  1. Every streamer that claimed 50tp = polish defender is a retard. Seriously. This tank is bad.

      @lavawing but the prem round is shit. 243pen on a derpy gun is horrible. I am running food and spamming gold. Sorry but first of all this means the tank sucks against anything heavy above tier8. The tank also can easily be penned frontally by people who aim. 

       

      Also sorry but if all of the skill required for the tank is "where are the low alpha tanks" and blapping them then no it's not a tank for skillfull play and I'd rather do that in a Ferdie.

      In the new MM you hardly even see tanks above tier 8 so that's not the biggest problem I'd say. Now, the prem round is shit but it gives you just a little more reliability especially at mid ranges or beyond. It's hardly an impenetrable tank, but you should be averaging around 0.7-0.9 armour use efficiency depending on how you play.

      On a side note playing slow tanks requires more map reading and planning than tanks that can easily flex. It isn't the most intuitive thing ever, but the Maus (and the IS-4) is or used to be one of the best tanks for winning despite not seeming to require much skill or reward skill much.

      PS I found I performed much better when I played this tank like a damage whore than when I treated as a bona fide frontline heavy.

      @lavawing yeah armor efficency is good. The problem is with armor being hard to maximize and unreliable you don't know what to expect from armor so it makes it hard to plan engagements. Also I know how to play heavies. 

      Not to mention a premium tank that only kinda works when firing premium? Great money maker. Compare this to Lowe, Somua (imho the best premium heavy) and it looks bad. 

  2. It's the long weekend. Theoretically. 400pages of scripts to read only today. Ffs. I like doing the job but we should be more selective of what seems commercially viable.

      I have a few friend who either have just finished their Phd's or will do in a short time so it sounded familiar even if I dropped out of Uni when I realized I don't want to be an electronics engineer. 

      Lit festivals, panels and readings sounds good. I envy the creative freedom or at least the freedom to express yourself even if yeah it goes with pay that's as problematic as mine (though still probably better since not Polish wages). 

       

      Are you planing to be a full time academic or what's the plan?

      Oh i actually dont present too often. Im more on the organization side ;-)  and if need be i have to "host".

      I cant live from it to be honnest, its some pocket money on the side. And it got worse since VW and their disel shit. The first thing that looses monney is always the cultural promotion since big companies and the state have to relocate money for legal expenses...

      I have to work retail on the side to pay my rent .

      For the future i am thinking about the publishing business (but there is also no money so...) but if i could get a culture related job in the public service here in germany  id be pretty happy. wage and pension wise...

    4. hazzgar

      hazzgar

      @Action there is money in publishing. Not great but if you go to a decent company that buys and sells a decent number of stuff you can earn a living. 

       

      I have also assumed what you do is university funded. There you can live pretty well. I have a friend who just handed his PhD paper in Philosophy from Neuro Cognitivism and his life isn't bad financially working in the university. 

       

      Also wait how is VW related with your job? State paid for VW? I get that German pensions are connected to the car industry but VW should take that hit not the country. 

       

      As for culture related job - don't go for public sector. That requires connections. Go for a private job. I know a few people who simply work for movie festivals, pannels etc and have way more time than I do while making better money. Worst case scenario find a job for a movie distributor or a tv channel. ARD has a really strong documentary section and the guy who runs it seemed like a cool guy for the few hours I spent with him during a local festival. Though non movie industries also have some decent jobs. My friend lives in Munich and his roommate is a graphic designer for a radio station as far as I remember and doesn't seem uber poor even though he doesn't seem super well off either. 

  3. Finally got myself ob430. The t9. Whoever claimed here it's balanced needs to take some medication. It's one of those tanks that make the game feel like easymode. Old KV1S. T95 post buff, pre nerf bobject, amx 40. Despite having horrible teams and being too agressive I'm still doing 20% over what I typically do in my t9 tanks.

      Well that's just, like, your opinion man :megadoge:

      I do own one by the way. Played it a decent amount. I enjoy the vehicle a lot, but I'd still rather play a T-54. 

      Kinda miss my old 430 though :(

    3. lavawing

      lavawing

      The tank curves show that it overperforms because it has no stock grind, compared to tanks like the WZ-120 which are basically one endless one. 

      The gun is inconsistent but the problem is that you can't run food to compensate. It's definitely a good tank and a very workable med, but you can get more out of the T-10 or E50 with judicious use of food and gold.

      One reason why it feels like it overperforms for you might be that it's still a good aggressive tank for 2019 meta having a mix of good firepower, armour, mobility and camo/

      Decent armor?  Mine keeps getting penned frontally by tier 7 tanks when they do a auto aim snapshot while driving.  Tier 8 mediums seem to have no trouble penning the hull frontally.  The armor only seems to work well when my hull isn't exposed at all.

  4. I love that MM is programmed to be ironic. Get a good map = shit team. Prok + light = idiots who can't shoot 3 skorpions in the open. Paris + Light = 15:0

  5. Can anyone explain to me the tracking/spotting for MOE? 

     

    Does higher tracking or spotting count per tank or per battle? If per battle then why does the game sum it up as assist?

      EMA = pEMA + k * (CD - pEMA)

      EMA = (Exponential Moving Average) current average combined damage
      pEMA = (previous Exponential Moving Average) previous average combined damage
      k = 2 / (N+1) where N is 100 battles. For this equation N is always equal to 100, therefore k becomes a constant that equals 2/101.
      CD = (Combined Damage) which is calculated by
      (Damage Dealt in Match) + (Maximum Damage by spotting or tracking*) - (damage to allies)

      *To clarify - yes, the game looks at tracking assist and spotting assist and only uses the higher of the 2 values.

       

  6. They are nerfing lower tier jap heavies. Oho gets 5s longer reload AND lower alpha, same for oni. Only O-I gets to keep its reload with lower alpha. While I hate derp tanks they are nerfing them to oblivion. Who will play oho which is already meh when it's that bad.

      Gold ammo nerf doesn't help O-Ho as much as O-I and O-Ni so yea gold ammo changes won't help it as much as it helps the other two. It's still something, though

      Yeah I assume O-I will be a beast with new MM + gold ammo changes.

      I play a couple a games a week just to remind myself how shitty it is.

      Now the next step is the wait for the new patch, block it and not install it. In this way my lazyness to download it will overcome my insane madness to grind to the Leo1

      @Kolni funny thing is I decided to 3 mark the last few tanks before I sell it and as luck has it I had probably my strongest carry in months winning with 0s on the clock. I play better when I want to quit apparently.

      Try playing arty so you can fap with your other hand. :doge:

  8. Ok how do you play the caern? My shells go everywhere but not where I aim them. The armor is trash, the alpha is low, the gun doesnt always track. Are the good reviews from full gold players?

      @Kolni replay pack? Do you think the tank can work decent without full acpr? When I went with more prem I did great with it but the slow standard shell killed me. 

       

      @sohojacques other slow tanks at least have alpha or armor. You sometimes don't have the speed to force a 2 vs 1 trade. I'm at something shit in mine line 1700

      By good I meant they someway prevent camping as you have a retard that can yolo and spot camping tds and kill arty which is always a plus in my book.

      My problem with them is that the high pen HE kills light tanks too easily. Also they take away the one niche LTs had over other tanks which was mobility and camo on the move. Now LTs are faster (not by much) than mediums but with less view range (bar medium tiers) and more view range over cars but less mobility, getting stuck in a wierd master of none situation.

      In WG's retarded mind LTs should be some sort of passive scout which is ridicule as passive scouting works on very few maps and in few situations.

      @nabucodonsor yeah wg's mind really doesn't work when not all lights can work in passive scouting even according to WG principles. ELC even, overal french and RU tanks are fast and can get to a bush fast but Sheridan? LOL.

  16. Have others on EU noticed pubbies recently miss all their shots or stopped taking them? I've been 3 marking more lights since that's my jam and I am way more spot focused than most players (when I was #1 on EU in my amx 12T I had 17% more spots than 2nd best spotter) so it really forces me to change my playstyle when I spot an ISU and T28 prot with their side to our Udes, Kanonenpanzer and Skorpion and for 3 minutes they deal 0 damage to them. 

     

    My best spotting game was 7k in a bc12t in malinovka which is shit given the enemy team stood in the open all the time and I still had to kill 6 of those morons.

  18. I dont get the hype for Caern. Turret gets penned way to often, hull is trash, alpha low, shells slow. It's not bad but alpha is king and it can't trade while the rest is ok and only dpm is great.

      I enjoyed it. I didnt find its alpha too pathetic. 280 but with a 5 sec reload, whereas the T32 gets 320 alpha for 10 secs? 

      Honestly if you compare it to the T32 it excells in basically everything.

    3. hazzgar

      hazzgar

      @MacusFlash if it was slightly faster then it would be good. 

       

      @Assassin7 yeah but then again t32 doesn't get penned in the turret so easily. Maybe I've been unlucky but I feel like my turret stops working above 220 pen

    4. lavawing

      lavawing

      @hazzgar the CAX is slightly faster while worse in other areas. On your second point it's actually more like 250 pen, but guns with around 220 pen usually have around 250 gold pen, and the Caern's turret is mostly flat, so that may be where you're getting this.

      The Cents actually have better turrets than either Caern, and this really shows on the 5/1 which gets a decent upper plate, even if 20-30mms weaker than the Caerns'.

  19. What's with team damage on EU recently? I've been shot 4 times in 6 games. 2 of those because some morons wanted to shoot back at other team damage moron and they mistook me for them. Can WG finally disable team damage?

      I had an STRV 103-0 park in a bush close to my SU TD the other day. When the enemy Grille 15 shot his bush blind and penned him (he was in a very commonly used location), he backed off and shot me, claiming I must have been spotted and gotten him shot. I shot him back and went somewhere else. As I was driving away he went back to the same bush and promptly got killed by the Grille. Team damage needs to be removed. There are just so many stupid players in this game and it becomes just another source of frustration. Don't even mention arty shooting when you are circling a heavy in a light tank or trying to facehug.

    3. Mureke

      Mureke

      Team damage on EU seems to have been getting more frequent.

      When you play lights, you get tk'ed for not spotting a useless flank for campers.

      Play heavies and get shot into the back of the head by careless TDs.

      TDs better not share a firing location with other TDs who aren't into sharing.

      Mediums get tk'ed by lights when you "steal" their spotting, or get pushed around by friendly heavies if you push a flank.

      Arty gets deleted by everyone for being arty.

      I think it was the moon, or the cold, or the weekend.

      I was shot/fucked with/Tked 3 distinct times, on NA.  Prob cant remember 3 other times in past 20k matches.  I do lean toward fire control being an essential skill in-game but somedays the griefing that comes with it makes me reconsider...

      @Balthazars BP is worse. The mantlet doesn't cover the whole turret. you get 140mm armor at t7 and you still get the no alpha gun when the enemy tanks get 320-390 alpha or a tiger I which gets more alpha, pen and dpm. Churchill VII was shit but it was at least at a tier where everyone sucked.

      Eh it was awesome before they nerfed the autoloader and now it's basically just really bad. Imagine playing the Blackdog but you have completely shit alpha instead.. or you're playing an oversized T92. Every other T8 LT has the edge on you

    2. hazzgar

      hazzgar

       @sundanceHelix yeah the t92 loses 50 dpm  and 20 alpha but it's smaller, gets much better bloom, better camo, half the ground resistances (same on soft though), 

       

      M41 90 has more alpha, DPM, penetration, 100 more hp,  and it only pays for it by being slower and having 2 degs less gun dep

  22. Did some retard streamer suggest the only role of a light is to ruin the lives of other lights even if it means dying yourself? jesus  dropped from 92% to 88% on my elc even just because every enemy light wants to ram me even if it means driving in front of 10 enemy guns.
