  1. So some of you might have noticed that the website went down today. This was due to server overload, simple as that. The addition of the Wordpress installation for the merger with RBS pushed the application server to beyond what it's capable of, so I'm considering a few options, including purchasing a better server. For the time being, I adjusted the frequency of signature image updates, easily the most resource intensive part of the whole website, from 2 hours to 5 hours. This should give me a decent amount of headroom until I decide which way to go.

    Arty fix thought

    I'm not sure if this is the correct forum for this but I'd like to hear your thoughts of this idea I got a while back. I'd post it to the cesspool that is the official forums instead but fuck me for posting 50 posts there. So yeah I haven't been at the game that long yet but it is rather obvious that the whole coin flip insta-death far from ideal or fun for that matter. Also the friend who tricked me into playing this does play arty and keeps telling me how boring it and rng reliant it is but I'm sure everyone sees the whole "they should just remove arty from the game" isn't going to happe

  4. Some pubbie sent me this: I would suggest not doing anything about the overall strategy unless specifically asked. Most callers an idea of how they want things done, and more discussion/critique/etc tends to waste time and ruffle feathers. This applies even when you think you know better than the office. If you really think so, ask for a chance and step up, but a grunt armchair quarterbacking his leaders pretty much never helps anyone. I've followed calls and strats I thought were stupid, even in G. Still, preserving the integrity of command and morale of the group is more important th

  11. Edited on 30/7/2014, changed a few names as requested and corrected the final chart, all WG ratings name changed to "Global Rating" and noomber to "Personal Rating" to avoid confusion. At first I would like to thank Phalynx (From Vbaddict), for creating this usefull tool for extracting replays into JSON files, which you can find here https://github.com/Phalynx/WoT-Replay-To-JSON none of the following would be possible without it. And RichardNixon for error checking my WN8 and Effeciency fomulas. All the following was done through MATLAB (mat for matrix by the way not math ) TL:DR

    Calling 101

    So there has been a lot of threads about how to be a good FC, so i figured I could make a multi-part thread on how to call, and more specifically, how to call for a team of beginners. Rule#1: Two is bigger than one, three is bigger than two. Organized play in the crudest description is basically the question of "How do i get more guns firing than my opponent?" it is a very simple question, yet it is the question that hangs over every caller's head. How do you get more guns into a fight firing than your opponent? Do you maneuver your MTs and HTs so that you have more tanks firing? Or do

  13. Dungeon Crawl is a roguelike in which you play as one of a plethora of races with the goal of reaching the Orb of Zot deep within the dungeon. To do so you will go about sneaking, casting, and slashing your way too many dungeon levels. Why you'd play Dungeon Crawl: -For a Roguelike, the interface and gameplay is easy to learn. -Challenging to win. No, not "WoT mm hates me" challenging, more like "I have a 1% winrate" challenging. Shit's tough, yo. -Replayability is through the roof. Randomly generated, but made in a way that makes dying to RNG a rarity. -Quick to jump into,

Last week, on studentloans.gov I completed my master promissory note for this school year and received an email saying they would submit it electronically to my college in the next 24 hours. I go to college today. 2 people in line ahead of me. Wait 40 minutes. Get called. Woman tells me I need to print out and bring in the MPN. But the dot gov website said it would electronically submit to my college. Woman says "no they don't." uh...it's in this email right here. "that email is wrong." uh huh... Go to library, pay t

What numbers do you need other than I just hit you for 293 and you hit me for 450? Yeah good rolls don't affect games, neither does lag.

    Dungeon Crawl: Stone Soup

    DCSS is probably my favorite Roguelike out there. In my opinion it is the most fair and challenging without requiring you to memorise the selling price of potions in order to not kill yourself horribly. It has generally good balance in the races and classes (with some obvious 'challenge' versions of both) that actually change the way you play the game, but have similar abilities to navigate the dungeon. A MIFI (Minotaur Fighter) can be just as effective as a DEFE (Deep Elf Fire Elementalist) but they have 100% different play styles. The game gets regular updates too which are generally

  27. Ah, cool! I was Senior Strat Mod for Tiberium / CoD WaW back in the day. For sure. If we can get people doing #1 and #3, then a lot of the "well written" part can usually be solved by having a good editor or two go through stuff. It won't be perfect, but it'll definitely help a lot.

  31. Looks like you need a non-CW clan. May I recommend IOC_5? We're pretty relaxed, generally not retarded and happy to plat without TS. Or maybe I'm just talking about myself? Anyways, I get the introvert angle. Most of the time I don't play and when I do I almost never use TS. Not entirely because I'm introverted but it does play a role. Unless by lack of social skills what you're really trying to say is that you're a shitlord that spergs hard? ;-)

    Da Rocket?

    Here is some tidbits on aiming rockets. Reasons to use rockets: 1.You do get performance back after you fire the rockets now. 2. Rockets act as deterrence for ramming. Many people will not go head-on with someone who has rockets, or they will break if you fire. 3. Funzies. 4. You can fake out noobs. Basically, a player would see that your plane turns worse than theirs due to that little indicator thing on the target window... except that is referring to the base stats of the plane, with the rockets. It isn't accurate after you shoot the rockets, you might actually be able to out turn t

  33. As a prelude, this theory relies heavily on my earlier assumption about the map metagame changing. WG, and to an extent, unicums, know that people gathering such high WN8's are not playing the game as it was intended. At its core it's meant to be a simple game of armor versus mobility, with camo and other things like damage per minute and soft stats not meant to be a primary concern of the game. To unicums, the metagame is about mobility and firepower. Armor comes at a second thought. WG knows that unicums can and will abuse vision mechanics, maximize their damage output with advanced p

  34. "They were not willing to take suggestions from me since I had only been in the clan for 6 months" good for you, that you left the clan. Anything else would have been wasted time. If its frowned up on for soldiers to come with different ideas, that are at least logical and make some sense, the clan is shit. On a different level its one of the disadvantage the red army and to some degree the western allies had, compared to the early/mid war Wehrmacht during WWII.

  35. Well, always when Captain Tomato in his heavy tank drove down into the valley on the old map, he usually died in seconds! And we can't have that! We can't have all the Captain Tomatoes get frustrated because they makes up the majority of WOT player! And so they filled up the middle of the valley with lots of garbage so that Captain Tomato has cover when he drives down. ^^

  39. Wow i'm a bit surprised at the ammount of respones hehe... any way i'll try to adress them all: I know, I wasn't a big fan myself but at the end of the day how you evaluate skill doesn't matter, only how well can it predict a winning team. You are assuming here that good players influence game results, which is supported in the final grpahs so I don't really see an issue, as for the battles count, you are correct in principle but the error in those final values I cut was good enough for me, but more battles will make it better. And to ease your mind a bit more: I tested 80,000 ba

  40. I can't get my win rate over 70% consistently ;_;. Ill do 72-5 one day then 66 the next. But what i mean is, how could you tell how consistent he was? You mentioned one month of blue not being a proven track record. How could you tell it was simply a month?

  42. In some ways, an undisclosed "recipe" is better. It's hard to pad when you're not sure how the formula works. On the other hand, it's hard to judge the validity of a rating when you have no idea what it is based on. All rating systems will be subject to some flaws. This is clearly evidenced by the fact that win rate alone was the second worst indicator. Still, it's nice to see ratings fulfill their purpose (provide a benchmark as good or better than WR) for the majority of players, outliers be damned.
