  1. I'm up for platooning if you'd like. I have pretty much the same schedule you mentioned, week day evenings and some on weekends. I've been ~95% solo because all my WOT friends are stupid and don't want to switch so friends to pad win% with would be lovely.
  2. When you are playing against competent players willing to spam premium rounds the armor of both the KV-5 and the IS-6 mean little. Playing against pubbies on the other hand I find the KV-5 absolutely stomps face. That is not to say the IS-6 doesn't also stomp face but in racking up damage and wn8 in heavy tanks its all about leveraging your trades and I think the KV-5 probably does that better than any other tier 8 heavy. The KV-5's premium round actually has 2 more pen than the IS-6 so anything you can't pen with the KV you also cant pen with the IS. Everybody and there brother knows to shoot
  3. Hey If there is still a spot open I'd like to join. I'm in the same situation as you, little late to the party so all my friends already have teams.
  4. I also have a Fractal R4 and while it technically says that you can have 120/140mm fans you definitely want the 140mm. I put Cougar cf-v14s in mine and they are pretty good, better than the stock fans, but i've never tried the noctuas so i can't compare them. Cougars are running 18 USD on newegg as apposed to 23 USD for the noctuas .
  5. I'm actually enjoying the Mikhail quite a lot right now, it's a fun ship. First off don't get me wrong, it's not as good as the Atago and it certainly could use a quality of life buff, i.e detection range. I also don't think it's as bad as people are making it out to be and it's closer to being balanced than people give it credit for. Its rudder shift time is no joke ~5.2 secs with equipment means that once you get in the groove you can really start to avoid significant amounts of fire, even at closer ranges. Couple that turn rate with AMAZING gun arcs, you can seriously get both back guns on
  6. Ranked has not gone according to plan so far this season. Last season I started 2 weeks late but I flew to rank 5 with over a 70% win rate. I hit a bit of a wall at rank 5 but managed to re-adjust, probably made me a better player as well, and manged to get rank 1 with a 58% win rate. I was really finding it hard to get motivated with this season coming so close on the heels of last and it seeming like wargaming really half assed the rewards. Ranked started and despite my unmotivated state I gave it a go and fucking hell I can't seem to find any traction, terrible team after terrible team. I'
  7. Yeah your right, I looked it up and the wiki says "Extends firing range of the main battery: +16% to main battery maximum firing range" That would give the Zao a 1.7km invisasniping zone. Damn you and your being all logical and shit. None the less, still reserving judgement until I see it in action, but once I ran the numbers I was pleasantly surprised to see that it seems to be pretty ok, especially since the Khabarovsk can also mount the "Gun Fire Control System Modification 2" which pushes its invisasniping range to a zone 5.58 Km wide.
  8. The Zao has a surface detection range of 12.6, -12% for a fully kitted out commander and we have 11.09km detection range. The Zao has a 16.2 km gun range and CAs generally have a ~+6km detection range after firing. A 17.09km detection range after firing means no goldilocks zone for the Zao. I haven't got a Zao yet so I'm not sure if it gets and module that can increase gun range but the point remains, if you fire your guns you will be spotted. The Khabarovsk has a 9.0km detection range, -10% for a fully kitted out commander and we have 8.1km detection range. The Khabarovsk has a 13km base gun
  9. Wow, that got snippy real quick. Well sir here is the point where I also have to call bullshit, documentation or GTFO. I have tried to look up these side shirt upgrades you keep mentioning and can find nothing on the subject. Please enlighten me, I honestly would like to know. Here is the link to the Rita post I mentioned above for your info. I put in THAT photo because it was the one that clearly had the ultrasound markings on the spaced armor, as I said take it with a pinch or two of salt if you wish. Also that link took me all of 30 seconds to look up, I suggest you do the same next time be
  10. This a picture of the exact IS-3(M to be precious, which is the upgraded version you mentioned) that wargaming used to make the HD version of the in game IS-3, at least according to Rita's blog so take that with however much salt you will. You can clearly see the markings where ultrasounds were taken along the spaced armor panels. Also please take note of the rusted through spaced armor panels. Now do though panels look like 30mm to you? Also note that no other part of the tank seems to have rusted through, even the clearly not 30mm brackets above and to the left of the are still very much int
  11. So yeah, I'm just going to leave these here. Oh and for reference to the non metric speaking world on my shitty 1600x900 work pc screen 3cm is about ----------------------- long
  12. ...........Did you even bother to try to understand the point of my post?
  13. Wow, way to be a condescending jackass. I think it is pretty known by now and most people are well aware that the 120mm ufp stated in books like Ogorkierwicz's Cold War Hot Science, 2001 isn't the true armor value of the tank. This is not new information and has already been discussed ad nauseam. What I WAS referring to by saying it had Russian bias armor values was the tendency of Wargaming to choose a tank and absolutely and categorically insist that that tank must be real and have its historical armor values even to the extent of sending people multiple times to get the most accurate readi
  14. The FV215b's gun and ammo type are already better than this and it has remained so for quite some time without a nerf. The accuracy and aim time of the Chieftain are slightly better but the bloom values which are the real indicators of how good a gun is are on average between 15-20% worse on the Chieftain, and that is with the Chieftains turret turning 4.5 degrees/sec slower than the FV's (that's not to say the Chieftains are bad at all, just giving a point of reference). The Chieftain NEEDS an amazing gun to compensate for the all or nothing nature of its Russian bias armor values so I really
  15. DON'T DO IT!!!! Says the guy who just threw his wallet at the screen 5 mins ago to pick up this package.
