  1. I could be wrong, but on 252u seams the same as Vstab + more traverse speed, but i didnt put enoguh games in to be 100% about that, ^ it does. I feel on 252u that bloom is almost the same as with Vstab.
  2. Well i was confused with your later post about 121 gun handeling, and i get confused easily(just look at my stats). Now that i mess with equipment i will try turbo/rammer/IRM. IRM seams like improved Vstab on some tanks.
  3. WOT just got MInsked. Not even the site works, or servers. I didnt see what is on EU right now.

      NVM..all got back up

      I've seen in passing Belarus is having some sort of protests against their authoritarian government, so it seems to be cutting the internet to disrupt their communication.

    3. RedwoodOriginal


      @Jesse_the_Scout As i understand, protests are related to recent elections. And goverment cut internet in Belarus. I dont see how this could disrupt NA servers, but anything is possible these days. Lets just hope for best outcome, and that violence will stop soon in Belarus.

  4. I gave it a try with turbo. I like the mobility, but i just cant adapt to no Vstab. 121 just fires too slow to pew pew pew(unlike 140 or 62a). Its like i need that turbo to get me out of situation to safely wait for gun to reload when i miss/bounce/crithit. maybe Turbo/IRM/Rammer will be better. But with out vents my view range will be shittier, and other things too. IDK yet.
  5. Thank you! I was always a pussy not to run Vstab, even though i have bia crew with snap shot. Guess 121 will be my first turbo tank.
  6. While all buffs for e50m and 121 lines are great news, i dont get why shell velocities nerf?!? 140 buff even though not needed, i say why not(just cause i own it and i like it), it will again feel like true russian MT when randomly bouncing shots that shouldnt bounce. Can you please tell what hat do you run on 121? Turbo/vstab/rammer or turbo/rammer/fakeVstab or turbo/rammer/vents. I dont see how 121 could run without Vstab/fakeVstab, and idk if droping rammer is even an option.
  7. Is Skorpion worth buying if you have SU130 PM? Im asking cause even jgTIg88 has better camo rating than Skorp(and Panther2 too).  What it does have over 130 si; better aim time, reload time, turret 360° and, as i understand better mobility. But i guess you need all that cause no camo.

      With camo net so you get spotted while going into the bush. So nope. Also 450m with binocs is garbage. Also the gun is derpy yes.

    3. RedwoodOriginal


      Ill just wait what will come up next in store.

    4. hazzgar


      Somua, Borrasque and Renegade are the least annoying for good players

  8. To go for T57 or not?! Is it any good. I had great time grinding T69(back when it had 170pen),  recently i played one game with it, and noticed its blind as a bat(i run gld vents Vstab, switched now for optics). Anyway, i have unlocked T54E1 and all i can find about it; that its a terrible tank.

      The DPM/burst is indeed glorious. The gun-handling on other hand is absolute cancer.

      2.78 aim time (tied for 2nd worst among all T10 heavies)

      0.24 hull dispersion (tied for worst with IS-4)

      0.17 turret dispersion (Type 5 has highest 0.21 with derp gun and 3rd highest 0.12 with 14cm)

      Hard to take advantage of 2s interclip without sending shots to the moon. Even shooting HEAT is a crapshoot. You basically have to be point blank range to get the most out of the gun, but then have to deal with the terrible armor and 12 km/h reverse speed.

      I would say it's worth having due to how unique it is, but I don't know if anything other than the 183 makes me want to pull my hair out more.

      @PityFool im on a credit grind right now, just so i can play 10s in peace later, and i staked cola for long time from mission so this set up will be no problem.

      @RC_Tank i too sometimes get cocky and forget about how fast i can get cliped by T57, or perma tracked.

      @dustygator gld, vents, optics + cola, and bia crew with smooth ride and snapshoot, i think(but i dont know), should help with gun handling(i hope). 

    4. SkittlesOfSteeI


      T57 is actually really fun to play with improved vstab and directives. Good enough that I drop gld for optics. It eats up tanks like nothing else and the turret is so random you'll get some free clips in if you learn how to wiggle.

  9. Lorraine 40t vs 252U. Can these two even compare? Lorr with better pen, view range , accuracy, mobility, camo and dpm VS more armor and alpha of 252U(and russki RNG). What tank is better carry tank?

      252 it is. @ZXrage 140alpha more than lorr can be of more use in late game when you need to count on that one shoot to clean up, im too fun of big alpha.

      @PityFool yeah, i understand that heat from obj140 can be soaked up by some random angle, track or spaced armor on 252, but as @Wanderjar said, apcr in flat side!?! What is up whit that?!

    3. Wanderjar


      yeah the bullshittium armor is definitely real on that thing. almost as bad as the 257

    4. RedwoodOriginal


      @Wanderjar i hope it is. I didnt try it out yet, it just sits in my garage for now. Shot_007_5f0d857357688.jpg

  10. Only one question, SU 130PM or Lowe? Now its time for new credit grinder. Wich of two is better as prem. Wich can carry harder? 520alpha or armor?

      @PityFool its a destroyer of dreams for enemy teams. When enemy is winning and go for push hard, you just deny them one by one. 30 more alpha gives you 20dmg more on lowest of low rolls and 40dmg more on high roll vs 490alpha skorpion gun, if you look at it like this 30 more alpha is pretty huge. 

    3. CandyVanMan


      I run it with rammer/gld/optics, but I'm considering switching optics out for binocs, problem is that I don't have patience to camp, so binocs are barely in effect for me.

      Much better for shitting credits than Löwe anyway, though I like both.

    4. RedwoodOriginal


      @CandyVanMan i prefer optics on most tanks for same reasone. Went with binocs cause just felt right.

  11. I've excluded Glacier. I would rather play Paris.

  12. Can you compare EUvsNA stats? Is one of these servers easier to play? Are unis from one server lesser unis than from other? Someone said; that you cant compare stats from these two servers.

      EU has a lot more than that - a lot of them don't stream, or don't stream in English. Not sure on active server size comparison but EU is super active right now with Covid, and even FAME has become active again after Daki rejoined.

      Reports of WOT's death (at least on the EU sever) were greatly exaggerated, despite what people have been saying on here since  . . . well, since I became a member.

      Definitely frustrating, with a lot of flaws, but people still seem to be playing. Definitely a Covid bounce.

    3. hazzgar


      @Snoregasm2 WOT EU is still shrinking. Wait time show that. Also WG thinks that (fact, not what I think. Seriously what they say internally) 

    4. MagicalFlyingFox


      Slow decline is slow.



      play on Hong Kong server for WoT Hard mode.

  13. Is  IS6 any good in this meta? Or should i just go with wz T8 prem TD, and it hope doesnt get hit with nerf bat?

      @RedwoodOriginal WZ is a better tank. Lowe makes better money. If you say you are bad now think if you are worse hull down and sidescraping or playing vision games? For Lowe just watch out for the below mantlet weakspot.

      Best just watch Skill/Circon/Orzy/Iyouxin in both of those tanks. 

    3. lavawing


      @hazzgar cries in WZ-120 and 430 V2

    4. RedwoodOriginal


      @PityFool good point, two is better than one.

      @hazzgar cause of equipment 2.0, wz could be crippled in vision games, and Lowe could benefit from 2.0 equipment. I might just go with both.

  14. Since when is valley push @ Lakeville tactically viable?!

      Valley plays gives you a lot of free farm for you IF 
      1. there are no arty
      2. you have the right kind of tank, e.g. T32 or Conq - but then you also need to push when the chokepoint is finally clear - and there's a TD camping position which can kill you
      3. both teams have a shit tonne of heavies so that you can be sure there will be shitters on the other side attempting the same thing
      In hulldown-y tanks, I guess you could make an argument that if all the conditions are met, you will contribute more by locking down the valley/pushing. 

    3. SchnitzelTruck


      I won nearly every time I pushed valley. The trick is to not go there when it's an obviously bad decision. Once I get over the center ridge the pubbies always follow and it becomes easy cleanup.

    4. kolni


      if u have turret armour u can valley

      pushing it is good if amount of high alpha td's are low, also requires low arty and enemy team with shittier valley tanks than yours

  15. That is why there is no memes of SerB on forums! I didnt play for around two years, and yes game did suffer.
