Definitely should.

I've been getting a fair deal of destruction myself. Just beware of the hordes of Czech tanks.
Someday I'll care about milpoints.

Play a T1 Cunningham and hope you get a tier 1 battle against all the Czech tanks. It's not even fair for them.

I was playing my amx 40 to get some Lt tank missions done noticed none of the Czech tanks could pen me.

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

WG gives away really poor Premium tanks.  Most of them are crap, when you look at them.

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.

Ya, same here.

Although I still can't believe they came out with a czech line before a Italian one.

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.

Someday I'll care about milpoints.

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.
