    Foch played this one brilliantly tho. From a publicity point of view, he just couldn't lose. If WG stays silent, he becomes "the man who stands for the common people" If WG acts, he becomes "the oppressed hero" Worst case scenario is losing CC status, which doesn't really mean shit as far as youtube views go. Now lets just see if anyone tries to one-up him.

    Yes. I also like it when WG want to make CW great again and then release tanks which are instantly meta in CW that you can BUY with REAL MONEY and skip ALL the GRINDS. I also like it when you can BUY a tank that is flat out BETTER than ALL (bar IS-3 because that's a medium/heavy/td/spg all in one) other tanks in the same tier for pubs giving you no incentive to actually grind tanks because fuck that, I'll just buy something better than what i need to earn. Its a game that rewards the grind. Or was. If they want to make money long term, this wouldn't have happened. It seems their business plan has shifted to short term profits at the expense of game longevity and this outcry is because WE ENJOY THE GAME and don't want it to die. edit: Seriously though, what the fuck is the point of actually grinding when you just play a tier 9 in tier 8 which you can buy which renders all your other tier 6-8 obsolete since MM will be full of OP tanks which you can't do anything about?

    opinions on sirfoch being censored?

    Once again, Youtube is not the government, Foch posts content on Youtube and gets paid for it - WG attempting to convince Youtube to issue a Copyright Strike was a bullshit move, but its not censorship. I'm not arguing that WG is not being shady as fuck, but censorship is what North Korea and Iran do - when we try to hang that tag on some gamers having a quibble over a Youtube video - we diminish the weight of the word censor.

    I think perhaps people need a lesson on what censorship means. If the state restricts what you as a consenting adult can communicate with other consenting adults - that is censorship. If an entity that you enter into a business agreement with restricts what you, as their business partner, can say regarding matters of their business - that is called work. WG did not censor Foch, they terminated a business relationship - which either party can do at any time with or without cause. Now, we as customers also get a voice in the matter because we also enter into a voluntary business relationship with WG which either of us is also free to terminate at any time.

    Relic Gaming Community

    Why The RELIC Community? • RELIC is a long standing clan within World of Tanks. We have built a quality community that has survived and thrived through the good times and bad times that Wargaming has given us. • We aim to develop potential, have fun, and excel at the game in both individual combat & in Clan Wars. We also strive to maintain high standards, respect, and competence in all battles that we are engaged in. • The RELIC Community values team-play and strongly encourages our members to platoon together, preferably in our TS, in order to co-ordinate and communicate effectively. • We, as a community, are interested in quality players over quantity. You can have the best stats in the game but if you can’t follow calls or strive to bring drama into the clan then we are not the clan for you. We want our tankers to get to know our each other as friends and comrades. Relic Community Shenanigans Who remembers when that map was in CW? Spawn…Insta lit Highway against SIMP with some pretty bad karaoke Abby Arty Party, blowing off steam and having a good time What Relic expects from you: • As a member, you will understand the Relic Community rules, attempt to actively participate in (or at least lurk on) our community website, uphold our standards in ability, competence and conduct. • You will need to be available for training (some divisions), clan wars, and strongholds on a regular basis (real life allowing). • Members should be able to follow commands, perform to their potential, respect teammates and enjoy winning. Members should also be thick skinned and be willing to take criticism. • You will need to install and use Teamspeak 3. TS is a must for Clan Wars and preferred at all other times, you must have TS for all clan events, even if you can only hear and cannot speak, our TS is also open to the public. What you can expect from Relic: Access to our forums, Teamspeak server and our community. A group of like minded players to platoon with, grind XP and credits for next tier tanks, share tips/advice on tanks and gameplay, or just sit around on TS chatting about your latest pub battle. Clan War battles and plenty of them. We don’t like to sit around just farming gold. Map exhibitions - Main has won 5 and have been top 3 in every one they have played in and 2nd has done well in these with 2nd finishing in the Semi's in the last few. CTA (clan) tournaments - Main usually finishes 1st or 2nd in Abso's while 2nd has been finishing 1st or 2nd in Champions. Stronghold battles and skirmishes aplenty, with frequent credit bonuses in most divisions. Sound leadership, with proven records and a drama free environment. The chance to become an officer or to call battles as we're always looking for our members to step up. Requirements to join the Relic Community Remember these are just our guidelines and nothing is set in stone. Even if you meet the requirements for stats and tanks, you still have to go through an evaluation process and be approved by our members as well. REL MAIN 1. Minimum 2000 Overall WN8 2.

You can climb the ladder and move through the ranks as many before you have done. Relic is a great community where you can learn team play and move up the "ladder" into more competitive clans within the community. While you may apply to a specific division, there is a chance you will be accepted into a different division. This is based upon what we feel you would be better suited for at the time of your application. Relic Gaming is a tiered community where we aim to train people for clan wars in Aux and then move them up through 2nd, and onward into Main.

    If you like arcade-ish spaceship/spacefighter shooters, or just want to play a decent game no matter the genre, check out Strapoint Gemini 2, it's for free on Steam right now, along with the Origins DLC, and will be until tomorrow (24th 10PM pacific IIRC).

    opinions on sirfoch being censored?

    SerB: I'll answer the question. You want answers? SirFoch: I think I'm entitled! SerB: You want answers?! SirFoch: I want the truth! SerB: You can't handle the truth! Son, we live in a world that has virtual walls, and those virtual walls have to be guarded by men with virtual tanks. Who's gonna do it? You? You, SirFoch? I have a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom. You weep for poor tank design and you curse Wargaming. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know, that poor tank design, while tragic, made Wargaming an assload of money. And my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, makes assloads of money! You don't want the truth, because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me on that virtual wall. You need me on that virtual wall. We use words like "honor", "code", "loyalty". We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punchline. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very service that I provide, and then questions the manner in which I provide it! I would rather you just said "thank you", and went on your way. Otherwise, I suggest you get in a virtual tank, and play the damn game. Either way, I don't give a damn what you think you are entitled to!

    opinions on sirfoch being censored?

    There's two problems with tanks like the 252/defender and this new Chrysler abomination. One is that they render their tech-tree counterparts obsolete. And I don't just mean they're roughly as good or that there's a tradeoff, I mean that tanks like the IS-3 and T32 are now completely inferior to these new premiums. Normally that wouldn't be the end of the world, they'd just get nerfed in the next patch. But no, these are premiums and therefore un-nerf-able. Genius. The second problem is the inherent cancer that's found in the armor meta. When a tank's front armor is strong and has no weakspot, then the thing becomes mindless to use and mindless to fight against. You run code 22 and either you pen it or you don't. Ends up being pure cancer for the lower tiers, and a nasty credit drain for everyone else. The more that tier 8 gets saturated with these premium fatty tanks, the less it makes sense to play in the mid tiers. Who knows, maybe WG's real plan is to use these cancerous tumors to encourage players to run their tier 9s and 10s more often. So that brings us to Foch. Honestly, I'd say that if anything, he wasn't harsh enough with WG. His points couldn't be more valid or justified. Yes, it is WG's goal to make money. But there's lots of ways to do it without being complete potatoes. Of course they were going to react to him, but in doing so they've only shot themselves in the foot. Serves them right.

    Having his CC status revoked is one thing, but threatening him with a copyright strike and or a defamation action is another thing altogether. Saying that Foch deserves what he got because he was rude, vulgar and demeaning is neither here nor there. As a youtuber, he should be able to get away with criticising WG because that's how free speech works. You could well argue that his saying WG were greedy scumbags is slanderous, and that might be true, but it seems to be an opinion, an honest comment, if you will. WG is perfectly entitled to revoke Foch's CC status. But AFAIK there's no contract involved, nor is there an NDA which would bar Foch from saying what he likes on what he likes. What seems to be the gist of the backlash is WG threatening a legal action where there was no basis to do so, and where doing so would amount to nothing short of censorship.

    Europa Universalis IV

    I've been slowly messing around with a colonial game. Basically I made an 800 point custom nation with ridiculous ideas, replaced all of Portugal's territory so they weren't in the game, then killed off Castille. France and Britain have done a little colonizing, but not a whole lot. In Europe I've taken over the Genoa trade node and am steering tons of ducats into it. I really didn't want another European war game so I've been avoiding fighting or expanding too much here. In Africa, I took enough of the Ivory Coast to steer trade into Sevilla. France still has some land down there but I'll be cleaning that up before too long. I colonized all the land around the cape. France managed to settle some islands in the Indian Ocean and were working east, but I smacked them down and took all the land. Thus I have effectively kept all European nations from colonizing past western Africa. I also conquered enough to completely control the Zanzibar trade node so everything I steer into it heads to Europe. This was my first time doing anything in the East Indies and I've learned just how rich the area is. I made a push to colonize most of it while also doing some conquering. Eventually I'll clear out Borneo and possibly Malacca to steer more trade out of this node. Malacca is a tributary under Ming though; I'm feeling too lazy to fight Ming so I might just ignore it. After all, my main focus this game was supposed to be in the Americas: I've been sealing off land to prevent European powers from getting a hold of too much. I allowed the Brits to get some land on the east coast; I couldn't keep everyone out and the trade value in that area doesn't end up in my trade node anyways. But I've cut them and everyone else off from the interior now so I am free to slowly fill in the gaps. I colonized the Caribbean heavily early on and with the new age bonus that gives +3 development for each new colony they're actually pretty strong. Well, at this point the sum total of all my colonies is pretty strong. In South America Scotland has their last remaining land. They are locked in though and won't be expanding anymore. One easy war should clean things up. Then I just have to fill in the interior. Overall plans involve some wars with GB to claim the rest of NA. In the East Indies I'll grab a little more land, maybe colonize more of the islands and such. But mostly I want to fill in all of the Americas. Good thing I can still turn a sizable profit while maintaining 10 colonies....

    Allow me to tell you something about CC standards. One of Polish CC drinks a little pool of beer almost every time he streams. Several times he fell asleep. Still CC. Another one has been caught on promoting cheaters - several times. Still CC.

    Sling the gold, hope it pens, try to avoid his HE shots or he shoots someone else. Also like @TheMarine0341 says kill the support first and isolate him, the type 5 and Maus have essentially become raid bosses these days. Pretty much all my tier 10s now carry about 50% plus more premium ammo than they used to just because of these two tanks.

    WN8 Expected Values Update

    Its important to keep using the infrastructure in place around WN8 rather than try to introduce this as a new rating and kill off WN8 as such. Lots of websites pull WN8 values to feed their webpages and the intent here is to keep those pages current and complete. We can achieve that in the short term by issuing a regular expected values update where the values are in fact averages. In future, for every new tank that comes along we just apply the appropriate values for that that type and tier. In time, the sites will rewrite their code to accept the much simpler expected values table we can generate this way (just 50 sets of values - 1 for each type/tier combination), and then life is easy and the good ship 'WN8' will sail into the sunset with no-one at the helm.

    After grinding Swedish TD's I decided to do some crew training with T-62A... http://wotreplays.com/site/3283050#mountain_pass-ruuhkis-t-62a 1. Good start for a day. After getting Batchat I got bit confused what to do but until then it was a good game by me, can't really figure what I should have done fifferendly. http://wotreplays.com/site/3283060#fisherman_s_bay-ruuhkis-t-62a 2. This game was odd... I got some nice free shots in the beginning and all looked good. After our flank collapsed in 11 min mark I should have bailed out from there... But game was 7-4 to us and I choose to buy time to team and stay. I already noticed that my ability to find good spots to shoot because of lack of gundepression is costing me and in the end, that and my lack of situational awareness killed me. Did I screw up because of my decision to stay? http://wotreplays.com/site/3283072#live_oaks-ruuhkis-t-62a 3. The trend continues. For my part I played badly. I should have gone faster to help our E5 I suppose. Then I messed up with AP/HEAT and ended up shooting non damage shots. Any toughts? http://wotreplays.com/site/3283079#sand_river-ruuhkis-t-62a 4. This was a win but I had no part in it. I took hits from AMX in the first place and didn't make any in return. Then I completely missed shots that were fully aimed against him. And when finally noticed E100 and Type 4 Heavy yoloed against them. Question, when in med that lacks gundepression is it even worth going to middle ditch? http://wotreplays.com/site/3283090#fjords-ruuhkis-t-62a 5. Another prove that I suck. Took position where I tought I can do something... And failed. Basically got executed for nothing. http://wotreplays.com/site/3283107#pilsen-ruuhkis-t-62a 6. Pilsen, my favourite... Not. In the end I might have been more agressive, specially when the E5's rushed I could have followed them. Can someone explain me how did that RU251 survive from what looked like direct arty hit? http://wotreplays.com/site/3283114#erlenberg-ruuhkis-t-62a 7. This game... I did OK'ish damage but that gundepression got me again. I also should have bail out when flank was gone I suppose. I think it was winnable as a team. 268 sat in the corner for sure but that Obj.140 got me wondering... When you unicums play do you play to win or to farm dmg? I'm just wondering could he have done dmg where it counts more, like resetting cap?
