  1. So the Super Conq is on track. I already have that entire line unlocked but am thinking of re-buying the Caenarvon. Is it still worth getting after the buffs?

      One other question. Was the tier 9 Conq ever nerfed when the Super Conq was introduced?

    3. Diriz0n


      conqueror was berfed.  A combo of nerf and buff.


      Gained stock option of buffed 32pdr. Gained side armour, and spaced armour front hull

      ....on the other hand, lost turret armour behind the spaced armour. Lost HP/T. Lost DPM with top gun


    4. kolni


      yeah its fucking busted as shit lol 3,7k dpg btw

  2. Did the STA2 get buffed during the Japanese medium rework?

      Thanks guys! I'm asking because I'm thinking of grabbing it from Frontlines as a reward tank. I play FL very sporadically and honestly do not think I'll be able to reach any of the other reward tanks and have no interest in getting the WZ, but I have enough prestige to get the STA2.

    3. Diriz0n


      He describes the STA2 in detail. lt is faster, reverses better, and has a narrow block of armour. ls it worthwhile? Well it is alright, not as good as T-44 Hundred

      --It gained alot of gun mantle armour, not the turret just the gun case.

      --It gained 23km/hr reverse speed, up from twenty

      --it pretty much gained 2.5HP/Tonne more

      lnteresting to note the tech tree equivalent, STA1 got megabuffed in comparison. STA1 has great DPM now, whereas STA2 DPM remained mediocre.

      It's a paper tank, it's ok.... it's comfortable at least, speed is just meh, gun and gun handling is ok, everything else is just meh. The WZ is probably not for you, since you like good accurate guns. I should probably play a few frontlines myself.

  3. Has this tank been buffed also with the recent rework of the Japanese mediums?
  4. LOL... after swearing up and down how they will not pay out gold if you already own the tank. Oh my dear WG. You simply get more and more adorable as the days roll by.
  5. That's a pretty sensible thing to do. No reason to experience the hell that is the WZ-131A. The tier 8 is a nice tank but tier 9 and 10 need serious work to be at least decent.
  6. Seems like a backwards way of accomplishing something that is more or less straight-forward but perhaps there are some legal repercussions for doing it the more logical way?
  7. I personally really enjoyed the Maus grind. Tier 6 is an awesome tank for its tier. Tier 7 is a bit shit but not as much as some of the other shitty tanks at this tier. Tier 8 is fantastic and so is tier 9, just need to keep your tanks angled, including the turrets until you are ready to shoot. Currently I'm grinding the AMX M4 54 myself. Tier 6 was solid and I found tier 7 to be actually enjoyable even through many hate this tank. The secret is to use the big gun and shoot only gold (330 alpha), then the tank is solid. Currently am on tier 8. That is a truly awful tank. As if its design
  8. Anyone play EuroTruck or American Truck simulators? Have been seriously thinking of getting into them. Look very much like something I'd love. Also seems pretty relaxing while challenging at the same time.

      What he said. ^

      If you've got yourself a good wheel like a G27 or G29 then the game is great stress relief.

    3. DirtyACE7


      I just played through the demos of both ATS and ETS2, unfortunately I do not have a wheel so used the keyboard. I can imagine though that it's much more enjoyable with a wheel. Might have to invest into one. I really enjoyed both games but ETS2 does feel like it has more going for it, like the world is fuller in it, the maps are more fleshed out.

    4. PlanetaryGenocide


      Hell, even if you just use an xbox controller (which is what I had to work with) it's still great

  9. Foch 155 is the last offering on the BM. I'm glad I grabbed the Blackdog when it was available because not much else was all that interesting. I probably would have picked up the Death Star but not for 23M. That's simply ludicrous.

      Meh, I got the Panzer V/IV for giggles, the tier 3 shitter TD and because I had 50 million credits and nothing much to spend on I splurged on the Foch 155 for the memes (already had the deathstar). Might have not gotten the Foch and bought the IS-6 for memes if it had been sold for credits but I'm certainly not paying gold for that turd.

    3. sohojacques


      Slight regret on not getting the Blackdog. It and the Caravan AX (which I already have) were the only solid deals. Good and effectively free tier 8 premiums with no horror grind attached.

    4. tajj7


      Got the Pz V/IV, its dirty as all hell for a tier 5 limited MM tank and great fun to play a lower tank without terrible gun handling.

      Had most of everything else, or at least the same versions (Type, IS-6, T34), so nothing else really took my interest. 

  10. Seal clubbers everywhere, put your bibs on. The Pz II J is coming to BM for 15k gold.

    Wasn't WG complaining about new player retention or something?

      And apparently they don't like tier 10 gameplay either.

      Pouring 10k 183s, then another 10k Foch 155s tomorrow.

      As we didn't already have enough TDs in t10.

    3. hazzgar


      The td's aren't even a problem. The problem is people jumping straight to t10. 183 players when it was released played like total shitters. 

    4. Matross


      I'm considering buying the Foch 155. Didn't grind the line, but wouldn't mind having one facehug lulz. RIP my credits.

  11. Looks like Caenarvon AX will be following the Alpine Tiger in the BM for 9M credits.

    I don't have one but I have a Patriot which is a similar tank in terms of play style, although I really don't like it. Is it worth getting?

      Getting a tier 8 premium for 9 mil was nice at first. Then I remembered some people wasted a bajillion hours to get it during a marathon and now it's also kinda fucking hilarious.

    3. NightmareMk9


      I got one.  I'm down to 9M credits now.  I hope they don't post more than about 2 more tanks I want.  Otherwise I might need to sell some tier 9s

    4. Action


      Look what popped up in the NA shp as bundle today... right.. the AX.. evn if WG forced me at gunpoint to give them cash id rather take the fucking bullet

  12. Seems like the Death Star is the next offering on the Black Market. Only for a cool 23M credits. I personally don't have one and am not enticed at all about this deal. Is that strange?

    2. HowitzerBlitzer


      Wait they buffed it?

    3. TheChang


      No, they nerfed the 4005 hard enough to make it one of the worst tier Xs again. The only thing it has over the 183 now is gun depression. 

    4. DirtyACE7


      Not selling anywhere near as fast as the gold Type 59. Not worth the credits they are asking. Should be no more than 10M.

  13. This tank is fantastic it also holds a special place in my heart as it was my very first 3 mark.
  14. I've been bouncing this idea around in my head the last couple of weeks. Is the rammer really that important on all tanks? For example, lights. Their reloads for the most part are fast and a rammer takes off a very marginal amount of time off of that. For example going from 4.8 to 4.32 secs. Would I be really hampering myself with using vents instead? And in reality, just how often does one get to realize the actual DPM?

    Also, please excuse me if this is simply a dumb idea.

      I have dropped the rammer on needle guns that reload faster than they aim and on longer loading derp guns (T-49 as Planetary mentioned and ELC bis) that don't win DPM wars and need repositioning anyway. 

    3. Rexxie


      This is something that was argued about even back in my day (hence the article) and I honestly just can't support playing without a rammer if you aspire to be a better player, even if it's inefficient for your current play.

      Kolni's mention of "it depends on how good you are at keeping your dpm up" is really crux of the issue - if you aren't good at keeping your DPM up, Rammer seems less useful - what use is rammer really if you're just going to be waiting for another player to make a mistake so you can shoot again? I think this is really the underlying argument when players suggest it's unnecessary.

      The problem with this is it isn't how top players actually play the game. You're not hitting server records by playing the waiting game of reactionary play; there isn't enough time in a match for that to be feasible. If I wanted to keep 4k or whatever else I was jacking off to, I was going to have to put myself in positions where my damage was limited by how fast I could chamber the next round, not by how many times Xx_T34R64_xX would eat dirt in front of me.

    4. nabucodonsor



      @DirtyACE7 sorry for the late reply ben busy lately. My general rule of thumb is that if, without vstab, it has the same soft stats of a Obj140 with Vstab or better, then it does not need it. So practically only the t100lt and few others like the combat cars.

       But you could try going for a rammer as it has very good aim time and the turret dispersion is very little. It all depends on how much your exposure time is. If you feel you aim for too long and increases your exposure too much then you need it. 

      Another thing you could is because the reload is so low anyway, just dont aim you shots, like I do with the Cromwell. The problem is if you get spotted you risk trading 180 for a lot of your HP.

      @Rexxie the problem with the LT's dpm is that it is a lie: many shots either miss or bounce and the risk of getting hit for most of you HP is a big possibility. So your effective dpm is trash. Mistakes with LTs can be greatly punished because of how easy it is to hit them. 

      Imo it is more efficient supporting by tracking and spotting rather than trying to be a dmg dealer.

  15. Is there any reason to free xp all the top modules on the Bulldog? Seems like it's about the same minus some view range when stock.

    1. hazzgar


      Nope. The tank is as shit elited as stock

    2. DirtyACE7


      Thanks. That's what I thought. Remember reading the tank got nerfed to shit after the rebalance of LT's. I really want to get the T49 but need to get through this shit bucket first.
