  1. Would you say the game has improved over the last 6 months? 

    I think it might be the first time the reception seems to have trended upwards for WoT since like 2014

      I think the game has gotten better the last 6 months.

      Field mods was a nice QOL improvement, the last few maps added have been above average, recon mode or whatever it's called has been pretty nice, hell, I even like the addition of tier 9 for frontlines.

      I've played more this fall than at any other point since probably 2014.

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

      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.

    Spotgetto 65 3-mark completed. Used a bounty LNES + bond optics + slotted CVS build AND a bounty LNES, bond vstab, bond vents build. Pretty grand way to enjoy the tank. It gets OVER 40% camo on the move once you max out the Field Modifications, plus you get 527 view range. And the gun is slow to aim, but accurate enough to scavenge. On maps where there's too many LTs or it's brawl mode then swap to the vstab build and play as normal (except you're really strong at clean-up because 41% camo moving and 482 VR). Not expensive either, because it's a pain to switch to HEAT.

      Very nice.

      Tried the stealth build on Standard B, didn't work out for me that well, felt the gun was simply too lacking.
      I still have it as my secondary config, in case I get a map and team setup where I can break the game by taking on the role of light tank.
      Ended up using bonused CVS, bounty optics and bounty stabs for my main, as the filthy viewrange and CVS really did add quite a bit to my spotting.

  5. Last week I was chat banned. This week I am chat banned again. I can see a pattern here. 

    But I am surprised how I managed to get the second ban. When I wasn't even playing on patch day. =-

  6. Is there a way to get universal blueprints from national ones? I thought it was but I might be stupid. I have too many national ones and too few universals

    1. CandyVanMan

      CandyVanMan

      @hazzgar I think you can only convert from national to national.
      You can use Swedish blueprint fragments for unlocking Czech, at a cost, iirc.

      You also ran out of them?

      I think you can only do conversion for nationals.
      Was planning to blueprint straight to the tier 10 Czech heavy, but ran out of universals before reaching the tier 9. 
      Ended up using some free xp to unlock the rest for it, as the tier 8 looked kinda meh.

      @hazzgar well, I wouldn't joke about some guy/gal with severe autism that can't function on their own, but I don't see it as an insult in the context of my post.
      I know a few high functioning autists, and they are all cool with joking about it, it's not like they get any more or less autistic either way, though I avoid using it as a derogatory term.

    is this game still shit? Wanna see if my 400k exp from ages ago are worth using on something

      I don't think the game is shit, mostly just the playerbase.

      It does transition into a more continuous storyline later on.

      But in the end people have different preferences, though having different taste than me is of course objectively wrong.

      Yeah, the original LOGH OVA is probably the best piece of media I have ever watched, it's that good.

      hazzgar is speaking truth here, especially regarding Eva, most overhyped series after Game of Thrones.

      It seemed amazing for angsty teens in the 90's, but it's really not that good now that I'm an old man, as I rewatched it quite recently.

      Just don't fall for the moe shit, that is literal cancer.
      Would suggest Samurai Champloo, Cowboy Bebop and Legend of the Galactic Heroes, I think they should be a good fit for you.

  16. To the top purples here. Did you ever stop feeling bad? I've been a 3100wn8/61% wr player. Dropped to 57%/2700 and climbing back up but I feel like a total scrub.

      Talking 300 two-stroke here, they are only a few kg heavier than MX bikes.
      Perfect for my area, as we have a ton of legal trails on the tundra, and most are closed to cars, which is a bit sad as I just bought a pick up truck.

      Used to ride MX when I was younger, and it's actually less scary than technical DH riding, a big crash might be worse, but the chance of crashing is so much lower.

      Yeah, the Levo SL cost the same as a good used car, pretty crazy shit.

      You could get a brand new KTM or Husqvarna 300 on plates here in Norway for the same price.

      Northern Norway, it's completely illegal to ride snowmobiles how they are meant to be ridden here of course, no fun allowed, but the conditions are good, and I happily pay the fine when I do get caught.

      Madeira is one of the destinations I really want to visit as soon as the world opens up again, will either be Madeira or another trip to Japan.

      I used to have a Giant Glory, but since we have no lifts within 500 km here, I sold it to a friend (who also plays tanks), and got myself an enduro bike instead, as it simply covers many more uses and is less of a hassle to drag around.
      Now I have a very pimped out Last Coal, which has been extremely reliable and versatile, such a good bike for my riding.

      @hazzgarDo you still ride?

      I'm more of a freerider as there's no scene for competing where I live, but I do try to race when I get the chance, though mostly enduro.
      Snowboarding had to step aside for snowmobiling after getting horrible achilles tendonosis, but it's more similar to mountain biking, so it keeps me from getting too rusty during winter.

      There was some (Croatian?) guy I played with in Ideal that also rides, noticed by accident that he also posted on Pinkbike forums.

      Meh, I no longer give a shit tbh, only way to stay sane with missions and marathons.

      To use a pubbie expression, I play for fun.
      That usually means setting some goal for each session, but it's rarely dpg or winrate nowadays.

      I would highly recommend that tank, my favourite commie medium by far, really enjoy it.

      KV-4 is amazing now.

      Unfortunately haven't played it as much as I would like to, due to missions and grinding credits, but might go for marks on it and get back some orders from Chimera missions at the same time.

      I did test this out a bit before getting my most recent ban, but ran out of patience at the end.
      Got banned either for giving helpful tips for how pubbies could self euthanize, or word filter, as spotting missions made me say some naughty words.

      I should probably disable chat tbh, but sometimes it's actually useful.
