  1. Apparently can't delete status updates, so let's just say i suck at reading posts.

  2. How do you guys make so many credits/hour? I keep seeing things like "I made just over/under/around a million credits playing for an hour" and I'm not seeing how.. Granted you're probably a much better player than I am, but running a 50% Credit bonus, my absolute best games make around 150K, And those are good enough that I don't see anyone consistently doing it 6+ times in an hour.(or maybe that's your average game and I suck that bad)  Am I that delusional about my skill level? Are there better than 50% credit boosts ? Or am I missing something?

      Every so often people are asked to send in pingplotters when the servers are shitting the bed. Then someone from WGNA manually credits reserves.

  3. So I've never played this at all, but thinking of giving ii a try- mouse and keyboard OK or should I dig out my old whatever it was flight joystick ? Any suggestions on lines that are good for beginners or that should be avoided? Mindless fun sounds great, but I don't want to start going up a line then discover the high tiers are useless.

    Yep, traded mine in towards a Lowe. (So it was a very expensive Lowe) Watched a few more replays, style seems to be do nothing, wait to see where the red team is going, go there and shoot them run away or redeploy depending on how it goes. Style 2 seems to be camp in one spot, completely ignore supporting your team, wait until the red team is over running your team, farm what damage you can while telling them they suck,. I think there has to be more "look at the damage i did but my stupid team lost the match" replays for this tank (or line actually) than any other one in the game. In either case, line is not for me, just irritated I was stupid enough to put 3 female crew into the line. Ah well, maybe that T6 premium is fun.
  5. Had decided not to run this line...and the WGNA decided it was going to be the 3rd On Track in November. Given that it seems just about everyone else on the server has or will be doing it, might as well Lemming along. Tried playing the Tortoise as an assault vehicle on test..and it didn't go so well. (had thought it would be sort of like the Jagdtiger, but it's not) Do they work Ok as Snipers? (They would seem to, decent shell velocity, fantastic gun arcs.. but that camo...)
  6. There's no way they're going to give a TD, let alone a Russian TD, that kinda of DPM and accuracy. It's not going to happen. The SU-122-54 as listed is far worse (except for pen) than the WZ120FT So either this is fake, they're placeholder values, or the line is going to have so much armor the only way to damage them is by using arty.
  7. Any chance you have any replay packs? Been trying to figure out the STRV, (so similar) but not sure how to play the on a variety of maps, and the only ones I found uploaded were games where the red team was kind enough to drive slowly forward and let the poster rack up the damage. So I'm curious as to the playstyle of maintaining that kind of DPG over multiple maps.

    I picked this up without trying the TD line , and..might have made a mistake. I honestly feel I've had some of the absolute worst teams I've ever seen in about 15/20 games on this, but I'm finding it almost impossible to really influence the outcome of a game. I don't have full camo crew yet, so seem to get spotted easier than I thought I would, don't have the speed to relocate (or rather, it seems to take forever to get up to speed) if the red team doesn't sit in front of me, and once I fire off a shot or two players seem to avoid the area. (Which is weird, because in my WZ 120TD they seem to take the 440 hit and keep coming) So far I'm really regretting this, otoh, I can really see how learning to play to this things strengths is going to teach me a lot about maps and positioning that I don't know or pay attention to.
  9. Stupid WG, the 215B is supposed to remain valued at 6.1 Million credits so I can get a new T10 and get 3 million credits. This might be the most outrageous thing you've ever done.

      I think the sale price is 10,000 credits.  I agree, complete BS.  Somewhere is the patch notes they talked about giving it a value of 5 Gold.

    2. RealBattousai

      RealBattousai

      yup in notes it said 5 gold, either way not selling it.

      Was the Foch 155 the same way?  Thats a pretty shit thing to do if so.  

  10. Yeah I was trying for MT 15.4, but after 100 games or so I've never seen enough TDs. (If I'm in a heavy or scout, TD's all over the place of course lol) Maybe I'll just see how difficult it is to do 5K with 155M HE spam.
  11. How the fuck do you do internal hits? Trying to unlock TD 15.4, the mission I'm missing is 2.4 do 5K damage and injure/destroy 3 crew/modules. I'm driving arund in a T100E4 (wiht a gun that with food,vents.BIA and a Gld still seems like the most inaccurate gun in the entire American line, including the 152 on the T49) and I have at least a dozen 5K games- and haven't managed to get more than 2. Just had back to back 5K games with zero crew injuries/module damage between them. Totally get that I'm having shit RNG, But is there a trick to this? I keep stupidly assuming putting multiple 155mm shots through turrets will break something, but apparently not.
  12. Is the Su-122-54 all that bad? It looks like a T9 version of the prem Chinese TD, (Except for that stupid 4 gun depression), and I really like the Wz-1201GFT, even in T10 games it's not terrible, and the Su looks like an upgraded version.
  13. So another question- when you play this solo (I have no mic at the moment, and no friends currently playing so I don't platoon) how do you decide on targets? I've managed to start stringing together more 2kish damage games than not, but I'm always trying to guess- of you have the choice between A) The side of a undamaged T28 Proto who's not even looking at you, or B) An E75 with 39HPs, which do you shoot? In my mediums I always remove guns from play (unless the game is over and all I can do is farm), but with these 20 second reload guns, I'm not sure. As I said, getting the damage up, but my WR is still bad in this, and I completely admit I'm not influencing games like I do in a med or heavy.
  14. Just came here to ask after watching Jingles video if there actually seemed to be more arty cover at some of the common brawling areas, and it seems there is. So that's a step in the right direction.
  15. Thinking of picking this up next time it goes on sale, (been a while I think, so hopefully November), in a Meta populated by Patriots/Obj 252's/Chrysler K's/Wz 111-1FTs/ and all the other newer premiums, is it still worth it for a slightly above average skilled player? Am looking forward to the new French HT line, so want to get a crew trainer, but I'm iffy (based solely on stats) of how this looks now.
  16. They had a third, plus my teal would have clashed with the dark purple.
  17. So decided to buy this tank back, first game run into Crab and Dual's platoon of T49 haxxors, (also realized when I retrained my commander, forgot to buy 6th..oops) defend mission on Siegfried. Half the team decides the best way to defend the base is to advance into South Field and camp. We lose, Dual kills me Second game back get shot by a friendly T49, who manages to set me on fire, and I die. I hate this tank.
  18. NA is having camo sale Oct 27-30, not sure if it'll be 50% or just 25% though..
  19. Looks interesting, but has like 1.5 second longer reload than the Wz for 50 less alpha, and it's traverse is far worse. Far better sniper, much worse at anything other than sniping.
  20. IS buying accounts actually a thing? The number of purple/blue/teal players with 55%+ Win Rates and yet apparently don't have a clue how to play their tank is ...odd. Plus none of them seem to have clans. Purple Conqueror driving into mid field Malinovka at the start of a game is a thing. 

    or it could just be a bunch of elite types have decided to fuck over any team I'm on.

      I know several purple accounts that have been sold recently, especially since the rumours of no more t10 CW reward tanks... a 907 is its pixels in gold right now.

      Also another reason XVM is ebola... better just play without it.

      It must be. The number of statistically blue players I see hugging the redline and only doing one or two shots worth of damage, if any, can't be explained any other way. 

      Tbh that is how you blue xd. Try to pad but be useless anyways. *totally not representative of all blues*

      @Fulcrous I'm really referring to mid to high 50s overall WR. No way base camping can achieve that. Or is there!? Maybe I'm blueing it wrong. Must... camp... more...

  21. This tank is awesome. I have no idea why I put off grinding this line for so long. (well the T28proto pre speed buff) I loved the Proto (after the buff, have no idea how you guys managed to play it at 20KPH) and was kinda sad to sell it to fund this, but this thing is Epic, Good turret (although it seems to get penned from the front by a lot more players than I think should pen it), 10 degrees of depression, fairly mobile, and the alpha to ruin anyone's day. Love it.
  22. Again, really think it depends on teh player, while I wouldn't want to meet Crab/Dual or any of you guys in my 54LtWt, the number of T49's using the 152 who have no idea how to aim/use it is kinda funny. I actually turned save replays on after a game in which a platoon of 2 T49 derps both rushed my LtWt, and managed to hit each other , one of those moments that make your night. No the 90mm isn't going to turn a terrible player into a good one, but when fighting anything faster than a Maus, it does have a little better chance of them hitting someone with it.
  23. Best thing to do is watch youtube videos of whatever tank you're interested in, watch multiple vids. Often you'll see someone post a vid like "look at what the Rev can do, an easy 5K damage per game!" And watching the replay you'll notice he gets a lucky ammo rack, and the entire red team is pretty much made up of bots who don't know how to pen a Rev, But watch a few, and you'll get a sense of how the tank plays, Personally I vastly prefer the Lorraine (fast flanker) to the Rev, but a lot of people (including players much,much better than I am) feel the Rev is the better tank, it might be in your hands, I can get teh Lorraine to work, couldn't get the Rev. The Super Pershing is decent- but it's a tank that relies on the gimmick of players not knowing where to shoot it, when I started playing I struggled with how to damage them, now I'm usually happy to see anyone on the other team with them, as they're pretty easy to pen if you know where to shoot. (Powercreep has hurt the SP, it used to be a lo harder to pen) TLDR, no one is really going to be able to tell you what to sped your money on, they can make suggestions on what to avoid, but the only one who knows what will suit you is you
  24. Yeah, but the Type 5 with the 14cm is the Type 4's gun, it's just there if you didn't research it on the type 4, the 15cm is the "final" gun, the French line has the 120 as the already researched gun, and the 130 is the "upgrade" I could be wrong (again)of course ( I really thought WG would have released the Chieftain by now) , but I don't see them leaving a gun that bad as the gun you unlock
  25. There's no way they're going to keep that prem pen on the big guns, who's going to grind a HT line with a T10 that essentially can't pen other T10 heavies unless they have a straight side/rear shot. IS7 has trouble (in the hands of an average player, I'm sure elite types are different) with 303 pen, 280 is a joke.
