  1. Still playing, still lurking here, still cleaning out spammers (mainly from Pakistan).

    1. Medjed


      Thank you for your service, Sir!

  2. Never mind the HE changes for T49 I'm simply not hitting any shots with it anymore...

      I just don't hit anything anymore. Performance dropping over the last few months without me being able to identify why. Was on the border of being able to three mark everything to basically being stuck on 75% on everything in 2-3 months.

    3. NightmareMk9


      THIS!  I seriously think WG fucked some other part of the game.  I miss fully aimed shots in my Getto.  You don't see it hit the dirt or anything.  Then you get that weird ass 'explosion' right in front of the tank.  WTF?

      Same thing with arty.  It is a Shit Show.  You don't see the misses any more, so like literally 1/2 my shells just seem to disappear.

    4. PlanetaryGenocide


      I did have one arty shell just completely randomly fucking disappear today, not sure what's up with that.

  3. Last 150 battles: 48% win rate (dropped from 59.96 to 59.89 overall) and 1900 WN8 (down from 2600 recent for like 14 months - even my 60 day is for the first time in 10 years under my overall values...). I just completely forgot how to play... In every tank in every tier.

      When i started playing again, i could feel i lost a lot of ``skill``, fastest way to get back into the game (for me) was to play a lot of different tanks, go on maps to different points and in general camp like a bitch, to see how the game `plays` (i also watched soem streamers, dez and skill, to see where they go with certain tanks)

      On prok for example i changed my default game position to camp middle ridge, closer to the forest, and works great, and so on, on many maps im still sorta not sure where to go, but ill prob get there eventually (new maps would also help, since then everyone needs to relearn, giving me the advantage, hue hue hue)

      ps: so i`d say, play t8 tds, or middle tier medium / light tanks (t6 /t7/t8) to get the hang of maps, and ofc, done play tier 10, tx suks dik...

    3. Private_Miros


      It's just every single game, I take an aggressive position and the enemy yoloes; I take a defensive position and I get no shooting opportunities. I never make the right call anymore.

    4. GehakteMolen


      hmm, then i`d say, stick with 1 or 2 tanks, you like (and which are sorta meta) and only play those, eventually you should ``get the hang of it`` again. And remember why u died and more important from where. On many maps key positions greatly changed, spots which where awefull in the past are all of a sudden now powerfull, and vice versa. Even now, im some maps i still have no clue where to go (say Cliff with 3 arty and tier 9 heavy in a tier 10 fight).

  4. Does the AMX 30 always burn from small caliber frontal shots, or am I just unlucky as hell with 4 fires in 5 games from shots of Kpz 07s and Progettos without prior module damage?

  5. Still struggling to do more than 1k damage in tier 10. Either I am careful and the team dies and I get nothing to shoot before being swarmed, or I am agressive and the team camps and I get swarmed faster without being able to shoot much.

  6. Ranked got me my very first chat ban I think. Although, honestly, I cannot remember why that would be.

    1. Private_Miros


      I actually asked WG to motivate the ban and point out my infraction.

      I got this answer: "there is substantial evidence within our register, which shows that the ban is absolutely legitimate"

      To which I responded: Can you share this substantial evidence?

      Answer: "we don't manage the insult in World of Tanks anymore"

      Reaction: but how can is there substantial evidence then? What was the violation or are the violations specifically?

      Answer: "I invite you to stop breaking the game rules in the chat or you will face stronger sanction in the future, or even a definitive one."  / ticket closed.

    2. Private_Miros


      New ticket:


      I hate to create another topic, but Ticket ID 130724155 was closed before I got a satisfactory response - despite the quite explicit "If you have more questions, please feel free to contact us again."

      In that ticket it was stated that the time stamp and log of alleged violation cannot be provided as "we don't manage the insult in World of Tanks anymore", yet at the same time it is communicated clearly that "there is substantial evidence within our register, which shows that the ban is absolutely legitimate".

      These two statements are extremely contradictory. You cannot state both that you somehow have massive logs of my committing substantial violations (which I refute) while not managing that information at all.

      It is my right as a consumer to understand and get a motivated reasoning behind an action negatively affecting me, without me being threatened by "invit[ing me] to stop breaking the game rules in the chat or you will face stronger sanction in the future, or even a definitive one." That breaking the game rules is an offense and that sanctions are attached to offenses is self-evident.

      This issue has gone from me asking the exact time stamp and log of this serious violation warranting a chat ban (which I shall submit to if justified but wish to know the reason of - as is my right) to customer support bluntly accusing me of being a serial and substantial violator of the game rules!

      Kind regards

      Answer: "With regards to this case, you were found in violation of our game rules and was given a temporary chat suspension. Specifically inappropriate behaviour in chat." / ticket closed


      So no idea how their system works. I generally don't use swear words, though the occasional well that was fucking stupid/retarded/idiotic might be there. So either it's a counter that never resets. Or someone got very salty at me and reported me, most likely a platoon.

  7. Every time I play tier 10 I forget how to play and start to fail in all tiers.

  8. T-55A is my nemesis. Struggling to get games with over 1k damage in this piece of crap. It never hits any shots.

  9. Actually giving this clan thing a try again.

    1. arthurwellsley


      you picked a very fun clan to try it ....

    2. Private_Miros


      We'll see :P Actually still only had contact with those that I already knew before.

  10. Having one of my biggest set backs since my return last year in January. Barely managing to penetrate 3 or 4 shots per game (despite shooting 20-25 times per game in close combat or map controlling locations). Just a week long now, nothing works out. Had a few decent games, but not a single good one, and 80% just ridiculously bad.

      Another day of struggling to reach 1k WN8... My stats are is free fall.

    3. Snoregasm2


      @Private_Miros yeah, I'd echo what @tajj7 said and take a break/switch tiers (are you still playing tier 10?), otherwise maybe try platooning for a few games? Even if you just go to the same spots, at least you have support if you get into trouble.

    4. LamaLeif


      Hit me up if any of you euros are interested in platooning, I'd be up for mitigating the amount of influence random plebs have on my team.

  11. Welcome, you made your first post in the purple poaster section, where the posts need to be approved. Don't let that form of "censorship" scare you back into the lurk though.

    1. Kuratovsky


      A genuinely warm welcome from the Head Moderator themself, I'm honored! This place truly is a breath of fresh air compared to your average WoT community platform. Regarding the approval needed in that section, I thought it had to do with me being new, but this makes sense too given the standards set there. I'll surely stick around and chime in whenever I can contribute. ;)

  12. Playing tier X some more, and apart from the more shit meta, my biggest issue remains penetrating shots that I easily penetrate when driving a tier VIII tank in a tier X battle.

      Thanks for the link my dude. I try to read every post of kolni because I really enjoy his way of thinking. I'll give it a read.

      I only bought back the PTA because of him. 

    4. ProxyCentauri


      If someone by coincidence happen to read this thread, pls click on Snoregasm's link ^^
      That thread by Yung is pure gold, arguably the best thread regarding tier X play in current meta
      on this forum atm. So much to pick up, not only by Yung but side-comments and self-criticism
      from other good players etc

  13. SU-130PM (normally my go-to money maker) - 7 battles: 37.8% hit rate, only 46% of which in turn penetrated and damaged. Horrible day, and still I'm light blue. How do average players even get worse results?

    1. kolni


      better players fire more shots

      my hitrate/penrate isn't special

      but my amount of shots fired per game is likely 3 times more


      maps with fairly obvious blind bushes i will spend a lot of time spamming shots on reload on when i can't make any active moves

      only drawback is ammo count but that is not a problem for like 90% of the tanks in the game anymore

  14. EU official forums most popular recent thread at the moment is on how a recent mission of getting 2500 damage three times from now until the end of the Christmas special is "near impossible" for the average player. I've never felt so out of touch and elitist before. I'm genuinely unhappy about a battle where I don't get 2500 damage.

      But what if someone on the forum were to say well the average that you should be earning by the time you get to thirty years of age should be $200,000 pa and I cannot understand how people will manage on $150,000 let alone only getting $100,000pa?

    3. Private_Miros


      Not quite the same as income generally doesn't wildly vary per year with even the poorest having generous windfalls and the richest and most competent having 0 income years.

    4. Kymrel


      I wonder what kind of shitstorm will be raised today when the mission is to do 3K damage on a win...

  16. Belgian Christmas corona rules:

    You may invite up to two guests, of which one can use your sanitary facilities.

    1. Show previous comments  7 more
    2. orzel286


      I'd love to see those rules being enforced. Imagine sad government agents checking how many guests you have and then they have to sit there and make sure only one of them can take a dump.

      More seriously: none of their fucking business who and how many get invited; for the second part: law that can't be enforced is null and void. Also: it's unsanitary and pretty much depraves a fellow human of most basic facilities, which is inhumane.

      Stupid, power-hungry cunts in positions of power are way more dangerous than any virus.

    3. Private_Miros


      Ach, it fits Belgium, a country only held together by its inherent surrealism and absurdism (and a good national football team).

      The rules make sense in the way that Belgians always hollow out the rules. So if they make them this that means no one will stick to them because they are ridiculous, but everyone will acknowledge there are rules, and will be satisfied to have broken them. Hence they feel generally fine in being cautious and not inviting too many, and keeping a bit more distance than they would otherwise have.

      In any case no one here has the " Stupid, power-hungry cunts" reflex, let alone that somebody considers the government is a "position of power".


      Basically; if you tell us "be reasonable", our reflex will be "oh things are fine, we can do what we want". If you tell us to do something utterly ridiculous and strict, our reflex will be "ok, let's be sensible". And, well, generally it works.

      @Private_Miros thanks for the explanation, always nice to learn about how different cultures vary in approaches, but I have to say, that is some weird-level national-level reverse psychology at work there lol.

      And why wouldn't there be at least some bias? Clearly we're all degenerates here, while we may not be interested in a Japanese posting about wn8, we appreciate the vast amounts of CULTURE Japan gave us.

  19. Got to love those sessions where you finish top 3 every battle yet drop from 94 to 91 MoE in 10 battles because 400 damage is top damage and xp in a tier 8 game now.

  20. My new favourite pubbie quote:

    "My WR increases by a significant factor when I use repair kits. I don't in 90% of my battles, because I feel that they are intrinsically no different to using premium ammo so prefer not to."

      The taste is unlike anything I have ever tried. It's basically water, onions, shallots, lamb shank, watercress, arugula, cilantro, milk and crumpled barley cakes. With as herbs raw crushed leek, carrot and garlic, and some pomegranate.

  22. It's like with the new notification system and the base flags showing constantly pubbies have discovered there are bases. 10 battles played, only 5 ended with one team having lost 15 tanks.

    Apart from picking your tank, drowning and jumping off cliffs are the only things in this game that you can control.
    Think about that for a second.
    Everything else is manipulated by WG.

    Without implying that all or even a majority of (sub)average players do this, or that no above average players do this, I do believe that generally lower skilled players are prone to drown themselves.

    Added to lower skill level is frustration about having no control about anything in the game (hence why they are (below) average). So the drowning and griefing is one of the only slithers of control they have over their actions in the game. For the rest they are just the playing ball of fortune, teams, MM and RNG.

    Kind of sad, but somewhere understandable.

    1. ZXrage


      I didn't know you get teleported to a random spot every 30 seconds, or that the damage you do to the enemy gets distributed randomly. Truly, the game is controlled by WG.

      Today it seems to be working:



      Third game was potato on Malinovka with a hopeless team though (though I got spotted far quicker than I expected in the bushes camping north spawn from an early lost hill).

      As were the next 6 games, ffs. Just potato by me.
