  1. Legitimately try wot blitz on the windows store. I came back to wot and did a couple of hundred games and got over it but 2k battle into blitz. No arty, 7v7 so you can carry, people talk much less because you can't keep driving while you type, the economy so so much more forgiving, crews don't transfer and skills are universal but don't really matter, no arty, prem ammo does 20% less damage It's basically a microcosm of 1 flank on wot pz. So its pretty easy to dominate the game if you have a solid tank and because theres no arty/vision is far less relevant i think I've had single digit 0 damage games so far. When i came back to pc i was barely scarping 2kwn8 but somehow on blitz that translates to 3700 wn8. But that comes to the downsides which is you lose a lot of depth. Theres a 3d model of exactly where on the enemy you will pen and where you wont so to compensate most things have over buffed armour, but also shell switching is instant so if you'll bounce you can just press 2 right away, even though it does do 20% less damage. Also Vision really doesn't matter and bushes are sparse and don't do very much. Scouting just isn't a role, lights are just a sub-class of mediums which for some reason are given better guns so you have shit like any tier 8 medium getting absolutely bullied the shit out of by a same tier light. And they really lean into everything being badly balanced. Premiums are almost always better. But its also a fucking weird opposite dimension where the tiger 2, Black Prince, ARL and t1 heavy are almost tier breakingly op. But none of that really matters because you'll dominate it if you have a pulse and the only way you can really have a horrible game is when a kv2 or tier 8-10 derp gun american light gets lucky. Which they will because they seem to hit snapshots more often than not. Oh yeah and missiles exist, i haven't actually been hit by one yet but on a fundamental level they are possibly the stupidest thing wargaming has ever done in any of its games.
  2. the North American world of tanks forum is absolute grim. Which makes sense since its almost all middle aged Americans.
  3. lads

    after 300 games back on world of tanks and 500 on wot blitz i can safely say blitz is actually much better

      I've never tried Blitz. Care to tell us why?

      no arty, basically no random deaths or 0 battle games and the economy is functional when you're ftp.

      Basically play insanely aggressively and farm pubs

      downsides are bushes essentially don't do a thing and everybody gets an exact armour penetration model in sniper mode

      i miss the old meta of winning by attrition

  4. big brain strats intentionally not getting brothers in arms so your stats look more solo pubbed

      I used to suicide to avoid getting it (dropping off cliffs/drowning at last second of game) when RN said that the BIA would be taken into consideration for WN9. 

      On my reroll I had 5k games and maybe 200 of them platooned, 0 BiAs but 8 CCs :doge: 

  5. Why is WG SO bad at modelling terrain. Literally lost a 7k damage game because a patton gunning the engine apparently slides backwards on a 20 degree slope.

  6. Wonder why the bothered making it a medium. Heavy tank armour, Heavy tank gun, heavium mobility.
  7. yeah it uses survival rate and damage blocked as their own stat so it still means fuck all
  8. I'm still waiting for Paris to fuck off and die Dragonridge was such a long time ago i can't really remember how it played but it was never that bad and some vintage maps could be really nice (except never ever old redshire).
  9. if you wan a seesion/day stats thing wotlabs probably isn't the best. I think VBaddict does a thing where you download it and it looks at all your replays in a session and gives you lots of stats and shit on it. Theres also mods which do it in your garage but i havent used them for years.
  10. off topic but i don't think i can think of a single time that the wot meta hasn't been cancer
  11. oh yeah and every low roll to not kill somebody you high roll to get another overall. doing the exact same damage every shot would be more weird than good to be honest but my point was when you low roll and don't kill somebody it feels like you got screwed over a lot more than you accually were.
  12. if somebody is on 400 hp and you have a 400 damage gun theres a half chance that you'll have damage roll that is below average, rolling above average is irreverent because they don't have extra hp and will die to anything 400 and above. When i say low roll i mean literally anything under your average damage. On the graph each side has 50%. You can just guesstimate from there in an actual game. I guess you should always play as if you'll roll low because you'll need a backup plan if you do and its something that seems way more unlucky than it accually is. If somebody is on your average damage per shot and you roll low it feels like rng screwed you when there is about a half chance of it happening which you need to plan for and not tilt because of it.
  13. you just gotta take into account that if somebody is on your average roll in hp theres a 50% chance he'll eat a shot
