      Never mind, turns out i've been living under a rock. 

    2. Never


      Bro, if you hadn't posted this, I would probably not have known. Been looking for a Type 59 pretty much since I started playing in 2013. Finally have one now. I can die in peace. Thank you.

      im also like this, i WANT is and i NEED it, but 70 euro for prem tanks nr 15 or 20 (i lost count, hurr durr)...

      This is a real first world problem...

  2. Looks like they listened to the grumbling peons. Now we just wait and see what they come back with. https://thearmoredpatrol.com/2021/03/05/sandbox-test-crew-2-0-feedback-reactions/
  3. I'm not following the maths here. To my tired brain shouldn't stacking 4 instructors with +2 Coherence with 10 skills points make a bonus to vehicle handling of 9%? (18 points x 0.5 = 9) Can someone see what I'm missing. (Call me cynical but I think the missing ingredient is vodka)
  4. WN8 is a zombie, it should have been dead and buried years ago but players keep insisting on using it to judge skill. Its been more or less broken since the introduction of T10 lights and decision not to reset statistics for all of the LTs that were massively rebalanced. Go have a read of the WN8 thread and see what the developers have to say about the metric. IIRC the consensus is the WG PR is the best metric we have currently when combined with winrate and dpg. edit: Here is the link to post I was loosely referencing.
  5. Has any one mentioned the firefighting directive getting neutered so you have to either train the skill or drop food for an extinguisher?
  6. Hopefully it hits WG'g in the gonads pocket
  7. Find another game. (yes, I'm salty as fuck about these changes.)

    Type 62

    Ah Yes, My mistake. I had my wires crossed with my wz132 setup. The type 62 was my go to tank when I wanted to play something fun before I got my bourrasque.

    Type 62

    This thing can be pushed out to pretty crazy view range limits combined with the CVS / LNES makes for a fun scout that is not too bad in the gun side. Just be prepared to spam plenty of HEAT.
  10. Imagine being so butthurt about a single game that you go out of your way to post on someone's replay page about "camping/sniping purples not even that good at winning hurr-durr" I take this back. This guy is even more retarded than I realised. sr360,please keep it up, this pleb has learnt lots watching all your recent scout replays.
  11. https://thearmoredpatrol.com/2021/01/12/wot-supertest-crew-2-0-info/ Oh man, this sounds worse than I could have imagined.
  12. Put it this way; If you're in a T8 tank, what is more intimidating to encounter? Personally, most 112/ patriot players that one encounters are idiots and not a problem. So you have to discount the 'average' encounter. A 112 is easier to play against because you only need to put some distance between you and him (Fuck Mines - its banned). A patriot is less easy to deal with because while he is still only taking 240hp, its death by a thousand papercuts and try running away if your perma tracked.
  13. My tin foil hat might be a bit tight; Has anyone else noticed a big upswing in ammo rack detonations? It seems like every other game at the moment has some poor bastard losing his/her head

  14. I've been playing around with equipment for that tanks since the big shakeup. I've since settled on CVS + bounty optics + LNES + food + BIA + SS directive makes this an insanely good tank on open maps like Prok / fishermans bay / Mali / Muro. I really haven't missed the rammer or vents tbh. I've had more 8k+ spotting games in the last month than I have in the last year combined. Also, Fuck EBRs with a rusty rake.
  15. With a good (4.9ish skills) crew, turbo + improved vents + directive + rammer, throw coke into the mix and this tank is _really_ nice. The turbo makes a big difference imo to being able to contest positions as well as being able to run away when things go south. I've not noticed a big upswing in games won but the tank just feels that much more comfortable that it is back into the running for my favourite T10 med.
  16. This tank with a good crew / coke and optics + CVS + vents has been absurdly fun to play this patch.
  17. Er, are we just going to pretend this isn't happening? (Unless I've misread this, I read that its getting a gun depression buff)
  18. And abusing the corners of the square render box from the top of Prok hill.
  19. Is the T100lt really considered bad now? I know it is outclassed by that fucking wheeled piece of shit but it is still #2 in tier right?
  20. If they had planned, It wouldn't be a pandemic like this.
  21. To quote a smarter man than me, "Those that don't study history are doomed to repeat it. Those that do, are doomed to stand by helpless while everyone else repeats it."
  22. Granted, However there is still a lot of cases that have very mild symptoms that have not been tested and don't appear on the global statistics. IIRC It is implied that 80% of cases have mild to no symptoms. This represents a huge problem when the primary mechanic for tracking the outbreak revolves around tracing people once they become symptomatic. Look closely at the sub populations that invested in _massive_ testing regimes to get ahead of the bug. These sub populations will give a much closer representation of the big picture because they include more of the mild symptom cases.
  23. That's a slight misnomer given that deaths happen a lot quicker in the evolution of the case than does recovery. So using the deaths:recovered ratio is never going to accurate while things are moving quickly. Off the top of my head I think the numbers are death is likely in the first 2 weeks while full recovery takes up to 6 weeks. Our resident medical experts can proabably shed more light onto this. IIRC the overall death rate is trending toward ~1% from expert opinion.
