  1. 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?

      Wait they buffed it?

      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.

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

  2. This tank is fantastic it also holds a special place in my heart as it was my very first 3 mark.
  3. 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.

      Thanks @8_Hussars! That was a great article and right along my own recent thinking or re-thinking about the rammer and taking more into consideration the quality of each shot instead of the quantity. Also, alpha is king in this game, not DPM. I find that personally I do much better in tanks with bigger alpha than with tanks with high DPM.

      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.

      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. 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.

      Nope. The tank is as shit elited as stock

      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.

  5. Kharkov is just another massive pile of garbage. The old one was bad, this is even worse. Massive area of the map essentially unplayable due to nice TD nests on both ends for the 80% of the player base that don't like to stray too far from the base and just sit in a bush, then hide behind a building if and when spotted. Rinse and repeat. Wonderful "dynamic" gameplay, as always. What maps should be all about.

    Yeah it's a great light tank. Better than any tier 8 light and most tier 9's as well. They just had it on NA for sale and I paid like $30 for it.

    Sorry, I was mistaking the tier 9 for tier 10.
  8. WZ-132A, be gone you filthy, cancerous swine of a tank. Simply rage-inducing. Every. Single. Game. Free XPed the last 35k to get the tier 10.

      Chinese tier 8&9, 100mm gun acc is spectacularly bad.

      For the tier 8... You can actually run it with the 85mm to pretend it is the old WZ-131. It is about the same DPM if you use the bonds rammer, bonds vents, food, BIA, against old WZ-131 with vents and rammer.

      tbh, it is probably more fun.

      I found the T10 alright as a medium with camo on the move.  The T9 was trash as already stated.

      @Oicraftian I actually really enjoyed the tier 8. Worked really well for me. Accuracy wasn't amazing by any means but solid enough. Tier 9 on the other hand is a disgusting pile of trash.

  9. I got it done with the SU-100. Thanks guys! Shot 100% APCR and camped bush hard at least half the time.
  10. Played the Skorp yesterday. 10 losses in a row? The closest one was 5-15. Huh? Wtf?

    Tried tooning with a couple purples. 30% win rate. LOL. Is the WoT player base getting dumber and dumber?

      dude you spent way too much time on that but your point was made :doge:

      All in service of the true purples, is this blue.

       

      It is also something I plan to use elsewhere.

      And we appreciate the content. And effort.

    I've been watching some RU streamers. Pretty much all of them are using the AFE instead of food and are also running rammer, vents and optics, no vert stab. Apparently the stabilization is very good already without it.
  12. So WG NA decided to change the On-Track missions, for whatever reason. Now you need to acquire 25k xp within 24 hours in order to progress to various stages. FFS! Really? Why the fuck do this? What was wrong with how it was set up originally? Once again, fuck WG.

    1. NightmareMk9

      That has GOT to be a programming error.  I did see a bunch of people saying that the XP for missions was wiped when WG "Reset" the WZ on track a couple days go.

    2. DirtyACE7

      DirtyACE7

      It gets reset after 24 hours. So if let's say you've ground only 12k of 25k, then it gets reset and next day you have to grind out the same 25k again.

      WG just seems incapable of doing something without a screw up.

  13. Instead of letting players ban maps, WG should really have let players just choose the maps they want to play. There are simply too many shitty maps made without any real clue what good map design is. Like trying to fit a square peg into a round hole. It's not really possible, or at least it will require a ton of force, but hell, WG will keep trying.
  14. This tank makes me want to claw the skin off of my own face. WHAT A FUCKING PILE OF TRASH! I'm still like 100k from the tier 10 and am completely failing to get more than 45% win rate. From unbelievably bad gun (yes, great alpha at the cost of everything else) to the unbelievably bad teams I keep getting in it. I can't even count how many games I've ended up top damage and spotting just to lose something like 4-15 because the rest of the team are knuckle-dragging mouth-breathing trash.
  15. That is definitely one of the causes of my frustration. A lot of times even if I personally have a good game but lose, I'm really unhappy because it feels like I put in all this effort and got nothing out of it because the other 14 neanderthals can't tell their asses from their elbows.
