  1. I'm watching these replay videos of people playing the E-100 with the 128mm gun.  Sigh.  Just because its better does not make it right #BoomSticksMatter 

  2. Lol, I just watched Eddie carry your ass on Youtube. Fun game

      Hey now, I did nearly 4k damage! Not my fault I took 13 arty hits...

  3. This will be the first Christmas in a few years that I am not making a contribution to Minsk.  Feels strangely not weird, even with all of the box-opening videos popping up in my Youtube feed.  

  4. Well, for the first time since 2014, I don't have a premium account.  What I do have is enough boosters to play almost 200 hours of tank with XP/$$ boosters popped.  I probably don't have 200 hours of tanking left in my tank, so it worked out well.

      I’ve focused on getting a f2p friendly garage this year and I reckon I’ll pretty much have it after my current 3rd month of premium time for the year runs out. Got a fun selection of tier 6-8 premiums (no Skorp or Defender though) and a bunch of tier 9s with good standard round pen. Avoid tier 10 and even a shitter like me can at least break even.

  5. I have not had a game in days that did not have 3 arty in it.  Is this a result of the new campaign? If so, then congrats on making my decision for me WG.

      Nah. Misquoting is my idea of a joke. Play the game however you like. I just find the game frustrating enough without playing vehicles I really don't enjoy (arty; most TDs; most HTs). I find the "playing it for missions" arty excuse genuinely strange. Once you're at the point of playing arty there is surely something more enjoyable you could be doing with your time? 

      If the Chimera missions are set up the same that would leave four orders for the 279 missions. Plus potentially at least another couple from the 279 mission sets... would need to check.

      I don't think there is a tank in the game that is worth playing arty for.  I played the M40/43 enough to get T55, and that was awful. I sold all my arty a vowed to never play them again. Chemotherapy starts at home

  6. So I just sent a team mate 1K gold for TK'ing somebody that hid in a bush with full health while I brawled alone.  It was money well spent.

      Shit, I've only prestiged twice...

      Yeah, me too, although I knew I wouldn't finish the 3rd round due to lack of available time for gaming. I did finish with a top-XP General rank in my last ever game with boosters active, which was nice, but only up to level 23 on the 3rd prestige. Need another 2 days to finish. :/

      Fully elited and 81K XP on the Panther II is my FL claim to fame, I doubt I would have been able to avoid rage selling it if I had to do that in pubs

  8. So I ground the Caernarvan out almost completely playing Frontline and now I am grinding out the Panther II on FL as well.  I had a 278k credit game in the Pii last night, what a fricking godsend its been to salvage shitty tier 8s.

      Caernarvon is probably the one T8 I'd actually grind in randoms over frontline :doge: T10 DPM on a T8 with workable armour LUL

    3. HowitzerBlitzer

      HowitzerBlitzer

      Caernarvon is far from a shitty tier 8 now, WG always overdoes the buffs and won't backpedal for a while.

    4. Archaic_One

      Archaic_One

      Yeah the Caern is super cozy once elited now, although the speed is a little bad for FL.  The stock grind on it is horrific though

  9. I'm curious, am I the only one that just lost desire to play this game after 1.0?  Its not a tech issue, it just feels like a different game and I've lost interest in it

      another one here... buying the 13-57  gave me back some fun but it didnt last... reworked maps are a little worse than the originals, obj 266v4, type 5, obj 430... also not interestet in italian tech tree... havent played for days and sitting on 4 strikes due to... um inapropriate chat behaviour... i so ofthen think why i play this anymore and now decidt to invest that time in something usefull... like my studies or smoking weed...

      TohtoriP

      I quit when the object430 patch hit.  Game had been going downhill for two years already and that was the last straw of imbalance. Haven´t tried the new graphics either, watching SirFoch just shows how the game is prettier and shittier than ever.

    4. Medjed

      Slippery rocks and map changes are the last thing that would drove me away from the game(if i still played it). Game is shit because balance is terrible. Probably the worst it has ever been since the beginning and back then you could see T9 tanks with your T5.

      The world lost it's brain with Steven Hawking, now it's lost it's testicles.

  11. Its OK to be bad, for every unicum there have to be some 45% out there willing to donate blood.  Its OK to be bad and play tier X, you probably spent more time earning it than most.  I'm all about the tolerance being pretty bad myself.  Just please oh please if you are bad and want to play tier Xs, don't grab a couple of your fellow 46% friends and platoon in tier Xs together.  Having three tier X 46-percenters in a 3-5-7 MM is a godawful experience for your team mates . . .

      How do you die in one minute in a tank that's as slow as a turtle? Like if it was meds or lights ok I get it. Otherwise the only possibility I see is driving next to lake on lakeville and getting spotted or driving on the field on campinovka.

  12. That poor bastard has been splitting firewood nonstop for a month.  Bro, winter isn't really coming - take a break.

  13. So, could WG punish aggression and reward camping any harder than they are right now?

      Triple xp if your tank does damage while in contact with the red line...

      They could make the XP rewards greater for damage than winning, like WIN8 does.

      Give TD's camo bonus when firing and 850 alpha again?

  14. Is it just me, or has anybody else just lost interest after 1.0?  I spend 16k games learning maps and now I am back on level ground with the bots that camp base.  I have not played 30 games and I've lost the urge to even log in.  Different =/= better

      Played it after a half year hiatus (which makes me an even worse bot than before xD) - I just went into a more play4fun mode, self improvement and such is good but being fixated on it just leads to raging and tilting and in the long run it's just another game so nobody will really care how well are you doing in it unless you are looking for an esports career.

      With a different mindset I could still maintain performance (save for weekend meta/effects of not playing for months) without getting bored or pissed at the game. I could even use the T34 and Lowe to grind out enough credits for buying back the M103 and equipment, which is about 5-6 million credits

      Because maps are worse than before. I have the same feeling. This game has got so much worse since Murazor has become head of the balancing department. 

    4. hazzgar

      hazzgar

      Naah. You don't need to relearn as much. I don't play since the game works like shit on my laptop but I played like 100 battles and it's easy to adjust. If I can pull blue to light purple wn8 with fps drops that make me miss 30% more shots then it's not bad. 

  15. So, apparently the M60, 121B, and VK 7201 CW reward tanks are all getting 350 pen HEAT rounds among other more understandable buffs.  Because 'premium ammo needs to be rebalanced' and why not give the M60 a 350mm pen laser?

    1. Tman450

      Tman450

      Not much of a difference from the 330-340 it was before TBH. Maybe a bit easier to pen bullshit tanks like the 268 V4 and Type 5, everything else you were gonna pen anyway before.

  16. You should only be allowed 10 map pings per game, with no counter to let you know how many you have used. On the 11th ping your ammo rack should detonate . . .

      on the 11th ping you should just get a one hour ban and automatically turn blue

      Thats SOOO boring, come on can you not imagine your joy when some raging spergelord starts ping spamming and suddenly you hear the kra-boom of an ammorack.

      i mean

       

      what if both happened

      like you explode and then suddenly you're also banned

      Dont worry man stats mean nothing. And trust me you are more important on this forum than you think! And what really matters is who you are in real life.

  18. I have to confess, I am really enjoying ranked battles right now.  Its a good balance between being hard without being too grindy.

      I'm despising this one slightly less but it is still awful.

      they should've installed ranked ages ago, practically every other MMO game developer in the world respects and understands skill differential.  WG per usual is years behind

  19. WOT Survey

    Would you like to change anything in the current conditions for obtaining chevrons? If yes, what would you like to change? Be as detailed in your answer as possible.

    "Make the conditions for earning XP transparent and make them more relevant to actual game contribution.  Damage at any distance is more valuable than just close range damage alone.  Ranked forces a very heavy brawling meta on players at the expense of medium tanks.  More of your dev team needs to actually play the game to understand this.  Quit punishing well played support tanks in favor of HE sling heavies."

    detailed enough?  I'm sure it will never get read

  20. So I'm curious, now that there is no longer competitive play on NA, will some of the Uni's quit running vanilla?

    1. Fulcrous

      Fulcrous

      more likely to quit the game

    2. Archaic_One

      Archaic_One

      well, thats kind of vanilla I guess

  21. Just popped over and visited Expose WoT for a lol.  They've really fixed the place up, put a lot of effort into it.  A gem of a site . . . sigh

      Because doxing people for a game is so 2014 . . . on the plus side I know have a few new names to add to my HE TK on sight list.  

  22. Fuck HE, seriously, just fuck anything that can delete a tank with one shot.  Its a stupid crutch for bad players and . . . . /rant

      Just type 4 and type 5? I'd say the entire Japanese heavy line starting form tier 5.

  23. So, I log into this big tank game so I can collect and break XMas ornaments -of course- when I noticed something.  The level I ornaments = red, II = yellow, III = green, IV blue, and of course level V ornaments are purple.  WG is programming us like pavlovs dogs . . . 

    1. Tarski

      Tarski

      Or maybe we already had that color scale in use by millions of players and it made sense to use. Heck, I think similar color scales were around before WoT. 

    2. Gr1nch_1

      Gr1nch_1

      Illuminati confirmed? Or maybe blue and purple were royalty colors since the beggining of times... one of those

    3. EndlessAgony

      EndlessAgony

      Have an upvote for the quality tinfoil, OP, but Tarski and Gr1nch are right. I mean, yeah, WG is shit company, but color schemes aren't the thing they are fucking around with...

  24. Merry Christmas Nerds!  I hope you all spend time with your families, get lots of cookies, and I hope all of you get your stockings properly stuffed!  Be well tank friends

  25. OK, stupid question - how do I install the EU client?  I clicked download from wotEU and spent all damned day downloading and it installed a second copy of the NA client on my machine.  FFS

    1. TAdoo87

      TAdoo87

      I am not 100% sure but I think there was some kind of region changer mod. I never tried it myself.

    2. mistervanni

      mistervanni

      you need to check that you are getting the european client, if you click from wargaming.eu "download game" it should say under the orange botton :

      european version/<languageofchoice>

      if not, try messing around on the bottom of the page where u can set ur region/language

      goodluck (i did reinstall after 9,20 this way)
