    i skimmed a bit of it, most of it's stuff i pretty much had a grasp on - not the maths or the why's but pretty close to "how"
    i was willing to die on the hill that final acc > aim time several years ago but nobody believed me until the SConq and Grille got into the game

    Hello,

    Many of you already know who I am. Some of you may know me from my WGLNA days, others may recall I'm one of the sponsored streamers, and some may remember that I was the creator of the Equipment 2.0 document.

    I have recently finished a guide for gun mechanics for World of Tanks. I figured I'd share it with this community as I was once as fairly active reader.
    Click the text to access the Ultimate Gun Mechanics Guide.
    If it doesn't work from being overloaded, feel free to read the Google published version (poor formatting warning).
     
    Warning: it is a massive document at over 130 pages.
     
    I don't expect the community here to be too active. But I figured it's good to have a resource like this in WoTLabs at the very least.

    Archaic_One reacted to kolni in Sooo, I bought the infamous CDC... but I need advice   
    play it like ”what if i were in a light tank without light tank camo” or an LT on a city map
    with new equipment this tank is literally worse than ever, but the requirement should reflect that as the only people playing this tank are people who need credits but refuse to buy something from wg again, which could be a small enough number that you might end up playing against your own average
    (check hall of fame to see how many people have at least 50 games on it this month, if it’s less than 10 you’ll raise the mark yourself while playing it which is not an enjoyable experience)

    I don't know, this checks all the new premium tank boxes.
    Over tuned statistics Frustrating to play Toxic to fight Gimmick Vastly more effective premium rounds All we need now is Wargaming to call the gameplay "Dynamic" or say it has "Dynamics" and throw it in a 90 dollar marathon bundle.

    These kinda answers make me kinda wanna ddos the site and never look back so you assholes can move on with your lives.
    To the original poster...it used to be a good site but now its just filled with hateful people comparing epeens.  I would suggest just reading through old content on the forums as thats still useful and never typing a word on the forum or you'll be driven away like above.
      Theres still some good pointers from old threads but these fools are gonna drive away all the new users and related ad revenue relentlessly until people get tired of donating money to Never to pay for this site and it goes off the air.  I mean wtf guys even the WoW site this forum was based on wasnt this bad at the end and i would know i was a member of that one too.

    I remember the chatroom that used to be on this site and the men of culture that used to meet there. Some of that spirit moved to the discord server, but even so it just hasn't been the same. Even the certifiable freaks of nature are all acting like normies these days. Have the good times returned at last?

    Archaic_One got a reaction from ZXrage in Tier 10 medium tank rebalance   
    This all started when they decided to give everything gun depression.  Now its reached its logical absurd extreme and we have a -13 degree depression tank that shows less skin than prom night in mormon country when its in siege mode.
    How hard would it be for WG to just shave 30mm off of the 430U cupolas and watch the stats for a month.  The whole problem with WG is that the notion of incremental balance is unheard of to them.  Hell, they are releasing big patches every few weeks lately, adding/subtracting a few mm at a time would not only give them better data - it would also arouse a lot less outrage from their customers.
    Hell, I don't even play anymore - I just like fanning the flames a bit.  WG still provides me with plenty of fuel.

    I never thought it needed to be removed, they just needed to repair some of the OP TD camps overwatching the cap.  It was always one of my favorite maps because you could actually flank properly.

    Some of what I'm going to say isn't unconventional but I feel like some of the main reasons for others' strife in-game currently isn't being addressed correctly (focused on NA of course):
    99% of the playerbase is undoubtedly braindead now. There are maybe 2-3k players out of the entire server who have some clue of how to play this game, and even less that actually know how to play like a teammate at this point.  WarGaming catered to said shitlords for so long that the game is basically the RU server, only with FAR less players playing on it so EVERY game you have to struggle to get a game that isn't a blow-out unless you're on the other end of it. - I called that this would happen a few months before I officially quit the WGLNAa few years back, and I couldn't have been more right about what I said was going to happen back then. A lot of the maps are fucking garbage now. I think that may be because I don't feel like sitting in the back of the map like a bitch all game (because what's the point of playing so sweaty if there is no end-game reward anymore anyways(or due to the mass amount of TD players playing now)), but as others have said recently, playing aggressively and simply out-playing others via brawling is useless when it comes to actually trying to win games most of the time.  Maps such as Glacier/Malinovka/Prokhorovka are all shit when playing 15v15. Glacier is a matter of whoever wins North first loses due to the mass amount of dickheads rushing into an open field after winning it. Mali is too open with such a lack of pushing ability that it hurts my brain after all of these years, and Prok is the same. I want to consistently be able to push the momentum and be rewarded for being the better player. I rather not have to sit back like a bitch for the second half of the game because half of the other team is full of TDs that will 2-3 shot me from the back of the map after I win my flank single-handedly. On the topic of TDs- WG seems to be making more and more of these BS fake TDs. The TS-5 is an extraordinary example. Why is it that a tier 8 TD is allowed to play more like a heavy tank than any other at tank at the same tier? Seriously, the fact that I have to go out of my way to aim at the bottom of the front of the tank or at the flat front of the cupola while I get shot and insta-penned in the same tier tank is simply retarded. I 100% believe that TDs such as the T28/T95/E3 should be an extreme rarity in TDs with how they are allowed to be played; and yet it seems as if WG is making it the standard for TDs. High pen, good accuracy, decent mobility, amazing camo, great pen tier-for-tier, and all to compensate for what? A lack of a turret? Bitch please. All-in-all I've told others but the only reason I'm back for the time being is due to my friend getting interested in playing this game right now for whatever reason. Personally I find it in a MUCH worse spot than it was in a couple years back, especially when you get into the minute details of tank balance and match-making changes. The game is practically dead in NA, and for good players it is so unbearable I want to slam my head over a keyboard every other match I have to play. I miss the good old days when ther majority of players in a server were those that you could rely on to at least hold W for half a second when needed, but instead this game has become more camp-esque than it was back in early-mid 2011. 
    Also IS-3A is fucking broken btw. I understand people are comparing it to the 703, but if you have a problem reaching 2.8-2.9k DPG in that thing, you're doing something wrong.

    I didn't download this game to spot, I didn't download this game to sit in a clicker and drop orbital HE, I didn't download this game to hide in a bush and blind fire a HESH round halfway across the map into somebody elses bush.  I downloaded this game to drive my Patton to the rubble pile on Himmelsdorf and see how many people I could punch in the dick before I get punched in the dick.  
    I deal with bush campers all day at work.  When I'm home, I want to go toe to toe with Punchy McFacepunch for a while.

    I don't play much anymore, but the few times I recently played I realized why I don't like the game as much as I did a few years ago.  There aren't enough tanks in the games, as in *tanks*.  I distinctly remember a recent game with 7 TDs and 3 arty on each team.  5 actual tanks per team, and luckily there weren't any wheelies in that game. 
    The bush-wookie meta has arisen for a lot of reasons that you guys probably understand far better than me, but at the root of it I like playing tanks, actual tanks (mostly medium tanks) and right now it seems like most players just want to hide in a bush and chuck giant HE and HESH rounds and anything that dares to get spotted.
    I'm sure Kolni can exploit the shit out of this meta and farm 4k dpg from those bushes all day, but for a hyper-aggro pubby like me that just wants to drive to the middle of the map and brawl, the game isn't very fun right now.
