Auto aim takes no skill except a right click, big whup. If you’ve watched Claus’ Last couple of rants I see the disappearing rounds all the time and then you aren’t penning either and you get rolled over. Game is broken.

Just an FYI for Guido's website.
I really like him. Has a nice calm disposition. No ranting, yelling or accent you can't understand.
Lots of good, useful info daily about how to play the game. Helpful at all levels.
Looks good! Thanks for the heads up mTk.
 
Those of you who have the slightest interest likely know this, but WoT is offering 5x experience bonuses through this Monday.
Adding other available bonuses to that can really rack up experience in a hurry. If you win.

Changed my call sign to Blue_Rook. For absolutely no other reason than a little boredom set in and sometimes change is good.
So, if you see a tank wandering the map like it has no idea what it's doing and has a cool little rook on the turret, it is probably me.
Example below.

Oh, in the upcoming patch they've reportedly nerfed the (above) Standard B accuracy a bit. Boo!
However, since it's not really a sniper anyway it will probably go unnoticed (by me) in game play.
Why can't they nerf some tanks that actually really need it. Yes, I'm looking at you vheeled whehicles! Yes, I know WG mentioned they were looking at them, but 2025 is a long way off! :unsure:
All the rumors I've heard suggest that WG is working on a huge tank rebalancing for sometime in the, perhaps distant, future.
I can hear the moaning, whining and teeth gnashing already.
The problem, as I see it, is WG can't/won't rebalance premium tanks because subscribers had to pay real $ to acquire them. That's got to seriously put a huge crimp in what they can do.
I don't see how a fair compensation to players couldn't be made available to resolve that easily enough. What do I know?

Should that be White Rook?

Quick nerf for wheeled vehicles - takes a minimum of 30 seconds before a repair kit finishes. Takes double the time to repair damage than normal. That should dampen there OP nature.

If we are going to have to suffer with wheeled vehicles and Op fantasy tanks, why not let us tank fans have an M50A1 Ontos, a 6 barrelled US TD...

https://mcvthf.org/Veh/M50A1_Ontos.html

Proudly served in Viet Nam, USMC operated. Only carried like 18 rounds. But although it wasn't recommended, it could shoot a salvo (or should I say broadside) of 6-105 mm recoiless rifle AP rounds in extremis...


Bring on the IS-7 bitches!

They already have the mouse firing mechanism if they steal the one from World of Warships. A single left click would fire one gun, holding the left mouse button down would ripple fire the 6 guns and two rapid left clicks would fire all six simultaneously.

Now it might take 2 minutes to reload...but...

They're (sorta) working hard at toning them down when they just need to find the <delete> key.
Problems solved.
Best case scenario they nerf them enough to where LT's become playable again.
Lots of goodies available as WG celebrates the WoT 10th anniversary.
Even though I am critical of the game it still remains awesome. A ten year run is just an incredible feat for gaming nowadays!
 
I must say I am kinda interested in how Equipment 2.0 is gonna all shake out. I like WG's thinking about this (mostly). The current equipment is obsolete and extremely
limited in what you can add to tanks that is actually helpful. It's all added by rote. Get a new tank, add the same 3 items, line up for a battle. No thinking involved. Now
it is going to be waay different with the addition of the "bonus" slot and some new equipment items as well. It will be making us think a bit about how we want to play
the tank.
Of course, the rich will just get richer as they gain more and more access to "bond" bonus equipment, then added to the "bonus" slots too. Us average players should
just get ready to die a little quicker.
The single, best way to earn bonds is playing Tier X tanks. Well, that's really fair WG!
The new equipment will be fun! As I reconfigure the 116 tanks in my garage. :p

I believe the update will be activated the moring of 08-05.
My, my, but this update is impressive. If for no other reason the shear scope of what WG is trying to pull off all at one time.
Of course, they've been working on this for quite a while in anticipation of their 10 year anniversary celebration. No mean feat by itself.
I think the updated equipment is going to be a huge game changer where the game meta will just be different. No one seems to have any real idea exactly
how it's all going to shake out, but it certainly is interesting.
Here's a good vid by Dez if you don't feel like doing all that reading yourself.

{yawn}. They’ve had ten years to work on it...

I’d be more impressed if they had 10 years worth of new maps and if all the tanks are now balanced and they have brought the wheeled ARMORED CARS back to reality. Well?

The new equipment is nice and I like the idea of it with more granularity in the modifiers and I do think it will change the meta, but where’s that destructible Terrain we were promised 4 years ago?

Actually, thanks for posting.

The ACs were brought back ... or at least a long way closer ... to reality. I'm a little bummed that they nerfed my Standard B and 430U. But I'll get used to it. The German heavies are looking a little nicer though.
Until a wheeled vehicle gets destroyed when shot head-on from 20 meters with a 128 mm AP round from a German gun on a Skorpion G, then no, it's not closer to reality...
 
WG did finally realize the anger of a lot of their player base about the cars. As usual they didn't want to upset those players that use them (disrupt the ruble flow)
so they nerfed them to the extent it will have absolutely no affect on the gaming meta. But they can now say, "See? We listened to the gaming community!"
Given WG's history, I fear the new equipment is going to end up with players figuring out how to make "super tanks." Like Dez has shown. That will be fun.

Yes, another case of WG having their cake and eating it too. Did you see Jingles video a couple of days ago with the EBR105's? Submitted by a Progetto 65 player? That was basically my experience during Frontline....two wheeled vehicles totally dominated three of the 9 map tiles, basically along one whole flank of the battle area. Two feckin' armored cars stymieing MBT's. And WG sees that as...oh yeah, a cash cow. Asinine in the extreme.
