  1. Any tips for field mods on the Leo 1? My first setup is classic bond rammer/vs/vents but idk what to kit out the second one for, it's sitting at fat scout for now (vents/optics/cvs)

  2. Taking myself out of the ice to smh my head that WG are releasing a tier 9 premium tank

      Yeah that's what I'm worried about the most. It's obviously fairly average but it sets a precedent for them to sell some stupid overtuned machine and slap a $100 pricetag on it

      Honestly I am surprised they didn't start selling tier 9 premiums years ago. Imagine how well a Concept 1B that prints credits and bonds would sell.

      Concept 1B-B (Black) coming soon to a loot crate near you!

  3. Triple bourrasque is the new type 59 platoon

      Seems fine and not broken at all...

  4. Do you guys think ranked would be more enjoyable if it was 7v7 like brawl?

      7v7
      Everyone on winning team gets 1 chevron, losing team loses 1
      Maybe tier 9?

    4. hazzgar

      No. Like Echo said ELO system and it's fine. Going 7vs7 would be a big buff for some tanks and a big nerf to others. Meta tank list would get smaller by half. 

  5. Can anyone point me to any resources pertaining to the Type 59 fiasco from all those years ago, especially forum posts and stuff from the time? I wanna learn about what happened as the shitstorm was brewing and/or write an article on it or smth

  6. Does anyone even bother to angle their armor anymore? I feel like it's been sidescrape or fuck off for a while now

      I barely even sidescrape anymore either, at most I do it to try and bait track shots. It just is too unreliable. At most I normally peek my nose out at an extreme angle to bait the shot without exposing my drive wheel, and then peek out. Or sit hull down, because thats the only real way to safely use armour on most tanks nowadays.

      I've always been firmly part of team 'Maximize chance for opponent to get fucked by RNG'

      Driving at people at an angle/switching angles so they hit tracks or ricochet off side armor, wiggling, fast pokes, baiting, showing the strong side of the T-10 pike nose, etc. There's very few cases where you can safely assume you wont take damage.

      It hasn't been working too well in my IS4 lately that's for sure.

      I'm sure it can't possibly be worse than 2020, and that I'm not jinxing us all by saying so

  8. I got stomped 4 times in a row, if WoT doesn't want me to play it should've just told me :feelsbad:

    1. Balthazars

      Balthazars

      Yep, I thought I'd play a few games last night before bed. First game in, M46 on Highway south spawn, go north. Within first 2 minutes of the game, smacked for 80% of my HP by arty, 3 dead crew and perma-stunned. Dead with 1 shot of damage inside 4 minutes. That's a solid 'Nope!' to playing any more!

  9. Is it weird of me to want the 121B? Despite being well aware of its mediocrity i can't help but be drawn to its weird kit

    1. SoliDeoGloria

      SoliDeoGloria

      No, it's a neat vehicle.

    2. Deus__Ex__Machina

      Deus__Ex__Machina

      its not bad tbh. 350 HEAT and decent handling with 420 base VR makes for a playable tank

    i want my amnesty, isn't 5 years enough :rabble:

  11. istg the secret to playing this game is doing it at only 1-10 times a day

    you can see where I did the marathon because my stats take a nosedive lmbo

  12. What's the math between the difference of AP and APCR? As in, what's an AP pen's average APCR equivalent and vise-versa? Obviously the slope of the armor you're shooting at matters, but I wanna know to what degree is APCR impacted by worse normalization compared to shooting at smth with AP

    1. Rexxie

      Rexxie

      Not a maths guy, but compared to AP, APCR is almost exactly 10 less than what it says and HEAT/HE is almost exactly 20 less vs your average tank (50 degrees sloped armor). That's the simplest way of looking at it.

      APCR slowly becomes 20-25mm less pen than AP as you get closer to autobounce. For most tanks, about 69 degrees is when APCR is doing nothing for you. If you're at range this is a lot sooner (66-67) due to pen dropoff and less angle negation due to high velocity rounds.

      It's really rare for it to be straight up worse than AP, but it's surprising just how often APCR is doing literally nothing on tanks that only gain 30 pen or so, like the AMX 50 100.

    2. simba90

      simba90

      IMO Shell velocity is a bigger pro than the extra pen for APCR vs AP.

  13. Who let the CS-52 be a thing lmbo, it's actually busted

      ...why is the AP shell like 900 m/s while the APCR is 1569 ms/s?? That has to be the fastest shell in the game.

      Fastest is the K-91's standard, followed by the Leo 1's premium and then Chieftain/T95's standard (the tier 8 trash one)

      4th best in the game is a good place to be though

  14. I actually can't play the Leo 1 anymore since I can't trust my heavies to not fuck it up for the rest of us and all I'm left to do is farm damage and lose since it's p much all this thing can do

      as if playing a heavy would make it any better - your meds would just camp 600m from the engagement after telling you to spot and watch you die.

  15. It's only now I realized that Pilsen and Kharkov have p much the same map layout, one side for TDs/Meds where you get fucked over for pushing, the other side for HT/TD where you're separated by building rubble about ~100-200m apart

    1. FavreFan4ever

      FavreFan4ever

      Plus, the cities on both maps used to be a lot more dynamic. WG removed the ability to easily flank/maneuver (taking out doors/adding stupid rubble) in the cities and ruined both maps for me.

    2. SkittlesOfSteeI

      SkittlesOfSteeI

      I cannot fathom why they removed flanking opportunities in city.
      -Tanks get introduced with stupid frontal armor
      "Oh just flank"
      -Haha kidding no side shots allowed please buy the defender.

    3. ZXrage

      ZXrage

      I actually quite liked old Kharkov city, the southeast side was wacky enough that you could flank people on the city outskirts if you won it

  16. when did winning become the hardest part of world of tanks lmao

    1. Balthazars

      Balthazars

      Yeah, feels pretty hard to get wins at the moment, for me also most metrics are going up but win rate is going down (lost almost 0.1% in the last week). Not helped by me grinding tanks that are not good at carrying, but the steamrolls have been real.

  17. tbqh I don't think the E5 armor-wise is much better since it last got changed (in fact it almost hasn't changed at all), I think people just forgot how to shoot the tank xd

    1. Deus__Ex__Machina

      Deus__Ex__Machina

      they didnt change the armor at all really 

      they just fixed the issue with the front drive wheel having a weak armor zone that could easily be penned when sidescraping 

  18. Holy shit Prokh is actually a dumpster fire now south spawn. The hill changes made it so you can't shoot from mid into the hill from south, which makes it super easy for north to rush the hill and take over a huge chunk of the map

  19. What should i drop on my E3 next patch for the turbocharger, Vents or GLD?

      I haven't been paying attention to this stuff at all. Has anyone made a guide yet?

  20. Fuck the tier 8 spaghetti tank is actually getting a buff, I didn't think this was possible. They embedded the rammer bonus into the tank so you can run your third slot as vents and boost everything more

      Yes. All Italian auto-reloaders, it would seem. The  IS-3A couldn't mount one, so that's all of them.

      Premium wheelie isn’t getting a mobility nerf; tier 5 and lower premium vehicles are also keeping the rammer bonus despite no longer being able to mount one...

  21. Are there tanks that are better to play the better the enemy is?

    1. M4A3E8sherman

      M4A3E8sherman

      Just throwing out a guess here, but it's possible that a tank with trollish but somewhat unreliable armor (e.g. T54E1 perhaps? also maybe some russian turrets of moderate strength or something) could do better in select cases - bads might think you're easier to pen than other tanks and get up in your face, they'll probably die but it costs you too much HP. A somewhat better player might decide not to take the risk because they don't view it as a safe trade of HP

  22. Finally full purple recents :D I'm pretty happy now

      Don't worry WR is random lately. I'm at 57% despite pulling 3500-4200 wn8.

  24. How would you guys buff the 121? I would:
    - buff gun stats on par to 430U (and keep the DPM)
    - buff gun depression to -6
    - buff terrain resistances to match 430U

    Nothing too wild but it would at least give it a different edge over the 430U

      Id buff it by nerfing the 430U...

    3. lavawing

      lavawing

      Give it an ultra high velocity 122mm with 1.7k shell speed, 470 alpha and 430U soft stats. Buff gun dep to -7. Also 420 HEAT pen with half the shell speed.

      I'd do this and let it keep the 1k shell speed. 500m/s HEAT golfing anyone? :serb:

  25. First 3 mark! (that I actually tried for)

    I'm really thankful to the WoTLabs community for giving me the resources to improve myself, especially @kolni for his statement of trying for 'non-losing' gameplay, which helped me get my mindset into staying alive ^^
