  1. Should I bother playing the EBR 90? I have enough blueprints to skip straight to the 105, but am reconsidering. I'd mostly be playing to finish the first campaign missions.

    105 :

    +generally regarded to be a better tank tier-for-tier

    +higher HP pools at t10 should help with missions

    -t9 is best MM in game

    -105 seems more likely to be matched up against another EBR, whereas t9 has multiple popular lights

      I disliked the 90 but found the 105 good. 240 alpha vs 390 makes a world of difference IMO.

  3. Lol. The high risk spot play on highway literally breaks the map if u have enough td's. Enemy has to either forgo town or die. 

    11k combined in an LT432 is nice.

      I'm surprised you feel that way about the 432. It is a really good scouting tank, fast with good camo, has some armor, a bit of gun depression (bizarrely) can bully other lights and laugh when they shoot HE or even bounce off the front. The low alpha is annoying but the rest of the package is just soooo good.

      Very nice work. Aggressive position for sure. I'll try it when the setup is right.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

    1. Kymrel

      Kymrel

      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.

  9. My first tier 10 3 mark. I know, pretty shit, but i've had a mental block for years - thanks to the community here for all the tips, and in particular to @kolni for his great feedback and analysis.

  10. I just bought the EBR 105. I'm assuming that Rammer and Improved Optics are a must - what should I get as the 3rd choice - Vents or Vert Stab? I know it has good bloom values but if it is always moving does that mean Vert Stab is a must?

    1. Kymrel

      Kymrel

      I'm no expert, far from it, but I picked vents (+rammer + optics). It has insane accuracy on the move even without a v-stab.

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

      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.

  12. Leopard gun mocks me. I've had multiple sub 370 hits when I needed to kill enemy one shots. FFS

    1. Kymrel

      Kymrel

      I had a min-roll one (315) when I was trying to kill a med on 329. Cost me two hits, and because of that the game.

  13. IS-3A back in the prem shop on NA, you guys think it's worth getting?

    1. Kymrel

      Kymrel

      I've not even taken mine out for a spin when I needed a heavy in Frontlines. 703 is just so much better, as is the Defender. The gun is just so damn derpy (like the Defender, but unlike the 703).

  14. Finally at 30k bonds. For someone who doesn't play clam wars, ranked or anything else, this is a milestone. Haven't spent one, ever, so I wonder if I should. Don't have a tank that I like enough to get bond equipment and only the M60 appeals somewhat to me. The question is, should I get some super-equipment or just keep hoarding and  hope they eventually put a tank I want for sale for bonds?

    1. Kymrel

      Kymrel

      You are not wrong there. I don't play my M48 all that much. At the moment I'm enjoying the hell out of the Leo PTA and have re-equipped the Standard B to get some more fun out of that tank before it gets nerfed. I guess that is a pretty strong hint.

      On the other hand I want to keep some bonds in the wallet just in case Wargaming does something really, really stupid like putting the 907 on sale...

      Yeah, there is that new equipment thing. Personally, I think they'll end up scrapping the idea or working on it for a year or four longer, but it is a bit of uncertainty.

  17. I unlocked the Char Futur 4 and holy shit the gun is good. The camo is 33.41 stationary, 25.78 on the move with BIA and vents but no food/directive. The 4 second unload is something you really do have to work around.

    1. Kymrel

      Kymrel

      Unlocked mine last night and took it for a spin. It feels very comfortable, except for the intra-clip and lack of ammo. I'd kill to have only a three-shot mag and shorter reload though.

  19. Is it just me or do other people play way better in autoloaders too? I play most of my autoloaders about 500-700 win8 better than single shot tanks. I think its just easy to trade HP with non-autoloader tanks, but maybe there is more to it I am just not seeing.

    1. Kymrel

      Kymrel

      Autoloaders are also very powerful in the late game, win or loose, which helps.

  20. Trust Wargaming to make what could be a fun, simple PvE game a complicated annoying mess. I've played 5 or 6 games now at tier 1, lost every single one since two or three morons in the team just press W and die, again and again. And the reward? Yet another IS clone. That's a hard pass from me.

    1. Kymrel

      Kymrel

      My problem every single game has been that I can't kill the baddies fast enough at the end because I have only one or two friendly tanks. Not because I camp, but because I actually use cover, angling and side-scraping. Doesn't save me from the frikking lazer-guided shots from some of those bots, but it is better than sitting in the open taking fire from two directions like my teams seem to like doing.

      I guess this could be OK for a platoon of 5 guys, but as is I won't bother with this.

  21. Frontline.

    Circled to death by EBR in T-54 Proto from full health.

    Respawn.

    Circled to death in BC 12-T by same EBR.

    This game is so fucked.

    1. Kymrel

      Kymrel

      Yeah, all that space makes the EBRs a pest. Don't get me wrong, I drive mine a lot in there, but they are a fking pest. I took my HWK out for a spin. Man that was a mistake. As big as a house and vulnerable to HE. That thing is not in remotely the same tier as the EBR.

  22. Is the meta in Frontlines changing? I'm seeing more and more heavies and far less lights and meds, in general. I've even started taking the Renegade out and it performs pretty well. Still prefer the usual Progetto/LT432/EBR but playing something else is a bit refreshing.

    1. Kymrel

      Kymrel

      I forced myself to finish to rank 15. That way I only have to get rank 10 next time. I played the Rene a lot this time, mostly for a change of pace. It can bully somewhat, especially at range, but it suffers like all non-EBRs when a swarm of those totally balanced and not at all bullshit cars come for you.

      I'm about to give up. I have 9 coins now and could get one more by finishing up to rank  15 in this frontline, but I just keep getting moronic teams (both sides) that rush the objectives. Last game I ended up as a Captain, and was the highest ranked player in both teams. Literal fucking morons.

  25. Any AMX 50b/120 experts here know how to play it on Erlenberg? My most recent experience, I went bridge but it wasn't contested and I was just useless in between a shit ton of campers on both hills and the red line. I don't what areas in the middle can safely counter hill because this thing is literally permaspotted.

    1. Kymrel

      Kymrel

      My experience is exactly the same as Balthazars. The 50-120 is the only tank, ever, that I've rage-sold without finishing the grind.
