  1. It takes me about 5 min to set up my mods (using Gamertech's mod pack). And since I can't play immediately when the update goes live, I always wait till the mod pack gets updated (as fast as 1 hr after patch) and hence don't have to suffer vanilla
  2. Would you recommend getting Situational Awareness over Eagle Eye? I just started on my 3rd skill; the optics has been working well for me and I'd like to have even more vision range
  3. Thanks for the clarification. I heeded the (wrong) advice of my plat's caller coz he is a much better player according to wn7 :/ maybe I was being used as a meat shield, hah. That guy couldn't accept that a T57 HT should be behind at least 1 better armoured tank. Even a e50m would have better reliability in bouncing shots than a T57 HT does. I've watched a couple of replays (mostly BeLiAL124's) and they definitely don't lead a charge like what an e100/is-7 might do. Oh well I'm back to solo-ing again; at least now i have the peace of mind that I wasn't wrong. Thanks!
  4. Would you say it is a strictly second-line tank? I have been getting abysmal average damage (2.2k) going on the frontline (attempting to lead the team). As OP as people claim the armour to be, it doesn't bounce half the t8 and most t9/t10, unless they shoot you in the upper glacis. In platoons, I usually lead in front of a E50M or 50B, which causes me to well.. die quickly half the time.
  5. For me, I'd rather have enjoyable games in a platoon than having a stressful time solo-ing. If you solo, it's quite common that half your team dies in under 4 min, or they somehow all camp behind you/in base, leaving you no way to farm damage. So it's less about stats and more about being able to play more games. I've recently started platooning and while it's true that my Kills per game and Average damage went down a bit, my WR definitely went up enough to cover it.
  6. I use this, it's completely free too http://japaneseclass.jp/ Tried wanikani for a while, but I don't find the price justified for SRS x.x android apps are better/free Android apps such as "Anki Aniki" and "Obenkyo" I learn through songs, checking with jisho for any words I don't know, then I translate them and compare with other translations Learning through songs allows me to learn on the go, ie while travelling or queuing etc I also learn through VNs. Using ITH hook, I grab the text out and just check with jisho for every word I dunno. For weird terms that chuu2 chara use, I go
  7. I'm self-taught too, only went to school for the basics (like how to read lol). You use any apps/online sites to learn? Or just pick up bits and pieces from anime? F/SN pales in comparison to F/Z. You might find the quality lower, but the plot is still there and thus nice to watch
  8. Thanks for the review! I almost gave up on this thread as it wasn't receiving any replies >.< 1) Hmm what should I put instead of camo net though? Current I have Vents/Rammer/Camo. Also, didn't the 8.6 update buffed camo nets to automatically camo you 25 - 50m? I left it on because of that. I tried putting myself just behind the breakable fence around D0 aiming down the 0 lane before, but it didn't work out well when the enemy from there simply shoots at me... or should I be positioning there, waiting for the engagement to begin, before moving out of hard cover (house)? 2)
  9. Yea I have been to comiket twice and many other shops that stock doujin in Namba and Akiba... I'd go as far to say that 95% or more is porn. They aren't even worth flipping through anymore; just a waste of time. I remember Fate/Zero was a horror to understand RAW. The old language used by Gilgamesh etc was soooo hard to understand and it's not taught/tested anywhere before (for me).
  10. I find $15 to be pretty reasonable to pay for a translated + imported game, but sadly most people would not agree to stuff they would have gotten free otherwise (see point 2 below). Also, though I say I find it reasonable, I have never bought a translated VN or anime; only the raw ones. But it puzzles me as to why would people target Hirameki just because they don't translate eroge... at that point of the controversy, surely there were already fan translated eroge around? Besides, there's always the staff issue that limits how much/fast a company can translate. It sounds completely insane,
  11. Went to read up about Hirameki on google, though I couldn't find much. Anyway, in Japan, it's not only Visual Novel fans who are crazy enough to think/plan/attempt to kill a company. Pop idol group managers, anime writers, or even arcade game makers have likewise been threatened online/via hate mail. Just read 2ch; it's everywhere and everyday. The more serious/drawn out cases either get reported to the police or end up on tabloid sites then get the police's attention. I dunno about outside of Japan, but censorship has been there for so long that I never (maybe I read too little) seen
  12. Actually, it is the blanket term. I probably will never understand your hate for these 'jerks' who make up a significant portion of the consumer base, but I will stick to using 'eroge' as the general term. Reason being, there is no other less-ecchi sounding terms in Japanese. This post about the word 'eroge' sums it up pretty nicely: http://omochikaeri.wordpress.com/eroge/
  13. Actually, 'eroge' is a blanket term for all VNs Sorry, I didn't know people draw such a clear divide between anime and VN I bet if I hide the text box (yes there's a button to hide it) and the menu bar, no one would be any the wiser... Just thought that the scene I just read was sweet :/ "ま、マジよ。だから、佑斗は私だけを見ていなさい。" simply translates to "Yes, seriously. So Yuuto, please look only at me". Totally clean, nothing suggestive at all. Anyway, I won't be sharing any more images from VNs in the future.
  14. Actually, you might just be one of those few players who have a higher rating than number of battles
  15. Anyone play Dracu-Riot! ? it'll be getting a full english patch by 9th Sept
