RedBullJeep Ammorack for the kill shot! Look at where your turret is sitting.

MochaMike Better shot of gun damage:

MochaMike Can someone explain this to me:

I was 1 shotted by a T30 for 1700 damage.

MochaMike Woopee....

RedBullJeep Decent games with a low EXP return...but, how did it go on your wins?
05-28-2017 01:15 PM
MochaMike Just about ready to quit playing...

RedBullJeep Nope...friend's list working properly. I've had a few of those one-sided games recently. For the most part though, I am liking the MM better than in the past. Have been working up towards Obj 140 and am loving the tier 7 and tier 8 t43/t44 battles. I have abandoned heavies altogether as I just can't get the hang of brawling. I do pretty good in mediums but for some reason, heavies escape me entirely.
05-11-2017 05:52 PM
MochaMike Anyone else lose their friend list this week with the latest update?

Some recent games.

I would say...yeah...now that I think about it...that holds true. Certain ships makes a difference.

A tier VIII Destroyer in a battle, really isn't that much below unless it has to go 1 on 1 with a Tier X Destroyer....so if you are Tier VIII...avoid them. Against other ships...your torpedos still hurt and just have shorter range. But a Tier VIII Battleship with 65,000 hit points is going to be woefully under gunned against a 105,000 hit point battleship.

Overbear No lopsided games here, I am getting more score and more damage done in both TD and Heavy now.
Arty is no longer the OP pile of shit they use to be. No more one hit kills by arty (that should have NEVER been a thing) The stun function is a bit annoying when you are pinned down but you can overcome it with a little thought.
04-25-2017 01:07 PM
RedBullJeep I'm not having the major lopsided games you are. Sure, there have been one or two, but nothing like before the update. At one point yesterday I was amazed as I had a bunch of games in a row come down to just a couple of people per team, which I felt was a sign of good things.

As for arty, it is a bit odd. I'm cleaning up in my larger damage arty, but the smaller caliber arty like the bert seems to have taken a step back as they are now doing less damage but don't even stun mediums much of the time...stunning heavies doesn't seem to happen at all. In the end, with all arty, I'm doing about the same EXP as I was before.

I suspect that WG will be making more tweaks to both arty and lights, and of course the new "corridor only" map changes are on the way soon. It's going to be interesting to see how things look in the next couple of months, once they make more tweaks.

MochaMike Here is todays WTF is that....

I got the following pop up congratulations tonight.

However, when I look at my profile I get this (pic 2).

Overall, most people I play with feel the latest update was a major fail.

The stun feature for arty simply gives other players on your team more points, while you don't get as many as you used to (depending on the tank).

My SU-8 had 3 pens today (new updated ammo says average of 600 damage), for a total of 302 damage (no kills)......
04-19-2017 07:36 PM
MochaMike Glad to see the new MM is working well..

Here are my first 2 games tonight...

0-15 first game
10-5 second.

EDIT: After a bunch more games in various tanks.... Waaaayyyyy more lopsided games.
04-11-2017 07:55 AM
Overbear Holy crap, new on the Sandbox server. 30v30 on maps 9x9 square. Please WG let this come to the real servers!

Exactly! I actually had a simultaneous kill on a pair of m44's with my fv207 blind firing the corner at A-0. They were platooned together and both wrote me hate mail. I consider it a badge of honor when they get pissed.

The small map, with railway in the west, castle east, field in middle. You know the absolute worst arty map.

When I play arty, I watch for tracers and counter their arty on a regular basis. I have tons of kills of arty and they have never been spotted. After the game, I get bitched at by the arty I kill in the first 2 minutes of the game as they say I am cheating. Nope, I'm simply playing smart and they were not.

First rule of arty: The very second you hit the button to fire, MOVE...every single time...and not just 5 meters.
Depends on the map. Yes, shoot & scoot.

Elwenil PCs have more power but are too expensive too keep current when I can pay $400 for a console that will be good for at least 10 years. If I am going to invest thousands over a 10 year period, it's going to be on something more than cheap entertainment.

PS4 FTW.
