  4. Should I get the T-44-100 or WZ-120-FT? I enjoy both bush kemping and medium-ing

      44-100 is amazing for frontline. WZ isnt for FL so maybe that helps?

      I have way more fun in my 44-100 and play it quite a bit in Frontlines when I get tired of the Spagetto.

      44-100 is is a better t44, WZ costs less.

  5. @leggasiini I thought that the late-war paper Japanese TDs were supposed to have a belt-fed 10cm, not the big naval guns.....

  6. Anyone good on Youtube that I can watch to L2P some maps and tanks?

    Anything interesting going on?

      dead forum in regards to content unless someone takes to time to make any, mostly just game updates being discussed by a better playerbase than the official forums now

      the 2 wotlabs discords are more active, the wotlabs chat discord and the official wotlabs discord

      We have the 0(O) thing going on

  8. Just played a little bit of WoT, although on test server, and if someone ever told me before that WG will introduce more cancerous game mechanic than arty I'd call him crazy. Holy fucking Jesus wheeled shitanks are so fkn cancerous. Even if I ever thought of coming back to play, after this there's 0% chance.

    1. Private_Miros

      Private_Miros

      That was my first impression as well, but in the end, it's quite alright. I don't mind them unless I am playing slower scout tanks.

  9. I don't want to farm anymore T_T And even 3*s avoid me now :rabble:

      I started salomon, but it's a bit difficult without (double) waver and memelin/tamamo, I have to use all of my iq to find alternative strats.

      I'll try that, as well as asterios/hans/mata hari->support mashumallow for 1,5M hp goetia, first attempt with somewhat normal team (mata hari front  to skill seal + support memelin ) ended with humanity incinerated in 3-4 turns:v

  10. Ah, yes, this was why we didn't like encounter.

      I happily trade the odd trash encounter cap for adding higher likelihood of the better maps

      Standard is still and has always been the worst gamemode when it comes to viability, if I could turn it off I would (not even taking the maps I wouldn’t be playing into consideration)

      What does grind my gear with the mode however is that putting it on makes some of the more reasonable map bans redundant since they’ll still be in your map pool for the other modes which is too big of a drawback and Erlenberg shows up thrice as often with all modes enabled :superserb:

      @hazzgar run optics and vents to get all the spotting and rake in the patrol duty medals. The T95 makes a pretty good scout as well as a sledghammer.

      @Diriz0n if you'd have kept the old 30P and buffed it's RoF/bloom a little bit I think they'd be fairly competitive to one another. PTA wins because of alpha+long term mobility+apcr pen but if you would fix the pen values of the 30P in its current state you could probably make a really good duality, fairly similar gameplay between the two tanks. If you'd give the 30P a gun on a similar level to the PTA then their own platforms are different enough to warrant different types of gameplay without having to be better/worse and merely being a subjective opinion.. that'd be great balancing imo

      I loved the 30P before the rework, it was a strong patton substitute when flat armour got more common, afterwards very not enjoyable. The 30B on the other hand is better now than it was before, so I guess you win some you lose some

      Type 61 and Standard B also fall into the same kind of gameplay, they play very similarly in most regards (although Type 61 is just worse at almost everything) and Standard B has its gimmick that you barely need to use on it. M46 was in this category of ridge-poking/snapshotting/reactionary gameplay as well but it sucks dick now :serb: 

      didn't think type 61>m46 would be a thing to say in wot.. ever

      @hazzgar

      does that sort of vacuum thinking really work for the t95? x3n4 used to say similar things about autoloaders when it came to shots fired/taken ratio and it's an impossible rule to follow there

      "only poke when you trade full clip for a single shot" is something i tried to do in autoloaders for ages but it's too hard to hold yourself to, you end up too cautious and losing out instead, i found that it works well for the first 2 clips you fire but after that it doesn't hold true anymore because of how the game develops

      t95 is slow enough that you can't really react to much, you have to predict something if you want to fight it.. i trashed it the second i 3marked it and never looked back but with its buffs, is it actually able to pick its fights better? playstyle looks the exact same regardless of mobility buffs to me which doesn't really fix its problem

  13. Win rate seems to be fucking 100% luck based for me now days. AKA MM is fucking me

  14. Alright, after 200-odd games I've started to return ending up top 3 in most of my games. I actually enjoy playing. I am actually having fun.

  22. Im looking for people to plat with on EU server ( I got 2.3k).. I play tier 8-10, if you're interested add me : GHOSTK1LL3R. IDC what your overall stats are, if you have over 2.8k recent in tier 8s+ hmu!

      Hey man, i'll play once I get into the campaign properly. Not even joined TS yet haha, but from next Thursday i'll be fully engaged and can play tier 10 especially (platoons help prevent 3 minute roflstomps).

  23. Is there any other tech tree tank with higher 3 mark reqs than the EBR 105?

      I am seeing Prog65 @ 4,O8O combined. Seems very low to me. M6O tops the charts, @ 4,76O -- which I guess makes sense because of it being within the bonds store, and people with the required thousands of bonds needed more or less are better than normal players, boosting reqs. Highest tech tree med I see is M48A5, @ 4,42O. Extremely surprising, as I thought it would definitely be 121 or BatChat, lowest med reqs is the TVP @ 3,825 -- thats just whack. Pretty sure a year ago this time we'd be looking @ 4.5K

      T1OOLT is fucked up high for a LT, @ 3,995 combined

       

      Chief, Kresl, IS5 are all going to increase from their pathetic 3MoEs pretty soon.

      As to those last 3, maybe not. The KV-4 Kres is absolutely terrible, and the other two are not much better. I think it's fair to say the KV-4 Kres is the absolute worst tank in my garage.

      @Diriz0n where are you checking those since we are obviously using different sources.

       

      Also what's the values for ebr at yours?

  24. How does penetration work with overmatched spaced armor? if a tank with a 100mm plate have a 20mm plate on top of it, will a 90mm shell overmatch the spaced armor? If not, how much penetration is deducted?

    1. sr360

      sr360

      Each of those plates are impacted individually, they are not summed for the purposes of overmatch. Fromt he wiki:

      "In case of spaced armour, shells are normalized at the point of impact on the spaced armour, and if they penetrate, continue along their normalized flight path into the vehicle. Once it impacts the hull armour, normalization occurs again and the remaining penetration potential (i.e. the original penetration potential minus the effective armour thickness of the spaced armour) is used to calculate whether the shell penetrates the hull proper."

    2. M4A3E8sherman

      M4A3E8sherman

      Actually I'm not sure we really know.

      After the Super Pershing armor model was updated for HD, the UFP effective thickness should have been about 220mm AP according to the wiki explanation, but was in fact much greater.

    3. Diriz0n

      Diriz0n

      over matches are calculated individually on each impact. In the case of good examples like obj 257 or 252U, shooting the side of the tank where it is 2O+2O+45mm  (tracks+rebar+hull)  or 3O+45mm  (spaced side+hull)  any gun over 135 starting at Conway+Type 5 cannons are over matching the armour completely. The only way you miss is if the shot passes through the outer portions, over matches, then proceeds to miss the hull behind....such as the back of the tank or too low, beneath the tank actual hull hitbox. 

      Tanks like FV183 and Cent AX are very susceptible to taking damage from side hits, exactly as SR36O explained. Even without instant over match. They take a hit even through the tracks, which is a low armour value, normalization occurs  (usually 2x caliber granting 2x norm effect)  so the projectile loses very little actual pen but is sent hurdling towards the hull at a new better angle, where you impact a measly 51mm hull then. HEAT doesn't have this, and loses pen quite fast over distance traveled after impact, which makes it very prone to Wtf bounces

       

       

  25. Just hit 69.69% MoE on the Churchill Game Carrier. I'm wondering if I should stop here? Is this even better than 3 marking it?

  27. I have 63+ WR for days now I mean look at my recent. Well the last two days it's in the 40s. What gives. It's like the game completely changed on me. I get teams that die in 3 minutes. Literally. I know it's stupid but it's hard not to think this shit is rigged sometimes.

      Wot map rotator is stupid so I assume whatever algorithm sorts teams for them may also have a habbit of bunching up players for a long time.

       

      Also tanks being faster and having more dpm means more steamrolls which means its harder to carry. 

  28. So... this is how it feels to be a baddie.

      I had my first day averaging over 2k WN8 and I am quite happy about that. Only took me 200 games. And I'm solid purple on my favorite maps. I just still have complete derp moments on many others.
