  1. 40TP is pure dog shit

    1. echo9835


      the 40TP wishes it was pure dog shit.

  2. Huge chinese buffs incoming.

    The T-34-1 wasn't even that horrible to begin with, at least back when I played it.

    You get a low profile, hard turret tank with a punchy but inaccurate gun. Prem rounds helped though. Now they will help even more with 280pen

  3. 10v10 ranked was fairly fun.


    Contrary to my solopub experience it had a skirmish feel to it all the way for the first two days or so.

      @DoggieKruger 3rd part killed my progress. A ton of loses no matter what I did. I think I sit at 51% WR for 10 vs 10 which is shit.

      I had a lot of fun with this, but between work clashing with the ranked hours for the first week, and then a camping trip with some buddies for a few days the second week, I didn't have enough time to get to a league.
      I reached 1st division on Saturday, and went all the way to rank 8 in that division during Sunday (last day), and with two hours remaining my brain was completely melted and I just bounced back and forth between 7 and 8. So no Turbo for me this time...

      If only they'd opened it an hour or two earlier each night I would have had time to play more and maybe get into Bronze at least.

      Primetime is absolutely nuts for somebody who works night shifts like me. I missed half the days just because I had to go the work/was at work.

      My overall results is 64.04% and I'm ended up at Rank 8 like you which I guess is not too horrible

  4. Really struggling to have any fun at all in Tier 10 games. Between EBRs, 2-3 arty games and high alpha HT/TDs.

    Every game is like a struggle to survive while your team melts.

  5. Post-buff STB is good but I can get it to work as well as my soviet mediums Maybe I just need to find the best ridgelines in every map? Like the turret is not as good as a 140 or 907 (imo) and the gun craps out on me at the worst times possible
  6. Realised that the game balance is fucked after an EBR absorbed two of my 50 120's APCR into its suspension at CQB range


    Like literally how the fuck do you expect the game to be fun

  7. Hate playing Steppes in HTs. Just one big arty click fest

  8. Nice maybe CDC is more usable now Also, remember the time when soviet/chinese prem HTs had 175pen? Pepperridge Farms remembers
  9. 8 Battles, 2 Wins


    Typical day for me @_@ 

  10. Glad I followed skill's recommendation to get this tank. I suck at most high tier play but the char future is able to carry me
  11. Getting pretty sick of Pilsen

    1. sohojacques


      It was a permaban for me.

    2. DoggieKruger


      Only having 2 maps to ban when 1/3 of the maps suck is pretty sad

  12. Weird that we didn't get this. But we did get plenty of OP broken shit
  13. 0% survival rate in P44 Panthera in 20 or so battles

    What am I doing wrong fellas

      You keep dying. lets start there.

    3. kolni


      Could be infinitely many things based on that information

    4. DoggieKruger


      In general, I feel like I'm getting punished too much trying to chase the early game damage.

      Patience is not my forte

      24 battles, 2 survived. Aw lordy

  14. After a short lived river rush meta, live oaks north spawn in SEA has degenerated back to going city and camping the case.

    1. HowitzerBlitzer


      river rush on severogorsk was never meta

  15. Becoming a masochist playing the WZ-120

    Realised the 100mm gun could be buffed to being shy of the T-54's top 100mm guns and it wouldn't even be near OP.

    The 122mm could be buffed to 5degrees and it would just be quality of life.

      I was thinking about this tank, and what I realized is that I basically just play it like a TD, up until the map opens up, and then I play it like a LT. Meaning, early on I just sit back and fling big hurty shells into things, where long aimtime and -3 depression aren't a big factor. Then, when there is space I use the acceptable mobility and small size to just flank and clean up. So it kinda never enters the "brawly medium" mode - which I don't do particularly well in. 

    3. yoyoya2


      I honestly just loved the alpha on it, the problem with the T-54 was that 320 alpha which just isn't useful in trading situations. 440 Alpha on a medium is just too good no matter how bad the gun depression is. Most of the times I wouldn't even notice that problem due to it's playstyle. The T-54 is the Toyota of Tanks, It will never let you down but just isn't exciting. The WZ is a Lambo, Yeah its shit for daily driving and reliability but what it does well it does really well (Alpha) In the End which one do I prefer? I want to have fun so of course i'll take the WZ

    4. DoggieKruger


      @CraBeatOffNice, definitely gonna try that

  16. Problem with WoT is really a shit ton of bad-shitty maps

    Do we really need so many fucking maps to play tanks on?


  17. Still nerd raging on why the American and Japanese MT lines don't make more sense especially when I personally think Tier 9s should be mini-Tier 10's in terms of gameplay and aesthetics.

    Japanese MT line should from Tier 8 onwards be kinda sluggish, but good DPM hull-down snipers. Type 61 has absolutely horrible camo when it's only taller than the T-55 by 9centimetres irl and meant to be a small tank for small Japanese tankers. Would be better if ST-B1 was Tier 9 and an updated ST-B3 or Type 74 was in Tier 10.

    M46 starts out as an enhanced Pershing (as it really was) and becomes some Franken-M47 with unhistorical 105mm, and has 5 crew members. Why not insert the M48 as a Tier 9 and have the A5 variant or M60 as the Tier 10 instead?

      Visually and performance wise the in-game STB-1 is a Type 74. Especially the 3D style which makes it a modern Type 74. 

      The Type 61 also suffers from inaccurate model height and a ridiculous camo rating. It's slightly shorter than the easy 8 sherman IRL and has a much lower chassis. But somehow has one of the worst camo ratings, on par with the E50. So it really just feels out of place in between the STA1 and STB1 and a huge roadblock to the Tier 10. You don't actually have to remove it, my biggest bugbear is the silly camo rating. Having a STB at Tier 9 would be much cooler though. 

      Visually, M26 and M46 is almost identical. Most of the difference was in performance. M46 was almost a Pershing before being named as Patton. So not much issue with slapping a M46 turret on the fully upgraded tier 8 and calling it whatever you want. 

      M47 is so visually different just by the turret that having the tier 9 be called a M46 but having the final M47 turret is also odd to be sure. Skipping the M46 is a-ok as there's a M46 premium and the tech tree clean up showed that Wargaming is ok with removing historical progression. 

      Knowing WoT, I care less about the overall historicity than a smooth progression that can enhance the gameplay and fun.

      Tanks with turrets changing the "model" of tank isnt new though, the Centurion 1 with the upgraded turret is the Centurion 3 for example. 

    4. hazzgar


      Outside of not making sense type61 is a good tank. Especially with new equipment. Slap a turbo on it and it's really enjoyable.

  18. Spent 1.2million credits in Ranked Battles only to end up the same rank.


    Welp that's hours of my life I'm not getting back

      Any tips or tricks for the T-100LT in Ranked?

    3. sr360


      @DoggieKruger yes. Tip #1: you're not an EBR. Tip #2: you're not an EBR!

      The common mistake made by non-EBR LT drivers is to try to play the EBR's game. The EBR has speed and camo in spades, but it lacks VR. The T-100 has less speed, similar camo, and fully decked out gets 60m or so more VR. I open by taking bushes which are less aggressive than I'd usually take in a non-EBR game, but with a view of common EBR scouting routes. The goal is to light their EBR on his initial spotting run, and hope your strvs and leos can make him pay. As the EBR loses HP and eventually dies, you can go to a more standard aggressive scouting approach especially if you're the only LT. Essentially, any game with the enemy EBR dying early should be a set up for 2 chevs. Due to the campy nature of Ranked, a T-100 is actually not bad for digging out enemy tanks. A CVS-equipped T-100 can burn out enemy camping tanks progressively.

      I posted several T-100 ranked games in my replay thread: a Prok game with no EBR and 6k spotting, a Siegfried Line game where I exploit my VR advantage over an EBR, and a Karelia no-EBR game where again, picking the LT early leads to just massive vision domination.

      @sr360 I know how to play non ebr lights I just don't have them on my current account. I'd argue in some situations in ranked I'd rather be in a manticore or t100lt (grinding for both atm). Though some battles people went for insane yolo's and it's where it makes sense to ebr. 

      As for spot - I had some 10k combined on westfield with 7.7k spot on the ebr but also around 5 or 6k spot on the Leo in Prok when all scouts and bats died.

  19. Ranked battles are a hell of your own making

    > place poorly

    >Get stuck with idiot teammates

    >Unable to get out of Division III

    1. hazzgar


      I love role filling since somehow even campy tanks have a role of shoot your own spot when it already gives you more exp. Plus yeah teams are horrible. Wish I had more lights tho since the teams at least shoot better than on randoms so you can get decent results there.

  20. Seriously 40 Arty and 9 MT matching on Ranked. Is this just Asia things?

  21. Thanks. Confirms what I thought. Could have bought 2 Improved equipment with that 10k bonds. Oh well.
  22. Came back to the game after 3 years, saw I had 10k bonds and bought a Patriot. Regret immediately. Any ideas what I should have bought instead? The bonds Vert Stab look insane. 27% over 20??
  23. playing this game after months of inactivity reminds me of how much arty still sucks

    Like honestly they couldn't make a decent indirect fire support class????

    1. lavawing


      M44 is decent, so decent as to be indecent

    2. DoggieKruger


      Sorry I meant to say "sucks to be on the receiving side"

  24. how to contribute effectively as a conqueror on mountain pass? arty shits on me wherever I go

    1. Vindi


      You can't. Same applies to glacier. Driving a sconq nowadays is pure pain.

    2. EndlessAgony


      Simple, drive a different Conqueror :doge:


      JK, fuck skycancer


  25. Looks like it's going for a dry desert look, but definitely could be greasier
