  1. Anyone who still plays can please explain me how to play Erlenberg with paper tanks? I hate so fucking much 1.0 version.

    1. kolni


      It really, really depends on tank comps 

      north spawn i like to play 1-2-3 and farm the enemy heavies as they push but you also stand no chance to push into K line so I tend to rotate into middle once the farm stops. Biggest downside is that you have to commit and cant really run if you get swarmed, even when you see it coming it’s hard to get safe on time (you need to either get out of spotting range from the castle or hard cover).. despite that it does work well damage wise, win wise i havent figured the map out better than push mid and cross your fingers.. if you do see you’re gonna lose then A0 is a great damage farm unless your team wins 0line at least.. you can stall for really long regardless of where you’re losing

      south spawn i just wing the middle with sub par results due to lack of a better idea, sorta okay but never felt reliable

      if it wasnt for assault maps not taken into consideration id have this map permabanned over any other map, if i play something that can play minsk well then i ban erlen anyway

  2. wait Carbon played Chieftain? In which account tho??
  3. I wonder what would happen to the economy of WoT, more HP means more xp and creds available... Idk, but if WG keeps the current income ratios this change might be healthy for the game. EDIT: The alpha increase should be lower, around 20-30%, otherwise tier 8-9 will get shit on if they buff its HP up to 30%
  4. This has been the trend for every single fucking 1.0 map, I don't fucking get it, why WG designs maps around TDs.
  5. Old Kharkov was garbage for tanks without armor and somehow better than maps like Studzianki, Erlenberg, Pilsen or Minsk. New version looks promising but... it's WG
  6. Holy fuck, reading your posts feels like somebody it's been digging inside my mind. I kinda get that feeling too, but in way where I can push myself really far over the average as soon as I enjoy or have fun with something. It's been weird, particularly for uni, my career it's kinda small when it comes to the amount of people studying it. And most teachers have a really good impression of me but I haven't been able to keep up with consistent results when it comes to marks. I failed to approve some classes in my first years because I couldn't find the class interesting at all, and of them told me he was completely dissapointed about my results. At the same time another teacher told me to check out for opportunities to study in a foreign country(never did this lol) , because I was the kind of student a world class uni would be interested in. When it comes to games/sports, I've always liked to pushed myself as far as I could when I really enjoyed something, I had this competitive mentality of trying to play against the best even if meant getting shit on a couple of times. Kolni completely has a point here. If you care about the things you can't control, you'll only get frustrated more and more over those things. I've even taken this into IRL stuff, and it seems to work out well for me most of the time. Maybe it's the reason behind why I can't care enough about politics, trends or social movements. Particularly in WoT, I even broke a phone because I got pissed off by arty. As I grew up, I realized I was getting better results when I was focusing on myself and myself only. When I had fun, when I wasn't pissed were the times where I managed to play as well as I was able to. Making mistakes never made mad, because I could get something from those mistakes. Now I just play WoT when I feel I want to, and it feels much much better. Winning games became irrelevant for me too, even though I still get annoyed when I lose a game for not killing one tank because of a low roll or getting set on fire xd. I've been playing some other games too(LoL, HS, OW, HotS), and I've noticed a similar pattern. When I have more fun, I get better personal results because I can think clearly, without the tilting factor. The only thing that makes me sad when it comes to WoT, it's the feeling that if I would have played any other game, like CS:GO or LoL for this amount of years, I'd probably be around the top and maybe in a competetive scene. Obviously I've never put numbers as good as Kolni numbers in WoT, but good enough to be around the top 100-200 players overall in NA (being from Chile xd). Now, what I'm looking into, it's taking this mentally to my important IRL stuff, even if I don't enjoy certaing stuff too much. Right now, I have to memorize a shitton of fossils, all of them with similar characteristics and small differences to identify one from another. I absolutely HATE memorizing things because you have to do it. It's not gonna have any other use than what I'll answer in my upcoming test(at least, not in a short period of time), and I can't help with this feeling of doing what I feel it's a waste of time and effort. It feels kinda shocking to see the psychological implications behind climbing from mid to high level gameplay, and also how one single game has influenced my way of looking at things while I grew up. EDIT: Sorry if I'm driving away from WoT but I feel like high performance in games or sports are strictly related to how flexible your personality and thought process is to the different situations you get put on.
  7. Unless you filter the WR only taking into account skilled players only, it's completely pointless. Do you really want stats about players with low understandings of the game? Probably 268V4 still has the highest tier 10 WR, because it's hard to deal with even though it's not the top pick for good players. SC and 430U are powerful in every single scenario and sadly, HE has been the only thing holding them back. 277 gun is aids, 260 can't sidescrap vs +270mm pen, 5A same thing, IS-7 is alright but low pen APCR makes things hard vs types, 430Us and SCs. If you manage to set up 1v1 situations, SC should win most of the time, if you can't, you can still play a support role because the gun allows it. And we are not even talking about fighting lower tiers, you sit hulldown, and unless arty hits you, you are completely inmune to tier 8 and a lot of tier 9. SC should definetely be nerfed. A tank with its characteristics should never get that DPM and gun handling.
  8. HE shits on you regardless of what you play, but if you check what tanks were the most played last ranked season S. Conquer and 430U were by far the most powerful/played, maybe contested by 907?. When it comes to heavies, CW was dominated by SC and 277 until Chieftain(which should probably be nerfed a bit) was released. SC has enough DPM to trade 2 for 1 in most cases, you are not meant to contest other hulldown tanks, but having APCR as prem allows you to track & damage pretty easily, locking down tanks or trading favorably without much retaliation besides once again HE garbage. Also unlike the other hulldown tanks, SC has the best gun handling by far, even sniping is still good and you have can fight hulldown at +150m you are gonna win most of the time, because roof is not easy to hit and your gun is more accurate with a higher RoF. Think of 215B, back then we had a tank that was already strong but lacked armor, all it's playstyle was around its gun. The replacement is the exact same but with much better armor, no drawbacks at all. As one last thing, post 1.0 maps are quite cancer for heavys since WG thought they needed to either give a camping spot or change close quarter combat areas to every single reworked map i.e. Erlenberg, Pilsen, Fjords, Fisherman Bay, Siegfried Line. Being aggressive with a heavy is worse than has ever been because of arty, excessive amount of TDs and HE garbage.
  9. I was about to ask this, can you change it whenever you want?
  10. I'm blocking fucking erlenberg, it's pure cancer unless you play arty or a superheavy. I really don't understand why WG changed both flanks making them pure fucking aids.
  11. that broken shit was actually fun to play, unlike the current game.
  12. play xin, reksai or jgs with good dueling potential. Urgot runs oom a lot during early game.
  13. I managed to play EBR rental. The tank is alright, what makes it bad right now are the fucking maps. I got Fjords, Paris and Mountain Pass 3 games straight and stopped playing it. Got a 7k combined game in Prok tho. My problem once again, is WG being unable to design mechanics that are good for the game. If you wanted to keep these tanks like active scouts, you could have gave them high view range while going +40kph and decrease it being below 40. Who cares if it's not a realistic thing. The shitty ass view range fucks up the wheeled vehicle because you get outspotted by lights and some TDs unless you can take an advantageous position during the first min and a half, which is possible in 1/6 maps I'd say. Man I REALLY wish I could play 2016 WoT with old maps and climbs.
  14. I seriously don't get the issue with boosts. The moments I remember the most in WoT esports are when Applewow got stuck on Cliff and when one russian guy countered a boost vs CanadianImpact in Steppes. It really gave to me more variety to all the maps. I really miss 2014-2016 WoT
