  1. It's just as bad on the EU servers. I like how, when you select a tier 8, you get the above results. Then you say fuck it and play a 10, then you get noting but constant all tier 10 battles, with 7 bush humpers and 3 arty per side.
  2. I bought 11 of those Christmas boxes last night. Got that French OP arty and the IS3A. Man the IS3A is broken as balls! What the fuck were WG smoking when they came up with that!?!

      I got 150 and only got E-25 and Defender once lol, on a side note though I can buy every single advent calendar tank.

      I must have gotten really lucky with my boxes then :D


      Did any of you get the Santa crew member? He has 2 skills pre-trained. BIA and 6th..

    3. Ham_


      Yep, I have everything bar IS-3A. Already had skorp but didnt get it again.

      Yeah, considering how cheap they have been over the last year or so, its a VERY nice free gift.

      It also shows we have no life to be here for this long

  4. I would agree with that, but the T55A is a prem, and to be fair most tier 9's are shite compared to the T54. It looks like it's getting a significant speed buff for a couple of insignificant nerffs, along with an armor buff. What do the experts think?
  5. They buffed the T55A?!?... Ok I wasn't aware there was something wrong with it, fenks Serb.
  6. As much as I loathe giving WG any of my money, the other day they gave me a 30% off coupon.. I just couldn't resist buying the Super Persh. I've only had a few battles in it but it feels like a solid tank. The armor is good. Decent gun handling, solid standard round and a very usable gold round, the cammo is good and the view range is acceptable. So you get all of the above and you don't see tier 10's for 19 euros.. A pretty decent deal for once.

    1. Masterpupil2


      Was also a really good deal after they nerfed it years ago a couple days after I bought it and then let people refund later on for its' full gold price instead of buffing it which they did years later anyways. WG.

    Tracking team WN8 over a series of matches

    It happens quite frequently. I don't run xvm but it say 4 or every 10 battles I'd get focused and I'm fucking useless at this game! I'd notice it in certian games that I'm get shit on constantly and after the game I'd check the stats. Low and behold I'd be the "best player" on the team statistically. I was tooning with Vindi a few weeks ago in tier 8's, we ended up in a tier 10 game. We were in the centre of that ice map humping the ridge, popping off shots at the enemy crossing. The IS7 on our team drive's right up over the ridge and sits there trying to hit targets. The 3 arty on the enemy team completely ignored him and spent the entire time shitting on our tier 8 platoon behind the IS7 (Vindi is purple or very close to purple). So a quick stats check afterwards showed the IS7 was a 47%'er... I can totally see why better players than me would hate this game and can in particular xvm. It's fucking cancer! The best decision I ever made in this game was to stop using it.
  8. Any of you playing SCUM? It's an interesting game, still very early in development,  I picked it up a few months ago for like 10 quid or something.  It's a zombie survival type game.  But it's a little more complex than at first glance. The health system is excellent.  It gives you data on everything,  carbs, sfats, salt, all your vitamins and minerals etc.  You have to shit and piss regularly,  it's crazy. I've been learning the ropes on a PVE server and the player base there are super friendly.  Everyone helps each other out, whether it's how to craft things or find things or just trading with each other for useful items. I recommend you check it out, well worth the price of purchase.  It's a nice break from the grind that is tenks...

      Heard of it, watched the E3 presentation, but as much as I love DD I simply don't find the genre fun.

    Elimination: Tier 9 - 2018

    Can someone please update my votes for Jagdtiger and T54E1. To 19 and 9 respectively. It's hard to copy and pasta everything on mobile. Thanks. Conway 11-3= 8 I'm going to break my own rule here by voting for something I don't own, but this thing has no place on this list period! I came up against one of these again last night while tooning with @Vindiand we mauled it. We caught him in a bad spot and he could literally do nothing. I popped up on his side while he was looking forward and got 2 shots into him in my Caernarvon before he even pointed his turret at me. Seconds later he was dead and we steamrolled on. I think this is a bit of a hipster tank. Imo it's beyond useless. T10 30+1= 31 I used to like this tank when it was the IS8, I know it was considered mediocre back then, but I still liked it. It was my first tier 9 and I've never sold it. So it was just a bonus when they turned it into the T10. What can you say about it really. It's just good at most things and can help limit the "shit map" issues some tanks have, as you can almost always find a place or role for it on any map. An excellent all rounder imo.

    The Conway is easy to deal with. As long as it's not pointing it's BOOM stick directly at you it's just a hitpoints pinata. You can pen the thing everywhere which means half aimed shots are viable if you have decent base pen. I think that hurts the Conway even more as it takes 3 weeks to aim it fully...

    Elimination: Tier 9 - 2018

    Jagdtiger 18+1= 19. Same reasons as yesterday really. Good gun and dpm etc. If you choose your victims wisely it's a devastating tank. I'll admit it's a team dependent tank, if you get isolated it's game over as it's easy knock it out. At my level I'm dependant on my team in most tanks so it's a mute point. T54E1 12-3= 9. My old friend, it's so sad to watch this tank fall from where it was. Back in the day, it was a little monster. Decent mobility, decent burst, excellent gold round, ok to make it work consistently you had to spam gold and it bled credits, but it was fun to play. In today's meta it's useless unfortunately. WG could really do with showing it some love. I'd buy it back in a heartbeat if the buffed it sufficiently. But as of today, it has no place on this list. :-(

    Ahh ok. So what is the "best tank" is well above my pay grade. What is the best tank "in peoples opinion" is what the thread is about. Carry on them :-)

    Elimination: Tier 9 - 2018

    Fucking hell, my head hurts reading this thread now. This is turning into tank philosophy. I've actually lost track of what the argument even was at this stage. I think @Kolni made a point along the lines of "he'd prefer to see a less skilled player in something like a T95" for all the obvious reasons. I get that, it makes perfect sense.... Can we please put away the E-penis's and just carry on. Us shitters are taking notes here, if you could keep on topic that would be great.

    Elimination: Tier 9 - 2018

    I can only vote for what I have played so the list is short for me. M103 5-3= 2 I've not played it in years, but I hated it even before the super heavy meta. After moving from the super comfy T32 this thing was just Aids! Even with the top gun unlocked it was still shit. Poke it's big fat fucking head over a ridge and you got murdered by almost everything same tier or higher than you. The cheeks were easy to hit and gold is almost auto pen, the commander hatch is easy to hit, the hull is dog shit, the tank is slow. There are tier 8 heavies that are better than it ffs! I don't own the Emil but I agree with others that it's probably worse than the M103, based on experience fighting them. Jagdtiger 17+1= 18. I'll stay away from the obvious finalists for now. But this is a solid TD imo. I think it does well in the corridor meta too. The gun is fantastic and packs a punch, ok the armour profile isnt tye best but it can bounce stuff if you wiggle. Mobility isn't great,but if you're driving it to the front line it's the wrong place for it imo. Saying super heavies shit on it is a little harsh as super heavies shit on everything anyway. If you can find the right position with views onto a couple of different lines this tank can be devastating.

    SU-130PM Soviet Tank Destroyer

    It's Russian. It will move like a T54, it will have no issue's hitting snap shots..while traveling at 50kmh, with the turret traversing, it will also be fitted with a cloaking device. The most played tank world wide is the Skorp? Not for long..
  19. Just use a pliers to grip the outside of the screw, they shouldn't be that tight. Just be super careful you don't touch the pcb board with the pliers as you'll really fuck the card up. Hold the card side on so you can see a gap between the pliers and the pcb board. Change out your paste, then use 2 of you good screws to refit the cooler. Screw in the damaged one with your hand and the other good screw. A small nip with the pliers on the damaged screw is all you need to hold it.
  20. "My idle temps without MSi Afterburner's custom fan speeds are terrible being around 70-75 degrees Celsius" Fucking he'll that is insanely high for an ideal temperature. I'd agree with others above, the thermal paste is fucked or your fan/fans are faulty. It's simple to change the paste on the GPU. Just make sure you use a non conductive paste. Also you can put more paste on a GPU chip than a CPU so the "grain of rice size bit of paste" doesn't apply. Put a nice blob on and don't over tighten the cooler when you put it back on. That's a common mistake people make. It warps the cooler and it doesn't sit properly. I had really high idle temps on an R9 290x, changed the paste and say a 30c drop.
  21. I'm as good as gone when you consider how many games I play these days. I was actually on last night for a couple of hours. Trying to grind through the Black Prince. I just have no motivation for grinding anymore, it feels like work. :-(
  22. I just checked European prices for the 2080Ti. You're looking at around 1500 US dollars for a decent one.. fml....
  23. So I decided to import my midlife crisis directly from Japan... Before anyone asks, no I don't know what an Initial D is :panting:. When I started doing a bit of research on getting one imported, the name kept coming up. I actually thought they were a tuning company or something at first like TRD.

    I then figured out it's a Japanese comic. This explains why all the kids have gone crazy for these and the prices have gone crazy. Lucky for me that it's the Trueno hatchback version they all want. I like the Trueno's but have always preferred the Levin Booter version...  I struck gold with this car. It has had a complete rust proofing carried out on it. The engine came out and the bay was treated and primed as was the boot(trunk). It also had a complete engine rebuild. Toda Racing cams, Toda Racing pistons, piston rings, Toda Racing valve springs, Toda Racing head gasket, Toda Racing oil cooler. It also has a 2 way Cusco diff and a set of fully adjustable suspension. Attached is a few pictures of it sitting in the port in Japan waiting for export.

      Yeah I see what you mean,nice car but...... I think we have very similar criteria when it comes to what we want in an AE86. Discrete mods, as original looking as possible. I want to drive mine every day and occasionally take it to a track day. The one I got ticked all the boxes for me. It's actually the top spec GT Apex model, and the best part is it still has it's entire original interior! Ok so the interior is D grade, but so what, a good clean and some minor repairs almost always bring it up to a C grade. Having the original drivers seat is unbelievably rare as it's almost always removed for a bucket seat. If you're lucky it would be replaced with a Bride seat, but not everyone has good taste :-).

      That's a nice piece of midlife crisis.

      Oh, @Assassin7 hope you like these "remixes" - imo perfect for drifting to sleep:

    4. Assassin7


      Yeah. If I had an AE86, id be unoriginal and have the white/black panda trueno, and probably similar rims to the watenabes that are on the Initial D AE86, but mainly because I think they look really good. Though if I was actually doing it I would probably choose something different. But Id have to be able to daily it, cant afford to own a daily and a weekend car. 

      But hey, this is my car lol:


      Fully original Integra Type R. Factory recaros and everything.

    WG has gone soccer code crazy

    While I agree that in Europe we all find it strange that it is called "Saccer" in America..(Except in Ireland where a lot of people call it Soccer too, because we have a sport here called Gaelic Football (Hurling is better btw) ). Anywho, Soccer is actually an English word and is believed to be a slang version of "Association" (Association Football). So as it stands Soccer is very much a very old English slang word.
