  1. I wanted to finish grinding Ranked but just got steamrolled 13 games in a row, no chevron lost but fuck me ggs.

  2. 3 vs 9 win, totally not cause we had a chief

  3. Why in the fuck are 50% of Chieftains droolers?

      I just hate that even though half of the chiefs are driven by 50%ers they still are stupidly dangerous. I wish there was even a tiny shred of thought put into the abominations they stick in this game.

      I quit tier 10s and pretty much WoT because suddenly there are tanks that money can't buy and bots can't grind

      @NightmareMk9 how can a retard clan get a Chief? I had a "I'm a 50% and 55% recent" retard with 1490 dpg in his t10 heavies tell me he earned one himself and I'm afraid that's true.

  4. What's the bond shop consensus on the forum? 121B looks fairly okay, FV is historically a turd and M60 only exists in code form. Save for possible 907 in future or risk getting the tier 10s replaced by something whack like KV-4K instead.

    1. hazzgar

      hazzgar

      I'd go M60 just because you probably play more US meds than China meds plus a fast high dpm patton is nice

      If you have the ability to grind up again, the 121B is actually fun to play if you enjoy playing a russian medium without armour but with an actually good gun. 350 HEAT is really fucking OP.

  5. Wtf is this role xp shit, some dumb fucks shooting a 430U turret trumps 3k more QCQ damage by 25%?

  7. Struggling to keep 430 close to 3k, I feel so gimped coming off 100 battles of HEAT-54. Tank is awesome but I keep finding myself feeling castrated in some situations where the HEAT-54 would be going to town. Anyone recommend ways to work around the pen in tier X games compared to 54/55a gameplay?

      Mannerheim line I think

  11. Tanks should have an equal price choice of APCR/HEAT. Get rid of premium APCR because that just invites sprem. HEAT has genuine drawbacks + some pen/velocity nerfs make switching between rounds more important. That's how it should be imo instead of keeping the concept of premium ammo. For instance Chieftain, but 300 pen HEAT not APCR. Already more palatable. Thoughts?

      The 30 euro battle pass pays for the hot tub and coke, not the moonbase itself.

      I think tier 10 should be the only tier without sprem, you're top dog you do not need to be spamming gold
      But if they do this then they need to bring back weakspots in tanks instead of "lol just flank them"

      Yeah, I just did that 3-mark in honor of how much I used to enjoy the tank before the LT rebalance.
      Man was that a painful tank to 3-mark.

      It has nothing going for it anymore. It used to have the quirky autoloader which made it fun. Nowadays it's just an awkward tank with a really derpy gun.

      How the mighty have fallen.

  13. Anyone from math corner, how will 1.9 affect WN8? Will it take time to normalize? What happens to old stats? Is WN8 dead?

      because all the light tanks tiering, balancing, and all that got completely flipped on its head. T6-7-8 lights legacy stats were all leagues above what the typical expected for those tanks would be now, so basically anyone with any number of battles in light tanks pre change created a major innacuracy in WN8. 

      Also I think that was the same patch that 3-5-7 was introduced, so the general HP pool of battles shrunk which would have lowered general expected DPGs across the board.

      and I think there were a few other things around that time that also affected it. 

    3. Ham_

      Ham_

      Not strictly true, the lights I had, LTTB and 13 90, both got moved up a tier, and the DPGs went up too. WN8 is close to the same. Just an example of not benefiting. 

    4. MagicalFlyingFox

      MagicalFlyingFox

      WN8 has somehow become even more pointless than it was before. 

       

      Changes wont make a difference in tiers 9 and 10 though which are more important IMHO. Even tier 8 wont change much if at all. 

  14. Skill4Ltu prefers the T-62a gun for the T-54, he argues the lack of gun handling on the 140 gun, means you rely too much on heavy sprem. Gonna try it when I get the XP later today, bounty rammer should make up some of the difference. I'm hopeful.

      @kolni I have given the other gun a fair try. 3k dpg 5k combined for 8 games. The AP really helped with perma tracking some tanks but I felt the frustration at the times where I could let dpm take over, the extra kick wasn't there which made some games closer than necessary. The gun could trade 2 for 1 with most tanks, how ever you get caught out trying to retreat more frequently which is extra hp loss. Big no no in my eyes. I switched to the dpg gun and with the help of some bond equipment and fem crew, the tank is just so much more of a beast. I would have to add, that food is mandatory. That's probably a no brainer for you but hell someone might just read this. I did agree with you previously, but was determined to make my own conclusions. So here we are.

      To add to that, my assisting damage average was 1,981 over that period, skill was hovering around 1000 when marking on RU. If that indicates I'm playing more aggressively, probably, it's in line with the fact I'm getting more benefit from the dpm gun.

    4. echo9835

      echo9835

      @Ham_ Yeah, the DPM gun is better with a full spendy loadout. I used the gun handling gun because I am cheap.

  15. After 6 years of owning an ISU and now 704... I finally have a BL-10 lmao

    Also 2.7k dpg only gets 2.4k wn8,  that must be the highest expected damage for a tier 9 tech tree tank. Edit: It is the highest tier 9 expected damage, period. AE Phase 1 included.

    1. lavawing

      704 numbers are old because people spammed games in it during 8.5 ish when bushwank was THE way to play. also 286 pen used to be godmode which it isn't now.

      just 2.2k would be pretty good these days

      As an aging lover of British comedy all I can say is Blackadder is a real treasure.  All should try it.

      The last season made for some thoughtful entertainment, but on the whole people take it much too seriously. The fact is that the Great War was nowhere as badly run as depicted, but at this point there will be no setting the record straight: it was Butcher Haig, saved from a pygmy with a sharpened mango, who sent our boys to die.

      Now, there were people, like Monash, who might have conceivably done a better job, but Haig was neither a brute nor an imbecile. He was a product of contemporary thinking, neither better nor worse than most of his contemporaries.

      But here I am taking it too seriously.

      A tad...

      But altogether valid as criticism  of military pop history.  

      Still, it's supposed to be a comedy. Next someone will complain that Queen Elizabeth was not accurately portrayed in the second season and there is no historical proof that she employed a handmaid with an udder fixation.

  20. Full sprem in arty just straight up boosts your DPG by a quarter, its a complete joke.

  21. Anyone else have a cursed 94% tank?

    Edit: hehe

      did u find more success as a glorified medium with boom alfa or as follow-up assault tank? i found it uncomfortable after the changes :(

    2. Ham_

      You can use your speed to avoid the shitty spam fest heavy tank lines like in Minsk and go down the med routes, no matter where you go you are a peek and boom tank, so just bait teammates, reverse sidescrape or hulldown and start racking up damage. Frontal sidescraping is the quick and easy option against scrubs but good players can hit the pike so be wary.

      For maaaany battles it was my elc even 90 but i tried to 3 mark it on min settings and 16-20fps so yeah. 

  22. Finally got it.. 7k blocked in Mutant, what a fucking vehicle

    Edit: Game straight after got HT15 done in IS-7 with 7k blocked again lmao

  23. The amount of after battle flack I'm getting for parking on bridges n shit in pursuit of HT12 is making my day

  24. What are the meta HT12 tanks? Thinking about trying OI just because low tier, everything else seems worthless or hp is so high that the damage blocked needed is ridiculous

      Fucking easy mode, trust me. I bought one and completed HT12 and HT15 within 10 battles.
