WoT or World of Tanks
« on: October 08, 2015, 13:46:48 »
 ;D

Speaking of WOT, is there no thread on that? I would have imagined there is a bigger player base on that game than WoWS that only recently came out.

Answer to that one, is that several, or more, members are playing WoT and have communicated via PM, rather than via a Thread.......So here goes.

I play the XBox version off and on, prefer arty and td.  Always fun to listen to others complain how much they hate arty and then a second later begging for help.

Highest in each category are:

Level 9 Arty - GW Tiger
Level 8 TD - JagdPanther and AT15 (until I get enough to buy next level)
Level 9 Heavy - IS-8
Level 5 Medium - M7, Ram, Chi-Nu
Level 6 Light - T21

Ha, a WoT thread. Saw this from WoS. haven't played WoS, but in WoT I pretty much have every tank, and been in the best NA clan until I stopped playing sometimes at the beginning of the year (-G-). I also have about 350.000 gold in the account from all the tourneys I have done
Will search you guys out when I feel like starting again.

I've been playing for 4 years...I have a selection of tanks, my preference is the Arty lines.

I've got the T-92, and the BC-155/58 as Tier 10 Arty, with a smattering of other tanks too.

I have over 250 tanks and have been playing for five years or so.  The amount of complete morons flooding the game, and WG refusal to seriously make MM more even is really turning me off the game.  This morning 8 matches with 6 being under 40% chance to win really sucks.  Having top tier players all on one team and "Tomatoes" and "Pumpkins" on the other team really doesn't make for good game play.  Although, stats really do lie in WoT.   I have seen so many really bad players from clans like Relic, Otter other top Tier clans.  I guess their good stats come from somewhere other than Pubs.  I, and many others, have found that if you have members from one of the SA clans on your team, they will more often than not lead to DEFEAT very quickly.

George, never trust someone's WN8 at face value. Very easy to pad it by playing certain tanks (e25, tier 10 ru meds) for a high percentage of battles, but be awful in a heavy tank.

Oh how I know this.  I saw one guy with something like 32K games and a "Purple" player in a Tier V match.  We loss.  I looked at his stats afterward, around 21K games in one Tier 3 tank, around 10K in another Tier 3 tank, and no tanks above Tier 5.  Of course, you don't find that out at the start of the match.   ;D

As a player if lightly armored french heavy tanks, I can honestly say arty is the Bain of my existence.

Click battle

Wait for countdown

2 minutes into match.

Garage after arty 1 shots me.

That said, the amx 50 100 is great for late game arty hunts.

Nobody would mind XVM as much if arty wasn't so game-breaking. Alpha creep really wrecked a lot of the gameplay.

I've been playing for awhile now (over 6,000 games) and I find I play in fits and starts. I'm a big fan of the German heavy line and the Soviet tanks but, like everyone else, hate the arty. Hard for me to say that... I'm Herpeseus in game.

I've been playing the mobile version, and it seems like quite a bit of fun. Have any of you heard of the new tank MMO game "Armored Warfare"? It has the same mechanics of WoT but with modern day armour and artillery.

LOL

by the posts it is obvious that most here don't like me in WOT as I mostly use arty.  Really is satisfying to see a gang up on one of your team mates suddenly fall apart as you reach out and destroy the enemy.

gotta say though one of my favourite matches was one in which my teammate spent the entire game ranting how useless I was while crying for me to save him.  He even thanked another guy for saving him when I destroyed the tank kicking his butt.  I was top player in the match, had 5 kills including 2 that was slamming him and he was at the bottom for the team with barely any damage caused.

Challenging is resorting to using your arty as TD cause no one stuck around to protect you.  My best is 3 kills.  You have to aim totally on your own, no aim assist.

arty is a lot harder than it looks. Part of the problem is that people use the same spots and you can literally drop one there with a reasonable chance of hitting something. Mind you WOT maps are such that you have very limited options, generally 3 routes to take or defend. Limited areas with cover or concealment, so it's not hard for arty to zero in on the single bush on a ridgeline that a scout would use.

They definitely get more deadly around tier 7 and 8 though.

The only Czech tanks worth it are the Tier 9 maybe 10. The rest of the line with the exception of maybe the tier 6 autoloader are meh at best. Currently grinding out Rampage for the T-22 and over halfway there.

Tier 10 is going to be an alternative to the BC 25t when camo isn't a factor. The tier 9 is also incredibly deadly, with some of the best players pulling 8.5k damage in games with it.

Actually the 9 is seeing more use in WGLNA esports league. Brining two is basically the same as a BC and gives you the flexibility to bring a more armoured heavy.

Apparently players on the RU and EU servers tried gaming the system a bit hard to get a free tank and now WG is banning and hauling back the freebie and naming names.

That was for the T-22, and it wasn't just those servers, lots of bans on NA too. I'm not sure what WG expected, the missions were almost impossible to complete without rigging before they were changed.

Not really that many bans on NA. A few unlucky guys who got caught with replay evidence got 10 day temp bans but got to keep the tank.

As for the T22, its over hyped. Its really long which causes problems and gets ammo racked worse then the AX or 7/1. The speed is nice and the armour is decent when you do the Soviet face hug but the video makes it out to be something much better then it is.

Soviet Tier 10's are ranked 907>62a>T22>140>430 The 907 is far more OP then the T22

907 has a glass ammo rack. There's a reason the T-22 is being used over every other Soviet medium in WGLNA, and that's the ability to bounce shots.

None of the tanks are OP, rather they have various benefits that fit certain situations.

As for the rigging, those that got temp bans, lost the tank and had to redo the missions. I believe rigging was so rampant on EU vs RU server, that they removed the ability to earn the tank again, ever, from certain players. The missions are far more attainable now anyway, WG set themselves up for failure with how hard they were to start with.

The T22's rack is just as bad as the 907 if not worse. T22 is being used because it's new and the flavour of the month. The ability to bounce shots is vastly overrated and the 62a is better in most situations where you would be trying to bounce. The T22 is good a reverse side scraping but reverse side scraping is so situational its basically rendered useless 99% of the time.
I speak from exprience when I say it is a good tank, I avg around 2600 dmg, but most good games where I'm not yolo'd and arty focused or Tk'd I do around 3000 minimum usually closer to 4000 dmg

Warpack and other 'Cheats' that are so prevalent on WoT are what are turning me off the game.  That and WG still denying that their MM has no problems.

Personally I don't find warpack to be as prevalent as people think it is, besides warpack there really aren't any other "cheats" a player can use unless they can hack into the WG servers to fix things. I still prefer WoT to AW and WT.

Personally I don't find warpack to be as prevalent as people think it is, besides warpack there really aren't any other "cheats" a player can use unless they can hack into the WG servers to fix things. I still prefer WoT to AW and WT.
Ya, same here.

Although I still can't believe they came out with a czech line before a Italian one.
Someday I'll care about milpoints.

I like the Czech line and I know it has been in the works for a long time. I think the next tree they are adding is the Swedish one from what Silent Stalker has said on his blog and it is due this year.

Problem with the Italian line is at least with the medium line ther tier 6/7 are paper panzers, and the 8/9/10 are basically just reskined tanks the pershing, patton and leopard.

It's not like they didn't already do that with the Chinese line. Just reskined Russian tanks.

As for the Czech and now maybe swedish line, how many of these tanks saw action?

Italian tanks, which crappy(which can be addressed via tiering ), fought extensively in North Africa.

Wapack stopped existing a while ago, now there are just some of the legacy mods left over that are circulating around.

I've been a part of the high-end competitive community for a few years now, and the "warpack" use is greatly overstated. A lot don't use any mods anymore as WGLNA requires vanilla client. I'll get 3-4 "mod" accusations a day, and I haven't run a single mod in 2 years.

MM, on the other hand, is a difficult beast to fix. If you limit to skill-based, the top 1% will have massive queues as there are only so many of them around to play with. It might work with a larger server population, but USW has about 5k people in primetime. Biggest change they could make is hard code out fail platoons, and actively stop bots. Easy to see who is botting with 200 battles played and 40% winrate for the day.

I've started slowly weening myself off mods in preparation for moving into either bronze or silver league next season. It has not been easy.

I've rotated back into my WoT addiction.  One thing I need to improve on is learning where to aim at certain tanks.  I used the mod that identifies each component on tanks (ammo, engine, etc..) for a few days a few years ago, but I hated how it made the game feel.

I'm currently grinding down the Czech line and I feel I would be more effective throwing ball peen hammers at the front of a Maus then using the tier 4 gun on a Czech medium.

Czech line gets better at 6, worse at 8, glorious at 9/10.
