now that is fully upgraded the Jagdpanther looks like a midget with a huge fucking erection
i have a fully upgraded tiger II and i regret every minute of grind for it.
its a horrible game.
This is now a war thunder thread
are russian tanks overpowered ?
russian ammo was known for duds
and the crew ran away on sight of a tiger
I see you blocked out your in-game name again because you are a coward or an autist
You'll WoT cowards don't even have your own bernd clan.
Why do you still play this piece of shit and not War Thunder?
bumping perhaps the most important thread on page 2
The jumbo is a up armored sherman with a ridiculous thick turret
t34 go HEY A FREE KILL
then they shoot and SHIT ITS A JUMBO
and then they die
=BERND= pride worldwide
WoT > WT
>are russian tanks overpowered
The game was developed in Russia, what do you think?
They are overpowered on T2 and T5.
The Germans are overpowered on T3 and T4.
Americans just suck.
No i quit playing some time ago
Game is totally rigged
I think the outcome is decided by modifiers before the game even starts
can i be part of bernd squad? I am shit at tonks but i can fly plane good. I have no active warthunder frends anymore
>t34 go HEY A FREE KILL
Yes, that's a free kill.
Tell us your ingame name
I can approve you on saturday at best, but there still are officers
Not easy to hit
Even harder when you are hulldown
A 30cm spot on a plate that's autobounce even for the Panther's gun.
>are Russian tanks OP
No, they just have the best armor and best alpha damage.
Damn, I didn't even knew that there is a clan.
You make me want to install again but I know that I quit again after a few games.
I used to play War Thunder but I stopped a while ago because I've been too busy lately. Last time I checked they nerfed the Hellcat's speed.
The hellcat was the death of 5.0 games. The bad thing is that the nerfs meant to hit it also hit other tanks.
dropped this shit 3 years ago
the times of T29 raping everyone up to lvl9 were fun though
WoT is much better now
How do i join Bernd WT clan?
I knew when that thing would be added that it would become so meta that it would rule the game.
Paper armor that dies to .50 cal maybe, but the things can cap points before anyone else, and in good hands can rule a game. I wrecked with it.
Even the tank maps in RO2 are better than WoT, and they're an afterthought. Why do you enjoy playing this, Bernd?
yea the gun is weak
but you got the armor to tank
hull down you can stop a entire swarm on enemy tanks
WoT is fucking shit now. All my tanks that used to be fun are absolute garbage now.
Menu > Squadron > Search for 'Bernd' > apply
you;ll cowards dont even play on lowest settings for max fps on shitty overheating laptop
also, is there bernd clan? but not the kind where they make you join twice a week for clan wars and other such obligatory bullshit, i got 3 tier 10s to help
tfw I gotta do 2k dmg to TDs but as soon as I have chance to shoot at TD it evaporates due to arty fire or other teammates fire.
The Tiger has its only reliable counters on 6.3/6.7, the Jackson and the IS-2 obr. 44.
I was really surprised at how well the thing did when I first got it. the 88 gun it uses wasn't the Pak43 that's used on the Jagpanther, so it had shorter range, but with proper positioning it could take out almost anything.
The problem I had was more with German teams not moving out of spawn and therefore losing the match due to their camping.
Yeah, the nazibunker mene is there for a reason sadly.
The Tiger is the best 5.7 tank with no doubt though. It can angle like hell and has infinite autobounce zones on the "flat" front.
Much of it is that German teams don't fully understand the role of the Tiger. It may be slow moving, but it was still designed as a breakthrough tank, which means that it was intended to spearhead armor advances towards and objective.
That means advancing and stopping only to support other Tigers on targets at range.
Leave the German TDs to defend against an enemy advance.
t. KV-1S player
And the Germ TDs are damn good at that job.
Can't wait for more glass cannons or Sturmpanzers.
I went German TDs before heavy tanks.
Most German tanks are shit though, it has nothing to do with how they are balanced, but rather their fundamental design flaws.
The only German tanks that I found to be worthwhile were the Jagdpanther, the Tiger, and Hetzer. The PzIV shows it's obsolescence and the Panther does not at all make up for it as a replacement.
The Sherman was much better than any German tank I played, but the thing hits a brick wall against German heavy tanks until you get the 76mm variants.
Who here plays BOTES
I do but I'm tired of getting torpedoed by my teammates because they are fucking retarded.
you get some exceptional retards then because that happened to me maybe once.
I played during Closed Beta and got to Tier 8
I really have no motivation to grind all over again
me in the chat tab
I did, but then my computer died and I couldn't rek the noobs underestimating the jap cruisers. ;_;
This game is rigged as shit, the developers admit it, and their forums are full of trolls. (plus WG got in trouble for having employees propagandizing and libeling War Thunder on War Thunder's forums).
warthunder was doing the same
Top kek, doeas anyone still play this shit? I play since 2010 and have shitton of tank in the hangar, can I sell it somehow? And why do you still play this?
WoWs is pretty nice so far as far as game itself goes.
But theres that massive bullsgit that the Royal Navy will be the fifth navy introduced, after USN, IJN (already in-game), Kriegsmarine and Soviet Navy (coming autumn).
They they just became better at hiding it
Old players remember those invulnerability moments.
Where you or the enemy tank just wont die.
I want to play WT.
Tell me what nations tanks are best!
I've heard heavies suck because they are not fast enough later.
Is it like in wot, where all German tanks have paper armor?
Are Russian tanks made from Stalinium?
There will be much pain until you reach panther or tiger
Well I'd say so.
Wasn't the Royal Navy bigger than any other Navy at the start of the war?
And what did the Kriegsmarine ever do apart from losing the Bismarck and massive submarine shenanigans?
>One of the most anticipated navies
>Let's implement it as the last.
Is there are nations that is with less pain?
Are russians better?
How about US? I don't like their tanks though, Sherman and Pershing are boring.
U-boots sunk plenty large Allied surface ships.
Also the first tiers in WoWs are WW1 ships.
Can you play a submarine in WoWs?
Kein U-boots. They would massively mess up the game.
No and Wargaming stated submarines dont fit game meta so will never be in.
russian is the easiest
murika got a very good tier3 combo
with the jumbo m18 and that AA truck with combined cannon and machineguns
>not liking WoT
Oh and that AA truck loaded up with frag and incendiary you will get 6-7 kills each game
assuming your on the losing side and the enemy teams got points to spend on planes
>Are Russian tanks made from Stalinium?
Russian tanks fucking suck until you get to tierIV.
stop talking about WT
this is a WoT thread
Never understood people who play that crappy game.
I never understood bydlo too.
Why is wargaming always keeping the Ger-man down?
German navy is only good at u boating and they don't implement it.
German tanks are only good at very long range and they force every engagement to under 600m thanks to engine limitations.
German planes are only good at CAS and WoWp doesn't have that.
WoT is nice. Missions are shit though. Ruin my wn8. I did the arti missions for the first two sets recently and it took me ca 100 games with an average wn8 of 600.
Not if you go for the StuG life
I already did first two sets of missions and am now taking it easy, feels good man. I skipped arty altogether.
T28 is pretty much OP versus most of what it faces but slightly boring to play.
fuck this fucking baler
Jap ships are very good?
hard to say yet as that's tier 5 (my highest), but it's a peice of shit, turrets cant keep up with a sharp turn (and it turns like a battleship).
Very good. Especially glorious jap carriers.
is there a trailer for that game? I wanna see them ships firing
You want this right? too bad here grind for you!
Also I can already unlock Myoko but will rather spare free xp for upgrades.
Depends on class and tier, but generally USN and IJN ships are pretty matched. IJN cruisers have weaker armour but have torpedos, IJN DDs have better torps but USN DD turrets can tear them to pieces, and so on.
Though stock battleships are usually pure suffering, the tier 6 Fuso stock has 13km range, enemy BBs just keep distance and tear you to pieces (upgraded version has 22km).
theres millions of gameplay videos, tried to screenshot a full salvo here but only the first two is visible
That game for retards.
Did that too, but skipping a tree means 20% less waifus. And arti tree is really easy. Took me ~100 games in 2 days for stug and htc while doing the GW panther stock grind.
wot has become pretty decent lately and WT matchmaking is rigged as fuck
I just tried this game.
So much disappointment. I understand that WG games are basically silly arcades for small children, but could they at least make sounds more realistic, ship moving, turning sinking, explosion and shots look like in Silent Hunter? All ships are practically silent, this is so weird. Ships themselves look okay I guess, but water is meh and sea is always too calm. Silent Hunter 3 was years ago and still it have more interesting looking water and waves and weather.
Can't wait for War Thunder warships.
WG games are notorious for having shitty audio except for the music which is decent(still I got on 0 volume).
When I installed engine and gun sound mods I was like "holy fuck is this even the same game? It feels so much better now".
Guies eggsblain carriers in WoWs plox.
This seriously tempted me until I heard there are no subs. What I've seen from gameplay video is that is basically like playing Warship Gunner 2 against human opponents (that are as retarded as WS2's AI).
>You'll WoT cowards don't even have your own bernd clan.
Is there even in point to clans in WT?
In WoT you have to manage your clan base and fight other clans for territory control on the world map.
>until I heard there are no subs
Subs ruined warships warfare, why would they add subs?
If you turn the music to zero ambient sounds will become very noticeable, say the engine actually sounds like it should so does turrets firing.
>sea is always too calm
Wargaming says they'll introduce weather, night battles etc., its only in beta.
Carriers play bit like RTS, you can move the ship around but itself is hopeless against enemies. CVs carry fighters, torp planes or dive bombers as consumables, a wing is 4-5 planes and have reserves (see pic).
You play in this tactical sort of top-down view, order wings to go here, defend this ship, attack this. The only thing so far you can involve yourself is manually setting torp plane attacks like in pic (game can do this automatically but its useless against non-retards).
I think carrier game is meh as it is but some updates and changes are promised to make it more interesting and less so automatic.
Subs are perfect for killing BBs, carriers and tankers, and that's why they're awesome.
PS fuck BdU and whoever designed the magnetic influence detonators.
And thats exactly why they won't be introduced to the game, the swarm of planes of high tier CVs can already be overwhelming, even though its realistic how aerial power rapes surface units.
They could get rendered useless by semi-intelligent DD/CA/CL players coordinating with a CV though, especially because you can't go past 7/8 knots while submerged. And going that fast while submerged is suicide since you make a lot of noise.
This game is incomparable with Silent Hunter, forget about. Gameplay is very simplistic and ships mechanic is very arcade like. Maybe it is fine for multiplayer experience, but I got bored with it very fast. Literally no immersion and atmosphere at all.
bumply reminder for bernds to join =BERND= squadron in war thunder
2% until first mark
Now that I'm almost out of fish I get the same convoy contact as before again, another convoy contact and a task force? How typical of you, Silent Hunter. At least chasing the task force was the right choice, I guess.
I just bought a BT7 in WT.
How is it better than the Bt5?
It has the same gun.
I also have unlocked the Leopard 1 in WoT but I am 3 million monies short.
Leopar 1 is really nice
but since I already had the 13 90 I decided to make the new AMX 30 line
I wonder what's better Amx30 or Leo1.
Because I have the 1390, too and don't know if I should go for bat chat or amx30
Leopard 1 is still the overall best
STB-1 has great depression and it's amazing in ridge lines
AMX30b is pretty much as good as the Leopard 1 but with diferent tweaks
Not all tanks are better
you just have to grind them to get to the next
It's fucking fast
>war thunder thread
>are russian tanks overpowered ?
No. Tbere were shermans and other shit-tanks underpowered in reality.
>t. KV-1S player
КВАС как танк?
After the sloping changes T-34s need uptiering though, and T5 is bias mode
Since Germany is overpowered at 3 and 4 it's a little more level.
Also at 4.7 there's a brutally strong TD line-up for the Krauts, Hetzer, JPzIV and StuG III G just slaughter the opposition.
Unless it's a jumbo.
What game is that?
World of Warships
Now I have played a few games, I have a T-50 and my tanks get penetrated 100% of the time and 60% of the time everyone in my turret is dead.
I have a lot of onehits kills, but often I need several penetrations, on a T34 it tool several hits in the back of the turret even when it said I penetrated everytime.
Now how can the German tanks be OP?
Are they hard to penetrate?
Also their guns are railguns. Compare the IS-1 to the Tiger, it is pathetic.
I have t-43 and I had Tiger I, but i sold it because i didn't like it.
When will WoWs be released?
but after the end of the open beta everybody will lose their ships, right?
I hope not.
Please tell me if that's true.
Actually, they already recieving money for WoWs and sell premium ships so I doubt it.
Using a light tank you have to flank
This is done by reading the map and the flow of the game.
maps like poland and kursk dont give you a lot of options but the jungle map and the open wood map does
or tag a long a bigger tank that will soak up the fire
I hope that there will be a wipe it would really annoying to see people who start with t10 ships just because they had access since closed beta.
But the gun on the IS really had a weak propellant charge compared to the Tiger.
In WOT there is no noticeable difference.
I was already doing that from the beginning.
Felt very proud when I appeared on the flank of 5 tanks snuffed them all before they knew what's going on.
But I guess they were noobs.
It gets harder by time when people learn the good camping spots and angles
But you are in a low tier and should have plenty left to exploit the maps
> Now how can the German tanks be OP?
Germans have "The Railgun" F2 and Stug with the same gun.
Warthunder is shit
Here is your reply
F2 is worse than any of the t-34 or shermans.
It's best of tier 2.
Hello, don't mind me, just shattering your sky :D
this is true
>cutting out your name
I don't want to draw attention to myself :D
How much to the T92? that is a real ground shaker.
checkedy check those laurels
That's why you are posting?
That's pretty hypocritical
>Arty without BiA
Isn't that retarded?

WarGayming will do everything to boost soviet shit and place other techincs (especially german) in a shitty dispostition.
Historical battles - soviet union suck cocks without 5v1 ratio. - Historical battles canceled.
Opposition battles (nation vs nation):
Germans and Americans were fucking soviet (even upped via "hurr durr bluprint uber canon") in an every possible way. Yep, it's canceled.
What do you have - counter strike on a tanks with soviet propaganda.
(Hurr durr we won't remove "for the Stalin!" tank marks because IT'S HISTORY and ban for every implying on reich symbols)
And all those actions 75 years of throwing meat under Kursk or other.
Yep, I'm butthurting but I can't stand with that kind of bullshit.
You sound even more Nazi than we Germans, geez.
Are there gamemodes which disable the outdoor vision for tanks? Normally tanks had horrible visions through their optics, and here you seem to see always everything
retard hohol with commie mentality.
they are making money obviously, which is the main reason why you fight tanks that are 2 levels above you in random, a much bigger problem.
tank games is only popular in russia and cis, no one else in world gives two shits about tanks.
russians do becouse on genetical level it reminds them of horse archery in vast steppes.
closed beta ships were wiped but I doubt they will wipe open beta ones, there are all ready premium ships plus the IJN and USN lines are complete.
It doesn't affect you in any way that some peopel play at T10 already, you wont meet them until you reach t7-8.
WT and WoT are not serious simulation games.
I wish WT had such mode though.
> you wont meet them until you reach t7-8
When I reach t7-8 there will be lots of players with t10
There will be people grinding the upcoming German, Russian, British etc. lines.
battle tanks t34 vs tiger is a REAL tanksim
I've heard that Steel Fury is better.
t. currently downloading Steel Fury
here is some gameplay
with external camera enabled
Isn't Operation Flashpoint a better tank sim than both WT and WOT?
OP, the 88mm gun is the better of the two to use overall
nah, my best game was with the 10cm almost 5k damage
my best game is the with the 88mm, nearly 5k damage
well its a sim
enjoy your tanks with health bars
my highest damage in the game was nearly 8k in the t30
too slow and needs a good hull down position
This is a tank
Why battleships in WoWs miss so much?
Why waste time playing this arcadish pay to win garbage on shities game engine ever made with retarded grind if there is War Thunder, a game better in every single thing
My Panther onehits every single Russian tank. learn to aim and Russian tanks will not be a problem.
Also stay away from arcade its garbage
And Panther oneshotting tanks is a good thing?
GF balance is all over the place.
With Russian tanks you have to flank.
The soviet mediums are faster than their contemporaries, so their strength is in avoiding direct confrontation by rolling around the enemy using hills and vegetation as cover.
German tanks are strongest near open areas where they can use range to their advantage.
American tanks use hills or cities, but especially rolling hills.
Because the guns will get inaccurate beyond 10 Kilometers.
What is the purpose of upgrading when everyone else upgrades too?
I won't play war thunder because ultra slav is still a thing.
Reminder that the Soviet Union fielded IS-2 and T-54 exclusively in 1945.
Game is of maximum Realism.
That is the way they found to balance battleships vs cruisers.
Battleships do massive damage and have very long range while cruisers shoot faster and have more accuracy.
You usually want to get closer with battleships to get in range of your secondary guns, after a certain tier (I think over Fuso in IJN) your secondaries completely rip cruisers.
I absolutely hate that shot too and wish they would man up and just add the fucking bushes as permanent. Still better than WoT though.
BBs also seem to be pretty helpless against destroyers, at least on low tiers.
>88mm pens the side and front of a T-34
>shots go wide at basically meelee range
War Thunder is more realistic than that.
>fielded IS-2 and T-54 exclusively in 1945.
Well nazis have Leopard, a tank made in what? 1965 vs IS4 from 1949?
Matchmaking depends on battlerating of the vehicle, it's not historic.
So late WW II tanks can meet vehicles from the Russian future.
This is a picture of me flying my F4 after my Tiger II was killed.
You can see a Mig 9 in the background. Luckily he wasn't interested in me for some reason.
The difference is that the Leopard has no armor, so anything can easily kill it from any range and angle, while T-54 are invulnerable from the front, can penetrate everything, and are faster than the heavy German tanks they meet when they get downtiered.
Reminder that Germany only fielded Panthers and Tigers in 1944 by the time they had already lost.
Why are you using the regular MM and not set historical matches?
Tiger I was already there in '42.
Tiger II production started in '43.
History is unbalanced in tank warfare, so I fundamentally agree with ahistorical matchmaking.
Their current one is pretty bad to the point where historical would actually work better for planes though, and they are too stubborn to even admit that. For tanks, the main issue is that there's no weighted matchmaking. You can deal with T-54 in a Tiger II, and with Tiger I if you're in a Sherman, but not when it's an entire team of superior tanks versus an entire team of inferior tanks. Then you just get slaughtered. And that happens way too often, because people flock to certain tanks that are performing well and that means that shit tanks in the battlerating range of these machines constantly fight very unfair battles.
There's also issues with certain mechanics missing from the game (overmatching is not there, a 150mm AP shell will be deflected by tinfoil if the angle is flat enough), american 76mm shells being underperforming and Russian 85mm shells having twice as much HE filler as they historically had (and thus extremely lethal after armor effects).
Yep not to mention different planes were used for different objectives. most people who complain about muh historical accuracy in pub auto matchmaking games are stupid.
If you want historical accuracy join RP guilds who play realistic battles all the times with specific missions and objectives
Yeah, bombers and heavy fighters are cancer in the game, because 90% of the game is about fighting enemy fighters, and they just suck at that.
Same can be said to a lesser degree about ground vehicles that were designed for infantry support.
I did well with some heavy fighters
I thought heavy fighters are good at destroying fighters. Aren't they faster and better armed?
No, they are slower and less agile.
They're designed to attack bombers or unarmored ground targets.
They were designed to outrun single engine fighters.
The designers just sucked at their job.
>Why can't I club Shermans and T-34s this game blows
