  1. Best game I've had in a while. Standard B with full stealth setup. Killed last tank in our cap with ~30 seconds left on the clock. http://wotreplays.eu/site/6339883#westfield-candyvanman-prototipo_standard_b
  2. Almost seems like HE pens do less crits than AP pens nowadays. Something with really high rof and high module damage for caliber is probably the best bet for crits today, but it's going to be extremely rng dependent. Would definitely skip that mission now.
  3. I'll probably get one of the large box packs, as it seems to still be good value in terms of gold and prem, but I'm not gonna spam boxes for any tank, I'll get it on sale at a later date if it still looks good.
  4. Prem ammo is insane, but I don't think it will be enough to make the tank that good. Might get it since it looks cool, and it's a burger tank.
  5. 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

      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.

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

  6. Full stealth build was situationally very nice on Standard B. Got me the third mark, despite being on full tilt and making tons of stupid mistakes. Dropped from 94,8% once, and later from 94,96%... http://wotreplays.eu/site/6046985#murovanka-candyvanman-prototipo_standard_b This was just filthy to be honest. http://wotreplays.eu/site/6047000#ghost_town-candyvanman-prototipo_standard_b
  7. If it's correct that HE crits are nerfed even on pens, the best way would probably be something with a high rof gun and deadeye perk. Will be a pain in the ass, but doable with a few tries. Learn where different tanks have their fuel tanks and engine, lighting people on fire will be a huge help.
  8. The mistake I've been making, is that I have gone into the forest, instead of playing the ridge.
  9. Really enjoyed the Murovanka plays, I always go too aggro in the forest, that always fucks me up. Will try playing the field more, and the forest ridge, instead of going in.
  10. How do they consistently manage to fuck that up?
  11. @CraBeatOff Thank for uploading the replays mate, will check them out when I get home this afternoon.
  12. 120 side armor, very nice angles, gonna be good tank.
  13. Lol, 50M this game was big mad.
    Bounced twice on my Sheridan.
    Convo'd me after battle, he seemed a bit annoyed.




  14. Haven't played mine much yet (2 games), but I didn't play it horrible, and I do much better in Renegade, 703, E75 TS, Tiger 2, KV-4 and 50TP Proto. Accuracy really trolls the shit out of me, and it's armor is only strong when hulldown with full depression. 920 burst damage in 3,5 sec is pretty retarded, but I don't enjoy it as much as the ones listed above, mobility armor combination just doesn't work as well for me, and you often can't dump the clip due to long intra. Might turn out to be very good when I get more comfortable with it, but so far it's only good, not really really g
  15. It's not super quick, might slap a turbo on at some point, currently running bounty optics. I'm not that bothered about the mobility, but I did die one game as I wasn't fast enough to make it to an aggro position. Feels more like a heavy than a heavium.
  16. I'm considering it, but unsure about the gun handling, according to tanks.gg it should be quite derpy, but there's no way to try before you buy... In other news, I got myself the tier 9 heavy, and for the one game I played it, it seems to be pretty good. 2-shot autoloader might be the sweet spot between burst damage and downtime, I think I'll enjoy this one. Gun control is decent, mobility is decent, not sure about the armor yet, but I dinged some shots off it, so it could be ok.
  17. 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

      @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...).

  18. They don't really have to do that much to make it not aids, and even make it an improvement over current crew system. Remove elite progression, as that is pure cancer, and remove the ability of instructors to push skills above lvl 10. That's all they have to do to make crew 2.0 a good thing, maybe some minor tweaks to the skills, but nothing big.
  19. WG balancing department can't play the game they are supposed to balance, as 460 alpha on a 2 shot autoloader is fucking retarded at tier 8. What kind of smoothbrain window licker thought this would be a good idea? It will be total cancer for gameplay.
  20. Ran this setup and finally got the 3rd mark on T49. This was my last session in T49, 4.8k combined.
  21. Fuck it, I'm actually a fan of field modifications, increased meme potential. They also said they would look into removing the standard modifications (the flat bonuses for just grinding level), which was the most negative aspect of it, that and 50% camo Borat.
  22. Might actually be one of the best skills in game right now, or so I would think, not sure how much more reliable HEAT got against sides and tracks with the changes. Maybe I should play this game again, reinstalled yesterday.
  23. Just did Coalition-4 with honours and games to spare, it was pretty painless in Progetto 66, I didn't even trash my perfomance in the tank completely, had 2-3 games with <1k damage due to weird team deployments, and 2 games with ~4k damage. Slap on a turbo, and just push typical medium positions, last game for mission, I deleted one Borrasque in the first 2 minutes and severely crippled his toonmate's Borrasque at the same time. It was an extremely toxic and very fun session.
  24. Don't think this will be a huge problem on average, though good players and a few potatoes that is literate enough to read forums might catch on early. Might become meta and even out after a while. To me it would mostly just make the game less frustrating on maps that suck donkey dick to spot on, as I'm running vision builds on all my lights, so I already cause everyone on enemy team cancer on Mali/Prokh.
