  1. another fine example of contact with a pubbie... note we lost.. I did 4500 damage in a 3-5-7 game in a conway and my team still managed to find a way to lose. 

    This moron messages me after the game accusing me of cheating.. then his clannie messages me accusing me of .. talking shit about his clan? 

    so... "platoon 2 was running cheat mods"... but then why the fuck message me? I was solo.. my brain hurts


    .. that first conversation did have some more to it where I told him to stop failing at seal clubbing tier 6 average since he was so good. ... maybe that's what got them all riled up. 

    1. hazzgar


      Yeah I had some recent contact with a pubbie who slammed me for being noob on my new XVM camo account because I had 52% wr overal and he had 56% WR overal while playing 11k battles (out of 20k total) in t67 (67% wr in this), 4k in a type64 and 2k in a b2... 

      That dude did 0 dmg but I'm a noob because I didn't listen to his late game advice of soloing a med I cannot clip 70% of the time in my elc even...

  2. Called it... this shit is gonna make the yolowagon v4 look like a glass cannon.

      lol... yet

      while there are tanks that have been in the files for a while not in the game.. this is WG.. maybe for a special event or some weird battle mode or something, hopefully... but I think we'll see this in some form or another.

    3. Unavailebow


      It will be, years after the main harvest has ended, as a last resort from the finance department:retard:

    4. hazzgar


      Yeah they are spending time testing it but "it will not be in the game"... Unless it's for some special event mode it will be in the game

      Funny thing is they would lose less money if 1.0 didn't block so many people from playing

  3. SO.. WG says they need to fix prefMM tanks by changing alllll of those tanks, rebalance everything, test them out so they can FIX THE MM right?

    Well.. you know how else they can fix this issue?  +1/-1 MM.. everything becomes prefMM.. which do you think takes more work to enable?

    Fixing 10+ tanks or.... changing the MM brackets to +/-1.  Hmmmmm

    What's the actual goal here?  Overbuff and sell more. .

      Agreed, but don't you think it would be easier to balance/tweak between tiers at +/- 1? I mean, they've so far failed with +/- 2.... maybe on purpose.

      The cynic in me sees their past rhetoric and their decisions.  It seems they really want to encourage people to get to tier 10 regardless of whether the player wants to play at 10. 

      Well, I found this funny:

      T10 is their "endgame" and a big money sink, of course they want you to get to T10 so you'll either buy prem tanks or prem time (or both).

      I often do the route I saw hairlesmonkeyboy do many moons ago from north spawn and spotted lots of stuff going hill and east side rails so I went and stayed on the crest of the hill.  It took the team some time to get going but eventually they started shooting lit tanks.  The enemy put 10-12 tanks on the east side and a couple in F6 so the 1/2 line was barren and low risk to push anyway.  More often than not I just surf the ridge and exploit openings as you mentioned.

    3. HowitzerBlitzer


      10K? Did that in my E25 once.

    4. kreigermann


      that's because the E25 is a LT incorrectly-categorized as a TD. I've pulled a 9k +(3k/6k or something like that) combined in it, but I absolutely despise anything below tier 8 so I don't play it very often.

  5. thought of the moment

    When I feel even a little guilty for spending the amount of money on this game I have over the course of several years..

    then I look at how much my other hobbies and current new interests have/are costing and it helps me realize in the big picture wot is really cheap even when fully funded out of pocket compared to my current next venture. 

    premtime/bucketload of premtans/goldpackages blaaah blaaah blaaah.  for the number of hours spent keeping me out of my other hobbies, I probably saved money..

      One of the reasons my wife likes the game.

    3. hazzgar


      The problem is not money spent but time spent. 

    4. Unavailebow


      On the opposite side you have people like me spending way too much on whatever games it is

      WoT and Warframe in particular, need not to count the exact value but enough money to get my room fill with electronics.

  6. Really nice when you finish it with a great game

  7. pubbies: (while playing cancer)After openly admitting they XVM focused me in a previous game when I was playing a mid tier med when they had far easier shots available to them, gets pant-shitting angry when I oneshot them in my JPE.

      That is what blacklist is for, see someone on my team in arty on my blacklist, load HE and it it's enough for one shot, bye bye, then quickly unblacklist them, send them a message that karma is bitch and then put them back of the blacklist. 

    3. Archaic_One


      The other day I got frustrated that nobody was moving at all on Prok while I was working mid in my 5a against 3 arty.  Obviously as the only non camper, I was getting all of the clicker love.  At one point when I was getting dark one of our arty said 'spot 5a!' . . . I spotted his ass all right - with an HE pen, then for giggles I went ahead and killed our T-92 too, then took an hour off.  Worth it.  You're doing the lords work friend, keep the faith!

    4. kreigermann


      To be clear. I don't typically TK arty... as annoying as fuck as they are and a pure cancer to the game, they are still an asset on the team(ugh, did I just fucking type that?)...  it takes a particularly notable piece of shit to stick out in my memory enough to REMEMBER the match vividly enough to even say something about the XVM focus. When he confirmed my suspicions with something like "yeah I focused him in a match"  It was time to execute his POS ass.

      I click on occasion for missions, I have a reasonable handle on what target priority and angles of shit-on-your-game doomlaser is capable of and what other targets are also viable. (I run modless with nametags turned off) I've focused people and flanks to support an overmatch or protect against an overmatch I understand when I get clicked because I made a risky, over exposing aggressive play. (Yeah, it is still frustrating in the moment though). What I have never done is focus someone due to name recognition, clan recognition or other stupid, non target priority related reason.  That shit is insanely frustrating.


  8. New Glacier map.. is fucking awful. That is all.

      Played it once, had a pretty enjoyable, dynamic game. But whether that's going to be true in the future as people learn the map and a meta develops I couldn't say.

    3. kreigermann


      I had honestly forgotten they put a new map in, or I would have gone in a training room right off. I didn't get it in the rotation until the very end of my session.

      Basically I played the map just off of impressions I got on the minimap and during countdown. Still got one penetrating derpshot but that.. that's just not enough chodepunting.

      SE for sneaky pushes, NW for corridoring, middle is for light dogfighting, the opening to the aircraft carrier in the middle can be used to fire down on the NW corridor like Mines/Abbey

  9. nothing quite like getting set on fire 3 games in a row.. this fucking game sometimes..

  10. Things I learned this weekend: According pubbie XYZ I have impossible to attain stats through legitimate, incremental improvement in play.  

    He could not and would not be convinced that:

    A) I was not a filthy reroll(which contradicts B... if I had some kind of under the table connection with WG, or was using illegal mods.. why would I need to be a filthy reroll )

    B) According to.. .this.. um... person(?),  to achieve these IMPOSSIBLE stats I had to either be cheating by using bots(his word choice, not mine), or have a connection to Russia and WG. (Telling him I don't use mods, further cementing this FACT that I must be connected directly to WG, he implied I had a family member at a high level in the company.. wait, what?!).

    B) I'm REALLY not that good at this game....(OK, he was convinced of that, just not in the way I expected.. he told me over and over that his 45%wr makes him a better player since it is legit. )

    so... yep... I could apparently bot to better stats. FML is THAT how the good players do it?

    3x weekends.. where do these things COME from out of the woodwork?  Its been a long time since I felt so overwhelmed by a sea of shit, but this last weekend just took the cake.



    1. kreigermann


      won't let me correct my second B) to a C).... dunno why.

      Personally, playing 13 105 or BC is the pinnacle of learning to re-position. Usually I just wonder how in the hell am I reloaded already cos i spend my time driving to another spot and think of a plan to engage.

    3. kreigermann


      @SaintLaurentius, I'm currently building up my crew for the 13 105(already have it in garage), and Batchat  is my favorite tier 10 med. <3 it. I was originally planning on putting the iVstabs on the t49 to help me boost it up to 3rd mark but I might just put it on the batchat instead. My only gripe with the batchat is the same one with the t49, ambush an isolated opponent, calculate #shots to kill(ok 2 extra in magazine to kill, time to murderball)... pop in miss one bounce one and low roll ...  a lot like the T49, if you rush your shot or mistime your ambush you're screwed. 

    4. PlanetaryGenocide


      Assassin autoloaders and derp49 honestly have a lot of similarities in playstyle.  The main difference is that derp dumps its load in one big meaty thrust but as a trade-off you have to pick your targets/aim your shots way better since you can't expect HE pens against most things that a batchat or a 13 105 can reasonably expect a pen on

  12. ugh... can I please stop working 13 hour days. :/

      Thankfully I love my job.

      More that you can only push yourself so long to get shit done, and I'm starting to burn out(gettingoldersucks).   Compared to the hours I put in my first job out of college I'm whining about nothing..

  13. Sigh.... 3 day chat ban because I apparently hurt the delicate sensitivities of one of the lowest common denominator in this game we call WOT.

    I probably slipped up and used the "R" word.. .sheesh

    Polluting the game and making 14 of your teammates miserable for 3 to 15 minutes is OK, but call someone a name and that's a punishable offence.

      This is the point where I remember how much better my mental health got when I quit the game.

    3. Errants


      Hey, no need for ad hominems here. I have been reading, and they first sounded like the entitled whines of someone who didn't understand the system. Hence, the comparison. Now, with the knowledge that this HAS happened to you in the past, with repeatable triggers and consequences, I'll change my statement - congrats, you're up to a 50%'ers level on this automated system. You've recognized there's a problem, you've recognized what happens when you do the action, and you can try to fix it in the future - as opposed to wondering why you keep getting chat banned.

      I was unaware that there was the possibility for an automated chat ban system based off of trigger words, mainly because I haven't triggered it. So, sorry for my lack of empathy, but I've found it fairly doable to play the game, get upset at stupid players, and NOT resort to denigrating descriptions of their intelligence, heritage, or other similar pointless and offensive comments.

      It comes down, in the end, to the same basic mechanics as vision control, armor use, and aiming in the game - you've got a system with rules. Learn them, use them to your advantage and profit. Or be ignorant/uneducated about it, and be slapped with the results.

      I've sympathy with someone dealing with bad plays and players. Hell, I've got my own whine status on the boards right now with my shit session from last night. I've no sympathy for someone who starts fucking with the rules, and then bitches about them, looking for pats on the head and a lollipop to make them feel better. You broke the rules, you got slapped. Get over it.

      .... ad hominem?  Heh, ok .. I'm done here. pretty funny though. 

  14. APPARENTLY you can go above max listed damage on a shell:

      Give us replay because it could be:

      • ramming
      • fire
      • splash

      These thing don't count as hits.

    3. kreigermann


      I'll review the replay tonight and see if I missed the tick of damage. I'm confident I never made contact with him, I only ever took one shot up his rear.

    4. kreigermann


      It was in fact, one tick of fire.
      It didn't register on the UI as separate damge like usual though, it just lumped it into one damage record. 

  15. LOL... when someone throws the game by suicide yoloing you instead of holding the position.. by a decent player too. XD funny shit.

    1. Meirzin


      If it was me sorry, I've been suiscouting for credits for the discount. 

    2. kreigermann


      LOL nah. Some dude in a type59.. my team was extremely bad and wouldn't push a 4v1 on him.. I put 2 shots into his ass unlit. SO of course he yolorushes me crossing an open field, abandoning the bads... who now left alone go on to cap it out for a come back win. ... my team should have lost.. if he would have just hung back and did NOTHING except scare my pubbies.. they would have won.

      I own the 430U, and while I haven't played in a few weeks I easily could've done 3k if I'd been half awake. I was literally sitting in the open, bouncing stuff and tunnel-visioning. Absolutely ridiculous.

    3. Tman450


      I have no problems with the 705A. 430U needs a gun handling Nerf. 268V4 needs to be fucking smashed into the ground.

    4. kreigermann


      I can cope with the 705As, also with the 430U... shittytrash play mitigates those two to some degree. When a platform allows goddamn morons to hit W, cross an open field to yolo into your face(FOR REASONS) with zero chance to escape or flank because it reverses faster than some heavies go forward combined with bullshit frontal armor, and a high alpha gun... I have a severe problem with that one in particular. 

      "there's no fucking way they'll yolo me here playing second line support in a mid tier heavy, right?"  oh boy was I fucking WRONG! again... and again.

  17. .... is the 430 very flammable now? I got set on fire the first shot in first game in it at t9..

      I guess I got lucky when it was at tier 10 then.. I don't ever remember getting set on fire playing it. 

    3. Darvek


      I don't think we have access to fuel tank health stats, but I suppose it's possible they changed dramatically. But Russian meds catch fire. It's just what they do.


    4. simba90


      I;ve been set on fire once in 22 games. And that only because I didn't repair my fuel tanks in time. I noticed they were damaged and literally half a second later i'm burning. FF directive and 2 bonds a pop and repair fuel tank and you will very rarely burn. Running food noticeable improves the gun.

    1. king_spaniel


      i logged in and the mission still shows up, so looks like u can still nab an extra 250 bonds for today (at least).  Yet another wonderful incorrect lazy post by WG

    2. kreigermann


      The first two games showed the mission counters for me but then it disappeared all together for me. Was strange.

    3. graukatze


      Same here. At least the grind is over....

  19. Finally got an ace in the EVEN 90.. while not as comfy as the T92, the camo on this thing.. 

    They must have switched over to server stats for A.T. reqs. rather than the insanely high bar they had set on release.

      1,624 is base XP is pretty damn high. Congrats!

    2. kreigermann


      @monjardin I agree that's pretty crazy high for an ace tanker.. I thought I read somewhere around here Crab got a higher XP game that was not an ace.

      its a simple matter of optional restricting api being drawn by 3rd party sources and limiting tds per side.

      they know, they just don't care enough to change it. 

      shitty prem tanks >>> fixing game

    4. hazzgar


      Considering no one in WG is good at the game and supertesters are straight up tomatoes what do you expect?

  21. I thought this was a lost game for sure.   with 5 or 6m left I had to kill a BP(oneshot), SkorpG(oneshot), and a full health T20.

    I  almost feel bad for the skorpG.. I think he trackshotted me twice(LOL). 




    1. kreigermann


      forgot to mention in the post I was one shot to all of them...GG

  22. sigh.... that moment when you accidentally drown on a carry-able game because reasons... :(

  23. So, with the changes to cammo rules with that last micro patch.. Do the special holiday cammo sets permanent like the clan cammo, or can you swap them around? 

  24. @CraBeatOff thanks for letting me perform some chemotherapy on Karelia last night. If that damn  skorpG didn’t get lucky on me I was planning on sui-splattering myself on your E75 hull while doing a parade style barrel salute. 

    1. CraBeatOff


      I didn't notice it was you, but i did honestly have a thought like "oh a LT in the back...hrm we're gonna win but I'm glad this arty is dying"

      I would have been very confused if you rammed me, until i saw the tank and then I'd have been gleeful

    2. kreigermann


      I only noticed and made the plan at the very end when I quick-checked the team list after killing them.  I knew the skorp turdchased me across the whole goddamn damn map, and was cutting up the mid incline.. he would have(and in the end did) ruined my fun plan and needed to be dispatched first.  Was the only way to Valhalla full of shiny and chrome. 



       ah well, that team was freaking awful, story of my entire solo experience last night.

  25. FFS Can I please stop getting city maps over and over when I actually try to mark a LT...
