    I was thinking about grinding up to the WZ-131-1, but I guess I'll just play the 132, and unlock the 9, and just stop there. 

    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.

  2. 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 was inspired by failure and disappointment. Tier 9 is supposed to be great though.

  3. 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.

    If it ever comes back to the shop (which I hope), is it worth getting?

    Also, how much was it?

    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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

    Trying to win every game will cause you more frustration than doing your best every game. There's a distinct difference between them and I don't like saying it but winrate is a large coinflip at tier 9 and 10 these days.

    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.

  9. @Kolni how do you deal with continuous turbo loses? I’m currently going through this while grinding the tier 9 Chinese light. It’s really not happening on any other tank, just this one. Every time I sit down to play, I simply start getting crazy land-slide loses game after game. I can’t even break past 45% win rate (usually I win 60%+ of my games). It’s just so demoralizing playing this thing and trying your best but getting constantly crapped on by the teams. It’s like, I cannot be everywhere at once, I can only influence the one area where I’m at, one engagement. I can’t make the idiot heavies do more than one shot of damage or get that T95 to actually push instead of camping on the red line. How do you deal with this kind of stuff? Do you simply keep going and only focus on your own gameplay, regardless what the end result of the match is going to be?

    Stanlock (RU), jaeckefa (EU), swift_m0ti0n aka barry (EU), Valheru (SEA) and Decha (EU) for good gameplay, jaeckefa plays with an aids aspect ratio but otherwise most of the streams are chill, i tend to mute and run my own music since i don't need mic commentary but Stanlock is VERY loud to watch, goddamn russians man

    short of daki during his tryhards i don't watch or like the bigger wot streamers at all

    I watch Stanlock too (native Russian speaker) but he is usually pretty calm and just plays his own music, although at times he'll go a bit ape-shit about something. I'd also suggest giving Geksi a watch, another RU streamer. He is someone who is more recent on the streamer scene and many don't know him but he is essentially going head-to-head with Stanlock for highest WN8 on RU server. Just an extremely talented player although can be a bit whiny at times when things are getting to him.

    Overall, thank you so much for making this thread. Puts things into a bit more perspective for me and my own approach to playing. A fantastic read!

    Also, as far as my own play. I notice a stark contrast between days when I’m totally even keel and days when something is just off. On those "even keel" days it's like I’m on neutral as far as emotions go. Neither positive nor negative. Almost like indifference but not quite. I guess this is what being “in the zone” feels like for me. Things come most naturally and effortlessly when I’m in that state and so I react logically and instinctively. My only issue to be able to re-create this kind of feeling every time I sit down to play. It’s my biggest downfall as a player.

    I have tried this tactics and was disgusted how little progress in the ranks I have received. Killing the turret entirely alone I have moved maybe one third of the rank (Sergeant to Lieutenant). It seems that focusing on enemy tanks and simply ignoring the objectives makes much more sense.

    Think of the Frontlines is just a shooting gallery. The more shots you make the more money, xp, and rewards you get. All the other garbage with the turrets especially is totally pointless, win or lose. It absolutely makes no difference. I would take a loss every single game as long as I was earning credits, xp and advancing through the tiers and ranks.

  12. I won't ever stop saying "fuck WG". No matter what happens. They fuck up this game every single patch with brainded near-sighted ideas. Like they are throwing shit randomly at a wall and seeing what sticks. You literally have to go through a bunch of failed attempts at creating something useful and beneficial to the game before you actually see something positive. There's a good Russian saying for this, "doing things through the ass". It's exactly what WG is and should just be their new motto. Fuck their developers, their programmers, their board of directors, their CEO. Just fuck the whole company for being the incompetent cancer that they are.

  13. They really should have just let us chose which maps we wanted to play on instead which we didn't because there are many shitty maps. I personally disabled Paris and Ensk, but can easily add Mines, Airfield, Himmelsdorf, Sigfried Line to them as well.

  14. I forget all the buffs but I think they did buff the gun handling a bit, DPM and also gave the engine more power. However, it is still a bad tank. It's huge with paper armor and a gun that does little damage per shot. There are so many other premium tier 8 tanks that are much better and I know FCM gets preferential match making but still, it's just a bad tank.

  15. Love the Standard B. One of those tanks that is super rewarding when played right but man do you really have to pay attention to what you're doing because it is so easy to get into trouble with it and it will let you without a second thought.
