  1. I've had it on my Kindle for awhile and I do enjoy it quite a bit
  2. I tried it finally after the suckasscraptasticpingspikes/lag I've had all week on the NA server (from Nebraska of all places) and the difference in ping from NA to EU is about 40 (90 NA to 132 EU) and the EU is more stable in the early going. The founders pack transferred just fine. Only thing I bought that didn't transfer was some gold I bought through the premium shop for NA server. Not sure if its supposed to roll over too or not? edit: its not supposed to roll over
  3. Helped carry in a tier 4 arty of all things.... other three components of the "team" pretty much died on initial contact... Kept the TD covered and we worked well together to pull it out.
  4. I haven't been playing all that long but I can say the server is far from dead. I'm still learning and mostly playing PVE and in that mode I never have problems with waiting in queue at pretty much anytime of the day.
  5. This was exactly the question I came here looking to find out about. Did you ever get a chance to test this out?
  6. definitely subscribing. Thanks for doing these
  7. Turned 51 less than a month ago and I've not played as much as many of you but here's mine The 65% W/R in cruisers is by far my highest per class and cruisers are my most played ships. My IJN cruisers are driving the W/R atm as I had a 90% in Tenryu (10 games) 85% in Furutaka (13g) 75% so far in Aoba and Kuma was 50% with better overall damage numbers than either Furutaka or Aoba. CVs have my highest damage numbers at 37k but CA and BB at 33k and DD at 29K aren't far back KDR is cruisers again at 1.19 with DDs chipping in at 1.14. I want to like US DDs but the Farragut is killing me with 4 out of 14 and 19k avg damage. Thinking about trying to level with the Nicholas until I get exp to unlock the Benson which seemingly gives camo comparable to Nicholas; unlike the highly visible Farragut and Mahan.. I didn't want to pref IJN DDs and CAs but the Isokaze (42k avg damage) and Minekaze (47K avg damage so far) has my wondering if my US DD grind should come to an early end? Just got the Cleveland and its different.... I'll give you that. I don't read good things on US CAs up tier either. Seriously thinking about just jumping whole hog into IJN CAs and DDs based on my early numbers so far. Glad this thread was put up as it got me thinking and doing the self critical stuff I probably need to. edit: Deusmortis love the siggie line! I may want to "borrow" it
  8. I've been using the HP recovery one and the zulu. Kind of fun when the enemy BB thinks you're almost dead and then ...lolnope...
  9. Thought about that after the fact so I'm glad you raised it. With WoT and WoWS going that direction, you can still manually override it by editing the launcher file. I don't know enough about the my.com setup to know if that's possible without crashing the whole download. Got a few days yet to decide whether to give this thing another go. I like that apparently AW isn't moddable. That was one of the appeals of WT for me back in the day before I completely wrote gayjin off.
  10. Coincidence on the phone call? yeah probably. Was the AW launcher trying to connect to IPs flagged by malwarebytes? Yes, repeatedly so.
  11. Oh I've already followed that advice which is why this thread was originally put up. AW is apparently a good game with enough respect and supporters (including you apparently) to have its own area here among other places I know quite well. I felt like it was a safe bet. Malwarebytes has a good rep and so when it acts up, I notice. I double checked and found what I needed to. Apparently AW works for a lot of folks but I'm not going to be one of them
  12. Thanks folks! downloading now We'll see how it goes stopped the download after malwarebytes went nuts on the attempted p2p connections etc. Checked with MB forum and they verified that these are not false positives. Got a phone call from Mumbai India within minutes of my blocking those connections asking how my "network" was doing and if there were "any problems" .... idiot claimed to be from "windows".... yeah...lolnope.... totally digging deep into my system now to clean out any crap left behind. Coincidence? ... maybe/probably but I'm not chancing it
  13. I live in the midwest (Nebraska) and am considering installing this. Before I waste a lot of time, I had a few questions. The biggest problems I've had with WoT center around lag/ping spikes and arty trash. Some of the connectivity is my ISP but some isn't and thats why I started this thread. For players who live in the CST US; I'd appreciate your insights on any stability, ping/lag/latency issues in AW v WoT if any? I've got 9600+ games in WoT and am enjoying WoWS but I well remember that 7,000+ of my WoT games were played on a computer where a 14 fps was a good thing and below 500 ping was great. Things have changed as my fps runs into the 70s and my connection and lag are usually 59-120 or so (with a W/R bump from 46 to 50+ over time) but things can still get dicey and I'm sensitive to that. I started off playing arty due to my shitty connection and old computer but now I absolutely despise it and I hate getting one shot shat upon. I know AW has arty and the new player guide in this section gave some examples of why its different but I'd like to hear some 1st hand perceptions from other fellow WoT arty haters how things are in AW? Thanks
  14. Thank you both! I appreciate the perspectives and I'm bookmarking and going through that changelog
  15. With the premium sales just announced, I may look at getting a tier 8 medium. I've got tier 8+ already in US med, UK med, e50. I've got below that and could use a premium medium as a trainer for both RU lines(5 and 7 tier), the German Leo line(tier 6) the Japanese line(tier 5) and Chinese line(tier 6). Ideas, suggestions, thoughts?
  16. Been out of pocket game wise for awhile and also been spending what little spare time I've got on other games (WoWS and even a dabble with WoWP) but I played a few rounds of WoT last night and I've a few questions: 1. Did the garbage men go on strike again? Arty trash everywhere.... Was going to restart a heavy grind or two based on what I'm seeing of map reworks but the arty spam has me wondering on that? 2. Some mediums seem to be reworked, buffed etc. Are they still the best alternative for folks who can't stand arty spam and if so, which lines would you focus on from tier 6+ in light of changes or upcoming changes? edit: I notice the RU meds seem to still be the default flavor of choice but I gather there are some changes of late for those who will mostly be playing pubs with meds. edit2: I haven't had arty in my garage since I sold what I had rebought for those damnable "missions" when they first came out as its just not worth it. 3. How viable are TDs these days? Life seems to be rougher on the TD side since I last played. I know I'm not necessarily a good player but I had been improving, got into green in all categories finally (after 9500+ games) and hope to continue that progress either in 6-8 or 4-7 as I basically take a few and relearn. Thanks for any tips/suggestions etc on current state of the game
  17. Another possible improvement I'd like to suggest would be a WTR rating by ship class for each player; at least for your overall numbers if doing so for the dailies doesn't work.
  18. Using my Warspite in ranked and really feel like I'm able to contribute. Love that ship
  19. so some shitlord reroll with 231 games in the Tiger I as most played and highest tier proceeds to tell me to stfu when I'm suggesting that the best places to pen the AT15a are the cupola and area around the gun....lel

  20. There are some pretty good training clans out there that would likely take you in. In many cases the only rule is that you be willing to work and play well with others.
