I'm glad Neokai will finally get his Dicker max that he missed out on in the hard working tournament as he was one token off but others who didn't even try for it and went out and then complained they didn't get it in time dont deserve this discount. It seems working hard on tournaments rather pointless if a fortnight later same tanks are 30% off.

Theres a diff between 100% and 30% off. Its...70%.

I'm not good at this game, its just that the rest of the server sucks~

True but then you cant swap crewmen into them without penalties. That's why they have prem tanks. Mind you a lot of the crew skills we grind for a pretty useless like dead eye i mean 3 damn % whereas i believe the xbox version is 30% more modules and crew damaged in crit hits.

 

How long does it take to accumulate 6 mil credits for a tier 10 anyway? I could never accumulate that profit so i had to go for bargains of 29% off creds and gold all the time. :(

On a premium account I can average 60k profit on a T8 premium. 100 games.

So i guess you dont ever fire gold rounds or have prem food consumables or get the slightest bit of damage which must be hard as you like playing LTs right?

I get damaged, but a good T8 prem game will gross 100k+ credits. Take out ammo, standard consumables and repairs and the normal net is about 60k. On a standard account you're looking at about 40k. I am on a standard account.

If you are getting many 100k cred games to get your tier 10 then it must be frustrating for you seeing that huge loss each time after battle on dropping your prem acct. Ever thought of renewing it?

Free account, good game. 67k profit on a standard account. The 100k profit games are the ones I miss.

That was a good game in your lowe mostly hull down under the ridges and lucky that idiot LT crashed into you because he could have damaged your rear. How often do you play these days because you've been on that 25 k mark for ages now. Maybe you've moved on from fo4 to scorn or agony. Personally WOT is the best tank game though as they make the tank's maneuverability more realistic than the other 2 rival tank ones not worth mentioning that virtually stole Wgs ideas. However wot is experiencing the power creep with others having more and varied maps now that wot seems hell bent on destroying its variety. In addition i cant see how lts will survive with the new spotting mechanics in 9.16 especially since wg got rid of many scout maps too.

 

I could see in your lowe you only used standard amo so that saved you but then if you were playing with tier 10s you would have to waste gold amo and not get much of a profit.

 

I can tell you're in rural nsw but must be close to qld because your ping ranges from 120 to 160 and have to aim more than say Circon who can snap shot straightaway because of 20 ms ping. 

 

Equipment also costs a lot of creds and now with just 30% off instead of 50% i could only afford only more equipment piece and that would mean not having as much prem amo in reserve.

What is your ping then Ezz? 7 kms from the Sydney Central Business district would still be in the sydney 'regional' metropolitan area but Goulburn or Wagga would be rural. 

Rural: In, relating to, or characteristic of the countryside rather than the town.

"remote rural areas"

 

Regional includes all of the towns, small cities and areas that lie beyond the major capital cities

 

I was trying to be polite and diplomatic as I couldn't remember if feet said Sydney ie in or near CBD which is unlikely as I remember you saying ezz you had to do a charity run in nsw bushland and was near feets backyard which looks bushy area beyond his parrot cages ie rural.

 

If anyone does live in rural nsw then i would imagine the ping would be even slower to a small degree as its further away than people closer to sydney where i presume our pickup is?? Maybe i'm wrong here because I know we dont have a general server but is there some main base in sydney to ping from?  If not then that would mean people in rural nsw would get the same ping as people right in the Sydney central business district.

Regardless Ezz do you find you have to aim longer as you cant snapshot like Circon with 20 ms?

Damn this message repeated so how do i delete one of my posts so i can get rid of this repeat please. Im going in 'edit post' but cant see delete post. Can't you delete your own posts like youtube? I know you can remove pictures like battle results screenshots to save pixel space in 'manage attachments' in settings but it doesnt seem i cant delete my actual text post entirely,  as just deleting all the words will only default it back to the same post again. HMM.

Bro... on my ping i just auto aim and pray...

 

130 - 150ms for me. I think the big latency jump is between mainland AU and SG, so most aussies are stuck with it.

 

And feet's nearish sydney. He's a ways out, but not really rural per se.

Wait, that is spray-and-pray levels of ping now?

 

Turns out that all this time I've been playing the game wrong with all the aiming and stuff.

Does autoaiming somehow make the ping faster or does it avoid the ping server issue by somehow directly hitting what you are looking at not what the server will dish up to you??

I read something like this before so please explain.Ezz mttspii or someone?

Auto aiming means your tank on the server, is aiming at their tank on the server. That means that while you still contend with ping when pulling the trigger, you should actually be aiming at centre mass (presuming your turret traverse can keep up with tank movements)

 

Autoaiming removes those shots where you are swinging your gun around and you pull the trigger when your reticle falls over their tank, only to find the shell goes off a 10 degrees angle because while your gun on your client is pointing at them, on the server it isn't yet. 

 

Note, clicking autoaim and watching your gun swing round and pulling the trigger too early won't help, you still see your gun as rendered by the client, but when you know how to use it, it helps with lagging guns.
