In ranked battles Beta I was in division 1 and on track to get top bond prize, graphics card died and dropped to division 2. boo hoo

In the next ranked battles I got tired of usless oranges taking skill compensator bunker tanks and spamming gold cuz lol jpze100 420 pen. Got tired of ''skilled'' battles becoming a case of which team had the bigger stick and more of them.

 

TL: DR. I grinded just under 2k bonds to get enough for improved equipment. I now sit at the 5000 and can make a decision but I don't know what to get. My clan members said vents but I'm thinking improved medium calibre rammer so that I can boost the DPM. I want to use it on the 430 with rations and directives as I plan to 3 mark  it and wouldn't mind having fun with silly dpm. I could also then demount it and put it onto the 140, 62A and the STRV. 

 

What do the better players think? What did you choose and why?

 

Just a side note: I will alwaysssss choose to play aggressive if I get the opportunity. I hate passive play and only do so if there are no moves to be made. I feel this obsoletes Imp. Vents a little bit.

 

Thanks for any help :bajan:

surely optics or vents are the best choices?.. you rarely get to use the full DPM of a tank, and how much will imp rammer actually boost it by? would you actually notice the difference?

 

I would say that makes vents a better choice if your aggressive, it would affect the entire tank and boost everything...


 

but at the end of the day, its you who has to make the decision :P

Improved rammer is not restricted to caliber. Be a sane player and go for it

Well improved Vents offer the best deal since its a 50% upgrade rather then a 25% upgrade the other pieces offer.

 

However Vents are not as universial as a Rammer or Optics. Hence I would recommend to go with either of the two as the first piece.

It's not? I didn't even realise.

Makes sense but in all honesty I've yet to have a battle where I though ''improved equipment would have won me that'' and it's why I'm thinking specifically want rammer. Just for fun.

 

Anyone got both and could tell me which they would pick if they could only have one?

Be sure to take note of how many more bonds you will need for demounting.

What about inproved vstabs? They could be very usefull too, i think an extra 5% better gunhandling is more significant than 2.5% dpm.

I hope the make an improved brain soon, most of the player base could do wonders with that., Everything else, well the difference is minuscule and hardly worth worrying about.

I'm aware of the 200b cost but I almost exclusively play tier X thanks to broke MM so I make it back quite fast. Thanks for the heads up 

 

Guys please don't advise stuff like Co2 my 2 brain cells are easily persuaded

First congrats.  5k bonds is a nice pile.  I hope you make  a wise choice and enjoy making that choice and enjoy the fruits of that choice.

 

That being sad...

 

Anyone who posts a tl;dr a third of the way into their post deserves a spanking.

That 'tl;dr' probably saved us from half an hour of whining about grinding for bonds. I mean, the 'tl;dr' refers to the story here, not the forum post.

 

Anyway, well done! While a stabilizer is nice and all, does it make that much sense if the tank in question hardly has any bloom to begin with? 430 and Batchat... probably. T-62A/140? I'm guessing 'maybe'.

Vert Stabs could be a good choice, at least for a tank with atrocious gun handling.

Surely depends what tank you want it on. 

 

Remember it takes 200 bonds to demount it, so you are going to waste quite a lot of bonds if you don't get it right. 

 

I'd say the better ones are the obvious common equipment used on most tanks, vents, v-stab, rammer and optics. So depends what tank and go from there.

 

Like an STB-1 with improved v-stab is tempting.

 

A tier 10 light with improved optics. 

 

A very high DPM tank with improved rammer. 

 

Most heavies would probably benefit from improved vents.
