    The Bond Shop has finally arrived.

    15k bonds is pissy easy to get these days, most players who have been in the game for 4+ years will have gotten 5k last year and will get another 5k this year. Steel Hunter was sub 40 games for me to get to the last rank and that got me 5k bonds, so that is 15k bonds and a CW reward tank right there for just having an account for a long time and playing one event this year. Let's not even talk about farming bonds on tier 10, bonds from Frontline, Bonds from ranked (6-7k I think for reaching top rank, and even easier this season than last), bonds from premium account (25 daily), bonds from the 279e PMs as well. I think I worked out for events and missions this year someone just playing a lot could by the end of the year feasibly farm about 35k bonds alone without farming them on tier 10, so a real no lifer could be approaching 40k - 45k bonds, if you add the two improved equipment from the PvE mode, some people could be literally buying two CW reward tanks and able to pimp out both with a full set of improved equipment. Farming bonds when you want at your own pace pales in comparison to the effort needed to earn a CW reward tank in a month long campaign. So it;s not Elitist at all, its about people getting a hard earned, rare reward that now people will get through a much easier route, thus taking away the value of that original award. I chose M60 as my reward tank because I wanted a unique reward tank that was rare and I worked my ass off for it playing pretty much every night, all night, for a whole month, waiting around, getting shouted at by FCs etc. bleeding thousands of credits. If someone had told me I could farm some bonds in my own time and get the tank I wouldn't have bothered. It's a shitty move by WG, and it sets a precedent for all reward tanks to go this way, the other CW tanks, the Frontline and Ranked rewards, PM rewards, which will then completely undermine those modes if the reward is available in a much simpler way. There are plenty of options WG could have done for the bonds shop, hell they could have come up with a new tier 10 as a special bond shop reward without screwing over clan players. Both tanks are 'meh', and the 215b is downright awful, and the selection of premiums are all bad bar the Patriot and there are better options than that as well (like Cent 5/1), which is another issue with this bonds shop, not only does it piss off CW players by giving away their rewards, there is nothing in it to even interest them either.

    Periodic statistics now showing again

    Hello! This morning we had an issue which caused periodic stats to stop appearing. Long story short, server ran out of space again. This has now been patched up, bad records have been deleted and the cache cleared, and your statistics should again be appearing normally! Apologies for the short downtime and inconvenience. Cheers!

    I think you are missing the point that playing my KV-2 in a platoon with friends is fun. Its one of the very few things about this game that is still fun. Making the game 'better' while making it less playable seems to be a pretty common theme from WG lately. This very forum has (HAD I should say) an entire section dedicated to T-49 HE memes. What is the actual payback WG is expecting from this? Are all of the Hellcat drivers that rage quit the game after getting balanced by a 152mm gift from Stalin in 2015 going to reinstall? Doubtful. Is yet another sub group of players (derp gun aficionados) going to finally throw in the towel? Probably. This is another example of WG dev-team members that don't play the game trying to solve a problem that does not exist while ignoring obvious problems that would require actually learning the game meta to understand.

    Price aside, I'm heavily on the side of mechanically unique content not being exclusive to a mode or limited time exclusive. Non-mechanically content, fill your boots, but all this artificial scarcity, limited time purchase, or excluding those who cannot meet the requirements for reasons out of their control rubs me the wrong way.

    At the risk of sounding like a dick, I think the solution to this dilemma is to remember this is a haphazardly designed freemium game Skinner box where whatever you "earned" today isn't going to be "worth" anything tomorrow and act accordingly. Artificial exclusivity is just marketing bullshit.

    Figured I might as well make a guide for the contract missions on how I complete them most efficiently. Most of them become really easy when you cherrypick specific maps to play on. As usual, please don't take my word as gospel, remember this is all subjective. Daily missions: Can be completed on standard and hardcore missions, and all levels of Spec Ops. No shame in playing standard missions if you just want to get them done. Firestarter Start 10 fires. Just spam HEAT at everything. Aim for ammo racks, fuel tanks and engines if you're a tryhard. Sometimes you get random fires on your killing shots too, so you'd likely accidentally get this done without even trying. Use a Wilk and spam PELE. PREFERRED MAPS: -Snake Bite -Meltdown -Stormy Winter -Cerberus -Onyx Tireless Support Farm 5000 assist damage for 10 matches. Assist damage have different priorities: 1) designated targets, 2) de-tracked targets, and 3) spotted targets. This means if you de-track a target that someone else has spotted, you will then "steal" that assist damage. Likewise if you designate a de-tracked target. Be aware that others can do the same to you, so the best way to farm assist damage is to simply de-track everything yourself after spotting them. PREFERRED MAPS: -Snake Bite -Quarterback -Watchdog -Umbrella More Damage! Farm 10k damage for 10 matches. That basically means play 10 matches, if you're not racking up at least 10k damage in every single match at tier 4 or higher, you have bigger problems to worry about. PREFERRED MAPS: -Do you really need to cherrypick missions just to farm 10k damage? Cute animal break. Weekly missions: Can only be completed on hardcore missions and all levels of Spec Ops. Not that they are particularly hard if you cherrypick your maps. Support Fire Medals Get 5 Support Fire medals. Farm the most number of ASSISTS, at least 15, for 5 matches. This can sometimes be annoying, but it basically boils down to shooting everything at least once WITHOUT killing them. De-tracking and spotting damage also count towards assists, but that can sometimes be finicky. PREFERRED MAPS: -Snake Bite -Quarterback -Watchdog Destroyer Medals Get 4 Destroyer medals. Farm the most kills, at least 15, for 4 matches. There's no shame in holding your fire and killstealing, as long as you win at the end. PREFERRED MAPS: -Life Jacket -Watchdog -Meltdown -Spec Ops missions -Anything with enough bots thrown at your way for you to farm, but short enough so everyone else can't kill more than you do. Target Medals Get 8 Target medals. Repel the most damage on your team, at least 10 hits and 1000+ damage. Any MBTs with some degree of effective armor will work fine, just drive forward and get shot at. Try your hardest to not get destroyed, because the counter resets once you do. Easy to farm if you sit in front of an autocannon and let it plink away at you for as long as you want. PREFERRED MAPS: -Quarterback -Snake Bite -Any map where you can afford to sit at one spot and get shot at without taking (much) damage. Teamwork Medals Get 5 Teamwork medals. Just make sure nobody dies, for 5 matches. Can sometimes be annoying since pubbies love to kill themselves. PREFERRED MAPS: -Quarterback -Rolling Thunder -Anything short and easy to lessen the chances of pubbies dying. Blue Star Medals Get 5 Blue Star medals. Get top XP 5 times, you should be getting one at least every other match, if not every single match. In other words play 5 matches. PREFERRED MAPS: -None. Just farm your damage and win. Shooter Medals Get 8 15 Shooter medals. Farm 2000 damage, with at least 80% accuracy over 20+ shots. If you don't get one and you're playing something with a normal gun (no autocannons/missiles), you have bigger issues to worry about. Basically play 8 15 matches. Don't use autocannons or missiles for obvious reasons. PREFERRED MAPS: -None. Detonator Kill 5 bots by ammo rack explosion or fire, within the same match. Possibly the hardest or easiest mission depending on your luck. Yes, I said luck, because you NEED your teammates to NOT shoot at stuff that you've already set on fire in order to be credited for the kill, meaning you'd want your teammates to play poorly in general. Wilk with PELE is still my most reliable setup. Missions that allow you to fuck off somewhere far away from your teammates are ideal, since you don't want them having line of sight at your targets. PREFERRED MAPS: -Stormy Winter -Cerberus Marksman Farm 20k damage, fire at least 20 shots, with 100% accuracy and penetration with every shot. Can be annoying at high tiers because T-14, T-15 and Merk 4M APS can eat your shots. Best done at tier 8 or tier 6. Might be fairly difficult on Ricochet or Hydra or other "easy" missions, since they don't offer enough damage or targets to go around for everyone. Don't use autocannons or missiles obviously. AP shells might help if you are scared of composite armor and ERA. PREFERRED MAPS: -Anything that isn't too easy or short, so you can farm 20k damage. Total Elimination Farm 30 kills and assists combined. This is easier than it sounds, it basically boils down to shooting or designating every target at least once for the assist credit. You will also get credit for spotting damage, though that's not too reliable. Not particularly hard as long as you are dilligent in your target selection. PREFERRED MAPS: -Life Jacket -Watchdog -Any of the Spec Ops missions Perfect Streak Win 5 matches in a row, without you or your PLATOONMATES getting destroyed. The mission description is horrible, by allies it really means your platoonmates only. This means if you're solopubbing you'd only have to worry about yourself and winning. PREFERRED MAPS: -None. Doesn't matter, it's just about winning. Expert Tankman Get within top 3 XP for 10 matches. Just play 10 matches. PREFERRED MAPS: -None. If you haven't noticed already, a lot of the missions can be made easy simply by cherrypicking specific maps to play on. So here's a link to my rotation tracker thread: https://forum.wotlabs.net/index.php?/topic/28620-armored-warfare-pve-mission-rotation-tracker/ Also, I really hate those "do X for 10 matches" missions.

    The Bond Shop has finally arrived.

    It was about 24k bonds I think to get tanks on EU after the last campaign. Which is another reason it's stupid, I doubt many chose the M60 or 121b in the auction, but some probably did and potentially paid twice the price, whilst also had to play at least 5 games in the campaign (and those players likely played more). It's a d*ck more by WG but the masses lap it up because they get access to reward tanks they didn't earn, but they'll lap it up now, but wait until their Frontline or PM tanks go in for an easy amount of bonds, then they'll cry about it but it'll be too late then. It starts with the CW players who have the M60/121b but its clearly not going to stop there. I also have no issue with the bond shop in principle and if you want to put all new rewards in there as well in certain modes that is fine because everyone know where they stand, they can see they have different routes to get a reward tanks, but what you shouldn't do is move the goalposts after people have already worked for rewards.

    The Bond Shop has finally arrived.

    I gave Wargaming that feedback and posted about it in the forums. Having the price be 15,000 bonds for a reward tanks is ridiculously low. Last campaign, the winning bids in the bond auction were over 18,000 bonds on the NA server. I heard it was 22,000 or 24,000 minimum on the EU server, and over 30,000 bonds to win a tank in the auction on the RU server. The low price is a slap in the face by Wargaming to the players who improved their individual and team gameplay and worked to earn a tank. Selling tier 10 reward tanks gives players less motivation to grind for tier 10 tanks and less motivation to participate in clan wars. When you have that situation, players can stop spending money on gold to convert free XP and stop spending money on premium time and premium tanks. Then Wargaming makes less money and the game dies faster. The NA and SEA servers seem to have been in a decline in active players and clan wars players for a while now. I'm sure selling reward tanks will speed it up. Also, its another example of Wargaming lying to players when they said in their videos and clan wars campaign announcements in the past that you can only get the reward tanks in clan wars campaigns. I'm pretty sure its mostly marketing and finance that controls all of Wargaming's decisions and they don't care if the game dies faster on some servers as long as they get short term money.

    Getting 15k bonds in not nearly enough effort compared to a clan war campaign. It's a different kind of monster. Anyone can get bondas just by playing the game normally throughout all its events.

    HE guns are trash. They fuck everything up at mid tiers, where you have to make decisions like, "I can't risk going there because there's an M4 and shitters always have derp guns which will full pen me." Or, "I'd better not go anywhere risky because they have 2 Pz IVs and could literally get deleted in a single hit". Last night there was an E2 in the way and I'm playing the crappy tier 7 TD with 20mm of armor, so I can't go anywhere NEAR him or I'll get obliterated even though the E2 with the 105 is a joke. I had to just sit with my dick in my hand until some one else dealt with him even though he was one shot, because I can't take 410+ damage to plink a guy for 80. Same play session I literally got one shotted by a KV-2 snapshot at 500m+ on sand river, a few seconds after being lit. 800 damage. Guess what? We lost that game. One lucky roll made that game. The HE mechanics are complete garbage. This is the first run on sandbox, does any one really think their goal is to make the KV-2 do 150 damage and 3 damage on smaller calibers? They'll tweak it until it works passably.

    Sandbox: HE Shells "Rebalancing"

    Granted. I agree. But '''fun''' is a particularly subjective word. The problem exists, they are just shining too bright of a light on it. KV2 is fun. So is oi or SU152, delivering swift one-shots tiers 4-5 tanks respectively, even many tier 6-7. EBR are fun to play. FV4K5 one shots something, is particularly fun, most streamers I see burst aloud and smirk when they do it. Type 5 not aiming, dealing six hundred damage to a perfect side scrape VK45PB is funny, but the VK45PB having to aim back at it with APCR isn't fun. We need to keep in mind the subject issuing, and subject receiving. What is fun, getting what definitely isn't fun, judging what is fair and healthy. I believe they are trying to make things more competitive. By removing the walking sticks people lean on, in order for them to try to remain competitive. Arty, Type 5, FV, obj 268 V 4, Etc. Still don't know why no changes to MM or armoured cars

    Uh... yeah guys, you got 10 X5 bonuses for completing the damage missions for the Halloween skin. It's the same X5s you can get for WoT premium account. I stockpile those for horror grinds. Today it makes more sense just to exploit the daily X5s on different tanks. There was some other mission that gave out an additional 10 of them too, I think... you might actually check this and input one of the codes if you haven't already to make sure you got all of them. https://worldoftanks.com/en/news/missions/spooky-challenge/

    Watched Skill 4s movie, and oh how it has fallen. With every single chicken in the coup, able to buy it - expectations have mightily dropped. He had a single 4.5K combined game - and drove up his mark of excellence 4%, right to 93. Granted, there could be MoE glitching as there usually is, but nevertheless speaks volumes. This is the good side to CW reward tank availability, MoE will drop dramatically. While still being out of reach to the tater-tots who buy them, thinking they are bagging op TX tanks for their CW expeditions. (well 9O7/VK72/FV421 are and maybe available later) Not necessarily counting myself as one of these silly bunnies, I did buy myself an M6O too - but in my defense I have already -EARNED- 4 CW tanks on my own playing seasons.

    tbh both the 430U and 260 are more than good enough for it, its just a matter of patience even with the 268 v4 ur not gonna just magically get 10k combined out of the blue, its gonna take time for a game like that to roll around regardless of what u play

    By the same token, arty is 'fun', but no one on here will defend that. Diriz0n makes a good point - players getting annoyed when they get splashed by arty for whatever is the same feeling that players get when they get one shot be a derp 49. It's not fun, it's random as fuck and it takes away a lot of the skill element from the game. I'm not saying the changes are good, or thought out, or will work (other people will look into it in more detail than I have time for - i'll gladly read the feedback on this thread) - but saying 'don't take away muh derp 49' is not a reason to keep the game exactly as is.

    Don't get me wrong, I think George preddy / play4fun is as useless as they come, and a dimwitted ass. Tsavo isn't any fun either, the guy irritates me. Didn't see a thread over Garbad, never caught his interest? I'm a mad Garbad fan. Garbad, forever. I watch Uberdice content, he seems genuine. Don't know what on earth this clown sees bad about him. But this shitter, who obviously hasn't a fucking clue about world of tanks itself, spends his time attempting to start some trashy cult following about other users. This is the mere definition of defeatism, a retarded loser, who has no life to begin with, and is insulting others whom he apparently thinks has no life. Wth? All the while, ignoring the main focus of course, world of tanks. Which he sucks shit at. A big case of, --these guys are better than me, I hate them for it and want other shitty people (players) to hate them too--

    Pretty much in the same situation here. If I didn't already have the T95E2 or if I needed another US med crew I would be tempted for that and the skin. It really is a T95E2, with buffed maneuverability (due to Engine HP), the buffed cupola, slightly more alpha, and better AP and and HEAT pen offset by 100 less Hit Points, worse hull armor, and slower top end and reverse speeds. https://tanks.gg/compare/t95e2?l=000001&e=30.21.5&c=3.5.2&t=tl-1-lpc_000001__30.21.5_3.5.2

    Charts: What matters to you?

    Hello! So I'm currently in the process of revamping the charts, ditching Google Charts and going to something more modern and flexible. Along with this, I thought I ought to ask the community: What kind of information matters to you that can be put on a chart? Win rate and WN8, surely, but average damage? Average experience? What else should I drag up from your statistics and chart it out so you can see your progress? Cheers!

    British light tanks are vomit.

    Somehow I expected WG to be rational and add in FV 101 (90mm) as the tier 8 LT. Instead we have the "not FV 101" in tier 7 mocking us. Look at FV 101 (90) below. How can you say no to that? It looks so nice. You can also tell how much inspiration the Setter draws from FV 101.

    why are you mentioning me again? I can agree with rng, 25% across the board is just stupid and should be reduced (to different values, say 15% damage 10% pen as an example) along with dispersion. FL is not the proof of +1/-1 MM working (pubs are, but apparently you're too focused on tiers nobody gives a shit about, seriously, who cares about tier 3/4/5s apart from you?) FL is just the proof of WG's map design being ass. You have a map in which you can flank enemies and wreck them from different angles. 0 premium rounds needed, even for defenders/vks because you can get to their sides/rears pretty easily. You can abuse vision and camo (apart from the cancer spotting planes, which btw will be fixed with 1.6 according to WG), again, skill based gameplay. Also, I don't know if you've noticed, but people play FL to get insane amounts of credits and a completely broken tier 9 reward. Not because of the MM, because most t8 pub games now are full t8 and they're still cancer, mostly because of map design forcing you into corridors and bottlenecks against stuff that you can barely pen. Again, for the millionth time, +/-2 is not the problem, armour creep and shit maps are.
