  1. Reminded myself why I moved to mac  from windows for office and video editing work. Got a 1 vs 1 with some moron. Quicktime popped me out of WoT...

      @Assassin7 yeah I know it's kinda on me but popups still can happen on windows. Can't happen on mac. I know apple is trash ever since Steve died (jesus I was not a fan of the guy but the shift in philosophy is drastic and annoying. Wot post serb like) but at least the OS is comfortable. 

       

      Also I use quicktime on my backup PC I use when the other one is fried. I just do anything to a computer with the cheapest 440GT graphics card, some random ram and 5 discs where 3 work.

      Make a fresh Win install, install full "K-lite-Code Pack" and put VLC player on the machine - end of story.

       

      Quicktime - haven't seen that pest since the days of Netscape and AOL.

      @Folterknecht also 2+2=4. Again I used an old PC. Quicktime was needed for some sites like 8 years ago (When was skyrim released?). Also quicktime not the only thing that can pop you out of a game on win. 

  2. Out of curiosity I checked out the pub forum players who say they are happy with how WoT is going as a counter to the lootbox/is3a/quicky/circon/skill/4tankers outrage. 100% of them are 46% players. I'd call them idiots but then again if all good players quit they might finally get decent stats as a result of their stupid behavior. 

  3. I wonder how WG will react to both QB and Skill heavily criticizing them in a short span of times. No swearing or even irony here so no angle to go after them like Circon or Foch.

      The monkeys do double duty so it's the same thing.

  4. After trying some rentals. Jesus the community is so wrong on what's good for premiums. Somua is amazing. Doing 5k dmg is easy as balls in it yet people undervalue it. On the other hand skorpion now is annoying as fuck to play, WZ120 is ok but still no turret, low hp and derpy.

      I think a lot of people suspected the SM was going to be really good.  Its probably the only tier 8 prem I don't have that is worth buying boxes for this xmas

    3. lavawing

      lavawing

      120 G FT is good on almost every stat except aiming/comfort, just annoying af to play

      Skorp is still king at shitting out damage at longer ranges

      Somua is a bit too derpy for my tastes, but IMO all the tanks you listed are good and better than tech tree counterparts, and it's a matter of preference which one if any you run

    4. Mureke

      Mureke

      The intra-clip reload, clip potential, and DPM of the Somua are godlike. Nice AP pen and gun depression to top it off.

  5. Jesus everyone praised the wz120 TD yet it makes shit money. Like a t7 prem. Compared to Somua or Lowe it's horrible as a money maker and no turret makes is not really fun

  6. I guess wargaming is running Facebook servers now.

      I have bad packet loss for about 45 minutes last night.  I ran a tracert and it lost all the packets 1 hop before the wot server.  Luckily it didn't last all night.

      @NightmareMk9 half of Europe was logged out at around 2pm last night and couldn't log back in on facebook yesterday. Really fun when you're running ads for hundreds of thousands of dollars and you worry you might have been hacked.

      It's probably the only tank that makes me happy to see Ensk.

      Churchill I is pretty solid. Zero usable armor but its gun allows to chew on enemy HP pool quite fast. Before you die you make an important impact. Check my stats on it. 

      Churchill VII is nothing but a freaking nightmare. Slow, armorless, terrible gun. Literally every tank can rekt it. 

      Black Prince has turret and APCR pen. With every possible exp boost you may go through it without any bigger problems. Despite all it flaws it's workable. Barely but workable. Just don't be a unicum focused by 3 sky cancers. 

  8. Instead of buffing the Leopard WG decided to introduce wheeled vehicles. Who wants to bet it's the first vehicle with sub 47% wr on EU once pubbies get to it?

  9. Jesus what is wrong with me. Forgot how to t-10. Used to pull 65% wr. Now on new acc? 48%. WTF. Has the meta changed? Still pull purple on other tanks? 

  10. Fuck arty. One shot from a t8 arty killed 3/5 of my crew in my Lowe. No Loader, Gunner, Commander. also damaged ammorack, gun and turret, then when i fixed the rack oho damages it again. Fun game

    1. Hellsfog

      Hellsfog

      Arty missed so only two dead crew and one module.  Arty is now fixed since nobody complains about it, didnitcha know. 

  11. I love the t10 but jesus why is mine cursed. Do 3-4k dmg almost every battle while being in front get 45% wr for 30 battles because my teams die in most random ways possible. I'd have to have 4k dpm to carry them. 

    1. Haswell

      Haswell

      You're not doing damage in the right places then. Pubshit are pubshit, but you can keep them alive long enough to meatshield for you and push.

    2. hazzgar

      hazzgar

      @Haswell not really. I always focus fire. Kill either the most dangerous tanks or the one low on hp. It's just that its the weekend and I've been geting back luck with some of my tanks so either I get 3/5 heavies in my team redlining or an obj277 literally going kamikaze on 5 enemy tanks in the first minute of the battle. So yeah you are right, SOmetimes I'm not doing damage in the right places because my tanks cant teleport when my team decides to die either by going yolo or by becoming bad movie villains and when I think a flank is won since 8 vs 2 badly positioned tds should be easy I get proven wrong...

    3. sohojacques

      5x weekends...

  12. Foch b is not a good tank but oh how I love when one decides he needs to kill you even if he dies. Great idea WG. 

    1. Hellsfog

      Hellsfog

      Is there another reason to play it? 

    2. lavawing

      lavawing

      drive a Soviet heavy or medium so that you cannot die even when you are killed

  13. Great. Thinking wg. Now when I chose camo I can accidentally take it away from my other tank. A light tank for example. Smart

      @j_galt

       the new "depot" allows you to take camo from another tank when assigning camo to tanks. The problem is it doesn't tell you it did that. The same happens for equipment. It was super fun runing my udes with no camo net, binos and no paint.

      Thanks for the heads up.

      Just checked my garage and I don’t think this is happening to me. Camo I just put on my HWK isn’t available for other tanks. Vanilla client as well.

      I don't like to shoot gold because i'm cheap and poor but jesus. Some kids don't get adults play this game. Also Polish mentality...

      If I had any tank to be bottom tier in, the defender would be it, frankly.

      Progetto/Lorraine40T/Lowe is all you need. Everything else is comparatively bad.

  16. LOL at pubbies complaining about AMX ELC. 70.5% wr at 3 mark point for a scrub like me. 

  17. Pub forum diaries: WG is rigging games because this would make them more money. Yeah there is no proof but you can't disprove it (yeah, lol) and it could bring them money so if it's possible (not sure since WG can't fix MM without rigging ) it must be happening. Jesus my calculator is smarter than most pubbies since at least he isn't prone to being a huge fan of logical fallacies.

  18. If I felt like trading in my elc even 90 - is the Polish t8 or Wz120 TD worth it? 

    1. Deus__Ex__Machina

      Deus__Ex__Machina

      the WZ TD is kinda OP, the polish tier 8 is just a slightly worse defender

    2. lavawing

      lavawing

      WZ TD is stronk but not really easy to play since the gun is derpy plus 1100 HP, but it's definitely a gem in 3 5 7 mm.

      I'd disagree with @Deus__Ex__Machina the 50TPP is a hulldown specialist, kind of like the T34 except with  hull armour, kind of shit pen and poor aimed in accuracy. Pick your fights well, and on a good matchup it will print cash. 

      The Lowe is better at everything the 50TPP does except trading/being sneaky, but 440 alpha that isnt complete potato on a good platform is always worth something.

      I'd rather play the 50TP than the WZ tbh

    3. hazzgar

      hazzgar

      Yeah I had the Lowe on old acc. I know it's great. 3 marking it waas a breeze. Was my first 3 mark but I'm looking for something else

       

      WZ is really OP though? What other trade ins are reasonable? S1 is tempting since I like udes but it's slowish. 

  19. I don't play this game too much anymore but I love trolling pub forums on my temp accounts. Especially when some pubbies tell me I'm shit and they're good beecause they can't copy paste my nick properly. Pub forum is pure entertainment. 

  20. I know it's a long shot but anyone here is a ramen expert and can give me a few pointers about using pig head in mukashii hakata tonkotsu or karume ramen?

      @lavawing Poland is the opposite of Chill. Also I support what @Haswell said about the good side of HK. If you like big cities it's better than most. As for Poland being Chill - we have a ruling party that made EU punish our country with some obscure rule. Every year on 11 November we have an Independence March which originaly was organized by super far right groups and it still kinda is but they are pretending it's not so they attract a bit more sane right wing people. Yet still you sometimes you see flares and fascist symbols. Also Poles complain about everything, they love hating on shit. The local food scene is like 1% of what it is in HK. The job market is shit. Yeah the unemployment is low but that's because of a ton of shit jobs. You either choose money or something interesting. Creatives are getting some decent gigs but most of the high paying jobs in Warsaw are random email forwarding managers in Corporations that set up an office in Warsaw because it's cheaper than Dublin or Amsterdam. There are few decisionmaking positions here in terms of impact outside of Poland. There is an IT boom but most of it is grinding the code not creative work. Also Poles have no taste for quality so a ton of stuff offered and what you see is badly made. Add to that an unregulated advertising market so you have billboards everywhere.

      I am currently trying to move abroad. I have good friends in Warsaw and if you know your shit life here can be comfortable but mostly for the same reason why it's comfortable in cities that offer more. I don't feel like my network gives me work benefits here anymore and a ton of my friends are leaving so I'm trying too. Though yeah if you hate crowds Warsaw is less crowded. Waiting lines for bars and restaurants are still not a thing. 

       

      Also the rest of Europe is way more Eclectic than poland because it's more multicultural. Poland used to be a multicultural country but we were also a country too focused on farming for too long. We were feeding a large part of Europe when they were modernizing and populating their cities. So they have much more culture than us. They also have influences from all over the world, much richer art and culture worlds. Western Europe is actually amazing. Spain is basically like 10 different countries. Same for Italy. Sicily has a great culture but then you have Milan and Florence, cities of great taste, fashion, culture. Also if you want diversity, few crowds and good food just go to Berlin. It's like New York but safer, cheaper, and less crowded.

      @Haswell I wish the hype here produced better ramen. We get the hype with people producing shit. I'd eat in 3 places in Warsaw out of 20-30 offering ramen.

      holy shit hazzgar, you have my sympathies. I've always thought of Poland as that country sitting in the weird intersection between Eastern and Western Europe, and there's a certain romanticism about how the Poles fought Soviet rule, i guess I was looking at it with rose tinted glasses. And i always thought that stuff like burning the gay arch or something every year was the exception not the norm. Agreed on Italy and Spain - but tbh they're places that are great to visit and experience for a while but not nearly half as good to live in.

      @Haswell yeah but I only commute during rush hours :feelsbad:

      The system's as efficient as they get of course but it's uncomfortable as all hell: only place I've had worse was Beijing and that's cause it's running on 30 year old infrastructure on newly converted peasant land. 

    4. hazzgar

      hazzgar

      @lavawing Soviet countries aren't super original either. Most of Eastern Europe is pretty similar. When I watch Latvian movies I see Poland 10 years ago. Russia seems romantic and great and multicultural but that's because it's huge. If I spoke russian I'd visit some remote republics. Overal Poland may not be a racist hellhole like some claim but it's imperfect and crass. We are a developing country with some strange views and tiny pockets of progressivity. I'm lucky enough to have went to an expensive school with artists and shit so I have friends who do fun stuff but I realize my friends and people like them are a tiny % of Poland. Plus it still doesn't help me find a job that pays more than 800$/month

       

      As for living - Spain has a shit job market but if you want to work in cuisine then San Sebastian is the mecca of good food. As for living - Italy for life is good if you live in Mediolan. Good fashion jobs, good weather, the alpes are close, the riviera too. wages and jobs are good if you want a creative job it's a decent place. Just not anywhere south.

      lol, I was spamming it with the 90mm so not a big deal...

       

  22. Is it the 6 skill crew or is the new supposedly worse ELC AMX actually super good T4T? Almost 45% camo with 440vr in a tier where most tanks only get 440 if they run binos? 

     

    Also big gun or small gun? Small gun gets dpm and full rotation and I had a few monster games with it but I'm tempted to go big gun for bottom tier games since pen on the small gun is shit

      Wouldn't call it good, but with skills and the little gun it is still kinda fun.  At least it doesn't break camo if you  traverse the gun too far whilst zoomed out.

    3. Haswell

      I feel like we're eventually getting towards the tank/TD dichotomy debate, so I'll just stop here. All tanks are TDs, but not all TDs are tanks.

    4. hazzgar

      hazzgar

      @Haswell I was not going there. I know elc can be played like a TD but given the crazy camo it can seriously work like a great scout too. 

  23. ELC EVEN 90 advice for 3 marking? Seriously I have resigned and I have no idea how to 3 mark this thing. Am I scouting too much? How to make the gun work. I am stuck at 86-92%. 

    1. hazzgar

      hazzgar

      For the first time in 600 battles under 85% .... WTF

  24. Jesus teams are bad this weekend. Had to pull a radley walters and a kolobanovs in my elc even 90 because my team decided dying is the best way to spend the night. It's surprising how often I get Kolobanovs in my ELC EVEN despite the SHIT gun

      @Assassin7 yeah missions turned people super retarded. I 3 marked my t71cmdt with 52% recent WR on it and I'm an agressive player even when 3 marking so no 3rd line sniping. It feels bad to be on a shit account with no tanks that can push. I'd kill for a good heavium now
