  1. It's a consequence of WG's many shitty design decisions, really. Artillery creates corridors/camps because you need a safe zone of some sorts to not be destroyed (on Prok, that means don't get spotted), the massive render distance compared to map size leads to never wanting to cross any open ground and the weird camo/spotting system, combined with generally bad map design, means that you can't even be sure which bush the invisible guy shoots from. I mean, let's be brutally honest and ignore our general top player tendencies here: We're now complete shitters, new 45%'ers for the grinder an

  3. the #1 thing pubbies are afraid of is multiple angles of fire their brains cannot process, no situational awareness to work with this is the same reason why they love valley on lakeville and 8 line on abbey etc

  6. This was pretty fun, this guy started the game by bitching about XVM win chance so I called him shit and told him to carry harder. Naturally he shoots me to prove he is a tough guy. I ignored it, but a few minutes later I happened to see he was a one shot so of course I took the shot. Even though that hurts me when I'm working on MOE's, it was 100% worth it.

    the expecteds drop by about 30-50 dpg each update they do for the T10 arties, but the bigger problem with them is it is relatively hard to do far better than the average pubbies due to the RNG nature of it, the way that you can in other vehicles, meaning it's hard to pull high WN8 in them (since it's about exceeding the averages).

    Wn8 and Arty

    This question must come up at least once a month, I swear... The expected values for arty take into account the old numbers from before the huge arty nerf of 8.6; in other words, arty expected values are super high because it used to be much easier to deal shitloads of damage in, and the values can't be artificially lowered or else it would super-inflate the WN8 of people who played arty and got high damage in them before the nerf.

  25. Sides of lower plate is by far the best frontal weakspot. right next to the sprockets. On HD E5, even prem ammo is sketchy on cupola now. Green areas are between 190-210 effective armor.

  27. As someone who also has a heavy focus, I have 2 problems with meds 1. I cannot aim. A combination of bad fps and atrocious coordination means muh aim is potato so snaping around my aim in fast tanks is hard 2. yoloing everything. Meds dont need to yolo forwards like heavies do or end up in danger of not getting damage, you can sit back with them and be safe. I kinda fixed this after torturing myself relentlessly playing the churchill gc for 100 games which forces you to camp or die so I can now become one with beush. no more yolo autopilot

    Chieftain Mark 6 Preview

    Chinese server player here. AFAIK there's no confirmed purchase of this tank at all. Rumor says that it might be priced at 10K+ CNY but I haven't seen a single video / stream / screenshot of a purchased one yet. Maybe Wargaming hasn't decided how to implement Chieftain exactly otherwise it should be purchasable (if not to be implemented on tech tree) at Chinese server already. Since 9.12 time-limited Chieftains have been handed out to some video producers / streamers / people who paid lots of money. Besides, there were some events in which you can win time-limited Chieftain as well. Right

  30. Not super effective in randoms. You're releasing a spread which you might need to dissuade an American or Russian DD in the early game or which you can use to force someone off a cap. Plus your torps are far more likely to be spotted that early in the game.

  32. Going from heavies to mediums can be alot more difficult than it seems. Tbh i recommend taking a NATO medium tank first because it eases you down into 390 alpha rather easily. The E50M may fit you perfectly as it does have a heavium playstyle. Other than that the patton, stb, batchat, and cent ax are all fantastic alternatives in their respective role. Thats tier X for you. I would put ru meds, but going from slow hulking beasts with long aim times and high alpha to 320 alpha high dpm medium tanks can be extremely aggravating to get into and may leave an undesired result.

    Well, that's one small reason of many that people say WN8 is broken... one of the biggest problems with it is referenced in crabs signature.

  35. It use to be rare to get teams where 8 or 9 team members do 0, 1, or 2 shots of damage then die, Now it seems to happen every few battles. Especially in higher tiers. How can these players afford to constantly play higher tiers? are they buying credits from the premium shop?

    The render changes have definitely changed pubbie behaviour on Prok on EU, the HP is shifting from the 1 line to the hill in most cases, I do try and active spot but just haven't be able to build up the total damage needed that way. Put it this way........ I honestly would rather spend eternity trying to do HT-12 in a TOG then play arty

  39. I just want them to give it back the supertest gun stats and buff the prem pen. Remodeling the hull to get rid of the cheeks would be nice also, but clearly that will never happen. Yeah the armor was problematic at times, however the only thing that was consistently fucking me over was the gun. Its nearly unplayable. The gun handling is horrible, the reload is only 1 sec shorter than the e100 with nearly 300 less DPM, it has 50 less prem pen, the accuracy is garbage. Its one of those tanks whos good games rely entirely on RNG being kind due to how derpy the gun and pathetic the gun i

  40. And the same reason why WG reworked most maps into corridors, so pubbies' two brain cells could cope with it. As for the OP question. Most certainly noticeable, they just sit in the worst fucking spots in vision maps because they don't want to get spotted.

  42. The Fv cant sidescrape either though, even head on the *things* sticking out the hull side (below the turret) can be penetrated by anything (150mm effective at best), its like tiger P shoulders, except they are sitting on the side. The UFP is also soft, unless you angle backwards, and the hatch on top is also a nasty weakspot (and the turret face is also not made of Stalinium like IS4 / ST-1, it can be penetrated by high pen guns / high tier HEAT) The tank simply always shows a nasty weakspot, and thats when you try to actually hide them, if your not in cover, you have effective almo
