Additional Comments props to the STB-1 driver ahmechanic2 who played very well throughout the battle at 4: I have a tendency to be chatty during matches, and sometimes it screws me up.

It is an opportunity for us to reflect on the language and ideas that represented each year. So, take a stroll down memory lane to remember all of our past Word of the Year selections. Change It wasn’t trendy , funny, nor was it coined on Twitter , but we thought change told a real story about how our users defined Unlike in , change was no longer a campaign slogan. But, the term still held a lot of weight. Here’s an excerpt from our Word of the Year announcement in The national debate can arguably be summarized by the question: In the past two years, has there been enough change?

Tired of people spamming gold ammo (fTanks) submitted 2 years ago by gamer_wot Instead of wasting time doing useless changes on sandbox server why dont wargaming increase gold ammo twice the price and also put a limit on how much gold ammo you can carry per match and force you also to carry AP round?
Reddit 1 of 53 So often the bleeding edge of games tech, yet so often fundamentally the same underneath: It is a pure test of skill and reflex, a game about movement at least as much as it is about violence, and done right it is absolutely delightful.

· When I get home I’m gonna buy some more gold and get months of premium. My WOT time will probably drop off a lot in September if I get in the SWTOR beta (it’s supposed to open up then). Thanks, a lot of good info. What jumps out is the ammo – I haven’t used anything but the default. Plus the lowe gets favourable matchmaking compared › Forums › Software › PC Games.
The affection come from it’s exceptional armour that would be good for a heavy tank the next tier up. The Panzer II Luchs with its stubby proportions and blistering mobility is occasionally likened to a puppy. The M24 Chaffee is considered cute for similar reasons. Battle in the Rain: Maps in the Xbox version generally have several reskins taking place at different times of day and in different weather conditions. Rain is common, ranging from a light drizzle to an apocalyptic thunderstorm. It doesn’t have a significant effect on gameplay, but it looks very cool.
Better to Die than Be Killed: Some players deliberately drown their tank, hit themselves with HE splash damage or drive off tall cliffs when the battle has been lost to deny the enemy an easy kill, which means less XP and credits for the winning team. In most cases, this is less about denying XP and credits to the enemy team and more about getting back to the garage faster once the battle is clearly lost, so that another battle can be loaded into faster.
But regardless of the reason, it’s considered to be a rather dickish thing to do. More often than not, players jump to conclusions about the battle results just from seeing the tank line-ups, and players rallied by a top-tier tank will usually give their all to support it. Generally, the largest calibre or highest tier weapon available for your tank is the most preferable option, unless it’s a HE-only howitzer or has exceptionally poor handling.
Averted with high-penetration, low-damage guns like the Soviet 57mm ZiS-2 and variants, which are often smaller calibre than the biggest gun on any given chassis.
I played quite a bit of Wot 11k battles , and I recently left the game for a few reasons. I’ll explain them in details, probably too much details for the OP, but I think it’ll give non-WoT players some perspective about the game. If the tank is good and enjoyable to play say an IS3, or a good medium tank then I don’t have a problem with it.
But some tanks are absolute garbage, and you need to play battles to get XP to unlock modules and the next tank. Sometimes, garbage tanks unlock several tanks, like the Tiger P, which makes it even worse. I would have avoided them if I could, but I “need” to play through them to get to the next – hopefully better – tank in the line.
Oct 26, · Is premium or gold ammo spam the future for World of Tanks? With many tanks getting armour buffs in general, and some getting much stronger .
WoT Guru September 2, The tier 5 premium tank Matilda might not look very tough at first glance but for tier tanks it can be a real challenge when brawling with one. For a tier 5 medium tank this is very good and actually plays more like a heavy tank. While this is unavoidable since World of Tanks is a free to play online war game it can be minimized by learning those sneaky spots to shoot the Matilda and avoid those heavily armored sections. With no clear weak spots it can be difficult for tier tanks to damage.
However the majority of penetrating hits will either kill the driver or do 0 damage. Very good for crippling the Matilda mobility wise even further than it already is but not the best spot to shoot if you need to do damage to HP. This location is 75mm thick…However it is not angled and therefore much easier to penetrate than many of the other spots on the frontal hull.
I do not suggest shooting here with a gun with less than 85mm of penetration since the 75mm is only if your shell hits it at no angle. Turret ring can be hit at close range doing damage and also allowing pretty much any tank to circle the Matilda and kill it without it being able to catch up to it. These small indents are thinner than the surrounding armor and can be damaged by guns with more than 90mm of penetration with ease.
Lower hull is very small, slightly angled, and hard to damage from guns with less than 90mm of penetration. Armor above this location is also much thicker and leads to many just-missed shots bouncing. I did a few tests and while it does not add a ton of additional armor it did bounce more shots than the green areas on both sides.

Vehicles with preferential status are likely to get matched into dual or single-tier battles, where their status combined with combat parameters does more harm than good. All-around vehicle rebalances on a vehicle-by-vehicle basis to improve their statistics combined with matchmaker rule revision. The underlying problem for these vehicles is too many battles versus Tier X.
The matchmaker rules revision is designed to better the experience for them, too. All of this was done on the Supertest and we believe we got the desired result. In terms of combat effectiveness, these special Premium vehicles are now much closer to non-preferential matchmaking ones.
