  1. Trying to play HTs again. I suck even more than I remember sucking at it.

    Also, RNG on pen really needs to fuck off, along with arty. 

  2. EBR Hotchkiss: is the gun handling good enough to not use vertstabs and go rammer instead? Or are vertstabs necessary for max auto-aim yolo results?

      Idk about the hotchkiss, but on the 105 i'm running rammer vents optics + coffee so i can get 445 VR, haven't really missed the Vstab that I ran with the first few games

      @lavawing true. But I don’t have enough bonds laying around to spend them on a tier 7. Will run food though.

    4. sohojacques

      sohojacques

      No vertstabs necessary (with a pog crew and food anyway).

  3. I am so sick of HE spamming, auto-aim, retards in wheeled vehicles. Often can’t start playing the actual game until the fuckers are dead. Which, as we all know, can take a stupid amount of time because of their fucked design.

      You know, the last time I had a relapse a Tiger 1 was shooting HE into my T-34 85.

  4. The Vatican just approved the addition of another level of hell so they could include playing on the HK server.

  5. Help a stupid person:

    Why can I sometimes, but not always, change modules, load outs, etc, on tanks.gg when comparing tanks side by side? The options bar is there some days and not others?

      @Wanderjar no add ons. @hazzgar you still on a geriatric Mac like I am? Maybe that’s our issue (in general and more specifically). But trying a different browser has always been a successful workaround when I’ve run into issues like this in the past.

    3. Wanderjar

      Wanderjar

      I can't say I've run into or seen that issue before personally. (Win 8/chrome) But, i'll ask this, Is this a recent thing like within the last month or so?

      the chromium base code that makes up many browsers (Chrome, Edge, Opera, epic, brave etc)  was changed to handle drop menus and ad blockers differently so that may be it. try a non-chromium based browser maybe? 

    4. sohojacques

      sohojacques

      @Wanderjar not sure. Will check.

  6. WG need to remove team damage so we can stop getting fucked by our own arty. That is all.

      Alternatively, WG could apply the same team damage rules to arty that apply to everyone else. 

      This would be so great, but it would pretty much be a blanket account ban for most clickers. 

    3. Oicraftian

      Oicraftian

      But then Arty would have to move up to the front lines to fuck with allies.

      @monjardin A good solution fixes two birds with one stone. 

  7. Just had an enemy T-54 flip onto its back while ramming me. I moved on as I had bigger fish to fry. When his time ran out and he died I was credited with the kill. Bonus 458 damage. Weird.

    1. sohojacques

      sohojacques

      It counted as a ram kill btw.

  8. Got my first chat ban :PogChamp:

    It must take directly insulting a mod. Cause I’ve been abusing arty players in game with every bannable term for the last 3 years.

     

    1. Assassin7

      I imagine that someone finally sent a support ticket in for it. 

    2. sohojacques

      sohojacques

      Weird that the ban started at around 8pm, mid session, though?

    3. Oicraftian

      Oicraftian

      I believe that you indeed bothered a mod.

      Generally WG does not care.

  9. Had my first WoT-related hardware casualty last night. It was a cheap keyboard anyway....

    1. LamaLeif

      LamaLeif

      Were there airborne keyboard buttons?

    2. sohojacques

      sohojacques

      Yes, along with the keyboard as a whole. My high point of gaming rage thus far.

  10. Quickly remembering why I stopped playing during the last tank marathon: max Sunday pubbies action for ten days straight...

  11. Can’t say I missed you Clippy. Glad you got back on the horse after all these years though. Good for you. 

    1. Wanderjar

      Wanderjar

      yay clippy is back

  12. 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?

    1. FavreFan4ever

      FavreFan4ever

      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.

  13. WG advertising stats on why wheeled vehicles are the best cathartic SPG counter:

    https://worldoftanks.asia/en/news/general-news/wheeled_vehicles_mar_result/

    "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.

    4. sohojacques

      sohojacques

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

  14. WTF is with tank RNG in gaming?! I bought the first Valkyria Chronicles (50% off on the Switch atm). First shot I take in the Edelweiss, fully aimed at the enemy tank’s weak spot, finds the edge of the reticle and seriously damages the gate I’m meant to be defending. God damn all pixel tanks. God damn them all to hell.

  15. Thank you Hollow Knight for killing what was left of my interest in WoT.

    HK might not be much to look at but it’s astonishingly good to play. If you like Dark Souls mindset gameplay I can’t recommend it enough.

    1. Action

      Action

      same for me but not with hk.. i reinstalled skyrim , modded the livng shit out of it and have a blast in my game time now..

    2. sohojacques

      I had a few months off from WoT early last year playing Skyrim. But then it dragged me back in again...

  16. Sunday arvo pubbies: 6 games all under 6 minutes...

      Fuck me - I had to google "arvo".  

    3. sohojacques

      sohojacques

      11 games in the end with only one cracking 6 minutes. It dragged on until 6:26...

    4. hazzgar

      hazzgar

      Yeah I dropped 10% in my strv-0 because the 4x weekend pubbies decided their best strategy for loosing "do nothing for 5 minutes then yolo 1 by 1". 

      Went up by 8% on marks at the same time. 

  17. I’ve played 3 sessions of Frontline now and can honestly say I haven’t enjoyed a single moment of it. Just the usual pubbie shit amplified to 11 and extra arty.

      Also games don't last as long. Attackers win 90% of the time

      Manus can be killed or weakened by using a bow in the room before you jump to him. Looking a the pit on the right before the boss fog you can see his red eyes. Equip a bow and the hawk ring and manually aim to shoot at him. You will be able to damage him. Don't bother summoning Sif as you have to do mid fight and it gets you killed more than helping you while looking for it.

    3. sohojacques

      I take it you’ve got a few play throughout under you belt?

      Yep I had a dex magic buff build, a Zwei buold and a super buff build with the greatsword you get from Kalameet. 

      ATM I am playing DKS3. Bosses are kinda easier but the game is faster so a bit more fun. Also I do some pvp. It's nice.

  19. Game just kicked me out of a battle and back to garage. No need to log in again. Never had that happen before.

      Yeah, that happened to me one time that I recall. I thought it was a server thing.

      I've had it happen before, was some server issue that they had to hotfix IIRC

      Even the game is encouraging you to stop playing and go do something better, time to take the hint. :doge:

  20. 47%. That stock tier 8 feeling...

    1. hazzgar

      hazzgar

      Stock t8? Have you tried stock t9? 

    2. sohojacques

      sohojacques

      Unfortunately yes.

  21. I'm not good enough to get accused of hacking all that often. Feels real good when I do. But can someone please explain what an "S/W" is?:

      just start laughing at them really.

      If it helps, it's easy to misread what he said. Usually "fuck-up" is the noun and "fuck up" is a verb phrase. So you can read him as giving you instructions rather than calling you names. And he appears to think he is giving these instructions to a child!

  22. Is the stock gun the better choice on the Conway? Looks to be on paper. If wotlabs says yes, I can save my free xp for other grinds.

      Yzne (FAME) on Twitch is currently playing the Conway with the small gun, for DPM and accuracy reasons.

      I played with the 5.5 primarily shooting hesh. You actually get better dpm than the 120mm when penning hesh, which isn't that rare. Both guns are excellent, but HE(sh) ammo best ammo

  23. Grinding low tiers with a zero skill 5O% crew and it leaves me wondering why I continued playing this game after experiencing it the first time around.

      Why the hell are you grinding with 50% Crew? 

    3. monjardin

      monjardin

      FFS. Never play with a 50% crew.

      :huemanatee:

      Shitbarn is my discount Xmas line. Fuck spending a single credit or free xp on tiers 1-3. Valentine gets a credit trained crew. Will start looking after my crew over the next couple of tanks.

      Late game Prokorovka: stock Cruiser III with 50% crew vs an obviously pimped out Luchs... That kind of experience really makes me wonder how this game retains any new players at all.  

  24. I’m so bad at this game, I still catch myself leaning sideways to try and look around corners.

    1. monjardin

      monjardin

      You are not alone.

  25. Could people stop quoting giant slabs of text to make a minor point in threads. Use @ or actually delete the ten other paragraphs your not referring to when quoting. It’s not that hard to do.
