  1. This thing is cancerous. The bloom stats are stupid low (0.1 move and turret) and a two round burst is basically the optimal gun type aside from the fair and balanced autoreloader. They just drive around snap shot dunking everything with pants-on-head alpha. I'm seeing players with just stupid numbers above their other tier 8s.
  2. Need explanation plz.


    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


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

    2. PityFool


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

  3. The spike is nationwide, it varies from place to place. I've been checking NYT daily because they have a (non-paywall) huge, consolidated data page they update constantly that even shows you hot spots and places of decline. https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2020/us/coronavirus-us-cases.html It's been a little different than I expected; I pictured it flatlining for a while and then gradually going back up, instead it flatlined for a while but then spiked hard core, nearly as steeply as the first time. The weekly cycle just has to do with reporting. Something about they don't re
  4. My first thought looking through the first list was a bunch of the items should be consolidated, like the forward and backward transmission speed improvements. This does actually look pretty good. You'll be able to really compensate for the inherent problems many tanks have instead of just slapping double optics or vents on. My first thought is tanks like the TOG, Matilda BP or PZ IV S, which will be like brand new tanks with a turbo booster. Getting a hugely buffed version of ammo rack might make the FV201 playable. This will bring a lot of vehicles out of mothballs. And we'll still have camo
  5. WG's new monetization plan should be to show every one a new idea like this one and then put up one of those giant charity drive thermometers. If the players donate enough money to reach the threshold they don't implement it.
  6. Still bad. Still get chased down by last dumbass in medium tank. Crazy 2.0 Equipment comes and breaks the game this thing is getting the turbocharger and maybe it'll finally be playable. I don't even understand how it moves so slow; it has decent horsepower, soft stats and top speed, it just won't go.
  7. The players have gotten "worse" in that the bots have gotten just good enough it's harder to tell. I've played some games in the early morning lately, and at mid tier there is a river of bot accounts all with bland, short names, all using the Excelsior to spam games and literally no games in any other vehicles. I shit you not I've seen as many as 5 in one game at a time, more than once. I see them at high tier too, but they shoot and do enough that unless you watch very closely and notice their gun moving too smoothly for a human for too long you can't differentiate them from the grade school
  8. oboy oboy everyone ready for arty 2.0? No more useless 3rd slot, you can get an enhanced accuracy scope for +9% accuracy! 0.71 is now 0.64! Fuck everything!
  9. I mean... I play light tanks 100% to get Campinovka, sit in one bush, and laugh at dumbasses blowing up like it's the 4th of July.
  10. There's a good idea buried in all of this, but like so many of the game's problems it's not the idea... it's the fact WG employees don't know their own game well enough to get the fine tuning right. Ultimately they'll settle on some numbers that range from too little to too much, every one will gravitate to the "too much" equipment, and that'll be the end of it. For example, they split the obviously too powerful vertical stabilizer into "rotation" and "turret + movement" when people who aren't awful at this game will tell you the latter is way better than the former. They should have spli
  11. What do we want to do? Simplify the choice and use of all equipment "Now scroll down to form 7C marked, 'light tanks tier 4-6' and write in your gross credit total. Reference chart B13 to find what your base camo value within a bush is and divide by improved camo net values to find your net camoflague values while in water while being observed with improved binocs from a tank destroyer."
  13. So. You get Province at higher tiers now. Brilliant.

    1. MagicalFlyingFox


      Province up to tier 7

    2. Snoregasm2


      So not high tiers then.

    3. Jesse_the_Scout


      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.

  14. What's weird is this thing is actually good for frontline. Its armor is really good against same tier tanks if you stick to hilly terrain thanks to lots of auto bounce angles, its cross country speed is good to get around, pen does the job, pretty agile. Gun handling could be better for long range, but the accuracy is good.
  15. I mean, in all seriousness this fuckstick runs the FCM and T34 with a bot program for credits. You don't go 40% in a mediocre tier 8 to 48% in a mediocre tier 6. The game is now riddled with botting assholes like this, which is probably why win rates are all so ridiculously low now.
  16. 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.

      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.

  17. "metalheadzz". Yeah, this is what happens when you do a lot of acid in the 80s. Coin toss whether those random strings were him accidentally typing in his username/passwords from various random sites.
  18. They've jacked with the sigma so much I can't hit a tank right in fucking front of me in this thing. It's practically unplayable.
  19. Tank Destroyer Advantage: penetration Pen is 120, other tanks range from 110 to 120 Many screw-ups in this mode, the balance between tanks is definitely one of them. IS line appears to dunk on everything else.
  20. At its height the main forum had a mixture of different player types. As the game got dumber and dumber a lot of the better players drifted away. The main forum is now a blasted wasteland of window lickers, sundowning boomers, and neckbeards trying to flex their 55% win rate because in the land of the blind the one-eyed man is king. The few blurples that still post there are mostly the ones with personalities so insufferable they were/would be driven off Wotlabs when/if they brought that shit here. Basically, the main forum is just like the game.
  21. 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?

    1. king_spaniel


      just says a lot about the average pubbie/human: fearful, myopic and generally useless

    2. M4A3E8sherman


      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

    3. 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.

  22. It's 2020 guys, all new premiums are secret soft stat power creep. This thing has 0.20 instead of 0.21-0.23 on the move and 0.12 turret instead of the standard 0.16, which is huge when you have such an abysmal aim time. So it has the best/equal armor of any IS model yet and massively better gun handling. The cost is lower top speed, 10m less view range, and the soft stats on "normal" and "soft" terrain are really rough, so it'll be slower. It's basically a heavier, punchier, but slower IS.
  23. Remember when a tank with 3.4s aim time was playable? Why the crap did they nerf the gold pen on this thing? It's miserable. If it still had good pen at least it would be a giant killer, as it stands with such lame pen and awful handling you might as well shoot HE at anything with real armor. Sacrifice everything for a big gun and the gun doesn't even work. MOAR EDIT: What an absolute fucking shitbox. Speed and agility of a heavy, crippling gun arc, bad gun depression, huge profile, no armor, garbage aim time, garbage accuracy, weak gold round (Lowe is higher ffs), fixed gun, limited
  24. Frontline.

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


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

    This game is so fucked.

    1. Balthazars


      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.

    2. 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. 

    3. 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...)

  25. Tier 7 is fucking unplayable anymore. Bouncing shot after shot of gold in a goddamn fixed gun TD against the flavor of the month new tier 8 heavy has gotten real old. Basically everything goes to shit from tier 6 on in terms of balance because 8-10 is just constant creep while 1-7 haven't seen rounds of buffs in literally 5+ years.
