  1. 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. hazzgar

      2km runs. Seriously.

      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

      @Jesse_the_Scout do very short very slow ones as long as the health thing doesn't kill you. I hate running. Seriously I do. Also covid turned me from a decent athlete who not so long ago used to compete to a useless bodybag. 5km is seriously my max right now and I'm of regular weight. It's just a good option if you do it on very low intensity since then it's relaxing instead of being pain at 175bpm. That or pumptrack if you have a bike and a track nearby. 

      Short 15mins games imho are annoying. Not enough time to relax since time spent gaming flies too fast. 

       

      Also you can do what I do and stop making coffee at home, live near a speciality coffee shop and just go get coffee. It's relaxing, you talk to some people (rare in covid times) so it stops you from getting crazy. Not to mention GF gets some time for herself too

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

      So what they're just making it bad AP for no reason?

      Yes.

      An AP round that has even more RNG.

      Heavily armored tanks take less damage, and paper tanks get penned more often since the tracks / gun mantlet / other spaced armor can be penned by HE.

      I tried derping around with T49, non-pens don't do 300-400 damage anymore, but on on the other hand you can get HE pens more easily now.

      LetsMakeTheMagic

      Perfect. Just what my EBR needed. It wasn't bad enough penning T10 meds in the side for 500. Now I can do it even more consistenly.

  3. If you picked vital spark go look in your depot to see the skin. It's friggin' crazy.

      lavawing

      meanwhile wot asia doesn't get the skin, doesn't get the vote, only that clown camo for the Pz VII - in the premium shop :rabble:

  4. I just played a tier 3 game on Abbey. One enemy tank ran out the the little overlook on south side where you can proximity light him but not shoot him. I watched 5 (literal) bots sit there shuffling around for about 5 minutes all pointing their guns at him impotently.

  5. Welcome to every game post-COVID.

      I hope they are wearing masks or, at least, camo nets.

  6. Need explanation plz.

    aDCMJui.png

    WotLabs stats show stats in individual tanks for bajillions of games, but still only 330 "total". In game says about the same, 339 games. Wha?

    1. SkittlesOfSteeI

      SkittlesOfSteeI

      cant you ask for an account reset but keep the prems. Pretty sure kolni did this 

    2. PityFool

      PityFool

      I ran into that exact same guy. His account has been reset, they let you keep the reward tanks and premiums.

  7. So. You get Province at higher tiers now. Brilliant.

      Province up to tier 7

    3. Snoregasm2

      Snoregasm2

      So not high tiers then.

      I had this thing banned right after it came back, it's literally just as bad as the original. I unbanned it reasoning it was only tier 2-3 anyway, and immediately got stuck there in a tier 7. It's an abomination, at least the old version was low tier only.

  8. The game is overrun with bots now. They're more subtle than they used to be, they move and shoot. The only way you can really tell is if you watch one closely; they move their turrets mechanically smooth. Sometimes you notice them because two of them (not in a platoon) will both take the exact same route and then sit against a wall, even when that route leads them to some corner no one ever goes. Add it to the list, I guess.

    1. sohojacques

      sohojacques

      We had a recent run on the Asia servers where you’d have 6-10 bots per side in tier 8. Each team‘s bots would gather  in a random location on the map and mill about like a herd of lost sheep. Led to some epic farming.

  9. So I'm the last tank alive, in the French M10, hiding in the SW corner of Mannerheim Line, near dead. Enemy team has 4 TDs, most full health, and one arty. It's over.

    They wait for ~5 mins to do anything. First TD creeps in, I abuse my tree nest to invisikill him from full HP, ~200m. A couple minutes later a one shot Stug creeps in along the west rock wall and gets even closer, ~150m. I tree abuse and kill him unseen.

    I displace to a different position and when my binocs kick on I spot the last two FULL HEALTH TDs both hauling ass straight east...? A moment later one of them drowns himself...?? Game ends a minute later as a draw?

    Only thing I can figure is they thought the forest was haunted?

      Unfortunately a draw counts as a loss for all intents and purposes but it's still amusing to see the enemy team fail that hard

    4. Jesse_the_Scout

      Jesse_the_Scout

      40k games I've never seen something like that. When I saw them running away, I was just like... what do I do now...? I have no precedent for this occurrence in my brain files.

  10. Frontline.

    Circled to death by EBR in T-54 Proto from full health.

    Respawn.

    Circled to death in BC 12-T by same EBR.

    This game is so fucked.

      Nothing brings me greater joy in a Frontline battle than nailing one of those wheeled bastards and thus locking one of those suckers out of the game for the next 3 minutes.

    3. MagicalFlyingFox

      MagicalFlyingFox

      The pog when I hit a wheelchair driving away from me at 500m away in the Skorp G for the final shot for my General.

       

      Fuck them. I didn't even aim at him properly, the aim circle was centred just off him, to his top right. RNG sent the shot his way anyway because fuck him. 

    4. GehakteMolen

      T-44-100 eats those ebrs for breakfast, too fast to get circled, front plate cant be penetrated, side have russian tracks, so no pens, and barely any detracks and the gun is not that accurate, but for close range its enough.

      And when i hit a wheel, im faster, so i can just chase them and finish them.

      ppl who play M40 of GW tiger P are far more annoying (or u team having no ebr and the other team 10...)

  11. I think the past couple of weeks have finally confirmed what we long suspected: new players utterly ruin the game.

    1. SchnitzelTruck

      SchnitzelTruck

      I honestly cant imagine being a new player in todays game. It must be so overwhelming

      All the "my spot I will push u" cunts. Seriously fuck those people

  12. I have no idea how you people have stood playing high tier all of these years. Not even joking, players in tanks actually get worse at cooperating the longer they play. By the time they hit 15k games they literally sabotage each other because each one of them thinks they're now The Chosen One destined to fulfill The Prophecy by single-handedly defeating the entire enemy team.

      I am still kind of fine with tier 9 where people are still kind of, occasionally, willing to throw away their tanks. Not. Tier. Ten.

  14. You ever commit to a front line engagement because the top tier IS-6 is right behind you, and then when he blocks you from backing up you look back and realize it's stickygreen0? I love this game.

  15. I'm being serious here: what has happened to the game? For a couple months now it feels like half the games are just one sided 15-5 or 5-15 blowouts now. Games are full of sub 45% and even lower players. Literally ~20% of the players seem to be 45% or less turf. I don't even understand it. I get top tier, mid tier, low tier, tier 5, tier 2, tier 8, it all plays out the same. I can fire up a strong crew in a strong tank and it doesn't even seem to matter now, it all wants to slide back to 50%. Is any one else getting this vibe?

      When you dumb down the game (any game/most games) you double down on bad players and run off many of the better players.

  17. Was just playing a game and was a high tier TD... some one on our team says, "thunderbolt is using lagkill". There's a thunderbolt on the enemy team. A few seconds later my game froze. I had to Alt+F4 and relog back in, which takes forever. Any one have any idea what this is about? Nothing pops up right away Googling it.

      Game has been crashing for everyone. This patch broke something major. I stopped playing after the entirety of both teams didnt load into a game, and couldnt even go back to garage until it timed out the battle giving everyone 0xp

  18. forum pubbies be like, "ugh another crappy german tier 5 premium" and i'm just lolololin'

      Take a Pz III/IV, an average tier 5 tank

      Buff it overall

      Give it sheltered MM

      Congrats, you know have a Pz V/IV

      Oh yeah, and it's premium so credits, xp, crews

  19. 2019 and arty can still snap shot you behind 50% cover for 500 damage. And they wonder why no one plays anymore.

  20. Is there something wrong with the WoTLabs data collection or is my survival rate for the past 1000 games actually 6.3%? I'm genuinely confused, as I'm not sure how that would be statistically possible.

    1. kolni

      kolni

      i've seen a whopping 2% survival rate of a 43%er in the EBR, it's totally possible :doge:

    2. Jesse_the_Scout

      Jesse_the_Scout

      My overall survival is absurdly high because I've played a lot of mid tier. I went through a dozen other active players and there is a clear trend of massively lower survival rates in every one's last 1000 games overall. That's a pretty high sample that would imply something statistically significant. So either there's something wrong with the data tracking or something fishy as fuck at work.

  21. You thought WG couldn't possibly get any more stupid, didn't you? Like it had to have peaked?

      That WG guy is saying a bullshit. Not the first time when an official employee has no idea how the game works.

      Someone could test this bullshit on test server and show this little prick the truth. I'm really annoyed by people like him - first to go, last to think.

  22. Frontline gave me an idea for a fun experiment with arty. If I select one player at random and spend 20 entire minutes shooting at only them the entire game, will they actually lose their mind? PLACE YOUR BETS

      Make a list of arty defenders on an official forum and focus on one if you find him in FL. 

  23. For over 20 games all solo, half sheltered tanks... haven't been top tier in any way one time. Well done, WG.
