So .. I am now a user of XVM. After watching Garbad use it .. the minimap functionality is just too good to pass up. C'mon, a reminder of where the last known location of each enemy tank was!? C'MON!

And .. bragshot! Steel Wall Confederate Ranger E-75!




Looks like I carried slightly harder than the enemy unicum! I actually developed a strategy based on XVM. Because I knew the enemy unicum was likely to roll my team by going down 1/2 -- I instead charged very aggressively into the forest and spotted for my pubbie teammates. We quickly rolled them and got to the enemy arty. Victory was assured shortly afterwards. I almost got a top gun on this round too but my poor alpha screwed me out of 2 kills.

I use AOIMOD for my UI, and I think it uses the Lite version of XVM, which has the same minimap functionality will mentioned. It has a limited win% predictor though, and it never shows said win/lose every match, plus it never shows individual win percentages.

For me, overabundance of information is a hindrance.

I appreciate some the extras that came with AOIMOD though, and I have to agree, the map locator function is useful, but not always. I had an instance for example where the last location of a particular pesky TD we were looking for was listed as north... Only for it to show up south of the map, overlooking the flag. Yikes.

It is, after all, "last known."

I'm just using Locastan's HD minimap, which has enough extra information to make it work.

My one remaining objection to XVM is the running game through proxy server dealy.

Fair enough, I suppose? But this is not like RSS feed overload .. for example, if you know which lane a T28 was trying to go up to .. you can be pretty sure it didn't swap sides..

Who ever knew that, even when the hill had been "lost", leading a couple of low-tier light tanks would dramatically bring the battle to a sudden end? This replay was only 600 kilobytes, showing thus the quick speed at which victory was obtained.

Spoiler for No enemy who faced me directly survived:


Type 62 - Defense of Fjord boulder
Why "passive scouting" when you can effect upon the enemy "passive destruction"?

Spoiler for how dare he deny me my top gun!:


Type 62 - Jagd-62
Spoiler for Why was that lowe just sitting there?:

Public Test 8.5 is now up for anyone wanting to test the Leopard 1 line of tanks before it goes live.

The most interesting thing about patch 8.5 asides from the tanks though:

With this, everything in World of Tanks can now be used without using gold or premium accounts

Tell us about the Leo if you are playing the test server.

It's just as I expected: An agile Batchat without the autoloader but more accuracy. It'll be completely driven into the ground by the masses playing in public matches, but has the potential to replace the T-62A in several CW roles in CW.

I'm still skeptical .. it doesn't look like it'll be as maneuverable as the Batchat and it has lower DPM than the T-62A and has a weaker turret but greater gun depression so hull-down tactics confuse me... We'll see.

See, I am getting it partially for vindictive reasons. I am pretty tired of the lack of competitive German tier X in CW, and this might just be the tank to fulfill that role, albeit a supportive one.

That, and I figured having both a Heavy Tier X and a Medium Tier X would make my garage more versatile in engaging various tactical situations

Wow, you're moving up that win rate curve FAST! Congrats! I wish I had more time to play recently..

So, what do people think about the Leopard I comparing to say, the T-62A on the test server?
