  1. I skimmed the first three pages of the French forum on WoTlabs and was surprised to not find a dedicated appreciation thread singing the praises of the AMX 301er. I probably missed it, but in the event that one has not been created, here you go. This tank is fantastic. It is a tank that makes me feel like a unicum. It's fast, it begs you to flex and find new ways to use the gun depression, it hits hard (especially for a French tank), and it looks good doing it. It also has higher pen than the French tier 9 TD (because WG balance). I only have 100 games in the AMX 301er but it's a keeper tank for me. Once I get more girls in it (yes, that's my ghetto crew on the left) it will be even better. Share your thoughts on this masterpiece of French engineering, bathed in sexy French blue. Or yell at me for missing the actual appreciation thread.
  2. I have really low overall stats due to playing 12000 games at 12 FPS and an unstable 400 ping connection. However, I have a setup which can run the game worth a shit, and I am increasing my overall WN8 by 1 every 3 games i play. I currently have a 2.2k recent wn8 right now however I switched my mouse out and now I am logging of at a minimum of 2.2k with highs up to 4k. I have previously ran a clan and have calling experience. Although I prefer to deal with small groups. I am able to play 6 days a week on average. I enjoy doing strongholds and clan wars. Tier 10s: IS-7, E-100, T57 heavy, Object 140, T62a, leopard 1 and an E50M. Tier 8's: IS-3, T54-Lightwieght, AMX 13 90, M40/M43, ISU-152, T-32, should have AMX 50 100 soon. I also have every premium tank sold after the type 59 was removed. Tier 6: Give me a week and I'll have all of them. I am looking for a clan that is full of members who are all better than me so I have people to learn from. If your clan is good enough i will also bring a player who has a 1900 overall and a 3k recent. his username is PHAZE_ . Also if anyone has any pointers as to how I can improve my "Resume" above please let me know. I am not very good at writing.
  3. Hey there everyone! Im new to the WotLabs forum. I hail from the NA server Im an alright World Of Tanks player but im just not able to push my recent Wn8 over 2200 I admit I make dumb mistakes sometimes, and I dont know how to effectively play some tanks I do really well in lightish tanks such as the T21 and Cromwell, I have 3 MoEs on both of them. But im horribly bad at playing Tds, which is making my personal missions lag behind because I dont have any tier 7+ Tds I really need some help with learning to play Tds, and improving my play in some medium and heavy tanks I have a mic and can use every voice service available Im open to constructive criticism and being told what Id do wrong...in fact, I appreciate it
  4. Hello and Welcome to my Replay Topic <3 I will hopefully post some replays here if I don't forget it Tanks I play a lot: Other Tanks I play: Replays: IS-4 BatChat25t AMX 30B E-25 Super Pershing FV215b IS-7 T57 Heavy M48 Patton T62A T55A Leopard 1 T110E4 T54 Prototype Challenges Current Goals: 2300 WN8 -> 2450 WN8 57% Winrate -> 59% Winrate 3 Marks on more tanks 9500 Personal Rating -> 10000 Personal Rating
  5. Okay... So obviously per my stats below the ravishing Bruce Campbell photo, I am just barely bordering on unicum recent and a simple teal overall. I'm really trying to reach uni recent, as it's been on my goal list for a long time. Lately I've hit a huge bump in the road and progress has started to go in reverse (high point this week was at 62% and 2405). I think my main problem is the consistency of which I do things match to match. I'm really struggling to find that balance between aggressiveness and passiveness. I think another issue with me is being consistent in getting to key locations on the map and making something happen when I actually get there. For example, when I'm playing my E5 I find myself getting too aggressive and not realizing it until I'm almost alone and then get derped. Or when I'm playing my 140 I'll either lead in without support hoping to get pubs to make a play, or play too passively when my team needs me. I value myself a TD-player born again into a medium player. I love flexing, flanking, and being on the move in general, but also love sniping when opportunity presents, both of which present problems when I play city maps. I think some tips from guys that have broken this barrier either naturally or with a fight will help me push over it myself. I wanna become a better player and I really do believe my potential far exceeds 2300 wn8... I just seem to have hit a skill wall these past few days.
  6. So I used to play this game a lot, but I had no idea stats existed. After about 3.5k battles I got bored and stopped playing. I went pro in Insurgency and got Global in CSGO. After that I needed a new game. After spending sometime looking for a new game I decided to come back to this game. My win8 upon return was like 1480 or somthing. First few days I averaged 2k win8 but now consistently hit 3k+ every battle. HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE ME TO HIT UNICUM?! I'm about 1550 win8 with 4k battles. Anyone got an estimate for me? &gt;:| Also Hello Everybody!!! I look forward to playing with and against all of you! P.S. I've been back for less than a week.
  7. The goal of this post is to share what I have learned since I started playing WOT, and the factors that I think were most responsible for my improvement. While my stats don’t reflect it yet, I have reached the point where I can consistently average 2500-3000 WN8 in a session, provided I follow the method outlined below. When I play on Wi-Fi or when tired or distracted, things don’t go as well. For my first 8000 battles or so, I learned primarily through trial and error. For example, no one told me how to go “Hull down”… I learned it the hard way. I don’t recommend that method of learning the basics. I’m going to mostly focus on how a “good player” with a WN8 of about 1200 and above can quickly become “Great”, so I won’t talk about basics like aiming and maneuvering, instead I will talk about more “meta level” decisions that can improve one’s play. Rule 1: Have Patience. WOT is a slow game. Slow tanks make it even slower, and fast tanks make it easy to rush in too quickly. If you want to play well, you absolutely must exercise patience as all times. In every battle, take the time to do the following: · Aim. (You don’t have to wait for the reticle to fully close, but you should wait until you have a good chance of hitting) o If you can’t safely aim a shot because you know you will get hit if you do, you probably shouldn’t be trying to take the shot. o Don’t immediately shoot if the tank you are aiming at shoots at you. If his shot is going to kill you, it is already too late, and if it won’t, then you are needlessly wasting your shot. o Don’t immediately shoot if the tank you are aiming at is about to get behind cover. Sometimes you will hit, but most of the time you will miss and he will pop back out and hit you while you are reloading. This is especially important if you have a long reload time. (On the flip side, you can take advantage of the fact that many players do this in order to get them to waste their shot) · Angle your armor/Go hull down/Side scrape o It takes a few extra seconds to set up a hull down or well angled position, but it is worth it, especially in tanks that heavily rely on it. For example, the T34 is beast when properly side scraping, but without it, it is quickly burnt toast. o This is a key part of what it means to “play smart”. If you need to round a corner, don’t just drive straight into enemy guns… angle your armor and side scape around the corner. (or let someone else go first) · Look at the map. o Situational awareness is very important. Don’t rely on the “tank spotted” sound to alert you to the tank that is trying to sneak up behind you. If you look at the map you can often see where the enemy is likely to pop up and be ready for them when they do. o How many games are lost because the other team fast-caps and no one was paying attention? Too many. If you see a fast cap is imminent, go back towards base immediately, no matter how slow your tank is. · Wait for the right time to make a move. o Don’t rush in anywhere without support. Wait for your teammates to catch up to you. (If there are no teammates coming to cover you, then you shouldn’t be there in the first place… retreat ASAP.) Rule 2: Play under optimal conditions. Often you may find that even if you are trying to play smart, it just isn't happening. You will play better when you are: · Relaxed. o Don’t play when stressed, rushed for time, or feeling like you feel you must try really, really hard to do well or your life is meaningless. o It is a game. If you aren't having fun, your play will suffer. You will be more likely to YOLO out of frustration or camp in fear, ruining games that you could have done very well in. o If you aren't relaxed, you will get increasingly frustrated if you play bad… compounding the problem and making you play even worse. · Well Rested. o Don’t underestimate this one. I personally notice a session difference of about 1000 WN8 points if I am tired. o Being tired will make you more prone to acting on impulses to YOLO, and more prone to making other bad decisions. · Engaged o Take it one game at a time. You should be fully engaged in each game for its own sake. View each game as a unique challenge, and a chance to do your best. o If you are just trying to get through a grind, performance will suffer greatly. · Connected. o Get off Wi-Fi, upgrade your internet, do what it takes to lower your ping. (Bad ping is rarely WG’s fault.) This may not be possible for everyone, but it is a big limit to your performance. o If you MUST play with bad ping: § Check the ping meter on the top left of the screen every few seconds § Check the ping meter immediately before each shot you take. § Play high-alpha TD’s or arty as they rely less on making precise maneuvers and taking many shots. Rule 3: Choose your tanks wisely. While the best players can excel in any tank, everyone has tanks they enjoy more than others. The simplest way to increase your stats quickly is to focus on tanks you enjoy and do well in. This isn’t any sort of cheating or padding, rather it is simply acknowledging and taking advantage of your personal strengths. · Play tanks you like o You will be more engaged and have more fun, even if you don’t win all the time. As long as you enjoy playing a tank, you will be engaged and you are likely to play better than in tanks you dislike. · Play tanks you like AND do well in. o Many of you have that one tank that gets a 60% win rate. Play that tank more often and your stats will increase. Simple. Over time, you can figure out why you are good in that tank and apply it to your other tanks. o There are many tanks with similar play-styles. For example, if you like the JPE-100, you may also like the FV215b 183. Get as many tanks as you can that fit your playstyle(s), and avoid tanks you know you will do poorly in. WOT is supposed to be fun. No reason to torture yourself. o Try the “OP” tanks. If you find you often get bested by a certain tank (Other than arty) you may want to try that tank yourself. If you can’t beat ‘em join ‘em. You will probably find out the tank isn’t quite as OP as you thought, but you may also find that you really enjoy playing it. Rule 4: Don’t make the same mistakes over and over. · Did a certain position work for you once upon a time but fail every other time since? o If so, don’t go there anymore. Remember which positions work almost every time, and go to those positions all the time. If a position only works sometimes, don’t take the risk. · If you know that making a certain maneuver frequently results in you taking hits or getting killed, don’t do it. o Adjust your play so that you don’t rely on maneuvers that expose you to enemy fire. Try to use cover whenever possible, even if it means going the “long way” to your destination. o Shortcuts are often really a shortcut back to the garage. · Remember what tank you are in. o Don’t take a heavy up the hill on Mines because it worked so well in your light tank. Don’t take your light tank to tank alley on Himmelsdorf. Pretty basic, but be sure to take your tank into account when thinking up your strategy. · Take advantage of common mistakes. o If you often make a certain mistake, often you will find that other players make the same mistakes too. Imagine that you are on the other team. Think about where you would go. Now go obliterate the tanks on the other team that do what you would have done. § For example, if you like to go up the hill on mines, instead of going up, find a spot where you can shoot the tanks that try to go up. § If you got caught in a certain part of a map, next time you are on the other side of that map, try to catch others in the same spot. Often times you will. o Once you identify a mistake that you commonly make, you will be able to identify and punish others who still make that same mistake! Golden Rule of WOT: Put your tank first. Imagine that the Field Commander is in your tank. As a result, your tank is the most important one, and you are not allowed to sacrifice your tank for anyone else. · Sacrificing your tank for the good of your team is NOT good for you or your team. o Is some jerk telling you to do something that will probably get you killed? Don’t do it. o Is someone raging at you and telling you to scout? Tell him to get his camping butt off the red line and find his own targets. WN8 does not take spotting damage into account so if you are in a light tank, you should focus on doing damage, not on scouting. § Lest you disagree with that, remember that most scouts die at the beginning of the game after doing almost no damage. As a result, a scout that stays alive and does the damage of a heavy tank is like having a whole extra heavy tank on your team. Pure profit for the team. · Don’t position yourself between the enemy and the cap on a weak flank. o What if the team all goes to one side of the map? You, being the one responsible player on the team decide to go to the empty side and do your best to hold it alone, whilst raging at the team for being stupid and leaving a flank open. Sounds good? NO. o When you and a few token tanks go to the empty side: § You can’t hold the flank alone so you invariably get steamrolled. § You die doing almost no damage. § You immediately put your team down a few tanks, leaving the rest of the team at a disadvantage. o In other words, if you go to defend a flank alone, YOU ARE CAUSING YOUR TEAM TO LOOSE BY WASTING YOUR TANK. (Ironic, because you were trying to help.) o So instead of reenacting the Alamo: § If you are fast, go the same way as everyone else to secure a decisive victory on that flank. Keep your eye on the map and be ready to drop everything and rush back to defend at the first sign of trouble. § If you are slow, start going the way everyone else is going, but find a spot to defend the cap from that side. Then wait until the enemy rushes through to the cap. Once they are capping, you can start shooting them from a position of strength because you chose a good spot with lots of cover. The cap siren will likely send part of your team rushing back to help you, and they come up behind you and give you support. § The enemy is often reluctant to push past cap, so once they are on cap they will often sit and let you shoot them. o This will probably eliminate many of your bad games. § You still defend, but from a position of strength and on your own terms. § You might actually get help because your team hears the siren and comes back. § You get to farm damage from enemies trying to cap with no cover. · Remember that you can’t influence the battle when you are dead. o A good player will influence the battle as much as they can. If you die, you leave your destiny up to your teammates. They will usually let you down. o Don’t ever rely on anyone but yourself. Expect that you will have to carry your team to victory, and then do it. Bonus Rule: Don’t take crap from anyone. · If they are a good player, they are following the Golden rule. As a result, they are probably telling you that you suck because they screwed up and you didn’t cover for them. o If you go on to win anyway, be sure to respectfully let them know that they are an idiot. o If you lose, that’s on you. Evaluate your own performance and learn from it. What they think you should have done is probably not what you really should have done. · If a good player/unicum rages at you, challenge them to a 1v1 honor duel in the public battle chat. o They will probably accept because it is a matter of personal ego for them to prove that they are better than you. (Of course if they don’t accept you can imply they are chicken.) o When you duel them, calmly play your best and treat it as a learning experience. You will probably loose, but it matters not. Tips for putting up a good fight: § Don’t be the attacker. Don’t camp, but don’t rush in. Let them come to you. They will assume you suck so they may be over aggressive. § Use all the 1v1 techniques you know of. (i.e. side scrape, hull down, etc.) § Position yourself so that you are ready no matter what direction they come from. § Use your favorite tank. This will make you feel more comfortable. If they have it, insist they use it too. That’s all I have. Cheers and good luck out there.

  9. Hey WotLabs, I'm looking for a team for Skirmish 2 and possibly future skirmishes. My recent WN8 is 2050 and WR is 59% For the skirmish I have a KV220, SU85I and ChurchIII in garage and can buy almost any tier 5 and put a decent crew in it. Have TS3+Mic. Can make all nights but may have to hop off for the last 1 or 2 batles. Thanks!
  10. http://wotreplays.com/site/1348773#pearl_river-pimo91-sta-1 Hi! Posted this from tonight in a thread for me trying to get into some kinda clan and figured "Hey they probably have a replay spot in this forums!" so here I am! Just a replay showing to never surrender! Good things can happen, epic games can be had, and that moment we sometimes forget about (Coming back against most if not all odds to win in the last seconds) do exist I know I may not be the best player, but for this game I sure felt like one! Big shoutout tot he two platooned E50 and WT for their epic epicness and allowing me to do everything in my power to help them help me win. Enjoy!
  11. -just before everything else I'm not aware of how this topic sits on this forum so if I should shut my face inform me so And now to the terrible: Team damage In the last few months Ive managed to turn myself blue/get banned in a few different interesting ways including getting miffed and shooting a fool misplacing a shot into a random, a teammate driving in front of my autoloader & happily giving my clan mates lead hugs but its seemed that not all team kills hold the same weight sooo here I am to ask What are the weights of say spraying 20 shells into a "friendly" tank's rear who drove in front of a started spray compared to lobbing a 183 hesh shell into a toonmate in their batchat. How does the system treat shooting tracks off of people and will I be banned for drowning my AFK platoonmate? if anyone has gone through and tested this/ if this has been written somewhere before I would love a link I would place a bet i deserve to be beaten with a stick for posting this but I really would like to know regardless of my shitty humor dragged in here honestly what i posted here really deserves to be tossed in the can, its crap
  12. Hi, I'm playing my KV-5 exclusively to grind out the 6 million silver I need for my obj 140. Just wondering if anyone out there wants to platoon at tier 8 and teach me some stuff along the way, looking for high greens/blues, that's where I'll gain knowledge at this point. Thanks! -Moose
