    sohojacques reacted to 21Blackjack in Type 4 Chi-To   
    This tank feels like a turreted TD like the AC4, Strv 74 or M36 to me.  Gun is crazy good for it's tier and has -10 depression.  Doesn't need to load gold with the penetration. It really reminds me of the original STA-2 when it came out, being a sort of turreted TD/Medium Hybrid with meh mobility.  The tank is only slightly bigger than an STA-2 so camo isnt a huge problem, you just have to hide your hull and ridge snipe, and always keep everyone at arms length, like a British tank.  Loader and Ammorack tend to take the hits.

    Hello there.
     
    It's el_01, if you know me, your impressions are probably bad /sarcasm. Either way, the WoT official forums aren't the greatest so I thought I'd pop by and say hi. Ignore my 24-hr WN8 for today. 
     
    Thanks,

    sohojacques reacted to woe2you in The Idiot's Guide to Frontlines   
    I posted this on the official forums in the hope of reaching as many pubbies as possible, and robo suggested on Discord that I cross-post it here. Not expecting it to be news to longstanding Labbers, but if it helps someone...
     
    Episode 7 is upon us, and yet again we're plagued with people who seem to want to play Frontlines in the most self-defeating way possible and ruin the mode for everyone else, so here's the Idiot's Guide to Frontlines.
     
    Let's establish the victory conditions, and it's not what you'd expect: picking up a win or a loss is barely relevant. You'll still be making credits hand over fist either way. What you want whether you're attacking or defending is for all bases to be captured during the course of the game and to run the clock out blowing up each other's tanks. That means that everyone has the most possible time to farm rank, and you want to farm rank because one game at General is worth more than 2 games at Captain, 3 games at Lieutenant or 8 games at Sergeant (and that's just in terms of Frontline progress, you also get the Battle XP multiplier too).
     
    If you're attacking, stop trying to take out the objectives. All that achieves is ending the game early and denies you and everyone else on both teams rank and Frontlines XP. Focus on capping all 6 bases then use the time you've built up to kill enemy tanks.
     
    If you're defending and the clock is running out, allow the other team to cap and prolong the game. You don't want too much time on the clock because uninformed players will rush to hit the objectives instead of capping bases, but conversely you don't want it to come down to the wire and the attackers be prevented from capping and adding time to the clock.
     
    Finally, the best way to gain rank is capping/defending. This makes every game as a defender a balancing act, because you want to be doing the majority of your damage in and around the cap circles, but not when the clock is low because that might lead to an early win/loss.
     
    It's unfortunate that any of this needs to be said, but it's a consequence of Frontlines being a fundamentally broken game mode where the incentives don't align with the victory conditions.

    WG are fine with making things unhistorical for balance purposes, they might as well make things historical for balance purposes.

    The other night I woke up around 4am and thought I’d have to get up to take a leak. But then I did a fart that had enough volume to take the pressure down. So I went back to sleep.

    Finally got the Progetto 46 3MoE. Took me a long time and damn near enoughh 4k average in the  last 2 days to get it - feels harder than a lot of tier 9s.
    Hardest part of the grind was making something of the 15-2 roflstomps, particularly when you lose. So many tier 10 games where I had around 2.5k dmg and the next highest teammate was 1.5k.

    High standards, 3000 damage for 95%.
    All premium Soviet TD done, nearly all tier 8 TD done.

    I'm not shedding a tear for the type 5. I was observing that WG does nerf tanks and doesn't seem to mind nerfing some tanks into oblivion.   I suppose WG's definition of over or under performing is flexible. 
     
    P.S. Should I make my p0st longer with drivel. I feel that the thing is to make l0ng pointless p0sts and nob0dy reads.

    sohojacques reacted to Ezz in Czech tier 8 premium - What the TVP should have been   
    ^^^ exactly. Release broken prems and anything after that will be compared to them. You either keep breaking your game and worsening the issues of p2w fueled power creep or people have a whinge. The fact it is still likely better than the majority of tier 8 meds seems to be lost on people.

    sohojacques reacted to RNG_ in A Couple Things I Noticed Coming Back After 3 Years   
    I started playing back in 2013 and played fairly solidly up until I left for school in 2016. Some friends got me interested in playing the campaign around Christmas and again for the most recent one. After that I decided comp play was kinda fun again and that I might check out some pubs to get some of the new tanks. These are a couple observations I had after jumping back into the game, I would be interested to hear other peoples thoughts on them.
    - Good lord I am bad! I used to comfortably sit around 3k+ and thought that most people should be able to. I thought I would be able to pick up where I left off after a few rusty games but that is definitely not the case.
    - The meta is simultaneously much more passive and much more aggressive. By this I mean it feels like as a single player there are much fewer chances to make successful aggressive plays to change the outcome of the game or push the pace of a match. However on a whole team scale the matches feel like they are much faster in general. The average game feels about 4-5min in length with few exceptions. It feels like there is very little back and forth where a good play can change the game and more lopsided rolls each way. I'm not sure if this is a symptom of the new maps or just me being bad but the game flow definitely feels very different.
    -There are a lot of new and reworked maps. The general theme seems to be that there are a couple areas made viable for each type of tank that you are mostly shoe horned into playing with very little room to take different/aggressive positions. Do you guys find this to be the case or am I just out of touch when it comes to map knowledge?
    -Arty is still here, it no longer one shots you most of the time which is nice I guess. I realize the rework is ancient history to most people now but what was/is peoples overall opinion on it? From my games coming back it feels like we didn't really go anywhere just maybe rearrange the furniture a bit. Still has the overall same effect of punishing anyone who dares get spotted but maybe even more effectively now with the bigger splash.
    -The player base feels super tiny. When I left the top end was already a fairly small group who mostly knew of each other but there was still a multiple viable clans and a good chunk of mid level clans that sometimes punched above their weight. Now it seems like there is only a hand full of the mid level clans and even fewer high level clans. Has the player base really shrunk this much or do I just miss-remember?
    -Kinda linking on to the last point but it feels like most of the people I used to play with are gone or log on once in a blue moon. Is the player base really this dead or is it just a new group playing now? 
     
    Edit: Also I apologize if this is the wrong sub section for this post please do whatever you need to do if it is.
     
    TL;DR, Push me to the edge all my friends are dead?
