  1. So, I have been trying to play a bit more seriously and focusing on primarily Tier X's, with the occasional "fun" tanks when I get frustrated (wheely bois/big gun TD's) or arty when I get sad. I have play 100% solo for the last month or so. My stats have started to go down and I wanted someone to look over the tanks I have played over the last 7 days (link here: https://wotlabs.net/na/player/Matross) and help me come up with 2, 3 or 4 tanks to focus on. Disclaimer: I did chase a "win" on the E50M for a handful of games, so that might have affected the wn8 by 200 or 300 points or so this wee
  2. 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.

      Trap set, trap sprung :epicsaxguy:

  3. The x5 daily XP helps out a lot on premium account. I finished the Maus, EBR 105 and STRV 103B. Which tank should I go down next? I figure the OBJ 268 v4 is the answer, but just wanted to throw up the E3 just in case, since it does get used in CW fairly often. Which should I grind next? E3 or v5? 1. T110E3 - Start at T28 (use free XP to start at tier VIII) - The T95 Doom turtle might be fun, E3 is used time to time for CW. - Not having a turret frustrates me, but... it actually gets armor... so... it kind of balances it out? - Seems like a situational tank, and so
  4. 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.

  5. I think if you're dumb enough to sit in front of it and let it wail on you, you'll get shredded in a few. If you are smart enough to drive around it (like the Tier 9 Tortoise), then... it's just a T8 XP pinata. I played through the AT15 and played a lot of AT15-A when I first started this game. The flat spot on the shoulder = weakness. Yeah the T8 doesn't have copulas, that's probably it's redeeming quality. Personally, I think the TS5 would be the better hulldown TD.
  6. Welcome back RNG! Just my $0.02. - Good lord I am bad! I used to comfortably sit around 3k+ and thought that most people should be able to. I thought I would be able to pick up where I left off after a few rusty games but that is definitely not the case. ===> Takes some time getting used to. Teams are a lot more passive and campy these days. - The meta is simultaneously much more passive and much more aggressive. By this I mean it feels like as a single player there are much fewer chances to make successful aggressive plays to change the outcome of the game or push the pace

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

      Looks like "Apocalypse now", so jungle camo.

  8. Holy moley, this tank is like... - 25% of the armor of the 430u (I want to give it less, but the sides can get freak bounces) - Pretty much the turret of a 140 (hello over matching top) - Gun handling of T62A (when stationary) As soon as people start throwing HEAT/high pen APCR... what armor? The -5 gun depression is noticeable, just like the T62A, but at least the T62A gets a better turret and great gun handling, even on the move. I'm wrecking the sh*tty stats that I have by playing the 907 -.-"
  9. Yeah man, the 907 eluded me back in that campaign, but was able to get it this campaign. I picked the 907 because the British heavy game play get's kind of boring imho. RU & Chinese heavy play is more fun for me. Yeah, the Chieftain is OP and what not, but meh. I figured I could get the 907 and participate with mediums for next CW's and I can always count on 277/5A/Super Conq to be picked for heavies when needed. I celebrated with my fiancee (she was a good sport and didn't get all grumpy about not spending time with her) with a nice steak dinner. She got a new job, so celebrating th
  10. 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.

  11. Been wanting this tank since 2014, finally participated in a campaign that offered it and will be getting it. It took me a few years and it's an old tank, but a new tank for me! I read through all the pages, few questions. 1) With lower fire % chance than the 140, do you really need a fire extinguisher? I can't remember the last time I caught fire in my RU med's really. 2) Gun rammer, vert stab, +optics or vents? (I plan on using food if no fires, also related to question below). 3) Does it really need 2 repair kits? Do you find yourself getting ammo racked as much?
  12. Just been grinding x5 bonus's on daily wins due to premium time. Gonna have to grind credits due to finishing up CW, maybe play some front lines to grind some more bonds or credits for other rewards ^_^ I'll hit ya up if I see you online!
  13. @simba90 EYooooooo how you been?! Long time no see~
  14. Is there any rankings for clans in previous CW campaigns? Just checking~

  15. Who's coming to the party? Are we gathering up the old crew?
  16. How much ammo in the Manticore??? Looks like a funky tank, almost thought it was an autoloader.
  17. Yeah, didn't see the total DPM, 2.3k for a Tier 9 is a bit low.
  18. 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

  19. Better turret than E50? Hrmmm... it does sacrifice alpha, but the reload looks nice. Dispersion could be a bit wonky.
  20. Dang... for all the people grinding FL, this does look like a dank reward.
  21. Reach out to a recruiter in game, they're a good training clan, they should be doing stronks~
  22. Unlocked it, finished up my WZ-132 grind. I wish I had a higher win rate in it, but I got a streak of bad teams (the teams that has 2-4 players with 0 damage rofl stomps). The WZ-132 gun accuracy is pretty bad, but I still made it work, my WN8 on it over the past few days wasn't bad. Gonna try a few more games in in the WZ-132A. The first game I played in it, the gun is pretty much like the WZ-132... just now... it see's tier 10's more often. I wish I had a better turret than the tier 8. Now, I have all the Tier 9 tanks, muahahaha.
