  1. Today
  2. A S1 cheesewedge just tried to sidescrape out of cover at 40 meters from my IS-3A. Now I've seen everything. RIP S1.

  3. That's fucking it, every game I get a stupid tomato team, next one I'm taking out sky cancer

    1. hazzgar


      Just take t67 or something else that's balanced as shit in low tiers.

    2. simba90


      Take a KV-1 57mm out and spam APCR into everything while yelling "Beeeees"

      Guaranteed to make you feel better than playing a slot machine.

  4. Need some feedback on the following:
    1. How does the WZ11114 compare tier for tier to the 5A?
    2. How does the Standard B compare tier for tier to the Prog65?
    3. Is the TVP50/51 still relevant in today's meta? 
    4. Is there a best Tier 10 TD? Or are my WT4 and T30 sufficient for the personal campaign missions?

      1: they are nearly identical, but tier 9 has better MM

      2: standard B is better and has better MM, but the 65 is still good.

      3: everything about it is still good, but the pen holds it back in today's super-heavy/super armor meta

      4: for pubs? or for competitive? if for pubs then 4005,badger, E3, STRV. for competitive? the same excluding the 4005.

      and yes the T30 are WT4 (with the 128) are good enough for personal missions 

    3. hazzgar


      People underestimate the Tortie now. Corridor meta bitches. 4270 DPM on a tank with 280 eff armer. WT IV is great for campy maps but corridor meta and on campy maps STRV may still be better

    4. Assassin7


      111-14 is probably slightly better tier for tier but the 5A is still very good. The extra gun dep is nice as hell. 

      TVP is still good but feels slightly harder to get into good positions where you can get your clip off because the meta is just superheavy brawl meta these days.

      Ive done all my TD missions, got the T55A, and done half the 260 missions with the T30 as my only high tier TD, my next highest being the SU-122-44. So with a waffle to get the camosnipe missions done you'd probably be okay 

  5. Brought out the 5A for the first time. 3 losses to start out. 4th game: 6 allies afk. 

    1. sohojacques


      6 afk... should be a badge for that.

    2. hazzgar


      Had similar luck with 1114. Played as agressively as my t-10. Had 2600 dpg. 50% wr for first 30-40 battles

  6. Yesterday
  7. 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.

      IDK man getting the Chimera 15th missions with honors seems much harder than getting 3 1st class in 15 games. I'm thinking on spending my orders on some other stupid missions


    3. Deus__Ex__Machina


      they are nerfing all of the chimera 15th missions in the 1.4 update

      though i agree that the chimera missions are way to difficult for a tier 8 non-pref, non-credit making PoS. in fact most of the chimera missions are just copy pasted 260 missions if you read & compare them.

      but if you read over the 1.4 update patch notes they are nerfing quite a few of the missions

    4. hazzgar


      Yeah su100m1 will bounce everything you want.


      Also you can try something people don't think is armored and reverse sidescrape. T-10 works wonders.

  8. 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)

    2. 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...

    3. simba90


      stockpile food at 50% off and they pay for themselves

    4. hazzgar


      Tanks with no armor and mediocre gun handling really benefit from food. 

  9. Last week
  10. Does anyone know of a WoTlabs-esque progress tracker for Hearthstone?

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



  12. "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

    WoT 2016+

    1. hazzgar


      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.

  13. dark mode yet :(

      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.



    3. lavawing


      Tbh I doubt wotlabs is the place to promote your views on politics, whichever part of the spectrum you are find yourself on. 

    4. hazzgar


      @Folterknecht I don't think working with only one gender is a solution to bad atmosphere at work. You would have to be shit at observations not to notice both genders can be dicks. I understand some ideas for female only places for safety or specific culture (I doubt there is much place for looking for trouble at a gym).


      Also Folter you seem more catty than the stereotypical bad woman :D

  14. 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. 

  15. 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.

    2. Kymrel


      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!

  16. 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. 

  17. 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
  18. 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!

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

  20. Any rumors about future twitch prime offers?

  21. 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

  22. 47%. That stock tier 8 feeling...

    1. hazzgar


      Stock t8? Have you tried stock t9? 

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

    2. Wanderjar


      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. :(

  24. 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

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

    What a lad!

  26. 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

  27. 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.

    3. Bavor


      I've seen mixed results on SLI and crossfire in WoT 1.X, but I sometimes wonder if its an end user problem when it doesn't work.  Some say it works great and others say they can't get the game to launch.
