  1. My big winners are definitely TDs and LTs this patch. 268v4 as seen above, ha! But also the Grille and especially the SU-130PM which is now better than the Skorp by a wide margin. IAU and IRM - then choose turbo, rammer or binos depending on your style. Personally turbo works best for me because I can make good use of positional flexibility. Waffle 4 also. The T49/Sheriderp flexibility is great too - i take bond vents and bond vstab and then the vision slot gets what suits my platoon. Optics for big view range, IRM for hilarous gun handling. CVS also viable since the view ranges are 480 and 491 with bond vents.
  2. I uhh, forgot to change it from trying to do a Chimera internal crits mission. By the time I'm flanking the SuperC and shooting the 704 I'm legit conserving HEAT shells to secure the top gun. Mistakes!
  3. The same way(s) i told you 5 years ago. Or whenever it was. Certainly been a minute.
  4. I've mounted full improved equipment on this to have a T49 with terrible MM to grind bonds with. I use ivstab, ioptics and irammer to get 550VR - tons of passive spotting and outspotting EBRs. I use both guns. The 105 for scavenging and the 152 for control. Kemp boosh, hope your team can pick off the EBRs. It's fun in either mode. Just accept that you can't brawl EBRs or T-100s and that the Leo1 is now 2x the tank you are. With a camo directive you at least can sneak some places a Leo1 can't... http://wotreplays.eu/site/5408916#studzianki-crabeatoff-xm551_sheridan
  5. It scales by tier I suppose. 460-470 would be where I'd feel good in tier 6 and consider switching to gld...but it's definitely a playstyle thing.
  6. EVEN90 with full improved is lulzy. EBR105 and 75 are good times. The Hwk30 surprisingly good. T-100LT and 13 105 also a blast.
  7. I like it. 370 VR and more camo than the Type 64. Reload gets to 6.7 with food and BiA. I use binos, rammer and optics right now, but a gld would be valid. Shells speed is acceptable. The smallness is really nice for getting into corners and poking behind small bushes. 508 VR with binos right now. With recon training it might have enough VR to use optics only but as a turreted TD you keep binds up lots. Like the hellcat it's a wanker not a medium but current tier 6 mm means you're fighting 7s or 6s where 221 pen is enough. It moves like an old LT before the across the board hp/t buffs. 1500 dpg thus far with no real dmg farming skills. 67% wins in 15 games because @sr360loves2throw sometimes. It'll settle in the low 70s. Optimal platoon with a VR stacked Type 64 and a Strv 42-57 for 80% wins
  8. Single best use of bonds in WoT is of course ivstab on the T49. I've really really enjoyed my fully improved Even90. 498 VR and 46% camo is hilariously unfair.
  9. There's a lot of things that are much better than the past. But the complaints of this thread are pretty valid. 10s are not good times. I just play tier 8 LT + TD combos and win 80% so I'm having fun...but i realize people might want to branch out beyond that sometimes.
  10. It's been a bit crept by these other premium LTs. Buffing it to 65 kph would help. Same with 170 alpha shells, or an autoloader at 150. The gun , camo and VR hold up reasonably well under this revised MM though. Crab Tier 8 LT power ranking: EBR = EVEN 90 > Hwk30 = 432 > M41s = T92 Even the bottom tier ones are pretty good.
  11. Chang reminded me of the details we'd discussed. Having 3 levels of alpha and pen specifically. We'd discussed something like a short 105mm with AP/HESH/HE at tier 8. 190/170/90 pen and 300/360/410 damage. A shell for each situation but an actual choice on how much damage and reliability. Meaty hits but lower dpm. Maybe 2100 at peak. 10s base reload, 6 rpm. That was for Senlac. Give the 9 a longer 105, Charioteer gun as the base APCR/HESH/HE. 232/210/105 mm pen. 360/480/510 dmg. You get the EBR 105 memes on a far less mobile tank and without the godly gun handling. Reasonably good base APCR. Low caliber though so the splashes won't be crazy. And then a 5.5 at tier X. AP/HESH/HE. 250/200/90. 500/660/750. The lower pen is made up by better caliber and non pen splashes. To quote Chang, based on what we know works with the EVEN90: "And it gives a bit more of that spike that's needed for a low dpm, aggro bush sitter (even 90)"
  12. Without like..the burst, or the size protection. @TheChang and i were talking about this yesterday - it definitely looks like trash. They already have a "high" pen derpy 390 alpha LT at tier X, its the 132-1 and it's the worst. This will be a slightly improved version of the 132-1, but still terrible because more fragile and 6200 max damage. The blurb makes it clear that WG still has no idea what LTs do, or should do, at a given time, or how the decisions of a LT driver are influenced in a given battle. And this design is a return to the original release of the tier X LTs, when they were frankly trash (360 alphas, no ammo capacity). Now - do i think they'll up it to like 24 rounds at release? Hopefully. And that will help a little, but it'll still be totally undistinguished. It's fairly disappointing that WG passed on the chance to make an interesting LT concept. The old-school VK2801 is dead and ready to be resurrected in the form of a HESHer LT series. Again Chang and I were theorycrafting this, and thought that having a set of LTs where HESH was the primary balancer would be a lot of fun. Guns with high calibers, normal AP rounds, and then lower pen HESH rounds with big damage, and then a cheap HE round for splashing. Imagine if the tier X were running a version of the Conway 5.5 gun for example. Say 500 dmg on the AP round, 660 on the HESH. 250 Pen on the AP, 200 on the HESH. A 90 pen 660 HE round as well. Then sub 2k dpm (16s base reload maybe) would be justified, as would 0.38 acc and poor aim times. You'd have an extension of the T49/VK2801 concept but with *gasp!* ammo choices that matter. It wouldn't be OP but would actually bring back a LT flavor that is actually fun and effective.

      I am back to WoT, occasionally the labs.

      T49 gifs when @TheChang and I find the time.

      Frontlines is horrifically boring, I would much much rather play pubs. 

  14. Hey this is a pretty good thread. MOTHERFUCKING NECRO Hi!
