  1. So, at what tier are you gonna start with wheeled Baguettes in 1.4? I have the 32k saved on ELC but won't buy the tier VI and will free XP to tier VII (eliting tier VI unlocks almost no modules on VII). Will probably play couple of games in VII and then free XP to VIII, which I will grind normaly  (and mostly in the Frontline mode).

      I have 32k on the ELC and will just be slowly grinding through the line, starting with the tier 6. I've played them on the closed test and they aren't good by any stretch of the imagination, but will probably be entertaining enough for me to want to play them occasionally. 

    3. hazzgar


      In its current state I will pass them since every other light is better

    4. hall0


      I will just grind them from T6 on. I know alredy I will suffer a lot, but hey this is part of my enjoyment. 

      But I think I will stop at T8 (Frontline). Don't rly see the use grinding the T9 and 10

  2. I hate that f*king capping mission for 260 (LTs)... 

    It's a hair-pulling nightmare. The description should seriously read "Go ahead and sit in cap circle and have fun while missing out on all the easy cleanup damage and enjoy your frustration after, when your teammates manage to kill the enemy team 2 seconds before you cap."

    OMFG.. Any advice on how to do this without becoming crazy?

      I think I just spammed 3X toons with clan mates that also needed the mission and tried to fast cap whenever we could.  Toxic AF but we did it in one night

    3. sohojacques


      Encounter on Steppes or Lakeville is where you can get it without being a total dick to your team in the process.


    4. tajj7


      Go the reset route with either encounter or assault turned on, go for lower tiers. Especially encounter, people tend to just go sit in that circle from the start, so just let them build up points then reset them. Mines Encounter if you can get the hill you'll get multiple resets. 

  3. So, what do you think will be the best tanks for upcoming CW campaingn? Are you going to play? How hard it would be to get enough points for reward tank?

    Never really cared much for CWs, but I would like to have 907 in the garage and they say it's the last time(TM), so I might try to get one.

      907>?Cheiftian?>VKK>Everything else. 

      in terms of difficulty? if you were on NA id say you have a chance, but your EU so id imagine it be kinda difficult.

      @Assassin7 think a s,conq crossed with a 277.  basically a ridge-line heavyium with an untouchable turret, 270 base pen with high alpha, and high RoF.

      it may very well compete with the 907 for most OP CW tank, they also recently buffed its gold from 310 to 322.


    3. Hellsfog


      If you were asking about tanks to play in the campaign

      Obj 140, 430U, bat chat but usually only one or two.

      Wz 5A, 277, Type 5 heavy, super conq, Is-7 are the most used.  Heavy autoloaders sometimes. 

      Lt 100 but usually only one on a team. 

      Cong GC for arty

      I may have missed some but those are the most common. 

    4. Assassin7


      Can@Deus__Ex__Machina oh my god I have to get that thing. I only dont have the VK and have never been really interested in it so yeah

  4. So apparently 9/10 games during the cyka scorpion winter marathon with your tier X throws you into full tier X games. And if you do platoon wit other tier X, you get mostly games with tier VIII.. Looks like it's oppostite than compared to normal.

    Anyone wants to join for tier X platoon (EU) for marathon grinding?

  5. So, circa two weeks ago I bought the T-44-100 afer a long hestitation, for full price. Well guess what, today WG sells the tank with like 50% discount. Great timing on my part, good job me. Welp.

  6. Best third option for eqp. slot on T95? Optics or Sall-liner??

      @nabucodonsor it works for NON PENETRATING hits but since no He can penetrate you so it works.

    3. nabucodonsor


      So should I put it on my E3?

    4. simba90


      @nabucodonsor Give it a go, whats the worst that could happen, You find something else that doesn't work for you?

  7. Anyone did the 50TP  grind to 60TP with stock gun and engine?

      if you want to torture yourself then go right ahead :serb:



      why even get a tank , its trash.

    4. breeeze


      wut? 50TP is awesome and 60TP looks like its just as good.

  8. Any ideas how to fix this shit??

    wot error.png

    1. mostlyhybrid


      for me at least checking the install integrity and then restarting helped, but I don't know exactly what caused the problem and what exactly solved it.

    2. Haswell


      What does the log say?

  9. Anyone bought the Halloween event (EU at least, not sure if this is on NA too) bonuses +50%XP, creds and 200% free XP for gold right away?? The game mode itself is utter shit but the rewards seem like a nice boost, esp. since it stacks with regular prem time bonus.
    On the other hand, Thronebreaker comes out tomorrow (and also Gwent is officialy  out of Beta) and it will probably be a lot of fun. Decisions, decisions..:feelsbad:

      It's not worth the 5k gold.

      The price goes down over time. Yesterday, when I bought it, it was 2.6k gold. And I've been using it alongside credit boosters, printing 150k to 200k a match in my premiums

    3. Fulcrous


      and the cost scales down incrementally. it's not worth it over purchasing a booster (which gives you better value and time-effectiveness) period unless you play the game an obscene amount. I have 66k gold and didnt even bother with this and just stockpiled more credit boosters instead.

    4. MatzerMike


      Well, I would say it's actually helpful when a) playing tanks that you don't really like that much but don't want to waste you free XP on it, so you throw booster + this bonus = less battles needed to finish the grind, and b) need a lot of credits in short period of time/least amount of battles


  10. Anybody still plays FCM 50t these days?

    2. Jesse_the_Scout


      No one plays this shit game anymore, much less a shit tank.

    3. Tman450


      It's supposed to be getting buffed soon, i'm holding out for that until i play it again.

    4. lavawing


      Seriously, looking forward to the 23 HP/T, 10 degrees of gun dep and 2300 base DPM. Should be a pretty good pref MM med once (and if) these changes drop.


  11. ADVICE NEEDED: I'm staring with spaghetti tanks and need to train the gifted commander to certain tank. What is good tier to start without much pain, tier VI, VII or VIII?? Thanks

    2. hazzgar



      VK3001 and Skoda 40 both have 200+ alpha. All 3 of them have the same dpm (tiny diference of 7). This tank has better bloom on the move but worse turret traverse, aim time and final acc vs VK3001p.

      Also no vk3001 doesn't have "about the same speed" 15.6 vs 17.5 is a big difference. 3001 is MUCH faster. Also if camo is really needed for a tank with shit final acc? 

      And yes I have played it but I find it meh. I play on some donkey account so I can't afford to go full tryhard on tier6 (never did that on low tiers anyway) but vs bottom tier I take the vk3001p any day because

      -More standard pen

      - 14 more prem pen (so it can actually pen t8's more reliably than 180 pen)

      - 10m more view range

      - 10 more kph

      - 2more hp/t


      All that for "half the camo"?  All the Spagetti tonk has over the vk3001 is armor so the ability to bully same and lower tier tanks. This is why it's good. Vs higher tier tanks all that armor becomes useless and I'd rather have mobility + better prem rounds.


      Also the not bad mobility is actually - fast heavy territory. M6 has  higher power to weight and comparable ground resistance. All the m6 loses is top speed.

    3. Katoleras


      @hazzgarI mean, I wasn't claiming VK3001 is a shit tank... This whole discussion is about whether tier 6 spaghetti tank is good or not. And the truth is this tank is better than 90% of the medium tanks in the same tier. I was able to make it work and it feels very strong to me. That is literally all there is to it.

    4. hazzgar


      @Katoleras when not firing full prem for me it's not very strong. This is all I am saying. When firing full prem yeah it is strong but so is Cromwel, 85M, 3001p. It's just not that much stronger than other meds in tier. I think the tank may simply suit some players. I see the streamers are split about it. QB loves it, Circon or Foch hate it.

  12. Any tips on how to play the nerfed Hellcat nowdays (for gun marks)? What's the best equipment? Rammer, bino, net? Do you just snipe or you try be more active?

    1. Assassin7


      ehh, I marked it well after the nerf. ran the standard rammer net binocs. Shes still got it, but its a bit more of a struggle. IIRC I mostly played second line, though went and found forward bushes to get shots from.

      1.0 might make it easier tbh because I did it in corridor meta. 

    2. MatzerMike


      Did you run food as well? I'm kinda cheap now, saving for some tier Xs. I have only 2 skill crew and no food and I hover around 80% atm. Some matches are just too fast and its hard to do a lot of damage

    3. Assassin7


      I dont remember, but I dont think I ran food. 

      I do have like a 5 skill crew in my hellcat though, it was my favourite tank in the game for the longest time. I orginally learned how to play the game with it. 

  13. So... The Obj. 268 ver. WTF is going to be on the next Top of the Tree special on EU. Seems like that May will be very chill and pleasant month for playing tier X....

    1. hazzgar
    2. MatzerMike


      Yes, now in april it's T-100 LT. TDs are next in May

  14. My ping on EU is around 200 and it is very bad to play the game. if I check my ping through websites, it says my average ping is 12... Anyone having same problem? Is this because of the ranked battles?

    1. Assassin7


      average ping to the WoT server? or to those websites/servers your visiting?

      two different things.

    2. EndlessAgony


      Working for Czech/Slovak ISP, currently registering this issue as well, no idea what is causing it yet. Issue was first reported yesterday in the evening, both EU1 and EU2 have this problem.

  15. Anyone knows about some good invitation/bonus codes?? Starting a new alt and need some boosts. Want to grind tier X to get  T95E2 so I guess fastest way is going IS7 line right?

      I saw a player yesterday with a name like New_Account_to_Get_T95E2. I chuckled. Wish I had done that to avoid all the “reroll” discussions in chat. 

      I’d play the T95E2 more despite the worst-in-class gun if it didn’t hemorrhage credits like mad. I don’t like having to grind credits just to be able to play a tier 8. It’s dumb.

      The Russian med lines aren't a bad grind. Pretty easy and not really too bad xp wise
