  1. Well, this might be the most practicable thing (for me) I have read about WoT (on here). Thank you.
  2. Anyone with an idea which off meta tanks could work? Want to play around the bond limit. At the moment I am giving the E50 Ausf. M a try, Turbo, Hardening, Rotation as a 2ndary config, to ram all those light meds. Seems to be working: I am really really bad at it. 140 - 57% WR, STB-1 - 39% WR. And I played the STB-1 in a CW campaign :/. But only on one map (Westfield, K0 rush).
  3. @Expendable_Lad: you're a far better player than me, so you will do just fine. I gave it a "serious" try for the first time since I play WoT. Currently in the 2nd division. Is it worth it? I guess this is really personal and depends on how you define worth. E.g. I played a clan war campaign and got the Chief but I am utterly shite in it, so in retrospective it was not worth the tank, but it was worth the experience and friendships. Even as a mediocre player I have the feeling that Ranked gives me new insights and teaches me some patience which I can use in Randoms. I
  4. What's the/your scout setup for the Bourrasque? On the LTs I run CVS, Exhaust, Optics.
  5. Playing EBR 75 with one Bour and other medium (STA-2 or Bour.), sitting at 77% WR after 58 battles. One yellow, one green, one blue. Guess it works.
  6. That's a really good theory crafting, but for maybe 1% of the matches? From my perspective, for most platoons this will not be applicable, as the matches in random battles play by themselves, aka the game being called a "15 : 1 simulator" by now. You get put on a red team, your super duper platoon composition and equipment will mean nothing. You get put on a green team, your super duper platoon composition and equipment will mean nothing. Sure, it will help with farming, but I don't see a decisive factor for winning in mismatched teams. Then again, I have to make disclaimer: I haven'
  7. Your problem, not mine. Objectively there are many differences and the common denominator is "bad for the game". Not everything bad is comparable, but hey add some EBR whine and what not to this thread, it keeps it tidy and on topic. I don't like the 15 to 0 roflstomps on either side. This particular bot is a 3x% bot on tier 9/10 with a WN8 of 1 in his S. Conq while being a ~60% WR, ~3000 WN8 bot (?) in a Luchs. The discrepancy is so huge, by now I am considering this to be a former seal clubbing account which got sold to a botter.
  8. Do I really have to explain the difference between a bot and an arty to you? I am not mad at a bot, I am mad because for years this issue hasn't been solved by WG. "It" went there at the start of the battle, made two shots late into the game and got 1 kill. 153 exp for a bot whereas the Strv who made close to 3k got 194 exp. Do you think that this is a healthy ratio?
  9. Please forgive me, feel free to move this to the correct forums section. Anybody care to explain this to me: https://wotlabs.net/eu/player/Luxembourgeois_Bivange Do the bots work so well nowadays at low tiers to give one an overall WR of 55%? Is this the new meta? Stats pad with a bot at tier 1 and play at 3x% at high tiers? WG got to be kidding us all not to ban such accounts for good. Needless to say, the bot got more exp than me.
  10. A responsibility to at least not fuel the fires? The game is burning by itself and the fuel is the money WG gets from us. SirFoch is merely an observer and being the pessimist and sarcastic person that he is, it made him miserable to watch the game burn. All his "whining" can be easily translated to good suggestions of how the game could improve.
  11. Fine, but does it validate statements like "the only good thing he ever did for the community" or the generalization of his fanbase as true? And before someone accuses me of being a butthurt fan, I rarely watched SirFoch. Happy lockdown Sunday to you all.
  12. Don't hit the messenger. Bonus: you sound like you are quite full of yourself.
  13. All of his points are valid. In addition: WoT is a game where you spend 300 € on loot boxes one day and regret it the next day. WG under delivered in 2020 in the core mechanics area, big time: no ammo/hp rework, no crew 2.0, equipment 2.0 is a joke. I don't mind the pay to win power creep that the game has become, but I'd like to have some value for my money spent and not 10 matches in a row where I am on the red team. And being 10 times in a row on a green team is as shit.
  14. I find that the bounty equipment makes the normal equipment somehow "obsolete". I used to play a couple of tanks a session, but nowadays I'd rather play one thank that has the equipment on. What ever my goal is, be it grinding credits or marking a tank, it gets the equipment. That being said, I have a fully upgraded set and I started with vents, rammer, gld for the American t9 arty. hides
  15. What's the deal with this tank in random battles? How does this caliber overmatching mechanic work? I often find myself spamming HE because the gun leaves me down. I run hardening, rammer and stabilizer. Any ideas for different setups?
  16. I am considering to put on full scout equipment on the WZ-120 :-). That's how "good" the tank is in the current meta. Waiting for the buff before I continue gun marking it. As for playing tips: I try to get 1-2 opportunistic shots early with it and then go somewhere where I can brawl.
  17. Sounds good. I spam also full gold. Managed to bring the win rate back to 50% and also ace tanked it. Good training for playing the Somua/Lorraine.
  18. Thank you for the input. I'll put a 2nd gun mark on that tank and sell it, with a ~45 win rate. On EU the line is soon Top of the Tree, so want to cash it in at full price. I find it hard to play without Optics. I went for IRM/Vstab/Optics for now.
  19. How to play this thing in randoms, which equipment? I am struggling with it like crazy.
  20. Myself and my brother are looking for a new clan. We're both greenish/blueish players, German & English (and also some Polish) speaking. I used to be deep blue/light purple but have lost my mojo or the brain cells responsible for that. We'd like to do more strongholds, more platooning and a CW campaign eventually. We have some CW compatible tanks. We can offer commitment, friendliness and willingness to learn. Our core times are from 8 to 11 pm CET during workdays and earlier/later during the weekend.
  21. That being said, I grinded the second phase of Steel Hunter nevertheless fully. That mode has potential, but it needs some serious effort on the side of WG.
  22. I like Frontline too. You can be on the losing side and still make a tons of credits, crew and tank experience. You can grind stock tanks with it, without screwing your stats (if you care). You can use tanks that in the random battles would actually need a full premium ammo spam. If it would be available, I'd play mostly Brawls and Frontline.
  23. The mode is a bad joke. It only shows how incompetent WG is. No balance and no effort / reward ratio. I can't believe that people actually have some pros over Frontline for this mode.
  24. ? Ruski TDs have a spotting button, it's perfectly fine to sit in the back behind any bushes and snipe. I often died in my first tank while everybody was dead, but I had top damage, so your logic is kinda flawed. It is expensive to respawn as it kills the ability timers and there is actual timer that gives the NPCs the time to travel. Once you start losing tanks in this mode, it is too late.
  25. Biggest issue for me: one can't disable the chat for this mode. Or ignore people. Being called a "useless piece of shit" by wannabe unitards in a PvE mode while making top place with just one tank is not funny. The game is a disgrace. Thank you https://wotlabs.net/eu/player/Pantoros & https://wotlabs.net/eu/player/SerEmil for ruining my afternoon. In the last weeks, the amount of times I had to tell people to fuck themselves for being total dicks exceeds good 25 years of gaming.
