    Strv K (T9 Swedish HT)

    The armor is the same for the cent turret and emil 2 hulls. the difference is the gun is De-rated from the Cent 7/1s L7A1 pen of 268 (with HESH as gold) to the STRV Ks 249 with APCR as gold cent 7/1: @Ezz here's a pretty good breakdown of it.

    Depends on what you want to learn, sounds like a douchy answer but it's kind of important as you pick up different things from different vehicles. Your experiences and subjective playstyle also mean you pick up different things than other people will from the same situations. Start off with if you want to get better at a gameplay element or just a specific tank. The first is much more useful as you can apply those to many more tanks but they don't come with experience as you often have to actively play towards your goal to learn from it rather than focusing on playing as well as possible which is something that very many have trouble letting go of (myself included). Autoloaders for example gives you a lot of practice playing as the center of attention, as you deal burst damage people focus you and that focus is exactly what you can take with you and apply to other tanks as well, having 1k autoloader games banked will end up mattering when you're playing as a top tier single shooter in a 357, again as the center of attention, especially with multiple arties. This should help connect the dots that you can learn something elsewhere than where you want to apply it. 357MM as top tier is much more rare and doesn't let you practice controlling the game very often, but you can spam autoloaders days on end and practice this specific thing for as long as you want, and then apply it to the tank you feel just gets too much focus for you to play well. OP tanks tend to get more focus, so this is what I did to bypass that problem and get better. You'll also pick up other things meanwhile practicing specifics, and don't pidgeon hole yourself into only that specific thing but remaining aware of the other positives you experienced during the practice of what you want to improve to speed up these processes. This is not the only things autoloaders are good for when it comes to practice, but it's one that is hard to practice anywhere else. As I previously mentioned you want a comfortable practice environment that generally means going down tiers to simplify gameplay to get good practice. Good practice doesn't mean easy games though, you don't learn from easy games. You want to be challenged but still be in control. That's a thin line to walk but where you're going to learn the most. You want as many of your games as possible to be fruitful for the future, which is different from playing for performance. Performance means no risk-taking, but learning generally means the opposite as you want to expand your options and as a result will end up being having to try new things and see what works. This is a lot of stupid dying and derpy games, but that is fine as long as you take something from them. Just remember to toggle this off once you feel comfortable with the topic you decided to practice though and go back to risk-averse gameplay with your newly refined skillset. The thing is you want to get a feel of what is actually a risk and what is not and you don't really get to that point without testing your limits. Risk-averse mean something entirely different for a 50% player and me. Playing passive in my eyes would still be considered aggressive to most players because they don't know that the decisions I'm making have sound reasoning behind them and thus less risky to make than meets the eye, they are totally safe because I ran the numbers before making it. So risk is percieved as subjective, and you want to make it as objective as possible meaning you want information and really nurture your ability to interpret the information. There are many "close calls" that were nothing of the kind, and there were also situations where I really fucked up but no one was aware enough to catch my mistake. When that happens I try my best to recognise them as mistakes still, it's hard but mistakes usually don't go unpunished in tier 10 so remembering it for next time has generally been a net positive over letting them go for the sake of my ego. Start off with figuring out one of your bigger issues in gameplay for a certain tank. Try to figure out a setting that makes you practice this, whether it's something simple to work on like dying less or more nuanced like getting better at reading enemy intentions etc is totally up to you. The important thing is to determine a gameplay aspect that could use improvement and simply doing something towards that goal as you play. If DPG or stats is of any concern then you want to limit test in a different tank than the one you want to improve, I couldn't care less about my service record so I generally just spam the tank I want to get better at directly. I rarely practice specifics like above anymore as I tend to focus on the specific tank for a pretty substantial period of time if my performance isn't what I want it to be yet instead. (M60 would be a good example, I was nowhere close to 3marking it at the start but after 500 games or so I had the highest average on the server by like 900 for the last 50 of them because I just stuck to it and really got the playstyle locked down on every single map, starting at sub 4k DPG for first 50 and 5,8k for the 50 at the end which is a HUGE difference considering it actually had very little to do with good/bad sessions). This is probably because I tend to pick these things up by sheer game quantity over quality practice. I don't really practice in that way anymore because when I do end up playing again I tend to have a specific goal in mind and only playing towards that. (Generally a T10 reward tank 3MoE or DPG challenge). I tend to stick to one tank until I am satisfied and that's what works for me right now with how often I play the game these days. Doesn't really matter what tank in the end, go through your replays if you're struggling to find what you're doing wrong and inspect them until you find a lapse in judgement, be more precise and nitpicky as you get further into this and you'll eventually find yourself becoming a better player.

    With all the discussion on this forum, from people across the world, even in China and Italy this seems appropriate given the rapid escalation in the past 24 hours. Italy in Lockdown NBA Cancelled Juventus Team in Quarantine Rudy Gobert Positive (In the dumbest way possible) Tom Hanks Positive UK Health Minister Positive Iranian Vice President Positive This is affecting several of us already on this forum, through education, work and social life and will rapidly get worse. Stay smart and play the IS-4 when you need a mental break. With the power of bushwankers I wish you all the best of health.

    It kills via respiratory failure associated with ARDS. Essentially the lungs get inflamed and fill up with fluid, which limits ability to breathe. And that's why ventilators are in short supply.

    i really can’t stress enough how valuable track shots are for farming, not just for you but your teammates as well - if the enemy can’t move they can’t get safe and cannot fight on their terms which is always what you want to be doing, even in autoloaders i spam trackshots despite risking not damaging a shot for either burning their repkit or keeping them in place in a position where they are farmable. that’s where you want to keep your enemies ideally, keep them in the sweet spot where you can fight them but they can’t push you you also seem to value staying alive over impacting the game a tad too much, this is not a habit i would remove though, all it needs is a slight adjustment (staying alive is still a super important aspect and should be valued very highly) so i would advise you to try more things out - as you’re returning from a long break the mechanics come back eventually but you want to get as deep into the meta-read ASAP meaning you’re going to have to try stuff and test limits on what works and what doesnt before you can start doing set plays and think ahead of pace (pro-active gameplay instead of reactive) and VERY many of those games are gonna look like shit and play like shit but they will be useful going forward which is what you want to be focusing on to improve i tend to spam games for 2-4 weeks before going on hiatus again for 2 months as that’s what my uni schedule lets me do (no time to game pmuch) and that is how i have played for the past 2 years (or just not play at all) and it’s the same for me every time: im rusty and need to work on my mechanics first> then i need to get my meta read up to speed and until i have like 200+ games under my belt since coming back i am actually a pretty mediocre superuni and my stats arent great until i get back to speed but i have done this process so many times now that i can be aware of this and get some monster games on experience alone to help my averages in the mean time but i am still in a learning mindset before tryharding (helps A LOT with staying sane too) this is the same for trying new tanks for me, my first 10 games are always great but set 20-50 really suck because i’m still limit testing and die a lot in stupid places because i am not able to estimate capabilities yet and stopped the ”new tank tryhard caution” thing (idk if this is a thing for other players but it definitely is for me lol) my gameplay starts to shine when i have put enough time into the game AND tank im playing which means i two major objectives to achieve before really being able to tryhard and stop the learning process and focus on damage gameplay at all times to stop the stupid dying and keep consistency up some players like Barry seem to be the other way around, plug n play and super fast at getting meta-reads even after long breaks but for me there is a substantial flat quantity of games i need to play before i can perform well enough to my own standards but every single one of those games have some purpose behind them so you can speed this process up to ~200 (for me, likely less for others) games rather than the 10k+ games it took to become a super-uni in the first place right obviously i don’t show my learning periods of gameplay as they’re not great which is also how i avoid getting revealed in Hall of Fame when boosting as I happen to downpad my stats a lot before the tryhard kicks in and 6k combined average sessions start to stack up the point being is that getting back up to speed takes proper testing of what works and what doesn’t before you can start playing the game for real and until you get comfortable you’re always going to play worse than normal so focus on that first, then start pushing your luck in game as often as you can (without being retarded - this is a finer line to walk than what it looks like) to get as much value out of every game as possible until you feel you have enough information available to play a map/tank combination out with a solid gameplan and able to problemsolve them when they don’t work. When you reach that point is when you start feeling real differences in gameplay, when I stagnate I just repeat this again until I hit my standards. It’s a tedious process but when performance is a requirement for fun it’s important not to cheat and rely on old experiences when you need to play catch up

    Strv K (T9 Swedish HT)

    I'm p sure Strv K is historical. There's an image somewhere floating online where the Kranvagn hull has a Centurion turret mounted because the Swedes bought a lot of Centurions from the Brits (Strv 81) EDIT: I was wrong about there being a photo but the plans did exist. http://ftr.wot-news.com/2014/07/15/swedish-tanks-part-xii-emil-1952-1958/

    OK boys, as you may or may not, I'm a doc. And I deal with a large, older, immunosuppressed patient populace. My first patient just showed up in the ICU in serious crap. The hospital leadership just showed us projections of what sort of bed capacity we will need if we follow Italy's trajectory, and it will basically suck up most of the beds and all of the ICU beds/vents for the entire state. As a result, elective surgeries are being canceled across the board, and hospital beds are being cleared to make way for the expected surge. THIS IS NOT A DRILL, and is far from the flu. We need to learn from what happened in Italy: 20% of the healthcare workforce got ill from taking care of COVID-19 patients, and it left people who didn't have direct ICU/pulmonary expertise (like me) to manage ventilators. We can muddle along, but it's like asking an arty main to play an EBR. Sure it's the same game, but kinda sorta. Furthermore, Northern Italy just ran out of beds and ICU/vents, which led to docs having to decide whom to let die. I don't know about you, but I'm not comfortable making that choice for anyone. I'll make it when it comes to it, because that is part of my training, but its not an easy choice. The US meanwhile, is about 12 days behind Italy, and our infection curve is exponential. We got 1000 new cases in the last 24 hrs. And that's just the ones who've tested positive. Stay safe folks, hunker down, flatten the curve. Shit's getting real.
