      Do you enjoy tanks that are shit to play and shit to play against?

      Would you play a turretless Chrysler that's slow?

      Do you believe that hard accuracy is meaningless?

      If your answer to all three questions is yes, by all means go and grab it.

  3. Do we know how much shooting the drive wheels on tracks increases module damage? I'm curious how much hp your tracks need to have before they start taking multiple hits to break.

      I always thought it was full "device" damage for a hit to the drive wheels and 1/3 damage for a hit anywhere else on the suspension, but it's been a long time since I looked at stuff like that.

      @lavawing I'm trying to find some breakpoints for hardening. Mostly, which heavies can take two hits, and whether or not any medium can manage it. The whole not-being-tracked thing feels powerful but I'm not sure if the maths will pan out to allow it on meds.

      @Jesse_the_Scout I thought so too, but I couldn't reproduce it in a training room. Shooting anywhere on the suspension seemed to do entirely normal/full module damage. Shooting the drive wheel did enough module damage that a 360 HP track broke after a 150 HP hit. If its a multiplier, it's at least more than 2x, but I havent managed to figure it out yet.

      I always thought it went off of shot calibre, but they might've changed it in the years since I've played.

  5. The TVP VTU being the same tier as the CS-52 has to be one of the cruelest jokes in the game

      What made me use the TVP is that it's the same exact thing as the CS-52 but entirely worse. I cant think of any example in the game where one tank is as close to a straight upgrade as the LIS is to the TVP. The closest thing we ever had was the old WZ-131 vs Type 62, but at least in that case it was incredibly minor.

      The CDC is a better example of how far powercreep has come, but at least it's unique. There's a reason someone might play it. Meanwhile the TVP is worse in literally any imaginable scenario.

      CDC is hardly unique now, the Prog does everything it can do but better.

      PlanetaryGenocide

      I'm actually torn on that one - on the one hand, tier 3 MM is generally workable on such a small map, but on the other hand, retarded shit like the FCM Pak exists and to my knowledge there isn't anything with near-max view range in tier 2 so there's definitely a valid argument for tier 2...

      I think Yankee wouldn't let women into G for the longest time because of how some males act when they think they've encountered a woman on the internet.  It's pretty embarrassing to witness.

      Its retarded. We've got a friend in our online group whos a girl. Shes just one of the group. no one is creepy to her or anything. 

       

      the fact that girls have to do that sucks. Another good friend from Tanks for the longest time hid that she was a girl, never even speaking in Teamspeak either, probably because of that level of bullshit, Even though I didnt think about that being the reason at all at first.

      I remember hearing how someone got kicked from a clan because they were a girl once they popped up on teamspeak. 

  9. At what point would you consider the LIS worth buying compared to the effort of continuing the grind/missing out on post-grind rewards? After Stage 8? 9?

      Each day you play the LIS before the end of the event you get a day of premium and 3 credit boosters along with a 1-3 universal manuals. It's not much, but it could be a good enough reason not to wait until the last minute, especially if you aren't rolling in credit boosters.

    3. sohojacques

      sohojacques

      Not playing WoT of late. But in past marathons, if I liked the look of the vehicle it was at least after completing stage seven for me. Before that you’re basically paying full price for a premium (I don’t value all the stuff bundled in with the tank).

    4. sr360

      sr360

      Yeah, I'd say stage 7. 

  10. What is up with the Italian T6, seriously. Tank looks SO good on paper, but this is literally the trashiest experience I've ever had in a T6 med. Gun derps every shot, every tracking shot also nukes your engine, it's fat and slow and gets eaten alive by M44s. I can't stand this tank at all.

      it gets like .37-.38 accuracy without food and .35 with food, so the difference is pretty huge IMO. anything below .35 accuracy is going to feel like a blunderbuss unless compensated by good bloom, and the low tier Italians have derpgun shell velocities making the guns even worse.

      food and APCR would be optional if the gun behaved more like the old 3001P, but it doesn't. so you have to tame the gun handling by any means possible. food obviously helps a lot. APCR gives it a touch more shell velocity and lets you get away with sloppy centre mass shots.

      rip being broke

    3. Balthazars

      Balthazars

      @PlanetaryGenocide The tier 7 is definitely an improvement, it gets upgrades in the areas that matter most: gun handling, mobility and penetration. My performance jumps markedly in the tier 7 relative to the tier 6 (although not as starkly as yours!), about an extra 1.5 shots of damage per game, and an extra 6% in win rate (although less than 100 games for both).

    4. PlanetaryGenocide

      PlanetaryGenocide

      yeah I was very average in the tier 6. I will admit i free xp'd the elite modules on the tier 7 before ever playing a match in it so that may account for the stark improvement (I think I did the same on the tier 6, but, well... the tier 6 still sucks dick).

      I also had decent matchmaking - i think I went on a double digit winning streak when i first played it before finally eating my first loss.

  11. All the windows in Erlenberg's city really mess with WG's spotting system. This poor Leopard 1 on the hills kept getting lit and shot at by my visionless FV215B through a pretty large opening on the second story of one of the buildings around F5. Not once did the vision system care to light me. Port had the same issue and they removed it, not sure why they made the same mistake again.

      I've been playing the Lorraine, which is the perfect assassin against them. Wait for them to clip, move in and if they've taken even a lick of damage already you can full clip them. You're fast enough to chase and, if you don't clip them, fast enough to get back to cover.

    4. lavawing

      lavawing

      best solution for me so far was run the IS-3A and fight cancer with cancer. lategame becomes a coin toss between who can catch who out, but that's better than always getting two clipped

      plus, the Bourrasque has such shit base accuracy, and the IS-3's profile is so troll, that you will always bounce half the shots taken regardless of aim/angling.

      wotinspector's armor tool is just tanks.gg with a different UI, tank inspector is different. Still hoping someone picks it up, the team made it open source but no one has bothered so far.

      Performance tracking is one thing, but VBA's big thing was server stats that aren't tracked in any other database. Average income per tank, winrates per map and per mode, etc. It would be like losing wot-news' tank curves, that info is just nowhere else. 

  15. AMX CDA 105 vs Kanonen 105 for bushkemp TD?

      Deus__Ex__Machina

      personally id pick the CDA in this case, but from what i know the kanonen 105 isnt very good while the CDA is meh/ok-ish

    3. lavawing

      lavawing

      neither. I have the CDA and have like tier 8 med levels of DPG in it. it's passive af and you have neither alpha nor DPM, and the accuracy, while extremely good, is situational because of the non existent gun arc.

      it's fast, but it's a passive TD by nature, so it doesn't. the undisputed god king of tier 8 bushwankers is the SU-130. bigger alpha, more DPM, plus a turret. it's one-note, but that doesn't matter when that one note of yours is 520 alpha on a mobile platform with 40 ish camo.

      with the 105mm TDs, it's rare to farm to the point where you win games, and you quickly realise that none of these tanks, because of their inability to dictate engagements, are actually any better at farming than the better tier 8 meds/heavies.

    4. Rexxie

      Rexxie

      Oh, I absolutely know they suck. There's no reason to play any of them when the SU-130/Skorp/WZ exist. Hell, the T-103 has more going for it. But they're free, and WG is "smart" enough not to put any of their broken new-age premiums into the referral reward system. I'm not going to be spending any money on the game for the forseeable future so I'm kind of stuck with the trash WG lets me play with.

It says "To see who's fucking us", credits to Božesačuvaj - guys who created this, and many more great content. And someone, after one whole month or more, reported me for that and tried to create GSPOT for him self, but i found him and reported him.

      I got chatbanned a few years ago for calling someone a "dumb fucking Philistine" a few years ago after they teamkilled me, but  oddly enough calling an artillery player degenerate and asking them to jump off a bridge into a box of heroin needles didn't do it.  I think Wargaming rolled out a new algorithm and it is still being tweaked.

      I didn't realise it had such a big weakspot.

      I checked on tanks.gg and they also added in the side turret weakspot the the PZ has?

      That being the case, how is it any better than the PZ?

    3. Rexxie

      Rexxie

      The only thing better is that the turret ring has strips of thicker armor on that weakspot. 200-160mm instead of just 160. Having a 230mm effective weakspot vs 205mm is of questionable utility in t10 games, though.

      Would you recommend not even going there if you don't have the speed to get to D0 quickly? I like to bring heavies there sometimes but I can never beat the progetto swarm to that spot.

    3. ZXrage

      ZXrage

      The worse your speed or armor is the riskier it becomes to get there, recommended that it should be rushed in pairs so you could at least share damage taken

      I simply never play there, from either side

      been going 1-2 in everything and sniping from bushes on both sides in literally everything since they added that stupid ridge

  20. In typical WG fashion, the Ruinberg update made the town completely busted for north spawn. The elevated platform they added at E2 is basically an I Win button for hulldown tanks. South cant contest the courtyard anymore- literally every time I drive up there I can fall asleep and still end up with 1k+ base xp.

  21. Is the heavy brawling area on Glacier even worth anything? Its disconnected from the rest of the map, leaves you vulnerable while getting to it, and pushing from it into the other base is complete suicide unless you also own the middle. It seems like the only saving grace is that there's arty cover.

      Really looking at it, it feels like you could win 90% of pub games by just overloading the east and mid and completely ignoring the brawling area. There's no like, actual advantage to winning it. It's just that pubbies will go there anyway so there's hp to farm there.

      HP to farm there. That is it.

    3. Assassin7

      Assassin7

      I only play the middle on that map in all my tanks.

       

      North is useless I agree, and south is a mega bottleneck and really theres only room on that road for single file anyway. Plus you get shot at in the side from mid. 

    4. kolni

      kolni

      It's similar to Pilsen in that the intented heavy area has close to zero map value but heavy tanks are still going there and make up for enough of the HP pool to have decent games in damage, but in terms of winning contributions it's close to zero since one double bushed TDs at 1 HP can hold 3-4 up-tiered full HP heavies from ever pushing further 

      I play mid early but I will always rotate into the heavy area if we're losing east as you're going to get surrounded middle unless you're winning east - basically nowhere left to run but there

      Kharkov was one of the better maps of the pre 1.0 era, and in true WG fashion it was utterly destroyed.

  24. T1 Heavy with a turbocharger and hardening is disgusting. Drive to the medium spot, R-R-2-2-RMB-LMB, collect 2k DPG in every T5/6 game. Definitely a winner in the equipment shift, I imagine the M6 is too.

      M6 has the pen and alpha to stay relevant in unfavorable circumstances and isn't crippled by a slow inmobile platform.

    3. lavawing

      lavawing

      VK still has 196 pen and only 20 less alpha. The platform is slower to accelerate but more agile. Also under the new MM you meet tier 7s more often than 8s, in which case the extra HP helps more than the extra (overkill) pen.

    4. Rexxie

      Rexxie

      Yeah the 3601 looks absolutely busted and does what almost every T6 HT does but better. Still think the M6 is still good compared to most t6 tanks though, and there's no denying melting through T8 heavies with 243 pen is a big deal.

      Just going through the us heavy line and trying them all out, might try to mark them all but I don't know if I can stomach sealclubbing in T5/6 long enough.
