  1. Anyone use the aimtime indicator mod? Feels pretty good, would recommend.

      I don't use mods because they're as unfair and unsportsmanlike as firing gold ammo :nanodoge:

      Yes, as part of Aslain's modpack. It's interesting, but not sure if that useful. I notice I don't really take heed of it in battle itself.

    3. dustygator

      It's been a must have for me for at least a few years (since I started using Aslain).

      Shell flight time is the most valuable bit (especially for arty), but the dynamic aim time is great as well. Being able to time peeking before reload is fully finished, having a reference point when deciding whether to snap shot/aim partially/aim fully.

      There is also a dynamic shot dispersion display; I have it disabled, but am interested in using it to test out some theories on equipment & gun handling.

  3. tomato.gg looking kinda good, combines wotlabs, wot-news, and wotgarage features in one smooth website. got your session stats, tank curves, moe, etc.

    feels kind of like betrayal to use it thooo

      I'd love some feedback on that. What do you think I could add to improve the WoTLabs experience?

    3. Rexxie

      Rexxie

      One big thing that stands out to me is having something similar to tomato's session log. Wotlabs' period breakdowns are great, but being able to see all your individual sessions at a glance and break those down is wonderful. At the very least making the current breakdowns more visible and not entirely hidden behind a Show button might be an improvement. I think that's info a lot of people are interested in seeing but might not know exists.

      I also like that you can see your WGR there. I know it gets memed on, but it's something casual players like looking at.

      Tank curves are also huge to me, but I'm not sure that's entirely within what you see for wotlabs. It also sounds a little expensive to actually make useful :(

      I know this is absolutely outside of wotlabs' scope, but if there's a developer out there with more storage capacity than sense, any VBA replacement site would instantly become the most popular fansite in the game. There's a lot of demand. Showing the most effective/popular equipment/crew configs, tank economy stats helping people decide what to buy, etc. are all things people adored and just don't exist currently.

      yea i feel like vbaddict is the most missed resource with no real alternative

      also the fact that tomato.gg pulls from NA seems to skews things so much compared to other similar sites, considering lower population and how that affects data

      I'm running the standard rammer/vstab/optics, nothing weird, and definitely wouldnt run optics if I had a better crew. I'd love to try some dif setups though, tank would benefit a lot from turbo.

      Kpz is really good but I like the insane damage output better as I can manage that without any armour to work with - Kpz likely is the better tank, just not for me @lavawing

      I mean if I was interested in playing WoT as a first-timer in 2020, you bet I'd be buying an account second-hand instead of grinding from scratch. Why spend time and money getting tanks you would actually want to play, versus just money? It'll be slow as hell making progress without meta t8 premiums, and WG doesn't exactly sell those for cheap. Why not pay a small premium and get some decent crews and t10s on top?

    3. Jesse_the_Scout

      Jesse_the_Scout

      Bot to grind the modules and then actually play the tank once it's elited. No pain of playing stock, and all you have to do is ruin the game for everyone else.

      Ive never had the ground kill me, but Ive jumped off and watched EBRs jump off places with no damage that any other tank would lose several hundred health from, which I think is bullshit

    4. echo9835

      sometimes EBRs hit small depressions in the ground and the physics engine smites them by flipping them over.

      Baby Bobject is great. It’s so stupidly OP when top tier (which happened a lot before I stopped playing on SEA). Only HE can stop you. 

  11. Skorpion is on sale, but at 10,100 gold it is by far the most expensive TD so far. I want the tank but that is way too expensive. They know how much people want it.

      S1 absolutely for platoons @SchnitzelTruck. I don't think I've ever launched in it solo and yea it's pure bitch mode. You get wins in it by having friends and knowing all the bitch spots. Turbo is for going backwards faster!

    3. RedwoodOriginal

      RedwoodOriginal

      I have both SU and Skorp(i got skorp g not while ago with coupon for 20% off). My take on it is; they are very similar and yet so different. Both are fun, and there is something in SU 530 alpha and its invisi hacks(with good crew), and there is something in Skorps 360° turret and its mobility. Skorp is tall, and that is good for some situations and bad for situations when you get hit in forehead and you cant hit back cause its gun is lower than its forehead, and SU; is low and can hide anywhere, but it cant shoot over some rocks and that is anyoing cause you need to overexpose to return fire. Skorp can be more aggresive cause of turret, but Su is perfect for ambush cause of camo and alpha. Skorp has better pen, but SU has bigger gun and can overmatch more. If i would need to choose only one, i would go for Su cause of more alpha and camo, that thing is monster when its not spotted.

    4. kolni

      kolni

      Probably had more to do with their release periods but Skorp G is still my 2nd highest damage tier 8 behind the Caern, so I always had a soft spot for it as it is just so easy to play. Not the same with the SU, but it might be that T8 hit another wave of powercreep between them less than the difference between the tanks

      S1 cuz siege is so quick makes it fairly easy to do well, go to a losing flank and it’s pretty much 3k If you have a bush to use every time but it’s so boring to play losing gameplay all the time

  12. Is there no way to see all the styles you have applied to tanks? I just realized tanks can have a preset style and a custom style, so I have a ton of styles hidden under the other. Seems like all I can do is check every single tank in my garage individually.

    1. ikitai

      There is a checkbox under the filter to see the camo/styles on other tanks.

      De nada. I had always wondered that. Just started setting up my CS-52 LIS and was wondering what cool looks I could apply besides the Fox style.

      when you play on SEA and the most articulate appeals for action you will ever get are 'dog MT go spot',  'useless Viet LT' and '☐☐☐☐☐', that tends not to be a problem

      I think the worst spawns are for slow artillery on the exposed side of the tracks on Ensk, who get spotted before they can rotate enough to significantly relocate.

      Agreed. Except for the most lopsided iteration of Swamp, it was always a good example of map design based on a kind of rotational symmetry rather than the reflection symmetry of straight corridor maps. There was a lot of playable area depending on your vehicle. I loved that map. 

      I feel like there's a bad caricature of Swamp buried inside Empire's Border, in a way.

      Destructive firepower. Honestly fairly reliable armour against tier 8 and below. Very mobile. 

    3. Balthazars

      Balthazars

      Absolutely fun. I play mine like a gimped medium half the time due to its mobility and its highly effective armour against same-and-lower tier tanks. Gun can be a bit derpy at times but is overall excellent. Has low profile and great camo so can bush-kemp when required. I know you ground through the tech-tree not that long ago, it is so much better than the tech-tree tier 8 it's not even funny.

    4. lavawing

      lavawing

      I play it as an assault TD, i.e. badly.

      My .50 cents:

      • Gets mauled by the new fast heaviums (Obj thing, E75TS, Gatorade)
      • Despite being a casemate TD gun isn't particularly impressive
      • HEAT as gold exacerbates unreliability of the gun
      • Scales a lot with how well you play vision games
      • Overall fun but uncomfortable to play

      Tbh I much prefer the JP II even after the mantlet nerfs - ymmv

      I think you're supposed to 340 HEAT through the turret front/mantlet; same for the hull. (rip if you have less than 250 pen).

      M46 is pretty similar but the threshold drops to 220 and the lower part becomes weaker when using gun depression - not that you'd have time to aim in practice

    3. sohojacques

      sohojacques

      My recollection of the M48’s turret is that it gets penned by tier 9-10 HEAT basically everywhere all the time. M46 gets smacked in it’s big forehead by premium shell wielding tier 8s...

    4. Rexxie

      Rexxie

      It can get penned, but its just a roll of the dice. 330 HEAT looks like this:

      image.png

      M48 turret armor is just crazy unreliable on either side. There's no way to reliably pen it in any tank unless it decides to park for you. You just have to throw gold at it and pull the 50% chance to pen slot machine.

      Empires Border: Massive advantage to south spawn, quicker climb up the hill in south means they catch north spawn heavies halfway up.

      Mines: North team gets up hill first

      Minsk: South spawn has a platform that allows them to shoot enemy tanks contesting the middle undetected and with a height advantage.

      Mountain Pass: LOL

      Pearl River: North spawn seems to have timing advantage for both middle and north areas

      Redshire: South spawn gets to farm enemy heavy cross + easily punish their LTs 

      Studzianzki: Win the middle ditch or lose

      GehakteMolen

      mountain pass seems win-wise balanced imo, unless u loose to many crossing, once they cross, the balcony side has it much easier clearing this side. If i loose, its because the team fails to push into enemy base succesfull.

      On mines its more tanks / spawn place of your fast tanks / courage as map side, i loose hill equal much on both side (and if arty pre aims mid, instead of relocating fast) (also south can loose its arty at start, north almost never does)
