I will probably never buy the obj 140 though, my goal is only to get to tier 10 which means I only need to unlock it. Therefore I can skip the last 6 million credit grind on a standard account with no prem tanks.

 

I think it's pretty pointless or would even mess the experience, since you'd probably use T-34-85 or T-34 for it and we've all seen what you can do whit these. Besides the idea was to see how damaging the stock grinds with no gold and no platoons is to unicum, right?

*400 games update!* (or actually 424 because I forgot)

 

The T-43 was almost entirely finished with the help of 3 days premium from the USSR mission. The last 15-20k with standard account again were no problem either. Somehow I performed really well in this tank despite the awful gun.

Bought the T-44 and it's still stock. 144 pen with 2,9 aim time is not exactly ... fun in tier 8-10 MM. Also I can't mount 3 pieces of equipment since I'm using torsion bars to be able to mount the turret and gun before getting tracks.

Almost have the turret unlocked now but then there's another 16k left to the second gun which is not exactly amazing either... then the third gun.

After that I'll go for tracks so I can switch out the torsion bars and following that comes the engine upgrades.

 

Basically this will take a loooong time.

 

My WR has been severely punished by the T-44 and WN8 is also dropping from 3200 overall where I finished the T-43, but really how much do you expect to carry at this tier with 144 pen? It's impossible to affect the match much.

 

Here are the values of my recent tanks played.

 

And service record

 

 

And all tanks played

 

Spoiler

 

Here you can see that although I have only 48% WR on the stock T-44 (I lost all my 8 first games in a row so still recovering) I manage to get over 1300 average damage. Sure, that pretty much matches my tier 6 T-34-85 at the moment but it's with 144 pen in tier 8-10 so I'm still somewhat impressed with myself.

We'll see what happens to these numbers once I finally get some modules unlocked...

Until then I will continue to suffer.

 

I feel your pain with the t-44 sadly i gave up in frustration with that tank:(

I am watching the stream currently, and I have to say, you really use your minimap to your advantage when you have crippled yourself of all the other advantages, great job!:great:

*500 games update*

 

I have finally managed to grind out the top gun on the T-44! (Oh god, NEVER again)

 

With the stock tank and 144 pen I finished with 54% WR, just over 1200 average damage and 1900 WN8 in the tank after about 60 battles.

The second gun was an improvement with 175 pen but still the hideous 2,9sec aiming time which stopped my performance from improving significantly. Now that I have the top gun however they're starting to point up significantly as you will see in the screenshot.

 

I also just unlocked the tracks which means the tank can finally turn too! That's always helpful. Next up is the second engine for more horsepower but I'll probably skip the last engine and go for the T-54, we'll see.

 

The highest point for my WN8 on RetardedLion so far remains at 3200 overall. By the time I finished the stock T-44 grind it was down at about 2920 from where it is now again rising rather rapidly.

 

Overall WN8

 

 

T-44 stats. Average damage still looks low because of the many stock games but has gone up 200 points in the last 30 games. WR is going through the sky... compared to previously anyway.



Service record

cool experiment, how ever the only way to actually prove that the theory "if only I had premium account, if only I shot premium rounds, if only I had good crews, if only I didn't play stock tanks, if only I skipped tanks, if only I played OP tanks, if only I used mods, if only I platooned ... I'd be unicum too" wrong.

 

is by geting a total noob, with utter crapstats, premium, as many prem rounds as he wants, only play op tanks and all the mods available, full platoon all the time and watch him fail at becoming unicum ...

 

(out of a scientific point of view that is.)

There are enough of those running around on the servers. Just wait for the next T34 with full APCR. :trollface:

What are your first and second choice of perks for your crews during this experiment?

Repairs. retrained commander for 6th sense and loader for safe stowage. After that I'm not so sure. maybe camo or minor skills like offroad driving/ snapshot etc.

Mhm, not realy a surprise. Most long time players can rapetrain through low tiers. t6+ is far more intersting imo. good job with 43 and 44.

1340 exp T-44 ace

 

Took me 103 games to ace the T-44, that's ... not good but I'll blame the grind.

As previously mentioned I played the T-44 stock at 1900 WN8.

 

So how does it perform now that the modules are unlocked? Finally got tracks and the second engine yesterday. Will probably skip the last engine...

Tried playing WoT at night... bad idea. 45-46% WR platoons everywhere. Lost 9 games in a row while being top 3 in all but 1.

Don't know, it always seems I lose at night though. Maybe I'm just tired.

you was not alone, so may good and great players throwing battles away i found so it would not easy to get a good battle where the team would work together.

 

38% winrate for last night for me and i will be glad when the wz111 missions are over as i blame that for the lack of team play from players that should know how to play the game.

I'd say it's reasonable to thing that it's just because you are tired, based on my own experience.

 

While the general player quality seems to be low (should make it much easier to win, contrary to popular belief), I am also too tired myself to make good decisions. I have tried watching some replays of myself playing late nights because at the time I didn't know why I kept losing all games (for science!), and really...I do some top retarded stuff when I am tired.

wow, that's one of the highest base experience i've ever seen on a non-scout tank. in which tank did you do it? must have been a monster game that one. do you have a replay maybe, i'd love to watch it?

 

GJ btw, keep it up!

We have one guy like that on the polish forums. Well almost. He doesn't have top crews because he skips tanks a lot and he never platoons but he only goes for OP tanks and fires only gold on them. 44% WR. He even fired pure gold on the old obj268 before it was nerfed. Same for waffle. Didn't help him, still complained about it (not a troll acount with thousands of battles)

Nighttime is ridiculously unbalanced to play solo. Unicum and Unibob toons among a sea of mainly bots.

I believe it's because he 3 days of premium.

I'm not a very gifted player, but even I have more than that: 2,854 in my AMX 50 100.

In my T29 I have 2,484.

It's not very special.

It's not to say that OP isn't a superb player, but he can make much more experience in a game, given enough chances (games).

 

If it indeed is base exp, I retract my previous statement. Then it is special, especially given the low amount of games :)
