  1. If u think WoT  can't get any worse today I found a bot that decided to push me all game then go AFK after I died. Seriously.

  2. How do u play steel hunter? Every time i win a 1 vs 1 3 morons pop out to kill me, avoiding people is impossible. WTF?

      In the BR world, these are referred to as "Seagulls" or "3rd Party". Basically you have to learn to play around that situation because its a fundamental part of any BR, simply due to it being an effective strategy to jump into an existing fight and use your superior HP pool and element of surprise to clean up the scraps and take the spoils for yourself. 

      Ideally you want to be very aware of your surroundings when taking any engagement, keep expecting the seagulls to arrive. Try and stay slightly detached from engagements so you can dip out of them if needed and rotate to put the other guys "in the middle" so to speak. YOU want to be the seagull, think like a seagull, be opportunistic. Look for easy/weak targets, pick on other fights and always shoot the guy who has the upper hand in a fight so that you can weaken them both as much as possible. There's no point seagulling a fight and shooting the 1HP target who was fighting a full HP guy, because now you have 1 full HP tank left and you just gave him the loot so you accomplished nothing other than advancing 1 position. Shoot the higher HP and that way you are basically working together with the weaker guy to punish the stronger one, with the goal of both of them dying and you can swoop in for a double bag of loot.

      I'm not speaking from a heap of steel hunter experience but more from my roughly 6-7k hours in the BR genre. They're all the same, save for their individual metas, the core meta stays the same in BR.

      While all of what Pity says is true, I think with SH you just have to accept that sometimes you're going to have to get stuck in and you'll get picked off because the game-mode is just that shitty. It really, really isn't helped by the vision mechanics where you cannot even tell someone is there unless you ping them on the radar or have direct line-of-sight and are actually looking at them, so if they position right it is simply impossible for them to not get the jump on you.

      I take back everything I said, people are just blatantly teaming in every game on NA now. Fuck this mode.

  3. Anyone else get this weird bug when locking autoaim where it locks and unlocks for 1 click?

    1. Rexxie

      Rexxie

      Do you have it set to a mouse button (mmb) or a keyboard button? Try rebinding it to the keyboard if its on your mouse to see if it still happens. Usually the MMB doing multiple inputs per click is the first thing that goes wrong on a worn out mouse. If you have it on KB already then I have never seen that!

    2. hazzgar

      Good point. I'm using an office mouse since I am investing 0 in my gaming laptop given it's largely unproductive

  4. People are morons. In the last 4 days 3 different flats in the vicinity of my window decided to have a Karaoke Party at 1/2AM. 2 of them had morons who decided to argue with me. First was that my throwing pebbles at their window to make them notice was "trying to break the glass" with some stupid cunt saying "she has a father in the police" and 2nd had some annoying npc looking dude complaining that I wasn't nice to him. Like seriously what did he expect me to be when he opens the window and sings? A box of chocolates? It's good I no longer have an ax in my flat. Disturbing sleep is the only thing that brings out a murderer in me. 

    Seriously have a party on the weekends. I get that. People need to party but FFS not in the middle of the night during weekdays. Not singing sitting literally on the window inside an appartment building complex backyard that echoes. Fuck people

  5. I'm a retard. Seriously I am. 300 battles in an LT432 and I went from 65 to 55% Win rate trying to 3 mark it. Every good battle is followed by 5 battles of -0.5% on marks.  I should uninstal. FFs i 3 marked better tanks but this one makes me a moron.

    1. PityFool

      PityFool

      I also perform poorly in it. I don't know why, I just don't "feel" the tank.

    2. hazzgar

      hazzgar

      @PityFool It's just the only really abusable thing on it is the DPM. Everything else is strong but the tank shines when it can bully but that means lower hp pool. So what you deal 3.3k dmg when that rises your marks by 0.1-0.2%.  I seriously think I will 3 mark the WZ T8 TD before it and that's a way less reliable tank. 

  6. Did defender get powercreeped or am I just getting horrible rng?

    1. RedwoodOriginal

      RedwoodOriginal

      Blame RNG, my 252u is good as it was before patch.

    2. lavawing

      lavawing

      it's not as good as ever, it's better than it ever was - being in a fast superheavy with 1650 HP wins more games than with any other prem you can buy

    3. RedwoodOriginal

      RedwoodOriginal

      @lavawing i need to try that, i installed improved rotating mechanism(or whatever it is) and so far i like it.

  7. So did the vert stab nerf come into place? It seems i cant hit shit but the new patch has turned players into insane morons so its hard to play anyway

    1. Rexxie

      Rexxie

      vstab hasnt changed

    2. hazzgar

      Ok. So it's just the gun that gives me a giant fu. Then again IS6 penned me with standard ammo 3 times in a row. Frontally so yeah.

    3. hazzgar

      hazzgar

      Also bugi 17% wr over 20 battles. Someone is trying to tell me to quit wot

  8. I get that Wot is getting worse but holly fucking shitballs. -5% on Marks in 2 days. Maybe 2 games with major mistakes. It's just impossible to carry. Either your team rolls or doesn't shoot what is spotted or your team gets rolled so fast you cant farm on their deaths. WTF.

    1. Jesse_the_Scout

      Jesse_the_Scout

      At least on NA I'm pretty sure it's all kids. No school due to COVID, so the parents are all letting them play video games 16 hours a day until their little brains melt. Every game is just a yolothon, I'm mostly playing other games until it's over.

    2. hazzgar

      hazzgar

      @Jesse_the_Scout heaviums will work now. Every time when the game goes nuts heaviums work

  9. Jesus. I love the time when players try to understand shifting meta. 2100 dpg in lt432 still nets me 40% WR over 20 battles... 

    1. GehakteMolen

      GehakteMolen

      yday 46% after 35 games or so, GG (and my mm with the polak t8 heavy was actually quite good, not much arty a lot of top tier...)

      losing 3 tanks in 1 minute who try to catch a lynx, howboy...

    2. Jesse_the_Scout

      Jesse_the_Scout

      Game is completely fucking unplayable now.

    3. hazzgar

      hazzgar

      Yeah i love going from 92 to 89% on marks on a tank that suits my playstyle and when I don't make mistakes and play well. WTF WG. Also 5 skill crew, food, improved equipment on a light and so yeah makes sense the games are shit...

  10. The New Polish t6 med is a bit insane. They nerfed it but still - It gets a 300 AP DMG alpha derp with 168 PEN!!! and 2800 DPM (maxed but still).

      I'm about to catch BUGI fever

  11. I love those days - "hey 2 marks on this tank happened super fast. Lets go for 3" then I go to 90 and i get a string of full he foch teams and drop 5% in one day.

  12. Good start with the Leo 1. 3.3 dpg is shit but more importantly 33% wr. FUN

  13. Buy a new phone

      Mexico of Yurp makes more sense imho since we get a ton of English speaking turists coming to our country to get drunk and we manufacture a ton of cars for the continent. We also had a quasi empire but were also conquered.

  14. Those 3 mark differences are ridiculous. Leo PTA is 3900 on EU. Jtiger is 2950. How are people so bad on a 350 pen 560 alpha, high as fuck dpm tank with 2100 hp?

      I'm p sure a good chunk of unica aren't going to touch the JT because it's sluggish and suffers from Noturret Syndrome.

    3. hazzgar

      hazzgar

      @ZXrage I agree though I'd argue Jtiger is underrated. Hp is an asset. The tank is not superheavy slow nor has idiotic no camo so it's not always spotted at 445m. I'd argue it's a rather strong vehicle. Pulling 3.2k-3.5k dpg in it is not hard work really.

    4. hazzgar

      hazzgar

      Lol 2900dpg in June = 6th on EU by dpg. So no good ppl must be playing this. Especially since I played like a shitter in June.

  15. I'm starting to understand why do shitters enjoy the game despite their horrible performance. As I've been getting better (thanks wotlabs) I expect more and more from myself but while I'm not near any top purples I notice I'm satisfied with fewer and fewer results. 3800 DPG session in a JTiger feels meh since there were no monster battles there. I just did what I expected. A few 5-6k battles, a few worse ones but I'd probably be only really happy with a monster carry.

    On the other hand when I was a shitter even doing 3-3.5k in a t9 tank was a celebration. You are happy with less so it kinda makes sense shitters still play the game despite bad results

      I think the ``addiction`` of wot is that when you hit somebody, you see a number, the better you are, the more and bigger the numbers, so its a rat race (more or less) and you also play for yourself, to unlock new tanks, drive classics from ww2 etc (i got a ton of games in stuff like JP and KT, because i find them relaxing to play)

      So even baddies, who get crap dmg, just drive around, shoot people and once in a while they get a good game because of sheer luck (thats why the RNG will always stay, its so bad player can beat good players and highest winraito a triple unicum platoon can achieve is 75%, while even the reddest red will win 30%)

       

    3. hazzgar

      hazzgar

      @GehakteMolen one thing I also noticed is some yellows and greens might even get more chances for monster games simply because they are useless early on and can carry against incompetent enemies while purples usually have a big enough impact vs bad teams that the situations where they are alone vs incompetent hordes are more rare.

    4. Tman450

      Tman450

      in conclusion, this game sucks. stay away.

  16. How not to hate the t92? It loses money, it bounces off other lights, it has no alpha and it's slow. FFS. 

    1. MagicalFlyingFox

      MagicalFlyingFox

      Not sure if it will make you not hate the T92 but you could try playing the Bulldog to remind yourself how bad it could be instead?

      Step 1. Pray for a good scouting map

      Step 2. Cry when you don't get it

      Step 3. Play something else

       

      as much as I liked it as a crew trainer for my T49... it's just not effective in about 75-80% of the maps in the game

  17. So what are the consensus best prems right now? 

    I'm a bit underwhelmed by the LT432 so what do purpls run?

    I am super happy with Renegade and Wz120 TD, Bourrasque seems really fun. Defender and IS3A are good but I assume purples would do better in more reliable tanks. Also Somua due to the gun being way better than any other FR autoloader?

      It shoots the ground a lot. The key is to shove the gun barrel into the enemy tank before shooting.

    3. sr360

      sr360

      The Bourrasque is king. Progetto isn't far off. EBR 75 is insanely fun.

      @sr360 i can't stand the wheelies and I say this as someone with 700 games in the T10 one. Driving wheeled tanks is just annoying with them bouncing off random stuff. 

       

      I Wish I had Bourrasque. For now I have to enjoy LT432/Renegade/Wz120 as my go to good prems. 

  18. Lol. The high risk spot play on highway literally breaks the map if u have enough td's. Enemy has to either forgo town or die. 

    11k combined in an LT432 is nice.

      @Snoregasm2 yeah marks % is not even what frustrates me. I'm on a low number of battles but the tank rarely gives you the feeling you are carrying or that you have a huge advantage. I get that it wins a lot but it doesn't seem as fun as it should. 

       

      As for tryharding - wait for a TD top of the tree and go for vision. 

    3. Kymrel

      Kymrel

      I'm surprised you feel that way about the 432. It is a really good scouting tank, fast with good camo, has some armor, a bit of gun depression (bizarrely) can bully other lights and laugh when they shoot HE or even bounce off the front. The low alpha is annoying but the rest of the package is just soooo good.

    4. hazzgar

      hazzgar

      @Kymrel I get that. I just don't know why it's not working for me. I'm at 2950 combined which is rather meh

  19. Finally 3 marked the tank that trolled me so damn hard. Leo you low roll machine. I love u even if u hate me

    2. hazzgar

      hazzgar

      @Kymrel yeah the tank and me we have a love hate relationship. I went to 93.5% 2 times. went back to 88% and then I went from 88% to 95.4% in 3.5h. 

       

      Also vision build > Damage build. Games when steamrolls happen you can yolo for spot dmg and the extra dpg from vents wont make a difference. Also 3/5/7 games when you are top tier don't have enough HP to farm unless you literally have a team of morons and solo carry. With a few lights and td's on the team the HP pool is low and it's often hard to get over 4.5k dmg. 

    3. Snoregasm2

      Snoregasm2

      Well done mate.

      Although I disagree on the vision build.

  20. I swear premium leo shells have a different autobounce angle they bounce so often of soft shit. I've never been trolled so much as with the leo. Jesus

     

    I swear shitbarn is more reliable. The tank is good but the shells and the gun troll the user like they were t5 derp cannons

  21. Rage Against the Machine fans discovering the band is political are my favorite thing on the internet.

      @hazzgar, it'll be interesting to see if you can 3 mark running a spot build on the Leo. I got to 94% just maximising damage (it was like 4.4k dpg over 2 sessions) but the same thing happened -  a few bad games knocked me down to 92%. Left it for now as I'm out of chocolate.

    4. hazzgar

      hazzgar

      Fuck. 92.7-90.6. Whole day like this. I go up gun starts trolling me and I start making mistakes

  23. 2 Chieftains, Skoda t50, T54, T44 and T49 have enemy cap in view range. The only 2 tanks remaining alive on our team are me in PTA and some guy in LT432.

  25. New account and for some stupid reason struggling with HT-12. What tanks currently still work for the mission ? VK1001p is no longer getting shot at so even if it wins it doesn't bounce.

      Are you being too effective with your armour usage on the VK? I just got through several bouncing missions with it. Nice thing about box tanks is you can bait shots by giving pubbies a sniff at penning you (unlike T29, etc), then leaving it to rng...
