    X3N4 got a reaction from Zartok in X3N4 | Half man half amazing   
    hit me (that one is still free)
     
    I actually reduced the amount of sport I was doing during the week.  A couple of months ago I was at 6-7 times and doing all kinds of shit: lifting (like 2x), some kind of gymnastics (2x), track and field (1x at least), some Tabata HIIT (1x-2x) and sometimes some 2h+ cycling tours. So what happened is that I was pretty fit in a lot of areas but not really standing out in anything. I really had a flat tire by thursday latest cause going hard 4-5 days in a row just tires you out even when it's different things. Can't sleep 10 hours a day any through which I felt I could mitigate some of the fatigue. Also while I was eating pretty healthy I wasn't really tracking shit. And things like walnuts are healthy but also have a shit ton of energy...
    So what I did is first of all look at my nutrition and start tracking that shit. I ate a lot of fat, sometimes ~3x g of my bodyweight in kg. Pretty low in carbs (but way not low enough for a real ketogenic diet), decent in Protein. So I switched that a tad bit, I still love me my nuts or some really dark chocolate but I'm not going crazy on it any more. Right now I'm consuming a lot less energy which means together with my really decent metabolism I'm losing fat steadily. I'm not big (yet) by any means but I'm pretty fucking ripped, which is the first stage of this thing I guess. And I don't have a super strict diet at all, it's still pretty random actually but working  I'm down 3kg total now.
    What helps me in that regard is that I'm doing intermittent fasting. I gotta wake up at 6am these days and I was able to force feed myself but it took a shitload of time every morning. Fasting makes my life a lot easier cause I can wake up later and have no stress whatsoever, I just eat at work. It also means I have a way easier time hitting my nutrition goals cause I have to eat my food during a smaller window of time. Plus I'm not tired in the morning at all because I didn't force a meal down my throat. 10/10 thing.
    As far as working out goes I'm doing 5x max currently. In the gym I was doing some pretty standard 3x8 reps shit before with a split consisting of A(deadlift/overhead press/chin ups) and B(squats/barbell rows/incline dumbbells). Still doing that but now I'm on a 5x5 routine with pretty heavy shit compared what I was doing before (weighted chin ups for instance). Also tracking it and making sure I progress every workout. Strength has actually been increasing because of that despite me losing weight. Added to that I'm still doing the gymnastics and mobility focused workout because it gives me a nice balance and gets me more flexible. It also has some bodyweight training elements but that's fine, I can schedule the days in a way it doesn't really conflict with the gym. And working out 2 days in a row doesn't kill me at all, I've been doing competitive sports all my youth with way crazier volume and shorter rest periods. Still doing some occasional track and field but I got me a pair of vibrams and I'm trying to get into barefoot running a little. It's a lot more fun than running in normal shoes (which bores me to death) plus it beefs up your calves. Absolute win/win
    Just wrote that down quickly, doesn't cover all of it but you probably get an idea. And your guys and especially you have always been good sports about anything, so thanks back for being around, for providing entertainment and knowledge, you get what I mean. Even though we disagreed on some things (like Garbad shitlord)
    Also official note: I'm now charging 5 € per reviewed replay from now on. And no volume discount, the more I gotta do it the more annoying that shit gets

    Lifting is the number one killer of WoT, I did the same shit to replace it and... It's insane how quickly you can transform your body into that of a god with enough consistency and hard work! What are you doing in the gym/kitchen right now?
    On the point of reviewing replays. Just charge exceptional rates and do it for maximum of one hour a day. This could really add up if you get a consistent customer base like Carbon, even if it isn't fun to do (that's why they call it compensation! :D)
     
    Lastly xena, I have one thing to say; thanks for being around, for the good famu fights, farm shows and advice... In a phrase: GG was close.

    This two steps from hell best of
    Good music to get you hyped, listening to that shit in the gym anyway. The other shit is trance and I assume you're not interested in that since Audiomachine stuck with you.
     
    When I did a REAL tryhard session first of all I never listened to music. Usual preparation was like this:
    Watch a top streamer play for like 15-20 mins. Guy had to be at least as good as me. Observe his minimap while he's playing and get into the decision making aspect of the game. My gameplay was based on four principles. Things I have to look out for when playing. Read them before you start
    Minimap (look on it as much as you can)
    Inconvenience (Kewei put it in one word which is really nice, don't draw aggro from opponents is what I had before)
    Aggression (I'm naturally more of an oldschool, campy player since I've been around already when the meta was a lot different)
    Meatshields (Never be alone) First few games I use the 30s countdown to aim on tanks of my team in all kinds of distances to get my aim going because I don't want to fail at locking far away targets with autoaim. That's something I think I've gotten pretty good at towards the end, constantly aiming and scanning whether I have a direct line of fire through the contour and if I did instantly lock with autoaim. Autoaim+ takes a lot of skill away from this and that's why I REALLY don't like the mod, the advantage it gives is pretty substantial. That's that, hope it helps.
    Thanks bro, glad I could help out.
    Lastly that's what I feel has been my greatest accomplishment in WoT: The month of April
    I don't think a whole lot of guys ever were better on a sample size this large. Coincidentally, this was the last time I somewhat had fun in the game.

    Sorry bro but it's just how I do things. I do them for a certain while and for 100% but once I'm fed up I'm done with it. With this game I always wondered when that moment came but you just know it when it has come that far and that was last week. Even if I would get payed for every stream I wouldn't do it... I had a similar experience with parties&nightlife: I had a blast going crazy whenever I had the time (also during the week a whole lot) but one morning after 2.5 years of clubbing every weekend I literally just woke up and knew that I'm done with it.
    It's really nice to hear I managed to help people out, these forums have been a nice place to share and discuss ideas and concepts related to this game and it has helped me out as well. I might post some stuff if people are interested like how I got into the mindset for a real tryhard session etc .tho

    Thanks X3N4. I echo Dirty. You assisted breathing new life into my pixel tanking. Even at my lower skill level I get yollod and targeted by clickers often, playing solo.
    But WoT is just a dysfunctional arcade game nothing more and nothing less.

    I watch quite a number of streamers, and honestly, i think the problem that leads to unhappiness is that they have a standard for pubs.
     
    There is no standard, and people who expect their teams to do certain things will ultimately be disappointed in the end.

    Just something random guys: This is now the thread in this subforum with the most views as well as the most replies. Stumbled across this lately at work when I was bored
    So thanks to everyone participating, asking questions, posting videos, making videos of my gameplay or just general shitposting, whatever. Never thought this would get so far, I think over the time I myself have made quite some progress as well

    My opinion on this is that Skylex doesn't give a fuck about crew skills and equipment, sometimes his choices are downright retarded. But it doesn't matter because in the grand scheme of things this kind of shit what people get so obsessed about, like if they have camo or recon on their commander or if they put vents or optics on his M46 doesn't matter jack shit compared to everything else. Do I think they both could optimise their damage a tad bit by fixing this? Yes I do. Does it REALLY matter if he averages 4330 or 4350 DPG on his M46? Not really because he does everything else in the actual battle right to even get him to these figures in the first place.
    I'm kind of ranting about these things because if you guys actually want to get good you need to learn to prioritise on what matters and thinking overly much about crew and equipment choices is just a waste of time. Unless you're thinking of putting enhanced suspension and skipping rep on your crews but you guys don't fuck up with your choices like that because most of you asking this already got blue or better stats. That's my take on all these debates.
    Maybe I'll play it a bit on stream but since the T92 top of the tree I don't enjoy high tiers at all.

    As soon as I knew WG was gonna randomly invite people to this sandbox I knew it's gonna be fucked up again. Good multiplayer games have to be balanced around top level competition, the rest is gonna sort itself out anyway because lower level players don't use (or some would say abuse) the mechanics to their full potential. Take CS:GO for instance. I don't like the game but it's working because they gathered feedback from the top players/clans in a constructive environment in order to balance the game out.
    Wargaming kind of wants to do it the opposite way, same with supertest. But how are you going to balance a game when 95% of the feedback you get is from guys who don't even fully understand your game in it's present state?
