  1. Friends, I'm hoping I can come here for a sanity check. Being stuck at home because of the virus, I'd had a ton of free time and thus prowled the WoT official forums. Naturally I got into some discussions, some heated specifically about anti-arty threads. At first I didn't venture into anti-arty topic at all, more so just calling out the "oh this is a whinning thread" posts and disprove their logic when indeed the thread wasn't whinning at all. Then discussions ensued about why arty is balanced and my attempt to disprove it. This is where I lost my sh!t, not because people had different opinions but rather because a 44%-er wrote this elaborate post to which my response was - in summary "how can you say all these things when you clearly don't understand game mechanics" - several posts later I realized you can't convince this person of anything, he'll just refute til the end of time. I mean this went on for a while. At some point I said you don't ask a high school life guard to diagnose a patient, you as a doctor and then some other guy wrote a novel of a post and after reading it, I felt I had lost brain cells that I was dumber having read it. Really bad players really feel that they can chime in and spew elongated posts which say much but mean nothing on the topic. That got to me. So I ask you all, do you feel the same way? If no, is it me? I noticed two things, one I don't see many purples post there and two the ones I see post generally seem to stay away from those kind of topics. I've decided to not go back to the WoT forums, it gave me anxiety.
  2. Gents, I'm looking for some info/tips/tricks for some tanks I have collecting dust in my garage. The biggest question is primarily, are they relevant? 1. T32 2. Type 62 3. Tiger I 4. Borsig Thanks !

    AMX 50 120

    I must be the luckiest shit out there in this tank. 45WR in it and ironically I am #8 on the hall of fame. Or was... point is ... I can't win no matter what I do and it frustrates the shit out of me. I want to get to the 50B but I can't master this damn tank. I can't win.
  4. The issue with VIII is the fact that so much more information is needed to really make the movie make sense... In VII much more information was needed about Fin, unfortunately the movies didn't provide it all, books and comics did but like VIII if you didn't know of the comics/books/games you're missing some KEY things. For example, the Dreadnought, gravity bombs, why? Well apparently Battlefront II DLC campaigns answers that "somewhat". In the game you steal plans on the Dreadnought and how to kill it. Not explained in the movie. Rey's parents... disappointment yet it doesn't make sense. I re-watched VII before and after VIII and there are so many cues that Rey and Ben are related. But if that's the case did Han and Lea know? Doubt it, their love for Ben was so apparent that there is no way they would ignore the fact they have a daughter, unless they didn't know? Mystery... hopefully Ben lied to her and she isn't the child of useless people. Lastly, the movie is slightly different than the books in the regard. Luke's X-Wing in the water. Relevant, absolutely, given enough information? Nope.... I had to research this one, found an exert from either an article or a book about why the X-Wing is in the water, apparently it is destroyed, Luke destroyed it and used parts to facilitate his living. Very unnoticeable but most of his equipment and the hut doors are from the X-Wing. The movie portrayed this as a symbol of "he can't leave look his X-Wing is under water!" But us SW die-hard fans know Luke can easily pull it out of the water (Hello Empire Strikes Back!). Snoke... ah this one was interesting. We know nothing.... I tried to research ANYTHING and found an interview with a writer, who said if you look at the Emperor specifically, in IV, V, VI we knew nothing of him until I, II, III so they are following this sort of plot. His death though was.... very disappointing however theorists believe he is Darth Plagueis with his special ability to reincarnate. Who knows. The writers just confirmed that it was necessary for him to die to Ben/Kylo can ascend into full power. Phasma's death was also a "WTH" moment, unfortunately I don't know much other than the comics/book portray her as a big deal in the SW cannon, for her to die so quickly feels wrong. But we don't actually see her die,maybe she'll be back? Luke's death... Probably the most controversial scene. We were given a hint that projecting himself across worlds is very intense and can kill a man (beginning of VIII), but he died so abruptly afterwards... and apparently... what he say caused him to die (or be at peace). But what did he see? Well we see two suns, homage to Tatoonie's "sunsets". But I had a friend say he saw a spec in the larger sun, and after we re watched the movie, I can confirm. Something is there in the distance...what is it ? And why did it cause Luke to be at peace (die).
  5. I stopped playing my FCM because of the MM. One day prior to this decision I record all the games I had with respect to the tiers I saw. Tier 9 was the top of the list by almost two-thirds. Then came all tier 8 games. Granted a tier 9 match isn't the end of the world BUT it is difficult to carry teams in tier 9 games when everything pens you. So I stopped, just wasn't fun in that tank. I agree with @Fabunil. It wasn't a great tank but at least when I had bought it, in the right hands you'd be very effective, but it needs a team...one which can hold a flank long enough. Can't tell you how many times today within 4mins I realize half my team is gone... Today it isn't as effective, it isn't as flexible, it isn't as great. I hope one day they do something with it.
  6. Same here, I still laughed hard.
  7. Are you absolutely sure? I starred at them side by side and it looks closer to the VKM, but maybe I am mistaken. Also the model looks slightly smaller than the Panther. But I could be wrong.
  8. Hi All, I need some help understanding a few things. Looking at all the 3 tanks mentioned in the title, why does the Pudel look more like a VK3002 than it does a Panther. The description says the Pudel was a captured Panther, therefore shouldn't it be near identical to the stock model of the Panther? The VK002M was the prototype so I am assuming it never saw combat. Further it doesn't seem to stand at the same height as the Panther anyway according to tank inspector (visually speaking). So I'm just confused. Maybe I am missing some historical importance? My last question is where could I find a very beginning friendly guide on how to make the Panther fully upgraded (or even the VK3002M) visually look like the stock Panther for historical accuracy? I have a thing for the WWII Panther. Thanks !
  9. You know, I asked myself if they would implement some separation... and I said "yes they would" - my bad for assuming WG can common sense.
  10. The IS Berlin? The guns accuracy made me start drinking.
  11. My first and old female crew was originally on the 7/1, soon as I got the AX, switched them over. Mind you this was recently...
  12. I sold the 7/1 before knowing of this update. Read the update, still glad I sold it.
