  1. The relatively complex armour system is one of the key things distinguishing WoT from a typical shooter game. Most people pick up the basics quickly, but very few seem to have a grasp of many of the details (though knowing absolutely everything isn’t that crucial). I happen to be very knowledgeable on the topic, so I thought I would finally get around writing this all down for future reference. Enough with the introduction, though. Be advised: wall of text ahead; this post contains everything I know about armour in WoT. >Armour Mechanics This is called “line of sight thi

  4. It becomes the concern of every single taxpayer when a sick individual is forced to turn to taxpayer funded government programs for assistance because they either knowingly bought cheap private insurance that covers virtually nothing gambling that they wouldn't get sick, or because their insurance company refuses to pay because of a technicality/"procedure is not medically necessary" etc. Edit: Speaking from personal experience, this says nothing about the devastating effect one person's cavalier attitude towards health insurance can have on other unsuspecting family members.

  5. I'm going to refrain from overly political commentary, except to say this: The US Healthcare system as it stands is unsustainable and horribly broken, ACA or no ACA. It is expensive to run, doesn't cover the entire population, emphasizes the wrong aspects of healthcare, and tries to shoehorn a field that lends itself remarkably poorly into a market-driven system. We spend more per capita on healthcare than any other nation in the world, and have piss-poor results to show for it. What the public at large wants, the healthcare system cannot deliver: they want care at low cost, when they

  9. No it's not. People keep on saying this but it has not been the case. I've been put up against who knows how many full team of greens. Either run 100 games on each server, record each player's WN7 and compare, or stop with the BS. All my 80% to 90% sessions have been on the East, and when my platoon mate wants to go "farm on West" things always go shit.

  11. You will never believe who I just ran into! My XFL-1 loaded on Arctic and there, plain as day on the opposing team, was Kobra2009 in a Mosquito. If you don't know him, he is/was a noted troll and whiner from the WoT forums. I'm not sure if he's still active. Anyways, pretty much from the start of the match he seemed to be whining about being wiped out in head2heads with heavies. Shortly after that I happened upon him and ripped his little wooden toy apart with 37mm (I must say, I'm enjoying the XFL-1 a lot!!!). He proceeded to start his classic WoT whining about MM being ri

  14. Avoid playing a medium or light at first; they are probably the most skill intensive tanks in the game. Playing a brawling heavy is probably the easiest role, or a sniping TD.

    Looking for a new clan.

    I dunno... maybe a tourney focused clan. SNRK and SpideyStrike come to mind.... but Spidey always merges with Crabs when made up tier 10 pixel tanks are on the line. I am baffled that if M--M is burning you out, why not just step down and be a soldier instead of DepCom. How stressful can being DepCom in a non-CW clan be? You don't have any chips to move.....

  21. The driving force behind Classical Liberalism was the principle that individuals are free to do what they please so long as their actions do not interfere with the free exercise of another person's rights. So if your actions and decisions negatively impact those around you, then yes, your rights are restricted to protect the well being of the rest of society. "Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others." - Jefferson

  22. Actually the implication of his quote is that there is and should be a balance between the rights of the individual and the needs of the Society. And to achieve that balance individuals must be willing to give up some of rights in order to benefit from the Society, just as the Society must give up some of its needs in order to attract the most individuals, while still maintaining the integrity of the Society as a whole.

  25. When the XP/credits are calculated at the end of the match, there is no special "checkbox" called "all enemies destroyed" give bonus - true However - the more damage is done to the enemy team (% of the overall available red hitpoints), the greater the team bonus for "just showing up". So to summ it up you get XP/credits for: - clicking "Battle" - your own performance (Spots, def, cap, damage, kills ...) - multi for win - bonus for inflicted damage on the enemy team by your whole team depending on the % enemy HPs destroyed - > Its stupid to leave 3 hightier enemy tanks (with g

  26. From my experience, you do get more exp for destroying them all. Team damage is one of the factors that raise your exp. So all foes dead = max team damage = more exp for you.

  27. Not necessarily. I've been a wiki editor (WoT community contributor, green name) for months now, actively helping out when there's stuff to do, and I've never been treated badly. I've seen some questionable decisions, but nothing like this. Ever. At all. Nothing even close. That said, if true (No offense, Kird, I'm going to take anything like this with a grain of salt) this is pretty awful. I can see her finding a way to justifiably shoot down a request for gold, but that's not how to do it. At all. I wasn't a fan of WoWP's community team before, but I'm even less of one now.

  29. ^That. I make money on almost all my tanks. I didn't get 15 tier 10s just by spamming T8 prems. Alternatively, I hear HE is cheaper, and by firing it you can 5-shot a T-62a. Plus it does damage erry time.

  32. This problem of camping stems from WGs camo and spotting mechanics. One of the main reasons people camp is because you will spot the other guy first 98% of the time. Since a whole lot of vehicles and can have full camo and be only detectable at 50-100m stationary and only 300ish meters when firing by the best spotting tanks in the game is a huge problem. This is compounded when you have a high camo vehicle with great vision and alpha (aka a TD). It simply isnt it worth it most of the time to be the guy in the medium having to lose your camo by moving and trying to scout tanks that wil

  39. Also, a thought. Many individuals have written guides, but I think we would all agree that the collective wisdom of the unica would be greater than any individual writer. What if we had a crowd sourced guide on a given map or tank, wiki style perhaps, where everyone could contribute. We might need some mechanism for quality control or brevity, but this could produce some quality material that wouldn't age quite so fast, or end up redundant. Thoughts?

  44. It's not really like the Hellcat at all, it's better at sniping and scouting than the Hellcat, but has less of a medium ranged engagement profile (70-200m). It's a lot more agile, has more camo, and is more fragile in CQC due to sheer lack of HP. The killzone of 270m-445m, which is the range you will spot things (400m) to the range you can shoot things at until they will see you if you are in a bush (270m) is very large, and often enough distance for you to kill a tank without it every seeing you. Because of what I just said, the T49 is one of the few vehicles in the game that can reliably li
