Hi guys,

 

I'm a bit bored in WoT, grinding some medium lines but I'm waiting for some tier 6 & 7 discounts to buy the next tanks.... In the meantime I was thinking what to do, and frankly all my ideas seem quite dumb.

I was looking to get the T95 with blueprints, because it looks like a unique tank. However I don't really like slow tanks. I really need to try it on the testserver first, but I don't want to wait for the testserver.

Today my EBR-90 got shot 2x by a T49, the first game for 1019, the second game for 930. So naturally I tried to improve my gameplay so it wouldn't happen again wanted to get the T49 for myself (with blueprints). But with upcoming HE changes the T49 is likely a turd in the (near) future.

Finally I'm grinding my EBR-90 and I seem to lack a bit of concentration to play it properly. I was thinking to grind the entire way to the 105 by just yolo'ing enemy arty...

 

So my question, which idea do you think is the dumbest?

I don't think that T49 worth it anymore. I also wanted to get it, I have Bulldog unlocked and I could get T49 with blueprints but as you said, the HE changes will make it a useless turd (as it is already) but atleast now it is fun to play.

 

BTW I votted the 3rd option. I think that is definetly the best and most fun idea.

The T95 can be a horrible thing to face and I suspect the gun would make the (lack of) speed bearable. Wheelie yolo sounds like fun and no one's going to call you dumb for taking out enemy arty early on.

 

That leaves the T49, which could end up relatively unscathed or could be completely neutered and be left with the 90mm option on a light tank with bad camo. I strongly suspect it'll be nerfed quite heavily given the talk about how much everyone hates being one-shot and therefore it wins the prize for dumbest idea.

Go for T95. In the current corridor maps it truly is a beast. It also has a 750 alpha boomstick. But for the love of god, please play it like a superheavy, don't try to snipe from the back.

Mind you, my favourite tank class are superheavies, so I am biased.
These are the pros of superheavy tanks:
- you cant rush in early on in the battle and get killed. If you are an impatient player, like me, that is a big plus.
- the only tank class that is capable of leading a charge and surviving. Whenever I play standard heavies, I am always frustrated when we outnumber the enemy on my flank, but everyone is scared of pushing cause they may die - and when I do it, and eventually die (while also returning damage) they just dont follow up. With superheavies you can take the beating long enough so that your scared/sleeping/dumb allies realise they should support your push.
- alternatively, you can hold a flank on your own against 3 tanks or more, provided that they are driven by bad players who cant realise (or they dont trust each other) that they can just rush you and kill you, giving enough time for your team on the other flank to overwhelm the enemy. If they cant overwhelm them even though they have numbers advantage, that just means that battle was impossible to win anyway.

I truly believe superheavies are the best class for random battles, because you can perform solidly in them even if your team does't cooperate with you. I don't think other tank classes can do it as well as superheavies can - but maybe I just suck with other tank classes, after all.

 

Ah btw worst idea is t49. I misunderstood the poll.

Voted for T95.

As far as I remember it was kind of "fun" once I understood the how and where.

Tip: Try to sitck on this vehicle only. This will reduce the frustration of the slowness everytime the battle starts.

Be a man, GO FOR T95!

:honoring:

 

You should have gotten this idea at the beginning of the Holiday Ops, since grinding thing you do not like becomes bareable.

LT=Free Xp.

Grinding is still the same, holiday oops or not.

Thanks guys, I know what to do now. Man up and get the T95, yolo with the EBR to compensate for the slow T95 and forget about the T49.

 

:trollface: :trollface::trollface:

 

edit: Seems I've overestimated my blueprint collection, need to grind the Wolverine and Jackson first... :child:

I report arty yolo-ers for unsportsmanlike conduct...

 

If I'm trying to do a mission, I wanna have a fair chance at it, and not have it ruined by some random #$%"#&!#$%

I roll with a T49 and the 90mm but it probably isn't that good. An AMX 13 90 does the LT role better.

 

Wouldn't get Doomturtle as I hate slower tanks...

Go up the EBR line since WG don't seem to have any intentions to change them. HE nerfs will effect the higher tiers but they still have so many positives to balance the loss of a HE round. They'll still be the best lights (at least at tier 10).

What if their mission is to spot or damage arty? Seems a bit harsh to expect every other player to support your mission.

YOLO arty is a good cause and far from dumb.

Demanding a "fair chance" while playing the cheat class??!!! That's the pinnacle of hipocrisy right there.

Get the T49 and enjoy it while it lasts. It's an incredibly fun vehicle and not even overperforming so i'm putting my tinfoil hat on saying it'll stay unchanged.

 

Reason is that there's KV-2® premium and they always go yada yada can't change premium tanks or else people want refund.

 

Thinking that ultimately it'll just be Arty HE change cos people will be ultra pissed if they can't enjoy M4 or KV2 anymore

 

 

Word of wisdom tho, it's not an easy tank to play, and you have to run it with Cola and improved Vstab and directive for maximum gun handling, turret traverse bloom is nearly the worst in the game and that turret turns too fast (yes i actually snipe a lot with my t49 derp, almost 3marked this way and the troll factor of penning a grille from 400m is priceless)

 

Basically once you rush into that bush in the middle of the map, it's just good to hold your fire until that perfect target shows up. Keeps you alive way longer as well.

This makes T49 essentially the most fun *passive* scout in the game, because if you see an enemy scout going towards your bush, you just aim, aim, aim and,,, boop! then bolt out with this :trollface: look on your face

 

If T49 had Sheridan derp gun stats (and sheridan works better with 105mm anyway) it'd be a perfectly balanced vehicle

Strictly speaking, they could change HE mechanics without altering any of the stated parameters of premium tanks, thus avoiding giving any refunds. For example, "HE damage is now reduced by 90% when a shell fails to penetrate armour". HE nerfed, no refunds due as advertised parameters of the tank haven't changed.

Tbh... T49 has more DPM with the 90mm then the derp. It's the only tank in the game that has more AP dpm then HE dpm in with his gun selection. I don't fear a derp T49 most times. But my lights tend to stay away from a full HP 90mm T49. As even if he misses the first shot. I can't out DPM him if I lack HP.  And I do run the 90mm on mine. And the DPM makes it a great bully light tbh if the hit and run with the derp gets ruined.

as I said, tinfoil hat is on.

 

These "changes" like crew reduced to one and HE rework are just ways to activate the community. Even negative exposure is exposure. See Fallout 76 for instance, absolutely hated, but therefore successful marketing.

 

In the future expect something like tanks needing to stop and stay still one second to shoot in those sandbox servers
