  1. After seeing the success of this site and how many people have been helped and then reading Junker's post on the official forums I started thinking about what I might be able to do to try and get at least one average or worse player to realize that they can do better. For a while now I've been trying to make polite strategic requests to my teams in pub matches when it appears (via XVM) that I might be one of the more experienced players on the team, and sometimes it even works. This tells me that sometimes people read the chat messages, and even more importantly sometimes people actually wan

  3. Yesterday I decided to stop sucking at tanks and paid visit to the musée de l'Armée (army museum), Paris. As WoT is about war with tanks, lots of military lovers would be on this forum so I'm sharing my poorly framed photos. Sure, the photos on the official site linked above are of incomparable qualities but like porn, amateur stuffs are more immersive and feel real don't they ? Medieval armory, Foch(that Foch)s tomb, Napoleons tomb, generic Nazi stuffs, offensively sized arty shells, poor Dreyfus etc were all there for 9,5 euros per person. A must visit I say, my photos don't do justic

  4. 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

  5. So, Today i finally managed to clock over to 1000 Overall Efficiency, Yay yes i know its a pretty crappy milestone... But still. It feels good to be getting better. Now i just need the Overall to match that great 60-day down there. (and i also need to get 4 Digit WN7 since not many people care about eff these days anyway) My next Goals are: 1000 overall WN7 green overall Eff and WN7. will get there eventually.

  6. Don't click so fast? Also, turn on server reticule if you have a shit ISP/PC. I don't care, I look forward to getting to stab russicums in the eye. You are worse than a derp? I actually liked the derp on that tank tho too. Yes, I actually preferred t8 games since the t6 pubbies were so retarded. Plus its hard to keep my DPG at sufficiently bloated levels when pubbies all have 400 hp. But seriously, low tier gameplay is awful. DPM is too high relative to HP, pubbies are full fucking retards much more often than not, and platoons of seal clubbers are t

    What about a tier specific WN7. Something like this: High Tier only: Tiers 8-10, calculated normally Tier 10 only: This way you could at a glance screen out the jsnazz padders and focus on what matters most -- tanks that are used in or similar to in playstyle tanks that are used in CW. Another option might be: damage whore quotient -- focus ONLY on kpg, dpg, and normalized exp/game (assume prem). Win rate, capping, and spotting are ignored. The goal would be comparing damage whore output.

    Well Vizir is tucked away around a corner in the Empire wing, he's easy to miss. Fortunately for me, I specifically check around corners for stuff like that If you're just visiting Paris, don't forget to check out the Pantheon in the Latin Quarter for a more humanist (less jingoistic) nationalism - it's no less grandiose though!

  14. Sure, its unfair. Scouts get the shaft and noobs never see it coming. Likewise, I think the power gap between tiers, especially tiers 5-7, is way too much. Watching an IS-2 one shot tanks that have 1/4 its HP, can't penetrate it, and can't outrun it is just ridiculous. And for that matter DPM on low tier tanks is completely out of whack -- tanks get whacked before they realize they are under attack constantly. But its never getting fixed; WG needs to sell gold. Probably the T-62A. I don't think I would ever get tired of playing it. But I don't have a favorite tank, I like vari

  15. When Kraft and I get together, we will check Hellcat and T49 to give you an idea of how much it helps them. The other thing to consider is that in tier 5 play, the potential engagement envelope is significantly enhanced even if the bonus is only 15 meters, because it is going to be in the meat of the tanks' engagement range.

  16. T-62A is the perfect medium, with all their strengths and weaknesses. It may not carry as hard as an E5 or put out the DPG as a foch, but its still better than any other medium and can do things the foch/E5 can't. T57 is extremely strong, but the alpha and armor of the big tds is still strong. If anything, the field tipped back to TDs, although I still think the T57 is better overall. And don't obsess with DPG -- its not the end all of skill/carrying, despite what the damage whores say. Its a means to an end, and tanks contribute in different ways. A 3.5k DPG E5 is likely contributing a

  18. 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

  19. Because heavies are the most effective combat tanks. Consider the flaws of each class: - Hard TDs (no turret, can't go around corners, vulnerable 1v1 to meds) - Soft TDs (can't take a hit, lead a charge) - Meds (can't take a hit, low alpha can punish them in peekabooms) - lights (some maps suck, without direct damage ability hard to carry) - Clickers (fuck retard mode) Some maps favor scout and snipe tactics (like campinova). But tanks who dominate those maps (meds/lights/snipe tds) tend to do poorly on urban maps (hummelsdorf). Yet tanks that dominate urban maps (E3, etc) tend t

  20. 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

  23. I just had a match in my M46 Patton on Malinovka and there was some tier 10s on each side. On my side there was a Type 62 who determined that because it was a tier 10 match he was useless and decided to drown himself saying it is useless to be a passive scout and then claims he does this every single match there is a tier 10 on his or the enemy team. This very last image is after he has admitted multiple times he suicides all the time and then goes on to continue to argue with everyone on our team.

  33. wrong. Let me correct it for you In other words, EU and RU server unicums get about and less than, respectively, half as many good players in their matches as unicums in the US server. If they got twice as many baddies in a match as you suggest they would need to increase the player count to 30 vs 30 just to fit them all in.

  36. WG does not make spotting damage available. It is impossible to add it to anything as a recorded stat at this point in time and will continue to be for the foreseeable future. If they did, it would not just be tossed in to WN ratings. The next step is that the result of spotting damage would need to be correlated to victory. Which would take some time after the data collection starts. After there is a suitable amount of data to pull from, it would be possible to suss out how much spotting damage helps you win games. My inclination would be that it has some significance but not nearly as

You leave spawn, got hold up by a low tier arty in a troll toon, making you unable to get to key spots in time. Not that it mattered that much, because about half way there, I had to turn back anyway, since 2 minutes into the game, all I saw was this: Hmmm... not good. Yup, got trouble. Well, we'll see what we can do. Chaaaarge! Boom, left him at 13 HP (he was already a bit damaged, but I tracked him, so he missed his shot). Got no time to reload here: Aha, p

I didn't realize this was "THE" mickey untill after battle, but it wasn't hard to point him out; he had over 23k battles and a 40% win rate. (Yea I didn't do so well, sue me) Mickey somehow managed to get less exp than a jagdtiger that did no damage and an indien panzer that did less damage than mickey. We had an interesting conversation Seems like a reasonable intellectual nice guy.

  46. The way to use the Lee is to ignore everyone else. It is an assault gun, get in close, use your fast hull traverse and wide gun traverse + fast ROF to ruin fools. I elited the Lee, including unlocking the Priest from it, and after 179 battles I had a 60% winrate and it remains one of my highest tank specific eff and damage vehicles, because when you don't play like a pussy the Lee is actually Captain Badass.

  47. I recently set a few rules for myself on that. 3 losses in a row = play a different tank, 5 losses in a row = take a break and play something else. A few weeks ago I tried to "play it through till I get the night back on the winning side" and ended up logging off out of sheer frustration after 8 wins and 20 something losses.

    The lee, not terrible.

    The Lee is the Charlie Harper of tanks. Comes at you with promises of a great gun and great penetration, might even give you one amazing night of action, and in the next morning it dumps you in the street and never returns your calls.
