  1. WoT in its current state is a broken game. WG seems to have understood this but I for one have lost my trust in their capability of solving major balancing issues. Two issues in particular need fixing: 1. Class balance Artillery: On some maps, arty is unplayable because it can hardly hit anything (city maps like Kharkov or Himmelsdorf). On the other hand, it completely dominates on open maps like Prokorovkha or Malinovka – having too many artilleries on such maps makes them painful to play in all other classes. In general, low tier artilleries are very ineffective

A new rule has been added for all purple poasters: We have to be somewhat active on the forums – not necessarily by posting but just by logging in and seeing what is going on and see any new important discussions in our internal purple poaster area. So the new requirement is to have been logged in to the forums at least once per 3 months (as a start). I’ll be running activity checks every month to keep an eye. Stricter activity rules may be enforced at a later point, but we are starting with this for now. I have made this public thread about it because I want transparancy about what is going o

  6. What I would do for light tanks, exception being the tier 8: Give them pref MM, but for a tank 1 tier higher. IE: Bulldog has the IS6 MM. Will always see tier 8s, will never see tier 10s.

    I put permanent camo on all my keepers irrespective of class. Partly for aesthetics, partly for the bonus because every little helps.

  14. +1/-1 mm will kill wot. It will be fun for the first few months, but after that games will become incredible dull. And a bigger problem is that after 3 years of crap balance, most tanks are actually fairly well balanced now, light tanks are crap, but light tanks should be gimmick anyway, the main classes, heavys, mediums & TDs are all sort of balanced**. Making mm +1/-1 means WG has to start all over again with balancing (and yes they will have to, and yes this will AGAIN take 3 years...) **: balanced as in, no OP tanks and no massive gaps between ``the best`` and ``the

  17. i find it kinda funny when people say that light tanks only have to maps that they are "needed" on... sure, having a light tank on prok is nice, but i would rather have a medium instead. Any tier 9/10 medium tank is superior to any and all light tanks currently ingame

  18. As others have said, moving to +1/-1 MM would be a huge change and would break the game even more. Whole swathes of tanks would need re-balancing and many tanks would also no longer be matched against their historical foes.

  20. Solution to rebalance arty: An optional click box that says "Play games without arty". As for lights and TDs, I've been thinking that bigger maps (1200M) might help the problem. Keep the bases close to each other so that slow tanks can still reach the prime areas easily enough. But this extra space naturally makes vision more important and opens up far more opportunities for flanking and long-range sniping.

    It's amazing what having a platoon buddy grinding with you can do. Had two grind sessions on my Pershing yesterday, one in the morning, one in the evening. The morning one, solo, was just frustration, and had me turning the game off in disgust. But in the evening nagged my buddy to join me, he didn't want to grind the Cent 1 (which is understandable as it's terrible) but 30 off games later we we had won 65%, made a decent amount of credits and were only 35k XP off our tier 9s. Laughing off the bad games, keeping the banter going meant no tilt and having someone to back me up at

  26. The Plan: Use the Mutz rental this evening and play it just enough to acquire the 1-skill commander for new German crew with instant 6th sense. Then unlock Patton KR and try to 3 mark it just during rental periods over the next few weeks. Lastly, get a good reminder of how bad the CDC really is and cry.

  27. In regards to the profitability of gold shells, you can make money, but if you miss more than 1 your fucked. Alot of tryhard clans, TOTEM, ARAVT, R-7, S-A-R ect. fire full HEAT out of their meds and barely pull 2.5k damage. imho WG should incentivise firing regular ammo more, only t10 meds have a reason to fire non gold due to the shell velocity. As for gold rounds, heat is discouraged when facing spaced or sloped armor, but there is NO reason not to fire APCR premium ammo as it is in all ways better than the standard.

  28. While obviously a better solution than the current one, the central problem still remains: There is no point in slapping armor on a tank if you can just cut through that shit like it isn't even there and it's honestly the worst mechanic I've ever seen in a PvP game. It's Chinese Mobile Phone Game level pay2win, where you can neuter an entire class and game mechanic by throwing some gold or time (via cred grind) at the problem. Ironically, the gold spam problem becomes even more of a mechanic in favor of stronger players since they can cred farm to a much more efficient extent than the average

  29. IMO, LTs should be re-labelled to mediums and shoved around the tech tree with various buffs and nerfs as alternate lines or replacing really shitty lower tier meds. They will never be useful as long as they're simply worse medium tanks anyway, so you might as well turn them into actual mediums that focus more on speed and gun handling but do less damage and have better camo or something. Arty redesign and map reworks go hand in hand, so that issue is really difficult to crack. While World of Corridors was also partly to buff HTs and nerf mediums, the true reason for them is to block the

  30. Cliff. You're in G8 in an O I Exp, stopping the advance of the enemy blue O I exp and the 4 tier IV that accompany him. The base starts being capped, because they have broken through the 1 line. There's a KV 1 in G5. He's stayed there passively for most of the game, but, still, he's 7K games/52% . What do you expect him to do: 1) Go back and reset 2) OH GREAT, I FINALLY REMEMBER WHAT KEY I BOUND 'FORWARD" TO, what's this annoying siren sound I hear? AH, WHO CARES, ENEMY BASE, HERE I COME! Well, PLOT TWIST : this moron has 3108 games in the M2 LT, and 2688 in th

  32. Yeh LFP is poor, at least mine is, people seem to pen it easily. Thing is if they revert the cupola then I'm selling this tank, it was poor before with every fcking tier 8 able to snap shot that stupid tumor on your turret, a weak spot you can't bloody hide. They should make the LFP weaker and keep the cupola as it is. The cupola is too stupidly big and ruined the tank before. That or they should change cupola shot to like 30% damage like AW has. The issue is you can take E5 and drive at people and they panic (+RNG), failing to hit the right areas of the LFP, the LFP used

  35. Hard to say, they are both quite strong (for TDs anyway) in their own right. Borsig still has retarded camo and can use the 150mm effectively, but is definitely not the most flexible tank. It's a "kemp bush or just shoot people in the face for 750 in corridor maps" tank. WT4 profits from the really good 128mm, is quite flexible, has 600 more HP and has a back mounted turret. While still good the camo is not as crazy as the Borsig though, so it can't pull off some stuff the Borsig can, and the 150mm really isn't viable. It does better at being a pseudo-medium and accurate sniping, but

  43. My WoT days lately have been so cancerous that I'm thinking of a break because everything I do in battles just seems to be wrong... Behind every corner an unspotted TD, every time I get lit I get clicked and if I want to play aggressive the enemy leaves my flank totally open. Really frustrating... But I got lucky once. 9-8k on the TVP. At this rate my DPG is just dropping every battle and I'm having a hard time just keeping the MOEs -_- http://wotreplays.eu/site/2445434#lakeville-x3n4-tvp_t_50_51

  46. Aaaand with this message you earned yourself a 3-day RO from these forums as well. I wonder if your misfortune from the game has carried over to these forums since you managed to get a temporary ban here as well? Thead is also locked and binned, as it clearly doesn't lead to anything good from here.
