    We all used a mod for added realism that removed red outlines + tracers + red minimap dots,
    the game should just come this way imo

    That reminds me, are they ever going to make that "hardcore" mode that did all that and removed HP?
    They talked about it in the last Q/A so yeah, it's still in plans but I seriously doubt we'll see it until mid-late 2013 if even that

    Really far future stuff

    Played a historical battle. We all used a mod for added realism that removed red outlines + tracers + red minimap dots, and added historical tank skins for this particular desert battle + minimap for it, etc

    Was really tense. We had to rely on our eyes to spot the enemies and report their positions to others etc. And wrecks didn't burn for added confusion.

    We fought 5 battles overall. Managed to escape in two of them, we all got blown up in three. Random screens from all 5:
    I really wish WOT was actually like that.

    Second 122 for the SU is fucking awesome. First match I used it I got 6 kills and the sixth was a VK3001P that was 654m away. I hit him square in the rear of the tank, most satisfying kill ever.

    They say they need to figure out a way to make red outlines not clientside/hackable to prevent people from making them visible even when they're turned off. Same problem as they had with tracer hacks. We won't see "hardcore" before they do that

    And if they could make it so you have to manually aim the gun (as opposed to the current "gun aims itself to hit where you're pointing") that would be amazing. Would raise the skill ceiling a bit though, and I imagine Wargayming doesn't want that.

    yes it would make the game a realistic simulator capable of being played by only the most hardcore simulator fans like battlefield 3

    Well duh, the day it requires skill is the day a lot of their fan-base stops pouring money into it.

    I like how everyone here whines about lack of skill, pure grinding nature of this game, the fact that everything is unbalanced...

    but yet if your amount of won rounds / rounds is smaller than 50 percent, you are bad at video games

    Personally I believe that win ratio isn't all that important. Alot of times you just get the shit-end of the deal and have to support a fail-tacular team. You may somehow manage 8 kills a round, but if your team is shit and you end up losing anyway, well...

    That too. Often times I'll deal a bunch of damage to tanks just to have someone pop off one final shot on them before I can reload, so I'll have one or two kills but I damaged like 6 of them.

    Scouts often get the short end of the stick too, as they heavily rely on the performance and support of their team to do well. I have had times where bush scouting as a chaffee, and the tanks don't stay back and take advantage of this. I consider an average player around 48%, thanks in part to platoons and other issues.

    It depends, really. There are some tanks I just can't for the life of me play right, or have pure bad luck.

    Despite this, I hover around 49-50%. In fact, I wouldn't be worried anywhere from 48-52% or so, I'd call that luck. 47-53% could be from a certain tank or grind the player has.

    Anything over 55% makes me think that it's from platooned battles and otherwise.

    Anything under 45% makes me think that this player has little clue what he's doing (at least if he's driving a tier VII or higher.)

    I think win ratio half depends on your choice in tanks with good stats along with player skill so it's worth noting what

    It's hard not to have a 50% winrate with russian heavies while it's hard not to have under that if you're grinding the middle of the porsche line and end up on the VK3001P

    I don't know though, I have much better win ratios with tanks I enjoyed and did personally well with. For example, I believe I have around a 57% win rate with the KV-2, but haven't done a single platoon with it.

    Stock KT = amazing. I could honestly probably tolerate playing it stock all the way to the e75.

    I've seriously considered completely quitting this game just because of arty. I've either been one shotted or disabled beyond being effective by arty in my last 10 matches. In most of them I was doing pretty well too.

    What really pisses me is when I repair my ammo rack or engine just for the ammo rack to get hit again

    I was destroying the fuck out of a Lorraine 40t in my E8 and he hit my rack. Repaired and BOOM, the 12t next to him hits my rack and my driver.

    Just had a match in my chaffee from tier 5-8, or rather tier 5-6 and one 8 per side. Their tier 8 was a KV-5, ours was a type 59. By the end of the game the type 59 had 10 kills, and it was me and an M41 that dealt with KV-5.

    Matchmaker should never leave a tier gap like that (exception being tier 5 lights as tier 6's)

    I have enough credits to get either the GLD or the Binocs for my 13/75, but I'm kinda stuck on which one to get. Do you guys have any ideas which one I should get? I was leaning on getting the GLD but at the same time the Binocs has a nice view boost to it.

    this guy got so buttmad because he and an ARL 44 rushed to the river in the middle on El Halluf, and then I drove there in the E8 quick as fuck to stop them, he rounds the corner, I track him and he can't shoot anyone, then he gets pounded to fuck by my team and I

    The ARL did the same, and was like "whatever I have to go anyways lol" but the T25 got really buttmad

    and when I died he started to go all "YEAH U NOOB LOOK AT HOW BAD U R" etc. Won't be surprised if I get some angry chats

    I put a gun laying drive on mine because its not a perfect scout tank. If it were a M5 or a 50-2 or something id put binocs on it. but the 13 75 can be a pretty effective killer so i used the laying drive.
