  1. As someone who recently dusted off his account after a 3 year hiatus, game feels pretty similar. The major differences are all the new maps and old map reworks since 2017 make it so my knowledge of THE SPOTS is pretty awful and I find myself unable to play as yolo aggressive as I prefer, dying early and out of position often. That and it seems like there's way more tanks with invulnerable turrets and lots of obvious/easy hull down spots near the main flanks for the pubbies. Maybe that's just me not knowing the maps but sometimes it feels like it's harder to push. Otherwise the itch is being scratched, you can still pew pew tanks and mostly feels like the same game, except I'm bad and having fun and not as frustrated.

      There's a WoTLabs discord, you can ask for toons there

  3. Why would you want someone else to 3 mark tanks for you....completely meaningless. Can't trust anyone with marks who doesn't maintain over 90% moe anymore.

      Or they just pay carbon to do it for them :^

      Obviously you know who you are, if it doesn't apply to you then don't worry about it, stat shills should be shamed.

      I've never accepted money or gifts for it. Feels like taking advantage of people with shit money skills. Something about being payed to play games doesn't sit well in my stomach

      huh, I lied actually. my E5 is at 90.72 atm, and my T-54 is at 93.93, which are the only two relevant tanks I've 3 marked. go figure.

  4. Anyone with a large garage has probably built up a collection of equipment over the years, which will basically be obsolete, that's pretty dumb. This whole thing is pretty dumb, guarantee all the new equipment will be purchasable with real money, yet another cash grab.
  5. starting to realize average damage/tier is a way better metric than wn8 at the top end of players, so many 4k+ players seem to just be padding easy tiers, need a big asterisk next to their stats :^

      Just saw a reroll with 69.7%WR after 9k battles. Was impressed until I checked out vehicles stats: 3000+ battles in Cromwell for 67%WR and 2000+ battles in the Cruiser III for 78%WR.

      This is old news :MingLee:

      not only a reroll, but a seal clubbing sub t8 reroll :doge: 

  6. Emil II is a straight upgrade from Emil I, much better tier for tier. The turret is much closer to invincible, the clip damage is enough to kill most T8s, increased alpha makes shots of opportunity better early game, the pen is mostly adequate, sure you don't want to fight a Maus frontally but what T9 does? The trick is to not hide between reloads like most auto loaders, you can do so much work for your team by constantly peeking your invulnerable turret and keeping pubbies interested. I've fended off tanks 4v1 while on reload because I keep peeking and they just stop dead to shoot at me, what other autoloader can defend itself between clips? Only 22 games deep but running 77% wr solo so far with ~3300 dpg.
  7. sell the tank, and delete this thread you are embarrassing yourself
  8. Emil II is just :doge2:

    Best part is keeping pubbies guessing when you're clipping by constantly peaking your turret, literally carries so hard by baiting bounces all game :D


  9. There's always been this disconnect in peoples heads about single battle/short term variance and the 1000 game averages, this is sort of a nice example as to why having a bad team in a few games means nothing in the long run, effectively 29 people are random noise evenly distributed and the only influencing factor in your solo game WR and DPG iis your input. Everyone gets the same random variance, bad teams, bad rng, lucky shots against them, so none of that actually matters and is not an excuse to hide behind.
  10. You're the guy who caps because 4v1 against a 350hp T95 is "asking for a loss"? Or is that another Dr_J?

    1. DrJ_Zoidberg


      I've never capped a pub game in my life

  11. Emil 1 pretty enjoyable, spammed a lot of gold and had to get used to not over committing because it's relatively slow to retreat. Would recommend. (Stats in image)


  12. 99% of wot players suffering from delusions of grandeur, nobody is "focusing" you...you're just the easiest target to shoot. :bigdoge:

      Your statement is correct, since the top 1% are the most commonly focused.

    3. DirtyACE7


      I always thought people were exaggerating about being arty focused. Then I got to teal/blue overall and it's like I crossed an invisible boundary. I've rewatched my replays where I thought I was being focused and a vast majority of the time my feelings were correct. When you have one arty on enemy team and he never fires unless you are spotted, then there you go. Also look in their match stats. In the replay you can see he fires 5 times at you, then you check the post-match stats and he only has 5 shots total the entire game.

    4. DrJ_Zoidberg


      Not saying it doesn't happen, it's just far too prevalent an excuse for poor positioning/overexposing. Yes some people get focused because of who they are, no not every shot of damage you take is because of that, the idea that you wouldn't take damage in the same situation/position if you were some anonymous shitter is....pointless?

  13. Always thought Garbad brought more to the table than he took away with his baity trolling/fight picking, but I knew him from EVE/Goonswarm and people seemed to have thicker skins in that game.. That said, he was a champion of maximizing WR over dpg, so why are we even talking about damage/wn8 values? I'd like to see any of the top dpg whores play as many games as he did SOLO with as high a WR....it's a lost art. The WR > DPG camp lost it's head when he was banned, unfortunate people couldn't help but get baited into the fights.
  14. The arty re-balance shifts from a high variance, all or nothing mechanic...to a more consistent but lower top end damage mechanic. Anyone who thought it would make them useless misunderstood the changes. In the hands of a talented player, they will be much more consistent. You also get time to react/change what you're doing if you get focused. Class is more balanced AND more powerful (on average).

    Good change!
