  1. Random drug screening at work: (false) positives for EDDP, Buprenorphine and Fentanyl (all very heavy painkillers) together with the prescription stuff I have

    I was legit spiraling down a "my life is over" trip wondering how I'd explain this one.. result was sent to lab analysis for further investigation and thank god they could see that parts of the profiles necessary to be legitimate were missing.. those were some rough fkn 3 days of hellish anxiety knowing i didn't do that but thinking i was going down anyway

      In Germany we had an underground neonazi "terror group" (2 men + 1 woman) causing havoc some years ago ("NSU"). After they were dealed with their DNA suddenly surfaced in a murder/rape case concerning a prepubescent girl. The press ofc went amok, after a few weeks it turns out the same laboratory that handeled the terror group also worked on the murder/rape case of that girl.

      They ofc had nothing to do with the murder/rape.

      Respone from the legeslative? Hot air - no requirement for independent verification.

  2. Second half of the game is very good decisionmaking IMO in the interest of winning but doesn't 1 line feel a bit too passive in this tank right at the start?
  3. I tried this for just a couple games on account that had it, and since I've been playing mostly Borrasque the gameplay wasn't all too unfamiliar. I didn't have the idea of trying IRM on it (seems to band-aid a decently big problem to a better extent than whatever equipment piece you dropped was worth in game in theory) so I came out at about 2500ish as well but I only did 8 games. Needless to say I'm not the player I used to be, but I didn't feel that the tank was the problem in my games as much as me making poor decisions. Armour is totally useless, if you know how to play tanks like AM
  4. yeah m46 vr actually gets stuff done in tier 9 max battles so an optic loadout for those situations is probably the only other loadout besides full gun spec that may come in useful so i think it's a good second loadout if you're going to carry one, sacking the rammer for it always makes me yikes a bit but i think it's the least useful equipment piece for a VR/snap patton (like it used to play before 357). im not sure what the rld ends up being but i'm guessing you can keep it at 8s? im guessing if you're all in on the m46 this is how i would do it, more mobile good vr without nerfin
  5. played some 50-ish games on the weekend after a very very long break.. (i have like 20 battles in february otherwise break since august last year)

    apparently i can only play chieftain now as i could 5,5k that no problem for 30 games but lord heavens if i try to play a medium tank and die with 2k every other game :eww:

      I cant even make purple anymore, havent for a while. Too rusty and dont play enough.

       

      It also doesnt help that every time I come and play a few games of WoT, Ive been playing war thunder so much the last year that Im defaulting to WT controls and it makes WoT feel weird lol

      If it helps I'm slipping a few points from my overalls and I play all the time! 

  6. I've done a 140 in 80 games. 4,9K DPG/1200 assisted. I can tell you right away that your stats are on the low end for being able to do this one. If you don't feel comfortable racking up damage with a gun like this coupled with armour that only works if you know how to work it this is just not your tank at the moment. You need a good grasp on how to second line without drawing attention and how to rack up a decent amount of damage without using HP at all to do so early on. Playing a tank like this comes with it's share of problems but dealing damage is not one of them. Unless you get swarmed by
  7. Guess WG will look to be hiring personnel or step on the brakes for development coming forward for a while. To be honest I think the game has been on an upward trend since the EBR bullshit where, short of some maps, most of the changes and additions have been positive. There's also the possibility that WG thinks they can keep their workforce as almost the entire worlds game devs have learned how to work remotely now, and with the main offices just being a PR thing outwards which is necessary. I understand the importance of sticking to your guns when it comes to ideals but not keeping the

  9. Yeah looks like my circuits are overloaded, I'm going to try using more than 3 outlets with extension chords for PC/sound equipment/DJ gear. It's 3 monitors (picture), PC, audio interface, KORG synth, 2 monitors (audio, pretty power hungry) and DJ mixer + decks running from the 3 outlets I have in this room into extensions (PC/2 monitors (video) - DJ mixer, synth, audio interface, 3rd monitor - audio monitors) into the most even distribution I could think of between them but might try and pull some extensions through the living room into here that's on a different circuit and see what ha

      I hope that I won't have to go to the eastern front (Hungary) and everything will settle before it can start an international crisis...

  11. Balanced audio output is a way to reduce interference by reverse polarity. TRS jacks are balanced outputs but RCA/XLR are not. It’s not very important if you don’t have interference issues, unless you have to carry signals across several stations or a signifikant distance until it reaches the monitor/speaker where it becomes the only option. My next step is looking into the electrical circuits in my home lol
  12. Yeah, I’ve been using audio interfaces for quite a while (no other way to use balanced outputs and several line in’s into a PC and speakers at the same time) and even on midrange speakers/headphones the difference is almost unbelievable. I’ve tried to look into this exact problem before with no luck since I’ve had interference issues for as long as I can remember with PC audio. Entirely different audio interface, cables, ports and speakers tried separately so I wound up borrowing a PC and started mixing parts with mine to see if I could find the problem and replacing the GPU made a n
  13. for what it's worth audio will just find new ways to drive you crazy once you start solving problems lol, it's just an endless pit of disappointed sighs
  14. i skimmed a bit of it, most of it's stuff i pretty much had a grasp on - not the maths or the why's but pretty close to "how" i was willing to die on the hill that final acc > aim time several years ago but nobody believed me until the SConq and Grille got into the game
  15. t10 udes armour is pretty troll but it's the silhouette that is your effective armour anyway, you trade the shots bounced for shots missed and it'll still hold up remarkably well for a medium armourwise (less troll but stronger than a 907) as long as you keep your front towards what's shooting at you which'll estimate the sheer ammo fired at you to wear you down somewhere around a superheavy on average the range honestly doesn't matter much as your silhouette at that angle will always be too small for a reticle to hit reliably and this tank works best when the gun is close enough to relia
  16. I mean it’s one of the most intensive games specwise on the market, pretty much made to be visually intensive and immersive Recommended GPU to run the game at all is a 970/1060 on 1080p, up that to 1440p and settings to complement it at a decent framerate and you’re looking at a 20XX GPU to get any kind of ”beauty” from the game
  17. Save the money to wait for GPU prices to be more manageable, a 1070 could probably run 2 LoL games at the same time and AoE isn’t really a framerate sensitive game I’m waiting for more DDR5 options to drop the initial price, next gen GPU to drop the 3080 price (it seems good for futureproofing and can run 32:9 1440p which is what I’m looking for) and whatever CPU generation/mobo that makes sense to pair it up with when the time comes The entire upgrade is pretty much entirely based on that I want a G9 Odyssey monitor (or something similar) really bad and now that I’m out of uni actua
  18. play it like ”what if i were in a light tank without light tank camo” or an LT on a city map with new equipment this tank is literally worse than ever, but the requirement should reflect that as the only people playing this tank are people who need credits but refuse to buy something from wg again, which could be a small enough number that you might end up playing against your own average (check hall of fame to see how many people have at least 50 games on it this month, if it’s less than 10 you’ll raise the mark yourself while playing it which is not an enjoyable experience)
  19. Would you say the game has improved over the last 6 months? 

    I think it might be the first time the reception seems to have trended upwards for WoT since like 2014

      Based on the last few years - I've been playing more tanks in the last 6 mos than any other time in recent memory (RIP personal life). I still have a ton of "what the faaaaaa?" moments seeing 48%ers in bourrs crushing it and getting gold spammed in my 8s by tier Xs - but yeah, I feel you on this.

      I think the game has gotten better the last 6 months.

      Field mods was a nice QOL improvement, the last few maps added have been above average, recon mode or whatever it's called has been pretty nice, hell, I even like the addition of tier 9 for frontlines.

      I've played more this fall than at any other point since probably 2014.

  20. This is mostly theory since I've played very little since eq 2.0 but i stuck with single loadouts on everything that doesn't have a quality significant to warrant the bother of a second loadout which most mediums/heavies don't. camo TD's and lights definitely do and I think field mods are a huge buff to those classes but almost all mediums and heavies have such a predefined optimal way of play that unless you're very mobile with burst they all want the same things out of their equipment which is short of swapping specific aim equipment for other aim equipment i just never felt inferior going w
