  1. Yesterday
  2. Good day 1/13 wins despite 3200wn8 in bc25ap... Then I decided to give the middle finger to MM with 279e - Prok with 3 arty and a useless scout... 

  3. Huge chinese buffs incoming.

    The T-34-1 wasn't even that horrible to begin with, at least back when I played it.

    You get a low profile, hard turret tank with a punchy but inaccurate gun. Prem rounds helped though. Now they will help even more with 280pen

  4. Bond Turbo + Chrystler G? The tank has 20hp/t but 35kph top speed.  I know the tank is garbage but this takes it closer to the area of a slower medium like the pershing

  5. Just starting to realise how hard doing 25% of your team's damage on a win (i.e. 25% of total enemy HP) is at tier 8 or higher. I was pretty close with the T32 in a 5-7 match but screwed up at the end and fell a bit short. Damn these missions...

    1. sr360

      sr360

      Yeah, that's a hard one. I did it in an unlikely tank - the Tortoise in a game where I pulled my team out of a deep hole with overwhelming DPM

      Very nice! At my level of play, I think to do it at tier 9 or 10 would require a carry that's too rare for me to realistically bank on, so the only other ways to do it would be to ironically luck out on say a fast-cap encounter game or something stupid like that. I will probably drop down to tier 7 where the HP pools are a bit smaller (especially if top tier) to try for it specifically. I finished all other 13 missions for Alliance Chimera but forgot I skipped this one, which is ironically the very first mission in the set! I'm also got this mission or something very similar on some other batch as well.

  6. Last week
  7. Gamers, my long time goal of unicum recents has been achieved has been about ever since I joined this forum.

  8. So consensus best tanks for Bond Turbo? T95? Renegade? Concept? 

  9. WG is going to screw 2.0 again.

  10. Fv4005 suchs a pile of shit, i rly dont understand how ppl can like this (yeah, the kind of ppl who like arty)

    Fv 183 was amazing (till it got nerfed) but this? howgod, its terrible in both performance and and fun...

      PlanetaryGenocide

      I only like it once in a while when I get a meme HESH pen, but otherwise yeah it's absolute trashbarn

  11. Why am I trying to mark a46. It's horrible

    1. sr360

      sr360

      Now now, wasn’t that bad or hard. I even managed a RW in it

       

    2. hazzgar

      hazzgar

      @sr360 it's a good scout thanks to its camo but it's uber slow and the gun is dogshit so it's just unenjoyable to play. Especially on bad maps. 

      Also your own vid title has "bad tanks" in it. 

      But I'm probably tilted because I'm tring to mark 4 tanks at the same time and the 3 other ones are much more fun than a46

    3. sr360

      sr360

      Ha, that's a quote from a friend of mine. The A-46 is definitely mediocre among T6 LTs, but it has some tools. Three equipment slots feels a little low for it, it could definitely use 5 or 6 though!

  12. Earlier

      I'm hoping to acquire a second one for the LTTB/54 ltwt (depending on which one i have by the time I complete stage 100) for... basically the same reason?

      Attempting to 3mark the LTTB first though.

    3. hazzgar

      hazzgar

      LTTB is way more annoying to mark than the t54 because it flips and slides for no reason

    4. PlanetaryGenocide

      PlanetaryGenocide

      yeah it does require a lot of traction management and driving skill... though hopefully WG is supposedly fixing some of the super slidey rocks and shit in the next patch so assuming they don't completely break the game again for the 114th patch in a row it should get better

  14. Fully Immersive VR World.  So I'm drinking a little and watching bad sci-fi (2047: Virtual Revolution).  In a future world with millions of people in VR like 16 hours a day...  Would there still be like 30% complete fucking idiots that can't find the LMB or that just have 0 clue of how to play the game???

    1. hazzgar

      hazzgar

      People won't be sitting 16 hours per day in VR. Also yes people will get confused since people sometimes panic and stop learning and yes some people are stupid. 

    2. kolni

      kolni

      Man if I can live virtually I totally would

  15. Is it only me or does the tank that will benefit the most from Bond Turbo is the Concept 1b given already great power to weight and just bad max speed? With Bond Turbo it goes 51kph.

  16. played first couple of games of tanks in ~2-3 months.

    is it just me or is the camera raised up above the tank more than before? Or have I just been playing far too much War thunder?

    also, that tactical camera thing is awful, so glad I could turn it off

  17. 10v10 ranked was fairly fun.

     

    Contrary to my solopub experience it had a skirmish feel to it all the way for the first two days or so.

      @DoggieKruger 3rd part killed my progress. A ton of loses no matter what I did. I think I sit at 51% WR for 10 vs 10 which is shit.

      I had a lot of fun with this, but between work clashing with the ranked hours for the first week, and then a camping trip with some buddies for a few days the second week, I didn't have enough time to get to a league.
      I reached 1st division on Saturday, and went all the way to rank 8 in that division during Sunday (last day), and with two hours remaining my brain was completely melted and I just bounced back and forth between 7 and 8. So no Turbo for me this time...

      If only they'd opened it an hour or two earlier each night I would have had time to play more and maybe get into Bronze at least.

    4. DoggieKruger

      DoggieKruger

      Primetime is absolutely nuts for somebody who works night shifts like me. I missed half the days just because I had to go the work/was at work.

      My overall results is 64.04% and I'm ended up at Rank 8 like you which I guess is not too horrible

  18. I started Playing Final Fantasy 14 again. It's weird to play a game where no one says the word "fuck" or insults me in chat.

      When games are not designed to be frustrating, and even designed not to be frustrating (as much as possible while still offering some challenge), it shows in their population. That, of course is just one aspect, but a big one.

  19. funny how u can make house into trance by just speeding it up (+8%)

     

    1. LoverJoy

      LoverJoy

      What's the difference?

  20. So the HE changes feel like they have made the vast majority of HE rounds absolutely useless. Take the WZ-111GFT, which before this change had 3 very viable rounds: standard AP, 395-pen HEAT and 1,100 damage, 90mm-pen HE which was very reliable in doing chunk damage to hull-down tanks or just straight-up deleting stuff. Since then, I have tired using HE on several occasions (because with new Intuition the reload goes from 11+ seconds to just 4.5 seconds) but it is close to worthless. 200hp damage on hull-down tanks just isn't enough, and the amount of absolutely stupid zero-damage HE bounces on the side of low-health tanks is just ridiculous. Yes, they made HE more reliable. Reliably bad.

    1. Private_Miros

      Private_Miros

      Been driving paper tanks and I've never been one hit killed and 600+ hit more by arty this side of 2016 than since the changes... Even the stun rounds do 600-700 damage. So arty got a buff, but everything else with HE or potentially useful HE is 0-150 damage unless you pen...

    2. echo9835

      echo9835

      Yeah, HE is a lot less useful and fun now.

    3. Jesse_the_Scout

      Jesse_the_Scout

      And they won. Now all the shitters are swiping their credit cards and shooting HEAT out of their howitzers instead. HE is out, 99999 alpha cancer shells are in.

  21. Just testing some lower-tier howitzers. The Jumbo Sherman and BUGI's lower caliber howitzers are mostly useless now, unfortunately. Both were fairly fun tanks.

      ah, shows what I know.  At least tell me it comes with a derp so I'm not entirely clueless

      Yeah, appears to have the standard US 105 mm, but at tier 4 that might actually work.

    4. echo9835

      echo9835

      I never really had much trouble with the 168 pen AP, even against tier 8s. I  generally avoid fighting tough targets from the front with it and focus on chunking 300 hp off of squishy tanks. I never really shot HE out of it before, so the HE nerf didn't change my playstyle at all.

  22. Just recorded 4 YouTube videos with @sr360 and @TheChang - all about Full Stealth / Camo Torturer builds. Fun times!

      It works on the waffle4 also. Not quite as much camo but with bounty and directive you get 30% which is great for peeks. 

      Someome tell me why i shouldn't put my bond turbo on the waffle4.

      does it have to be a good reason? I can't think of one

  23. AMX 13 90 with full camo build 3 marked. Gentlemen! This is no Humbug!

      I don't know that I agree with that, but I haven't actually played any T9 LT's with a full stealth build yet since I don't have bLNES and I play CVS in the vision slot currently.

      I generally don't have any issues picking up spotting and staying hidden with some careful maneuvering and line-of-sight autism, either, but maybe I'm just used to the maneuverability since it's what I play the most?

      I also get Redshire and Fishbay a lot, which helps lmao

    3. sr360

      sr360

      I'm not sure there's any argument that the T49's camo sucks -- it has the worst camo of any T9 LT. And again, the issue is that if you want to bolster that camo with LNES or bLNES, you're still a good 2-3% behind your other LTs with bLNES, and even farther behind the 13 90, GSOR and EBR 90. Furthermore, any mods you dedicate to scouting means less mods for the gun, and with the HE changes the gun just isn't as effective as it used to be. 

      The pure scouting role is tough for the 49. Sure, you can dunk on pubs more often, and Redshire and Fish bay help, but the kind of shenanigans you can pull with 45% camo in a tiny tank. This sounds heretical, but if I were to scout in the T49, I'd go CVS optics LNES and mount the 90. The 152 is very spiky but now lacks consistency. 

    4. PlanetaryGenocide

      PlanetaryGenocide

      Honestly, yeah, I don't have any real point of comparison here since I don't own any other T9 lights at the moment.  Maybe i'm just getting lucky and consistently going up against inferior scouts both skill and setup wise?  I've never had any issues with the camo in this thing even at 38%, once I get the bounty LNES it'll be over that magic 40% marker

  24. Have you tried a full stealth build on the T10 RHM? Curious as with purple optics it gets 537m VR and with LNES 42 camo. Not great but not dogshit.

      Just play a Kran

      @sr360 I suk dik at Kran. I didn't use to but now I can't find openings to save chevrons on the loses and the gun trolls the shit out of me. IDK what's wrong but t10 guns don't work for me

    4. hazzgar

      hazzgar

      @sr360 ok Kran Gun Doesn't work. Maybe it's Mouse settings or maybe something else but I am horrible at aiming. REALLY REALLY Horrible and it's most visible with the Kran. 

  25. WG nerfs HE. 
    Puts KV2(R) in the Shop
    Next Reward tank will be VK2801 with derp.

    WG is clearly trolling the community by now. 

    1. hazzgar

      hazzgar

      Or hear me out. Balance team and the people responsible for new tanks and the shop are not the same teams and there is literally no communication between them. Kind of like in my company sales and programming were not communicating and we sold stuff I needed for my TV channels...

  26. Did 4k spotting damage in a UK LT but the mission wasn't completed? Strange. Anyone?

      Nevermind. Too dumb to read. But it did never  mention that I completed it... not in the status nor in the Battle Results. I am confused.

    2. Balthazars

      Balthazars

      Did you have an unfinished game in another Alliance tank when you competed this one? I've had this partial glitch before where if I had another unfinished game with an eligible tank, when I finished a game that met the requirements you get no notification that you actually completed the mission, and will need to manually select the next mission, but it will still mark as completed.

    3. graukatze

      graukatze

      I was running LMTV and T92 for the mission, so probably something like you mentioned happened.
