    AKA they don't know themselves.

    But yeah they really ought to boost the Crew Training Acceleration since it's pretty useless currently. But I guess they would rather everyone to make lots of locked exp to buy their gold for.

    Overlord also confirmed that they're planning to improve crew training in some way, but ETA 2023
    We are planning to introduce a faster and more extraordinary way to train crews in future.

    "Commander will be informed that his vehicle have been detected."

    I think this will be valuable for every tank. Even heavies.

    I wish I could afford the nerve for a Chaffee. I loved it in the test server, a tiny Easy Eight zipping around at 60 km/h shooting everything on the move and massively pissing off all the heavies and mediums

    According to Overlord, no delays have happened with 7.2 yet, it's "on schedule", aka release at end of February


    Yet.


    ​delays are delayed

    Wasn't too bad before the HE nerf, the M5 stuart was actually enjoyable. It must be horror to play now though.

    The Beta tank's not great for moneymaking. I generally made more with the SU-85-107 before I put equipment on it.

    It has its wonders at times. What with the french tanks being introduced. I have gotten a lot more pleasurable battles out of it, not to mention money as well.

    Then again you have tanks like the Hetzer, M41 (1st Gun), etc that also make good money.

    betamobile was essentially a stock sherman with more armor, it's not all that good.

    I got in to a bouncing war with a Hetzer one time, there was no winner.

    Sold it. It wasn't great for moneymaking, was worth 300k, and was taking up a valuable slot in my garage.

    You have to be completely immobile for a few seconds, not even moving your gun, and even then your detection chance will be only slightly decreased.

    I tried. He's the "instant gratification" type and didn't even want to finish grinding for a t2

    Edited:

    As far as the WoT community is concerned, you're a grade A++ player!

    w/l ratio is a joke
    Considering how many utterly braindead players I've met who have 45% win ratios, it actually does matter but only in the extreme ends (like 40-45% win ratio or 55-60% for shit and good players) and anything inbetween is generally luck

    I don't blame him, the whole "invisible tank" system isn't the greatest system ever, and it doesn't work the greatest either.
