  1. As the title states, I'm interested in taking part in the upcoming campaign, ideally I'd like to be able to earn a reward tank. Availability: Monday-Thursday evenings after 6:45pm CST, and potentially during the day on weekends (for training and such). Tier X tanks in garage: Batchat, 430U, SConq, Maus, 50B, Foch B/155

    LFC for Soldiers of Fortune

    Yeah, I kind of dropped the ball on this event, as I thought it started in February. I'm not getting my hopes up.
  3. I totally forgot to activate all of my vehicle discounts before the end of the campaign... missing out on a 30% discount on a tier X is going to hurt. FeelsBadMan

    1. Hellsfog


      You have until 1.4 drops to take the discounts.

    2. FavreFan4ever


      I see WG has listed instructions for how to do so on their website. Thanks!

  4. All that would do would continue the cycle of constant buffs that have the game balance so out of whack in the first place. Granted, not many are capable of getting the 279(e), but its already in the hands of the elite of the elite- lets make it even stronger! I've only seen one in game- you can chalk it up to pubs not knowing where to shoot it, but I faced one during my TVP VTU grind on Ensk. It rolled over us, blocked something like 14k damage and dealing 10k. It wasn't penetrated ONCE. So yes, let's give it more armor.
  5. Researched: Škoda T 50 researched. Undistributed experience spent: 156150. Free Experience spent: 0.

    Sold: 'TVP VTU Koncept' successfully sold. Received credits: 1,624,086.

      Removing some corridors and some new maps (not hidden bullshit) mean it's a bit better than 3 months ago

      Too bad I don't have enough free xp to elite it... I've bought the suspension module, and I'm thinking of grinding the turret and free xping the autoloader.

      The overall sluggishness I noticed in a training room yesterday bothers me, though; I might free xp the engine/turret and then get the top gun ASAP. Sitting on around 57k free xp at the moment.

      The tier 10 has much better acceleration. The Škoda T 50 will feel a tad sluggish even after the engine upgrade. Honestly that was the main reason I moved to the tier 10.

    13 90 is a keeper for me. Thanks for the replay!

    Quack kill sound effect for WoT

    As someone who has never used a sound mod before, would you be so kind as to walk me through how to install this? It sounds delightful. Do I just download the thing and paste it into a specific folder?
  10. The TVP VTU is so bad that I managed to one-mark it after 59 games, averaging an abysmal 1100dpg and less than 500 assisted.

    What a dreadful tank.

    1. hazzgar


      1 marking it with those numbers isn't nothing rare. Many tanks get similar reqs. 

    2. FavreFan4ever


      Huh. I'd have thought I'd need about 200 more dpg to consider a 1-mark this early, but I'm not very familiar with MOE reqs relative to tiers.

    I can't come back to my Obj 140 after playing with 430U

    This thing is blatantly OP, yet for some reason I still struggle with it... after 20 games (small sample size, I know) I've got a 30% WR and just over 2k dpg. Somewhat frustrating considering how stupid this tank is. The thing I don't get is why this tank is in the game in the first place. What was wrong with the old Object 430? Now I've got a tank that, while better in most aspects, has a completely different playstyle than the one I set out to grind.
  12. Yeah, WG needs to be careful with this premium ammo change. The time for this change was before all the armor buffs and Defenders/Chryslers running around. Without changing those tanks, it'll be a huge nerf to anything without armor. It's a potential step in the right direction, but it needs to be accompanied by corresponding changes to armor values.

    Bat.-Chatillon 25 t Appreciation Thread

    I played my Bat for the first time in months the other day. Yep, it's still got it. What an amazing tank.
  14. T-50-2 is fun, but despite it's premium status it seems to struggle to make credits. Is this par for the course for tier 6 premium LT's? It shouldn't cost more to repair my machine than what I make on a 1k dmg loss firing all AP.

    2. Assassin7


      Yeah I noticed that. It makes shit credits.

      The CW reward tanks dont make credits because WG doesnt want people actually farming credits in tier 10. (If they did 907 is all I and anyone else would play lol) but the -2 doesnt really make sense.

    3. TheChang


      Same as the campaign reward tanks, (Stug IV, Excalibur) it's a reward tank, not a premium. 

    4. FavreFan4ever


      Yes, but it feels like it makes worse credits than normal tier 6s. I can't confirm this, nor do I wish to crunch a bunch of numbers, but a 1k dmg on a loss firing all AP in a tier 6 tank shouldn't lose me credits. Heck, I barely break even on a win sometimes.

  15. What is the best bang for your buck when it comes to improved equipment? I'll likely only be able to afford one.

    Viable tanks for receiving this include any of the French tier Xs (sans arty), SConq, Maus, or TVP 50/51.

    I'd appreciate suggestions combining a piece of improved equipment along with a tank (i.e. Batchat with Improved Stabilization)

      How realistic is it to play with a new CLAM during the next ClamWars long enough to be able to buy a Reward Tank?  Can you estimate the number of games/hrs required.

    3. simba90


      I just bought a iVstab for the BC25t and it has made a noticeable difference for my shooting. I am slightly less potato than I was before I put it on. It is pretty much the only piece of improved equipment I can recommend as something that people should think about doing as standard. I've been sitting on ~9k bonds for a while just using them on firefighting directives so I can run food on my T10s and scouts

      430U with improved equipment + food to make the gun reliable.

    AMX M4 mle 1951 Appreciation thread

    This thing is pretty great, I've written at times about how it's an inferior Conq (with respects to its hull-down capabilities), but the mobility and hull armor advantage you get make bullying tanks easy and getting to important positions a breeze. Plus, you're a French tank, which means that you can get overlooked on the battlefield- a mistake you can punish the enemy for making. I'll be the first to admit that I'm not a great player, but this tank is really comfortable to play. Still undecided if I want to buy the tier X, though.

    AMX M4 mle. 45

    The tier 9 on the AMX M4 line is better than the 50 120, but (having not played the AMX M4 54) I'd rather be in a 50B. The reason is that the AMX M4 54 has having two underwhelming guns to choose from. The 120mm makes you a subpar Super Conq with low DPM, while the 130mm makes you unable to reliably pen the enemy with its *GASP* 280mm of premium ammo pen. The tank itself is sloid, and its one of the better chassis the French line gets. However, the gun selection for a tier X is abysmal and the defining trait of the tank (which should be its niche 130mm) is all but useless. At least you can overmatch STRV's, though. It's as though every time WG wants to make armor relevant again, they introduce a French tank (Foch B, nerf to AMX 30/30B, AMX M4 54) with poor pen and then go back to putting Bobjects and Badgers in the game. Tier 8: 50 100 >> AMX 65t Tier 9: AMX M4 51 >>> AMX 50 120 Tier X: 50B > AMX M4 51 Top tier in a 3/5/7 match? You'll kick butt in the AMX M4 54, especially with the 130mm. If you're in an all tier X match? You'd probably rather be in a 50B.

    Obj 257 - the Armored Catamaran

    I'd like the tracks for the increase in mobility, mostly. Capacity isn't a problem with the stock tracks, but I do find myself wanting to be able to move my armor around more efficiently.

    Obj 257 - the Armored Catamaran

    I'm grinding this thing on the way to the IS7. I've got around 48l xp so far, as well as the top gun (thankfully). Should I go tracks/turret, or engine?

    ELC AMX and the Patch 9.18 (It's still a good tank)

    I just miss the maneuverability, tbh. Sure, it can still scoot, but not like it used to. It might not be as bad of a tank as I fear, but the fun factor was lessened.
  21. FavreFan4ever

    ELC AMX and the Patch 9.18 (It's still a good tank)

    They could've done this for more than just the French tech tree, although it's as though they redesigned the role of light tanks to be less "scouty" to be more (in)consistent damage dealers. On one hand, they're more effective at dealing consistent damage (I've only played the Frenchies), but less able to scout. effectively against higher tier meds.

    ELC AMX and the Patch 9.18 (It's still a good tank)

    Should've just moved it to tier 6 and called it good. It was already balanced to see tier 8s anyways...

    ELC AMX and the Patch 9.18 (It's still a good tank)

    You quoted me... comparing the old ELC AMX bis to its current nerfed state post 9.18 (the purpose of this thread). It has always been a tier 5, it just lost its scout MM so the highest it can see is tier 7 (hence my confusion about you supposedly getting YOLO'd by a tier 5 tank in a tier 9 tank).
  25. FavreFan4ever

    ELC AMX and the Patch 9.18 (It's still a good tank)

    We're discussing the ELC AMX, a tier 5 which will never see the 257. Is it possible you're thinking about the ELC Even 90?
