Hello everyone,

 

I recently got into WoT and have been playing every night the last two weeks'ish. It's great fun! I have a lot to learn but I am having tons of fun with my friends. I am currently having a hard time picking a Type to play since I enjoy the support of medium/light but also the kickassiness of Heavy/Tank-Destroyer..

 

ANYWHO:

I saw this wallpaper, and was wondering what tank it was - since it looks so frkn BADASS (Can anyone of you identify it?) - hope this is the right place to ask:

It is Maus, just rendered from a poor angle.

No, really, 700 battles account on ebay?

 

Maybe, just maybe, he's just a new player?

 

I mean you can just walk in and sign up, new player registration is still not closed.

Looks like a IS-7 to me.

True and I am probably wrong (in which case never mind me)
but then why is his forum registration set on 2013?

I created the account some time ago and never bothered starting to play. Just got into it recently. :-)

I don't understand why people are bashing him here. IS-7 in WoT does not have track links on its upper plate although it's a HD tank. Although my first instinct was also that this is an IS-7 it doesn't look like anything like the IS-7 of this game with those track links.

Yes, the track links threw me off at first too, even though otherwise turret shape and other details suggested IS-7 right away. There's been talk of buffing IS-7, could it also mean remodeling?...:unsure:

 

EDIT: Ah, no such luck. It seems to be an old page so it's just some artistic license kind of thing, it seems (too bad actually, it looks good IMO):

It's definitely an IS7, but people are correct there are no track links on the hull of an IS7.

It's not the forum registration date, it's the date when the wargaming.net account was created.

In theory he could have been playing some other WG game all these years.

 

For instance, my date (2014-08-19) is the day I started playing Blitz, first time I played on PC was about a month later (but that ended quickly due to crappy PC couldn't handle it)

It's the new IS-7 inspired premium heavy on tier 6.
Better armor than IS-7 because why not....130mm with 258 mm pen and 490 alpha because rasha...etc.

Wouldn't be surprised if it suddenly got two layers of spare track links on the LFP for balancing reasons. :trollface:

Or you bought the account on eBay and actually don't have a clue

In the case of the second option it's an is7

If the first case is true then 0/10 won't read your posts again.

 

Can you supply a list of rules so that people can know how to avoid you attacking them?

 

Or, you could answer a simple question.
