  1. Really appreciate the work you do _Dia. Some changes that have happened with PLSGO over the last week(ish): 1. No longer an NTR subclan. We moved over to Petco TS (whether that makes us a PETCO clan or not, Hell if I know). Yes we still are /vg/. 2. Requirements have been updated: Overall: 54% Win Ratio / 1600+ WN8 Recent: No set Recent Win Rato / 2000+ WN8 At least 3 clan wars meta Tier 10 tanks or SPG Keep up the good work.
  2. Whoever at WG that thought a credit mission based on wins was a good idea needs to be fired and condemned.

      Same for people that thought arty in track events are gud ideas

  3. RIP North American Servers. Never had this problem on EU1.

  4. So basically I play the 416 like a non-rocket powered ELC with insane DPM for tier?

    1. Errants


      Yup. Better traverse/reload too.

  5. Back when I was playing the ELC, I was always told to play it like a pocket tank destroyer or a heavily passive scout. That made sense to me since it was fast, had a 175 penetration / 240 damage, and apparently had great camouflage values with the disadvantage of not having a fully rotational turret. I had some success in it and enjoyed it, even if at some points I was bored with the supposed play style. The AMX 12t has been another completely different can of worms to deal with. With the use of a fully rotational turret, I believed I could get a better role as more of an active scout (which is my preferred play style). The issue is the gun handling performance while on the move is, well of a lack of a better phrase, piss poor. Snap Shot and Smooth Ride are a necessity after I finish Camouflage. The gun handling isn’t the big issue I have with the 12t. It’s the fact that playing it as an active scout seems to be a quick way to die (For the record, I don’t just suicide scout and rush for artillery, that’s blatantly destructive to your team) and playing it as a front line passive scout is not rewarding to either experience or WN8. The thing is when I play the 12t as a sniper, it feels like I am not doing my job at all, yet I am rewarded for doing that. Whenever I snipe in the back and see someone yelling at me “12t go scout”, I can’t help but feel like they have a point. Yet when I look at the after battle reports and WN8 calculation, I am always 3rd on the team or better with 2700+ WN8 rating (And before anyone asks/yells at me, no I do not know how WN8 is calculated. I just know that everyone uses it to calculate player skill and a higher number implies a better player.) How is this supposed to be played? Is it a light scout or an autoloader tank destroyer?
  6. Why do I feel conflicted on the AMX 12t? It's a scout, but each time I scout I do nothing according to WN8. When I sit in the back and do damage and let others spot, I do well according to WN8. Why does this system reward this tank for not doing it's job or is it not a scout? I really dont know.

      The trick to playing French LTs properly is to be able to fluidly transition from passive scout to damage dealer and flanker.

      Assisted damage isn't a public stat so xvm can't track it.

      one of the reasone WN8 is flawed.

    4. Yuffy


      because wn8 should be renamed to "DPG rating adjusted based on how bad the global stats of this tank are"

  8. Looking for 215B mentors. Inquire here:

  9. FV215B platoon? Why would I play THAT thing? Are you insane? Yes I am friends. After about 60 games and only a ~53% win rate and with no memorable performances outside of CW's (And that was a loss because I am bad @ tonks and ended up face hugged up against an E3, bouncing his top hatch thingy), I'm not good with this thing and in order to be better, I need to seek help, which is why I am here. Don't get the wrong idea, I love this thing to death. Seeing as this is my only X so far, I want to get exceptionally good at it and not be a potato 3/4 in pub matches and 7/10 of my CW games while I work the E-100 (@ Tiger II: 3/4 upgraded, 2nd gun), 50B (@ AMX 1945: only turret and top gun researched), and Lep 1 (@ PZ III/IV: fully researched, working on VK 30.01D) lines on my own. Not many people talk about this tank in comparison to other X's from what I can see, so online info is limited. The tl;dr version: I am looking for brave and good 215B drivers that are willing to work with me and teach me the proper way to play this tank based on the maps and situational plays. I will be on around 10PM EST (22:00EST) 7PM PST (19:00PST) this Saturday (Traveling home for spring break) and will have flexible hours on Sunday and over the next week. I use TS for platoon communications and that is the preferred method for me. Hope to hear from people soon, trying to play this thing well is eating my will to play top tiers alive.
  10. I've made two mistakes I regret: Going down the Brit Heavy line to completion first and playing this weekend. Now I'm out 4M credits and my WR went down by .5%

      Sure felt like it. I didn't know patch day brought out so much bad it made me bad.

    3. Mami_Momoe


      Ha... Well, you've learnt your lesson.

    4. besieger


      Poor British, this isn't Navyfield. I like Kongou too, though.

  11. 'FV215B' successfully purchased. Spent : 4,270,000. I can't help but feel like I'm making a terrible mistake for my first tier X.

      FV4202 is better :3

    3. SoliDeoGloria


      I agree with Mami, but both still not as good as most trees, but still better than that joke of a chinese tree.

  12. I'm terrible at this game. The ability to make good decisions is key to doing good. I can do that. It just seems that I also make bad decisions and poor situational awareness calls just as much, as easily as a new player still. My "Average" game. http://wotreplays.com/site/602890?secret=372025943dfd5f00d4b1a9732aeb8da9 RIP me.
  13. Do not attempt to reverse side-scrape in a Conqueror. It WILL only end badly...

      Being absolutely terribad at this game. Also you wanna know how my "average" game goes? Go see my replay in the Mentor thread.

    3. Mami_Momoe


      You're still better than me when I was at 2k games played... Pretty sure I was overall yellow back then...

    4. Intumesce


      B-but if you angle at 90 degrees it can autobounce stuff!
