  1. I like the overall concept behind updating and refining the crew system. I'm even kind of excited about the idea of a new system with new possible combinations. However, I just got done watching their little video, and that seems like an over complicated mess. This could just be a knee-jerk reaction and I might get over myself with more info, but yeah not excited about this right now. Some of the things that I don't like, or at least annoy me. The idea that the special little perks, "talents," at the end of each line are more of a trade-off than an overall just bett
  2. You wot M8? Perhaps I didn't make it clear enough, but I do believe that it is totally acceptable to refer to artillery as cancer. I actually find it quite awesome that much of the community have latched onto referring to artillery as cancer. In fact, it is a cathartic experience to destroy the in game equivalent of my affliction. Now having said that, calling artillery and the people who play artillery cancer is most definitely offensive. However, I believe that it's more on the offensive level of calling somebody a retard. This is in contrast to what a lot of people who are staunchly aga
  3. Casual Purple? Meh... How about Purple Poaster Palace? \o/
  4. Well, since we are on the topic of cancer, and whether it's acceptable or not to call artillery "cancer." I suppose I have a somewhat unique perspective on the subject. A little over three years ago I was diagnosed with stage 4 Nodular Lymphocyte-Predominant Hodgkin Lymphoma. Taking a moment to look back on it all, it is amazing the amount of physical and psychological pain that I freely chose to endure. Despite everything, chemo wasn't able to put me into remission. Fortunately my type of lymphoma is fairly slow-growing, until it's not, and despite my physical state being somewhat FUBAR, as o
  5. the teams! Oh THE TEAMS! Just kill me now.

    1. prolix


      No need for that, the teams already did. Oh and you haven't seen shit until you played on the SEA server.

  6. Well, I'm done grinding the A-44! It feels good to have that tank behind me.

      A-44 is literally cancer incarnate. I survived it, but barely.

      Yeah, it's bad, but if it just had either better frontal armor or more gun depression it wouldn't be half bad. Oh well, fuck it. On to the 416!

  7. Cool! I just got the E-25 gifted to me.

  8. Here are the last two. Thanks again for taking the time and effort to do this. #4 Siegfried Line, Standard 1. Hmm, not sure with the best counter for this is, but I suppose that's why I'm answering these things. For one thing, if your team members, who went field, would've spread out deeper into the field. They could have potential shots on the FCM and other tanks in that Far West side of town. Also, your KV-5 huddling in F6 should have maintained his defense of the six line instead of moving back. He's the one who allowed the WZ to get into a position to shoot down the F line at you. 2.
  9. Sorry these are coming in piecemeal, but here's another one done. #3 Airfield, Standard 1. You were trying to get some free damage on any tank trying to get to the ledge at E-7. I think you pushed up because you spotted an opportunity to shoot at the enemy tanks, who were all focused on your Bat on the B-line. I think that waiting, for a few seconds, for the chance to shoot someone in the side as they rush up to the E-7 ledge really isn't that bad of a decision. If in the event someone actually runs up there it ends up being a great decision, and if nobody does then you're still in a good
  10. I'm currently working on answering the rest of the questions, but in the meantime here's my answers for the first to replays. #1 Lakeville, Encounter 1. Take control of town, and forget about Valley. This is because it is encounter mode. In this game your team has a clear advantage in heavies, so aggressively winning town shouldn't be too hard. I mean, unless a lot of your team is too passive. 2. Well, your shot hit on the roof of the IS-6, which the T-30 can easily overmatch, but it looks almost like you aimed at the top of the turret front just left of the gun. You did this, I'm guessi
  11. "They" are trying to tell me what to do, but I won't listen.

I'm not a professional writer, so don't expect perfect grammar or the most eloquent phrasing. What I have written is the truth, and whether you believe me or not doesn't really matter to me.

      You're the one who said anything about reputation. It doesn't matter who said it. If Garbad would have said it, the post still would have been worthless. Regardless of the reaction, it contributes nothing. Garbad's reaction apparently deserved an RO, and unless you have a personal dislike for him, that is dissapointing. However, I respect the moderation team and their decision.

      Also, wtf does anyone being from any country have anything to do with this?

    4. Nope


      Scoutinthahouse ninja'd me with the commemt about if Garbad had written the exact same comment as Viktor. It would have 11+ upboats, been quoted for truth later and everyone would have carried him on their shoulders. Now everyone has a temper tantrum because Garbad reacted big to a tiny comment, which was just one more strike, and got moderated. By mods. On a forum. Tits need to be calmed.

  14. I think artillery would be tolerable, if WG replace the God view with this modded view, and removed the ability for artillery to see tanks outside of the draw range that everyone else is limited to.
  15. 1. How balanced were the teams in terms of tank composition? In what ways do we have the advantage, and what are the implications of this? Looking at the top-tier I would say that they have an advantage in armor because of the E-75 and M-103 to your Lorr.40t and T-54. In the mid-tier your team has an advantage in proper heavy tanks. Finally, your low-tier basically consists of three T-29s, and they are clan mates in a platoon together. So, coordination with themselves isn't out of the question. The Lorr. 40t and T-54 give your team and advantage in tier-9 mobility, and while the enemy has
  16. First place, yeah! You know that was a good way to review a replay. Normally, I just watch somebody do something awesome, or completely retarded, and then read a bunch of posts breaking down the battle. This was better because I had to think critically about what I was watching during the replay, and then I had to refine my thoughts into coherent answers. If it would have stopped right there I still would have learned more about my own knowledge on the map, but you didn't stop there. You provided us with the rubric that outlined what you considered the correct answers to your question
  17. Here is a slightly different way of looking at that crazy AT-15 shot. As you can see the shell miss the gun mantlet, and hit below the auto ricochet zone on the roof. Depending on the angle that spot has somewhere in the realm of 200mm of effective armor. Finally, the AT-15's best gun is fully capable of penetrating that spot on the T-30.
  18. This is probably a mistake, but this is too good of an opportunity to learn what I'm not seeing. And, of course Garbad Points! Because the train was headed towards the hill. Which is rather easy for a small enemy force to hold you up, and even when you win the hill the lemming can't easily derp rush any farther without the threat of getting smashed in the open from camping TDs and cancer. Furthermore, in my rather inconsequential opinion the 1, 2, and 3 lines are very important on this map. In your initial engagement at F1 you used a little hill to hide your hall when poking around the
  19. The M7, T-20, and Pershing make me happy every time.
  20. This sure is a fascinating discussion on the policies of the Nordic countries. Too bad only one side is citing his sources. Oh well, I've got my popcorn, so please continue.
  21. I have to say, I've got mixed feelings about this whole thing. On one hand, view range is a valuable stat to balance, and help determine the role of a tank. However on the other hand, WG will likely screw it up royally before figuring out something that's not entirely unplayable. I know everyone is saying these numbers are placeholders, but it saddens my heart that they are even considering nerfing the T-20's view range by 40m. I guess I'll hold judgment until I can see a full list of the considered view range changes, but since their "placeholders" include buffing the IS-3's view rang
