  1. 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

      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

       

  2. I seem to have somehow completely forgotten how to play the TVP.

    like 8 games in it yesterday and I only managed to break 2k damage once. I have no idea what is wrong with me

  3. lol, met whistling_death in a pub match. I.E the guy who does the exposingwot website.

      @Assassin7 I don't agree. They just seem worse for good players because they hurt our farming. Type5 is more cencerous though because it allows bad players to roll over your mediocre players in key positions of the map. 

    3. Assassin7

      even if you don't agree, its still my opinion /shrug.

      @Assassin7 I'm not trying to take that from you. I just never found the wedges as annoying as some people claim and as someone who played them for some dweebs too lazy to grind their own lines, marks, aces etc (never marked the t10 since I'm not that patient/good) I found that the camo while shooting is a myth. When shooting without double bush they are as easy to spot as other tanks. The idea to hurt them in other ways but make them faster in siege mode like someone suggested would make them more broken since they would be able to abuse double bushing even better.

  7. TIL that WoWS now has XVM.

      IIRC the in-game XVM mod uses scripts.zip. Aka the 'modify this and you get banned cause the file is on a watch list' file, unless they changed it recently.

      There's still plenty of alt-tab programs that look up team stats though.

  8. WG have managed to make pilsen worse as well.... its mostly the same for heavies but for mediums is so, so much worse. the field is absolutely terrible.

  9. WG seems to have done something and now my ping is sub 200 :D
    it was 230-250 depending on time for central. being back at 180 is great

  10. New "feature" of being a mod: I get these nice big banners on top of the forum that say "THERES A FORUM SOFTWARE UPDATE CLICK HERE TO UPDATE NOW" with a big button I have almost accidentally tapped on my phone twice now which according to Never would lead to many things breaking completely.

  12. why the hell did they have to change earlenberg from the cool unique map it was to just another stupid boring corridor brawl map. ugh its so boring now. 

    1. sohojacques

      sohojacques

      Assault on the old map was was possibly my favourite map in the game. The new map highlights everything that’s  wrong with WGs current take on the game. 

    2. king_spaniel

      king_spaniel

      Because this is the new formula for every new "successful rework" according to WG: 70% of the map is open field kill zone, 10% = the most predictable positions for your low IQ teammates to camp in for the entire match.  The remaining 20% of the map is actually contestable and where any competent player is forced to go.  But because it is such a small strip of the map, it too becomes entirely predictable where you will be forced to end up.

      There can be no room for creativity, flanking, (think multiple viable options or pathways).  Everything must be forced into a straight line corridor for the droolers to be able to play in their <insert random tank(not light tanks though, we're talking about actual classes that can have an impact on the game)> to do 2 shots of dmg and then throw themselves away uselessly

  13. Okay, the official forum has finally broken me.

    I have people telling me the Churchill 7 is doing fine and doesnt need a buff, and someone else trying to tell me that the IS-7 has better gun handling than the E5.

      @Assassin7 that is why I said it's better for snaps only. I don't think it's a simple cut comparison. When you start aiming the e5 probably overtakes is7 I just find that people follow the myth of derpy is7 gun back before buffs. Also e5 gun feels better because more pen and better shell speed.

      no, day. Ranked for me starts at 12pm and goes till 5pm. I got to rank 11 at like 3.30pm.

  15. the more I play ranked the more obvious how unbalanced tier 10 is becomes.

      The problem I have is with the Type 5's. I've been having matches with one team having like four or five of these things, usually driven by some shitters and that team always wins because they simply HE everything to death. Hull down Super Conqs or 430U make no difference. They just suffer from HE spam all the same.

    3. Assassin7

      Assassin7

      I dont even have a problem with type 5s at the moment. Just heat through the turret face and try not to get hit. Shit doesnt work with super conqs and 430Us...

       

      Hell, the 268v4 isnt even a problem, not many people are playing it.

    4. mati_14

      mati_14

      That thing of who has more S. Conquer wins, it's not completely true in my experience, got 15 last friday full IS-7, and the only issue with S. Conquer is the speed, some maps like Malinovka, Redshire, Arctic Region and Live Oaks are dominated by the tanks that can take the brawl area first because of the positional advantage, and here is where 430U shines, along with 5A and 277. Still agree that SC concept is completely wrong. Why would we need an armored 215B?. In any case, I feel like all tier 10 2016/2018 should be nerfed a bit, reduce 907/430U/SC/5A/277/STRV DPM, nerf 268V4 armor even more, put IS-7 at 2200 HP, etc. It's funny to me how tanks  like 113/260/E5/STB are now utter trash because of this retarded powercreep.

  16. So, last ranked season (and the season before that, funnily enough) I was having major issues with packet loss, like, unplayable levels of packetloss. Then, when the ranked season ended, so did the packet loss issues, like, almost to the day. These issues never happened again...

    Until today, when I started playing this ranked season. And now im getting packet loss again.

    Tinfoil hat time?

      Hey man, I totally wasnt expecting a random massachusetts to appear in my port one day. I didnt even know that that contest was a thing that existed until I went looking to figure out why I was given the ship lol. 

  17. I log in to ships, find a random massachusetts in my port. be like "wtf" go to forums, apparently I won it in the Damage Dealer event that I didn't know even existed. ha.

  18. Pro ships players, tldr of how2play Yamato in current meta? 

  19. So, researched and bought the caernavon. Only 2 games but Its actually pretty good. 280 alpha with a 5.4 second reload, decent mobility, decent armour, decent gun handling. This thing got mega loved.

      T32 is bad because of its gun even 250 apcr pen is terrible for that anemic alpha and the dpm is shit tier.

    3. hazzgar

      hazzgar

      Lefhs are cancer to low tier heavies but having finally gotten my hands on an account that has one - it's meh. Unless the target is slow and imobbile the shell flies to long to hit anything that moves above 15kph.

  23. aside from windows deciding its now going to randomly take up an extra 20-30gb of space on any given day or even hour. It just installed, by itself, with no prompting, the English UK language to my computer. and won't let me uninstall it. 

    Im thinking its soon time for a reinstall. this is rediculous. EVERY windows update feature, service, registry key, etc is disabled. and its still doing this shit

      Unless the T-34-3 gets 225mm pen, 270mm HEAT, 0.36 acc and 2.5s aim time, with similar or better mobility, the chances of me returning to WoT are about as likely as WG balancing this Pref MM tank change well.

      for you people from europe: might there be a legal way to get my money back instead of gold? i brought premm MM tanks for a reason. WG always shied away of changing the prem tanks because of that but now they can?
