Finally have the object 260

The tank is alot of fun, probably not as good as the Chinese heavy tanks as its dpm is still pretty crapand armour only works when people dont press 2 key.

 

The missions have been alot of fun and a good addition to the game

When they 1st came out the highest tier tank I had was tier 8 (tiger 2) and I was happy to keep playing lower tiers as i didnt like tiers 8+

The missions forced me to start playing higher tiers and then loved tier 8 games and later on learnt to like tier 10

I also never played light tanks but when the missions came out i decided to do the LT missions instead of Arty and light tanks are now my favourite class

 

The only thing I really dont like is that I feel I am now forced to play arty to get the remaining 4 girls.

 

However I am now starting to wonder about the state of the game

1st off, there really does not seem much end game.

I have most of the tanks I want and really cant be bothered trying to grind for the remaining tanks, especially if i have to play low tiers. All i seem to be doing is playing the same 4-5 tanks over and over again on the same maps which gets really boring really quick.

 

2nd tier 8 MM is now fucked.

Tier 8 until recently was my favourite tier, but now having to fight tier 10 tanks over and over again is horrible. Most of the games are decided by what team has the best tier 10 tanks and (more likely) what team has the best tier 10 players.

Now I pretty much only play tier 10...but I normally dont have a premium account and tier 10 is expensive...which means I have to play tier 8 premiums...which would be fine, except in some games I end up loosing money because I need to press the 2 key to pen the enemy tanks. I mean Last game I am in a lowe vs a type 4, I aim at his weakpoint and dont pen, so i press 2 and oh look, I pen. great, except I ended up loosing 1000 credits because I need to spam gold at the [edited]weakpoint.

Honestly, tier 8 tanks are now just horrible to play

 

3rd Arty Stun

Now arty is much better than the utter BS it was before, but then anything would have been better than what it was.

Having 1 arty per team is not too bad, but as soon as you get 2 or 3 it becomes near unplayable  Being perma stunned while loosing 200-400 health every 20 seconds is not fun. 

And what is even more annoying is the crew it constantly kills. Arty shell lands half way across the map from you, oh that your gunner gone.....and even more annoying than that is you dont know he is dead until after the stun has gone. So you are forced to use your med kit as soon as you are stunned, realising that no crew member was killed and then 2 seconds after you have used your med kit, boom the next arty shell lands 500m for your tank, stunning you and killing you loader or something.

 

4th is the BS fake tanks

Or more specifically the type 4 and 5.

Why on earth are any of these tanks in the game. Having 1 or 2 (or even 3) paper tanks in a line is ok...but they are all fake tanks.

And they break the game. I saw a fight between the tier 10 VK and a type 5, the type 5 just aimed at the most heavily armoured part of the VK and did 650 damage with his 1st shot then did 800 damage with his 2nd and then killed him with the 3rd. The VK meanwhile has to actually aim his shots and only does 560 damage....IF he pens.

I mean why would you ever play a E100 over a type 5?

 

 

5th is weakpoints and gold ammo

Make Weak points actual Weak points. If i bother to aim my shots at weakpoints then i should be rewarded with damage. Right now i need to load gold to go through the weakpoint, in which case, why am I aiming at the weakpoint when I could just auto aim at it.

And fix gold ammo.Tier 10 is a joke of just gold spam. As I said have 4M credits and no tanks I really want. It does not bother me if I lose 40-80k a game. So why should i ever fire standard ammo over gold ammo? Clearly APCR and HEAT should have a 20-30% damage reduction over standard rounds.

If you make weakpoints weak then people who actually bother to aim there shots will be rewarded over people who just spam gold. It would also actually make armour useful.

 

 

Oh and lastly is the maps

For the love of god, fix the maps that are already in the game (mountain pass, swamp, erlnburgh, etc)

Put in the old maps (I bet most people dont care too much about the balance of these maps as any sort of balance in this game went out the window a loooooooooong time ago)

And put in more new maps.

Playing the same few maps over and over and over again is so boring, especially because alot of the maps are just horrible to play on (mines at tier 10 for example)

GZ bro. I don't do Obj 260 missions intentionally because I care about my mental health. Sometimes I got luck and finish some, but it's always accident. WoT feels much better when I don't focus on missions.

Some points i agree with.

 

For instance gold ammo and armor. I also think this is total [edited]in the game, it happens at every tier, not just T10 (that being said, WoT console does have different permium shells, they have extra pen, but lower damage, would be nice to see this introduced to WoT PC too)

Fake tanks i don't have an issue with, provided they aren't ridiculosly overpowered like the Type4/5 are, make the weakpoints actual weakpoints (the super test nerf to the Type 4/5 is negligable)

Arty, i don't have a problem with, same goes for the T8 MM same goes for the maps, but i've been away from the game for a while

Mines at tier 10... Check

Type 5 Heavy... Check

 

WG keep up the great work.

 

 

Please note that sarcasm might be a case.

OP, you said almost the same things that I had in my mind. Very well said. Kind of wondering at the moment "what to do now, have the personal missions done and don't really feel like grinding"... Basically I mostly play alone and even if every game was not "get the mission done!" those missions were a huge part why I have kept playing to this day.

 

I don't feel the same about the MM. I mean that in a tier 8 tank "tier X" game includes 3 tier tens. And half are tier eights. The problem is  that many tier 8 tanks aren't that good even against other tier eight tanks thanks to the WG balancing department. I guess I am a little bit of a sadist, but in my head the MM makes me try harder when there are less "easy low tier games" with my tier 8 tanks and I like to think trying harder makes me better in a long run.

 

Don't also agree with arties, but for me, getting permastunned  every time there is more than 1 arty in the game sounds a lot like people before who got one shot by arties constantly...

 

But I do want more personal missions or marathons or something that keeps a solo player like me in the game.

missions are so damn stupid, you either need to super duper good or need lots of luck.

80% of them are purely rng. 

 

sirfoch recently got his 260

You forgot that you can do the missions also if you have no life and do them as long as it takes. No rng or skill needed. That is how I got them done :)

I much prefer to do the missions 'accidentally', if I get one done hurrah, but otherwise there are too many that go against the principle of helping the team win, turning battles into stat farming to the exclusion of all else.

This is pretty much how i did most of the missions

The only ones I really tried to do was LT15, HT6 and HT15, the rest just happened by accident.

I don't focus on the missions ( much ) but when I do I wonder how on earth some Russians were able to get 260 in the very first days after the missions came. I remember reading somewhere  ( probably For The Record blog R.I.P. ).

Object 260 is also a fake tank...

 

But yeah Type 4 and 5 are just retarded.

Gratz.

 

As others have said above, I have the missions turned on, and it's always a pleasant surprise when one pops up completed. The only one I have actually had to think about so far was TD 15 for the T55a, so I'll just see how the Object 260 missions fall.

I'm still finishing the T-55A missions, I'm stuck on a few. 

 

No offense, but it makes me feel good that someone of seemingly similar skill level as me got the 260. :) I want to get one as well. Been trying to ram an enemy to death in my Defender for ages but hasn't worked yet.. I'll probably play my IS-7 and downhill yolo-ram a light tank to death for that one.

KV-5 is the tank of choice for the ramming mission.
