Thanks for the help.
That was crazy. Tough battle. Then to come from behind, and off a cliff with 60 some HP leaving only an arty.

I believe my old zoom mod is still working well. I just transferred it over from my 8.2 folder.

My old zoom mod never worked correctly. It zoomed out appropriately in game, but it had a weird glitch that caused it to zoom out all the way when my tank would die & I would have to spend like 30 seconds scrolling to get back to where I could see enough to help my platoon mates. Then again, another solution to this problem could be "don't die".

so I played a couple rounds in my GWPanther just now. They musta really fucked us arty. Not hitting anything. And I'm sober.(ish).

this last map 10 shots, 1 hit for 309 damage
and that is waiting until it's zoomed in.

anyone else having bad results?

I played some last night with Standstrong and Switchblade. Tried out the Chinese tanks, at one time I had a guy dead to rights, take my shot, and I get the message..."It bounced off!" What the hell? Point blank on a M2 and it bounces off?

Question

Good question Sam...

Apparently the entire World of Tanks community (with over 1000 battles) breaks down as:
< 600 9.47%
600 - 900 43.94%
900 - 1200 33.37%
1200 - 1500 10.99%
1500 - 1800 1.98%
> 1800 0.25%


Pulling us up side by side in my iphone App:

I've won 1200 and lost 1176 = 50% (27 draws)
You've won 1025 and lost 924= 52% (20 draws)
Conclusion: You win more than me.

I've hit 53% and you've hit 56%
Conclusion: you shoot more accurately than me.

I know when we play together you always rock...

...but somehow my efficiency is 1339 and yours is 864??? WTF?


(data pulled from: http://wot-news.com/index.php/stat/single/us )


does anyone know specifically what one should do each round to maximize efficiency?
Hitting a higher percentage and winning more doesn't seem to do it as demonstrated above.

And the biggest thing about having 6k games is more that most of us ground out the tanks the hard way. In your case you could just claim that yours is a second account as long as your efficiency and/or win rates are up, and average damage done with your tier 10 is respectable
Hey I'm still at 64.3% with my IS7!!

never mind the fact I'm still under 20 battles with it and have had some really crappy rounds with it

I'm trying to decide which Tier 10 to pursue next?

I have a Pershing - so I'm close to a Patton - that said, when I see a Patton on the field it doesn't scare me

I really really like the barrel depression in the American heavy line and the hull down opportunities that afforeds - i.e. my T34 rocks! - which points me towards an E5 - but I already have an IS7 and don't know that I want another heavy? (I went IS7 because I figure long term they'll never Nerf an iconic Russian tank)

The Bat Chat is the hot tank right now - I've still never managed to actually hit one of the fookers on the field... but lights statistically are my worst tank type

I really like hitting someone HARD - so perhaps a TD with the ability to do 700+ damage per shot but I hate not having a rotating turret?

Free XP and gold will do that for you.

You have to fight to it's strengths. It has a great gun, and a good speed - so wait for your team to engage, then flank the enemy and then snipe the enemy from their side.

It's not a brawler, so don't try and lead charges or get into one-on-one's.

Less than a Tier 10 costs?
