    CN_Minus reacted to Fabunil in E50 88mm analysis   
    All that theoretical DPM of the 88 is nice in theory, in practice you won´t really be able to (ab)use it all that well because your targets will simply drive back into cover unless he is either braindead and sits in the open or tracked which is the 2nd problem of the gun: It can´t destroy the tracks of tier 10 or even tier 9 tanks in a single shot when you hit the frontal or rear sprocket unless the track was already damaged before (I believe it also struggles to oneshot-track tier 8 heavies but I´m not sure)

    CN_Minus reacted to Rexxie in Is Boosting Bannable?   
    It's not the same because WG actually designed the camo mechanics. They are made to be used the way good players use them. WG did not design boosts. The mapmakers probably gave 0 thought to most of the boostable areas by assuming no one would get to them anyway, so you've got everything from gamebreaking boosts to completely useless suicide outposts because they've not been balanced for actual use whatsoever. Winning via boost is not cheating, but it certainly is cheesing.
    Removing them is a bit harsh, but WG definitely has to do something about them. I'd like it if they just accepted that players will find ways to get places and put in the effort of designing maps around that, instead of artificially limiting where we are allowed to go.

    What's more disgusting is your sub 55% WR. Maybe you should lay off padding and actually try to, you know, win those games? All those numbers say is that you're a padded teal who's pretending to be a good player.

    With eyes wide open, and the whole point was to demonstrate 1. How unimportant it is 2. How y'all been misusing the numbers.  So basically your reaction is exactly what the intended effect amongst the intended population. Which is why the denizens  (self included) are gleeful. You misunderstood and misused my metric (for 3+ years) so now I  (figurative) am misusing your feelings  (for a few weeks). Then we can go back to normal at least until WG changes MM and we can declare WN8 fully invalid and all just use PR.
    I suggest,  with complete seriousness, fantasy sports, blackjack or a career in data science.

    CN_Minus reacted to Never in The 0 Recent WN8 Bug   
    Hello,
    So a few days ago we ran into a big problem. Players from the NA server were no longer getting their WN8 values. These issues sometimes happen to one or two players every few days, and it fixes itself after the next stats update, but this time it was affecting everyone from NA, and it didn't fix itself with time.
    To debug the issue, I put in a piece of code that displays any errors from the database queries. If anything was going wrong during insertion or recovery of stuff from the database, that would show. And it did, in the table that holds the records of a player's individual tanks:
    'SQLSTATE[23000]: Integrity constraint violation: 1062 Duplicate entry '2147483647' for key 'PRIMARY'' So the programmers among us probably know that number. For everyone else, that's the maximum value that a signed 32 bit INTEGER variable (used to store whole numbers) can hold. This PRIMARY key in particular was the ID, a unique identifier for all records added to the database. When I first created WoTLabs, I set the ID up as was normal: Signed 32 bit integer, with AUTO_INCREMENT, a column attribute that keeps track of the latest ID added, and automatically increases it for the next record insertion.
    So things were going normal, records were being added every day by the hundreds of thousands, and this ID value kept going up and up and up. The way this table works is simple. When you request your statistics, the API returns a list of tanks. For every tank in that list, the system adds a record to the table with the relevant information. It does this every time it updates. To put it into perspective, I took a look at how many individual tank records my account has: Over 400,000.
    Then, a few days ago, the ID value finally hit the magic number. Since it can't hold a bigger number, the AUTO_INCREMENT couldn't raise it any farther, so it kept trying to add new records with the same ID. Problem is that, being a PRIMARY key, the ID has to be unique.
    Now the reason this affects the stats: The system is not set up as an all or nothing deal. It first updates your overall statistics to the most recent ones. Then it inserts a record into the account_stats table, which holds your historical data for your entire account. Then it adds your individual tanks. If the process fails in the individual tanks part, it already did the other two. As far as the system is aware, your account is updated normally. When you look up your stats, the system looks for the corresponding individual tank information. In this case, it can't find it because it was never added, resulting in stats at 0.
    So how was it fixed?
    I had a few options, but most of them required a LOT of time. Since the table is so big (over 2 billion records), anything I do that would cause it to rebuild (nearly everything) would take days.
    First option would be to change the ID from a signed 32 bit integer to an unsigned 32 bit integer, which would give me 2 billion more records or so.
    Second option would be to change it to a BIGIT, which would give me 6 billion more records or so.
    Third option wold be to completely remove the ID column, since it was pretty much useless.
    Fourth option would be to reset the AUTO_INCREMENT value to 1, since because of a very old issue, the first records had an ID of over 100 million, so this would give me 100 million more records or so.
    Fifth option would be to create a new table for the individual tank records, without an auto incrementing ID to prevent this problem from happening again, and use the old one for historical queries only.
    I first tried the second option. After 20 hours, I noticed that the operation was causing the database size to increase, and it was going to take up all the space I had, so I cancelled the operation and went back to the drawing board.
    Next I considered the third option, but it would run into the same problem that the second option did. Same for the first and fourth options.
    So the only option left was the fifth option. I already had a table that held detailed information for a player's tanks. Basically the same as the old table, but it included all of a tank's statistics and the records were updated instead of a new one being added at every update.
    So I adapted that table, added some things that I needed to add, changed some things I needed to change, and the table was ready to go. Next, I updated the code to include some logic that decides which table it should check for the individual tank statistics and there we go.
    Remember kids, when planning your database, consider the fact that your website might explode in popularity and you might have more records in your database than you would have in your wildest dreams, so account for that

    I can almost guarantee you its got almost nothing to do with a dislike for tanks. Something happened in his personal life, not liking tanks wouldn't make him be completely silent even on facecam and not even talk to the couple people who came into his ts channel and then just end the stream with "THanks for the donations and fun times guys, bye." at the end all dejectedly. I guess we'll find out. I think he'll come back once he's got things situated and hopefully he'll be in a better place and happier.

    CN_Minus reacted to Assassin7 in #eatdixgetclicked - sela's Q&A Thread   
    Yes, which leads me to believe its a personal thing. If he was just quitting tanks he would explain it, and would still probably stream other stuff like he does regularly. But because of that, its something serious that he doesn't want to elaborate, and its sudden, so its recently happened. So something has happened that had thrown his life out of whack suddenly and completely, that is private and which he doesn't even want to say the general "personal things happened"
     
    So I hope that you make it through whatever life throws you Sela, we in the Wotlabs Community will miss you mate.

    CN_Minus reacted to KillerTiger in T54 Help   
    Don't rely on the turret armor of a t-54.  You shouldn't be playing a game where your confident when hull down with it like you can with a 62a.  To be most successful with medium tanks you need to have a nice balance of passive/aggro gameplay, or to sum it up, smart gameplay.  Playing a t-54 when you're top tier is going to be drastically different than when you're in a lobby with a multitude of t10s.  Top tier t54, you can get away with playing very aggro as the armor is going to be good enough to be fairly consistent against the tanks you're facing, just be smart if you're trying to play a hull down game against t9s with higher pen guns.  As for t10 games, getting initial spots or just taking a good position is crucial to get some early damage in and establish some control over an area, but you do want to be much more mindful of the tanks you're peeking against and, this is just a general rule, don't be afraid to ditch an area when it's obvious that you will get overmatched and die; use its speed and camo to your advantage.  Honestly there is no special way or tricks to playing a t-54 or any other ru med, they are about as close to straightforward medium tank gameplay as you can get.
    Also, don't use statistics like that to get an idea of how you should be playing in it, even at 41 games the sample size is near meaningless and you shouldn't attempt draw any conclusions from what your dpg/win rate was in the first few games.

    CN_Minus reacted to TheMarine0341 in T54 Help   
    I had a VERY similar trajectory in the T-54, but I even took it down further to 1750 average DPG at 409 battles. Sold it, and only repurchased it earlier in the fall. My playstyle has significantly changed in it, and for the better.
    1) Dont use the armor to bounce, use the armor to troll and minimize exposure
    2) Help minimize that exposure with liberal amounts of cHEAT.
    3) Maximize knowledge of reload times between tanks, know when you can 2 for 1 safely and get most of your tank covered before a return shot.
    4) Its the perfect tank to be the "Wrong tank class in the right position" tank, which harkens towards @Assassin7's brawling comments: IE - Top tier on Himmels, not a lot of tier 9 HTs? OWN the Tank Alley on the 8 line

    I would say you were doing something correct when you first got it.
    Did anything in your gameplay change while playing it? Like did you get more passive? Or perhaps over-extending too much?
