  2. Mission complete! Reward: Vehicles added: Object 279 early (crew 100%) Slots added: 1 The german mission took me way to many tries, and the russian one was even more annoying, buuuuut, i made it, no idea how much i will play this, but i finished this crap. If i had done all the previous stuff (so i would start with 8 tokens), it would have taken me 2 months / 1k games i think, now a bit longer

  3. This is the last, last extensive guide I'm making. For real this time, I have some other threads in mind for content but not in this manner.. This isn't just for the players the title fits, but it's going to be focusing on these players and why they aren't improving and how to start doing so. For the sake of numbers, I will be using tier 10 for this, but everything applies to the game as a whole. Intro: Great, you're decent at the game. This is where things ramp up a lot in difficulty and where almost all of these players stagnate. Performance in this game

  4. Hi guys, I'm an ex clan member of 322 from the EU server, returning after 8 years of absence. I was playing WoT in the ESL back then (that doesnt exist any more) and did FC in company battles a lot of times. I played a lot back in my college time but stopped after I got a gf and job. I didn't touch the game until last year when lockdown basically forced me to find some productive things to do at home. My old account is still existing (https://wotlabs.net/eu/player/givethemnothing), but after 8 years I forgot the credentials to the connected mail address... welp. Nothing of value

  7. Damn @kolni, you're still pumping out great content for the community, and I for one really appreciate it. I think we all take for granted all the great stuff written years ago and how much there is (or was, at the time), and the level of effort that goes in to pulling something like this together. I hope it isn't your last serious content piece (there's still a lot you've got to offer, on more individual subjects like tank reviews, maps etc.), but if this is it a good way to go out. Looking forward to parsing through fully after work.

  8. I just unlocked the T-54ltwt recently and saw this post and thought I'd give it a shot, even though I'm obviously not a particularly good stealth light-tank driver, plus a cheapskate who doesn't use food and doesn't have the best crews etc. but wow, so far this build works pretty damned great even for a scrub like me. I'm running Optics in the specialist slot (cause bad crew and no food), CVS and LNES as per the suggestion. Just below 40% camo (39.something) with 465m view range with this setup, as above, no food and situation awareness is not maxed out (only about 68% so there is a bit more v

  9. Is it obvious I'm tryharding missions? On the plus side, finished Bloc-15 (without honours - despite getting 1st class every 3rd game or so in the HWK 12, apparently I'm bad at farming Aces with it), and i've unlocked Coalition-15, so all that's left is 3 1sts in some fun tanks to play (Skoda T 50, Progetto 46, Bourrqaue) and I will have the Ebola at last.

  10. I bought this yesterday and played it a whole bunch. I am absolutely doing it wrong - and it's fun. How wrong? LNE, optics, vents. 46% camo sitting and 36% moving. That puts it in the middle of the tier X LTs for camo values and let's me do stupid vision plays with 440 alpha and some armor to get me out of sticky situations. It becomes a hybrid of TD, LT and MT in this mode. I've def struggled to learn where i can safely be at 50 kph and how to use the siege depression mechanic - so some real misplays and suicides. That said 2500 dpg and 1900 spotting is pretty influential in the matches.

  13. I did the 279 missions last summer, so fairly close to the current meta. I did Coalition and Alliance as has been recommended here. Best skill tanks, best tanks for my skills. @sr360def helped me pick the tanks during the process. I cannot recall all of what I used, but I'll give my best guesses for some, and specifics when I do remember. Coalition 1: Any autoloader. Pick your highest kills/game and use that one. I have a couple that average over 2. I probably did this while grinding credits in the Prog46 or similar. Coalition 2: AMX 50B was my choice here. BatChat25t is good

  15. Nearly 4 years without reply. I cannot help but feel partially responsible. Recently I was recruited to play this game again by @sr360 . He was my commander. We've been experimenting with high camo LT builds for the anti-EBR meta. LNE is a pretty good piece of equipment, especially if you can deal with crappy gun bloom! I'll hopefully have some replay content soon, as we're working on a method of recording video with voice-over, working around my shitty hardware!

  19. As of now, every viable tier 10 tank either has some sort of gimmick to leverage or just an overtuned kit in general. The gimmicky ones usually have flaws to play around when facing them, but the ones with overtuned kits tend to simply roll you over as a lower tier, and you rarely get to pressure an advantage in full tier 10 games as the terms seems are generally unbalanced and hard to estimate. Hull down snipefights is one of the most common aspects of the game and it is absolutely terrible gameplay, just an example but you get the point. Some examples of the first would be:

  21. Prok bush line is a special case as Overlord Prime showed in his deep dive. The issue with Prok bush line progression is that you need a combination of higher view range and higher camo than the opposing light tank to make that progression work. OP demonstrated that a base camo value of 19.5% would negate opposing CVS users -- an EVEN90 with a base value of 22.12% easily outstrips that. So an EVEN sitting in the bushline can only be proxy spotted. Optics+CVS would probably let you spot the enemy 432 or T92 before you spot him, but that's a specific situation. In my experience, the EVEN90

    Do we really want them to be in the mode where every new premium is more OP than the last? I'm pretty fine with what they've been doing with prems lately, as they've been fairly balanced and unique. Frankly, most of them have still been better than most of the tech tree tanks.

  25. Did it in the bulldog. After crying 2/3 games were aces. I just had bad teams. Bulldog is the way to go. 4k combined with 3 kills = ace. Now Chimera Union 15 with honors either in the 705 or I grind till I can get the 705a and do it in that.

  28. So yesterday WG released two articels regarding the Arty and HE change. https://worldoftanks.eu/en/news/general-news/sandbox-he-shells-spg-rebalancing-results/ https://worldoftanks.eu/en/news/general-news/he-spg-supertest-may-2021/ And as expected these changes are coming to the the game. Starting with the Common Test for Update 1.13 (soon) But before there seem to be another Supertest where they nerf/buff certain tanks like Type or EBR. I still dislike the change. So much time and effort wasted in such a little problem. Changing a whole game mechanic, while simila

  30. I think that there is a difference between "auto-pilot" and being "in the zone". You are more referencing being in the zone, where you have optimal situational awareness, focus and reaction without having to think through everything in detail. It's unfortunately not a state that most of us can be in most of the time. Auto-pilot on the other hand is where you go to a spot because that is the spot that you always go, and you aren't focused or paying good attention to what is happening, and you are just going through the matches. That is an easy and common state to be in, one that most playe

  31. Hi, there from an other Ex 322, OM, PTS - never was in FAME - player. My main was sold and my 2nd account with 2-3 t10s is used for playing ships from time to time. Though that game will probably reach shit show status even faster than WoT. Bring back a modified 2012 client and I ll come back and play, as I did for a week or two like a few years ago, but the nonsense of endless goldrounds, no weakspots, fantasy tanks and nearly fully stabilized firing in historic tanks (the accuracy is at least at that level when moving) is keeping me away without a desire to return playing.

  32. I think you're both missing the point of a clan like FAME (or other top "competitive" clans). They exist to give players an end game and goal to work towards and to be able to actually have some kind of competitive goal, as randoms is not a motivation for them. I watch a few FAME streamers - a lot of them have pretty much marked every tier 10 (Chief, 279, Carro included), often to 100% MoE - what's the point of playing randoms after that? Sure, you can push DPG, but that's small gains and the 100% MoE kind of acts as a proxy for that anyway. Even streaming / making money that way (which a lot

  33. Another good idea, just play a shitter tier 8 to get 3 ace tanks. I decided to buy back TVP TVU, put food, bounty stab, that reload perk thing and my skoda T50 crew on it (5.3 sec rld with 240 dmg, nice). First streak of 20 games, 2 ace tanker (and like 5 1e class...) second try i only needed 9 games to get 3 ace tanks (and got like 4 1e class also) i got good mm / teams, but i went rly smooth 1639 exp was my lowest ace, and thats with prem, so just over 1k base exp = ACE... All i now need is finish excalibur 15 with honors, to get my last needed token, and that is just a grind

  36. If you have a decent camo crew, that helps. Rammer, IRM, Optics (as you can't use vents or vstab). Use the camo directive as well - if you're like me, you have 100s you've never used. It has good camo values already, but the crew + camo directive + chocolate means you have basically light tank camo, and tier 9 does allow some vision abuse when top tier / end game. Generally play it like a leo or other bitch sniping meds. Because your gun is 1) sooooo accurate, 2) has insane APCR pen and 3) great velocity, you can basically snipe / brute force your way through heavies front on, from the se

  37. I'd honestly recommend the Wt auf Pz IV. I have 7 Top Guns in it and I think all 7 are since I played it for missions. I was averaging 2.22 kills in it, and the 560 alpha let's you finish off a lot of fairly high HP tanks that a 390 gun wouldn't, and it reloads about as fast as most 390 guns, which always surprises people. Outside of that, low alpha (e.g. Kpz) doesn't work great, so I'd go either of the Leos (Pta worse tier for tier since nerf, but better MM, and both have 420 alpha) or the E 50. E 100 would be too slow / inconsistent. For the main thread, i'll update the OP tonight.

  38. EDIT: Before my comments - GET A NEW TANK for those extra 5 battles of good MM. Good MM for t7 = fighting t6 and t5 tanks = easy top guns. Depends on how scummy do you feel? If a lot then Chi-ri and kill steal. I know not german but Japanese and German are both Block. If less scummy than Tiger I. Tiger I is a top gun machine.

  39. I agreed fully with everything you said.. but I honestly think the maps are worse than before. Almost all the re-worked maps are significantly worse than their previous versions. Fishermans bay is my favourite example, the old version was one of my favorite maps, now its a complete shitshow of one-sided bushes and no arty cover. I returned to the game christmas 2019, not expecting to play much, I had quit the game completely since 2015. But I've played about 6k battles since returning, my honest opinion is that in an overall comparison, the game is better today than it was back in the gl

  40. I am grinding my way up the trees slowly because I three mark every tank I own, so haven't yet really started with Tier X - also since the gameplay in TX especially is really boring as compared to T8. The thing is that Tier X always was a campfest but nowadays due to the omnipresence of EBR, gold ammo and yet more autoloaders, the burst potential is so absurd that everyone is just waiting for the other one to make one mistake. Another thing ofc is the question, why play TX? I am going to eventually play them to three mark all, but they aren't really much more fun than T8 or 9 and you definitel

  41. This annoys me how this has been something people have said since pretty much I started playing early 2013. I guess it's kind of come true on NA, but on EU there's still plenty of people playing, including new players (bots at lower tiers scares me though). How have you adapted to playing tier 10 again? Do you like that the main yardstick to measure success has moved from W/R to DPG / marks? I remember back in 2013 to say 2016 or so that the DPGs people pull nowawdays were just pipe dreams, and anyone chasing DPG / WN8 / stats generally were frowned upon (especially here) as peo

  42. I'll be more detailed later, but here's my bottom line on scouting missions-- There are two types of scouting missions: those which need BIG NUMBERS (e.g. Bloc-9, get a total of 15,000 assist damage in 10 battles) and which need a certain number of tanks to be spotted/assisted etc (e.g. Alliance-3, enable your allies do kill an average of 2 tanks per game that you have spotted). The problem is that the tier 10 LT meta is essentially dominated by the EBR. The Manticore and T-100 can have good games, but can you consistently get 10 games where you get good maps yet EBRs don't run aroun

Ppl are asking for fixes in MatchMaker, premium ammo, SPGs, wheeled vehicles, map design, clan wars, marathons, reward tanks, premium tanks... You know: the real issues. If WG didn't start this HE topic, nobody would be talking about it. It's irrelevant in the grand scheme.

  47. The whole colour scale has gradually become more pleb-friendly so the shitters don't get too butthurt. I still remember how "noob" and "bot" or something were changed to "basic" and "beginner" because MUH FEELZ. All the brackets from red to green are basically just another shade of useless, and especially in battles the distinction is totally pointless. XVM is what most people use WoT stats for, so if you want that to be a useful tool you have to make a custom config that covers all the different shades of useless under one label and colour: meatshields.
