  1. Update 1.4.1: We get random drops, blueprints and crew skins. Because that's what this game needed. Who is allocating development time to shit like this when there are so much more important issues to tackle? What is this even?

      They're probably going to start selling this shit for $$$ in the future. I know it says they will not be purchasable now, but just wait...

      I mean WG has long since departed from being a small company trying to make a good game to just trying to milk it by pushing out periodic updates with new "content" like this to keep up an appearance of lively development

  2. This is pretty cool. A video showing slow-motion shooting from an Easy 8 76 mm and a Rusky 152 mm gun. Watch that and tell me how you wouldn't spot a tank shooting behind a bush...

      Also shows no WWII gunner would try for a cupola shot.  C'mon, real gunners used american white stars and german crosses for aiming points.  They sure as hell weren't aiming for lower plates hidden in grass and bushes either.

      Naw. I just like watching tank-related stuff.

  3. Christ the Lynx is terrible. With this shit view range you have to work your ass off to try to do something for your team, taking unreasonable risks for usually very limited gains since your snipers always seem to be far worse than the enemy snipers shooting at you.

      The whole line sucks. I didn't know how much it did suck until I outspotted an ERB 105 in my FV4005 and one shotted him afterwards... Their view range needs fixing asap.

      It just keeps getting worse. Meeting tier 10s a lot makes it sooo much worse than the tier 7. You get outspotted by everything, every game. Can't snipe with that gun, can't scout, shit DPM, no armor, no HP. Why is this in the game?

  4. Thanks Wargaming. I had just about stopped raging at the game after turning off the chat and accepting losses when I at least did my part. And then this marathon comes along where I need to win games. And I've started raging at the incompetent crayon-munching 0-damage morons on my teams again, even though I'm not really trying to finish this marathon. Great.

    1. sohojacques

      sohojacques

      Teams have been so bad during the marathon I’ve pretty much stopped playing. Guess I should thank WG for that really.

  5. What's this tier 2 wheeled tank they're adding? Is it something they're planning to give?

    From the patch notes for 1.4: Added the following wheeled vehicle of Tier II: the AM 39 Gendron-Somua

    1. Wanderjar

      Wanderjar

      With the release of patch 1.4 we will get an event called Pedal to the Metal. It’s about the wheeled vehicles and as a reward we can get the Gendron Somua tier II premium vehicle.

      Frontline will start on the 11st of February (but this is already known)

      Between the 21st of February and 6th of March we will get a marathon for the Panhard EBR 75 (FL 10)

      p.s. These news are NOT confirmed!

      Armored Bicycle :D (or motorcycle i suppose) maybe a Kettenkrad?

      Honestly, an armoured off-road Segway came to mind.  Then I thought "how does that fit in 1920?  Wargaming, I guess"

      Jesse_the_Scout

      If that thing moves as crazy as the higher tier versions I'm going to use it to utterly ruin the first impression of every new player until I single-handedly kill the game.

  6. Is there some way to see how many xp you need on specific tanks for Ace Wanker? Or look up your own stats and see how many times you've gotten 1st class/ace on a specific tank? Wondering which tanks to pick for missions.

    1. Wanderjar

      Wanderjar

      used to be that you could look up the MOEs on VBaddict but since thats down ive got no clue where now

    2. simba90

      simba90

      Go have a gander at wotreplays.eu and look at what sort of games are getting aces for the tank you want.

    3. PlanetaryGenocide

      PlanetaryGenocide

      There's no way to see how many times you've 1st/Aced a tank, unfortunately.  I have to keep track of my T49 aces by recording every single one I get

  7. Easiest Top Gun ever in a game with my T29. Six penetrating shots, six kills. Killstealing has never been this ugly.

      In a campaign game tonight, I had 4 kill shots in a row on tanks under 20 hit points. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    3. Kymrel

      Kymrel

       It was one of those chasing damage games. It's my only excuse.

  8. Hate Jap heavies? Just activate the Block 10 mission where you have to damage German or Japanese tanks and you'll never see them again.

  9. WTF is this? "Acquisition of balance data is in progress. All your gold, bonds, credits, and Free Experience will be available soon." I now have 3 tanks I can't repair because I don't have access to any funds. It has been like that for at least 15-20 minutes. WTF is this shit?

    1. nemlengyel

      nemlengyel

      @Kymrelit's a bug, there's a forum thread about it. I noticed it last night already but I thought it was maintenance then, seems like it's not. They only put up the notice like an hour ago tho, so #monitoringsucks XD

    2. Kymrel

      Kymrel

      I've seen it happen once before, but only for a few minutes. It's been over an hour now. The hamsters need more vodka. 

    3. nemlengyel

      nemlengyel

      Yeah lul. If I were to guess, some poor engineer is probably being paged right now about the situation XD.

      The salt on the official forums is real though, since the timing coincided with campaign today

      It seems they fixed it, my tanks are repairing now and info is back

  10. A S1 cheesewedge just tried to sidescrape out of cover at 40 meters from my IS-3A. Now I've seen everything. RIP S1.

    1. Kymrel

      Except on maps where it can shit on you from stealth from a bush.

  11. 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.

      Kymrel

      Agreed. Still situational, but more likely to get done.

    3. hazzgar

      hazzgar

      Yeah plus it's easier to control since you can wait for enemy to cap up to a certain level. You have more control than hoping enemies wont be back in time

    4. Kymrel

      Kymrel

      Absolutely. And it might reduce the number of "please let me cap for mission" whines when you're trying to chase down the clicker who's been riding your ass all game.

  12. 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.

    1. Kymrel

      Kymrel

      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.

  13. 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.

    https://worldoftanks.eu/en/news/general-news/update-1-4-common-test/#ghost

    1. Kymrel

      Kymrel

      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?

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

  15. 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

      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

      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.

  16. 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.

    1. monjardin

      monjardin

      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. 

    3. monjardin

      monjardin

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

  17. 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?

    1. Jesse_the_Scout

      Jesse_the_Scout

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

    2. Kymrel

      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.

    3. Kymrel

      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!

  18. Playing in an unarmored tier 9 medium against 3 4005s and one 183 is just retarded.

  19. 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

    1. Ham_

      Ham_

      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

    2. hazzgar

      hazzgar

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

  20. 1200 base xp is 2nd class on the Standard B. What kind of games are you monsters pulling on this beauty??? 

    1. Errants

      Errants

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

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

    2. Kymrel

      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.

    3. sohojacques

      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).

  21. What a way to end the P.44 Pantera grind (aka joyride). Two Ace Wankers in a row in the last two games with the tank. First a Pool's Medal as top tier on Redshire and then a 5,400 combined in a tier 10 game on Pilsen pulling victory from what looked like a sure-fire defeat. Feels good man. Standard B about to be purchased.

    1. Tarski

      Tarski

      I'm only starting the joyride, but I did free exp the gun so it will be smooth sailing. 

  22. Why is a 600x600 meters Ensk still in the game at high tiers? Anyone?

    1. Tarski

      Tarski

      Because they know that it's going to be hilarious to watch when wheeled vehicles run into that one train bed that everyone crashes into moving east out of south spawn. 

    2. Kymrel

      Kymrel

      That's one reason, I suppose...

  23. Two tier 6-8 games in a row in a tier 7 tank. First the enemy side gets one Defender who rolls my team (can't even pen unangled lower plate, gg me). Then my team gets a Defender who rolls the enemy. At least it's balanced......

    1. Hellsfog

      Hellsfog

      enjoy not penning that defender with 30% less dpm. Ochen horrorshow

    2. Crossfader

      Crossfader

      perfectly balanced, as all things should be

    3. nabucodonsor

      nabucodonsor

      go for cupolas but yeah fair and balanced my friend

  24. First game in the LT-432. Mid-game on Cliff, I'm roughly half health and I go to kill a two-shot Bat 12t at the light house. His first shot sets me on fire. All good, automatic extinguisher kicks in. The his second shot also sets me on fire. Lesson learned: Use the Repair Kit on the damn fuel tanks.

    1. Never

      Never

      Man I want an LT-432, but then again my account is in the NA server and apparently we're the red-headed stepchild of this game.

  25. An AFK Obj 257, top tier in a 3-5-7, blocks 4060 damage while being shot at by a WZ-1111111111-4, Emil I and a T44. They took so long killing the guy our team won by capping. Can't make this shit up. This armor is very normal, not a problem...

    1. Kymrel

      Kymrel

      Magic Rasha bullshit armor strikes again.

    2. FavreFan4ever

      FavreFan4ever

      More like pubs being pubs. It was the only tank on that side of the map, sitting unmoving in base. All they had to do was drive up to it and shoot it in the rear or something.

    3. Kymrel

      Kymrel

      Naw, I was there, scratching the paint on their tanks in my Eagle.
