  1. Frontlines progress does seem much faster this time around.

      @Balthazars, yeah, but the equivalent with 30 levels would be to get to rank 7, whereas you just said before you got to rank 4 in the last FL, so that goes to show how much faster it is right?

      LOL, are there fewer levels this time around? Shows how much attention I've been paying...yeah, that makes sense.

      Still feels like a grind...

      I managed to do it in basically 2 nights after work. Only played one game yesterday to get to level 15, then did the 3 daily missions to get the 75 bonds (they feel like a grind due to the RNG of getting 2k blocking).

  2. I've no idea how it will play in the new version, but I'm loving the scenery. 

  3. So many premium Russian heavies added to the game but none of them in the style of the Obj 705. Where is my Soviet Chrysler?

      Object 705 is fake rear mount it doesn't get a  big maus energy pass, it's literally 5cm short of centre mounted.

      I grinded OG style no boosters for a month to get the 430 II (with the benefit of not needing to research t-54 top gun) in all it's retarded armor glory, only to take a break and be greeted by a turd when I came back.

  5. 15% off the credit price of tier X tanks on the NA server for the Valentine's Day weekend. I am pleased.

      Yeah, I sat on my savings for a bit and got lucky. I have 100 million credits' worth of tier X tanks to buy (but fewer than 100 million credits)...

      We haven't had one of those in ages.

      Balthazars

      Yeah, a big surprise. I've gone from nearly 40 million credits to just over 7 million, but bought all the unlocked tier 10s that I've accumulated since then - AMX50B, 60TP, Patton, TVP50/51, T62A, Super Conq, so quite happy.

      It looks like HE is no longer going to damage internal modules. I can think of some times I wished that had been true. 

      Type 5 still has HE and premium HE, and we're back to the only difference being damage since HE no longer has pen values. 

      IS-4 has 3100 hitpoints, as opposed to 2950 on the IS-7 and 3550 on the Maus.

      Interesting. There will be two categories of statistics displayed in the UI: historical totals and recent performance. The recent performance will reset every few months. For people who want a way of looking at up to date stats, we may be getting better tools.

      TOG has 2k hitpoints.

      I believe the global rebalance is so called because tanks are going to become a lot more top-heavy once stacking turrets are unlocked.

  8. Looks like NA gets advance warning about Black Market deals after all. From Discord: 
    "Times have been changed to 17:55 CT - Rotating on a 12-hour schedule."
    From Twitter: "Black Market Update: The start time for Black Market in the NA region has been moved to 3:55pm PT/ 5:55pm CT/ 6:55pm ET, NA players will not be losing out on any of the deals due to the push in time."

    1. Wanderjar

      Wanderjar

      yeah they posted that on the forums about noon, 2 hours after the start time... thank god for twitter?

      most of the blogs picked it up by 1 pm

  9. Overlord, except it's encounter with the cap at E7/F7, and your entire team goes beach. 

  10. A cautionary tale about Chai sniping: Radley-Walters's medal and 4900 damage yielded 2nd class.

      no self spotting means you share 50% of the exp with the spotter.

      What kind of tanks you shoot kinda matter too. 

       

      Also tier. 

  11. Overmatching Obj 703 II (122) roofs with 105mm guns is pretty fun. Great target for the Mutant.

      I was overmatching the rear panel of the roof, the one with the hatches in it. If I hit anywhere on that surface my shell went in every time. 

    3. Strigonx

      Strigonx

      center of the gun mantlet is 220mm flat too

    4. hall0

      hall0

      Only the back part is 30mm. Rest of the roof is 50mm

  12. "Next year, we plan to release at least two new branches of different nations. One of them, most likely, will be a branch of heavy Italian tanks....there is no doubt that the new Italian heavy tanks will have familiar firing mechanics and will continue the tradition of the menacing medium tanks of this nation."

    This could be fun. 

    1. sohojacques

      sohojacques

      Yeah, it could. Please don’t fuck it up WG.

  13. Heading into the holiday event, I have 7 tier 10s and 6 tier 9s unlocked but unbought. Looking forward to shrinking that list more easily with the boosted credit earnings. 

    1. echo9835

      echo9835

      To bad they got rid of the discounts. :/

    2. Tarski

      Tarski

      Yeah, there are some good changes this year and some bad ones. I'll miss the discounts and I'll miss having only 1 decoration set to complete for a full +credit bonus. And tying the vehicle slot bonuses to the class of the vehicle is annoying and seems like an idea that got rushed out the door before they could set up a better mechanic. 

  14. Patch 1.7 looks pretty light on content. Now would be a great time for WG to finally buff the WZ-120.

      While I'm writing my wishlist, I'm still waiting on the 2019 rebalance of the E-100 and IS-4

      1.7 was supposed to also introduce the double barreled tanks, but WG couldn't get them ready in time so they were delayed 

    4. hazzgar

      hazzgar

      @Deus__Ex__Machina yeah I already have 55k exp on Kv3 for that reason and I will have to wait for ages because they had to focus on lootbox prems.

  15. Just got my 11th ever Radley-Walters from a successful 1v3 carry. I rarely pull that off and it was satisfying. 

  16. Frontlines messes up communications. I have chat turned off completely, but this setting apparently does not affect Frontlines, so I get to hear all about my racial heritage and cancer prognosis. And in the post-game panel, right-clicking player names does nothing.

      This whole patch seems to have messed up chat features. Someone was able to message me for the first time in years even though I've turned off messages from strangers. 

    3. BedakCoa

      BedakCoa

      Same thing as option to see tank that killed you... I play without that option for like 3years I guess, but in Boringlines its enabled by default.:rabble:

    4. Tarski

      Tarski

      @BedakCoa Oh yeah, I noticed that happening to. Speaking of which, since at least as far back as patch 1.3 I also have issues with the death camera in random battles. The camera doesn't jump to the tank that killed me, but it does rotate when I die, which is annoying if I die to an unspotted tank and want to read the incoming hit direction marker. 

  17. 9th NA scavenger hunt code: KMAPJME7

  18. Wow, the patch 1.4 frame rate improvements are real. 

    1. sohojacques

      sohojacques

      Not on my aging rig. One step closer to not being able to play at all, which wouldn’t be a bad thing...

      And I’m not complaining. I don’t expect WG to optimise the game for 6 year old shit rigs.

      do i have to assign my christmas girls till then?

    2. Tarski

      Tarski

      @Action I think the correct answer is "no," but I'm not completely certain. 

  19. The SU-101 gets the same hit point pool as the SU-130PM and a gun with less alpha, DPM, accuracy, and gun depression. In exchange it gets...some armor that sometimes works? Can't wait for Frontline.

      Compare it to the Chinese 122-44 and you're realise how absurd it is

      I meant 120 vs 101. There's almost no reason to take the 101 except bloom (which gets cancelled out by shitty accuracy anyway) and the fact it leads up to an OP line.

      IMO 130 PM is worse for the game than either tank in the sense that while it farms a lot and wins some, it causes cancer gameplay on par with what the Swedish wedges do, except it's got way  more alpha so you end up with games where you do everything right early to mid game and just deleted in 2 seconds when the field clears out.

  20. Opinions wanted. I have a Defender to trade in (already have the 252U). Which of the new tanks I could get do you enjoy the most? Scorpion, T-54 mod. 1, STG, FV4202, AMX Cda 105, AMX M4 49, 112, 59-Patton.

      Trade-ins are back? Is it region-specific? I was looking for this on the SEA server news portal

      It was back for a few days on NA before they announced it on the portal. I realized it was back in the game client because of the  icon that appears next to the purchase button for most but not all tech tree premiums. 

  21. Brought out the 5A for the first time. 3 losses to start out. 4th game: 6 allies afk.

      6 afk... should be a badge for that.

      Had similar luck with 1114. Played as agressively as my t-10. Had 2600 dpg. 50% wr for first 30-40 battles

  23. Ever wonder how badly WGNA is doing?

    Sadly there will not be a formal January Preview on our news portal this month. In the mean time I have found some Fun Facts to share with everyone concerning some of the things to look forward to in January. 

    http://forum.worldoftanks.com/index.php?/topic/595098-incoming-january-preview/

    Maybe it's time for them to start hiring overseas assistants from developing countries. Or just give more than one person authorization to post to the news portal.

    Not to mention that WGNA keeps repeating On Track events with bizarre frequency, hasn't had consumable or equipment sales since the summer and had no discounts on any credit price over the holidays, copied and pasted one of December's weekend events to another weekend in December when they realized they didn't have anything planned, and has been posting announcements later and later after the start of the events they announce. The guy they have doing the weekly community news videos has on at least one occasion used the video as a platform to complain about his job at WGNA.
