Was not aware of that nerf. That's... typically WG right now, unfortunately.

Re: World of Tanks (new thread)

O-Is seem to be very popular, and what the hell, I started to go through the IJA heavy line this weekend. The first IJA heavy seems to basically be a medium tank that happens to be physically awkward and oversized. Not sure why I decided I wanted to grind towards the O-I. Pretty much everything bel...

Re: World of Tanks (new thread)

This fucking day... WG NA issued a completely blind, thoughtless, threatening statement on Kotaku. Jingles has stepped down as a community contributor: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R1AcN5andxA PointyHairedJedi has also stepped down. And unicum snowflake robot-man QuickyBaby goes on a rant about s...

Re: World of Warships

Also, apparently the Tirpitz really, really needed 10.6 km secondaries? O_o Oh WG, never change... (plz actually do change, your premium balance is hilariously bad sometimes). So now its a Bismarck with torps? Or is the Bis still the better ship for secondary build? Bismarck has one more secondary ...

Re: World of Tanks (new thread)

Ghetto edit - statements from Florian Mentl, also covered in MWJ above, have Jingles among others standing down.

Be interesting to see what the Jimquisition promised for today will cover.

Re: World of Tanks (new thread)

Derp guns are the short howitzers like the 105mm gun on the Hetzer or Sherman. They tend to have very high alpha damage with limited accuracy and slow reloads. Generally, - Fire HE as standard (or the HE round is way better than any AP choices). - Large calibre, short barrel. - Slow shell velocity....

Re: World of Tanks (new thread)

Sorry I missed you last night Venator. Got the Hetzer yesterday. Holy dog balls but the first few engines are weak for it. It feels like driving a Tier 1 tank. No worries. I didn't end up playing long. I made the mistake of unlocking the Hetzer before realizing how phenomenally bad any tank with a ...

Re: World of Tanks (new thread)

The KV-4 starts as the "KV-4-fucks-sake" and ends up as the "KV-4-tress", if my experience against them is any judge. I loathe facing ST-1s at the best of times.

Re: World of Tanks (new thread)

Out of curiosity, why are you running with the Chinese version? Is the Chinese line easier to grind or something? Mostly I just found the 110, WZ-111 1-4 and 113 more interesting than being Yet Another IS-# Player. Better explanation; the Chinese heavies are seriously mobile for their size and arma...

Re: World of Tanks (new thread)

I picked up the Thunderbolt VII and the Berlin Quartet. They are basically the only tanks I have over Tier III other than my Lee, which is the Worst Tank. Thunderbolt is a fun little tank. Rudy is a fun, reliable all-rounder to learn mid-tier gameplay on. The Cromwell Berlin is more demanding - wor...

I really dig the matchmaker improvements and artillery changes. Oh and seeing a few free high tier light tanks in the garage was nice too :D Anyone been playing the high-tier LTs? I've yet to log back in, hoping that the WZ-132 (my only LT right now) is still playable. Patch notes weren't super enc...

Actual patch bug or a nasty interaction with a modpack? I've never had UI instability after doing a mod folder clean.

Decided to take my much-maligned meta tester tank out for a spin today, and lo, I am become death, destroyer of armor. :razz: I never understood the hate for that tank.

Re: World of Tanks (new thread)

I know very little about the M8A1 outside of (a) it's squishy and made of paper and (b) it's irritatingly fast and sneaky. Had very little success with the WZ-111 1-4 so far, the useless IS-3 turret is tough to work with. The unexpected rate of fire and APCR penetration of the 100mm does work wonder...
