  1. Dad is a Hero, Mom is a Spirit, I'm a Reincarnator Farming Life in Another World I Became a Legend a Decade Later After Telling My Comrades to Leave Everything to Me and Retreat First The Eminence in Shadow The World of Otome Games Is Tough For Mobs These are just some I picked up for myself from my friend who loves isekai manga. Yuusha Ga Shinda! This one's a personal recommendation. Not an isekai but it has the same feel.
  2. Is it worth stepping up from the T95 to the E3? I need a TD to finish TD-15 and I think the worse MM would help me farm more people

    Also the speed on the T95 is hair-raising sometimes

      @Snoregasm2 t9 was pog but for some reason the meta went to shit. People play like bots. PTA started working for me so I don't complain about it anymore.

      T95 would require the damage to come to you, fuck that shit.


      If i want to get TD-15 I'd play something faster since you'd need less to be in your favour.

      The shitbarn would be your best bet for enjoyment + chance of doing it.

      @MagicalFlyingFox shitbarn is severly punished by EBRs. Kinda forces it to city play. You get ocasional high dmg game but it's not reliable now. 3 mark reqs reflect that.

  3. You're right, I plugged in the numbers myself into the Lorr 40t's hull (assuming its the same hull, looks like it), and goddamn its ~260 effective dead on. Against AP it's only ~230 effective and I assume against APCR its somewhere in the middle but I severely underestimated the hull. With a dead on value like that though it's more of a low-tier bully on flat terrrain, loads of tier 9s have more than 230 pen. But if it's hulldown oh boy everyone's screwed. What's with WG and hulldown beasts with these new rewardies? Concept 1B, Strv K, the new UDES technically even though it's squishy, and
  4. link This tank is the biggest bag of shit I've ever seen historical-wise that isnt the Waffletractor, and even that kinda made sense. The tank itself is kinda bad but at this point I've stopped caring about whatever new tier 9 premium WG is cobbling together. Reminds me of Strv K but less historically accurate. Stats:
  5. Which French line should I go down that isn't the wheelies, 13 105 or Bat-Chat? I wanted to go down the AMX 30 line but they turned it into a collector's vehicle lol

      It is so sad. The 50b instantly made me a really good player because it abused pubbies as hard as you abused the game. Currently I'm mediocre at best lul but I have yet to find a "catch all tank"  to adjust with. Maybe the leo???

      BC25t still works, always will - not meta but once you get the playstyle down (the pub gameplay is more similar to competitive BC now) it's still an okay tank. BC AP is a really, really horrible tank though and a shitty grind. So much engine bullshit you'll be driving 25kph half the time.

      13 105 is good, grind to it is also good. It's very hard to play well. 

      50B still strongest out of the french stuff when it comes to damage

      AMX 30P is still sorta good, not as good as it used to but not bad, 30B on the other hand is totally useless when the STB exists

      BC AP is a relic of mid tier french light/medium game play more or less

  6. How tf am I supposed to play the M48 xd
    I don't hate the tank its just so fat and weird I have no idea where to bring it unlike Leo 1/430U/277 which are relatively simple tanks to figure out

      I have no idea. It’s huge. It’s slow. HEAT just has to lick the side of the turret for a pen. I suspect having amazing situational awareness would allow you to get the great gun singing. But I don’t know what even good situational awareness is, so...

    3. Balthazars

      Stack view range (I have a 4-skill crew, on it's 5th) and then play it like any other paper medium. Get forward and spot but conserve health early, then once you start to know enemy positions, be a bit more aggressive poking ridges etc. and using the DPM to mow down exposed targets. I'm absolutely loving mine 20 games in - 80% win rate, 2,708 average damage 1,486 average assist (all metrics ridiculously high for me, albeit low sample size - but with a similar setup on the M46 I kept a 70% win rate after 100 games solo). Running Vents, Rammer and Optics (no Vstab, so the gun does donk occasionally) to get 510m view range without food.

  7. wouldn't wheelies be a little more balanced if they couldn't fire on the move at all? Like it could keep the lightning-quick aim time but it would have terrible dispersion stats so you'd have to slow down/stop in order to hit anyone

    1. Assassin7

      Assassin7

      They need to make "tracking" them ACTUALLY SLOW THE FUCKING THINGS DOWN.

      I can track one doing full speed and even without a repair kit it doesnt slow down at all. Its rediculous.

      One wheel gone needs to mean top speed is like, 5kph if they want to keep the moving thing. 

       

      Also remove the HE and also nerf the OTM gun handling

    2. sohojacques

      sohojacques

      I’d start with removing their unique movement physics and take it from there. Tier 6 and 7 are close to what they all should be: bit faster LTs that perform a different role. 

      No doubt the 105 is OP. But the lower tiers are just broken and annoying (excluding the Premium of course). If you make them trackable you have to give them view-range to compensate; unless you want them to be even shitter than the British LTs.

      Yeah true, can you show me where the giant springs on the EBR are that let it jump of a cliff without fall damage ....At least stun the crew for a minute for banging their head off the ceiling ffs

  8. Poor 113, it got outclassed and replaced by the 5A in its original spot as the top of the Chinese HT line, and is severely outclassed by 430U

      121 is still fun to play because it has pretty gnarly dpm which is strangely usable given its good gun stats (a fair amount better than the 113 surprisingly). 430U obviously is way stronger (Re:boring) than it but they both play differently imo.
      Also the 113 was/is absolutely crippled by module damage though imo.

  9. I'll never get why people don't like the T-44, sure it's no Progetto but it's pretty much the same as the T-44-100 and we all think that's a solid tank. I also didn't like the 430 but YMMV. The only tank I have a gripe with and might skip in the heavy line is the 257, the armor profile is so weird it's almost a good idea to drive side-on because the frontal armor is kinda shit. Also the turret roof can be overmatchable like the IS-3 so it's wonky hulldown.
  10. Have T-62A and/or 140 been buffed/nerfed at all? I don't recall WG doing anything to them apart from class-wide attempts in the Sandbox and 140 HD remodel (which it would've gotten anyway)

    1. MagicalFlyingFox

      MagicalFlyingFox

      907 bounces shit with its hull, 140 doesnt. 

    2. Assassin7

      Assassin7

      140 hits its shots, 907 doesn't.

      When it comes to farming damage 140>907 but 907>140 at winning across all skill levels

  11. istg the only way to play the stock T95 is bashing your head against the wall untill you have the 120 and the bashing your head against the wall all over again

    remember folks, don't be a dumbass like me and skip the T28 because you have a shitton of blueprints

      free XP is one hell of a drug.

  12. The T54E1 was reworked by a fair bit and feels like a weird tank now. The gun handles a lot better, you don't need a lot of APCR (but nice to have), but the fact you have heavy mobility and M48 armor (read = bad) is pretty off-putting.

    1. lavawing

      lavawing

      quite a few tanks have been shifted around and messed with without thought thanks to 1.9
      54E1 can now be worse in every way than both the Emil and the AMX. wonder if the 54E2 i.e. Renegade being a heavy had something to do with it - muh consistency

      that said, the real highlights of this patch are:

      That's truly impressive.  How in the world do you break a universal mechanic like that for ONE tank?  Like seriously, how?  So broken as to have no ETA on a fix?  Is there COBOL buried somewhere deep in the code base? 

    3. NightmareMk9

      NightmareMk9

      WG demounted equipment for tanks that changed class, so no free upgrade on the Vents or other equipment.

  13. tbh a cool exclusive 2D style would've been a lot more fun than a 3D style for one tank. I just hope it's as cool as they make it sound.
  14. The M60 having a poor rating is a bit detrimental to its gameplay as fat Leopard 1, although I guess M48 used to be like this before it got its turret buffed. Looking at the rest of the tanks I'm surprised the Leo 1 is kinda below-average on the list, considering how much its playstyle relies on not getting spotted. I always forget how tall the damn thing is. Also the 430U so high above that list better than the Bat-chat
  15. https://worldoftanks.com/en/10-years/ Post here news on the 10th Anniversary, musings on terrible good times playing this game, and whatnot. Going off the timeline in the link, I think my favorite era was Rubicon. Type 5 came out and it was a bit shit but still playable, TVP 50/51 came out which became a favorite among the unica, personal missions were introduced, tier 8 lights were put in the game which was fun
  16. Didn't more tanks used to have 420 VR at tier 10? IIRC 263 and WT E 100 had 420m

      Did you miss the TD nerf? Like it was literally 4 5 years ago lol

      I remember they nerfed TDs, I just can't recall if there were any more tanks other than those two.

      Hell, I forgot the 121B and Rhm Shitwagen have 420m VR too :serb:

    being a stat nerd and looking at tanks.gg the turret looks pretty strong, although the PTA prem APCR should have gone through a good chunk of it, looks like you were just unlucky. UFP looks pretty strong front-on (~230-270 eff) although it's a pike, LFP is trash, sides are overmatchable by 120+mm guns.
  18. Reading War Thunder Q&As make me miss reading the WoT ones :(

  19. Second ST iteration They nerfed the E5 back to normal They just straight up nerfed its movement dispersion to be worse than live. I guess they didn't want it buffed after all, E5 was too stronk. T32 got nerfed a little bit too which I don't get, now it has worse DPM than Rene. I get that they're fine-tuning the stats but I honestly don't want them to be anywhere in-between, not while SConq still exists

  21. What's a good reward to pick for the referral? My friend might return to the game and I could refer him to my account

    1. echo9835

      echo9835

      If he can still get the Panther M10, its probably the best tier 7 the recruited can get. As for you and the tier 8, it depends on what you have already.

    2. hazzgar

      hazzgar

      All t8 referal tanks are garbage and people will think I'm crazy but I'd rather take fv4202 over the patriot. But overall those 2. Liberte is trash. 

  22. I'd probably cull the player pool to be 7v7 like team clash a few months ago so it would at least be an interesting alterantive to randos. No arty so I can enjoy my game but they should do that in randos too . Also I agree with @Ezz that you're better off balancing tier 10 in general.
  23. Object 770 would be pretty interesting to see, same gun as 277 but a bit more armored (sources I'm reading say ~130mm sloped at 60deg for UFP, it's a varied cast hull like Fatton)
  24. This tank is such a huge bully top-tier it's disgusting. Bottom tier it's pretty meh because the gun can be pretty ass

  25. unpopular opinion: i liked stalingrad

    1. SkittlesOfSteeI

      SkittlesOfSteeI

      was that an opinion? I really liked cuz it had mad angles despite being a brawl so you actually flank and get side shots rather than the 1 funnel we have now.

       

    2. simba90

      simba90

      I have fond memories of counting tanks and realizing that there was no one on the beach so one could push all the way up/down that flank and farm for days. Also bonus points for finding an arty on its own.
