  1. 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

  2. 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.

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

      Which really is unfortunate.

  3. 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.

  4. @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.

  5. @Haswell the fuck even was that bot

    1. Haswell


      Something with rudimentary pattern recognition, though why the fuck did it dig up 2yo threads?

  6. Race tracks designed for F1 cars are all complete garbage for all other types of car. Change my mind.

      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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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...

  9. okay that spambot is gone. welp

  10. 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.

      alt+f4 midgame fixed it. (you won't have to queue again if you do it)

    3. TheChang


      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. 

  11. holy crap CVs are absolutely worthless now

      In ships, they're pathetic. Completely a non threat any more. 

      And they're not even fun to play now either.

      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.

  12. 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.

      @Assassin7 radicalized over the internet the same way Breivik was.This is why super fun "free speech warrior safe spaces" are often dangerous and radicalize young guys no less than religious nuts. It's part of the toxic internet culture that also gave us incel terrorists. 

    3. Wanderjar


      And the wretched hive of scum and villany known as 4chan and Reeeeeeeddit

    4. Assassin7


      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!


    4. MacusFlash


      Yet another tier XI tank in wot.

  15. 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

  16. 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

  17. So anyone who actually for some reason bought the ISU-130, does the bought one have the little M badges on the side of it like the contributer gift one? or is it the standard soviet star?

      it's been confirmed to be the M badge

      Fucking dammit.

      You're not speshul. ^_^

  18. went to install WoT on my laptop.

    it immediately starts installing the WG game center.... not only that, its immediately installed it without even asking me where I want to install it to. nice WG, thanks. totally didn't want it on my C drive but whatever.

      I cancelled the install, and then it let me pick where to install it.

    3. Assassin7


      Well whatever happened, it took me like 5 hours to install the damn game. (Only about an hour of which was actually downloading) and the game center is gone, and WoT runs fine.

  19. 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.

    2. nabucodonsor


      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


  20. 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

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

      any good threads? :^)

  24. fuck the swede TDs. they'd literally be the first line I removed if I was in charge. before the Type 5 before the 268v4. before fucking arty.

    1. Show previous comments  13 more
    2. hazzgar


      @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. 

    4. hazzgar


      @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.

      I've never even figured out how to read my service record in WoWS, much less install XVM.

    4. Mnemon


      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.
