    Supertest, PMM tank armor buffs

    I am not 100% sure, but did they model the second cupola on the super pershing now? I think i got hit there a couple of times.

    P.44 Pantera....tier 8 MM

    Sometimes I really do not get the hassle people are having with certain tanks. I'm 122 games in it with a 62% winrate and 1900 average damage. I hear so many complains, and just want to ask around, why you think the tank is an underperformer? It has very good mobility It rarely (if never) needs gold rounds (i carry 3) It is a singlegun medium with the option to dash out three shots very fast. It is a better Panther II and can be played like one. The good mobility helps to relocate quickly. For me this tank is a logical continuation of the two predecessors. I would like to hear your input :)

    r9 270x to 1050 ti

    So, I wanted to share my 1.0 FPS experience. I currently run the game on ULTRA and, only the shadows on medium and object LOD on once below max and i get 80 - 100 frames. Under harsh conditions when 10 or more tanks are displayed it sometimes goes down to 75 FPS. This is very nice, i must state. The CPU is by no way a bottleneck, as @Folterknecht feared it to be. My CPU rarely goes over 17 - 20% of load, even with havoc enabled. So long: Thanks for all your help PS: I sold my broken 270x for ~80 Euros. Geez, even though i made it perfectly clear it does not work anymore. Well ..

    r9 270x to 1050 ti

    Sadly, no. I still need to work I did not, but I was using the Encore test system recently. With my 270x i had around 6000 Points on Ultra, iirc. /edit: Might be, but the CPU is still working, the graphics card not so much ;-)

    r9 270x to 1050 ti

    Thank you for your input. I guess I will order then. Unless the mining boom stops over night :-)

    r9 270x to 1050 ti

    Updating the CPU would most likely result in a full platform upgrade. It is an AM3+ CPU and getting a new CPU (i.e. Ryzen) would result in new RAM, new CPU, ner Cooler. That would be something to get in a couple of month maybe I read, that the 270x and the 1050ti would perform "alike". Does the extra 2GB of vram make that much of a difference?
  8. Hey everybody, I'm currently running a R9 270x, but the card is near its end of life cicle and needs to be replaced, because it is damaged. Since I am a bit tight on money at the moment (bought a car and sofa) I was thinking to get a 1050 ti (4gb) until the mining market allows me to buy something better. Do you guys think this will run relatively smooth with wot 1.0? At the moment I run 9.22 on max settings, appart vom AA and max shadows (don't like them) and run with aroung 80 - 100 fps. (current setup see below) My goal is not to buy a super high end graphics card. I just want to play the game with at least comparable settings, with the same amount of frames. I was looking for the 1050 ti, because its 150-170 euros, depending on the currents rates here and there. I can spend up to 180 Euros, 200 would put me in a tight spot. Apart from that I need to work with my computer, so the option to "wait a bit" is invalid and i need a replacement relatively soon. Regards EricBrogar! /Edit: Forgot: I only play at 1080p Current setup: CPU: AMD FX 8320 RAM: 8 GB GPU: AMX R9 270X

    +/- 25% bogus?

    I did not Ram him, I did not fire a single HE shell that game. The only thing possible would be a fire the splitsecond it dies. But can tanks catch fire without having a damaged module?

    +/- 25% bogus?

    No, Sir. No ramming at all. I was wondering if it was a "microfire" a splitsecond before it died. But then again I did not deal any module damages.

    +/- 25% bogus?

    So, I had this match in ma jpze100 a couple of hours ago. Fired AP, no fires whatsoever. Sadly no replay. Display bug or is the game just using its own numbers and the wg dev just play with the players by telling the numbers are +/-25%

    Leo, tier 7 medium

    Still I am not convinced that the Leo will be any more pleasant than the A-44. In addition to that, btw, the armor is penned by 40mm HE pen :/

    Leo, tier 7 medium

    What you get from the turret you lose from hull and moving.

    Leo, tier 7 medium

    I don't know. Played it, felt like the A-44, which is shit imho. Just check the dispersion values. Worse than the A-44. The front turret helps alot but if you go fast you still sit like 4 hours still fo have a usable reticle ...

    AMX M4 1949 French premium heavy

    From the perspective of someone who already played it: The tank has the same weaknesses the japanese heavies have. The front shoulders. If i recall correctly, they are (when angled) something around 180 - 200 mm. And the ammorack sits behind them. This leaves you only the choice of not angling your hull. This works fairly well, since the armor then is around 250mm everywhere, but at the cupola of course. I personally found it hard to stand straight at the enemy, because often you fight at corners etc. Another thing i remember: I think the UFP is weaker than the LFP (due to the angles), but i have to recheck that. All in all its an OK tank, but i wouldnt say its super strong. /edit: I checked something. Beware angling )))))
