  1. I've refrained from posted my opinion on this as it half of each Antonio and Crab's opinions and is anything but neutral however I wanted this thread to run its course. One thing I will say is; this is not a Wargaming forum, we don't share Wargamings expectations for our forum community. Stop reporting peoples posts because they hurt your feelings. My moderators don't give a flying fuck, in fact the reports section contains most of us laughing at the people that are reporting posts for having thin skin and being little bitches about it. This place is for reasonable discussion, and in my op

  3. I think we're sufficiently off topic now that I am going to lock this. There will be no fucking discussion of capital punishment. Allurai or someone who outranks me can unlock this if folks want to talk about the contest, Alphyn, etc. fair enough. it was getting a bit spergy. ~allu

  4. Echelon's idea of "dropping" Alphyn reeks of the uninformed. We cannot drop Alphyn, PUPEH is not our subclan. Even if Ziddy had the power to simply throw the leader of another clan onto the streets, what good would it do? Do you honestly think that's going to "repair the damage" done by Alphyn? The damage he has dealt was not to us. It was to the entirety of fucking organized play. Ever since this incident, I've heard nothing but "CW is rigged" "Events are rigged" "Why even try?" "Big clans are gaming the system, man.". You want this damage repaired? Talk to wargaming, not us. So thanks fo

Before I start, I realize what I’m doing could get me neg repped into oblivion, but I feel that this is the best place for an actual discussion of this topic…not a trollfest as was evidenced on the Wot forums, as I am actually curious to see where people stand on this and why. I’ll start with my own view of the M60. I honestly believe it was a mistake for WG to make the M60 a clan wars reward, if I’m being honest it’s most likely because I can’t do clan wars atm, and would love to add this tank to my collection. On the other hand making a tier X premium available in the giftshop or ingam

    Seems good so far. I'm actually having an easier time in my SU-14-2 than pre-8.6. Yes the aim times are longer, but as was pointed out, fully aimed accuracy is much better. This means that people that know where to point their gun ahead of time are going to clean house, while your typical arty scrub will probably be flailing all over - and I'm fine with that. Good players should be able to use them well, not baddies looking for easymode action. Hitting fast movers now is... well, yea. Barely worth trying, which is how it should be, IMO. What this patch looks to be doing is culling larg

On top of that I went to the cafeteria for lunch so I could come back and read the latest KingAlphyn thread. Veggie lo-mein. Serves me right to sac food for rubbernecking. On the plus side, my mid-term for Java isn't up yet so their ain't no party like the 8-6 party cuz the 8-6 party don't stop. Yikes.

  20. Man... that's the last fucking thing I want to see aired on tank forums. As for the punishment, I think it was appropriate as both a response to Alphyn's posts after the fact (saying he'll pull a repeat performance, etc) and as an example for others, but I'm pretty sure all it's gonna do to riggers is make them a bit more careful about it. Nothing will actually change.

  21. it won't make 100k profits, but even making a 40k profit easy in a fun tank is the tits. the SU-122-44 makes 30k pretty easy, and that's a TD. As a medium you get spotting damage etc. The T-44A is going to be an easy buy for me. Russian medium crew trainer and print credits? yes plox.

Back then being a sub 55% scrub, you acted like the shit and used your PBKAC tag, a clan that you did absolute shit for, as backing to lecture pubs on win rate. The one time I platooned with you, you talked so much shit about stats with no provocation that I thought I got RO'ed the next day, when WoT chat was messed up, for just being in your platoon.

  28. Hey, I've been lurking in the WoT forums for my past 3k games or so, and it's really nice to see a place like this pop up. It feels a lot smaller and less more comfortable than the forums, and I also see a lot of the faces (actually, all of them) responsible for writing the guides I spent those 3k games reading. The majority of you are the reason I'm not still a 48%er with <700 eff, so thank you. I hope I can get the chance to platoon with some of you (I've run out of friends better than me ) in the hopes of being less bad@tanks, so don't be surprised if you see me poking around the Forum W

  30. http://redirect.wargaming.net/WoT/latest_patch_na Grabbed eu's patch file and switched, "eu" with "na". I tried this earlier, but the patch file for eu and ru started with, "86", and na started with "85". It has since updated to 86 (As in, "0.8.6"), so I think it might work now. To install: put it in your c:/games/worldoftanks/updates folder, then open WOTlauncher.exe, and an update should start. NOTE: I'm not 100% sure this works, as I have done no research into it, and have never ever tried this before. I will try this. If it works, it will have application in future p

  31. I agreed with the principle then, and now. I didn't agree with the methods then or now. In fact, I am still conducting a war on bads on the forum. The difference is, I've never been RO'd for it. Similarly, I agree with the fact that WG screwed up how they worded/phrased the rules. I don't agree with how KA chose to demonstrate that screw up.

Awareness. Honestly, for me, as a player who is admittedly garbage at scouts, some of the best help I've gotten on situational awareness has come from games in my Locust/T2 Light/T18. While they are seal clubbing tanks, and I fully admit, they are all tanks that can very easily be dismembered in an instant if you aren't careful with positioning. Yet with solid positioning, they will ravage a team. There was a poi

  36. Yesterday, I ran with a few WoTLabs forum folk in some pub battles. In trying to help them out, without being too much of a dick, I came across some stuff I thought I'd share with the community. Names shall not be named, but they can feel free to step forward to add their own insight, or PM me to correct any wildly wrong perceptions I might have. First, I play with Encounter on, because I generally have fast tanks (lots of light tanks), I like how it changes the map dynamics, and how the cap is slower than standard. Because of this, I see some maps more than others, luckily they happen to

  37. Just started reviewing and I'll post my thoughts one game at a time. Apologizing in advance if I may sound blunt - it's much more time efficient for me to call it as I see it rather than sugar-coating my words. Also, I won't be talking about the majority of mechanics (like aiming, leading shots, angling) unless they're relevant because that only comes with practice and experience. Game 1: Going up the hill - your pathing was too wide. It's unnecessary exposing yourself to risk when all you need to do is hug the right side as you approach the castle.

    Why I don't like the M60 reward method is quite simple, and also something most people disagree with me on. They just made getting a reward dependent not on knowing how to play the game, but on having the right friends. Granted, good players will generally refuse to play with bad players, and will usually allow other good players into their circles... but if you want to reward good players, reward good players, not players with 14 good teammates who happen to almost all be good, but if one of them is bad, WG still gives that player the tank along with the good players who carried them.

    I almost would have rathered that they ahd set up the campaigns to reward "Victory coins" to members of ranking clans. Each amount that the member received would be based on how they were ranked , with the top ranked clans receiving more per member than the bottom ranked clans (there of course would be clans that do not get ranked as an incentive to play at the top of thier game, but most would). Then at the end of the season a "store" would open up and allow you to spend the Victory coins on whatever it is that you want, between an offering the 3 Tier x's, premium time, free exp, etc... With
