  1. No. I just re-bought it today after not playing it in about 3 years. It's totally different. Goes up hill like a slug and the gun traverse on the 90 mm is atrocious. I had to switch back to the 75 mm.
  2. Holy, shit. The ELC got nerfed into tier 3. It's soooooo bad.

    New US Prem tank destroyer the TS5

    How about gold ammo that couldn’t be bought for silver?

    Hidden tech tree jewels?

    I just played through the tier 4 Italian tank. I don’t even remember what it’s called. Anyway, it has 70 mm of penetration with 175 alpha on the HE rounds. That’s hilariously overpowered at tier 4. It had to have been a mistake. Tier 8 mediums wish they had that kind of DPM.

    T49 -- Land Arty in a Bite-Size Package

    So, this happened... That's what I like to call a "why the fuck not?" shot. I was actually more concerned with not hitting my teammate in the T-100. I had him just outside of the full screen reticle. Also, the replay is interesting to watch. It features Barks_Internally derping out early with 0 damage (I didn't know he still played), a really weird dispersal by the red team and having to suicide derp to reset cap and save the win. For bonus points, a RELIC guy gets accused of hacking.

    December 2018 Map Elimination

    I came here just to bitch about Studzianki, but it's already gone. Abbey - 12 Airfield - 12 Cliff - 15 El Halluf - 16 Empire's Border - 3 - 3 = 0. Buh, bye! Ensk - 12 Erlenberg - 10 Fjords - 12 Glacier - 13 Himmelsdorf - 15 Karelia -16 Lakeville - 15 Live Oaks - 9 Malinovka - 16 Mannerheim Line - 12 Mines - 6 Minsk - 15 Murovanka - 21 Overlord - 13 Pilsen - 6 Prokhorovka - 20 + 1 = 21. If only I could turn it off in brick heavies... Province - 13 Redshire - 17 Ruinberg - 15 Sand River - 16 Serene Coast - 15 Siegfried Line - 3 - 3 = 0. Unbalanced. Steppes - 18 Tundra - 15 Westfield - 16 Widepark - 15
  7. OMG! I've had Hinterland 3 out of the last 4 matches. :(

      I had Grand Battles turned on for a few thousand battles when they were new and got into them 2-3 times total (maybe I played at the wrong times?). I didn't know the maps very well and at the time was playing on a computer that had performance issues with them, so I turned them off. Now I'm considering turning them back on for more map variety.

    First Noobie/Newbie Post

    STOCK? Are they trying to make new players rage quit?!?

    First Noobie/Newbie Post

    Hi, Bert. Welcome! I suppose the tier 6 is handed out to jumpstart people that want to play Strongholds with a clan...
  10. I want to use the holiday discounts on the Caern, Conq and S. Conq.

    I finished the Church I ages ago and hated it. Slow, unreliable armor, slow, low alpha and did I mention slow? Should I skip the Church VII (~58k XP), Black Prince (125k XP) or both (~183k XP) while going up the line?

    It's another 46k XP to elite the Caern… Ugh.

      Currently I grind to S. Conq. Free exp usage: zero. I'm alive but Churchill VII was close. BP at least has turret armor and apcr. Caer with 17-pounder full apcr is an expensive fun machine for a psychopath. I liked it :D

    3. monjardin


      Church VII skipped. I'll give the BP the ol' college try. However, I only made it a few games into the Tiger (P) before rage selling it. I'll try to get to at least 20 games with the BP. :D

    4. monjardin


      LOL. I just realized that the BP uses the same gun as the Tog. I was trying to figure out why I already had some ammo in the depot, and that was it. The only difference is 0.02 better accuracy on the tier 7.

  11. I should rephrase that. It made it unplayable on my setup until I installed an SSD. Individual experiences may vary.
  12. The HD maps made an SSD a requirement if you wanted to load in before the countdown finished.
  13. This HE is hilarious!
  14. Playing the Italian tree for shits and giggles. The top gun on the tier 4 has almost as much pen on the HE shell as the AP shell. AND it always does damage!

      P.43 after it is pure garbage, especially since you always get tier 7s

    3. monjardin


      Hmm... I may have to skip the tier 5. The tier 6 has 240 alpha. That sounds workable. The soft stats must be atrocious to compensate?

    4. Ham_


      Every second tank is good basically. Tier 5 and 7 are both sidegrades, literally same tank with worse mm.

    Fisherman's Bay

    Are we talking about Airfield?

    December 2018 Map Elimination

    Yes, Erlenberg was one of my favorites too. I can’t figure out how to play it now in the few games I’ve had since coming back. Actually, all of my favorite maps have either been removed are changed such that they don’t play anything like they did previously. Can I just downvote? LOL On mobile, so... Fisherman’s Bay -3 I hate what they did to the middle. Empire’s Border -3 WTF?! Malinovka +1 I just picked one that I don’t mind at random.
  17. Whoa. I almost bought the Emil II yesterday, but didn't. Now it's On Track and 30% off today. That usually happens the other way around.


  18. Why is the STG 10k gold for the Advent Calendar "special," but only 9.7k gold in the tech tree?

      Better question is who is left to buy it since it was on sale this last weekend?

    3. monjardin


      True. It was just 15% off two days earlier.

    4. Ham_


      It wasn't on EU, Advent Calendar is a global event so yeah NA WG marketing at its best :trump:

    Ikv 65 Alt II, tier 6 TD

    I take it that you haven’t played the tier 7? It’s MUCH worse.
  20. Are skirmishes/tournaments still a thing? I thought they got dropped. Those were a lot of fun!
  21. Type 59 needs more buffs.


    1. monjardin


      Wow! I just realized how shit the rest of my team was except for the VK 30.02 M that followed me for the whole match. He was a really good wingman.

    XM551 Sheridan - Tubby Leopard

    It's been a while since I've gone derping. I just mounted the BFG on the Sheridan for the first time, and I was rewarded with this gem in the first outing. The joy of this 1-shot on a full HP camping Charioteer at ~300 m while zipping along at 60 kph is hard to put into words. Nuked a clicker and got some French TD butt in the corner afterwards.
  23. I just played two randoms for the first time since February. I load in a good 10-20 seconds after the start now. Is an SSD an absolute requirement for 1.0+, or do I have something misconfigured?!

      I had a similar issue (ended up HD cratered) but a good defrag or even just the Wot sound folder, can do wonders.  Turning off the sound works as well because WG have some significant inefficienties built into the sound programming.

      Thanks, @Bavor! That’s good to know. 

      Of course, I ended up buying an SSD anyway and the ridiculous load times vanished.
