  1. Bought back the WZ-120, got a fresh ace tanker on first battle.
    I think this tank is a hidden gem tbh.

      i really had a hard time making it work, there are too many good tier 9 meds that just shine so much brighter for the same amount of effort

    2. CandyVanMan


      It can be quite annoying to work the terrain to get enough gun depression, but it seems to be easier than it was when it first came out, as the maps have been dumbed down and flattened out so much.
      Much less of an issue compared to what it once was, of course, I've only played two battles in it so far after rebuying it, but if I still enjoy it after a few more, I'll at least go for marks on it.

    3. CraBeatOff


      I've always liked it. I agree its never a star but it's satisfying

  2. Lol, 50M this game was big mad.
    Bounced twice on my Sheridan.
    Convo'd me after battle, he seemed a bit annoyed.




  3. Lol, got banned for 14 days on official forums.
    It's been a while since my last ban.

      it’s probably the autism word itself due to it being a pretty common slur these days that triggered it, calling something cancer is the same thing

      i think it’s fine (i have stage II) but it’s a tight rope to walk across to bother using it specifically and at the same time not mock the people living with it - it’s just needlessly overused as an insult so most people probably just considers it one 

      however if countries were mental disorders autism is definitely germany.. not even dark humour, just an accurate observation




    3. hazzgar


      @kolni lol while Germany has its faults (my mothers husband is one of them lol) Poland beats you on being the stereotypical autistic kid. Hell there is a reason I will be spending the next 2 weeks of my leave around Munich and later Berlin and not in Poland


      We have frequent members of the pariliment voting opposite to what they want on accident. Our ruling party is so incompetent that even if they have good ideas (very very very rare because they are crazy in all ways) they screw them up and our mp's say stupid shit like "coal isn't eco but polish coal is" or "we thought the french how to use forks and knives". Not to mention some crazy lady with a kid with down syndrome is effectively influencing politics to get a total abortion ban, now wanting to push a law that was deemed illegal by the international court in strassburg (no law to protest for gay people...).

      reported 4 hard 2 read

  4. For the first time in a while, I'm both chat banned and banned from official forums.
    Might celebrate this with a cold beer.

    1. hazzgar


      To quote the great actor Nicolas Cage "That's high praise"

    2. Folterknecht


      Wasn't that the default status for most 322 members back in the day, before they deleted the "Round table" in EU-Forums?

    3. CandyVanMan


      I miss the old 322 days, before the cw drama.
      Shitposting on forums, shitposting in battles, winning 15-0 against top clans with meme setups, was a fun time.
      Don't think I was ever chat banned back then, but quite often on official forums.

  5. Hallelujah!

    No more playing Hellcat or other shitty ass low tier TDs, finally got my 260.

    Just had to press battle button in my IS-4, of all unholy abominations, IS-4!

    ~20k combined for HT-15, first heavy match of the day.

    1. sohojacques
    2. CandyVanMan


      Thank you, really didn't expect anything good out of pressing battle button in my IS-4, mostly did it to troll my platoon mate

  6. 5Ud9JRj.png

    So this just happened.
    Type 5 seems to work better when your team is utter dogshit and you get to face brawl all the enemies solo at the end, because you are too fucking slow to do anything in time.

    18k combined for HT-15, which I skipped like a fucking moron, and therefore didn't count as it was a loss, with ace wanker.

  7. What's the best TD for TD-8 (5x hp in damage) for Obj. 260?

    I need to do either that, TD-15 or MT-15 to get the bloody thing, but I play like dogshit the second I start to think about any missions.
    I have played a few battles with Hellcat trying for that mission, but never seem to get any tier 8 battles, and the few I have got have been over too fast to farm any damage.

    1. dustygator


      SU-100 is the most common recommendation: 650 hp with 390 alpha. I'm pretty sure it's what I used to get the same mission for the T-55a

    2. CandyVanMan


      Yeah, I'm starting to consider it just for the mission, Hellcat's alpha and dpm is just dogshit, having trouble getting damage fast enough, and don't have the patience to wait for juuuuuust the right battle.

    3. kolni


      I used Strx S1, got a permafarm which is bound to happen when playing that type of tank and EZPZ










  8. God damn it, was bored due to corona, and went on official forums.

    I'm unable to avoid shitposting there, just hope they only ban me from the forums. 
    Life is struggle.

      I tired to apologize to the WG mods, but I don't think they even read it...

      Here are my 5 strikes, at least 2-3 of them are complete bullshit

      1st - 10/17/2016

      Nope this idiot makes TanTan look Unicum.

      But on that subject, TanTan should have been banned a year ago for SPAM.  How can you type that same crap every game for thousands of games and not get enough reports for some action

      2nd - 2/2/2017

      WOT and WOWS both just crashed.

       Immigrant Ban in progress

      3rd - 2/24/2017

      When did you buy that account?  Recent WN8

      4th - 8/29/2019

      Global Warming is a myth, but the POS-In-Chief will gladly nuke it for you as it hits Florida.

      5th - 4/12/2020

       ARE you F-ing kidding me? The DAILY Celebration mission expires at 11PM?


    3. CandyVanMan


      Dear Player,

      Please note that a recent post you made violates our forum policies:


      That's quite a self contradiction, you can't be both pro arty and sane, that's not how it works.

      Arty is quite obviously broken in this game, it can't be denied by anyone with the capacity for logical thought.

    4. SchnitzelTruck


      I see they're still handing out bans for anything that isn't hugs and kisses. I received a temp ban for "lol" once as it's unconstructive.

  9. What is consistency?


    1. Gashtag


      Your consistency isn't in game performance, it's in your patience. Finding the will to live through five games in a Löwe deserves sainthood. 

    2. CandyVanMan


      Löwe is awesome, though I was tilting super hard, so that didn't help...

    3. Fulcrous


      What deserves sainthood is playing this game.

  10. What the actual fuck is this shit?

    2. nabucodonsor


      Cut him some slack he has less than 2k games. Then again if he is a reroll...

    3. CandyVanMan


      I'm pretty sure he's botting, it's not possible to get to tier 8 without having learned enough to at least fire one shot that does damage per battle.

      I refuse to believe that.

    4. nabucodonsor


      The answer may suprise you XD.

      But yeah you are probably right

  11. Shattered my ankle, shit fucking hurts, yo, especially when I'm lucky enough to have a paradoxical reaction to morphine and codeine...

      Good luck, mate.  Glad you've got some other options available to you.  Too many pain meds are bad, true, but living in pain actually makes the healing slower.

    3. arthurwellsley


      Best of luck with that. Make sure you have a surgeon who has done whatever op you require a few times before. I completely ruptured my left ACL March 2016. Six weeks pre-operation physiotherapy, then nine months physiotherapy afterwards and skiing again on 28th December 2016. Good luck with the physio. Take it gently at the beginning, but there is a right time to push hard.

    4. Gashtag


      I've honestly looked at this for 10 minutes and still can't figure out what's your ankle and what's your foot... Hope you get well soon mate


  12. Need some christmas spirit in here.

      We'll have to get you on discord then.

  13. Congrats America, the circus is now run from the monkey cage.

  14. Does ugliness of wallpaper correlate to skill level at tanks?

      thats not even the worst one :^)

      though I have others as well, and thats only on my laptop. my desktop doesn't have any anime wallpapers. 

    3. CandyVanMan


      I meant wallpaper literally, as in decorative wall coverings.

      Was watching Straik on youtube, and he's got some of the most horrendous wallpaper I've ever laid eyes on.

    4. Assassin7


      he live in Russia, modern taste hasn't been invented there yet

  15. According to a recent study, I have the 2nd most dangerous job in Norway...

  16. My first ever battle in the Type 61, pretty much stock.


    1. Deus__Ex__Machina


      holy shit you won a Serb!


    2. TheMarine0341


      zee HAX are real

  17. RNGesus smiled at me, and let me clutch what was unwinnable.


    1. nemlengyel


      Fire for Effect! Nice!

    2. CandyVanMan


      It was more the part where I was alone vs their WZ, Bat and 50B at the end and won that made that awesome.

  18. Got goodies in the mail today :D

      Was on sale, so I couldn't postpone it anymore, saved around 150 eur compared to regular price :D

  19. When there's only reds left alive on both teams.


    1. leggasiini


      When there is two reds alive that both spam AP with 76mm howitzers at 50mm of armor...

    2. CandyVanMan


      That was painful to watch, I only managed to watch half o.O

  20. 9 months ago, I had surgery to fix some torn ligaments in my right shoulder. Today I did my personal best in benchpress :D

    1. Medjed


      i fucked up my shoulder 6 years ago when i was playing handball and today it hurts like a bitch lots of times in the gym

    2. CandyVanMan


      Know that feeling, took 7 years before I got my shoulder fixed.

  21. Should I beard up for winter?
    That is the question.

    2. Monkey


      When in doubt, go beard

    3. Shade421


      I heard some dirty primitive primates allow themselves to be covered in unsightly and useless vestigial facial growths. I don't know why. It looks like they glued road kill to their faces. The only reason anyone should grow a beard is because they don't have a chin. Disgusting face fungus is slightly better looking than a ghastly transition from face to neck with nothing in between.

    4. CandyVanMan


      I have a pretty good chin, but it's cold as fuck up here at this time of year, and I have never really let any respectable amount of hair sprout from my face before. Guess I'll try it, and if it looks shit I can just say I did it for practical reasons.

  22. Whoever ordered this weather deserves a good old fashioned beating.

      Yeah, really close to Hammerfest; I'm working in aquaculture, so I live on a feeding barge half of the year. It's actually pretty chill, and literally chill at this time of year...
