  1. Last 2 years have been kind of weird for me, had to take on a lot of personal problems and I guess it helped me out. I kinda came across the realization recently that as a kid I chronically played videogames not primarily out of enjoyment but as a way to get away from responsibilities and procrastinate, as well as run away from personal problems. As a result of this I never truly enjoyed, but rather just kinda stayed a stressball while playing any game, including WoT, so it was extremely easy to get me tilted and toxic despite me being alright irl. Since realizing this, and learning to separate my career and personal life, I started enjoying life more, and I just play games sometimes for fun now, hopefully I'll be back in WoT as a much more positive person, albeit a bit less active. Reason im reintroducing myself is because im looking for some platoonmates to just kinda have some easygoing games, chill with. Anyone wanna play?
  2. It's been my opinion for years that it's not possible within physical fucking reality to balance the game when every single slab of armor in the game faces 2 shells that are identical, except for their penetration values. Either people would bitch that their heavy tank is pure butter to gold, or other people would bitch that the superheavies cant be fought without gold. Made me a bitter boi and I quit playing. The fact that theyre changing this is gonna turn up a shitstorm of rebalancing but overall I think this is the bitter medicine world of tanks needed, gonna be pretty celebratory if world of tanks actually follows through on this.
  3. Ok so personally I am much more comfortable playing heavy tanks. However, I'm playing ranked battles and am finding myself getting gold spammed a lot. Is it worth it to simply give up on playing a heavy tank in that game mode, and only touch mediums? I feel like the benefits of armor are pretty low compared to the mobility and gun handling. I love my IS-7 and wanna play it for fun as well, but I won't if it screws up my chance of winning.
  4. Thank you my bros, I kinda figured it would boil down to patriot vs lowe, both are awesome looking, but I think I will choose the option of patriot due to the convincing argument @nabucodonsor made about how the lowe is more passive and the patriot can dictate the fight better. This is important as it will be a good and dynamic learning platform for the player compared to the lowes often static and unchanging playstyle. I'm all done here, again thanks a bunch for the advice!
  5. My friend got into this game casually like a year ago and is playing more often now that he got to tier 5, he's almost at 7 now. I try my best to guide him towards playing ok, platooning with him, telling him where to shoot and how to angle armor. It makes me cringe though how hard it is for him to get credits so i figured I'd buy him a premium tank for his birthday coming up, since he's not terrible. I'd like to get him something noob friendly but also something that would engage and help him evolve as a player. I personally love the lowe, it's not retarded like the 252, but when you play right and carefully you can do ridiculously well. I'm not very familiar with other premiums, I'm thinking perhaps one of the Americans is also good, but that's why I'm here, because I have no clue. It also doesnt help that I've been back only for a couple weeks after a 6 month absence so I'm kind of out of the loop. What would the collective wotlabs community say on this?
  6. To be honest, my guess from personal cultural experience is that the Russians were like "cyka blyat, we dont understand americans good", so they went ahead and hired someone who advertised themselves as a person in tune with the US business scene and gave him free reign. After that, said guy likely went ahead and just hired his friends rather than actual competent workers. It would explain the super cringy world of tanks ads that usually make me embarrassed to be playing. It would also explain the sudden extreme SJW response to foch, since theyre automatically just doing what corporate america does, rather than being actually fucking competent in communicating and analyzing a situation.
  7. Legit had trouble figuring out where to post about a wot contest Too bad prank channels are out of style
  8. So basically the mission offers 10 prizes of 1000 gold to people who manage to make the word "military" out of the first letters of players that you kill through multiple battles. you post the screenshots of all the battles with the kills in a forum and pray. I am the juicy prime cut, holding the rarest of the letters, lol, so I am going to be playing a bit less aggressive to not get yolo'd. This is also a warning to anyone else who matches one of the letters. http://tankwarroom.com/article/857/get-free-gold-in-the-world-of-tanks-writing-in-the-sand-contest
  9. I'll give an upvote, it's like watching the final breath of a unicorn that gives people cancer, diahrrea, and herpes, oddly beautiful and sad in a way. I wonder if we'll ever be able to play 2011 wot, just to feel the difference the game has gone through?
  10. I can see this as a positive change. The new frontline game mode is gonna be the call of duty to the standard counter strike style of play in tanks, and if nurtured properly through marketing and being nice to players, will be able to attract a large number of new players purely by enhancing the game's diversity. I think one of the ways they're going to populate the frontline game mode is by introducing the aforementioned new currency as something unique to the game mode, functioning kind of like SH resources in acquisition, and providing some generally nice benefits to the players when used. If the above all actually happens, I expect a major marketing campaign for wot to be thrown down. Just my speculation
  11. I don't really get the hate about the stun effect, it's just a 30% reduction in effectiveness that doesn't even affect you unless you're being focused down by two arties. Personally the massive splash and being able to hit enemies that are behind serious cover is what annoys me more.
  12. I love the aesthetic of these big uneven bump covered tanks. They remind me of a classic and delicious Belorussian candy we sometimes got to have as children in festivities, it was called "potato".
  13. Among all of this balancing and RNG anger I'm kinda sad. The things I'm seeing are not encouraging, and despite continued success, the lack of an esports scene that generates income, even with extreme financial life support from WG, is a red flag. I really hope this game stays healthy and gets the things it needs to continue for a lot longer because I love it a lot more than other competitive games.
