    Zinn reacted to Nope in [BRAH] It's NOT just a game, brah   
    BRAH - It's NOT just a game, brah!
    Now with added boxes, get yours today!

     
     
    BRAH is an international clan with mature and skilled players that are active in SH, Advances and in random battles. 
    We're a bunch of adult players with varied gaming backgrounds. Our community is large and span over several games, f.ex. PoE and PUBG.
     
    Every day at 21.00 CEST we have Advances, ensuring us to keep those level 10 credit bonuses going.
    We have a few very good FCs that lead tier 10 battles. Anyone is free to start a tier 6/8 detachment.
    We are not playing CW, nor will we ever do it regularly, but we play all campaigns. Last tier 10 campaign everyone who put in an effort got a tank. 
     
    Requirements:
    - Mature and relaxed, up for some friendly banter and still keeping focus on the battle at hand.
    - Teamplay experience and relatively high activity.
    - Recent stats that show that you understand the game, inside the light purple area. Overall stats are less important, but will be assessed too.
    - Be able to communicate in basic English.
     
    All applicants will be tested in teamplay, and all our members are expected to join when an invite for an Advance is sent out(around 2045 CEST). If you can only play for that first game, join anyway! Someone can replace you for the next battle. This does not mean that you have to be here every day, but when you are online you are expected to show up. 
     
    We're always on the lookout for new FCs, and we will not assess FCs the same way as we would with a player. 
     
    If you have questions, please contact one of our Officers or Recruiters:
    EpicFale, fffnord, Trevez, N1nja_Pingu, ffox, MartinNL, Gasgadur
     
    Discord: https://discord.gg/YUyDhqh
    Feel free to join our Discord, even if you just want to hang out and play games with us! 
     
     
     
    (my most sincere apologies to all the recruiters that suddenly started hanging in our old topic. We're not dead. On the contrary.)

    Zinn reacted to Valachio in The Unicum Edition Watch by Valachio   
    I came, I promised, and I'm here to deliver.  It is here, ladies and gentlemen.  The Unicum Edition (which I'll refer to as TUD from now on), by yours truly, Valachio.
    Your win rate is guaranteed to go up by at least 25% if you wear TUD while playing tanks.  As long as you remember to chant the song of TUD before each match and have Warpacks v3.104 installed.
    Like seriously.  No joke.  The only thing you have to worry about is having too high of a win rate, in which case you'll be XVM-sniped by arty every game, and lose enjoyment in the game.  But hey, at least you'll quit with an 80% win rate, and have many stories to tell your great-grand children.
    So....  are you ready?  Are you ready to live the miserable 75% win rate life that I have been living?  If you are, then it's time for you to pick up a TUD.
    Picture Album
    Website Link
    Okay enough with the false marketing.  I'm actually quite excited to present this creation to you guys.  TUD is basically an upgraded version of the Pantiam collection.  It features purple watch hands, 'Unicum Edition' printed on the dial in purple, and a purple Italian calfskin strap.  The main upgrade that will come with TUD is instead of having a flat sapphire crystal, it will utilise a double-domed sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating.  It will also come with a deployment clasp instead of a regular tang buckle, which helps greatly with maintaining the strap.
    So how will this work?  As much as I want to provide a unique product to the Wotlabs community, I am also running a business.  So I'll be honest and say that I need to turn a profit with this little venture.  Before I order TUD in bulk, I'm going to be running a little crowdfunding campaign here on Wotlabs.  If enough people make a pre-order, I'll be ordering a production run.  If the interest is not high enough, then I'll delay this venture indefinitely until a point where I'm comfortable making an investment in a production run of TUD where there is a possibility that my business will lose money.  In the end, I do want to make TUD a reality for people who want it, even if the time and effort I put into it is not worth the return on investment.  Why?  Because I love tanks, it has been a central part of my mid-teen years.  The experiences I experienced playing this game, the people I met, and the WGLNA seasons I played has greatly shaped the man I am today.  Melodramatic, I know, but it's true.
    I'm looking at $199 USD for the retail price.  Pre-orders will come with a slight discount.
    I'm going to run the poll for a bit to gauge the interest from the community.  Once I'm ready, I'll start taking pre-orders on the website.
    Any questions please ask!
    Also would anyone be interested in purchasing the sample of the TUD?  It is the watch you see in the picture album.
    NEW AUTOMATIC COLLECTION BOIS!!

    Home in Scotland atm, my father passed away suddenly on Thursday due to a brain hemorrhage. He would have been 61 later this month.  Safe to say I've not taken it well. Planning to be back in Poland in about 2 weeks, I feel pretty broken/wrecked and it will take a while for me to be back to normal.

    Zinn reacted to spencer in NA Top 50 DPG tables for every tank. 150 battles and above only.   
    Hey.
    As part of an exercise for learning some basic webdev stuff I'm very slowly creating a dpg tracking site using dpg/frag data for every player on NA via the WoT api. I have some other ideas that I'd like to implement but for now I have a simple top 50 list for (almost?) every tank based on dpg. I've only included entries with more than 150 battles. The number itself is arbitrary but it's more statistically significant than a lower number (duh) while still keeping it somewhat accessible.
    You can download the website in its current state here: http://www.mediafire.com/download/fdsuu792r9f67p3/website.zip
    index.html is the home page.
    Site is now live at www.dpgwhores.com
    I'd like feedback on the website design and methodology. So far it's only been tested on the latest version of Chrome so it might be horribly broken on other browsers. I'd rather not have a discussion about the best way to measure skill; I've chosen to only track hard stats, so it is what it is.
    Cheers~

    Hey guys!
    The WoTLabs Store is now also localized in Europe, that means all your favorite tank swag is closer to you so you can enjoy faster and cheaper shipping, all priced in Euro.
    You can access the EU WoTLabs Store clicking here.

    Zinn reacted to WaterWar in New head of PP and goodbye   
    Hello all.
    It is time for me to say goodbye and move on. I have enjoyed three wonderful years with WoT. I have enjoyed almost as much time here on these forums. I have learned so much from these forums and I think it is one of the, if not the best, gaming community I have been part of. I have however lost my finale bit of interest in the game, and I have decided to finally move on. I spend almost no time on these forums anymore, and therefore I will also be stepping down as head of the PPs. @PityFool is taking over as head of PP, as he knows the ins and out of these forums and everyone loves him.
    I would also like to publicly say that Kolni becoming lead Badmin has nothing to do with this. I didn't even realise he was until just before I began writing this post. I made the decision a week ago while on holiday.
    I will still hang around these forums from time to time and the occasional relaxing in-game, but I can't promise any activity in any way. I am moving on to playing Arma 3, CSGO and a bunch of other games that are not WoT. If people want to hang out in those games with me, feel free to PM me and we can sort something out

    Sorry to say, but I am leaving 1-UP as an extension of the post above. I simply cannot be active enough to want to be part of a clan, so I wish you all the best. If any of you want to play other games with me, feel free to PM me and we can swap steam IDs and whatnot. :3

    Zinn got a reaction from _Assad in Rebuild or canibalize?   
    Unless you want to do 4k gaming or 1440p at 144hz, you don't really need a 1080: The 1070 will do just fine on all current games at max. I'd recommend getting a bigger SSD for gaming purposes, you could still keep the others for data storage. Even with my old ass setup, it's long since been the HDD that slows down my loading process. CPU is good enough for current games, i7s and above are mostly if you're already a hardcore tech guy or do some serious work like long video rendering at high reolutions, 3D work etc.
    Basically, get a GPU upgrade and maybe a bigger SSD if you do a fair bit of gaming outside WoT and you'll be fine as far as I know.

    Skara, you are literally repeating the entire god damn point of why prem shells are broken as shit. It negates the fucking game mechanics. No longer can he slightly adjust his angle and force a bounce, no longer do you need careful aim and no longer will you suffer from penetration RNG. You are constantly reinforcing everything I say and somehow argue that it doesn't break the game. Once you get over firing AP first and just start tearing asses up, you will be uni even if you don't improve a single bit as a player.
    My entire progress to go from ~2300 WN8 to 2500+ was simply changing my prem shell loadout from 5 to 10 and actually firing them whenever I was in trouble, instead of stubbornly playing by "the rules". I didn't improve one bit as a player, I just found a way to force the enemy off me and it works. Recent WR went up almost 2% (I've been 60 overall forever), I had many more 3k+ sessions and all it did was drain my wallet a little - and not even that much on decent tanks. Try playing an AP Ehundo, an AP T-54, an AP T54E1 and then do the HEAT/APCR equivalent, followed by checking your session stats. If they were any better than your pure AP runs, the game has a balance issue. It doesn't really matter if you care about it or not, it's about creating a good strong PvP environment. Why do you think everyone laughs at WoT e-sports?
    I rarely pull the stats card but this is some silly shit coming from someone with an average tier of 6, 980 recent WN8 and 50 recent WR. At the one tier that really matters - that would be tier 10 - many mediums have higher or same pen as heavies. Many of them also have the same or nearly the same alpha (390 vs 400-440), close enough to where RNG makes them quite similar for the average player who only gets to pen 3-4 times in battle.
    And of course it negates armor: T-54 - 201/219 pen vs 330, Object 430 II - 219 vs 330, E-50 - 220 vs 270, Leo PTA - 268 vs 330, M46 Patton - 218 vs 265, T54E1 - 210 vs 255, Lorraine - 233 vs 263, AMX 30 1er - 260 vs 320, WZ 120 - 249 vs 340, Type 61 - 258 vs 330, T-50 - 248 vs 310. And these are just the tier 9s, before they get massive buffs to all of their other gun stats at tier 10. There are a couple of tanks with good standard pen but most definitely fall into the "bounce if the enemy heavy angles even a little bit at range" category as far as AP is concerned. I obviously skipped the brits due to HESH as their special flavor.
    All that happens at tier 10 is that the pen + DPM imbalance gets even worse for the poor heavies (and just destroys most non-10 heavies even harder). A medium tank has more than enough tools to deal with whatever a heavy or TD can throw at it due to generally smaller profiles and higher mobility. Some even have armor on par or better than heavies if angled or hull-down in the correct positions. Great players pick mediums for these very reasons and pretty much every single player at the top of the WN8 and WR solo stats spams food and prem shells to maximize their stats. I don't have a problem with people exploiting the game mechanics but I sure as shit have a problem with WG pretending to go full e-sports while maintaining shit like P2W ammo and 25% RNG.
    Arguing about tomatoes instead of what the best players can do is plainly doing it wrong. In a PvP game you play to be your best, going up against the best and comparing each other. You don't play to compare yourself to the bottom of the barrel.
