  1. I want to know what bast XP is. As far as I know, I can't get an Egyptian cat goddess as a crew member.
  2. I would guess because the game just isn't that popular outside of Russia, and it's probably going to be more difficult for western publishers to penetrate the Russian market.
  3. Every time I log in, my graphical settings have been undone. All the other changes (battle chat, sound settings, etc.) are the way I left them. Any idea why?

      It's having trouble writing the new settings to your dossier. It could be that there's something wrong with your dossier itself, you can try moving/removing it from C:\Users\[You]\AppData\Roaming\Wargaming.net\WorldOfTanks\dossier_cache and letting the game generate a new one. You'll have to set your settings again, though. You probably want to just move it & put it back in if it doesn't fix the issue.

      Success! Thank you!

  4. I swear the upswings and downswings in this game are worse than poker. I really need to learn consistency, and when to give up on an engagement. 20k battles and I still suck at both.

      I've had 58-59% recent win rate for ages. But for the last week I've been barely cracking 50% despite all my other stats being steady or even above average. I don't think you really know what frustration is until you play WoT.

    2. Daerlon


      For me the biggest improvement in experience of this game was to stop comparing this game to legitimate, predictable, logical games and just do what you can with what it is....

    3. OperatorError


      My recent (1,000 game sample) win rate has fluctuated between 62% and 52%, all with a pretty stable 3.8-4K recent WN8.

      Fuck caring about that nonsense.

      Edit - I mean that I do care about individual wins, but do my best to ignore any tracked statistic of any kind.

  5. Safest place is the official mod hub. Everything there is verified legal. There are a bunch of xvm packages. Don't know if there's zoom out or not.
  6. I want to play tanks, but I'm very tired and I know I'll play badly, then get salty, and not want to play tanks for days. Such a dilemma.

  7. It's pretty, and the shape and angle of the hull makes it look like it could have some formidable frontal/sidescraping armor if the thickness is reasonable. Too bad none of that matters in a Type 5 meta, unless the gun is godlike.
  8. WoT runs on my machine at 100+ fps. Replay files, whether my own or downloaded, run at 10-15 fps, which is pretty nauseating. Anybody have any idea why, and what I can do to fix it?

    1. Folterknecht


      Install a monitoring tool like Afterburner to check clockspeeds (CPU + GPU) and CPU core usage ingame and in replays.

  9. That might be an advantage, if people weren't familiar with the weak spots, except the weak spot on the T95E6 is glaringly obvious and exactly where every player who's made it as far as tier 6 would expect it to be. You could show the tank model to 100 random WoT pubbies and 95% of them would be able to identify where to shoot it even if they'd never seen or heard of it before.
  10. An extremely satisfying end to my Caernarvon grind. What a lovely tank this is. Definitely a keeper.


    1. Cronk


      TFW they buffed it shortly after I finished playing it. :notlikethis:

    2. KruggWulf


      It puts the smackdown on them bitch ass pubbies.

    3. king_spaniel


      Man, I played that tank years back when it was a flaming hot POS.  But I do constantly hear stories of how improved it is since then, so kudos to you that you got to enjoy it.

  11. Well, this is a new one. My own team giving me shit for firing premium rounds at a Type 4 heavy, in my tier 8. Because I'm a "gold noob shitter." Apparently I should just "aim at the cheeks," because a <20% chance to pen is apparently acceptable to muppets.

    1. StormCrowReaperManyHats


      See on EU I could understand that because EU is special but NA I don't get.

    2. Gr1nch_1


      Gold nub go flank

    3. Haswell


      Reply that unlike them, you are not poor and can shoot prem all day long.

  12. Glad I came back for a second session this evening. First round was 30% WR, 1300 dpg. Took a break, got my head right, tried again. Second session, 100% WR, 2550 dpg. I'll take it.

  13. Trying to do LT15. Get Prok for the first time in weeks. TD decides to charge up behind me in my spotting bush and open fire. We're both vaporized.


  14. Leo 1 on-track on NA. Is it finally time to buy the Indien Panzer, some 2+ years after I unlocked it?

    1. kolni


      the only reason to play that line at all is to play the pta which is pretty decent for a t9, but literally everything in the line is a massive middle finger from russia to germany for the past 

      or as serB puts it: 


    2. Darvek


      Yeah, I was looking at the PTA more than the Leo 1 or the IP. But I'm not sure the PTA isn't just a worse Patton, and I already have a Patton. Kinda why I stopped going up the line at tier 7 in the first place.

    3. kolni


      PTA is currently better than the Patton thanks to final acc and HEAT pen, M46 is not a good T9 anymore

  15. So, just got this recently. Kinda hating it. Come here to find that at some point, apparently, it got nerfed. Because the old threads say how good the gun handling is, and his more recent (only a year old!) bit says it has deplorable gun handling, which has also been my experience. Was this thing ever actually OP enough that the gun handling needed to be made this bad?
  16. Well, that means that in at least 15%, maybe 20% of your games you get to play aggressively. Assuming there aren't 3 arty on the red team. Or O Hos. Ok, so like 5% of your games. Still, 5% is better than nothing, right?
  17. T54 mod 1 maybe. Nobody ever has enough Russian medium crews. That's what I got in the trade-in. Haven't played it yet, unfortunately. Trying not to spend the credits I'd need for equipment. So many crews though... 4 at tier 10 (eventually), 3 at tier 9, assuming I like the 430 when I finally take it for a spin.
  18. Church III is so preposterously good for those silly "win and finish in the top 3" missions. You don't even really need to have a good game, just 'not dreadful' and the xp coefficient does the rest.

      @Haswell what powercreep? ON t5 there is none

    3. Haswell


      Church 3 was pre-T67. Also T6 creep from Japanese box tanks.

    4. wes


      The new MM makes sure you always have some poor t5 folks for target practice. It's funny many t6 mediums incl cromwell thought they can kill me with ease and stood still trading shoot with me, and then run in panic but too late.

  19. Last 30 or 40 games in WZ 111 1-4 have been an utter disaster. How can such a comfortable tank perform so poorly in my hands?


  20. Is there any good reason to pick up the top engine on the WZ 111 1-4? Spending 46k xp for 20 horsepower doesn't seem like a judicious use of resources, and I haven't noticed that I need more module health.

    1. RC_Tank


      I haven't, but I'm keeping the tank so I will eventually.

  21. Depends on what you play, but sure. I mostly play 8s, 9s and pref 8s in the evenings and late nights.
  22. Most of these dudes suck, a lot, but this is for the platoon. Between them they did the one shot of damage that you can see to red tanks, but over 1500 damage to green tanks. The T20 got banned for his contributions while the O Ni one-shot a light tank (and because he's high alpha, no ban because WG logic), so between them they took out 3 friendly tanks. The O Ni then suicided, 4 friendly tanks down. But he wasn't done there, this pervert (the one who wasn't banned) sat in chat calling people n****r. So, yeah, fuck those guys.
  23. I don't understand rerolls. That's a lot of time and money to waste for vanity. But I really, really don't understand rerolls who pad to green stats and teal WR in low tier tanks.

    2. simba90


      To get focused by arty more. It baffles smarter minds than mine.

    3. DirtyACE7


      When your vanity and sense of self-worth outweigh your reasoning abilities. Nevermind shitty rerolls, what about all those legendary 45%ers who perceive themselves to be the greatest gift to the game.

  24. The upcoming Chinese New Year missions give you bonus XP for every Raider medal you get. In 18k battles, I have exactly 0 Raider medals, and I don't think I'm at all unusual in this respect. What are they thinking?

    2. Darvek


      Dude! That means if you play like 14k games this weekend, on average, you'll get an extra 800xp or so.

    3. Assassin7


      Yup, 0 raider medals.
