  1. Actually, in proper German, Untermenschen. You think you're being cute? Much of my extended family died because of that exact word and the "casual racism" it employs. Fox advises we focus on the "actual issue." What is the actual issue? A new premium tank with good frontal armor? Sir Foch being treated unfairly by WG? WG being a business and trying to make money? You guys getting your panties in a twist because there's a new premium you can't afford to buy or don't want in a game, or someone was mean to your favorite streamer? Sorry, those aren't real issues. Fuck the Chrysle
  2. Tell that to the Nazis. Your comment was an anti-Semitic slur of the sort that has long been used against Jews, frequently to justify violent action, and that references Jews as an ethnic, and not religious, identity. You weren't suggesting that WG celebrates the Sabbath on Friday night.
  3. It's not closer to a slur....it's all the way there.
  4. He may have been lucky, but he was shooting AP. And I was just going by what Fox said, "177.8mm angled at 40 degrees." I thought that he meant effective, not nominal. I know how armor angling works.
  5. Yeah, and the AP round on the Chrysler is 198. So.....
  6. That's what I'm disagreeing with you about. I don't think graphs showing some tanks performing somewhat better than overall average is the issue you seem to think it is. What is the issue exactly? It's certainly not evidence that these tanks are "insta win." And that they aren't that hard to fight does, I think, mean it's not a problem. What is the problem exactly? Maybe you and I get into very different kinds of battles, but mine aren't decided by which team has more Defenders or superheavies. They are decided by which team's players play better. Tempest in a teacup.
  7. I was just watching replays of the tank, to learn a bit about it, and in one, two Chryslers were facing off. One of them kept penning the cupola of the other with AP. The other kept bouncing off the LFP of the first one. Guess who won that battle. Maybe he was lucky, but it didn't seem that hard to do.
  8. Because people are grinding credits to buy their T9 and T10 tanks, not because they're OP.
  9. And yet the Defender is the only one people keep mentioning. What are the other premiums that are so OP? That they are releasing premiums with lower skill floors, I grant you. But after a little bit, people learn how to counter them and those that buy them don't do much better in them. I think the reason we don't see battles with just one tank is because although some tanks are better than others (no argument from me or anyone about that, I suspect), none of the better ones are so much better. I seriously doubt wanting to play multiple classes or get to T10 would dissuade the vast u
  10. I get that armor increases survivability, and so is less skill sensitive, but it doesn't guarantee survival. I see plenty of people playing well armored tanks badly and dying early in the battle. I'm sure you do too. What I'm finding hard to swallow is the idea that any tanks offer a "win button." I'd sure buy one if I could find one! I'm not seeing the "vastly supersedes".... The graphs above are interesting. That's the kind of data I was asking for. However, what those show is that bads are still pretty bad even in these "OP" premiums. You have to win more than half your games (
  11. Actually, that's what I'm rejecting, as I said, "speculations" about how some tanks increase WR in the absence of actual data (and I mean meaningful data, gathered over a significant range for a sufficient number of players to actually be representative and predictive). If the evidence is that the Defender has a very high win rate on Vbaddict, then that makes the WZ-132 OP as well, which is just silly.
  12. The people complaining about OP tanks seem to be complaining only about armor. I don't hear anyone talking about any other feature that makes them OP, or fussing about tanks having too much pen (we praise tanks with high pen) or about tanks being too mobile (again, we like those). I just hear fussing about armor. And the Defender is the one usually mentioned. I'm sorry, but I don't find it any harder to fight Defenders than I do other heavy tanks (and certainly not as hard as the high tier Japanese heavies). They have weakspots. Aim! They're not some magical tank that wins games just
  13. Well, which is it? They're rapidly destroying the game with tanks that make us flip our tanks and cede the match as soon as we spot them, or they have been doing this for over a year now (which sort of argues against the whole rapid destruction angle)? As for T8 CW, if anyone is still interested in playing it, the IS-3 is better than the Defender in some ways, and worse in others. It's about scratch between them, I think. And when I do play it, I see about even numbers of both. What other T8 premium is clogging up CW? And that's just T8, only one of ten tiers in the game (or on
  14. All of this over a new premium that has armor (in front)?! And I don't get all this "dirty money grabbing" bs. This is a video game, made by a company, who is in business to make money, right? Nobody makes you buy this thing. And if you're fighting it, get around it, or go shoot something else.

    Can't read more about it there, as you can't download the English version without belonging to that forum.
  16. I just think 40 battles is too small a sample size to worry about win rate. With that few battles, you may just be getting a run of uncarryable teams. Shoot, I have strings of 40 battles with terrible win rates playing tanks I do very well in.
  17. Type is a beast! The Leopard is fun at T5. I haven't played the M7 enough to have an opinion. The T-50 is just okay.
  18. What is strange is that they reduced the clip AND the reload on several other reconfigured lights. It's not as if this logic didn't make sense to them at all!
  19. The T71 is pretty strong now. It has my T37 crew in it now. I'm tempted by the T49. I may do a ticket on the Bulldog to finish the grind. Other than the 13 90, it's sort of the only T9-10 lt that interests me at all.
  20. I didn't "suggest" anything of the sort. I didn't "suggest" anything at all. I said things. And I didn't say that. And I state my opinion as opinion. You're the one with the "facts" hang up. I don't recall claiming anyone is wrong about anything. That's your specialty. You do realize you're being kind of a dick (and kind of a stalker), right?
