Once again, low tiers are bad, mid tiers are boring and top tiers are really good? This has been the template for all the recent branches. Kranvagn, Strv 103B, TVP T 50/51, you get the point. They want people to use free XP to reach tier 8, it's that simple. But anyway, waiting to see how OP they get with those weird magazine mechanics. Shoot a tank once, fall back, they come for you, empty the entire clip. That's like having a TVP T 50/51 with an extra shell, that you can fire at any moment. Seems pretty OP.

All look the same to me.

 

Watched the DezGame video on these lastnight. They all look the same... because they are the same tanks with slight variations and all have terrible aim and accuracy.

That tier 10 is one ugly tank :(

 

Well actually that seems quite nice tank.The tier 9 one is bad cause of its ugly rear but tier 10 one looks great to me.

And that right there explains why there are apparently so many clueless braindead donkeys roaming the various maps in WoT in Tier 6 and higher tanks... players that very clearly rushed through the lower tiers in record time (or just used all their free XP) and never actually bothered to try and learn even some of the basics of the game for the class(es) of tank they're trying to use in-game.

 

The thing is though, it's not just WG that encourage that kind of mentality of rushing through the tiers as fast as possible at all costs; even certain youtubers that regularly cover WoT in their videos have been guilty in the past of suggesting that the average WoT player really ought to be getting to a certain tier in 'X' amount of time, and to the next tier in a certain amount of time after that, and so on. And so presumably some players are hearing this kind of thing from their favourite youtuber(s) and are perhaps then feeling a little pressured by the thought that if they spend 'too long' at some comparatively lower tier or other that they're perhaps doing something dreadfully wrong and/or have in some way failed at the game.

What are you talking about?!?! You don't even play the game..:amazed:

 

It's true that I don't have that many battles, but it's completely understandable since I'm rather new to the game and joined the company very late.

 

This is the kind of attitude that drives new players away from the forum, so I suggest you reconsider your approach, as it's something we do not want here. Just because someone doesn't have a high battle count, that doesn't mean they cannot enjoy the game.

Indeed, but it does (not in your case) generally mean they don't know what they are talking about. Those are two entirely different things, enjoying oneself and knowing what they are talking about ;)

What Cobra said. There is nothing wrong with being new to the game, but with a low battle count most people generally speaking lack experience, and technically speaking don't know the game well enough and don't know what they are talking about.

 

Players who are not really good at the game, and play for fun, that's fine, who cares? but when those same players who don't really know the game that well, and are not very good try to give advice to people who want to take the game seriously and get better, that's when they deserve to be corrected about it.

 

As said before, not really the case with you.

Not really. TVP has very good gun-handling (for an autoloader at least) and intra-clip reload, dishing out 1280 damage in less than 5 seconds, and then takes about 23 seconds to reload the clip.

The italian T10 has an intra-clip reload of 3 seconds. That's an eternerty for an autoloader. Also gun-handling seems average at best going by published stats so far, and reloading the clip when empty is gonna take much longer as well.

 

So if you play it like a regular autoloader it's pretty crappy. If you play it like a regular single-shot tank it's also below average as it's literally worse than a Leo1 in every aspect (and we all know how "OP" the Leo1 is). The only good thing is that you can mix both playstyles freely, how effective that will be remains to be seen.

Now that prompted me to check your account. It looks .... interesting (and I don't mean the massive collection of premium tanks that is common to WG staff accounts).

I'd like this but I'm sick of incomplete tech trees. How about finishing the tech trees that are already in the game?

Still to be added:

UK: LT line

Czechoslovakia: TD, HT, LT, SPG lines

Japan: LT, TD, SPG lines

Sweden: LT, MT, SPG lines

China: SPG line

 

USA: Tech tree rework!

 

Also, that tier 9 looks really bad. I like the tier 10.

 

How about no more SPGs ever.

Yeah, that's not likely to ever happen, no matter how often the community loudly and/or repeatedly asks for it; but at least reducing the maximum number of arties to 1 per team per battle would be a step in the right direction, plus it would stop the current random mess where we get a number of consecutive games with 2 or 3 arties, followed by a couple/few games in a a row with only one or none at all...

 

So it just wouldn't be quite so bad if there were a little consistancy in that regard, as well it would free up 1 or 2 spaces on each team for actual tanks/TD's, which should then help make the battles that much more interesting (i.e. more balanced and dynamic) with less of a threat of being blasted into the middle of next week by a triple orbital strike.

@Kandly Any chance of the Xmas event tank discounts still being usable by the time the Italian tanks turn up in-game?

It could be, but for sure they do not rust at the first rain! ... And certainly they do not have wooden frame (mushroom cultivation?) :)

See that the armored divisions like "Ariete" went to battle knowing they had lower armored vehicles, they were made to annihilate consciously .

Instead of more tanks, add more different maps!
