Once they let you buy gold rounds for credits I didn't see the point in using anything else on my premium tanks. Fuck the complainers, a T-34 or KV5 with gold rounds is giggles.

You guys are talking enough about this again recently that I almost want to play again.

Is it just my games or does everybody fire premium rounds starting from tier IV?
If you're driving a KV-1, you'll see a lot of sprem spammed at you when you're top tier. 
I haven't gotten to Tier V yet.

My brain read that as "sperm" at first.

Anothing thing about gold to keep in mind is that there's quite a few tanks with all guns being crap against the tanks they're matched against. middle parts of most of the trees seemed to be the worst about that. And good luck penning anything with a D-25T at higher tiers without gold.

Yeah I realize I can't pen a lot of stuff especially since almost all of my Tier IVs have their stock guns still. I've taken to firing HE more since at least there's a decent chance I'll track or crit.

I think I am the worst WoT player on the planet. People rage at me constantly. I don't give a shit though, mostly because caring takes effort and I just want to drive my tanks and shoot stuff.

I like the reaction I get from people when they are popping a blood vessel at me and I tell them I don't care what the score is as long as I get to drive my tank around.

Heh. My favorite is when people are all like, "go back to a lower tier or uninstall and die noob."

In all seriousness though, which mods should I be using?

Start with XVM, a crosshair mod (I like J1mbo's) and Battle Assistant, then experiment from there. Go tohttp://odemmortis.com/odem-mortis-modpack/ and download the installer, then pick a few mods that sound interesting.

I run King's All-The-Basics Modpack. As its name implies it comes with all the basics including the mods WAP listed above. You don't get to pick and choose which individual mods to install -- it comes all together in one big blob -- but that's what I was looking for when I first started playing since I didn't really want to wade through all the choices that are available in some of the "super mod packs" like OMC, Aslain or Locastan.

I've gotten to the point that I'm thinking about replacing some of the mods or even writing my own but King's is a very good starting place if you aren't sure what to get.

Battle Assistant. Pretty much anything else that's legal is of pretty questionable utility and seems to be mostly elitist wankery. Like my neighbor's machined and balanced titanium stereo knobs that he had made machined. He claims that he can tell the difference now that the weight of the knob is distributed evenly along the shaft of the rheostat shafts. I claim that not even a dog or a vampire bat can tell the difference and he's a tool for having spent the money. XVM is good for stats and bitching about your team's chances I suppose, but it's not like you can kick people off your random pub team for being bad.

Battle Assistant makes artillery extremely easy, I'm not sure what else it can do though. There are other mods that clear out all the bushes and foliage from trees, as well as making big colored markers over top of areas on tanks you want to shoot but those are all illegal as far as I know.

Any of the minimap mods that show you the draw range box and your spotting range help a ton. XVM's should work, I like the pretty colors on Locastan's mod more.

After approximately 28974529472197 battles with sheriffs on my side, I finally saw one on the opposite team. And killed him! Next battle, there were two. And I killed one of them. +500g in 2 battles? TYVM.

I also blew past a couple of personal missions that had me log-jammed; FINALLY killed 5 modules/crew members while driving a heavy, and got a cap win in my light (told my team why I was capping, and 1 guy even helped me. And my toonmate circled the last enemy in his arty to block my team from killing him. He died, and they killed him, but I got the mission anyway. Or I would have lost my fucking mind). If I could just set two goddamned fires while driving a medium I would be well on my way to the T55. I set 2 fires a few days ago. In a light  Heartbreak

Heh, don't misunderstand, I am pretty low rated. It's just that the loudest people are even worse than I am.

Edit: Now that I can see ratings, I very rarely see the highest rated people talking any crap at all, they just seem to jump in get their kills and get out.

So... logged on tonight to try and get back into playing and had no luck.  No mods on the vanilla game and I get booted after logon every time.  Type in account and password and the game boots me while trying to get into my garage. 

I'll try a clean install tomorrow.

I didn't really get into warships.  I played cruisers and battleships to tier 6 and didn't like how dependent the game was on the RNG. 

Solid game.  Just not my thing.

You might want to try the %appdata% and integrity check fixes described here before doing a full reinstall:

http://forum.worldoftanks.com/index.php?/topic/452969-99-ctd-all-fixes-so-far-dont-work-for-me/page__pid__9205010#entry9205010

They don't work for everybody but it may work for you.

Mine is working fine except for the ~1 in 4 crash on map start issue which is likely caused by XVM. I can still get back into the match, though, so it's not a big deal.

Edit: there's also the missing awesomium folder fix:

T4 has the Matilta and the Hetzer, and I quite like the Panzer 3. Aside from that, yep, its wall to wall crap.

Tier 4 is where the grind really kicks in as well, meaning you need to be a premium buyer to progress past it in any appreciable time frame.

Anyways, the A45 is a badass little tank. Anyone badmouthing it doesn't know how to play it. Its DPM is nuts.

Most people don't know how to go hull-down or exploit differences in reload times which is where this tank excels.  If you are a herp-derp shot trader you will get destroyed.  I'm 74 games in and have a 1.98 k/d ratio and 1.4 kills/match.  It's actually fairly dominant in t7 matches.  Should really have pref mm but other than that I dig it.  Plays like a slightly squishier Centurion I with a higher dpm.

It is unplayable against tier 9s, and very spotty against 8s.
