    @PlanetaryGenocide Oh, I have the improved v-stab already. Currently running the improved v-stab, optics (now improved optics) and rammer. But will switch the rammer for improved vents once I save up enough bonds again.

    I always appreciate anyone willing to put the effort into generating high level content for the wotlabs community.  Even, if I currently don't have the tank yet.

    I had a similar issue (ended up HD cratered) but a good defrag or even just the Wot sound folder, can do wonders.  Turning off the sound works as well because WG have some significant inefficienties built into the sound programming.

    can confirm our lord and saviour is up and doing some stuff in the background. hes also migrating Wotlabs to a new host server which should be better. (and cheaper according to him)
    he said the migration would take a while because its a couple of terabytes lol

    Fuck off eurocommie. We've become a degraded society that doesn't value anything and is increasingly outcasting people who want to live a good life with no sickness. Count in increasing ostracization of certain groups of people in the US. This is what you get. Oh but you know, being able to shoot others in self defense shouldn't be allowable because a person brought a gun into a no gun zone and shot others???
    Might want to consider Europe has goatfucking allahu ackbars that cause 1000%+ crime increase in past decade, but das racist. USA is utter fucking garbage though I can agree with that. btw pls ban me someone, I asked months ago but never got banned xddd.

    8_Hussars got a reaction from Ollie Tabooger in Buy T54LW now to get a free Tier 9?   
    (Primarily this is a partial re-post with some of my own and others notes thrown in...)
    Other than the "free" up-tier (tank/module costs/XP increases) the only tanks you receive for "free" are the back-filled T8s and even then its really only the non-elite HWK 12 and BC 12t... It looks basically revenue neutral other than the garage slots (to be verified) as you receive compensation if you already have them in the garage.
    *T-54 ltwt.
    **If the T-54 ltwt. is researched:*
    The crew will not be retrained from the T-54 ltwt. to the LTTB (including dismissed crew members that are available for recovery)
    If the LTTB is not available in the Garage, add the LTTB with a vehicle slot and a crew trained to 50%.
    If the LTTB is available in the Garage, perform refunding in the amount of 1,205,000 credits._
    (to be verified) If the LTTB is available in the Garage, camo, emblems, insignia will stay_
    *If the T-54 ltwt. is available in the Garage:*
    It will be promoted to Tier 9
    Any unassigned XP will remain at Tier 8
    Camo, emblems, insignia will be refunded (in gold or pro-rated credits)
    The crew is not sent to the Barracks.

    8_Hussars got a reaction from CraBeatOff in Tankrewards are up. Do I get the Skoda T40 or the tier 6 Swede premium? ( I already h   
    I picked both up over Christmas with tourney gold (and while on a deep discount).  The Skoda T-40 plays similar to Tier 8 VTU at T6, and trains crew.  The swede is a nice little tank but doesn't get the swede great gun depression.  The other downside is it trains med crews which doesn't really help for the TD/Heavies that are keepers in the swede lines.  I prefer the Skoda T25 for a T6 autoloader play.  So me being wishy-washy, I suggest grab which ever one peeks your interest, the other will be a reward sooner or later anyway. 
    (no-lifer 68 point getter, so I picked up the T-34-85M)

    8_Hussars got a reaction from Dangalang_time in Today, I played 6 battles without personal reserves activated and I average 2500+ DPG   
    FWIW, I have come to realize I generally lose when I play shitty and win when I don't.  Often, I seem to play shittier with reserves running because of pressing to get games in (before reserve time runs out) or pressing to get XP (to finish daily grinds) or pressing to meet some goal (finish crew or tank grind), or pressing to get something done before IRL takes over.
    Correlation does not equal causation and all that so you may be correct but for the wrong reason.  Its not rigging during reserves; its that we play with a different mindset with reserves activated... and are not as focused on the game but on maximizing our results during the reserve time while not reflecting on all the strategic/tactical options available and not properly reflecting on the mistakes we are making...because we cant "waste" those reserves...

    Unfortunately, we usually only see the patterns we are looking for (confirmation bias) and often cant determine the long term patterns over many sessions/time.  Players "expectations" of random usually don't coincide with what random really means...  The math over 1000 coin flips indicates you have a 37% chance to have a streak of 10 or more in a row which for most would be unexpected and not "random".

    Come on guy's you cant have it both ways... that WG is incompetent with shit mm, balance, mods, maps, etc and everything, but can take the time to rig matches so a select few get "balanced", especially when running reserves...  Its the oft mentioned confirmation bias because you pay more attention to your streaks and are looking for reasons and patterns where randomness reigns.

    8_Hussars got a reaction from Tarski in How much do fire skills reduce fire damage?   
    I have yet to find any better data but it seems that the firefighting skill essentially reduces the damage taken "per tic" and also reduces the amount of "tics" by reducing the damage taken to the minimum threshold faster.

    Thanks.  I just came through the AMX M4 (on the 50 120 now) and would likely recover the tank, start a new crew, and grind some XP.
