    the SR80's are one of the best sets you can get under $100, good job. heavy on the mids, but that's fine for gaming

    What headphones would you suggest?  I'm not very knowledgeable in this area.
    Edit:  Just ordered the Modmic and a pair of Grado SR80e Prestige Series Headphones.  Really good reviews on the Grado's, hope they sound just as good as I see in the reviews.

    Tman450 reacted to N3RV3 in New Wotlab's user.   
    Greetings Wotlabs Community.
     
    Some of you may know me from the normal World of Tanks Forums, but since I am very new here I will introduce myself as N3RV3, also known as "The Captain". My main purpose of joining the Wotlabs forums is I heard that I could actually gain more knowledge than what I already know here. Please, I am not a superb player so don't expect much of me.
     
    Thank you for having me here. If you have any questions (anything besides arty) then feel free to ask.
     
    N3RV3 <o

    It's obvious you idiot, all the devs are cheaters and all the top clans are cheaters so they try to protect each other. I told you they're colluding with each other. This is just the tip of the iceberg. Don't even get me started on the MM rigging...

    Tman450 reacted to Deusmortis in 4 Years of WoTLabs   
    Probably a few different stories, from different perspectives.  Here's mine:
     
    The roots go back to the official forums.  There were a brave few on that forum who believed in the triumph of logic and reason over pubbiedumb.  We carefully crafted arguments and examples, trying to show people that a single player can make a difference on a team of 15.  That winning isn't simply a matter of getting a good team, or platooning, or hacking, etc.  And, maybe, to show that "play for fun" and "play to win" were not mutually exclusive.  
    There were guides, videos, statistical analysis, etc.  Sometimes, a bit got through.  More often, good posts would be buried in the red sea.  Masses of unhelpful comments, or straight out denial of the evidence.  We were basically trying to teach evolution in Kansas.  Or, wherever it is that deniers congregate outside of the Free People's Democratic Republic of New Trumpistan.  
    Those of us who worshiped at the altar of Statistics generally knew our own, and talked from time to time.  Some of us shared a common dream of offering up high quality content that was not moderated by Wargaming's general incompetence, or their concerns over legality and fairness.  We didn't want a fair place.  We wanted a place where idiocy was ridiculed, but a helping hand was extended afterward.  I remember discussing ideas with Allurai many times.
    Also in this time, there was a nice little site called WoTLabs.  It had taken the torch dropped by Tanks of Science.  It collected statistical data, compiled it, and offered it up for consumption.  No bias, just a simple yet beautiful collection of data.  We had used it as a reference many times.  Starting to examine the correlations which would eventually build the later WN ratings.  But times were still tough on the official forum.  Correcting idiots lead to bans, and some great content was ridiculed by deniers.
     
    One night, Allurai tells me he thinks he's convinced Neverwish, the guy behind WoTLabs, to host a new forum.  He also says he thinks he can get Solono on board.  Before that point, I had only thought of it as a nice dream.  Suddenly, it became a potential reality.  Minds met.  Discussions were had.  In addition to being a source of high level content, moderated by competent players, we could introduce a less restrictive version of CR/D.  We could also bring in some of the Old Guard who had been banned.  Finally, we could Name and Shame without fear of punishment.  
    A short time later, I got an invite, and was able to see the early version.  We were selectively bringing good players in, and were starting to amass content.  I "formalized" my association at this point and joined the moderation team.  We chanced a few things, made a few things more presentable, invited a few more players.  We eventually got to the point where we though we were ready for the word of mouth campaign.  We started plugging the site on the main forums.  Never put a link up on the stats page.  People started flowing in.
     
    4 years later, an occasional tanks related post shows up among the anime/furry/hawt gais threads we're now known for.  We have a drink and try not to cry, like eternally disappointed fathers who nonetheless love their sons.

    Tman450 reacted to bask185 in how the f*ck do I play the M48   
    Some tanks can sometimes be jynxed for certain people. A buddy of mine has an amx50B @ 2k wn8 his winrate is 46% atm. He played it for 421 battles now. At the point he played 250 battles he had even higher wn8 than he has now, his winrate back than was a whopping 43%.

    My jynxed tank is the churchillVII, 2250 wn8 @ 47%

    And some times certain tanks just cannot lose. My kv4 won 68% of her last 500 battles and my A-44 scores a whopping 69% and I still dont know that keeps happening.

    Tman450 reacted to Rexxie in E-100 AP pen buff + Faillöwe buff   
    The IS-7's AP rounds are horrible and a big part of why the tank doesn't perform particularly well for most players. It's probably more of a mistake to fire AP in your IS-7 than AP in your E-100. The 113 gets a pass here because it's more accurate, more mobile, and usually gets to beat up mediums instead. If it was forced to play like an E-100, it would be in the same situation.
    Any pen buff is good, but the E-100 will still rely heavily on its HEAT rounds. I agree with Panda that I'd certainly rather have 246 than 235, but at the same time I know how shitty the Type 4/5's AP is despite handling better with 249 pen rounds. The fact that the E-100 will still be worse than that doesn't make me all too excited for a buff. You'll still feel stupid for firing AP rounds.
    There's a larger change that needs to be made here, but it's not just for the E-100. Too many tanks in this game suffer from the same "gold or gtfo" attitude that the E-100 first started making popular at the office.

    Tman450 reacted to dualmaster333 in CW Reward Tanks - A Brief Guide   
    Many of us will soon have to decide what CW reward tank to pick. In looking at what tank I want, I compiled this following guide. Below in each spoiler is a link to tanks.gg showing the reward tank next to its closest tech tree vehicle. I then highlight some of the more significant differences and add my personal verdict on the tank. Below the spoilers you will find two rankings of the tanks. This guide is my opinion but I try to give each tank a fair shake based on an examination of the stats, personal play experience, and word of mouth (since I haven't played all of them).
    -Comparison of all 5 reward tanks-

    T95E6
    Object 907
    M60

    Tman450 reacted to N00BSAIB0T in AW re-designing artillery and possibly removing it   
    Seems like they are turning them into TDs for testing and if that doesn't work, they'll be removed. Either way, artillery in its present form is going away.
    https://aw.my.com/us/news/general/balance-20-progression-changes
    Early on in our evaluation of Artillery for Balance 2.0 we made the hard decision to remove the class in its current form. The ability to deal indirect damage to an opponent who can neither see or retaliate was a mechanic that just didn’t work well with the rest of Armored Warfare. Even with our successful efforts to reduce the impact Artillery had on the battlefield, it never completely took away the frustration players had with it. Not only was it difficult to balance around, but it had real impacts on our ability to create maps as well. Each map we made, whether in PvP or PvE, had to take into account Arty firing lines. We couldn’t have complex cover or tall mountains and buildings because Artillery wasn’t able to shoot over them. With only a very small percentage of our active playerbase playing Artillery, this made it even harder to justify keeping the class.
    Because of these factors, we had a choice; remove Artillery altogether, restrict the class to just PvE or offer the vehicles in a reimagined class form. We decided to go with the third option and have condensed both artillery lines into a single Self Propelled Gun line which offers high damage at the cost of longer aim times and slightly higher reloads. SPG vehicles now have drastically increased mobility to match their real-world capabilities and their Artillery-view has been replaced with a standard zoom reticle. They do retain access to smoke shells, but the illumination support shells have been removed for now. Because of how different the class now plays, we aren’t committing 100% to it sticking around, but we’d like to get player opinions on the changes during the Update 0.19 PTS cycle before deciding whether to keep it or remove the class with the official release of Balance 2.0.

    Headphones all the way. I have a dedicated DAC and Amp setup that i use to power my AKG K7xx's and Sennheiser HD 650's, and i use an external mic like the antlion modmic.
    also most soundcards are mediocre. always better off with a good external DAC/Amp.

    Tman450 got a reaction from megaflex4000 in What kind of price am I looking at for a decent 27" monitor?   
    Your best bet is to pick up a 1080p or 1440p 27 inch monitor. 4k is still expensive and hard to drive. You can probably find a good Freesync 1080p monitor for up to 180 euro. 1440p probably up to 300 euro.
    Those are good price points i think. If you get a 1080p monitor then you don't need a super expensive graphics card to drive it- even a 1060 or RX 480 will drive 60fps+ 1080p on all games.
    A good, popular monitor is the LG 24GM77-B. it's only 24 inches, but it's 144hz, freesync,  good response times and usually affordable. Sorry that i can't hlep more, but i am unfamiliar with the European market for most electronics.
