  1. I've been trying to do some arty missions. For the life of me, I can't see the appeal of this class. There is literally zero skill involved. Some games I nail light tanks with bullshit across the map snap shots, some games I cant hit jack shit or fuck all no matter how I aim. I have no influence over games, all I do is piss people off. The only real "skill" I use is map awareness and I developed my map awareness by playing actual tanks. I look at the map and move away from collapsing flanks. It confuses the shit out of a lot of players. Friendly arty can't understand how I am still alive and enemy tanks who reach the base can't find me because I moved 500 meters. I don't even think counterbattery is a real threat to artillery, in 33 games I have been shot at blind by arty once. This class is the godforsaken skill crawl space of world of tanks and anyone who likes to play it is an oxygen thief.

      That thing about being right on top to see tracers is just fucked.  Most of the time no one indicates they have been hit or from where so you need to scan the likely spots.  Just staring at a likely spot hoping that someone shoots on your reload is another level of the WG embrace of random. 

      Arty missions are a Lovecraftian nightmare of dread and hopelessness.

  2. Which is the best T8 premium light? Besides EBR, ofc... Picking HWK 30, ELC and T92,  but they all seem mediocre...

  3. OMGZ! I been chatbanned for insulting assholes, fucktards and asswipes in game.  WTF am I gonna do now?  Take out on my wife I guess ...

  5. Lol. The high risk spot play on highway literally breaks the map if u have enough td's. Enemy has to either forgo town or die. 

    11k combined in an LT432 is nice.

  6. I was steadily improving performance wise, and then suddenly since the beginning of the week, I drop to half the performance up to then in all kind of tanks... It's like I forgot everything I had relearned.

      On NA the teams actually got redder over the past week.  I've had to resort to spamming mid-tier RU meds and the T-64 to maintain sanity.  T34-whatever, T44, T54 Mod 1 are all effective against nitwits with no vision skills or equipment. T-64 is so wrong it's right

      Tier X  has been so nonsensical I realized it was the perfect time to knock out some artillery missions, so I dusted off the Bat arty.  Evil, I know, but it is satisfying to push back against S.Conq spam.  Leopard PTA can be a little relaxing as long as the steamroll lasts over 4 minutes.

  7. The T54E1 was reworked by a fair bit and feels like a weird tank now. The gun handles a lot better, you don't need a lot of APCR (but nice to have), but the fact you have heavy mobility and M48 armor (read = bad) is pretty off-putting.

      PS: it's also impossible to add or remove equipment to or from the Crusader: http://forum.worldoftanks.com/index.php?/topic/625353-19-crusader-still-broken/

      That's truly impressive.  How in the world do you break a universal mechanic like that for ONE tank?  Like seriously, how?  So broken as to have no ETA on a fix?  Is there COBOL buried somewhere deep in the code base?

  8. Mines and Siegfried line is my longest standing set of disabled maps so far. Found the ones for me I think.

      Minsk and Kakakov.  Fuck that shit.  Couldn't even remember their names as they've been banned since  the launch of the feature.

    vod, 2 e50 games in there otherwise all pta

    got the replays as well if smb wants, (ask)

    streaming went fine - a little too much lag toward the end to keep me from getting mad at it so ended kinda meh, first two hours are pretty gud

      Thanks for this Kolni.  About half way through.  Ruinberg  was really interesting - I see I play too high up the ridge.  PTA is such a fun tank at T9

  10. Skill4Ltu prefers the T-62a gun for the T-54, he argues the lack of gun handling on the 140 gun, means you rely too much on heavy sprem. Gonna try it when I get the XP later today, bounty rammer should make up some of the difference. I'm hopeful.

  11. Just watched Blackadder... Low and behold a wild @Private_Miros appeared in it. Made me chuckle a bit finally knowing what that photo is.

      A tad...

      But altogether valid as criticism  of military pop history.  

      Still, it's supposed to be a comedy. Next someone will complain that Queen Elizabeth was not accurately portrayed in the second season and there is no historical proof that she employed a handmaid with an udder fixation.

      As an aging lover of British comedy all I can say is Blackadder is a real treasure.  All should try it.

  13. Full APCR Hellcat is the most disgusting tank that I have ever played and I totally regret being cheap in the past

      Jackson is remarkably effective.  It can act like a slow hull-down medium when required.  Hellcat is more fun though.

  14. Frontlines progress does seem much faster this time around. 

  15. Hey,

    In order to be more constructive and prevent arguing in threads, which I should not be doing and will try not to, I have ignored the 3 that irritate me and trigger these events. As to not piss off Enroh and Has, I also added 4 more, to be sure. Seeing that I may irritate others as well, I entreat those to do the same and ignore me. Should be problem solved.

  17. I'm actually getting worse at the game the more I practice...

    1. j_galt

      j_galt

      Actually, it is the game getting worse at you.  

      The overwhelming numbers of red and orange players at Tier X, and IX since before Christmas is mind boggling.  Those tiers feel a lot like tier IV now. 

      There is a certain wackiness to it at times that is amusing.  Watching two tanks trying to out-cap (from behind) the opposing team's three while the dead peanut gallery chanted "CAP! CAP!" was a highlight from last night.  That, and a rental Tier X  being piloted by a human being with 1k games and a 43% W/R.

    is this time for me to come back to farm them for 6k dpg/100 games

  19. Dear jesus this dynasty fight shit has made TX literally unplayable

      I was having trouble with that due to tomato collapse disease.  Obj 705A was fun though, shoulda played it more I guess.   T100LT was working due to SEVERE lack of vision on both teams

  23. This is a friendly reminder. It's Christmas time so don't make any aggressive plays expecting any sort of support or intelligence from your teammates. This is mostly a reminder for myself but I figure others could benefit. The teams out there are horrific. 

  24. nevermind, spamming HE, getting better results.

      Occasional HE spam can be oddly stress reducing on bad nights.
