  1. It's painful to read the amount of negative comments posted EVERY DAY in this  Status blog about bad pubbies.  Yes, we all get that you take this game (WoT) 10x times more serious than they do, and that you are 2-3x times better on average in any given battle than they are.  That neither makes them stupid, feckless or willfully ignorant - it just means they do not care as much as you do about performing well, and they never will.  Complaining about their perceived stupidity is like complaining about the weather, and since they don't read this forum, has the same overall effect.

    I respect your skill and determination, but not your degradation of others.

      We're telling you that the only outcome will be catharsis.  They won't learn anything, you can't fix the pubbies, you can't teach them anything, you just have to do whatever it is helps you forget about their shittery and move on to the next game.

  2. Fuck Lakeville, map is too complicated for pubbies...

      Yeah, as long as the soft terrain mod goes away, I guess it's supposed to stop cap rushing, but also making it a proper fighting place would do that anyway.

      People need to work through the five stages of pubbie grief.  When you reach acceptance you just understand that potatoes gonna potate and worry about what you can do better next time.

      They need to start eliminating the idiot traps on maps and replacing them with useful zones.  They can start with Lakeville Valley.  Remove the soft terrain modifier, make it a very shallow gradient all the way rather than a halfway ridge, flatten out the very map edge to increase the usable area, and then put some blocking terrain to give cover to fight around.

  5. Historical battles on test: I'm curious if the crowded german queue and the empty US and soviet will carry over to live?

      Haven't they taken the JT out of that scenario because if your JT was bad you lost?

  7. Does XVM shows your recent WN8 and W/R?

    1. GloatingSwine

      GloatingSwine

      No, sites have to maintain their own historical database and generate recent stats from it by comparing. XVM don't maintain historical performance just the latest snapshot (probably for storage reasons, given that they theoretically have to maintain everyone's stats not just those that are manually queried like wotlabs or noobmeter)

  8. just watched neon genesis evangelion. that ending was shittier than mass effect 3. where the fuck is my rebuild

    1. GloatingSwine

      GloatingSwine

      The moral of the ending of Mass Effect 3 is that ten minutes from the end of a heroic space opera is not the time to get pretentious.

      If you're the only 50 100 in a TB that's basically your job. Wait until everyone's fired then clip someone down, hide behind your team until it's time to do it again. Because there are limited guns on the field you can more easily control for return fire.

  10. What equipment to use on my KV-2?

    1. GloatingSwine

      GloatingSwine

      I mean not a lot of options for a tier 6 heavy anyway, it's just a case of whether you get zen about having shitty view range or try and fight the darkness with optics.

  11. The minute mark you realize only you and one other tank are moving to cover an entire half of the map alone. And then he drives into the ocean. God, I hate this game.

  15. What consumables should I run on 183?

    1. GloatingSwine

      GloatingSwine

      I can't imagine there's ever a situation where you're playing a tank which costs 8000 every time you shoot and trying to save money on consumables, so just pudding it up.

  18. The AMX 50 100 has no armor how is it supposed to get damage if it dies so easily?

    1. GloatingSwine

      GloatingSwine

      Simple fact is that if you're top tier heavy and you don't go to the Big Heavy Fight your pubs will fuck it up, and the Big Heavy Fight usually decides control of some kind of important location. Sometimes you are just going to have to pretend you're a real heavy tank, but you have to do it in a way that exploits the fact that you can put three shells into someone in their reload time and still have time to get back into cover.

      Wait for enemy to shoot first, then drive out and shoot them repeatedly with autoloader.
