I don't know what you mean. Please explain in detail.

Also, I happened to come across this recently. Assuming that is the real box art and nothing changes before release, that looks to be a pretty cheap way to get a PzB2, and you even get a free, probably crappy board game along with it!

On topic: I know this is a bit late but when and why was crew EXP adjusted such that the commander caps at 100% and everyone else at 110%?

It wasn't... a few patches ago the display was changed so that when you put a crew into a vehicle their skill will show the commander's bonus and any BiA/vents bonus that may also apply to the vehicle. So here there's the 5% extra from BiA for everyone (105% on the commander) and for the rest of the crew the 5% for BiA plus the 11% from the commander's base bonus applied to the rest of the crew (everyone else at 116%).

I cannot believe I cant play the Te-Ke properly. Sniping and flanking works on this soon to be rare premium tank.

The only thing I cannot do in that tank is the circle of death which I always do with my LTs and MTs.

Nope. I just bought the 12t again (took quite some time to save up for it), and it took me all of two matches to regret it. It still sees tier 9 battles. Tier 9 battles as in 'half the tanks are tier 9 and you are the only tier 6'. And when you complain about the matchmaking, you hear 'but you are a scout'. 12t as a scout, my ass.

Well, that is still an improvement over Tier 10 or higher battles; you get a slightly-higher chance of seeing a battle closer to your own tier, and won't be the token Tier 6 scout riding along with 14 Tier 10s.

...you can be the token Tier 6 scout riding along with 14 Tier 9s.

Meanwhile... this would have been an easy Steel Wall if it hadn't actually occurred during a suicidal scouting attempt.

I got the same damage blocked on my 110 and JPE100 last week on Prokv. I dont know where all baddies come from lately. I can kill a T95 or E3 300 meters away in 2-3 shots from my JPE100 easily. Even my Jagtiger has no problem penning T95 on cupola 75% of the time in long range.

Last night I was helping my friend grind his TigerP on my Jagpanther and won 12/13 games. Got on top 3 xp pretty much every battle and top score on all the Tierx games. Best game was penning the STI 3/3 and end up top xp. Also got my first mark for the JagPanther last nigte.

Yep, that was Prokhorovka, where I decided that it would be better to push the road after several minutes instead of waiting with everyone else to be flanked from the east. It could have worked.

I did get a private channel post-game "Thank you" for giving a tank a push today. People are nice once in a while...

I've got a low-level mastery badge on the Te-Ke, but haven't really tried to play it that much. I'm still glad to be mostly clear of the bottom tiers.

I did stuff a crew into the T18 for the... fourth time? now, tried the derp gun again, hated the derp gun again, and returned to the 2-pdr... again. This is for training a replacement crew. It would be easier to gain XP using any of my other TDs, but at the same time I'm trying to maintain the stats on those vehicles, while with the T18 I just don't care.

I'm also causing trouble to my WR by doing a lot of repetitive grinding, but now that I'm trying to really avoid throwing money into free XP conversions, such is life.

Speaking of throwing myself into stupid challenges for... stupidity, I pushed through five torturously-stupid games in the PzV/M10 because I noticed that I was within 0.5% of getting a Mark of Excellence. Did a lot of damage... mostly while being one of anywhere from one to three tanks holding down an entire flank. Left one game with a cheerful "See you in hell, lemming train!" after dying.

And then I noticed that OF COURSE the Warcrime Panther will have the USA-styled barrel mark because its entire camo scheme is US-based, not Wehrmacht.

Here it is anyway.

Also, while I'd unlocked the AMX 13 90 a week ago, I waited until the crew retraining sale to move people into it. First game was a loss, but it did demonstrate the one thing that I really wanted to get from it: The 90mm actually can alpha things to death. The 13 75 has some maneuverability advantages over the 12t, but no major weaponry advantage. The 90 is at least a bit more competitive at its tier.

Buffing lights to the point where they are actually a viable class and introducing powerful new lights might just be the spark to save this game. While we're at it, WG should do a global view range nerf excluding lights, and rape the view range of TDs.

It'd be hilarious to see WoT battles with 1/2 light tanks on each team (like we sometimes see 1/2 TD teams now and then), zig-zagging about the map and having insane fast-paced brawls.

It shocks me to say this, but WG's actually somewhat gradual adjustment to the meta so far doesn't feel too bad. There's the case of the significant 8.6 arty change, but on a practical level, having played a lot of arty since then, it doesn't feel like it was totally broken. The recent TD "nerf" barely did anything. (And stupid WTE100 drivers are still stupid.)

A shift toward lights is going to be interesting depending on how it smashes into the current heavy brawling map selection; driving fast doesn't help very much if there isn't a place to drive fast to. It'll definitely further hurt pure sniper TDs.

I'm sliding into a "Don't give a ****" attitude toward grinding out the AMX 50 100. I think subconsciously I know what I need to do to play it better, I just... don't care. My WR in it is truly screwed as a result.

My WR in the T69 is not much better, but I feel like I enjoyed that a lot more. Both vehicles did get ground pretty much from stock, though. The T54E1 started out almost full-up... but even then, I seem to really, really, really enjoy using that, and my WR is much better there.

This might have to do with the 50 100's iffy gun handling first, and its ridiculous length second. I need to play more cautiously; the aim time isn't great, the intershell reload feels/is slow compared to the US autoloaders, and the elevation and depression are blah. I seem to be reacting to this by doing stupid YOLOs... though this weekend my teams seem to want to spend all 15 minutes hiding in the corners anyway.

So, I bought that WoT board game I posted about the other day for the lulz and shockingly it does indeed come with a code for a PzB2. I've never even seen a post about this game anywhere on Wargaming's site. I think there'd be a lot more B2s around if anyone actually knew about it; it's far cheaper than any of the packages they were selling it in over the course of the past year.

Their lack of advertising for it can't be helping.

Also, it's still almost $30 for a "special" vehicle that is only good as a low-tier amusement and isn't entirely unique anymore (particularly since WG has a habit now of whoring out the "unavailable" vehicles now as monthly event giveaways). This isn't the days of the infamous T-127 gold trade-in deal.

Meanwhile...

Can I be disappointed in a win?

Because lemmings.

The worst part is, if you start north, there's a very high probability that the other team will do this... and people end up camping out in the NW corner anyway, causing nothing to happen for ten minutes.

And... On-Track MM happens for once.

This was a loss.

I went to the bridge with four other tanks; the team's lemming train drove straight into the city and lost four tanks in about 90 seconds.

Hey UTE, how are the french autobagettes? I want to grind the french tree in my second acc, since I have spare money and spare garage slots in there.

And also, nice changes to the magic forest on murovanka.
