Secpmd for BENIS
record turnout earlier, 8 (eight) members simultaneously on at once! (wow)
Am I the only one that likes the STA-2? It has good mobility, fantastic gun handling and awesome gun depression and stuff.
If the T-54 Proto and the CDC are anywhere near as based, I need to get my hands on them.
Gondola rival clan when
Also just got accused of reload hax in my SU-152 by 3 people, clutch won the game. Whys it gotta be hax, why can't I actually have a 17 second reload that isn't even that outrageous.
>getting shot in the CDC
spot the green
>huge fucking tank
>giant turret that lets you get shot even when using all your gun depression
>bad gun handling, need to aim
you get hit in the CDC, like it or not. Go look at your average damage taken in a game. You get hit. And if it's your mortal enemy the T49 you're fucked.
No it won't. It's armor is better sloped and your average HE round isn't going to go through because of the lack of normalization. When I say average I mean almost all tier 8's, IS-3, mediums, whatever.
I'm not arguing that the STA-2 is better than the CDC I'm a different guy. The STA-2 does have good gun handling though.

Back to dust collection for you.
who even plays this tank? (The percentage on the right is the MoE %)
Just something to keep in mind, if the T49 is shooting at it from the front on level ground it ranges from 0% to 30% chance of penetrating with it's standard HE. Unless you're talking about artillery, in which case yes you will get penetrated by quite a few of them
Armour comes in 3 tiers.
Shit that everything pens
Enough to survive arty/not have them salivating when they see your tank on the list
Enough to brawl effectively
STA & CDC both come in the 1st category.
slower than it should be tbqhwy. If it matched it's irl counterpart it'd probably be the fastest vehicle in the game
>poor gun handling
if you're used to tier 10 mediums I guess. The one complaint I have is that the shell speed is pretty low.
>shitty modules damage and fire
it's a small tank so yeah, but I haven't been set on fire yet.
>If it matched it's irl counterpart it'd probably be the fastest vehicle in the game
No it wouldn't.
Sekrit Dokuments would show up a new T-62A lightweight with a 1000hp engine at tier 7
I think you're just making a connection between the SP1c's low shell speed and wargaming's yet to be unveiled british light line which will have low shell speeds too? english is hard

Hold on while I dynamic gameplay this guy camping behind a house at 50kph then keep dynamic gameplay'ing him unless he repairs his track.
It's WG's own fault.
They should make mandatory tutorial vids to watch on how this game is server based, penetration mechanics (iirc there already exists one but they don't promote it at all) and map awareness.
>TD fight with full HP AT2
>Take him to 20hp with a hit and splash underneath him
>Kill gets taken as I fire
some gameplay tips on the loading screen would be good aswell
for example way too often i see people only shooting he, even at higher tiers
recently had a t54 as top tier on my team that would only shoot he
>Playing T8 light
>Enemy has a top tier WTE100
>He's only firing HE
That kinda works though. It's a huge caliber and always does around 200-400 damage per hit. Of course you're gimping yourself but not as hard as people shooting HE in low caliber guns.

I really wish WG follow through with their talks about giving players more alternatives in weapon choice. They already did a good job, I think, with the second german TD line, the jap heavies until t8 and some czech tanks.
I would love to play the T-44 and T-34-2 with the big guns.
If you gave it 350 alpha instead of 320, ridiculous ground resistances like it already has and a sekrit document from the Moscow archives that proves it actually had 12 degrees of gun depression it would be ok
Give it 440 alpha damage
accuracy of 0.35
worse aimtime than regular gun but make gun bloom even better because lmao hidden stats
buff regular guns depression to 6 degrees but give 115mm 5 degrees to make it seem worse
replace APCR ammo with AP ammo but keep the velocity almost identical because 90% of shitter wouldn't notice anyway
give it APCR as premium ammo but with more penetration than regular guns HEAT because bigger caliber = better penetration
reduce max ammo count because it really really really matters 90% of the time
There, wasn't that difficult

The IS-6 and the RU where the only ones that bothered me. And both where on 1 shot HP.
1 artillery, unless I got massively unlucky, easy to deal with.
KV-3. circle/sidehump/range fuck.
Scorpion, circle or view range.
If I hadn't bounced the IS 3 times with HEAT because RNG, I would have been long gone from the Scorpion to either deal with the arty or play cat and mouse with the enemy Ru.
I probably would have still choked even if I killed him. I was already at 2k damage/spotting.

you said you couldnt get his ass because of td
do you even know how heat works?

Doesnt matter how much money they spend on equipment. Arabs will always find a way to make it not work and then proceed to waste money on the next toy.
They simply are naturally that way. Just look at all the pussys fleeing to europe and leaving their families behind without fighting

It hurts until this day.
Magical tank, slightly less magical teams.
When you get the top engine you can go fast like sanic! Seriously the maneuverability and speed on this thing is so good you can catch up to a turning turret that you are circle strafing. If someone is alone and you get in close its a pure rape machine. Also rams pretty nicely too.

Yeah they flattened to turret so you cant shoot the top plate unless your in a a tall tank or at a favorable angle.
The pens not bad. After 350 games in a 59-16 I guess I'm used to dealing with low pen though.
got plated by one, totally balanced tank tovarish :^)

>imblying I'm ever buying that piece of shit
thanks for the crew wargaming :^)
Yes it has better mobility and armor. Its not huge. But unlike other prems which are just slightly worse than the average tank at its tier, the Bromwell is just straight up better version of an already decent tank at t6.
According to my friend who browses reddit, they think the mod. 1 is a mediocre tank that needs a buff, and they think the T-34-3 is now the best t8 prem.
Why are redditors so bad at this game?
The mod 1 is just one of the those badly balanced tanks that dominates when top tier and quickly becomes liquid shit with each tier 10 added to the match.
The T-34-3 is decent now, but the IS-6 will always be the most shitter-proof tier 8 pref.

APCR carries the shit that makes it fit in the barrel all the way, sabot doesn't
while i understand that they need to do so in order to hear from the majority, i'm still incredibly triggered that there was no one in that room who was legitimately good at the game and/or wasn't already a paid shill by WG.
from an endgame/balance perspective it would've been far better to get people like Anfield or Orzanel involved as well, maybe even a bitter cunt like le ebin fat dutch man or foech
I wanted to like the Comet but it just burned me out.
The idea of a bigger, better armoured Cromwell should be attractive but its best gun is utter garbage even in its own tier. Its a struggle to be competitive in T7 matches let alone the pure hell that are T8 and 9 matches in a Comet.
>Because she supposedly gathered the feedback of the userbase from her blog.
oh shit anon thats fucking terrible then. ritas blog has probably the most retarded players in the entire game for fanbase.
imo wg should find long time players, preferable from closed beta, who are neither super bad nor super unicum and ask them.

T. Regular ammo user in the obj 430II
What's hard about that? The Cromwell has great pen for its tier and has light tank mobility to flank whatever it can't pen frontally. The Comet has better handling due to the vstab, but virtually the same hard stats and worse mobility while also seeing tier9s. There's a reason most faggots just APCR snipe with it.
I feel like these community contributor meetups are a waste of time because their ideas are lousy, biased because they are streamers/jewtubers, and generally not backed by data only available to wg.
>wanting more lines to keep players interested
and this was a choice line made me realize how disconnected these people representing the community are, and complete lack of understanding of what drives the success of these games.
people dont give a shit about more tank lines, at least not primarily, people only give a shit about getting advantage or prestige over others and that's the primary driving force behind these games.
watching jingle vids is just all sorts of cringe. any point the 'community' made WG is already aware of and have thought of elegant solutions to, both with player experience and WG's economics in mind.
i fear this little meetup will only further distance WG and playerbase relation because the playerbase simply just doesnt know shit, at least not to the degree that WG does.
>stating the obvious
Actually they say there is going to be a update coming next week, bug fixes I guess (hopefully), but there was also some rumors of a new arms dealer being added. Chink/Gook/Nip tanks with a mixture of other Soviet and French vehicles, was curious if anyone had more info than that is all.

>on track to the IS-7

>Huge, slow, poorly armoured
>Among the worst premium pen, can't even reliably pen some tier 8s
It's incredible when the enemy team is shit and ignores your existence while you farm damage on soft targets. I can't think of many other tier 7+ tanks that have a less meaningful impact on matches.
It's similar to the mod1 in that it's a downtiered t9. I won one and have a Pershing, I like both about equally but the higher rof is very nice.
This is a bigger meme than the 'lee is good' meme.
Post buff IS7 is a very competent tank, stop fucking calling it bad, WG will buff it again and make it an IS3 in tier 10.
degenerate as fuck tbqhwyl (to be quite honest with you lad)
>mfw sold the T-10 to fund the Obj 704 just before the sale happened
Well, time to credit grind it back
That bad? I though the BL-10 would grant me Russian Bias in all conflicts
You're just paying for the same gun to go a tier higher, the ISU gets to face tier 6's, it's by far the most comfy tank of the line. Your camo is enough to be invisible too, especially facing tanks with shittier view range
A closed beta, an open beta, 60 patches and almost 6 years later, arty still exists, critical hits still do nothing, MM and RNG are still a complete disaster and tanks still stop completely when detracked.
WG's team in charge of fixing things incompetence is second only to WG's team in charge of making maps.
>shoot side of Bulldog with JgE100
>not only does Bulldog not die, but it walks away with no damage
You obviously dont understand that your shot didnt hit the actual tank hull. You can shoot the wheels all day long(i know you didnt plan to but it happens) but as long as you dont hit and penetrate the hull itself you wont do damage. It could as well say “that was closr in those cases.
Spaced armour on tanks can give you the same illusion of blocked damage while you actually didnt penetrate the actual armour.
>Sir, we have an issue. There we are running low on steel plates, there's no way we can produce this new tank
>OK, but what if you replaced all those steel plates with plywood sheets?
>And braced them with ammoracks?
>server tries to calculate the damage from the fragmentation of a shell
>the whole server cluster fails and catches fire
WG is already squeezing the shit out of those servers, and they already have awful problems with server-client synchronisation. Don't make things worse. Please. If you want spalling and fragmentation to be taken into account you can play War Blunder: Ground Forces, but be very careful, because sometimes implementing shit like that in a slav game might be a very bad idea.
What the fuck are these servers? There are other games with more complexity out there and you don't hear anything about THEM going up in flames if you even think about implementing a new mechanics.
Dude 90% of the mechanics, like matchmaking, map rotation, shell penetration, ballistic, map size, spotting system, are limited by server's power.
WG already moved a shitload of calculations to the servers because ruskies have such crappy PCs the only way to have them playing this hellish game is by keeping the load on the client as low as possible.
>Chaffee with a 9 skill crew, vstab, optics and rammer

fucking tier 9 games s mh
One we capped out before I encountered a tank, one I got hit by artillery before encountering a tank
I like it. No use being arrogant and acting that all is well like Storm and SerBs old Q&As. They know that we know a lot of things are bullshit, and they know can't do anything about it, so might as well pretend you're on our side instead of WGRUs; oh and please buy the tiger patton next week.
I'm legitimately surprised they admitted the store bundles are a bad deal though.
>also have IS-6 premium
>look at their stats side by side
>IS-3 blows it out of the water on paper
>do way better in the IS-6 anyway
What makes it better? Turret traverse speed? Speed in general?
Everything about the IS-6 on paper is vastly inferior, save for a few mm of armor in very specific but unimportant places
Pref MM has a major impact on tanks that depend on armour.
The nerfed the pen on it, but it still does apocalyptic damage if it pens. They also tweaked the platform so it's more like the rest of the line (ie slower but stronger armour). Turret is super strong on it now.
That makes sense.
Although I still do shit in games where the IS-3 is the biggest tank in the match.
Do the stats and memes from /wotg/ just get to my head and i need to git gud?
You should be doing well as a top tier IS-3, if you have the BL-9. You're likely being too overconfident, it's not invulnerable and most people will hit 2 at the sight of an IS-3.

It is more fun than the IS-3, since it relies less on armour while gaining pretty much everything else. I'd much rather be in a T-10 in a tier X match than an IS-3 in a tier 9 one.
It's unquestionably the better of the tier 9 Russian heavies at this point. Which makes me somewhat sad since there was no point in going down the IS-4 line. IS line now beats it at every tier, except maybe the 6 since the KV-85 gun depression gives me cancer.
I actually prefer the KV-4 to the IS-3
