  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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

      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.

  5. 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.
  6. 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
  7. 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.

      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.

      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...)

  8. 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.
  9. Remember when half your shots didn't dive straight into the dirt? Those were good times.
  10. It looks like they did at least nerf a few of the worst offenders at low-mid tier. Pz38t got some noticeable firepower decreases. Luchs got the 3cm gun nerfed meaningfully, it's now nearly useless over 200m. And finally, 6ish years after it became an abomination, the T67 got balanced out. More bloom, longer aim time, less horsepower, it actually feels fair at last. People are bitching about the Pz I C too, it only got increased recoil but hopefully that does something since it fires so fast. Lame patch overall, but at least they did something badly overdue.
  11. What a dumpster fire of a patch. Ruined a ton of low-mid tier tanks and then doomed a generation of new players to rolling uptiered trash tanks while old players farm them with T67 bullshit. I like the hidden easter eggs of shit too, like how the T67 goes from 45 to 70 rounds (1.56) while an average tank like the Stug goes from 36 to 44 (1.22) and the crapwagon Turian goes from 32 to 39 (1.22). What the fuck does WG do all day and how do I get a job there?
  12. I think the past couple of weeks have finally confirmed what we long suspected: new players utterly ruin the game.

      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

  13. Seems pretty good to me. Turret is reliable, upper hull is strong, weak sides and lower are low profile and easy to hide. Gun feels solid overall, mobility's not bad. T29 is probably still better but it's pretty competitive.
  14. Can't die of Coronavirus if you aren't tested for Coronavirus *taps head* So in the U.S. it looks like in keeping with our theme of slow decent into madness we're just going to not test people to artificially deflate the numbers. Then we'll reopen about 2-4 weeks sooner than optimal because the powers that be want a narrative that this was all overblown and political. When the virus is almost spent Americans will be getting back to their usual lifestyle and it will resurge, either as an actual second, smaller wave, or just an unsteady tick of X hundred extra dead people every day for howe
  15. no, that's not how it works. you're in the 0.1%, so you're supposed to get +10,000 win8 stimulus package
  16. I like how the premium double barrel is just an IS-3 that's straight up superior. It's all in those secret soft stats that the yellow mass still doesn't know exists.
  17. The branch changes are like an assignment started the night before the due date, a lot of the swapped tanks are horrendous. What do they even do all day at WG? I could have done this tech tree rework alone in a few months and it would be more coherent.
  18. Been playing it for the on track, not impressed. It's not bad, it's actually good in its CHAI snipe role and can survive at mid range by staying hull down. The problem is that stuff just doesn't win game these days. Farm some damage, but if your team starts to lose you're not going to pull it back by hiding behind hills tickling people for 240 a hit. World of RRR Heavies has no place for you.
  19. Big medicine sr360 won't teach the controversy. What is he trying to hide?
  20. It's called what it is because it's a name that actually describes the virus on the molecular level, the disease it causes, and 19 stands for 2019. Science doesn't just pull naming conventions out of its ass, they follow certain guidelines because people need to be able to understand and differentiate between two things just by reading the name. Carbon Dioxide is harmless, Carbon Monoxide will kill you. Organization of information is a vital component to many fields, because it makes it easier to learn and understand. That's not politicizing. When you CROSS OUT the word and write "my enem
  21. For fuck's sake, guys, he calling it the Cat Eater Ching Ching Bing Bong virus because it's the usual deflection bullshit. Americans have so lost their mind that all any one has to do is say "political correctness" and it immediately divides people back into their camps and smothers any real discussion of the specific problem. Who fucking cares what it's called? They want you to hold China responsible because they didn't take it seriously either. They still aren't.
  22. My city finally instituted a stay at home order for all non-essential businesses. 80% of the businesses are "essential". We're all gonna die.
  23. It's not just about dying, this thing can damage your lungs too. Using a ventilator itself can do it. They're starting to realize the choice is either to lock everything down and kill the economy for a year fighting to keep it under control or just let it run its course and kill a lot of people. The U.S. will do the latter. And they don't have to tell every one what choice they made, they just have to keep pretending with half measures.
  24. 00 is really good, but I also feel like 0000 really represents how this shit never ends.
  25. Sure. Every one want a new car? Cause I'll write that on a napkin and then every one gets a new car.
