    THE FEELS! Q~Q 

    For most of us, that was when fear turned into dispair.  Everyone who could took their bribes, or simply ran for their lives.  As everyone was running, I let my ship drift to a stop in space and watched the catastrophe unfold.  It was eye opening.  I saw alliancemate after alliancemate steal anything he could get his hands on and run for it.  I saw people backstab each other.  I saw people drop corp tag and immediately start hunting their former allies.  It was shameful.  It was sickening.  I watched as our proud alliance shattered into a mob of terrified, desperate pub trash robbing and killing each other for a chance to survive. 
    I came to realize I wasn't the only one sitting there.  In fact, there were dozens of us, stunned into inaction.  After a while, the mob left us, and we still sat there.  A long time, we just sat there and waited, no one saying anything.  Someone said the russians were spotted in the next system.  The remaining few looked at each other, and did nothing.  Then one guy moved to set up ambush position near the pipe.  The rest of us moved into place as well.  I don't really know why -- there was no great design or principle behind it.  Perhaps it was nothing more than habit.  
     
    If this were a proper story I would tell you how we stood like Leonidas, crowned in glory.  We did not.  There was no glory, just our faces smashed in the dirt.  I wish I could tell you we gave a heroic speech, and inspired everyone in the fight for freedom.  We did not.  We had no leaders, much less cause.  I wish I could tell you that we killed hundreds, nay, thousands of russians.  We did not -- they rolled over us like the tide.  Not a single russian died.  Hell, they didn't even hesitate.  I wish I could tell you anyone knew, or cared, that we stood and died on our land.  But that's not what happened.  It wasn't a fight at all -- the russians took everything from us, as we pathetically tried to resist.  But we did not yield, and we did not run.
     
    A few hours later, the Russians sacked Doril, the last remaining AAA outpost.  We now had no land, anywhere, at all.  No bases, no infrastructure, no leaders, no plan, nothing.  We had no fuel, no ammunition, no replacement ships, no allies, no force in reserve, nothing.  We fist bumped our romanian niggas and other friends one last time, and told them to go and do what they could to survive.  We would remember them, and perhaps some day in the future we could repay their loyalty.
     
    AAA went into its final death spiral.  We started the war with 13,000 pilots.  The number quickly dropped to 10,000....5,000...2500...1000...and then bottomed out at 800.  The russians claimed a portion of the south as their home, created a few new alliances as buffer states/vassals, and sold the rest at public auction.  All the news sites ran stories congratulating the russians on their glorious conquest, and summing up the end of the war.  Life began to settle into the new status quo.  Everyone said the russians won; the war was over.
     
    Everyone except us.

    – Q1: When will you reveal the secret of the IS-4’s new feature? Q2: It won’t be Anton revealing it, but Murazor, and if my theory is correct, it will be swapping the places of IS-4 and ST-1, since Murazor talked about this long ago. – A: You are right, and yes, Murazor will tell about this.
    -----------------------------------------
    What you think about it?
    I guess it makes sense what they are trying to do (and it makes sense, IRL ST-I was designed after IS-4 anyways and in many ways was "improved" i guess), but i got very mixed feeling about this. What i expect them to do for ST-I is that they buff gun handling, reload, HP to ~2,5k and give it new engine. Im not sure if this is necessary change though, because i got feeling that tier 10 IS-4 definitely has more personality in terms of playstyle than ST-I, because ST-I is *sigh* yet another hulldown heavy with utter trash lower plate. But we will see. Hopefully it will become like IS-4 with better turret and more depression, i rly hope they buff the LFP. Also lastly, IS-4 is sexi while ST-I is fucking ugly and looks like an abomination.
    On other hand, tier 9 IS-4...those who played in 2011 will already be like  ...though it no longer has -9 depression and IS-7's gun.

    It'd be nice if they buffed the autoloader, ~100mm pen AP, ~160 pen APCR.

    Marks on the NA server are looking at around 6,000 damage & spotting right now
    So like 4.5k-5k DPG and 1k-1.5k Spotting

    me and @PityFool bought it last time it was on sale for 50% off. great game, pretty tactical. I actually played it again today. it can get REALLY intense (just last game we had us holding a point while being under constant fire from literally 3 sides for a solid 15 minutes, and it was the most intense and epic thing ever)
    though it can also get really boring, lots of walking+just holding positions with no enemies to shoot at. and spawn times are like 60 seconds if you die, normally accompanied with a lot of walking afterwards unless you have a FOB or rally point down near where you want to be. 
     
    however, great immersion, great teamplay, some epic firefights, pretty well polished for an alpha to be honest, and overall great fun.

    I had a really difficult semester, and have spent the last few weeks going from ok to depressed and back again. 
    Thankfully I managed to pass atleast 3/4 of my classes. Still waiting on the grades from my last one but at this point I don't give a shit. 
    I still have mixed feelings about my time here too, and I can get moody/silly easily. Its only occurred to me recently that I'm more immature than I think, so yeah...

    Cunicularius reacted to _Assad in STRV 103B: A post 200 game; 4k dpg review (Is it worth it?)   
    Currently at 68% W/R 200 Battles and 4006 DPG.
    The King of Gimmicks has arrived to the live servers. And with it has come many extremes and some entirely new playstyles. And no I'm not talking about how this tank is a camper's dream, In order to win games in this tank it's alot more complicated than what many of us are used to in a paper TD and a paper tank in general. No this tank is a breath of fresh air from the Grille 15 and unlike the Grille it's a much higher skill ceiling tank to play. Quite frankly I'm sure that if you straight up used free xp to get the thing day 1 with no prior experience in siege mode from the test server; that you're going to be in for a rough ride. 
    I'm here to ask and answer the question: Is the tank worth it? And while I might say "HOLY SHIT YES" therein lies the problem with this tank in general. It's a very niche tank for the player base. It requires alot of patience, map awareness, reading the flow of battle, picking the engagement, and lastly selfishness. If you go into battle without a single one of these then you're going to have a bad time. There are the one off battles where you can throw these ideas to the wind and still come out pretty well, but for consistency's sake I'm going to say that you need all of these to manage over 3800+ dpg.
    I'll write a guide later, but this a review. So I'm going to give a list of Pros and Cons regarding the tank and a model of its armor viewer
    Pros:
    4225 MAX DPM (Tortoise has 4270, but it's a shit platform and the 103B actually beats its reload by .08 seconds) Imho this tank really has the highest DPM in the game because it isnt held back by a shitty platform. Mobility and Finesse is fantastic. So I did some digging on tanks.gg and I found that the STRV 103B while it's overall HP/Ton isn't that great looking; It has the same terrain resistances than the leopard 1 and basically moves like the old 4202 at tier 10. And for those of you who are fairly new to the game It's a fucking rocket forward and reverse. Speaking of reverse, It goes fucking 45 in reverse (50 forward) allowing it's bullshit gimmick armor to bear the punishment as you run away. With Clutch Breaking (driver crew skill) It rotates at 43 deg/s The gun itself has great DPM, but for the first time in WoT isn't hampered by shitty gun handling or penetration. There is no way to see the stats within siege mode regarding the accuracy, but WG did say somewhere that it was .25 shortly before release. Even in the garage it stands out with .27 accuracy. Inside of siegemode when rotating the hull the gun has 0 dispersion making it the best snap shotter in the game in this situation. Gun depression: 11 degrees is fucking stupid on a TD.  Base APCR penetration: 308 base pen with 1500 m/s shell speed is retarded xd. Camo/Binocs dont deactivate while rotating in siege mode (Not limited to only this tank UDES and 103-0 share this trait). Slim profile and E25 camo at tier 10: The tank can hide behind the smallest depressions and cover not to mention its 49.5% camo with a full camo crew. Neutral:
    The armor profile itself; I'll go into depth in a bit. Cons:
    Absolutely useless outside of siege mode. The gun is locked to the hull so of course it would be. Siege mode is really only handy at mid to long range. If you dont have a wall to back into you're fucked. It's light weight (37 tons) means anything can bully you. When you raise the rear of your hull to get better depression brain dead retards think its funny to push you around and make you flip. Frontal engine makes you burst into flames more than California's forest fires. 3 crew, the fucking radioman is the loader. Armor is useless against calibers of 150mm or higher due to overmatch mechanics. Huge tracks make getting tracked very easy Very prone to module damage from HE Only 1800 HP For people who arent up to the level of doing 3-4k+ avg dpg, city maps you are nearly useless in city maps without adequate skill. Fuck artillery (Self explanatory)  360 base VR  
    Temporary Con:
    Right now it is extremely difficult to 2 mark let alone 3 mark due to low amounts of people actually having the damned thing. (Took me 4400 raw dpg to do).  

     
    So if a 103B is looking directly at you like this you can try to shoot the beak if you have a 122mm caliber gun or greater, but it wont be reliable unless you're very close. Your only option is above the gun or the cupolas really. And HEAT wont work because those blue/purple colored boxes are spaced armor which will eat your heat rounds. If you're a caliber of 100mm 105mm or 120mm your only option is the cupolas. If you're a 122, 128, 130 or 140mm cupolas or above the gun. 150mm+ shoot anywhere because LOLXD OVERMATCH HEHE.
    TLDR of this review: This is a VERY difficult tank to use and get used to no matter the skill of the player. The skill ceiling is sitting in the stratosphere for this tank, but for those of us who have a semblance of what we're doing; we're playing a god tier machine capable of easily soaring over 7k damage games consistently regardless of map. My best games so far have been on Paris for example.

    Even with gold, armor will always be relevant. "Press 2 to win" is not a thing. "Press 2 to assist in overcoming +/-25% rng and perhaps allow you to win this battle instead of getting shit on by sigma and map design in conjunction with your own knowledge and abilities" is a thing. 
    Is it perfect? No. But armor is not irrelevant. 
    Also, Change is not inherently good. And fuck arty, there's no such thing as arty safe.
