    when you super grind with all the flags mounted and get between 20-30k exp a game... it dont take that long to grind to tier X.

    Use the superflags for grinding free xp instead, you could easily get 30-40k+ free xp per game on average by grinding some of the operations with all the xp/fxp flags and supercamo equipped.

    No, the PTA is objectively a better tank than the Leo 1

    Only tier for tier, the Leopard 1 hasmore health,  better gun handeling, more DPM , slightly better gundepression and more viewrange.

    If the tanks had the same MM the Leo1 would be considered superior.


    As for the Chung Mu vs YueYang the situation is different as it would now be considered a sidegrade at best, a downgrade at worst even if they were at the same tier as you lose quite a lot for very little gain.

    What did WG smoke lately? Do they role a dice when it comes to alpha dmg? Why does this thing have 440? What is the reason for this? 

    Probably to make it stand out from the other 10 million 120mm guns at high tier, though 440 alpha doesn't seem excessivly high for a 120mm gun or rather 400 alpha is quite low amount of alpha damage considering where the high tier 105mms and the Russian high tier 122mms sit.

    Alpha damage is an arbitrary number to begin with and It's not like alpha damage differences for the same calibre already exist in the game (128mm guns go from 440 to 560 damage, 122mm guns from 350 to 440, 76mm guns from 110 to 170...)

    Yeah I agree, was in 2016 in terms of mindset for some crazy reason. The turret just seems heat proof with 350mm of armor and no big cupolas kinda tricked me. 2450+ dpm is good, vr is good. Though 140 level of UFP? Isn't it 114mm but with much better angling? Also ins't the hull stronger here than t95/chieftain? That one had 90mm hull no?

    The armor values are most likely gonna be almost identical to the T95/Chiftain that has already been in the game files for years as it is the same tank, just reannounced for some stupid reason.

    As for armor values you should always take them with a grain of salt with anything that is more complex than a Tiger-II-esque wedge.

    The IS-7 for example is listed as having 150mm side armor even though 90% of it is covered in 100mm.

    As for the T95-hull even though the old T95/Chiftain also has listed a 114mm frontal armor protection  only a very tiny flat armor zone in front of the drive sprockets is covered in 114mm , the UFP is for the most part covered in only 101/95mm armor sloped at 65° so even tier 8 heavies will have no problem shooting straight through it unless WG decides to do a Murazor and add random additional armor to it in which case anything can happen.

    Isn't this a bit strong? Heat may not be amazing but besides that? 

    It gets APCR as premium (most likely).

    Considering the hull armor is trash (Object 140 level of upper plate, shit unless you use your gundepression plus it can penetrate its own lower plate with HESH...) you are probably better off playing a WZ-11 or 277 unless it gets some insane softstats.

    i kinda suspected the Chieftain would become a CW/reward tank one way or another, although i dont know why they cant just use of one of the 2 already existing versions. 

    Well technically they did use one of the already existing versions:


    The hull/turret are the same for both tanks albeit with some small visual differences.

    The only thing they changed were some random stats and maybe they fixed the retarded side armor of the T95 hull (some parts of the side can riccochet 183mm AP, some get overmatched by 100mm guns)

    Of course, I just don't like seeing it go down.  I am grinding a couple of tanks now that I am not good at.  The only tank that I am grinding and doing well in is the Polish tank. 

    You can always play other tank lines to keep up your WN8-level.

    In any case should you continue to play polish tanks our comimitee would like to offer you their thanks in assisting the good cause of droping the average WN8-level back down to a more reasonable level.

    So playing Polish tanks drops your wn8?   I don't understand how that makes anything great again.  Also, the Italian line is included.  

    You see the problem is that due to powercreep WN8 has become an inaccurate tool to measure ones skill in the game since it is nowadays a lot easier to achieve a high average WN8-level which doesn't actually reflect the true skill of the player.

    Whereas 4 years ago 1500 wn8 would have been considered above average it would today be considered bad/below average by most high-end players.

    To remedy this and keep the rating viable as a way for top-clans to quickly measure the skill level of new recruits it was decided that new tanks/tank lines, including the Polish and Italian line, would be completly excluded from the WN8-rating altogether up until the point where there average global WN8-rating of all players would drop back down to the average rating of 4 years ago.

    What this effectivly means is that these tanks are counted as "0-WN8"- tanks until that point so playing them would lower the WN8-rating across all players as they are played.

    I hope I could clear up any confusions!

  9. Due to the inflation of WN8-values in the recent years we decided to exclude polish tanks from the rating thus droping the global average wn8-rating back to what was considered "average" 3 years ago.

    This decision will most likely affect all newly introduced tank lines/premium tanks introduced after/including the polish tank line up until the point where the average WN8-level drops down to a more managable level.

    This way we will be able to make wn8 great again.

  10. Basically a faster T-44 with more DPM, better frontal hull armor(lol) which of course omes with an Romulan stealth-device installed cuz pancake light tank?

    I guess its side gets overmatched by 122s and it gets less health but still...

    Am I missing something?

    This vehicle is different from its Tier VIII counterpart, the LTTB, because it combines the ability to spot and deal damage at the same time.

    i.e it is different because its better in every way.

    I thought murazor doesn't do the balancing of these tanks anymore...

    Heavies don't dominate the meta enough yet, so let's find something that makes them even more prominent. Oh and let's test it on a russian premium heavy first, because russian heavies in particular are not dominating the heavy meta as much as they used to. o.O

    I don't see the problem, I haven't seen any IS-3s at all in the last couple of months.

    Part of that may or may not have to do with me not playing this game during that time though.

  12. Cancer fighting cancer as I see it.

    Both sides are ruining the game in different way, on the left side we have mentally 3-year olds who have no problem shooting both themselves and their teammates in the foot for a false sense of moral superiority while elevating the toxicity in the game to a whole new level while the other side ruins the game for everyone as WG to this day is still unable to introduce a mechanic that isn't completly braindead to use and completly infuriating to play against.

    The left side can be fixed by simply banning them from the game and the right side can be fixed by actually hiring some guys that actually care about the game instead of mastrubating during work hours, knowing WG neither of those things are going to happen.

    Luckily for everyone there is always the 3rd option called "Just play a different fucking game"

    I think it'll get toned down, maybe even before public test. But I have hope on this based on the 277 getting nerfed, plus WG can pretty much put a turd out as a tank and if it's got a Polish flag on it they'll all rush to free XP it anyway so no real need for this thing to be OP/powercreep.

    The same developer that tested out the 268 V4 on the testserver and decided that it needed a buff before the release?

  14. Everything game mechanic-wise has already been discussed to death already and the only new mechanics introduced in the last couple of years were the swedish siege mode (basically forces your to bush wank), the arty stun (a different kind of annoying as fuck compared to the previous version) and the Italian autoreloader (or whatever it is called)(just a more flexible autoloader).

    Discussions about maps boil down to "Here are your 3 corridors! Pick this one if you got armor, pick this one if your are a bush wanker or pick this one if you want to die quickly!".

    Discussions about new tanks usually boil either down to "Tank X basically is Tank Y but with 10mm more frontal armor and .1 seconds better aiming time!" or "Press W, left click red tanks, win".

    No, they will revoke access to WG's IP, which for some websites is a death sentence.

    You can't just "revoke" access to an IP this way as the usage of it in this case falls under fair use.

    Them writing the opposite in their EULA doesn't mean doesn't mean jack in this case.

  16. Do not worry, this thing will be balanced by having the fuel tanks and ammorack being behind the Upper/Lower plate, so that the Jagdpanzers 420 HEAT can blow it assuming it shoots down on it.

    What is even more amusing is the fact that on top of that retarded armor layout and bylat mobility it for some reason also gets a retarded gun that outDPMs the Super Conquerer/FV215B...

    Oh yeah, clearly, its just could they seriously not think of *any * other options than another T-44? What about just retrofitting an existing, unused T-44 for this purpose? There are more T-44's in the game than there are Sherman's or IS clones.

    Because the T-44 is one of the most comfortable T8 mediums to play?

    The idea behind these rental tanks is to give new players/low tier wankers an idea on how higher tier tanks play without them having to grind, not to give hightier players some random whacky premium tank.
