  1. Today
  2. Was probably the most autistic day in wot I’ve had in a while. Some how though it was still enjoyable despite the mind numbing teams (pushing 9 tanks down the beach in overlord for some reason). With a little reservations I can say this has been a pretty fun period in WoT for me. Quite a few things to fix but still fun for the most part. Although keeping in mind I don’t play a whole lot outside clan activities. The occasional random pub honestly doesn’t seem that bad. At least better than the Type 5 Heavy and obj 268 v 4 meta.

  3. Why are 15-1 blowouts so frequent? Are tanks dying much faster these days compared to 2-3 years ago?

      IMO a combination between higher alpha tanks, more tanks that are unbeatable hulldown, map design featuring key locations that are almost impossible to recover from, and an influx of bad players since everyone is at home.

      That said, I actually feel like the games last longer when they don't blow out, and my draws have doubled compared to 2015-2016.

      I haven’t had the issues of 15-1 blowouts that often yet (thankfully) but I have noticed the matches are much faster as of late. Probably down to all the faster high alpha tanks they added.

  4. Just to add to this, Barry is right now doing Chieftain 3 marks on his own account, after he just 100%ed the STB. His thing is to 100% tier 10s for fun - it's insane how easy he generally makes it look. If he plays one tank for long enough he then starts taking it to a level you rarely see in WOT, like peak Kolni basically - his last 5 games of the STB 100% mark are just ridiculous, making a 6k average seem normal: If you want to see peak tier 10 gameplay in English, I'm not sure there's anyone better than Barry right now esepcially given that he is back to streaming everyday due to Corona.
  5. Not so much damage wise but for some reason I've been losing a lot more games recently, I was wondering if you could critique me and my games to see what I could've done to win. The first one is a bad one on fishbay. http://wotreplays.eu/site/5308309#fisherman_s_bay-thetrojanwarrior-m48a5_patton The second one is a game on Redshire, good damage but I have a feeling that I could've done more to win this battle. http://wotreplays.eu/site/5308310#redshire-thetrojanwarrior-object_907 The third is a game on overlord. Not sure what I could've done here. http://wotreplays.eu/site/5308312#overlord-thetrojanwarrior-m48a5_patton The fourth game was on Paris. http://wotreplays.eu/site/5308313#paris-thetrojanwarrior-m48a5_patton The fifth game was on Mali. Good damage but a loss because I didn't know how to dig out the a line camp after we won the hill http://wotreplays.eu/site/5308315#malinovka-thetrojanwarrior-m48a5_patton This session was really bad win rate wise. I only won 1/7 games during this session and it was really off putting.
  6. i've never played grand battles so was kinda weird doing analysis on a map i literally never played myself
  7. Yesterday
  8. Thanks for doing this Kolni. The mechanics are unfixable, but I completely agree with your other criticism. I guess my mindset is somewhat different -- your basic philosophy seems to be go to the biggest mass of HP and bludgeon them down, whereas I tend to head towards key map points and deploy from there. Some it is absolutely crutching on platoons (because friends make the game worth playing) and some of it is comfort/familiarity with spots. Some of the struggles you noticed were from playing high gun dep tanks and then taking a 277 to the same spots and not having that same -8 to 10 degrees to work with. I'll probably rewatch your video again to focus on some points I thought key, but I do appreciate the feedback. Cheers and stay safe!
  9. Ah, ok. Then replace all my previous uses of the term “virulence” with one of those two words. Such are the risks of my having just enough of a dusting of knowledge of a subject to trip myself up.
  10. Why in the fuck are 50% of Chieftains droolers?

      Yolo Scouted for months earning 5 Bonds per Scout Medal.  Then he recruited a clan of Retards to play Clan Wars

      He earned enough Honor Points to buy a Chieftan, then proceeded to show everyone how bad an actual RETARD can play the best tank in the game.

      500 games and 36% win rate with a WN8 of literally 0

      I just hate that even though half of the chiefs are driven by 50%ers they still are stupidly dangerous. I wish there was even a tiny shred of thought put into the abominations they stick in this game.

  11. Shift because I can't go x8 -> max FoV -> x8 in on a single up-down scroll as shift is faster and x8 is the only zoom I ever use anyway
  12. Virulence means the ability to infect, not the ease of transmission. HIV is a virulent virus, in that it evades host defenses pretty easily. What you're thinking of is infectivity or transmissibility.
  13. Given that it's only (feasibly) transmissible through specific methods of sex, and blood transfusion, it's hard for me to call that virulent compared to respiratory diseases or even diseases transmitted through casual physical contact. Or is virulence defined by some more specific way to doctors? To me it just means "spreads easily and quickly."
  14. Right. I guess it seems to me that there are viruses that are virulent, viruses that tend to evade immunity and vaccination, and viruses that are severe...but I can't offhand think of a virus that's achieved all three at once. Colds are virulent and diverse enough you can't effectively immunize against them all, influenza is virulent and a more severe and mutates, but not fast enough to entirely evade vaccination, and so forth. But I can't offhand think of a virus that's diverse enough to make natural immunity difficult, and it mutates fast enough to make vaccination a constant battle, and it's virulent, and it's commonly deadly.
  15. Played these 5 back to back: http://wotreplays.eu/site/5307305#studzianki-spinee-object_277 http://wotreplays.eu/site/5307327#fjords-spinee-object_277 http://wotreplays.eu/site/5307328#serene_coast-spinee-object_277 http://wotreplays.eu/site/5307355#mountain_pass-spinee-object_277 http://wotreplays.eu/site/5307415#kharkov-spinee-object_277 I think my mechanic knowledge is relatively good. The two biggest problems that have crept up on me again is using team lists, both mine and enemy team, in order to decide what positions are effective upon deployment. Additionally, a lot of times my indecisiveness in the mid to late game in terms of positioning can cost me to be late to key positions (Which you see in the first game actually), health or damage. I think this comes down to the fact that I generally don't like to make plays until I'm absolutely certain of where enemy tanks are that can affect those plays (Unspotted TDs) etc., so I'd like help on this too. Edit: Removed a 5A replay that was just a straightforward W key win and added another 277 game instead.
  16. I'm not a virologist, but I haven't read whether SARS-CoV-2 will be more akin to measles, HBV or poliovirus, where prior exposure/vaccination confers immunity, or rhinovirus where there are multiple strains circulating and you don't have cross-immunity, or influenza where it is constantly mutating to evade vaccine protection. I don't think there's evidence that it lays dormant in a reservoir like the herpesviruses (notably HSV, CMV or VZV)
  17. I don't remember if I mentioned this already, but I saw something recently that said that all social distancing (and similar) measures do is delay the spread, and ultimately have no effect on infection rates or deaths, except insofar as the measures prevent the number of serious cases climbing above ICU capacity and available respirator counts. Which makes sense; the disease still exists and the odds of actually freezing all interaction until the virus has zero non-immune and uninfected people to jump to. That said, your point about vaccines and immunity is sound - but I know of no instances of virulent viral diseases where we neither develop immunity nor work up a vaccine. Maybe @sr360 would know of examples of that sort of thing, but it seems unlikely for a virus to come along and sort of become permanent like that.
  18. Just go through my content, look at my topics and read them and you should have some ideas on improvement. My strategy is literally spamming games until I'm in shape when coming back. I spam 100 games in as tight of a period I can and then I'm generally back in my groove. It's the Kewei way and it works for me too.
  19. Actually done like 100+ since I came back and still playing this shit
  20. Oh, sorry. I don't use wotreplays much, so I was not aware how this works. Here are the proper links: http://wotreplays.eu/site/5306989?secret=9d78f3a644188758a8c843e0ed1194af http://wotreplays.eu/site/5306993?secret=9d78f3a644188758a8c843e0ed1194af http://wotreplays.eu/site/5306995?secret=9d78f3a644188758a8c843e0ed1194af http://wotreplays.eu/site/5306999?secret=9d78f3a644188758a8c843e0ed1194af http://wotreplays.eu/site/5307001?secret=9d78f3a644188758a8c843e0ed1194af
  21. Instructions unclear... 13 games in Leo and 2 wins.
  22. Absolutely! I try to keep my criticism relative to the player I'm reviewing as well as I can. As there will be more decisions I disagree with entirely on the lower end of the player skill spectrum I try my best just to play along with the decisions made and how then to make the best of them. When there are games without a developed gameplan I try to construct one for you. As I believe you can make super unicum just on mechanical proficiency alone it tends to be a bigger focus on that earlier on the skill spectrum as there will be many more mechanical mistakes made that don't have anything to do with decisionmaking. I'll only do 5, so I'm gonna exclude the last replay. They are also private, so you need to send the private link for me to download them. Only you can view them on their normal links. There's sharing options to get the private link. Or make them public/reupload them. (I'm also much, much, much harder on the "best" players as I will have to nitpick very much to find lapses in their judgment as it's obviously better and that type of stuff comes off as very flamey compared to the easier stuff) @sr360 I re-watched the video as I noticed my mic cuts off sometimes and I got some more feedback hearing my own thoughts during the gameplay. I disagree with your initial deployments - I don't know if this is because of platooning and you constructing a gameplan together but from a solo player PoV you're generally not going where the most damage is to farm for you. Your decisionmaking on the fly is very good. You react well to the unknown and don't let it throw you off. I think this is your strongest player quality. Sadly mechanics really hold you back, I think the decisionmakings in the replays come from a higher level of play than your current rating is. If you were to spam 5k games solo and had the time to do it along with just being younger and able to really refine your mechanics I definitely think your decisionmaking along with that would put you in a spot to 4K DPG+ tier 10s for sure.
  23. I am nowhere close to the level of people who posted their replays before me, so I know that there are plenty mistakes and deficiencies in my gameplay, but I would be thankful if you could give some tips on the areas with greatest potential for improvement, as well as some tips regarding positioning and decision making. http://wotreplays.eu/site/5306989#murovanka-isterija-m48a5_patton http://wotreplays.eu/site/5306993#hinterland-isterija-m48a5_patton http://wotreplays.eu/site/5306995#ensk-isterija-m48a5_patton http://wotreplays.eu/site/5306997#erlenberg-isterija-object_430u http://wotreplays.eu/site/5306999#murovanka-isterija-object_430u http://wotreplays.eu/site/5307001#paris-isterija-object_430u
  24. The issue is at this point given current treatments even in ICU a lot of people will die. Without ICU even more. Hence flattening the curve. But then what? Without a vaccine or effective treatment it's still going to go around pretty much everyone unless there's basically a loooooong global lock down. Global economy fucked. And if we don't see acquired immunity after exposure or any successful vaccine life as we know it will have to be different.
