    Ezz reacted to Ogopogo in The Bond Shop has finally arrived.   
    Price aside, I'm heavily on the side of mechanically unique content not being exclusive to a mode or limited time exclusive. Non-mechanically unique content, fill your boots, but all this artificial scarcity, limited time purchase, or excluding those who cannot meet the requirements for reasons out of their control rubs me the wrong way.

    15k bonds is pissy easy to get these days, most players who have been in the game for 4+ years will have gotten 5k last year and will get another 5k this year.
    Steel Hunter was sub 40 games for me to get to the last rank and that got me 5k bonds, so that is 15k bonds and a CW reward tank right there for just having an account for a long time and playing one event this year.
    Let's not even talk about farming bonds on tier 10, bonds from Frontline, Bonds from ranked (6-7k I think for reaching top rank, and even easier this season than last), bonds from premium account (25 daily), bonds from the 279e PMs as well. 
    I think I worked out for events and missions this year someone just playing a lot could by the end of the year feasibly farm about 35k bonds alone without farming them on tier 10, so a real no lifer could be approaching 40k - 45k bonds, if you add the two improved equipment from the PvE mode, some people could be literally buying two CW reward tanks and able to pimp out both with a full set of improved equipment.
    Farming bonds when you want at your own pace pales in comparison to the effort needed to earn a CW reward tank in a month long campaign. 
    So it;s not Elitist at all, its about people getting a hard earned, rare reward that now people will get through a much easier route, thus taking away the value of that original award. I chose M60 as my reward tank because I wanted a unique reward tank that was rare and I worked my ass off for it playing pretty much every night, all night, for a whole month, waiting around, getting shouted at by FCs etc. bleeding thousands of credits. 
    If someone had told me I could farm some bonds in my own time and get the tank I wouldn't have bothered.
    It's a shitty move by WG, and it sets a precedent for all reward tanks to go this way, the other CW tanks, the Frontline and Ranked rewards, PM rewards, which will then completely undermine those modes if the reward is available in a much simpler way. 
    There are plenty of options WG could have done for the bonds shop, hell they could have come up with a new tier 10 as a special bond shop reward without screwing over clan players.
    Both tanks are 'meh', and the 215b is downright awful, and the selection of premiums are all bad bar the Patriot and there are better options than that as well (like Cent 5/1), which is another issue with this bonds shop, not only does it piss off CW players by giving away their rewards, there is nothing in it to even interest them either.

    Ezz got a reaction from sundanceHelix in British light tanks are vomit.   
    At least they took out the references to their outstanding alpha.
    Also that drinking game would be rather apt for the thread as I suspect it could be rather vomit inducing.

    Ezz reacted to Diriz0n in FL Tiers   
    A+
    Progetto, Lorraine, LT432, EBR75, Skorp G, Charioteer, 252Y. 
    These are pretty self explanatory. Fast, accurate firepower or dangerous burst. LT432 is all-around and comfortable, EBR is broken. Skorp G and surprisingly a non prem:  Charioteer.....they are fast turret TD. Defender sits on cap like a boss better than any other, being notably smaller and quicker than super heavy tanks like oho or VK, not to mention bouncing out even prem ammo when shot at incorrectly, or at long ranges where aim is unreliable. 
    A
    IS3A, Skoda, Pantera, Emil 1951, T44 variants, Cent 5/1, M41GF, Patriot, SU-PM, WZ-GFT
    Here we have autoloaders not quite as amazing as the ones above, but nevertheless good. Emil 51 is significantly better than Emil l because of mobility. Cent 5/1 significantly better than Victoria or Cent 1 because of mobility and front armour. M41GF still remains a powerful LT, with mobility, DPM, high pen HE, and HEAT to hit ricochet angles like Strv, Alt15, or Chimera whereas LT432 and EBR can't pen them autoaiming with AP/APCR and must stop to aim. SU turret TD is very snipy, but is a tad slower than Skorp G. WZ TD makes up for the loss of turret by having speed and nice front armour. Any T-44 works  (not using dupe 122)  but T-44 Hundred is the way to go, comfortable and flexible. Patriot is listed above Caerns, due to superior mobility. 
    B
    STA1, Indien Pz, Lansen, Alt 15, AMX Hundred, either Caern, T54 Mod 1, S1/UDES, TS5, IS3, 53TP, HK prem LT, M41D 
    High DPM conventional meds. STA and Ind Pz are here because they were greatly buffed. Alt 15 was released pretty good, either gun option work. AMX hundred, though starting to real suck in pubs can be dangerous in all tier 8 battles, at ranges like FL. It is fast and accurate if you wait too, much more than Somua. IS3 is versatile, decently quick, performs better long ranges than Defender or IS3A. Caern, either model some people would say should be A tier, but they are slower than Patriot. lf you are a fan of Strv and sniping in back lines, they are good choices, and fast too. T54 Mod 1 has lower DPM, but is nice all around general performer. TS5 can lead pushes quite well, but then becomes useless as its forced to travel five-hundred meters to find another fight. HK and M41D have good DPM, gun dep, are very mobile but not quite LT432 but good enough.  53TP is quite fast and has high DPM for a heavy, acceptable VR and has accuracy too. 
    C
    Cent 1 and Victoria, FCM5, Chrysler, prototyp, Emil l, Chimera, Ravioli, Senlac, WZ132, obj 416, Borsig
    Cent 1 and Vic, don't have a couple things. They do not have RAAC engine, or front armour. Which make them bland choices in comparison. Same with Emil l, lacks 1951 engine and track traverse, making it slower despite its listed top speed adv over 1951. Chrysler and Prototyp have strong HP/T and track traverse, but are speed capped making them appear slow, always steaming along at thirty km/hr. FCM is fast, has high DPM, good VR but mediocre after  -  sort of like worse T54Mod1 but with DPM and gun dep. More modest DPM conventional meds, Chimera and Ravioli trade well with alpha, but low DPM. They feature gun dep. Senlac and WZ132 are okay.  If you can make obj 416 work, it can be powerful. Borsig has a turret, more DPM than charioteer / Skorp / SU, more camo too. But it lacks mobility, and those three have it.
    D
    Somua, WZ111, lS5, Mutz, Lowe, AMX M4 49, Type 59
    Somua has good auto loader DPM. It has fairly acceptable armour, nice reverse speed. Problems are, it has a speed cap and low HP/T. Also the gun is tremendously inaccurate when dialed in all the way, unlike AMX. AMX has bad soft gun stats, but when it aims in, it is accurate, Somua is instead stuck with short ranges. I tried out WZ111 and IS5 today, they are better for the travel periods outside of fighting than something like IS3 or IS3A, and even when fighting trade the same alpha but with more DPM. But don't offer much else. Lowe and 49 are great defensive, long ranged tanks, but much like TS5 suffer long periods of travel, inactive times. This kills their utility. Mutz has been neatly buffed, but still has low DPM and poor armour. It is a bad indien pz, like how STA2 is less capable than STA1. Type is a less capable T54 Mod 1 or FCM, but if its coloured gold everyone thinks you are boss. Better get general in it. 
    F
    Every other tank most likely a shitter, and the shitters that play arty or spam consumable arty strikes.

    ^^^ exactly. Release broken prems and anything after that will be compared to them. You either keep breaking your game and worsening the issues of p2w fueled power creep or people have a whinge. The fact it is still likely better than the majority of tier 8 meds seems to be lost on people.

    Ezz got a reaction from VTSplinter in Standard B is ... balanced?   
    2018 Balanced TM.
    Personally i find DPM is only really critical if you are going to play ultra brawly levels of aggression so not really std b thing anyway. But the std b is like a leo prot on steroids. Use hard cover / vision then unleash. Add in an extra rule for the auto reloaders is to try not to take the last shot unless it's for a kill or you know you are going to be in transit or something so the longer reload / dpm won't really be an issue.
