Status Updates posted by MaxL_1023

  1. Streaming the French BB grind - and no I am not sailing the entire game in reverse. 



  2. Streaming the WOWS grind - its not as bad as WoT. 


    1. SaintLaurentius


      Little disappointed tbh, I was expecting the furious mouse wheel scroll from the past:gachi:

    2. MaxL_1023


      I now press F to pay respects.

  3. Streamed CW last night - tl;dr it does not go well when your caller leaves. Not to mention Des Moines players which go afk when the strat is layed out!

  4. I am streaming again - done for tonight but there are a few archived videos if anyone wants to see how much of a shitter@ships I am. Note this is WOWS, not WOT - if I played tanks again I would probably be driven insane due to derp guns. 

    1. nabucodonsor


      Trust me compared to the other shit WG  has been pulling out derp guns are fine. Atm I prefer facing 3 Type 5s than 3 268v4. The  257 while not OP requires more effort to pen SIDEWAYS than frontally and when you see people bouncing off it like morons, even if they have a pen indicator, you brain really starts to hurt.

      And finally you have average retard Vladimir telling us that if they buffed the Leo's handling it would be OP but not a tank with almost gold proof armour with better mobility than a russian medium. And let us ignore of how fucking stupid the 430U and 705A lines are.

    2. Darvek


      The 430U and 705 can be defeated. They're tuned a little high, but they're just another tank that you can defeat in the normal way. The 268 4, that's just a monstrosity. You simply can't pen it in the front, unless you're a gold-spamming JPE. If it moved like an E3 or a badger you might accept the god tier frontal armor. But it moves faster than a 140. It rams better than an E50M. And it has an acceptable T10 TD gun. Not the best gun in tier, but the platform is simply absurd.

      when I received the twitch notification I was expecting tanks. then I got sad

  5. There were 2 solutions to unicum platoons - skill segregated MM or 3-5-7. It's obvious which one was easier, and why something needed to be done. I would probably still be playing if skill MM was introduced - WR and WN8 ( and padding) would be out the window. Instead, there would have been one overarching win-related metric which determined who you played with (and against). Stat-pad pressure would be mostly gone and true competitive play would ensue. 

    Sadly, it didn't happen.

      Before less campy? have you forgotten when the TDs could autopen you from 400mts for +900 dmg? and when you could find even 5 arties per side? Meta was way more campier before, but what you gonna do agaisnt other purples? you know the most effective way to win it's trading HP without losing it, sniping it's so far the most effective way. Go 1v1 against another purple in close quarter combat,  and even if you win i can assure you will take at least 2 or 3 hit from him, and then comes another one who takes you out, and somebody takes him out too. What would you do instead? Not taking hits, right?, Now when you have +10 players with the same mentality what would you expect? Coordinated actions are not common in pubs even unless you are platooning, which clearly pads WR but this proves nothing if you are playing with some other players at your same lvl not truly showing how good by yourself you are.


    3. Assassin7


      To be fair, chaisniping every game isnt always the answer. Learning to be agressive and effectively trade in brawls is a massive part of being good, or you just end up like those TOTEM players that do nothing except red line snipe and do nothing to help win and just farm damage. 

      But yeah, the game is way less campy as a whole than it was 3 years ago. WG dealt with that by removing most of the bush cover on all the maps and making them all corridors. And paris. 

    4. mati_14


      I think it's clear that i'm not talking about the actual random battles, where pubbies bounce half of the rounds they hit or you have two yellow Mauses facing each other while not penning a single shot. I'm comparing ranked meta vs a skill mm pubs meta, where both would be flooded with purples punishing every try of aggression during the early game or any mistake during the battle. It might be the case that some shitters even start to play more arty because of the skill mm, just like in ranked battles.


  6. Now starting to play World of Warships - wondering why the iconic HMS Dreadnought isn't in the game. Come on WG, you have the Nassau, at least put it in as a premium or something!

    1. HowitzerBlitzer


      Been debated many times already... It's not fit for the regular line given its history, and armament. 

      It'll come out a premium when they feel it'll sell best.

      Dreadnought is one of the most historically significant ships of all time. There is no way that WG wouldn't turn it into a cash grab. Given that it will be a tier 3 I can live with this since low tier prems are pretty cheap.

    3. Mnemon


      Don't worry, it'll be a premium. Probably 20 dollar tier 3 (lol?) or something to capitalize on the ship's significance. You know they would milk that name.

  7. Potential Solution to the Russian DaddyTanker Problem: Use WR as an account filter - only use players in the x-y% range to get expected values. Worth a look?

    1. peregrine


      imho, yes.

      The whole population bias thing has to be analyzed going forward.

    2. spencer


      How bout the german wehraboo problem or the MURCA problem?

    3. spencer


      Also the regressions use data from VBAddict which has very few russian users.

  8. Regarding WN8 Expected Values: Trust me, it's Oompa-Loompas.

  9. Taking a break from Tanks to play HW:R. When I dreamed I was a Taiidan HC shooting ion beams at an E-100 on Himmelsdorf I knew I couldn't handle both games at once.

  10. Cool People are Fucking Models at Midnight. I am Fucking Modelling at Midnight. A small but statistically significant difference.

  11. Never try to run one of Gryphon's R scripts. Need a second Hard Drive for the required R packages.

    1. TheMarine0341



      I hated using R.

  12. I am beginning to wonder if it is even possible to directly model win rate vs statistics. Need more R skillz.

  13. I can finally play decent tanks - finished the 183 on-track. Tortoise is not what it used to be - what little armor it had is negated by APCR/HEAT.

      Doesn't have the deeps though

    4. Shifty_101st


      Conq with food is decent. You need BIA and Vents to make it really good DPM wise. But I will still take a conqueror over a conway in a mid range, to close range 2nd line fight. The conway is just to papery

  14. When driving a Tortoise Win Rate is luck. 6 straight losses where my team was dead before I could get to the battle.

      Stop yelling at your platoonmates :P

    3. Cunicularius


      I'll save you, senpai!

      In a few hours. :3



      Had you in one game on Prok Encounter team was pretty shit.

  15. I told an enemy JPE he had the situational awareness of Schrodinger's Cat. I flanked him in my Tortoise.

    1. Gashtag


      maybe I'm prone to laughter right now but that made me almost piss myself hahahaha

    2. Medjed


      kekekeke that was funny indeed xDDD

    3. FreddBoy


      Literally clash of the titans. Like, how the FUCK do you not notice 80+ tonnes of steel trundling around your tank?!

  16. You would think that when I (Mr. YOLO DERP IN A WAFFLE) tell you to flex to defend base you would flex to defend base, instead of sitting for 2 minutes waiting for a T-54 to peek around a rock 350m away.

      Use the 150 cm

    3. MaxL_1023


      Special gun from Warpack+

    4. Masterpupil2


      ayyy there's the old platoon-shit-talking MaxL we all have gotten to know!

  17. Does capping in a heavy make sense on Mali when they have a scout and arty alive?

      Fuck that was my LTTB... And I was wondering why you got off cap initially.

    3. MaxL_1023


      I thought my plat mate would come with me. 2 of us at close range would have wrecked the side.

    4. yolorush


      No you talked so much shit I pretty much told you I was done with you. In the past one could last maybe 10 games with you. Nowadays its down to 2. You need to check your fucking rage. Its getting sad.

  18. My god, I submit my guide outline for review so someone can see if my formatting makes sense and they publish it without reading it.

      Solono has a lot going on recently IRL. Forgive him any oversights like this.

    3. Luna


      Oh wow. I was wondering why it seemed unnaturally bad.

    4. MaxL_1023


      Well can he at least revert the publish? I can't even work on it now.

  19. It's nice playing with Kewei in my T-54 - he actually shoots the tanks I distract. Average random teammates ram me out of my cover and get me killed.

    1. Das_Schlippo


      Playing with Kewei must be like playing with Jesus.

    2. MaxL_1023


      He is the hammer and I am the anvil.

    3. Medjed


      so you like being slammed by Kiwi Kappa

  20. My guide was too big for FTR - split into 2 parts nonsensically and space between paragraphs gone. RIP Readability.

      So when do we start getting good content on Wotlabs? :^) f

    3. TheEmptyLord


      You are doing a great job.

  21. I can't get platoon mates anymore, and I often am not even on TS to sperg at them.

      I never play though.

      Ill toon with you max. Hit me with an invite if you're lonely.

    4. _Assad


      Your neckbeard gets kn the way of my wn8

  22. Streaming Cancer

  23. There is no point in playing light tanks.

    1. waga100


      padding wn8 hue

    2. _Assad


      Only to get the arty missions m8

    3. mereelskirata


      The only LT's I play are the 1390 and the M41, to get the missions, and they are fun.

  24. Message to all recruiters: Your clan is shit. I don't even need to look at it.

  25. Why is it that people just don't get the joke when it comes to arty hate? It is a running gag, nothing more. We probably attract more members because of it than lose.
