    TheMarine0341 reacted to Banish in Gold Payouts   
    Relic pays out biased on acceptable attendance however the person must request gold on our forum. The normal payout would be for their monthly premium, and if the gold can be spared anything else they require (Crew re-training...etc). Keep in-mind to pay out 100 members their monthly premium you must be sitting on at-least 8,333 gold per day.
     
    The reason why our format works well, is because it does not add any work-load to the treasurer. He merely needs to accept or decline the forum request, not run around making sure everyone gets paid. The other reason why this works well is because those who do not care or need gold this month (Being rich...won gold from an event/tournament...etc) just do not have to make the forum request and it saves up gold for others who do.
     
    Always remember if you are a DC and your treasurer calls you out, take over double your previous amount to show him who is the boss.

    TheMarine0341 reacted to Never in Major Server Migration Completed   
    Hello!
    As many of you probably saw, we had a big server migration recently. Here's the low down of what happened:
    As I have disclosed in a couple of posts, the database server ran into an issue where it ran completely out of space. The biggest problem was that the database engine we were using kept all the data in a single file, and that file could never be shrunk even if you deleted older records. This caused that file to grow bigger and bigger and bigger over time, until it took up all of the considerable space on that server (1.5TB). When there was no more space left, the database server would crash and the website would go down.
    Fortunately, I managed to work with DigitalOcean to secure a great virtual server which meets all the needs of the database and the website in a single server. This is a 12-core, 48GB RAM server with 1TB of SSD space. The next step was transferring all the data over. This took the longest time. All in all, the database totalled around 5 billion records, and after removing the inflated space from the database engine, clocked in at around 500GB.
    It took 3 days to transfer and import all the records into the new server, which now runs the latest versions of PHP and MySQL for better performance, plus it lets me clean up old records that aren't used anymore in order to reduce disk space, meaning there will always be space available.
    Not only that, but as the website and the database are now on the same server, there is no more issue with the firewall tables getting reset, a problem which, despite a LOT of research, I couldn't actually fix. This was one of the biggest causes of the downtime in the past, as the database server started refusing connections from the website server at random.
    All in all, you can expect WoTLabs to be MUCH more stable from now on.
    Thanks everyone for all the support!

    1) Fuck arty
    2) Fuck arty
    3) Fuck whomever TK's in Ranked. Its cancerous enough to play as is.

    You're a bitch for playing arty in ranked, but intentionally TK'ing in ranked mode should not be tolerated and is equally as bad as playing Arty in the first place

    TheMarine0341 reacted to hall0 in Careful it might be learning - WG goes back on pref tanks changes   
    T34-3 gets anothet buff. And still has to face only T9s. 
    Meanwhile even the last T34-2 drivers commit suicide. 
    This two tanks are the perfect example WG does not care about balance in any way.

    TheMarine0341 got a reaction from igorCRO in Obj 277 - Just a worse 5A?   
    I think you're playing a different IS7 than most of the server, then.
    its armor is bad beyond the turret, and then you're going to be up against Type 5's with prem HE anyway.
    The mobility is good: When going downhill.
    The gun handling means close range engagement only, which will mean even more accurate Type 5 shells.
    Everything the IS7 was good at, theres now 3-4 Heaviums which can take what the IS7 does but only slightly worse, while doing other things MUCH better.
    Hull Down: Super Conq with better APCR and DPM
    Mobility: 5A, 113, 277 and while having just enough armor in the turret, along with the 5A and 113 having better depression to work many of the same positions as the IS7 previously could
    Gun handling: Super Conq, 5A, 113, and 277 all rape the IS7 there, along with better premium ammo

    TheMarine0341 got a reaction from Sapros in For 1.01, what's better for HT 15.3, S Conq or Maus?   
    Super Conq would be the most consistent due to its gun and ability for its armor to defeat premium rounds most consistently. The Maus can probably spike its combined higher depending upon the MM, but you'll be consistently matched against Super Heavies, and the armor is not reliable once prem or standard pen exceeds about 320

    If I won an i7-8086K I'd take the Threadripper swap deal, then resell the Threadripper to buy other hardware.

    TheMarine0341 reacted to Medjed in Intel 10nm Fail (more PR blunders)   
    AMD already has taken back a lot of lost percentages on CPU market with their Ryzen 1/2 series and despite being someone who prefered Intel i couldn't be more happy for AMD(really wish they'd come up with some competitive stuff in GPU market to compete with nVidia). Intel is seriously starting to piss me off. Until Ryzen showed up with a loud bang Intel literally recycled their CPUs from generation to the next one with miserable improvements and all of a sudden when Ryzen came they quickly launched Coffee Lake, after a long time series that upped cores on all their main CPUs with i3 becoming old i5, i5 gaining two additional cores and i7 switching from 4c/8t after a long time to 6c/12t and easily clockable CPUs up to 5+ GHz. Something they claimed was almost impossible. It was really obvious that they can launch monster CPUs pretty much whenever they wanted, but  chose not to because of lack of a competition. Won't even go into Spectre and Meltdown shit. Fuck Intel.
