    Derpsgiving 2018 (WoT Edition)

    You are a strange, strange man. That thing's shots were like 3 pointers, it's a major miracle if you hit anything moving...

    Derpsgiving 2018 (WoT Edition)

    There's the swedish td with only derp too, though good luck with that...
  3. That is a bit strange. The only thing I can think of is somehow all your damage was done to targets spotted by a teammate, even the ones <300m. And that S Conqueror just happened to spot both his targets himself. But even then, with sharing half your XP to the spotter you would have done 1600 worth of direct damage XP so... 🙄
  4. What do you think about the tank? I'm on stage 7 now, after watching the QB review I am really not sold on it. If I recall he said it's basically like a Caernarvon, with a little bit of spaced armor on the turret? That low alpha really really turns me off, something about low rolling for <200 damage at tier 8 is.... With the current tier 8 MM I'm not sure how much I would play it. Free is fine, even 20-30 bucks at this point feels like not much value if it's just going to sit in my garage.
  5. base accuracy 0.35 means it's not a sniper? lol there's many tanks with better than that with shots that fly all over (look at grille 15), and yet gigantic derp guns hit fully aimed shot 8/10 times.
  6. Herp derp I just realised that >.< You can tell I obviously haven't progressed anywhere on the Brit med/heavy line lol
  7. What are everyone's thoughts on the caernarvon action X? I'm not a medium tank fan, but on paper those stats look fairly decent. I like the turret armor + 10 degrees gun depression, pen is ok and alpha is normal I guess (would prefer higher but it's a med) Only downside to me is the fact that it's tier 8, I'm not sure how much I would play it in never-ending tier 10 matches just to get credits since I'm not even intending to play Brit mediums.
  8. Really? I was pretty impressed with it in that QB review, seemed on paper to be a better E100. I mean, everything can pen an E100's lower plate too unless it's hull down and looking away from you :) But I wasn't going to grind it anyway since all the lower tiers are utter trash...
  9. I just started on them and haven't looked through all the requirements, but I have to say I'm liking this new format. I prefer to have gradual progress in the missions, rather than the first set where it depended heavily on RNG to get the right map/set of teams (I'm still halfway through the t-55A set...). Also it seems that it's not tied as strongly to vehicle classes (although it sounds like there are arty missions from what you guys have said?) which I prefer because I don't often play light tanks and arty. I'm ok with slowly racking up spotting damage in meds/heavies as opposed to needing that one Prok/Murovanka game in a light tank. So even if it might take longer, I prefer it to sitting on a mission for like 6 months until you get that "stars-align" game.

    Map Discussion 1.0 Redux: Karelia

    I personally think north spawn has an advantage in a certain sniper spot, not sure if it's the one you're thinking of. I generally don't see North being really important, seems rare that it results in winning unless the other team doesn't control the hill i.e. you have to win BOTH the north and also at least be contesting the hill. However I have a soft spot for Karelia because I've had 2 monster 8k damage games with my Grille 15, mostly just sitting in the aforementioned sniper spot :P

    Ranked, where u at?

    I just bought the O-Ni yesterday on a whim since there were those discounts, I'm enjoying it so far lol it's just a tier 7 kv-2/o-i, feels satisfying whapping people for 500 damage in the turret with no aiming... How was the O-Ho grind, can I just keep derping all the way to tier X?

    New QB Code

    what are these codes for anyway? At work so I'm never going to be able to redeem them...

    E25 - Limited 68 Hour Sale!

    Yeah, I got mine when they gave it out free a few years ago. Was it just for logging in X number of times or something? Especially love that description... driving along and suddenly 1 shot by an E25. Guess that's what you get for playing a tank with 120 hp at tier 7...

    Fixes to Preferential Matchmaking

    Most of these buffs look totally insignificant to me. I don't think adding 5-15 pen and 0.3s reload is going to have any difference at all when you're facing Defenders and 50-TPs, which is the real problem. It won't make any of the pref MM 8s more competitive at tier 8 (well IS-6 aim time is significantly buffed at least). I agree with gpc, maybe I'm old-school but I also think that's the price to pay for pref MM. I'm fine with them being weaker than tech tree 8s, the problem is that their recent money-grab tier 8s are OP enough to rival tier 10s in some positions.
  16. RIP my only superheavy E100, powercrept into oblivion...

    Premium Shop Coupons!

    Just got a 20% after a game with a Pascucci's, the messaging said get an "epic" coupon for an epic medal, though I wouldn't really consider 20% epic... So I guess it's tied to performance in some way.

    Tournaments return

    The joy of fighting 3 268 v4s over and over again!
  20. I'm kinda slow grinding a couple of lines and would like some opinions on whether they are even worth continuing on, mainly due to free xp/crew considerations. Guess I'm wondering which of the other vehicles in the lines are keepers/fun to play, I don't want to grind just for another tier 10 which only gets occasional play. 1) US mediums, currently at T20 with Pershing almost unlocked Have no impressions of Pershing, to me fighting them is just like a fighting an uptiered Sherman, shoot them wherever except maybe the mantlet directly. How is the grind through the 8 and 9? I note that the Pershing's initial guns are truly horrific with 160 pen, but I guess I could technically pop xp boosters and run full apcr until I get the top gun. Heard that the tier 10 Patton is pretty good and plays kinda like a heavy medium, which I like since I'm terrible at mediums. I do kinda like the t20 though. 2) Swedish heavies, currently at Emil I with Emil II almost unlocked Definitely like the turret and hull-down, but the gun handling is just terrible. Even firing premium doesn't really solve anything, intra-clip is too slow to be a real auto-loader. Does the Emil II's gun handling improve much? Don't see myself playing the Kranvagn much, seems to be pretty much out of favor. 3) Swedish TDs, currently at tier 6 and hating it Mainly just wanted to get to udes and play around with siege mode, but really not enjoying this much. Is the tier 7 more of the same? Seems really limited to open maps with bushes and un-fun otherwise. 4) Italian meds, currently at tier 6 Seen a lot of people saying that the mid tiers are decidedly meh, how bad is it and how is the tier 8/9/10? I'm finding them kind of bland but ok, similar to the Swedish Leo which I expected to hate but ended up finding it alright. Are they free xp sinks and unplayable when stock?

    New frontline mode

    Thanks! What have I been doing in random battles.... I look forward to shooting Lorraines, Skorpions, CDCs, Somuas, FCMs with my 160 pen instead of spamming APCR against 10s.

    New frontline mode

    This is probably a stupid question... but can you actually grind normal xp in frontline? If so this would be great to grind my Pershing in...
  23. I second the K5 position, found out about this recently and I find it a much better play for TDs than camping 1 line shooting morons. Good shots on lights poking on the lighthouse, helps support the east side, shots on tanks poking the middle, plus comes with bush and rock.... mmmm. The corresponding A5 doesn't seem as good (although still better than 1 line...) because of the shape of the terrain, there's that big rock in the middle which blocks north but not south.
  24. I ended up free xping the turret and the top gun. Agree about the troll bounciness, it can bounce some strange stuff. However I seem to notice that the Italians seem to eat track+hp damage very easily, even when relatively unangled. I was trying to track one frontally after bouncing on it a couple of times, was surprised that it just went right through the track and damaged as well. But the problem with the top gun is the troll accuracy is back, even with the same listed dispersion number....

    Opinions on a few grind tanks?

    Helpful feedback guys, thanks. I went ahead and bought the Pershing, moved the t20 crew up into it. First couple of games went pretty alright, although I'm not sure if it'll be a keeper. If the tier 9 is as good as indicated I might have to start training another crew in preparation for the 10. 2nd priority will be Swedish TDs, although I'm still not sure what I'm supposed to do in something like Himmelsdorf with no turret, no armor, and lowish alpha... Will drop the Swedish heavies if the 9 and 10 is just more of the same. Just got Mr Meatball last night for Italians, so might slowly grind up to the tier 8 and see how it goes from there. If tier 9 and 10 is pretty much same playstyle just slightly better, might also stop at 8. Incidentally xtc4 sorry for getting you artied to death on Murovanka last night, I wanted to shoot you to put you out of your misery but my p43 bis didn't have the gun depression so just had to sit there spotting and watch you get rained on >.<
