      whos the bitch that has higher caern dpg than me

      come fight me

      @Sapros you do realize I was ironic about Caern and I think that's an overpowered tank? I'm a way worse player than you and I still hovered way above 2k dpg in mine without food, gold spam and or a good crew.

  2. What's the strange black strip I'm seeing on my screen under team list since 1.7?

  3. Jesus the landslide meta is horrible for heavies. You either get overrun or can't catch the flank.

     

    Also hull armor is seriously useless now. It's only turrets that matter.

      Oh, it's the marathon!   Duh,  I've been wondering "WTF changed?".  Server population was higher, player behavior was straight up weirder and because I was ignoring the marathon, I actually couldn't make the connection. 

    3. hazzgar

      hazzgar

      Nah it's not the marathon. on EU it has been the same way before it. It just has gotten worse. I think the free hellcat also brought many old potatoes back. This results in some really really bad play.

      Oh yeah, the free Hellcat too!!

  4. Wait times on low tiers make me think the game is dead 90s for t4

      I think WG messed up their matchmaking code again. A few months ago, I would get into games quickly even lower server populations. Now regardless of server population I'm taking between 1 and 2 minutes to get into a game with very few exceptions. I recall something like this happening when the template system was new. 

  5. EU Black Friday deals are shit. 

    80% of them are "buy the premium tank for the same price but with some extra crap you don't need"

      When reality and some people's perception of themselves collide, the results are quite often entertaining, especially if they see themselves as above the masses.

  8. Current Twitch prime rentals were made for people to stop playing the game. Jesus the t34 is bad. I get the slow speed but why does it have to turn and rotate its turret so long arty can circle it?

  9. Can anyone explain to me why this stupid game needs updates every 2h and why they take so long?

      Yeah I only came back a few months ago after a 3 year break and it seems like the body isn't even twitching anymore 

  12. How to plan for a fun time? Get a new Jurb. Have a new jurb introduce a big rework of things a month after you come when you don't know everything tip top, 1 day after you lay out your long term plans, then have the work plan 1.5 weeks of work trips and have your assistant go on holiday at the same time. Jesus. I'm going to change my middle name to overtime

  13. 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. 

    3. lavawing

      lavawing

      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. 

    4. hazzgar

      hazzgar

      @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. 

  14. 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. 

  15. 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.

  16. 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

  17. 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?

      Quote

      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.

       

  18. 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.

     

    @leggasiini will you still play japs?

      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

    3. hazzgar

      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:

  20. 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.

    3. hazzgar

      @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.
