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

  2. 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 ...

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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?

  7. 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

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  12. 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. 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.

  16. 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

  18. 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

  22. 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. 

  23. nevermind, spamming HE, getting better results.

    1. j_galt

      j_galt

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

  24. When looking at GB MT line I am annoyed.
    The balance problems are very clear.

    Pen rebalance.
    85mm BM something gun from T-34 85 is removed, but the original gun gets the exact same stats (no change). Alpha is moved to 200.
    Alpha of 76mm & 75mm is increased, tier 6 & below HP is increased. And so your precious 17 pdr can move up in alpha to something like 170.

    Comet (t6) - comparable to E8
    Cent1 (t7) - high dpm, high pen, good handling combination with panther armor (its fine if you decreep pen), stock panther armor
    Cent Early (t8) - current Cent 5/1 with historical turret armor, has handling and a good ROF. Its not historically accurate but, whatever. 
    Cent AX (t9) - it was never a tier X med to begin with. The armor is strong enough to block tier 8/balanced tier 9 gun but nothing else.
    FV 4202 (tX) - this is hard, 4202 doesn't really have much to sell. Unless you make it a kind of british E-50M I can't imagine how you would hack the stats together into a coherent tank.

    Among other things one of the main problems is WG stopped sticking to sane penetration values. Initially penetration of D-10T (for example) was 175 since 175 was pretty good. Like Tiger 1 88/71 with 175 pen. Hence, Persh 90 HV had 170 since it was 'slightly worse' than 88/71.
    L7 is weird. Its firing standard gold and gets 390 alpha? No fucking way. Decreep HP growth and change its alpha to 280 (at most). D-10T hits 320 with AP, 280 with similar shell. D-54 hits for say, 360 but fires 1 km/s AP. Big performance loss vs L7 against vertical armor. 

    So if we go on this tier 8 medium like STA-1 has say, 167 pen like Hellcat does. Although Hellcat pen is also creep, should be lower. Anyway you see which tier which tank belongs to quickly. 
    Tiger 1 in tier 6 is not a bad idea if you think about balance. Since it requires few extremes. But the problem is in tier penetration is excessive. 88/56 used to have what? 132 AP pen? That was balanced for the tier but not against other tier 8.

    In this alternate balance Cent early would be the high point in tier 8 medium pen. It would combine tier 8 medium DPM, high tier 8 penetration, handling, and accuracy, into one mobile British abomination.
    Tier 9 is basically just reselling the previous tank with a "fuck tier 8" kind of turret. Its hard to make British tanks work since the actual things are pretty... Terrible. Even Chieftain is a viable tier X so long as you fake the gun penetration.


    Although this would be a completely different kind of balance.

    Soviet MT tree would become this:

    (T5 onwards)

    T-34 85
    **the HV gun is gone, but the S-53 or so is buffed to take its place, no harm no foul. Decreep pen & DPM in general. T-34 85 would have a steady suspension, delivers solid firepower. Decreeped pen would be say, 132 like 88Kwk36. Since the buffed tank gun would be heavy tank firepower on a fast (but slow to turn) machine, it would be highly effective. Slow to turn is so it can be more different from light tanks.

    T-43/T-44-122 (45mm sides?

    T-44A (maxed is T-44B), D-10T with 320 alpha is big seller. Its a generally well balanced tank with an excellent gun.

    T-54 (w/o 2stab), lack of 2stab inhibits gun handling but its still good. D-10T is good gun also. Ideally the chassis is changed with penetration mechanics or it retains fake armor. Like T-34 85 its slow to turn, but the acceleration and speed are both very good.

    T-62A, anything better is a criminal addition to the game really, Soviet OP pls no bulli. Mating the D-54 with a high end 2stab, armor, and highest in tier medium DPM is a very powerful combo.


    Other
    M103/Conq get to be more differentiated, carrying the strongest (TD levels) 12cm guns about. T110E5 of course continues that tradition, so it gets its own selling point.

    Really it becomes too different if you just keep going without brakes. 

    A lot of my thinking would smooth out plenty of tanks. I mean that in a literal way of "their strengths and weaknesses will have less overall spread" or something of that kind.

     

    I was just reading a British medium article and thought of this again.

     

    That... And accuracy.
