  1. I'll preface this by saying I don't watch foch. I don't watch wot content in general, either the streamer or boring, bad, or they take the game way too seriously. Foch ticks at least two of those boxes. He sounds like someone that has decided the game is shit years ago and chose the worst possible way to react to it until now. Most people quit the game, some people just stop caring, but then there's people like foch who decide to dial into all the bad shit in the game and focus on it until it breaks them. Good on him for quitting. I'm sure doing this wasn't easy when it has been a source of income for so long, but some of his takes are either bad or petty. They sound like they're coming from someone who has spent way too much time in an echo chamber listening to his own frustrations.

      spartan youre lovely and your gpu is still here, in my closet right under my tails

  3. It is funny because this tank would absolutely crush everything in brawls if the moment you get within 50m you could still fucking hit the bottom half of enemy tanks.
  4. Marked it the same game that I unlocked the K91 @ 3.5k combined. Somehow there's only one guy with better stats than me this year which is probably more of a testament to how unpopular it is. You're gunna want optics+food+crewskills because the only thing this excels at is kemp bush and farm spotting damage. It's a rear turreted, unarmored T55A with just enough AP pen to tempt you away from doing the smart thing and spamming broken 330 HEAT. So, awful, but whatever.
  5. Make sure on new crews you train Sit. Aware before Recon on a Commander+Radioman. It's the same thing but better. I would also never train repairs before both vision skills. I would drop the vents for optics if you want vision. Rammer is too important on a med to think of dropping. If you're on a premium account, run food. The profit loss is not significant for a premium vehicle. This should give you a lot more vision capability and rein in that gun handling.
  6. The turret armor on the M46 and M48 trips me up every time, its like my brain cant grasp that those two old paper turrets are basically soviet hovermed turrets now.

      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

      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...

      Rexxie

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

      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

      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)

      I agree entirely.

      Literally cant get over what this event is doing. I've never been one to complain about shit like "weekend teams", but this is actually 3/4s of the matches I've played in the last two days.

      image.png

      I had at least 3 of those last night and wondered when this became a thing?  Tier 9's with a 200 WN8 and 44% winrate bitching about teams is a thing too.

  8. Food is really necessary too do any vision plays without optics, yeah. It kind of sucks, but most meds cannot afford to experiment
  9. Almost time to pick up another trash bond tank. KV-4K and IS-5 are the only things left. Two absolute icons of garbage. Which would you rather suffer in?

      KV-4 ofc!

      u see the IS-5 once in a while + it was cw reward or so at some point, so ppl might confuse u with a cw shitter. With a KV-4k everyone knows u bought it willingly!!

      KV-4K is also a CW reward. That's how I got mine.

    3. GehakteMolen

      GehakteMolen

      @sr360 oh, in that case that argument doesnt rly count, even though still most picked the IS-5 i guess? (the KV-4k is rly rare on EU server, only saw it once)

      Yea theres 5x as many IS-5s on EU and NA

  12. https://worldoftanks.com/en/news/announcements/polar-challenge-announcement-1120/ https://worldoftanks.eu/en/news/general-news/polar-challenge/ 274a on tanks.gg Anyone plan on working through this? Changes from LIS Challenge: "Missions for Mastery" can be completed at T9 again! No credit boosters unless you get the tank The later missions for mastery are slightly harder and entirely damage focused. Less rewards from buying it early. Less credit boosters, fewer manuals, no universal fragments, just a few x5s and crew boosters added. More than last time, I highly recommend you get it at 60-80% off if you want to buy it, there's even less of a reason to get it beforehand.

    ST-II

    I think one of the few things double barrel tanks have going for them is how hard they are to read. A lot of people get confused and will treat you like you have a loaded gun at all times unless they watch you double fire. I feel like it kept people off my back in the IS-3-II a lot more than the actual performance of the tank did - having a 700HP tank refusing to push on you even while you reload was an occasional treat.
  14. Is there a mod for repairing module damage same-frame? I've had like three instances now where I've tracked someone and they repaired it inhumanly fast.

    1. PityFool

      PityFool

      Yea I've run into that a few times too. It'll be a mod/script to insta repair tracks. Was just a few days ago that I tracked a Skorp G going full speed and it didnt even slow him down.

      its an illegal mod you can set to repair certain modules instantly 

  15. I guess I need to pick up a Somua then!
  16. That's a bit lame. Was hoping the marathon tank wouldn't be so similar to the previous one. Tank itself looks okay, but I'm not sure how to feel about it. Looking at it from a typical medium standpoint I think it looks kind of mediocre. However, there's one thing that gives me hope: That side armor is incredible because of the innate slope. No T8 medium comes remotely close; you should be able to out-brawl any heavy that can't/doesn't care to use HEAT to deal with a t8 med. Its not a bad option for a primary credit earner because of the ridiculous pen (227 AP, 289 APCR), but 320 dmg/1k shell cost is not great, especially given you'll probably be throwing a lot more shells into the dirt and flanking much less than a LIS or Lansen. I think it kind of balances out the earnings.
  17. I'm mostly curious why the Char has a higher winrate than the AE1!
  18. Apparently I've only been here since it got redeemed. Did a bit of research on it and it was universally regarded as the best token reward tank, and given how strong the AE Phase is, I figured if this was considered stronger than that then it must be pretty hyped.
  19. Got this tank a couple days ago, I think it's decent. I think its definitely a little overhyped though, the Standard B is better in almost every way except for the random bounces this thing gets on the UFP. The gun handling and dpm on this is real run killer when you want to carry.
  20. Any Murovanka advice? South spawn specifically. Vast majority of the time the forest just gets absolutely swarmed and dunked on. Winrate has dropped from 70% to 50% after the reworks. Should I just be base camping? Is forest just trash now?

      Aah yeah if you have armor then that position works. Always wondered how to do it with lightly armored tanks. There is one weird bush Iyouxin was using and I use it from time to time but it's risky and doesn't work if the heavies decide to camp further back

      @PityFoolI'll have to try that spot out! Looks pretty good for sidescrapers! How is arty there? Feels a little exposed to the east half of the redline.

      That's also my first time watching a 279e replay, holy shit lmao. Feel kinda bad for that Maus and Tort, they got really screwed by pen RNG there. Landed five or six hits that had 60% chance to pen and bounced them all.

    4. PityFool

      PityFool

      @Rexxie imo it's one of the safer spots on the map from arty. I find most clickers like to sit down in the dips on the west redline behind the TDs. As hazzgar mentioned, it is possible to remain completely unspotted in that position. You just need to squash a tree I think and stick to the right side of the front house. I've done it successfully but it requires a bit of camo, it's also a big no-no if they push across to your side of the hollow.  

      Anything with good side or turret armour works really well there. You can pretty much guarantee your team wins that flank with that position. Also yes, 279e is dumb.

  21. Looks awful. Low alpha, no armor, big turret, low hp, bad accuracy, mediocre view range, bad pen and velocity. DPM is only 2180 base, which is not impressive give what I just said. Needs more dpm and better accuracy imho. It wont be good but it would be fun. Right now it is basically a slow HWK with less gundep and camo.
  22. The point at which Modified Configuration becomes viable on your average tank is when you can no longer have your ammorack damaged by any one shell. Your ammorack will get damaged as soon as its module HP is lower than the "repaired module hp" stat on that module. Unfortunately this requires stat hunting. Some tanks have a really hard time achieving this. Others have no problems at all. For example, a Chrysler (280 ammorack hp, 190 repaired ammorack hp) with Modified Configuration basically wont get ammorack damaged ever again. A Liberte (250 ammorack hp, 200 repaired ammorack hp) needs Modified Config, Safe Stowage, and the Safe Stowage Directive to achieve the same thing.
  23. Actually curious how people go about 3marking things like the IS-6 nowadays. There's a couple people managing 2.7k+ dpg in it and I wish I could ask them how.

      The 112 is pretty broken imo, the hull armor has been stronger than the 113’s since the lower plate was buffed to 140mm. The gun handling does suck but the heat pen and the insane armor mean that it’s very capable. 

      Thanks for the replay analyzer info. Also, Pity, while I certainly enjoyed the fcm’s speed and dpm, the gun handling was pretty frustrating. Though it would probably be overpowered with good handling, it sucked having such bad bloom/aimtime on 240 alpha.

      I don't know if I can agree, getting 1500 combined dmg for a T92 3-mark is possibly the easiest 3 mark any player could hope for. Lights that have really bad firepower (like the t92) basically just hand you 3-marks as long as you dont play them like EBRs.

      Even when you cant get assisted damage, double bush camo sniping for a paltry 1500 is way, way easier then having to farm 2600 HP worth of Defenders and TS-5s with 181 pen.

      T92 is not 1500 combined (I just 3-marked it a few weeks ago) -- it's closer to 2400 combined. And in an era rife with EBRs zipping around it isn't as easy as it sounds. Having said that, it is easier (for someone like me) than the IS-6.

      Also, I don't know which IS-6 you play, but mine has 225 pen :)

      I was going off of the 3mark garage mod, had no idea it was that inaccurate. I guess the 7201k having 7k marks should have set off some warning signs in my brain, lol.

  24. Oh wow did they completely trash this tank. The armor is complete butter, with the turret reliability reminding me more of the LIS than the old stalinium it used to be. Had a T7 (AT-7) just drill me through the turret multiple times with AP, ending a possible carry. I get what they wanted to do - make this line the buzzsaw line - but they completely missed the mark and we ended up with a tank that kept everything that made it clunky on release without anything else to support it being that way. The K-91 is even worse as a tank, but at least it leans a little harder into one niche without being mediocre at everything. Just upset, this thing was really fun back in the day.
