  1. With my WoT buddy passing away a couple days ago I'm going to retire my account as playing doesnt feel right anymore. This game has been a huge part of my life the past 8 years and contains many of my worst moments as a person. I'm at a point in my life now where I'm genuinely happy and not the unstable lunatic who took WoT as life or death. Idk how to properly say goodbye to a great friend, but I'm going to start by shelving WoT and its memories. I don't game much anymore between work and rock climbing, so this is a good point to end it.

    Take care wotlabs, it's been a weird ride from age 17 to 25, but I'm glad it happened.

      As for losing a wot buddy, yeah, its weird, i played at some point multiple times a week with igo and eul (or body) and one day, he simply never logged back on again, and after a while, we knew, he would never log on again...(we knew he had cancer and it was looking bad) other clan member died in car crash, he wasnt driver, just going back hom with some friends (Morphelo)

      Igo_ hes last game was: 07/10/2016, we keep him in the clan, as dunno, memorial, that these strange internet ppl wont forget him, morphello got kicked, because hes sister sometimes played some games, and it was weird seeing him online, we asked here, and it was fine...

      (Body even bother uploading a youtube video:

       

  2. With all the HP buffs I think I can handily 1k DPG the luchs now lol

      It was ny favourite tank, 9 years ago. :D

    2. SchnitzelTruck

      SchnitzelTruck

      It always was my favorite and still is

  3. The amount of 300+ pen shots that im bouncing on the GSOR1008 turret is a bit absurd. I miss the days when there were only 4 autoloaders in the game, and you could go an entire session without encountering one.

      If you can't handle the HEAT stay out of the Roomba 

  5. Purchased: The Tiger II successfully purchased. Spent credits: 2,450,000.

    I'm back!

      Aaaaand my Lowe's turret has turned to absolute butter since I last played :(

      first game in tiger2. Top tier, 1k damage, 4.2k assist. That's how you top tier heavy my dudes

  6. I'm in the market for a Miata and found a beauty with low miles and good price. Fucker covered the entire rear in Hawaii stickers including the convertible top. Another one had American flag decals on the doors. I hate car shopping

      BRZ/86's are technically more practical because of the +2 and trunk, but I'm not sure if that would account for the higher price

    4. SchnitzelTruck

      SchnitzelTruck

      By far more practical. I may wait till end of 2021 since there's some fun cars coming out and I'll be getting a big pay raise.

      The newly up-engined BRZ interests me and the Elantra N sounds spicy.

  7. Minor question. Is turbo worth dropping one of the tried and true rammer/stab/optics? I'm seeing posts with people suggesting turbo but in the most extreme cases I'm seeing it net only around 2 more HP/ton. Is it for the higher top speed to hit key forward positions faster? Obviously it depends on the tank.

    Unrelated, but we all know Big Turbo >>> Naturally Aspirated

      Extremely useful on E5 and Caern AX, fun on fast meds, and mandatory for tanks that have like a 20-25 top speed.

    3. Jesse_the_Scout

      Jesse_the_Scout

      I think TC is way more useful than rammer on a lot of tanks. At least it feels better, because you can actually bail out of a bad situation or take an early position better. Mobility can be very subtle in how useful it is.

    4. CandyVanMan

      CandyVanMan

      Worth it on M48 and maybe on Type 61, those are the tanks I use it on, and feel there's a benefit to it.

  8. Thinking of returning since covid has ruined my non-gaming hobbies. How much has solopubbing suffered in the past couple years? If its significantly worse than it used to be I probably wont bother.

      The only time i've had fun since 1.0 was spamming VK 7201. Even that isnt fun now.

    3. GehakteMolen

      GehakteMolen

      yeah, just dont play tier 10 tanks, its imo just recipe for rage and fuck games... (tier 10 always was the shitter tier, but WG managed so somehow make it even worse...)

    4. PityFool

      PityFool

      Can agree I tend to avoid tier 10 now, tier 8-9 is primo

  9. The AI in WoT is really good! With so many dialogue options it's probably the best immersive rpg I've ever played. It's like the AI is actually having a conversation and they react to your choices! Incredible! 

    1. echo9835

      echo9835

      It isn't very smart tho. Says a lot of dumb shit.

    2. CandyVanMan

      CandyVanMan

      You clearly don't play on EU server.

      The AI is terrible here, and the language files seem to be mixed.

    3. SchnitzelTruck

      SchnitzelTruck

      The tactical AI is unfortunately worse than civ5. Overall I'll give WoT an 8/10. I've never had a game fill me with such raw emotion before

  10. Kranvagn/emil2 and T54e1 were changed since I last played. How are they these days? Im not reinstalling, just curious. Looks like the Swedes became T57-esque flexible autoloaders.

      I didnt notice the Maus/E100 armor buff. Kran can basically altF4 when it sees one huh

      PityFool

      @lavawing Fair points. Interesting that its top 3, I would not have picked it. What account do you play on btw?

      @SchnitzelTruck Yea, mostly the E100. The maus turret is still quite soft, especially through the gun mantlet.

    4. lavawing

      lavawing

      @PityFool  the Emil reloads its clip in like 20 ish seconds, giving it some of the highest DPM in class, clip or no clip. so while it might not feel particularly strong, it's still very capable

      sauce: https://gunmarks.poliroid.ru/

      i play on this ac: https://wotstats.org/stats/sea/lavawing/ and my hobby is throwing games

      @SchnitzelTruck 300 heat pen is not enough against some 9s....

  11. I drifted my eco shitbox today and feel like a 11/10 pro driver

    Unrelated, forza has been purchased

      can confirm. game is just, fun. and designed in a way to allow people to just have fun. So different from every other game these days

  12. Im thinking of buying forza horizon 4. Would be my first racing game, is it possible to play with keyboard and mouse? Obviously it would be massively better with an actual wheel setup

      Veloster N. I honestly just enjoy how it looks plus everyone already has a GTI. I want something different

    4. MagicalFlyingFox

      MagicalFlyingFox

      Veloster.... Thing has 3 doors, 2 on one side and 1 massive one on the other.

      Goes alright too. 

  13. Im absolute shit at this game now. 2 year hiatus is too intense, nothing is the same anymore. All tactics that worked well before no longer do. Every tiniest mistake is punished so much harsher than before. Armor profiles no longer have reasonable weakpoints. Im struggling to keep 3k dpg in tier9s and games seem to take only 4 minutes on average now. Such a small window to do anything meaningful. The maps seem so much worse as well

      Looks like playing aggressively is no longer possible. I uninstalled. Game has gone to such shit that there isn't a single moment of fun I've had in the past 2 weeks. I cant do this anymore, its seriously the worst gaming experience ive ever endured.

    3. sohojacques

      Game went from having a lot of problems to one purely designed for camping pubbie shitlords with the map changes in patch 1.0. 

    4. Jesse_the_Scout

      Jesse_the_Scout

      It's weird, I've actually kinda liked tanks lately even though my WIN rate is in the toilet and I don't think the gameplay has improved dramatically as of late. I probably have a brain tumor.

  14. I was wondering why my fv4005 felt absolutely unplayable. They nerfed the acc from .38 to .42 at some point in the past 2 years. Fun's over in my only braindead play4fun tank. Cant even snapshot enemies at 100m anymore and actually penetrating things is no longer possible. Sad to sell it. They really are killing everything I found fun about the game. Only tanks to play anymore are hulldown pixel snipers.

    1. kolni

      kolni

      FV4005 was so overbuffed though that it became such a big problem in tier 10, when Types were still meta it wasn't unusual to have half a team with HE primarily loaded and it was just a change for the greater good

      I loved my FV, most fun tank in the game after 50B for me but man what I was doing to the people playing against me is something I would never, ever tolerate happening against me, and then it became a meta tank and became more of a reason to stick to only meta tanks, because pixelsniping tanks generally don't get oneshot by FVs and there were literally 3 per team on bad days in the full tier 10 games

    2. SchnitzelTruck

      SchnitzelTruck

      Im not unhappy that its not worth playing anymore as its better for the game in general. It's entirely warranted to make it so disgusting that it gives no joy, but its still saddens me that my anti tilt tank is gone.

  15. So every 4th game or so I play is entirely unplayable due to 30+ seconds where my entire game runs normally, everyone else in the match is capable of moving and shooting as normal (including shooting me) but my tank acts as if my client is disconnected. Ill by spinning in circles uncontrollably for 30+ seconds. Anyone know what the hell this problem is? I didn't even know this was possible. It seems like im receiving packets perfectly fine but cannot send out any info???

      SchnitzelTruck

      @Deus__Ex__Machina Because no other game touches me like WoT

  16. It's official, I've returned while I wait out the virus. As someone who hasn't played in 2 years, are double barrel heavies, brit lights and wheeliebois enjoyable? Doesn't look like anything else is new.

      Mahou players are still committed to being as edgy/cringy as possible. I guess not all things change.

      The double barrel heavies are fun tho. The amount of times I've baited a one shottable enemy out of cover by using 1 of my 2 shots is hilarious.

      PTA mobility got nerfed with the gun buffs

      Wheelies are at least 2x more annoying than arty. Everything has higher alpha now. Everything can hulldown with impunity because universal armor buffs. Soooo... can I have the WoT from 5 years ago back? Only good thing I've noticed so far is that type5s no longer derp.

  17. 2 years without WoT and now im contemplating returning due to the shutdown and my horrendous boredom

      no fun because theres no all chat to collect tears anymore

  18. Every time I feel like wot could be fun I take a look at this forum and my urge dies. Wotlabs, the nicotine patch of tanks

  19. well, is7 is still total paper garbage with a shit gun and trashy mobility.

    Just managed to bounce on a 50b turret 3x.

  20. 75% crew M48, first battle, just under 10k combined. Well alrighty then

    1. MacusFlash

      MacusFlash

      Meanwhile my M48 has 25/15/5 - shots/hits/pens. I don't get it. On both common test and sandbox M48 is great but when I play it on regular server I get shit RNG.

    2. SchnitzelTruck

      SchnitzelTruck

      I missed half my shots also, however I simply shot a lot :D

      my first game postbuff was 8,7k damage, shit's amazing yo

      Turret rotation is slow too

  25. Got TK'd by some random e100 shooting my LT in the ass with HE for all my HP in the first 30 secs of the game. Then he and his platoon mates proceed to afk.

    If you oppose team damage removal you are mentally challenged

      Yeah... unfortunately WG believes that an automated system is effective when so many people get away scot-free by abusing the system.

      Last guy who tk'd me ended up getting a 7 day ban because I sent a ticket explaining how people abuse the automated team damage system and how discretion is necessary to prevent future griefing. I basically told them that by not taking action/discretion to punish, WG is approving of tking on a daily basis. Took like 5 minutes but it was worth it xd. Maybe I just got lucky that it wasn't a mod who didn't give 2 shits.

      It's a shame that this game is literally more toxic than LoL and CSGO combined.
