    Rexxie reacted to Darvek in Elimination: Removed Maps   
    New Day, New Votes:
    Dragon Ridge -  35
    Hidden Village - 22 -3 = 19 I don't understand the Severgorsk hate compared to this. Both corridor maps, but Sev was way better, especially before they reworked it.
    Komarin 0  (First eliminated map.)
    Northwest - 29 Bumped for zbran.
    Pearl River - 42
    Port - 33
    Province - 27
    Severgorsk -  9
    South Coast - 26 +1 = 27 Still liked Pearl River more, but it's in no danger, so I'll vote here.
    Updating to include zbran's votes. His downvote for Komarin is redundant, it's dead. Northwest upvoted.

    Remember these old maps?  While some maps were reworked or rebalanced, these maps were given up on entirely. Which did you truly despise? Which do you dearly miss? Let's find out!
    If you're new to Elimination, the rules are simple - increase the most fun map on the list by 1 and decrease the least fun map on the list by 3. You're allowed to do this once per day, until only a single map remains! Try to explain your choices, even if very briefly. Highlight your increase with GREEN and your decrease with RED if possible. If you cannot use colors, use BOLD for your upvotes and ITALICS for your downvotes. If you've forgotten what these maps are, you can find them on the wiki.
    I do want to mention that some of these maps had multiple iterations and even some current maps have been reworked heavily enough to almost be considered new maps - for simplicity's sake, we will be voting on the last iteration of the map before it was removed, and I will be ignoring heavily-changed current maps. Feel free to mention what you think about previous iterations, though!

    Rexxie got a reaction from Monkey in Leopard 1   
    While it might be easier to compare the Leo and Super Conq today, it's important to remember that back then, the Leopard's advantages would have amounted to far more than they do today. Giving a 2013 purple the choice between your listed advantages and the Leo's 200% more mobility, several orders of magnitude more camo, 10m higher view range, and 40% more shell velocity would have been a far tougher call, predominantly because they were all usable & abusable on almost every map. And like you mentioned, the SConq is probably the most advantaged tank to compare the Leo to, considering it's overpowered even by today's standards. Compared to something more tame, the choice would have been even more difficult.
    It's really hard to really overstate how powerful vision dominance was in the vision meta. It was often possible to win entire flanks (or even games) without ever risking a hit, something the Conq's lack of mobility and neon-sign of a camo value would have held it back from. If vision ever became as powerful as a tool as it used to be, I can absolutely ensure that the Leopard would need very little help to become relevant again.

    The upgraded turret on this is more of a trap than me. Seriously, swap those things around, what wargaming did here makes absolutely no sense. It'd be pretty bad either way, but if they transferred the stats over to the stock turret the thing would at least be competitive with the worst T8 heavies. Right now we're all just playing a tinfoil Liberte. I dont know about worst T8, but if you take some TDs out of the picture it's a serious contender.
    The only good thing I can say about it is that it's up there with the Emil for "most annoying ridge peeker". The Liberte turret is a really messy target, especially on a slightly faster tank, and unlike the T32 it can actually pen you. That's basically its only gimmick though, and it isn't even that impressive of one.

    I'd agree with the terrain resistance buff, struggling to hit 25kph on hard ground was just painful. Changing the upgraded tracks to have better terrain resistances makes sense. The other change I'd suggest would be to switch the turrets around- have the now stock turret be the upgraded turret, and vice versa. That way, the Liberte turret would lead to an increase in gun handling, VR, gun depression, and survivability- instead of being forced to choose between various combinations. This alone would make the tank a lot better in it's fully-upgraded form.
    I don't think you can really "fix" the armor on the top turret, the tumors are too big and I'd be afraid of T110E5 copula syndrome, where the "weakspots" troll both ways- that's just not fun regardless of which side you are on.
    Any buffs to this tank would be welcome, my hope is that WG takes things slow (and by that I mean minor changes until it's up to par instead of massive, UP-to-OP changes *cough Caer*). Knowing WG it'll be a bit before this tank sees any love.

    My third game in it. The gun is amazing. The package not so much. 100% lose rate so far.

    Rexxie got a reaction from Monkey in Rex & Ziddy's CoC - A Lewd New Years   
    Today I came back to play my first real session of WoT in about a year. The game still has some charm, I'm thinking of sticking around for a while to give the new toys that I've missed a try! My terrible tank fetish has sparked up too; I'm heading towards the 65t. The new CN TD line looks terrible too, but gosh darn am I a sucker for how pretty wedge TDs are.
    This has been the case for a long time, but one thing that really hit me today is how much less necessary a premium account has become. XP Boosters are really good and Wargaming likes to stuff hundreds down my throat, so I've been having a pretty smooth time playing with a standard account. I don't think I'd even think about playing this game again if the economy was as cutthroat as it was a few years ago.

    Rexxie reacted to Stiglic in "Missing" critical hits?   
    Modules have a certain amount of HP, and they only "get yellow" once a certain amount of that HP is depleted (half, I suppose?)
    I beileve its possible that the splash of your HE did damage the module, but not enough to "make it yellow" - you would thus get the "ding" of a crit, but not the yellow status?

    Sorta similar to how it was (maybe still is) possible to fail the missions where you need to survive a match with no damaged modules, even if nothing on your tank was yellow - as there could have been internal modules in "pre-yellow", but sub-100% state?

    Rexxie got a reaction from Felicius in Panther - A Misunderstood Beauty   
    No they don't, the Panther hits for 135 every 4.4 seconds, the Comet hits for 150 every 3.9 seconds, the Chi-Ri autoloads a 390 damage burst every 10 seconds, and a the T-43 punches for 180 every 5.4 seconds. The three of them have no issue with their raw damage output; the Panther is the clear loser in the firepower department over everything except the KV-13/T23E3/A-44. The KV-13 and A-44 are clearly superior platforms, while the T23E3 has pref MM. The Panther's DPM is almost perfectly average - just slightly below. Nothing outstanding.

    The thing is that even though this tank is unarguably the worst T10 in the game by vast margins, most players just want to see 183 players squirm because of how well many times they've had their jimmies rustled by HESH. I'm sure he's aware the tank sucks ass.
     
    Also IIRC it doesn't aim faster. Aimtime might be better but the bloom is much worse so it actually has to aim for a longer time to get the same accuracy. It's a HORRIBLE version of the pre-speed nerf/turret buff 183.

    Rexxie got a reaction from Monkey in 110   
    It's so sad to see how far this tank has fallen. Back when I played it (shortly after the line was released), the tank was exceptionally good. Nothing with that much armor still had mobility or anything resembling an accurate gun, the only hitch was that you had to be very mindful of your LFP. Now it's trash, and nothing has even changed about the tank itself. The pen is bad, the armor is somewhere between disappointing and unremarkable, and tanks like the Defender thrash it in every way imaginable.
    It's been this way for a while, but I suppose the release of the 111-5 has gotten people to take note.

    As promised, here's a side by side comparison. The sturmtiger is absurdly huge - even taller than the standard Tiger 1.
