  1. Been a while since I last played WoT, came back to find this garbage. Not amused. The Cockerill 90mm is listed as the upgrade for iether the Tier 8 or 9 British LT already. So it's not too new a gun. All WG needs to do is accept APDS ammunition which has very large angles needed for autobounce, less normalization than APCR, and of course very high velocity with very low pen drop. Scorpion with say a 4 second reload (3600 DPM on a 90mm gun) would be a roach at Tier 10. We could also get the COMRES 75 of 1968, with a three-shot autoloader on a 20pdr (which is a perfectly adequate gun for a tier X light tank as long as the DPM is high... or at least acceptable with mobility/camo extreme enough.) I'm quite sure the guy who tried to balance ye auld 183 at Tier 10 was being reasonable with the 12 round capacity. It's when you can fit LOL numbers of shells in a T71 that the nerfing of high tier lights gets dubious. The only possible Tier 10 tank I can imagine performing adequately with less than 1750 Standard DPM (as the Manticore has) is this one: If it takes 45 seconds to reload each shell into the progressive autoloader (historically it took about 15-20 seconds for the 2 loaders to muscle a shell and charge from the loading assist into the gun) and the inter-shot time is 20 seconds (historical as that's what they wanted out of the gun), then I have zero problems with under 1750 Standard DPM on paper. Even 1250 paper DPM would be fine (i.e. 60 second per shell into loading assist) It would be a wee bit overpowered in a poking exchange when it has friends covering it backing into cover between shots and baiting enemy fire for it. Otherwise it's easy meat for anyone loading HE. But as long as the Manticore only gets a 105mm, given its other characteristics, 2400+ DPM is required, as per all other Tier 10 lights that want to be good.
  2. More Tier 10 buffs, ugh. More proof that WG has no idea what it's actually doing and doesn't play the game.
  3. Trying to get the 20K bonus XP on this turd for this weekend event. Playing heavies is to pad out 5K+ slabs of damage each game Playing the mid-tier TDs in lines I have yet to grind out is 2K+ slabs. Tries to get last bits with SP I C: Goes at most 600 up per game. Perhaps I should not have come back to this game for the event. Oh well, at least it's a useful way to negative stat pad.
  4. Pfft... Silver pennable... so 240 after normalization i.e. total troll?
  5. By the time you finish turning around so you can poke without getting lol snapshotted while the hideous reverse speed is failing, or need the gun depression, the battle has often relocated already. 263 has enough armour to survive being spotted for a couple seconds if the worst should come to pass (and the worst ALWAYS comes to pass...).
  6. Given how badly the new physics shat on most vehicles? Yes, that is WG's way.
  7. Finally tried playing. Holy fuck they killed a lot of hull down spots and JT apparently gets tracked if you sneeze on it. Should have remembered the old rule of "play a med or heavium after a big patch"... EDIT: 13 90 now accelerates vastly slower and only gets up to 55 KPH instead of 60. Thus new physics are shit too. Yeah no that mission for an Italian T8 premium is too long to bother with considering all the crap 1.0 brought.
  8. You mean the average SCRUB camo rating. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shrubland "Shrubland, scrubland, scrub, brush, or bush..." Inb4 infracted for terribad puns.
  9. Back when I was grinding through this tank, it completely exceeded my expectations. Then again, it did it in the same sense Trump exceeded all my expectations to an astronomical degree by not managing to start a nuclear war yet. I expected a 0/10 tank, instead SP I C got that title and the Type 61 was at least a 3/10.
  10. Reinstalled, logged in, saw nothing significant had changed as far as I cared, no daily mission... logged out.
  11. Game will not update. Looks like I'll have to copy my old replays elsewhere and reinstall if they don't come up with an answer on the official forums relatively soon...
  12. Armor looks vaguely usable, wow! But that turret traverse slower than hull burns my eyes. And the EPIC MATH FAIL OF 700/60 = 12.5 WHAT THE HELL Gun looks usable except for elevation, but then again FRENCH... Good luck to those that play this
  13. A Siberian player: "Sir, I regret to inform you that I very much can Even, but this tank certainly cannot Even" https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Even_language
  14. No armour and that DPM burns my eyes. Minimum 3200 single-shot DPM and 2500 autoloader needed to be tolerable with that turret face armour and the even worse TURRET SLOWER THAN HULL WHAT IS THIS I DON'T EVEN. EDIT: Downvoters these days have no idea of how haggling works it seems. Unreasonable initial demands have been standard since the first barter of how many of your goats for how many of my sheep...
