  1. 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

      Im gonna go ahead and guess that thats something low tier purples would do.

    3. CandyVanMan


      You can keep lower plate covered pretty well there, and with optics you spot everything, it's actually not a bad spot to be in.
      It is of course quite high risk though.

    4. DeItacu


      Middle is goat in any fast heavy if you run Optics I go everytime and get big results


  4. Pubbie from official EU forum: my opinion is more important than facts/stats. You can't say a single word about a tank you have not played.

      @Fulcrous I remember that thread.  That guy was too stubborn and too intent on drumming up traffic for his YouTube channel to admit to being wrong.

      Man my old habit of never visiting the official forum has always proven to be right and saved my last little bit of mental health. 


  5. 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. 

  6. New PC is coming :frenchy:

      Well, 8GB would have been fine, and with that extra $, you could have purchased a better PSU (yours is questionable)

      AMD has significantly improved their drivers; the R9 380 edges out the 960 in almost every game.

    3. MacusFlash


      This is the last moment to buy additional 8BG RAM in reasonable price. Screw you, USA and your dollar :(

      I think this PSU should be enough but I'm not good when it comes to IT stuff.

      Still Shadowplay wins.

    4. Wewum


      Okay, fine :P

  7. 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?

    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.

  8. From The Armored Patrol.

    – For the redesign of the American line of medium tanks. They will be rebalanced due to the low popularity of these machines, there can occur a few buffs. This takes into account the addition of new equipment or even the removal of certain ones, since some US medium tank lag in comparison to the other Meds at the same tier.


    The best medium tank line in the game and... WAT?

      Wait... M4: gud. E8: Gud, T20: best tier 7 med (and only good one) Pershing: Gud, Patton: Gud, M48: meh/Gud(depending on your perspective)



    3. GehakteMolen


      i guess downtiering the whole stuff? M26 as t7, M46 as t8, M48 t9 and M60 t10?

      that ``idea`` is almost as old as wot, and it would make a lot of sense...

      (more historical, bridge from m26 to T32, m26 > SP makes sense and so on)

    4. M4A3E8sherman


      Patton DPM was buffed before, so I doubt they'll overturn that in favor of a few worthless extra mm of pen. Then again, this is WG we're talking about.

  9. Why every gun with "pounder" in its name has to be so fucking inaccurate? Even the brand new 32-pounder on Caernavon is a pure cancer when it comes to reliably hit target even on close combat.

    4. DirtyACE7


      He's absolutely correct by saying what he did. WG is just spinning their bullshit out of control. And Circon is right too about what he said. You would think the maps are designed by some kid randomly doodling on a napkin that WG later found and said, "EUREKA!"

    2. hazzgar


      HP + gun dep + not the shittiest mobility and the gun works. Good prem round also means you are not shit bottom trier. I really liked my m6.

    3. Swoopie


      It just happens to be one of the best T6 heavies along with Kv85. 

    4. OperatorError



      This is a comparison between the M6's gun and an actual tier 8 medium. The order hardly matters.

      DPM: 1,840 (1,976)
      Accuracy: 0.37 (0.36)
      APCR Pen: 241 (243)
      Aim time: 2.68 (2.21)
      Moving Dispersion: 0.19 (0.20)
      Traverse Dispersion: 0.19 (0.20)
      Turret Dispersion: 0.12 (0.12)

      I'm really not understanding the neg-rep, but whatevs. To each his own I guess.


  14. Guys, stop overreacting because of sandbox test values. Leave this kind of behavior to official forum pubs. Do you really think that WG is going to kill its best money maker with this weird changes on live servers?

      and the same can be said for many of the characters, which is what they could have made more episodes out of.

      I actually have fun in rampage, though the strikes are pretty meh

    3. Fulcrous


      If he didn't cover the issue of mission difficulty (because you are deliberately forced to compete against teammates much like FP forces you to compete with clanmates) then QB forever remains on my 'not worth watching' list.

      Combine that with arty strikes and a lack of credit making potential for the average player as well as a plethora of shitters in rentals...

      and you get a failure of a mode that only makes people wish/want to rig.

    4. cpraf104


      The main thing that killed it for me was the strikes. They are basically "welfare to the ungifted", cannibalizing Jackie here. People already bitched about it for strongholds, and then they decide that it's a good idea to add it in in an already shaky gamemode. Yeah, no.

      The idea of some random pubbie shitlord being genuinely outplayed being able to turn the tide by spamming his arty/airstrikes on the guy outplaying him is just disgusting.

  17. T49 is unplayable in 9.15. Misses all the day and hit FCM 50t for... 243HP.

    4. MacusFlash


      @Private_Miros No, it's just my salt :feelsbad: Skoda T50 + 20m + from side = pen for full dmg hit tracks for 270hp <- example of today's T49 gameplay.

  18. 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.

      @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.

      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:

  24. 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.

    1. Show previous comments  2 more
    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.
