stupid sexy Erwin edition
>have like 30 tanks
>only ever play these 3 ones
Have you found your way to have fun in this game yet, /wotg/?
no idea where ERP stuff is coming from, most likely some kind of a mental disorder and seeing things on your side, but if you want a dead general instead then maybe you should fuck off and not post in it desu
>take a look at any 4chan general or game forum older than a month to see what I mean
FTFY. The only single-game generals that tend to avoid descending into 100% shitposting and faggotry are ones that cover a genre rather than specific games, and thus actually have new things to talk about on a regular basis.
I will genuinely be disappointed if he keeps his job for another 6 months. Unless the Russians love him, I'm pretty sure the majority of the other servers hate his guts at this point.
>I will genuinely be disappointed if he keeps his job for another 6 months
i'm leaning more towards surprised than disappointed
let's see what Rita has to say
>*Sigh...* I feel for Storm sometimes...
either he has decision-making authority and is responsible for the situation, or he's drawing a wage to be the lightning rod / scapegoat. in either case he can suck it.
i used to think that WG would get either the EU or NA office to do some Q&A thing now that they're set up and staffed and all.
this was back in like 2012 and now it's almost 2016 and it's just stupid at this point.
>- Confirmed: Chieftain will not replace FV215b - "there are other plans"
either WG has a major ace up their sleeves or they're doing something really stupid here
after RUBICON i know which i'm betting on
it's a fantastic T6 med gun. someone should attach it to a tank that isn't shit. again.
EU and NA only seem to translate occasional serious Q&A sessions. RU office almost certainly told them not to post the daily stuff since SerB/Storm insulting the playerbase and dismissing legitimate questions probably isn't good PR over here.
>he's drawing a wage to be the lightning rod / scapegoat
I'm actually leaning towards this at this point.
Tried it on the test server, it's not bad. If it ends up being a normal in-game tank eligible for 30% discounts I could go for it.
>I'm actually leaning towards this at this point.
well i mean it's certainly a bit of column a and a bit of column b, the question is what the proportions are
it was him that took over as design lead after SerB got promoted, right?
The T 40 is actually straight up superior to the 3001P statistically. Way better terrain resistance, better accuracy, 200 pen HEAT premium ammo. All you lose is some depression (6 vs 8) and turret armour that wasn't going to save you because of the huge cupola.
the 30P has a serious mantlet and trying to ignore that is being unfair to a tank that really needs all the kindness it can get (those fucking tracks...)
>200 pen HEAT
according to the stats on gamemodels3d the T 40 has the same accuracy, worse aim time, and 5 degrees of depression
better mobility and very slightly better gun dispersion on the move
Super conq will replace 215b and WG will produce a new chieftain/mbt heavy line (with p5 prototype, vickers mbt etc.)
I'm guessing the devs were excited about their new model and showed it off, then the execs told them to back the fuck off until they can come up with a better money milking scheme for it
>tfw your recent is worse than overall
he's just misunderstood.
and will go down as a martyr.
Hope you're not NA then. This is the only option.
The only tank girl I recognize is Yukari
>worst player in wot history
>so bad so bad so bad so bad
Can't stop listening to those two, you can hear how he almost loses his mind because he's raging so hard.
it wasn't even a fielded conqueror
just 30-40mm spaced armor welded to the turret for ballistic testing purposes
which might be pretty good if current 215b gun handling characteristics are kept intact
>M48 spamming HEAT at tier 8s and doing 0 damage a bunch of time
>tell him he's a tard since he already has high pen APCR by default
>"this one has higher pen, I just want to use the best ammo"
WG should put some explanation of the pros/cons for each shell type in game
I don't understand, all of my crew members have brothers in arms at 100% and they are 100% themselves, yet I don't get the bonus on my wft auf pz IV. Also the skill looks greyed out, compared to my E75 where the skill is bright white under the names of the crew members. Wtf?
The goldspam meta is getting pretty ridiculous, at least on NA. It used to be only desperate greenshitters, purples, and some reds that shot all gold, now pretty much half the playerbase regardless of stats is slinging APCR or HEAT, especially out of things like t9 TDs or t10 meds that don't need it.
>13 tanks spotted in the first 30 seconds
>light up the enemy team constantly
>team is too fucking dumb to click the red tanks
>tfw I got 7,000 spotting damage for the 5,000 mission on that map
t. some drunk slav in charge of the MM
is grinding the stock cromwell worth this fucking shit?
It's one of the better T6's.
Despite what people say about the gun handling, if you take your time to stop and aim for the long range shots, then it's no different than other mediums of the tier. If not more accurate.
>tfw when you are a gold spamming scrub
>tfw when there are still people playing this game without spamming gold even though they are just fodder for gold spammers
it's like they want to get abused lel
what if everyone stops playing heavies and goes for mobility and then what do you do on city maps where your mobility and camo won't help shit?
so you are basically just everyones bitch so they can fire away with premium ammo
there is barely anything that thing can't pen anyway lel
yeah I get plenty of gold spammers that shoot at my paper armor too
>what if everyone stops playing heavies and goes for mobility and then what do you do on city maps where your mobility and camo won't help shit?
Then nobody would go to the city unless you are a heavy medium.
Why don't you use xTE yet? It's only the most accurate of all rating systems.
What's you rarest tank?
M4A2E4, Pz. IV Hydro, and the Type I guess
>a shitter keeps grinding into me from behind and keeps making me lose the perfect shot
>he shoots me in the back of the turret
>i drive behind him and 2 shot the fuck out of the moron
>booted out of the match
>HURRR DURRR your account has been suspended
> "World of Tanks is a giant iron machine like Maus that goes forward no matter what"
>- The Russian streamers and youtubers represent the "voice of the people" and WG is listening to them, that is why they invited all the top videomakers to Cyprus
someone dig up the dozens of times Storm dismissed them as nothing but a bunch of malcontents, tia
it's, uh, an even slower firefly?
Should the remaining players on NA do Clan Wars one last time?
At least we don't live in the past
Armored Warfare is the better game despite being programmed by a few US nerds while WG is a multi billion dollar company.
Shame it will go pay2win so fucking hard, once they reach the required players.
>Outdated client. Please update
Oh shit, we Rubicon now?
9.12 PT started yesterday so hardly
it's like they don't want money
>watch blizzcon stream

>Viktor Kislyi thinks that it's possible that World of Tanks will live forever like other great games like World of Warcraft and League of Legends
the most profitable demographic for internet tank games is 35-45 year old working stiffs.
even in NA and EU that means guys sitting on a 3 year old Lenovo with Norton sucking up half the system's resources
>168.9 million - Russian Server
>70.0 million - European server

>2.4 million - Sea Server
It's okay eurokeks are used to having bundles shoved up their ass anyway.
whoever designed the M3 Lee deserves to be resurrected, lapidated, beaten to death, castrated, skinned alive and covered in salt and then set on fire.
having to grind 14k xp twice to access both the T1 line and the Sherman line.
i fucking refuse to grind this piece of dog shit.
>Put off buying a KV-2 for 18K battles because they perform so poorly when I see them in pub matches
>Buy one on sale because why not
>Now this is Stalingradracing.jpg
I admit, I was wrong. This is beyond broken. Everything your tier pops like a balloon in front of you and I'm hitting Super Pershings for 400/shot
you should have played it back when it had good gold ammo
How come this general is so shy of tertiary discussion? There's almost no talk about history or any historical use of tanks, even though the tanks in game stretch from WW1 to the cold war, and there's little to no GuP posting compared to Warship's boatshitposting.
what would this game look like if Wargaming had region locked South America to their own server when the game was released?
let's just not make a new thread when this one ends.
let it rest in final slumber.
>stare at the garage for a while
I'm the only one that does it. I'm pretty sure.
Average WN8 and WR would be up several points, but at the cost of chopping the population in half.
GuP girls are kawaii but shipgirls are on the next level
which panzer would you vor?
but anime is WG-approved
reminder that Otto Carius is no more
Great tank, I could play it all day.
Don't trust screenshots
That's not me
Now that no one wants to play scout, and there's rarely a scout when you need one, should I be scouting or learning how to live without them?
>BIG LIVE SPECTACLE PACIFIC RUMBLE BATTLE OF THE NATIONS
>gf wants to watch Frozen for the 12th time
>can't, too busy trying to get back from a loss streak
>highest win chance today was 46%
I'm a fucking paying customer, WG. I DEMAND better service.
>not scouting on any maps
I've not played in years, is scouting dead?
there are too many undulations in the terrain now so any tank can effectively negate scouting assuming they aren't retarded, on top of corridorfication in map design
only scouting is worth shit left is phorovkha, malinovka, and murovanka.
So what the fuck do I do for fun now scouting is dead?
>open maps, bottom tier, shot in every direction, ded
>corridor maps aplenty, top tier, bounces galore
>select any LT mission
>select any "kill X" mission
>half the enemy team is X
My garage sucks, other than this sexy sweetness I was only stupid enough to buy the JT88, and power creep rendered my sexy sweetness all wrinkly and sexy stinky.
I'm way out of date and doing horribly because all the maps are fucked, can you fuckers produce some handy-dandy maps, or are you too scared reddit might steal your 1337 takticz again?
First time I made you do this awesome and pointless bollocks, we made some shitty arse OC.
And then, OMFG, one of you cunts posted our shit to reddit, and our glorious OC was STOLEN!!!
And the fucking nancies you are, you resolved to never make any more of this stuff, am I reading these events wrong?
I only carry enough silver rounds to overcome the normalization disadvantage of HEAT and such, I'm done grinding. I've been checking in during specials and selling tanks, ammo and modules for discounted stuff, I'm not sure what the game still has to offer once you're bored of the economy.
Bought the 4502 back after giving up on my Maus quest, it's pretty fucking sweet for the time being.
Are there maps with any other number of lanes?
I played on a city map that was very confusing, everyone cowered on the open side of the road. I don't know the old maps OR the new maps, so I don;t have a starting point, pick holes in the ones I've posted for fun?
So Day One of KV-2 fuckery ends with a 2100 WN8, about 1100dmg and two kills per game...and a 38% WR.
I play it as a cautious brawler Am I doing something wrong? I was like 70% in scouts yesterday.
there's also higher-res ones in \res\packages\[mapname].pkg\spaces\[mapname]\mmap.dds
it's fucking amateurish, as soon as something happens he goes FULL CRUISE CONTROL TO HIDE THE FACT THAT HE DOESN'T HAVE ANYTHING PARTICULAR TO SAY ABOUT WHAT'S HAPPENING BUT YOU SHOULD BE TOTALLY HYPED UP
fuckers need to watch some real sports to see how actual pros do it (protip: round 1 ain't something to shout over)
anime saves the thread :3
>both teams have 3+ arta
>by the end of the game its arta vs arta and a random red shitter who camped base all game
Today I had to fight 5 SPGs in a tier 8 game in my E8. That whole class of tanks should be removed. Completely kills the game.
warned you about porsche bro
told you dog
I wanted to download the game again, unistalled it at 50%.
Did they nerf SPGs? They make the game completely unplayable. The game was so much better when SPG nerf happened but it soon became as shit as before.
it's not nearly as bad as the Challenger or some other shit tanks, I'm even having fun sometimes
but compared to the Tiger H it has a stronger front hull (ish) and weaker literally everything else, that's a bit stupid
This challenge is almost impossible for anybody with less than 10k battles. All my crews are below 100% and I managed to finish the quest once by luck after 3 hours of playing.
Exactly my problem.
If I am not aggressive enough, I won't get kills.
However, if I am, I get the kills but usually also get swarmed by enemies.
Maybe I should have played arty instead of heavies.
just give it to me, senpai, no lube
"we are not sure yet" was the answer to every question on the stream.
only questions that got real answer were the ones everyone already knew the answer of like that FV4202 mission is coming in january and you need Action X to complete it
although to be honest that's not really all that impressive
i know that feel, anon
they were fun but the map was did not live up to it's potential
>Storm has a list of WoT issues that is 10 pages long and and is actively used for development planning, it has both issues and proposed solution
>this list was collected based on direct feedback of Russian players
No bias in this game Torvish!
>- According to Storm, rebalancing gold shells to make more penetration but less damage wouldn't help the gold ammo situation anyway since they'd still penetrate and the players would still use them even with reduced damage.
THEN WHY THE FUCK NOT JUST DO IT.
OH WAIT, IT WOULD ACTUALLY BALANCE THE GAME!
They're hellbent on destroying their own game. I've never seen someone do this so thoroughly.
Let's say gold shell damage is halved. Yeah, you now buy twice as many gold shells. You still spam gold shells, but your DPM is effectively halved.
How does the marketing team NOT see that as net profit?
>WoT issues list is ten pages long
>critical hits doing zero damage
>RNG being intolerable
>arty still existing
>detracking bug still stops the tank
>CW 2.0 is shit
>competitive tier 8 is shit
That's not 10 pages.
>which ones do you like?
Scorpion, SU-122-44, fiddy-tee, spersh
I also have a couple of the ones everybody keeps raving about like the Cromwell B and the E25 but I really dislike them.
>Shitter in a Jap memebox tank sends me an angry PM when I outplay him in a 13 75

>Any information on how it will be implemented? Some players are afraid it will become a CW reward.

WG confirmed desperate to stop the clan wars stagnation.
>things the piger does better than the Tiger H
200mm armor on the 2 upper front plates
no front transmission
>things the Tiger H does better than the piger
when add this all up, the weakspots on the piger are only a small problem desu
how to get high caliber in 2 clicks with one neat little trick
>for the effort
It's not like heavies are much harder than spg's anyways. The game isn't mechanical they're all pretty much the same. Are TD's harder than SPG because they have to click the enemy tanks a few more times?
>everything I disagree with is bait meme
Every last class in this game does not require any skill, it's all about deciding what to do. Anyone who thinks any of these classes require skill save for MAYBE lights is an idiot. Arty isn't an exception, heavies aren't an exception, TD's aren't an exception.
I wish we could get another free tonk from this setting the table mission.
