  1. Hi guys, I'm an ex clan member of 322 from the EU server, returning after 8 years of absence. I was playing WoT in the ESL back then (that doesnt exist any more) and did FC in company battles a lot of times. I played a lot back in my college time but stopped after I got a gf and job. I didn't touch the game until last year when lockdown basically forced me to find some productive things to do at home. My old account is still existing (https://wotlabs.net/eu/player/givethemnothing), but after 8 years I forgot the credentials to the connected mail address... welp. Nothing of value

  2. EDIT 12/05/21 - All Alliance and Coalition tips completed, main intro guide done and some recommended tanks added. Still missing Bloc and Union guides in full. TBC whether added, as most people skip 2 lines. Shout outs to @sr360, @GehakteMolen, @CraBeatOff, @PityFool, @8_Hussars (maybe link your doc separately?) and @Ezz for contributions so far. Pleased to see this is a real community guide and not just my ramblings. INTRO I recently completed the Chimera missions, having been stuck - for 3 or 4 years - on a mission that required stun as a secondary condition. I just didn't care eno

  3. This is the last, last extensive guide I'm making. For real this time, I have some other threads in mind for content but not in this manner.. This isn't just for the players the title fits, but it's going to be focusing on these players and why they aren't improving and how to start doing so. For the sake of numbers, I will be using tier 10 for this, but everything applies to the game as a whole. Intro: Great, you're decent at the game. This is where things ramp up a lot in difficulty and where almost all of these players stagnate. Performance in this game

  4. I am grinding my way up the trees slowly because I three mark every tank I own, so haven't yet really started with Tier X - also since the gameplay in TX especially is really boring as compared to T8. The thing is that Tier X always was a campfest but nowadays due to the omnipresence of EBR, gold ammo and yet more autoloaders, the burst potential is so absurd that everyone is just waiting for the other one to make one mistake. Another thing ofc is the question, why play TX? I am going to eventually play them to three mark all, but they aren't really much more fun than T8 or 9 and you definitel

  5. Writing a pretty extensive topic on improving for higher level players (2000+wn8 above) but it'll apply to everyone, just that those people will comprehend it better. If there are any questions you'd like me to include, I will as long as the topic isn't finished by the time it's asked. This is a general improvement guide, so nothing map/tank specific, but larger concepts. (Improving situational awareness for example), if there are any: ask!

  6. This annoys me how this has been something people have said since pretty much I started playing early 2013. I guess it's kind of come true on NA, but on EU there's still plenty of people playing, including new players (bots at lower tiers scares me though). How have you adapted to playing tier 10 again? Do you like that the main yardstick to measure success has moved from W/R to DPG / marks? I remember back in 2013 to say 2016 or so that the DPGs people pull nowawdays were just pipe dreams, and anyone chasing DPG / WN8 / stats generally were frowned upon (especially here) as peo

  10. Damn @kolni, you're still pumping out great content for the community, and I for one really appreciate it. I think we all take for granted all the great stuff written years ago and how much there is (or was, at the time), and the level of effort that goes in to pulling something like this together. I hope it isn't your last serious content piece (there's still a lot you've got to offer, on more individual subjects like tank reviews, maps etc.), but if this is it a good way to go out. Looking forward to parsing through fully after work.

  12. I did the 279 missions last summer, so fairly close to the current meta. I did Coalition and Alliance as has been recommended here. Best skill tanks, best tanks for my skills. @sr360def helped me pick the tanks during the process. I cannot recall all of what I used, but I'll give my best guesses for some, and specifics when I do remember. Coalition 1: Any autoloader. Pick your highest kills/game and use that one. I have a couple that average over 2. I probably did this while grinding credits in the Prog46 or similar. Coalition 2: AMX 50B was my choice here. BatChat25t is good

  13. A couple things I can add Alliance 8 - Destroy 30 internal modules/crew. I made the mistake of thinking FV4005 or T49 for this... no. Take your Chimera and shoot HE. Aim for the sides of turrets, commander hatches, engine decks etc. This was probably the easiest mission I had, took me roughly 6-7 games. Any of the damage missions, Alliance 2 and 4 are the main ones if I remember correctly. I found this very easy to do with the T57 heavy, you have so much DPM and its an autoloader so you can pluck damage from nowhere. Highly recommended. Alliance 15 was

  14. I'll be more detailed later, but here's my bottom line on scouting missions-- There are two types of scouting missions: those which need BIG NUMBERS (e.g. Bloc-9, get a total of 15,000 assist damage in 10 battles) and which need a certain number of tanks to be spotted/assisted etc (e.g. Alliance-3, enable your allies do kill an average of 2 tanks per game that you have spotted). The problem is that the tier 10 LT meta is essentially dominated by the EBR. The Manticore and T-100 can have good games, but can you consistently get 10 games where you get good maps yet EBRs don't run aroun

  15. Ill give my 2 cents about blocking missions (in between wating for game to end if i die) you can cut and paste my text in yours, makes it easier to read i think Union-4, block average of 8 hits in 5 games (so 40 block in 5 games), this turned out to be one of the hardest missions, 8 hits is a lot (~3k blocked for a tier 10...) I first tried IS4, and did ok, but not close to completing, next i tried KV4, and while tier 8 is the best place for this, it also didnt work, so in the end i finished it with the 112, but KV4 should also work. Main problem is ppl tend to load HE if they cant p

  17. Disclaimer - This may not work upon the next update, this may not even work tomorrow, but I've got it working now and I'm not having any issues with it. Just don't blame me if you screw it up and end up having to reinstall WoT. Doing the following will allow you to launch the normal WG Game Center from Steam when clicking the "Play" button on your Steam installation, it should also allow Steam to update WoT for you instead of having the WG Gaming Center running in the system tray all the time (however, I can't actually confirm this until we get an update).

  18. Another good idea, just play a shitter tier 8 to get 3 ace tanks. I decided to buy back TVP TVU, put food, bounty stab, that reload perk thing and my skoda T50 crew on it (5.3 sec rld with 240 dmg, nice). First streak of 20 games, 2 ace tanker (and like 5 1e class...) second try i only needed 9 games to get 3 ace tanks (and got like 4 1e class also) i got good mm / teams, but i went rly smooth 1639 exp was my lowest ace, and thats with prem, so just over 1k base exp = ACE... All i now need is finish excalibur 15 with honors, to get my last needed token, and that is just a grind

  21. If you have a decent camo crew, that helps. Rammer, IRM, Optics (as you can't use vents or vstab). Use the camo directive as well - if you're like me, you have 100s you've never used. It has good camo values already, but the crew + camo directive + chocolate means you have basically light tank camo, and tier 9 does allow some vision abuse when top tier / end game. Generally play it like a leo or other bitch sniping meds. Because your gun is 1) sooooo accurate, 2) has insane APCR pen and 3) great velocity, you can basically snipe / brute force your way through heavies front on, from the se

  22. I'd honestly recommend the Wt auf Pz IV. I have 7 Top Guns in it and I think all 7 are since I played it for missions. I was averaging 2.22 kills in it, and the 560 alpha let's you finish off a lot of fairly high HP tanks that a 390 gun wouldn't, and it reloads about as fast as most 390 guns, which always surprises people. Outside of that, low alpha (e.g. Kpz) doesn't work great, so I'd go either of the Leos (Pta worse tier for tier since nerf, but better MM, and both have 420 alpha) or the E 50. E 100 would be too slow / inconsistent. For the main thread, i'll update the OP tonight.

  23. EDIT: Before my comments - GET A NEW TANK for those extra 5 battles of good MM. Good MM for t7 = fighting t6 and t5 tanks = easy top guns. Depends on how scummy do you feel? If a lot then Chi-ri and kill steal. I know not german but Japanese and German are both Block. If less scummy than Tiger I. Tiger I is a top gun machine.

  24. I agreed fully with everything you said.. but I honestly think the maps are worse than before. Almost all the re-worked maps are significantly worse than their previous versions. Fishermans bay is my favourite example, the old version was one of my favorite maps, now its a complete shitshow of one-sided bushes and no arty cover. I returned to the game christmas 2019, not expecting to play much, I had quit the game completely since 2015. But I've played about 6k battles since returning, my honest opinion is that in an overall comparison, the game is better today than it was back in the gl

  27. Okay, so surely they are going to nerf the premium tank's alpha. Surely. Because the proposed stats for the tier 10 tech-tree tank is supposed to be only 30 alpha more at 490 with the same 25 second clip reload and a marginally better 2.5 second intra-clip. Surely they cannot think that stats only marginally below what they are putting on a tank two tiers higher is going to be suitable at tier 8.

    How to t10 in 2021?

    Yeah I may have been tilted since I may have gotten bad rng and all my games were stalemates with few damage opportunities to them instantly crashing so I had to chase but ironically I've been doing best in the most passive t10 tank - the shitbarn. 4.9k dpg session was a bit silly

    How to t10 in 2021?

    There's your problem and your answer. I play more cautiously in T10 because you get punished much harder for your mistakes. T10 games are always packed with TD's and arty, especially FV/JPE spammers that are just waiting for their 1 pen per game. In the games where I'm not getting much damage early, patience usually pays off later on once the battle opens up a little and there's more room to move with less consequences.

  31. Im sorta destroying my stats (and sanity in some way) buuuuut, I finished 3 more missions, US and USSR bounce and US confederate, so all arty done and all bounce done I now focus a bit more on the french mission, 5x battle hero in 10 games, when i finish that one (i hope tomorrow or else friday), i will start skip last french mission and start working on the 15e mission. i got 2 medals now, and 9 games left, so will try it with skoda i think, with Liberte it didnt work at all. Then i only need to do excalibur 15, for my 7e token, and A: 2 1 ussr kill steal missions (did 1)

  33. Uni work officially submitted and only grammatical/small math errors that need fixing for a passing degree in data engineering.. so I've got a lot of time on my hands now. I decided to commit back fully, only playing tier 10. Tier 9 is still the same, 4kable- but tier 10 is very different since I really quit maining the game. I came back to check my level - and mark the new rewards (Chief was a bitch but 279 was fkn easy lmao no clue what that fuzz is about) and then AFK until I had some free time again usually for about a week every 2 months of stuff I can focus completely on things lik

  34. I'm not a purple player, but I am a pure solo player - so for what it's worth, in my opinion you'll likely stick with the old combination of Optics/Vstab/Rammer/Vents in many cases unless you want to try some funky stuff. Most tanks do not have good enough gun handling to drop the Vstab, but dropping the Rammer is viable on tanks where pure firepower isn't the be all and end all, or Optics if you have strong crews and also run food. Vents is more viable than before because it gets the bonus in any type of slot, so it's a good option if you're not using equipment from the 'specialised' equipmen

  36. Now that I'm back I really want to find time to update this, but it's a bit of an undertaking & I would feel a lot more confident about doing it with a unicum that could give input. I could also just post them here as I make them & gather some feedback that way. Either way it's going to be pretty slow, but Okeano did a pretty nice job with this and it deserves some TLC. I'm just stretched a bit thin right now so commitment to rewriting this entirely solo is probably not a great idea.

  39. I currently play at 1700-2000 WN8 and >55 WR depending on class and whether I'm stock grinding. I still consider myself very unreliable as a teammate, i.e. still a shitter. I use my own customised XVM scale file. I consider everything (well, teammates, at least) below 1000 WN8 to be unrated, i.e. irrelevant to the battle (grey). Everything from 1000 to 1500 is noob level. (dark red - red) 1500 to 1800 is 'probably contributing' (orange - yellow) 1800-2500 are good/okay players, depending on whether their WR corresponds proportionately. (green, teal, dark blue) 2500 and above unicum as usual
