  1. So, I went and did this for myself last year... And, since they're doing the same thing again, this year (II-V 100% off, VI 80%, VII 60%, VIII 50%, IX 40%, X 30%), let's see if anything has changed with the new nations. Please remember that all numbers will be what you net in profit unless otherwise stated. There may be tanks close to the leader/runner(s) up, but I'm using the rough rule of "close enough for Errants to mention", and not a hard and fast percentage for almost making the cut. Tier II - H35 - 2.1k - Still the winner, though the runners' up have changed... Runner(s) up - M14/41 @ 2.05k, and 7TP @ 1.975k. You also have the following all at 1.95k: Strv m/38, VAE Type B, Chi-Ni, LT vz. 35, FCM 36, Loyd GC, and UC 2-pdr Tier III - SU-26 - 26.5k - Unchanged Runner(s) up - Any other arty are 22.5k - 25.5k. Those vehemently anti-arty can lose out on at least 3k with the following: Type 91 @ 23.25k, Pz 1 C @ 22.9k, M15/42 @ 22.7k, and Chi-Ha @ 22.5k Tier IV - B1 - 92.5k - Unchanged Runner(s) up - D.W. 2 @ 85k, Type 95 @ 83k, VK 20.01 D @ 78.5k, St.Pz. II @ 78k, and SARL 42 or Luchs @ 77.5k Tier V - O-I Exp. - 222.5k - Unchanged Runner(s) up - T1 Heavy @ 217.5k, Type T-34 @ 215k, AT 2 @ 212.5k, and StuG III G @ 211k Tier VI - M4A3E2 "Jumbo" - 195k purchase, 487.5k sale, 292.5k net - Unchanged Runner(s) up - Churchill GC @ 289.5k, and Hellcat or O-I @ 285k Tier VII - O-Ni - 596k purchase, 745k sale, 149k net - Unchanged Runner(s) up - T29, IS-2, and 45TP all @ 145k, or Crusader SP, Chi-Ri, T-34-2G FT, and P.43 ter @ 144k So, for a total cost of 791k, you'll get back 1.5761m, or a net profit of 785.1k... Wow. Not that great, but making money. Again, we're already in the rabbit hole, so let's look at the higher tiers, and try to get the biggest savings (and see how much of our profit we lost)! Tier VIII - FV207 - 2.73m base, 1.365m purchase/sale, net 0 - Unchanged Runner(s) up (base costs listed) - SU-14-2 (2.72m); M40/43 (2.7m); T28 Prot., G.W. Tiger P, and AT 15 (all 2.65m); UDES 03 (2.62m); T32 (2.61m); 110 and 53TP (2.6m) Tier IX - 212A and Type 4 Heavy - 2.22m purchase, 1.85 sale, 370k loss net - Unchanged Runner(s) up (cost/loss following sale) - Foch (2.202m/367k); Obj. 704 (2.196m/366k); M103 (2.184m/364k); G.W. Tiger, Conqueror, Type 61, and Strv 103-0 all @ 2.16m/316k Tier X - They're all 6.1m, so 4.27m cost regardless. And if you're selling a Tier X... I dunno what to tell you, but I shouldn't be advising your actions. So, the new lines didn't shake up the best choices, but the ITL and PL tanks did make a showing, consistently, in the runner-up category. Might not be a bad option, in general, if you throw your discounts at either one of those lines. Assuming you've not started up them. Finally, we come to the reason I did this the first time, figuring where to spend my discounts on tanks I've not bought yet. Again, that shit will go into spoilers, because this thing is long enough as is.

    IS-3A - Fair and Balanced edition

    I kinda feel as though that shoulda been the mechanic for auto-reloaders all along. Longer for each successive shell, BUT the single shell reload shouldn't beat a single shot version... Give them the ability to dump, penalize them for playing poke games.

    SU-130PM - Ruski Scorpion G

    Got through stage I and II tonight. Once one is complete, next one automatically unlocks. Unsure if overflow from previous on base exp goes into the next, though. Did base exp for I, and then Tier X reqs for II.
  5. When did the T-44 with 122 become meta? Every single one I'm seeing lately has it.

      So, I'm correct in my assumption that it is still, as Folter put it "stupid shit".

      Pubbies... I wish they'd learn.

      using the 122 makes it still a better chinese counterpart. And it is quite nice to troll people from time to time with the 122mm. Everyone expect 250 alpha and they are shocked when they get 390 alpha in their face.

      If it puts a smile on your face then it is worthwhile. 

  6. So, WG's new video... Here.

    An interesting end to it with the changing numbers, and what looks like the T-50-2...

    Would they really roll back to here?

    Or is it just for the 50-2?

      Replay! http://wotreplays.eu/site/4624488#abbey-errants-vickers_medium_mk_ii

      In a perverse twist of fate with the Ace Mastery mechanics, this wasn't even my highest exp game in it (base of 902, service record of 1,353). Just the first one I managed to get an Ace on.

      StormCrowReaperManyHats

      Ace Mastery mechanics are the fucking bane of my existence. Some stuff is just ridiculous to try and get and on really trash tanks you can compete against yourself a lot. I two marked the T25/2 and the Churc GC while trying to Ace them.

      @Errants yeah I know the pain since I sometimes like "Rer" tonks. The damage is good but seems achievable so  yeah ace mechanics... 

  8. New Alliance mechanic So, people who actually do CW consistently, with both skill and diplo... thoughts?

      @Errants you do realize coke and hookers was not meant literally? Have fun. Buy a dirtbike, go cart racing, go on a holiday, buy an old car.

      for the price of a tank you could also get a good piece of meat and have nice dinner :)

      Going on holiday, I actually get a completely discretionary gaming budget from the financial office (wife). So, this money is completely earmarked for me to use irresponsibly as I wish. ^_^

  16. I feel your pain. Like a heroin addict, we keep coming back for another hit.
  17. I need to build up credits... my CGC and 53/55 are woefully underplayed.
  18. Inb4 FAME comes into the thread.
  19. So, games other than WoT:

    Fallen into Girls: Frontline - will trade friend slots there... fair warning I'm a 2 battery peasant.

    Also, can message me for 1 of 4 codes for Magic: The Gathering - Arena (new, online MtG. Pretty and F2P, unlike MtG Online).

    Can't play with friends, yet, though I suspect that it'll be coming soon (tm) with them handing out these codes for distribution.

    Of course, first come, first serve.

      I went with gun-waifu's, not sword-waifu's.

    Tortellini or Ravioli?

    Meat-filled, of course, and baked in marinara... but, still, which would you choose?

    Free Coaching Through Discord

    Preferred Time Period? UTC times work. I'd be tempted, and think my Skype will sustain the stream.
  22. 20% off coupon, can only use on Prem (306 days currently) or a tank:

    AMX M4 mle. 49, Strv S1, 112, AMX CDC, STA-2, M4A1 Rev?

    Or rebuy one of the ones I didn't mention for the discounted gold?

    Training is not a consideration, more just collecting.

  24. More than slightly jealous of your competence and confidence. Well done!
