    @It's_Matra (a) how do you save a server in Discord (I seem to have found the BRAH one) is there some tab?,

    and (b) please send me an invite for the LAVA/LOTI one, which I now cannot find,

    (c ) can you have two servers open at the same time?


    Yes, once joined it should show on the leftmost bar and you just click on them to change servers, it's pretty much instant and allows you to chat on one channel whilst typing in another. I think voice can only be on one server at a time though...


    You are still showing as having joined the BRAH and LAVA/LOTI/1UP server too.

    Can you get Discord on iphones?

    Yes, and can use voice too unlike Slack (and you have to pay for TS app!!)

    I'd suggest it to your officers as it's a much more powerful tool and can have everything in a single place. Permissions are easier to setup, overlay is a million times better etc.

    Hi Purps,

    I play pure with no Mods, always have, excepting XVM.



    I use my own xvm config which turns all the stats rubbish off and offers a few aesthetic tweaks like re-arranging the end game information, players name/clan tag in-game, enemy tank spotted markers and damagelog (though this will be vanilla soon).

    On top of that I use:

    • My reload announcing script: which I find useful for communicating with the team as it doesn't spam a load of useless crappy info
    • Battle Assistant: as I like to play arty and it does help from time to time - I could not have made those two shots with the normal view

    The other mods that are in my thread I don't actually use, they are for others. Sometimes I load the freecam replay mod if I'm doing anything fancy recording-wise but that's about it.


    Vanilla is almost perfect now - I made my XVM config to just make it that little bit more perfect (and added options/user guide for those who want to tweak their own settings. I was going to make an installer but I don't have the time/resources to put into making one)

  4. Thankfully due to the 'vanilla' nature of the modpack, the damagelog and hitlog are disabled by default (using in-game options instead).

    I will be keeping my versions of the XVM hit/damagelog available as 'extras' on the next release (which will make some of you happy). I might remove them at a later date - haven't decided yet. I've started removing bits that I don't use anyway.

    I won't be discontinuing this modpack just yet as there are some useful aesthetic tweaks that are handy when playing the game.

    woman *sigh


    Please do as I told you - plug the monitor cable into the back of the motherboard to use the iGPU and report back. Diagnosing a problem works best with a somewhat systematic approach, you 're all over the place.


    edit: and pull out the GPU (390 if I remember it right?) before doing so.

    You do realise you are asking a woman to do something logical...?

    What is it with some tanks...... I'm grinding the Wedish tanks recently

    STRV-74 T6 Swedish tank WN8 1821 with a 67% win rate
    IKV-65 Alt 2 Swedish TD WN8 1785 with a 51% Win rate

    I just cannot understand how by all measures my WN8 performance has no correlation to win rate. Surely my E25 win rate should be higher with that WN8 ?

    All tanks have over 50 games and I never play in platoons. Can someone explain ?


    One is taking an active role in helping to secure wins whilst the other is most likely camping somewhere watching a position where you aren't contributing to the team's efforts.

    Performance in each tank is 'above server average'.

    Mirroring other peoples comments: Play to win - which usually involves dealing damage BUT you have to do it in an effective way; securing kills on low HP targets to get enemy tanks out of the game, helping team mates damage/kill isolated enemies (leaving you more tanks to kill theirs). WoT is a numbers game primarily - if they (the team) work together, even the best players struggle to kill 2+ noobs who work together at the same time.

    Watch any replay where they secure a Kolobanovs medal  and you'll notice that 95% of these the enemy approach 1 by 1 - negating their numerical advantage.

    TL;DR: A player who deals a ton of damage should also have the WR to show for it, but there are players who do have the damage but lack the WR which indicates a more selfish play. 

    Or they play a fair bit of arty

    Arty relies heavily on a team effort, to spot and let you work etc. Damage tends to be high but WR tends to be low unless in platoons (for most arty players)

    This seems to happen a lot in the tiers I'm playing, on almost every map. A lovely long lemming train starts and then everyone joins the lemming express to death. 

    When this happens I just can't help myself, I automatically defend the open side, no matter what tank I'm in.

    Am I doing the right thing or is it not as simple as it seems?

    You are doing the wrong thing, you are acting as a 'lone wolf' and not part of the team.

    Support the team in anyway you can - even if it means going against your 'judgement'. Never rely on your team to support you but always be somewhere that you can support them.


    Two guns are far better than one (2 guns vs 1 is the equivalent of having 4 tanks! I can explain the maths but it would bore you), find isolated enemies who are shooting at your team, flank them and kill them. Or get them to look your way so the team get better shots etc.


    Two things you can do to help your team - know when to run away so you can stay alive for longer; relocate to a better position to support them. If they push too far then you may have to leave some to die and secure some kills.

    The second is to secure kills when you can - see a tank on low HP? Kill it and get it out of the game, don't be afraid to use hitpoints late game to secure kills. If you can take a 390 shot but able to take out two guns then do it! Unless you can do it without losing the 390hp :P

    Usually if its something like getting the top gun but cant mount it due to needing upgrading suspension, i would rather use my free xp once to get the top gun and mount the enhanced torsion bars that will allow me to put it on and than grind the rest :)

    You can do that - though you do lose the other benefits of upgraded tracks other than it's load limit


    Interesting..... Well looking at your shown stats (sorry to point that out but just curious) dont you think that maybe you need to slow down a little and learn the game mechanics and tank weak spots?

    Fair enough on skipping low tiers for most people up to like tier 6 for example and then start to grind but by learning the tanks you are up against, even with the 2+ MM, it would definitely help you get better and improve, if of course you are wanting to get better as no one can force you, just wondering :)


    HAHAHAHAHAHAHA Do you have any idea who that is who you are calling a noob? The same advice you gave should also be considered by yourself... I'd also include learning when to make a tactical retreat to your advice too. The longer you stay alive the more you can do to help your team.

    Don't go to flanks on your own and call your team noobs, if you MUST go to that flank then be sure you are in a position where you can support your team and vice versa; NEVER trust your team to support you, but always support your team.

  9. I'll be blowing some dust off an old 'mod' and updating it soon (now that it's easier to edit) and re-release the generic XVM blocker.


    What will it do?

    • It will block communications between your computer and the XVM stats server.

    What does this mean?

    • It means that you won't be able to use the unicorn poop version of XVM and stats will not be shown.
    • It also means that you will not show to others that you use XVM, though you will still be able to use all of the 'non-stats' based features of XVM.
    • You will be less focussed on enemy/ally WN8 and more focussed on winning. Treat everyone as a good player until you see their reactions to your actions!
    • You also won't be able to use XMQP features (not that anyone does anyway).

    What can't it do?

    • It can't make you win games, it can only remove the demoralising effect that XVM has on many players.
    • It can't show you as a non-xvm user until your login token expires (7 days iirc) and the 30 day period following that. If you log into the XVM website for any reason to change something then you will show as a 'previous user' for another 30 days.
    • It can't make cups of tea.
    • It can't get you laid (sorry!)

    Not sure if this was directed at me....if it is peace.....but I did read the first post and as I said, I am new to all this.  So explain what the expected value has to do with my Win8 changing.  I can probably take an educated guess, but I want to get the right answer.

    As you're new I will spell it for you



    There is no 'I' between the W and N.

    I'd also recommend reading all pages before commenting as you will read some pure comedy gold and learn a thing or two about stats and metrics etc. :)

    anyway just wanted to shut down the hater #shutdown https://www.twitch.tv/adztownstrike/v/115187457 go here to see how this redline e50 padder plays. #nobanterforum #toomanyna

    I've stayed neutral on this until now... when you didn't take my advice and shut your cockholster.

    It doesn't matter if you are 'trolling' - the more you post, the more you are coming across as a conglomerate of intellectual constipation. People will not think of you as a 'troll' or someone to 'recover their reputation'... they will just think of you as an idiot.

    In fact, I'm pretty sure your name is now synonymous with retarded.

    I'm only on page 12 of this thread but something I want to state.


    A lot of you are bashing on people for aiming for high WN8 etc. However, why can't we? What else are you going to aim for instead? Like seriously, in CSGO you can aim for global, league the highest league etc. What do you expect people to aim for on here? WN8 is a clear metric which people look at as the bible. Look at people who complain about being 'XVM focused' (I am not denying it happens) it's something which people follow as someone being a good player. 


    It's something for people to aim for. I don't give a shit if you think it's broken because it gives me (and others)something to achieve. WN8 and avg dmg in my tier 10's are my two main things I aim for as they're clear indicators that I am improving. 


    My two cents, don't flame me pls.

    WN8 is a metric to see player improvement, it's not an exact measure of skill. It can be used as a base and a reference but that's where it ends.

    It can be too easily 'enhanced' or 'altered' through padding - like most metrics. Most people when they saw the change were like; 'awww I've gone down a few internet points' but then we got over it realising that it's just a number. I think only two people were triggered.

    Im sorry but i was more salt than meat last night. I hate it when people call my stats into question its pretty annoying. I work realy hard to achive good stats then you all come here and call me a padder. Even though i have proved i can 3 mark meds and get 4k avg sessions. (Dmg) i get that dropping 1300 wn8 is suspicous but anyone can see on noobmeter that i dont play many tanks at all so e50 has a relativly latge slice of my limited anount if games.  Just you must undertstand why i was angry. I dropped from super unicum to blue noob over night due to a "joke" yes my winrate is only 60% but im sorry. If you cant accept that at times i am a better player than some of you. Your probs the one who needs to grow up. I dont usually moan about stats unless someone calls me a noob. But all the pubbies care about wn8 as you can see here and even qb has it in his title. This is why im upset. I was close to 4k. Yes it means nothing but it was a nice perons goal to get towards to make me feel better. Now ive run out of time to do it cos exams are coming up and i gotta get a job. Well anyway sorry for being a dick. And i hope you dont think to ill of me. And yes i can take a joke. But not when it lasts a whole day and its so vicous. ..

    QB has it in his title because he wants to utilise a made up metric via search terms to appear more often and 'better' than the whiney little bitch that he is. Anyone who disagrees with him - or samples the 'bad bits' of his streams gets given takedown requests, lawsuits or simply have their comments deleted.

    Lets put it like this... QB used to believe that capping points was more important than damage up until about 18 months ago as he used the efficiency metric to judge a player's skill. [insert your argument is invalid comment here]

    To be fair I commend you on writing such a post as above - but do you know the best thing you could have done? Taken a man up pill, swallowed your pride and stayed quiet. By coming back you will be opening yourself to much more flak.

    If YOU consider yourself to be good at the game is that not enough? Did you really have to come onto a forum and complain about it making yourself look rather foolish? You should not need the approval of strangers or peers.

    Now you get people calling you a red-line sniper and all sorts of other things that you don't want to hear. Even going on about dpg and 3 marking - everyone 'knows' (or at the very least assumes) that you would be slinging a lot of premium rounds; which again, puts you open for more flak from those who 'disagree' with your point of view or use of premium rounds.

    Just take my advice from this neutral post and try not to embarrass yourself any further - even if it has been absolute comedy gold with some of the responses on here.




  13. Just read through all 16 amazing pages and I have no idea how this image has not yet been posted



    However I believe the salt mine image [posted earlier] might be a better image to relate to the thread in general.

    I've gone from unicum to blunicum - but you know what? It won't take me long to play other tanks to be unicum again. It's only a number... fun has no metric.

  14. It purely depends on a tank;

    If it requires speed to be effective - free xp the tracks engine

    If it's capable but can't mount equipment - free xp tracks

    It it's effectiveness relies on it's turret or gun - free xp the turret/gun (namely the Conqueror before the Cent AX was introduced!! Everyone could just lol-pen your stock turret)

    If it's the T28 prototype then skip it altogether (I made the mistake of grinding from stock with no free xp - this was the tank that taught me how to use free xp!!)

  15. Introducing the new and revamped MatraMod utilities mod:

    MatraMod2 Utilities Mod

    What is this I hear you ask - well it's essentially what Autoaim+ eventually became but I removed all the junk leaving only the stuff that you would find useful and removed the ability to re-enable the 'illegal' autoaim (which is very easy to do!) along with also removing the partial automation on repairs as this was questionable with Wargaming's stance on mods.

    So what does it do?

    You have multiple options in the config file and I will explain them below

        "reload_announcer": {
            "autoclip": false,
            "hotkeyMap": true
        "safeshotDead": true,
        "safeshotAlly": false,
        "spotted": false

    autoclip will notify your team that you are reloading when your drum/magazine is empty of shells (autoloaders only). It uses the in-game reload key so does not spam more info like position or what you had for breakfast.

    hotkeyMap is a bit more advanced and notifies your team when you are reloading partial clips - BUT it's mapped using the in-game settings to whatever your 'reload drum' key is (C by default). Works the same way as above with regards to messaging. You can have both options enabled as they can work side by side. Personally I just use this but it's your call.

    safeshotDead prevents you from shooting a recently deceased tank - thus saving your shell for better use

    safeshotAlly prevents you from accidentally (or on purpose) shooting team mates. You cannot disable this in-game - I made it this way deliberately, so either don't play with it enabled if you don't want to play nice.

    Neither safeshot option will spam chat with some bollocks like 'you're blocking my shot' or 'I'm a noob who likes to click on tanks before a battle' or 'I don't know how to use mods so this message is enabled and I'm a twat'.

    Last but not least is spotted. This will send the in-game help command [F7] when you:

    • Have sixth sense as a perk
    • Get spotted by the enemy

    Again no bollocks in chat like 'oh I have been spotted at J0 with my pants down and my dick in my hand'


    The lady below is also included completely free of charge with every download of this mod*


    *By lady I mean this image and you can download if for free by right clicking... what, you wanted the real thing? Stop reading this and go out to pick up some hot chick instead.




    The information here is also found with a bit less 'flair' in my Online Documentation for my modpack

    Oh and to top it off - I won't be using any kind of 'protection' or code obfuscation so you can see exactly what you get in the tin - If you're from Yorkshire, England (that's in the UK for you Yanks; Hollywood seems to think that you need to know the full details of where somewhere is) then the last bit of that sentence is pronounced 'tin 'tin tin
