no sitting in base with arty. While roaming around I couldn't find any positions arty could get to fast and stay safe in. In randoms, that'll be a good change because fuck arty. South spawn: Pretty much the same story. River straight ahead can also be crossed by enemy tanks. So if they want to get an arty that's sitting in base, they can. But they'll be spotted long before. Position of interest: 2 tanks can push a batchat or something else up there, only point in doing that is later in the game if the enemy decided to approach the red base (in this screenshot) from the south. SW corner: Each side has an equal chance of taking this position, I believe a short engagement will take place here. There's some cover in the form of a (demolished) castle. Not sure what else to say about this position. It's good that they've removed the camping from this position. the reason you can't really camp here is because the enemy team has an equal chance of getting that position. Although I believe this position is better to obtain for the Northern spawn. By doing this you will have their H7/8 campers/snipers fixated on dealing with you. And if they aren't, you kill them. H8 Area: Not much to this position early game. It's very open and pretty much useless now* Will update later if I utilize this spot in a random. ehind me you can see the friendly base. As I said before: It's very open now. In the second screenshot ahead of me, you'll notice an entrance to this position. Although, under most circumstances that entrance just opens you up to a lot of fire from different directions. Another thing you can see is that the leopard is trying up to get into a position, you can get there if you push 2 tanks up. Once again, not an important position but later in the game it might be useful...just don't count on your pubbies to get you up there. If for example your NE pubbies get rekt and you're in a platoon, you can probably farm some quick damage from this spot. Now the most significant of all, and where most engagements will be happening: The northern part of the map. I really don't know what to say. Each side has one entry. And then there's one more in the middle. I sadly do not have any more screenshots of the northern part. But there's a panorama somewhere from WG, it'll be your usual stalemate - The good thing is: there's arty cover. 2nd picture is one I consider a broken position if it's possible to get up there, from there you can spot any of the tanks they have at F9 without being spotted. It will require 3 tanks to push one up there...obviously, you'd have to win the engagement first to avoid being proxy spotted. Or if they don't send any tanks there, you get it for free. Picture 3 is another position the Northern spawn can use to dig out your campers. Put a light there and you'll have some fun spotting. As you can see, I spotted the leopard and he didn't spot me back until I fired. If you get spotted you're dead. Because there's only an open field to run to... So don't let that happen. Edit: It's a mediocre position, not even worth it ignore. First picture: Entrance 2nd: Position of interest 3rd: Position of interest Miscellaneous picture close to northern base and ridgeline: As you can see - the ridge line has been flattened and there's now some terrain irregularities here. Although, most of the time in a "normal" match there will be no engagements here. One last screenshot of why you probably want to avoid going into swamp: I don't have any other screenshots since I quickly did this on a laptop, if you want to see more - I guess you can just watch my replay or head into a training room yourself. From all of this, I conclude that the Northern spawn gets the better deal in these map changes. PS: If any arty players can tell me where arty would go now, that'd be great. If I play it once, I'll probably include where I think is the best place to go for some farming. Edit: Forgot the minimap
  3. ATTENTION, TALKING ABOUT THE CHANCE OF IT BEING BECAUSE OF AN AIMBOT, NO ONE IS TALKING ABOUT A MOD THAT MAKE ENEMIES AMMORACKS DETONATE My clan had a skirmish against players from [2L4G]... Now, what happened would have been hard even for good players to pull, but for red/orange? Now to the point Basically every shot that hit us was aimed to an ammorack, there were even a lot of shots that hit walls that seemed to be aimed to the position of the module, but with the wall inbetween All my team got a damaged ammorack in the first one/two shot recieved and we got three explosions (7 damaged ammoracks? 3 of which destroyed with successive shots? Really? Patriot shells?) Is it nonsensical luck (or unluck )? Or something else? Should i report them and what's the most effective way to do it? Replays incoming as soon as i get them from my mates (ignore the noobieness pls, it's not the point) Thank you for your cooperation http://wotreplays.com/site/2442783#stats http://wotreplays.com/site/2442785#stats http://wotreplays.com/site/2442911#stats ATTENTION, TALKING ABOUT THE CHANCE OF IT BEING BECAUSE OF AN AIMBOT, NO ONE IS TALKING ABOUT A MOD THAT MAKE ENEMIES AMMORACKS DETONATE
  4. So, I've decided to buy some Fallout stuff, specifically one of two bags. I'm buying one of them for myself for college use next year, but I can't decide which one I want. I'm torn between this one -> http://store.bethsoft.com/accessories/bags/general-issue-survival-messenger-bag.html ( the smaller bag, 960 sq inch) and this one -> http://store.bethsoft.com/accessories/bags/vault-tec-messenger-bag.html (the larger bag, 1,121 sq inch) The vault-tec messenger bag has more space which will be nice (cheaper too), but it appears to have less pockets and doesn't look as neat (or have that cool design on the inside). The survival messenger bag has more small pockets for specific things, but is smaller as a whole. Opinions?
  5. 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.
  6. Lo and behold, Siegfried Line is gonna get a few changes, shown here: 1 - Added forest2 - Removed the valley (terrain leveled)3 - Removed the bunker that gave advantage to one side4 - The hills were reworked a bit5 - Changed the way the players can shoot through the bunkers Dont know what to think really about this, adding soft cover to advance might be nice, and maybe flatening the North area will be more forgiving for slow tanks that spawn in the dip. What do you guys think?
  7. 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
  8. Wanted for WOT ASIA - more hero moderators on a power trip. 7 days for that? It's not even an insult.
  9. So my Grandfather died 2001, I was 6 at the time, I don't remember much about him other than him been pretty funny and easy going kinda guy. Now my Grandmother has lived in the same house in Brisbane for as long as I can remember so there's alot of history there. My grandmother is getting a bit on now and is in and out of hospital every month or so, I'm her only relative here except for my cousins at boarding school so I took it upon myself to help her with anything she needs, gardening, cooking sometimes and usually just as company. Now to the interesting part, there's a small Garden shed in the backyard which is used as storage, she pays a guy to do general yard work when I cant so the shed is rarely used for anything. Now just the other day the sliding doors for the shed just fucking collapsed because it's a piece of cheap shit, so been the upstanding grandson that I am I offered to fix it. I went around yesterday to cover it up because she was afraid it was going to rain and I got some replacement rollers on my way home. I head back over there this morning and realize that these doors are going to be an absolute cunt to fix, so me been the curious little shit I am started looking around inside. Right at the back was a box with a power drill in it and then... well.. this. Sorry about Picture quality, was in a hurry and it was taken on my phone. Now I forgot to mention two things: 1. My grandfather fought the Japanese in WW2 and that's literally all I know about it, I've never heard any details apart from that. 2. I remember my mother telling me a story about finding a box in the house that had some really amazing artwork carved on the outside and had some Japanese (she assumed) letters on the top, she asked my grandfather about it and he went really quiet and simply picked the box up and left So, what the fuck is it. Because I'm coming up short, and before you ask no I have not asked my Grandmother about it, I just took pictures and put it back.
  10. Got some disposable income, planning to buy either Darkest Dungeon, Space Hulk Ascension, or WH40k Space Marines. Can only choose one, help plox
  11. I was inspired to make this video after XxAl3xX posted a replay on the EU forums! It proves that sometimes you have to do the unexpected to beat the odds. I hope you enjoy the video. http://youtu.be/kQ9eRxZUqUo
  12. Have you made a decent even impossible shot post your replay file here with an approximate time lets see what you got! If I get enough I may do an RNG style video. Here is a recent effort of mine in the T34 American heavy at 463 mtr (I think).
  13. I joined this forum at the end of July with the goal of beating the Tier 7 learning curve and getting all of my Tier 7s over 50%. I have 4 tier 7s in my garage - Tiger, KV-3, SU-152, Panther - and last night I got the SU-152 over 50%. I also earned the last bit of XP to unlock the ISU-152 in the same battle. So now: Tiger - 51% Panther - 51% SU-152 - 50% KV-3 - 44% (the next project) In the process, my overall game knowledge and play at all levels has increased siginficantly and I have 60-day blue W/R and purple WN7 to show for it. I'll be taking a short break from regular play for the next 2-weeks while mid-term exams are on, then back to fix my miserable KV-3 record. Thanks for the carry WotLabs!
  14. So. I wake up an hour before my alarm, I decide to just get back to sleep and I do so. Then I proceed to have my most idiotic dream ever: I select my AC 48 in the garage, I press the battle button and I find myself in a Cromwell, circling IS-3's to death. A few days ago I found myself calculating costs of buying two T8 and a T9 tank during a university lecture... Just... wat? What's your most odd out-of-the-game moment you found yourself thinking/daydreaming/dreaming about the game? note: sorry if such a topic exists already, I must have missed it while looking for it
  15. I just bought the M3 Lee, on the path towards T-29 (setting a short target not a long target yet). All I have is a 100% Commander and the remainder of the crew at 75%. I suppose I'm trying to figure out which modules to aim for first and eventually which skills to put on the crew. I don't think they'll be at 100% by the time I have elited the tank but if it happens then some tips on crew skills for the lee would be helpful. Cheers. Forgot to add: Best path towards the T-29, via the M4 Jumbo or T1 Heavy?
