  1. I have entered ever single one of the daily ones and site said they were invalid. I tried entering them yesterday at 8PM or something like that... It was before 00:00Ct
  2. Yes because the 279 (e) needs more buffs to it's armor and gun parameters
  3. @RunTheGears08 Thank you so much! I have taken all your points to heart and am trying to improve by increasing my awareness. One point that really makes me worry, is how little I know the sidescrapping methods for 5A, I simply cant seem to rely on the armor for anything :/
  4. My apologies, looks like the link was bad. http://wotreplays.eu/site/4704151?secret=14f7caa7aeba6ef8e87ba50f622a2db3
  5. Hello people, I'm approaching you today asking for some advice on how to play better on this map and overall how to play better the WZ 111 5A I'm gonna add several disclaimers... #1, I'm not... I repeat, NOT, bragging about the damage done on the match, once you open the link, please understand that most of the damage CAME in when the match was already decided, so if anything, it was just "Stat padding" rather than useful damage. #2, I suck really really bad on angling my 5A, I cant seem to prevent getting overmatched or penned at weird angles, I'm looking for some solid advice on this. #3, while I know how to play medium tanks on this map (Going to castle or fighting for castle OR mill) and tank destroyers (guarding mill or castle unless it's an assault gun) I have lots of troubles playing with Light tanks and heavy tanks. I find myself trapped very very often leading to a sudden and hopeless death when I get cut off from support. Lastly... I want to ask people, to please destroy me with your criticism, it's fine if you point out that I'm retarded with shooting OR my over-reliance of gold, I am looking to improve at the game and I won't improve with sweet meek words but with solid pointers and a few slaps of reality. Thank you very much~ Link for the replay: http://wotreplays.eu/site/4704151#erlenberg-star_dust-wz-111_model_5a Edit: http://wotreplays.eu/site/4704151?secret=14f7caa7aeba6ef8e87ba50f622a2db3
  6. I was wondering, right now, as of 1.3 Patch, which tanks can be considered hidden jewels? that is, tanks that people don't normally get because there's optional branches or people skip as fast as they can because they are low tier tanks that don't have their potential exploited by newcomers? So far, the tanks I can think, that can find this type of category, would be tanks that people often overlook or rush through them, like the VK.30.01P being a very versatile tank or perhaps the JagdPz IV with it's 3K DPM
  7. Perhaps the heaviest things we bring to battle aren't our tanks, but our feelings~

      I don’t remember

      Sure, I think that'd be fun. Just send me a message in game. :)

    I was wondering if the end of the road for this tank had a competitive appearance on todays meta, it will be interesting to see what the owners think of this one. Do you folks think it competes against the current CW preffered tanks anyhow?
  10. Now that I see it the title seems a bit racist. I just managed to hit 1601 overall, took me a while and a lot of effort to go from 1390 (2017 january) to 1601 (2018 january) in 4 K matches, not much improvement, so I was wondering about a lot of things while ranking up the color. First off, it seems I traded enormously the WN8 I'm making for WinRate, I know sometimes WinRate is very subjective in a few aspects and many times a lose streak is just inevitable, part of playing this game, what I want to know is what I could do to try to decrease the impact my WR is having without spoiling the increases in WN8, I already try to target dangerous vehicles rather than players (example, kill a top tier KV3 tomatoe if he's weak instead of going out of my way for that T67 super unicum who spams APCR) as well as following lemming trains to push a side instead of dying in a stupid way in 20 secs, the things that I'm seriously lacking is how to trade shots and how to use a tank in an unfavorable environment (like a super heavy in an open map with tons of arty, or a light-medium paper tank on a brawling Ruinberg) so this made me wonder... What exactly, in the unicums view point, separates a light green from a dark green, a dark green from a light teal-from a dark teal-from light purple? i've seen some crazy players having 1200 Overall wn8 and 3600 Recents, so I wonder how do these people suddenly realize they can get good or what they are intrinsically doing wrong? I'm sure this post will be a bit confusing without replays, so if they are really really needed I'm just gonna upload yesterdays session, but that's not the focus of the post, what I basically want to know is, what exactly separates me from the next bracket of players Skill-wise? So that I can focus more on both the WR aspect and WN8 aspect. Probably this post will be a bit missplaced, if I did it wrong, I humbly apologize, have a good day! and thanks~
  11. Perhaps it is just that I'm really bad at fighting it, I was on my jagdtiger and the Badger just straight went through my UFP like it was nothing, I shoot at it at the cupula cheeks and it bounced, I remembered someone said the armor was incredibly tough so I switched to APCR and shoot again to the cheek (now that I looked at the tanksgg model I probs hit just slightly above it) and pierced it, I took shots back of course, I shoot again and it bounced on the cheek, tried shooting again where it penned and it bounced, then pum, I got killed from penning shots on my structure. so yup... The thing it's kinda hard to crack if the LFP is hidden... not to mention the beast has extreme accuracy, good DPM and pretty dank penetration, if the premium round had more power... well......... Then again, I'm pretty bad at the game, so there's a huge chance I just screwed shit up
  12. The only thing that bothers me is that the rewards aren't really exciting (outside of the boosters)
  13. Saw a few of them going around in some matches, it seems nimble enough to make the circle of death, however for some reason one of them actually started getting stuck on rough terrain while circling an IS3, the gun also seemed to shot APCR by default? or at least when I blocked the shell the "APCR" name was greyed out
  14. Sorry for bumping you here Crab, but how do you do a status update? ;-; literally can't find this same bar I'm using on you, in my profile T_T

    1. CraBeatOff


      When you go to the top right menu and click on the profile button does it take to a page that has a white box that says "Write a public message on your own feed" ?

      Its also possible it might not show up on some mobile versions of browsers.

      Thanks for the reply! I annex the two images, one by clicking on my profile, and one by clicking on my username





  15. People tend to play more on the weekends, both for kiddos and adults. So the number of people playing also increases the chances of very random setups, teams, lemming trains, suicide-scouts and the likes. Basically, on these type of weekends people get really frustrated by all the factors mentioned and have a harder time making proper choices because they get tilted. I talk from experience of course~
  16. @TAdoo87 You know what, you got your mouth super filled with absolute truth. I'm gonna go fish in the WOT Replays section, is it too late for me to upload here my replays from this soon to be afternoon matches to get them reviewed? just 2-3 from both tanks, I don't do particularly well on either (aside strongholds and advances) As always, super useful man!
  17. Alright, I will post a few replays about it, I should rephrase it tho, I only have issues with the 50B on Fiery salient. Light tanks and medium tanks are okay, it's just the tall profile of the 50B that sometimes it's difficult to handle in the middle of the map, where the poking happens
  18. I'm not sure if this is the appropiate thread to make such a request. but. I was wondering if players who have had some good consistency at the game could provide me with tapes to study them? I find myself struggling a VERY huge amount on maps where I'm forced to take cities for brawling and where the choke points are compromised of a few heavy tanks, best example is Lakeville, I'm unable to be relevant in the map regardless of what I use, the best that I have managed to do is sit back and wait for them to roll the city so that I can start clipping them, but then, it feels as if I was using my team as cannon fodder, which... Feelsbad... So, if players with good matches could provide replays on the following maps as to what to do , I would appreciate it a lot!. List of maps; Lakeville Mines Fiery Salient Swamp Highway Westfield I do have considered WOT guru but it doesn't has specific explanations on 50B and 12T just rather overall positioning so... Thank you very much! Thanks a bunch!
  19. Two people on KV2's murder a T67 at the start of the match, I proceed to report them, I get screwed from behind until near death, then, they proceed to push me to get killed, of course I couldn't even do a single shot of damage. They also damaged other allies and pushed people around barelly contributing to the game, even worse, they started insulting... On top of that... somehow we won the match... Players are JeFINN and Jancera http://wotreplays.eu/site/3919757#el_halluf-star_dust-tiger_i
  20. it would be nice to join, since my clan hasn't ever been alive to begin with haha, problem is, I don't own any tier X ~ What sort of tanks are currently meta for , 6 , 8 and 10? Good luck with the recruiting~
  21. Sadly, I ended up selling the Tiger 2 out of frustration... It was difficult for me to return to where the action was if I screwed up (among other circumstances) so I ended up straight up selling it :/ Perhaps one day I will take it back and attempt to do it right, but I doubt such day is any close, right now I'm having huge issues with my win rate, I'm trying to not be so tunneled visioned but I got troubles with assessing the map circumstances, I will add some replays whenever I get super bad games.

    Hello right now I'm having huge issues playing this tank, it would be nice if anyone could give me a few pointers. Lately it seems I get difficulty on positioning myself on places where I can do damage, then I end up getting swarmed by arty fire and mediums, which ends my match. If anyone could give me some advice or replays to check on them, that would be awesome, thanks!
  23. I have met a few Youjo members, specially "TheReturned" very friendly person, he is an awesome guy. Hopefully one day I manage the stats to get into one of the divisions of the clan.
  24. I have a question regarding VR, skills that affect it, Camo and also a question of Russian T-X mediums. First off, when you buy coated optics and the such, they state the maximum view range is around 435Meters or 445? I tend to mix these two numbers, so, basically my question is, if you have a tank with base 400VR and you buy an equipment, basically it caps at the limit the equipment states right? SO, what happens if I also get skills that affect VR like Recon or Situational Awareness? Will it get further from the limit or it will still be capped at the 445M limit thing? This is important for me because, tanks like the AMX 50 120 have good VR so putting equipment usually maxes it, so giving it crew skills would seem useless? I hope my question is coherent. Also, how does camo exactly works? many times I find myself sitting behind a bush (and bush isnt transparent) I shoot and get detected even tho all my crew folks have camo skill, does that mean someone in the other team has super VR and I simply get into their range? I also read shooting decreases your camo values? The last question is, Russian tier 10's, right now, for current meta purposes and overall PUB enjoyment, which one is more viable? Obj 140 or the T62A? Thanks a bunch!
