    T110E4: King of 8.6

    I’ve only played 10~ games on this account, but I’ve played around 18 to 20 other games on other accounts in multiple different patches since the T110E4 was first released, so I have "some" experience. I'll be adding more to this as I learn more and more about the tank. Right now I'm still experimenting and haven't finalized anything. By the end of 100 games though, I anticipate at least 5000 DPG. http://www.mediafire.com/?3d5mbgduoh1b6e6 http://www.mediafire.com/download/87kssz77hrd0ihd/20130705_1312_usa-T110E4_60_asia_miao.zip

  2. BiA and Vents offer the same bonus, so if you like your tank with vents before BiA, and you don't want everything overall to improve a little, but would rather have one stat improve more considerably, than drop the vents. Otherwise, Vents and BiA will stack and make everything on your tank a little better, but nothing a lot better. Here is a look at the VK 3601, since you didn't specify which 3001 you were talking about. 100% crew Reload Time: 4.12s Accuracy: 0.37m Aim Time: 2.21s Turret Traverse: 43.8 deg/s View Range: 370m Signal Range: 323.29m 100% crew + Vents OR BIA Reload

He reminds me of the kid from my neighborhood, who was always shoehorning his way into our pick-up baseball games at the park, or our street hockey games on on the old tennis courts. He would claim to know the game back and forth, would totally suck at playing, and then, brag endlessly about the one hit he got, or one one goal he scored, and use that as proof that he was an excellent player, and the rest of us were bad.

The Tiger II can easily frontline as long as you're not using the stock turret and angling the hull, but beware of LFP pens The Tiger H can frontline to finish things off and act as an HP sponge, but don't try to do things like 1v1 an IS and don't lead a charge into multiple hard hitting guns because the armour is inadequate for anything beyond tier 6

  7. TL;DR – there is no TL;DR, huehuehue, read it all you sukers. Armour It can be said without exaggeration that the 263 is one of the best armoured tanks of the game with uniform slabs of 250mm thick steel covering the entire front, but exactly how well-armoured is it? The frontal casemate is 250mm thick throughout, but divided into two parts, the first being the far larger upper half, which is sloped back at 45 degrees, raising the effective armour to 353mm~ against HEAT; and the second being the significantly smaller lower half which is completely flat and unangled, effecti

  8. I just came across the worst single decision I have ever seen, and it cost us the match, so I'm gonna leave the guy's name right here, red, bolded and giant: bobbygreen407, you are a moron. T28 (bobby) on our team, alone against one Pz something (tier 4) and an IS-6. T28 has almost 800 HP, IS-6 has around 40 HP. T28 is up on the east base of Airfield, IS-6 is right around the corner on the bottom of the base hill. T28 decides that killing a tier 4 light tank is more important than finishing the nearly dead IS-6. T28 takes 2 shots to kill the Pz while giving the IS-6 2 shots on him.

    How To Crew Yer Tank Right.

    I wrote these a while ago and figured I should probably share them with everyone. If you know me - then reading these in your mind in my voice will make them that much better.

  10. Most people's first question for WoWP is: "How do I get an enemy off my tail?". The answer is: you don't. Then how do you survive? This will show you how. What is energy fighting? There are two types of energy: kinetic (airspeed) and potential (altitude). You want trade one for the other rather than losing overall energy. To slow down: climb (gain altitude). To speed up: dive (lose altitude). Cutting the throttle tosses away energy that could be useful later. Extending the flaps should be used sparingly for quick corrections, guns-on-target, and sometimes slowing a steep div

  11. Yes I am taking internet tanks too seriously but if I can't do that here where else can I? TL;DR Version: I suck at high tiers I'm playing IS and IS3 for the first time for the next 500 games and will analyse more thoughtfully to hopefully speed up and embed my learning. Thanks to platooning with different people in the last few days, installing xvm this morning and a comment made by a tentacled chap in another thread I have come to an epiphany about me and internet tanks. I STILL suck after 4k games. I'm not terrible up to tier 5. Above that I'm shocking. The tentacled one, in

  13. OK, so much for my "I'll just play casually, a battle or two a night, never get serious, never join forums, nope, not me, not this game" idea. This game is hidiously addictive and great fun, the "one more battle before bed" factor is definitely there. So here I am, about 250 games in which is apparently just enough to start realzing how little I know about the game and wanting to learn. Definitely a newbie, still learning where to go on the maps, and I've noticed that in public (I've only played public of course) the answer is often not where everyone else is going.

Matches full of 1 kind of OP tank, idiots that don't have the slightest clue about how ANY mechanic, tactic or strategy works in the game, trolls, and tk'ers are always out in force during these times. Most times I just let my tanks sit in the garage and waste the x3 or x5 bonuses while I play different games because the experience is so rotten. So, is it just me or does anyone else hate playing the game during th

    Hello!

    Hello guys. I recently discovered WOT ratings and this forums. A little info about myself: I only play the M18. Only. I do not use premium rounds. I do not use Premium Bonus. I am currently using Cola + 105 Octance as long as credits permits. For eveything else i'll post at purple corner. Nice meeting you guys! P.S. Am i considered a Unicum?

  16. Since I work I can only play WoT between 9pm and midnight and on weekends, so my stats, fun, and believe in mankind took a hige dive compared to when I was a student and playing WoT and different moments. BUT, this special weekend on EU had extra earning for the top 3 damage dealers, regardless of win or loss. This meant I played completely relaxed, and suddenly had 74% win rate and 2400 WN7 solo, on a tard weekend. Then I realized and I had a run of battle where I tried to do good, subsequently died quickly because of not supporting teams, and hup my stats, fun, and believe in man

As many EU forumers from what I have seen , I got tired from the constant whining and general immaturity of a large part of the forumbase , not to mention the level of english used >:| .So , I decided to immigrate here , maybe regenerate some brain cells lost from the countless hours wasted on EU forums , and hopefully participate to some interesting discussions .

  19. I'm no Jesus... but here's my 2 cents I didn't watch the replay cuz im at work atm but depending on where you spawn ( i usually do this when i spawn north but south works some what), i usually go to the area with those rocks right next to the train tracks (usually in between the rocks and the tracks) and use the terrain to go hull down. The advantage of that spot, hoping there isn't any arty in the match, is to have control of the map while not exposing one's self too much. You are able to take shots at ppl on the hill, in the town and the enemy going down the 1-2 line. All while having th

Rolled KV-1S's and Excelsior squads with a couple of buddies and finished with 60 battles at a 75.86% WR. Racked up over 130,000 free XP.

  22. There's obviously some kind of reason you have all the tanks you do, otherwise you wouldn't bother keeping them. I don't know why you're asking for other people's opinions unless you want to only keep good tanks/tanks that are on a good line, in which case - sell all of your low tiers with the exception of the US Stewart if you want the Chaffee - sell your Leopard/VK2801/PzIV/Tiger - sell the ELC, 12t and 1375 - up to you but personally having played 300 games on a T-50-2 and a couple hundred on the T-50, sell the T-50 and abandon the line because the MT-25 won't be anything like them a

  28. They both got a fat credit buff this patch. With their earnings now and the amount of stupid you can steamroll over in tier 5 I'm seeing 35k+ net in them as a rough average with premium. Without, probably half that. Now that the 105 HEAT BS is over they're both back to being full on excellent. The T14 is all about hull down and angling. The weak gun isn't such an issue when they can't hurt you back, and its APCR is good enough when you're in trouble. It's very tough and gained a lot from this last patch. It's my most played tank and I think very underestimated. Ever since gold ammo for cre

  34. Adding survival was considered, but the evolutionary algorithm throws it down to 0 value, like cap. It seems to just be too noisy. It depends too much on playstyle, type of tanks used, etc. I have switched to a more aggressive playstyle since 8.7, and my kpg bumped from 1.65 to 2.0. K/D is about the same. Of course, I die more, but IMHO I seem to be much more decisive on game outcome too...

  36. I'll preface this with the statement that I don't really like spinal-mount TDs, the reckless way I drive is not particularly conducive to survival in them. That being said, I am currently 100k out of 150k to the SU-122-54 in the SU-101, and to summarize my experience I would use the words "distilled suffering". The gun itself isn't terrible, but it doesn't feel right for a TD. The idea of one of the T-54's good guns at tier 8 sounds nice at first, but then you consider that other TDs are toting things like the BL-10 or 12.8cm L/55. Also the incredibly restrictive gun traverse can be lethal

While I've seen it work... rarely.. if they aren't using the mechanics and tactics you can read about here it just = EPIC FAIL. And, they usually don't. If you have heard of XVM, that can help you learn who is good in game. There is plenty of info here on it. You are wise not to progress to quickly. It is WAY better to learn in the lower tiers then to shoot up to tier 8 and get your @zz handed to you because you have no fargin clue what you are doing and how to use your tanks. (I stil

  38. I run rammer/GLD/vents + BiA + Gold food to try and maximize DPM. I have the reload down to 6.32s. I could see the merits to optics, but you have to remember the base viewrange for that thing is 330m, so you won't get much bang for your buck imo. The overwhelming strength of this TD is the DPM. I believe it is third in the game for DPM, after the tortoise and russian tier 10 TD's (which are tied for second). The excessive fire rate lets you do many things with this tank that wouldn't seem like good ideas at first. For example, you can snipe with this inaccurate TD, since the volume of fir

  39. They are treating it like the pikes on the IS-3 and IS-8 then, which is incorrect. Unlike the flat surfaces on the Russian and Chinese Heavies, you angle the eggshell to change the amount of area that is autobounce rather than for increasing slope and thus effective armor as you do in more conventionally shaped tanks. The weakest part of the armor on the eggshell is the part that has no lateral angle to the opponent, this area is largest when you are facing straight ahead at an opponent. When you angle, even slightly, then you change the part of the armor shape that is facing the opponent from

  43. No, the math and logic is right. You're going to do much better with prem rounds, there's no disagreeing with that. But it's retarded. Just like how now IS-6s and T-54s are retarded. These tanks were given better reloads because the lesser mobility and lower pen. Just like other few now retarded tanks, you throw out an element that was used to balance the tank, it becomes stupid. What I can not stand is people bitching about how T69 and T54E1 are "expensive to run". If you're looking for abusing a retarded WG decision and throw out tier 10 med DPG on those, yeah sure, it's your right t

    Banned/Permitted Words

    Stop making my brain hurt. That's probably over the line, since the pubbie has the situational awareness (or lack thereof). I personally think this is a bad move for you guys. If it's banned, good, just don't say it. Can't be biased if it's 100% gone. Or it's in, and then no bias, it's clean. But half half is funky, the line is painted in invisible ink and what forum warriors deem impersonal a mod may not. Use it very carefully.

Why should a player sit still to get pummeled if he's alone against 5-6 tanks? or in case of arty wait a minute or two to get found and killed when he can simply suicide and start playing again right away? Or do you also want to report players that run out of shells and start running away from the enemy tanks or find a place to hide, becau
