  1. Best 183 equipment these days? I'm thinking IRM rammer vents

  2. Chieftain/T95 (T8) or IS-5 for the tier 8 campain tank?

      but you should never buy it for bonds. 

      T8 Chief is shit and so is IS5. But the medium has this horrible weakspot ontop which makes it even shittier. 

      Therefor I went for the IS5. I wont ever driving it. But at least I have it inthe garage.

      IS-5 is also a hilariously sadistic mark to try for all skill levels, 1st through 3rd are all insanely hard considering the tank's gun

      Not to say the T95Chief mark is any less of that (I still haven't been able to do this one after completing it on basically release day), but at least you can play that tank without feeling like handicapping your team by picking it - this tank didn't have premium credits unlike the IS-5 when it was released however (not sure about the situation now)

  3. What's the consensus best EBR 105 equipment? I'm running CVS Optics Vents for a scout build.

      I would probably give the edge to LNES for EBR after giving it some thought, as you will mostly be playing the EBR as an active scout, and therefore you benefit quite a bit from the 8% camo bonus.

      If you were playing a normal light tank, having any more than 42% camo wouldn't make much of a difference, as you would be using bushes a lot more, compared to EBR.

      I think Prokh is the only map where CVS would be objectively better than LNES.

      CVS? Edit: nevermind found it on tanks.gg

      Thanks my dudes

  4. The HE would be nice, except it's almost impossible to use unless you have it preloaded because you would have to reload your entire magazine and loading a single shell takes almost 20 seconds. Expect to see some shitters spamming full HE out of this though.
  5. This thing is just awful, full stop. Extremely poor damage output, 4s interclip, horrible on the move dispersion. The armor and mobility are actually okay, -10 gun depression and decentish turret armor with some noticeable weakspots. the standard 268 pen 1400m/s APCR is nice, but the 325 pen HEAT has potato shell velocity (756m/s). The problem is this thing just cannot deal damage quickly enough. The absurd reload times are not worth having an autoreloader, as unlike the spaghetti mediums, the tank isn't flexible.

    ST-II

    I expected the IS-3-II to be the highlight of the line based on the test server when these were released. I was wrong, the IS-2-II is by far the best vehicle in the line. it's mobile, and most importantly the dual 100mm guns are fantastic. the IS-3-II isn't bad but it's also not good. the ST-II is gigatrash. Especially now that the IS-4 got buffed, but the ST-II didn't.
  7. Final 1.10.1 Changes Implemented Today: Changes to the technical characteristics of the following vehicles: Germany Panther mit 8,8 cm L / 71 Replaced the 8,8 cm Kw.K. 43 L / 71 gun with the 8.8 cm Kw.K. 43 L / 71 mod.Vlt. Compared to the previous gun, only shell damage changed from 240/240/295 to 280/280/370 HP E 50 Changed the reload time of the 8,8 cm Kw.K. L / 100 gun in the E 50 Ausf. B turret from 5 to 6 s Improved the armoring of both turrets Changed the penetration value of the PzGr 39 G shell for the 10,5 cm Kw.K. L / 52 Ausf. B gun from 22
  8. They look great, assuming the real-world benchmarks are at least close to the performance numbers. 19% IPC increase, 8-core chiplet modules instead of 4-core modules for improved latency which is probably the biggest difference for gaming.
  9. WG gives it absurd stats but then a 16s reload to "balance" it out. is gud balance da
  10. 3080 is 40-60% faster than 2080, and 20-30% faster than 2080 ti. Nice gains but not earth shattering.
  11. People forget that the 2080 Ti was absurdly overpriced in the first place. The 980 Ti was $649 on launch and the 1080 ti was $699. This is finally bringing prices down to where they should be for that performance level. Now people think it's a fantastic deal, even though it's what it should be.
  12. I heard each core ALU has double FP performance so Nvidia just multiplied the real CUDA core count by 2. So to get the old CUDA core count divide by 2. This makes sense as to why all the cards have seemingly ridiculous amounts of CUDA cores: the core counts aren't equivalent. They're still gonna be fast as fuck, but I'll believe the claimed performance when I see it. Saying "Oh it's x % faster" when your benchmarks are using Raytracing and DLSS is bullshit, because the new cards have faster and more plentiful RT cores and tensor cores, so it's a meaningless comparison.
  13. I'm 6 out of 9 for wins in solo Steel Hunter atm, very enjoyable mode.

  14. Tman's Guide to Steel Butthole Hunter:

    1.) Play french tank

    2.) drive around the map collecting everything possible, upgrading, being an opportunist

    3.) go radio recharge, top speed, autoloader, mobility/hp, mobility, and antitank machine gun

    4.) Win

  15. supposed to be Unconventional Strig, not completely truefax
  16. and the ISU was at one time the highest damage non-artillery in the game at 750 alpha. it should've stayed that way. then we got 850 damage TD's, 750 damage heavies, 1000+ damage TD's etc.
  17. High alpha guns, especially high alpha TD's were a mistake.
  18. Ok Here's my 2020 Steel Hunter Guide:

    1.) play french tank

    2.) zoom around map picking up everything and killing weak opponents

    3.) Go radio recharge, top speed, autoloader, mobility/hp, mobility, pewpew gun

    congrats you win

    by doing this you should have 420 consumables and 999 ammo, so just drop everything on enemies at the end.

      Ruskie not better? Armor is not needed? Especially for the final 1 vs 1?

    2. Tman450

      Russian and German are OP in the beginning due to having fuck you armor, but the new map is so big that mobility is huge. Also, i don't see many of the armor builds making it to the end because they're so slow and easily killed.

    3. Tman450

      Tman450

      Oh also Russians get this absurd mine skill that blankets the area with mines that permatrack and stun you as well as dealing 200-400 damage. So russian tank is close second.

  19. The wheel damage thing is how they should have been day 1.

    ST-II

    I ground through the 8 and 9, I thought the 9 was going to be the best, and I still like it, but now I think the tier 8 is the best in the line. the right mix of mobility and gun. The 100mm i found really good. The ST-II is gigatrash. It's basically an IS-4 with 2 barrels. Memeing on people with the double barrel is the only highlight.
