Having the worst run ever. My win rate is tanking hard, this marathon and the combination of whatever updates has made mm complete trash.

And I keep getting chat banned for 3 days, so I can't let these worthless shitheads know how bad they are at the game and how they irritate me so much with their lameass retarded tank play.

Mission Marathons always make the game almost unbearable. Just hordes of idiots trying to get the game over as quickly as possible. It's why almost all games in the last week have just been 15-3 stomps or just murder blobs of tanks chasing each other around the map.

This one seems in particular worse than previous Marathon missions. I really think they screwed something up with Matchmaker.

To compare, I have almost as many games, just over 500 tanks, and almost 400 Ace badges.

No, they want to make you feel lovely and make themselves feel superior. Using their stats to prove that they're actually trash makes them flip the gently caress out.

Oh I am not going to worry about it even past 10k and beyond. I pretty much accepted what the community is and will just roll with the punches.

On another note I did leave Pansy and would like to say its on my own good terms. Recently I found a new clan that does advancements and they have been a huge help on my game. So I hope with this experience moving forward I can be a little bit better than I was before.

I was not joking about [4HIM] earlier in the thread. Had another advancement with them last night and it was the usual them playing tech tree tanks and when they lose they all switched to Obj 279e and T95/FV4201 Chieftain. Those guys are insane.

I've been playing again with a friend after about 7 years of not touching the game and at least 3/4 of our matches this weekend we've been on the bottom end of the spread unless we roll out the T9/T10 tanks. Makes grinding up the new trees pretty painful.

Buglord

Console has changed it so that up to tier4 has +1/-1 MM and it actually works pretty well. Tier5/6 suffer a little as they don't get to be +2 ever but those two tiers being +2 has never been balanced due to how big the jump is at tank quality between 4 and 5. It's certainly brought tier4 tanks to life somewhat.

That's not the best example of gold-spamming, though; if it had better AP ammo, and a higher capacity, then it would be viable to take a more balanced loadout. As it stands, it's like the AMX 13 57 where you can make do with AP against plenty of the tanks you see, but can't afford to be stuck unable to pen some of the other tanks, so WG pretty much requires you to take full APCR to be competitive. It would be a different story if we were talking about, say, a Skorpion G, or anything else that absolutely does not need to spam gold to be competitive. If the WoT ammo system was like WoWS where you have unlimited ammo and just pay for what you shoot then we'd see a lot less gold spam.


Well, the important thing is that youtried.gif

I only play T10 arty but counter battery is still pretty common there. What was the tracer nerf? I took a 5 year break from the game and came back just under a year ago but it still seems as easy as it used to be.

Tracers used to appear for everyone regardless of where they were looking, so anytime you heard an arty splash, you could quickly scan around the area to see where it came from. People got so paranoid that they would actually sit outside the bushes to fire just to throw the counter battery off enough to relocate safely.

It got nerfed because modders figured out how to make tracers decay incredibly slowly and basically pinpoint the edge of the gun barrel (including tanks/TDs), which made maps like Komarin even more of a joy to play

After many weeks of kicking myself in the butt with the IS-M. I finally got through with the grind on it.

Somehow got a mastery game on it while doing 400 blocking in a Tier X game!



And the new Tier IX herself:



This tank is soooooo good if you like blocking damage. The three games I played in so far tanks just point but dont shoot at me even when angled right in front of them. Its hilarious.

You've got to know the rules before you can break 'em. Otherwise, it's no fun.

Okay, so I mentioned this a while back but never tried it, and no one else I could find really gave it a try either. I reconfigured my T26E4 Super Pershing with Turbo/Grousers/Rammer.

I had been running Turbo/Rammer/Vstab for a while, and the Turbo made a decent difference, but difference after adding grousers seemed equally substantial. It's almost astounding by comparison. I can now straight hit 40+ kph on flat ground that's dirt, not just asphalt. This really changes how I can use it, especially since it gets preferential matchmaking and never sees tier 10s.

Bote McBoteface. so what


I finished the tier 7 Polish MT (CS-44?) albeit after using several BP pieces. It was playable, but forgettable. The tier 8 (CS-53) is more comfortable, particularly after free XPing the top gun, which is respectable at-tier. The engine is badly needed, especially after mounting the top turret. It kind of feels like a slightly quicker, less-armored T-44. I probably won't keep this one either, but it's been absolutely fine to play for the several battles I put in it.

The battles I had tonight, on the other hand, were atrocious. Almost 6k damage wasn't enough to get a win in the E75. I'm more relaxed playing this game, however, after both shutting off in-game chat and now adopting Skill's "you can't win 'em all, just try to 'get some use of all this'" mindset.

Why Vstab? Tank already has great gun handling. I'm using the equipment the reward gave me but going to be replacing the turbo with optics in the future.
