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

QB got a press release from WG and shared the info on his Twitch stream...

Update will come in late October.

Introduction of another Rampage/Domination/Whatever mode (maybe called Rubicon for some reason)

New Berlin and Paris maps are only for the Rampage mode.

The T22sr tier X Soviet med can be earned through a special season of personal missions; unclear if the missions are for random battles or Rampage battles.

I'm imagining all the insane hoops WG is going to make you jump through to get a "free" tier X reward premium...there are going to be a lot of disappointed tankers.

Of note...

Circular render range.

Emblems/Inscriptions will now provide a small crew bonus which is cool.

Chieftain is now available for supertesters so maybe it is still going to be the new Brit tier X heavy.

Centurion Action X might arrive with the next patch, FV4202 will be a premium, probably a tier VIII (but how do we get it?).

KV-220 and T-54 firs prot. buff.....why?

No more South Coast.

Voice notifications for Dynamic Platoons...that will be annoying.

No more South Coast. Goodbye yet another map. New maps in a mode I don't care about. So overall, seems like a lot less maps lately.

 

Emblems/Inscriptions offering bonuses--total bs. Now we'll "all" have to have them to max out whatever the max bonus will be. Money grab. Was nice to have a purely cosmetic aspect.

 

I dropped the T82 after the huge td nerf a while back. Now it'll be a Tier 4? and the T18 will be tier 3? I don't get why they even bother messing around down there. The T18 at tier 2 was pretty iconic, especially if played (or played against them) pre-nerf.
