Nice job. I took about a week off from playing and about ready to go back at it. I run mainly American tanks because of the challenge. M4 jumbo can be fun if played right.

Wargaming at it's finest.

Thank god for AW Open Beta starting soon hopefully..

WG wont change arty. There are too many clicker-people in wot communmity. Specialy among the russians they like simple gameplay. Just look at test servers all tanks are high tier arty and TD.

WG needs to lower the numbers of arty not just change them and make them easier to play because that will guarantee result in 5 arties every game just like before and think how fun it is to get focused by 5 arties with added rof, accuracy, "crew stunning", etc. Sure the alpha will be lower but the better accuracy will result in more direct hits and the higher rof will compensate for the lower alpha. The mechanics will still be the same, you get nuked from above with something you cant shoot back at. There are alreaddy on average 3 arties every game in high tiers, immagine later when arty will be more "fun" and "less frustrated" to play, we will have 5 arties every game and that will make the rebalance useless. As long as missions exists that encourage arty play there will be arty prescense in every game and it will also make the "arty aiming at you" warning useless since you cant run from so many arties nuking you thanks to xvm.

WG does absolutley not need to make arty more fun and less frustrating, they will only increase in higher numbers and in no case it is sane to have such a cowardly tank in more than 2 numbers max on each team. Arty nerf in 8.6 was specificly done to lower their numbers by making them "unfun", numbers still rose after a while and now WG is planning on making it even easier to play arty.

Instead of taking a few high alpha hits, you will take multiple lower alpha hits but more frequently. Unless WG nerf the DPM on arties significanly this wont work. Not to mention the "crew sting" and this is kinda ironic since critical damage is what is really annoying when being hit by skyatollah.

The "arty aim at you warning" wont change a thing for competent players since even now as soon as they get spotted they know arty aims at them and you must stand still while aiming on the tank infront of you right? There is no way to stay nuke safe from arty not even while moving or stay behind of "cover" (notice how more and more maps dont have cover or arty safe positions??) due to the high trajectory on some artys.

Most recent Mingles with Jingles confirms that it's in the workings. Using AW as their beta tester for the mechanic thumb.gif

I wouldn't doubt that the russian server ends up being untouched by the arty change but I sure the hell hope it happens. I'd even be okay with tier 10 arty keeping their current workings but changing everything up to it.

I could never watch any of Jingles WoT YouTube stuff. I found him to be extremely annoying overall with the commentary in his videos. It was also hard to watch because to put it simply he is pretty bad and makes a lot of mistakes. I will never understand why so many people like him.

I found the QB stuff to be much better in comparison.

I like Jingles because he has personality and is amusing, regardless of skill.

QB is very skilled, but he's as entertaining as a bucket of paint. He just seems completely flat.
post #5267 of 6618
QB and Jingles video styles are very different. Jingles is for people who want silly videos, QB is more for the strategists (he does more tank reviews and strategy videos). I watch both of their videos, though lately I've lost a bit of respect for QB because of his ridiculous gold spamming in games. A few shells to confirm an important kill here and there is fine but when you're automatically switching to prem rounds the second you come across anything with armor, even at the start of the game, is a bit ridiculous. You'll very rarely see Foch or Circonflexes doing that, even when the situation warrants it they'll do their best to find weakspots or a flank.

I particularly like Foch's videos. It is sad they are not released very often though haha

That's probably one thing I'm proud of. Never, EVER load gold unless it's for CW or Strongholds (and even for SH it's rare that I do). Unfortunately in the ASIA server, the culture is completely different here. They see any advantage as a means, regardless of wether it's cheating, or unsportsmanlike. We have a LOT of players using Warpack, so much so that it's now a banneable offense even just TALKING about it on the forum, and a lot of players from a particular group even proudly say they use it...

For us, it's completely different over here. Arty isn't an issue, gold spam and blatant use of illegal/hacked mods is the biggest one here.
