  1. I recently made a break through in my play. I thought I'd share with everyone how I made the jump from green/blue to purple. Strangely enough, I owe a huge part of it to WGNA. (shocking) They had a special "hat trick", where you got a fat credit bonus for 3 kills. I promptly ran out and got 3 hat tricks in 4 games. (for hockey fans, that is almost an Ovetchtrick) I decided....Wait a sec... I CAN do this. The other big help was WoT Stats switched to WN7. So now I could no longer go, "well, I did alright... I carried my weight". I could look over and SEE my WN7 and it was DIGUSTING to see thos

  5. This is exactly what I did tonight. I was once again angered to the point of load/leaving on teams. Had a run of 12 games at tier 10. One was a 70%+ chance. Another was a 48%. Rest were 42% or below. Team has to suck pretty hard to be ~40% when I'm on board. Then, I said "Fuck it, lights." Lights are great. Low carry potential, so you have no problem blaming the team for the losses! And then, I said "Fuck it, wanna win." So, T-49. 2 5 kill games, 2 7 kill games, and an 8 kill game later, I felt better about the night. Didn't quite marry the model, but I'll jerk it to the pl

  6. This is an attitude I often see from scrubby, suicide prone players. It's like they are protesting their own mediocrity. Pro tip, you are there to get as much XP and as many credits as possible on your way to a win. Even if the impossibru happens and loss/draw is unavoidable you should be aiming to maximize your XP and credits despite the loss, not penalize yourself in some sort of impotent protest against your own incompetence.

  7. It seems like a no brainer, but this guide will show you what the best spot to shoot angled tanks frontally. (yes, some parts of the LFP are better than others). Take this KV-3 (Through bushes, so the shot is more complicated): Zone 1: Red. It's the turret. The turret is not a good place to shoot on this tank. Zone 2: It's green, but this is not a good place to shoot this tank if you have a bead on zone 4 Zone 3: Autobounce Zone 4: This is the best place to shoot. I'll explain in a second. Zone 5: Tracks. This is where you shoot if you want a no damage penetration. Zone 4 is clearly t

    WN8

    Hi guys, I still don't have much free time on my hands to do any work, but I thought we could start discussing WN8. For those of you who follow my WN thread on the off forums, the main proposals for WN8 are: *Eliminate tier based penaltys to frags and spots *Half the contribution of defense points to WN, and lower the cap from 2.2 to 1.4. *Possible re-work of damage curve (I would retailor the curve to values for each tier using top100 damage for each tank available using XVM and in-game stats) *Re-implement the low tier penalty due to it being easily evaded by playing equal amounts

  9. These two vehicle stand out. They might make me a scumbag... FV304 70 kph. 17 hp/ton. I could see some extreme trolling in this thing. "Arty-safe" Right. But 450 dmg? That could get quite frustrating. If only it could do 900 dmg... Crusader SP So what skills do I need? Backwards driving? I'm sorry, but I gotta try this shit out...

  13. IMO this - ... monstrosity doesn't belong in a pub match. Ever. Its weak spot is stronger than the strongest armor of the Premium Hotchkiss, a tank considered OP for its tier by many. Plus, it gets preferred matchmaking because of its pathetic gun. It's a travesty of game balance. Hell yeah I want one.

  14. I've been lurking here for some time and realized the WoTLabs forums present an amazing resource to the community. So, rather than to remain in hiding, I thought I would introduce myself to what certainly seems like a great community here. Compared to many players I have had the pleasure of playing with, I am a relatively new WoT player, having started in December of last year. Thus far, I have been thoroughly enjoying it and constantly striving to improve. That strive is what brought me here, I had already been using WoTLabs for my main source of stats tracking and was quite excited when

  21. A common "assumption" made by people here is that unicums on other servers seem to get more baddies, and is commonly refuted by the UNBELIEBERS that the ratio of unicums/good players throughout all servers are the same. MYTHBUSTING TIME! I found an interesting set of files on wot-news (EXCEL) that listed all the players over 1500+ eff and 2000+ battles in each server, they can be found in the Advanced Player Statistics, in the bottom of each window opened up by the tabs. http://wot-news.com/main/download/top/result_us.csv http://wot-news.com/main/download/top/result_eu.csv http

  23. Sadukar made a on weaspots, but he only covered tier 7-10. This thread will cover tiers 3 through 6. Tanks in Tiers 1 and 2 are pretty much ALL weakspot. First off, you need to know more on shooting. Never use auto-aim. I equate auto-aim to auto-bounce. I was in a battle in my VK3601 the other day, and an enemy 3601 was shooting at me. He was quickly peaking around a corner, firing, and returning. After doing this 2-3 times, he poked out for a for a few seconds, fired, and penetrated me. It was clear he took off auto-aim and manually aimed at me. Either this, or he took more time for his di

  24. Hello! A couple of updates: - K/D Ratio has been removed from the signature image and replaced with Kills per Game (Avg. Kills). After a long discussion on the WoTLabs forum, the consensus was that K/D Ratio does not do a good job indicating a player's skill. The best alternative was decided to be Kills per Game. - Average Experience has been removed from the signature image because seriously, it's just flawed (exp values with premium bonuses / other bonuses are stored by Wargaming, instead of the base exp). Replaced with Average Tier. - Fixed an issue where a player's stats would not update

  26. Two nights ago I had the opportunity to platoon with sela for the first time (CrabEatOff was the 3rd). I had been playing well that day and the day before, but was starting to make some questionable decisions. As the night progressed, to Crab and sela's bemusement, then mortification, then borderline rage I proceeded to make uncharacteristically dumb decision after decision. I have always been streaky, with my above average games punctuated by the occasional derp and the occasional hard carry, but my derpiness reached new highs (lows?) that night, with enough potatoes to make the state of Idah

    Hello!

    Welcome. Glad my methods have helped you. I also played Counter-Strike, briefly in beta, and then from 1.3 to 1.6. I played in CAL-M/P/I at various times for NSA, and did a fair bit of LAN tournaments with Meepins. And yes, the similarities in competitive gameplay in WoT have brought over other CS players. I know Veril and ESA both played CS! Oh and wotreplays needs you to make an account, your NA login won't work :-(

I don't understand why WG can't have a one off event where limited edition prems/gift tanks become purchaseable. They could even jack up the gold price and still rake in the dosh.

    Here is a thought I had on high tier (9 and 10). As we progress up in tier, the damage to WN7 ratio is a fairly linear relationship (I realize it isn't perfectly linear, but stay with me). This is based on your "value" in WN7 due to damage, is reducing an amount of hitpoints from a basically fixed pool. That just sounds complex but let me explain: At Tier 5-7 there is a fixed amount of hitpoints (damage) that can be done per game. Your WN7 value is based in part on the percent you take out of that fixed pool. For a very simple analogy let us say at Tier 6 there is 10,000 total hit poi

  42. My friends all gave up with less than 50 battles. They all play League of Legends and are trying to convince me to play. They're convinced I could be in Diamond (which is very good). I keep telling them I'd much rather become a Diamond-equivalent in the game I've spent the last 2 years grinding first .

  48. &nbsp; &nbsp; I will give you some advice. Tip 1: Spend more time reading the forums and less time writing on them. Pay attention in English class and learn how to structure your sentences and paragraphs better. Your punctuation is also lacking to the extent that I had to read your posts more than once to try and make any sense of them. Tip 2: Read the many game guides provided on this forum and learn from them. Improving your gameplay is the key to moving up into more successful/competitive clans. Everyone can improve their gameplay, even the best players on this forum are learnin
