  1. Well, I'll be setting up a trial account, and if it all goes well may just move across.
  2. I think I'll start a test account on SEA and play a few games to see how it goes
  3. Yer breaking my barrs Hans Brix!

  4. Out of curiosity, have you played on the NA server at all? If so, would you have any recommendations either way for moving across to the SEA server? As I said earlier, I'd love to be on a server where I could actually do clan stuff, but am hesitant to do so based on everything I hear.
  5. See, it's threads like this that make me scared to move over to the SEA server. On the one hand, I would love to be able to actually get into CW / Strongholds / Tournies, but then I read stuff like this and it throws me off. I keep hoping that they will make server roaming a thing - but I'm not really counting on it happening any time soon.
  6. On a slightly related note - how active is SEA / CW? Being from Australia, I've considered moving across to SEA a few times so that I could actually get involved in proper clan stuff (Timezone issues make it impossible on NA servers) but I keep hearing how awful the gameplay is otherwise and that the server pop is like NA West at 3:00am and you STILL get bad lag from Australia.
  7. So, I've just come back to the game after 9 months away, and am looking for some people to play with. I'm steadily improving, but am still just a blue recent, and I'll say up front that consistency is my issue (that and enjoying the FV304 too much which tanks my Wn8). Still, I'm happy to play with anyone really as long as they know how to click red tanks, so add me if you'd like. Also, I live in Australia, so my normal time on is like 2:30am next Wednesday. e: I have tanks at every tier, but generally prefer tiers 6 and up with the occasional pref 5 for laid back credit grinding.
  8. Add me if you need to scrape the bottom of the barrel. I'm in Australia so my normal game time for North Americans is middle of the night tomorrow.
  9. I already have 2.5k gold sitting around. Was thinking of just spending it because it was free and thought it might be fun to get a low tier crew trainer / funhaver tank
  10. I won 1560 gold in the clan invitational bracket prediction thing. What tank should I buy with it? (I already have the KV-220, Church III, SU-122-44, and JT88)
  11. I platoon to play with good people who are enjoyable to tank with, while also making more bearable the swarms of pubbies out there. So the best encapsulation of that is fun for me, mind you, I like to play well and win, and good stats is a bi-product of that. So, I platoon to play for fun with people who are also decent or better at tanks because winning is also fun.
  12. I really like the list. I might drop the IS-3 down to an 8 because that front armour really isn't reliable at all any more and all the 175 pen russian guns go straight through it. Other than that thoough, the turret, mobility, and BL-9 are all great. APCR out of the BL-9 can pretty reliably pen the LFP on an E-100 which is pretty good imo. I might also knock the JT88 up to a 4. If you can hull down in it, you can really hold lanes all on your own with the DPM and accuracy. I mean, I still regret purchasing it as my Pref 8 (the credit making lured me in!) but I think it's slightly better th
  13. I've gone back and forth on XVM, but overall I think it's a good thing. I definitely use it both from and teamwork and for affecting my decision making concerning the enemy team. If I'm holding a corner with a grey player, I'll generally hold off pushing as I'm likely not to get support from him/her, however, if it's a yellow or better there's a good chance that they'll know to push with me. Likewise, if there's a red player around the corner from me on the enemy team, I'm more likely to push on him as have a better chance that he won't know where to shoot, might not be running equipment t
  14. Well, if you're ever on late night and you're happy to play with a green recent (although have been playing a fair bit better than 1550 recently) give me an invite. I'm happy to play pref 8s, 9s, and 10s.
  15. I like my IS-7 and it's a good brawler for sure, and sometimes that armour and turret just is amazing. IS-8 wasn't my favorite tank, but it wasn't nearly as bad as I had imagined. It gets a very good gun, and the mobility makes it more like a slow medium. I mostly ground through mine by platooning it with 2 T-54 players (who were better than me) as it makes for quite a solid team. The T-54s obviously have the mobility and RoF but the IS-8 can kind of keep up and get to positions to support them with HP/'some' armour and a bigger gun.
  16. I've just started the line. I'm very very early in it still at the D2 - but this tank is actually quite a stomper in tier 3 matches (which mind you are quite rare) as the front armour is pretty darn bouncy and the top gun is potent. Tier 4 and 7 look like they will be the worst step as the tier 5 and 6 both look fine to me.
  17. Thanks for this review and video Valachio. After watching, I jumped into my T30 last night and played around in a couple games and actually did quite well (for me anyway) with a 3.4k and a 4.6k damage game. Also, I'm using less APCR now (i.e. none) and actually making more money as well.

    Movie Thread

    I saw Hercules recently. Although it was a fine action romp that really gets better in the 2nd half, they left a ton on the table. Most disapointing of all though was not using Dwayne Johnson's Charisma and comedic talent. You could tell he was itching to bust out of the flat serious action hero and lay out some fun, but the script and director just wouldn't let him.
  19. Quick Confession - when I get trolled by the game (nothing even that bad, but something as simple as missing a shot that should have hit because the shot went in the 15% of the reticle that was off the target) I swear at the computer and say "Fuck You Game, Seriously, Fuck You" I'm usually a really laid back guy, but I get disproportionately mad at small bits of bad luck. Another is that I desperately want to get my recent up to blue, but keep making stupid mistakes in game that screw my stats and pull me back down. Most days I end up with ~1600 level stats which is made up of a cominb
  20. Just realised the title makes it sound like I'm making a recommendation - is there anyway I can change it to better reflect I'm looking for the things to focus on to improve my stats? That was dumb
  21. So, I've seen a fair number of threads around in which people ask which tank they should play to improve their Wn8. I want to take that question and turn it on its head and instead ask, what are the 3-5 key skills that you need to learn to improve your Wn8 by tank category. I've slowly been getting better, but recently have seen my improvement slow down, and my recent has been pretty steady at 1500-1600 or so with occassional good days at around 1800. What I get from this is that I've picked up some basics, but there are a few things I'm just not getting yet, and so wanted to get a list of
  22. Feel free to throw me an invite if you'd like and are ok with playing with a dark green recent (knowing that you are looking for mainly better players than me - but if you are out of other option ). I live in Australia so my prime playing time is basically 1-2 hours before reset to 1 hour after reset (7pm-10pm Sydney time).
  23. I'm not great at this game but one thing I can say is that players with sub 43% win rates i.e. less than a bot which sits in cap circle and never moves (over a statistically significant number of games) are actively hurting your team and should be TK'd in general. Basically, these players do so badly and do such stupid stuff as ramming own team, shooting team mates, pushing them out, etc. that your team is better off with them dead than their attempt to 'help' the team. If you can team kill them without going blue or getting banned, then by all means do so.
