  1. Wait the new german premium has 490 alpha at tier 8?

    REEEEEEEEEEEEE

    Uff WG just stop plz

    1. Matross

      Matross

      490 does sound like a lot, yeah. Even the 440 alpha on the Defender seems a lot sometimes.

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

    1. Matross

      Matross

      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. 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.

      @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.

      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.

  6. So, it's been a while since I last visited this site.  Is the game any better with the recent update?

    1. Matross

      Matross

      Oh, also there are new Swedish mediums out w/ automatic hydraulic suspension (don't need to press "X") for extra gun depression, and STB-1 also got gun depression. Leo 1 line got lots of buffs. IDK if you quit before the 430U became Tier X, but the 430U didn't get nerfed, so it's OP. OBJ 268 V4 is still OP as well.

      Yes and no. Watch out for wheelie boii's. Arty did get nerfed, they fire more often, but not nearly as much 1 shots or like shots that take off 800 HP if you're in a medium or heavy.

  9. 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?)

     

    1. Matross

      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.

      I'm at about 90k xp into the WZ-132, I should probably unlock the Tier 9 this weekend. I plan on unlocking it, but not buying buying it. Talk about a wn8 padder... never knew playing the 132 would give me such good wn8 results. I'm starting to enjoy the mobility and camo value when running around. Hope I'm not building bad habits from it. 

      I see that the Tier 8 isn't anything special on the wheely bois. I have about 180k convert XP saved, I'll probably just keep grinding some free XP, to unlock the 9 and start there, or just move onto another grind (Probably STRV 103B or the OBJ 268v4).

  11. Thoughts on Leo 1, Leo Pta and STB now they're on the liver server? Thinking about buying back one of the first two, and maybe taking the STB out for a spin after not playing it for years.

    1. Matross

      Matross

      I was wondering the same thing. I have both tanks in my garage, thinking about taking them out for a spin later tonight. I'm wondering how the PTA and the Type 61 feel too.

      I did like the Mutz a while back, I think I might take it out for a spin later this weekend too.

  12. 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...

    1. Matross

      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?

      I should probably finish my grind on the 1390 first, and then get crackn' on the EBR. Since I have all the Tier 9 lights, except the WZ-132, i'll just keep playing it to get to the tier 9, and then start playing my 1390 I guess, and spend some convert XP to start on a better tank in the EBR line.

  14. Please talk me out of buying the AMX M4 54 when now that it's on-track. Is it viable at all with the 130mm? Gold pen seems kinda low but 560 alpha on a French tank... :frenchy:

      You were always into weird hipster French tonks, finish the collection.

      If you have left over, you can always convert to crew xp!

  16. 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.

    1. Matross

      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.

      I do find it funny when they bounce left and right, and have no idea how strong the cupola is. I try to wiggle/move back and forth, while turning my turret when they start firing gold at me. I just wish it had more pen when bottom tier, and some more HP. I do notice the 440 alpha is nice when finishing off other tier 8 tanks though. It's like they aren't aware of my alpha when they have like 300 some HP left, and they try to face hug me.

  18. 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?

    1. Matross

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

  20. Jewdes 16 is cancer.

    Another free exp sink.

    At first to get it upgraded.

    Then to skip the 200k exp pain and get the tier 10.

      I just played it to get used to the hydraulic system. Used the x3 bonus on it for a handful of games to rack up xp. Free xp'd the last 50k or so. The gun is trolly at times. Tier X feels much more sturdier, and the bigger alpha rolls feel nice.

  21. 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.

      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.

      I play a few games, and log off, not worth the stress. 

      I'm on the Tier 9 Italian line. Feels like mini STB, the gun sometimes... goes random a** places. Feels like recital never closes in, so need to get close. But... no armor, and you get targeted pretty fast, because... auto loader.

      Hey man, at least some snipey tanks are getting buffs. I know you like them snipey tanks.
