Is it finally the end for /wotg/?
/wotg/ - World of Tanks General
All urls found in this thread:
first for anime and 1.0
1.0 NEW BEGINNING
The worst update ever. I never complain but what were they thinking making the game unplayable. From 120 fps on medium to high (fps>"hq" explosions), to 30 sec of loading menu and min settings to get 80fps.
How is it going to work on laptops and the potato outdated systems that poor americans use?
Buy a proper laptop next time
Or a cheap ssd and put the game there
Also a trick to avoid that loading nightmare, join a training room for your first match to preload most of the heavy things, if you didn't know already
And you can tweak effects too, learn what uses what and set it accordingly, externally/in driver settings if needed
Ffs, why are so many WoT players computer illiterates?
I use a desktop.
What's the problem then?
My friend says lowest settings look even worse now
Your friend is objectively blind or stupid
it looks different. colors are aggressive on some maps but overall it's alright, good PS2 game feel
Finally a correct thing
Colors indeed are more saturated, but I think you have filters to avoid that
Min Requirements didn't change. Your PC sucks.
Holy fuck this update has brought out the retards. Either that or WG has decided to reset me HARD. Every. Fucking. Team. fucking crumbles in the first three minutes. These are basically the exact same maps but my teams are fucking driving all over the place like they're playing tier 1 for the first time. Heavies yoloing medium flanks and fucking dying. Light tanks camping with TDs. Fucking mediums pushing me into enemy fire. Team killing at an all-time fucking high. SPGs driving to the front lines and attempting to play as armoured TDs. I am farming damage like fucking mad but this losing streak is fucking ridiculous. Only tanks that don't seem to give a fuck are the object 430Us with laser accuracy and are shitting out Radley Walters like its the aftermath of a budget Indian restaurant. Today is the day boys if you want to get that ridiculous high damage game as long as you play one of the new broken Russian tanks. Today is the WoT equivalent of a gym during the first few weeks of January. Fuck me dead. Worst part is I'm going to continue playing like the shit eating faggot I am.
no explosions, no shells flying
didn't read but I'm sure it's of balance comrade
THE NEW ENGINE IS INSANE
There are here, your pc is surely broken
American here, I get ~111fps at maximum, and the game's on an ssd
Does camoflauge do anything for the E50?
are NA servers even up? I can't connect.
it doesn't seem that they are, I'm sure that will change soon
he had to set special effects to maximum to see any shell flying, I doubt he'd lie to me and so I'm enjoying a bit of schadenfraude.
could somebody upload new map's minimap?
ok so I have more frames and the game looks marginally better despite using lower settings than before, I'm okay with this
those loading times tho, I'm definitely pilfering a SSD from my broken laptop
I see them on every setting, you all must be blind
Also hdd loading is literal shit, went back to standard from smooth ultra, gg programmers
so shiny, and flat...
this tank is a slut
forgot to preload
that live oaks intro
wow the game looks slightly better than before!
I'm too scared to log in in case my potato won't run it anymore :(
wow 1.0 was actually disappointing
I have an ancient toaster with an i3 and a fucking GTS 450 and I get more frames now than before while it looks marginally better
WHERE THE FUCK IS THE RED LINE I DRIVE NORMALLY AND MY FUCKING TANK JUST STOPS BECAUSE THE RED LINE ISN'T FUCKING THERE AND THOSE JEWS MADE THE MAP LOOK ENDLESS FUCK BESIDES THE GAME STILL LOOKS LIKE SHIT AND THE MAPS AREN'T THE SAME I WANT MY OLD SHIT GAME BACK
the minimum requirements stayed the same
is this better?
the map border is now white line that is unmistakable, but yeah, the maps do look somewhat endless now
there's a setting for it
literally in the game options
if there's those red glowing numbers in the options it's not just to be pretty
impyling everyone didn't know that 2 months ago
I wonder how much soviet propeganda is spread out on the maps? I bet you won't find its equivalent in ruinberg or himmesldorf :^)
next time win the war
half the tanks are soviet
I'm annoyed the other tanks in the garage aren't from a selection of tanks you actually own
shit, let me chose which tanks I wanna display
out fucking skilled
the forced splash adverts on every login just weren't enough so they had to fucking add the premium vehicle itself in the back of everyone's garage so they're *sure* that everyone read their autistic ad and MOREOVER have its name permanently show to ensure that the ol' NLP advertising trick works as well
nah fuck this and fuck everything that this trash company stands for, I'm done. This time for real. I was patient when they added the forced ads, I was patient when they intentionally allowed p2w in ranked but this is an entire new level of kikery that isn't actually present in any other mmo. Fuck WG
when you're sperging about forced ads, are you talking about the MOTD?
there is like 1 splash screen every 7 days and of the stuff is ingame events related
premium vehicle itself in the back of everyone's garage
thats not the first time they did this and it doesnt bother me
just get a garage mod if it triggers you that much
p2w in ranked
there is not a single tier 10 premium tank, what are you talking about?
Is anyone else getting this glitch where you get hit but there is no sound indicating the penetration? I keep on thinking I dodged a round only to see I've been hit or I get the hit indicator but no sound.
that bug has been in the new engine since the earliest HD map sandbox, everyone has it
Well, the game looks really nice now. Seems MM is fucked beyond belief though. Havent played a match today that hasn't been over within the first 4 minutes.
I'd seen other people saying their frame rate is unplayable since the update, mine seems to be about the same as before though. Getting absolutely horrible load times though, hopefully that's just down to the servers being packed today
I want one casemate TD between tier 5-7 for comfy camping, what would you recommend?
still no /wgg/
The new maps look nice, some of the background mountains are comically huge though. You feel like you're looking down at the surface of a planet while you drive around
SU-152 and the premium version
Are the graphical changes significant?They even changed graphics engine...
Are there any before/after pics?
Want to play 1.0 with everyone and to be the homoest cat ever and take super cool screenshots,
Have to complete 2.5k word essay on Maoism for tomorrow.
Can anyone explain, what important new things are in the patch, please?
Would it still be possible to run wot on atom cpus?
Looks like a lot of people are getting loaded into games minutes after they've started. Hopefully that means WG will fix it but who knows
I hope you're studying human retardation user
the new things are
cool new looks
cool new sounds
a fatter lorraine
Play WoT for the first time in months because 1.0
5 games, 2x5s, 1x7, 2x8s, all bottom tier
Looks nice but I'm still not going to put time in this again until the MM is fixed on NA.
Are there any before/after pics?
this video should give you some idea.
I want a Type 62.
I OWN A TYPE 62!
tfw you left after the server merges
Blitz clan is BENIS
Asia server has to wait until 27th for the patch
Why are patches always late for us?
I have one as well, it's a cute little guy, a micro type 59, but without being gimped in tier 9 games
tfw I have to play WZ-131 with stock gun and pretend to be a Type 62 without premium status.
Why are patches always late for us?
Asia is far away so it takes longer for internet to reach you
I feel like fjords and fisherman's bay are really unbalanced now
does fisherman's bay favor the south spawn now?
I was just there and we rolled the north team
north spawn now can pretty much move directly to the south spawn via the 1 line and then setup all along the 2 and 3 lines from there
at least that's what I experienced in my whole three battles on that map
I'm a shitter anyway so what do I know, call it a gut feeling
Anyone know if that patch is up for NA? I can't connect for some reason.
have you tried turning off and back on again?
Win 10 battles in a row where you're basically given god mode cheat codes. Heavy tanks bouncing off your LT's armor whilst you snapshot their cupolas at 60km/h. Derpy guns magically derp rounds into target when you're not even aiming properly. Feel like you may one day actually be good at this game.
Lose 10 battles in a row where fully aimed and accurate guns plonk shots into the floor right in front of your target. If you hit an enemy in the side the shot is a "critical hit" and nothing more. Team with worse stats shits all over you and your best players. All skill suddenly gone.
Anyone else feel this way?
Anyone else feel this way?
yellows and teals
Yes. I was in the bulldog and somehow penned 90% of my shots using almost exclusively regular ammo. Then in my T57 using gold rounds I bounced half my shots, all of which seemed to not go anywhere near the center.
I also hate the new graphics even though they look objectively better. I hate them because they are different. There was nothing wrong previously, I don't like change for the sake of change.
makes me think
they should make new maps instead of uselessly polishing the old ones
clearly an HD update was what this game needed
so what did they change in 1.0?
i haven't played in months
WoT now looks like a good looking PS2 game and all maps have been reworked + one new map. Some maps the changes are hardlessly noticeable and others you'll see your favourite spots have been completely removed or made unviable because of some added little bumps.
WoT now looks like a good looking PS2 game
Nigga what. Turn on your PS2 and throw in any game.
World of Tanks version 1.0
MM improved )))))))))))))))))
Balance improved ))))))))))))))
Tier 8 improved )))))))))))
Maps improved )))))))))))))
Clan wars improved ))))))))))))
And on top of that it looks just as good as the first Crysis! What more do you people want?
I don't like change for the sake of change.
[screeching magic bird]
WG can't even get a T-34 right. What the fuck, just look at this thing.
I'll need to dig deeper into this, you can't notice those things unless you have a direct comparison.
Why do I get the graphics setting popup box EVERY SINGLE GAME?
to let reds know they have a settings menu
so that even the biggest retard becomes aware that his old settings might not run anymore for him before shitting up the forums
I've already checked the settings menu and everything looks fine, no more new option indicators.
Shit still pops up
So when were Italian tanks coming out? I'm unsure whether I should dump my p2g currency on a bc or wait for the pizza tree
It will take at least a month, if not more. Also, their super test stats are nothing to get exited about.
Oh so they're trash? I thought that they were autoloaders or some shit, can you post a link to their stats?
How's 1.0 on low look like?
look at all those places you can't go
Is that with 3D render resolution under 100%
a sniper 30b with e50m pen plus autoloader at the expense of being glass cannon
literally how is this trash
100% render res and everything on minimum
You have 1909 base dpm at best, if you fire 1 round. 2 and it drops to 1680, firing 3 shells drops to 1465 and full discharge gives you phenomenal DPM of 1333!
And a 63 second reload for a 1400 dmg clip at tier 10.
get's out-DPM'd by the nerfed tier 10 lights
Wow. Did the Italians do something in recent times to occur the wrath of CYKA BLYAD?
thinkijg dpm matters
Listen here red, dpm is only good in 2 situations.
1. Enemy is caught in the open and their tracks are gone
2. You are fighting 1v1
In all other cases, single shot is king. The very flexibility given to you with those tanks make it an absolute god in the battlefield since you can switch to whatever suits the situation
Why do you think nobody plays the Grille anymore?
why are russian hovermeds so good then
100mm or 122mm on SU-100?
I have to say the HD maps are quite nice
thats up to you, both are good guns at tier 6
dr disrespect is playing this game lol
is this redpilled?
why are russian hovermeds so good then
Because they're heavy tanks with borderline LT mobility and camo as well as TD pen. Doesn't stop me from still being shit though.
Fuck off faggot.
there are 1x easy 8, 2x su152, 1x comet, 1x pershing, 2x m3 lee/grant, 1x t44, 1x is2 and 1x panther
so you have 4 american and russian, one british and one german tank
burger bias confirmed?
not to mention all the american trucks in the soviet camp
IS THIS THE END FOR KEKYBABY?
I have no idea how that guy even manages to get out of bed in the morning at this point.
I'm a green shitter and I want to play a hipster line instead of going up meta tech trees for the umpteenth time. I don't want it to be completely miserable but I want it to be quirky enough to find it amusing when I'm doing well. Bonus points for the upper tiers being obscure enough to confuse pubbies/ catch them by surprise. What should I grind out next?
Every time I watch qb he is tilting
Fuck off and take your e-celeb faggotry with you.
Serious question, literally who?
80K games and this guy still trades in a chaffee with a kv-2
What is Fjords now? How made they Mines even worse?
he plays pubg with a fake mustache and little kids really like him because he yells alot.
They haven't made Berlusconi party into largest party in Parliament
how much got he paid?
it's things like this that let me know I'm on an intelligent team
looks fugly tho
I like to use the ugliest camo available to make it harder for the enemy to discern the actual shape of the tank just by looking at it
were there russian orthodox churches in karelia?
What seems to be the problem here?
Aside from the fugly camo on the IS-3?
There could be some. Finland was part of Russia for 100 years certainly enough time for Russia to start pushing the true™ way you have to speak and pray.
And build churches.
If you use anything but the 152mm on the SU just turn in your man card.
Not appreciating aesthetics
It's over. Not even 1.0. can save this dead general
wot veteran of 8 years
LOOK AT THIS DOODE
he actually changed his title
HAHAHAHAHAHAH JESUS THIS DUDE IS PATHETIC
why would he write that?
strongly worded passive aggressive email incoming to dr discord or whatever
Those big streamers are gone tomorrow and he will be the top dog again.
looks like Solovetski
The mine in Mine is now a castle
Still called Mine
holy fuck thats pathetic lmao
Can I please get an answer to this? I'm halfway through the Panther 2 and I want to know if should retrain my crew.
literally my first thought
castles are built next to mines
i bet you didn't even play kingdom come deliverance you normies
No because I don't piece of shit buggy RPGs anymore. Fucking Todd has cost me too many save files. JRPGs or bust.
Pretty much this, I haven't had a 'close' game yet today, just blowouts all round
Maybe you need to make it a close game instead of complaining that your team sucks.
While that's an entirely valid point I'm not good enough to swing battles that heavily. I'm currently making the games closer by not playing.
pushed into a death star's line of sight by a TD mexican
Why is it always the mexicans?
yeah encroachment is certainly an issue with the mexicans
yes, its quite helpful because you wont get spotted at max vr all the time anymore
with a full camo crew, bia, vents, food and camo painting you can bring your camo to 21% stationary and 16% on the move, without its like under 10% while standing still
that being said a full repairs crew has more priority than camo on the e50
what skills do you have right now you nog
that being said a full repairs crew has more priority than camo on the e50
I can do both luckily. My crew has 11 perks.
Snap shot, Sit Awareness, repairs, deadeeye, sixth sense, BiA, clutch braking, track mechanic, safe stowafe. Pain tolerance, and 65% of recon.
The commander was originally in the E100 so he has more heavy tank oriented perks.
did they implement time of day yet?
Post rare medals.
can i get in a clan? i got 55% wr
search for NOPAN and say lil sent you
u sure thats north america? can only see EU links
what happened to clans like ntr, pzmoe, and plsgo?
They're probably still around they just don't recruit here anymore.
ntr, pzmoe, plsgo, neet
these are all fucking DEAD, god damn this general is depressing
What caused the sudden decline? Throughout 2017 we had population problems but for the most part a thread would die prematurely like once or twice a month. It feels like so far this year we've had less than 10 threads hit bump limit.
They did tho
Which tanks are best in the game? Here's the answer for ya stupid:
Soviet meds, all but one having the lowest alpha at t10
Chinese heavies, average alpha
High RoF TDs, except the 268 v4 because muh armor
Henceforth, your opinion is trash and you should stop playing. Please tell me you're on NA, because I for sure don't want you in my team.
L E N D L E A S E
They added some mines to the northern kemp spot just to justify the name ))))))))
1.0 comes out
OH THE HUMANITY
A turd is still a turd even if you wrap it up in shiny paper.
A true shame AW and WT turned out to be such hot garbage...
new lease on life they said
it will reinvigorate the thread they said
still more enjoyable than this garbage game apparently, even with a playerbase 10 times smaller the threads go by at a lightning pace compared to this shithole
Was referring to the fact WoT has no real competition tho. It would force these fucks at WG headquarters to do something productive instead of spending 3 years worth of goat-fucking to shit out some shiny shaders to this decaying game.
go through destroyable object
oh these new physics are neat
wait, the game hasn't changed a bit though
fucking mexicans in this game i swear
TOG is long
No one is interested in mobile tier cash grab tanks and spam premium to win except people balls deep invested into their tank collection.
Even without competition, whoever the new guy that took over has no idea wtf they are doing, he's like one of those retard people on the forums who think they are a game design god and no one has discovered their genius.
critical hits still don't immediately detonate the affected vehicle
detracking still means your vehicle stops as if the reactor just dissapeared
vehicles can still die with repeated hits to the cupolas
artillery still exists
maps are still non-euclidean nightmares, only this time they're in HD
What did 1.0 fix?
Dirt on tanks )))))))
you have to carry harder!
has console for two years already
did the STB-1 get buffed recently? I've been seeing a ton of them out today
Not afaik. Never understood the point of this tank when the AMX 30B can do its job better.
no point in any tank when the 430u exists
*breathes in, in Russian*
oh cool, AW slowly evolves into its own thing and not just a dumb clone of WoT
is of not balance cyka, needs more WoT)))))))))))))))))
Nippon Stronk is why
Type 5 in every game playing tard gun
whines about getting HEAT-spammed
STB-1 rushes enemy med
Miss at 15m
Miss at 10m
Miss at 5m
Gets shot by Russian med
The absolute state of the japanese tech tree.
What did they do to you this time?
I always hear them laughing at single word sentences in voice chat between each other for no apparent reason:
I also heard what sounded like a restaurant coming from one of their mics, something about meat and tortillas, probably tacos
Never understood the point of this tank when the AMX 30B can do its job better.
The STB-1 was undeniably better for years. The AMX 30B only recent became better with thw buffs.
Even before the AMX took its role, the god-awful accuracy of his gun coupled with the low top speed always made it worse than soviet """meds""" in mid-close range.
Yes but if we compare everything to soviet meds there is no point in playing anything else. I've recently been playing the STB-1 and Type 61 a lot and I love them both. The STB-1 is great hulldown and doesn't have a cupola to get sniped at like the 30B. I also have the "unbuffed" AMX-30 and much the prefer the Type 61 over it.
Well goo for you. Seems like I just can't make the STB-1 work. I keep getting fucked hard in the ass no-lubed by 430Us and missing my shots at close range for no apparent reason. Even hulldown, this tank is so unimpressive that people don't bother and rush me 'till they can get clean shots into my hull.
I keep getting fucked hard in the ass no-lubed by 430Us and missing my shots at close range for no apparent reason
Well the PC meta is fucked right now. If I had to play it with 430Us and Obj 268 v4 running around I'd probably not like it as much either. And as for the shots missing, the tank just straight up do that sometimes. Taking any shot without fully aiming is a huge risk and is only advisable at close range. It took me about 70 or 80 battles to really start digging the tank and get the gun to behave. The gun has a "sweet spot of about 200-300m" so try to face opponents at mid range if possible.
200m is too far away for PC. I guess the console version has better gun stats, because on PC you can't engage a heavy at more than 100m. This is one of the reasons why you see no STB-1s at T10: the few who got it and dared to play it a few years back straight up gave up and started using the 30B instead.
this post is fake news
I'm starting to unironically like the Panther II and it makes me feel ashamed.
Did 1.0 save the game?
No it's still shit.
Is there anything more pathetic than hired streamers who suck ass at the game they are paid to play and drop it the very instant the company no longer pays?
Every single time.
tank kills you with its barrel not even pointed in your direction
Is this ever going to be fixed?
It's their job to do that. I don't support any streamers personally but it doesn't me that they accept checks shill games. At least most of them have the decency to announce when they're are only playing a game because they're paid to.
tfw lost my free female crew because I didn't know where to place them
being this brainlet and indecisive
what's there in 1.0 that'd save the game?
when the apcr kicks in
stop bullying, I didn't have any credits for a new line
couldn't buy a tier 3 or 4 tank in 3 months to house them
You deserve worse than bullying.
Wargaming never really bothered to fix the problems plaguing lower tiers and it seems they have finally run out of new players who were willing to suffer through that bullshit. In addition to that, since the introduction of 3-5-7 playing anything aside from tiers 9 and 10 has become a complete chore. This has made grinding credits or XP a nightmare, even for people who have invested money in the game before.
I assume WG hoped people would had become addicted enough to simply keep spending money to skip grinds, free XP past bad gameplay and buy premium rounds etc. but I guess they overdid it. Especially with CW dead and the end game revolving about some flavor of the month meme tank more often than not.
Free2play fags jumped ship because their money making tiers get little to no attention from Wargaming. Tiers 5 and 6 are absolute trash these days.
At least that's how I see the situation on NA.
Good post. WG really needs to unfuck matchmaking. Literally no one likes 3-5-7 and whoever came up with it should be mauled by wild dogs.
this, also because of 3 5 7 tier VIII is completely fucked, so is credit making
any reason why i should get back in to WoT?
who here somua sm ?
This is your teammate, say something nice about him.
I kinda want to three mark all the Panthers just for the sake of it but the realization that I'd have to give money to Wargaming for two of them keeps me from doing it.
It's such a pain in the ass getting new players into this game. They're so unreliable as teammates.
but it's an M10 my american friend)))
I only managed to get it to two marks during the rental, unfortunately. I hope WG will hand it out for another 24 hours of fun at some point. The buffs since I last played it seem pretty nice.
What's the best tree to go down as a new player?
I have no idea what types of tanks I like to play
Soviet heavies, specifically
MS-1 => KV-1 => KV-1S => IS => IS-3 => IS7
IS line and American mediums will teach the basics.
not going T34 > T-34-85> KV-13 > IS> IS-3
Ah okay, I was playing british because I thought I read the super conq line was good
Just got go past tier 5 as soon as possible. Stay at tier 5 and learn the game
the S.Conq is a very good tank, the line is garbage until t8
KV-13 in particular is terrible
now imagine you have decent (but specific) heavy, KV-13-tier tank and WORSE than KV-13 tank in one line!
Not picking a consistent line
Going up the medium and TD line first then jumping down to the heavies was one of the best grinding decisions I ever made. I had so many engines, radios, and guns unlocked that the grind to upgrade and unlock the IS was only 13 battles in the KV-13. Had I went through the KV's it would have taken way longer.
Had I went through some of the best tanks in their tier it would have taken way longer.
What did he mean by this.
Don't pretend to be retarded user. What I meant was that the XP cost from going through the KV-13 was FAR lower than grinding through two tier 5 and a tier 6. The KV-13 shares a fuckton of modules with the mediums and heavies and the xp to unlock the IS was only 22,000 compared to the 56,000 or so from the KV 85.
If it's a smug anime face war you want then it's a smug anime face war you'll get.
ISIS theme starts playing
Why don't you watch Das Finale right now?
Premium tanks you don't own know show up in the background of your garage
All those shitter tier 8 240 alpha medium tanks
How about no? I already have like 10 power creeped premiums that aren't any fun to play.
Because GuP has always been kinda boring to me. I wish I could enjoy the series as much as most people in this general but the flat characters and lack of real tension just couldn't keep me tuned. First season and cityboat lore were pretty cool though.
Because I would rather wait for subs on a decent rip than spoil it through some shitty ass rip from a handheld camera. Like those lads back when 3.33 came out. What the fuck man.
Nice Spurdo man
T-10 line or IS-7 line? I see a lot more T-10's than the Obj. 262 or whatever.
not already having had the IS-7 and T-10
the new t10 after th T-10 is going to be OP
I found out about this game from twitch ads
I stopped playing for years.
Any timeframe for release?
Why do they keep introducing these OP russian tanks lately? Do they not understand how much they are hurting the game? If this keeps up the only people left will be on the RU server.
you see more t-10s because everyone already has an is7 and they grind exp for the new tier 10 that is coming "soon"
IS-7 line. You have to actively try to fuck up in that tank. That thing is will of Father of Nations in metal
If they understood anything WoT would've stopped being shit years ago.
watched the sponsored streams yesterday to see how normies react to how shitty this game is and to be honest seeing their chats spammed with "P2W GAME LMAO" made me feel so fucking good. The only way that WG's kikery can be stopped is if they finally see through their delusions and realize that their game's reputation is getting absolutely destroyed because there's unironically a premium autopen ammo in the game in fucking 2018
Concisely explain how to make the game better without removing a major game feature such as artillery.
All they care about at this point are high tiers on the Russian server. They haven't bothered to do anything about the middle tiers since the 105mm heat nerf a couple of years ago.
Stop introducing OP heavy and russian tanks, remove 3-5-7, stop nerfing tanks that nobody asked to get nerf, stop "reworking" lines to be more uniform.
I'm not gonna pretend like WoT isn't P2W to some extent, but skill is far more important than having a fancy tank. I get annoyed by noobs and scrubs who act like they'd suddenly be unicum if they spent money.
Wait really? Post a pic of your ranked ammo loadout bro
Premium ammo is available for credits and literally who gives a fuck about ranked. There are also plenty of opportunities to earn free premium tanks to grind credits. I also know a lot of unicums who are almost entirely F2P.
stop nerfing tanks
last tank i remember getting nerfed was the maus, rightly so
adding "weakspots" to type 4 and 5 doesnt count
if anything they have to nerf way more tanks
next tank they will have to nerf is the v4
Didn't they say that a v4 nerf was out of the question and a small buff was more likely?
I remember reading something like that somewhere.
major game feature
Who knows, it's not like WG publishes any official translations of their RU stuff.
Premium ammo is available for credits
oh shit right. Post a pic of your average T10 income br- wait no need, I have global statistics of thousands of games right here showing that it COSTS you money to play the game at T10 (i.e the only tier it actually matters and is balanced around) and that is probably without adding about 5 gold shells per game to the equation. Adding them would probably get the values 20k higher into the negative
btw this pic includes a percentage of premium accounts as well as this is a net income list and the data mined doesn't exclude premium accounts. Without premium accounts this would be even lower
what did they have to say about it? I doubt anything bad because they were sponsored
Yea it's almost like shitters can't make money. Notice how I said unicums not filthy greens like yourself. I don't really care about your stats because I know that I'd be making money with or without a premium account.
artillery isn't a major game feature
more than 50 SPGs
you may not like it, but it is not a small part of the game.
i literally play ranked less tryhard than randoms, no food and minimal use of gold ammo
in my 907
obviously i still spam gold at type 5 or maus when i have to but apart from that apcr works just fine in ranked if you play a medium (why would you want to play anything else in ranked?)
i made way over 1 million credits this ranked seasion, and by that i mean just the profit of credits i made without all the goodies you get aswell
gets btfo by statistics twice
"uhh green yellow red lol I said unicums hehe you'd be printing money if you had 4k wn8 every match bro ;)"
Let's see what the statistics of a random 3.3k unicum (speedyfetus) tell us. Turns out he survives 38.5% of his games, which if he didn't have permapremium for, would mean that at least 62% of his games would be unprofitable due to him dying and having to pay full repair costs along with all the ammo he unloaded in that game (more so if that game turned out to be a loss on top of that). If you check the average Battles Survived for 3k+ unicums you'd get an averaged ~40% chance, or slightly above one third of the games. And we're talking about the best of the best in the game here, not the general population who have around 25-30% survival chance with non-arty tanks.
Of course you'd know all of this if you actually had experience in the game and didn't pretend that you're a unicum who prints money at T10 without a premium account. It doesn't matter how much damage you manage to output in a T10 match, the game itself is designed to ensure that you're at a loss regardless of that. Skill only reduces the scope of that loss but doesn't change the fact that it's a pay2play game at T9 and above
Unlock Leo 1 soon. It's not that bad, r-right?
artillery gets removed
fun and tactics increases
maybe it is major, but it's not anywhere close to being good
indeed. it's worse
All tier 10 nato mediums are pretty useless but some are worse than others. Leo 1 is pretty much bottom of the barrel, even for them.
I didn't get BTFO'd by anything. Your stats are literally meaningless to me because I am outlier according to them. I'm not even a unicum myself and I still make credits at tier 10. Just fucking do damage, it is not hard.
posts a random pic of his stats
"heh this proves my point checkmate"
I'm providing you with actual statistics while you're providing me with random claims of "but my games are profitable bro check out those stats that don't even display what we're talking about"
The only thing your stats prove is that 99% of players suck ass (which everyone already knows). I don't need global credit averages to tell me that shooting 5 HEAT shells and not penning anything in your E100 will be a net loss. I showed my stats to show that you will make credits if you even halfway know what you're doing. I make credits because I win more than I lose, and do more than my own HP in damage. I know I would earn credits with or without premium time because of that helpful little bar that shows your net gains at the end of each match. It's always in the black unless I absolutely sucked that game.
he doesn't know
I showed my stats to show that you will make credits if you even halfway know what you're doing.
Are you capable of comprehending that nowhere in the pic you uploaded is that shown or proven? Unless you upload a statistical proof of 100+ games of non-premium and non-arty gameplay at T10 being profitable the most reliable proof remains the statistics I uploaded
if you make a profit depends on if you survive the battle or not
repair costs are an important coefficient to the profit you make
Average repair cost statistics (this isn't only for fully-destroyed tanks but also partially-damaged).
Alright you seem determined to remain a shitter so I'll let you fester in your credit loss. How about you try not dying and actually start shooting people, then you'll see how easy it is to make credits. I'm not gonna compile statistical data for one scrub who can't even figure out his gun works. Just git gud.
Not just putting them in random Russian tank because Russia is always meta
got btfo by statistics
reverted to adhom again
lol stay delusional (and btfo) my dude
KV-13 in particular is terrible
Not playing it as a very mobile mini-KV-2 for shits and giggles
The part you're failing to grasp is that averages mean nothing to players who are well above average. If you survive 35% of battles, that cost will go down. Not to mention all the money you'd make from DEALING DAMAGE. The reason the AVERAGES are bad is because the average player is absolute trash at this game and often does ZERO damage in a tier X game. If you manage to do your HP in damage in every game without spamming gold you will likely make a small profit or at least break even.
continues to lose credits and can't accept that some people don't suck
"lol not an argument"
I have M4 for that
mfw running the 90mm with Vstab vents & rammer on the T49
no premium account
only T8 premme is KV-5 which is totally useless against mauerbeckams, IS-M's and VK100.1Ps and other T8's
too slow to flank those vehicles
everything has a gazillion pen so your armor is useless
god forbid you get into a T9 matchup
mainly enjoy playing artillery, great class to put some chill music, load up a podcast and zone out
grinding the frenchies because they can shift, run away and get shots in from unexpected angles
still a really low damage line, lucky if I do 1500-1700 damage a game with the batchat 155 55
tank is god awful anyway, same gun you've been using for three tiers, turret is more a liability than an asset, shifts way slower than the tanks before it, third worst SPG winrate in the game
lose money every game, even on wins, because of no premium and low damage potential
been slowly cannibalizing my modules and consumables over the months to fund my play because I still enjoy it despite everything
it doesn't matter, get to the point where I have 1.000 creds, three shells and no way to replenish my reserves
only way to get off the rut is to either buy a forty dollar tank and premium or play the KV-5 for a gazillion matches, making 10.000 profit on wins and 2.000 on losses
Bros, I know artillery aint loved, but I guess this is it for me. One less cancer to click y'all. I had fun with everyone since beta but the grind for creds is even worse than the grind for XP and it's gotten even more absurd every year.
I feel you, but
you deserve this for playing cancer
Start fresh on console. They give out tier 8 premium tanks like pedophiles give out halloween candy.
just play t34 or any t5 medium except the french or czech one
2 games at t5 get you 1 game at t10
its really not that hard to make money in this game without investing in it
they even give out at least one decent premium tank per year in a marathon
t10 is overrated anyways and ppl that play ranked cant afford to put improved equipment on anything but t10s
so you arent even at an disadvantage for not having a t10
What is this formatting?
i hate using punctuation
so i just start a new line instead of putting a period at the end of a sentence
Seems like you play enough to justify actually playing a premium account.
Thanks for giving me eye cancer.
Stop doing that. If you want people to read your fucking posts, type like you actually passed 9th grade english. Fucking ESLs.
He could be a complete poorfag running min settings and everything. For some people 50-100 bucks a year is a lot. It is well worth it like you said though.
Is the ELC still fun?
They killed it.
And my soul.
what did they change about it? haven't played in years, but looking to get back into it for 1.0
That's fair. If it helps, I try to listen when people ask me to shoot something, and otherwise I hold no disdain for anybody in this game, I spread the love equally towards all the little toy tanks on the ground.
I don't have any consoles or want to purchase one just to play WoT. The fact it was free and pretty playable early on grind-wise (at least in the credits front) is what drew me towards it originally.
I'm not living under a bridge or anything but I'd rather spend my money elsewhere than in more ways to play even more internet tanks.
People recommend that I play low tiers, and really I would, but I'd have to play an ungodly amount to advance tank lines that way, and the grind already feels like a problem to me. When I'm playing T5 I'm not making any progress towards the line I'm grinding, I'm just compensating for the fact I don't have a premium account and credits.
At some point you have to ask yourself if making this shift and playing for hours at a time every day, or playing for literal months to move up a tier, is worth it to progress, and I have to say that for me it just isn't. I realize that I sound stupid because then my only option is to buy premium and premium tanks but there you go, neither option is super enticing to me.
I dunno, I'd like to think that if the game requires premium to be playable in a timely manner, I'm just paying for progress boosters before they were a thing in AAA games at that point.
They nerfed virtually everything about it. No joke.
that's fucking lame. it was one of the few scout tanks I enjoyed playing because the gun could actually do work against the higher tiers you were usually matched against since it was a scout
Play Armored warfare where they hand out shit because their game is dying.
Or maybe stick with tier5 tanks, t8-10 is shit now.
AW has utterly shitty arty
I realize that I sound stupid because then my only option is to buy premium and premium tanks but there you go, neither option is super enticing to me.
You don't sound stupid just really cheap. I'm not sure how many battles you have or how much you've spent on the game already, but if you add up the time spent playing I'm sure you can convince yourself that it's worth 50 bucks.
oh shit did I just reply to an arty player?
shitty rng dice game is worth 50 jewgolds so it lets you waste your time ~50% less
Yea he plays only arty with no premium time then wonders why he's broke. Like if you've been playing a for while and are decent, you should have plenty of free premiums in your garage to alleviate credit problems.
lulling someone into cost-sink-fallacy the game
Yea he plays only arty with no premium time then wonders why he's broke.
He also only plays higher tiers and wonders why he's broke
50 dollars isn't that much money for a working adult. I also spend far more time on this game than any game I've ever played. Anyway it's your money so spend it how you wish, but you're gonna realize that the options for tank games are pretty limited.
You're right, they're all fucking shit.
Right now I'm saving for a t-72 off the black market and while grinding the cash, I'm false-flagging opposing countries in hope of starting a local armed conflict that later grows into a global one.
I'm not saying this game won't burn a hole in your pocket if you let, but assuming you have a decent job and don't live in abject poverty, the money you spend on this game is just money you would have spent on cigarettes, alcohol, or overpriced takeout food. Just budget correctly and don't always buy the premium tank of the month
like I do
Spending an entertainment budget is a personal decision. The point is to do it deliberately rather than being one of those mobile whale cucks who spend $200/mo on gems for a game that isn't even fun. I have friends of friends who miss rent payments because they spend their money on a game like clash of clans.
cigarettes, alcohol, food
Guess I did the right choice with czech beer and Cointreau.
I have these stats, feel free to look me up. As far as justifying spending more money on the game, not really. They totally hammered light tanks, the one other class I enjoyed playing, now they're just worse medium tanks with the exception of maybe the LT-100.
I used to be pretty active and spent a good amount of money on the game already (that's when I bought the KV-5) and back then it was a beast. Now it's pretty bad and if anything, my investments have all been but negated and lost any will to throw cash at the game a long time ago. I'm content with logging in every now and then and hanging out with friends, but it's frustrating to find your garage in pretty much the same state you left it, with no hint of progress being made because everything moves at 0.3x speed for non-premium users.
As far as not being able to play just the tanks you want to make progress at higher tiers, this is a very complicated argument. I don't know of any other online game that forces you to retrace progress like WoT just to make more progress in the same line or class, and I never really found it justifiable either. To some extent neither did the devs, that's why premium is a thing and high-tier premium tanks are a thing, to alleviate the linear backtracking you'd have to do, for a price.
I play no mobage or other games that require more than an upfront fee from you, and in my opinion WoT still manages to be worse than all of them in this.
GuP tank when?
Anime paint when?
How have you not gotten any of the free tanks they've given out? If the KV-5 is your only premium you've than you didn't spend your money correctly. When you spend money you've still got to spend it wisely my dude.
Kinda. I played arty in AW 2 years ago and it was fun and useful, but then they nerfed it so hard it's more of a liability than utility, especially after they took away specialist rounds.
Arty in WoT was pure cancer start to finish though, if I could skip arty missions I would've done so.
blitz has anime tonks. Were you expecting PC to get something fun?
Right filename, wrong folder.
Not deleting because killing commies is always worth posting.
I don't know of any other online game that forces you to retrace progress like WoT just to make more progress in the same line or class,
You don't really have to do this. You just have to play better. Your overall stats are pretty mediocre and do suggest that you would struggle to make money. If you win more games and do more damage your profits go way up.
Been in the game for years m8
t. local wargaming cuckshed shill
just get better
to do so just invest more time into our game
Don't listen to this hellspawn, it's trying to grip your leg and drag you down into the basement through a trap door on the floor.
This is against the rules, right?
No, it's fast and safe
Blitz have GuP tanks
IT'S NOT FAIR
He only has 12k battles in 7 years, I have 18k in 1.5 years with a full time job. He should gotten gud at like 3k or 4k battles and never been in this situation. Like it or not, the only way for him to keep playing for free is to stop being yellow.
The free tanks don't seem like a good deal to me, they're apparently so irrelevant that WG is okay with giving them away with marathon events. I imagine a T34 is crap at T10 (which it will most certainly get matched up to all the time, what with all the clanboys endlessly queueing up and grinding their T10's towards absolutely nothing), and an IS-6 is okay but hopelessly outmatched by something like a Defender.
Why should I have bothered? You mention spending your money wisely, well at some point, you have to ration your time wisely as well, and those missions were exactly as described: marathons.
Winning more games is down to heaven's luck when you've got 14 people in your team, plus 15 people on the enemy team, with wildly varying skill levels, and completely unable to be influenced besides being spoken to in chat (which is a total shitshow anyway). You can do more damage and that's a way to influence winrate indirectly, but it's not guaranteed to win you games and in the tank class I enjoy playing, superheavy armor directly curbed profits because tanks are that much more difficult to damage.
Sometimes I think that was part of WG's plan all along, "gentrify" artillery players out of WoT by just simply making the class economically unfeasible to play.
Anyway, I'll probably end this soon, because even I realize that I'm just coming across as bitchy at this point.
Why should I have bothered? You mention spending your money wisely, well at some point, you have to ration your time wisely as well, and those missions were exactly as described: marathons.
Every F2P is gonna either cost you time or money, if you don't have the either one then play something else. Give a fornite a try, it doesn't really require you to invest much time.
To some extent neither did the devs, that's why premium is a thing and high-tier premium tanks are a thing, to alleviate the linear backtracking you'd have to do, for a price.
This is done purposefully because otherwise people would just play tier 9-10 and the lower tiers would be empty. Its already a problem at tier 8 because everyone is clustered there trying to make credits. If you want to play high tiers regularly you basically need a premium account.
Stop playing video games and let's go out drinking.
In 1 hour top, the piano bar, Bucharest. See you there.
I imagine a T34 is crap
You imagine correctly
I have some modicum of time to spend in the game. It's not twenty or even ten battles a day most weeks but certainly three to five seems like a good number to me to avoid burnout. My problem is that progress in WoT is also bound to your credits amount and when you play without a premium account, you actually get neutral to *negative* progress more often than not. That's pretty crazy to me.
Fortnite doesn't have tanks, and I have no interest in Fortnite anyway. About being yellow, well that's just the skill level I'm at. I don't have XVM and I'm not about to install it and become a slave to numbers like 90% of the population of this game.
Maybe devs should integrate lower tiers into high tier gameplay better then. Not literally toss PZ1C's against T57 Heavies but also not brow-beat F2P players into endlessly playing their Churchills and T34's. But that would require the game to be wildly re-imagined and it would probably be pretty goofy anyway.
Dude, those guys are legit. Give him your login info ASAP and don't miss this great opportunity.
this game keeps cheating me with min damage low rolls. fuck you
I don't have XVM and I'm not about to install it and become a slave to numbers like 90% of the population of this game.
You don't have to have XVM to be good because I don't use it either. WoT is a game about numbers no matter how you spin it. The thing that makes tanks better than other tanks is numbers and the reason you can't play is numbers. To enjoy this game properly you need high numbers in everything except aim time. The very thing you dislike about WoT is my favorite thing about it. If you don't improve at this game as you go up the tiers, you'll quickly find the game is very punishing. Too many games allow shitters to shit it up with no consequences, and at least in WoT I can solace in the fact that the scrubs at the bottom of the board probably lost credits.
attack of the clones!
every map is now so fucking flat lol.
and for me Erlenberg is now almost unplayable. what were they thinking when redoing that map.
btw why can't i see the mapborder? i have neither a white or red outline. i just drive into an invisible wall
Yea they were better off never introducing people to the game.
11.1 Gb HDD space
now you have to enable it in the settings
babby, my WoT folder is 40GB
implying Erlenberg was playable before
Sure is fun watching two teams camp opposite ridgelines waiting for the other to move from spawn
Without having to go on a diatribe about this, my point is that progress is way too shitty for people doing grinds with no premium. This has nothing to do with being a shitter at the end of the day - if shitters were getting heaps of gold and rare tanks from losing tournaments or clan wars, by all accounts, feel free to bitch about your numbers and justifiably so. In a normal scenario, the only number that should matter in my opinion is how much time you're willing to invest in it.
In this case, this is wrong, because progress in higher tiers is curbed without a premium account or a premium tank, which require money to be spent. Wargaming knows that, that's why they entice people with bundles, that's why they tease you with a "cleaner" garage for premium time, that's why they put premium tanks in the background now. They make money off of this negative progress, and really good on them, but in my opinion, this shouldn't be a thing for people just making their ways down lines to get the shiny T10 trophy tanks and zero interest in doing boxes, clan wars or tournaments. That's all I meant to say.
yea but since it's flat, cameo is even more important. now NOBODY will move with 100% certainty.
The games I've had on it it's just been the south spawn rolling up the east flank and the north spawn rolling down west. It seems like they made it much harder to effectively defend on those sides.
Is anyone interested in teaming up with a teal shitlord to play in this tourney this Sunday?
pls I don't have any friends to go out with on weekends.
stop being bad lmaoooo
You've been very polite so far so I wish you well but clan wars, tournaments, and giveaway tanks were the best ways for F2Ps to stay ahead. WG wants money, that much is clear. But you can't ignore all the avenues offered to avoid paying real money then go on to complain that it's unfair and impossible for a F2P get by. If you don't want give up money, you gotta give up time.
the "trump-wall" in the middle of the map that blocks every eye-sight from west and east doesn't help either
Can one of you guys post a picture of the new Erlenberg? I'm a consolefag and a little curious as to how they could make a shitty map even shittier.
from 8:25 onwards you can see the middle part of the map that i mean
what manner of gobbledygook is that?
not to play devil's advocate but if the average winrate of shitters in NA is 48-49%, then the kid is three points above the average and that's not amazing but it's not bad or mediocre either, maybe it's just a unicum thing to look at everything that isn't green or purple to be bad but stats are a lot more granular than that
if someone were to be three points above the "average" in society, that's already pretty huge on whatever they excel, if you can't be well off at least on credits by being three points above the average in wot, then something really is fucked with this game and unicums have lost touch with of the rest of the playerbase
my team gets an E100, a T110E5, and a Mauschen as our top heavies
The other team got an IS-7, a Type 5, and a Type 4
Gee I wonder why we lost.
Graphically that's pretty impressive but it definitely looks like it would be worse to actually play on. I also see what you guys meant when you said maps look more open. The details don't just immediately drop at the map border.
Has anyone gotten Grand Battles since 1.0? Those maps probably look cool too now.
Long battle loading time.
Workaround, use SSD, when possible.
So the game can be run on a potato but at the same time you are pretty much required to have SSD for reasonable load times?
It is definitely mediocre and well within the average range. 51% WR is only about the top 60th percentile. Unicums haven't lost touch because every player was a shitter at some point, it's just that the standards are high because they really aren't hard to achieve. If you put the time in and study tanks, maps, and matchups, getting into the top 5% (teal) of players is actually pretty easy because the standards for good are very low. You can be an average player but if you STAY an average you will suffer in this game. What I love about this game is that nobody just starts out good because there is too much to learn. This game challenges players to improve but most are apparently unwilling or unable to do so.
Is it just me or is distance perspective fucked in the new engine? Like something is on the other side of the map and I can't tell if it's close or far. Just played Lakeville and it was like the other side of the lake was a few meters away.
kinda get what you feel, I also got disoriented on fisherman's bay while I was moving in the village in the middle.
Someone explain how to tune 1.0 graphics settings. I used to run the old engine at near maximum getting around 60-90 FPS. Now with the new engine I have most of the settings turned way down and I get 90FPS at short distances but it drops to 20-30 if any background terrain is shown in the distance.
this doesn't sound right, you can't have 90 fps average and drops to 20-30 fps, are you running any mods?
also, if you don't have a high refresh rate monitor, enable v-sync, you're only wasting electricity if your gpu outputs more frames than your monitor can display.
No mods. Before there was no major difference in FPS as the view changed. Now if I'm looking at something nearby I have high FPS but as soon as I turn around to see some of the background graphics it goes to shit. It's like the new backgrounds take way too much power to render.
try reducing draw distance
Has anybody done an in depth guide on what the settings do and what gives the biggest quality boosts for the least performance hit?
what setting filters out retards from getting into my games?
if you stop playing nobody will have to be your teammate
play after 2 or 3 months
uncheck assault and encounter
that's what you get for camperino
I used the Strv 103B and it was by far the best possible tank for ranked:
can do good in both winning and losing matches
Not 1st line so higher to stay alive
308mm base pen with laser-pointer accuracy
All the stupid faggots playing full HEAT bouncing shots after shots
I made over 4M with all the stuff they gave me, and I didn't even go to rank 15. Shit was so easy.
poke out to shoot bad tank
get shitted on by a orange shithead
shouldn't have broken the streak
Shouldn't of popped out
What was tonk?
keep up the good fight my lads. remember when you first started the game and you had fun running about like a headless chicken. winning or losing didn't matter. having fun mattered. hold onto that feeling. try to find it again if youlost it.
I'm actually having a whole lot of fun in the game as of late. I don't know about other people, but I've been slowly and steadily improving myself, while surrounding myself in-game with laid back and chill people. Most of them aren't good, and could very well be considered shitters, but at least they're cool, don't take the game too seriously, and are here to play in platoons an such.
Some things still annoy me in the game, like this damn 268 v4, or the broken T8mm, but overall my enjoyment of the game hasn't gone down, but up.
XVM ruined that for me. Started out having fun until people gave me shit for my stats which I didn't know existed. Then I started concentrating on that to be better. Now I'm decent but I'm just chasing numbers.
I had a ton of fun recently playing lights and farming off bad teams. But with 1.0 something about the visuals makes it really unpleasant to play.
I absolutely dread having to go back to low tiers, fighting 9+ skills crew in premium tanks with a 50% crew stock tank is not fun
At first I felt the same thing when playing on Sandbox, but now I got used to it.
I'm fairly happy with the fact that they improved a couple of maps (Erlenberg actually became playable), but I have troubles loading, my HDD is too slow...
I'm mostly playing high-tier tanks (mostly heavies with some medium and TDs sprinkled in), and shit feels comfy. I'd like to play light as well, but I blow chunks at it.
Is there any reason to keep these tanks?
I haven't played in years.
heh should have started playing 8 years ago when the beta just came out
they are cute :3
T7 can be fun, the rest are shit.
T7 is God-tier, everything else is hot trash.
What is the cutest tank in the game? I vote for VK1602
Over 1500 base exp
Nearly 5,000 damage in tier 9 match
Only 3rd class
how did you get anime behind the stats?
what tier 9 should I purchase first, Conway, Cent 7, Conq or Obj 257?
7/1 is comfy if you have free xp to unlock everything
The Coonway's pretty meta since the buff
another free low-tier american premium
Why can't they give out low-tier tanks for nations that don't have many premiums? I'd rather it were czech or italian.
Play this tank for the first time in months
Get 3 marks on a mediocre 800 dmg game
I guess tier 5s have it pretty rough these days?
gimme your account, ill give ya $50 or something
I feel like I've outgrown vidya in general. Can you still sell WoT accounts for real money to Chinks? About 18 tier 10s, blue stats, lots of clan reward tanks and rare premiums.
yea you can, you'd ironically get $50 or less depending on the server
You'd be surprised how retarded some people are. Sometimes people need reminding constantly cause they have the memory of a goldfish.
Yeah.. its a tier 5 AND its german
haven't played in a really long time. is scout matchmaking still a thing?
no but most of the non-prem scouts are shadows of their former selves, except USSR ))))))))
How do you turn off the stupid shell animation now? This is cannon fire, not rockets.
how is the panther and its line in this game?
which gup product is this from again?
E-50 is still reliable, the rest is meh or worse.
I really don't enjoy playing this now. Even with the graphics turned down everything looks busy and cluttered.
T1E6 is okay ish. The clip is nice but the pen and gun handling suck same as always.
The latest OVA.
they're cool, don't take the game too seriously, and are here to play in platoons an such.
I'm okay with this but some people in my clan are too fucking lax. I have this one friend who if he gets low on HP and is one of the last ones left always says "well I'm almost dead, might as well run out and die". I absolutely cannot stand that attitude, having fun is important but don't throw your tank away just because your yellow mind can't comprehend turning the game around.
I know I'm not the best player either but playing with mostly greens is tough because they refuse to acknowledge the weaknesses in their own game then get mad when I tell them we don't stand much of a chance against top 5 clans in tournaments. I legit had to 1v1 a clanmate in my Defender to make him understand why he couldn't bring a T34 into competitive play.
gib link to download pls, i can't find it anywhere
Why do people insist on taking turretless tanks into tournaments?
Why do people only take fast moving autoloaders to tournaments?
How is it going to work on laptop and the potato outdated systems that poor americans use?
Badly, 29 fps. Luckily there's still arty and World of Warships.
Nice blog post.and you're what color ? You are consistently in the top three every game ?
I haven't played in years does the game still cock block you above T6 or wahtever into premium?
Worth coming back?
Best tank to play without having your team rage at you for dying like a retard while learning again? I think I liked tank destroyers when i quit.
And they fucked up the maps, it will take some time for people to adjust to that.
You have no life, but other players have spent time on oher things than WOT.
No such thing exists
Best tank to play without having your team rage at you for dying like a retard while learning again?
disable chat, noob
turretless tanks are all fucking trash
the inability to peek corners and stop people from circling you is too fucking much, what's the point in playing TDs if they're not fun to play in?
ELC AMX is fun
Because they want to win and versatility is the key to victory.
Does this game have a referral system like in World of Warships?
I started not too long ago and am still on tier III tanks, playing on EU.
So from what I can tell, they fixed about nothing while flattening elevation and removing bushes?
Just like they were doing before the map team decided to disappear for a full 2 years?
I'm just teal but 1.0 is honestly a pain to play because it's brought back some players that obviously haven't played in a while and the map changes make people have a sudden rush of shit to the brain. Somehow because the same maps have been chained slightly the previous meta has disappeared so yoloing is the best approach to all situations. Now come over here and let me impregnate your boipucci to get rid of this excess frustration.
You have no life, but other players have spent time on oher things than WOT.
Are you a 12-year-old girl that just learned to quip in the school cafeteria? Where do you think you are man? Now stop shitting up my games or go do something productive and fulfilling.
I know too much about the game to have fun again.
257 is EZ to play.
1.0 sucks or not?
Okay bois listen up. I feel like dreaming just a bit. Lately I've been thinking about some potential new mechanics WG could add into their game (if they actually did some new work instead of asset-swapping the same 3 tanks). So here's my idea: ARVs.
ARVs would be support vehicles specialized in giving bonuses to allies. They would be weakly armored, have no guns (crazy, ikr) but a decent camo and very good mobility (think light-tier). Here are some potential perks this kind of tank could have:
Giving bonuses to nearby allies, either general (BIA-like) or specific (focusing on firepower, camo, repair...)
Giving higher bonuses by entering a siege mode, where the area and the effect increases, at the cost of lost mobility
Pushing/pulling willing tanks out of danger (think WT-like towing mechanic)
Repair mode: ARVs could heal a portion of its allies' health. When a tank is healed, it cannot move or shoot, and its camo is reduced, but will regain over time some HPs (not all, but a portion of what he lost).
Supply mode: same as repair, but for ammo/consumables
What do you think of it? I know all too well WG will never introduce such a thing, but would play a class like this? What other skills/perks would you introduce to this class? Any other potential classes?
but would play a class like this? What other skills/perks would you introduce to this class?
A class that deals no damage will not be popular because you can't pad WN8. Winning games is mostly a factor of dealing more damage, keeping players alive will help if the players aren't retarded. Healing "Erwin_RommelPL" in his E100 won't help anything besides giving the other team more damage. Respawns would be a better mechanic.
I'm afraid respawns would be too unbalanced: if a team still has a tank like this but the other does not, you can easily imagine the absolute stomp. Still, it would be an interesting idea if it is implemented well. Maybe as a part of a special gamemode where the ARV could revive downed allies and serve as a mobile spawnpoint.
And I'm not sure it would be bad for WN8 farming, quite the opposite in fact since it could get a fuckton of assist damage. Sure, if your allies are retarded, you are doomed, but in a platoon played well it can surely do wonders.
I'm not sure it would be bad for WN8 farming, quite the opposite in fact since it could get a fuckton of assist damage.
WN8 doesn't measure assistance damage. It just seems like an awkward class to implement when a respawn mode fixes that issues entirely.
counter argument: woters are pretty defensive about their not-survival battles and will dislike anything that makes tanks more survivable
But would they oppose class that gives them a higher chance of making high scores? The only real problem I can see with this class is that not many people would play it, and it is highly dependent on your team's quality. But again, lights are kind of in the same spot.
I'm normally the type to enjoy medic roles and support roles in games but WoT just isn't a game tht facilitates that kind of class. The most direct way to win battles is the destruction of enemys tanks, capping flags and staying alive yourself is a secondary objective. He would have a better argument in AW where staying alive is more beneficial because you need bodies for capping (which is the primary objective and means to win).
But would they oppose class that gives them a higher chance of making high scores?
Existence? No. Being driven by retards? Yes, because then they might just as well not be there.
in only one of modes tho
...which has respawns already
highly dependent on your team's quality. But again, lights are kind of in the same spot.
Not really dude. A light can still deal damage and carry if need be. Spotting also directly contributes to damage dealing. If you only have 1 hitpoint you can still carry your team to victory so healing isn't that necessary.
That argument applies to all tanks though, a retard playing a light might as well not play, a camping heavy might as well not be here.
And I'm pretty sure shitters wouldn't want to play a class like this to begin with.
I, for one, would love to see WG implement something like this: I'm the kind of guy that loves playing medic/support type roles, and introducing a class that can play a similar role would be great.
True. FFA isn't probably the space where a class like this could exist. But on a different gamemode with respawns and other objectives, I could see support-oriented classes beoing useful. But again, that would require a lot of work on WG's part...
AW is so dead on PS4 that I doubt a single person has ever played the 15v15 mode. GO is basically the only gamemode.
that would require a lot of work on WG's part
AW on PS4 is DOA, they can't even keep PC AW alive.
Smoke grenades and smoke arty shells would be a better way to allow support play in the game. Arty players already see themselves as the supporting role even though everyone hates them.
Are we talking about Armored Warfare here? If we are, it's a shame as I actually liked that PvE mode. The game itself was quite fun, I don't get it why it was so unpopular.
Because Mail.ru wanted WoT instead of something else, and you can't outWoT WoT proper.
I've see the idea being passed around of smoke and flare rounds, but it seems it was scrapped.
Smoke: potato computers burning at the first some cloud being popped on the map
Flare: counter-light weapon, so no
But I like the idea.
AW on PS4 is DOA, they can't even keep PC AW alive
It had a decent population for a couple weeks but WoT console is just so much better and polished. From what I understand PS4 has more active players than PC because on PC the only thing people can play nowadays is PvE. AW had a lot good ideas just shit population and queue times.
make more gamemodes
This is the number one fuckup on PS4. They've split PvE into 3 difficulties, PvP is split into two gamemodes, and the servers are permalocked so you can't even play with europeans and russian like in WoT. The game had a small playerbase from the jump and they did everything they could to keep it from growing.
K bois, next idea coming up. New set of equipment, starting with add-on armor.
Takes an equipment slot, adds anti-HEAT meshes/spaced armor in fixed spots
Adds track links at fixed spots
I'm fed up with the limited set of useful equipment, and wish the devs added more useful ones to make the choice more interesting. Any other potential equipment to make the choice more meaningful?
That's a pretty good idea, and I've suggested it here before too. It would make the NATO mediums more competitive, but I pity the poor SoB who meets a Type 5 decked out in ERA tiles.
I like fried onion mm it's good
lmao knowing a few French military marches I can say that this is by far the most upbeat/innocent one I've ever heard and I wasn't expecting that
try La Strasbourgeoise or Les Commandos
I think they should restrict such a thing to medium and lights.
spaced armor on Type 5
If there were such a piece of equipment what would you sacrifice for? I think I'd give up optics/vents on most mediums and run Rammer, Vstabs, Applique armor. Spotting would be solely up to lights.
the problem with smokes and flares is that they would require all maps to be redone because they change gameplay a lot... Plus heavy tanks would suffer the most from them, because to facilitate/fight them you need mobility.
teals thinking their opinions have value
They wouldn't really have to change much. They could just get rid of the 560m render limit since tanks could get unspotted themselves. The redone maps do seem more open but I don't like how there is little cover anywhere and they flattened out everything to make russian tanks better.
I was laughing that autists like this exists, but I guess we have one here too.
It feels like WoT has it's meta so ingrained into how the whole game works, that adding literally any new drastic mechanics will simply break it. Unless WG takes time to rework major the game overall, but we can't have that)))
I remember those times, my friend and I would drive stupidly up whichever flank direction when we were still learning the maps, going this way or that way to see which worked better, yoloing single tanks we'd find. fun times
Yuros play like bitches I swear to god.
Fuck whoever came up with these ricochet mechanics
lol every russian tank hass le sloped ass armor
but would you play a class like this?
i'd love to because i like
healslutting, but let's be real, WoT meta isn't built around things like this, and armorless, weaponless support vehicle means it's mostly a passive/stationary healer unlike most kind of popular RPG healers. it would either be useless in fast paced match or make campy matches campier than they already are
That new nomohan map sucks a fat one.
2 remaining team mates
one is capping the enemy base
1 enemy tank remaining
WTPz4 and Grille 15 vs 55% HP Jagdpz E100
jpe100 kills capping wtpz
meanwhile grille sneaks behind jpe100 and shoots
jpz outturns the grille
The Bible really was right, do not place your faith in men
getting outturned by a Jageroo
Something fucked up.
obj spamming heat on me
fuck i got outskilled
I forgot to claim the female crew.
I lost my motivation to play.
why the fuck do you ppl need to use anime mods?
i mean i get it, you like that shit, but why do you have to put it on fucking everything.
Because they like it a lot.
ching chong ning nong nanking no happen
The Tiger 131 is a lot of fun.
They really fucked that up by playing it like pussies. Both of them should have rushed the first time you shot. Good job nonetheless.
DO YOU LIKE
sold them all except ltp
Play a lot every single day, get a US tier 3 tank
get rare tank
what is so hard about that ?
Gameplay maybe? It's been 8 years and game still lacks any.
have anyone who played 1.0 her ever tried playing the low tiers yet? i kinda feel like those new tracer effects will look really neat on machineguns and autocannons fire
they look pretty cool in the pz1c
Here's the tier 7 Tiger 131 in action. It's old news but this is one of my favorite tanks.
my screenshot key is broked
do you like your scorpion shoegum?
if you didn't buy your extra rare 99€ free PzIIJ the previous 15 times if was on sale, now is the time
Why is that thing over 100 dollars? It was literally free on playstation.
Because WoT PC is hugely popular in one region which results in the players of that version never getting nice things.
tl;dr slav logic
Are you baiting or something? You only need 100 tokens for the T3 prem. That's 4 games per day. The real funny thing is the main prizes, some poor slavshitter will probably play 18h a day for it.
see enemy T71 surrounded by 3 friendly tanks in close quarters
decide to go shoot something else
Destroy Hellcat, Churchill, and T1 heavy
duke it out with enemy Tiger for about a minute
all of a sudden hear "POW! POW! POW! POW!" in my sides
the same T71 now has 3 kills and makes me his fourth

NO CAP KILL ALL
Read the article?
couldn't care to
I imagine merch and maybe some graphics card
Didn't they remove the fire chance from tranny pens on the Forward tranny tanks like WW2 german mediums/heavies, or am I high?
you imagined wrong
How much gold should one carry in the E50?
I carry 26 regular, 20 gold, and 2 HE
20/28/0 got me to 3 moe.
Thank you. I'm a long ways away from the top gun because I just unlocked the tank last night and the stock grind looks brutal.
At least you can get the extra long 88 from the Panther 2 these days. The E-50 itself suffered quite a lot from the armor creep over the last year or so but the HD map changes with the recent patch might make up for some of that. No idea, I don't really care about the higher tiers any more since CW and most of the community died on NA.
the grind should be alright now that you carry over the super long 88 from the panther 2
also you shot as much gold with the top gun as your credits allow, there is no other reason to use anything but apcr with it than saving credits
The wiki mentioned that with the recent buffs the super long 88 is the "new top gun". I'm assuming that whoever wrote is just yellow or something. 240 alpha might be okay at tier 8, but it seems like it'd be a problem for trading shots. And I typically don't have reservations about shooting gold so the 105 basically 270 pen in my eyes.
The wiki is run by guys who range from green to blue. That bit was probably written by some teal who fell for the DPM meme. You'll have to run the 88 anyway for quite a bit, if you prefer it to the 105 you can always switch back.
fuck this game looks so damn good
Now if only it had some gameplay.
I kinda wish the shots would stay lit the entire time, seems like they flare like rockets right as you shoot and right as they hit, but not during flight.
*tips fedora and upvotes*
Remember 2014 /v/ when fedora tipping posts were out of control? I'm glad that's over.
Where are the stamps for the dumb mtls?
mission tab, events
I don't see it, I might be retarded.
How do I convince my green friend to use Vstabs over GLD? He doesn't understand hidden stats no matter how much I tell him. He also doesn't realize that sitting still and aiming faster is less beneficial than being able to snap shot on the move. Is there anything I can do or this just a consequence of befriending greens?
Tell this retard to look up any tank at vbaddict and check for the equipment most people use.
First time i've recieved a compliment in a while
It isn't there desu.
I try to get him to look this stuff up but he either refuses or doesn't believe it. He's the type of player who claims his stats are low because he's a team player and not just because he often does zero damage in games. I really need my guys to improve but they won't acknowledge that WoT is a numbers game first and foremost.
try turning it off and on or something
try showing him a side by side comparison, and the graph that shows the chance for a shell to go within the inner and outer part of the aim circle. i'll try to find it for you if you don't know what I'm talking about
Ditch the retard. If he doesn't believe the guy who plays this game longer than him and also refuses to look it up himself then I don't know what else to say.
he's a dumbass. literacy isn't bound to video games. life should have taught him how to understand and if he can't figure out a tank game for russian children, he is lost for good
Thank you, I do know what you're talking but I wouldn't know where to find it. It was already difficult enough getting them to pick decent tanks for tournaments, if I were to see the loadouts they were using my head would probably explode.
one guy wanted to take a T34 to a 7v7 tourney
He actually has more battles than me. He just never got gud. I'm at 18k, my friend is at like 22k and I can't just ditch him because everyone else would leave with him.
Best equipment for Strv 74 is vents, optics, and rammer, right?
sure. the no vstab classic
It's got such shit armor though, isn't it better to just sit back and snipe?
it has an amazing mantlet and turret forehead that can stop E100 or T30 rounds at 200m if you're hull down, but the hull is utter trash
i don't know if the strv gets a vstab. i usually get a vstab on every tank even if it has good handling already. if i could get vstabs on TDs, i would even though the rotation only applies to the very acute angles the gun traverse. decreased bloom controls your tank life.
also if you set your role before the situation arises, you'll miss out on opportunity, but i'm sure you break your own rules
strv74 is the t6 one right? this is not the centurion thing
haven't played for years
the biggest update since ever is out
literally nobody is online
no Veeky Forums channel
nobody from my friendlist is online
Guess I'll just watch the GuP ova then
I checked and you are correct, it doesn't get a vstab. This guy must be talking about something else.
what if you watched a good anime instead
I already saw Naruto and Hero Academia
dying game is dying
it's not dying, it's dead
The game is not dying, it's alive but not well.
The game will continue to live because of autists that are obsessed with it will keep it afloat as long as they possibly can.
any1 who wants to play in the tourney on sunday?
it's a 2v2 t6
i pick both thanks to yuru yuri
can i bring my 1200 wn8 jumbo
got anything like a type 64 or a cromwell?
I think the only other t6 I have is t-34-85m, can't remember because I last played 2 months ago
rly no point in participating in these tourneys if you don't play with the most op tanks of the tier senpai
i have a type 64. 3k recent, 2k overall, 3.7k tank. i quit like 3 months ago because game is shit but i'll reinstall for tourney if you want.
this wasn't a serious question in the first place (jumbo lol)
it's this tourney
will you be able to play at that time?
na tourneys when
sorry i live in the free world. i have to attend a mass shooting at walmart at that time.
well if anyone's got a type 64/cromwell and isn't red I guess reply to this post
So does this mean that shell distribution is more or less equal now instead of using Gauss distribution?
Loading time issues? Use the high preset
inb4 50 potato user replies
should I buy AMX 40 for shit and giggle?
some times it's like a minute long load (all settings maxed)
Sure. It's cheap
That's why I said high preset, check the WoT forums too, it fixed everything for me, back to quick load with an hdd
bottom tier 9 matches in a row lads haha
MM is fixed guise
Why not? It's not really fun though aside from troll amour.
I'm unirocally having fun with the jageroo. It's a more precise type 5 and the HE is the type 5 premium HE. And if you find that retarded OP thing called 268 v4 just press 2 and autopen him with 420 pen.
It's fun to pwned sidescrapping russian heavys that don't expect the HE.
WoT wins since 99% of players won't lower graphics to min for easier spotting. :)
both are fucking turboshit gameplay wise
which looks better, the dying game or the literally dead game?
needs some cartoon bullshit for tweens like overwatch or fortnight
that fucking T-34 model in WoT
my fucking sides, every time
What's wrong with it?
They should do one with AW.
Look up some historical photos of T-34 mod 41.
I think warthunder is shit
i'm surprised nobody's made a modern version of these. i know they have stability issues but lots of people ride normal motorcycles without safety gear so it's not like the audience cares.
They'd have to use M60, Walker Bulldog, T-54, IS-7, Chieftain or Leopard 1
What is the best tank class?
fast heavies with no arty. low profile meds otherwise.
i prefer lights but they're objectively not great.
Doesn't really matter that much as long as you have a turret that bounces the gold ammo of 90% of the tanks you'll fight. With that setup you can make every class work.
If I have the stock (with top engine) T69 and 7 days of premium how much will I want to kill myself if i grind 250k for the on track before next friday? I would have to do at least 35k a day with 100% boosters
t54 has ranked league 2 badge and sees my league 1 camo
ignores enemies and starts pushing and blocking me from the first minute
makes the mistake of going infront of my gun
With prem time and xp boost, you should still be able to get 35k in less than 4 hours if you play well and use skill rounds. The tank is not a bad grind, or at least it wasn't when I did it 3 or 4 years ago.
Good job user. Fuck that guy.
accident))) so sorry)))
ywn conquer gensokyo in your tank
ywn take alice as war spoils
Haven't played for about 6 months, has some big update happened?
a class entirely dedicated to helping the most retarded people on Earth do the things you should be doing on your own (because goodness knows it's the only way they'll get done)
They brought the graphics up to a 2014 level while ignoring glaring flaws in map design and gameplay.
is there a difference between 2014 and 2018 graphics? it seemed to plateau around 2010
anti-HEAT meshes/spaced armor in fixed spots
That thing you hear is the scream of a thousand purples becoming yellow overnight.
Autoloaders still not nerfed
You know you play a good game when the front of your AT-2 is blown to ded by a fucking autocannon
Game constantly crashing since the update
Always in the middle of a match
Because it's not a disconnection tank keeps moving in whatever direction it was going
These fucking incompetent Slavs.
U fukked his ass
stop playing bad tanks. i have no fucking idea why people think it's unethical or something to not play bad tanks.
stop playing bad tanks
Play bad tanks to grind to good tanks"
playing broken and OP shit and enjoying it
Nah you are right they brought it up to about what BF3 looked like and that came out in 2011
I haven't had any crashes and the last time my graphics card got a driver update was in Feb 2016
this game has been out for 8 years. if you don't have the wherewithal and ability to freexp terrible low tier tanks by now you're an idiot. if you've started playing in the last 2 years you're an even bigger idiot because you were probably warned not to and did it anyway.
Was tried, community screeched, was dropped. Looks like they'd rather stare at the waiting queue for five minutes several times than play games with tanks they don't like seeing.
being this much of a butthurt baby when his precious game is criticized
If the games been out for 8 years, you would think they could balance their game
BF3 still looks amazing though. And I played it onnPS3, hell if DICE remade that game for new consoles I'd drop tanks in a heartbeat.
Nigga, it's been 8 years and bugs that existed since the Alpha still exist now. They're too busy with graphics hoping the idiot playerbase will be too dazzled to realize the better looking maps are still a nightmare to navigate and I haven't even mentioned the retarded mechanics and premium bullshittery.
Anyone who's been playing for 8 years knows they can't.
implying the AT2 leads to anything good
is the defender overated, it's great when I'm top tier but when I'm bottom tier good people just shoot my lower plate, even when it's angled its only like 240mm
it follows a trend of making prem tanks that are miserable to play against for lower tiers and also miserable to play as.
is it miserable to play as ? it has pretty good pen and alpha, I just pop out and blast some dude for 4-500 dmg and then wait and do it again
not really, the defender is much better than the is6. it's just the same concept where you're impotent above your own tier and invincible below it.
Even when my lower plate is angled it's only 240mm!
I mean, it's not like the fucking thing has a comparable LFP to the IS-7, and a better UFP, and a godly turret as well.
play first game since the patch
strange things on the ground that block vision but apparently can be shot through
Now I have to remove that shit.
Can I get some feedback/advice about the lines i'm grinding rn
I'm doing american mediums on pershing (hate this piece of shit it's slow, has no armor no pen (190) and no alpha)
amx 50 100 (I like it but it sucks how i'm always bottom tier and can't just unload on people without bouncing all the time)
Japanese Medium line on the chi to (I like the tank, good pen but not looking forward to the chiri)
jagdpanzer IV going for ferdinand line
turn off grass and lower foliage
* I'm also gridning the american heavy line, my favorite tanks are the sherman jumbo and defender
I'm doing american mediums on pershing (hate this piece of shit it's slow, has no armor no pen (190) and no alpha)
the EZ8 should have taught you to use ridgelines while the T20 should have taught you to take calculated shots with the slower reload
It has 190 pen and I'm always bottom tier, literally the only good thing about it is the gun depression and people just shoot through my mantlet. When I do pen it does 190 damage and it's slow as fuck for a medium without getting any armor out of it
you should have done the russian heavy line or chinese heavy line if you want a medium with armor and alpha
I did the russian heavy line for a bit, but the kv85 had zero armor and iirc shit gun depression
As has been said, use ridges with the Persh. Its got good depression and turret armor. The Chinese lights are a ton of fun, I've even kept the 131 and 132 because I enjoyed them. They're not really lights, more like meds without armor. Kemp bush and then pick off people later in the game.
Would you enjoy a WW2-style tank game if it had fictional tanks with similar aesthetic?
I would say no, but i would probably look at it for the mechanics
Assume they're miles better than WoT/WT. Much larger maps, too.
I'd love a tank game that actually has engagement ranges in kms as well as 100s of metres.
sounds fun, but I don't know why there wouldn't be real tanks in this hypothetical game
outside of avoiding sekrit documents
To allow for greater flexibility in tank design and loadout without triggering the hordes of autist historians and tank fetishists, of course.
without triggering the hordes of autist historians and tank fetishists
i can assure you these people won't leave even if you're talking about fictional tanks
Yes, the shot will have an equal chance to go anywhere in the circle now as opposed to having like a 60% chance to go center half, 40% chance to go outer half
And they'll still get triggered. See the Nameless/Edelwiss disaster.
It wasn't anything of the sort.
The tanks were always meant for the Japanese audience, everyone knows SEGA doesn't give a rat's ass about non-Japanese fans.
The fact that they are available for Blitz and Console is because the Japanese happens to play using the same version of the game whilst PC has different versions according to region.
Why is that anyway? Why not just have a worldwide client for WoT PC and let players choose regional servers?
But that's already the state of the game
has anyone else been having massive issues with packet loss since 1.0? I get one or two massive lag spikes per game that just make the game even more frustrating to play than it already is
Why not just have a worldwide client for WoT PC and let players choose regional servers?
Because russians are horribly toxic players. On console EU servers every game has 3 to 4 russian dudes literally telling "cyka blyat" and audibly chainsmoking. The VC tanks were also hugely popular on NA/EU regions on console because there are fuckton weebs who play this game. I think WG intended to sell them on all regions but the abrupt negative feedback caused them to scrap any plans.
any1 who has a type 64 or a cromwell and isn't red, and wants to play in this sunday's tourney (2v2 t6)?
I'm yuro btw
Don't you have friends?
WoT PC and let players choose regional servers
ain't nobody wants to play with goblins, hues, vatniks and asian bug""""""men""""""""
we already have to deal with entire nation of poland and its bad as it is without your genetic filth
I think WG intended to sell them on all regions
I highly doubt that.
Not saying it's impossible, but the files for the tanks don't exist in any other server, not even China and they sell everything there.
I think WG made a deal with SEGA and the deal was limited to Japanese audiences, since the Asia server is where the Japanese audiences are, the entire server gets the ability to buy them as well.
WG did the same deal for Blitz and Console, the big difference is that Blitz and Console only has one client for all regions, so everyone gets the ability to buy them.
So if Asia inevitably dies off, wherever WG moves the Japanese audiences to will get the ability to buy the VC tanks.
my lower plate is only immune to 80% of tier 8 gold rounds and a near 50/50 for most tier 9s, whatever shall I do?!?!
and let players choose regional servers
opening the hell gates that are 8 or 9 russian servers
inb4 some asshurt HIV positive totally-not-cyka starts claiming that russian players are actually good if not the best in WoT
So if Asia inevitably dies off, wherever WG moves the Japanese audiences to will get the ability to buy the VC tanks.
I honestly don't know if they'll sell them again. On console they were in the PS store for about 6 months before their deal or whatever ran out and they haven't been available since December. I think that if PC players had been more accepting instead of unleashing 8 years of pent up autism, WG could have easily made a deal to sell them. It's just so unfortunate that fans of the series weren't able to get the Edelweiss and Nameless because of a bunch of purists who probably don't even play more than 5 battles a week.
Sales on tanks depends on demand, WG will even sell the Defender again if players show large interest in buying them that it outweighs the """""""outcry""""""".
The timing for the tanks was just horrible too. Everyone was fed up with OP premiums at that time. iirc the Defender caused quite a stir when it launched. Then in the very next month or two they released the Chrysler GF and the SirFoch controversy happened. Finally after all that they released the VC tanks on Asia/console. I think if they released them now the controversy might be a little less severe since everyone is used to getting fucked by premiums and 3-5-7 by now.
this is your battle buddy, say something nice about him
Hungarian tanks confirmed?
But Russians are the main audience of this game, surely they're very capable players.
3/5/7 did more to hurt this game's popularity and WG's image than the SkorpG or the Defender possibly could. OP tanks have existed before and they will continue to exist, but fucking the MM so hard and being adamant it's "for the health of the game)))" is just abhorrent business practices
What the heck is Harold doing there
Posing with a couple of employees who got terminated for violating their NDAs. He's probably part of an April Fool's Day publicity stunt.

Not with someone who has bas taste and is arrogant like you.
GW Panther is good, Ferdi is good against higher tiers.
I wouldn't grind US lights after tier 5, xcept T20
The Deathstar and Tortoise look like they could be alright. It wasn't a priority grind so the CGC had been in my garage for like 7 or 8 months.
Are relatively low-tier tanks (III to VI) still fun?
is loaded manually
is of historical accuracy ))))))))))
only if they're beyond broken
whomst are you quoting
Any suggestions for fun tanks in that tier bracket?
I enjoyed playing this game a while ago, but I don't want to take it too seriously.
luchs is pretty fun for me
fcm 36 pak 40 (520 view range with binos and good crew)
Type T-34/T-34 (absolutely broken if you use the 57mm with crew and equipment)
I'm also still looking for 1 person to tourney with me, if anyone's interested
most MTs are fun to play, cromie and t-34 85 are popular for a reason, strv74 is also stupidly OP as long as you can avoid getting shot. oh, and also machinegun LTs like pz1c, luchs and leo
I fucking hate any mission with win condition.
t. 48% WR
I'm a green shitter and have a 4 skilled crew in both of those tanks. I'd play with you if you're a cool dude that can handle some banter and you're not a fag. I promise to load full gold as well.
pls tell me ur yuro
It's probably the better part of the game if you hate the current MM. Get yourself the known stat padder tanks and you can carry entire games even if you're yellow. Just having 6th sense and understanding how view/ spotting works will enable you to curb stomp everyone but the other filthy stat padders.
The VK 20.01 D is my comfy tank of choice.
Why not the Panzer III? It's pretty much the same tank but better in every way.
the 2001d is trash
you still there
You guys remember when they introduced that line of tanks on the NA server? And they had prizes for those that got the highest experience in a battle in each of the tanks? I was #1 on the NA with the 20.01d. I ain't trolling. She's my baby.
Keep in mind that I do love the PzIII as well, but it's just not as aesthetic, you know?
I tend to hang back in the 20.01d, while in the PzIII I am a lot more aggressive.
poke and shoot
get this bc I was apparently being camperino
poke a corner where arty pre-aims
Why do they make tier IX grinds so bad?
To the gulag
That seems like a hoax. It seems extremely retarded to fire someone for taking and sharing CONSENSUAL pictures. Like what did they do wrong? Also why does WG have a company "fitness trainer"? Is this the bullshit my premium tanks pay for?
WAITING FOR SUBS
what are the most cancerous premium tanks for each tier? do i get it right? at least the common ones anyway
tier 3 was that russian light with the 300mm sloped front that could only be penned by its own gold rounds. those things were hilarious, you could drive right into the enemy and take no damage consistently. then they gave them to everyone.

Those tanks are only cancerous if you don't have one.
FCM 36 Pak 40, Pz.Kpfw. S35 749 (f), T-127 (Looking at you, CHAI apcr triple platooners)
Pz.Kpfw. B2 740 (f) can really fuck you over depending on your tank, T-28E F-30 will devour your health and ignore your armor
can someone explain to me why medium tier light tanks have such crap dpm, they lose from mediums one tier lower than them in a one on one fight. Not to mention the view range that is worse.
the b2 hasn't been good since release when you actually couldn't pen it
wait maybe that was the pz s35
Spall liner on E50 for ramming memes? Or Vents/vstabs/rammer?
I thought spotting was a meme?
are you green?
is it me or is prok even worse than before
blue actually, purple recent. In a lot of videos I see unicunts forgoing optics in favor of vents and saying "the meta favors dpm and shuns scouting". In the E50 i just see myself being more close range.
i just see myself being more close range
tfw in the top 251 on the intel leaderboard
it probably won't last but w/e
Why do they make tier IX grinds so bad?
So you bypass them with gold. This game is basically only designed to be F2P up until around tier 6.
"the meta favors dpm and shuns scouting"
The meta favours dpm and shuns scouting for cunt unicums that just want to farm damage whilst some poor arsehole LT does all the scary work
