    Found a way to decrypt/read the game files most likely.
    They're not really that hard to read, someone made mod tools to read the XMLs properly, they show the armor values and pretty much everything you need to know about the tank.

    Then there's a model viewer which apparently shows the armor groups (values are in the XML file). I'm not really willing to try it because that website doesn't look reliable, someone get a VM.

    Shermans were famous for lighting on fire (hence the name "Tommy Cookers")
    I was actually really disappointed at how little Shermans caught on fire when I first started playing this game. I've only ever seen 2 Shermans catch fire in the entire time I've played this game. In real life, if a German kid threw a rock at the side of a sherman it would catch on fire and ammo rack itself. How did Wargaming mess that up?

    I saw a T92 run up to a tracked E-100 the other day and kill him in a single AP shot.

    That shit is horrifying.

    Nope, it's 15% lower repair cost.
    Hmm.. are you positive?

    Doesn't really help the way they laid out that table, confusing.

    Just use + - why they had to have green,red, + and - I never know

    *Edit*

    Ah, they amount is green now... i could have sworn the repair was -15% in red.

    Hmm, I don't know if I should give another go at the IS. I have it researched and have an 83% crew ready for it, but the grind for the 122mm made me uninstall WoT the last time I tried because I got so angry at the matchmaking.

    The grind to the 122 wasn't hard at all...

    Edited:

    Then again, I did the grind on the KV-1S. Why didn't you get the 122 on your old tank?

    Because I got to the IS from the KV-13 medium tank. Do you have any advice on what to upgrade first on the IS? That would be greatly appreciated.

    I have researched the radio, 100mm gun and the second turret already, so I just need the tracks, engine and 122mm gun. What should I get first?

    I'll probably sell my T-34/100 to get money and garage space for the IS if I decide to try again.

    Why research the 100mm? Also, see if you can mount the 122 without the tracks. If you can, then go for the 122mm. If you can't, go for the tracks.

    Just had a match on fishing bay where I went to the middle in my slugger and hoped for the best, right as I reached the first building a t-34-85 appeared with the intention to ruin my day.
    It really looked like I was fucked untill I turned around and fired one shot at him, AMMO RACKED.

    Really love doing that.

    I was having a pretty horribly bad luck in WoT tonight.

    Then an IS-3 oneshot-ammoracked my KV-5 (it rarely even gets DAMAGED, let alone getting killed in single shot).

    I think the game is very clearly telling me I shouldn't play today.

    He probably means he already had the 100mm researched from the T-34-85/100.

    Past few months i've had the feeling I shouldn't play until 7.2 is out. I've been listening very well so far. A game here or there but those games are usually shit and just confirms I should wait

    Prem T34 is pretty fun. It's not as good as other T8 heavies which is fine because it's a premium tank, but it has a god killer gun and can hull down easily with its impenetrable turret and great depression. It's slow though. I'm gonna buy it in the future.

    Edited:

    And it makes shitloads of dosh

    How is it in Test #3?

    They nerfed it pretty bad in Test #2, I hope they buffed the turret traverse at least.

    Edited:

    Oh god they nerfed it even more

    • Turret traverse is the same (18 deg, same as the Hellcat)
    • Traverse speed is now 22 deg (was 25 in test #1 and 24 in test #2)
    • RoF got nerfed to 4 RPM (was 4.58 in test #1 and 4.18 in test #2)

    First teamkill yesterday. Panzer 4 was facehugging a friendly Sherman and fucking him up. I happened to be nearby in my KV and thought "oh, I should kill the Panzer and help out." I guess I shot too close to the Sherman or something, though, because the HE splash killed the Sherman too. I felt pretty bad about it.

    word of the wise: Never fire HE 152's near team mates, ever. When I was in my SU-152 with the 152, I lobbed an HE at an enemy KT, the shell landed under or behind him and it took off a ton of health from him, killed an M4, and tracked a passing T-50. 152 HE's are brutal.

    I am probably really horrible but I feel no remose after intentional teamkills and if I unintentionally teamkill somebody, I usually laugh it off, although I apologize.

    Prem T34's gun is almost as accurate as the long 88.

    0.34 (88) vs 0.35 (120) in 7.2 stats.

    Playing it like a TD is the best option

    Ran out of credits, decided to do a single run in my IS-3, hoping not to die so I could get some credits.

    I got oneshot by a rushing IS-7.

    ooh haha this shit is hilarious. i took my scouting tank and rammed right into the side of a maus, and just kept pushing him in circles while an artillery shot at him.

    also apparently the valentine can take a direct heavy artillery shot and have it "bounce off"

    I'm horrified at what effects the T34 is gonna have on tier 5-6 matchmaking though. There are 20844 players who have a T34 in their garage on the EU server. Once all of those turn premium.. don't ever think of having a T5-6 match in your T5-6 tank again. Add another 20844 M103s into the tier 8 pool, and the problem becomes even bigger.

    Because getting a new tank means you should be punished


    Kind of like shelling out 100k exp and 2.8m credits for a T32 so you can use the 90mm again with no hull-down capabilities!
