I never understood the hate for that tank. Sure, it's not great but we've had far, far worse free tanks garage slots since then.


Beta awards are bound to be better than the throwaway participation-award tanks you get for happening to log on during the holidays. The Arkansas Beta is an absolute BEAST in WoWS, complete lack of AA notwithstanding.

I'm doing the daily missions for the new tier 8 premium tank (named T25 something?) which does looks pretty nice. And in contrast with the T-34-100* marathon, the missions actually seem doable (so far).

(*although I'm glad I chipped in to get that tank anyway. It's an awesome medium tank).


Leaving for Japan on the 28th. Of course they bring out a doable marathon when I have no realistic way of doing it D:.

Well, I got the first 6 or 7 days of the T25 Pilot 1 missions done without issue, but then but a bad streak and of course the missions become more involved and I just couldn't get it done having missed too many days/had too many frustrating hours of missions.

I also picked up the premium Strv S1 and even though I watched some test server reviews of this vehicle beforehand and (thought) I knew what I was getting into, I'm having a hell of a time with it. Some map it's practically useless (dense cities--much like arty) and you really need to be in the right team to fight it to good effect.

I've had 1 or 2 wins where I actually get a kill and survive, but then there are extremely frustrating results like this:

I got 8 of 13. I bought the final 5 tokens because the price still seemed fair for a decent premium tier 8 medium.
Sadly, the garage interface is fubar since the last update so I havn't played since.

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

Weird! After the new update, the game refuses to load. I get to the intro screen, then click the "play" button. The intro screen vanishes and then nothing. No WoT, no process regarding WoT running no nothing at all. Nada!

Anybody else had the same problem?

No problem here. Do you have XVM installed? If so, I'd reinstall it as it could cause some glitches after a new patch.

Nope. I have no mods at all now. Maybe I'll try to reinstall the game. I play mostly Elite Dangerous these days, but like WoT when I only want a 5 minute break.

i have that happen every once in awhile even without any mods. usually a PC restart solves it, if not deleting the WoT preferences file does.

NA people, how does 9.18 feel?

on the whole, i like it.

mostly because the arty changes put arty more in line with what i've wanted, a big splash support weapon instead of a random 'boom there goes 3/4 your health' role of the dice.

the mm changes also seems to be a good thing more bottom and mid tier emphasis means there's more tanks you can actually fight, while letting the lucky few bastards at the top of the list still feel like they won the lottery.

Uninstalling and reinstalling the game worked fine.
