ThomChen114 posted a topic in Tanks MediaJust some games in some Russian tanks. No big deal. The first two games occurred right after one another, the last one was much older (about 2-3 months ago)
I just got the SU-100M1...
ThomChen114 posted a topic in Russia...what am I about to get myself into? I've gotten a bit bored with the the ISU-152. Ok, more like frustrated. I don't play the ISU lately as much as I did when I first got it, and maybe because I'm not taking advantage of the TD meta. And I know there's nothing new with how derpy and inconsistent the 152mm BL-10 gun can be in the ISU. I've always preferred medium tanks (and fast HTs like the T-10 and WZ-111 1-4), and I've considered trying out the alt Soviet TD line for awhile. From what I can tell, the SU-100M1 seems to be kind of opposite to the SU-152 (wh
The hidden gem, Obj. 430 II
Scout_in_da_house posted a topic in RussiaOriginally I didn't plan on continuing the 430 line after the 416 but I didn't like the latter that much so I went ahead and bought the tier 9 pancake. Obligatory pic of tenk (will make new when I get home to my beloved GTX660 oh yes) A deeper look into vehicle characteristics; Gun: OK Armor: OK View range: OK Camo: OK Mobility: OK Gund handling: NOT OK Arty-protection: WHAT PROTECTION? Seriously though, this tank is one of the underdogs on the battlefield and I just love it. You constantly have to work to use all the strengths (gun, view range) and to mitigate the weak
SU-100, the thread, 400 alpha in tier 6
Sgt. Pepper posted a topic in RussiaSo, with this tank being one of the more popular clubbers of the tier (aside from the T37 and Hellcat (to a degree)) I feel like the tank deserves its own clubbing thread. So let it begin. I just free xped my way up to it, played it stock for about 40 games, got the 100mm, and now the tank feels potent. I grabbed my 122-44 crew and they are used in both tanks. The armor is good enough, the gun feels nice and the view range is low. I mounted camo net, rammer and vents, I think the view range is too low to use binos (plus no vision skills on the crew yet). Boast your fantastic tales (or
Stock Grind Avoidance
SuperTheBoss posted a topic in Metagame DiscussionHey forums, I did try searching for a similar thread but wasn't able to find one. So sorry if this is in the wrong place but it seemed like a metagame question. I am planning on grinding both Russian heavy lines as well as the high tier meds thru the obj. 416 and not touching the other mot tier med line. my question is: I noticed there are a lot of modules shared between the different lines (specifically guns) and I was wondering what the less painful way would be to unlock the various modules while using the least amount of free XP and reducing bad stock grinds. Does anyone hav
Dem Russian Hevies
The_Illusi0nist posted a topic in RussiaThere is much speculation that the Russian heavy line is truly the best line, whether it's for noobs, or for fun. What is everyone's take on this? I have had the opportunity to play a variety of tier 8's to 10 tanks on CT, and I find that the Russians were... to the point... big, armored, facehuggers. That in my opinion is what a heavy should be. Anyone else's stance on the topic?

WZ-111 is bad (feat. IS-6)
Scout_in_da_house posted a topic in Metagame DiscussionNow that I have your attention, I was planning to make this little comparison a little more detailed with the usual comparison of income etc, but since the mission is over soon and I don't quite have the time to do all of that now, I'll write out my ideas right now. These are two very interesting vehicles, I'm curious to your opinions and what you think the WZ is capable of. First of all, I must of course prove I'm not a baddie Load out is obvious, optics could make sense. Same equipment as my IS-6. Why is it so bad? Lfp is utter trash. When tier 6 mediums have no problem pen
T-44 122mm (D-25-44) viabilityNow before you read the title and tl;dr this post, be sensible wotlabs readers and take a look at the arguments, ok? The meta with the T-44 has been to run the 100mm LB-1, and leave the 122mm to the T-34-2 and the 34-3. The 122's handling has long been regarded as inferior in comparison to the 100mm. I'll reopen this debate to show that the D-25-44 is competitive with the LB-1, and the other Chinese tanks as well. I don't have any firm stat proof at the moment, given that I'm doing my finals and don't have the time to run challenges, so view this as a thought experiment. My preliminary WN8
ST-I... No wait, ST-l topic (STONE)
Scout_in_da_house posted a topic in RussiaIf it is ST-I or ST-l, I'll probably never know. Don't care either, because this beast > World of Tanks. I like to compare it to the E-75, which is the one of the other 3 actual heavy tanks you can find in tier 9. Set-up is the same as all my other typical heavies (will put a nice picture here in the weekend - for now you'll have to enjoy the result of a ménage à troi that is integrated graphics, OS X and WoT) Main advantages Only tier 9 heavy tank that can actually hull down without converting cupola(s) to swiss cheese. Only high penetration guns can punch through the 'weak
Russian Medium Tank crews.
TheMcDanee posted a topic in Can I Has Tanks Related Question?Hello, all mighty unicums with your godlike knowledge from warpack. I have a question regarding Russian Medium Tank crews or medium tank crews in general, now I've seen that a lot of people say that you should take Sixth Sense, Camo, Camo, Camo, Camo < BiA, Camo, Repair, Repair, Repair, Repair. Now I've been playing Medium tanks in general not as much as I've been playing Heavy Tanks, E100 and IS-7 being my first tier 10s whilst the E50 was my second unlocked Tier 9, now I've always taken repair as first skill when it comes to crew skills because it allows you to get your tracks up faster a

Using The Camo Skill On An E-100?
SilentKilla78 posted a topic in Can I Has Tanks Related Question?Hi everyone. I was just watching a livestream by Russian player Kirilloid, who is really good, and I noticed that on his E-100 that he was playing, every member of his almost 4-skill crew has camouflage as their first skill, with repair being in the 3rd slot. Would anyone be able to answer as to why he might do that? I mean, he's a Russian Unicum, so he obviously knows what he is doing, but I have no idea why you'd use repair instead of things like recon, jack of all trades, snap shot,, clutch breaking and even firefighting. Thanks in advance
