  1. first game in new buffed STB. holy shit they fixed pretty much all the problems I had with its rework. the increased side depression means you dont have to play front on only any more, and the buffed speed that the suspension stays active means you aren't constantly switching in and out of the suspension when rolling around on flanks and the annoying hiccup that happens when trying to aim down and activating the suspension is gone as well. 


    I cant believe WG did something right for once.

      Yeah they buffed the depression when out of siege mode from -6 to -8, and buffed the top speed that siege mode is active in from 20-30kph.

    3. Dirizon


      Still didn't buff the side armour,  or the driver compartment.

      If they gave 45mm to Type 61 so its no longer over-match by 122 caliber, the least they can do is provide it to STB1 too, which is a tier above and the successor. It makes sense. AMX TVP Leopard need this buff too, 45mm is not alot of armour to ask for, yet it is enough to stop alot of shit that otherwise ruins your day. Like how progetto has fifty mm in the front. 


    4. Assassin7


      I have never played the STB and thought it would bounce shots though. yeah sure a buff would be nice but it wouldn't really do anything because the front hull is paper anyway

  2.  Official forums:

    Someone: just use 100% gold because there's no downsides and it autopens everything"

    Me: No, gold isnt remotely autopen, heres proof with 3 of the oldest heavies in the game (E100 E5 IS7) that even unangled they arent remotely autopen with gold from almost every tank in the game.

    Him: "lol no you're wrong look all three of these tanks are autopen with gold in (Lists basically only weakspots of those tanks that dont even require gold to pen)


    I shouldnt bother, why do I do this to myself.

      T95 is not over powered.  T95 is lame.

      You get to do one thing, make one decision, then you are locked the rest of the match. Not all maps are ensk or Himmels, which are small or narrow that T95 works.  T95 was one of my hardest play through, because it required constant beginning of the game overview, call, commitment, and prem ammo. It needs prem ammo, because it cannot afford pen failure or misses. Sometimes all you get is to fire 3 times, you need all three guarantee, for that 2K damage

      Although they buffed T95 or Type 5 speed, they are still very slow. T28 is alright, but T95 is just snail slow.

      Yeh it is, doesn't mean its fun, but it makes most players overperform a lot and in the corridor meta it can push easily and drag pubbies along whilst making other pubbies freeze like rabbits in headlights.

      Had one yesterday push the 1 line on Prohk, the dude blocked 10k, if I hadn't had been there and killed it (I did like most of the damage to it) this bob would have won the game for his team. 

    4. Dirizon


      By most you mean.... standard player base 46-49% WR fodder. And then sure, it overperforms. Because as far as fodder goes, they use armour more effectively than  (positioning, speed, DPM, camo)  The weakspots are small, compared to something like Jag Pz, and generous spaced side armour. Fodder are also more likely not to spend increased costs on prem ammunition, so the TD high base pen AP works out for them more often. 

      But we are talking about caveats that boost a norm to performing slightly better, whereas if they were playing light tanks or soft meds which demand constant awareness, use of camo and speed, more prem ammunition, Etc they do poorly  (except EBR lol)  Bobject was a real case of over powered TD, because it featured the insane armour, small weakspots, and mobility on top of it all. 

      What you are basically talking about though, where a norm gets slightly heightened, is no different than them playing SPGs. These people over perform in SPGs too, because they aren't getting shot at and these types of players don't do well when getting shot at (T95 thick skin for getting shot at)  But do people call SPGs over powered? Broken, not op. Maybe LeFH. 

      It is not overpowered. It boasts boosts for bad players, who don't know anything, but with high pen base AP and passive armour that always works regardless if you are bad or not,  well it works. But put a highly skilled purple player in it, and they will have those games where they struggle to even do 2K. Because it lacks versatility and mobility. 

      In all honesty, I'd say TS-5 (or T28) are closer to overpowered than it. 



  3. I wish reddit would stop undoing my "opt out of redesign" option every week or so. fucking christ

    1. Spinee


      Add "old." to the Reddit URL and it'll switch back to the old design, any links opened here will default to the old Reddit. "https://old.reddit.com"

  4. A friend has been playing a lot of league lately. I said fuck it and downloaded it, despite never being remotely interested in it in my life before.

    Good news: I enjoyed it.

    Bad news: I enjoyed it oh god please help

      That's every server. Every elo. Diamond is not an exception - though diamond has far fewer toxic players as player at this elo realize shit happens. Plat/D4 is the most toxic based off of personal experience. 

      Can confirm, Plat 3 here laner in the shittiest server in the world, everyone thinks they are Faker stuck in this elo because of their teammates. Personally, I think Jgs are the most egotistic players particularly.


      Just now, Assassin7 said:

      im playing entirely lux, playing with aforementioned friend. I find I can fairly well 1v1 someone, but if someone else comes into the lane and jumps me im fucked and then I get further fucked.

      friend is giving me tips and hints. but Im finding its really not fun the sudden ganking and the idea of having to learn the attacks and stuff of every single other champion to avoid being ganked sounds daunting, a PITA, and not what I feel like doing. I've only got the time for one competitive game lol.

      1 Playing Lux to learn the game it's like playing arty :doge:, you are gonna have fun with Zed/Yasuo smurfs shitting on you because you don't know how to play the match up yet.

      2 If you wanna get competitive in LoL I would recommend you to not play ranked until you reach lvl 50 or so, believe me, there is a shitton of stuff to memorize about the game which is what I found annoying when I was learning, runes, builds, scalings, all the skills, passives, jg routes, cds, lane matches and a big etc. ARAM helped a lot since and it's quite fun just spamming abilities and autos here and there.


      3 Just play for fun, enjoy it while you can, it gets frustrating the most you learn about it and I'd say playing without chat it's the most healthy thing to enjoy the game. As has been said, most players below diamond have no idea what's going on, and you'll find a lot of kids playing too.

    3. Assassin7


      I very much do not wanna play competitively. I played it for memes because a friend was. Im getting bored of it now

    4. Fulcrous


      It's a ridiculiusly high skill-cap game and it's sure as hell better than WoT fucking you over with RNG even with the egoists.

      @mati_14 I feel like for junglers it's understandable. You get so much flame for not ganking a hard-losing lane that would result in inting if you ganked.

      I strongly recall a game getting flamed all game despite stealing 3 barons and every drake spawn despite the team's efforts to lose by basically inting fights and still getting blamed for the L. :serb:

      Having peaked P1 D3 MMR in season 5, there's little to no mechanical skill difference between mid-diamond and lower Elo. Only difference is knowledge.

      I agree with ARAM. It is legit one of the best ways to get better in every aspect of the game minus map and wave control.

  5. me: *plays ships*. 

    people: *report me...?*

    me: does top XP by a mile, carries hard and singlehandedly saves the game.

    compliments: 0.

      Your expectations betray you

    3. Assassin7


      seriously though, I got reported for reversing with double fires while being shot at by 3 smoked DDs lol, I've been reported like 3 times for dev striking people in my DD... 

  6. any 19pt shima captains? what skills should I be going for aside from the obvious concealment expert/torp reload etc?

    1. orzel286


      Play azur lane instead :v

  7. tfw you keep getting reported in ships because you're playing the yugumo with torp reload booster and keep dev striking people not expecting it

  8. new STB first impressions:

    Turret armour buff is absolutely brilliant. Its much more reliable now so peeking ridges is a lot safer. 

    DPM buff is great, I haven't actually really noticed the lack of alpha yet so im not too worried about that.

    gun handling, I haven't really noticed either. idk why, maybe because my crew and equipment were already so maxed out? (6 skills/full improved equipment)

    And... the suspension. Its a mixed bag. the extra over the front is nice. I don't like the delay for changing over to it, and the length of time it takes to actually depress the suspension. it makes quickly peeking ridges very difficult becuase you can't level the gun at the enemy until you've actually peeked up far enough, and you also cannot gauge the slope or how far you can actually depress until you've stopped and let it depress that far. it makes the whole tank feel more complicated to play.

    along with that, the -6 degrees over the side is absolutely ass and should never have gone live. it should be at least -8, and severely limits the angles you actually can peek and makes limiting your exposure much more difficult. 


    TLDR, mixed feelings. Ill have to get used to it, but it doesn't at least feel any *less* effective than before, but so far it doesn't actually feel much *more* effective either, aside from the buffed turret. 

    1. Oicraftian


      But now STB-1 has joined in the gun dep armor aids meta.

      Which really is unfortunate.

  9. So you have to install the shitty ass WG game center to play the test server.


    Fine, fucking did it. Except it then decided to fucking hook itself into my normal tanks and ships installs so now they wont launch without that fucking pile of cancer. Uninstalling it and trying to delete the hook files didnt work. So now im doing a fucking system restore to fix it.


    Fuck this shitty ass game center, fuck WG why cant we just leave all this shit alone?

      They did it because it's way more confusing to rage uninstall than the old client.

    3. NightmareMk9


      I copied the link to the exe file in the WOT folder.  It allows me to load Tanks without the Game Center

    4. Draco912


      well that is what i have to look forward too. my tenks goes unresponsive loading into the log in screen so i need to reinstall but im probably S.o.L for getting the stand alone client install at this point.

  10. @Folterknecht what sort of constraints are there on mixing different RAM modules? I'm thinking of expanding it in the two free slots I have, but apparently they don't stock the ones Im using anywhere in NZ any more (https://nz.pcpartpicker.com/product/FH2rxr/crucial-memory-bls2k8g4d240fsc)

    what should I be looking for to compliment these?

      It looks like your ownly white memory option is Corsair Vengance according to Pc Part Picker NZ.  You could try 2 of them at the 2666 MHz speed and run them using the Crucial Ballistiix Sport XMP profile or buy the Corsair Vengance for and sell your current memory.

    3. Assassin7


      Im not too fussed if they're not white as long as they're compatible. performance over looks as you do.

    4. Bavor


      If you wanted to add another 16 GB, then you can get the Crucial Ballistix Sport LT in 2666 MHz speed in grey.  It should run fine at the lower speed of your current 2400 MHz memory and its timings. https://nz.pcpartpicker.com/product/Kf648d/crucial-ballistix-sport-lt-16gb-2-x-8gb-ddr4-2666-memory-bls2k8g4d26bfsbk

      It looks like you can still get the 2x8 GB DDR4-2400 Ballistix Sport LT in the US for $85 USD.  I'm not sure if it would be worth the cost of someone shipping it to you so you can guarantee compatibility if that's what you are concerned about.

  11. @Haswell the fuck even was that bot

      just imagine how spa and bathurst are on iracing in anything big like the lmp or daytona prototype with people who drive like its fast and furious tokyo drift. thats why i stay with my fezza 488 gt3 and oval racing mostly i would die every race in anything more powerful lol

    3. Assassin7


      bathurst sucks for LMP, but spa is great for everything

    4. HowitzerBlitzer


      Paul Ricard is better for GT cars rather than F1
      Monza is simple enough to where it's good for almost everything, same case with Montreal.

  13. has anyone else been not able to access their vehicle tab in the service record for like 2 patches? and is there a fix?

    1. Wanderjar


      first ive heard of that one. 

    2. Rexxie


      I couldn't for a long while either. I have to imagine you should be able to clear your dossier cache to fix it, but I'm only guessing & too lazy to check myself.

  14. these fucking spambots man

    1. Haswell


      Where else can I find sunglasses and cars and meds and printers for cheap? :doge:

    2. Assassin7


      also all these "news" (?) articles about random sports teams doing whatever I dont even know whats the point

    3. NightmareMk9


      I got a call last night from a nice guy that wants to buy my house for cash...

  15. okay that spambot is gone. welp

  16. lol WoT classic server is unplayable. It says 300 ping, but it feels like 800+. pressing a button takes a full second before something happens, htting anything that hasn't been stationary for than 3 seconds is 100% impossible. even if its at close range, and completely side on. light tanks? yeah don't even bother. 


    basically every NA and EU player I've been in a game with so far has said the same thing. but the few RU players I got english replies out of all said its fine on their end.

      Switching to minimum graphics helped the input lag a lot surprisingly

    4. hall0


      tried it now. As yuro fag I do have the same problem. It shows a 20-30 ping. But that can't be right. It feels more like 2000-3000.

      I kid you not. My tanks floats around and the walls getting crushed 10m in front of the actual tank. And no surprise, I can't hit the broadside of a barn.

      I wish arty would become exactly this as well.

    4. Assassin7


      I didnt even mind CVs in ships as much as arty because there were much more defenses against it such as AA and the fact you could see the planes coming. Yeah they were still pretty game breaking when a good player had one, especially if your CV was a terribad. But this new mechanic is completely worthless. A torp run drops two fucking torps. How can you get a good spread on a BB with two damn torps? And to drop the rest you have to go in for multiple runs which just lets their AA eat you for longer. 


      And you cant engage the enemy CV either or something from the one game I played? Even if they were more useful its not even fun. Its more boring than playing arty.

  18. FYI, Major terrorist attack on two Mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand. Australian born gunman killed 49 and injured 50+, mostly muslims. This was the worst massacre in NZ since 1943. He livestreamed the shooting to facebook. Two car bombs were also found and disarmed.

    4 arrests made.  Main gunman survived and was arrested. 

    Incase people were worried, @PityFool and his family are safe, since he lives in christchurch.

      There are a lot of people on reddit and other places making comments and stuff im the wake of things, that aren't from NZ and dont understand the culture and our values and stuff here, and saying a whole range of ignorant or even degrading things about how its being handled, especially lately the new gun laws they are already bringing in.

      Remember NZ isnt america, and americans saying their thoughts that are backed by the US culture arent always very accurate to how we in NZ think.

      pre nerf E5 would be considered UP in current meta ;_;

    3. monjardin


      I spawned next to an E5 in my Chieftain today and immediately felt really sorry for him. That was my first tier 10, but I think I may have played it once in the past year.


      Although, I did bounce a ton of damage in it by hiding the tumor. I could HEAT through the opposing Super Conq's turret face, but he was having a harder time of it.


      Also, I'm really glad I didn't listen to most of the advice that I was getting (other than Deus) and picked the Chieftain over the 9-0-Kevin. I love it!

  21. quick fyi for any people who still actually play runescape, I just got what Im 99% sure is a phishing email saying my account  has received an infraction due to a Major Real World Trading offense.

    I suggest not trying to login through the link it supplied, It just led me to a blank white page. 

    1. Wanderjar


      Sounds like some of your info was in that Giant info dump in Jan. make sure you rotate all your passwords

    2. Assassin7


      Maybe, I fell for the login, realised it was a phishing scam and immediately changed my password and then added the authenticator. I barely ever play RS anymore but id still rather my account wasnt hacked

  22. lol the wheeled vehicles get vanilla autoaim+ as standard.

    WG adding a banned mod to the vanilla game 10/10

    1. Medjed


      What does autoaim+ do different than the standard one

    2. 8_Hussars


      Not running common test but I assumed the wheeled tanks were getting the scaled back Autoaim+ where you just had to have the cross hairs "close enough" to the target (not highlighted); but had none of the lock on targets behind cover (LOS still required) or the auto lock to closest tank BS...


    3. flare_phoenix


      @Medjedyou don't have to have reticle on enemy tank to autoaim them, it can be in their vicinity/in their general direction

  25. So despite the fact the 907 is objectively better than the 140, and despite the fact that callers downright refuse to take a 140 over a 907 in CW, meaning that despite the fact I play the 907 most often and put improved equipment on it, I still much prefer the 140 to the 907.

      Kolni what about the 430U. Can't that sidescrape perfectly? Or is it because you don't consider it a medium?

    3. Fulcrous


      Let's not forget 140 has the easily pennable sides (even when sidescraping). There's a guaranteed penetration zone.

    4. Kolni


      430u is pretty moot, it does different things than the 907/140 anyway - farms more easily but less effectively

      i haven't checked 430u angles in tanks.gg but from experience with high pen APCR there is no way he can actually sidescrape and fire at you without giving pennable shots back, but it might be a thin line of a perfect angle idk
