  4. OK, full stealth build is LEGIT. Just raked up an insane session with a full stealth WZ-132A for another easy 3 mark.

    Here's a sample game-- I uploaded this with my first try at commentary.

      @Balthazars The WZ-132A is not bad for the build. While the gun is much less usable, it basically leads to a different style of play/shooting. Whereas the 54LT can still do a limited run-and-gun due to its excellent stabilization even without a vstab, the 132A has an advantage in alpha. That led me to use my camo to set up shots for when I needed to. With use of double bushes and careful judgement of distance, in my last 25 games I averaged a little more DPG in the 132A than in the 54LT (1,473 vs 1,389). I also tended to take more kill shots because I can reliably take out <300 hp tanks (1.28 KPG vs 1.14), but similar assist (2,599 vs 2,423).

      I think 40% or so is the breakpoint. Beyond 40% you can really start doing some fun stuff.

      CVS in vision slot, iOptics, and low-noise is what I run the T49 with basically since I first came back to the game and it's fantastic.  Just have to actually aim a bit more, which is frustrating sometimes, but the point is that i can take the time to do so and then delete heretics like nothing

      Honestly, my only complaint is that I can't shove a turbocharger on somewhere.

      Also, your video - the in-game music is very loud and covers up a lot of what you're saying during the countdown, just FYI

       

      e: to add to the camo value discussion, this is what I get in the T49 with this setup, which I think is serviceable in 99% of situations where I'm up against another scout or medium provided i don't play like a dumbass

      Watched the video and enjoyed the gameplay. The commentary is decent but you have the volumes set up all wrong. The game sounds dominate far to much while your voice on the commentary is far too quiet. Good try, excellent content, but please re-align the voice volume as compared to the game volume. Looking forward to the next Youtude video. Thanks

      My favorite part of this is that the shell actually sent up and to the left of center slightly and barely clipped the back of this dude's turret.

      if it had gone dead center it'd have hit his rear sprocket or missed entirely, so now we basically have empirical evidence of whose side god is really on

  6. Today I did over 8.000dmg in my E50 and it was probably one of the most boring high dmgs games I had in years. Enemies just seemed to ignor me for most of the match. 
    Even I didn´t notice the dmg I did. When only 5 enemy tanks were alive I was shocked to see I had already dealt 6k dmg.

      That's how my highest damage game ever went too. M60 on Prokh, permapoking mid without arty and people just didn't respect my output and fired continuously. Game ended in 6 minutes and 12k damage and I never even got shot at

      It does transition into a more continuous storyline later on.

      But in the end people have different preferences, though having different taste than me is of course objectively wrong.

      Yeah I’m halfway through and felt that I could’ve started there and had the exact same amount of context which just doesn’t bode well in terms of me appreciating it
       

      Samurai Champloo sold me on the first episode though. Hiphop beats and fight scenes just hits different, good recommendation!

      Really enjoyed it all the way through. 
       

      Can’t decide whether the baseball episode is a work of art or the stupidest 20 minutes of media I’ve ever sat through though, ”retarded genius” is the only way I can describe it

  10. Last 150 battles: 48% win rate (dropped from 59.96 to 59.89 overall) and 1900 WN8 (down from 2600 recent for like 14 months - even my 60 day is for the first time in 10 years under my overall values...). I just completely forgot how to play... In every tank in every tier.

      When i started playing again, i could feel i lost a lot of ``skill``, fastest way to get back into the game (for me) was to play a lot of different tanks, go on maps to different points and in general camp like a bitch, to see how the game `plays` (i also watched soem streamers, dez and skill, to see where they go with certain tanks)

      On prok for example i changed my default game position to camp middle ridge, closer to the forest, and works great, and so on, on many maps im still sorta not sure where to go, but ill prob get there eventually (new maps would also help, since then everyone needs to relearn, giving me the advantage, hue hue hue)

      ps: so i`d say, play t8 tds, or middle tier medium / light tanks (t6 /t7/t8) to get the hang of maps, and ofc, done play tier 10, tx suks dik...

    3. Private_Miros

      Private_Miros

      It's just every single game, I take an aggressive position and the enemy yoloes; I take a defensive position and I get no shooting opportunities. I never make the right call anymore.

    4. GehakteMolen

      GehakteMolen

      hmm, then i`d say, stick with 1 or 2 tanks, you like (and which are sorta meta) and only play those, eventually you should ``get the hang of it`` again. And remember why u died and more important from where. On many maps key positions greatly changed, spots which where awefull in the past are all of a sudden now powerfull, and vice versa. Even now, im some maps i still have no clue where to go (say Cliff with 3 arty and tier 9 heavy in a tier 10 fight).

  11. To the top purples here. Did you ever stop feeling bad? I've been a 3100wn8/61% wr player. Dropped to 57%/2700 and climbing back up but I feel like a total scrub.

      @kolni Bipolar or Borderline would make no sense. My GF has one of those and I always forget which but that's exactly what you are talking about. If you had ADHD the main issue is following through on things. As in you know how to do a thing. You know you should do it but you don't do it unless there is a strong stimulation associated with it (fear/stress are most common). Since I know there are things I could excell at if I didn't have adhd but since I have I have to limit myself to shit that stimulates my dopamine deprived brain - mostly analyzing the shit out of stuff (who though excell could be stimulating), extreme sports and anything that requires quick decisionmaking under process. SO I'm a good analyst and an organizer but tell me to train for something in regular time intervals? Fuck that shit. I will go as far as my talent allows. Thank god I'm not stupid since I can't imagine what it must feel when you're of average inteligence and have the same dopamine low.

    3. kolni

      I have huge concentration problems when things don’t interest me (pretty much anything that isn’t area that I’m not naturally good at). WoT is a huge outlier in that regard, but it was mostly out of curiousity to try it. Not worth the effort in the long run. 
       

      the thing is especially with mental disorders that when you have several is that they get much harder to investigate, double time if they are conflicting. You can attribute an indicator to something but there’s also one on the other end, seemingly canceling it out but it doesn’t work like that at all. It’s just a very intensive roller coaster from one end to the other end. It makes a diagnose very hard to find. First they thought I was just unbelievably depressed and chalked it all up to that, but further in (5 years later) they started evaluating other possibilites and I responded to those treatments much better. It’s honestly just an assumption made by my doctors but that goes for every mental disorder. ADHD treatments are the only things I respond to even remotely positive so the procedure is basically ”if it aint broken…” 
       

      It’s very annoying to feel ”everything bores me” along with being obsessive at the same time. 
       

      it’s entirely possible that there’s something different, but with the current tools available it’s the best answer they could come up with

      there are two different types of bipolar which is basically the same disorder but with entirely different symptoms, it’s a pretty interesting read and a fairly ”solved” disorder due to how effective the medicine for it is considering the gravity of the disorder

      the easiest way to describe borderline is being completely ruled by your emotions, a very common trend is threatening suicide to strongarm people into getting their way which is all kinds of problematic 

    4. hazzgar

      hazzgar

      The thing is even with several disorders you will have certain traits that either qualify or disqualify you from something. ADHD is basically too little Dopamine. You can't get over it with OCD. 

       

      Though the rest of your symphoms sound like ADHD so maybe you just phrase your "things I'm naturally good at" wrong and maybe you're good at what you can concentrate at. AS in its the other way around you may be talented at many different areas but those are the areas you can concentrate at and work at so they feel like the areas you have the most talent in. 

  12. 8 Battles, 2 Wins

     

    Typical day for me @_@ 

  13. Seriously fuck my brain. I have ADHD but my brain doesn't respnd to Ritalin/methylphenidate and I get fevers from Atomoxetine/Strattera so the only thing left is Adderall/Amphetamine. The thing is it's illegal in Poland. So I've been sitting for the past 5 hours not being able to work nor decide what youtube video I should procrastinate too. Maybe the 4th coffee will do the trick.

    1. kolni

      kolni

      Amphetamine has the nasty habit of making the substitutes completely worthless in comparison. Especially the 74% sulfate, it'll ruin any chance of the med-grade stuff ever having the intended effect with regular use. It's pretty much the only thing that works for me as I seem to be incredibly resilient towards medicine in general. I can take double dosage of adderall and two cups of coffee and be sleepy an hour later. It kinda sucks as my brain just won't allow any activity that is the slightest bit tedious without it

    2. hazzgar

      hazzgar

      @kolni my problem is high dosages of Ritalin are making me tense so they have a stimulating effect. Just no dopamine boosting effect. I will stay away from clear amphetamine though as it's very hard to control it (the quality plus getting a doctor who will have no issues with monitoring you). 

       

      Overall I'm also resistant to drugs but some stimulants make me very tense and tight chested just because 34 years of untreated adhd mean I have GAD as well.

  15. Kill me. I hate the o7. 1600 dpg. This thing is trash. The camo doesnt exist. The alpha is trash, the shells too slow. He is not to be counted on. I hate it

      Thread got locked due to toxicity.

  17. Does the AMX 30 always burn from small caliber frontal shots, or am I just unlucky as hell with 4 fires in 5 games from shots of Kpz 07s and Progettos without prior module damage?

  18. I just realize KPZ o7 prem shells cost 4400 for 200 dmg. Aren't FV4005 8000 for 1750?

  19. Any hiden gem tanks people found recently? Need a change of play and I noticed with equipment 2.0 some tanks make sense once again so I'm curious.

      That's a fair setup for doing damage. I've accepted my poor aiming skills, age and poor hardware limits. So i instead work on making pubbie permalit and punishing transitions.

      I'll post some replays very soon. @sr360 is using his prodigious intellect to see if i can record some voice commentend replays. Barring that I'll do some write-ups with replays

      I see we are in the same boat but you hate lights when I love them. I think someone started abusing me and brought families into the equasion so I just took it to the logical conclusion. He wasn't happy since apparently you can only insult someones mom when she's alive.  (Also I was kinda praising her so how was that an insult? )

    4. hazzgar

      hazzgar

      Ah yeah. That is true. It seems like in the last year people lost all their accuracy and I often get teammates with 10-15% acc.

  21. Just watched the HE rework video for common test.

    The takeaway is that you should either get really really good at hitting engine decks or other thin armor with your hilariously humongous aim circle in the T49, or get really really good at getting pens consistently

      I might consider rebuying the Centurion 7/1 because the HE rework is a gigantic buff for the HESH. I tried it on the HE test server and you can easily pen sides / track+dmg with HESH now.

      As for T49, it is much more reliable against paper tanks and worse against heavies, also hitting tracks only does zero damage now. So in the end it will be more pens as well as more 0 dmg hits.

    3. sr360

      sr360

      But the T49 is getting an accuracy and gun handling buff, and the bounty IAU was a major upgrade for it. Pens are actually easier now to get.

    4. PlanetaryGenocide

      PlanetaryGenocide

      yeah, I need to go give it a whirl on the CT server

  22. Before I equip the 279, is it a tank that needs Improved Config? I've heard it gets ammo racked a lot, and I noticed Daki runs that in randoms (and uses Hardening in competitive games).

    I've got the other 2 slots as purple Rammer / V stab, but again, is it slow enough to drop V stab?

    2. sr360

      sr360

      I think that's a decent start. I used to run iVS/iRammer/iMod Config for randoms, then got pressed into service for CW and was asked to put hardening, and then just left it as such.

    3. kolni

      kolni

      I made do marking it without config, I just hade to save repkit for racks instead of repairing track to get the extra shot off

      I did rammer, stab and hardening

    4. GehakteMolen

      GehakteMolen

      i went with rammer / stab / hardening, however track repais seems suprising slow, so perhaps hardening would help with that also (so far my driver dies more as ammo so for ammorack its not that bad)

      ps: HE rework should help this tank a lot, that seems to be main weakness (met an E3 and 60Tp head on, it didnt end well for me...)

      It's very possible that it's the worst tier 9 tank in the game.
      Some of my irl buddies were grinding it, and their (very loud) suffering on discord made me skip it entirely.

      If it's worse than the tier 10, I'm really glad I never played it, now my only regret is moving up from the tier 8.

      I have had some impressive loss streaks these last few days, this tank is currently sitting at 49% winrate for me.
      Don't think I have ever seen so many 15-0, 15-1, etc. games in such a short amount of time.
      In the first 15 games the other day, I had four 15-1 losses, no hyperbole, I use wotnumbers to track my battles.
      There's also been a few 15-0 wins and a lot of those 15-5 ish games going both ways.

      Games have simply been too fast to make the tank work for me, hope it will get better when the game calms down a bit.

    3. hazzgar

      hazzgar

      The Marathon makes people take more risks. Some pub forum dweebs even say they don't care about the result. My bourasque suffered because of that given it lacks the DPM to work when the team colapses or when someone yolos you and your teamates are too busy eating crayons. Though yeah my Kanonen or whatever its called sits at 40%... 2k dpg, which should probably get a bit higher but still 40% is a bit bad. 

       

      On the other hand weird tanks started to work. Jgzilla? BC25AP. 

       

      PS. IS it only me or is the WZ120TD from t8 (the prem) out of meta? It feels horrible to play now but maybe i forgot how to play it. ANd i remember it being stupid OP. 

    4. CandyVanMan

      CandyVanMan

      Rebought 13 90 for some missions, and because it's a nice tank, averaged about 3,5k assist and 80%+ winrate, switched to T49 after getting missions done in 13 90.
      It was like a switch flipped, spotting entire teams in the open, in best case scenario, I would get 1k assist.

      I've seen some shit in this game, but the last week or so, nothing comes close to all the weird shit, and soooo many 15-0, 15-1...

      In 10 years, I have never had so many bad streaks, that I simply couldn't do anything about.

  27. Still struggling to do more than 1k damage in tier 10. Either I am careful and the team dies and I get nothing to shoot before being swarmed, or I am agressive and the team camps and I get swarmed faster without being able to shoot much.

  28. Why the fuck is Mines still allowed at high tiers?

      Mines is cancer. Only worth playing in lowtier.

    4. Snoregasm2

      Snoregasm2

      Yeah the problem is Mines isn't worth banning due to how shit some of the other maps are, plus you have to turn Encounter off.

      I couldn't even ban it when I did have Encounter off and I was doing scouting missions for the 279, as I needed to ban Himmels and Ensk.

      Minsk is pretty much a perma ban unless doing scouting, and right now I have Overlord banned because it's so inconsistent/team dependent. I did have Airfield for a long time, and I sometimes ban Abbey. All of those allow you to play Assault / Encounter still.

      Mines would be after those 4.
