    If WG magically gave the option in settings, to turn off battles with Artillery and Light tanks, I would check off both in an instant. A fucking instant. Yes, I do agree that even tank destroyers and light tanks combined, do not create the toxicity arty does, sure nothing does that. But LT are definitely more toxic than TDs. And in a blink of an eye, I would select these things as off and never face off with these shits again in a pub. And I am not just singling out armoured cars, which are the most troublesome of the bunch. All are problems, except the low tier pseudo-light tanks. IE:  Valentine, AMX4O, MTLS  -  these things are fine because they are lies really, not light tanks at all more of meds.
    ơ  LT promote extreme passive play. Unlike arty they don't bomb and stun people far away, sure. But they spot for the arty to bomb and stun people. They don't suffer camo on the move penalty, making their job quite easy and extremely frustrating to counter late game. Even bad camo LT, can sit in a bush with binocs / camo next and dramatically increase their camo/view range, to which you never spot them unless literally running into them or have an EBR run into them. 
    ơ  Myself included, guilty and to be charged......farming damage in light tanks. Excellent camo, camo on the move, small size, speed  -  these things are terror late game and clean up very well. Notice the LT re-balance ages ago, bringing them to tier 1O - WG decided to nerf their view ranges/DPM/pen/Accuracy? Because that the WG queue, their actions saying, "light tanks are toxic fucks. We need to limit their ability." 
    ơ   Meds can fulfill their role of battlefield spotters, with the healthy gameplay risk of losing 25% their camo if they move. This is great for gameplay, adding risk management. They don't have the retarded LT camo shield when they move. 
    ơ   Arty punishing aggressive gameplay?  Well, it is very very very likely a hidden light tank, that hasn't move in a minute, spotted you making an aggressive play, to which you get punished by arty or TD. Sure, it is easy to get caught up, and angry over passive play from TD and definitely, point and click sky shits - but where is the root of the problem? A lazy cock light tank making it all happen. The light tank is pointing and clicking too, he just is Teeing, not firing. 
    ơ   For all the stat guys, LT horribly skew WN8 too.   of all the TK, how many are TKs on light tanks too teams are angry over? Just because team-dmg is turned off, doesn't mean TK are off. Allies push you, nudge you off edges, block you in wrecks, drown you, Etc. 
    I am not going to argue with people over the fact that yes, arty is more toxic and shitty, without an ounce of skill. Because l guess light tanks need to some of rudimentary skills. But besides brown sky farts, no other class causes as much trouble as lights. People, newcomers especially, leave this game over the fact retartded invisible light tanks are preying on them, half the problem of low tier clubbing constitutes light tanks. Heavy tanks in city maps are annoying, sure but can be avoided - unless what you are driving is something like Strv. I have seen soft skins like AMX3O, Leo, STB1, Grille 15, FV4K5 do just fine in city maps and close encounters. But for Strv, that is on you for not turning off Ensk and Himmels. So what is the problem here, the results that light tanks can get so easily? No, because spotting and contesting map area are  part of the game  --  it is just the easy mode in which they are able to do it. (like arty, isn't it? Free damage?)  Medium tanks can step in and do the role of scouting, at a much fairer, riskier, healthier way.
    And this applies to CW, too. Clan Wars was just fucking fine with Bat Chat 25 doing that shit. Light tanks are toxic in that venue, too.

    I think you are missing the point that playing my KV-2 in a platoon with friends is fun.  Its one of the very few things about this game that is still fun. 
    Making the game 'better' while making it less playable seems to be a pretty common theme from WG lately.  This very forum has (HAD I should say) an entire section dedicated to T-49 HE memes.  What is the actual payback WG is expecting from this? Are all of the Hellcat drivers that rage quit the game after getting balanced by a 152mm gift from Stalin in 2015 going to reinstall? Doubtful.  Is yet another sub group of players (derp gun aficionados) going to finally throw in the towel? Probably.
    This is another example of WG dev-team members that don't play the game trying to solve a problem that does not exist while ignoring obvious problems that would require actually learning the game meta to understand.

    PlanetaryGenocide got a reaction from VTSplinter in Learning how too 3 mark stuff   
    I think the other thing that you didn't mention regarding the 3 marking battles is that it's your last 100 battles - you only have to be consistently good for 100 battles.  This also means that you'll occasionally get wild swings if, for example, a shit 0-damage battle where you potato and die first drops off the end and gets replaced by your 6k damage 2k spotting kolobanov+radleys game or whatever.
    I had the same problem as you the first time I tried 3-marking the derp T49, got to about 93% and then just potatoed hard three games in a row and dropped to about 87, gave up on it.  When I finally went for it again (after noticing that I was back to about 90% without really trying for it), I would literally just do one battle a day for the longest time - I'd log in, do a T49 battle, and then go do my other grinds.  That way, I'm solely affected by RNG and my own skill, as opposed to say, being tilted by being nuked by arty last battle.  Eventually my potato games dropped off the end and I was consistently doing 3-4k+ combined per game with some really lucky map RNG since blocking maps wasn't a thing back then.  Given that your issue is consistency within a session, maybe give the once-a-day thing a try once you go above 90% on the marks?
    Finally, assist damage is apparently vastly underrated for 3-marking (and do note that it only takes the higher of spotting or tracking, you don't get both) - I've had 0 damage games with a full percent progress due to the amount of spotting received.  I'll also note that during my original 3-mark grind, I wasn't running optics (or a 5-skill crew or food), but once I swapped out GLD for optics for the extra view range and started running cola every match is when my mark %age started going up again due to the extra assist damage.  For an E50 you might be better off going for tracking shots than spotting - i've never played the thing, idk how blind it is or isn't, but it doesn't seem like the kind of tank you can go and get spots with in the current year.
    also obviously just run food, buy 200 crew books, and spam gold for ez frags from noobs
    tl;dr:
    always go for damage+tracking shots if possible, but don't be afraid to just 0-damage track something if it's the best you can do since you'll still get more mark progress than just holding fire waiting for a damaging shot don't play on tilt - if you potato in one game don't dig yourself deeper trying to gain that % back.  If one battle a day is all your sanity can take, do one battle a day. Block shit maps lmao Abbey and Paris fucked my mark percentage so many times

    PlanetaryGenocide reacted to Kymrel in Skoda T 27 - tier 8 autoloading Czech premium Medium   
    It is sufficiently different to the Lorraine to be interesting with a 21ish second reload (the way I kit mine out) and much shorter intra-clip. The Progetto is better, sure, but that's a given.

    PlanetaryGenocide reacted to Kymrel in Skoda T 27 - tier 8 autoloading Czech premium Medium   
    Well, it sort of exists. In the upcoming stuff section:
    Since I love me my Skoda 50 and this looks like a downtiered version I bought it despite the pre-release nerfs. Sure, it's not as good as the Progetto, but that may be a good thing. In fact, I would say it is balanced but still pretty good. 
    It feels pretty comfortable to play, to be honest. I'm only 36 game in, but a 67% WR (will go down, for sure) and an 1800 dpg is well above the Progetto for me. Both the WR and thereby the DPG will go down, this is just a small sample size and all that. I'm usually hovering at 55ish%.
    I went v-stab, vents and optics, and since I have a bunch of those vent-purge directive things lying around I use those as well (or will, until I run out). Crew almost has three full skills, including BIA. May train up the girls for the missions since with books they will soon be better than those boys.  
    It does bounce some tier 6 shots when angled, and some miracle-bounces against other tiers. It's about similar to the Pantera, which always did bounce a bit more than the paper Progetto for me. Mostly the bounces are RNG though, nothing to count on. 
    Verdict? I like it and don't regret buying it. It will probably be quite usable in Frontline as well and a break from the Progetto. Not as good as the Progetto for sure (it is too good, let's not kid ourselves), but good enough.

    I used the 5k bonds they gave us for the anniversary or whatever on an iVstab for the derp 49.
     
    There's no way i'll ever play enough ranked or tier 10 to bother with getting tanks from the Bond shop and the T49 is the only tank in the game worth playing in pubs on a regular basis as it is, so my next bonds purchase will almost certainly be an iOptics or iVents for that same tank, followed by whichever one I didn't buy.
