  1. Thanks for that. I bought it, only played a handful of games in it, but it's a nice little tank. The gun handling is nice, acceptable top speed(acceleration is a bit sluggish, but I have a potatoish crew, apart from a good commander), decent camo and it has a turret. Definitely has a Type 62 vibe about it. My "biggest gripe" is the reverse speed, dear sweet (insert deity here) it feels so bad.
  2. Sorry for the scrub-lord question, but what number would you consider "enough" on this thing? A more, in general answer to the question would be fine. I think I'll buy the T78, it looks like a fun little tank :-)
  3. Fuck me that was long. But that is some seriously good content, thanks Kolni, excellent article. I'm with Haswell, someone needs to sticky this. I will probably read it a hundred times
  4. I have no issue with any of the changes they plan to make. All of them start with "reduce", reducing anything arty can do is a good thing in my opinion. They forgot one crucial parameter though... ONE.CUNT.PER.TEAM! I think removing arty is never going to happen. I think the changes suggested plus one of those cunts per team is the best we can hope for.
  5. Didn't see a thread on this. If this is posted elsewhere please delete and feel free to hurl abuse my way. So they are going to drop it as a test sometime soon. They will not say when exactly so the will get the "best data", but it will be interesting to see how this works in reality. Anything that improves a game at tier 8 is welcome I suppose... https://thearmoredpatrol.com/2019/03/09/get-ready-to-try-out-the-new-matchmaker/#more-69377
  6. 2300 tanks in the queue for Frontline and I get timed out after 3 minutes. Fucking useless cunts WG can't match 30 v 30 tanks...

      Make that 6 fucking minutes in the queue and 2 times outs!

    2. Action


      thats what you geth when you pay your siberian developers with cabbage and window cleaner in wodka bottles... im not even mad anymore... im just sad about myself still playing

    3. MacusFlash


      It looks like they limited amount of games of Frontline on server at the same time. Why? To save their potato servers from burning to ashes.

  7. I may be an outlier here, but I only use female crew members as Commanders. Unless they have changed it again, SOS and BIA now work together (so you get the perk with a mixed crew). If I'm starting a new line, I basically start with a fully trained 2 skill commander with 6th as the fully trained 2nd skill. I can deal with a potato crew at low tiers, but I struggle without 6th. By the time you get to the business end the tech trees the rest of the crew are pretty solid skill wise. :-)
  8. Soooo, I got a message when I loaded into the game this evening. "you have unused rewards please use before 1.4" Or words to that effect. I selected which tanks to apply the bonus to. Do I also have to assign the girl crew members? I vaguely remember from last year that you keep them, but as always WG's potato communication doesn't make it clear..... Just said I'd ask here to save myself from having to visit the main forums.

      No expiration on unassigned crew according to the EU website:


    2. sundanceHelix


      Thanks, was wondering about this as well. Perhaps it's just a catch-all reminder when it detects any reward (tank discount,  crew etc) that hasn't been assigned

  9. 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.
  10. 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.

    4. monjardin


      I did get the Santa guy that I really wanted and the 4 camos.

  11. Ok, what the actual fuck?!

      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

  12. 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?
  13. They buffed the T55A?!?... Ok I wasn't aware there was something wrong with it, fenks Serb.
  14. 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.

  15. 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.
  16. 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.

      took me longer than expected that you are not talking about arty.

WG just give this tank a pen buff and make it somewhat viable again! All the other auto loaders do it's job way better than it. What do you guys think it needs buff wise to make it good again?

  19. 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.
  20. 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...
  21. 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. :-(
  22. 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 :-)
  23. 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.
  24. 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.
