  1. The Case Against The 3/5/7 Match Maker (updated with a 400 game sample size in each MM) A few months ago I studied the changes to the match maker (MM) implemented in patch 9.18 and noted that it pushed players into more matches as a low tier vehicle, as would logically happen with a template that is built like a pyramid with more tanks at the bottom than the top. Initially I was neutral about this change and was only curious about how it would affect the game in general and more specifically me as a player. After a few months of playing and studying the effects of this new system I f

  2. LT's are actually OP because they can circle a maus and a maus cant one shot them with its massive gun. Its true because a 48%er told me so. O wait, 48%ers are now included in supertesting

  4. 3-5-7 means: 3/15 = 20% top tier 5/15 = 33% middle tier 7/15 = 47% bottom tier If there are not enough tanks to make you top tier / too many tank who need bottom tiers, then you will get ``shafted``, but the whole purpose of mm changes was to reduce the games where your the lone tier 8 in a game with nothing but tier 9 and 10, when you are now ``bottom``, half the tanks you face is equal to you, at worst.... the only real ``flaws`` of new mm are: due to 5 top tier max (for tier 8 ) platooning means bottom tier a lot, since both teams need atleast 1 platoon, mor

  7. IS7s problem was never the HP/T but the shitty ground resistance stats. HP/T means close to nothing in this game with all the hidden stats.

  9. I dont understand how WGNA can come even close to claiming 3/5/7 is a success. I mean, all they would have to do to prove its not is click battle in a tier 10 tank and 5 minutes later when they get kicked out of queue they'd be agreeing that yeah, this is actually a terrible system.

  12. T-54-the D-54S and D-10T2C were mounted and saw deployment. In real life both primarily sling HEAT because that ruled the day. T-10, but the tank had dank APCR irl but not in game IS-2(Berlin edition premium tank) because at that stage of the war the red army stopped being a HE spamming noob #truefact SU-152 if you sling HEAT, but that isn't entirely historical, to stay true to historical accuracy you shoot only HE because AP is for bunkers and early soviet HEAT was crap M48A3, although 105mm variant is actually M48A5 M103-its top config is historical, never fought the

  13. I recently picked up the E 50 and after fully upgrading it, I just fell in love this tank. I thought I should share my most recent replays. There is only a moderate amount of APCR spam since I was broke.

  15. ISU and Bat-Chat beg to differ. I honestly think it has more to do with spurring interest in underplayed lines and killing interest in popular tier X lines more than anything else. People who find a tank they like and are good at tend to - surprise - play it a lot. Thats bad for business. Most of the serious balance work has been at tier 10 and tier 8 prems, because thats where the money is. There are many many more horribly balanced tanks in lower tiers, but nobody is cashing in free-XP chips to get the Matilda.

  16. The tank is amazingly good for what it does. Relatively easy to play but what's best is that it scales really well with skill. It's not like an IS-6 or IS-3 where the tank limits your outputs per game (to some degree)but the patriot just keeps being able to push up and up and up because of the characteristics it's got. Good gun, DPM, turret and mobility. This is all you'll need in a tank. Alpha might feel puny for a heavy but once you start shooting and keep doing it, it adds up faster than you'd think. It's the only tank I've been able to break 7k damage in tier 8, and I've done

  19. I was not going to downvote but you just had to drop that word in here: So yeah, negged. Dude, the type 5 is a dumpster with an assault mortar bolted on its face. If you like it because its noob friendly, thats fine, but don't come around here trying to claim its not broken and bad for the game. It has a gold HE round that encourages players to deliberately aim at the dirt underneath opponents FFS.

  20. Ever since Evil Genius came under the Rebellion roof, we’ve always believed that Elixir’s beloved real-time, lair-management and world-domination simulation deserved a follow-up. We’d like to make this super-duper clear – this isn’t a remaster. Evil Genius 2 will be a fully-fledged sequel and it won’t be free-to-play. Our focus currently is on a PC release, but as ever we’ll look at other platforms and see what fits and what doesn’t.

  21. I love your logic. Say something, people point out mistakes in your reasoning but instead of reading what they write call them all elitists to dismiss their posts. Not to mention calling someone elitist is a shitty dig since it claims being a less knowledgable person is somehow better. Are you a Trump voter by any chance? Because I assume anyone who uses elitism as a way to escape criticism is a retard.

    T50 was probably the fastest grind ever for me. Once the top gun is in, it's all downhill. With the 5x weekend and boosts, I got 208k in record time with the kind of damage I can't usually do in Xs. Managed to get the M badge, but it took one hell of a match. 5k games are 1 rank in this thing, you guys weren't kidding. Unlocked and bought TVP. Was wondering how it could get better, but it does - the TVP is much more agile and that extra round is very nice. Hope to get some good games in with it now. Will probably buy the T50 back as well at some point.

  23. I liked the old MM better tbh. Less chance of bottom tier, and you could actually platoon tier x with your friends and not have 100% tier x games for the whole night. Now I solo tier x instead and its boring, but atleast I get to use AP in 50B instead of having to spam full JPE at Maus/Type 5/JPE/e4/e3 that all the pubbies like to use.

    1st note: Holy fuck is your team retarded, going to the castle from that side. There goes the initiative, its the enemy's game to lose. I would have gone and pissed off the TDs before dropping down there, you ended up being pretty ineffective too which was unfortunate. You didn't really do much at all there when the dumbass heavies died. Unfortunate to not notice the T49. You tunnel visioned a bit too much there looking at the lorraine. Your team died so priority would be to get into the corner. Nothing else to really comment on since the game was pretty much lost with

  28. Even if that is true there would be epic levels of shit from every pref player about how their preferential MM is disadvantaged because now effectively every tier 8 is a preferential tier 8 including the ones that were given high pen guns to meet tier 10s. To be fair driving an IS6 vs a defender, chrysler, mle49 or nameless is pretty miserable atm let alone higher tiers.

    The slower your shell velocity, the more the shell arcs. The apcr shell, having higher velocity, does not arc as much. You normally wouldn't notice the shell arc unless you are trying to lead a shot against someone running on top of a ridgeline 500m away, such as a scout in middle of prokhorovka. The ap shell, at 920m/s, will typically end up arcing way overhead into the horizon, while the apcr is flat enough to make the shot. (You need about 1000 m/s for a flat enough shell for this shot). For a much more clear example, compare obj 268 ap and obj 263 apcr on the same ridgeline shot.

  35. IMO the IS-7 is the most balanced tier 10 ATM and has been for a few years. When shit gets powercreeped I'd prefer they nerf things, not buff. Now tier 10 heavies need 3k DPM to be competitive, which is bullshit.

  37. When you're dumb I'm pretty sure you're not conscious of it. For example, if you call someone out in chat during a match for border humping in their BB and their response is something along the lines of 'STFU, I play the game I want to play for fun' they're too dumb to realize that playing the ship correctly actually feels way more rewarding than being a potato.

  38. Lower Tiers are better for examples, Firefly is a nice Tier 6 IKV103 can be pretty good in a Derpy kind of way. Crusader (ish) with the 6 pounder it is a nasty DPM machine, but IRL the 6 pounder had one less crewman... T-34 with the 57mm is historical and in game OP to fuck. Valentine isn't terrible in any of its configs. Arguably KV-2 SU-100 with the 100mm is still good. T-55A is still a nice tank to drive and historical. Comet is good with its historic config also.

  40. You know the best thing? The IS-7 was the best yardstick to use regarding tier 10s since its been balanced for a very long time. The fact that it needs a buff to be competitive speaks wonders about WG's balancing department. edit: By balanced i mean you can roll your face over your keyboard and do 3k damage.

  42. Considering you're not bothering to address the rest of the post, no you are not qualified no matter what you think. Of course that's not the only reason you're not qualified. You barely play tier 10s and you're shit at them anyway. Lets rephrase. "I'm tired of playing other tanks because I'm shit and can't deal with the constant arty bombardment so instead I decide to play the broken land arty and brick wall because it takes less skill and the only decision i need to make is where to go" Its not like the Maus was not worth playing beforehand.

  45. You just can't make this shit up. I just had a chat with somebody writing me that he just reported me for unsportsmanlike, because it is not very sporty to grind my T6 IKV TD. All my enemies are somewhat WW2 era but my tank is 1960 so I have an unfair advantage. Yep this just happend. And after I tried to explain him that I am not responsible for how WG is designing the tanktrees he just replied "you are obviously a retarded pedophile" ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
