  1. Heya guys/gals, Basically, I want to start playing casually again, and I'm looking to play on EU because NA is dead (there are more people in the middle of the night on EU than at peak time on NA). To give you an idea, this is my account on NA (over 20 tier 10s): And this is my account on EU (tier 5-6s, a few tier 8 prem to help the credti grind): Basically looking for people who can pull their own weight and would want to help me or play with me as I climb up the tiers. I speak both French and English, if it matters to anyone. Cheers all!
  2. I personally have a 28 inches 60Hz TN 4k samsung monitor (ue590d), and I almost regret not going for a 1440p ips panel sometimes. (btw, the ue590d is a WONDERFUL cheap introduction to 4k, the TN panel is actually pretty great) If I were in your shoes (and I was), I'd explore a few options: (cheapest) Going dual with a second 1080p monitor. (seriously, you can find some for dirt cheap) (mid-range) 144Hz 1080p panel. (you might want to try the widescreens, but they cost as much as a 1440p panel, so just upgrade to 1440p at this point) (not so cheap) Going 1440p ips pannel. (definitively nowhere cheap) Wait to see if the long-awaited 144Hz ips panels will come out at buy-able prices. (note, this can be combined with option 1) Given that I broke up with my gf last winter, my budget was... bigger to say the least... And I personally went with option 5: gtx 1080 and 4k screen. (might not be the brightest idea, but it was black friday and god... I just had to)
  3. As a general rule, you stick with brands that have made their marks in reliability. Then, there is 2 options: -You go with exactly what you needed, in 80+ gold. -You go with a cheaper model (still within the trusted brands) in 80+ bronze, but a model with more wattage than needed (give your psu some headroom). The ideal solution being a 80+gold, as they are pretty full-proof. Small note though: go for the M models (modular). Seriously, it helps cable management so much, and it's worth the extra 5 or 10$.
  4. Nope, always had to play your prems the campaign I had your infos. hahaha (btw, been at least a year since I last heard of you) And, here is an almighty screenshot I just found (had to start up my laptop given my new build does not include all the screenshots I used to have. Seems like buying every tank in the game reduced him from 800 millions to slightly less than 500 millions (but all the tanks in the game are in the garage... so...) In said pic, it was filtered for tier 8s tds (for a tourney if I remember well): Quoting you guys because I apparently can't forum and learn how to tag you all.
  5. Yes... Ffs, the guys was clocking over 50 battles a day (at 50K+ a battle), no real surprise.
  6. An account I socked a few times had over 800 millions in it. A few ex FOXEY, TYR, PINGU or _FAM_ might recall the screenshots I had back then. The guy literally put over 10 thousand dollars in the game... Including several hundreds in my account...
  7. So... A total of 6 people, so far, from my job, have just bought the new iphone 7 plus (for a little over 1250 canadian dollars). Those are the same people that bought the 6s plus exactly a year and 4 days ago (for a little over 1300 canadian dollars). And those are also the people who spent about 200 to 500 bucks each on multiple new things for both of their new phones. (and I'm not even adding the extended warranty they all took for both phones) 

    Those are also the douches that judged and shamed my "indecent" spending when they learned that I am putting about 300$ a year, on black friday/cyber monday weekend, to upgrade the gaming rig I use everyday.

      Using your savings go on a badass soul searching adventure a la' Ewan McGregor style and return victorious with a hottie, beard and a wealth of knowledge. Literally becoming the most interesting man in the world.

      Dang... just tell them that you don't care about materialistic things and shut them up :)

    3. blackzaru


      I'm working in a marketing department. Everything we do is about materialism.

      I'm just not dumb enough to throw all my money by the window.

  8. I'm under the impression that you understand that, despite what you call "us only looking at raw number instead of performance", some of us are indeed looking at performance. We are also looking at what we spend. And, even if there is a slight performance difference (which I highly doubt any decent rooted android couldn't make up for by optimizing it and removing bloatware), spending more than twice the amount for a phone that is basically the same spec-wise, and, to any useful purpose, about the same performance-wise, isn't the wisest thing to do. In fact, when I saw people spending upwards of 1300 canadian dollars for their iphone 6s, I literally bursted in laughter. If you are, in fact, ready to spend that much for so few (arguably virtual performance gain), well alright. But calling out people about taking concern about how much they actually get out of their money is pretty messed up. And don't take me wrong, this isn't an anti-apple thinghy, it's an anti-throwing-money-out-of-the-windows thinghy. I also cringe when I see people bragging about their brand new galaxy s7 and how good it is (or, in the pc equivalent, people boasting about having a 3000$ alienware that contains actually 1400$ of hardware).
  9. Welp, sorry for this. And don't take me wrong, I'm not claiming the Oneplus 3 is the solution for everyone, has everyone has a specific phone fitted to their needs. I'm saying that for it's price tag (about half or a third of "flagship" phones), the Oneplus 3 offers specs and feature rivaling them on pretty much every ground, even beating them in some. The only real downside of the phone is the lack of external memory slot. But even then, the actually drive capacity is more than enough for most users. And enough for any that transfer their videos from time to time. It's a great bang for the buck.
  10. Well, the oneplus 3 has 6gb of ram, not 8. But, having one myself I will tell you: It does everything my friends' Galaxy S7s and s7 edge do. Either as good, or even better in some points. And it costed me less than half what they paid. (500 canadian dollars with taxes vs 1100+ canadian dollars for them) Also, it's freaking easy to root. Like any retard can do it.
  11. Can confirm that I am very happy with my oneplus 3
  12. What are the chances of getting 3 marks on a tank if you have exactly 85% at 50 battles?

    (exactly: I am from NA, making myself an EU account, an this pure perfect OCD moment just happened)


  13. This is a "looking for clan" / "looking for platoon-mates" thread. Before calling me a yankee, or talking to me about trump/hillary: I'm canadian. So I don't want to hear about the insane things my neighbors from the south consider as "viable presidential candidates". Now: I don't have many games, and my stats aren't stellar (2400-2600 WN8), sorry about that, but I'm trying to figure out how to play my normally aggressive gameplay on EU, where I have a ping varying around 300-400ms. (like, it does not work right now, and I'm working on changing how I used to play on NA... Because screw 400ms ping, it's pure hell) I won't necessarily play at the same hours as you guys usually do (heck, we kind of have 5 or 6 time-zones of difference), but I'll slowly play, just can't guarantee anything. ( I have a few tier 8 prems if you don't like the low tier grind) Anyway, contact me here or by pm please. I just can't stand the solo pub for a long streak of games and need support. BTW, having purple XVM overall on EU, with low battle counts, means I'm getting shot by my teammates at the beginning of every fifth battle or so... RIP.
  14. Is teamkilling frequent on EU?

    (I'm a NA player that started an account on EU)

    Because a m44 on my team shot a heat shell through my ass in the first 25 sec on my third match today...

      Ive had people try to TK or YOLO me (~2600 WN8 overall on EU, no 6th!) but thus far all have failed

    3. Zezti


      Yes it is. Not too long ago I was shot by a "friendly" arty who then suicided because I wouldn't go to a flank by myself and he refused to move. Obviously it was my fault...

      Sometimes they TK you because they're just so bad at aiming, they miss the enemy and hit you instead. 

    4. kolni


      They also full reticle snapshot for their first shot all the time because aiming takes about half the time of reload and whatever's inside it doesn't matter (yes this is a thing, especially with lower tier arties that actually reload in like 20 seconds)

  15. Got in: blackzaru Will try not to be shit to flee from pubs.
  16. Me, trying to make an appeal to pubbies to stop camping corners in every stronghold matches I am getting into... On the main NA forum...

    Why do I have the feeling I will hit a brick wall of stupidity?


  17. So... I just moved in to my new place. Changed pretty much every provider I was dealing with, given I moved a whole lot closer to a real city.

    Had 400kb/s download and 200-something kb/s upload (with pings wildly varying from 100 to 400 ms) before... Now...


    HOLY FUCKING SHIT. It's just indescribable the way everything is faster and smoother. I've been living in a cave this whole time. :wao:

      dammmn nice download. I need the upload so now I might be able to strim without it giving me shit


    3. Assassin7



      some of the fastest you get in NZ without being in specific locations that have access to fibre. (this is VDSL, and funnily enough my step brother down the road can't even get that at his house, hes on ADSL)

      also, when we got it like 2 years ago? it was faster than like 95% of NZ or something when I first tested it. 

    4. Gandaran


      rip NZ. although living there is probably worth it.

  18. Subtle? We don't have the same definition of subtlety.
  19. One of my friend just got 2 2tb Samsung evo 850 SSDs for 250$ (canadian dollars, so, around 200 US $).

    Apparently, they were mislabeled as Seagate 2tb passports portable drive, and the cashier did not even bat an eye and gave it to him for that price anyway.

    I'm jelly as fuck.

    1. An_Arty_Player_Hits_You


      I'm also super jelly as fuck

    2. blackzaru


      I'm trying to convince him to do the smart move now: yes, 4tb of ssd is fucking great.

      But reselling those and his 2 years old computer should net him easily over 2K, more than enough for a monstrous new built.

    So... My neighborhood had a facebook group I was unaware of. Got in it Thursday, started grouping up people from my team and elaborating a strategy, we have now been in control of all 7 gyms from my neighborhood since saturday morning. We basically held the entire weekend unchallenged with full control of the area. People are already calling us out on "rigging the game" and asking how they can create a new account to switch teams. Conslusion: controlling your neighbors can land you quite a steady income of free pokecoins.
  21. Apparently, I am this close to pure insanity.


    What have I done /10.

  22. Ram only!!!!!


    aka: how to make a tog the hero of a match.

    1. SkittlesOfSteeI


      Reported for rigging. Enjoy your ban

    2. blackzaru


      Totally rigging this tourney.

      Was quite fun to see our batchat lose 1.3K plus for 300 or so damage.

  24. Not enough shades of yellow. You are missing "lemon" "mc hammer's pants" and "ripe as fuck banana" at least.
