Welcome to the forums sgt. flint :)

sgt. flint : (24 April 2017 - 11:38 PM)

Hey All......anyone out there from 2 years ago remember me?

sgt. flint : (24 April 2017 - 11:39 PM)

just started playing WOT again and looking for a clan or group

bergsteiger : (25 April 2017 - 08:31 AM)

Crazy night. Got all my wins AFTER I quit tooning. Very unusual.

The_Dad : (25 April 2017 - 08:36 AM)

similar experience last night... all my wins were BEFORE I started platooning

NeoGP : (25 April 2017 - 10:25 AM)

Hey Flint!

xtc4 : (25 April 2017 - 11:28 AM)

With new mm, having good players at the top of the list seems to make a huge difference. And platooning seems to almost always put you at bottom of the list. So perhaps it makes sense that you good players are winning when playing solo.

Archaic : (25 April 2017 - 11:14 PM)

Yes, platoons seem to be pretty gimped with 3-5-7

sgt. flint : (26 April 2017 - 02:12 AM)

Hey Neo, yes i remember you. any others from the old crew still running?

NeoGP : (26 April 2017 - 10:17 AM)

not sure man..I haven't played wot in 2+ years, alot of changes throughout the 5 clans

SGrant7 : (26 April 2017 - 12:05 PM)

Haven't been on much in the last few days, but are 2 man platoons fairing much better?

bergsteiger : (26 April 2017 - 02:38 PM)

Platooning doesn't seem as big of an issue as Tier 8s. Don't think I've had a single game that I was top tier in an VIII

Happy Friday Dads!

bergsteiger : (28 April 2017 - 09:05 AM)

Friday indeed!

Talisker : (28 April 2017 - 12:55 PM)

Friday :bnb

Old_Fart_63 : (28 April 2017 - 05:04 PM)

I've done two rooms in my home with bamboo and it worked great, Just remember to leave that space for swelling of flooring. Can't really add anything to what has already been said.

Old_Fart_63 : (28 April 2017 - 05:05 PM)

The new laminate flooring "No nails" is a big change in flooring and it looks beautiful

What I'm saying though, and I'm not a tank expert, but you know how some lines are known for gun depression, and other lines are known as brawlers, and another line might be known more for sniping...what would the new line be known for? I heard a Dad say just the other day that the end-goal seems to be having a duplicate of every tank in every line. So every line gets a T-71, every line gets an IS-3, every line gets a Hellcat, etc. So what is the purpose of adding a new nationality, other than just being something "new"? Surely someone out there is going to think it's the best change ever. I'm just not sure I get what was "missing" that we need a new line. And I mean it questioningly, I don't know.


Basically, I think WG wants new content to keep the game going. Perhaps they are running low on options for the current nations and need a new nation (or a few).

I'm glad its not just more Chinese copies of Soviet stuff, Czech tanks are certainly more interesting that Chinese TDs or SPGs.


Edit: Also what's up with my username being purple? Stands out too much...

Pretty sweet. From old "For The Record" posts the T40 looks to be a tier 6-7 medium, most likely the premium WG will release a patch before the rest of the Czech tanks are released (just like the Japanese Tiger being released before the rest of the Japanese heavies).


Apparently the Skoda T40 is a tier VI with an 88mm gun.

Your post-count title is Assassin? Maybe it goes with that? Maybe you are a board moderator now? Maybe someone is fiddling with your settings? I like Assassin better than Commander, that was confusing.

So, in other words, we're getting a "new" T-40. See what I'm saying? I'm not a history buff--did the Czechs have their own tanks, or is WG going to take the same old tanks and rebrand them and call it a new line for the sake of pushing new content?

I'm having a horrible work day and taking it out on WG :-(

Not certain what you're getting at, but I'm going to get you on board for the Czech tanks somehow:happyyes.

From what I see they are generally new tanks, with new in-game models, primarily designed by Skoda, a real Czech company that was a major arms dealer before WWII. The T-25 at tier VI and the T-34/100 (maybe a T-34/85 but with a 100mm gun?) at tier VII might be familiar to us, but most of the other speculative tanks seem new.....Mykk clearly demands more research.

Purple means you talk a lot....really.

Your title changes at 2000 posts to Assassin and that title gets a shiny new purple color.

Woohoo!!:lol

So WoT is getting new nations then, probably with very truncated tank lines like the Japanese.

- There will apparently not be any "European tree."
- Czechoslovaks, Italians and Swedish will likely be separate nations.
