  1. I am not personally set up to hold land because I would probably play the usual 3x/week. Like gpc, I am not against bashing it around a few nights with the understanding that we are only in it for the fun.
  2. Yeah, I'm also worried that anything WG touches turns to sh**. WG seems incapable of making appropriately gradual changes. To be sure, balancing is probably harder than we can imagine. But there have been so many seemingly obvious and inexcusable cases of overbuffing or overnerfing. At any rate, I'd like to see something done. Weak/strong spots are a good mechanic, and the current economy does not seem to appropriately penalize premium spam that largely neutralizes the mechanic.
  3. Nice video. So 4Tankers advocates not shooting HE at wheeled vehicles. His tests show that the tires detonate the HE so that it does not penetrate. He says to shoot anything but HE at the side of a wheeled vehicle.
  4. I am probable for every night, except Monday and Wednesday. Can't do those. Would be glad to call some so it is not too burdensome. Would be great if our infrequent callers could do a little. (Sly, Dad?)
  5. I got to 0.28!!! A few more sergeants and I can get to 1.
  6. 45%? Wow. Zero. Nothing even close. Here are some criteria that will actually produce a few results: > 100 games, >1400 wn8, <50% WR. T28 prot, Spersh, FV3805, Hellcat, T1 Heavy, Rudy, T49, CGC
  7. Using >100 and >2000, I have 5 tanks. My top 3 are light tanks, and #4 and #5 are arty. Because reasons. If I go to >1600, there are all sorts of tanks. And here's something interesting. If I go to >100 and >56% WR, I have 24 tanks, and they are a wide variety. I have usually done better in WR than Win8.
  8. Hi Pappy, I play nights during the week, but don't hesitate to hit me up for a platoon if you see me. I like playing at tier 4 with my Luchs.
  9. Callers should get a smaller share. Speaking for myself, I was uh kinda bad. And, yes, I remember that clan tools thing in my old clan. It is good -- puts the onus on individuals to sign in if they want gold, rather than requiring one person to do the admin work. Also allows people to sign in if they show up, even if they don't get picked.
  10. Bummer. On balance, ranked is more fun than FL.
  11. I have been wondering how blueprints work. They seem random? I have a lot of discounts on tanks that I would never want to buy.
  12. I ran the question on the WOT forum. An interesting debate has started with good players on each side of the extinguisher v. food question. An otter guy is pro-food for everything but superheavies. Another good player is the opposite, running food in his Type 5 and nothing else. Another seems to be advising that lesser clans might want to stick with the consistency of the extinguisher. http://forum.worldoftanks.com/index.php?/topic/602792-consumables-for-cw/page__fromsearch__1
  13. Equal shares for everyone who played any battles are probably fine. It is all for one and one for all. And that's what Stalin would do. I personally don't feel like doing the work to split it up into fair, various-sized shares; that calculation would have to be something like: player's gold payout = aggregate team gold × (player's number of battles ÷ aggregate player-battles).
  14. Do you have good advice on what consumables are best for CW? My relatively uneducated feeling has always been that you get the best boost from dropping the fire extinguisher and running food plus firefighting directive. The firefighting directive is a bargain at the cost of 2 bonds. But, while the directive gives some protection, it doesn't give the same level of protection as the extinguisher. Therefore, I make an exception for tanks that have a high chance of burning. For those, I will keep the auto fire extinguisher and run some other directive. The real complication is figuring out which tanks have a high chance of burning. We are given stats on the chance of engine fire. But isn't the location of the engine and fuel tanks the most important factor? I don't have a great idea of the locations. I just rely on bits and pieces of advice that I have picked up about which tanks tend to burn. The upshot is that I keep the extinguisher in my 140, T-100, and IS-7. In those I run directive rammer, optics, and rammer, respectively. I drop the extinguisher for food and firefighting directive in my Type 5, Maus, 277, 5A, and 50B. These choices seem to work out pretty well because I have rarely been "burned." Am I doing the right thing? What do you guys think about consumables?
