  1. I thought bouncing missions couldn't get more annoying than in the first campaign, but now I have to do them with tanks from the USSR or China as well. I wonder what tank can bounce 2x its HP. Not an IS-7, people know better than to shoot it hull down and heat and HE meta is a thing. Perhaps a 257 driving sideways/sidescraping badly against 7s and 8s? Or can a T-150 do it, sidescraping against lower tiers? Or perhaps an IS-M on a good day? I have that one unlocked and could grind it, I suppose.

      The baby bobject, SU-100M1, is the answer to all your troubles.

    2. Kymrel


      Hm. Hadn't thought of that. Perhaps I should re-buy that. It did bounce a lot when top tier. Thanks for that.

  2. In what world are the LT-432 and the T92 in the same tier? Grinding missions by nations is a bitch. Spotting tanks without being detected is almost as retarded as the blocking missions.

      Only a couple of maps where that's even feasible, outside absurd luck. Mali and Prok are the best bet, and then on a good day. Better do it before the wheeled yolo-wagons enter the game though.

      i got it on tundra of all places, i put a camo net on the T100 and spotted all the meds/heavys/TD's crossing to the hill

      Nice of them to oblige!

  3. Yup. Already did it, in fact. Not that I think the cars will be anything more than an interesting diversion.
  4. I recall a lot more when testing some new tank, probably the Italians or FV 4500. Some assholes just love to shit on others with arty enough to drive those on the test server.
  5. Based on the test server (yeah, I know, I know) there's good news and bad news. Good news is that there is hardly any arty, and if they do show up they usually get killed early. Bad news is that we have reds running around like headless chicken all over the place. I predict ammo bills going wayyy up if a lot of people drive those things.
  6. Interesting that researching the tier 9 armored car costs 50k more xp than researching any tier 9 light tank.
  7. To make the "new" Ghosttown map better it has been enlarged with open areas. And huge ledges for sniping TDs and other campers to stop any meaningful advance, by the look of things. The pandering to the camper TDs by Wargaming is getting disgusting. That and increased armor on everything explains why there are so many TDs and few mediums out there now.

      I agree on the variety, but could we possibly not have every location you can advance overseen by a ledge covered with bushes? On every map?

      Hey, not every game on Fisherman's Bay ends in a draw!

      I was excited when someone mentioned they were adding the map in. I was upset when I learned they were changing it.

  8. Glorious weekend warriors. I've got a 32% WR in 31 games today. Teams literally buckle and die in 2-3 minutes.

  9. I haven't played the ELC since way back when I three-marked the thing in an orgy of seal-clubbing that would put any Canadian to shame. Now that the new line of wheeled vehicles is likely to start after the ELC I took it out for a couple of games. Oh my god, what did they do to my baby?? It now has terrible acceleration, awful handling and the gun hits nothing half the time, even after aiming for the eternity it takes to aim in. RIP ELC.

      I don't know though. It's not a fun tank to play anymore, but it can still get the job done. I played something like 15ish games to get enough xp to unlock an armored car (I think, 32k should do it, I hope) and it can still be a little terror if it can set up an ambush. But the acceleration and turning make it boring to play so I guess I'll sell it after getting the tier 6 wheeled thingy.

    3. 8_Hussars


      Your right it's not fun but you can make it work.  You cannot out run, out gun, or out maneuver anything, and the standard pen with the gun handling is shit.

    4. Kymrel


      Yeah, I just went ACPR and HE. Can't be bothered reloading for an hour, aiming for another hour and then bouncing a light tank.

  10. Am I the only one confused by the camera angle on the Mighty Maus? I just bought one after having it unlocked for ages. When firing in sniper mode the shell seems to come from far above the camera. It feels like I'm shooting a catapult or something. Accurate, sure, but it feels wrong, somehow. I haven't experienced this with any other tanks, but then I unlocked the Maus through the VK ausf B so I haven't played the two mini-mauses.

      It’s really bad on tanks like the Emil II where you REALLY need to be hull down.

      I didn't realize it was happening at first while I was grinding through the Emil II. There were a lot of times when I thought I was hull down and actually had my hull exposed over the ridge. 

    4. monjardin


      Yeah. I stopped grinding it during the recent On Track out of frustration with this bug. 

  11. I have stayed far away from tier 10 since I started playing the game again mid December after a looong break. And then I stupidly bought a Maus with the Christmas discount. Holy shit how boring are the all tier 10 games? Eight to ten superheavies or East-block heaviums per team, a smattering of 1000+alpha TDs and some stealth-Swedes  and of course arty. How is this fun?

      The entire game at high tier is a complete fucking abortion now. I don't even know why people play it.

    3. Kymrel


      Yeah, tier 9 seems pretty nice. I'm enjoying the ride in the Standard B at the moment as well as playing some tier 7 and 8 lights.

      I've flagellated myself through ten battles in the Maus. One was a 3-5-7 where my lack of mobility and a team charging down to the beach on Overlord prevented me from doing much, the other nine were full tier 10 games with the team composition above. Parking the Maus again until I need to do bouncing missions.

    4. Kymrel


      And now I hit the jackpot in my 11th game in the Maus. 3-5-7 on Ruinberg vs a Type 5, FV4500 and a K91. The poor Type did not trade well with me, even with only 311 ACPR pen. Over 5.600 damage and 2.400 blocked. Ahhhhh. That's what driving a Maus should feel like!

    HWK 12

    I have found that most vehicles have sufficient reverse speed to back away from the HWK's shot slowly to get away.
  13. Playing in an unarmored tier 9 medium against 3 4005s and one 183 is just retarded.

  14. It takes a special kind of cunt to play 25,818 games in an E-25 (out of 64,215 games total) like this guy I ran into in a game today. pg4tZjI.jpg

      25,000 games and he only has 1300 dpg... which would literally be only doing your hp in non-td tier 7s lol

      Actually more concerning is his 47% W/R with 900 games in the T-54 eh

    3. hazzgar


      @Ham_ meds have less hp. 1100 dpg in a p43ter is 2000wn8. 

    4. DirtyACE7


      One of Gasai_Yuno's underlings maybe.

  15. 1200 base xp is 2nd class on the Standard B. What kind of games are you monsters pulling on this beauty???

      Funny, Aced mine with 1,376 base...

      And, yeah, fully upgraded, sexy tank is sexy. Might keep Tier IX and X on this line.

    3. Kymrel


      It is damn sexy. I cry every time on a fucking corridor map but that's life if you don't play something armored with a good HEAT or HE round.

    4. sohojacques


      Lack of armour is a thing. But at least you’ve got the clip to trade with (Leo PTA found crying in the corner).
