  1. 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.
  2. EVEN90 with full improved is lulzy. EBR105 and 75 are good times. The Hwk30 surprisingly good. T-100LT and 13 105 also a blast.
  3. 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
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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)"
  8. 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.

      Are you playing Frontlines?

      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. 

  10. Hey this is a pretty good thread. MOTHERFUCKING NECRO Hi!
  11. 1.0 removed my ability to play WoT without investing in a PC upgrade - which isn't of great interest to me right now (mind you my internet is very shoddy). I didn't stop playing because I don't like WoT, or because i found particular fault with the community - it just upgraded past my ability to run it. I'll also share that@dualmaster333 has sold his PC parts and turned off his home internet. The era of the original chode$tarz has passed it seems.

      Aw, man.. I was wondering why we hadn't seen you in a while. 
      @CraBeatOff, hope to see you back before too long. Thanks for all of the encouragement and advice up to now.

  13. @dualmaster333 gets credit for this Obj 263/263B (Tier 9 TD) Front: Splash engine deck (30mm) Sides: HEAT (80mm everywhere) Rear: HE/HEAT (50mm, avoid hitting spoiler) Summary: Load HEAT because you can always take the side if you can't get the booty Obj 268v4 (Tier 10 TD) Front: Upper plate (100mm) or splash deck Sides: HEAT for rear half of superstructure, everything else HE Rear: Huge 45mm goodness Summary: Just throw HE at it Obj 430 (Tier 9 medium) Front: Steeply sloped portions below the turret are only 40mm Sides: HE for splash Rear: HE (40mm hull butt, 63mm turret back) Summary: HE effective from all directions Obj 430U (Tier 10 medium) Front: Deck is only 30mm, splash if you can Sides: Spaced armor above tracks, no good shots Rear: 45mm booty, 63mm flat box on back of turret Summary: HE all day, erry day IS-M (Tier 8 heavy) Front: 40mm deck, everything else is thick Sides: Thick armor everywhere, 120mm above tracks possible to HEAT but not very large Rear: HEAT, sloped 80mm hull, 120mm turret Summary: HEAT for butts, otherwise HE and "nice angling bro" Obj 705 (Tier 9 Heavy) Front: 40mm deck, 60mm roof, thick everywhere else Sides: Spaced above tracks, steep angles, just stick to HE Rear: HEAT! 60mm hull, 70mm turret, too sloped for HE but large and HEATable Summary: HEAT for butts! Obj 705A (Tier 10 Heavy) Summary: Same story as 705 - HEAT for butts! Obj 257 (Tier 9 Heavy) Front: Nice 45mm sloped sections under mantlet Sides: Some space armor, not good HEAT territory Rear: HEAT for large, sloped 70mm butt Summary: HEAT for butts
  14. Who is trying to 1v1 other LTs? Since when is hp trading in a vision/camo class with hp and no capacity to bounce a good idea? Does anyone who is objecting to this tanks strengths watch my replays? How many replays do I need to post? @tajj7 did you watch the replays? Almost every objection I read makes some fundamentally wrong assumption - like that there's no vision on Ruinberg and Ensk or that 7% camo is basically nothing.
