  1. Yep, retarded. Arty can already fuck you over in most positions on most maps. Look, for example, at my last post above. Getting hit behind hard cover is bullshit. The only way arty can prevent camping is by being able to spot red liners for themselves (which would be hilarious btw).
  2. Just got what turned out to be a 1 question survey on logging in: “How likely are you to recommend the game to friends or colleagues?” What possible relevant information can be gleaned from my answer with no further detail?  Cause why would you want to find out why people like or dislike your primary source of income?

      Only reason I can think of is that this is a "test the waters" survey- if the response meets a certain threshold, no further surveying is needed. Should the responses be less than positive, a more in-depth survey will need to be worked on.

      Or it's an error of some kind and the survey was sent out before being completed.

  3. As long as arty can do anything remotely like this it should not be in the game: Dead driver. Tracked and stunned for 18 seconds. Missed me for 400hp more later in the game. That's what I get for camping....
  4. FTFY. Simple experiment: remove arty from one of the two EU servers for a couple of weeks. See which server people log into... The percentage of shitlords who primarily play arty is tiny. Smaller, I’m certain, than the number of players who have left the game because of, among other reasons, arty ruining the gameplay. Many pubbie tears would fall if arty was removed; “you owe me xp, etc, blah, blah, blah”. But the reality is fuck all of them would stop playing. And a heap of former players might come back (only to get infuriated by RNG and leave again).
  5. @Wanderjar I’ll take what I can get. Thanks renting pubbies.
  6. Necro........... The MoE requirements must be seriously low on this tank for me to accidentally get over the line: I was genuinely surprised when this came up. My overall performance in this rig has been bad, even by my lowly standards.
  7. And thanks to WG’s willingness to abuse their own overmatch mechanic, load HEAT to pen kinda deal?
  8. Does the automatic siege mode only effect the amount of gun depression available with these tanks then? Not gun handling?
  9. @hazzgar that’s how I feel playing the PTA. I do my best to write it off as confirmation bias. But then I take the 430 out for a spin...
  10. @Ezz the gun handling on the Pog 46 is Std. B punishes you a lot more for not reigning in your reticle.
  11. @hazzgar no worse than the PTA or the 7/1 for me, which I played at the same time. None of them can snapshot.

    HWK 30

    Sums up the state of the game nicely. WG “balancing” tier 8 premiums for 3-5-7MM has, I suspect, set in motion a endless cycle of buffing that will never result in balanced game play.
  13. WG are going on about how they’re a good SPG counter. If you yolo at the start of the game, possibly? But having the speed to get to late game mop up first doesn’t necessarily equal counter. What they do counter, unquestionably, is higher tier LTs. Cause there’s a group of tanks that needed nerfing: underpowered on release; fucked further by 1.0 map changes and the merkins WG handed out to most camping locations. Now you lose out on a heap of early spotting opportunities as well. And I know WoT doesn’t even remotely resemble a simulator, but the physics defying acceleration and unflippability of the WVs is so comically stupid; it more like pin ball than a tank game. The only saving grace is that hardly anyone plays them.
  14. WG advertising stats on why wheeled vehicles are the best cathartic SPG counter:


    "Summary: Wheeled vehicles are perfect for a commander who has been waiting to get revenge on SPGs."

    Best yolo scouts confirmed.

      I actually think the wheeled vehicles are doing a much much better job solving the supposed issue that arty was supposed to solve which is camping.

      The hard counter to camping is and has always been to just rush the fuckers.

      And WG designed a vehicle perfectly suited to the task. WV’s are basically a counter to their own shit map design.
