  1. Should I get the T-44-100 or WZ-120-FT? I enjoy both bush kemping and medium-ing

    1. Wanderjar

      44-100 is amazing for frontline. WZ isnt for FL so maybe that helps?

  2. How does penetration work with overmatched spaced armor? if a tank with a 100mm plate have a 20mm plate on top of it, will a 90mm shell overmatch the spaced armor? If not, how much penetration is deducted?

    1. sr360

      sr360

      Each of those plates are impacted individually, they are not summed for the purposes of overmatch. Fromt he wiki:

      "In case of spaced armour, shells are normalized at the point of impact on the spaced armour, and if they penetrate, continue along their normalized flight path into the vehicle. Once it impacts the hull armour, normalization occurs again and the remaining penetration potential (i.e. the original penetration potential minus the effective armour thickness of the spaced armour) is used to calculate whether the shell penetrates the hull proper."

      Actually I'm not sure we really know.

      After the Super Pershing armor model was updated for HD, the UFP effective thickness should have been about 220mm AP according to the wiki explanation, but was in fact much greater.

    3. Diriz0n

      Diriz0n

      over matches are calculated individually on each impact. In the case of good examples like obj 257 or 252U, shooting the side of the tank where it is 2O+2O+45mm  (tracks+rebar+hull)  or 3O+45mm  (spaced side+hull)  any gun over 135 starting at Conway+Type 5 cannons are over matching the armour completely. The only way you miss is if the shot passes through the outer portions, over matches, then proceeds to miss the hull behind....such as the back of the tank or too low, beneath the tank actual hull hitbox. 

      Tanks like FV183 and Cent AX are very susceptible to taking damage from side hits, exactly as SR36O explained. Even without instant over match. They take a hit even through the tracks, which is a low armour value, normalization occurs  (usually 2x caliber granting 2x norm effect)  so the projectile loses very little actual pen but is sent hurdling towards the hull at a new better angle, where you impact a measly 51mm hull then. HEAT doesn't have this, and loses pen quite fast over distance traveled after impact, which makes it very prone to Wtf bounces

       

       

  3. Merry Christmas, everyone! And if you don’t celebrate it then have a wonderful day instead.

      Don't recruit them yet. Wait for buffs or new lines of vision meds or lights.

      Still crying we didn't get a good apcr as prem round :(

    3. echo9835

      echo9835

      It had the same hitscan gold APCR as the leo, only with 490 alpha. It was better than the 5A in every way. Faster, tougher, better DPM, etc. For once WG listened to sweet sweet reason and nerfed the blasted thing. 

    4. hall0

      hall0

      thing is. they nerfed it without even testing the nerfs once. 

      So much on " we have to wait until we have enough data before we buff/nerf" things. 

  11. What's the best T8 prem medium rn? I got a coupon that I'm debating on using

      Progetto 46 hands down

    3. snowdude21325

      snowdude21325

      Progetto or the super pershing are two of my favorites you can get. SP is weird but with that APCR round, decent gun handling nd good credit multiplier its a solid tank for grinding credits. Oh it never sees tier 10 either

    4. Kymrel

      Kymrel

      If you are on EU the T-44-100 is available at the moment. It's one of the good ones for sure.

  12. by all accounts the T32 is a terrible tank, I have no idea why I've 3-marked it :doge:

    1. Bavor

      Bavor

      I was the sick individual who three marked the Tiger I.

    2. MagicalFlyingFox

      MagicalFlyingFox

      Tiger I is actually good though.

    3. kolni

      kolni

      did them both in 2016 or something when MM wasn't fucked and both of these were considered among best in tier

       

      t32 in 2019... yikes

  13. Should I earn up / spend my bonds on:
    A) The Guard, the greatest meme premium in game that I would love to get for free
    B) 1 improved equipment, granted idk which tank to put and which one to get

    1. echo9835

      echo9835

      If you think you will play the Guard a lot, then get it. If not the improved equipment is great for min/maxing a specific tank. make it one you play a lot.

      No I mean the wing as in the rear spoiler. 

      And yeah, my end goal for my Teg is to keep it and restore it to as new condition as possible. Unfortunately the engine rebuild cost has stalled me a little bit as it's gonna cost around 8 grand. for that much I could technically sell the car and then be looking at low end RX-7s D: As it is I've already spent ~3K on getting the brakes done plus a bunch of other smaller fixes that have added up in the year I've owned it. 

      I do absolutely adore it though. Seriously, seriously fun car. and just like everything cool and JDM from the 90s, its appreciating rapidly. 

      Ahh the boot spoiler :D. TBH mate, I'd do the very same if I had one. I think they just look much cleaner without them, I'd do the same to a Supra too.

       

      Fucking hell, that's a lot of money to rebuild a B18C:PogChamp:. Unless you're building it for more power?

      You'd get an engine shipped from Japan for a fraction of that price. There are loads of guys shipping parts out now. Yeah some really cool stuff from the 90's too, as she ticks towards 30 years old the value will shoot right up.

      @Assassin7 8k for an engine rebuild is ludicrous even in NZ. I would get several other quotes. For a really good job I would expect to pay in the region of 4 - 5k. Also look into doing it yourself it will be even cheaper again and add to the joy of driving. I've been involved in rebuilding several engines now and they're essentially like a giant lego kit that needs swearing at and hammering to get together. FWIW I'm not a mechanic - had a CS major at uni.

    4. Assassin7

      Assassin7

      Nope, I got 4 different quotes from highly respected shops. All in the region of 8k, including one from honda themselves who also tried to see if they could find a complete engine or even a short block. They couldnt. :-/ OEM spec rebuild as well. 

       

      As for the wing, my taste is that any JDM car that comes factory standard with a wing, looks absolutely ugly without it. That includes the Supra, evo, WRX etc. 

       

  15. Haven't played since they introduced Italians, about to reinstall. What have I missed?

      Meta going to shit. T10 is unplayable. The game is 80% one team falling 5 tanks behind in 2 minutes and them a steamroll in 4 minutes to get 15:3 or a long stalemate after which one of the team suicides. 

       

      Also they introduced annoying wheeled tanks which are only super good at high risk maneuvers because they spot by not being hit. They drive at high speeds near you like an annoying fly and are as hard to heat unless you have a fast shell (have fun hitting the t8 one with a low acc t6 tank) but doing high dmg or high spotting feels like a chore in them.

      That's two QB vids I've watched in the last week.....

      I basically agree with him. More so with his position on PMM:

       

    3. hazzgar

      hazzgar

      He is right. The campaigns are idiotic. As someone who grinds accs for people I find they basically exclude a large % of the server because they are nation specific. If you get a spot mission or an arty mission and you get no high tier arty you are fucked. They basically force every nation to have all classes ground to t6 at least. That's a huge dick move. 

    4. TheMarine0341

      TheMarine0341

      Completely. The mission designs are terrible. Some make sense, like "Enable 15000 assistance with XYZ" as a bloc. Sure, can do. But, then "deal 15000 damage to XYZ bloc MTs while driving XYZ bloc"? Piss poor. Simplify m8, or add an "or" in there. IE: Deal 15000 damage to XYZ block OR deal 30k damage total. Honors require Survive and win with 1k damage to target bloc.
