  3. It certainly comes down to whether you think you have more of an advantage keeping enemies lit longer vs staying hidden longer. The LNE adds 5%, correct? The camo directive adds 10%... I think? The main advantage to LNE is that it's a counter (in some capacity) to CVS. Depending on proximity and camo in a bush, it won't always be enough. It also allows you a few more meters of leeway of getting closer to enemies without being spotted. 400m view range means that you get about an extra 20m buffer. Personally, based on tank type, nation and most likely loadout, I try to kite myself in the edge of enemy view ranges where I think I'm safe (even in the open while not firing) to keep them lit and not get spotted in return. The main advantage for IRS and the perk/directive is that once an enemy is spotted, they stay lit longer. This has a few additional benefits. They're spotted longer allowing more shots against them, especially on a map like Prok. They likely won't know they're still lit and presume shots against them will be done in 10s. This means they may pull back out of cover before they go dark and believe they are no longer lit, when in reality, they are perma-lit. They may move behind solid cover and pull back out thinking they are no longer lit to discover they are still lit and are greeted with some nice shells flying their way. And, they may pull behind cover, wait a few seconds until they think they have gone dark, and then change directions not knowing that their moves are still being watched. Obviously, there are catches to the loadouts. In a small city map, without bushes, the extra LNE & IRS would be less effective. But I feel like the IRS would still serve a little better than the LNE, but only just slightly. But if you do choose to use IRS, it's really only worth it if you are using the perk/directive combo. Otherwise, I feel the LNE certainly is the better option. Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk
  4. Nice match! The key thing to remember about really getting the bonus to the spotting time with IRS is having the perk and/or the directive that stack to boost the spotting time even further. The catch with those though is that it only works providing you have your aim circle within 10 degrees of the tank that you are spotting. But, if you can keep your gun moving from target to target that you are actively spotting, you can keep enemies lit for +15s, which is awesome. Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk
  5. First Ace in the T100-LT! CVS + IRS + Optics with Designated Target Perk + Focus on Target Directive (combined spotting time of 15.5s). +17k spotting! Replay posted below. http://wotreplays.eu/site/5535139#prokhorovka-sgrant7-t-100_lt

  7. Certainly didn't finish any in 15, but I had multiple General streaks that reached 6 in a row. A few Majors, a couple Captains and one Lt slowed the grind down a little. Don't know if it ever took more than 20 battles to reach the end of a stage though. I would wager my path was similar to yours@gpc_4 . Maybe a battle or two more. That Lt really sucked. That required an extra battle right there. I grabbed the Char as well. Seems fun, but really haven't played it much yet. I finished up the Steel Hunter mode pretty fast last time. I told myself that I was only going to grind the FL and skip SH mode as I figured I don't need the 777. Ultimately my SH mode grind will depend on how grindy the make it this year. I felt like the grind wasn't too bad last year. But, if WG made changes to the grind like they did for FL, I might fly through it. We'll see what happens soon I guess.

  8. Having 2 meta tanks allows players to keep playing when tank locking happens. Doesn't seem to be too often these days, but I'm sure there are a few guys that can remember seeing multiple tanks locked in their garages at once. Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk
  9. Do you have Game Pass? If so, did you claim your WoT Game Pass perks? I don't see you on Discord yet.... Have you not joined on there yet?
  10. Hey King. I haven't been scrolling through this section of the DHO forums for a while... So, sorry I missed this. Personally, at launch, I had quite a few issues with the game and recording my progression. All those issues appear to be gone these days, but I haven't dabbled in the game much more lately as I jumped on completing a few other games that I was working on. Overall, I think it's a solid showing for a Gears game. I don't see you on our Discord channel. That's where most of our Xbox conversations are happening these days. Most of it has been about the Series X lately. We also have a Dads Hideout club on the Xbox. Feel free to apply to join. It's been a little quite in there lately, but there are still lots of other dads you can find to game with.
  11. 430u first Ace! 6,401 Dmg 1,652 Asst 5,390 Blocked http://wotreplays.eu/site/5243462#arctic_region-sgrant7-object_430u
  12. A few new Ace's and MOE's... Mauschen Ace LT-432 1st MOE T32... hadn't played it in forever and my MOE jumped quite a lot from one battle. Tried to 3 mark it after and haven't succeeded yet. T110E4 Ace... and almost TD-15.3 (6k dmg and 5 kills). I low rolled on my final shot to kill the FV4005 and I bounced a kill shot off the side of both a 277's and an M48's turret. Was so angry after this battle... Obj 263 Ace... the very last battle I played in it to unlock the Obj 268 v4. T110E5... 2 marked my first tier X tank. Hadn't played it in forever, so I guess the ceiling had really dropped for it.
  13. I just 2 marked my T110E5. And that's a pretty low ceiling for a tier X LT for an Ace... I guess it really shows you how much worse they really are compared to the others.
