So with the new 1.0 update I went out and splurged 1200 bucks on a New puter as the old one could not even run this game past 9 fps ..much to my surprise this thing barely gets into the game and it keeps crashing...locking up and practically everything else but plays...full Hd downloaded and its well above the minimum requirements needed to play this...so what gives?

 

Windows 10 Home 64bit

 Acer amd quad core A10 9700 APU 

16 gig DDR4 ram

2 gig radeon video card R7 430

2 TB drive 

any help on why this keeps crashing all the time...10 to 20 launches and then the thing might work for a bit then crashes again...been launching in reset graphics mode just to play...launch in safe mode just gives me white screen...card has updated drivers and even when I get to play the settings on game are at minimum settings with dynamic off as well as everything else..I am no game guru nor do I want to be just to play a freaking tank game online...if you are expecting new players to join with top of the line puters you will be lacking in the lineup....If anyone can assist here it then thanks in advance but snide remarks are only showing your maturity to others that see you in this game

Your best bet is to return the computer using whatever consumer protection laws you have in your country.

"2 gig radeon video card R7 430"

I don't think that's gonna run wot very well. (Even with a 1060 6gb i can't run WoT on max with everything on, i load in late a few games in a session with grass and other stuff turned off. And to be honest most of the special effects are pointless and too intensive)

You could do better building your computer with better specs far cheaper than buying one off the shelf. Either use guides on the Internet or get a friend to help you with it.

The facepalm isn't that significant without further elaboration

 

A10 9700 APU is a horrible CPU, that it is even slower than Intel's Sandy Bridge (core i 2xxx series)

https://us.hardware....920x1080-medium

 

It has 4 cores but more like 2 modules of 2 cores each, and has a pathetically-poor per-core performance which gets even worse when more than 1 core is used due to architecture complexities

 

R7 430 is more like a repackaged HD 8570, which is an old GCN 1st gen GPU.

https://en.wikipedia...deon_400_series

 

(For more lols, the A10 9700 APU actually has a 3rd-gen GPU. The A10 9700 APU is likely as fast as, if not faster than, the R7 430.)

https://www.reddit.c...d_gpu_hiearchy/

 

Basically you spent 1200 bucks on a computer that is slower than an Xbox One.

OP you should really have at least an i5 and GTX 1050ti (absolute minimum) or 6GB GTX 1060 (great mid range card) for gaming, especially WoT.

Wat? What res are you at? 1080p? Your 1060 should be able to hit over 60fps easily at 1080p on 1.0 with max settings.

OP, here, for $1200 I built a i5 6400, 8gb of ram, and a 6GB GTX 1060. This should max WoT at 1080p.

 

https://pcpartpicker.com/list/c6YV6s

 

Keep in mind I haven't looked at the individual reviews of every component but they're all from respectable brands so it should be good either way. You might want to do a bit more research on said parts if you decide to go with a build like that. You could also get that for cheaper if you get a lower watt & rated PSU (bronze or silver 550-600w maybe).

From memory Newegg don't ship to AU . Postage from OutletPC is a killer .  Stupid crypto miners are driving PC parts through the roof , again . TBF though the companies are price gouging so the fault rests with them .

Sig number 6 gone . In Armageddon - Day 1.  Note the date .

You're a weird mob . I'd like to go quietly into the night . I understand Mods are here to stay . I understand Mission / SH / CW rigging is here to stay .

I'll not bother the forums with these things . Let me go in peace . Not sure though why I cannot try and get cheap gold if it's ok for others to do .

Ah ok. Doesn't really matter though, I didn't mean that he should buy it online (I'd recommend just going around to your favourite PC parts store), just used that PC part picker to give him a rough idea of what components he can get at what price.

All good . Part prices in AU are just plain stupid atm . Amazon Prime will ship to AU however with dollar conversion and postage it defeats buying internationally .

OP your specs have no chance of running WoT. Like others said get a refund if you can and if you need help putting a PC together with that budget send me a PM.

Exactly. I am on 1080p but it screws up still. It gets worse if I alt-tab too.

This is feedback I can use...thank you all of you...even if it is all bad...But this brings me back to one of my original statements which in turns begs to ask...how is this game going to get new players?...I'm just some smuck that wandered across the game about a year ago and got hooked when I got tired of seeing the adverts all the time on my FB page..."repackaged junk" off the shelf should be able to run this game and not specifically for the GURU GAMERS of the planet cause I will be honest with you...There are only so many whales out there that are willing to pay for virtual crap out there and then this business model is done...They can hype the hell out of the game dynamics and virtual graphics to the next buyer but when reality sets in and the actual value of the game is realised then someone is going to be left with some dusty pockets...Not a good business model.

The business model is of a normal free to play game, except with bigger microtransactions. 

 

Honestly the only issue is the sheer volume of them we have now that are ruining the balance of the game in tier 8, along with the lack of vision when it comes to new tanks and their stats. 

A lot of good players will take 1 look at the stats of the 268 4 without even playing it and will tell you it is far too OP. HE derp gun in tier 10? Also broken. 

etc etc.

 

WG are quite happy to ignore a large proportion of the playerbase in an effort to generate revenue with the OP tank of the patch.

 

 

When it comes to graphics overhauls, this one is one of the better ones. It is fairly optimised in game, with a lot of bugs to iron out which is to be expected with a graphics engine change. I have a PC with an old GPU which runs the game decently well, you should probably do research before you buy pre-built PCs since generally they prey on uninformed customers to sell them overpriced junk. 

Given a budget, there are plenty of people everywhere that would help pick out parts for you or critique a pre-built PC.

hey not gonna try to be the PC master geek here, (also not trying to promote irregular stuff) but you can try to overclock your GPU, there are a plenty of videos/articles of how to safely overclock an specific GPU without damaging your mother board, you could end up solving these crashing issues that could be related to some megabites of video ram not being well allocated. Do it at your own risk though, i wouldnt recommend this action for someone with only basic PC knowledge.

 

Also my PC is 5 years old and have a GTX750ti and is running wot at 60FPS (because of the frame caps) in the higher end of graphic settings. Without crashing.

What if I told you, Intel with integrated graphics can run this game.

 

In fact Intel integrated graphics (GT2) is half as fast as your GPU in terms of FLOPs, however your CPU is so poor that the CPU becomes the bottleneck.

'repackaged junk' can run the game, but as with all things there is a limit to how junky the junk can be. My mate plays on a HD 6670, albeit lowest settings at a lower framerate. World of Tanks is actually one of the easier games to run on the market, would you believe it.

Overclocking your discreet GPU (i.e, a 750ti) won't damage the motherboard. Overclocking is good though but most graphics cards are already overclocked from factory (if you have an aftermarket brand like MSI, EVGA, Gigabyte, Asus, etc). Because of that though it doesn't always give a huge improvement squeezing another 60mhz out of a card. Also different cards overclock differently so some might benefit more (you will be able to push the oc higher) than others of the exact same brand. Others overclock worse, it's a bit of a gamble when buying a card.

ASRock z87

gtx 770

 

and runs ok. While streaming I dip below what i’d Like sitting at ~24 FPS 

im hoping upping to a 1070 should help in that regard unless any of you guys have some tips for me :) 

 

i do have ave to play on medium settings atm though.
