  1. I've been trying to 3 mark the KV-2 R. Every. Fucking. Game. There are 3 M44s per team. If Wargaming is willing to nerf the progetto because there are 3 of them or more every game then why the hell won't they nerf that fucking abomination? There are people running around with fucking bounty equipment M44s that have a 15 second reload. I've seen poor bastards get perma tracked by one of them if they don't have a repair crew. Its beyond broken. Low tier arty is like high tier arty on crack.

      If it's not an M44, it's a Grille, Hummel or of course a fucking Leffe.  Arty at like tier 5-7 is OP, they didn't nerf the damage and pen proportionally to the same levels that they did the higher tiers.

      Even with the HP buff, the M44 can still one shot some tier 6 TDs with a high roll and pretty much all tier 5 TDs. Yet a T92 can only one shot some tier 9 TDs with a full high roll, certainly not tier 10 TDs, and it has a 47s reload and the M44 has a 19s reload. How the hell they think that is balanced.

      I am pretty sure many of those lower tier arties make people massively over perform.

      Yeh they are tank reward codes so if you don't have the tokens they won't work.

  3. Is the 88 viable on the Tiger II? The lackluster pen might make me reconsider, but the DPM wouldn't be bad...

  4. I'm getting ready to rip out my hair when driving the EBR90. Even the good games feel annoying. Any small bump you drive over can spin the fking tank sideways, which is incredibly annoying. You skidd endlessly and ram houses and walls regularly. Maneuvering around enemy TDs at close quarters can be a nightmare if they know what they're doing.

    It can't carry unless the stars really align on prok or something with 240 damage and shitty pen at tier 9 and shitty view range compared to the other lights (and meds).

    The only thing it does better  than other light tanks is yolo-spotting, which I hate. If you have retards on your team you can work your ass off and the few tanks that actually bother shooting what you spot miss or bounce. Yolo scouting also relies on the enemies shooting poorly as you zig-zag like a moron. So you are putting both your impact on  the game and your life in the hands of other players.

    Rocking a 43% WR on this after 50 games. The 1390 is at 56% after 369 games, lightweight at 59% after a similar number. 

    Regretting ever deciding to play cars,  but I've found that to learn how to beat tanks you find annoying (yes, that includes arty) you need to play them a bit to find out what works. Apparently what works is playing tanks with super-shell velocity or getting lucky.

    Sheesh.

      The EBR 90 is pretty shit to be honest, compare it to the EBR 75, there is not a tier difference of stuff there. 

      Really the only WVs that are decent are the premium and the tier 10, all the rest suck, they lack too much gun power to actually compete and are not fast enough to avoid fire consistently, despite the whines from the bot masses.

      The EBR 75 has a gun that basically competes with the best other tier 8 lights have (if not better because it essentially pumps out 350 alpha), that together with its speed makes it competitive. The tier 10 is the fastest, with the best camo and is the only one with the usable view range, so that allows it compete despite its shit gun.

      The 90 has a gun barely any upgrade on the tier 8, with low alpha for tier 9 and you get like 5kph more speed than the ER 75, meaning its not fast to avoid fire as well because as you go up the tiers gun handling improves and shell velocities improve, so for 5kph more top speed you are facing more APCR standard rounds and tanks like the IS7 that can snap full turret with virtually no bloom, and you are still pumping out 240 alpha with crap DPM and have crappy 330 view range. 

      You just have to get through it, the tier 10 is a massive step up because you get 390 alpha, the 520 alpha HE, the bigger jump in speed, camo and view range so you can have more of an impact in unfavourable maps.

  5. Christ the cars are broken. Both ways. On the right maps they break the game. On the wrong map they are useless as fuck and terrible to drive. Why am I doing this to myself again?

    1. tajj7

      tajj7

      I have not and still don't get the fuss people make about them, they are really not hard to deal with and IMO they help break those OP camping spots, and seem to mainly camping TD players and arty players, they have improved gameplay IMO, too many maps infested with OP TD camping nests where they get all the advantages but WVs actually can yolo spot them and they get arty spotted and killed more often, so whats not to like.

      Yeh it is, doesn't mean its fun, but it makes most players overperform a lot and in the corridor meta it can push easily and drag pubbies along whilst making other pubbies freeze like rabbits in headlights.

      Had one yesterday push the 1 line on Prohk, the dude blocked 10k, if I hadn't had been there and killed it (I did like most of the damage to it) this bob would have won the game for his team.

      T95 is OP as fuck, its probably one of the most OP tanks in the game, you can't have a tank that has a very good massive TD gun, amazing frontal armour and then balance it by terribad mobility, and then buff that mobility by so much and expect the tank not to overperform. Especially in a meta fully of corridor maps and the sweetspot that is tier 9 MM. 

      T95 literally shifts most players up by about 3-4% WR, and most players at tier 9 can;t get near their overall win rate anyway as their WR comes from tier 5 and 6 games. 

      No frontal weakspots or pixel frontal weakspots is what killed Armoured Warfare, at higher tiers the game was just wall to wall MBTs trying to snipe pixel weakspots. WOTs under Murazor was going the same way and its dumb players like that, that have caused the armour meta we have and all the stupid armoured tanks put into the game.

      Premium ammo has and always will be a go to excuse for bad players and bad play, sure it has balance issues and can be annoying, but the actual problem with it is minuscule compared to the hype and fuss about it.

      You won't win conversations with these people because if they admit you are right, they have to admit they are shit and their ego won't let them do that.

  9. Thoughts on Leo 1, Leo Pta and STB now they're on the liver server? Thinking about buying back one of the first two, and maybe taking the STB out for a spin after not playing it for years.

    1. tajj7

      tajj7

      Both Leo 1 and Leo PTA are very nice, very very good guns, high pen, good punch (seeing those 500 rolls), snap and aim super quick, and no real loss of mobility and DPM. Both still paper as fuck though, so will still struggle at times. Both now have 105mm pen HE as well, which with their gun handling/accuracy is nasty, you can snipe like other med lower plates, sides, side turrets etc. for 510 average damage hits, so you can roll like 600 with it. 

      Not played STB-1 enough to comment, only had time to one game and it was a horrible loss.

  10. Foch 155 is the last offering on the BM. I'm glad I grabbed the Blackdog when it was available because not much else was all that interesting. I probably would have picked up the Death Star but not for 23M. That's simply ludicrous.

      Got the Pz V/IV, its dirty as all hell for a tier 5 limited MM tank and great fun to play a lower tank without terrible gun handling.

      Had most of everything else, or at least the same versions (Type, IS-6, T34), so nothing else really took my interest.

  11. So, at what tier are you gonna start with wheeled Baguettes in 1.4? I have the 32k saved on ELC but won't buy the tier VI and will free XP to tier VII (eliting tier VI unlocks almost no modules on VII). Will probably play couple of games in VII and then free XP to VIII, which I will grind normaly  (and mostly in the Frontline mode).

    1. tajj7

      tajj7

      Not going to bother with the tech tree line myself, just going to get the tier 8 premium as its the best tier for tier out of all of them and mainly use it in frontline. 

      The tier 8 is ok, but the tier 9 and 10 are just bad now after their nerfs, they need gun buffs on test IMO, instead they got mobility nerfs and had the boost removed so double nerfed.

      tier 10 is IMO going to rival the Rhm Panzer as the worst tier 10.

  12. I hate that f*king capping mission for 260 (LTs)... 

    It's a hair-pulling nightmare. The description should seriously read "Go ahead and sit in cap circle and have fun while missing out on all the easy cleanup damage and enjoy your frustration after, when your teammates manage to kill the enemy team 2 seconds before you cap."

    OMFG.. Any advice on how to do this without becoming crazy?

    1. tajj7

      tajj7

      Go the reset route with either encounter or assault turned on, go for lower tiers. Especially encounter, people tend to just go sit in that circle from the start, so just let them build up points then reset them. Mines Encounter if you can get the hill you'll get multiple resets.

  13. Need some feedback on the following:
    1. How does the WZ11114 compare tier for tier to the 5A?
    2. How does the Standard B compare tier for tier to the Prog65?
    3. Is the TVP50/51 still relevant in today's meta? 
    4. Is there a best Tier 10 TD? Or are my WT4 and T30 sufficient for the personal campaign missions?

    1. tajj7

      tajj7

      After IS7 buffs I'd say its close to 5A but the 5As better DPM, agility, premium round and gun depression edges it. 

      IS7 still has that turret which with all the premium spam is a massive plus for it.

    1. tajj7

      tajj7

      1. 5A is tier for tier better IMO, it's a tier 10 meta tank, but tier 9 MM is much better, but I personally didn't keep the 1-4 as I think its fairly average for a tier 9 heavy, 

      2. Again Progetto is better tier for tier, Standard Bs DPM is low and the intra-clip of 3s is annoying, but again tier 9 MM is better.

      3. Yes, because it can farm well, you only need slight enemy mistakes or gaps etc. to heavily punish people.

      4. For me the best tier 10 TD is the E4 because its versatile, has a turret and 375 pen APCR, but probably FV4005 and Strv 103B have more high damage potential in them, but are way more situational and map dependent.

  15. Pubbies already crying wheeled vehicles will be broken and invalidate lights with their 420m spotting range when maxed out. Also saying they will rush base, spot all enemy team and your team will magically erase 5k dmg from them. Because teams shoot what is spoted behind hills. Jesus pubs. 

    1. tajj7

      tajj7

      They whine like that because they see stats like 'OMG 80kph' with no ability to translate that attribute into how it actually works in reality. They also see CCs bombing around circling stuff and doing 3k damage in 'highlight' games, ignoring the 5 others where they got one shot.  QB said that he thinks they will literally be the worst tanks to be in if you have a crap team because they can't do much until the game opens up and you need a competent team.

  16. fuck the swede TDs. they'd literally be the first line I removed if I was in charge. before the Type 5 before the 268v4. before fucking arty.

    1. tajj7

      tajj7

      Are they? Maybe arty, but Types are pretty simple, you just spam premium at them, for most tier 9 and 10 tanks with enough premium rounds they become free damage. 

      They are just annoying to fight in other heavies because HE gives no f*cks about armour. 

      But Swedish TDs are a pain in the arse all round, annoying to dig out, annoying and useless on your team.

      Yeh they are super annoying all round, annoying to dig out from the stupid red line camping spots WG has infested on every map and super annoying to have on your team, especially if they are one of your top tiers because they will just red line camp the whole game and you are essentially down a top tier.

      It's not a good map, one side is basically massively open with TD camping hills, then you have a little factory area where heavies brawl and then the bit across the other side of the train tracks where the mediums go on that hill but can't really push because it's just open ground in the front and they'll wander into a cross fire, plus you get screwed over by arty all the time.

      Only decent games I have had are in the heavy brawl and winning that. 

      You can also hilarious sit at either end out of render range on the train tracks and have clear shots into that brawl, noticed it whilst in an Obj. 140 and farmed a Maus and JpE100 with HEAT, but then in another game watch a sh*tbarn farm near 7k damage from there just slinging HESH at all the hull down heavies.

  21. QB: " the 430U has the same aim time as the STB1" no mention to the soft stats tha make the real aim time on the STB1 much worse.

    " The 430U has a turret worse than the t62A" sure QB whatever

    How the fuck people still listen to this guy in 2018. This is almost fake news.

    1. tajj7

      tajj7

      The majority of his viewers won't give a shit either way, even if he did mention the soft stats they wouldn't know or notice that difference. They are generally an ignorant mass who will have already decided something regardless of what he says. If it's Russian med, it's OP as the comments on the K-91 show, it i's a new premium it's OP and pay to win, even though the last like 10 prems WG have released have been nothing of the sort. If the replay is a unicum he'll be spamming gold, using mods, people will actually comment on that before even watching most of the replay. Most of them are ignorant, deluded bobs, who will believe whatever they want about the game if it excuses them in their own mind for being shit. The few that are not, well they learn the basics from QB, and he is good for stuff like that and then they will find out the other shit on their own, they are not the sort of people to take someone's word verbatum, they will go out and research stuff and learn so they can form their own opinion. I seriously doubt very many of QB's viewers are going to be influenced on whether he says a tank is OP or not, he just annoys the people who already know.

    1. tajj7

      tajj7

      Only have the M60 but whilst it is no meta tank, it's much more fun now and super comfy. Plus I think it is the coolest of the other lot, it's an iconic tank not some blueprint tank.

      Gun is amazing, mobility is top notch, you have view range, gun depression, heat round to punish super heavies but no armour so it's not meta.

  23. 430 II is trash now, thanks WG. always wanted to play it like a TD /s

    1. tajj7

      tajj7

      Yeh it's awful, couldn't bounce a single shot from a M41 GF last night, he penned one straight through the turret. That is like 181 pen ffs, that tank used to be able to bully tier 8s, now you are scared of tier 7s. 

      The removal of the armor made the tanks like 50% worse because the armour allowed you to work the rear turret, now it's just a paper awkward rear turreted tank with -4 gun depression. In compensation they brought the gun up by like 10%, you still have no better DPM, gun handling, pen or accuracy than the other tier 9 meds and they don't have -4 gun depression and limited turrets. 

      It's slightly cheaper to play that is about it.

  24. So 277 worth 200k free xp or not?

    1. tajj7

      tajj7

      I wouldn't drop free XP on it just because the T-10 is not a hard grind, it's a solid tank and tier 9 MM is good, and the 277 is not some OP must have tank to get immediately.

      I'm probably going to drop some free XP on the K-91, that tank looks interesting and they have butchered the 430 v2 and I only have about 120k XP earned on that so far.

  25. According to our lord and saviour QB the 268v4 is OP. No shit sherlock.

    On a side note the t110e5 has a worse WR than the Leo1 just above the M103 and Panther 8.8 which are the worst tanks in tiers 8 to 10.

    Is it a coincidence that the top 2 American heavies are third to and second to last tanks for WR? I dont think so

    1. tajj7

      tajj7

      E5 should have never had it's cupola nerfed, they should have nerfed the lower plate back to the old levels (where is was about 180 effective over most of it) and got rid of the BS 250 armour around the drive wheels.

      Hull down heavy with a giant tumour never works, it was below average before the buff and clearly was going to be weak after nerfing the cupola again. Either it should be buffed back or the tumour should get the Fatton treatment and be made like 200 effective but much much smaller, as the Fatton is now a better hull down tank than the E5.
