    Tman450 got a reaction from j_galt in China - meds or lights?   
    The tier 7 and 8 lights are far better than the mediums, but the tier 9 and 10 meds are better than lights.
    Sure the WZ-120 and 121 have been very powercreeped, but they still work better than light tanks for dealing damage.

    Are you guys going to just argue about skill and which tanks are the best or are you going to actually contribute to the elimination?

    Weelll the good thing seems to be that you can yolo the base and rush arty with ease. I'd be fun to kill the scumbags after the first minut of the game.

    Tman450 reacted to Never in Bunch o' Fixes (Error 78 and Site)   
    Hello!
    Fixed a bug that prevented tanks from being recorded to an account if there was no tank WN data available (normal in the case of new tanks where the XVM guys haven't added it yet). Fixed a bug in the forum where a database issue caused some threads to show a "78", "77" or "80" error. Edit: More fixes
    Fixed issue where Patrons would see ads on the website. Fixed issue related to adding new accounts on the Russian server. Added GPDR cookie notice to website. Bunch of random, mostly cosmetic fixes.

    Tman450 reacted to Never in Major Server Migration Completed   
    Mostly a combination of depression caused by losing my routine after graduating college and massive burnout from pretty much everything. There was a (very) long span of time where I was actively scared of opening the forums and seeing things were broken and I dreaded having to fix them. I felt so done with everything that my brain just shut everything out that had the slightest semblance of responsibility. Sorry
    My ragazzi is way overdue for a good grazi'ing.

    Tman450 reacted to Never in Major Server Migration Completed   
    Hello!
    As many of you probably saw, we had a big server migration recently. Here's the low down of what happened:
    As I have disclosed in a couple of posts, the database server ran into an issue where it ran completely out of space. The biggest problem was that the database engine we were using kept all the data in a single file, and that file could never be shrunk even if you deleted older records. This caused that file to grow bigger and bigger and bigger over time, until it took up all of the considerable space on that server (1.5TB). When there was no more space left, the database server would crash and the website would go down.
    Fortunately, I managed to work with DigitalOcean to secure a great virtual server which meets all the needs of the database and the website in a single server. This is a 12-core, 48GB RAM server with 1TB of SSD space. The next step was transferring all the data over. This took the longest time. All in all, the database totalled around 5 billion records, and after removing the inflated space from the database engine, clocked in at around 500GB.
    It took 3 days to transfer and import all the records into the new server, which now runs the latest versions of PHP and MySQL for better performance, plus it lets me clean up old records that aren't used anymore in order to reduce disk space, meaning there will always be space available.
    Not only that, but as the website and the database are now on the same server, there is no more issue with the firewall tables getting reset, a problem which, despite a LOT of research, I couldn't actually fix. This was one of the biggest causes of the downtime in the past, as the database server started refusing connections from the website server at random.
    All in all, you can expect WoTLabs to be MUCH more stable from now on.
    Thanks everyone for all the support!

    Cancer fighting cancer as I see it.
    Both sides are ruining the game in different way, on the left side we have mentally 3-year olds who have no problem shooting both themselves and their teammates in the foot for a false sense of moral superiority while elevating the toxicity in the game to a whole new level while the other side ruins the game for everyone as WG to this day is still unable to introduce a mechanic that isn't completly braindead to use and completly infuriating to play against.
    The left side can be fixed by simply banning them from the game and the right side can be fixed by actually hiring some guys that actually care about the game instead of mastrubating during work hours, knowing WG neither of those things are going to happen.
    Luckily for everyone there is always the 3rd option called "Just play a different fucking game"

    I agree, the maps are absolutely the worst part of the game right now.
    The powercreep is bullshit, but it always has been. artillery is bullshit, but always has been and is less retarded than before.
    But I was playing the game, and I realized that I fucking hated every map except for like 2. Every time I get a map I say to myself "oh god, not this fucking map again"- except I say this for almost every map. The maps punish you for playing.

    3-5-7 combined with shit balance, increasing power difference between the tiers is a problem, and if there is something that will make me leave the game, its that. Arty is cancer but its always been there and unless it becomes somehow worse (which wont happen cus arty was so much worse in 2013 and earlier) it wont be the main reason to kick me out of the game. I want to highlight a recent big issue - the maps. These days, the maps are overall FUCKING AWFUL.
    This game always has bad maps, but 1.0 made it MUCH worse - Almost every map just got worse. There are actually just a few, literally a few maps that are kinda consistently enjoyable (and even then, you could get cucked if you play certain tanks - two some of the best maps in the game IMO - Redshire and Himmelsdorf, can both cuck you, Redshire north spawn is aids for non-fast heavies and Himmels is bad for paper TDs and LTs that lack good firepower, tho every map should not be completely equal for every tank class).
    Here is a few of poor map designs:
    - maps that are basically a corridor simulator (mountain pass, abbey)
    - maps that are technically not too awful otherwise but becomes a shitfest the moment it has too many arties (prokho, sand river, steppes)
    - maps that are clearly unbalanced (mines, live oaks)
    - maps that are overly campy (malinovka standard, prok with a lot of arties, erlenberg (lol still a campfest, but hey, its different now so is fine!))
    - maps that heavily favor one class and puts some of them at disadvantage (a lot of the maps, but Paris is a good example because anything that isnt a heavy sucks here)
    The worst maps, that I would to call ”the craptastic four” are combination of those traits mentioned earlier. Its fucking insane how these maps even got into the game. I almost want to legit kms when I get one of these maps. Here we go:
    - Fishermans Bay AKA Shittermans Gay: Such a joke, used to be alright but now its fucking terrible. City is even harder to reach and push without dying, 1-2 line is also harder to push without dying. Everyone just go middle and its literally abusing a hugeass lane of bushes. The moment someone spots you from an awkward angle, you’re screwed. It’s super campy, its super boring and unfun to play, and it becomes twice as bad with arties. Oh yes.
    - Glacier AKA Gaycier: This map is hilarious. You got the north flank, that is fucking garbage - if someone goes to middle, you get spotted and there is legitimately no way to avoid it and get shot at if you play a heavy and try to go to north. Not just that, you cant push from north because of the campers. So north is trash, just trash. South takes forever to reach and push, middle is a clusterfuck with zero arty cover whatsoever, the aircraft carrier makes things even more retarded. It results in a super poorly made campfest map with limited possibilities to push and you get shit on by arty 24/7. Its fun only when ur playing a tank that is fast, has turret armor, has gun depression and when there isnt a single arty and next to no TDs. And like thats never gonna happen.
    - Province: This map can go fuck itself and everyone who designed it can also go fuck themselves. Its absolutely horribly designed in every metric. Everything about it is bad - its campy AND corridory, its hard to push and do anything, capping is completely impossible, arties can shit on retarded spots where they shouldnt be able, both spawns have most retarded superbushes where you can hide anything reliably so pushing is impossible there, and its unbalanced. More often than not it lasts more than 13 minutes. Woohoo.
    - Fjords. Its unbalanced as fuck, even after the changes. Its super poorly designed. Its unfun with pretty much anything. Its either a super awkward corridor where arta can shit on (only place where it can even do anything, and that is when it positions correctly), a risky area in the middle that works from the better spawn anyway and a crossfire camp hell at the north. It has every shittyness mashed into one deformed abomination puked by a crayon eating mongoloid into a napkin. The only good thing about it is that it looks really beautiful aestethically.
    I personally get so triggered about the maps sometimes. If they keep introducing maps like the 4 I mentioned, I can see myself quitting the game sooner than I would expect. That and 3-5-7 is really fucking awful and at this point should be just reverted into old one with a few good thing taken like classes being matched against each other, arta platoons removed and limited to 3.
    Man I love this game, it would have such a fucking huge potential but the devs are retarded ;__;

    The op new tanks was the final straw for me. Like don't get me wrong the Super conq was pretty bs when it came out but was fun to play I guess. Final straw for me was when the 268v4 came and out turned into the yolo you tank of choice and WG started contemplating buffing the fucking thing. Throw in all the P2W prems like the Defender, Patriot, Skorp G, etc and it's been fairly unpleasant to say the least. The arty changes were meh, at least you don't get oneshot anymore. However they really should have kept it so that they can't platoon with anyone, fuck em; if you wanna be cancer... do it by yourself. Haven't played since January and still don't plan on touching the game again.
