  3. Thanks to all for a fun campaign. We ran every night of the campaign. 51 members participated, 33 played 5 or more and 7 played 20 or more. We had 6 people call including first time calls (as far as I know) by Bombay and Sib, who both did great. Sib went 2 for 3, so pretty sure that makes him the DHO-X career calling win leader. We did seem to improve throughout with notable improvements in focus fire, pushing and individual communication. We had a nice combination of some new strats (well, for this iteration of DHO-X that is) on new maps, and working same/similar strats on maps that we have played a fair amount somewhat recently. A couple of highlights off the top of my head: - A down to the wire match against TEACH (a 1400+ ELO clan) - 7 arty comp win on El Halluf - Breaking the recent Steppes curse (more than once) - We still lost more than we won, but our CW elo inched up slightly and we certainly won more than in the last CW season. I think we have found our current ELO and can look to build from here. Areas for improvement: - our pushes can still be more tight and uniform - Calling was better, but still need improvement on mid-game recognition/flex and appropriate patience/aggressiveness. Some of the strats could be better... callers may consider trying to run the occasional advance as a legionnaire with another clan to pick up some ideas (even if it is what not to do). I think our strats on Prok, Steppes and Westfield are mostly legit, the rest are a bit more work in progress. - We had good participation, but would like to see more. If we are going to significantly progress in CW, it would be great if we could get to being able to occasionally run 2 battles at once. - individual execution. If we want to continue to improve, we need more people to play their tier tens more. Micro positioning is super important, and many more nuanced strats put greater stress on individual execution. If you are unfamiliar with your tank... - individual communication. We have some nice chatter and ideas happening team wide. Next step is to clean that up a bit by being specific and having a touch more of a filter. “arty in A0” and “277 in G6 taking fire from multiple in C8” and using F7 instead of saying “I’m spotted” are great examples of clean communication. “I’m getting wrecked” and “they are pushing” are examples of being too general or adding something the caller already knows. It’s also challenging if multiple people are talking at once... while the caller is also trying to talk. All of the above didn’t happen too often, but they are relatively easy things to clean up. Great job all. Will look to keep the org play mojo going a bit for rest of the summer by running tier X advances at least 2x per week. Ontarget is tee’d up to call this Thursday. Hope to see you there.

  5. The Chinese Jagtiger: http://wotreplays.eu/site/4960026#steppes-blackroan-wz-111g_ft This TD has been much more enjoyable than I thought it would be. I still don't have the top gun (big 290 pen/750 alpha). It plays very much like a tougher, but less accurate Jagtiger. So if you like the Jagtiger, this is something you might enjoy. The entire line from VI on up was not very painful to grind. The gun I am using is basically a better version of what is on the WZ-111 5A (better pen and alpha same caliber).
  6. Italian by a mile. The tier VIII is not bad and is solid for FL. The Standard B is awesome. Mobile, good gun, and one sneaky bastard. Great for creeping up a flank and stabbing in the sides and back. The tier X while not used in CW is a great tank.
  7. I'd say you have the basics. From a gameplay perspective, really only missing a TVP or Progetto, so go for whichever of those floats your boat. At tier IX, I could see keeping the E50, Patton, 30prot, Standard B, and Skoda T50.
  8. +1 on Maida’s recs. Can’t go wrong with any of those. Having said that, while lstill great tanks, I feel like the czechs have been a little power creeped. There’s also the VTU to get through and that’s not fun. If I had to pick one, i’d Probably slightly favor the patton. The 48 is good fun and the 46 may be the best tier 9 med... that’s an argument, but don’t think anyone wouldn’t say it’s not one of the best.
  9. Progetto, TVP, or Patton 48. All great X's. All amazing IX's.
  10. At Tier X I currently have the Patton, E50M, Bat-Chat, 140, and 430U for medium tanks. My best results have been in the 430U (duh) and the Bat-Chat. Besides those above, what is your favorite Tier X medium? I'd also like to know which Tier 9 is a keeper in your opinion. I do like auto-loaders/re-loaders, but that isn't the only factor in my decision making.

  14. Living situation sounds like a challenge, but seems like you're up for it. Glad you found us, and welcome.
  15. Thanks for the update and the work you put in juggernaut!
  16. Thanks! Hello all, found the Discord 1st via the PAX Community affiliation, having been attending PAX the past couple years, about half as an Enforcer on staff. I'll be 34 in a week, I live in MD and have a 3 1/2 yr. old daughter. Been married for 5 years as of today actually, my wife is a teacher and I am a consultant for a contracting company, my current project has me in web development (.NET). My "dad-life stress" mostly center around the extra challenge of living with in-laws; about 6 months after we were married we found out my father in-law had lung cancer and 6 months after that he was gone. We moved in with her mom (and grandmom in the basement in-law suite) shortly after to help them keep the house and are slowing taking it over, too slow in my opinion but we're working on it. My wife is great, there's a lot of pressure on her to juggle all of this being in the middle of everything and she handles it well. If you're doing the math, yes, I live with 4 generations of my wife's family's women. Pray for me...kidding 🙂 As for gaming, I mostly play Final Fantasy XI, yea the 20 year old one, my brother, my cousin and I play together and have basically stuck together on there. If you happen to play and you're on Asura server look up our group, Seiten, or send me a message. I also play lots of Total War games...I'm not a big fan of PvP I just generally find I'm not very good at it, don't care enough, and it's not as fun. I like laid back collaborative games with strategy. My current offline project is building a swing set for my daughter, we got a used one from my neighbor and the plan was to restore it but it had so much decay I realized I was going to have to replace something every 6 months so my Dad and I are rebuilding it from scratch, we're almost done. After that I aim to fix up the backyard for hosting. I'm also into homebrewing beer with my brother and my dad, whole grain, we're not very good but it's fun and interesting. Best we've made so far is a dark brown that was very drinkable, pretty hoppy. We haven't gotten a good IPA down yet which is an annoyance bc it's our favorite style overall. Anyway that's me, glad to be here. Best way to contact me is via the Discord, I always have it up, feel free to send me a private message on there. I just don't keep track of forums very well. See you around!

  19. A couple of clarifying points: - 6,154 participating players refers to the number of players currently in the Alley of Fame and therefore the number of players eligible for rewards including ability to bid bonds for reward tanks. Need 5 battles to be included in the Alley of Fame. - I don’t recommend investing much of your personal fame in personal fame bonuses. I haven’t done all of the math, but a quick glance indicates that you’d be rolling the dice on us winning more often for the rest of the campaign than we have 😉 Investing the clan fame points to get 35% boost to future clan fame earnings is a pretty decent boost already. Recall that personal fame earned in a battle is equal to clan fame earned in a battle (plus personal fame bonuses). “Investing” means spending in this context... and therefore lowers your rank...
  20. Just invested our clan fame points to get us a 35% boost to fame per game. This likely means that the clan finishes lower ranked (and thus a lower clan multiplier on bonds), but am trading that off to give more people a chance to get bonds period as well as give more people a chance to get enough fame for something like a female crew member. I have spent a fair amount of time figuring this all out... so I think I understand it all now. Fire away with any questions about the below
  21. Hey, do me a favor and go to "general" and "introduce yourself here" and write a short note... part of our protocol. Thank you!

  27. Tips for Firewall Zero Hour: Operation Nightfall, Part Seven Here we go with the week 6 operations for Operation: Nightfall, season 1. Let’s jump in. Free Operation – Week 6 1.) Eliminate 4 players with a headshot using the holo sight attachment – must be done in the public contracts. The holo sight attachment is the primary sight 2 attachment. Unlocked at level 16. Just remember to equip this sight attachment and play some public contracts. 2.) Eliminate 2 players by blind-firing – must be done in the public contracts. This task is not very sensitive because I was not even purposely doing blind fires and I got credited for this. Blind fire should be when you hold your weapon out, away from you and fire down a hall, out a door or out of a window. 3.) Get 8 mutli-eliminations by killing more than one player at a time using any SMG – must be done in public contracts. I find most of my multi-eliminations is when you get kills without reloading. Helps when you happen around the corner and find two people. Down them both and then toss a grenade in there quick. It’s tough to get but as long as you have an SMG equipped, you will eventually get this. Much easier on smaller maps too, like Shoothouse. 4.) Eliminate 4 players with a headshot, using any SMG – must be done in public contracts. Just have to get headshots with SMG, and you should be aiming for a headshot anyway. 5.) Eliminate 16 players as Meiko (Contractor) – must be done in public contracts. Remember to use Meiko. Meiko has the Ninja perk which makes her quiet while sprinting, not showing up on enemy radar. For completing the Free Operation for week 6, you will unlock the Raptor SMG. Premium Operation – Week 6 1.) Eliminate 8 players using C4 – must be done in public contracts. Difficult to get. Definitely will help if you purchased the Node contractor who has the Afterlife skill allowing him to detonate C4 after death. Easiest on defense, and if you have the door blocker. You have to time it correctly and remember you have to hold that L1 button for a few seconds to detonate your C4. You must eliminate them, this will not count if you place C4 by a downed opponent. 2.) Execute 4 downed players using explosives - must be done in public contracts. Down enemies and then just throw a grenade. You just have to kill enemies that are downed. You can use C4 or any grenades. 3.) Get 4 multi-eliminations by eliminating more than one player at a time with explosions – must be done in public contracts. You can use any grenade or C4 or grenade launcher. Impact grenades are the weakest grenades, so best to try your luck with regular frag grenades or sticky. Remember that the contractor Red can get one extra frag grenade or you can equip the Bang Bang skill on your favorite contractor. 4.) Eliminate 4 players using frag grenades – must be done in public contracts. You could easily work on this while attempting the third task using frag grenades. 5.) Eliminate 4 players using impact grenades – must be done in public contracts. Impact grenades are the weakest grenades, so it is easier if you get a few bullets into your target first and then hit them with an impact grenade. Unless you hit someone right on, you will not kill an enemy with an impact grenade if they are at 100% health and it just hits near them. For completing the Premium Operation for week 6 and having the Ops Pass purchased, you will unlock the Falling Star trinket across all contractors and all guns. Bonus Operation – Week 6 Coming soon - I haven't unlocked this operation yet.
