  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.

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

      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

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

      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.

      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.

      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.

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

      why even get a tank , its trash.

    4. breeeze

      breeeze

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

  8. Is the 50TP playable without the top engine? I not planning on keeping the tank and just want to grind through it fast to buy the tier X as it is on Top of the tree this month on EU. Was also thinking about grinding it with stock gun, but since this tank is all about alpha, that would be really dumb I guess.
  9. Any ideas how to fix this shit??

      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.

      What does the log say?

  10. 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

      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

      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

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

      'Soon'.
      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.

       

  12. The good news is - new Fallout game is in development. The bad news is - Obsidian is not involved in this..
  13. You're not a real world of tanks player until you respond to your gf's question "what are we going to do on weekend??" with the answer "well, hard to tell, I don't know what the specials are yet".
  14. 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

      @Katoleras 

      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

      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

      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.

  15. Is it just me or is this mode slowly getting more and more campy? I'm around rank 21 or so now and I'm just afraid to advance anywhere as most of the enemy team just bushcamp and wait for someone brave(stupid) to make a move. When I started playing, my first few games were actually fun, tanks driving and fighting everywhere. Now I just spend a lot of time thinking where I could actually go without getting ripped apart by camping tanks.
  16. So what tanks are best suited for this mode? Fo far I play Patriot, Spagetto and sometimes Defender. Scorpion seem to do well too.
  17. So what are your tanks with the highest average base xp? Maybe the fastest way to get the XP for missions would be to run platoons of pref. tier VIII?
  18. 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

      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

      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. 

  19. I have similar problems, I tend to overextend at the start of the game way too often, or I just don't pay closer attention to team comps. It happened to me several times that I went really aggressive for example on Arctic region, I started from south with my med and pushed along water through East, seeing my team heavies are slowly following. But instead of continuing, they stopped short in the second line and just camped there and I got immediately crushed by the enemy push while my team just watched from the back and unsurprisingly got rolled later and we lost. I can have good game
  20. 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....

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

  21. MatzerMike

    Obj 430U

    Can I expect similar amount of fires, when hit in LP, as with 430? Would be nice to run food instead of AFE.
  22. Right, that makes sense. I was about to leave it and wait for some discounts but WG proably heard my thoughs and I just had a pop-up in the game saying that thanks to some epic medal, I'm recieving one time 10% off something from the shop, lol... so I used it and bough the mod 1. Damn wg mindreaders...
  23. So would you recomend it now after the buffs? I need some russian crew trainer, I have the T-34-85M but it has the extra radioman, so I'm thinking about T-54 mod 1. Is it worth the money now or should I rather wait fot T-44-100 to show up during some special "sale"?
  24. We have it on EU righ now (top of the tree).
