  1. I'll probably not get it at more than 50% so I'm on the fence if I should get it. Especially since I splurged for the TL-1LPC Offspring tank. They seem pretty similar. I like US tanks more than most and the medium lifestyle is a favorite for me, but I'm still not sure if I should splurge on it.
  2. Last year they had the tier 8s (defender, IS-3A, can't recall others), the E25 and a bunch of shitty tier 5s. If they are doing tier 6s now it will at least have the potential to give tanks I might actually use. I'm planning to buy some boxes for gold anyway so I sort of hope this list is real. It's just that I have a hard time mustering the enthusiasm for even more premium tanks. Not releasing a new tank tree in time for Christmas is a major SNAFU for Wargaming. This and the Halloween screw up makes me think they are having problems.
  3. Could you not turn this thread into your usual argument? It is poisoning what little content this once great forum has. We get it, you hate each other. Move on.
  4. A lot of those maps felt pretty bad at the time when they were removed, but with so many shiiiiit maps in the game today I think the old ones start looking better and better. I never minded Dragon Ridge. There was a bit of a problem with huge elevation changes, making life hard for the precious super-heavies, but it never felt unbalanced, back in the day. Hidden Village was awful and I never want to see it back in the game. A corridor slug-fest and the rest a suicide rush area. A tiny, tiny map, effectively, since most of it was unplayable until late game. Komarin was terrible b
  5. Wait, what? The 65t has good armor? Sure, the stock turret is good, but the rest is penned by a random lol-tractor, pretty much. Were you talking about the tier 9?
  6. With a 40% discount on the line and nothing else to grind I finally took the plunge and got this turd. I'll start out with the stock turret and the 100 mm gun. It is hilarious how this tank has the mobility of a super-heavy and no hull armor what so ever. This will be a painful grind.

    Rammer, GLD and Binocs for me.
  8. I was facing a T28 on 800ish HP with the clock ticking. I penned him but he managed to hit me twice with HE, doing about 300 damage total and leaving me on 2 health. He had about 150 HP left to my 2 and I knew he'd shoot HE. I approached with 10 seconds left with HE loaded as well and snapshotted him before he could get his shot off. Truly an epic ending of a damn good game. Needed 10k combined damage, blocked and taken, got about 13k.
  9. Researching the 268v4 was good advice. Did the mission in game 19 with that OP bullshit tank. Did just shy of 7k damage, 3.7 blocked and 1998 HP taken. I was the last man standing with exactly 2 HP left, snapshotting the last enemy tank before he could kill me with HE. Pretty epic game
  10. I played the T95 when it had a 13 km/h top speed. It feels positively swift now compared to those days. But then the pace of the game is so much faster than it was back then that it's probably far worse in comparison.
  11. Apparently the 1.7 test server is up. And the only thing there is directives for silver. Which is not even worth testing on a test server since it will have no relevance once it hits real and people have to decide if they should spend actual credits on directives or not. I suppose it isn't inconceivable that they add some stuff in a second iteration of the test server, but communicating that at this stage would be the way to go. As is, this looks like a micropatch at best.
  12. Sorry, but if you think spotting in a light tank is without risk I'm not sure I can take you seriously. The maps where passive scouting is a viable tactics are down to what, 2? 3? And even there you are often trying to spot super-heavies hiding behind a magical bush that makes them undetectable.
  13. We should all just have teams of heavies meeting in one corridor shooting each other hull-down and sidescraping with HE. That would be fun. Heavens forbid that someone try to play a mobile tank.
  14. Tell me about it. I forced myself to play tanks I didn't want to play just so I wouldn't waste it.
  15. I finished the grind anyway last night. I suspect you're right about not liking the 268v4, but it's a good tank to have for missions so I don't have to love it. Since I'm doing shit grinds now I think I may finish the Conway as well, just to get that over with and take a break from the missions for a little while. Also, with boosters and daily 2x from premium grinds are super easy now...
  16. Ah, was that it. I did put in the code and get some skin for the AMX1390. One of those days I may start reading those specials news from WG rather than just glancing over them. I just find that I either do the missions by playing normally or really can't be bothered doing something special to finish them anyway.
  17. I got the same. So I stopped grinding missions and started playing tanks I truly hate, the Obj 263 and Conway. It doesn't seem like 10 5x victories after the daily would be a "normal" reward from some mission, but I don't follow the news from Wargaming that much, to be honest so I couldn't say for sure.
  18. Yeah, apparently I have some 5x victory missions I had no idea about so I popped boosters and did about half the 263 grind (I had some blueprints for the 268v4) yesterday. Still faaar from my cup of tea, but just the idea of selling the 263 and getting the 268v4 should be enough to get me to finish the grind.
  19. Drats. Does that mean it would be a good idea to finally do the Obj 263 grind? *shudders* Got really close twice today, 400ish short and 700 short in the 430U and 260 respectively.
  20. I've been trying to finish off the last few Chimera missions. Until recently I used my standard tactic of turning on a random mission and finishing by chance whenever. I've only got the last Union mission left, Armor of God. I need a combined of 10k damage, blocked and damage taken. So far I've been trying with the 430U, but have been branching out, trying the Obj260, WZ11111111115 and even a game or two in the IS-7. I fking hate missions with damage blocking so damn much... What tank would you use for this mission? If you've finished it, what tank did you use? Tier 10 seems like a g
  21. Quick mission question. I have three Block missions to go and then just the 15th mission for 3 groups to get the Chimera. I have 5 orders I could use. If I don't use those, can I use them for the 279e missions instead?

    If so, can I use them now and then when I'm not sick to death of playing German tanks go back and finish the missions to get them back?

    It's been so long since I finished the first campaign and I didn't need to use orders on the first step of this one so I literally can't remember.

      Ah, so you need the secondaries as well. Better just stick to it. The three missions I need aren't that hard, it's just that playing German tanks is getting super boring. Need to do 5k damage, so playing Leo a lot and getting up to 4.9k a couple of times because reasons. It's a matter of time though, have done over 7k in the Leo. Then it's just a couple of topgun-missions. Since I'm no unicorn all three of those will take time and some luck.

    2. Sylvansight


      time and luck will cover a lot of it,  I liked to split them into missions I would likely hit with a tank I was still due to grind vs those where I'd have to actively start playing a different way, or probably needed a tier X. You'll get there, good luck.

    3. Kymrel


      Yeah, that's the problem, I have so few tanks left to grind. And really none I want to grind in the German or Japanese trees. I mostly have the arty to go (not really interested) and haven't bought  some of the tier 10s, but they are all unlocked apart from the PzKVII (and why would I want to play that tank?).

  22. I just played the first game ever in a Mauerbrecher (it's a rental, I'm not that stupid). And now I have pixel aids. What a garbage tank.

    1. echo9835


      Pixel aids are incurable, you are going to die. Sorry about that. :/

  23. It doesn't have -5°? Tanks.gg lists both it and the 121 as having -5 but the tier 9 as having -3 (I finished that grind, it was paiiiinful).
  24. I'm confused now. Why is the Hydro worth getting? Compared to the V/IV it's trash in every single way. The stats on the 121B don't look that bad. NATO gun on a Chinese turret. I guess there has to be a downside, but I've never really given it any thought as I don't play Clam Wars. Is it half-decent or just bad? If bad, why?
  25. Yeah, the new stuff is that they will apparently make HESH a new type of shell.
