  2. I thought bouncing missions couldn't get more annoying than in the first campaign, but now I have to do them with tanks from the USSR or China as well. I wonder what tank can bounce 2x its HP. Not an IS-7, people know better than to shoot it hull down and heat and HE meta is a thing. Perhaps a 257 driving sideways/sidescraping badly against 7s and 8s? Or can a T-150 do it, sidescraping against lower tiers? Or perhaps an IS-M on a good day? I have that one unlocked and could grind it, I suppose.

      I'm guessing you need a lot of luck. Taking a top-tier heavy to an area where you'd expect lower tier meds or something.

    3. Kymrel


      47 games in a baby-bobject is what it took to do 4x double hp blocking missions. Because of course I didn't survive one of those. Fuck all blocking missions.

      There are a lot of stupid missions. Especially in the 279. Although the 15th ones are pretty easy. Only three 1st class badges in 15 games. But the mission with the Allies "be top 3 xp in the game 5 games in a row is stupid" It's hard enough winning 5 in a row! 

  3. Tried not being a scrooge and began running my BC with food.. is it just me or has it started performing a lot better.. (my decision-making still a problem, ofc)

    1. Ham_


      Autoloader + Food is the most effective combo in game

    2. mistervanni


      name a more iconic but really, i cant wait to try out the improved thingie on bc...just need wait after campaign

    3. sohojacques


      I think food is a necessity on the line from at least the tier 8. View range for the LTs plus gun handling for the MTs. And I rarely run food.

      Problem is who wants to dump credits running food on a tier 8 with a 600+xp grind...

  5. Does anyone know of a WoTlabs-esque progress tracker for Hearthstone?

  6. Best (sound) after market microphone Imo - 30$



  7. "Is this Defender really stupid enough to drive off this cliff just to chase my light tank?"

    "Hahaha, he's really going to do it!"

    0 damage

      People really want to kill lights recently

    2. Jesse_the_Scout


      On the plus side we did eventually pick him apart and win. But I swear to god if I had made the drop he did I would have lost half my health.

  8. dark mode yet :(

      A look another misogynistic comment from you where you base your views on a tabloid article aimed at cheap outrage and to bait people like you. Did not expect you to get baited so easily.


      Also the article basically says "women are people too, people can be shit to each other and since women are people so can women". Out next in @Folterknecht deconstruction of modern femininity "women poop and fart" and "this lady crashed, just like that man". 

      @ZXrage TV stations are really male dominated and a big part of the shitty culture stems from a specific form of male behavior that's really annoying even to many normal guys. Also this is a tabloid article so I'd take it with a grain of salt. As long as that grain is the size of a planet.

    4. Folterknecht


      Funny that the sentiment expressed in the linked article I already encountered while in my late teens from some female friends/acquaintances. They 'd much rather work in a male only company than the other way around. Sure they were not "girly girls" or feminists when it came to character and attitude, but that was probably the reason I got along with them.



  9. Last week
  10. Did some retard streamer suggest the only role of a light is to ruin the lives of other lights even if it means dying yourself? jesus  dropped from 92% to 88% on my elc even just because every enemy light wants to ram me even if it means driving in front of 10 enemy guns.

    1. Kymrel


      Could be some of them are doing missions where they need to damage/kill light tanks. Missions make people do stupid things.

    2. hazzgar


      Makes sense. I have to play passive as shit not to get yolod now. 

  11. In what world are the LT-432 and the T92 in the same tier? Grinding missions by nations is a bitch. Spotting tanks without being detected is almost as retarded as the blocking missions.

      Only a couple of maps where that's even feasible, outside absurd luck. Mali and Prok are the best bet, and then on a good day. Better do it before the wheeled yolo-wagons enter the game though.


    3. Deus__Ex__Machina


      i got it on tundra of all places, i put a camo net on the T100 and spotted all the meds/heavys/TD's crossing to the hill

    4. Kymrel


      Nice of them to oblige!

  12. Me - black prince cant be as bad as Churchil VII 

    Also me - churchill VII, kv85, su100 penning me frontally without aiming and prem ammo. This is going to be a fun grind

      Maybe on track. 65 games for a t7 tank seems fast. I did my amx 13 75 in 70 and lights usually get higher avg exp.

    3. Balthazars


      I'm at the Church I at the moment. It's okay for a tier 5, but then again, it's tier 5 and pew-pew tanks can be okay with goldspam. Not particularly looking forward to the Church VII. Is it as painful as it looks?

      fixing derp
    4. hazzgar


      @Balthazars imagine you are as slow, have same alpha, same armor and are a tier higher only for some hp. 

  13. Is there any way to take off camo off rental tanks that expired?

    1. 8_Hussars


      Official forums discussed this and I believe a Support ticket was necessary...

    2. hazzgar
  14. I totally forgot to activate all of my vehicle discounts before the end of the campaign... missing out on a 30% discount on a tier X is going to hurt. FeelsBadMan

    1. Hellsfog


      You have until 1.4 drops to take the discounts.

    2. FavreFan4ever


      I see WG has listed instructions for how to do so on their website. Thanks!

  15. vanilla font makes (e) look a lot like lel

  16. Any rumors about future twitch prime offers?

  17. You have some unused rewards. Do not forget to activate them before the release of Update 1.4!

    Must I assign the remaining 2 female recruits before 1.4 rolls out?

    1. hazzgar


      I don't think you need to assign them since there is now a "recruits" bar in your barracs

  18. 47%. That stock tier 8 feeling...

    1. hazzgar


      Stock t8? Have you tried stock t9? 

    2. sohojacques
  19. AMX 13 105.. worth it or not?

      If you like the 1390, then sure but outside of it being a Fun tank for you, i'd pass and just enjoy the pseudo pref MM at t9

    3. hazzgar


      Do you want to win? Then no. Do you want to have fun? Then yeah.

    4. sundanceHelix


      Thanks guys! Guess I'll just stick with the 13 90. Finding the 4-shot clip a lot more manageable than the old 6-shot. Still firing 70% gold though. :(

  20. Found RGB strips in a shop and put them around my desk, am I gamer now?

    1. Assassin7


      Depends if you also have an RGB gaming chair

  21. Simracing boi gets to drive a GT4 Mclaren around the top gear test track

    What a lad!

  22. Jesus you were not kidding when you said Bulldog is shit now. I thought "i can make it work. I played 4k light battles in last 5k battles" but jesus. It's a fat medium with no alpha. It would have to have 5 points better camo and 10m better vr to be working

  23. Gotta say the true multicore support they added to 1.4 is really fucking nice. I get way better FPS (and more importantly, more stable FPS) and can actually use my 144hz monitor to its fullest.

    1. Bavor


      I'll have to try it out on my laptop to see what the difference is.  It has a 6 core 12 thread i7.

      I haven't noticed a difference on my desktop.  I was already running at the max refresh rate of my 3440x1440 100Hz monitor and about 100 FPS on my 4K monitor when I used that.

      I don't have the hardware to test it, but I wonder if WoT still supports SLI?

    2. Tman450


      I have an SLI setup somewhere, I'll test it. My desktop's CPU is an FX-8320 OC'd so I was severely CPU bottlenecked. My average FPS improved by about 50.

  24. I know I've a lot to improve, but why is it that when I platoon I consistently run 60-70% WRs but once I solo I consistently get 48-50% WRs? My playstyle varies very little except in the rare mutually-supporting-carry situation

    2. sundanceHelix


      I think Fulcrous' observation about 'passive supports' is true, recently I've been playing a lot of tanks which cannot very aggressively frontline - Challenger, Panther II, STA, WT4 etc, while I get much better WRs from my LTs and HTs which can push the frontlines well by presence or vision. 

      but Hazzgar and mistervanni's comments are true too - after a long hiatus I have not been able to read battle flow as well as I did before and the essential solo skills of being very situationally-aware and tactically-on-point just aren't there as before

    3. hazzgar


      Yeah I'm playing less regurarly too and my recents dropped to 57-58 from 60-62%. Though it also has to do with playing too many tanks with different playstyles.

    4. Ham_


      Usually because of the age old math equation, 29v1 < 27v3


    I feel this is unnecessary and going to piss some people off.

      Confirm can. Off pissed am.

    3. Assassin7


      Seriously the only redeeming feature of that thing was its rarity. 

      Now its just a worthless TD

    4. simba90


      Would probably make a good anchor for WoWs
