  1. Is E50M especially bad for the meta or something, or am I just playing it wrong? I can't figure out... Push with heavies, get penned by all the enemy heavies/sniped by back lineTD's. Run with the mediums, get spotted first, eat shots/snipped by TD's. 

    Does it just not compete with the meta these days? The reload seems a bit low, gun can be random at times,.Seems like I always die before 1/2 the battle is over. Does this tank need camo? Running Rammer, VSTAB & Vents + food.

  2. Thanks to the x5 XP weekend, I didn't even have to touch the Tier 6-9 wheely boi's. Just straight up free XP'd to the EBR 105. Bought the FL T8, and took a 3 skill crew from my AMX 30. These wheely boi's are fun to drive. Hilarious when you get hit for 0 damage and your wheel is the only thing that's damaged. Pretty much makes other single shot light tanks obsolete imho.

      I concur, not good for the game, but it is fun to drive. It should make camping harder, but I think it makes people camp even more.

      how much gold do you need to free exp to tier 10?


    4. Matross


      @westybig I cannot recall 100% accuracy, but I think I needed like... 9k gold was it? I had about 100k? 120k? saved up already. I had tons of gold left from the loot boxes during Christmas, so I have been using that gold to use for convert XP to skip sh*tty tanks in the lines I wanted to go after. I can say... I don't regret my decision, at all. The EBR 105 is completely retarded in WoT, but it sure is hella fun to play. If you don't have the xp/gold, I suggest stopping at the 9 and playing that till you get to the 10, because... playing the 10 and dying quickly = nukes your wn8.

  3. "On August 15, 1979, one of the greatest war movies ever made was released; 40 years later it's still a masterpiece. To celebrate this cinema hallmark, we have a +50% XP Weekend and missions where you can earn a special style!"

    What special style is this? Anyone have leaks of the camo style?

    1. orzel286


      Looks like "Apocalypse now", so jungle camo.

  4. I think I need to platoon up with some people and play slower. After nothing but CW battles, I'm playing pubs as if it was a CW battle. I find myself depending on my team when I deploy and realize I over committed way too early and donk out after only firing a few shots.

  5. Is there any rankings for clans in previous CW campaigns? Just checking~

  6. Started the STRV-103B grind. Unlocked the Udes 03... need to get the top gun and engine.. td's are so gimmicky, very map dependent =T

    Makes me wonder if I should have went for the SU-101 up the OBJ 268v4 line first =T

  7. So... in the EBR 105 line, which wheely boi's are the stinkers? I read the T6 is pretty bad. Use convert XP to start at the EBR Hotch (Tier 7)? Lynx (Tier 8)? Straight to the EBR 90 (Tier 9?)

      The WZ-132 is fantastic, however, the tier 9 is a pile of vile trash mainly because the developers in all their wisdom decided the tank should have gun handling that of a tier 6 Soviet heavy. It's pretty absurd. I could not break past 47% win rate on that shit bucket.

    3. Matross


      I'll try playing the WZ-132-A, and see how it performs, compared to my other Tier 9 lights. I remember the RU251 being zippy, but slow shell velocity, and it being really big. The 1390 is nice, T54-LWT was great, T49... well, it's T49. 

    4. DirtyACE7


      1390, T-54ltwt and T49 are in on a different level to the WZ. Those tanks actually belong in tier 9 and the WZ belongs in tier 7.

  8. Finished my Maus grind, started playing light tanks again. WZ-132... why is your gun dispersion so bad... *sigh, I wonder if the RhmPz is the better route (already have the T100 and the Sheridan). Hmmm...

      the RHM pzw is horrid 

    3. Matross


      Yeah I read about it, and how useless it is in the current game because it's meant to be played as a long range support tank? Why do you think it's so horrid? @Deus__Ex__Machina the no armor w/ low pen? 

  9. So I started the VK100.01P grind fully upgraded. On premium account, I got the 5x x3 XP per daily win, and added the +x2 XP additional experience. Already at about 60k exp in. This grind is going pretty fast, I should have the Mauschen unlocked & fully upgraded by the end of the weekend.

      Even gold can have issues with penning it. It honestly feels like a tier 9 tank that's one tier lower.

    3. Matross


      18 battles, 55.56% win rate, 2,038 average damage... 2,613 wn8 so far. I should be finishing up this grind tomorrow... the x5 xp + the x2 additional XP from premium time, with boosters, plus the additional 50% xp booster this weekend... I'm flying through the VK100.01P.  I think I might keep the tank for a while, just in case I need it for missions or something later.

      Oh, and FK arty.

    4. Kymrel


      You need to hit the cupola dead on, usually with gold unless you have 250ish+ pen on standard rounds. Even a perfect hit still has to go through 220mm of armor. It can bully as top tier but in tier 10 games, and games that are over in 3 minutes, it sucks pretty hard.

  10. Is the T-44-100 worth the $50  bucks, if you have the the T-54 Proto already? Yeah, it's a better tank (when not taking into account of armor), and yes, it's still better than the regular T-44, but the slight difference in accuracy/terrain resistance worth it?

    2. LamaLeif


      I would say no, they are too similar to be worth the 50 bucks when you already have one of them.

    3. WhatTheSkara


      What Lama said.

      Also having enough armour to force tier 8s and some tier 9s to load gold is good in this autistic meta.

    4. Matross


      Thanks guys, I think I'm going to skip the paper RU med, and skip it. Save the money for something else!

  11. Done did it!!! After watching a few games of people being a boss in the E4, finished T-55 TD15 (albeit, without Honors, which I will chase). 6,313 damage, 2 kills on Westfield, which I call the Harry Potter map (train, castle in the top left, looks like Hogsmeade village). 3/3 females in the Kranv & Udes 16. WEeeeeee

  12. Slipped and missed the T55 TD15 mission again. Had 5.6k damage in the ISU-152, starring down a full health T54E1, less than 100m away, fully aimed, waited a second, exhaled, and shot... straight to dirt, got spotted, 3 shotted, and died. 2nd time I botched this mission. I hate myself.

      at least you didn't complete it, only to realise afterwards that you'd forgotten you'd changed missions while grinding some t7 thing and forgotten to return. 


    3. WhatTheSkara


      Got it easy in the old t10 263.

      I guess now strv is the way. Or bobject because it's balanced.

    4. Matross


      Seriously, I would have to hate to start the bobject grind, ffs, I have to start at SU-100. FML.

      I played a handful of games, in Tier 10 TD's yesterday trying to grind the mission, 13xx wn8, and 50/50 win to loss ratio... rip. 

      I noticed the games I play in big alpha TD's, it's littered with other TD's (JPZE100's, and FV215b 183's). Got close with a JPZE100 game, with 5.8k damage, but not 4 kills so... idk. The first time I almost completed it, I was in a good game with my T30, with 5 kills, 5.8k damage, with a 400 HP progetto 65 left 1v1. I donked the last shot, which should have killed him. The shell went into a building (I'm blaming server lag), while dancing around a building, him circling me, with me trying to turn fast enough. My heart was racing so fast. It still haunts me to this day.

      I hate playing with sh*t crew in my TD's. The only TD's I have more than 3 crew skills with is my JPZE100 and Grille, but I can't get my Grille to work to save the life of me. As soon as I fire in my Grille, I get spotted, then focused/swarmed *sigh. Every time I play my JPZE100, it seems arties have a spergasm and just want to nuke the JPZ. Arty shots for 300-400 damage hurts, even if you don't get directly hit, and you have to repair crew (since aim goes to sh*t), and tracked/something broken, and you're starring down your target.

      I just want 1 more female Swedish Crew, so I can have 6. 3 for my Kran, and 3 for the new UDES medium... *sigh.


      @FavreFan4ever Man... I can't imagine having to try it with a Foch. I have to channel my inner peace and not play so aggressively I feel in 750 alpha TD's, and get swarmed + arty focused.

  13. What is up with the teams... it feels like my teams just want to lose. So man 0 damage players... even if I am top damage, game, after game, i'm stuck with the team with 3-4 0 damage players.

  14. I want to see the Tier 8 buffs on the medium lines. Leo and AMX looks fun.

    1. sohojacques


      And WG hate LTs. They released a whole new vehicle class (wheeled vehicles) just to fuck them. So I doubt 12t or HWK will get any love. Indien Panzer might though. 

  15. Is the E4 even worth getting? I have the free xp for it, and next month it's going on sale for "on track", don't feel like playing T30 for another 100k xp.

      its not even a grind, I bought the t30 and i enjoyed blooping 800's into random tanks with apcr, the trade is the best part. this was the last tank i played before i quit with 83% wr

      E4s are poor man's version of the E-100. Sure you get high pen, but you also lose out on everything else.

      And the 100 itself is a poor man's 60TP

  16. Finally ground out the x5 wins from the KJPZ105 and the 50TP Proto. Almost got my Tier 8 Italian tank fully upgraded. The gun on the KJPZ105 is godmode, the terrainresistance is also godmode, and the speed is really nice. Fun tank, too bad it doesn't have a turret. 50TP proto is trash.

  17. Back at it again. So rusty, how do you even play this game. To work up the Italian line (at Tier 6), build up xp for the new Swede med's (Leo), or just get back into it playing 10's. Gave up trying to farm xp w/ premium 8's.

      I always knew you two were bad influences on me! I won't have consistent time until May, but you two playing tanks again might convince me to give it one more go for my French technical engineer badge.

    3. DirtyACE7


      @Matross to be honest, I have no idea who Fancyphil is. Did he go by a different ign before?

      I actually didn't play Frontline in its first iteration. Just didn't feel interested but decided to try this time around. It's pretty enjoyable and relaxed as the result doesn't really matter in the overall scheme of things. Just leveling up to get better prizes and grinding silver, which accumulates fast. And it is just tier 8s, which makes playing them fun again. You actually feel like you can do things instead of being xp pinatas for tiers 9 and 10, 90% of the time.

      @FavreFan4ever come join in whenever you have a chance!

    4. Enroh


      heh seems like a few of us regressed...i just got back into tanks as well after 6 months out and my aim is bad too...my consistency is poor atm and having to learn all the new maps and where all the fake bushes are (so many now) - i swear they broke spotting in 1.4 or w/e aids version we are on now

  18. My god... the teams tonight, some were ok, out of like 8 games I played, 3? were ok, 3 were 100% lemming trains, and 2 were salvageable, but I was in a E100. Every single map... wrong tanks... so aggravating this game sometimes. First time today, 5/5 shells either completely miss, or dirt. Just got the stream back up and running too.

    1. SchnitzelTruck


      sorry for being a bitch to you :(

      Messaged me right after I got hit by 3 tier10 arty in my LT in the first minute of the game.

  19. Finally, I'm starting to get it. Create opportunities = not only damage farm for yourself, but also some scavengers that are roaming the map, and at the right time and right place. It's a completely different mindset between being a teal sh*tter and a real unicum. I think i'm starting to get a taste.

    1. Fulcrous


      A lot of it is simply "opening up" the map by taking key targets/points after an initial setup.

    2. DirtyACE7


      There you go Mat. Never too late to learn and improve.

      We need to toon again soon.

    3. Matross


      @Fulcrous EXACTLY!!!! When I was grinding the 5A, playing the WZ, one of my unicum friends told me... just take it to the medium flank and run with the mediums... I thought it was dumb... but... after doing that so many games and farming other mediums... I figured... this is risky, and this is total yolo fail... but if you pick a tangent line to the mediums firing lanes... you create opportunities because the red tanks come to you! Me being the "heavy" player and knowing angles and used to being over run... If I manage to live through more than 4 volley's... its GG. Helping mediums with heaviums goes a LONG way. Also, come clean up time... at end game, you can totally just boss people around with 490 alpha. This game is basically like trigonometry for the first 3 mins of the match.

  20. KakaoTalk_20170730_005051284_zps2nez1kh9

    Don't buy the STRV S1. It has 0 gun arc. Playing mostly 10's, mixing some 9's these days. Will join unicum status soon.

    1. DirtyACE7


      I wasn't planning to buy it actually. Swedish TDs really don't appeal to me and should be nerfed to hell imho, especially the tier 9 and 10.

      So how have you been man? Haven't seen you around in a while. Have you been taking a break from the game?

  21. Is wotlabs chat gone?


    1. CraBeatOff


      Yes, patched out of the forum software. There is now a discord

    2. hallo1994


      But you gotta be zuper nice to Enroh.

  22. I need a "fxck off" button to hit, when I get arty focused. I'm fekking green... not even blue... why me. Why me?! Shoot the Tier X E100, not the 113! (The game I got hit 9 times by arty, 3 other shots missed, still got stunned, we won dou...).

    3. Driftin


      While that is annoying, the fact that you were still alive to get hit 7-8 more times is still better. You would have been dead and raging in the 1st or 2nd shot. Being focused over and over by anybody, not just arty is annoying, but it's the price you pay some days.

      Shtahp kemping noob

  23. Done arguing with sh*tter pubbies that are sub 50% win rate, sub 1.2k wn8 on WoT forums (regular forums). There's just no point. Be a basic b*tch, settle for mediocrity, be the passive-aggressive retarded camping TD. I bought my T92. Freedom Packages, incoming.

  25. Done playing on East, at least, until lag issues are fixed. I swear, 1/2 the players on west are bots, some of the teams... 0.0
