  1. Watch out for a player named D3vilNBlue. I was on Fjords in my light tank spotting form a bush. He drive up right next to me, gets lit, gets me shot, blocked me from moving back, and gets me shot again. When I called him out on it he told me to get over myself. Then made some personal threats. He also told me he would put me on his "hitlist." His clan's profile says, "Be willing to learn, not be a jerk, have a good attitude, and team play." I'm shaking in my boots now with hsi 1000 WN8 recents. He can kill everyone on his hit list easily!
  2. EVGA keeps putting up bundles of Z370 motherboards and GTX 1080 or GTX 1080 ti GPUs on their bundles page every week or two. They sold out of the Z370 bundles a few days ago. They may have new ones up there soon, possibly later this week. Right now the only thing left is the Z270 bundles. https://www.evga.com/products/featured-bundles.aspx
  3. Outdated drivers? Ryzen slowing it down? It seems that WoT 1.0 doesn't use more than 4 threads most of the time. I7-6700K at 4.6 GHz and GTX 1080 ti.
  4. The GTX 1050 and GTX 1050 ti do well in WoT 1.0 and WoT enCore at 1920x1080. http://cbgamesandhardware.blogspot.com/2018/03/wot-encore-vs-wot-10-common-test.html If you can find a GTX 1060 ti or GTX 970 for under $200 it may be your best bet. The 1050 ti will have a warranty though. EVGA has this factory refurbished one available now for $184.99. https://www.evga.com/products/product.aspx?pn=04G-P4-6255-RX
  5. I'd like to thank BeerBellyBaron form C-I-A for sitting by a rock near cap refusing to reset the cap because he might get shit when both tanks that could shoot him would need several shots to kill him. Instead he sat behind a rock near cap refusing to reset and let the enemy cap out before the rest of the surviving teammates could return to cap. Then he called the teammates assholes for yelling at him in chat to reset. http://wotlabs.net/na/player/BeerBellyBaron
  6. EVGA is selling graphics cards for near MSRP in their motherboard bundles and cooler bundles for several months. It looks like they sold out of all the bundles except for the x299 bundles recently though. There are promos on the new 860 EVO drives now because they are a new item. Some retailers are already running out of the 850 series drives that the 860 replaced. https://www.anandtech.com/show/12347/samsung-announces-860-pro-and-860-evo-sata-ssds https://www.anandtech.com/show/12348/the-samsung-860-pro-512gb-and-4tb-ssd-review
  7. Watch out for DrGates http://wotlabs.net/na/player/DrGates He ran into my tank while I was sitting still and aiming a shot. Then he blamed me for hitting him when I was sitting still. After that he parked sideways behind me so I couldn't back up and he got me shot. I called him a clueless idiot for getting me shot intentionally, then he shot me three times then turned blue, so the team killed him. He spent the rest of the battle blaming me for everything and calling me a shitter.
  8. My friends that play WoT on console say that the IS-6 has two gun options on console. The pref MM gun is the same as the gun on PC WoT. The regular MM gun is the IS-3's BL-9 gun and with that equipped on the IS-6 it sees tier 10 battles.
  9. Every time Alicat69 was on my team today in a top tier tank they camped the red line and snipe or camp so far back that most of the enemy tanks aren't even within draw range. Sometimes I think multiple people play this account based on the stats. How can useless red line capers who can't even get into position to get the enemy within draw range until most of the team is dead win battles? Never mind they are a T67a nd Hellcat stat padder. LOL http://wotlabs.net/na/player/Alicat69
  10. I haven't seen many recent benchmarks, but last summer I saw a bunch of game benchmarks that showed the 3770K with a mild overclock gives the same performance as a R7 1800X in most games with the same GPU. If my Z77 motherboard didn't die on me in 2016, I might still be using my 3770K.
  11. Watch out for a player named Logsdonb. He shot me 5 times from outside of the draw circle in one battle and every time he shot me my tank was moved to a different spot. He was on the hill on Prokhorovka n F0 and I was in F2 and F3, well outside his draw range. Every time he was lit he was in F0 near the red line on the east side including when he shot me. I saw that there are illegal mods that draw tank locations outside of the draw circle and it looks like he is using that mod. http://wotlabs.net/na/player/Logsdonb

  15. T-44-100 becomes the tier 8 Cromwell B, but with better gun handling! Look at that power to weight and terrain resistance! https://tanks.gg/v0922ct2/compare/t-54-mod-1?t=t-44-100~t-44_51211f~cromwell~cromwell-b Its even better with equipment! https://tanks.gg/v0922ct2/compare/t-54-mod-1?e=21.30.5&t=t-44-100___30.5.21~t-44_51211f__30.21.5~cromwell___21.5.18~cromwell-b___21.18.5 Then add some crew skills and food: https://tanks.gg/v0922ct2/compare/t-54-mod-1?e=21.30.5&c=10.-1.-1&k=
  16. I made the mistake of playing late night tier 10 battles.  In 6 of my 8 battles, at least 10 of my 15 team amtes couldn't do 1,100 damage in tier 10 tanks.  Why are they playing tier 10 when they can't do half their HP before dying?

  17. If you are going to have to use the screen built into the laptop, maybe a bigger screen would be a good idea. This is a nice 17" Asus that is currently on sale: https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834234796 It has an open memory slot that is easy to access and the hard drive isn't hard to replace with the SSD you have. I know a couple people that bought it for $200 less when Amazon had it on sale in November. I'd basically get the lowest priced reputable name brand laptop you can with a GTX 1050 ti and a newer i5 or i7. The difference between the 1050 and 1050 ti seems significant and may help with the graphics updates in WoT 1.0. My friends who do laptop and PC repair tell me Asus laptops are a lot easier to get parts for than MSI laptops. I had a MSI gaming laptop that didn't survive a hard fall while it was turned on and running due to a small child knocking it off the table accidentally. They were running at full speed and ran into the power cord. It wasn't a quick/easy disconnect connector, so the laptop got yanked off the table. The laptop it hit the wall and a chair on the way down to the floor. There was minimal external damage however it never worked right after that and frequently locked up. I had an extended warranty through Square Trade. When I sent the laptop in, they couldn't get the parts to fix it, so they sent me a check for the full purchase price and sent me the hard drive back so I could get my data off of it. An extended warranty that includes damage is something to consider. Also, if you have an Amazon prime credit card, you get 5% back in Amazon credit when you use it to purchase things on Amazon. It basically makes the laptop 5% lower in price if you are planning to buy anything on Amazon later.
  18. I just tried pingplotter with the IP addresses of some game servers in Dublin. All of them were 100-120ms.
  19. If I turn off Grand Battles and try to play tier 10 tanks, I often timeout after a 5 minute wait. I usually get a tier 10 battles the second time I click battle with a tier 10 tank. I wonder if Wargaming would ever just add the NA server to the EU cluster.
  20. Peak time is 20,000-25,000 players depending on events going on. Last weekend, it was 24,909 players at the peak. A few weekend ago it was 25,856 players at the peak. When the NA servers were US east and US West my ping to EU1 and EU2 were lower than to NA West from the east coast of the US. Some of the RU servers have a sub 130 ms ping for me.
  21. Finding a sub $1,000 laptop with a display port can be difficult. ANy preference on 15" or 17" laptop screen?
