  1. Today
  2. Woo, feels good to be back on the saddle. I find it thoughtful that WG would go to the efforts to acknowledge long time players with a warming description and a free tank that I'll actually play.

  3. Yesterday
  4. +1/-1 MM in SEA makes the game more bearable. Might see it fill up the times without beer during xmas ...

    1. Politx_Killer


      Only amatuers don't stock up on beer for Chrissy.

  5. Ok, change of heart, IS-3A is broke as balls and WG have incredibly given it magical hovermed terrain resistance 

    1. hazzgar


      Wait you thought it wasn't because it has bad accuracy? It was a balanced if annoying tank without the autoreloader. Now they added autoreloading and cut the aimtime by 0.4s. 

  6. I wonder how WG will react to both QB and Skill heavily criticizing them in a short span of times. No swearing or even irony here so no angle to go after them like Circon or Foch.

      I thought they rented hookers and hired monkeys. ;thinking;

    3. Hellsfog


      The monkeys do double duty so it's the same thing.

  8. I'm curious what the Wotlabs community thinks is more important when a team is up 6 tanks and several thousand HP in a tier 10 3/5/7 battle?  Keeping the enemy STRV 103B permatracked so he does zero damage to our tanks approaching the enemy cap or spotting the other TDs and arty at the enemy cap?

    1. Haswell


      Protecting your own cap is most important obviously. You should all form a blockade at your base to prevent nonexistent enemies from capping you out. Make sure to position yourself behind your arty for maximum protection.


  9. Is it worth waiting to see if reward tanks will become available to buy for bonds or should I just buy some equipment instead? If equipment, rammer or vert stab?

      I think he's talking about the new bond reward tanks like the CheifT95 thing. Given how generous WG has been with bonds lately, I expect something like 15000 bonds to get one at least

    3. Assassin7


      idk about that lavawing

      @dirty the best is Vstab IMO, I put ivents on my batchat, and it only took half a second off the total clip time of it, for example. 

      Ivents also took my STB reload from 6.33 to 6.28.

      I suggest trying out the various directives before you buy and find what gives the best bonus, as most if not all the directives add the same bonus as improved equipment would add over the standard. 

    4. Ham_


      I dropped optics for improved vents, just personal taste

  10. Guess who's back.

      I still think it would be funny to blacklist 11A_D from that list.

    3. mati_14


      Is there any reason for BULBA players to come back to this game? To me at least feels the most pointless time to play WoT, also not being really entertaining...

    4. TheChang


      To have fun during the holidays, and after not playing for years, still be able to beat "top" NA clans in advances.

  11. How to 3 mark UDES?

    The baffling team/map dependency is killing me and I'm only at 89%

    1. hazzgar


      Have you tried working as a scout early on? Didn't 3 mark mine but I relatively easily reached 2 mark at the end of my grind while working from full stock with an imperfect crew, no food and close to no prem spam so 3 marks should be easy.

  12. How do relatively bad players manage relatively good dpg in Tier X artas? Does it have something to do with platooning basically guaranteeing every match is full Tier X hence HP to farm? 

    1. hazzgar


      T10 got way more static because of hull down meta so arty can feast. Also bigger splash means even if you aim like a donkey you will do damage. Fast reload means you will do it often. Haven't played the t10's but I play the m53/55 for missions and jesus it's so easy it makes my LEFEFEFE look like a bad arta in comparison

  13. Lest it be forgotten what WG thought was a good idea.


  14. A good way to troll, is not to troll at all. People don't despise you, then. Unless, you burn a building full of stuffed animals, then people hate you. 

  15. Oh boy, it's cancer to play today. Half the team camping all the way back in their new and shiny SU-130s

  16. Got 140 a day ago, having trouble pushing past 3k most games because the tank is so damn squishy, any advice that isn't buy a 430U :/

    2. DirtyACE7


      I won't tell you to buy the 430U. I'll just tell you to git gud ;)


    3. Ham_


      Been trying to do the 4.5k mission but I only got it 4 times in 20 games, always finishing with 3k or 5k, no in between, or get royally fucked 15-0 because the tier x morons are out in full force.

    4. Kolni


      it was last marathon day today, it was a fiesta

      my 5k dpg 50b dropped to 4k lol


      but uh i don't remember @hazzgar 

  17. After trying some rentals. Jesus the community is so wrong on what's good for premiums. Somua is amazing. Doing 5k dmg is easy as balls in it yet people undervalue it. On the other hand skorpion now is annoying as fuck to play, WZ120 is ok but still no turret, low hp and derpy.

      I think a lot of people suspected the SM was going to be really good.  Its probably the only tier 8 prem I don't have that is worth buying boxes for this xmas

    3. lavawing


      120 G FT is good on almost every stat except aiming/comfort, just annoying af to play

      Skorp is still king at shitting out damage at longer ranges

      Somua is a bit too derpy for my tastes, but IMO all the tanks you listed are good and better than tech tree counterparts, and it's a matter of preference which one if any you run

    4. Mureke


      The intra-clip reload, clip potential, and DPM of the Somua are godlike. Nice AP pen and gun depression to top it off.

  18. Is it just me being retarded, or does this guy from reddit actually have 17 crew on his commander?

    2. Fulcrous


      Lol not happening.

      The cumulative total for 8 skill perks, let alone 17, is 53 660 784. Even assuming 1000 xp goes into the commander every battle, you would need 53k + games. The cumulative xp more or less doubles each perk so you do the math.

      He would need more or less 27 474 321 408 (27.5 billion) xp. Even with boosters that isn't happening.

    3. Hellsfog


      The sad part is that nobody even questions whether the claim is a typo. 

    4. Fulcrous


      I think that's because 7 is believable.
      I'm at 6.8 for my RU med crews and 6 on bat. They have 3.8k and 2.8k battles respectively.

      and iirc tazilon had like 10+ on his 2801

  19. 4th Code is up.  Might want to save it for when you can get the max use.

      It just looks like plain text on the wotlabs home page.  At least on my pc.

      Enable rich text and see what mess you made.

    4. j_galt


      Looks fine using Firefox.   Old school browser = master browser?

  20. 50 100 at the moment plays like a gimped old Lorraine and you more or less have the same mm, playing with it solo is a form of torture.

      EU PUSH STRONK meta really hurts when you don't have batchat mobility to make up for that excruciating reload, not that it can't deal damage but it's by far the easiest autoloader in the game to get caught out in.

    3. Balthazars


      Grinding this atm, don't even have the top gun. It is utterly painful. To be honest the main thing is that I was expecting it to be more mobile given the utter lack of armour, but it feels surprisingly sluggish.

    4. Ham_


      It's one of those weird turn really fast but can't go fast tanks

  21. So despite the fact the 907 is objectively better than the 140, and despite the fact that callers downright refuse to take a 140 over a 907 in CW, meaning that despite the fact I play the 907 most often and put improved equipment on it, I still much prefer the 140 to the 907.

      Kolni what about the 430U. Can't that sidescrape perfectly? Or is it because you don't consider it a medium?

    3. Fulcrous


      Let's not forget 140 has the easily pennable sides (even when sidescraping). There's a guaranteed penetration zone.

    4. Kolni


      430u is pretty moot, it does different things than the 907/140 anyway - farms more easily but less effectively

      i haven't checked 430u angles in but from experience with high pen APCR there is no way he can actually sidescrape and fire at you without giving pennable shots back, but it might be a thin line of a perfect angle idk


  22. Actually streaming tanksfor some reason: 

  23. WOT Weekly posted the 3rd Code


    Also there is a Red v Blue type Code

    Krampusvagn or Santamaus

  24. i remember days of reward tank licenses, anyone knows how much they go :armoredcar:for now?

  25. Why the fuck is the friendly arty always a constipated chicken nugget and the enemy one is the lead warpack dev

    1. simba90


      What do you mean by friendly arty? Are they the  green ones that stun you while circling an enemy TDs in a light tank?

    2. Nicarasu


      Ah yes, the enemy spies.

  26. Jesus everyone praised the wz120 TD yet it makes shit money. Like a t7 prem. Compared to Somua or Lowe it's horrible as a money maker and no turret makes is not really fun

  27. Earlier

  29. I seem to have somehow completely forgotten how to play the TVP.

    like 8 games in it yesterday and I only managed to break 2k damage once. I have no idea what is wrong with me
