WOW IT'S FUCKING NOTHING: THE PATCH
How come no one complains about the T-54 First prototype being OP, when it does have pretty much identical stats to as the Type 59 when it was first released?

Whatever it was there was an explosion and it caused death and destruction of a vintage, and well kept, machine.

What's your excuse?
Only a hundred something dollars for a tier 3 tank, goyim, don't miss out on that bargain

I wish archive.moe would still work. There were several posts in early/mid-2014 perfectly predicting the NA end times.
Spics everywhere, total numbers falling, WGNA becoming ultra merchants, nothing but bronies, furries, and military retards left of the US population.
Only thing that wasn't predicted was that content would grind to a halt, I think.

I also like how WG determined that the armour was what was broken on the T18, and not the gun that one-shots everything in tier 1-2.
Gotta love seeing aimed shots flying everywhere, RNGing into tracks and spaced armor, especially since every greenshitter and above on NA spams HEAT constantly out of their tier 9-10 meds and then fails to pen shit like IS-3s.
Cause some faggot at WarGaming thought preferential matchmaking is OP and yanked it off the shop
Watching this piece of shit game crash and burn on NA is probably the most fun I had with WoT in the past 2 years.
Rip in piss you fucking slav time waster.

That on top of my habit of selling tanks to buy other tanks earlier, if people saw how many credits I've wasted in vain without a care they would find me in real life and beat me to death.
>finished the tier 6 scout grind
>no sixth sense, no camo yet
I wish that free exp to crew exp thing was still around.
As an EU player, hearing that NA is dying is giving me mixed feelings.
Most thread traffic is NA, so thread ist tot if that happens, but the shitposting will follow it to the grave.
At least I have my clan to play with.
RIP /wotg/ - 2012, 2015
CW 2.0 is killing NA clans at an alarming rate. Having to play hours of strongholds just so you can CW is stupid, on top of having to grind tanks for use in SH/CW. And it's not like there's fresh people capable of competent leadership replacing those exiting either, so when there are no good fights the end game dies. Doesn't help that the game is poorly advertised, too new player unfriendly, AW being a viable alternative and grinds too long for the NA audience.
This game is really dying on NA.
WG don't think it be like it is but it do.
I tried to migrate to AW but the game was so shit; I'd honestly like to know what made people pick AW over WOT.
Not a shill, not buttmad, just genuinely curious.
PVE mode offers respite from range and ptsd that is pubs infested by siemas and beaners.
Obsidian seem to offer a ray of hope in an abyss made dark by WG's empty promises.
Game is still shit though and just another flavor of evil, having played both.
It's so fuckin' easy that's why people pick it. They claim it's because of "balance" or that it's more competitive but they just do better in it
Also it's a fresh game that looks pretty
I agree about the relative comfiness of PVE, but it feels rather unrewarding and it gets repetitive fast.
I've had enough by the time PVE became a chore nearly as bad as PVP.
The tonks look like crap, though. Not pretty at all.
Has this game started ruining shooters for anyone else? Most FPS/TPS feel so barebones now. You don't ever have to take into account that you have a body, and have to position yourself in specific ways. The recoil is laughably low and you don't get punished as hard for using something in a way that doesn't suit it, and at the same time most equipment and choices for guns all feel the same. I'm even starting to appreciate that this game is unbalanced and that the matchmaking system exists as it does.
Fourth campaign is coming
Will NA survive the winter?
Pretty much. We get used to the positioning/armor/"tactical" aspect of the game and anything without it feels weird.
We're masochists tbh
Oh and taking damage is mostly meaningless because the TTK is so low and even games like Counter Strike have a plethora of rounds. Death is actually important and because of the different classes and roles within classes killing other people and prioritizing targets actually has a significant impact on how a game can turn out. And there is hardly any fluff, all of it is relegated to user mods, even shit meme tanks are still gameplay tools.
I hate this game but I can't at the same time.
Not really, at least not for me personally, because there is a direct correlation between skill and outcome, performance and reward in typical FPS whereas it's tenuous at best in WoT, with RNG/MM and all.
>inb4 carry harder you are the only constant meme, yeah no fuck you m8
The only constant meme only applies to individual games, over long periods of time separation of who is good or not becomes clearer. FPS's have a higher correlation between skill and outcome on a game per game basis but that comes with skill ceiling plateau's and games with less depth besides who can click faster. FPS's really only shine when it comes to unique movement systems that take a lot of mechanical skill to master, and most every one of those games are deader than WoT.
Not even the guy, but come on. You've got to be baiting. Clearly there is a separation over time of the decent players, the unicunts and the shitters, but you absolutely cannot deny everyone has bad games here and there where they have no control over what killed them. Unfortunate ammoracking early on, or being one shotted by arty at 70km/h, among others.
I'm fairly sure he agrees that "the only constant" only has meme status in individual games, but applies over long periods of time, hence mentioning "separation becoming clearer". I think he just expressed himself badly.
This game has changed a lot since.
>tier 4 vs Tier 8
what the fuck
old MM was better, you'd actually get some variation in your matches
well gee, good thing thing i didn't want to play domination again or anything
>and the new Rampage mode will be coming as a micropatch.
lol. someone is so getting fired over this
kek what has gotten into you, anon?

Wow, thanks WGNA. But you'll have to pay me more if you want me to play your shitty product.
>- Storm's earlier statement on this topic: "We decided to release the patch with all the emblems giving the same bonuses and introduce the full set of bonuses only later"
my "Storm is intentionally sabotaging the game" theory is growing more credible by the day
>Starting with this update, province owners will have the possibility to join both province and landing tournaments along with other challengers once the province is attacked by land or via an auction. Thus, in order to defend their province, a Clan has to go through all the tournament rounds.
does WG even play their own game?
>He still thinks he shouldn't see weeb shit on 4chan
>Earlier, Storm promised that players over 2000 battles will have the unpopular map tiering disabled, this however was not done in 9.10, it is still planned
Gee, you mean limiting the mid tiers to 6-7 maps over and over was a bad idea?
how do you like your ptsd storm?

great team tbh, fam
are these retards invading europe now
fuck that, this nigger did 0 damage while being top tier
>only 2 T9 tanks in the whole match
>in a Conqueror
the only good t8 medium is the french prem CDC, it has absolutley no armor but its as mobile as light tanks and has amazing gun performance compared to the rest of the meds at its tier.
there are fun to play mediums at tier 8, but they arent too competetive to those heavies
panther 2 or t44 can be fun to play, but if you meet some higher tier that knows what he is doing, he will bully the fuck out of you
>1min into the game
>only good t8 medium is the french prem CDC
started to like the p2 by the end of the grind to the e50, stockholm syndrome at work.
it has many problems such as bad aim time, huge target with no armor, good top speed but low hp/t, its a good
T44 has good mobility and very decent gun performance despite the shit pen, but its literally a ammo rack on tracks
seems like the only good t8's are premium, type59 pre nerf and CDC now.
shekel up goy
yeah, i like p2 aswell, 88 gunplay on a mobile platform
but its not a tank you can really push with as most same tiers will mostl likly outperform you if they arent retarded
i had alot of fun with the centurion aswell if i managed to get the enemy to fight on hills or get hull down, havent unlocke the pershing yet but i guess its pretty much the same but with a way worse gun
Nope. It still sees Tier 7s. Same with the Luchs, T-50, Pz 38t n.A., and M5A1. Only thing is the M5A1 can actually pen things while the M5 Stuart can't pen shit since it's stuck with the 37mm gun. It desparately needs a better top gun other than a crappy autoloader. Which should be either the 57mm or 6-pdr gun. If not both.
really i thought they got rid of that
it makes no sense in the current meta anyways
luchs acually can perform in those tiers, but the others are not even cannon fooder
>might as well try grinding the 13 75 again, 13 90 seems cool
>remember that I'm dumb as a sack of bricks and can't into light tenks
>tactically nope the fuck out
>go back to playing heavies
>HURR BIG GUN GO BOOM
>write blog post on a ded general
What a time to be alive.
Don't worry anon, I can't into light tanks either. I've only grinded them to get to level 5 medium/heavies
Medium seems to be the lowest I can go - I just need that BIG GUN HURRRRR in order to play.
I do quite well, I've always catered to support/sniper style things in video games rather than assault and mobility and shit
So my garage consists of like 3 tank destroyers, 3 heavies and one medium
alot of meds can bounce shell from the turret and lights can outspot enemies
also you are fast and can claim key spots on the map and circle heavies and shit
It's also hard to be useful in them without using mods and equipment. Namely the viewrange circle on minimap one. Also you have to learn the best areas/bushes for spotting without being spotted yourself. WG doesn't provide enough resources/tutorials to actually teach people how to scout properly.
OH MY WORD! Caught QSF rigging HT missions, they just searched eachother and started shooting eachother in the mantlet.
I value a good scout for my team and I know it's important, but I just can't do it myself. That, and I don't really want to.
Besides, what good is the scouting if there is no support with Heavies/TD's to make use of it? I do a good job of making sure the scouts good job doesn't go down in vain
wasted opportunity to get fastytoddler fans banned friend :^)
is8 is a good tank, just dont play it like a heavy
tier 10 gun, mobility like a med, turrent can bounce some shots .. awful gun depression and shit hull amor
its no e75 but it can get the job done if you arent retarded, play it like a medium
I CAN'T BELIEVE IT
Unfortunately I started spectating them way too late. This is all I saw:
>wanting to bang speedystillborn's rat faced mail order bride
So, are PC players not getting shit for halloween? Xbox360 owners get a new mini game and ghost tanks and we get shit?
>havent played for almost entire month
>took me 3 games to rage teamkill some bottom tier retard who cant drive around a corner without blocking me and another teammate who are brawling with enemy heavies
those 100 battles include stock grind because it was my first tier higher than V in burger tree
Not him, but actually, if you compare it to the other mediums for expected damage, it loses to most besides one of the VKs and the Type 58. Might be more, I just glanced at it.
So yeah, statistically, people don't do much with it in general, which is how underperforming tanks behave.
im looking for a good tier 8 medium, similar to the cromwell (swift, high shot frequency, not too big)
centurion would be an option but i'd like a tank from another nation better
Reminder that the Sherman didn't win the war, it got carried by the T-34
T-44 or Pershing
[damage farming noises]
Thank you based Malinovka and suiscouts.
How could they have saved this game?
How could the game be improved?
Jesus Christ anon don't post shit like that, I almost had a heart attack.
The answer is
remove arty, release nice tanks like the chieftain instead of stupid shit like the jap heavies and make a better map rotation.
might have to do with the fact that this general is pretty cancerous
>browse tonk streams because
>full apcr chai sniping try hards
>intense weary ptsd faces
>occasional baddie tonker grill
this game doesn't attract any fun people does it?
Should have deleted arty ages ago.
Shouldn't have added premium ammo and consumables for credits.
Shouldn't have butchered the maps.
There should never have been tier X TDs; mediums are questionable.
Autoloaders were another mistake.
>excited because getting a new tank
>shit game after shit game
EVERY FUCKING TIME
Long campaign soon fellow EU shitters, join us if you want a chance to win an
ugly ass protoshit sameface russian heavy
The last of my premium time is running out in a week, so I'll just go back to my Steam backlog and have fun again after that. At that point maybe WG will figure out how to release a patch without taking everything back.
I grinded to tier 4 and just uninstalled that game. It's so samey and dull, people in are just fooling themselves that it's New and Exciting.

Sometimes I just fucking love tomatofest weekends, anything can happen
At this point the only reason to actually watch WoT streams is to see the mental pain and anguish the streamers gets from playing this awful game. The gameplay itself is terribly uninteresting, particularly from the high level players who don't make many mistakes.
>Victor Kislyi still think esports is wot's future
It's funny when they try to insist Team Battle mode is alive and popular, even though the only ones who use it are league teams and people trying to grind their Bulldogs and tier 8s with +0 MM.
It's really the only way I can squeeze the last little bit of enjoyment out of this game.
Having about a dozen beers and making a fool out of myself in randoms is literally the only way I play anymore
You don't. Once you've opened Pandora's Box and give a damn about your stats the fun ends. Only the 44% shitlords who spam their garage as fast as they can have any fun, because even doing one shot of damage is a great game for them.
they're too retarded to realize that having completely different formats for competitive games just doesn't work
now that stronghold are relevant and tier 8 CW exists there's no reason to touch team battles
Just fired up the game for the first time in a year, updating took like an hour but now the game won't even start.
After I hit play on the client, the screen just flashes black for a second and closes.
I don't have a clue what could be wrong.
