  1. had three battles in a row where every single shot that hight my tank was a high damage roll.  I'm not talking about a little bit high, but 50-100 HP higher than average.  Now I know why some pubbies think the game is rigged.

      Yeea. Every Bourrasque rolls 400

  2. I thought it was 4 previous campaigns where you had a chance to get it? I think its normal rotation. Its been available for four campaigns and they are rotating it out for a campaign like they did with other tanks previously.
  3. I had a 252U on my team redline sniping in a Lakeville battle. Our other heavies went valley and camped there. We lost that battle of course. At the end of the battle I said, "Fuck RNG and fuck our redline sniping Defender." The 252U player reported me to support and I got a 1 day chat ban.
  4. https://worldoftanks.com/en/news/game-modes/global-map-renaissance-event/ New italian autoloader. Tons of people whining that the T95/FV4001 isn't available as a reward for the first time.
  5. The reference design 6800 XT uses 280-325 watts during gaming based on the reviews I've seen. That doesn't look like a huge difference, especially when you look at its power consumption in newer games where the 6800 XT is in the ~320 watt range. So its 50 watts less than the 3080. Considering GDDR6X also uses more power, that's not a huge difference. The aftermarket 6800 XT models are using 350-385+ watts for 2 to 4 FPS more on average than the reference 6800 XT card at various resolutions and still performing worse than the RTX 3080 founder's edition card in most games. It doesn't look like the power consumption is that bad now.
  6. It seems that the only Ryzen CPU that anyone has a chance of getting without using bots is the 5600X. One discord I'm on, the people there are using bots in an attempt to get a single 5900X and 5950X.
  7. I played six tier 10 battles this morning.  In 5 of the 6 all of my team was dead in under 4 minutes.
    In one battle three teammates in a row drove out sideways in front of the same enemy T110E3 and got shot in the side.  The 2nd and 3rd that did it obviously saw what happened to the first tank that did it and they did the same thing in about 20 second intervals to also get shot in the side.
    I had several teammates say they didn't like the matchmaking so they intentionally YOLOed right at the enemy and died at the start in multiple battles.
    In another battle there were 3 TDs camping near cap.  When the enemy got near our cap, 2 of the 3 TDs drove away from our cap and started driving toward the enemy cap.  They died on the way to the enemy cap without firing a shot.
    I had a teammate complain that "matchmaker matched me up against a heavy tank, so he YOLOed straight at the enemy team and died at the start."
    On most of my teams over 2/3 of the team couldn't do half their HP in damage.
    People wonder why I don't play this game as much as I use to.  That's why!

      I feel that the past few months I get long streaks of teams who can't stay alive long enough for me to do any damage.  How is my team so bad that the enemy chews through the entire HP of 15 tier 10 tanks in under 4 minutes several battles in a row?

  8. I banned Minska nd Mines. Minsk because it sucks all over. Mines because its way too small for 30 tier 10's in a pub battle.

  10. Is your priority to have the system be as small as possible or are you willing to have a slightly larger ITX system to get better cooling? The NR200 is nice because it can use a 240/280mm AIO. Newer AIO's cool better than even the largest air coolers at the same noise level or offer the same cooling at a lower noise level. I think the NR200 won't fir a 162mm high CPU cooler. Also, you can usually put a pair of 120mm fans below the GPU in the NR200 to blow cool air directly into the GPU fans. You will need a new power supply with the NR200 and many smaller ITX cases.
  11. Utilities such as MSI Afterburner and Windows task manager show VRAM reserves and not VRAM in use. When you actually measure the VRAM in use, you see its a lot less than the VRAM requested/reserved.
  12. The blower style cards, stock clock cards, and some of the cards with lower end coolers were cheaper than the founders edition cards on release. I think many AIB partners tried to cash in on the market and most non blower GTX 1070 cards were in the $419.99-$499.99 range. The plastic shroud blower cards were $399.99-$414.99 upon release. I can't find the pricing on release date, but there was a mention of the MSI Armor cards that came with the inadequate GTX 970 cooler were under $419.99. I thought I had a screenshot of EVGA's prices upon release, but I can't find it. I found one mention of the stock clock version of the EVGA ACX dual fan model being $419.99 around release time. I think most GPUs are priced around what the market will bear. The 2000 series was higher priced for its performance and didn't sell as well as the 1000 series. I'm pretty sure the first run of the 3070 and 3080 will sell out quickly. You will even see the first run of custom PCB 3090 series GPUs sell out quickly even in the $1700-$2000 price range. People look at custom 3090's as a great performance bargain compared to the 2080 ti cards with custom coolers. AMD's advertising helps Nvidia. I think the issue is a large part of AMD's advertising and marketing is actually awful. I find half of AMD's social media stuff to have too much trolling, childish behavior, and immaturity if they are trying to advertise to people who can afford their more profitable products. They also have hyped up their products before release with half truths and that leads to disappointment. Their approach doesn't help their reputation. Basically it seems that AMD's social media side of the GPU marketing is aimed at people who usually can't afford their GPUs without financial assistance of others(teenagers). Other parts of their marketing almost seems to be misleading. For example, the pre release "Ryzen is for gamers" yet 1st gen Ryzen performs worse in most games upon release than the i5 and i7 CPUs available at the time. AMD marketing the Radeon VII as a gaming card, then a few months after release, when there was some disappointment, they change the marketing to it being a GPU for content creators. I understand that you have to appeal to a wide audience in marketing computer gaming hardware and that some humor helps sell products and you have to emphasize your best features, but it almost seems that some of AMD's marketing hurts them more than helps them. GamersNexus's recent video about AMD GPU marketing covered some of the same stuff I've said in the past. I want to see what Intel brings to the GPU market. I don't expect their first GPUs to be great, but I expect that their 2nd GPU series will actually be competitive. Noctua already has this cooler listed as incompatible with many x299 motherboards. This is nothing new. I almost feel that this is click bait because you run into the exact same issue with most 5700 XT cards that have back plates on the same X299 motherboard. Didn't Noctua already came out with a different NH-D15 version with more GPU clearance.
  13. I have the ds418play. I'm not sure if its still in production or was replaced by a newer model.
  14. I'm comparing the Nvidia "brand" founders/reference edition cards for price comparisons to keep things equal. There are too many differences in coolers and other hardware for different manufacturers models to compare them equally. No hardware manufacturers or vendors had a $379.99 card available at launch. The $379.99 cards weren't available until months later. They may have been advertised, but nobody had them in stock. Also the use of low priced models brings up another issue. People could argue semantics of lower priced models with inadequate cooling, such as some of the lower priced MSI models that overheated because they used a cooler originally designed for a lower wattage GPU. You need to actually fact check Wikipedia and not assume everything there is correct. Just because someone entered information incorrectly on Wikipedia, doesn't mean its a fact. https://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2016/05/nvidia-gtx-1080-1070-pascal-specs-pricing-revealed/
