  2. If 60% in the 38na gives you some sort of authority to just dismiss arguments against a stance you have taken, then my light tank stats pretty much mean that you don't exist if I so deem it. I mean, consider: You round up to 60% after 107 battles. You're 10 battles off from breaking even. In a stretch of 100 battles, it is easily imaginable that you got lucky 10 times. This line of thinking gains serious traction when we consider your Chaffee, which has 200 battles and 49.5% wins. Wait, the Chaffee is MUCH more potent per-tier than the 38na, what's going on here?

    Agree with this. Limiting your exposure in higher tier battles is key. Try to find spots where you can use your gun depression to hide most of your hull from enemy fire. When you do expose yourself to fire, you should only be exposing your turret. Do it just long enough to get a shot off, then back in to cover again. Also try to time your shots when the enemy is on reload (even if it means waiting for a little bit). The US 90mm at Tier 6 is an awesome weapon though. Having those APCR shells available for Tier 8 fights gives it a lot more utility.

  6. Consider that you get less DPM, worse gun handling, and HEAT over APCR, I wouldn't call that an improvement to firepower by any means The E3 has a role, if a specialized one, in that it busts the enemy team's balls by forcing them to waste valuable time engaging it, it soaks ridiculous amounts of damage, since literally the entire front is highly resistant to non-TD gold shells, and you have to get it out in a hurry, or you'll get fucked by that huge gun if you just let it keep firing.

  7. Hey guys! For those who are just now getting wind of this game, or for those of you who'd been onboard since July, you probably know all about the LTI (Life Time Insurance) packages and how they're no longer attached to current ships ever since the beginning of August. I'm here to help change that. I'm a veteran backer, this gives me access to purchase LTI on all the ships you have access to. How it works is you pick what package you want, then gift it to someone who's a backer. They then melt it down for credit and repurchase the same package but this time it has LTI and they

  9. See, Florb, you don't get to DEMAND evidence from us, when you ignore all the evidence presented to date, and present no evidence of your own. We go back to your assertion: "the 38nA is a fine tank and scout MM is OK because I have a 60% WR in it." You used YOUR stats in that statement to draw 2 rather broad conclusions: (a) the 38nA is not a bad tank (b) BT 4-8 MM for a T4 LT is perfectly acceptable As for the first, global WRs, and experience by those who have played that tank counters your one-man assertion.

  10. Poe's law is all over this. Is Florb a troll acting like a tanks fundamentalist, or is he a tanks fundamentalist being mis-labeled as a troll? In either case, MaxL pointed out that Florb long ago (in the midst of the 105 HEAT debates) completely stalled in his understanding of the game, and so discussing balance (and usability) with someone who isn't in the same arena of game comprehension or execution is pretty futile. You might simply hold different "facts" in your heads, and might eventually be able to get at the root of those assumptions to find common ground, but internet argumen

    M6 struggles

    M6 has a very good mobility. Use that and act as a low top speed medium in BT8. Also, use hills and terrain to go hulldown, but don't stay there. The M6 aims really fast and even has decent dispersion factors on the move, so really the main advantage of being hull-down in the T1 heavy and the M6 is the low exposure and not the armor (they have little of it, and very unreliable). Remember you have probably the best gold shells at your tier (248 APCR pen with more than decent accuracy) that can burn straight through practically everything that isn't the upper glacis of a Koenig Tiger

  24. Some of you may remember me discussing this idea -- basically, I would run a challenge in a high tier, scouty medium to see what win rate I could get carrying only 5 rounds of normal ammo. The idea is to see how much I could influence a game purely through scouting, indirect contribution, taking hits, and very limited DPG. Over the last few weeks, I tried it in a variety of tanks (including t54, some t10 meds, weezee, even in meat shields like the e-100)... ...and failed horrifically. My final results were ~48% win rate, ~800 dpg, and ~800 exp/game. I could scout just fine and even man

  27. No, it doesn't have the armor of KV or mobility of T1 (although not slow by any means). What it does have is a giant ass gun with good pen. Use that instead of trying to fall back on things it doesn't have. I said it's a personal problem, because it seems you have no idea how to abuse alpha, shown by your claims of 105 HEAT not being OP at tier 5, when I ran it at tier 7 on my DB and still stomped faces.

  29. My Leo is on 59% as well- but that's because A) I get to club seals quite often with it and B) certain maps are extremely scout-friendly (e.g. Malinovka- drive to a bush in the swamp, watch half the enemy team evaporate). That doesn't change the fact that scouts are utterly useless when they are fighting much higher tiers in maps that don't have room for ninja antics- as I've been frequently reminded by tier X games on Tundra in my Chaffee; there is no way you can really slip past the enemies there, and so it is essentially downgraded to a tier VI med with its anaemic firepower and durability.

  30. If you aimed at that T57 (in the first pic) and then the T57 disappeared your aim would focus at the thing that would be behind the T57. In that instance there is ground behind the hidden T57 so you probably would not overshoot the target. However if you were aiming little more to the right there would not be any ground behind the target which would make your aim to go towards the sky and thus miss because that's where the automatic wot elevation would adjust your gun towards. Here is a pic that explains my point. If you aim at the green cross your shot will probably hit the T57 from that

And yes, I removed the Antec case fans that were initially on the front with Aerocool Shark 120mm, just for higher cfm,considering going through 2 filters. (Reverse osmosis?)

  34. Just use standard medium tactics. You can camosnipe and work your firing lines to get flank shots early on in the match. Later on, you can flex and sacrifice some hp to clip out weakened high priority targets. It's really just about being mindful of your positioning and planning out your reloads (not so much on the T69 as it's relatively short compared to say a 50 100). Also, you need to make sure you place your shots. Missing/bouncing shots due to poor aiming reduces your dpm significantly.

  35. One important thing about blindshots imo is the wot aiming system that can sometimes make the shots go really high if you try to aim at hidden tank that sits on top of a hill or in some other place where you are aiming at the sky when the tank has disappeared. In some cases it is impossible to counter that effect. With guns that have very high arc it is impossible. Here is a pic that explains the problem: This is important to keep in mind when doing blind shots. For example the spot shown in op's pics. If you aim there and shoot you are very likely to overshoot because the wot ai

  36. Vents + BiA does not give you a 10% bonus to aim time, it gives you a 4.3% bonus to aimtime via a 11% bonus to gunner skill. GLD gives you a 10% direct bonus to aim time which is further reduced by gunner skill. (GLD + BiA would stack to an effective 12.15% reduction in aimtime. A GLD on its own will give you a bigger reduction to aimtime than Vents, BiA and Food all together.

He didn't fire a salvo at you, he showed you why mathematically more bots means a higher winrate for you, not "your actual chances of winning being determined by the percentage of live players on your team." Your topic is bad and your premise is flawed. Better players will correct you on this forum. If you can't accept that then please, don't be a doormat, just walk out the door.

  42. Situational awareness and reacting to map are key skills that make difference in deep purple region. They are limited by ones intelligence and concentration ( playing tired is bad etc...). I believe everyone has a limit to his performance and that you have to accept that you will never be good in WOT as Straik ,Kirilloid, emu87, Lucique (etc..). Life isnt fair, live with it!

    How2Hellcat?

    There are obviously many different ways of playing the Hellcat and very difficult to determine what makes a good Hellcat player. Some could argue that the highest damage per battle should show the best player. I would argue that is far from the case. The one that can win the most playing solo would naturally be the best player although there's no way of measuring this as platooned games doesnt get separated in any statistics anywhere. Either way, How2Hellcat: Use your epic speed straight from the start to get to good positions where you may catch the enemy off guard. Try to go for a
