  3. 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

  5. Here is a basic guide on how to get through the entirety of the Chinese tree with as little rage and free XP as possible, and with only a little bit of gold [to occasionally swap out the Enhanced Suspension equipment]. Please take note that this is being written by someone who bought a KT only to research the 105mm gun to make the VK4502B grind easier, and then sold the KT... and also went from the KV-13 to the IS and through the IS-3 only to unlock the BL-9 to make the ST-I grind easier... and sold the IS-3 before even finishing the KV-4. Not all of this advice may actually be practical.

  6. 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. Suiciding is a sure sign of a moronic coward. There is absolutely no upside whatsoever to suicide, ever. You only give yourself maximum repair bill, ensure you lose, miss out on potential damage and are exposed for the retard you are. So no surprise it's usually arty.

    I reckon no-one would've shunned you if you just showed a slight bit of leniency............ Mods like Carves and Fresh don't red crayon people unless it's very bad..... Even Chappo has shown that he does not kill off all the joy on the forums. The problem that everyone has with you is that you probably take shit wayyy too seriously when it's just an internet tanks forum. Forum Mods don't get paid and yet you are treating it like it's a fulltime job where rules have to be followed or shit is gonna go down. Much like a fake policeman with no income and yet arresting people for jaywal

THIS DOES NOT INCLUDE PEOPLE WHO IDLE THE WHOLE MATCH, these people need to be moving around. Also, DO NOT CHANGE THE REPLAY FILE NAME, - Solono If you see a bot or a persistent AFKer let us know who they are so we can work together to get them banned. Please post suspected bots names, link to their stats and if at all possible a replay of them botting.

  16. I, and many, many others firmly believe that Efficiency has overstayed its welcome. Being a flawed system as it is, and the existence of the WN rating which is superior in every way, the Efficiency rating is now being removed from the signature images. Starting right now, this is what the new signature image looks like, original sig suggestion by weesh: WN7 has taken the slot previously occupied by the Efficiency rating, and the bottom slot has been filled with colored bars showing the types of tank you play the most (Navy selected because his bars go completely behind all the lab

  17. 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

  20. Note: At the time of writing, my win rate was 56%. I find that most solid all-round players encounter a major win rate plateau around the 55-60 mark. Now, I COULD easily get above 60% by platooning only (read: hitch a ride with two CWard-54s), but this thread is about how to solopub to 60% and above, Garbad's already demonstrated that it is possible, but the question is HOW. I've identified three major factors that seem to differentiate a true unicum from the 55-60 elite. 1. Opportunity Exploitation vs Opportunity Creation Most 55-60 (which I shall now refer to as Hi5Xs) players

  21. You block T69's retreat rather than giving him more room. You fire regular AP at the Type 59 rather than switching to APCR. You fire at the KV-1S's turret rather than the hull. Camping too long on the hill nullified any advantage your team had because there wasn't much sniping to be done. By the time you finally decide to return, it was already too late as your last defenders had been mopped up. You fail to notice the T34 sneaking up behind you. After being hit by the T34, you run away, rather than firing a retaliatory shot. You abandon base rather than defending until the end. This leads to e

  23. Shhhhh....nothing to see up here. Just some snow and ice. NARWL went and lost the LZ last night, on top of 3E and W-A-R sniffing around our territories. Should put an end to some of the boredom we've been feeling. We rebuffed both of 3E's attacks easily last night, but fumbled the breaking of the turtle on the attack (turtle on Fjords? I never.).

  25. user - by posting your OP, you leave to discussion all that is contained therein, not just what is referred to in the topic title. As far as I can tell no one in this thread is trolling you or going off topic. All posts refer to the OP. If you are of the opinion that decent players can only be decent by "stats padding" (which ironically is often defined as "throwing money at the game to appear better than pure skill can provide"), then no one will give a night's sleep on you not giving this website a second thought, although we do still welcome you at any point.

    As you see you had a teammate spotting him. The game has similar spotting system as WoT has. If your teammate sees him -> you will see him. If you are running from enemy planes going behind a mountain indeed is useful tactic as long as you manage to be in cover from ALL enemy aircraft.

  29. Just FYI, the crew and first battle specials no longer stack. It used to be 15x, but now the crew bonus is only applied to the base exp earned. This means each crew gets the exp earned by the tank (5x), plus 2x the base value, for a total of 7x instead of 5x. http://forum.worldoftanks.com/index.php?/topic/255169-crew-bonus-x3-not-working-with-x5/page__fromsearch__1

  31. Well after 37 games from stock in my IS this weekend, playing 2, watching replays and noting what went well or why I died/failed I have noticed a difference. My survival rate averages 25%, even on recent tanks. My IS is running nearly 46%. All other stats are up by a large margin compared to other tanks and global rates. My win rate for the last seven days is 66%. look me up on this site and check the uptick on the win rate graph. Just noting and thinking and recording my dumb mistakes has helped soo much. I now aim, it would seem I did not actually do that. This is quite f

  34. Short version: Prolific forum poster who equates a small amount of success in the bottom tiers to top 0.01% performance. Penchant for posting a screenshot of a single good game in over a dozen threads per day. Abysmal grammar, indicative of either trolling or mild retardation. Realization that he was an actual person, and not a troll, would be enough to convince a child raised by Jesus and Mother Teresa that some people need to be beaten to death, in order to keep them from breeding.

  35. 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

  39. Sorry this may be a bit blunt, but your damage is low per tier across the board, you should aim to do your amount of HP in damage or more, your capture points are near 2 and defense points are .5, means your strongly pushing at the enemy base and telling by your 21% overall survival rate, it looks like your trying to cap a little early, Of course this is situational but most of the time, its better to go finish off the enemy than sit and try to cap (Since most bases are in the open) But the best thing, you're trying to improve which shows great promise, Your still beginning (Near 2k bat

  46. Oke already said what I would have said, but I'll reiterate from my point of view (1,000 games in the E5) The armor is very situational. However, it is situational in a good way; it can be manipulated to your advantage more often than not. The turret armor is strong, but hulldown isn't truly reliable because of the cupola. The front armor is strong, but the LFP is very weak. The side armor is capable of side scraping, but it is pretty thin so you have to be very careful. One thing to consider before I go further: you have insanely good fire control. The gun is a laser at mid-close ran

Replay of northern strat in T-44 (play abit more conservatively with more DPM to become a WZ-131) : http://puu.sh/38NSO.wotreplay If you've noticed,I avoided the field almost completely,too many open areas without much cover,only go there if your team is pushing that side,otherwise I usually leave it open because the city has better flanking opportunities. You generally want to kill whatever things are in the way when moving from point to point.

  48. I hate SE corner and every shitty pub who goes there to die. It's the pubbie graveyard, just like the north corner on Redshire. It's "sperg", not spurge. Anyway, yes, the red boxes are generally places that you do not want to go, at least early game. You want to maximize your early damage output and create your own opportunities, not wait or rely on bad pubs to derp into you one by one. That can (and does) work at times, but you can't rely on the enemy to do that every game. Therefore, the positions on the map that I have selected offer excellent fire control lanes to smack pu
