  1. 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

      crapcannon

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

  2. 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

      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

      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.

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

  3. 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.

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

    1. Action

      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

      Also because most Italians don't eat  spaghetti with meatballs

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

    1. Folterknecht

      Folterknecht

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

      I play whatever when in a platoon. 

    3. Darvek

      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.

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

    1. Gr1nch_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

      crapcannon

      lol thanks

  7. 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.

      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

      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..

  8. 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.

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

      Patton for far better gun handling.

    3. tajj7

      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

      crapcannon

      Much appreciated guys. Will do both grinds.

  10. 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.

      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

      crapcannon

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

       

    4. simba90

      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.

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

      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.

  12. 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?

      @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.

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

    3. sohojacques

      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

      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.

  14. Just played 14 solopub games after work in the Lowe, used 2 hour credit booster & the only good thing about it is I made 700,000 credits. The rest, 36% win rate, 1100 WN8, all but 2 games tier X. Gotta love Sundays!

      @DirtyACE7 200m/s faster shell should help but I get it. Patriot has mediocre gun stats for t8. The only really horrible bloom is on tank traverse and that's the least important since rarely you shoot while turning the hull (it's either moving or moving turret). Lowe has similar bloom to e5 but better final acc and real bloom is related to final acc so that still should be better. 

      Still you should not compare anything to the KR since it gets t10 RU med handling levels. It pays for it with everything. Turret is unreliable, pen is low, shell is slow, 

    3. DirtyACE7

      DirtyACE7

      @hazzgar I actually manage to work around the lesser pen and shell speed of the KR. It really makes up (in my opinion of course) for all those deficiencies with the gun handling and decent mobility. And the turret feels fine most of the time too. As I said, I have three marked it. The tank simply works for me. The E5 on the other hand feels like a cross-eyed, retarded bigger brother.

    4. hazzgar

      hazzgar

      I never played the e5 so I speak from stats but I know I love the Lowe which I also 3 marked. It was a breeze and I'm a potato who crossed 61% recent like 6 months ago

  15. Got chat banned for a month. Bunch of bitch snitches. And of course after 4 years of solopubbing I finally joined a clan and now I can't communicate with them.
    FYI: I didn't even curse.

      When a top tier E75 runs and hides at K0 on Steppes what should I do? Gift him gold?

      @Kolni you got chatbanned with it off?!  How the fuck does that happen?

      Ignore the shitty E 75? Seems legit to me... and far less toxic than raging and getting banned. You've no one to blame but yourself.

  16. I think it's time to find a clan that can teach me/platoon. Going solo pub lately has been absolutely terribad.

  17. MM really hates this fucking Lowe. Just lost 6 straight. Twice I got highest damage in tier X games & the only 2 times I was top tier half the team was wiped out in less than 5 minutes. I might have my first rage sell.

  18. You know you really suck at a tank when you get the first MOE at game 99... Getting ACE with this Lowe is gonna take a miracle....

      Always trying. Even though 90% of the games are tier X.

  19. For the E75, the 10.5 or the 12.8 gun? The DPM and accuracy is better with the 10.5 so not sure.

      I hear ya. Only getting 2100 dpg. There were times i could've used that 311 pen. Bounced one too many shots.

  20. Those $40 gift boxes in the store, worth it? I got's me a gift card! 

    1. Bludsuager

      Bludsuager

      If you have disposable income and want gold/prem and some credits with the possibility of some bonuses then yes. But if buying thinking your guaranteed a tier 8 tank etc then no.

       

      Value for money for the prem/gold and credits are well worth the money

    2. crapcannon

      crapcannon

      No thanks. Don't want any more prem tanks. Everything else I'll take.

    3. DirtyACE7

      DirtyACE7

      Right now is the best time to get the best value for gold. If you typically don't spend money on the game and want to, now is the time. It is highly likely that you will not see better value at any other time during the year.

      Seemed fairly self explanatory... shards turn into random decorations. The more parameters you put on (Tier, Set, Decoration type), the more expensive it is. Additionally, Tier is more expensive as you go up in Tier. E.g. (not actual numbers, no access to client)  a random decoration is 100 shards. If you make it a Tier I Random, it's only 10. Tier V Random is 1000. Random Soviet is 200, Tier I Soviet is 20. Random Soviet Present is 400, Tier I is 40.

      Once you've earned a decoration, it's recorded, and only ones that aren't on your tree are available to be broken. So, break everything extra, check the collections to see what you're missing, and start crafting.

    4. crapcannon

      Appreciate the detailed explanation

  22. Solopub life. Lowe, 66 games, 42% WR. There's always that one tank that MM hates and it's this one.

      Not good enough. 1300. I think maybe I should switch vents to optics.

  23. Sundays has to be the worst fucking day ever to play. Crew grinding in the Lowe and all 6 games, all tier X, 6 losses, 390 WN8. Fuck this shit. Done for the day.

  24. OMG the Lowe is on sale! 

  25. Love when some faggot & his shit clan named I_shot_JR[5LINE] tells the team how much they suck & you're a shitter. Meanwhile after 72,000 games they still suck. Love the irony. PS: I_shot_JR, enjoy your ban after the team kill and shit spamming. :)
