First Ace in WZ-120-1 FT: ~5k damage!

Almost never play this vehicle these days but pulled it out on a whim today. Got matched up with tier 9 tanks on Studzianki – Standard battle and almost immediately lost half my HP playing ‘scout’ due to our scouts being dumb. Go figure?

Came down to my, a Bourrasque, and an asshole in an AE Phase I (he whined about the scouts and redline camped until nearly the end).

11 Years of World of Tanks: Well Deserved Rewards

This year’s well-deserved reward ‘free’ tank has left the community feeling let down. I don’t know why; these tanks are usually not that great, in my opinion.

I haven’t yet played the new tank, a tier 5 Russian heavy tank based on the KV series: The KV-1A.

It’s got a KV-220-2 turret on tier 6 KV-1S hull but with a 76mm auto-reloader (76 mm ZiS-5A). The gun can fire APCR (120 pen, 110 damage), APCR (premium) (150 pen, 110 damage), and HE (38 pen, 164 damage).

The gun carries 5 rounds with a intra-clip reload of 2.3 seconds.

The tank is slow AF and has poor ground resistances making it feel even slower than the rated top speed of 43 forward/13 reverse.

The tank comes with five 100% crew members...

Asshole of the day for 6 May 2022: purplethumb

I made a new friend today, an obvious account reset/reroll player from a clan called PRPLE (Purple Team).

The guy’s name is PurpleThumb. Account created on Monday, October 4, 2021 with 3043 battles to date.

He was running a 70% win rate but it’s already dropped to 69% since I saw him earlier today.

Tonight, the battle starts and the absolute first thing I read in the chat is this Purple guy stat shaming the player driving a Maus. The guy is running about a 46% win rate so Purple feels the need to call him outright at the start and say something like “nice 46% wr Maus” (I’m going to watch the reply to get the quote for a screenshot.

Who actually does this shit?

I mean, who ‘re-rolls’ a new account to show everyone how great a player he is? Just a piece of shit with an OP ...

Asshole of the day: M1G_T4CO_K1N9 from the M60 Jesus clan

Holy shit, I haven’t been so triggered in months (as you can see, I haven’t posted anything here in forever). But this fucking guy, a true C$@T, M1G_T4CO_K1N9 from the M60 Jesus clan was running his mouth the entire game, shitting on me for getting killed by an FV215B 183 (one-shot) and being the first one to die in the game. I was running the STRV 103 B on Abbey and tried to go down the eastern flank (along the river to provide some sniper support to the other tanks. Everyone was wiped out within the first minute as the enemy pushed down with 5 tanks. Meanwhile, motormouth had to let me know that he checked out my stats and verified that I suck.

What a giant bag of shit.

This epic hardcore gamer barely broke 1500 damage in a tier 10 battle and has a 51% WR...

yet another marathon

Wargaming has yet another marathon to “win” a free Tier 8 premium French AltProto AMX 30 medium tank.

I fucking hate these marathons.

This new tank has an apparent retail price of $91.07 USD if you want to skip the marathon and get to driving this new tank.

They bundle so much unnecessary shit in the price like 6 days of premium, 1.2mil credits, and personal reserves… I guess you can’t just buy the tank, right?

After completing 1st challenge the cost decreases to $81.95

After completing challenge stage 2: 72.85

Next up: 63.74 – still way too pricey for me..

40% brings it down to 54.63 – getting a little more reasonable.

at 50%, I can pick up this hot trash for $45.52

Finally, 60% off. I can choke down $36.42 if I really have to. And I persevere.

Today i...

Advent Calendar 2021-2022

Day 1 – Starting on December 1st with the ‘wonderful’ tier 8 HWK 30

Presented to me at 5,185 gold or $23.92 USD

I’ve got the HWK but I can’t say I’ve played it more than a handful of times. Not a light tank player and it doesn’t fit my normal ‘scouting’ style. I would pass on this one.

Day 2 – German tier 8 heavy – Lowe

Cash: $42.29 (15% off), Gold 9,775

You know this one is kind of a sleeper. I used to hate it but the thing is steady. You know? Reliable? I like it but rarely play it. Might recommend.

Day 3 – German tier 8 light leKpz M 41 90 mm

Cash: $28.17. gold 6,100 gold

Its day has come and gone. I would pass on this. It was fun a few years ago but there are so many better options now.

Day 4 – American tier 8 TD TS-5

9100 gold ...
