    https://www.dropbox.com/sh/h8ce4iz2arafhzg/AADN3AJSR8cwHZDUO2ZcukGOa?dl=0 > replays, they are nothing special (just me figuring the udes' numbers out and trying to get comfy with siege again tbh) but it's the first time i'm playing a swedish medium and it just wound up feeling pretty natural so here's to hoping i can keep the development up at this pace

    anyway this is me trying to test the numbers´and "learn" as much information about the tank as possible and drawing conclusions so the gameplay might look weird at times but everything but the mali death was pmuch intended, 

    really felt like an easy time every game,, but i can't for the love of god figure out the shell velocity? is it fast.. slow? it is terribly unreliable as of now for me, really nice tank to play tbh all things considered

      idk, the shell sound upon hitting reminds me of the hitting things with AP/APCR in arty.

      That tank would be beast with a higher pen HEAT and a bit better shell velocity.

      Damn. I'm a t8 in Jap line and T9 in Swe. Now you make me question wanting to go for Kawaii tanks

    4. MagicalFlyingFox

      MagicalFlyingFox

      STB-1 is a better tank, don't worry.

       

      The UDES 15/16 is just kinda fun because of its alpha.

  5. New account and for some stupid reason struggling with HT-12. What tanks currently still work for the mission ? VK1001p is no longer getting shot at so even if it wins it doesn't bounce.

      I had some recent success with the VK-4502B at tier 9. You can even drag your crew over.

      Are you being too effective with your armour usage on the VK? I just got through several bouncing missions with it. Nice thing about box tanks is you can bait shots by giving pubbies a sniff at penning you (unlike T29, etc), then leaving it to rng...

  6. I just realized you can see who shot the turrets in Frontline. Good opportunity to thank the window lickers who leave 11 minutes on the clock and get me stuck at Lieutenant. Common reply, "I have to, you farmers make us lose."

  7. So. You get Province at higher tiers now. Brilliant.

      Province up to tier 7

      So not high tiers then.

      I had this thing banned right after it came back, it's literally just as bad as the original. I unbanned it reasoning it was only tier 2-3 anyway, and immediately got stuck there in a tier 7. It's an abomination, at least the old version was low tier only.

      @kolni is the tank as good as the PTA and Standard B?

    3. kolni

      kolni

      above standard b but below pta

      it's an E6 at tier 9.. but good and well balanced

      you kinda have to play it perfectly for it to like.. work at all in the first place it seems, you can't have attention directed towards you, you just play and quietly heatspam your way into making their push into you not so good anymore 

      if you get spotted people just pay too much attention to you to let farm them for free, so i track meme ppl every game, nobody beats you in a straight up DPM war, and nobody beats your 6s+ 360 rather than 320 alpha combo when it comes to permatracking -> just do it and use a corner to make them unable to shoot you back,  dgaf about arty and just farm down whatever's free until the game opens up and starts letting you make choices that aren't just answers to the enemy gameplan, something that generally won't happen naturally in this tank

      either people are going to try and combat you or not, and it just feels that way in this tank to the extreme - some times this tank is so broken i can't believe it as you genuinely can outmaneuver tier 10s on flat ground in your TIER 9 and win DPM fights even with first strike on the enemy side and a tier 10 HP pool against you - but then there's the other side of it which is where you just can't commit anywhere without risking your game on it or where your team won't let you farm because you made the call of hanging further back etc. this is by far the most passive medium in the game i think

    4. kolni

      kolni

      360 alpha lines up really nicely with the tier 10 medium tank HP pools too so you get pretty confident in one tier 9 against one tier 10 situation, and some pretty insane carry pants here and there

  10. I unlocked the Char Futur 4 and holy shit the gun is good. The camo is 33.41 stationary, 25.78 on the move with BIA and vents but no food/directive. The 4 second unload is something you really do have to work around.

      @Kymrel yeah, the magazine reload is a bitch. A shorter burst more often would be a good change. To late now tho.

      @kolni The standard pen is so great I haven't even touched the gold shells yet, but thats good to know.

      I think its a good side grade from the BC 25T AP. You trade unload speed and magazine capacity for penetration and a slightly faster reload.

    3. HowitzerBlitzer

      HowitzerBlitzer

      I haven't played since 2017... France got new tanks? wow

       

      also I read that as Char Futa 4

    4. echo9835

      echo9835

      @HowitzerBlitzer That sounds... disturbing. 

  11. Is current frontline meta - u defend u get steamrolled or did i get a string of idiotic teams ?

      Balthazars

      Seems a bit like it, on defence it seems like get rolled and desperately try to rank up by spoiling cap as long as possible unless the attacking team is just completely awful. I dunno, but it feels like all of the changes made it easier to attack, and given the size and layout of the maps, attackers running wheeled or lights can very easily change zones to create overloads which defenders can't do.

    3. Jesse_the_Scout

      Jesse_the_Scout

      Defense is horrible. People change flanks and just flood until you're getting hammered by a train of 2 to 1. It's the single biggest problem with the mode, I've been considering just leaving games where I get defense.

    4. hazzgar

      hazzgar

      Yeah I had games were like 3 people had captain and rest were below. Like 5 games in a row

  12. Has LT432 always been this cheap? With tank reward cupons it costs next to nothing

    1. Snoregasm2

      Snoregasm2

      Definitely worth a buy if you can afford it. Best tier 9 light in the game.

    2. hazzgar

      hazzgar

      Got it for that reason. 20E for it is good.

  13. wHAT YEAR IS IT

      Private_Miros

      2019 or 2021, not yet decided. All I know 2020 is in the time out corner until it learns to behave.

  14. Is  IS6 any good in this meta? Or should i just go with wz T8 prem TD, and it hope doesnt get hit with nerf bat?

      @RedwoodOriginal WZ is a better tank. Lowe makes better money. If you say you are bad now think if you are worse hull down and sidescraping or playing vision games? For Lowe just watch out for the below mantlet weakspot.

      Best just watch Skill/Circon/Orzy/Iyouxin in both of those tanks.

  15. Hilarious, known shitter/whiner about how everyone better than him is only so because cheats and premium ammo (yet who has received a warning for cheating himself by WG in 2016):

    When WG stop making money from these players who use illegal mods, then they'll take action. But so far from what the video's suggest of people caught cheating, is they almost always use premium ammo. Far easier to say they've banned a load of people that no one knows or heard of than to actually take action. As they say, denial is far cheaper than the cure!

    Anyways, towards the end of the battle, I got a pop up saying I have been logged out because I have been banned. I mean, the most annoying part is, I was doing really well & about to turn to tide of the game to a win. Anyways, I contacted support & even gave them the video of me playing the game I was apparently cheating at, that showed the pop up box saying I was banned & asked them to point out at any part of that video or my previous 3 I had made today where I was cheating.

  16. WTF WG, if Frontline started on 25 May, why am I only seeing a reminder in the client on 27 May FFS??

  17. Help.

    Accuracy.

    Is this still correct?

      Wanderjar

      yup. It's still good. it was valid as of Jan when I re-tested the numbers. the only time I think it will really change is when Crew/Equipment 2.0 hits tbh but we'll see. I do recheck at least every 6 months if not sooner when a major patch hits

    3. Wanderjar

      Wanderjar

      also: the post/pic he references is correct but he doesnt have the full picture. the formula is correct but when the RNG selection falls outside the ring (the game renders it as a square) then a flat placement takes effect over the sigma formula

    4. Wanderjar

      Wanderjar

      for some reason it didnt email me when you commented on that. odd. I'll have to fix it. (edit: fixed. for some reason wotlabs had me unfollow all my posts cuz raisins)

  18. Scratch my vk1001p opinion. Too slow to make plays and the armor only works against morons.

      The concept is good, just that there are tanks with equal amounts of armour that go twice the speed.

    4. hazzgar

      hazzgar

      @Balthazars not even that. The tank is too slow and bad at pushing vs competent players. It's good at stopping attacks but not attacking and I usually stop attacks via dmg not just being a big rock.

       

      Also I got it for ht12 on new acc and every time I get that 5k blocked I dont get the damage when I get 3-4k dmg games no one shoots me.

  19. Cda 105 or Kanonen 105?

      The Kanpanzer is a pretty good TD. CDA looks similar but none of those is the Chinese doorstep of doom which is the only nonturreted TD worth a damn. 

    3. echo9835

      echo9835

      pretty  much. Some TDs have big boom, some have fast pew pew, doorstep go boom boom because balance. Ironically the only Chinese TD worth a damn

  21. Earlier
  22. The game is overrun with bots now. They're more subtle than they used to be, they move and shoot. The only way you can really tell is if you watch one closely; they move their turrets mechanically smooth. Sometimes you notice them because two of them (not in a platoon) will both take the exact same route and then sit against a wall, even when that route leads them to some corner no one ever goes. Add it to the list, I guess.

      We had a recent run on the Asia servers where you’d have 6-10 bots per side in tier 8. Each team‘s bots would gather  in a random location on the map and mill about like a herd of lost sheep. Led to some epic farming.

  23. premium low tier XP bonuses are OP as fuck.

      And they’re not over represented in the queue either like EBRs, 430Us, Chieftains, etc are. Why nerf tanks that pubbies aren’t bitching about and aren’t having an adverse effect on the game? The only tank in the Itai line deserving of the bat is the 46.

      tfw 270/280mm 'weakspots'.

       

      Not that I'm firing standard rounds anyway at tier 10. This is the ASIA server, what is standard?

      ISU with BL-10 was awesome, in current game it will prob suck, but who knows

      its a crappier ISU in every single way apart from 26 pen.

      ISU-152 got 200 extra HP when the BL-10 got removed. It was a good trade.
