    Those Rheinmetalls are completely destroying the game, we need a few more counters. No worries though, the wheelies are still fast enough to avoid turbo-poles.
    Really though I cant see what other niche they are trying to make this fill other than hill rushing.

    A bit of in-game chat banter or calling your team idiots is probably fine, but telling someone to off themself or death threats are probably where I'd draw the line for what actual toxic chat looks like. It's just a game, fellas

    the double shot is near useless in most situations and can be an RNG roll. often its smarter to play the tanks single shot/auto-re loader style. the double shot not only takes time to charge up, but it also ruins ur DPM far more than if you had just dumped both shells 1 by 1. Also both shells fly linear when you double shoot, so if ur shot misses or goes to armor it will bounce, it means both shells will typically miss/bounce. its basically just a fun gimmick to get off a meaty hit. 
    also ive re-bound the double fire key to MB4 and im able to hold LMB to fire once loaded just fine

    While Id still much rather see nerfs to the newer tanks and slowing down of power creep, Im highly doubting Ill be getting my wish so I guess its at least nice that they are finally giving some sort of love to older tanks.
     
    My fear is making the E5 too sameish to the SC. But when I think about it, other than just making it faster, how CAN they buff it so its not made more sameish to a tank that has more armour, more DPM, and better gun handling, when gun handling and DPM were originally the E5s strong suits...
     
     
    Dammit to me it still feels like things need nerfs because in my mind, the E5s current power level is what they SHOULD be aiming for in terms of vehicle balance, when instead its currently basically a tier 9.5...

    Kind of more a general line question but I didn't want to make a new thread - I'm relearning the game and I was curious what the current opinion is on the best way to use double barrels? I grabbed the IS-2-II and have been kind of scratching my head on how to make use of the gun.
    There's the rare situation where I need some extra alpha but that chargeup time for the dual shot feels like it almost defeats the purpose of the feature & I just end up playing it like an autoloader that I can take a little more time with. I'm also really struggling with not being able to hold LMB to fire off shells as soon as they're loaded. If I change the salvo hotkey, will I be able to do that again?

    *Cranky old man*  Back in my day...
    Grinding/Tank progression/Free XP
    It used to be that the only way to skip stock grinds/garbage tanks without gold was to slowly earn 5% of battle XP.  Free XP conversions never went on sale. Pay @ 25 to 1 gold or GTFO.
    -> Now
    Daily missions can give out 1.5k+ free XP. Some campaign and event missions give it out as well (and scavenger hunt gave out  45k a month, all you had to do was play two battles) Blueprints everywhere. Holiday 2019 gave out enough to skip an entire tier X grind (sans modules)... for every single nation. x5 XP boosters. At one point I had 75+ of them and avoided playing elite tanks/started new lines just so I wouldn't waste them. Personal & clan reserves give valuable boosts as well and are handed out like candy. Crew XP is shortcut via girls/0-skill (I have 13 sitting in my barracks that I don't know what to do with) and skill books (yes, big skill books are a credit sink, but small ones get handed out pretty often and it doesn't take that many to get sixth sense) Premium Economy
    Benefit of having premium is bigger than ever, but there are so many ways to get some of it from free. Twitch Prime loot, tank rewards, free event/battle pass rewards, etc. It's especially good for people who only play occasionally (weekends, etc) as you don't fall into the trap of wasting premium on days you wouldn't normally play.
    Credits are now the main time waster (instead of XP), but boosters/FL/both make it really easy. Earlier this year, I would just time my Twitch Prime loot redemption on the weekend of FL, pop some of the 200+ 50% credit boosters I had sitting around and shit out 1M credits per hour.
    Sales (on tech tree tanks/consumables/equipment) are less frequent but are easily managed with planning. I rarely pay full price on any of those.
    Premium Tanks
    Probably the least improvement, but still better than before. Before, tech tree premiums often went on 30% gold discount often but getting premium tanks for free (above say tier V) was hard.
    Now, it's more divided. The most OP premiums are locked behind the cash only online shop (tourny/CW gold won't get you a foot in the door). But, there are so many ways to get useful tanks for fun/credit grinding.
    Tank rewards has pretty much handed out every premium tank under tier VIII out by now. You can cheese recruit system to get that valuable first tier VIII prem. Marathons have given access to very meta (Renegade/EBR/Bourrasque/T-44-100) tanks if you are willing to no-life it. Black Market has offered useful prems (off the top of my head Caern AX/Lansen/Black Dog) for totally achievable credit cost Trade-in system does cost some gold but lets you get rid of trash power-creeped tanks. Bond shop has useful tanks. FL/Ranked/Campaigns give to you access to sexy AF rewards tanks Old man yells at cloud
    Is F2P a fun experience for a completely new player? Probably not, but more because the game has a very steep learning curve rather than WG extorting you every step you try to take. WG hands out almost everything you need to have fun in the game for free, if you are willing to play enough games.
    For transparency, I've spent ~250 since 2013 (100% F2P between beta reset and 2013, with breaks in 2012/16/19)
    ~$40 in nvidia bonus codes in 2014 Large gold + credits bundle ($70) in 2015 Rudy when it was first offered (~$30) Big loot box ($99) in 2018 that got me Defender+IS-3a+SkorpG+E25+Lefefe+30k gold Smallest gold bundle ($7) in 2019 for black market to top and try to get Type 59G (failed) Ignoring everything except random battles (16k and counting), my rough math puts me at 14 cents an hour. Hard to beat that return on investment.
    I've played Silver League, high level CW (earning Chieftain/907/M60) and more stronkhold time than I would like to admit. I have OP tanks that I don't even take out of the garage because they bore me, that's how good I have it in WoT.
    Hating on Wot is super common around these parts, which isn't surprising given how much time some of us have sunk into the game. But I don't regret getting into this game at all. I rage and I complain but I will never take for granted the enjoyment this game has brought me over the past decade.

    Rexxie got a reaction from Balthazars in My impressions of the Polish line (Wotlabs edition)   
    I honestly felt like the T5 was kind overpowered? Super fast, really useful turret armor and a pretty meaty gun for the tier. Great pen with APCR too, 175 will work on basically anything you're gunna fight. Felt like I could always get my gun on target.
    The T6 though, wow. It might be the worst tank in the game. Some of the bottom-feeding T6 TDs might give it a run for its money just because it has a turret, but I don't know. Moves like a churchill, one of the worst 220-250 alpha guns in the game, poorly armored, low HP, anemic view range. Almost everything that could go wrong on this tank has gone wrong. It's a T5, and if WG wants to shoehorn it into T6 without changing its role it needs to have TOG levels of HP.
    Obviously looking forward to the T7, I'll probably run the T6 for a doubles for a couple days and free xp the rest.

    First time playing since 2018! Mostly pleasant! I'm really impressed at how much better the new/free player experience is. There's still a lot I can complain about and some things are obviously worse than when I left, but I'm having fun playing with a new player, which is a first for me.
    Oh I'm a girl now. I cant see my health bar when my tits are covering the screen, so I always just assume it's infinite and yolo in on every tank I play. It doesn't work. I don't care.

    If you're gonna be carrying around a bag of meat for the rest of your life, you might as well like it. (but it's really great to hear that you have found a body that you are comfortable and happy in) 
     
    Also good to hear that you are enjoying tanks again. Having been playing since the beta days (10 years now!), I think WoT is in the best shape it has ever been (both gameplay and overall experience including F2P). No, it's not perfect and yes, the fixes to a lot of complaints seem blindly obvious to us but that doesn't dimish the massive improvements WG have made.

    I miss you all! I remember sitting down loading up WoT on release day, I was just a kid sitting in a loveseat clicking on pixel tanks with an old laptop that's now under my bed. So many years, but my favorite was around the time of the first campaign, 2013.

    Because nothing warms my frilly little heart on Valentine's more than the cold embrace of death, I ground out the entire 180k XP needed to finish the 65t this morning in a single sitting. I hope I choke to death on a massive cock before this garbage heap of a vehicle crosses my mind again.

    It is either one of the following:  you do not read, do not care, or lie.  Regardless of what I may say, any of or combination of the former traits mean someone impossible to talk with.

    Super congrats hibachi! We're so proud of you. 
    I don't like to talk about my life much, but things have been really rough on me for the past six months or so. Bad health, bad experiences, and losing my SO has made for a pretty rough year. I've gotten some things done that I've always wanted to, but there's one thing I haven't been able to do, and that's come out about my sexuality. I just can't work up the courage, especially knowing how some people dear to me would take it.
    I have gotten to talk with Bun more often though, and I'm trying to make some new friends, so things aren't all bad. Still besties with @Zytyx, who is a precious bean, by the way!

    I know it's late.  But I'm happy this thread continued for as long as it did.  My long departure from it was probably not the best thing.  However I had my reasons.  I want to say congratulations to Hibachi and everyone else who has really been able to make use of it.  Thank you for participating.
