  1. Imagine if WG put good players in charge of balance.
  2. 5% of TOG max speed all for the low low price of 600K credits
  3. But E25 memes. Just think of the seal clubbing.
  4. I want to see this in action, but it looks like something that could shake up the meta without adding in new tanks. I hope they limit the shit that the EBR can use because the last thing we need is one with higher top speed and power to weight. I see some real meme builds coming out of this tho. like a maus that doesn't take stun damage at all or an E25 that keeps almost all its camo while firing. Overall I am wary of this going the way of the ammo re-balance, but hopeful that it shakes up the meta in a positive way.
  5. I unlocked the Char Futur 4 and holy shit the gun is good. The camo is 33.41 stationary, 25.78 on the move with BIA and vents but no food/directive. The 4 second unload is something you really do have to work around.

      @Kymrel yeah, the magazine reload is a bitch. A shorter burst more often would be a good change. To late now tho.

      @kolni The standard pen is so great I haven't even touched the gold shells yet, but thats good to know.

      I think its a good side grade from the BC 25T AP. You trade unload speed and magazine capacity for penetration and a slightly faster reload.

      @HowitzerBlitzer That sounds... disturbing. 

  6. https://www.wikihow.com/Make-a-Unicorn-Horn Follow instructions. Tape to forhead.
  7. I don't disagree that the nerf itself is a bad idea in its current iteration, but the reasoning behind it is quite sound. On the most populated server 25% of the tanks in tier 10 match making are progetto's, and if you ad in the 430U it goes up to 42%. I wouldn't be surprised to see games of just those two tanks. That is a serious problem for WG that they have a strong incentive to fix. I think the fix in question is pretty dumb, but they are trying to fix an actual problem. Admittedly the problem isn't a problem for us, and the solution is a problem for us, but we're actually seeing WG try to fix a problem. They haven't tried to fix a problem since patch 9.18 gave us 3-5-7. I don't even know when they successfully fixed a problem last.
  8. Cromwell is used in tier 6 skirmishes the most. The T-34-85 is also popular.
  9. Tiers 5-7 are pretty great learning environments. Tier 1 is not a tier to keep playing at pretty much no matter what, and tiers 2 and 3 are brutal to new players. If you want to actually learn how to play then push up to tier 5 and 6 as fast as you can. look for codes that give days of premium and XP personal reserves and use those to grind out lower tier tanks in a few hours. Completing the tutorial on a new account should give you a free tier 6 tank token. the Russian KV-2, T-150, and T-34-85, the British Cromwell, and Italian P43 bis are all great tier 6 tanks to get started with. If you have questions don't be afraid to ask, everyone here is really friendly.
  10. So I did a short Reddit browse and now the Progetto nerf makes a lot more sense. Apparently 25% of all tier 10 tanks played are Progettos on the RU server. In my own NA server experience I almost never see more than one of the things, but if it is 25% of the total number of tier 10 tanks played then holy shit WG does need to do something. As for the 430U nerfs it still reeks of the same sort of "nerf" they gave the Type 5 when they made one of the hatches on the front only 270 mm thick. I think a bit more of a hit to the 430U would be a good idea, but I'm absolutely baffled by the Progetto stats on the RU server and I have no idea how to go about fixing it without massive nerfs to the vehicle. I think Wargaming is in the same boat in that regard. On the other hand the whole situation is somewhat reminiscent of previous metas like the 268v4 and Type 5 metas. I wonder if similar numbers have appeared in the past? Were there any other tanks that just flooded the MM like the Progetto does on the RU server?
  11. Oh thank God WG finally did something about that non Russian tank. Can't have an auto re-loader that is good other than the premium ones. I hope they nerf the shit out of the Centurion AX next. Give it a 17 pounder or something.
  12. You're probably in a similar position to where I was about 2-3 years ago so I am speaking from personal experience. Here a few things I did. Critique your gameplay. Harshly if you have to. I did this mostly in battle, but the best players will often watch their own replays to figure out even the smallest mistakes. Look for the big stuff first. Where things went wrong. When you lost HP for no good reason. When and where you die. Look for consistent factors over multiple battles. Never blame your teammates for consistent mistakes. You are the only constant factor over any significant number of battles. Accepting this now will help you grow as a player. Shitty teammates cost you games, but not enough to make a dent in your win8/winrate over thousands of battles. Play for fun. I know this is pretty typical, but most players play worse when they are angry. Angry players tend to play more aggressively, take bigger risks, and generally make easily punishable mistakes. If you're mad at tanks, take a break. Try 3 marking a tank. 3 Marking isn't just something unicums do. It is an excellent learning experience. 3 marking teaches you consistency so get out your favorite tank and push yourself in it. Get out of your comfort zone. Kinda the opposite of above, play tanks you are not super comfortable in. If tier 9 or 10 isn't your thing, try it. You may find a tank you love and you will learn a lot by playing in tanks that push your limits. Ammunition choices. Shoot ammunition that will work. If you see a superheavy, shoot gold at it. Don't waste your time trying to hit the hatch on top of a type 5 when you can press the 2 key and go right through the front. Glass TD asking for a paddling? Hit that sucker with HE and get some extra damage. Shooting the right shell at the right time will greatly improve your damage per game. Learn armor models. some tanks have really easy to exploit weaknesses or complete BS armor schemes. Tanks.gg is a great resource to learn armor models and compare stats of tanks. Finally be patient. It takes time to improve. This is a lot of what I did. It took years to drag my stats out of the green and into the cyan/teal zone, but it isn't impossible. The first 10k battles I played I was a red shitter, but now I can play at a sub-unicum level with enough coffee or alcohol. If you're into watching livestreams, there are a couple of really good threads on good streamers to watch and @kolni (a washed out WoT god) recently started streaming.
  13. What part of last week don't you understand? As a good Wargaming customer I cant go more than 10 days without another russian, derpy, idiot proof heavy tank. I just hope they will put it behind some sort of absurd paywall too.
  14. Why not. We haven't seen a new Soviet heavy tank since last week.
  15. does the back of the turret look like a T100 lt turret to anyone else?
