  1. The case for LTs is actually really easy to make, especially at tier 8. Figure any tier 8 you play, you'll be in tier 10 games at least 60% of the time. Of the rest, you'll be in tier 9 games 75% of the time. So you'll be top tier at best 10% of the time. Except now "top tier" includes a fair amount of straight tier games. So lets take an "amazing" "broken" premium like the Defender. Tier 9 and 10 tanks might have to 2 2 to pen you, but since they are doing that anyway that "broken" armor isn't really so useful. You are slow, blind, and you have a gun that is derpy as shit. In short, you are relatively useless. But wait, you lucked into a tier 8 game! OK, so 10% of the time you are OP (unless you are me, my Defender literally doesn't block shit). So now lets take a LT. You are in a tier 10 game. So you have no armor. OK, neither does any other tier 8, no big deal. But you are fast, and can get around the battlefield quickly to take advantage of opportunities (or if you are better than me, create them). Plus you can be useful just zipping around lighting shit for clueless retards on your team. But wait, you got stuck in a tier 8 game! Aw man, you just fucked your team! Oh wait, that is only true on a handful of maps and even on the really bad funnel maps you can generally make something happen unless you get a team of truly special window licking morons. And if your entire team is dead in 3 minutes you would have lost in anything, so you can't really blame the LT for that. So to recap - Heavies are only good when top tier (at tier 8), mediums are kinda bad all round (at tier 8), LTs are better than HTs and MTs when down-tiered, and with some care are fine when top tier, and TDs are a mixed bag (mobile ones with large guns are good simply because you add another tier IX or X gun to your team even if it is on a garbage chassis comparatively speaking).
  2. Well perhaps the ISPs weren't rent-seeking quite as hard prior to 2015?
  3. What are the odds of this thing ending up as a tech tree premium?
  4. I actually think the Challenger is pretty good. Averaged a bit over 1300 damage with the 17 lber, average damage is far higher with the 32 lber. The limited traverse is a bit of a pain sometimes, but the good gun depression makes it pretty easy to find spots to limit your exposure. Seems to have pretty good camo too, at least until you fire.
  5. One of the few tanks I'd open my wallet back up for.
  6. Think that got delayed again. Looking forward to the crew, have to figure out what I'm going to do with the 6 new crew I've got now. I think it's very cool that you can unlock the tank without assigning the reward crew like you used to have to do.
  7. This. So much fucking this. THIS for fucking YEARS. Three to be exact.
  8. I just did 15.4 in a T49! Running around like a chicken with my head cut off, got absolutely incredibly lucky several time. Got a little salty at the end because I thought I had just missed it, but the E5 won it for us and got the "with honors" for me. Holy shit I am stoked! Got 15.3 in the T49 too a long time ago. Here's the game, assuming anyone is interested. And you SHOULD BE! Just to make me feel good. And I already feel pretty damn good about it :). http://wotreplays.eu/site/3918444#swamp-treeburst-t49
  9. Figure it's better to bump an old topic than start a new one. I'm thinking about utilizing this "trade-in" to get an STRV S1. So I've got two series of questions. The first is about the S1. Is it even worth getting? I have a UDES, I think it's different and amusing, but definitely hard to use well enough to win a game. How different are the two in reality? Second, which tank should I be looking to get rid of? I'm leaning towards the IS-6, since I think the Defender pretty much rendered it superfluous, but I'm honestly not sure. Before pref8 meant 5 9s and 10 8s a game it was a really strong tank, now? Probably not so much. I've also got the JT88, T34, and KV-5.
  10. If the Maus had 14,000 hp it would be easy. I bounce about 2.5k per game on average I think. About 95% of all rounds fired at tier 10 are gold rounds anyway, 100% of the ones fired at "super-heavies" are.
  11. The tier 5 seems to be a worse version of the tier 4. That is as far as I've gotten so far. The premium 8 is pretty amazing though.
  12. I just got Warhammer Total War, I really like it. Definitely one of the best games in the franchise IMO.
  13. I'd laugh my ass off if the "Mars Mode" was legit and the Mutant sale was the joke.
  14. Well, maybe once you get REALLY gud@lyfe, you can reroll and be gr8 at tonks too!
