  1. So is there a way to turn off all these absurdly stupid beeps and dings that they've added with this patch to literally every single action?

      I don't hear that at all.

    3. Assassin7


      lucky, Ima need whatever mod that is then lol

    4. Kuratovsky


      I feel you, it's just stupid. A partial solution is now included in Aslain's for destroyed enemies. Regarding other dings, if you use xvm, you might be able to disable them in sounds.xc. Otherwise look at gui/[sounds_notifications|gui_sounds].xml and similar with an xvm decoder if you're into modding. I wrote something about it on reddit. You just have to find the right wwsound keys in the right files and blank them.

  2. because apparently embeds don't work, this video explains the HE changes

      70 % of statistics are made up by wargaming

  3. Cmdr_AF seems to have literally every player on the NA server in that team.

  4. cheif/Super Conq/E5/IS-7, which is probably best for doing HT-15 in todays meta for 260? because those are the ones I own lol.

    (also 113/5A/T-10/50B but those ones wont have any hope with it)

      Wow sick game. Congrats again. I will also give it another go today.

    4. LetsMakeTheMagic


      Wow a friend played my M53 for the first time last weekend.

      He completed SPG 15 with honors on the second try on Cliff. He wasn't even tryharding.

      I feel dirty in more than one way.

  5. Before I buy this thing, if anyone who knows this sort of stuff could tell me, will this sound card be capable of boosting my windows sound volume? I.e make it louder? https://playtech.co.nz/collections/sound-cards/products/creative-soundblaster-audigyfx-soundcard

    Over the last few months my general audio volume has been slowly getting quieter, idk why. But im hoping a new dedicated sound card will fix it. 

    1. simba90


      A dedicated sound card is completely separate from your onboard sound. Its a separate device with its own volume control. I had a motherboard that the onboard sound died on a few years ago and I fixed it with a dedicated sound card. YMMV depending on the actual issue but I'd be pretty surprised if that card didn't fix the issue.

  6. is there a difference between PCI and PCI express?

      Maybe I'm wrong. From Wikipedia


      PCI and PCI-X have become obsolete for most purposes; however in 2020 they are still common on modern desktops for the purposes of backward compatibility and the low relative cost to produce.


    3. Haswell


      Check your mobo to see what slot you want to use, then get a wifi card for that.

      Alternatively adapters exist.

    4. Folterknecht


      In regards to WiFi cards your read it right, there are PCI and PCIe cards. Though PCI is outdated and has very narrow bandwith compared to modern PCIe standards.


      On motherboards you usually don't find PCI anymore in midrange/highend boards besides some special or custom made ones. Though guys who tinker around like to have a board like that, so they don't have to mess around with silly adapters.

  7. damn, I forgot how good the FCM 50t is. Its so nice

      I can deal with the platform, I can deal with the alpha damage, I love the mobility and gun depression, but oh my god last time I played it I couldn't hit a barn door if it was 5 meters away.

    3. Assassin7


      It does have that classic french RNG sometimes, yeah. Though it was fine when I played it last night. Course im also fairly used to guns that like going into the dirt, thanks to the STB. 

      Its weird, it was my primary credit earner before I got the Type 59, but since getting the 59 Ive been playing that almost exclusively as a pref 8. However in the last year or two I think Ive barely ever seen anyone else in an FCM in any of the tier 8 games Ive played. Its rarely played anymore.

    4. Tarski


      Whenever I get in the FCM I regress to full tomato for some reason. I have an unreasonably hard time not failing miserably with it. 

  8. fucking lol, I just got TK'd by an IS-7 that drove out of his way back to base to kill me after I turned blue saving a friendly light tank, but stunning him in the process.


    Good fucking meme

      Im just tryna do fucking arty missions and its absolutely cancer leave me alone ;_;

    3. yoyoya2


      Honestly I'd probably do that if I saw a arty turn blue, I miss being able to TK them whenever I was pissed

    4. echo9835


      Dead arty is dead arty. Team doesn't matter.

  9. been playing nothing but M53/M55 this week doing arty missions for 260, I just need SPG-15 for T55A and then MT15 for 260 and Ive got it.

    its so cancer. relying on pubbies to shoot the stuff you stun is ridiculous.

      I have been, with a friend in an EBR

  10. Rxm7igP.jpg

    (Image) playing M53 for 260 missions (bleh) this dude sat on red line behind cap in ISU-152K all game (our team abandoned 1 line completely) then ranted at team all game after driving over the rails after the game was already over and dying. 

    he was complaining about having no shots and I think the only thing I said to him all game was "you had plenty of shots" after he said it

      I was polite and everything as well despite his rage D:

    3. Hellsfog


      was it that Wesley guy? Sounds like his thing. 

    4. Assassin7


      Nope just some random 48%er mad because he didnt know what he was doing while thinking he did

  11. lost a 1v6 kolobanovs in T67 due to time limit because last 2 tanks ran to back of map and hid, found one and died to it trying to yolo because 20 secs left, sent PM to second politely asking where he was because I was curious if my guess was correct. his response: "Fuck you kid"


    ... okay then

    1. BadLuckCharm


      You, uh.... have enough faith in online gaming environments to hope for a different answer? Somehow, there's something good in that, positive thinking type of stuff.

      But yeah, pretty well what i'd expect.

    2. hazzgar


      Wot ironically really expemplifies why the world is shit. People do a ton of shit not to benefit themselves but to make life worse for other people. There is no sense that we're in this shit together and creating toxic behavior bounces back. It's not only online gaming. People vote out of spite and run their businesses with the same logic and this is probably one of the 3 things i literally hate and make me instantly cross someone out and never want to spend time with them.

      jeez fine guys ruin my fun then

    3. sr360


      I mean, I'll play it for hoots and giggles, but compare it to the Type 64 and ... oof.

    4. SkittlesOfSteeI


      They murdered my boy. Since when did they make light tanks only capable of shooting a 76mm every 4ish seconds

  13. PRIMEGAMING2020 gives 500g and some boosters and stuff

      Kay, thanks fam.

      Nice, thanks m8

  14. any recommendations on a good gaming chair? seat needs to be able to tilt and lock, since im sick of having to brace my ass from sliding out of the seat because my current one is angled forwards. 

    also preferred budget of under $500NZD..

    2. Assassin7


      tbh the secretlab chairs actually look really good, and I can do the whole pay in installmants thing so it might not be as bad a financial hit like that. Hmmmm

    3. DrJ_Zoidberg


      Do yourself a favor and drop the gaming attribute from your chair search, you're looking for a task chair. I would recommend checking craigslist/local used markets for an herman miller Aeron, or if you're lucky an Embody. Both can be had for under $500 and are fantastic places to park your butt for long periods of time without ruining your back.

    4. Assassin7


      oh I've already dropped gaming and looked for regular chairs. they all seem to be similarly priced, or simply dont exist from all the retailers I frequent here in NZ. 

  15. I just played clan wars for the first time in like... 1.5 years. 

    why the fuck are all the provinces only 20-70g/day? wtf

    1. SchnitzelTruck


      Remember the skirmishes from years ago where you'd play a few 5v5s and get 10k gold?

  16. anyone know of a good set of headphones for gaming? dont need a mic, just want good quality and good comfort for long periods of wearing them.

    I'll be going from Logitech G430s so yeah. 

    oh also Much, Much, MUCH prefer 3.5mm jack to USB, I've only ever had massive issues with USB audio devices.

    2. MagicalFlyingFox


      HD6xx's go for around $290 AUD when on sale, quite a bit more expensive then the logitech G432s.

    3. sohojacques


      Sony MDR7506s are $144 AUD on Amazon. I’ve got the original version and they’re great. Audio Technica M40x’s are similar coin and have an excellent reputation.

    4. Assassin7


      Im looking for around or less than $200NZD probably, so yeah.


      Im not an Audiophile, so if the sound quality is as good as my current G430s thats good enough for me. Comfort and Build quality are what im after mainly. 

  17. wtf did they do to this game in the 3 months I havent played

    2. Assassin7


      Not yet, I literally only played the STB lol. Took a few games to get back into the swing of things.


      But for the bonus, I run optics on my 140 for example over vents. But im supposed to put a "mobility" thing on my 140, so I get no extra bonus for my standard rammer/vstab/optics setup.


      Though that said, is that still the best setup for general mediums?

      I just threw my improved rammer/vents/vstab on my STB again after they got demounted

    3. Rexxie


      Yeah it's still the best setup. You have some options if youre playing baby tiers and cant use vstab, but thats about all. Optics vs boosted vents is kind of a tossup now too. Otherwise most mediums just have to ignore their mobility slot.

      I dont really like the specialty slots either. Not nerfing rammer or vstab was a mistake too, because it really limits what choices you have. I really do like the other equipment changes, though. Heavies, tds, and low tier meds actually have a pretty healthy array of options.

    4. lavawing


      The mobility bonus is typically wasted on mediums most of which don't need any more mobility anyway. Autoloaders can benefit from IRM, and the slower armoured mediums get a lot of mileage out of turbocharger, but for most of the generic mediums, e.g. T-44, T-54, Patton, etc, the old set ups will still be optimal, with vents in place of optics if you have a good crew.

      Likewise, heavies that aren't bricks don't get much out of improved hardening and the like, and vents is still the most usual option. I'm not sure if it would be any better for game balance, but I do wonder if the changes would be better if mediums got the survivability bonus and heavies got the mobility boost.

  18. me to WG Support: Every time theres an update for tanks, the game center decides that there is no internet connection and it cannot update, The only way to fix it is to uninstall and re install Tanks, I dont want to have to uninstall and reinstall every time theres a new update.


    WG support: how about you Re install the game and see if that fixes it?



    1. DrWeb7_1


      RU players also reported that WGC shouted "check internet connection, download paused" while downloading updates for the game.

  19. WG game center is a pile of steaming shit.


    like, 3 months ago? I wanted to play tanks. It had an update. I tried to download the update. 

    "Unable to Download update, please check your internet connection and try again"

    I had to completely wipe the game center and tanks, and re install both to get it to work.

    Today, Feel like playing tanks. havent played in a month or so.

    "Unable to Download update, please check your internet connection and try again"

    Fuck off WG. 


    Edit: oh but WoWS updates just fine

    1. RedwoodOriginal


      RNG is built in game center, there is 25% chance that it wont work l like it should.

  20. mfw they wont let me have the new battle hardened badge already unlocked even though I've got 2500 battles in my STB-1.


    1. Private_Miros


      Update postponed because of technical issues, so there might be patch on US to set some things right.

    2. Assassin7


      I have no idea about anything in this update, I just logged in, got told "hey new stuff here" and looked at it lol.

      so I wouldnt know

    3. BadLuckCharm


      They don't care if you did that crap before, they want to know if you can pull that stuff off now.


  21. Some People here like cars right? Taken today at a car meet I went to

      Supras aren't very interesting over here. Heck even the Skyline GTRs draw no attention. Both are pretty common. 

      Everyone was actually crowding around the NSX, and some dude in an MX-5 with a turbo and the exhaust sticking out the bonnet lol. (Quite illegal here)

      Stock NSX are hot

  22. 0 new covid cases in NZ today. Fucking go us

  23. tier 3-5 tanks feel like they have literally no alpha now, its kinda funny. But it actually feels better, you can actually play a lot more "properly" with them now because you actually have usable HP.

      I didnt try tier 6, only 3 and 4 lol.

      for real, low tiers were dead for a long time, it's kinda fun actually

      I'm kinda sad there is no fast pace game play tiers anymore.
