    CW Reward Tanks - A Brief Guide

    Many of us will soon have to decide what CW reward tank to pick. In looking at what tank I want, I compiled this following guide. Below in each spoiler is a link to tanks.gg showing the reward tank next to its closest tech tree vehicle. I then highlight some of the more significant differences and add my personal verdict on the tank. Below the spoilers you will find two rankings of the tanks. This guide is my opinion but I try to give each tank a fair shake based on an examination of the stats, personal play experience, and word of mouth (since I haven't played all of them). -Comparison of all 5 reward tanks- 121B T95E6 Object 907 M60 VK72.01 Ranked by Power Based on whether the tank is actually good Object 907 M60 VK7201 121B T95E6 Ranked by Uniqueness How different is it from existing tech tree vehicles? T95E6 VK7201 121B M60 Object 907

    Bit of a rant here but overall related to the thread: Wtf is wrong with some of these chicks? Alright, I KNOW I'm not the best looking guy out there, I'm not rich, suave, whatever. I know there's limits to the girls I can get, I'm not going to be getting with Megan Fox. But some of these bitches "If you're not over 6' swipe left now" Look bitch, your weigh more than I do and you're 5' 2", don't even have a pretty face, and have 3 cats. Pretty sure you cant afford to be picky.

    This one's epic, so she said she wants to work in a museum, obviously I feigned interest because museums are boring as fuck. Blanked out the name because (#No Shame) I'm still talking to her because while possibly psychotic, she's hot as fuck and I later asked her if she was into kinky shit and she said yes. Now have her on snapchat. Ballin Will I wake up naked, handcuffed to the bed or possibly missing organs? Probably. Worth it? Yolo, it'll make a good story.

    Remember the fun little Kamikaze R everyone earned from the Pearls missions? I enjoy it, and it's now turned into a legendary creature since the Minekaze that we knew is no more. I looked at the Warships today site for examples of people who played it a lot, and there are people who play almost nothing but it. The best players by WTR average between 100-300 games in it - nothing too extreme, but the people who play it all the time .... Jorge_W_Bush 1,113 games 44.47% wr 13.6k dmg and a SOLID 505 WTR (omg - that is a good name though ) 12PK_JARHEAD60 1.059 games 43.81% wr 18.2kdmg with a 593 WTR ( Marine likes beer? Nah ...) and either his alt or his brother 12PKMAIN 1,207 games 46.89% wr 19.7k dmg and a 641 WTR One guy named SmilinBob_fighter has 2,532 battles - JUST IN THE KAMIKAZE R! He is not bad in it, but his Shimakaze is at 41% wr over 100 games. How bad they might be is not the point I am trying to make, I'm in no place to criticize other peoples play, yet the fact remains that there are over 50 people with 1,000 games in the Kamikaze R alone, and if Wargaming opened this up to people who had 750,000 unredeemed free xp for the Missouri - everyone one of them would have one on DAY ONE. I don't want Jorge, 12PACK or his buddy getting ANYWHERE near that ship so they can pollute the higher tiers with their game spamming shit lord play. If they do blow the $100 plus dollars to actually get it, at least it will help insure the long term viability of the company providing the game that I like to play. Giving away OP little DD's like the Kamikaze R at tier 5 was not a great idea, but understandable since they were trying to build a community - giving away an OP tier 9 BB would be inexcusable, and a real detriment to the community.

    Who the fuck married that first off, second who would be stupid enough to look at that and think yum? let me go vomit. What. The. Fuck. Princess...right. Not sure if fake or not, superliked the fuck out of it regardless. No. Not Surprisingly, not the first tranny I've seen. Had to Google "Pansexual" because of this shit. When the fuck did that become a thing? I don't want to live on this planet anymore. Alright this one requires some background. 100% not a fake profile. we had a mutual facebook friend, a cousin of mine who went to U Albany. so I sent him this screenshot and asked him about her and apparently she tried setting one of the campus buildings on fire, then transferred to U Pittsburgh.. He offered to set me up with her, told him I didn't need that kind offered crazy in my life.

    How possible do you think it would be to play two accounts at the same time, not switching between them but having two mice with all movement controls bound to each one?(Yes, you can control the game with exclusively a 5 button mouse, I've tested it before)

    CW Reward Tanks - A Brief Guide

    Knowing about the buffs picking the VK is a nobrainer for me. After the buff it will be an E-100 that trades (reliable)sidearmor for slightly better speed/mobility and much better frontal armor (the LFP will be able to reliably bounce any round with less than 270 penetration and there are still many pubbies who refuse to spam gold) plus you can actually can go hulldown. The buffed gun will be carboncopy of the current E-100-gun (with the then buffed AP-pen and the dispersion values will also be buffed to E-100-level unlike what @dualmaster333 said (https://vk.com/wotclue?w=wall-70226354_365233)) 121B and T95E6 are just glorified dogshit and the M60 is only interesting if you don´t already have the patton.

    "I don't believe in stats" "Stats mean nothing" I want to kill the pub players that say stupid shit like this. You don't have to be obsessed with your stats, but are you really going to try and tell me it's just a coincidence my win rate is over 20% higher than yours or that I at least do my HP in damage in my battleships while you barely do half? Keep up the great work @WarshipsToday, I use your site nearly every day.

    So the brief bit I had seen about the VK buffs seems to only be a part of it. With the full list provided above, the tank gets a lot more interesting. Equivalent firepower to the E-100 is good. The frontal armor starts to get really good - straight on the upper front plate reaches 360+ effective while the LFP reaches 310-320. That's better than the VK4502B. Meanwhile the turret only has a thin strip on each side of the mantlet that can be easily penetrated. So it should be really tough from the front with the only real weakness being the 170 region on the side during side scrapes. I'm also undecided between the 907, 121B, and VK7201. The 907 is by far the most useful, but I already have a T-62A and 140 that I never play because wedges are boring. I feel like the 121B is likely to get a DPM buff and at that point it could become a reasonably fun tank....but again it is already similar to tanks I don't play. After looking at the supertest buffs for the VK I am leaning toward choosing that. The idea of a 4502B (which I enjoy) at tier 10 sounds pretty fun. I envision poking my front around a corner at a steep angle and bouncing JPE HEAT rounds off my lower plate. Or triple VK platoons rushing field on Malinovka Maus style...

    How long have people played tanks for? It's a long term goal for f2p players and an easy way to milk whales in the short term. Neither of these are bad. You also need 750k XP earned on ships to convert so it gates shitters from insta getting a T9. QQ moar

    There are some technical reasons why the intervals are the way they are. We are striking a balance between snapshots available and data size on the database. It could be that the data we're handling from a purely "number of records" perspective surpasses what the average U.S. company handles, and this is done on a basically shoestring budget. We are making a best-effort attempt to use "standard" intervals like 7d or 90d for signatures, bit it's not always possible. If you play every day and check your stats out on Warships.Today every day then it should be easier for Warships.Today to do that. If not, then we may not have the snapshots available in the database to do that. If you believe you've played every day and checked your profile on Warships.Today but the intervals are still very odd then let us know.

    I will update this OP as discussions are made and tanks are added/removed from either the tech tree or gift shop. Each tier (5 through 8 ) will be broken into 4 groups Group 1: BUY BUY BUY! If you see this tank, and can get it, do it Group 2: The Average. These tanks don't stand out, but they also don't fall flat on their face. Worth a buy if you already own something better Group 3: Can be fun? These tanks don't appeal to everyone, but do have redeeming qualities and meme potential. Only buy if you need a very specific trainer Group 4: No. No. No (the Family Guy 'Consuela' Group). The ultimate shit-gift group Notables: WG is releasing a couple new prems over the holidays. I have no idea what they are or how they play, but I should be getting many of the newer premiums gifted by WG to my account to review Many of the tier 5 and 6 premiums, I never owned or I owned them when I was a REALLY bad player Some tanks have only ever been released once, such as Beta Tanks or special events and are left off for that reason (But, if SerB needs $$$ they will release them again... coughcoughMutant6coughcough Tier 8 premiums are a special group, and will be broken down further than the other tiers. Tier 5 Tier 6 Tier 7 Tier 8

    I think the STA-2 is the best tier 8 medium in its current form, with the 45 kph top speed, so I don't get why people hate on it so much. But a truly quirky tank that I enjoy is the M4 Revalorise, in its current state.

    ***Start Survey*** ***Part 1 – Demographic Data*** Directions: Please fill in the missing data World of Tanks Screen Name, TheSovereign Server (NA, EU, RU, SEA… ) , NA Battles Played, 13861 Average Win Rate, 56.32% Average WN8, 2225 Recent WN8, 2891 Recent Win Rate, 58.43% ***Part 2 – Your Expectations for Other Players*** Directions: Listed below are 6 different questions that pertain to 3 different groups of players. The 3 groups are “Bad”, “Average”, and “Good”. It is not my intent to quibble about what makes a player good or bad, and you are welcome to your own opinion. But for the purposes of this survey we will use the following numbers, which roughly group players into the top and bottom 20% of the player base, with everyone else being average. “Bad” means less than a 47% recent win rate “Average” means between 47% and 54% recent win rate “Good” means above a 54% recent win rate For each of these groups, you will be asked to rate the potential of that friendly tank to do further damage to enemy tanks by the end of the game. The groups are subdivided the relative tier of the tank compared to the battle tier, and again by their remaining health. For this survey, assume that “low health” means that tank will die the next time it’s hit. Give a number of shots of damage you think that tank will do by the end of the game. Use integers such as 0, 1, 2, 3. For example, if you think an “Average” player in a full health medium tank will do 7 shots of damage per game, answer “7”. Do not attempt to consider what actual tier the tanks are, i.e. a tier 8 tank is simply “top tier” in battle tier 8, and “bottom tier” in battle tier 10. Also do not attempt to consider the damage per shot of the gun, answer only in the number of penetrating shots regardless of actual damage output. A “Bad” player driving a top tier tank on full health, 2 A “Bad” player driving a middle tier tank on full health, 2 A “Bad” player driving a bottom tier tank on full health, 1 A “Bad” player driving a top tier tank on low health, 1 A “Bad” player driving a middle tier tank on low health, 1 A “Bad” player driving a bottom tier tank on low health, 0 An “Average” player driving a top tier tank on full health, 4 An “Average” player driving a middle tier tank on full health, 3 An “Average” player driving a bottom tier tank on full health, 2 An “Average” player driving a top tier tank on low health, 2 An “Average” player driving a middle tier tank on low health, 1 An “Average” player driving a bottom tier tank on low health, 1 A “Good” player driving a top tier tank on full health, 6 A “Good” player driving a middle tier tank on full health, 5 A “Good” player driving a bottom tier tank on full health, 5 A “Good” player driving a top tier tank on low health, 4 A “Good” player driving a middle tier tank on low health, 4 A “Good” player driving a bottom tier tank on low health, 2 ***Part 3 – Your Actual Playstyle*** Directions: Please rate each question on a scale of 1-5, where 1 means you completely disagree, and 5 means you completely agree. Please answer truthfully, and base your answer on how you really act in a typical random battle. I sacrifice my own health to preserve my teammates’ health, 2 I sacrifice my own health to keep a teammate alive, 3 I would sacrifice my tank so that teammate would live, 1 I position my tank to support low health or struggling my teammates, 4 I position my tank to try to share damage with nearby teammates, 2 Keeping friendly tanks alive is the best way to ensure a win, 3 Other players are responsible for staying alive on their own, 4 I do more to help friendly tanks that are higher tier, 4 I do more to help friendly tanks that are driven by “good” players,5 ***Part 4 – Optional Comment*** If you so desire, write a brief comment (~25 words) describing your philosophy on saving teammates in random battles. Comments, I will not sacrifice my personal health with 2 exceptions, if the other player is a good player, or if the player has shown teamwork and intentionally assisted me during the battle. ***End Survey***

Space is awesome.Anything space related is awesome. combine this fact with the absolutely astounding detail to character development and overall story these games have. Never really have been drawn to a series of games like these since, although Witcher 3 is up there in terms of quality. Really looking forward to Andromeda.

    Original article by @A_Chodeful The Method One of the things that I'm often asked by purples and blues is how to become better, and I could never find a decent response to that question, and always left it to others to give canned advice and tips - this is because these players from my first-hand experience, already knew the basics of the game, they knew how to abuse vision range, camouflage, game mechanisms, and the vast majority of good map spots. In short, they just knew how to play their tanks, very well in fact. So why did it seem that they were stuck in a rut? Because they simply haven't been putting themselves in punishing situations nearly as often as they should be, and this can be seen by the canned advice they're given when they ask for help: Watch the replays of other, preferably better players to watch how they play Go back to the lower tiers to master what you've already learned Platoon with better players or have them review your replays Though there are many varieties to the responses, these three are the most common, and all are flawed: Watching the replays of other players is not the same as being in and having to make the decisions they make in that situation - it's easy enough to say you'll do this in this situation and that in that - but the problem here is that only basic situations remain the same (i.e. team goes to these spots in this map and that map), the details almost never duplicate themselves - so you have to develop a sense for the situation that simply watching won't develop - this is the equivalent of reading a math solution to a complex problem that you couldn't crack, then thinking you now understand it and can do it all. Going back to the lower tiers to master what you've already learned is a horrible idea, not only are the meta-games different for each and every set of tiers, such as T10/9 being dominated by alpha damage and vision range, and T1/2 dominated by fast game-speed and disproportionate damage-dealing capabilities where tanks have ten times their HP in DPM - the players also get worse the lower you de-tier, so any jump in performance you see in lower tiers is only the result of you seal-clubbing deaf-mute zombies who run the worst possible set-ups while grinding through the tech tree, and not you actually improving. Platooning with better players doesn't work well at all, all that happens is that you're able to maximize your win rate. For the most part, you'll be too busy bothering with your flank or fights to pay much attention to their actions, and in the end, you're just riding along their coattails as they carry you to a win you don't really understand - since they'll be too busy padding their own stats or thinking/fighting to tell you their thought process and what they're thinking in each situation. So, how do you improve in the fastest, most brutal, efficient, and stats-damaging way possible (unless you plan to follow my advice on an alt account)? You go straight to the highest tiers as fast you can and stay there, solo-pubbing in average tanks - playing next to no games outside of the double digit battle tiers other than to take a break or to grind some credits. This advice also applies to yellow and green players as well, though they should read through the game mechanisms article on the WOT WIKI at least once just to make sure they have the basic mechanisms understood. But why does this approach work? Taking an average tank like the M46 Patton or M103, and jumping straight to solo-pubbing in T9/10 battle tiers? These tiers represent a high where everyone is more or less on an equal footing, everyone's finished their stock grinds for the most part, they have equipment, consumables, crews with multiple perks and skills researched, and know at the least, the very basics of the game, so least the base quality is as high as it can be in pub games. It should also be noted that the occurrence of blue players and unicums are very frequent in T9/T10 battle tiers, a quick look through my high tier replays with XVM on will show this. The extreme accuracy of the guns and view ranges also contribute to the harshness of which punishment is dealt to mistakes in such a tier - any mistakes you make in an average tank in one way or another will be punished - typically by a brutally accurate barrage of shells coming from invisi-tanks that either cripples or outright kills you. Consider that platooning makes you complacent and prone to making mistakes that your platoonmates cover - what do you think happens when you take away that bit of insurance? Your mistakes are punished even more heavily - thus driving you to make even less mistakes and better calls. To sum it all up, go straight to the highest tiers (T9/10) and solopub there for hundreds or if you have the time, thousands of battles, preferably in non-overpowered tanks to force yourself even more to make even less mistakes and even better calls - this is all a first-hand experience as well, all application, little theory involved. Anyways, this experience in the high tiers will do damage to your stats, so I suggest keeping it all to one tank that you can write off as a training tank, or an outlier in the sea of high performance T9/T10 tanks people will find in your statistics when they check. An addition as well, to constantly be seal-clubbed as you try to get better can be tiring, and can burn you out, so I recommend finding another person's account to sockpuppet or dick around in. Supporting the Claims This is how I went from being a running a 45% in my Lowe to running a 58% in my E50 in less than a thousand battles when I first started the game (I free-EXPed to the E50 with the EXP I grinded in the Lowe), while the ability to pick things up quick helped, the fact I didn't go through the tier advancement process probably helped me the most, where I was routinely punished by players who had come out of closed beta for my dicking arounds. It’s also worth mentioning that as soon as I started platooning with other unicums or players, I hit another rut, which I climbed out of again one to thousand battles ago when I started pure solo-pubbing again (i.e. taking up requests to do challenges, and then moving on to solo-pubbing outside of challenges) - now I find myself hitting and exceeding 70% win rate easily, and doing 4000-5000 DPG for T9/T10. Also, if you look to the other servers, you'll notice that the very best of the RU/EU servers do something like to this, emu87 for example, solopubbed almost exclusively - Luciquell and Straik/Kirilloid often solopub in T10/T9 games as well, only getting together for special streams. These are the people who top that damage-output boards in their servers while maintaining win rates in the 70s, and in the case of Kirilloid and Straik, also participate in and win multiple competitions a-la-Ural-Steel. This experience will also make you a supreme clubber in tiers lower than 9 and 10. Ever notice how seal-clubbers like Autism_Speaks and Marxist can perform on unicum levels in low tiers, and some Hellcat-padder can pull off great numbers in the mid-tiers but never the high tiers? Then notice how people who perform exceedingly well in higher tiers also perform exceedingly well in mid-tiers and become literal gods in low-tiers? This is because everything you learn in highest tiers can be used in lower tiers, but only part of what you learn in lower tiers can be used in the highest tiers.
