  1. Gamers, my long time goal of unicum recents has been achieved has been about ever since I joined this forum.


  2. WoT getting review bombed by their own community... I don't know whether to laugh or feel bad for it. Probably laugh seeing how wargaming has cocked up another thing.

    1. Jesse_the_Scout


      definitely laugh

    2. Private_Miros


      Laugh in a way, but know that most of those frustration are mainly due to those players having an unrealistic view of their own performance and thinking they are good while in fact they are average at best, together with many of them actually hoping for WG to heavily start rigging the game to ensure no streaks and the like happen. As in many cases, average and bad players are even too bad to simply identify and realize the actual problems the game has...

      TL:DR the bombing is deserved, but the reason to do so for many is far removed from the actual issues of the game.

  3. On a scale from 1-10 I have to say I'm a 1 on wargaming NA making a gold season worth playing at this point. Kind of salty because watching stuff from the earlier clan wars seasons actually look really fun.

  4. Ah the joys of the wot NA forums, talking to a guy who doesn't understand why I berate him for "suiciding because I don't like the map".

      Most of the regulars on the NA forums could blow their brains out with a tissue. You're better off having intelligent conversation with a potted plant.

    2. TheTrojanWarrior


      Yeah, I still visit to help people who post threads about wanting to get better at the game and trying to give them tips/linking them to streams that can help them.

      But it's common to see brain dead people a hell of a lot on there.

    3. DrWeb7_1


      You haven't seen what usually happens on RU forums and that's good for you.:biglaugh:

  5. Stuck wondering how to break the mold and go from 2600 wn8 to 3k+.

    1. hazzgar


      Don't grind your credits in tanks super unis like :D

    2. Strigonx


      light tanks

  6. Was probably the most autistic day in wot I’ve had in a while. Some how though it was still enjoyable despite the mind numbing teams (pushing 9 tanks down the beach in overlord for some reason). With a little reservations I can say this has been a pretty fun period in WoT for me. Quite a few things to fix but still fun for the most part. Although keeping in mind I don’t play a whole lot outside clan activities. The occasional random pub honestly doesn’t seem that bad. At least better than the Type 5 Heavy and obj 268 v 4 meta.

  7. So that was a fun NA play off to watch. 

  8. Oh man I just got the leopard 1(free because blue prints) and played a few games in it (only like 3-6) but I’m loving it. The things a damn railgun and does a meaty amount of alpha damage.

    1. Kymrel


      Yeah, I only bought the Leo post-buff after having it unlocked forever and it quickly became my favorite tier 10 tank. The gun is orgasmic.

    2. kariverson


      I find the gun unreliable as I mentioned in a recent rant lol. I don't know some games it just consistently misses everything. 

    3. TheTrojanWarrior


      Understandable the rng can fuck with you quite a lot but the gun for me is 10/10 I cant complain. The speed, gun, and camo make this tank probably my favorite tier 10 to play in pubs and clan wars.

  9. I have to say, I love the redesign of the player statistics page and how smooth it looks along with a lot of helpful information regarding what nation you do well with and what tank class you do well with. 

  10. That moment when 10 of the tanks on your team decide it is the best idea to push ice road on mountain pass as slow a fucking possible.

    1. TAdoo87


      That is the new meta from the north base.

    2. PlanetaryGenocide


      not if it's slow though

  11. What the fuck did they do to fjords. I swear that map just became complete aids for me.

    1. Darvek


      You're probably just playing it wrong. Try spawning on the southeast side.

  12. Getting over it with Bennett Foddy. This game has made me just a little bit salty.                

  13. Happy new year everyone. 

  14. It seems like 5/10 MM would be a better thing for MM to try to find first rather than 3/5/7.

  15. this is-2 doesn't seem to need to aim. just snap a shot in the general direction of a far away target and hit anyways :P 

    1. DirtyACE7


      That's exactly how I found it playing my IS-2 (Russian or Chinese). Just snap shot left and right which is shockingly effective and makes about as much sense as a monkey having sex with a door knob. It's completely fucking bonkers that it works as well as it does.

    2. Devo


      Russian accuracy = The bigger the circle the more accurate the shot.  

      Drink more wodka comrade, and this makes stronk sense.

  16. And then it came to trojan's horrifying realization, that he would have to play the 110 with the IS-2 gun.

    1. Darvek


      And then there's the just as horrifying revelation - you'll have to play the 110 even more after you unlock the next gun.

      Stock 110: Slow IS-3 with bad pen and gun handling

      Upgraded 110: Slow IS-3 with bad alpha


    3. Audax_Bellator


      Just finished this horrific grind in under 50 matches...thank you  48% Christmas bonus and xp bonus

  17. It feels like the frequency of tier 10 battles/grand battles has increased a lot this last patch. Hoping it will help tier 8 MM.

    1. hazzgar


      All my t8 battles yesterday were bottom tier.

  18. And so the credit grind begins. That added multiplier+the credit multiplier will boost the credits by a large sum.

  19. WZ-111 5A first or 113 first? can't make up my mind.

    2. leggasiini


      I feel like the 113 is kinda forgotten with the 5A being there tbh

    3. Assassin7


      probably the 5A, but I highly recommend both. 113 is still a great tank

    4. Meirzin


      I'd get the 5A, I really enjoy it. 

  20. First battle in this IS-2 (non-premium), so far I think I might enjoy the tank.

      The 110 is pretty much vastly inferior to the IS-3 in every way. 

    3. Assassin7


      the 110 is.... meh. It does its job alright, but it was the most boring tank I've ever played. 

    4. hazzgar


      Just expect the 110 turret to get penned everywhere. The armor also has strange weak areas.

  21. Are the boxes completely random?

    2. DirtyACE7


      Did you get any thing else besides gold like premium time or consumables or credits?

    3. Fulvin


      sure. 2 million plus 2x t4 tanks and 9d prem

    4. monjardin


      Gold is so much cheaper on EU that the boxes don’t seem like as great of a deal as they are on NA.

  22. Those boxes worth the buy they look like pretty nice rewards in them.

    2. How_Terrible


      I don't play tanks anymore.

    3. monjardin


      So, officially everyone but @DirtyACE7 that buys boxes gets a Type 59. So, your odds are 100% since your name is not @DirtyACE7.


    4. DirtyACE7


      Fuck me! I was watching a streamer who bought ONLY 5 boxes and got a Type 59. What the fuck is happening? Where's my Type 59 FFS?!?!

  23. How does one play swamp from north spawn in a heavy.

    1. RC_Tank


      Here's what I do in pretty much all my tanks, it's very effective from what I've experienced.


      Green squares are areas where I stop for shots, I usually stop at the first square to get shots on the 0 line and to make sure TDs arent sitting at the second square. Don't push to the second square until your team begins pushing the tanks they sent to the 0 line, or you'll get shot as you try to play the ridgeline. Once you can safely play the second square, it's relatively safe as long as you have support from like D5.

      As the game progresses you'll need to push. Depending on how many tanks they still have, I either push around the 9 line or just clean up by pushing south through the second square.

      Some things to watch out for is when your side almost inevitably loses the castle/city, they'll eventually have shots on you if they push towards your base. If your team loses the 0 line you can't play the middle safely, but thankfully that doesn't seem to happen that often (on NA.)

    2. Assassin7


      I just go north. Go to like C7, wait for our meds to clear the north, push accross to the ramp. Though i play mainly fast heavies.

    3. Fulcrous


      I literally snipe then push to hill underside or reposition for sniping. Swamp is immensely camp oriented and its just not worth being aggressive on it.

  24. How difficult was the step up from blue to purple? I'm trying to figure out what purples do differently than blues.

    2. TheTrojanWarrior


      Not WN8 wise but I know there is a gap but I just dont know how I can make the leap.

    3. monjardin


      From personal observation, “purples” pay attention to the whole map and think ahead with quicker decisiveness. This is done while maintaining mechanics and local awareness on a consistently high level. 

      It kind of reminds me of good chess advice. Imagine the perfect position of your pieces and construct a plan to get them there while also thwarting your opponents goals. Winning is all about positioning and creating imbalances in your favor. 

      Conversely, “blue” players tunnel vision and fail to play consistently. They may choose positions that are strong, but in a different context (e.g. only when you have enough support to prevent getting YOLO’d).

    4. TheChang


      I have recent purple WN8, but I definitely don't feel like I'm a "unicum" simply because I make so many mistakes. One of the things that has helped me the most, is always being mentally active, don't be lazy. Try your best every game, not just the games that are going well for you. Increase your survival ratio. The more games you live to the end in, the more games you impact. One of the biggest things, is pulling more information from your minimap. Once when watching CrabEatOff play, I told him that I felt like he plays the game on the minimap more than on the actual screen! He's extremely good at looking ahead, and always doing the best possible thing possible all the time. Start asking yourself, aloud even. "Am I doing the best thing possible right now? If not, what is the best thing I can be doing right now?" Pay attention to your map and your teammates, and use that information to make correct choices. If you make a choice, and it doesn't turn out well, analyze why, what you should've done, and what you will do next time to prevent the mistake from reoccurring.

  25. The Super conqueror seems to be very prone to arty splash damage. I'm finding this out the hard way.

      Its got 33% on the move and 5% firing. But its not like it sits in a bush firing away. You fire, get lit, go back to cover!

    3. HowitzerBlitzer


      I've had my crew killed twice before the tank while playing one, it's nuts.

    4. TheTrojanWarrior


      Yeah playing a cw match the enemy started shooting HE knocked out all but my driver.
