  1. @Kolni just out of curiosity what is your DPG  with the JT? I guess you are one of those people who could pull an avg over the 4k mark. Maybe even over the 4,5k?

      also after the 357 changes tier 9 mm is nowhere near as abuseable right now so you'll probably see a global drop in dpgs there, doubtful anyone'll reach 4k+ on the tanks that aren't op af (standard b, t55, e50, t54 are pmuch the only tier 9s i see as 4k+ dpgable right now)

      having played one e50 game since the changes a few days ago, the mark jumped from 95 to 100 in one game, while the mark was done in march or something

    3. nabucodonsor

      So I guess if you did like it you could pull it off easily. Yeah mediums like th t54 or e50 are probably better (or more fun to play) but personally I don't like the t54 as I don't like spremming as much in tanks so derpy. 

      I asked because of how stupidly strong the gun is compared to anything in the tier, 560 alpha with 350 apcr is absurd with that ROF. 

      But yeah it is a bit slow sometimes, if WG buffed the p/w it would be amazing.

      Anyway thx!

  2. BERSERK TRANSLATED IS OUT WOOOO

      gogo miura, dont give up on us!

  3. For Berserk fanbois there is an interview of Miura on reddit. 

  4. Does anyone play DKS3 pvp? I play it on PC and even if the game is 3 years old it is still very active even at high soul levels (meta 125). Invasions are fun and you usually get some gankers. Arena gameplay is not great but can give you some challeng.

    It is a flawed game (lag, most weapons are too similar) but it is fun.

  5. I'm more and more convicend that the best way to play the E3 is either camp base or if you can, drive to to closest spot where you think enemies will be. 

    Seriously whenever I play on Lakeville for example, camping base is the best option. You get OP hulldown spots and if you need to move just go valley or middle road.

    1. simba90

      simba90

      current meta seems to seriously punish aggression.

    2. Kolni

      Kolni

      e3 gameplay is loading autopen gold and trading on range when the enemy is closing in on you so you get enough damage out until they swarm you

      deffo agree that the tank works much better on a losing team with defensive positioning, it sucks dix when it comes to proactively trying to win games instead of playing a losing game to turn it around later

    3. nabucodonsor

      nabucodonsor

      Yup totally agree. The E3 cant push so the best way to play it is to go hull down maybe even on a a losing flank. It can hold for very long if it has an ally that can cover its sides. It works a bit like the JT but the german td can be a bit more aggressive due to the ludicrous HP and better gun arc.

  6. Is it me or the 140 is trash? A 5a is flat out better

    1. Kolni

      Kolni

      if you think the 5a is better than the 140 you are playing one of the tanks wrong since they are very different and dont play similarly at all, 5a is a poke/trade farmer and the 140 is abusing rof/handling, the only similarity is really that both can hulldown decently and are mobile

      the gun decides how the tank plays first and foremost, and they differ there so they shouldn't be comparable

    2. nabucodonsor

      nabucodonsor

      Maybe because I have Ivstab on my 5a? When I play the 140 i dont feel it has that much better handling and the armour is very underwelming. Even the turret is easy to pen.

      I guess though i might be playing them wrongly

    3. Assassin7

      Assassin7

      Its just you.

       

      I wouldnt compare the 5A in any stretch of the imagination to the 140. 

  7. I gave a chance to the "new" Frontline: base C is almost impossible to cap. WG's touch at its finest

    1. DirtyACE7

      DirtyACE7

      Treat it only as a way to grind credits and xp but mostly credits. That is it. Nothing more, nothing less. Then you will feel much better playing Frontline. Personally, I've actually started to enjoy grinding credits. Something I absolutely disdain.

    2. 8_Hussars

      8_Hussars

      Agreed, it's normally a tough slog but like the rest of the caps it Is team and RNG dependent.

      (Small sample size)  A platoon of two of us with a helper fast capped "C" twice in a row right off the hop.  The defenders just need to be in slower tanks and relatively passive.  Obviously, we were just going for the fast cap to re-spawn elsewhere but things worked out.  

      Not sure there is "meta left".  Was on a team that could not take A (and I was trying)... but managed to take B/E and C/F and had the objectives down in my quickest game (10 minutes and change)...

    3. SoliDeoGloria

      SoliDeoGloria

      Only really reliable way is to wither defenders down, or wait for B to lose, and have people coming in from the side, until you can just stack a couple of tanks on the cap. The thing is, the way it plays out is different every time.

  8. So I just watched Shishx platooning with Orzanel and another youtuber playing the 260. Holy shit it is as fast as a Batchat with a 440 gun and has armour? Russian engineers must have have been geniuses.

    1. woe2you

      woe2you

      Also standard APCR with workable handling. It's a beast, I don't regret the blood, toil, tears and sweat.

  9. Looking at the Chieftain it seems o me that a good way to pen it when non hull down is to face hug it. Tanks like the IS7 or anything with a good turret should do the trick as it is very low to ground. Also tall German tanks should have a easier way to pen it on close range. HEAT helps as the hull armour is more sloped than thick.

    Still it is broken as fuck and it should be nerfed or have never been introduced.

    Also the turret has a clear IRL weak spot where the machine gun is, but WG being WG of course did not model it. 

     

  10. So while playing the t49, because it is the one of the few fun and unique tanks left, I noticed that a friendly 277 could keep up with me....

    GG WG. This game is broken beyond repair.

      One of the perks of doing arty missions is that when the game is wrapping up as a win you're in the perfect position to nuke a clicker on the way out. Drop an "ALLAH AKBAR" in chat for extra lulz.

    4. nabucodonsor

      nabucodonsor

      It's the first time I TK all of my arties, I always repeat myself " it is not their fault, blame WG for this stupid mechanic" and " you will just make your team's game worse ect". But Jesus Christ having these scumbags in every single game, seeing them drown themselfs to deny you the final damage, punish you for being aggressive just pushes (clicks) my buttons. Anyone who plays arty either does that for the stupid missions or/and to fuck other player's games, so for once in my life I wanted to fuck them. It is their fault too, they know that they just make everyone's game worse by clicking that red button.

      Probably I should quit this game like I am slowly doing without realizing it.

  12. WG: buff E5

    Player base: E5 too OP OMG NERF REEEE

    WG: ok E5 nerfed but we will also add the SConq which is stronger than the E5 ever was even after its buff

    Player base: lets rush for the OP OP new tank. Zero fucks given about "balance issues"

    WG: $$$

    1. Assassin7

      I never got that either

    2. nabucodonsor

      nabucodonsor

      Because the playerbase is retarded.

      When the E5 was introduced it had no competion so it felt more OP than what it really was. By the time the E5 was nerfed and the SC was introduced we got used to the idea of OP tanks. So now WoT has become Call of Duty: Russian tank simulator with few exceptions. And the E5 payed the price for it.

      QB said that the discounts need to be applied before 1.4 goes live.

  14. Russian tanks are so retarded. No other tanks in this game have such strong side armour that allows them to survive in impossible for others yolo situations. Especially their turrets are completely fucked up. Their side turrets are stronger than STB's turret front. It makes no sense at all. I guess though russian players when they want to yolo someone they want to feel the POWA and give zero fucks of anything else.

      I got the Defender from a box and I am inclined to agree

      nabucodonsor

      Yeah it is undeniable that Russian tanks are retarded

  15. Fuck the E3 seriously. The amount of impossible ricochets and misses I get with this retarded gun is beyond me. I bounced a fucking Conway twice in its turret and twice a Strvb, an Amx Cda ect, 

    That gun has trolled me more than the ISU's and t49 combined. And it always misses or doesnèt penetrate targets I need to hit to win the game.

    The armour works only hulldown since even tier 8s pen me, and the side armour is fucking retarded. The t95 is a better tier X than this pile of shit

  16. E3's lfp is trash. People keep snapping it and penning it like butter.

  17. If you want ask WG some questions and not recieve any answers follow this link: 

    Apparentley they are going to do a major "rebalance" in 2019 with the introduction of new Komrade Tanks.

    4. nabucodonsor

      nabucodonsor

      They say no to any Serb style nerf-bat. So yeah those times are over.

      Apparently yes we will get new russian tank because this game needs more russian tanks

  18. Even QB says the Leopard 1 sucks and deserves a buff. I guess someone at WG allowed him to say so? Does this mean future buffs?

    Or maybe they'll do what some people have been suggesting like downtiering the PTA and  Leo1 and introducing the A1 as tier X.

      @FavreFan4ever even if it had amazeballs gun stats allowing it to snap in miliseconds wg could always nerf its camo so it's not game breaking late game and it would be balanced.

    3. nabucodonsor

      nabucodonsor

      @FavreFan4ever  Type 5 is broken because of the armour and the retarded HE gun. If you take away the 500 fuck-you-hulldown-IS7 it is just a Japanese Maus.

      The Leo would be balanced by not having armour so it will not bully lower tiers and carry in brawling maps or hold a line. Almost every med has some turret/hull armour that allows them to brawl or have a clip potential making them work even in close combat scenarios. Also the lowish alpha and mediocre dpm would stay. The only thing it needs is the gun that can snap and make every shot count. Even the K91 has some sort of armour with huge camo values. 

    4. leggasiini

      leggasiini

      High tier paper armor tanks have historically been broken only if they either have very polarized autoloader (WT E100 or TVP right when introduced), oneshotting capabilities (Shitbarn, even then I dont mind it much) or minmaxed gun with big alpha + great mobility (prenerf Grille, which wouldnt even be that dumb in current meta imo).

      Leo 1 doesnt have neither high alpha or autoloader so its almost impossible for it to be broken unless it either has +3.5k base DPM or utterly overkill pen (more than TDs). I cant imagine Leo 1 ever becoming even good, let alone broken, if they dont SERIOUSLY buff it.

      Just started playing Grey Goo. Really liking it a lot, reminds me of old school C&C and Red Alert. Probably because it's a lot of ex-Westwood devs. On sale atm too.

  20. Isn't wierd that there hasn't been no news of balance changes in the last 6 months or so? Has WG given up? The only thing I have heard of is about the wheeled tanks that the game really does not need.

  21. So FAME is dead......

      A lot of players had some some personal problems with Dakillzor from interactions with him or the way he ran the clan, and left to make their own clan named ROIDS. That got the ball rolling, and more players left to other clans until Daki finally quit. Daki is a very good caller, and I think he's a nice enough guy when in a good mood, but he is often very very toxic and arrogant as well. 

  22. So last night it happened I got bored with this game. I was so bored i had to stop playing. It is not fun anymore. Always the same shit over and over again.

      The game is ultra-salty solo and past a certain point ultra-boring. I try to play with frens whenever I can but even then it gets stale quickly. Besides, I've come to the point where I've basically ground out every tank which interests me (i.e. all the good heaviums), so the only thing that amuses me anymore are CDC/Chiri platoons or triple tryhard Type 4s.

      Tldr dont force yourself to enjoy the game because you can't.

    3. hazzgar

      hazzgar

      Yeah I'm there too. I'm only playing the game because I'm poor now and can't afford to ride my downhill bike so it's better than alcohol which the doctor told me to drink in moderation

    4. nabucodonsor

      nabucodonsor

      The worst part is winning and feeling nothing or even be angry about it. When i started it was nice to win, when I improved my gameplay it gave me some accomplishment, when i had my rare 3k wn8 sessions it was good; now when I win I either dont care or am angry because I carried some unthankful morons to victory. When I lose I either feel bad because I made some mistakes or because my team was full of idiots.

      CWs are bad and it takes too long to get all the tanks you want.

      Getting new lines is tedius and way too grindy.

      The constant powercreep is annoying at best.

      The entire core of this game is bad aside from the fact you have an arcade "ww2" tank game which was its only saving grace. The introduction of shit tanks, the terrible mm, the soviet bias, the incompetence of a company that cant and will never be able to replicate its succes and even worse, cant seem to mantain it, is terrible. 

      The only thing that kept me going foward was the idea of selft improvemnt, but I have come to realize that to play well I need to be not as tired as I have been this year due to my studies. And infact when I am not tired I can reach good levels of gameplay. So I can consider myself decent enough. And I am fine with that.

  23. Guys run the T100lt with rammer optics and binos. The raw view range can help a lot as vents is almost useless

     

    1. TheChang

      TheChang

      I 3-marked it with binocs optics and vents

    2. nabucodonsor

      nabucodonsor

      Eh the rammer helps me to permatrack and have some dpm to fight against tier 8s. Vents does almost nothing

    3. Sapros

      Sapros

      Vents make me feel better about myself. Worth it. 

  24. I have just realized that the 430U has more and better armour than the IS4 and the Lewandosky or whatever the tier X polish is called. Hell it's more amoured that the 705a. And these tanks are supposed to be super heavies.

    This is sad. And bad.

      It has probably the second best turret in the game, better for sure than the IS4. The UFP bounces most regular rounds unangled and is weak only to prem. LFP is tough even for tier 8s when angled and sidescraping is a monster. The IS4 works only when angled at 45 degrees

      The only weakness is that it cant facehug as the hull roof is overmatchable

    3. Kolni

      third best, sconq turret is still better because of the stupid shields

    4. nabucodonsor

      nabucodonsor

      Not really the SConq has the cupola and the lower frontal part of the turret weak to 340 HEAT while the 430 has a weakness only around the gun. Now against 325 APCR they are both immune, but SConq's turret can be overmatched (and I just discovered this ) by 155mm guns while the 430's turret can not be overmatched.  Against very high pen guns they both get much weaker but to me is seems they are on equal terms in this regard.

      So i think the 430 is  better.
