  1. 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...

  2. Don't worry. They will nerf it to the ground before release.
  3. 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.
  4. 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?
  5. 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.
  6. Anyone here feel like the CS-59 burns a lot? I've switched from food to extinguisher and repair fuel tanks religiously now.

  7. 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...
  8. 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.
  9. Zero side armor is terrible, but I hate taking ammo rack damage in every other hit even worse, to be honest.
  10. 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.

      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.

      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

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

  11. 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

      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

  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. I stopped after tier 8. Wasn't too thrilled with the slow, armored TDs. The tier 9 and 10 have some armor, but since it's flat and thick it's pretty pointless when people spam gold.
  19. Trying to get blocking missions for the 279 done in the Bobject is just impossible. Every game is all-tier 10 with 2-3 arty and 2-3 EBR shitters. After playing the Leo PTA for a while now playing anything that doesn't have a railgun is fucking uncomfortable as well.

      I need to do the mission in either a Rusky or Chinese tank, sadly.

      Fuck I forgot about that.

  20. Fuck all mercy low--rolls. Rolled a 315 min damage from Leo Proto on a Super Conq, leaving him on 26 HP and loosing the game. FML.

      I agree with that. I remember this one but forget the ten other times I won when I rolled above average to win the game or set someone on fire etc. That doesn't make it less frustrating when this shit happens. Especially since I had just bounced a shot aimed for his lower front plate but RNG decided should hit the very edge of the upper front plate instead. So RNG gave him double protection.

      @Tman450 nope. There are actually more min rolls than high rolls for the simple reasons often high rolls are bigger than the HP left on some tanks. So in effect some of the good RNG is eaten by the lack of hp on tanks.

      Ive always sorta felt that if they have less health than your guns alpha it should be a garunteed killshot. 

  21. How the fk is that not a pen? Leo PTA shooting at a Grille 15 with a 30mm upper plate.

      isn't that mod known to be not 100% accurate on hit locations?

    3. Tman450

      probably hit the gigantic gun

      If it hit the gun the mod is indeed inaccurate, since it shows the enemy tank gun position. I've seen shots that hit the gun (and didn't pen because of it) and it was shown clearly. I can't think of another explanation than the mod being inaccurate, but I've used it for a while now and usually when I don't pen what I thought I should have, it shows that I hit some part of the tank at an extreme angle when I thought I hit the flat surface  right next to it. This one I can't explain any other way.

  22. That could be it. I sent a message and they said as much.
  23. I was curious about a player on the enemy team after a battle just now. When I tried to look at his stats it came up with an error message that said "Player details for Alem_Sikembe_Kiziltoprak are locked." I tried to look him up on the WoT site and got a 404 error. Wotlabs can't find him either. Any theories?
  24. Man, how nice does it feel to get a Kolobanovs? Only my 5th ever. Leo PTA you wonderful beast.

      GG man. So weird to see a Kolo's without either an Ace or Radley's (beyond the weird Assault defence games).

      I second the Pta. I recently got 4 of my 5 Kolos in the last 3 months, and 2 of them were in the Leo 1.

  25. Man, I love your videos but can't understand how you can play with such a small minimap! EDIT: And apparently neither can you, since you enlarged it a couple of minutes in. False alarm, everyone, false alarm!
