  1. I picked up the Leo PTA a few days ago and holy shit, this thing is an animal. 420 alpha, 400 base view range, excellent gun handling, speed, extreme penetration, what more could you ask from a medium tank? Quite possibly my new favorite tank at my favorite tier. I now understand all the rage about this thing. The biggest problem is going to be training up a new crew for the Leo 1 because I don't think I will ever sell the PTA.

    1. kolni


      yeah if you're a medium player you need 3 german med crews, 1 for E50/E50M(back to E 50 after done with E50M) and one each for the Leo's

      Grind them out next FL season is my advice

    2. echo9835


      Cries in mutz.

  2. 7 kills in a skirmish. Something something seal clubbing.


  3. How bad is the stock grind on the Leo PTA? I spent all of my blueprints and free XP to skip the indienpanzer. Should I just safe another 60K free XP or suffer through a stock grind?

      Ok, Yolo and die once you get the 105. Thanks. :p

    3. SkittlesOfSteeI


      It would be funny if it got the same 90mm stats that the type 61 got but it's really just a sad gun

    4. hazzgar


      It's annoying for sure but with food and good amount of gold spam it is still doable. 

      Also with all the +100% exp reserves from battle pass and missions and extra weekend bonuses you will have the gun in no time. 

  4. It isn't even a 5x XP weekend. The 3 stooges on my team are something incredible. At least I got the fucking mission done.


  5. I unlocked the Chimera yesterday and I've played about 25 games in it. This tank actually is a good reward tank. Like the Excalibur it isn't OP, but it provides a novel and interesting tank without fucking it up for everyone it goes up against. Now its time to move on to the Object 260 missions.

  6. 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.

    3. HowitzerBlitzer


      I haven't played since 2017... France got new tanks? wow


      also I read that as Char Futa 4

    4. echo9835


      @HowitzerBlitzer That sounds... disturbing. 

  7. Is it just me or do other people play way better in autoloaders too? I play most of my autoloaders about 500-700 win8 better than single shot tanks. I think its just easy to trade HP with non-autoloader tanks, but maybe there is more to it I am just not seeing.

      I felt autoloaders were stronger 2 years ago when you could actually unload the full clip and not everything can snap at sniping range

    3. Tman450


      the playstyle probably suits you better. They can be way easier to play if you get good at just dumping

    4. SkittlesOfSteeI


      Smashing people at the start of the game is very nice and its pretty easy to get that rhythm going while with single shots I just kind of find myself pew pewing a bit just chipping away at things. 

  8. I just got the IS-2 screen door and it looks like they put a shitty stock jpeg of a fence on the front.

    1. RC_Tank


      yeah it really does, that doesn't give me hope for the future of the game lmao

  9. anyone on the NA server who wants a good team for the Berlin gamemode send me a PM. I've had good luck pulling teams together and getting a winning streak going.

      fuck you dirty sealclubber you are contributing to WoT's demise

      The poor AMX 40

  10. Is it to much to ask Wargaming to let us rebind our repair kit in the PvE mode? IS THAT SIMPLE THING TO FUCKING COMPLICATED FOR THEM TO FIGURE OUT?

    1. PlanetaryGenocide


      yeah what kind of heathen doesn't have rep kit on 5

  11. Is there a way of turning off the God forsaken shitty music for the Brawl mode?

    1. SkittlesOfSteeI


      I have world of tanks completely muted in volume mixer

  12. I found out WeeGee re-enabled grand battles for me. What a profoundly unpleasant experience.

    1. Balthazars


      Yeah, looks like 1.9 re-enabled it for everyone. I had a rude surprise as well. The bastards.

  13. Should we create the zero key memorial book club? If so what book should we read?

      my 40% winrate and constant screaming state otherwise

    4. kolni


      nope he is right it sucks

  17. Wargaming is selling the E-25 on NA. This is a PSA to stay the hell out of tier 5 and 6 tanks for a week or 2.

  18. If you've ever wanted to 3 mark the T95/FV4201 Chieftain, now is the time. I am shooting nothing but HE because reasons.

      12 hours ago, SkittlesOfSteeI said:

      This is so woke. Interestingly enough all the autoloaders except the 105 and at tier 10 work well with HE for example
      Batchat 25HE
      HEVP 50/51
      Foch 1fifHE5

      I think you misspelled the FocHE 155... 


    3. Diriz0n


      You have to have large bore size.

      T57, Emil ll, 5OB, Bat Chat, Foch B....the explosive power is too low.  O dmg HE hits and shitting-the-bed is actually more common than people think, and will not give you a guarantee low HP kill or cap reset. You are going to be doing 12 dmg against tanks like Jag Pz or Types. Even with 4-6 shells, with the whole barrage it still is not 2O% the AP dmg from 1 AP pen. Unacceptable math.

      Tanks like Fochs 155, sure that works. Especially since the gun wildly goes all over the place when firing HEAT or AP. And you are not going to be dealing 12 dmg hits against Maus, making it more reliable. 7O3  ll can maybe try to do it, gambling for tier 6 matches because it is 2 tiers down. 

      Try all HE spam SU13OPM or 5OTP proto. Those look like vehicles that can pull it off, and even will make money and train crews doing it.


    4. MagicalFlyingFox






      TL;DR high calibre HE is still dumb

  19. Theoretical hypothetical question for all you 3 markers out there: would it be possible to go up 2 Marks of Excellence in 1 game? For example from 64.9 to 85.1 in one game. If so, has it ever happened?

      I think the overperformance of the tank's average would be too much. Like, you would need a horrendous tank, and then you'd need to have a game of a liftetime, and even that wouldn't be enough I don't think.

      By way of example (and noting that the tank is actually good), I got 7.3k dmg and 1,500 tracking in a Leo Pta game for my 3 marks, but the actual progress was from 94.24 to 95.45, so barely 1%.

    3. hazzgar


      It is possible but it's rare. When lights MM changed but prems were untouched I think this might have been possible. 13 57 went from shit to OP. 

    4. simba90


      I went from 82 to 92% in the T26E5 in one game during one of the rental periods. One of the very few times I considered trying for a three mark.

      @lavawing Why not both? I have both. I'd lick their feet 24/7.

    4. orzel286


      Oh, and I  think I have a game for you @Haswell


      I think it's like Mount&Blade, but leaning more towards rpg than somewhat-tactical/rpg. And is lewd.

  20. Chipping away at the God forsaken hellscape that is the test server if anyone wants to join.


  21. @orzel286 I need an expert opinion here, is this true? Asking for a friend.1219220641_Animelogic.thumb.jpg.f8dd50d38af835219445ce94927c0483.jpg

    1. orzel286


      It's very true in many cases, and has been done for ages now. For example, you can view how armor sets get lewder  as you progress through grades in lineage 2 -> https://www.ivory-tower.de/ a bit outdated site, since I think there are even better armors now. Used to wank to this back in the day tbh.


    2. echo9835


      Just asking for a friend and all. No other reason. Now to raise my defensive stats.

  22. I think I'm playing something else for a day or two. 12 games, 3 wins 3k average damage. A new bad games streak I have no desire to beat anytime soon. The Highlight was this Patton game. I did more (on a technical) than the next two on my team. http://wotreplays.eu/site/5206996#overlord-echo9835-m48a5_patton

    Divinity Original Sin 2 seems like fun. Now the hard part, Lohse or Sebille?

      I haven't played in a long time (I ironically stopped playing just before the enhanced edition patch hit), so not sure how much it has changed, but on release, it was super-important to stack your entire party on either magic damage or physical damage. Mixing damage types in your party just makes everything unnecessarily difficult. That's because CC is king as you're heavily outnumbered most of the time - stack damage type to reduce the CC protection shield ASAP, then chain CC and pick your target at your leisure.

    3. echo9835


      I usually do 2 and 2 for magic and physical, but its tougher on the highest difficulties to focus down individuals. On the other hand you don't get stomped by one boss with magic or physical resistance.

    4. Balthazars


      Yeah, I think 2 and 2 on the Tactician difficulty will get you into trouble in too many fights. I found a 3-physical, 1-magic setup worked really well and was pretty much getting through most fights without much problem. Not sure with the current patches, but back near release from memory physical was generally the better damage type to focus on because of the way it scaled with gear.

  23. Just hit 69.69% MoE on the Churchill Game Carrier. I'm wondering if I should stop here? Is this even better than 3 marking it?


    1. sr360


      Better still is not playing it.
