    MagicalFlyingFox reacted to Never in Dark theme for the Forum is (finally) here!   
    Hello!
    As has probably been requested about a billion times in the past, the forum is finally getting a dark theme! You can select it by scrolling to the very bottom of the page, clicking on "Theme" and selecting DarkLabs.
    I'm considering this a very beta version of the skin, and there might be several things that will require tweaks along the way. Let me know if you find something off and I'll get it fixed ASAP.
    Cheers!

    Its just a method of quickly determining skill level, with flaws just like win rate. If you combine WN8 with Win rate and average tier, you can generally figure out a person's skill level with high enough accuracy without actually looking at their individual stats in tanks.
     
    If you want to improve your game, you need do what it takes to win games. It just so happens that most of the time, you need to do damage to win games.

    Blaming how the statistics work isn't going to make you a better player.
     
    Doing what it takes to win and learning how to react to what happens in the game will.
     
    If you are coming here to have a whinge about how X metric doesnt transfer well into Y statistic, this isn't the forum for you.
     
    If you want to learn what you are doing wrong and what you can improve on, there is plenty of content here and enough posters here that can guide you to what you can and should be doing or looking out for to play better.

    MagicalFlyingFox got a reaction from Madner Kami in Sandobox, HE 3.0, what people think?   
    I can't wait for wargaming to make vast changes to the game so i can uninstall for good.
     
     
     
    Okay, so this means they do away with the whole splash mechanic, which means you cannot shoot under a tank to do damage or the track from under them to do damage.
    This basically dumbs down the game even more.

    MagicalFlyingFox got a reaction from sohojacques in Best Tier VI Heavy Tank? VK 36.01 (H)   
    The tier 6 is a waste of space when I played it. 122mms, 90mms and 8.8cm guns ate it up all day because angling = getting penned in the side.
    Gun was trash if not firing gold. Then it was 'usable.'
     
    The Black Prince however, when platooned with other black princes could mow down shit with absurd volume of fire and hitpoints.
    You could even bounce 122mm shells and actually hull down semi decently against same tier. Against same tier opponents, you could actually do shit. Against higher tier opponents, you're quite fucked unless you double-team him whereas the church 7 cant even do that effectively. The only thing you can pick with 2 of them are other tier 6s.
     
    I'm not saying its good but tier for tier its not even close.

    MagicalFlyingFox reacted to Never in 2021 Development Roadmap   
    Hello!

    As some of you may know, WoTLabs has been in "maintenance mode" for some time now, with new features few and far between. As we start 2021, I'm returning to active development!
    This is what you can expect in 2021:
    Session Statistics
    The first feature that is being developed is a section where players can see all the statistics for any given session. This is accomplished by taking a snapshot of your account's stats at the moment you finish a tanking session (clarification: the player must request a stats update manually by visiting their stats page) and comparing it with the previous snapshot. Due to server capacity, currently an account can only have its statistics updated once per hour. Patrons will also be able to bypass this and request an update for their statistics at any time.
    ETA: Q3 2021
    Full Rankings
    WoTLabs will soon have a page with full rankings for the server, which will be sortable by several criteria (Win Rate, WN8, battle count...). There will be rankings for the server overall, as well as for each tank.
    ETA: Q3 2021
    Improved API
    For those who wish to use WoTLabs data for their own apps, the current API will be expanded with periodic stats and individual tank stats, as well as a larger daily limit on calls. Due to the impact on the server, access to this API will be available at a $5 / month Developer tier on Patreon.
    ETA: Q4 2021
    Detailed Server Tank Stats
    In addition to the table of average statistics, each tank in the game with also gain a full page of server statistics with insightful graphs showing how players perform with any given tank.
    ETA: Q4 2021
    Detailed Player Tank Stats
    You will be able to see more detailed statistics about your tanks, as well as comparisons with the server average and different percentile brackets.  As a provisional feature which may be discarded along the line depending on how well it works with current server constraints, you will also be able to see  graphs and periodic stats for each individual tank, much like your main stats page currently shows for your account. Keep in mind that tank data is purged every 6 months or so, therefore records will only go back so far.
    ETA: Q4 2021
    These are all the new features that are in planning and/or development at the moment. This list, along with the ETAs, may be updated along the year!
    Cheers!

    The lorry is a 50 100 with a more manageable clip size and more speed in exchange for pretty much the same effective armour - not much.
    The somua is also a 50 100 but with a slightly more manageable clip with a fuck better reload and actual armour in exchange for a bit of speed... which helps gun handling
     
    50 100 is just in a shit spot. It takes a while to realise you can't get away with a lot of things and there are other tanks that can do everything you can do but better.

    These kinda answers make me kinda wanna ddos the site and never look back so you assholes can move on with your lives.
    To the original poster...it used to be a good site but now its just filled with hateful people comparing epeens.  I would suggest just reading through old content on the forums as thats still useful and never typing a word on the forum or you'll be driven away like above.
      Theres still some good pointers from old threads but these fools are gonna drive away all the new users and related ad revenue relentlessly until people get tired of donating money to Never to pay for this site and it goes off the air.  I mean wtf guys even the WoW site this forum was based on wasnt this bad at the end and i would know i was a member of that one too.

    I played it pre equip changes (literally the patch before). Would swap vents for IRM so yeah, IRM/Vstab/Optics.
     
    Was decent. Spammed full gold in it.

    Generally played like a medium and magdumped 2-3 shots at a time. Permatracking is hilarious in it.
