    SolarflareGrenraven got a reaction from monjardin in Italian Tanks: Progetto M35 mod 46 (vol. 1 and 2) and New Mechanic   
    I think you have misunderstood, the more you have loaded the faster the reload so with 2 loaded it takes 8 seconds for the 3rd to load, if you empty your clip, the first shell takes 14 seconds to load, the 2nd 11 and the 3rd 8 seconds giving a total reload time of 33 seconds
    So it means you need to be careful about unloading 
    From the video i watched it was a 3 shell clip, and with best case 8 second reload that's only 1800 DPM based on 240 Alpha and 7.5 rounds per minute unless i'm missing something?

    SolarflareGrenraven got a reaction from bigrebone in Anyone finding Platoon matchmaking a nightmare?   
    Hi Guys,
     
    I often play alone in randoms and generally find the matchmaking is ok and relatively fair, although they should implement some sort of skill based metric to even up the skill of teams.
    HOWEVER - Everytime i platoon up with my friend who is of a similar level to me (1600+ recent) the matchmaking just gives us shit game after shit game.. i'm talking never top tier and 90% of games bottom tier
    Is this just us who are cursed or is it happening to all platoons?
    Regards,

    SolarflareGrenraven got a reaction from CandyVanMan in Why when i ask a perfectly sensible question in the american vehicle section about an american vehicle is it closed down?   
    I am not just driving around in it stock which i thought i had cleared up earlier in the thread? i am grinding the tank and have not yet got to this gun...
    And free xping 68k of experience isn't something i can afford to do at the moment
    Sorry if that makes me a burden but at the end of the day i have kids and a family and i spend the money i can spare on premium account time..i don't have the money to free xp through tanks like you obviously have..

    SolarflareGrenraven got a reaction from CandyVanMan in Why when i ask a perfectly sensible question in the american vehicle section about an american vehicle is it closed down?   
    In fairness having reread my post what I asked was how much better does the top gun perform... Not as some of you have said... Is it better.. Obviously its better but I was asking peoples thoughts on how much of an improvement it would be.
     
    I also did not imply at all that I was planning to skip it... So im not sure where that came from?
     
    And where in "is the m48a1 an improvement tier for tier" does it imply I want to bypass the m46? I was merely asking if its a good tank...
     
    To me you seem to have made too many vague assumptions about my intent without even asking a question...
     
    Anyway I wont be bothering to post any further as im clearly not on your wavelengths

    Hi,
    I am curious, since when do the moderators close down a forum thread which is put in the right section just
    because it may or may not have been discussed in the official forums?
    I was under the impression a WOT based forum was for discussing WOT based subject matter?
    According to one of the moderators this isn't the case?
    Is it wrong to ask the members of the forum their opinion on a tank that has been recently buffed?
    I wonder if this will be binned and closed too??
     
    Regards

    My issue is they shouldn't be giving out improved equipment as rewards (in the form of excessive bonds) which gives
    the already better players an unfair additional advantage... how is that fair?
    But then i would expect someone who is one of the people benefiting from this to defend it.
    If you want to be seen to be better than others more power to you but why should you have a distinct advantage? rather
    than just getting something that's cosmetic to flex with?
    You think its fair to have faster reload, better view range, better camouflage than average people? if you do then your just
    a fucking moron to be honest and my point is lost on you

    It's not fair. Even most good players agree that was a shit move by WG.
    As for ranked mode, it is awful gameplay and there's almost no reason for anyone, let alone good players, to play it.

    One more thing that may be influencing the gameflow is more TD's recently thanks to Foch rush and STRV special.

    SolarflareGrenraven got a reaction from bigrebone in Good morning. Just signed up with this forum after finding link from WoT forums   
    Hello mate, its nice to see you are keen to improve as often when you see "tomatoes" in game they are either oblivious to how bad they
    are or they think your an elitist for trying to point out how they can improve

    SolarflareGrenraven got a reaction from SteelRonin in Hi again, noob here   
    Hi Steel,
    It kinda depends what sort of info you are looking for really, are you new to the game or just new to the forums?
    If you are new to the game and are looking for tips on how to improve the mechanics / vehicles sections will give a good insight into the game.
    Alternatively if you are looking a complete beginners guide to the basics its something i was planning on doing on my YouTube channel soon.
    Anyway welcome whichever and if theres anything i can help with let me know.

    Regards.
