Tanks Still at Gamescom. Updated

Today’s gonna be outstanding and really overcrowded. Unlike all the previous expo days, today will definitely be different. Still a lot of visitors, asking questions about how to play and which key to use so as to exit the battle and those who demand buffing/fixing the E-series, nerfing Soviet tanks, improving match-making system, implementing tier restrictions for Clan Wars.
A little later today Wargaming.net is participating in a show match organized at ESL booth were we are going to oppose The Drill: Training Camp winners - German team Panzerknacker. You can follow the battles here http://tv.esl.eu starting 15.10 local time (GC Stage 1 English).

The roster is known now. We play King Tiger, Pershing, T44, SU8, Grille, Panter II, T1. Format/style is 8/42. Arty - Tier 5. Maps: Lakeville, Prokhorovka, Himmelsdorf, Steppes. Shame, there's no Malinovka on the list. :)
Start making bets on who is going to lose! Providing we do, I will truly be down and at least I’m gonna entertain myself at the community party we are having tonight. Three hours of friendly talk with nice (I hope :)) German players. If you have registered on the forum, see you around. If you haven’t… well, come anyway! We will be hanging out at Friesen Bar (Friesenstrasse 41, 50670 Köln).
Dont hesitate and drop by.
It was an epic loss, guys. I am p*** off! Now all German tanks will get nerfed for sure! :)

  7. E series are fine as they are, get skills, tanks will always have weak spots, just learn to live with it, all other tanks got realy bad weak spots, want to be immortal?

    have fun overlord, dont forget your helmet and stay near the exit door xD

  10. is4 and e75 is good as they are now, L2P.

    if anything needs fixing its increase of pen on 150 on e100 to around 260 and repair the extremly unreliable BL10.

  11. Overlord please do something about the stupid malinovka map already i`m desperate about how often this map comes into the rotation cycle.

    I think nobody was complaining about these two^^

    And yes, sry about wanting E-100 fixes in this thread,its just the thing that bugs me the most
    right now (first world problems and so)

    I was at the GC at the press day and have to say, great show and cool presentation. The new
    WoT movie (the one with the flying train ) is really great!

    Thanks also for all the goodies and the possability to check out absolutely ALL the tanks in the game with these GC-accaunts.

    Have fun and keep up the good work and keep us informed.

  13. This was hilarious:

    "This is a US heavy tank, one of the T-series of prototypes, like the T29, T30, T32 and T34, which actually never saw combat and are prototype vehicles. They perform very well..."

    BAAAAAM (T32 instakilled while KT next to it takes continuous beating))

    "Ooops.. they got flanked..." (yeah, right... lol)

    Please, pretty, pretty please... bring us the new US heavies, guys.. seriously.

  14. Two months ago, when I started to play WoT, I was angry for lack of responses from developers, but now I'm beginning to understand why they ignore all this whine posts completely. It's still the same bullshit, all the time same whine. And whats worst, all the time same questions, even when they are already answered. Players playing only one tech tree lack the common sense what is really overpowered. But listening all this "plz nerf its OP, plz buff its broken" posts, its getting annoying.

    Where there's smoke, there's fire as they say. That's called a hint. There's a problem with your game, fix it.

    And buff that 150 on the E-100 already, that thing is offensively pathetic right now.

    It's probably because they've been asked to buff American and German tanks, or nerf Russian tanks to balance the game out now for months and they refuse to do so. So that's why you see the same thing over and over. Just like how the IS4 is still sitting there untouched at T9 yet we all know, including WG, that it's wildly OP for it's tier. It's a 9.75Tier tank. And it's not getting moved until next year. But the Maus and T30 start doing better than the IS-7 and then they get wacked with the nerf bat immediately. And, the 704 is blowing away the Jagdtiger now for months, and nothing is done, nothing.

    That's why people complain and say the same thing, because these guys don't do squat to fix a problem when it's not for their agenda.

  29. So .. no new US heavies or significant US update? .. guess I'll take a break for some time and come back after patch 8.(whatever)...

    If you would at least give us rocket artillery .. T34 Calliope would be a lot more fun than shitty T-29 Heavy series with buggy cannons and shitty designs. (well except for T32 .. this one is a beauty but with a nerfed gun)

    Blah whatever .. I'll be back .. see ya in some time .)

  30. That was a pretty epic loss for the WG team. XD even when the Executive joined, they got face rolled. But good matches to watch.

  31. That's the reason russian tanks are OP because otherwise they couldn't do sh.... with them. Look at WG Team's 'tactics'.

  33. Hi Overlord,

    how about a new spotting mechanic against arty similar to the one in the "Blitzkrieg" games? If a light tank is within 500 m of arty a growing circle (eg 50 m) appears on the minimap (or in arty shift view) indicating the position of the piece and allowing for somewhat effective counter arty fire.
    This would make light tank driving far more strategic and reduce the "sit around wait for one spot and let arty do its thing" gameplay in clan wars. Aditionally arty tracers would be swapped with a more realistic mechanic.

  52. this is a bit offtopic but:
    pls buff the E100
    I gave an E100 a beating with my Tiger P
    b'cause I penetrated him with my L71
    but his 150kwk bounced 3 times and just made a critical hit on me
    so pls give the E100 a penetration buff
    it is the wort T10 tank ingame

  53. stop QQ about the E100, its OP, he got armor, hp, and dmg.

    ReplyDelete
  54. hi, one OT about T25. I bought them, but seems, that there isn't any improved credit income. I have still more credits with my KV. XP didn't grow neither. yes, i damaged and destroyed tanks, so there isn't problem.
    it is bug or normal behaviour? because I heard, that premium tanks have much more credit income.
    thanks for reply

  55. E Series is OP - yes with a German on the wheel. IS 7 needs a buff - yes with a russian suiciding with it like it's a T-54.

  68. If you can't beat an E-50 with your T-54 --> LTP

    It has much more speed and at least the same ding factor.
    Even if the E-50 has Alpha Strike you can outmanoeuvre it easliy. Everything else is a question of teamplay.

  72. I play all three nations and I see no bias at all. All these whiners just don't understand the game. They want to make everything equal and that would be boring. When you think a certain nation is stronger, because it fits your playstyle better, then just play this nation. But stop asking to nerf the other "imba", "op" blabla...

    I enjoy german tanks and when they are played right, they aren't underpowered at all. The only thing that I have see so far that needs improvement is the JagdPzIV. The 8,8cm L/56 is too weak. Give him the 7,5cm L/100 or even the 8,8cm L/71 and the JagdPzIV would be fun. Right now its just a unpleasant step on the way to the excellent Jagdpanther.

  96. "For your info, its free, but ppl pay for it."

    Yes this is true, but the old saying goes, 'Caveat Emptor', or 'buyer beware'. If you are not satisfied with a product, or feel it lacks quality, do not pay for it. No one is forced. It''s not hard to pop onto the forums and research a product you wish to buy. I wouldnt buy a new car based on a picture; I know its not the same scale but the principle is the same.

    And no, it is not good for the meta-game to have over or under powered tanks, but unfortunately that is the way it is. We have to accept this fact and either not pay or willingly pay but fully understanding and accepting the flaws.

    The Devs have heard the community's outcry (how could they miss it lol), and either ignore it, will change it, or know the community is wrong. These are the only possible options or actions for them to take.

    ReplyDelete
  97. The more they ignore it the more people will leave this product behind. So no more income from them.

    If WG keeps this up World of Warplanes will result in a flop. You can scam people once, maybe twice, but not a third time.

    1. As for any large purchase, the[url=http://www.shop-yishunbike.com/]carbon MTB frame[/url] first step in buying a bicycle is to figure out what kind you are looking for.
      Here are the various types of bicycles—including the racing bike, touring bike, mountain bike, hybrids,
      and tandems. Be sure[url=http://www.shop-yishunbike.com/]26 wheel mountain bike[/url] you understand what each bike offers so you can decide what bike is best for you.
      Do not underestimate the importance of getting ysbike01 the right bike for your needs.
      You're not likely to get excited about riding an ysbike01 uncomfortable bike that can't take you where you want to go.
      A well-chosen bike, though, will make you want to ride.
      Think about what you'd like to do with [url=http://www.shop-yishunbike.com/]bicycle racing wheels[/url]
      the bike. Will it be strictly for exercise and recreation?
      For long-distance touring? For off-road riding? Would you like to get into racing?
      If you are shopping for your first bike and don't know exactly what sort of biking activity you'll enjoy most,
      it's best to get a versatile bike, such [url=http://www.shop-yishunbike.com]carbon wheels[/url]
      as a hybrid, that is suited for a number of different kinds of riding.
      Remember though, while hybrids are good for general use, their middle-of-the-road design means
      they won't be as well-suited for any one purpose as a bike designed specifically for that type of riding.
      For instance, hybrid wheels are apt to warp if subjected to the rigors of the trail.
      For that reason, many riders find mountain bikes even more versatile than hybrids.
