  2. Should I bother playing the EBR 90? I have enough blueprints to skip straight to the 105, but am reconsidering. I'd mostly be playing to finish the first campaign missions.

    105 :

    +generally regarded to be a better tank tier-for-tier

    +higher HP pools at t10 should help with missions

    -t9 is best MM in game

    -105 seems more likely to be matched up against another EBR, whereas t9 has multiple popular lights

  4. Only one question, SU 130PM or Lowe? Now its time for new credit grinder. Wich of two is better as prem. Wich can carry harder? 520alpha or armor?

      @Private_Miros it should be great with camo and binocs,  plus crew with full camo, recon and situational awareness(crew from isu152). Only thing is i need to grind fresh crew for su 101. I was thinking to start with 6th, and camo, then bia, then recon/situational and so on. Or maybe i just retrain crew from 152, i dont like that tank, and idk if i have will to go for 704.

    3. ZXrage


      I'd run Rammer/GLD/Binocs. Rammer is no-brainer, but I want to reduce engagement time (from spotted a tank to shooting them) as much as possible so I run GLD. Binocs since you're usually standing still. A case could also be made for Rammer/Net/Binocs but I don't like it.

      For training I'd run camo, drop for 6th and still camo, then drop again for 6th and BiA then camo again.

    4. RedwoodOriginal


      @ZXrage @Private_Miros When think about it, GLD makes more sense to use it than camp net. 10% less aim time all the time VS 15% camo when standing still.

  6. clipping nerds for 1600 never gets old :trump: 


  7. Need explanation plz.


    WotLabs stats show stats in individual tanks for bajillions of games, but still only 330 "total". In game says about the same, 339 games. Wha?

    1. SkittlesOfSteeI


      cant you ask for an account reset but keep the prems. Pretty sure kolni did this 

    2. PityFool


      I ran into that exact same guy. His account has been reset, they let you keep the reward tanks and premiums.

  8. best way to pick up the EBR scouting role? I'm so unused to being so fast and literally being able to rotate however I want, almost always leading to overstepping in hopes of the enemy missing (which does happen, a lot)

    i wanna learn it to play it in competitive setting now that it has weeded out the batchat as spotting tool but diving right in there makes you lose every EBR 1V1 and do very little compared to the good EBR players. 

    I'm at a complete loss because this just doesn't click for me, any advice?

    1. Tman450


      mash WASD. congrats you win

    2. arceusdrago


      Muscles and DarkNinja (2 of the best EBR players on NA) regularly 1v1 each other in training rooms, maybe you could find a better EBR player to spam 1v1s against? 

    3. Private_Miros


      I'm being just horrible in the tier X one... I cannot hit anything, and it's so unwieldy when you are not driving around yoloing.

  9. Finally broke purple WN8 recent :)wMCpXBd.png

    yea WN8 is dead and my WR is still behind but im happy to reach a milestone

    1. hazzgar


      Don't worry WR is random lately. I'm at 57% despite pulling 3500-4200 wn8. 

    2. Tman450
  10. I'm starting to understand why do shitters enjoy the game despite their horrible performance. As I've been getting better (thanks wotlabs) I expect more and more from myself but while I'm not near any top purples I notice I'm satisfied with fewer and fewer results. 3800 DPG session in a JTiger feels meh since there were no monster battles there. I just did what I expected. A few 5-6k battles, a few worse ones but I'd probably be only really happy with a monster carry.

    On the other hand when I was a shitter even doing 3-3.5k in a t9 tank was a celebration. You are happy with less so it kinda makes sense shitters still play the game despite bad results

      I think the ``addiction`` of wot is that when you hit somebody, you see a number, the better you are, the more and bigger the numbers, so its a rat race (more or less) and you also play for yourself, to unlock new tanks, drive classics from ww2 etc (i got a ton of games in stuff like JP and KT, because i find them relaxing to play)

      So even baddies, who get crap dmg, just drive around, shoot people and once in a while they get a good game because of sheer luck (thats why the RNG will always stay, its so bad player can beat good players and highest winraito a triple unicum platoon can achieve is 75%, while even the reddest red will win 30%)


    3. hazzgar


      @GehakteMolen one thing I also noticed is some yellows and greens might even get more chances for monster games simply because they are useless early on and can carry against incompetent enemies while purples usually have a big enough impact vs bad teams that the situations where they are alone vs incompetent hordes are more rare.

    4. Tman450


      in conclusion, this game sucks. stay away.

  11. Patron Status Message, They said send a message to you.

  12. How not to hate the t92? It loses money, it bounces off other lights, it has no alpha and it's slow. FFS. 

    1. MagicalFlyingFox


      Not sure if it will make you not hate the T92 but you could try playing the Bulldog to remind yourself how bad it could be instead?

    2. echo9835


      I was about to say how bad the M41 is, but you beat me to it.

    3. PlanetaryGenocide


      Step 1. Pray for a good scouting map

      Step 2. Cry when you don't get it

      Step 3. Play something else


      as much as I liked it as a crew trainer for my T49... it's just not effective in about 75-80% of the maps in the game

  13. 7 kills in a skirmish. Something something seal clubbing.

  15. 1uGNMFN.png

    pretty okay considering i did it aiming with my left hand :serb:

      Normal one handed mortals play arty.

  16. I've excluded Glacier. I would rather play Paris.

  17. First non-Mashu max bond, wooooooooooooooo!


    1. MagicalFlyingFox


      Kiyoyo max bond, nice.


      Get Georgios and Herc to max bond, Georgios is one of the best things you will ever have for hard content because of his 3 turn taunt, high def and guts. His bond CE makes that so much more useful.

    2. orzel286


      >max bond

      >no h-scene

      My life is ruined.

      I don't think I've ever used Georgios. I think I only used stall teams once or twice...

    3. MagicalFlyingFox


      Stall teams are great for challenge quests.

  18. How would you guys buff the 121? I would:
    - buff gun stats on par to 430U (and keep the DPM)
    - buff gun depression to -6
    - buff terrain resistances to match 430U

    Nothing too wild but it would at least give it a different edge over the 430U

    2. Assassin7


      Id buff it by nerfing the 430U...

    3. lavawing


      Give it an ultra high velocity 122mm with 1.7k shell speed, 470 alpha and 430U soft stats. Buff gun dep to -7. Also 420 HEAT pen with half the shell speed.

      I'd do this and let it keep the 1k shell speed. 500m/s HEAT golfing anyone? :serb:

    Apart from picking your tank, drowning and jumping off cliffs are the only things in this game that you can control.
    Think about that for a second.
    Everything else is manipulated by WG.

    Without implying that all or even a majority of (sub)average players do this, or that no above average players do this, I do believe that generally lower skilled players are prone to drown themselves.

    Added to lower skill level is frustration about having no control about anything in the game (hence why they are (below) average). So the drowning and griefing is one of the only slithers of control they have over their actions in the game. For the rest they are just the playing ball of fortune, teams, MM and RNG.

    Kind of sad, but somewhere understandable.

    1. ZXrage


      I didn't know you get teleported to a random spot every 30 seconds, or that the damage you do to the enemy gets distributed randomly. Truly, the game is controlled by WG.

      I mean.... if we're talking on a shell-by-shell basis... :kappa:

  20. How bad is the stock grind on the Leo PTA? I spent all of my blueprints and free XP to skip the indienpanzer. Should I just safe another 60K free XP or suffer through a stock grind?

      Ok, Yolo and die once you get the 105. Thanks. :p

    3. SkittlesOfSteeI


      It would be funny if it got the same 90mm stats that the type 61 got but it's really just a sad gun

    4. hazzgar


      It's annoying for sure but with food and good amount of gold spam it is still doable. 

      Also with all the +100% exp reserves from battle pass and missions and extra weekend bonuses you will have the gun in no time. 

  21. First 3 mark! (that I actually tried for)


    I'm really thankful to the WoTLabs community for giving me the resources to improve myself, especially @kolni for his statement of trying for 'non-losing' gameplay, which helped me get my mindset into staying alive ^^

    2. hazzgar


      Aahh - high risk, high reward plays. Yeah. Not for 3 marking. 

    3. Private_Miros


      Yes, very well done! I do not feel I'm at that level yet.

    4. hazzgar


      @Private_Miros looking at your signature with stats on the pub forum you can probably do it tryharding with food + gold. 

  22. So what are the consensus best prems right now? 

    I'm a bit underwhelmed by the LT432 so what do purpls run?

    I am super happy with Renegade and Wz120 TD, Bourrasque seems really fun. Defender and IS3A are good but I assume purples would do better in more reliable tanks. Also Somua due to the gun being way better than any other FR autoloader?

      It shoots the ground a lot. The key is to shove the gun barrel into the enemy tank before shooting.

    3. sr360


      The Bourrasque is king. Progetto isn't far off. EBR 75 is insanely fun.

    4. hazzgar


      @sr360 i can't stand the wheelies and I say this as someone with 700 games in the T10 one. Driving wheeled tanks is just annoying with them bouncing off random stuff. 


      I Wish I had Bourrasque. For now I have to enjoy LT432/Renegade/Wz120 as my go to good prems. 

  23. LMFAO  WG random player names

      But that epic damage, though.... what happened? Stepped on a land mine? No - wait! Lemme guess:  Landmine stepped on you.

      Stupid artillery.

    3. NightmareMk9


      I slipped off the soap rock on Lakeville and took a bath.  I did get 900 spotting before I drown.

    4. BadLuckCharm


      Oh fer...  WoT is make out of soap stone. Inuit sculptors would be in heaven.

  24. Lol. The high risk spot play on highway literally breaks the map if u have enough td's. Enemy has to either forgo town or die. 

    11k combined in an LT432 is nice.

      @Snoregasm2 yeah marks % is not even what frustrates me. I'm on a low number of battles but the tank rarely gives you the feeling you are carrying or that you have a huge advantage. I get that it wins a lot but it doesn't seem as fun as it should. 


      As for tryharding - wait for a TD top of the tree and go for vision. 

    3. Kymrel


      I'm surprised you feel that way about the 432. It is a really good scouting tank, fast with good camo, has some armor, a bit of gun depression (bizarrely) can bully other lights and laugh when they shoot HE or even bounce off the front. The low alpha is annoying but the rest of the package is just soooo good.

    4. hazzgar


      @Kymrel I get that. I just don't know why it's not working for me. I'm at 2950 combined which is rather meh

  25. Finally 3 marked the tank that trolled me so damn hard. Leo you low roll machine. I love u even if u hate me

    leo 3 mark.JPG

    1. Kymrel


      Nicely done!

    2. hazzgar


      @Kymrel yeah the tank and me we have a love hate relationship. I went to 93.5% 2 times. went back to 88% and then I went from 88% to 95.4% in 3.5h. 


      Also vision build > Damage build. Games when steamrolls happen you can yolo for spot dmg and the extra dpg from vents wont make a difference. Also 3/5/7 games when you are top tier don't have enough HP to farm unless you literally have a team of morons and solo carry. With a few lights and td's on the team the HP pool is low and it's often hard to get over 4.5k dmg. 

    3. Snoregasm2


      Well done mate.

      Although I disagree on the vision build.

  26. Richie Lulu is get


    Oooooooh, I do have faith in those thighs!

  27. The Bourrasque is probably the closest high-tier equivalent I could think of to the old ELC AMX. Find a bush, unload your big dick alpha/autoloader burst, run away, rinse and repeat. Even has the same struggle of long range fighting.

    1. Deus__Ex__Machina


      i hated it at first but im starting to come around 

      the aimtime is cancer, but once you get around that its pretty fun tbh.

      averaging around 2600 dpg so far, really debating the bounty GLD tho. having both VR skills gets me 450 VR with food and no optics, but i like VR.  

    2. SkittlesOfSteeI


      What about the elc even 90 which as elc that takes 5 seconds. You can even do the stupid hide under their depression bit.
