  1. The live version of 9.22 that tanksgg has lists the lower side as 45, so unless you're playing the Japanese 140mm or larger it's Russian bias all around
  2. No engine upgrade has ever made as much difference as on the E50. Wow

      wait till you see the difference between the stock T1 Heavy engine and the top one

      SU-100M1 engine upgrades are huge too, from barely 25 km/h at stock to 50 km/h when upgraded.

  3. I knew IS-4 side armor was good, but not shrug-off-multiple-grille15-heat-without-even-paying-attention good. In love after only a few games.

    Hope it's not just beginner's luck

      its side armour is spaced, of course HEAT is going to get absorbed. 

  4. I thought I knew what camping was

    Then I played ranked battles

      ofc you'll chai-snipe in it, since the 3 best players(by xp) on the losing team get points.

  5. knowing arty is getting changed soom(tm) makes randomly losing half the health of my tank that much harder to deal with in the meantime

      My KV5 got hit by GWP AP twice tonight, so yeah, I know that feel all too well :feelsbad:

  6. I am completely in love with this tank. It was already one of my favorites before the changes and the armor and gun buffs only made it better. The problem is it's so different from anything I've ever played there isn't any reference point on what makes it better or worse than the tanks I have. The VK doesn't seem necessarily "better" than the E5 or IS-7 that have their own strengths, but I can do 400-500 more DPG with 10% better winrate than in either of them with the VK. This makes me think I'm really missing something about driving not-huge-fascist-boxes. Are all 750 guns this easy to use? Are T30/E4/E100 just as brutal getting their gun in the fight despite having less or better known armor? It is the biggest gun I've ever fired in this game (not counting the KV-2). The rhythm of planting very deliberate shots, then having more than 15 seconds to observe the battle and decide who to shoot next flows so well. Being able to change the course of any enemy's game with one shot combined with the sheer scare factor lets you have a huge impact wherever you are. How does the VK compare to the Maus/Type5/PzVII for driving a flank forward? The frontal armor lets it plow into the enemy and lead the team to get the ball rolling on a flank. This is how I've always wanted to play heavy tanks, but except for silly stuff like the KV-220 nothing could do it nearly as well. If @Luna still plans on writing that review they mentioned, I would love to read it.
  7. Discovered the Swede tier 1 can go 90% underwater without drowning, spent 4 hours exploring coastlines. Some of the most fun I've had in this game.

      any interesting micro-positioning spots that can be used?

  8. I was actually pretty surprised to see the E75 getting a handling buff. For having the highest alpha in class it's impressive that the gun isn't derpier than it already is. Not that I'm complaining, just hard to see why the accuracy is what they buff when the fights happen at such close range. This change is to keep it in line with the Mauschen, right? Even after the buff the Mauschen will still have slightly better handling and dpm. Not that that will matter when the E75 moves twice as fast and aside form the cupola has stronger weakpoints. Also since it was mentioned in this thread, optics > vents. E75 scout best scout
  9. Even as the VK is right now, it's usually a better idea to jam the front around a corner than go for a sidescrape. If the weakpoint is the first thing you show while sidescraping, anyone who is baited to shoot a usually invulnerable target like that has a good chance of hitting the weakpoint on accident, and anyone good will just pen it anyway. The front plate buff will just make the playstyle more aggressive.
  10. No tank since the KV-2 has made me giggle as much as the VK 72 does

      Same. just got it, and I love it in its pre-buff state. super troll.

  11. Is this driving of the T95 right or wrong? I don't know what to say

  12. Why doesn't WG give it some kind of frontal weakspot? That's how they've balanced pretty much every other heavy in the game. Fighting the Type 4 and 5 from the front is just a check of whether or not your gold rounds have enough pen. Being completely immune to tier 8s is just creating the same problem that they canceled the VK 100 for, too strong against smaller things and too weak against things can can pen it. If they made say the axle areas weaker, the rest of the tank could be arbitrarily thick without it being broken. That said it's nice to see they're giving it at least some attention after dropping the line on us and leaving it mostly unchanged for so long.
  13. Quietly proud of marking a tier 6. French marks look so great with how bright they are. No one I know understands my love for the ARL. How do I convince them it's OP?
  14. Type 95: 26+1= 27 Literally everything but the alpha is worthless. Being the worst tank in the worst tier is quite an achievementM5 Stuart: 33AMX 40: 8 Sau-40: 20B1: 17Pz 38 Na: 14Pz III K: 20Matilda BP: 22M4 Improved: 18Churchill VII: 1 TOG II: 2-3=-1 ay get to save the TOGBlack Prince:15Type 62: 13 AMX AC 46: 21 Kanonenjagdpanzer: 18AMX AC 48: 17Conway: 8FV4005: 24 The Sau got stealth killed early in the thread. For some reason I can't format it right
  15. Type 95: 23+1=24 gets one-shot by hetzers or any 105. Why even botherM5 Stuart: 30AMX 40: 11B1: 20Pz 38 Na: 14Pz III K: 20Matilda BP: 21.
