  1. Way better is Centurion. FV4202 has turret that bounces almost nothing.
  2. Defenders get rekt about 50sec after losing a sector. After that they may return to lost sector but they can't retake it. Attackers can't drive into sector 2 before capturing sector 1. If you go so far get ready to get rekt by npc arty.
  3. Looks like Frontline should be called Sovietline. Most people take Progetto 46 (this game mode is literally made for them) or just everything soviet. Defender, IS-3(A), tier IX LT, vodka Scorpion and the entire family of mediums. Do you want armor? Take soviet. Do you want mobility? Take soviet. Do you want bullshit guns ignoring their own accuracy in their flavor? Takie soviet. I'm playing mostly light tanks and Centurion with Caernarvon. It's frustrating that I need to fully aim to hit something with so called accurate gun when soviet tanks just turn around and put a shot right into me. To make a real difference between shotguns and snipers the worst sniper should have 0,3 acc, not the best. KV-2 with 0,6 base acc may have battle that makes Grille 15 cry in corner.

    Also Frontline and again fire support. 20 shot in max out artillery support means a great gangbang to modules. Such a great idea - who doesn't love losing ~500HP and 3-5 modules in one strike? Go with max free shot with bigger alpha instead of what we have now.

      @nabucodonsor 

      Sorry but no. Even in t8 there are tanks that compete with Ruskies. Also the only good non russian tanks are Bat, Jap, Brit and China heavies? Seriously? T95 and Tortoise are overperforming as hell after buffs. They may be boring but people are doing GREAT in them. M48 Patton is still a good Medium. 13 105 while not as good of a scout as the t100lt it is better at doing damage. Skoda TVP and Progetto are good tanks and their t9 tanks are also good. Hell T8 Italian Med is the best t8 med. Strv 103b is a strange tank to play but it's probably one of the best if not the best t10 td. T9 french non autoloader heavy is good. Lorianne 40T is a great prem.

      Why play the m48 Patton when you can play a 277 or a 5A? Even the russian mediums are now useless compared to these tanks.

      Why play the 13 105 when the Bat is a better dmg dealer and the 100LT is a better scout?

      Why play the t95 when the bobject 263 is in the game? I am not saying it is not strong it is but at least I'd able to move around the map.

      The TVP is good only the end game and the Progetto is ok at best. They do have a niche because they are autoloaders, but I bet that when WG will finally release russian autoloaders they will be better. Just wait and see.

      Saying the Strvb is the best tier X td is not much of a victory as tier X tds are terrible. But I agree i completely forgot about that one (altough I wished it weren't in game)

      1. Why play the m48 patton? First of all you are matched up against meds not heavies. Also Patton has 500 dpm over 277 and 200 over 5a. It also has 400-500 better m/s shell round so you are way better at moving fast moving targets. You are also WAAAAY better at shooting on the move because of 0.05 and 0.07 better dispersion on both moving and tank traverse. You also get 9 deg of gun dep not 7 or 5.5. You also get 20m more vr. Plus you know we are not talking about one best tank in the game. Patton is still good. Do you only play one tank that you consider the best or alternate between a few good ones?

       

      2. Using your logic Waffle E100 was a good tank because it's the best damage dealer but wait, it wasn't. Why? Because a tank is a mix of skills. Elc even 90 is a better scout than lt432 but it's a worse tank. 13 105 is a comparable tank overal to t100lt. It trades something for something. It's slightly worse but still a fun tank.

       

      3. Why play the t95 over 263? t95 overperforms more than 263. So if you are looking for "best tenk" using your logic that's the only reason I need. But also overall better armor + better gun. 

      4. And I bet pigs will fly. T9 Standard b is one of the best t9 meds acording to many players here. Progetto and tvp are stituational but still very fun and good. All that matters. 

      5. It's still the best. All that matters.

  6. They are grinding it. I do the same with bat 12t.
  7. Guys, I'm doing well in Batchat 12t on AP. Don't tell me you need full APCR to kill heavies. There is so much place and so many players so getting flanks is pretty easy.
  8. And again Frontline is full of crap.

    Overtime - yes, help those attacking morons who can't their job in time.

    Artillery strike - add stun because we hate our customers.

    Losing sector and auto kill - how about giving tanks with max speed below 30km/h perk Last Stand which allows them to fight to the end? Nope, it's better to punish players for playing slow tanks.

      I agree with the auto kill thing. I havent played the current one, but in the last season if you were a slow tank and got pushed out, even if you could make it back in time you'd just get farmed in the ass as you drove through the open to avoid being instakilled.

    3. Balthazars

      Balthazars

      Yeah, the auto-kill function is pretty dumb and a major disincentive for playing a slow tank on defence.

      Yeah had my first go of Frontline and experience of auto-kill last night. Realising that losing a sector unleashes the ultimate arty when I'm in my Caravan.... didn't even bother trying to waddle away.

      And why isn't arty banned from this game mode? There's enough shit falling from the sky in it already.

  9. @Archaic_One That's why I don't believe WG about fighting bots and afkers. Just check WR and average distance traveled to eliminate guys like you met.

    LT-432

    I think both this LT and T-100 will be great wheel hunters. Enough mobility to chase them, armor thick enough to bounce all kind of their shells and much better gun. Maybe platooned with T49/Sheridan it will make every wheel regret joining the battle. HE splash destroying their mobility and regular gun doing the rest.

    Upcoming MM changes

    Yes, give us 5-5-5. That will rekt pubbies all the way from their mouths straight to their anuses. They will play 33% as top tiers but in the other 33% they will feel MM's might. Seriously, just give all time Frontline for VIII, remove any airstrike and artillery support and we can play this tier all the time. Meanwhile bring back a balance to X.
  12. Do not fuck with KV-2. Just don't.

    New CV's launched

    For those who don't want to seek these videos.
  14. Running Linux Mint after a few months break. Updating everything in system took me about 10 minutes and there was not a single restart. Meanwhile on Windows 10 I'm afraid to update it for 3 years.

      I don't get what's going on with Microsoft's update developers. The last 4 or 5 quarterly updates were dangerous and had to be delayed and led to official warnings and so forth. I can't tell if Microsoft needs to fire a lot of people, hire a lot of people, or both.

      I've heard that they totally ignore any warnings from their testers.

      Recently I saw an article about how an update had accidentally disabled some users' access to...

      ...Windows Update. 

  15. These are results from my test in which I was trying to get an answer to a question "how hard is to get banned by splashing my teammates?". I was avoiding direct hits but sometimes RNG is RNG. Total shots with a result: 54 Total dmg: 13123 Total stun: 1057 + ~30 from blind shots Total frags on enemy: 3 Shots with dmg or stun to allies: 25 Total team dmg: 4986 Total team stun: 613 Teamkills: 1 with splash Direct hit to an ally: 2 Got blue after 12 shots for 1443 dmg and 253s stun. Done 13 shots for 3543 dmg and 360s AS BLUE PLAYER. What do you think? Ban has ended the test. Used arties: bat 58, T92, CGC.
  16. Only via ticket to support which mean pretty high chance because arty shitters hate when someone shit on them.

    Is win/loss part of the WN8?--if not it should be

    People camp even in Armored Warfare. Against bots in PvE. Don't blame any rating for this. Also what Haswell said about WN8 and WR. I told you this before; just read.
  18. MacusFlash

    Is win/loss part of the WN8?--if not it should be

    That's why we look both at WR and WN8. A player with high WN8 and low WR is camping pussy. No one cares about guys like him.

    Is win/loss part of the WN8?--if not it should be

    Focus on winning and players would play mostly in platoons. Even good but playing solo players would get hurt. There is no WN8 points for assisted dmg because there is no data in API. We may gather current data somehow but without historical data it'd a great lie. The last but least you can't win 1000+ battles without making dmg. As Luna said years ago: "You have to left click enemy before he left click you". It's all about taking away 100% of HP of enemy team.
  20. MacusFlash

    Is win/loss part of the WN8?--if not it should be

    It counts spotting tanks for the first time in battle. It's not about assisted dmg.
  21. Should work right now. Android version has so little options...

    Is win/loss part of the WN8?--if not it should be

    Please google it before asking. It's easy to find http://wiki.wnefficiency.net/pages/WN8#The_Steps_of_WN8_-_The_Formula
  23. Everything was done in one session. Here is all gathered data https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1eKJucx4Z8RhRbZTCZsFl9RP9pNqCpURh3sQ8zGPxMIQ/edit?usp=drivesdk Red means team dmg. Shots that hit more than one tank are featured.
  24. Armored Warfare has such a terrible net code. Lag spike causes freezes and losing literally 2 packets in a row means losing connection. Meanwhile in WoT all I got are minor problems and I'm still in game.

      Also this game should be single player imho

      Isn't the game already single player? You know, you're the only actual human player on your team?

      Sometimes I have such a feeling. Officially in PvE there are 5 human players but when I see some players in action...
