  1. 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.

  2. 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.

      @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!

  3. Did you get the tank? I wish ya did old friend!
  4. Controlling the speed is going to be important, because anything under 10kmh = in siege mode... at least they got turrets, hope they're stronk turrets, made of Thor's hammer material. Please don't have sh*t pen like the heavies... bet they're going to have sh*t pen like the heavies.
  5. Skipped buying 277, was hyped, but ppls telling me frontal shots = ammo rack (kinda of like 113 gettin shot in sides = ammo rack. If not ammo rack, can catch on fire. Play 5A instead. Took extra xp and went down the DeathStarII line, it's on sale! ^^
  6. When is the next patch? I ground out the convert exp for this tank this weekend and got cancer doing it. Also, got some fancy digi camo I could put on it now...
  7. =T I was looking forward to near medium tank gun handling... So... 5A is still king?
  8. Started playing my T-10 to grind the xp for it... T-10... why you no gun depression.
  9. You are correct, M--M merged with 5LINE IIRC. M-I-T is still going strong last time I heard! ^__^
  10. 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.

      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.

  11. I hate this tank with a passion... so much... ugh, congrats on 3 marking it. Considering just free xp'ing past this. Yeah the gun's nice, yeah, it has good camo, yeah it's small and has -10 degrees... idk, just not my play style.
  12. Is this one of thee longest standing clans NA? M--M still going!
  13. 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.

    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?

  15. Solono, hope you get better and everything turns out for the better. Eat well, ok? Steak money sent through via paypal (fire up that grill friend!).
  16. Is wotlabs chat gone?


    1. CraBeatOff


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

      But you gotta be zuper nice to Enroh.

  17. This mode pique's my interest. Will this create two different types of player base? Putting the rewards aside, if you think about it... there are race track drivers and rally racers. They both drive cars, but the way they drive them are completely different. Is WoT trying to distinguish us? Like WoW... There are hardcore PvP'ers and there are people who want to do the missions, raids, and general PvE stuff. I have seen this concept in other games... WG could make more Tier X reward vehicles, and do whatever they want in a separate mode, and it would be up to the player to dabble in that game-mode or not. Just like PvE vs PVP, in each other game mode, taking OP tanks & setup (kind of like armor/weapons) would be pretty much useless? I.e. if you had "super equipment" all lined up and ready to go in your T57 and your a hardcore ranked player, if you come do regular random battles (pubs), your equipment would be equal to just regular equipment, which everyone has. If they made it this way, I could see people who are bored of kicking puppies (seal clubbers), try out the new game mode... Also, what does this do for re-rolls? Does the blues and purples want to fight with blues and purples only? Exclusively? I think there would be a reduction in re-rolls, or, original accounts coming back and being played more? Either way I think it's a dumb concept for a person to have to grind/spend massive hours on playing the new whatever-the-developers-came-out-with, to stay competitive. If they need to make more money, they need to make some more damn new maps. Add a line, add a few premiums here and there. If you're going to go game-mode, make it specifically, for that game-mode IMHO. Please, use your brains when making and implementing sh*t, not just throw garbage at us, and let us "figure it out", throw us a bone will ya WG? Learn from your mistakes?
  18. They butchered the USA voice. So bad, so so so so bad. I think the Chinese one is like a 12 year old girl (I speak it). Japanese sounds like an anime character 100% It would feel like I'm playing Girls und Panzer in my STB-1. Swedes... poor them. Czech is pretty scary, I thought the guys talked a lot... holy moley. The best ones are... UK, French and German. Russia's is pretty good too. If I had my choice, I would get... 4x Japanese (into STB-1), 3x French (Batchat), 4x German (Leo 1), or grind one more, for 5x in (50M). I put 4x Chinese into the 113, I'm regretting it. I love the 113, but I wish I got Japanese females for them, for the STB-1 instead of the 113. They were originally in my 121, but -3.5 gun depression gets old, really fast. Although, the UK sounds nice, Action X just isn't my type of tank. Maybe throw them into a FV215b? USA, if the voice was better, I'd consider for a T57, not 100% sure. USA is really, just that bad IMHO.
  19. Reshiki farmed me in his, dat bastard *sigh.
  20. @TanagerI'm out of upboats, but thanks to your fam in the Pacific. I hope it was entertaining, I hope my pains is not your struggles. I have done so much stupid chit, I try to help others from making my mistake. Ask @SchnitzelTruck, he see's me derp out, and I swear he's just shaking his head silently at me. I too, was stuck where you were, trying which medium to get. Run AFE, just do it. Jumping into matches without it... yeah only 12% chance of fire, but if you lick the toilet seat at a pitstop in your closest major city, only 12% chance of getting aids/cancer/gonorrhea/syphilis/chlamydia too, so.... just carry it.
  21. I honestly didn't think I had to run fire extinguisher, but... holy sh*t has it saved my ass so many times... ESPECIALLY in close brawls. Yes, you hide your right, but what happens when some random lowlife hobo fxck appears out of no where, who made a beeline zip to your location to try to kill you, when your trying to hunt down a clipped batchat? Yes, you kill the batchat, and then you turn your attention to get revenge on the stupid fxck who came to try and go after you, and is trying to track you and shoot your butt (say it's another French tank with a clip!). Secnario 1. No AFE? Probably get tracked/ammo racked, and your engine eventualy starts a fire. You get fuct. Roasty toasty fuct. Nothing you can do, except maybe try to ram your useless burning pile of sh*t tank now (since everything is broken, and don't want to spend 20k to repair everything, knowing you're dead in the next few seconds, and probably can't kill the French tank, since everyone and their mother is now shooting at you), into the enemy to get extra damages. Scenario 2. With AFE? GET-SOME-B*TCH, DINNERS ON, GET SOME.
  22. Yeah, you can always pick up the 140 afterwards. I play my T54 just like I play my T62A, since the shell velocity is sh*t. On, 1 pro tip. DO NOT, absolutely, DO NOT, show your right side of your RU MED's. I even put inscriptions on the right side, to remind myself DO NOT SHOW THIS SIDE TO ENEMY. You will get ammo racked and/or set on fire. I carry 2 repair kits, and an automatic fire extinguisher. Yes, it's THAT bad.
  23. I went for T62A. The 62A just feels more... like the T-54's bigger brother IMHO. Yes, the -5 dun depression is just meh, but you can shoot on the move, have a invincible turret, and it feels just more capable in a brawl. The 140 is no slouch either, I just find myself pew pew'ing more, moving, cover to cover in T62A, while in 140, I have to hold my shots and pew, until I get into cover. The 140 is slightly faster, and has better camo, and lower profile over all. The hatches are penn-able at close distance brawling. For the T62A, if you're going to go with -5 gun depression, there is the Obj 430... which gets higher dpm than both of these tanks, just less gun handling. Also, has even better camo, lolz. The snaps I have hit with my T62A.... man.... I love it. I get in peoples faces and can do knife fighting in it better than my 140, since I don't have 2 hatches to work with, and on the move accuracy is just so nice (although, I do let the gun settle when I can). If I could do it all over again, I would buy the 430, and be done. I like to pew pew on the run. If this sounds odd to you, get the 140. Hope this helps, sorry if it made it harder with the 430 comments.
  24. Sent you some monies (spared what I could), hope it helps brotha!
