  1. Not confusing, just no clue what your are talking about. Who is luthrior? And what is this screenshot you are referring to?

    Onto more amusing matters...

    Would someone be so kind as to PM Tanitha and ask wtf is going on? Possibly McMole Chappo and whomever else was in there and well aware of what the thread was, what it was called, and what the mods changed it to. I can't even PM or check my notifications.

     

    Image link is http://www.mediafire.com/convkey/b8da/7fd66i63cua06b46g.jpgif you don't feel like doing the ding.

     

    Anyway, wtf is going on with an admin killing my account for a week? If the VN server is really that fucked up that they don't have a clue what is going on with their admins and mods, then i think we have been too nice about our approach to VPA and the rest of the VN mob.

     

    Quite honestly, i don't know if they could have made it worse even if they wanted to.

     

     

    this guy )oh wait his name is Nightmare_luna  only his forum name is luthrior?

  2. Say what?

     

    that image is a screen shot from luthrior's machine he posted it a while ago.. It has no bushes. Ie he has no bushes intefering with his view.

     

    edit: I am at a loss as to why this question is so confusing. The question is are you allowed to have a mod that removes all the bushes from the map? Yes or NO. The reason I want to know is because the illustrious luthrior (an extreme purple regular here at wotlabs) does exactly that and has admitted to it. Yet it doesn't seem to cause a ripple here at wotlabs. Which makes me wonder does everyone do this?

  3. It even appeared they cloned arty... \o/

     

    They are taking votes on how to implement arty or even if they should. They are actually doing a survey on it. Also they admitted they copied WOT arty as a place holder for the pre-alpha. Arty is not going to be anything like that in final game (at least that is what they are saying). If you don't want arty in AW go vote!

     

    As for it having the same retards in game as wot. Yeah it will but at least we all be new together so it isn't so blatantly annoying.

    Here you go boys 

     

    "I already asked yesterday. 

    Warpack is only mod. it helps making it easier for players, but it makes it too easy, which IT CAN BE LISTED under cheating categories. It makes all the stats visible and WG hidden(enemies reloading time, directions of gunpoint, type of fired bullets...also hidden). In conclusion, its not a hack. This mode is not yet listed as a banned thing.

    So brothers,  we know what to do!!!"

     

     

    This 100% correct translation.

    Sorry didnt read it carefully.so i missed out a few words :)

     

     

    I love to see the screens of these guys. No Bushes lazers pointing everywhere.. would be kind of trippy. Fucking assholes!

    quite frankly cheating is probably just endemic in WOT. I have always thought it is a small subset that cheat but the more I think about it I bet a large subset of people who are not red are probably cheating one way or another. Once you start to know about mods/xvm etc I think that is when the seed planted. It is just human nature I even saw a screen shot by Luthrior or whatever his name is here on wotlabs had all bushes gone. That is supposed to be illegal yet it hardly caused a stir at wotlabs.

     

    The funny thing is he put that pic up to name and shame another player LOL!

     

    edit: here is the pic 

  5.  

    So my other viet mate said hes not very good at reading viet so I would not use hes below comments as proof of anything

    just emailed my mate at work and hes gonna translate it for me and emial me back later on today 

     

     

    Trong Truong

    they saying its legitimately ok to use

     

    since its not considered as a hack

     

    from the officals but who knows

     

    i wouldnt use it anyway

     

    seems dodgy to m

     

     

     

     

    What is legitimate to use?

  6. It is, it definitely is.  And the number of bots in the mid-tiers (are they bots? or just really really bad? regardless sub 100 WN8 players) can be frustrating at times, but personally, knowing both, I don't think I would deal with the reroll, grinding all the tanks again, rebuying premium, and dealing with at least 220 ms ping (sometimes it jumps to over 300 baseline ping and at that point you just can't play period) to taste the difference.  Plus the guy wants strongholds and clanwars and maybe platoons? and I think a lot of the clans wont' be active when he's on unless he has a weird daily schedule.  The entire reason I changed to SEA was to play Clan Wars because I couldn't find a clan in NA that suited a normal schedule.  The time zones in NA for clan wars are  11pm GMT to 3 AM GMT which is 10 am to 2 pm for Sydney.  

     

    Watch Barks_Internally's stream http://www.twitch.tv/barks_internally he plays from Adelaide at 230ms ping when streaming and he does REALLY well. Personally I get 170ms ping to NA west from Brisbane using Telstra cable. I have iinet at the office and it is pretty bad to NA and even SEA seems to get more packet loss than my bigpond cable.

     

    The big difference is the packet loss. The Rubber banding that we take for granted when playing on SEA is non existent to NA west. East is also better but the ping is a bit too high. I have done multiple traceroutes from iinet, bigpond and TPG and they all say the same thing. Packets start disappearing when they hit Singapore. You would be surprised just how high the average packet loss is. It is about 30% on average but there are times when it is 50%. You don't realize just how bad it is until you start playing NA.

     

    As for re-rolling I agree with you, I am not going put all that effort in and spend money on another account. I will be playing non premium and I imagine I will get tier 8 max. I am happily working towards the bulldog  and I may leave it at that. The t67 is proving lots of OP fun and if the pixel tanks actually had a German crew I could train up I would get the RU.

     

    Incidentally if you are going to reroll now is the time. Just pixel tank for the win. My USA crew are working their way through the 4th perk and my russian and french both have 2 perks and working through 3rd. Even if you think there is a slight chance you might eventually reroll NA play the pixel tanks now and get the crews ready.. Then let them sit there until you are ready.

     

    I feel sorry for the guys who started on NA and were lured to SEA under the false pretenses. They really should be allowed to move back to NA but Wg being the arrogant dickheads they are won't allow it. Even though they have basically ripped these guys off.

     

    edit: incidentally barks tried rerolling SEA and came up against the wall of rubber banding/packet loss and half bot teams and gave up on the place. He did ok while he was there though.

  7. I play on both NA and SEA, trust me, while the difference may have been night and day when SEA first opened, the gap has closed considerably.

     

    The pubbie skill level on USWest is barely any better than SEA, USEast is considerably better but the ping an make that server difficult for people in the SEA region.

     

    People claiming that NA is so much better than SEA are likely basing that opinion on playing there 2 years ago, much has changed in those 2 years.

     

    Na IS better than SEA. For the simple reason you can ask at the start "anyone rushing hill?" and you will get a "fuckoff noob" back instead of @#$$%%^. Yes you have some skillful people at SEA but the cohesion is better at NA when you get to mid to upper tiers than it is at SEA. Yes NA players there is worse than NA west and it is called the SEA server.

     

    Also you rarely get bots at NA, you still see them at SEA and you rarely get a game (once past the gold seller tier) where a tank doesn't leave cap (even it is just to move to the corner to snipe). At SEA I still regularly see up to 4 premium tanks just sitting at cap collecting credits.

    The 4 minute battles is another thing. I don't think that's entirely on XVM but also a thing with the insane power creep of this game. Conq GC, FV 183, Waffle E-100 for instance are just broken tanks and neither should be in the game. They add crazy amounts of RNG and either you get annihilated in a second if you get spotted or the dude misses and gets annihilated in return because his slow/paper tank gets spotted across the map. Stuff either has over the top alpha, a shot arc that let's you one shot almost every tank or a clip nowadays... It's like some kids are in charge of this game thinking "wouldn't it be amazing if that thing had this huuuuuuge ass cannon and could like wreck everything else with one shot? Like wouldn't that be super cool?"

     

     

    The 4 minute battle is exactly what WG want. The quicker you are back in the garage buying gold rounds/food/med kits the sooner you are going to realize that tier 10 cannot be run without a premium account and you buy one. Happened to me. I rushed up to the t57 without a premium account or spending any gold.. Yes the crew was terrible. It only took me 10 games in the t57 to realize it was unsustainable and I should have spent real money keeping my crew in top condition and making the credit drought more tolerable.

     

    4 min games is exactly the type of game WG wants because it gets us shitters spending money.
