    Marduk got a reaction from LoverJoy in Clan tanks, what do I need?   
    50Bs are rare an some callers really love them. (I did.) If we were on maps where I used lots of 50Bs many nights in a row, I could actually run FOXEY out of them. (Foxey, for whatever reason, doesn't have many 50Bs).
     
     
    That is an opportunity. Find a tank that it somewhat rare but beloved and get it.
     
    Heavies:
     
    Common: E-100, IS-7, E5
    Situational but used heavily: T-57, 50B
    Fucking Unicorn (like you NEVER get to play it): The British thing. IS-4.
     
    Meds:
     
    Russians (all are the same really...140 probably better) 
    Batchat.
     
    STB-I/Leo are useful on some maps... with the right player. Tjerry would often rack up 3-4K damage for me on Cliffs in his STB-I but if I sent other players there... I would get 500 damage and a dead tank.
     
    All other mediums can go die in a fire. (OTTER has a caller that likes 50M. I've had VILIN use them against me on Himmesdorf. That makes 2 people ever)
     
    TDs:
    Foch 155 used to be God Emperor. Its pretty trash now.
    268 used to be king. Now the 263's DPM and trolly armor is more popular.
    The E4 gets used for big alpha and nice turret, but its needs to be sheltered and is pretty common. I've never asked for an E4 and not had 20 people ready them up.
    E3 is the rare unicorn. They are awesome and no one EVER has them (mainly cause the grind is aweful)
    WTF-100: Not all that great. To vulnerable to arty in organized play. Some maps use them, but there is always someone that has them.
     
    Arty:
     
    CGC, M53/55 and 261. No really... the other arty is trash.
     
     
    What is more important....... get a tank you do well in. Thats great if you have the 10 most popular CW tanks, but if you suck in them......

    Marduk reacted to EchelonIII in Your opinion on this particular bush for scouting   
    Terrible simply because it's not retard-proof.
     
    Retard-Proof (a.): A spot in which a grossly inferior player can cause you a disproportionate amount of damage or a Pyrrhic victory. 
     
    What's would have been your contingency plan if some random shitlord like that AMX 75 or Bulldog had derped into your position like he very nearly did? If your answer is "eat shit and die" then your position is not retard proof.
     
    Good camo or spotting positions are more often compromised by random shitters wandering in than by good players trying to dig you out, and against those baddies, hard cover or routes of retreat are the answer, not simply camo.

    Marduk got a reaction from The_Super_Soldier in Competition rigging on the NA server   
    You stated that clan wide upvoting is minor transgression of fair play (assuming facts not in evidence)
     
    then said, "don't get all mad about what I do". Implying that your action was a minor transgression also.
     
     
    What you did was WRONG. It was cheating. In my eyes, you are in the good as long as you did that expressly to rub WGNA's nose into the fact that the contest CAN be rigged and WILL be rigged until they unfuck it. That being said, breaking the law to prove the enforcement of said law is crap ass poor, is still breaking the law, and you should be willing to eat your punishment. (which should be a stripping of the prize and really nothing more) Edit: IF the rule change came in 1/2 into the event.....gah... I can't even begin to address WGNA's inability to organize a latrine burning detail.
     
     
    The law here is good. (don't cheat at these contests)
     
    The law enforcement.... like all things WGNA, is terrible.
     
     
    I think you have a pretty good moral high ground to stand on as long as you stay in the, "I cheated to prove how easy it is too cheat and how WGNA doesn't seem to care" area. Moving out of that and getting in the face of Jeeps or E-III, not matter how douchy they get about their point, is I feel, a bad idea. TL;DR: Do NOT get off topic, and your topic is, WGNA IS CRAP AT RULE ENFORCEMENT.

    Gotta agree with crab 100% here. (shocking I know)
     
    KA, discussed EXACTLY this problem in previous contests. WGNA did NOTHING to fix it. He said, "here is the blueprint for 'cheating'*, here is how you do it. Please fix". They did nothing.
     
     
    In the absence of a gatekeeper to stop someone from doing something lame... the best approach is to DO THAT LAME THING AND PUBLICLY GET AS MANY PEOPLE TO DO IT UNTIL IT IS FIXED!
     
     
    So yeah... A  big whatever. I'm much more upset about how WGNA treated jacg than I am about KA's count in and rig. Dumb contests deserve to be broken.
     
     
     
     
     
    *cheating in quotes because I think we all agree it violates the spirit, but it doesn't actually violate any part of the EULA except MAYBE "greifing". Whatever that is. Personally I think 3 ARMED members on my team is "griefing" but whatever.

    Marduk reacted to Private_Miros in Crew Barracks confirmed best way to spend money   
    So, I might have gotten my hands on an XVM camo account.
     
    This guy has 14500 battles, 48.5% WR and 770 WN8 (recent stats 47% and 800WN8 before he abandoned his account).
     
    The account has an IS-7, Obj 140 (with 33% WR after 40 games), WTF E-100, BatChat and T110E5 and an FCM 50t, Type 64, E 25, Slöwe and T34 as premium tonks (as well as a few low tier prems). This is a guy that deals 900-1000 avg damage in tier 10 tanks (except WFT, where he does 1700 because balance).
     
    Anyway, if all goes well, I'll make a 500-game analysis playing on this account, to compare solo matchmaking to my main.
     
    For now, I've mostly been doing account management, because... yikes...
     
    1. tank management
     
    This guy sold, rebought and resold multiple tanks, including premiums. Most notably 112 and JT88 are gone (could have used that JT88, since there is no gold or premium time left on the account).
     
    His average xp, premium tanks, garage slots, etc all point towards heavy premium use during the account lifetime though.
     
    There were 478 modules in his depot. I made about 6 million selling them.
     
    2. consumables maangement
     
    Full HEAT BatChat, APCR Lorraine, basically gold ammo on everything, but often also 15 or more rounds of HE. Nearly no AP. All gold ammo was set on replentishing with gold.
     
    His consumables were interesting. Mostly the premium ones, all also set on replentishing with gold, but never in the same order. Repair kit was sometimes in slot 4, other times in slot 5 and often in slot 6.
     
    IS-7 had the Russian engine overclock thingy, a normal Fe and a premium FE as load out.
     
    3. equipment management
     
    This guy was the proud owner of, I fucking kid you not, 74 camo nets and 42 binocs.
    He did not own a single rammer, on any tank. Main load out was GLD, Camo net, Binocs (never optics) and often the suspension module, most notably on scouts and BatChat.
     
    4. crew management
     
    This is what the titles references too. This guy has 330 barrack spaces. They are full with duplicate and triplicate 100-150% crews. It's as if he never dismissed any crew, and when he rebought a tank, he'd just buy a new crew too. Likewise, all his premium tanks have seperate crews (Lowe has 3 crews, all trained for only it, so did his B2).
     
    As a result, he has only 2 crews with 2 skills and 1 with 3.
     
    Crew skill are halfwat decent, he does favour sixth + camo or sixth + repairs on the appropriate classes. But he has a hard on for clutch turning on the driver. On all the fucking tanks.

    So what you are saying is members on WOT labs forums are giving me wotlabs negative rep points on my Wot Labs greeting post not because there is anything wrong with my post here but for real or imagined activities that occurred on another website. If that is true that is a clear case of abusing the WOT labs reputation point system.

    Marduk got a reaction from thekillertree in Campaign shitter list   
    So Foxey has a list of people that didn't show up with full teams. Its one thing in a landing tournament, but we had people 1 Pz-Ic us in the battle with owner.... when they owned 1 province. WTF?
     
     
    Obviously punishing these shitters is impossible once the campaign is over as they are so terrible they will never have land, or it will be so far north that it isn't worth burning. (Sorry, FOXEY isn't getting off its 6K gold/day to go burn the 1 125g/day province Dad's Hideout 22 holds)
     
     
    You can only attack someone's stronghold every 2 weeks. This yields an opportunity to punish the hell out of clans that made the "confirmed shithead list", you just need 13 other tier I/II clans.
     
    We would all meet on the weekend and pick the targets for the next week. Each clan would provide at least 1 team, if they could all provide 2 teams that would accelerate working through the list of shitheads, but isn't needed. We then take turns attacking and burning down their stronghold, with 14 clans, it would get burnt every night. After 2 weeks, they would have opportunity to atone by posting a sincere apology in CR/D, showing that they understand why we are so damn upset and promising not to engage in such egregious behavior in the future.... if they don't, the burning will continue.
     
    Upside:
     
    You were going to play strongholds anyway right?
    Retribution.
    Seriously... retribution.
    It only takes 15 guys/chicks. This is NOT a terrible burden for any of us who are upset about this behavior... its not like PBKAC doesn't have 60 guys logging in at CW time only to be told that they only have a landing defense. We can "quiet down" the CW map after the campaign a little bit... just all agree on a partition of gold for a bit. Foxey and Otter and PBKAC and -G- and Relic could all snuggle up and just not chip each other... we'd have to fight on LZs and such, but no big deal. We are pissed because we have 100 active members and no fights. Clans with 15 active members aren't upset.
     
     
    Downside:
     
    You might have to alarm clock (3am fight times) some of these shitlords. Personally. I'm down with alarm clocking 2-3 times a week to punish these asshats.
     
    Yankee/Loz/Ziddy(Gya... whoever speaks for cats)/Me/Allu (Granny) (Gabe) (I can't even figure out who runs Otter these days)/CallMeSarge all in a room might cause some sort of terrible black hole to open in the universe.
     
    You will make less boxes attacking STAND than you would beating Foxey (I'm looking at you -G-, stahp burning our shit! ) 
     
    It requires a little work... but only once a week or so to plan so we don't miss coverage. Its not THAT hard.
     
     
     
    Please post here if you would like to join the "I hate people that don't show up for CW coalition". Please note that you must be a land holding clan who I would actually worry about if I saw their name in the battle schedule. PVP-8 need not apply. Must not have a lying scumbag as a commander. Must have a team with an FC willing and able to show up. No -G-, you can't just grab 15 guys and attack someone's stronghold.... ok wait... that actually works for you guys. Everyone not named -G- or Otter needs to bring a real team, with a real FC.
     
     
    Please note: This is only against people that don't/didn't show up for CW during the Campaign 3, on the campaign map. If Otter has a beef with EG over "trolling" them with Pz-Ic on the sandbox map.... you kids work that out on your own.

    Marduk reacted to BoilerBandsman in The sad state of CR/D   
    CR/D used to be/is the beating heart of the NA community.  Before wotlabs, it was the only place where high standards and expectations of skill were maintained before one could spout off about something.
     
    And the whole "you can't post because x" was just a lazy/easy way of rebutting shitpoasters.  Poasting intelligently and/or humorously was always fine regardless of affiliation.  As proof I submit my ~200 CR/D posts while clanless or with SNRK, while having never once gotten the "get out" treatment.  People who whine about CR/D being exclusive are really just whinging that they can't shitpoast wherever they like, just like PLSGO does with wotlabs.

    Marduk reacted to Garbad in Garbad's Chemo Assistant Mod   
    So given the resurgence of cancer, and particularly the battle assistance mod, I thought maybe we should consider making an equivalent tool.  Something like this (I believe this is all possible):
     
    - Show each click on the minimap, along with the reload timer they have (or shots clicked as a bat)
    - Show last known location (same as XVM) with a beam coming out showing which direction they are looking
    - Use tracers to show possible last location (IE, they are in the south east, even if never lit)
    - Going by where they clicked, show on which side of the map they are to help get in cancer free cover
    - As you load in, have a deal like sela's strategy maps showing common cancer camping locations and arty safe places
    - Automatic 10x reporting of all cancer team damage and drowning themselves.
    - Perhaps automate filing support tickets as well.
     
    Maybe other ideas.  But you see the point.  First, punish cancer for griefing when possible -- specifically punishing them for drowning themselves.  WG has said this is illegal but does nothing to prevent it.  Second, mass reporting of the few cancer diehards might help purge them over time.  Third, the tools for predicting where cancer is, how long they have between shots, and so on might make it easier to avoid the sky mr sexiiness.  And I think all of this would be legal and feasible.
     
    Thoughts?

    Does anyone else find it funny that Chai and Bulba rushed to this thread to defend themselves against the coalition I'd like to form to burn down Dad's hideout 45 and STAND's strongholds?
     
    Why in God's name are you even involved in this thread?
     
     
    If Foxey had that big of a problem with CHAI or BULBA, we wouldn't need to get vengeance via a convoluted stronghold mechanism.... we would just look for you on the main map and attack you.
     
     
     
     
    Not on the shitter list:

    Hoho,
     
    Sending you and your 8 subclams chips into the same territory is pretty shady. But since 99% of the time, Chai is winning those fights... who am I to call foul. Even Foxey beat Otter once. I don't have a dirty hat. I don't even know what a dirty hat is.

    Oh hello shitlord.
     
    We would certainly explain why their stronghold was being burnt, as without that information, how could they craft an appropriate apology?
     
    I don't expect anyone from Dad's Hideout to understand english comprehension, reading, or why we are fucking pissed off that you didn't show up for fights.
     
    And trying to claim that you aren't responsible for Dad's Hideout 6 is a load of shit. Someone should have told those asshats to go get on the sandbox map
     
     
     
    Master,
     
    Bulba isn't on Foxey's list.... but if you played the campaign for the express purpose of getting campaign tanks and didn't show up for fights thus screwing other people out of their tanks, then yes, you too are a fucking shitlord and should be punished in anyway we deem possible or effective. If you no showed against Otter, I expect them to come burn your Mexican hacienda down around your ears.
     
     
    Carbon,HoHo,
     
    I don't believe what anyone tells me. I've been no showed and 1 showed about 4-5 times in this campaign. FOXEY has screen shots of everyone who fucked us and we will have long memories about this. I'm currently 3008 on the alley of fame because of real life bullshit causing me to miss 2 weeks. I've got soldiers I'm trying to get the tank for that are going to miss because asshats like STAND and Dad's Hideout 4021 can't be fucked to show up for their chips. You seem awfully sensitive to an accusation tossed at complete shitter clans and assholes.... I seriously didn't have CHAI or BULBA in mind when I posted this. From what I recall we tossed many times into the massive gold pot encounters between CHAI,OTTER,RDDT, and whoever else was near. Those were fame point gold mines.
     
    But hey... if you insist the shoe fits your foot...I'm not going to stop you from putting it on.

Foxey and Otter and PBKAC and -G- and Relic could all snuggle up and just not chip each other... we'd have to fight on LZs and such, but no big deal. We are pissed because we have 100 active members and no fights. Clans with 15 active members aren't upset.
     
     
    Downside:
     
    You might have to alarm clock (3am fight times) some of these shitlords. Personally. I'm down with alarm clocking 2-3 times a week to punish these asshats.
     
    Yankee/Loz/Ziddy(Gya... whoever speaks for cats)/Me/Allu (Granny) (Gabe) (I can't even figure out who runs Otter these days)/CallMeSarge all in a room might cause some sort of terrible black hole to open in the universe.
     
    You will make less boxes attacking STAND than you would beating Foxey (I'm looking at you -G-, stahp burning our shit! ) 
     
    It requires a little work... but only once a week or so to plan so we don't miss coverage. Its not THAT hard.
     
     
     
    Please post here if you would like to join the "I hate people that don't show up for CW coalition". Please note that you must be a land holding clan who I would actually worry about if I saw their name in the battle schedule. PVP-8 need not apply. Must not have a lying scumbag as a commander. Must have a team with an FC willing and able to show up. No -G-, you can't just grab 15 guys and attack someone's stronghold.... ok wait... that actually works for you guys. Everyone not named -G- or Otter needs to bring a real team, with a real FC.
     
     
    Please note: This is only against people that don't/didn't show up for CW during the Campaign 3, on the campaign map. If Otter has a beef with EG over "trolling" them with Pz-Ic on the sandbox map.... you kids work that out on your own.
