I collect bonger tanks so I know I will be grinding for it. Question is will you /wotg/?
>20pdr with 800 credits AP rounds that deal 230 damage
at least it has absurdly low ground resistance on every surface
4202 players are masochists anyway, no reason why anyone else would bother getting it.
oh boy I cant wait to do 250 kills, 25,000xp & 25,000 damage each day for an entire month to get this
The A45 requirements were pretty stupid for a tier 7. You had to get like 250 kills and 250k XP in 8s days; with only the rental A45. Of course the whole thing was planned to get people to grind the first part to get the rental, realize it was nearly impossible, and give them $15 for the buyout which is what a tier 7 premium on sale costs anyway.
I took 3 vacation days, no-lifed the tank in 2 , got my 3 MoE and never touched the FV201 again.
If you weren't willing to do that, and still wanted the tank, the only way to get it was to give in to WG's jewery.
And then it just shows up again in the shops a couple months later. The real horseshit is why all the premium around that time were made bundle only. They pulled a bunch of premiums, released all these (mostly shittier) new ones, and only the French M4 ever made it in-game for gold.
WG needs to monetarize the game in the west a lot right now because they've effectively reduced the price of everything on the ru server by around 30% as long as you pay in russian rubles.
So yeah, get used to bundle-only premiums.
Thats the naked conq. It was supposed to have pic related put on it during wartime. Reaction time for fitting is the reason they got rid of it. The same for the chieftain and chobham armor.
>Turret front and ufp pretty much impenetrable for every gun at that time, regardless of ammunition
>Gee, let's put some more armor on the parts of the tank that aren't in danger of getting penetrated
>leave the tissue paper everywhere else unattended
Do you think poorly trained slavs would be able to hit a tank designed to engage them at long range anywhere except for the turret and ufp? All this happening while centurions are engaging at mid range behind hills and burgers are brawling them?
Tanks of the time where designed to take hits from the front, or not be hit at all.
They still are to a large extent, but ERA and CAGE provide a good deal of survivability without adding huge weight.
Not enough to survive another (comparable) tank shooting them in the side though.
The 51mm sides were supposed to be sufficient protection against D-25T shells. Don't ask me how anybody got that idea.
The slav tank divisions stationed in germany at that point of time were a lot of things, but poorly trained wasn't one of them.
Unless there are no Burger Kings, Wendy's, Carls Jr., Taco Bells, 5 Guys, or Whataburgers within a 50 mile radius of you, why are you eating Mcdonalds you fat, worthless fuck?!

10 DOWN 10 TO GO
I already feel like shit. I can't eat anymore. I admire your persistence
American or British Mediums? Which is better to go down first, I'm doing both eventually.
I feel ill just looking at that.
I did a 20 pack once, I threw up immediately after; I'm pretty sure my Brain demanded an immediately purge just thinking about what I just consumed in one sitting.
Do you Americans not have any fresh/nice take away places near by or something? Is everything a chain? Tfw Australian, I have many small cafes, burger places, pizza places and chinese places really close by.
British in that case. The line also manages to get worse with every tank that gets an HD update, so you should probably hurry while the tier 8 centurion is still a decent hull-down tank.
That's not in their McNuggets. Other items? Yes.
>McDonald’s adds carrageenan to “crispy chicken” items like the Crispy Chicken Classic Sandwich and the Crispy Chipotle BBQ Snack Wrap. You’ll also find carrageenan in their vanilla ice cream, McFlurries, Shakes, and in some breakfast sandwiches like the Sausage, Egg & Cheese McGriddles.
america is full of large areas where the only thing you can buy as food is garbage. there's even a name for it 'food desert'.
these areas could/should set up farms but the price of shipping excess would probably be too high for the poorfags living there.
It depends on where you live. Where I live now, there's not many options besides grocery stores. Before there was upwards of 30-50 places within a mile. The density gets really fucky at times.
it really depends
if youre in a rural area, youre fucked hard by the choices, these places are excited to have a McDonalds or a Dennys open nearby
if youre in a medium sized town/city, your choices are really limited, but you can sometimes get healthy shit but its expensive and its rare, the place you eat at are local diners, a chinese restaurant, and fast food
if youre in a major metro you are most likely spoiled for choice, you can basically find anything you want from non gmo, gluten free, free range, vegan steaks, to chocolate covered bacon, etc. also theres regional food that is prevalent as well as ethnic food, I think major cities in America are way more varied in food/restaurant choices than Europe and Asia (I havent lived in SA or Aus)
if it's like the russian meds (which i think it is) you can use most terrains the same, you just need to angle on hills and avoid ever going over them if someone's watching you.
you're a lot shorter than the nip meds which helps on those hard to use hills.
hey guys heres a cool idea
if youre a fast firing medium, how about rushing the high alpha heavy tank instead of playing peekaboo and trading 200 damage for 400?
I'm so fucking sick of watching 2-3 mediums trade with a heavy instead of just rushing him and getting his vulnerable sides and rear while he struggles to kill ONE of the mediums instead of effortlessly picking off all three.

When I try to play smart and try to hound a heavy with my medium It always backfire because the baddies in my team doesn't go with me and help, And I end in a bad spot, so I resorted to guerrilla tactics basically when I play meds
The only players that I've seen actually wolfpack heavies in dpm machines are unicunts.
And 99% of the time they wont bother either because they might take damage before the rest of the team is dead and they HAVE to.

Literally cost us the match, fucking Tomato skycancer players.
I once played with my STA-1 with two other guys playing their STA-1 and man we had a lot of fun wolfpacking dudes, Tier 10 matches were struggling though and we couldn't wolfpack most of the time.
Too bad. My win rate increased when I let the rest of the people on my team go on the front lines in the beginning. It's not like I'm a CHAI sniper or anything, but feel free to take my hits for me so I can do more late game if needed.
The only time I go in front is if I'm a fast tank that can get a shot off on a guy I detect then run away. Although back then I used to passive scout, but those days are long gone.
Its annoying that this is the optimal playstyle.
>Maps favour "corner brawls" aka retard heavies poking each other every 10 seconds
>TDs shafted by this normally camp and watch said corners, or the only open space that goes around the corner

Double size maps when?
>people who talk shit, then fire two shots, hit one (which bounces) and die doing 0 damage
Probably. Had a Dicker Max miss TWO stationary shots against the rear of a stationary T32 at 10HP. Literally pissed away an easy kill. We still won but it was way more down to the wire than it needed to be. E-25 who did 0 damage spent the entire match screaming what to do at us despite the fact he's 46% garbage. I know how to play my tank. You don't. The other amusing part was when I got killed by a tank that slipped past our team late match and managed to dodge my shotgun (poor form on my part, I admit)
He then waltzed up to our oblivious SU-14-1 who didn't even pay attention until he got shot once. Wargaming needs to force an extra large minimap for arty and force people to play an arty tutorial teaching situational awareness before you can play arty.
Starting to remember why I stopped playing.

Stop bullying low tier tanks senpai, it really makes a difference in xp
From my past experiences the test serves seems to attract the worst of the worst, I doubt things changes since then. Also compare their clan stats with the other servers' ones. Also you wouldn't have problems with language barriers.
Also forgot to mention, on a russian stream, guy on redshise south spawn on his 50b, he goes east and climbs the hill, he gets spotted, literally all campers on the north hill spawn can shoot at him(he's spotted and there's 4+ enemy tanks spotted there),
And nobody shoots him,that's how bad they are. Try doing that on EU server, you get balanced in 2 secs

The Churchills arent as bad as everyone makes them out to be. But theyre frustrating when bottom tier.
Matilda is great, Conq is great, 215b isnt too bad.
Caern is awful though.

Rather, blue. I didn't even use gold ammo for credits either, but I got burnt out.
Look at this shitter here >>127764721. If you don't pick SS first and foremost and them minmax the fuck out of your tonk (like, camo on everything that isn't an heavy, repairs on heavies, case by case basics on arty) you're a fucking retard. No seriously, abuse the fuck out of the spotting mechanics with camo, the commander and radioman view range skills and SS, you'd be a total tool to not do so.
>lightly improves like a dozen stats
That's the reason why it's shit. It's better to minmax the shit you actually need than having 2% of increase to everything.
>yfw War Thunder's tanks drive more realistically than WoT's ones
Vickers Mediums are vomit.
Matilda is based.
Church I is the worst tier 5 heavy, but still better off than most tier 5s.
Church VII is dogshit unless you get perfect MM.
BP is better for tier than the VII, but still needs the enemy team to drive into it 1 by 1 to have a good match.
Caern is the worst tier 8 heavy.
Conqueor and 215b are pretty good.
I have the Action X researched but only have 600k creds and no t8 prem. Feels bad man.
just treat yourself goy you deserve it :D
a fool and his money are soon parted.
Holy crap, that package is a 100 bucks. Are you people insane?
We totally won this one guys I swear it wasn't 3-15 stomp defeat
>this dude come around the corner with 90mm gun and starts shooting HE at you turret for 16 damage, how do you react
you ain't seen nothin yet
actually I do I made that webm
being good at being a scout/light tank is some more advanced thing, first play is7 line to learn how to play
the higher tier light tanks are all pretty good, german line might be the easiest for new players as their low tiers are really good (pz1c,luchs)
It's ok. Only the main engine was shit. The secondary engine generated enough power to run the turret drive and IR light of the early chieftains. This meant they could find a comfy hill. Break down. Fortify their position with the usual impromptu logs and mud piles. And then stay safe fucking shit up.
>implying stacking the flat bonus on BIA, vents and food doesn't give a significant benefit
>implying camo is worth being picked in the first 3 skills
git gud neger
sixth sense/safe stowage/snap shot/off road driving>repairs>bia>VR and camo
Kinda looks the same desu senpai
T6/7 yeah seems to be fine but T8 it seems to be useless and the gun will not get a buff for a prem vehicle but then again maybe it will since pref MM no longer exists on new prem tanks.
>the Short 8.8 needs a buff
no its alright for t6, its just that tiger and tiger 2 are 1 tier higher than they should be, tiger vs t34 85, tiger 2 vs is
in t6 matches tiger 1's armor would acually be worth something
smooth ride only has a bonus when you are turning and moving, and a tiny one at that. compared to off road driving which will make your vehicle feel slightly more nimble on any surface that's not a road.
seems like it's a matter of preference really, they are both worse than getting bia, but bia and repairs are only worth it if you have a full crew
You won't believe it, but it wasn't me that asked: I very well know they won't implement them until the end of times.
Anyway, pictures prove you otherwise.
Italian tanks existed. They just sucked. A lot.
Not even, 171 pen with the APCR paired with 0.38 dispersion its not fun to aim weak spots, also because its a short barrel it is slower.
I'm talking about the Short 8.8 in general, For example the VK 30.01 D uses the short 8.8 as its top gun and its exactly the same as the Jap Tiger which is no fun in a Tier 7 medium
Thank god the SP I C exists
From ww1 to ww2 italy always had OCs, the started making them again in the...70s? They had more tanks than fucking china thats for sure.>>127787618
They had a fee decent ones, and some good TDs too.
dont fall for the gold noob meme
sometimes you have to use gold to pen a tank from your current position, you should do this as soon as possible rather than wait and see your team flop and lose the game
people who run pure gold are disgusting, people who use gold to take out hard targets just play smart
"just flank" is not possible most of the time due to shit 3 corridor map design, better sling that gold than wait for your flank to fall cause you cant contest enemy tanks frontally
I know, but that's exactly the thing, the Jap Tiger isn't exactly nimble, so getting to those positions isn't easy. The gun depression surely helps though, so does the awesome reload time.
Also I really like the HT No VI is just that playing Tier 8 matches is very tiring for not so much reward.
I know sometimes i have to use it, take O-I Exp or O-I for example, ruined T5/6 matches and if you cannot flank and have to take it head on gold is the only way.
I got the Valentine II on sale and filled it with all gold mostly for those hard targets, even then Matilda will wipe the floor with me.
>the Short 8.8 needs a buff
nyet tovarish, too many tenks to rebalanse)))))
>meanwhile same QF 6-pdr has different stats for 3 nation tanks
>of course soviet lend lease 6-pdr is the best one
Which really kills it on NA. You tend to get tier 8 at least half the time in a tier 6 on NA, and if your tank can't deal with IS-3s I hope your have access to SHs.
Lets not forget the biased as fuck Zis-4 compared to any western 57mm.
Ain't no shame to sling gold in Valentine II, HELL its the only way to play that thing
>tier IV tank
>with tier II gun
>people legitimately get pissy when you pen their matildas with gold
Even their Tankettes, The Carro Veloce series
My Matilda bounces shots when its is top tier, even T5 it can still bounce so exp defo can and has done.
O-I on the otherhand is fucked, japanses heaby line is broken anyways and was basically made up.
The whole concept of the tankette is a complete failure, it was since its inception, and yet they kept going for it instead of developing a proper armored vehicle.
They're the nearest thing to russians we have in WoT: they're the true cancer of the internet. Ask to anyone that plays, or has played, to CS:GO or Dota 2 how do they like their russian comrades in their games.
>WG dealing with the physics involved in those vehicles
ever played any gsg like hoi?
italy didnt had the resources to develope proper tanks, they had to build battleships and stuff to keep the mediteran sea somewhat save from the brits and french while trying to hold the worthless landmasses they conquered in africa
Germans gave them some stugs which they used to some effect, which isnt a concept too diferent from tankettes
What is a tank like that even supposed to do when it gets circled like that? I was under the impression that you make a bee line to the nearest wall and then put your back up against it
forgot to enable sound
I've been looking at this game for a while and I was wondering where I could get it. I was looking for a torrent on Pirate Bay because I don't want to buy a game until I know it's good and I haven't sen any torrent links for a cracked copy,
Anyone have a good copy of world of tanks?

I had a blast with the AT 7, legitimate fun. There are 2 ways I played it depending on the matchup

And so on. The gun is awesome though, it's just on such a painful platform. Now I kinda remember why I stopped playing it.
The funny part WG actually nerfed it. Made the RoF and aimtime worse. Used the be arguably the best gun in the tier, which made up for the awful platform. There isn't really a reason to continue that line anymore, the Ferdi and JT buffs made them objectively better in every way. The 183 is funny, but it will also bankrupt you if you play it too much.
Just for the record, I had this battle some minutes ago. Two heavies just sat in front of my gun eating shots. And that's it. Got an ace because two retards tried to trade shots with me while I was poking out of the only decent corner in Kharkov. I still got hit in the cupola somehow, until I got flanked by a goldspamming medium that wasted a pair of rounds on my tracks.
Yeah, I guess you're right. The point is that I still kinda want the 183.
when that line came out people didnt really knew how to deal with them so they seemed op
now everybody knows their weakspots, commanders cupolar, poor view range, low alpha, so they became way less scary
Lazy WG coding. When they switched the Awesome Panther to that, I assume they just said if you have X unlocked you get Y on the SPIC. The AP used the heavy line Waffe gun, so I guess you got it converting into the guns on that.

There wasn't. EA briefly tried to remake it into a f2p, as though they thought the C&C4 format was a good concept that could work as a f2p/p2w game. Needless to say there was a massive backlash, and they just cancelled the project entirely.
> as though they thought the C&C4 format was a good concept that could work as a f2p/p2w game
Because C&C4 was SUPER SUCCESSFUL. Right?
I fucking hate EA.
I never thought seeing the C&C title on a game would make me anything but happy until C&C4 happened.
It was such a shitty send off to a classic franchise. I don't understand how they could make Generals, which was fun and generally well received, and then go in that direction for the final mainline C&C game.
I'll miss the messiah.

You now realize that although the 4202 has been lowered to the level of a stock tier 8 it will still see tier X games.

Random Number Generation
I used it ironically to underline how the event was a random event.
Four arties all hitting a moving target in a row at the first shot of the battle is just an unlucky event, or a very lucky event on their side since the hitrate of an artillery is on average 40%, so the chance of all them hitting is like 2,5%.
I'm already green, there's no need to go deeper.
>tfw killing every light with a SU-100 in the first minute and a half of the game
How is this a question? Use the top 122mm. If it's bone stock you don't need the tracks to mount anything, so you can just freeXP the turret and put on the first 122 you should have unlocked from the KV-85.
How is this a question? Use the top 85mm. If it's bone stock you don't need the tracks to mount anything, so you can just freeXP the engine and put on the second 85 you should have unlocked from the T-34-85.
if you have under 2k wn8 you are literally subhuman and should kill yourself
Does anyone know if or when the Sentinel will be available on WoT Xbox?
something's wrong with this picture
you're actually in a tier 7 match, the MM just couldn't find any actual applicable tier 7s and had to improvise.
This is something the developers have admitted to being a thing.
I have 55% overall and I shamelessly abandoned that tank at 43% winrate over 80 games or something. (don't grind the gun, free xp it, you'll literally burn out on world of tanks if you have to grind it and then play the still shitty non-stock tank)
