  1. 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%)

      @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.

      in conclusion, this game sucks. stay away.

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

      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

  3. 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.

      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. 

  4. 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

  5. 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.

  6. 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

  7. 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

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

  9. 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.

  10. Jesus T92 Light is a bad light. The low alpha gun I can get but the 60kph speed cap is moronic. This makes the tank not much faster than many same tier meds.

  11. 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.

    1. echo9835

      echo9835

      I had some recent success with the VK-4502B at tier 9. You can even drag your crew over.

    2. sohojacques

      sohojacques

      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...

  12. Is current frontline meta - u defend u get steamrolled or did i get a string of idiotic teams ?

      Seems a bit like it, on defence it seems like get rolled and desperately try to rank up by spoiling cap as long as possible unless the attacking team is just completely awful. I dunno, but it feels like all of the changes made it easier to attack, and given the size and layout of the maps, attackers running wheeled or lights can very easily change zones to create overloads which defenders can't do.

    3. Jesse_the_Scout

      Jesse_the_Scout

      Defense is horrible. People change flanks and just flood until you're getting hammered by a train of 2 to 1. It's the single biggest problem with the mode, I've been considering just leaving games where I get defense.

    4. hazzgar

      hazzgar

      Yeah I had games were like 3 people had captain and rest were below. Like 5 games in a row

  13. Has LT432 always been this cheap? With tank reward cupons it costs next to nothing

    1. Snoregasm2

      Definitely worth a buy if you can afford it. Best tier 9 light in the game.

      Got it for that reason. 20E for it is good.

      The concept is good, just that there are tanks with equal amounts of armour that go twice the speed.

    4. hazzgar

      hazzgar

      @Balthazars not even that. The tank is too slow and bad at pushing vs competent players. It's good at stopping attacks but not attacking and I usually stop attacks via dmg not just being a big rock.

       

      Also I got it for ht12 on new acc and every time I get that 5k blocked I dont get the damage when I get 3-4k dmg games no one shoots me.

  15. No longer praising tanks on wotlabs. Every time i do that I get an insta -10% to them. FfS

  16. Just got the VK1001P for some block missions. I know I'm late to the party and I know the speed means most wotlabs will say some glass canon is better and yeah in pure DPG farming it will be but who in their right mind thought this tank is a good idea? Probably the most broken same tier/top tier tank since KV1S.  I'm literally playing it only for bounce missions, playing like a moron half of the games I die with very little dmg but then I get t8 games that result in me roflstomping everyone. It's also a great scout because fuck logic. 

     

    I get that it's probably hard to reliably push its WR into high 60's but I also think you have to be super unlucky to not pull 60-65% even as a bad player. It's a tank that kinda should perform on the same level irregardless of skill. It's just boring because speed.

      VK100 has been one of the better tier 8 tanks since day 1 (as in: the day it was added to the game), played it a lot in platoon with a defender, and performance was roughly the same.

      Tier for tier, its much better as Mauschen and not as frustrating as the MAUS

    3. hazzgar

      hazzgar

      @Balthazars it's less reliable it still trolls the shit out of ppl and you have 1700hp with alpha that allows you to trade. Plus a smart player simply wont try to rely on his armor vs high pen tanks. I was just surprised how easy the tank was too play. One of those tanks were it's literally no stress outside of the games where the speed makes you out of position

      @MagicalFlyingFox a few unis (Iyouxin for one) claim it's decent or at least better than expected. Probably because it has great camo and a reliable gun. So even without it it would not be worst. Tbh If manticore had 25-30 shells and DPM around -10% of other lights it would be a good tank

    3. MagicalFlyingFox

      MagicalFlyingFox

      It is better than a flipwagon but its no T-100 LT. 

      Give it more shells and it might not be completely horrible. The guns need to do more across the board. 

    4. nabucodonsor

      nabucodonsor

      WG needing data to balance vehicles is a bad excuse. Most tanks work similary and by now even us players can guess if a tank will perform well of not based on our experience on the game. 

      They are just incompetent or unwilling to make the changes best for the game

  18. This warrants a separate post - stock gun on Brit T7 light has 900 DPM. !!!! NINE HUNDRED. As in HALF of what most other lights in tier have.

  20. Anyone else has an issue with commenting on some people's statuses? Happens both on Chrome and IE on work laptop and I need to pass time on 3.5h+ work calls every day.

     

    BTW. @kolni did you test your designated target hypothesis? Also I don't fully understand your findings because of shit formatting on my work laptop. Basically go with vision for marking or dmg? 

  21. Leo PTA acc is fake. Seriously. I hit more shots with 0.4acc guns. 200m, 3 shots at e75 lfp - went upper plate. 3 shots at p44 side - went fuck knows where. I am doing more damage with an Emil II and IS3-II than this tank. Maybe it's the ACPR natural tendency to bounce more but the tank is making me twice bald.

      @kolni i have to eat my words. PTA is good. I just had a looong stream of horrible teams + I think I had a mix of slightly bad rng and slightly bad positioning. Just had a nice 4.1k dpg session without going full gold. Would be more if I wasn't a moron who can't aim while also being distracted by a mix of gf/pizza since my last 6.7k game could have easily been 9k if I tracked the full hp tort that decided to yolo me. But I fucked up and died too early.

      @sohojacques well that's a tank that almost never gets monster games. The gun is super consistent but it's hard to get a lot of dmg with low alpha, low dpm and the tank is too slow and too low camo to get amazing spotting games.

      I've had one 8k combined battle with 5.5k spots and one 4.7k dmg battle. No other super good battles. The 4.7k dmg one was me literally firing non stop and penning almost all of my shots. Any other tank in that situation assuming the HP pool wasn't a limiting factor would probably sit at 6k+ in that battle. 

    3. hazzgar

      hazzgar

      One thing I have to say is the tank isn't annoying. You can always do something. So even with bad mm and with a bad team you will get some dmg. It's just that it's a very unexciting tank. Not a tog boring kinda tank. It's just there are no big strengths to leverage, you never feel "ok now it's my time to shine". If this tank was an animal it would be a reliable mule.

      Also - it almost doesn't make money. Typical UK problem of expensive shells/alpha problem.
