  1. I'm doomed to play arty or take a break from the game I guess.


    1. BadLuckCharm


      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.

  2. Finally a premium tier 8 Russian medium tank.

    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.
  4. Eh? Did you mean medium 390 alpha with autoloader? Because there is a ton of tier 9 meds with 390 alpha.
  5. After a few weeks off from the game I've played a bit for a couple of days now. The one-sided roflstomps on both sides are just crazy. I mean, they were before my break as well but they are just so obvious after a little time off.

    Is it how easy it is now to get to the high tiers? And what could WG do about it?

      @PlanetaryGenocide, in my dataset, for BT8 and above (1309 battles), the average duration is 7 minutes and 10 seconds. My average score difference on a win was 7.7. My average score difference on a loss was -6.8.

      @PlanetaryGenocide  I have an 9853 game data set.

      Miros and my numbers agree quite well.  I will link the data later tonight.

      neat! good to know

  6. Playing the Italian tier 6 again to get XP for the new heavy line. Fucking hell the arty shitters are everywhere. Three per game, 90% of those are M44, with thousands of games in this cancer-spreader. Wargaming still has its thumb up its ass and does nothing. Tier 6 used to be fun.

      The last arty rebalance (higher RoF for reduced HE damage) absolutely broke low-tier arty (tier 5 and tier 6 arty in particular) because the reduction in HE damage absolutely no way offset the much higher rate of fire because most low-tier tanks have minimal armour, plus are typically slower, so hits on meds and lights absolutely wreck face.

      M44 needs a major nerf it's frickening annoying. I too am putting 50-60k experience on the tier VI Italian.

      e: KV-2 excepted, of course.  But only sometimes.

  7. The slow shell velocity was an instant turnoff for me. Better than the Korean Patton, but that's not saying much.
  8. That feeling when you surprise an EBR 105 and frontally ram him in an LT-432 with both of you going full speed. Shot and rammed from 0 to dead. I lost about half health. 10/10 would do again.

      Yeah, it's fighting ebola with cancer...

  9. Don't worry. They will nerf it to the ground before release.
  10. Meh, I ended up getting the engine. I don't really notice a huge difference, but it seems to feel a little more agile. Could be a placebo effect I suppose.
  11. Small size? It feels enormous. Not too high, but pretty much every hit pens so you feel big and fat. I don't think it can work in positions the 430 can rock, since it has a squishy turret. It's been so long since I played the Pat and 61 so I can't really judge it in comparison with those. So engine is a yes? Or suffer through without it since it's not really a keeper?
  12. Don't see a thread for this tank so why not create one? I kind of find it decent, it's not Leo PTA comfort but trying for the same position so that makes it bad by comparison. It feels like the least bad Polish medium to me, with the possible exception of the derp-BUGI, which has hilarious alpha for a tier 6 med. Have any of you researched the engine? The stock engine is 670 HP and 1.900 kg. The upgraded one is 700 hp and 2.100 kg. Seems to me there is no real need to spend 50.300 xp on that thing. Should I? I will absolutely not spend 9.200 xp on the upgraded radio. Going from 710 meters to 730 at tier 9 is absolutely, utterly pointless. And you get the radio for free when you unlock the tier 10 so double the reason not to spend XP on that module.
  13. Anyone here feel like the CS-59 burns a lot? I've switched from food to extinguisher and repair fuel tanks religiously now.

  14. Agreed. My best games have been ones where I've been very aggressive. Less easy against a bunch of tier 10s but I tend to be too aggressive in all my tanks anyway...
  15. Yeah, I have to take back what I said earlier. I took the plunge and got the tier 9. It is surprisingly fun for a turretless TD. Blapping people in the face for 750 never gets old and there aren't that many of them around so some people don't even press 2 until the first shot or two bounces. Low shell velocity is my pet peeve with this one. Makes sniping moving targets (read: EBR pests) harder.
  16. Zero side armor is terrible, but I hate taking ammo rack damage in every other hit even worse, to be honest.
  17. I've played tier 6-8 Polish tanks now. Not that far into the tier 8, but enough to form an opinion. Tier 6 was OP as fuck with the gold derp but so slow I felt bored playing it. Tier 7 was boring but had nice alpha for tier. Tier 8 is a shittier version of the Lansen that doesn't make any credits and somehow seems to hit even less. Unless the tier 9 is worth it (as some say) this line seems to be a colossal waste of time.

    1. NightmareMk9


      I only played 12 games in the Tier 8.  It was terrible.

      I have 40 games in the Tier 9 and I only need  26k to unlock the 10.  I free XP'd the top gun and it is pretty good.  But at least a couple times a game RNG just SCREWS my fully aimed shot.  Even with the turbo, the 9 isn't fast.

    2. EvilMonkee


      The T8 is just awful, stopped me wanting to progress any further.  Its a derpy slow unarmoured POS whose ONLY redeeming quality is decent HEAT pen

    3. Kymrel


      That just about sums it up for me. That gun just potatoes literally half the shots.

  18. It takes a little getting used to that the Polish meds have no armor. They look like they should and I found myself playing the tier 6 and 7 ones like they do. I need to get more in the Leo Proto mindset, I guess.

    1. Deus__Ex__Machina


      the tier 8 especially 

      you think the turret has some armor, but in reality anything with 170- pen can go through with ease

  19. Reducing the shell velocity of the Chinese tanks is a kick in the mouth though. The more I play, the more I appreciate the value of good shell velocity.
  20. Thanks for buffing arty ROF with the 2.0 equipment you Wargaming morons. Playing the lower tier Polish tanks is pure hell with the M44s raining down even faster than before.

    WZ-111G FT (T9 TD)

    After reading this, having nothing better to play, I bought this TD for giggles. It isn't as bad as I thought it would be. It can bounce when people can't aim/hit or you can hide your lower front plate. But unless whoever you're fighting is dumb, you will only bounce one shell and the next will be gold, penning your flat armor every time. I take a good amount of HE as well to shit on hull-down heroes. What does my head in is the shell velocity. Gun is accurate enough, when shooting unsuspecting immobile tanks or tanks up close, but if you ever manage to hit an EBR-105 at long range you should praise whatever unholy power you've made a deal with and sacrifice another animal/virgin immediately.
  22. Yeah, those bushes seem better than the elevated ones with the walls. Surprised the EBR didn't yolo through there once or twice. Really seems to be a matter of having a team that's more campy, waiting for a field push that may never come. Great map design. In anything but lights I'd probably go city.
  23. Has anyone had any success scouting on Berlin in light tanks? Seems like there are just so many TD nests, bushes, indestructible walls and angles to get shot from that trying to scout the field is pointless. But it's a new map and perhaps some of the clever folks here have figured out a way? After a handful of games on it as I grind the WZ-132A (for no good reason...) I've now just blocked the map.
  24. I've only played it a bit. Not really a fan. It's certainly unique, but I found that in almost every game I would have been better off in a Leo PTA and much better off in the Standard B. Interesting concept but the long intra-clip and reload keep this from being a good tank. Not bad and can be fun, but not a contender for the top spot in the tier 9 medium meta as is, IMO.
