The full session ended on about 3k dpg which I think for a E100 with only AP and non-try hard is pretty good. Obviously the E100 is tier 10 most dependent on it’s premium ammunition to be effective, having 235 AP Pen is truly horrific and I’ve no idea why WG haven’t buffed it. This session yielded 228k credit gain with a 38.9% survival rate.
Having done the hardest tank I was thinking of doing non-prem sessions in other tanks, so if you have a suggestion let me know.
Also new 3 mark video should be done Wednesday at the lastest :^)
So early it hurts. 0:01 best sinuses NA
World of Bots
Okay so u not a gold noob, you are a hacker, uninstall mods.
WHYOU lel good players xD
Pfff just pure luck ;^)
OMG! What a noob. Died and didn’t win! Such noob, gold noob!
this is only possible with warpack penetration increaser
3:34 exactly what Anfield says.
I have been watching his videos about 3rd mark sessions and I learned a lot about positioning, also got my 3 marks on the T-34-3 like two weeks ago.
People really don’t understand how useful Anfield’s videos on 3rd mark sessions are. All you have to do is watch a few videos.
Best way of watching <3
After getting blamed for firing gold at an FV4202 despite loading it for an Obj 263 in my WZ-120, and being accused of being skill-less despite being able to pen the Prius either way, and then a similar case with an E 25 YOLO’ing me out of nowhere, expecting me to have AP pre-loaded just for him when I could pen him either way once again, etc. all happening in the couple of hours I’ve played today, it feels pretty good to watch an Anfield video where he calls pubbies out on their retarded spouts of Autism.
Like, I agree that gold rounds are broken in their current state and should be rebalanced to standard rounds with higher pen/less alpha, or vise versa, because currently (especially with APCR) they’re more or less flat out better rounds, but they’re still nowhere near as big a problem in the game as they’re made out to be. Also unskilled for firing gold? I really don’t get it. So, if you’re a paper tank and I fired gold at you I’m an unskilled player because I could pen with standard rounds? Then why do you give a shit? You would die anyway, the reason I killed you isn’t down to the ammo type, it’s entirely based on other factors. Or if you rely on your armour and I APCR/HEAT through it, how is that skill-less? Not throwing away my tank and instead being a useful asset to my team makes me unskilled because I didn’t let you kill me? This retarded sense of WoT honour really plagues the game when it comes to toxicity, especially in chat. If everyone was just less stupid it’d be a far nicer place, and I don’t think I’m being harsh when I say that because it’s not as simple as pubbies being naive or ignorant to the fact that gold rounds have a place in the game. If you explained this to every single pubbie in the game, the majority would still cry about gold rounds because, like you said, they suck and need something to blame it on. If they can see it in their hit log, it’s an easy go to despite most of the time it being entirely irrelevant to the player’s skill and why they killed you. Yes, it should be fixed, but there are other much more pressing issues in the game like artillery, +/-2mm, HE tanks, base camping TD’s, etc. that place way above gold rounds. If you personally choose not to use gold rounds, it’s your fault for limiting yourself based on stupid reasons, not other players when they take the smart initiative available to them, and you.
Completely off topic, but it popped into my head as I mentioned it: What do you think about +/-2mm Anfield? Personally I can’t see a reason for it over +/-1 which helps to ensure nobody in the game is entirely obsolete simply because of the matchmaking they get in to, with the exception of queue times. I play on EU and am absolutely certain +/-1mm wouldn’t have a noticable effect on queue times at all, and this is even more so the case for RU, but what about NA? It’s a much smaller player base, so I’d like to hear the opinion of someone who frequently plays on it.
*we are the best at penning tanks* *bounces on the side of a obj* I actually laughed, now that’s what I call irony
I dont actually have a problem when something fat and slow like an E100 shoots gold to compensate his shitty standard pen. But fast, agile tanks like a Object 140 or a TVP with a full heat mag annoy me. Sure, this game has way to many corridor maps so flanking is not an option everytime… but in that case they should overwork their maps. I dont think that its fair to have a fast and agile tank who can shift around the battlefield in the short time but also has the feature to engage slow and heavy tanks from the front with ease. Heavy armored tanks more or less have to commit to one flank and their advantage gets completlly negatet if almost every shot pens their thickest part of armor. And thats true for most TX heavys. The Type 5, Maus and E-100 get completly rekked with gold (the Maus probably has still the best chance with an angeled turret but still). The IS7 is much less of threat in close combat / facehug if you can shoot down on the cheeks with gold..in a straight line its possible to pen the upper plate, but its at least bouncy. The IS4 on the other is super easy to pen and can angle how it wants. 113 already had to work with angeling the upper plate to get it in the range of 270mm effective armor – thats gone too if you dont generate an autobounce angle. The FVs hull gets murdered while the turret stays strong because of the autobounce zones. Lastly the E5 has the best chance cause it still can only get penned in the tumor or the lower plate (of course its much easier to pen the tumor reliably). Besides the E5 which will work as a slower medium with great gun stats, depression, DPM, and of course the best working armor of them all (I wonder why people think its overpowered…) almost every heavy tank suffers from gold rounds – some more some less than others. Arty is still the biggest enemy of heavys of course…cause you cant defend yourself against that bullshit at all. But gold rounds do have their spot among the most annoying things if you play that class, at least in my book.
I dont blame the players to use it though. Its in the game, its availabe and why should anybody not want to have the best chance of penning an enemy? On the other hand bad players wont profit that much from it because they waste it in the tracks or well angled zones unaware of how this mechanic works. Like you said game sense makes unicoms not ammunition. But I still think like so many things gold rounds are awefully implemented. Because an arty player could say the same thing: Its in the game, Im able to use it – so I do. Dont blame me – blame them. Man this game could be so great with a few tweaks..okay..Im done with my rant now :D
I like watching these, I also like using AP in my KV-2. Shame that the O-I has more penetration on it’s standard AP rounds.
All you need is AP anyways lol
I find your lack of HE-100 disturbing.
personally, i use the hitlog mod that shows what type of ammo is fired at me…so i can call out the ones who spam only skill rounds when their normal AP is more than good enough to pen what im driving at that point. i just find it sad the sheer amount of skill rounds that fly around when people dont really need them. sure, if you load a premium APCR or HEAT to pen a maus or e100 then it’s understandable…but spamming nonstop skill rounds at something with no hull armor (like a T34) just makes me facepalm. WG should have a mandatory tutorial detailing the different ammunition types and how each one works.
Id like to say that you proved the doubters wrong, averaging 3k damage using AP only. But on the other hand, they kind of have a point – you probably would have averaged 4.5k or so if you were using heat? So they are kind of right in saying that gold rounds make it easier to do more damage, you are kind of right in saying you dont need them.
