  1. A little wedding gift for a friend. 


  2. This war of mine looks promising but from technically side it's a tragedy. Devs support mods but it does absolutely nothing - most mods do not work at all, some barely and right now I'm reinstall the game because of permanent bug (no loot at all).  

  3. Been trying for last several hours to run my cheap market controller on any Steam game. Nope, it still ignores some buttons because reasons. Nothing helps. Good to know that main gaming platform is a garbage when it come to such an easy thing.

  4. Every time I play online I run ping -t command addressed to google.com. Now I know that losing ONE packet may cause connection lost in Armored Warfare. The best net code ever in online only game.

      Already there but I have literally zero time to spare. 

  5. "Happy player" by WG means "happy shitter". 

    1. DirtyACE7


      And shitters are happy because ignorance is bliss.

  6. Got banned for 14 days on official forum. It looks like that trolls are under official WG protection. This "happy player" idea is truly terrific. 

    Probably even with arty and wheels being removed, balance restored and end of OP or broken prem tanks I wouldn't return to WoT. Not a chance untill terrible people are on the pedestal.

      I mean... Wg made a notorious shitposter a mod on the wows eu forum, so... XD

      How is she still alive?

      Surprised she didn’t sue the hoodie manufacturer for not providing a warning label that wearing a hood might impede peripheral vision.

      But ultimately she has no choice but to sue because of the US’ fucked health system. She’s just playing by the unsaid rules.

  8. Got an educational warning on official forum for ZERO points. I asked chief mod why (I did NOT say anything about appeal). What happened? Community Manager responded that they will keep this warning with its ONE POINT. I'm telling him there were ZERO points. No effect...

    I tell you this if you wonder why WoT in such a terrible state.  

    1. Wanderjar


      you expect logic and rationale from the main forums? :kjugh:

    2. Enroh


      pfft everyone over there has a god complex and think their shit doesnt stink

    3. WhatTheSkara


      Well my latest chat ban was issued without me even typing anything as I have chat turned off, the only messages I sent were to friends and clan chat.

  9. If you have Netflix then watch Luficer. Season 3 is a bit boring but 4th makes devil great again.

      My wife loves that show. I'm a kind of meh about it.

    3. kolni


      I didnt like it. A lot of character decisions just made no sense to me at all and a lighthearted religious crime show is a too thin of a line to walk on

      granted i only watched s1, but just like Got I just can’t rationalise watching long enough until it gets good

    4. DirtyACE7


      I thought GoT got good pretty much right away from the very first episode or at least the second.

      Different strokes for different folks I guess.

  10. Literally 5 sec more and I'd get my general in FL. BTW the gameplay is in a terrible state.

    1. DirtyACE7


      FL, just like randoms, is populated mostly by brain-dead idiots who do not understand the simple point of FL and how it is much better for all to prolong matches to get the benefits. I don't know how many times I see a dumbass lieutenant or captain rushing in to kill the turrets. Just pure idiocy. I wish TKing was still allowed in FL because I'd be TKing these morons to prevent them from killing the "objectives".

    2. NightmareMk9


      I got 2 Generals last night even with all the idiots.  One game on the attacking side the morons could not take a SINGLE CAP POINT!!!  I only managed LT on that loss. 

    3. sundanceHelix


      Yes but I get to grind all my T8s from stock without using free exp, so I'm not complaining much. Gameplay still shit.

  11. For several months I was struggling with missing free space on my SSD (system disk). Literally nothing on Windows was showing me a file or a folder taking ~50GB. Finally via Linux I detected a guilty file. It was System Volume Information which should be a place for recovery stuff. Thanks to some great internet advice I get rid of that shit and blocked max size to 1GB (default could take 100% of SSD). 
    Funny thing - it should never happen because years ago I've blocked recovery for this disk. This is how Microsoft fucks us all. 

  12. Armored Warfare in a nutshell: ATGM, ATGM, ATGM.

      Armoured warfare still exists?

    3. MacusFlash


      @Assassin7 Not for long. It looks like devs want it dead. 

    4. Zinn


      That game is such a wasted opportunity. They were so close to make the WoT everyone wanted and yet decided to go completely in the same direction WoT did because short term growth > long term profitability  :doge:

  13. CQMM9-QMW5N-EHHV2 - Plague Inc: Evolved Steam cod. Hope it works.

    1. Deus__Ex__Machina


      someone used it already btw

      someone used it already btw

    2. MacusFlash


      Have no idea. I posted steam code from humble bundle but not a gift one. IIRC it shouldn't block it for someone else so probably someone was a dick... 

  14. Let's a play a game. Tell me which camo values belong to tier X light tanks. There are two MT spies among them. Do not cheat or SerB will curse you with bad RNG.

      ATM trees a have more armour than a Leopard

    3. hazzgar


      I'm pretty sure those hay bales have more armor since I never flipped my tank on a leopard but I did on a hale bale. 

    4. nabucodonsor


      Also you cant pen them and block your shots so yeah. WG hitboxes are OP

  15. New T49 video. This time something more cinematic.


  16. The official forum. 

    Mod deleted my post because (stop eating or drinking right now) someone COULD answer to this with insults. I did not broke any forum rules but I received an educational warning for a possibility that someone may do something bad. 

    It's beyond any reasoning.

      @Haswell Life As a Fatal Sexually Transmitted Disease.

    4. Hellsfog


      Mods are terrible. On NA they may have gotten a little better but every now and then Volier Zct (or whatever the name is  ) comes through and shits the place up. 

  17. Two last battles from my arty team killing limit test.



    1. Haswell


      So as long as you don't actually hit anyone directly, you'll never get banned? :doge:

    2. Jesse_the_Scout


      I need the TL;DR version. Can we sabotage arty by team killing with it until the plebs finally turn against it?

    3. MacusFlash


      @Haswell Almost. Just play several normal games to get rid of blue nick and then resume TK crusade.

      @Jesse_the_Scout I was thinking about that. 

  18. 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.

      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. 

    3. nabucodonsor


      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)


    4. hazzgar


      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. 

  19. 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.

    2. Assassin7


      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


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

    4. sohojacques


      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.

  20. Do not fuck with KV-2. Just don't.


  21. 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.

    1. Tarski


      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. 

    2. MacusFlash


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

    3. Tarski


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

      ...Windows Update. 

  22. 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.

      1 hour ago, MacusFlash said:

      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?

    3. MacusFlash


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

    4. Haswell


      Hook me up if you ever decide to waste time on it, I still play the bloody thing occasionally.

  23. I'm tired of what WoT has became. HD maps full of bad hitboxes, corridors and super spots for tanks with both great guns and camo. Totally fucked up balance with tier XI, one shot guns on X, minimal difference between sniper guns and brawl ones, armor layouts giving OP EFA. Artillery being a cancer of this game and combined with XVM it's just like hitting a pinata. 

    WG does nothing to give me a reason to pay for WoT. 

    Yeah, I need friends.

    Second thing. I wrote an e-mail to Rita according this video of QuickyBaby because I can't reach him directly. It was December 27th. Nothing. Totally ignored. I love it. The case was/is about a guy in batchat who was using illegal mod showing destroyed objects on a minimap. Link to battle with the mod enabled. So Rita did nothing. Maybe QB did? Nope. He's too busy making new videos despite people telling him in comments how unfair was the mentioned battle. 

    How the fuck are we supposed to get high quality gameplay when even CCs do not get a single shit about it? All they want are views so they get money. Only Jingles had balls during Fochgate.

      'TheFallenTrees' still works? Thought WG patched that mod out in 8.12

    3. MacusFlash


      @Sapros Thanks for advice. Also look at this https://youtu.be/83JdQLZ4BZI?t=568 - case from 2 years ago. Then the same battle with destruction mod https://youtu.be/ramw7Gx38s8?t=576 This CC ignored people telling him it was a cheat.


    4. DHP


      Just saw QB videos i don't know how he could have missed it. The E4 and the Tortoise is so obvious he is using destroyed object mod it's crazy. 

  24. This year I gave you my DIY... An epoxy resin + wood + good YT channel = home made pendant for a fiancee.
