  1. Lol, got banned for 14 days on official forums.
    It's been a while since my last ban.

      You have to remember, 90% of WoT players are 10 years old now. They aren't ready for these kinds of words.

  2. Is it only me or does it feel like arty wasn't really nerfed? Trying to play some 279e to share the toxicity and every damn shot is like 500. 

    Also fv4005 sniped my cupola from 400m and highrolled. What's with my 279e and shitbarns killing it

    1. Jesse_the_Scout

      Statistically it looks like it has been... and remember, it can't kill crew anymore with the standard shells. But in practice I don't think it means much. You still have to dry hump rocks to live.

  3. So the HE changes feel like they have made the vast majority of HE rounds absolutely useless. Take the WZ-111GFT, which before this change had 3 very viable rounds: standard AP, 395-pen HEAT and 1,100 damage, 90mm-pen HE which was very reliable in doing chunk damage to hull-down tanks or just straight-up deleting stuff. Since then, I have tired using HE on several occasions (because with new Intuition the reload goes from 11+ seconds to just 4.5 seconds) but it is close to worthless. 200hp damage on hull-down tanks just isn't enough, and the amount of absolutely stupid zero-damage HE bounces on the side of low-health tanks is just ridiculous. Yes, they made HE more reliable. Reliably bad.

      And they won. Now all the shitters are swiping their credit cards and shooting HEAT out of their howitzers instead. HE is out, 99999 alpha cancer shells are in.

  4. T49. End of an era 😞

    The gun handling, accuracy and meme pens on paper tanks are great - but 100-200 dmg on heavies and the inability to track + damage in brawls basically means it's not competitive across enough of the match. The influence is too sporadic. RIP my love.

    1. Jesse_the_Scout

      Jesse_the_Scout

      After testing for a while I am officially triggered over the HE changes. They're just inexplicably bad. They clearly wanted to make HE basically useless against heavier armor and they succeeded.

  5. Yeah, I'm done again.  15-3 4 minute battles, 3 arty per game,  unbalanced MM, EBRs spotting everything in the first 15 seconds, etc...the game is cancer and getting worse with no sign that WG gives a shit.

    1. Jesse_the_Scout

      Jesse_the_Scout

      The irony is I think the game is actually still decent up to and including tier 7 games. Then you roll over to a tier 8 game and all the absolute garbage WG has done starts to set in and it becomes a dumpster fire. The tiers they don't care about are the only ones that survived the years of monetization onslaught.

  6. Trying T71 with a 38% camo build. Well, works at tier 7 too...

      Jesse_the_Scout

      Both the T71 models are secretly pretty darn good. The gold round is too expensive to use, but to my surprise they actually work without gold. Both are super agile with nice APCR base rounds. I've never tried LNES because the base camo is weirdly low.

  7. Arty is going to be nerfed or pubs are crying for no reason?

    Also maybe the "nerf" is a way to remove arty from the game in a sneaky way. Discourage people fro playing it by making arty shit. 

    1. Jesse_the_Scout

      Jesse_the_Scout

      Basically arty will no longer kill your crew, do all of 10% less damage, and if you're on the move it'll hit you less. Meanwhile, that ridge you thought was protecting you doesn't anymore because it will have a higher trajectory. Buff or nerf? Either way it's still a clog in the filter of the game like it always has been.

      The additional stuff like revealed firing positions and arty detection skill might really make a difference, I dunno.

  8. The end is near. WG (EU) is selling the Type 59 again.

    Not in lootboxen. But in a pricey bundle 

    1. Jesse_the_Scout

      Jesse_the_Scout

      People would get over it. WoT sucks now. And many of the mistakes they made can't be walked back: they can't take out arty because they don't have the guts, they can't nerf the OP premium parade because people paid cash money, they can't drop the wheeled crap because they sold a wheeled premium. They painted themselves into a corner; time to start over.

      The anger the playerbase would have over rebuying their garage and regrinding everything would fade if the game was actually good again. What real value is my $500 worth of premium tanks if I don't want to play any of them? WoT 2.0 with no arty, better ammo balance, a more coherent crew system from day one, bigger maps, less power gap between tiers, they could make the game so much better if they leveraged what they learned from the past 10 years.

  9. WoT getting review bombed by their own community... I don't know whether to laugh or feel bad for it. Probably laugh seeing how wargaming has cocked up another thing.

      If I were them I'd have WoT 2 in the works. 1 made all kinds of mistakes that can't be walked back, so it's overdue for a page one rewrite anyway. Run it into the ground so badly that every one will just be so relieved to play a non-screwed up version of tanks that they'll get over paying for their garage all over again. It would work on me, if WoT 2 didn't have arty that alone would seal the deal.

      And they just put bots in low tier games because new players can't get into a battle anymore. They also opened up WoT on Steam a few days ago, which means they're willing to give Steam something like 30% of their revenue because they're so low on new players. Looks like the ship is finally going down.

      Time for some tier 8 premium arties I think. Maybe wheeled? Fuck it, why not?

  12. Finally something in the game for weeaboos, if they can tear themselves away from their waifu body pillows long enough to buy this abomination.

    1. Jesse_the_Scout

      Jesse_the_Scout

      The modest interest I would have in a premium version of a Pz IV with the 75mm is wiped away by the nauseating thought of having squeaky anime girls stuffed in a box back in the darkest corner of my garage.

  13. I need a game like tanks that isn't stupid. Something I can take a break for 15 minutes and play, and then get back to the other thing I need to be doing. Suggestions please.

    1. Jesse_the_Scout

      Jesse_the_Scout

      I used to run a lot, now I have a (probably minor) medical problem that I haven't been able to work through for several years... just got health insurance so I hope to get it resolved soon, but I can't run for crap right now.

      Also, fuck that, that's not fun. y u do this

  14. Why the hell are T-92 3 mark reqs higher than the black dog? 

    Also is t34-3 now good? 3k 3 mark req? WTF?

    1. Jesse_the_Scout

      Jesse_the_Scout

      Because the T92 doesn't have the camo values of a live volcano and size to match. You can actually scout with it.

      T-34-3 they just keep buffing over and over, just got more gun handling and stuff like 2 months ago.

  15. WG got me in the end. I didn't spend any credits on the BM and just spent 51m on consumables.

      I mean, you really didn't spend anything, seeing as you can instantly convert is straight back to credits anyway.

  16. So i just bounced this shot https://i.imgur.com/s4VtVI8.jpg

    a bit to the side of the E75 ass. I checked on Tanksgg at that angle he has around 130mm effective armor. Minimal pen roll with T-34-3 is 139.5. I have no clue what happened and i'm seriously pissed. It was almost point-blank shot, so no distance drop off to explain it. 8UDDPkH.jpg

    Not to mention that the E75 in question is 46% player... 

    1. Jesse_the_Scout

      Jesse_the_Scout

      In tanks.gg I'm getting more like 150mm effective. Just the magic of RNG.

  17. Blackmarket Lootboxes it is

    Wanted a P4/5 but got a P2J instead. 
    Anyhoo. RIP Lowtiers.
    Saw some screenshots. MM at T5 pretty much consists of P4/5s only. 
    Imagine being new to the game and get raped by thos hordes of P4/5s, P2Js, SU76s etc. Must be fun.

      On NA there were unsold IV/Vs left over when it went on sale for 5000 gold last time... the forum dregs were calling it "weak".

  18. Someone in the last 24 hours, somehow got my password, took my account for a joyride, played a couple of games in the ranked battles reward tank, bought some things that couldn't find out what they were and left. I feel violated and curious as he wasn't overly malicious.

  19. OK Black Market is about to start. Let's see how much WG wants for this T-22.

     

    1. Jesse_the_Scout

      I mean, this whole thing is about gobbling up the excessive gold and credits WG has been handing out/selling over the past few years. Even the game resources are being power creeped at this point. Lots of people have piles of the stuff just sitting around collecting dust.

      I barely play anymore and still have millions of credits sitting around... threw 42 mil at it and actually got it. Kinda surprised, expected it to hit 50.

  23. Sand box is testing HE shell changes. Spoilers: it's bad. Like, "how did this make sense to someone?" bad.

    1. Jesse_the_Scout

      Jesse_the_Scout

      Instead of a blast radius it just uses the armor thickness it directly strikes, and it can penetrate objects like map clutter and spaced armor. It no longer actually explodes, essentially. You can't track enemies with it anymore, it will effectively drop the damage even if you know where to aim to hit thin top armor, and it'll be even more effective at ruining paper armored tanks. Overall it's a modest nerf to an already bad shell.

      Being cynical, they want to make you shoot more gold at high tier. It doesn't fix most of the problems and makes it weaker overall. I'm about to log on to sandbox, maybe they've made some compensatory changes...

  24. For every 'chat ban' I get I don't support WG. They want to chat ban me every time some muppet reports me for telling scouts who camp behind me to go F themselves, two can play that game. For every chat ban WG gives me in days, I won't support WG in any monetary support to them (buying tanks, gold, premium, etc) in months. So now that I'm chat banned for 4 days, no monetary support will be given to WG in 4 months. Fuck em. Nothings changed after a two year hiatus. WG supports the shitlords.

    1. Jesse_the_Scout

      Jesse_the_Scout

      I can see both sides of the issue, but the bottom line is no one cares what the rules are in a game where mighty herds of Excelsior bots freely roam the plains. They want rules but will only enforce the ones that won't incur labor costs, which is asinine.

      Bot to grind the modules and then actually play the tank once it's elited. No pain of playing stock, and all you have to do is ruin the game for everyone else.
