  1. Long dormant poster contribution: For context, I mostly play heavy tanks, though I've diversified recently into the Brit armored TD line and am working on getting the Obj 430. I've learned to despise Prok in any kind of slow tank because there's almost always one arty and going mid means you will be exposed and be targeted, and will eventually be hit. It's especially cruel to the AT-7 because the sheer number of ridges everywhere makes it impossible to return fire from the 1-2 line without cresting and getting chewed up as the gun is so low on the chassis. Prok is great fun in an ELC, a Bishop, or FV304, but I wouldn't want to inflict it on anything not capable of hitting and sustaining 40km/h on a flat surface. Black Prince, for example (The stock BP spawning on Prok singlehandedly tanked my recent WN from over 1.6k to whatever it is right now) Mountain Pass is terrible for reasons everyone has already covered. Airfield is a pain because artillery has basically free reign over the entirety of the map and if either high point is lost you can't advance without getting shot to bits. Live Oaks is situationally bad, usually when one side has way more mediums than the other, at which point they just steamroll the south side and chew everything up before the heavies even get to town. Other times the south spawn will spot a few light tanks and everything grinds to a halt in the plain just north of the spawn, yielding all of town to north spawn. Himmelsdorf is nigh impossible with the slower thin-skinned TDs like the Archer (it's inflexible enough already) and S35CA, as the map is so tiny camo can't really hide you and your mobility isn't enough to take advantage of changes in the situation. It's also really annoying to be a bottom tier slow heavy for similar reasons. Westfield is usually okay, but having arty seriously puts a damper on what you can do in tanks like the T34. Sand River is always murderous on slow, gun depression poor heavies like the Churchills and the KV-4. There's nowhere you can go that's really arty safe, and trying to fight over the ridges is a fool's errand when your turret face is weak and you can't depress the gun enough to hit the enemy anyways. Fisherman's Bay is a fine map, it's just the sheer number of trees in some areas of the city makes it impossible to see where the fuck you're aiming or driving in arcade mode, which has caused more than one unfortunate permatracking for me.
  2. That... Is not good to hear. I've been sinking my time into the wrong lines it seems. Another thing to make a thread about. So I've pretty much ground out a dead end. Well then, time to get cracking with my T67.
  3. For my first formal forum thread on WoTLabs I'm going to pose the question: How do you deploy the S35 CA, especially on CQC oriented corridor maps? In just two days it's become one of my favorite tanks and I'm clearly doing something right somehow (highest WN8 of all of my tanks, lolwat) despite not reading a single guide on how to use the tub of doom, but as I'm trying to use it to complete TD-15 I'm being hampered by the rampant corridor maps and a lack of high hitpoint targets to punish due to a glut of T5 matches. So far I've been using the high alpha 105mm and spamming APCR for that extra damage (I'm also throwing matches left and right due to horrible shooting on my part, but that's a topic for a different time). In general I try to stay as far back as possible and be as greedy as possible from afar, which I hope is the right way to do this. If completing TD-15 in this thing is unfeasible, should I grind the French TDs, the British TDs (turreted) or the US TDs (Turreted)? I've heard that the French TD line has been powercreeped to death and that even the Bathtub is a mere shadow of its former might, I know for a fact the ARL is pretty horrible from watching a friend struggle with it, and the Foch 155 doesn't even compare to the WTE-100, but what about the others like the AC 46, 48, and the Foch?
  4. Hi WoTLabs! As a [insert derogatory term for pubbie], I've only ever known this site as a stats tracker but after browsing the forums I think it's high time I create an account. Over 6.4k battles I've slowly learned more and more about the game and watched my stats begin to climb up from that awful spell from my first to my 4,000th game. Poor playing still cost me winnable matches though and so in the name of having more fun I made a goal: hit a 2k WN8 and a 55% WR (both recent) without padding. I started searching for more resources, first hitting a WoT thread in a forum I frequent and youtube videos, then the WoT official forums, and finally I found this place. I'll be pestering everyone here for advice in my quest, so thanks in advance for tolerating my rampant scrubbery
