  1. Get a fast tank. That's it, it doesn't matter if the tank is just flat-out awful armour or gun-wise, as long as it's fast and combat-oriented (possessing a gun that functions decently in it's battle tier), being able to maintain more than 38 kmph easily with 1.1 - / 1.x - / 2.x - terrain resistance stats, it's a good solopub tank. This is just my experience though, but I think it might be applicable to quite a few people here. Here's my record in fast tanks that had 90% or more battles in solopub since coming back from my hiatus: As you can see, in general, the solop

  4. I'm working on a complete write-up of the night for myself so I can practice it all and I may post it in the Newbie Zone once it's done but here are a few things from my notes. Some should have been obvious, others are more... fuzzy/tactical. Be patient. You have two things the enemy wants: the flag and your life. Protect them both; never throw them away. Be assertive, not just aggressive. Know where the enemy wants to be and stop them short of getting there by getting into a position to make them regret moving to where they want to go with lots and lots of explosives. That doesn't mea

  11. Yeah, I find that's the common trait (or set of traits) of good tanks (not pref MM ofc, different standards apply). They all have a great combination of mobility, firepower, and protection, like the T110E5 and mediums in general, etc. Overpowered tanks though, take it one step further by having a good combination of these three main trait groups, but also stacking it hugely on one or two of these traits, like how T57 has massive DPM and an autoloader (i.e. extreme firepower), which absolutely crushes flanks. Truly overpowered tanks take it to the maximum with every trait, like th

I played for fun for the first 6k games and even my kids were playing my account, but now I need to be a reliable team mate. It will be impossible to undo those games but I am trying to get a higher 60 day WR and efficiency.

  14. Hello everyone, I have not been a gamer since my days on a Commodore 64. Last Christmas I was bored (I hate Christmas, but that is a story for another time) and I wanted to see how graphics had changed in 25 years. I Googled to see what the top games were for the PC. WOT was one of them, and hey, I like tanks, I used to build models of them when I was a kid, so I decided to give it a try. Right off the bat I wanted to be a Tiger or King Tiger as those were my favorite tanks of WWII. I could not figure out how to get one, so I bought a KV-5. I shot at mountains, I shot at rocks and basi

Oh and if you have xvm installed you'll also know where the good tanks went. * Light up the enemy tanks so you can shoot them without being seen. * Generate map control and area denial. Knowing what area is clear for your team will allow them to advance to better forward positions. Enemies getting spotted by your scout will have their sixth sense buzzing and likely hold off from advanci

  20. Dissidence's Guide to Competence in Tanking For Baddies (<49%) I realize I've never really put in the effort to write out a whole guide before, so this one will be my first (and lengthy) one. I'm putting this together because on the WOT forums and here in two days, I've seen a number of players with bad stats ask about improving...which is awesome. There are a lot of amazing guides out there for how to play specific tanks, and a lot of time has been spent on guides for making the jump from a good player to a great one (something I'm still working on, I might add).

  22. So, the results of the Heavy Marathon were released. Unlike previous events where I went through the data, I won't be doing that this time. Why? Because the guy who got the highest XP total in the contest showed what a farce it really is: everyone got disconnected from the game, he re-logged back in, and killed AFK tanks to rack up a 2462 base XP game. A guy who struggles to deal his HP in damage got a lottery ticket dumped in his lap. I mentioned in that I didn't want to ruin the contests, and that I had a way to ensure higher XP that wasn't being utilized. But between cheating a

    Camo Net in 8.6+

    My testing confirmed 7.5 / 1.75% while sitting / firing in a medium. As an idea how well it works in gameplay, my Leo1 could sit in the open and fire at a 400 view range tank unseen at 381m. Without the net or camo crew its like 391. In other words, still pretty mediocre.

  25. The tank is superb, I don't know how anyone can hate it. Other than the obscene cost of running full gold, its pmuch the perfect tank. I've stopped using binocs except in limited situations. Here's why: - Assuming a view range of 400m, a tank with proper skills (bia+recon+sit) and optics can spot at 470m. - This means you can negate ~5.5% camo and STILL spot at max range - Almost no tank has over 5.5% camo firing, regardless. So anyone shooting is within spotting range (setting aside bush usage atm, remember bushes negated within 15m). Binocs add no value to this. - Even a

  26. Things: Skills suck, explained above. Ammo loadout sucks, no reason not to bring more APCR - your AP pen is on the low side and this is a T10 vehicle, you shouldn't skimp on ammo. Too many facts we probably already know; this is wotlabs. You've got a few lines telling us how to use these facts, this could be expanded upon. Vents are bad with the S-70's aimtime. GLD or bust. Default recommendation should include auto extings, not manual. Kind of skimped over how bad the S-70 is. It's literally the worst gun of any tier 10 tank.

    Camo Net in 8.6+

    The practical effect is this -- my Leo, using a properly set up crew (BIA, 6th+camo, view+repair) + camo insignia + optics + rammer + camo net could: - spot a typical heavy at ~430m - fire unseen at 380 - Obviously much less effective against meds/tds Or, I could drop the camo net - spot at 430, fire at 390 How much is that 10m worth to you? Worth giving up 10% DPM? Or 20% smaller circle? Maybe on a hellcat, but I think its clear optics, rammer, and vert still trump camo net.

  41. Indeed, sitting back is basically how you win in tier 2. You can't bounce anything, you can't trade any HP (tanks have 1k dpm and 150 hp). The only advantage you can gain is to shoot better than the other guy (nerfed in 8.6 due to 100% crews on new accounts) and to vision control. Blackhorse is a bad player with grandiose ideas due to experience in the oft cited Real World. He should take a page from 1stTanks and dcmgill's playbooks.

Purples as a whole are not viewed well because of the co0llective vocal antagonistic behavior. However because WoT self-segregates, for good or bad--you will be identified with your group and not your individual personality. Look

Its rare to find a purple with social skills greater than the average dumb rock. My own clan is filled with Greens and Blues of the same ilk--they just beat up on the yellows and reds of our sister clan talking about how awesome they are. The internet tough-guy syndrom is alive and well (it permeates pretty much every computer game).

  46. I wouldn't call it a buff/nerf to a group of players, What they gain offensively they also lose defensively. They wont miss their bad@shooting shots anymore, but they also wont dodge nearly as many shells purely by RNG placing shots where their tanks isn't. It does feel like mobility has been nerfed though, you don't need to zero anymore, and hitting snap-shots at range is significantly easier now, and it makes active scouting and lightly armored meds harder to play. Armor has become more important, and knowledge about weaknesses even more so against these armored targets.

Other drivers attempt to pass my fishtailing 100 Kmh 18 wheeler so I can conclude they are suicidal. The game penalizes efficient driving by fining you for running lights, "persuading" cars to yield the right of way, taking shortcuts through parks/gas stations, taking faster roads (cars on the left side of the freeway pass you faster), and by dropping your trailer to increase mileage. This game nags me constantly on my trip from Berlin to Paris that I am going the w
