      Sarcasm. It's a horrible tank.

      Its the player not the tank!!1!

  2. Can someone confirm if this is a 0 skill bia crew or not? If it is I will buy 3, if not I won't bother at all
  3. Pref 8s seem to be getting almost exclusively 5 T9s and 10 T8s MM...seems worse to me.
  4. The new MM system they are planning to implement is going to help all of the D-25T prems significantly because there will be less tanks in the match that you will have issues penning. Worst case scenario the enemy team will be at least half t7 for you to feed on.
  5. So since unlocking the top gun and switching to vents this has gone from borderline ragequit status to possibly my favorite tank. I don't have mods or any session tracking to confirm but I'm pretty sure the past 2 days since the upgrade I've been in the 2.5-3k dpg range and boosted my WR from like 40% to 56%. What I thought "sniping" was before, I've been doing it all wrong this tank is a fantastic opportunist and flanker. If you are patient and wait for no guns to be pointed at you you will be richly rewarded. Open maps are actually more difficult in my limited experience, and you can actually brawl surprisingly well if you flank and watch reloads and understand that you will never bounce a shot in your life.
  6. So I have a question about how to play this tank on city maps such as ruinberg. Obviously the ideal is to chai snipe so that your HT-like camo doesn't cause problems but when that's not possible do you recommend going to "heavy" areas and just poking on reloads or is there something else you can do? It seems that if you go places like field on ruinberg or sigfried line etc. then you just have to hide behind a building the entire game because as soon as you poke you're spotted. I'm borderline debating dropping optics in favor of vents since you can't outspot anything anyway.
  7. Can someone please explain why the STB-1 costs so much XP to unlock compared to every other t10 med (except the obj. 430)?

      Monetizing the masochism of players that would grind the Chi Nu, Chi Ri, Chi To, stock STA and stock STB.

      Not looking at the tree right now but i believe the xp cost of tier tens has to do with the cost it took to get up the line. For instance the 48 patton has a lower xp requirement because it also requires a 60k xp gun unlock. I believe they try to keep each complete tree around the same total xp requirement so if a tier ten is part of a line without a bunch of huge stock grinds it will have a higher cost than a tier ten that involves an xp heavy tier 8 and 9 for instance.

  8. I've liked every tank in this line except the Chi-Ri which is the only tank I have ever completely freeXP'd past.
  9. Hey guys So I've been trying to work on fixing some issues with my game that have come up in the past couple of months. Around like october/novemberish I was pulling light blue recents of like 1800/55% and around thanksgiving I took a break due to some RL stuff and didn't play for probably a month and then since then I have been terrible. I've had some good games here and there but I've been playing way worse and I'm stuck in this rut where every time I log in I play a couple of games badly and then I log off again because I don't want to keep playing if I'm not playing my best which is a rule I made for myself a while ago that worked really well for me. I have gotten the advise from several people to stick to one tank and focus on that one which has worked for me in the past. This time it just seems like whenever I do that I keep getting into bad situations in that tank and win like 1/6 games before I get mad and go play something else which I know is not happening. So bottom line I know that I need to just get though that and let myself re-learn some things that have clearly regressed. So I am looking for some help picking a tank that will serve me well to get my play back to where it was like 6 months ago. Skills that I need to work on: Map awareness: both deployment and also flexing Vision/camo aiming:specifically leading shots or shooting on the move/poking ridges etc not fully aimed shots I know it's tried and true to play heavies to boost WR and whatnot but I feel like I need to play more of the map because when I have played heavies lately it seems like I'm just always spotted from places I don't remember being able to get spotted from and a lot of the spots I used to use are not working for me because my awareness is not what it was. So I think I'm probably looking for a medium so that I can practice adapting do different situations which I used to be a lot better at. So heres some tanks: t10:FV215b T9:Type 61, Cent7/1, ST-I (none of these have their top gun if that affects anything) T8: STA-2, T-34-3 (my most played tank ever if that affects anything), JT88, T26e5, FV4204, 110, obj 416, IS-3, T-34-2 (I thnink these are all elited) T7: Panther/M10, E25, IS-2B, ISU-122S, FV201(A45), Type 62, T-34-1, AMX 12t(I know this is t6 technically but it gets the same MM) And I don't really want to go any lower than that because I feel like the game is just different at lower tiers and I don't really want to develop any habits that aren't relevant to the high tier meta. So there it is. Any help would be appreciated. TL;DR: I need one tank from this list to focus on playing exclusively to get some practice and work on map awareness, vision, reading the battle and flexing as well as generally finding ways to win games. Thanks in advance.
  10. I'm down to playing like 2-5 games per session because of my old rule to quit after I feel like I'm not playing well. I think I just suck now.

      Sometimes I play like shit for a few games when I start, but then I power through it and get in a groove. However, if I'm dragging my feet through the muck I'll stop playing.

  11. You lost me at GLD....like wtf man
  12. I can't tell if I really like the FV215b or if I just really like t10. Took me this long to get here but I'm learning a lot.

      Tier 10 is definitely something a bit different or at least it is for me. I can do just fine in a tier 9 tank playing in a tier 10 match but when I get into my only tier 10 (M48) then I just can't seem to do much at all and just end up having very meh games. I have a very pitiful 49% WR and ~2.4k WN8 in the M48. Pretty bad.

  13. I have been waiting so long to be able to get the 112 after the buff, now it's finally possible now that its fucking useless.
  14. Yo is it just me or has the D25T been powercreeped really hard? its hard to pen half the heavies at t8 now much less 9...

      I've considered the D-25 a trash gun at tier 8 since I first ground through the IS-3 in early 2012.  on one hand, prem ammo for credits helps it some, on the other, more hard to pen boxes.

      it has

      also @Sovereign_M the chiness version of the D-25T has a 250 mm+ pen HEAT round for gold ammo

      it's a good gun at tier 6 and 7, pretty suck at tier 8 and up.

  15. Guys its bad decision time again, talk me out of the 252..

      DONT BUY IT BECAUSE AT THIS RATE IN NEXT 3 MONTHS THEY WILL RELEASE NEW TIER 8 PREM THAT POWERCREEPS 252 :serb: :serb: :serb: :serb: :serb:

      Because at the rate of current premium tank inflation the game is going to be unplayable soon anyway? To me tier 6+ is already basically there as of this patch.

      When was the last time spending money on WG was a good investment for you?

  16. Maus best medium 2017

  17. You're right, that was rude of me, and I apologise. What I should have said is I love winning... But I hate low tiers more.
  18. I love winning... But I love it for a different reason than you clearly. If you're not winning at the highest level possible it means nothing.
  19. I think I have the same mouse. It has a button that decreased DPI when held yes? If not I apologise for misremembering but I recommend a mouse with this setting to anyone. I used to have terrible aim and now I feel my aim is merely average (or "above average to good" compared to the majority of wot players but let's be honest that's not saying anything) but the mouse made a huge difference. I hate playing with low sensitivity in general but when I can lower it significantly while aiming it makes a huge difference in being able to aim with precision. Now I don't think about my aiming anymore unless I take a bad shot here and there and only focus on making good decisions in the battle which I'm still terrible at XD So tl;Dr: if you have the mouse I think you do try learning to make use of that thumb button and if not then I recommend looking into a mouse that can do that.
  20. Shoot sieds of tenk komrades. I'm not saying this thing isn't op as hell but I doubt it performs better than the t26e5. It's just going to piss you off more if you still use Xvm because complete potatoes will be able to perform in it.
  21. Just stop playing whenever you're even a little bit tilted and go take a walk or something. The only thing personal reserves can do to negatively impact your results is make you want to play longer than you should to "get the most out of them" which is counter productive. If you just stop when you aren't in a good state of mind regardless of reserves there shouldn't be a problem.
  22. Type 59: 15 WZ-111: 19 112: 22 T-34-3: 12 59-Patton: 2 FCM 50 t: 19 M4A1 Rev.: 29 AMX M4 49 (Liberté): 23 leKpz M41 90mm: 21 Skorpion G: 24 Panther 88: 20 Löwe: 30: Pz. 58 Mutz (Black): 21 STA-2: 25 FV4202 (P): 2 M46 KR: 21 T26E5 (Patriot): 26 +1 = 27 I had really wanted to give my vote to the t-34-3 because it is my comfort tank (lel) and I didn't want to see it go too soon, but this thing is just too damn good. Basically any game you load into you are guaranteed to make a strong impact unless you make major mistakes. And if you're top tier? forget about it. This thing feels like the 15 year old who got held back playing in little league and blasting home runs off of little children. RRR->take everyone's lunch money->profit. IS6 (Black): 4 KV-5: 20 -3 = 17 Hear me out, the kv5 is really really awesome and I think it might have been better than the is-6 at one time (or maybe it still is I don't know) but fact of the matter is that with the buffs/newer prems coming out this once bully just gets its shit kicked in in a straight up brawl vs the m4-49, t26e5 or the new 112 to name a few examples, and that's not even going into the surprisingly legit crop of mediums we have now or the trolltastic skorpion G. Bottom line, the kv-5 has been power creeped badly and cannot be recommended unless you just love it and don't care that it's not your "best" option. T-44-100: 22 T34: 11 T26E4: 19
  23. YES. I'm sure this happens less than it feels like it does but I had a game last night on fjords in my STA-1. 2.5k dmg and only had a 1 shot proto and arty left and a type 4 heavy a liberte on my team with near full hp and then a rhoomba with like 300. I knew the proto was lurking mid so I didn't want to go after the arty since I would need to go past him and potentially get shot in the back so I went after him first. poked the corner, baited the shot, aimed....800dmg arty hit gg needless to say the type 4 and the liberte couldn't seal the deal....
  24. Yes this is exactly what I'm talking about. Sounds like it is just luck of the draw. If a mod wants to delete the thread I don't mind. Game is just especially snowbally today.
