    Tarski got a reaction from Expendable_Lad in Tried to play a few games with my newb cousin in tier 2 and got fucked by anon M2 Lig   
    I support making stats below tier 5 "not count" in some way. Quarantine them off from other stats, don't report them as part of win rate, don't return them in APIs, don't include them in the default views of the service record.
    Also, fix the way crew works. As a new player I had to grind with terrible crews, and it's a big deal. If they made crew members freely transferable between vehicles below tier 5, that would benefit seal clubbers the most, but they could e.g. include 100% trained crew for free with the purchase of any vehicle below tier 5 (possibly including tier 5). And move sixth sense from the commander to the default mechanics of the game. 
    While I'm dreaming, I'd like to see hints pop up during and after battle for the first couple thousand battles.
    "Commander, you have been inactive at the rear of the battlefield for several minutes. Work with your team to achieve victory! Advance your vehicle to a strategic location where you can join the fight." "Let's debrief, commander. The shells that destroyed your vehicle were all fired in the span of a few seconds. That means that your location was highly dangerous. Click here to learn how to predict danger and find the smartest way to attack the enemy." "That shell hit us in the side, commander. Let's position our vehicle so that our strong frontal armor is pointed in the direction of enemy fire."

    Low tiers could be such a fun/kooky break from mid and high tiers and WG clearly put the time into designing all these tanks. Feel bad for all the low tier designers putting all this modelling and balance work into things just to get 5 minute ways and know in the back of your mind low tiers re actually keeping players from joining the game long term.
    maybe nix all stat-logging sub-tier 5.

    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)...

    When Yasuo came out there was a fun Reddit post that was since deleted. It's about Brand laning against Yasuo mid, if Yasuo were a child's first DnD character. 
    An encounter between him and his friend might go a little something like this (Ignoring rolls for brevity)
    Brand: Is it hot in here or is it just me?
    approaches
    Brand: I throw a searing fireball at you.
    Yasuo: I take no damage.
    Brand: What? Why not?
    Yasuo: I automatically get a shield when I move around enough. It came up when I approached you earlier. I hit you with Steel Tempest for 15+8 critical damage.
    Brand: Ow! I cast Pillar of Flame under your feet!
    Yasuo: Nope. I dodged it with sweeping blade.
    Brand: Well now that your dodge and your shield are on cooldown, I throw another searing fireball at you!
    Yasuo: I dodge with sweeping blade again.
    Brand: How?!
    Yasuo: It only goes on cooldown for the target I dashed to. I dashed to a different target this time.
    Brand: Fine. Well, you can't dodge this. I cast conflagration and set you ablaze!
    Yasuo: Nope. My shield is up again from all that dashing. I take no damage. I cast Steel Tempest again. You take another 15+8 damage from a critical strike.
    Brand: How did you manage to crit twice in a row?
    Yasuo: My passive is double crit chance.
    Brand: I thought your passive was a shield.
    Yasuo: That's my other passive.
    Brand: ... Fine. However, I know you can't dodge this one and you haven't moved enough to bring your shield back up. Eat Pyroclasm!
    Yasuo: I take no damage.
    Brand: WHAT?!
    Yasuo: I used Wind Wall. It blocks all projectiles and never breaks.
    Brand: I back off to twice my current distance while I wait for my mana to regenerate.
    Yasuo: I don't have mana. I cast Steel Tempest again. You take 15+8 damage and are knocked into the air.
    Brand: How the fuck does that work? I was out of range!
    Yasuo: Every third Steel Tempest has double the range and knocks you airborne. I chain the knockup with Last Breath, instantly blinking to you and dealing 20 damage.
    Brand: What the fuck! Alright, I set you ablaze with Conflagration.
    Yasuo: I take no damage. Last Breath instantly restores my shield.
    Brand: This is bullshit.
    Yasuo: I hit you with my basic attack. The bonus armor shred granted by Last Breath lets me hit you for 18 damage. You're dead.
    Ashe: [all] Report Brand for feeding.

    I'd go for the big gun. It's a lot of fun and performed better than I thought it would. Plus you get HESH memes. I loaded HESH less often than I should have.

    Like half the tanks in the game have a serious camera bug in sniper mode right now. The camera is too low, as you noticed, and this means that sometimes it looks like you don't have a shot when you in fact do. Wargaming might fix this someday.

    Tarski got a reaction from sundanceHelix in Unlocked the Sheridan in a zero-damage T49 game. Worth buying? Also unlocked Type61 l   
    I'm also debating the Sheridan. I know it's not a great tank, but it looks like it may be a fun one. 

    The Type 61 is a worse version of other tier 9 mediums. I never gave this a proper try (I think I used free exp on the gun back in the day), but I'm told that abusing its crazy dpm with the 90mm can be reasonably fun. All kitted out you get a 4 second reload, 1.5 second aim time, 0.32 accuracy, and 0.10/0.10/0.06 bloom values (with food but without vents, which at that point would have negligible effect). That's almost 3600 dpm on a gun that's always aimed in. Still a bad platform, but the gimmick might be enjoyable?
