    WG is giving it side armor that can be over-matched by guns over 120 mm? So, a KV-3 will be much more dangerous to a side-scraping Object 257 than a Super Conqueror.

    You underestimate how large these others tanks actually are.

    While the ELC Even is positively tiny by tank-standards, it still is literally man-sized. The Bulldog T37, for example, is  almost 2 "man-sizes" in height by comparison.

    Unless you are shooting down on it you are better off shooting at the super structure or LFP.

    Monkey reacted to Rexxie in Elimination: Removed Maps   
    Remember these old maps?  While some maps were reworked or rebalanced, these maps were given up on entirely. Which did you truly despise? Which do you dearly miss? Let's find out!
    If you're new to Elimination, the rules are simple - increase the most fun map on the list by 1 and decrease the least fun map on the list by 3. You're allowed to do this once per day, until only a single map remains! Try to explain your choices, even if very briefly. Highlight your increase with GREEN and your decrease with RED if possible. If you cannot use colors, use BOLD for your upvotes and ITALICS for your downvotes. If you've forgotten what these maps are, you can find them on the wiki.
    I do want to mention that some of these maps had multiple iterations and even some current maps have been reworked heavily enough to almost be considered new maps - for simplicity's sake, we will be voting on the last iteration of the map before it was removed, and I will be ignoring heavily-changed current maps. Feel free to mention what you think about previous iterations, though!

    Monkey reacted to Rexxie in Rex & Ziddy's CoC - A Lewd New Years   
    Today I came back to play my first real session of WoT in about a year. The game still has some charm, I'm thinking of sticking around for a while to give the new toys that I've missed a try! My terrible tank fetish has sparked up too; I'm heading towards the 65t. The new CN TD line looks terrible too, but gosh darn am I a sucker for how pretty wedge TDs are.
    This has been the case for a long time, but one thing that really hit me today is how much less necessary a premium account has become. XP Boosters are really good and Wargaming likes to stuff hundreds down my throat, so I've been having a pretty smooth time playing with a standard account. I don't think I'd even think about playing this game again if the economy was as cutthroat as it was a few years ago.

    The obj430u on the other hands seems to be quite some fun, the armor seems damn nice, gun is also good.

    EU moderator has confirmed that having the T-10 in your garage will get you the 257 as well, so rebuying it is probably a good option

    @De1tacu Every new tank can have its own thread, but perhaps you didnt know that. OP could have been more in depth, but that just means that somebody who gives a damn about a new M4 clone can write about it under this thread.

    Monkey reacted to Fabunil in Rear Turret Soviet Heavy Branch will come to Supertest   

    If I read these values correctly:
    UFP 140mm @ 60° (EFA: 244/264/280 against AP/APCR/HEAT)
    LFP 140mm @ 55° (EFA: 217/232/244 against AP/APCR/HEAT)
    Sidearmor 130mm @ 57° (EFA: 211/226/238 against AP/APCR/HEAT) (Hello T-22 my old friend...)
    UBP: 110mm @ 55° (EFA: 171/182/191 against AP/APCR/HEAT)
    LBP: 100mm @ 45° (EFA: 130/136/141 against AP/APCR/HEAT)
    So mediocre frontal armor (very similar to the IS-4 in fact) meets retarded sidearmor, so you can angle your tank @45° and bounce most tier 10 standard rounds off your side/frontal armor.
    Light tanks can pretty much go and reevaluate their lifedecisions when they see this thing.

    Monkey reacted to Rexxie in FV4005 Stage II   
    The thing is that even though this tank is unarguably the worst T10 in the game by vast margins, most players just want to see 183 players squirm because of how well many times they've had their jimmies rustled by HESH. I'm sure he's aware the tank sucks ass.
    Also IIRC it doesn't aim faster. Aimtime might be better but the bloom is much worse so it actually has to aim for a longer time to get the same accuracy. It's a HORRIBLE version of the pre-speed nerf/turret buff 183.

    Close. You've got the right sub forum. Now navigate to the 2nd page of this sub forum. Locate the tank specific thread. Read or skim that thread. See if you get enough info from that. If not then post a replay where you felt lost...in that thread.

    416 stays, everything seems pretty alright and done except for the 430v2s T10.. Object 777 Variant 2 could make sense, but idk if it's the 777 that's in the client

    So basically they're redoing a bunch of the soviet lines, switching the T-10 to a potentially new line along with a lot of other stuff. I'm not sure what changes will be but would make sense to use the Object 705 as the tier 9 for the Object 705A as well. It does however branch from the IS so who knows. They also kept the 430v2 as a tier 9, so hopefully it stays in its current form. 430 gets downtiered and 430U goes live, having a 430 will let you keep the 430 and you get the 430U. Having a T-10 means starting off of the tier 9 from what could be an entirely different branch as well. 
    This together with the TD changes make for a very big russian patch. So far it seems okay, 430U is OP but compared to the new level T10s are supposed to perform at it's fine I think. There's still some speculation to do about what tanks fill the gaps that these changes will leave, and also what tweaks will be made to them so I guess we'll see. I'm personally very interested in the T-10 right now.

    Monkey reacted to monjardin in Patriot overrated for random battles?   
    Damn, man. I'd swear you start half a dozen new content-free threads a day.
    Have you tried browsing the forum first? It's the 3rd link at the top of this sub-forum.
    What does your paragraph add that isn't already in that other thread? There's no content here at all. You don't even specify which other premiums tanks that you think carry better.
    Please either start posting your questions in the existing threads or use a status update. You're watering down the already dwindling forum at an astonishing rate.
    Also, see this thread where the Patriot came in the top 3 of all tier 8 tanks.

    Vstab, rammer, egld. People seem to dislike it and it's often helpless but i enjoy driving it sometimes and making credits. 2nd line, TD positions. It's a tier 8 T30 minus the fear factor. It'd be great if they gave it a 440 alpha hit!

    Monkey reacted to Rexxie in 110   
    It's so sad to see how far this tank has fallen. Back when I played it (shortly after the line was released), the tank was exceptionally good. Nothing with that much armor still had mobility or anything resembling an accurate gun, the only hitch was that you had to be very mindful of your LFP. Now it's trash, and nothing has even changed about the tank itself. The pen is bad, the armor is somewhere between disappointing and unremarkable, and tanks like the Defender thrash it in every way imaginable.
    It's been this way for a while, but I suppose the release of the 111-5 has gotten people to take note.
