  1. Time machine broken or am I just dumb?

  2. I almost did the mission today in the 5a. High caliber gun with a quick reload lets you put a lot of shots down range to do more module/crew damage. IS7 might also work in that sense but the gun isn't good like the 5a. You could try the 430u and bring HE to sling into the back of tanks
  3. FVs and Types are scary, but you can poke them at 300m and snap pen them reliably. If you can do so in some bushes, they might have trouble spotting you. Had an FV4005 hit me for 600 getting into position. From their we just focused the poor bastard down and he didn't do any more damage to us before we killed him. Arty on the other hand, is THE counter to this tank. An M40/43 can reliably do 400 damage a shot. Tier 9s and 10s.....
  4. Exactly The only large caliber HE that is actually scary when you are hull down is arty. The raw thickness of the turret makes other shit not that and when working with another chieftain you can just perma track the idiot in the open and kill them before they do more than 500-600 damage
  5. Was playing one with a friend last night. We pressed RR and proceeded to role the flank of our choosing, since I got my view range up to 490+ (will probably break 500 at some point, without food). The only thing that stopped us was a type 4/5 or any derp tank. We would just go the other flank and out push them. It was disgusting
  6. Thought that pressed alt + f4 once you logged in or the one that uninstalls the game from your computer every time you launch the game?
  7. Match making is only a tiny slice of the pie of WG's reasons this game is dying. Try tank balance
  8. @Fulcrous When you update this post, since we have to open all the status updates to get to the bottom, could you make a status update or a note in the original post or something so we know?
  9. But the difference in dpm currently is less than 100 and the 260 can also reliable hit its shots at range. The 260 turret armor was also very frustrating because there was nothing you could do when someone pressed 2, they ripped your turret apart if you poked. Now, you have a much better chance to bounce their shots. Yes the platform is semi-awkward, but that mobility will allow you to get to better suited positions and micro position yourself much better than a 277. Will the 260 replace the 277? No. They are not competing for the same slice of the pie, but slicing up the pie into e
  10. Oh the glory days, when the game was unbalanced and needed work but there was hope. I almost wouldn't mind going back to that for the most part. Although it had it's flaws, it was way more enjoyable, maybe because I was trash, maybe because it was, but no one will know
  11. My thing with this is I would prefer to fight my same tier tanks more often than not. Yes it's fun to stomp lower tier tanks when I can, but what's the challenge of rolling my head on the keyboard in a tier 8 tank and stomping tier 6s in a mod 1? I would rather constantly fight tanks of my own tier, with having to fight +/- 1 fairly often then only worry about +/- 2 rarely when server pop is low or people are not playing a certain tier. This in theory fucks with lower tiers, but for the most part they already see +/- 1 which is better for newer players. Is this the perfect solution, no? Is thi
  12. Can someone post likely winners to the matches? Who is favored for those of us who know nothing about the sport?
  13. If you want a land version of arty without an actual derp gun here you go. When top tier: Step 1: press rr Step 2: press lmb Step 3: ..... Step 4: Profit When not top tier: Step 1: Avoid high tier derp guns Step 2: press rr Step 3: hide lower plate and turret roof Step 4: Press 2 key Step 5: Still profit because russian bias
  14. What's the requirement to 3 mark the T-34-3? I've been doing around 2.8k combined at its been hovering at 87%. Am I crazy or is it really that high? I checked vbaddict and it said 2400 but that seems low and very untrue.


    1. PlanetaryGenocide


      IIRC Vbaddict's numbers have always been off

    2. hazzgar


      2.8k combined seems high unless only prpls play it. Lowe is at 2600-2700 and it sees t10 tanks, has more vr an better pen.

      Thats what I needed to mark the Hype 59 before the patriot came out. I'm assuming that this tank which is harder to do well in would be lower, but from what I'm finding, I'm hovering 3% lower on my MOE compared to my Type 59. Guess I'll just have to keep playing to see where I can drive the number. I'm also trying to grind credits while doing this so RIP HEAT and food spam. 

  15. Game is officially done. The 263 is just stupid and this is the only tank that I have played that is "new" this patch. 

    1. Purple_Prose


      I expect that they're gonna smack it with the nerfbat pretty hard by the time next patch rolls around. There is no way in hell they're going to let it keep that armor and speed for long at tier 9.

      >>>inb4 repeat of e5 and it takes two years to get balanced

    2. Assassin7


      im looking at it and it seems no different from the tier 10 armour wise.

      in fact I looked at all the new Russian tanks, and they're all fucking stupid. will to play this game is rapidly declining. Will to want the will to play this game rapidly rising. I love this game, i don't want to not want to play it, but fucking hell WG.

      I love this game, I have stuck with it much longer then my friends have. My original group of friends that I really got into the tanks scene has left the game and I still play other games with them, but I have enjoyed tanks too much to quit up to this point. After this patch, and with all the other problems, I just find it hard to start this game up (even when playing with my friends that do play tanks). I really wish this game could be handed off to a competent dev team or NA could branch off into it's own thing because NA is going to die soon

  17. Something with a 1050ti: http://www.dell.com/en-us/shop/dell-laptops/inspiron-15-7000-gaming/spd/inspiron-15-7567-laptop For a 1060: http://www.dell.com/en-us/shop/dell-laptops/inspiron-15-7000-gaming/spd/inspiron-15-7577-laptop I have a previous gen and I love it. I don't know how much you want to spend, but any config will work.
  18. Why is the gun on the SU-122-54 so potato? I can't hit jack shit and it's starting to cost me games. It's the only tank I know to reliable bounce the side of tanks that it should easily pen

      Changed games, problem solved! I just want to have the T10, 430 and Obj 263 all before patch. Have to grind millions of credits


    3. NightmareMk9


      Same here, daily grind SU12254, 430II, IS, T-10, Cent 7/1, WZ111 1-4 (next on track)

    4. snowdude21325


      I play the su-122-54 and strv s1 till I can't take it anymore. Maybe I should try the defender because I don't have to think


  19. Read through the thread briefly, didn't notice what equipment to use for the tank in a general carry bad pubbies sense
  20. I have no idea, but the real question is why are you trying to see how much damage you need? To get better you want to focus on winning. To win more you need better positioning, and better positioning means more damage. Where when you just shoot for damage, you will probably do worse overall, and deal meaningless damage.
