Title: World Of Tanks
Post by: Dibs on November 07, 2011, 09:35:27 pm
ive been playing this for around about a year now and still havnt really made a dent in any of the tech trees. so im wondering who plays it or is interested in playing it?

its a free MMO based on WWII tanks you buy them, upgrade them, train crews, add equippment and with the 7.0 update arriving within the next few weeks you can add camo to your tank

check it out http://game.worldoftanks.eu/

if you already have it then add me up - Fellowz

I looked at this a while ago but gave up downloading the installer because my connection was shart at the time. I'll have to take another look at it as I like tank type games and rolling about smashing shit up.

Been playing on this game for a few days now and its awesome, although I have noticed it seems to be one person who carries the whole team. I keep on getting mixed in with all these heavy tanks and just end up being dominated by them as they kill my puny little light tank in one go.

Other than that, that's my only grief with the game. Well and the fact all the sounds are the bloody same but eh its a free game. Almost forgot, the repeating cannons are over powered to hell because they throw off the aim of the semi-auto cannons so much you cant kit them

Also, hit me with a friend inv : Glassybubbles

The over-powered cannons of the cannons from the 75mm or higher semi-cannons are awesome doing a lot of damage to  lower tier tanks and can do damage to higher tiers if hit in a vunerable area. The repeating shots fair enough they are inaccurate overall and damage on heavies due to their weak damage and peneration but I agree that the recoil and the unsteady aim in the repeated shots are hell when they recoil but when you step up in the game the shells are going to take longer and the aim will take longer as the high mm cannons from the semi is just as bad but goes in 1 shot depending on the cannon's mm.

Almost forgot, the repeating cannons are over powered to hell because they throw off the aim of the semi-auto cannons so much you cant kit them

This doesn't always happen to semi-auto cannons just depends on the tank you are using and the turret that it has that will determine if the aim is thrown off.

You will love the higher tier tanks when you can give a high level damage in 1 shot to lower tiers with less armor but beware of high tiers, getting hit in the back by other tanks and artillary fire.

I myself have a KV-3 (107mm)  and a T32 Heavy (105mm)  and the higher the mm the more time it takes to reload that is slow and dull making every shot count as the tanks would be vunerable to any speading tank as a scout for artillary.

I have. I'm up to the AMX40 now, with the aim of getting to the AMX 13 90.

dibs french tanks are only good at tier 7 or above the below ones are rubbish ><

I disagree. In lower tier battles French armour is nigh on undefeatable unless you hit weakspots. The only real anomaly is that the AMX40 gets put into battles which are too high a tier for it, probably because the matchmaking considers it to be a fast scouting tank (like other Tier IV light tanks) when it isn't.

Post by: Dibs on February 22, 2012, 09:25:05 am
i have the AMX 13 75, i banked up loads of XP when i knew 7.2 was on its way so ive managed to skip most of the god awful tanks but i cant say the same for the BDR which is god awful even with the 90mm

i do agree some french tanks are put into tiers too high. i destroyed a Jagdtiger when i had the AMX 12 only if i had the jump on it and just keep away from that nasty 128mm

if you guys want to add me my username is fellowz

Post by: lucas lee on February 22, 2012, 01:20:44 pm
the 128mm is awesome :P on a ferdi and a Jagdtiger :P and the 120mm on the T28 but yep speed defeats all td's :P. If it was a light tank i'd go for one of the french meds over tier 6,  type 59 or the T-44 or T-54

fair enough Viel but do you consider that the french tank guns do suck at a low tier as in 1 match I tried with 5 other french tanks to shoot the same tanks and also american tanks we did nothing to each other for over 2 mins wasting ammo shooting at different places on eachothers tanks :/.

And match maker really is aweful on there as i was in a tier 6 and i get put in tier 10's ><.
Title: Re: World Of Tanks
Post by: Dibs on February 22, 2012, 04:39:25 pm
the matchmaking is pretty poor i do admit. for example

this is the gun i have for my AMX 13 75

75 mm SA50
   
Damage: 135/135/175(HP)
Penetration: 144/202/38(mm)
ROF: 4.29(r/m)
Accuracy: 0.31(m)
Aim Time:   2(s

that is a very powerful gun especuially with the autoloader which makes up for its lack of armour.

a pack of AMX 13's completley rendered the enemy team useless in a match i played today with tier X's they took out the arty and flanked the heavies while our heavies moved up and the TD's moved into positions to take them out. these are very good tanks when used correctly, hence the matchmaking, if they were placed in lower tier battles people would moan they are overpowered. i took a few teams by suprise inflicting damage on their top tier tanks before vanishing again. its down to the player.

the early french tanks are very poor, playing with a friend who had tier I,II and III french tanks it was just painful to watch. but some of them are very well armoured for their tiers such as the AMX 38 and the B1.


but unfortuanely i have sold 4 tanks to buy 1 :( my Tiger P, Panther, Panzer 4 and VK2801 just to buy a Panther II. and i need to save money for my Ferdinand.

what are your usernames. ill add you today.

Its fun for a while but I find it gets too samey.
Its just TDM with tanks after a while, needs more objectives.
Title: Re: World Of Tanks
Post by: Greg on June 14, 2012, 05:37:08 pm
Sadly I have to agree, after a while of trying to progress to your next tank you then realize how bloody long it takes to get just a fraction of the money and xp needed for it. This game is more of a commitment :L

Mind you I bought premium for a month and its making the grind a little easier with the xp and coin boost.

Have had my Tiger II for a few days now, fields better than the Tiger I. Has a play style similar to the VK3601H, the Tiger I is more of a sniper tank whereas the Tiger II is more of a brawling tank.

The Mk7 is a brilliant tank, has the same gun as its father but in T9. Plus it looks the shit with metal storage thing on the back of the turret.

Post by: lucas lee on April 24, 2013, 11:15:54 pm
The E-50M is a good tank as it can get you quite a bit of credit and that it is quite a fast tank that is really useful, E-100 is good only if you get the next upgraded gun the 1.5cm gun and the foch is nice but quite a easy arty target and armour aint too great.

Post by: lynchie on April 25, 2013, 10:36:27 am
8.5 good for germans you get a medium t10 at last and a post war tank i.e the leopard . but the e50m is excellent it is a kingtiger on steroids .but only  a medium excellent.
Title: Re: World Of Tanks
Post by: Dibs on April 26, 2013, 06:09:47 pm
i played the centurion MK7 on the test servers and safe to say i was very impressed the L7 is a beast. but its rate of fire is terrible. but thats the sacrifice it has to pay for such a good gun!

yeah ive seen a few E50-M's ruin an enemy team, but their profitablity is awful. i checked the stats and just when i thought the E50 was bad the E50-M is even worse. and i dont use a premium account anymore. so i decided to get myself an IS6 for cred farming. and so far it is a very good tank.

i just wish WG would stop teasing and release the E-10 and E-25 TD's, not to mention sort out the 2nd line of french Heavies.

but its true what Lynchie says, its about time the Germans got a more modern tank compared to the other nations the Germans have been lagging behind terribly and all the Devs have done is give us paper panzers to bulk up the tree even though they claim the german tree is the most "complete" in the game

Ever since Overlord left for WoWWP WoT has taken a 180 turn for the shitter now that SerB has taken over. He is constantly making fun of people who say he is turning a blind eye to the Russian favoritism, I mean when Overlord was around the T-50-2 was scheduled to be sent to the scrap yard due to it being COMPLETELY FAKE but now for some reason SerB is thinking it's real and does not need to be removed. And don't even get me started on the KV-1S....
Title: Re: World Of Tanks
Post by: Dibs on April 26, 2013, 08:25:59 pm
yeah the T-50-2 was so slow it wasnt even worth putting in originally. and the KV1S is the most overpowered tank at T6, it is a very popular choice for company and clan wars personally i didnt like it. the KV2 with the derp gun can easily remove a pesky 1S from the equasion, i specialize in doing it.

Overlord needs to come back, SerB is trolling the game and making it unplayable on occasions, the most annoying thig was the fact the British tree was outsourced by WG so they could concentrate on the Chinese copy & paste tanks.

WG trying to cover up their antics again, remember that 300 gold change your password event? Well this is why, this is from a friend of mine who has a registered account on the RU server;

"Dear Adolf_Bimler,

during the last inspection by the security company Wargaming incident was identified as a result of which some of your personal information could be jeopardized. We immediately launched an investigation into the incident and at the moment we can assure you that the financial information of accounts was not affected. However, to date, we have reason to believe that your e-mail address and password in an encrypted form might be exposed to intruders."

Basically they told RU they cocked up, but didn't tell EU, NA or SEA but instead launched the 300g to change your password event in an attempt to get people to change their password... nice one WG... nice one...
