How is steering supposed to work in Robocraft? Even with four dual-drive wheels, robot just shuffles sideways when I press A or D, like an uncomfortable crab.

On the fate of Crimea... I'd rather see a referendum for the local population, than this.  I'm pretty sure we know how it would turn out, but it wouldn't be this.

Steering affected by position of wheels relative to driver seat. If you want to make first pair to turn in one side and second one to turh to the other side, you need to place first pair somewhere in front of Pilot, and second somewhere behind.

Thats why we have talks about changing a law about the accession of new entities in the Russian Federation. It planned that Referendum would be enough to be a basis for accession.

 

Although after attempts of Ukrainian authorities to not to recognize Russian as a regional language (basically ban it) and general 'psychological' detachment of Crimea from other parts of Ukraine i can expect some predictable results.

iirc lore says the Knights aren't titans, more akin to super dreadnoughts.

 

That said the models look awesome, if only they weren't $140 each.

 

At least you only need like 3 of them for a 1500pnt army

Grrrr, had the final 5k dmg to clear to get the 50000 dmg mission completed before it ends this morning

 

The thing is, they had the missions reset at 6 am eastern, but they still have the mission finishing 20 minutes later

 

So I went and fought for 20k/25k dmg and got nothing out of that 75k bonus :/

This is one reason I'd rather they divide the event payouts further; instead of having 50,000 for 10,000 damage, 75,000 for 25,000 and 125,000 for 50,000 (for example), I'd love an event where it was "get 5 extra credits per damage point up to 10,000, 8 for every damage point between 10K and 25K" and so on and so forth. Make it where I don't feel like I'm wasting time by playing the low tier tanks I want to grind through instead of just playing my tier 9/10 TDs to farm damage.

I as well, but they already said no new French for 2014.

This makes me a little sad. The French have some funky cool stuff, I'd like to see more of it. They would be my second most-played nation if not for the fact that a) there are too many German tanks and b) I'm getting the British tier 10s first.

Holy crap.

 

 

I am extremely impressed. There's supposed to be another game starting Sunday, but it could never be as good.

ON TO SILVER/GOLD/CRYSTAL :izmena:

 

And so ends the work month of February, where in 28 days I worked 304 hours. Holla holla get dolla.

 

DOGE is PUPEH again?

Out of curiosity, did anyone keep track of how many commands Red received over the course of the game?

Ohh don't frett

I'm sure Gen 2 will be next.

 

 

The guy who made it is probably rich from all the ad sponsorship from millions upon millions of viewers.

I mean... why stop now?

The game took around 400 hours to complete. With 100's commands a second (Rough Guess, lets assume 15)

Your looking at around 100's of millions of even a billion or so individual commands, including the war between democracy and anarchy

 

As a rough guess that is.

 

Would be nice to know the actual numbers. I'm sure the guy has his IRC logs.

Man, I am getting absolutely sick and tired of pub battles, especially when all of the idiots are placed on your team and you have no chance of winning whatsoever. Honestly, you know it's bad when you can lose 0.1% of your WLR in less than 200 battles when your total number of battles is almost 15000.

Wargaming's tanks are stupid, Part II

After our previous discussion of the insanity of the wth-100 and the WT Panzer IV, I have made the following equally stupid discoveries.

1. FV215b (fake one) has an engine grill behind the turret, for no apparent reason. The exhaust is also in a totally different position from the actual FV215b, as well as the Conqueror GC.

2. Birch Gun's gun can clip through the driver's seat (and presumably his head!). Ignoring the fact that the driver sitting next to the muzzle is probably a bad idea anyways (same on the Loyd Carrier GC).

3. The loader needs to be outside the Rheinmetal-Borsig WT to load the gun (particularly the 128mm).

4. GW Tiger (P) has the gunsight shield open, while the GW Tiger has it closed.

5. SU-26 crew can actually fit when the turret is facing backwards, but the Commander has nowhere to go.

6. The AMX 105mm model 1947 is just stupid.

with a fermi approximation you can only expect to get the right order of magnitude, which you did
