  1. That's close to KV-2 shell velocity...
  2. I played a couple of games in the tier 8 and 9. All the points above are spot on, but I'd like to add that 12 km reverse speed is very annoying for poking. The Bisonti has 15 in reverse and that feels slow. 12 is just terrible. I was excited for this line, since I kind of enjoy grinding new stuff and have very little left to grind in the game, but unless they buff the tanks massively it seems like a line for masochists.
  3. Honestly it's just camos. And fugly ones at that, mostly. I just got the ones I didn't get from last year, anything from this year is just a bonus. The main point is to get to the +50% as soon as possible.
  4. This is why you don't pack all your crew into a tank the size of a small-ish bathtub. All three crewmen of a full HP ELC Even 90 killed by a 400-damage HE hit to the front of the hull. Today was a good day.

  5. With pretty much nothing left to grind in the game and the Italian heavies not here yet I finally took the plunge and started playing the British light tanks. I can't understand why Wargaming has not one single member of staff that can balance tanks. I'm on the tier 8 now and to think that this is in the same tier and class as the 432 and EBR is a sad joke. At least it's got 230 alpha, so you don't need to expose for a 135 alpha like the shitter on tier 7. DPM and ammo capacity are tragic though. As is the lack of HE pen.
  6. Is this a joke? Can I three-mark the Setter (tier 7 British light tank shitter) with a 620 average damage? Is this the easiest three-mark in-tier in the game?

      I know it’s meant to be shit, but that’s M3 Lee territory, surely?

      No you can´t 
      It seems you only played a couple of battles with it. Gun mark mod needs much more to work properly. 

      Here the actual target combinded dmg.

      Ok, had to be something. Thought I was going nuts. I normally don't care about gun marks, but just noticed this since my Aslan's modpack has this thing that displays the requirements in the garage. Thanks for clearing that up.

  7. I figure I got pretty lucky. 100 boxes purchased, all three tier 8s I didn't have (had the Borat) and the new tier 6 as well as all the other ones. Just under 51k gold, about 10 million credits and 40ish premium days. I'm set for a year or so.

      Yeah, after 2 years of doing very well, my luck has run out this year. 75 boxes, only the new Italian heavy out of the tier 8 prems (so at least 1 of the 2 I really wanted, the other being the Bour - I also would't have minded trying out the GSOR) and only 1 of the skins (for the WZ, which I don't even have). About 25k in gold (which is always nice for getting more premium time) and about 5 million credits. A few doubles of the lower tier premiums, but don't really care about those.

      I got the 60TP, CGC, whatever that chinese heavy is, and STB-1 skins. about 71k gold, and 11mil credits out of my 150 boxes, forgot to mention that much. Really, really wish I had got the Bourrasque after shelling out that much though. At least I'm set on gold for a long time if I spend it wisely?

      WG is laughing their way to the moonbase

  9. The hamster keeping the EU servers up is on a break again, it would seem. Started with lags and then the servers just went down. GG Wargaming.

      Same here. Have had a long break and lost the feel for this game but last week tried some games 
      at my parent's place. Their WLAN cant be compared to my old rig but still.. This game was frustrating enough
      upfront. Every 2.game things simply crashed. Extremely unstable connection although ping appeared to be quite okay.
      All the WG $ firmly in lootboxes on Cyprus I reckon- no time for server maintenance

  10. I will realistically only get to about 50% off the 274 and am torn on whether to get it or not. I have the disposable cash, but just wonder if I would ever pick that tank over the Lis in my garage (which I like quite a lot). Trading mobility and gun handling for a bit more armor, that is still unreliable at best, seems like a pretty bad deal for me...

    Halp?

      Yeah, I'm leaning towards skipping it. Unless someone else has a really compelling argument. Perhaps I'll get lucky and get the Italian heavy in a lootbox...

      you really are not getting a discount on the tank until 60%, tbh it isn't worth it until 70% or more

      Got it at 50%, not worth it.

  11. When using XVM to show stats (I do. I don't like the mechanism, but it's there, others are using it and I'll do it too until it hopefully gets banned one day.) players using anonymizer are grayed out, and so very obvious. It is usually one or the other, a very good player or a very poor player. It might be anecdotal, but when I look players up after the battle that's what I tend to see (there is some bias there, as I'm most likely to look up players who did very bad or very good in a game). But you don't have to look very hard at how they play to know the difference. After injuring a finger recently I've played arty exclusively for almost a week to get some stages of the marathon done, and I can tell you it is ludicrously easy to tell the difference from a top-down view. So really, I don't see anonymizer doing very much at all to spare good players focus fire from arty using XVM. I don't focus based on it, but I can see the attraction. Very bad players are likely to sit still, take their time aiming, not knowing when to hide or take cover. So shooting them is easy points. And shooting the good players is obviously helpful to winning the game, if you can hit them. But they tend to be good at using cover, popping up in different places for shots etc.
  12. I'm doomed to play arty or take a break from the game I guess.

      See, that's why people are rude in online games instead of IRL.

      Nah, just kidding. Sucks, really, because plenty of games use WASD to move around...  *shudder* Artillery play frustrates me the most of all classes.

      Get fixed soon.

  13. Finally a premium tier 8 Russian medium tank.

    ST-II

    Just finished the IS-3-II grind. Unlocked the ST-II with no intention of ever buying it. The IS-3-II was very much not my cup of beverage. The double-shot is a gimmick that gets used once every 20 games or something, and then you get a longer reload so it might not even be worth it. Instead you get shit armor, turret that gets penned way to easily and not much else. IS-3-II has been sold, and I'm glad to be rid of it.
