  1. People throw the word op around when a ship starts performing singificantly better than all the other ships in the same tier which is definetly true for the Gadjah getting an average 56% winrate and doing on average twice as much damage and getting twice as many kills as the Sims, which is by far the worst peforming DD at its tier..
  2. The Gadjah Mada gets a little bit more health and more importantly 600 meters better baseconcealment, better torps even if they can't hit DDs, is a much better firestarter with 3% extra basefire chance and it has much more versatile smokes to round it off. The only thing the Sims is better at is fending off carriers because it gets defensive AA.

  4. At this rate I will reach 4k WN8 without even playing the game...
  5. Considering the KV-4 is a decent tier 8 tank this thing must be the best tank at that tier
  6. Usually people don't parade the fact that they got nothing special after gambeling their money away so you end up with an overproportional amount of people on the forums who got "lucky" compared to what their chances are/were. As a result other people who buy their gifts after seeing those lucky peoples results may end up feeling cheated when their results don't line up with their perceived chances and you end up with those baseless rumors spreaded by the kind of people who also believe that the MM/RNG disproportionally affects them too.
  7. You are right, according to various sources the tier 9 only weighs 65 tons too. If they keep the armor layout the same they would have to increase the armorthickness for all armored surfaces by more than 50% to even reach 100 tons of weight which would make the front and side immune to any round in the game except maybe some T10 TD goldrounds when completly unangled. I think even WG in their infinite wisdom would realize that it would be completly broken.
  8. ARMAHHH If I read these values correctly: UFP 140mm @ 60° (EFA: 244/264/280 against AP/APCR/HEAT) LFP 140mm @ 55° (EFA: 217/232/244 against AP/APCR/HEAT) Sidearmor 130mm @ 57° (EFA: 211/226/238 against AP/APCR/HEAT) (Hello T-22 my old friend...) UBP: 110mm @ 55° (EFA: 171/182/191 against AP/APCR/HEAT) LBP: 100mm @ 45° (EFA: 130/136/141 against AP/APCR/HEAT) So mediocre frontal armor (very similar to the IS-4 in fact) meets retarded sidearmor, so you can angle your tank @45° and bounce most tier 10 standard rounds off your side/frontal armor.
  9. I will be surprised if it is actually able to reach its topspeed on flat ground. That thing would take frustration to a whole new level, I wouldn't even play it if I got it for free...
  10. If these values are to be believed: The tier 10 is going to be about as big as an IS-3 (with a slightly wider hull) Considering it is supposed to weigh ~100 tons (i.e double the weight of the IS-3) only god knows how thick the armor must be to reach that kind of weight with these kinds of dimensions.
  11. Again, the increase in DPM doesn't matter as the small increase in DPM will completly disappear when you factor in the cancerous gunhandeling the KV-4 has. Also, the 1 vs 1 scenario only works in your head, if you factor in usage of terrain and other players the KV-4 will get shat on as every idiot and their mother will just autopen the turretfront. It is slower (The Löwe can actually reach its topspeed on flat terrain), the Löwe faster on any terrain type and slope (though it is still a slow brick) and it turns even slower than the Löwe so I don't even know what you were smo
  12. I thought the first post was just a troll so I didn't bother responding to it... The Löwe is overhyped but comparing it to the Tiger 2 or KV-4 is just an insult to it. Both of them get similar acceleration to the Löwe with the Tiger only getting slightly higher topspeed and traversespeed whereas the KV-4 is just a complete joke. As for as the firepower is concerned, the DPM-difference doesn't matter too much (it goes from absolute trash to regular trash, you will just end up trading shots anyway), KTs gunhandeling does matter but not nearly as much as the ability to actually bou
  13. As an autistic twat would put it: No, it is not overpowered. You need to be a great player like I am to exploit the true strengths of the E-25. You need to know the ins and outs of long range combat strats, positioning and stealth combat like me to perform well in it, it has a high skill ceiling but a low skill floor so a bad player like you will not be able to achieve nearly as much as an artistic tankdestroyer master like me would be able to achieve. Disagreeing with me means you are disagreeing with objective facts and as such there is no point for an artistic bei

      Did you do that with your avatar? If so then good job

      20 minutes spent for one, quite literally, crappy pun.

  15. Santahats are so last year. I spent more time on this on my shitmas tree than I care to admit...
  17. Dat necro though. Anyway, investing in it now is a good way of wasting of money. The speculative bubble is going to burst soon (god knows when, but it will probably happen sooner rather than later, though the longer we wait the bigger the fallout is going to be). Am I salty that I didn't invest in it years ago and didn't become rich off the stupidity of other people? Of course I am, you would think people would have learned after the DotCom-fiasco or the 2007 crisis, but apparently human stupidity is just as endless as the greed of banks. I sure as hell won't feel any

    "The Feast"

    Well, I mean they essentially doubled the amount of decent tanks in the package by doing this. Half of the premiums I wouldn't touch it with a ten-foot pole even if they gave them away for free and 40% have become completly obselete due to the remaining 10%.
  19. New French Heavies "review":

    Tier 8 is kind of trash, paper hull, the turret only works against lower tiers (and good luck meeting them with the current tier 8 matchmaking), trash gunhandeling (not T34 level of gunhandeling but still...), decent mobility (slightly better than IS-3)  and if you load gold your penetration goes from 218 AP to 325 APCR for some fucking reason.


    Tier 9 is great, you actually get some decent armor.

    The upper plate gets ~270/290/300mm EFA against and lower plate gets ~220/240/255 against AP/APCR/HEAT.

    Small tumors are existant on the turret but can be hidding by using the gundepression.

    Gun is decent (127mm is trash, use the 120mm)

    Basically take a M103 and make it better in every single way (better gunhandeling, same DPM, stronger armor with smaller weakspots, better mobility, slightly more health)

    Atleast the M103 doesn't get the shoulder plates I guess...


    Tier 10 is disappointing tbh.

    It is mostly a copy of the tier 9.

    Basically take the tier 9, give it 7 mm more standard pen (even though it is the same gun), improve the gunhandeling and DPM slightly, increase the upper hull armor and give it it 300 more health. It also gets the same acceleration but worse traverse speed because lol engineupgrades (At this point I am 95% sure that the balancing department doesn't know that having access to engineupgrades actually affects the traversespeed of a tank...)

    Not getting penned in the upper hull by 330 HEAT is nice but imo not really worth the price of giving up the tier 9 mm.

    It gets access to an 130mm gun with 560 alpha though you have to give up the nice penetration values of the 120mm (250/280mm AP/AP for the 130 vs 264/325mm AP/APCR for the 120mm)

    It is an option but have fun with those 50/50 dice rolls when shooting at the front of a Type 5 Heavy.

    Overall though if you want to use the 120mm gun you are better of staying at tier 9.

      Few things to note with the tier 8:

      Stock turret is like twice as small, has better armor (sure the cupola is weaker but the top turret cupola gets penned by anything relevant anyway and the entire turret front is cheese VS 250+ pen) and -10 depression instead of 8. You do lose HP and view range, tho. As for the gun stats, the DPM drops marginally and aim time becomes longer (tho 3 sec with top turret is still shit). The bloom and accuracy remains unchanged.

      If you use the 100 mm the stock turret might be actually better option just because of -10 depression, much smaller size and better armor. You dont have a huge blob exposed when peeking from a ridge. 

      Also, the 120 is quite expensive to research and you dont need it for M4 51, so there is an argument to ignore it completely if you wanna go to higher tiers quickly.

      No matter what option you pick, the tank is fucking horrible unless you spam 325 APCR with 120 and even then its underwhelming, and considering it gets the most godly premium ammo in the entire tier it just says how pathetic it is. Its like fucking TVP VTU of heavies, literally, both in shittiness and multiple options of shittiness to choose from.


      Tier 10 with 130 is very nice actually when you get to pen things. I can imagine it being extremely good when it gets to 3-5-7 match. 560 alpha gun on a tank that is probs fast enough to be called as a heavium is a pretty nice kind of flavor. If they only buffed the prem pen to like 295...cus fighting superheavies is rly ass with it. But yea, with 120 its underwhelming, only a very marginal upgrade from tier 9 and basically no reason to play it over Cyka Conqueror.

      2200 HP is also quite low for something that is so huge, especially when the tier 9 has 1900 which is actually quite solid. I think buffing the prem pen to 295 and HP to 2400 would be a pretty good boost for the tank.

      any point in grinding the line? 

    3. Fabunil


      Assuming they dont change anything about it on the PTS:

      If you already have the tier 7, sure, why not.

      The tier 9 is overall probably the best overall heavy at tier 9 and overall the stock grinds are pretty painless (on the tier 8 the 100mm carries over from the other french lines and as @leggasiini said, playing it with the stock turret is actually an option since you essentially get the libere turret (i.e usable turret armor)) and the tier 9 gets the "top" 120mm from the getgo.

      If you want to keep the tier 9 it definetly is worth it, if you grind it for the tier 10 it really is your call, I consider it to be just an inferior super conquer with the 120mm or just a mediocre tank in general with the 130mm.

  20. The only 3 possibilities are that you either: A. Did some ramming damage B. Set him on fire C. Splashed him with an HE shell Either way any discussions/conspiracy theories about what *might* have happened are completly pointless without an actual replay.
  21. Conveniently the flat parts of their armor still just don't have enough to bounce gold rounds.
  22. It is a shitty version of the T-54. Basically remove the things that make the T-54 good (retarded mobility and armor sheme) , improve the gun a bit to "compensate" and you got yourself a T55A. As for the 260, it was decent when it got introduced but it got powercreeped to hell since then, just play the 113 instead.
  23. Do not worry. It gets balanced by having a lower plate that can only be penetrated by gold rounds, dah.
