  1. So I'm perma chat banned! Don't know why. I had the swear filter on so it's not for cursing. I guess calling someone a 'coward' is harassment now. Bunch of sensitive pussies. That includes WG moderators. WG must've hired SJW's from Twitter. Oh well. Game is fucked anyway. Time to move on.

      The chat ban system is getting really crazy  and everyone is getting banned but pushing people results in bans only if someone sends replay to WG and then it reaches the one WG employee with over 1 brain cell.


      but wg doesn't care really. I know one wg insider and he tells me they decided to milk the players and not really try to make it live longer. 

    3. kolni


      a lot of people get banned for calling players animals, technically not bad language but the severity is apparently bannable


      if you put the time frame of the game where the pushing happens, or record it into a video so you can just embed it in the ticket makes it much more likely to result in bans because it takes much less time to verify, 3/4 times it works for me if the pushing really is intentional

      sometimes the support staff say it's not possible to tell whether it's intentional or not (lag spike at the exact moment etc) but if it's repeated in the same game i have never not gotten the player banned

    4. hazzgar


      @kolni yeah but somehow you need to do your job for support for pushing but chat bans are super easy.

  2. After a 2 year absence, it's hard to play against all these hull down monsters with the 430U. I totally lost my mojo.

    1. Snoregasm2


      Yeah it's off-meta right now. I 3 marked it 6 months or so ago and, whilst it can still do well bacuse of it's stupid armour profile and fuck you HEAT pen, it really struggle against hull down tanks that know what they're doing. Also, nearly every new tank nowaways has good gun dep, and you realise how limiting Russian gun dep is when you drive to you're favourite spots and can't poke. 

    2. lavawing


      if you'd told me 2 years ago that the 430U would be off meta in 2 years' time, I would have politely asked you to take your meds and kindly fuck off

      as it is now, it feels like a frustrating version of the E50M with a touch more bully potential. still better than the 121 - but again - what isn't?

  3. Finally unlocked the Standard B. Would I do it injustice if I equip it the same way as the Pantera? Vert/Optics/Turbo? I love the speed of the Pantera & the ability to flex on the fly. What goes with this tank and the new meta?

      I see what you mean. Dispersion goes from .33 to .37. So much for higher tiers getting better.

      Edit: on tank.gg when I use Chrome for dispersion values for the Standard B one .35, when I use Firefox it's .37?


    3. simba90


      Check to see whether using Base values or Effective Values is flagged in the options parts.

      Effective means the crew skill will influence the final value.

    4. crapcannon


      Ok thanks. That being said grinding this tank stock is rough facing tier X.

  4. For every 'chat ban' I get I don't support WG. They want to chat ban me every time some muppet reports me for telling scouts who camp behind me to go F themselves, two can play that game. For every chat ban WG gives me in days, I won't support WG in any monetary support to them (buying tanks, gold, premium, etc) in months. So now that I'm chat banned for 4 days, no monetary support will be given to WG in 4 months. Fuck em. Nothings changed after a two year hiatus. WG supports the shitlords.

      And for this reason, because the majority of our player base is totally toddlers and definitely not boomers, we must chat ban you.

    3. crapcannon

    4. PlanetaryGenocide


      just turn chat off, having it on brings you absolutely zero utility

      can't get chat banned if there's no chat logs to report


      or you could like, try not living up to your name and post more constructive things in chat occasionally


      but i personally vote for turning chat off cause i understand how hard it is sometimes to just not call someone a retard

  5. I just lost 6 in a row playing the Skorpion which brings me to a ~39% win rate. This tank is cursed.

    1. sohojacques


      I got it as a free rental in March last year. Played two games in it. Penned two shots in each game despite constantly firing. It was the fuck you from RNG I needed to take a break from the game. Haven’t played since.

    2. crapcannon


      After a 2 year hiatus I bought this tank for only 1000 gold and got back into WoT. After 80+ games with this tank I lost 22 WN8 points! I'm thinking of jumping back into my E75 for about 50 games and murdering the shit out of everyone just to get my points back.

  6. 40% win rate in the Skorp lol. Just out of curiosity, does the German TD line have better mobility & turret rotation?

    1. Show previous comments  3 more
    2. crapcannon


      Your opinion on equipping it? rammer, binocs, gld?

    3. SchnitzelTruck


      Havnt played it since before equipment rework, but I'd probably put rammer, IRM, and whatever else you like

    4. dustygator


      German TD line plays more like the SU-130PM than the Skorpion: disappointing mobility but great camo makes them a support tank, albeit one that clean up better end-game than most casemates.

      Skorp has very bad bloom values (despite good final accuracy/aim-time), no armor and a tall profile. Playing aggressively in early-game gets punished when anyone can auto-aim snapshot you on the move (with HE even) and you liable to dig up worms with your return fire.

      I suspect most would run IRM + Rammer + Optics/Turbo/Vents. Haven't had a chance to test out the third slot myself, been waiting for an equipment sale.

  7. Gave my Mutz and Progetto 46 turbos. Expensive mods but man can I harass the crap out of tanks so much better now! Wonder of 105 Octane stacks...

    1. Assassin7


      It should stack, since food stacks with vents etc

  8. I'm guessing after 2 years the IS4 is an obsolete brawling tank? Can't even side scrape anymore against some of these tier X heavies. And forget that quad track tank thing . What in the actual fuck is that?!

      Got Obj 260 with my IS-4 sealing the deal with a 20k combined HT-15 game yesterday, 11k damage blocked.

    3. crapcannon


      Got the replay for that one? I need all the help I can get. Thanks


    4. CandyVanMan


      Sorry, I don't currently have replays enabled :retard:

  9. 3 weeks back after a 2 year hiatus and I feel like Stevie Wonder looking for the bathroom in a corn maze. I have no idea where I'm going with these new maps and arty players are like "ooh look a blue IS4 out in the open! Let's shit on it!" I'm getting killed out there.

      Annominyser has drastically reduced the arty focus I get. Is great.




    3. crapcannon


      Awesome! Much appreciated!

    4. hazzgar


      @Assassin7 same here. Also much fewer bat chats going yolo just to kill that evil purpel 

  10. Was thinking of experimenting with grousers on the LTG. Might come in handy on certain maps where I could get in an early scouting spot real fast. Love this tank but I would like to get more mobility out of it.

    1. Jesse_the_Scout


      I put TC, optics, LNES on it, seems to work. Camo is ELC levels.

    2. crapcannon


      Thanks. Yeah it's amazing how close you can get without getting spotted.

  11. Trying WoT enCore on my Nitro 5 Ryzen 2500u laptop and the screen goes blank. Music is playing in the background though. Tried low & medium settings. Even updated it. No luck.

    1. Deus__Ex__Machina


      working as intended 

    2. crapcannon


      Makes no sense. I ran it 7 times and I got to see it on the screen once! And when it played that once it was 1000 points lower.

  12. Haven't played in a year. Other than being able to eliminate your most hated map, did anything improve? Or does this game still seem to hate good solopub players?

  13. Can you return or exchange Gamestop WoT gift card? My wife got me one for fathers day but I don't play it anymore. Was wondering if I could exchange it for a Steam card for my son.

      How much is on it/value of the card?

    4. crapcannon


      Not much. $25. Maybe I'll just hold on to it till my boys go back to college & HS.

  14. Tempted to buy the Progetto (as a birthday present) since it's on sale for 40% off with other goodies. But it's like a Mutz but with paper armour & a better gun. Yay or nay? 

    1. TheMarine0341


      Take with a grain of salt, only 3 battles played. IMO its the most flexible of all tier 8 MTs, rivaling really only the Lorrain 40t

    2. Archaic_One


      I don't have one but I keep seeing them at the top of the damage results even when not top tier.  Looks like a winner.

    3. crapcannon


      Bought it yesterday before I lost the sale. Have yet to play it. 

  15. When you win your first 2 games of the day, just walk away from the computer. Walk away. PS: fuck arty. It was the only way those fuckers could take me out.

  16. Spaghetti with meat sauce for the Progresso tank!! LOOOL Sorry. I just found that to be funny as fuck.

    1. Action


      exactly my thought. A little bit too cliché :D but pizza would have been a little too unrealistic for the prosecco mario tank :S

    2. nabucodonsor


      Also because most Italians don't eat  spaghetti with meatballs

  17. When platooning, is it better to all stay the same tank type? Or do you mix it up?

    1. Folterknecht


      Sure - tripple arti, scout or TD platoon (especially without turret) is they way to glory.






      For the enemy team

    2. Assassin7


      I play whatever when in a platoon. 

    3. Darvek


      If you're looking to platoon to boost your win rate, you should probably drive tanks that can play together. Scouts go with snipers, meds, or arty, but not so good with tanks that need to be in the heavy brawl. Some meds can play with the heavies, some heavies can play with the meds, but Leo 1 and Type 5 is probably not a combo that can play in the same part of the map. If you're platooning to just have some fun games with friends, then just don't pick particularly stupid combinations like Folterknecht said.

  18. Where can I find the updated WN8 values for the 430/430U? Thanks.

    1. Gr1nch_1


      I can tell you. Do alot of dmg for purple and less for other colors.

      In other news looking at colors to evaluate your per tank performance is meaningless.

    2. crapcannon
  19. Only a few credits away from the Object 430. Vert/Vents/rammer? At 0.39 dispersion I don't see any reason to go optics.

    3. crapcannon


      lol got it.

      Also, I just realized that Situational Awareness skill that my loader has is greyed out in my T-44/430 but if I put him my Rudy it is not. Bummer cause now I have to train the commander extra hard for recon/SA.

    4. kreigermann


      I've noticed that about a few of the premiums.. the skills aren't always 100% the same, so if you choose a skill while in that prem there's a slight chance it won't match up with the tank they actually belong in.

      You just have to put them in the vehicle you want them in, and reset the skills. I would rather have the skill active in my tier 10 but not in the tier 6 trainer than the other way around..

  20. Best tank to play IMO while learning these new maps, Lowe. Noticing most of these maps favor tanks with good gun depression. Might as well play a tank that shits credits while learning.

  21. Thoughts: Cent 7/1 or M46 Patton? Low DPM vs 0.37 accuracy

    1. Show previous comments  3 more
    2. Haswell


      Patton for far better gun handling.

    3. tajj7


      Patton, if the Cent 7/1 had a proper gold round it might edge it in the current meta, but both are praying to RNG when a Type 4 or 5 rumbles in., so you might as well have the one with better gun handling and DPM. 

    4. crapcannon


      Much appreciated guys. Will do both grinds.

  22. What tank do you use for ranked battles? Haven't done it yet but was thinking of using my IS-4 since it can take a beating. Was curious what you guys use.

    1. Show previous comments  10 more
    2. simba90


      The IS-4 is too slow for the all important mop up damage at the end of games. I found the IS-7 was the way to go for ranks 1 - 8. I managed to only lose a single chevron over ~25ish games. Once you get over rank 8-10ish depending on your MM'g then you need to switch to meta tanks SConq/type 5 as stated above. Personally I worked out that the ~2k bonds that could be earned from getting to rank 8 in ~25ish battles was a far better investment in what is ultimately supposed to be my 'fun' time. But YMMV

    3. crapcannon


      So you can change tanks? You don't have to stick with one particular tank the whole time?


    4. simba90


      Correct, it is just like playing randoms. You select your T10 tank and play a game in that. if you die you can come back to garage and select another T10 tank. rinse. repeat. profit.

  23. Hooray. I'm officially a blue. Hooray. Now those with XVM can play 'wipe crapcannon off the map first....'

    1. Show previous comments  7 more
    2. Jaegaer


      At least on EU it seemed noone really changes the default XVM color scheme so it only matters whether you are old XVM blue or not and then the difference is HUGE, utterly HUGE. Just one more point from green to blue and suddenly you are prime target for 3-4 peeps on the enemy team... Stupid but that how it is.

    3. KruggWulf


      Teal is not blue :^)

    4. crapcannon


      Shh. It's called 'noob' blue...

  24. Very odd thing going on with the T-44. I mounted the 122 on it for shits & giggles today just for the 390 alpha and loaded up a full load of APCR @ 4800 a pop. Left the auto resupply off as well. Unless I'm reading this wrong,  after every game not only am I making credits but my APCR ammo supply isn't decreasing either. I've played 4 games like this. Can anyone confirm?

    1. Show previous comments  3 more
    2. PlanetaryGenocide


      @Haswell but if he has auto-resupply off then it still wouldn't replenish his ammo supply

    3. crapcannon


      ^^This. And there are no extra shells in my inventory either.

    4. crapcannon


      Nope. It's a fail. Thought I found a good glitch.

  25. So this WZ-111 Alpine Tiger, just another fancy painted tank with preferred matchmaking?

      @crapcannon That I can't answer. I have no idea what the credit multiplier is on the thing. Sorry mate.

    3. sohojacques


      They basically gave these away on the SEA server. So I have one. No printing of credits with obligatory HEAT spam.  Covers its running costs though. 

    4. monjardin


       The mobility is actually pretty good. The credit making is good too.

      It’s most comparable to the T-34-3. It gives up some mobility for more HP, more DPM and better gun handling.
