It's not just Chinese people that do this lmao.
If you're going to want to play team games, find some teammates. Even people that are "bad" individually can be good together as a team. Maybe not top 50 or top 100 but still winning 60-80% of the matches.
Join some Discords like someone else so kindly posted a link to. Biggest rule is don't be a dick to your teammates and to your opponents.

Relic does not provide source data anymore.
I'm not a tech guy by any means, but could someone go into the game data and find the information manually? I see how even doing that would be difficult because there are so many values for even a single weapon, and there are so many weapons...but is there also some software that one could use to organize that data after having it look through the file?
This all sounds like a lot of work lmao

Thread: It's time for Main Gun Crits to go12 Dec 2020, 04:38 AM
I think the main gun critical ought to be removed, too. Only because it can have such a huge impact on a game because of how valuable vehicles can be.
I do like RoastinGhost's point of subtle and numerous RNG events. There are a bunch of criticals that were in the game that we don't see anymore (or are rare), such as main gun damaged/gunner injured that increase reload time. There's also a "turret destroyed" critical I remember from the beta days (it was cool on the Ostwind; had a damaged turret model too!). There could also be "machine gun destroyed"/"machine gunner injured" that could disable or impede a machine gun's operation (similar to turret gunner killed crit from coh1).
There are a lot of things that could be implemented if they're balanced, but I think that the main gun crit is definitely one of those that ought to be cut.
As an aside, I'd also be in favour of coh3 using the equivalent of "tourney mode" tuning pack that ML uses to be employed in automatch and/or in temporary "league" modes.
this would let "fun" randoms/criticals stay in the game but let those who want a more competitive game have their game (with no vehicle abandon lmao). Think of this idea as to what they did with cold-tech, where it's still in the game but not in automatch.

Unless Axis heavy TDs like Ele and Jagdtiger are going to get their ranges reduced, ISU shouldn't be touched OR should be compensated to be more mobile. Is the ISU's HE broken? Yeah, I'd say so. But it's such a crutch that making it more vulnerable will put late game soviets in an incredibly precarious position without some compensation from the axis side.

How I feel about this:
Ost have lots of tools to deal with infantry. Ostwind is great and has a turret and is a speedy boi
Thread: [Winter Balance Update] SOV Feedback2 Dec 2020, 02:09 AM
I'm gonna drop this copy-pasted from the general balance feedback thread. Lots of quoted posts there so I apologize for the confusion.
To me, the ISU is a crutch in Soviet late game. If things are even, I am often relying on that thing to wipe squads. In much the same way it is or was a tactic to use Sturmtigers for the same role. Having to go forwards into battle, take a shot or two from a Jagd or Elefant, then having to retreat and repair, will make it more vulnerable to pushes more of the time, make it do less damage over time as it's forced to withdraw, and these two aspects combined will make it less useful when it is sorely needed.

When you're saying things like this, I agree, but I wonder why you think it's fine that ISU has lower range. Ele and Jagd can already shoot at it from the front and, I'm sure, reliably penetrate it at maximum range, let alone fifty range.
30 Nov 2020, 22:52 PMProtos Angelus
it is bad because ISU is going to have to repair or be more vulnerable to pushes as it takes damage from its now shortened maximum range.

I raise you Jagdtiger's barrage ability, and, secondly, the Brummbär's (although less extreme but still with considerable range).
If anything, I'd like to keep the range as is but, to counter this, maybe increase scatter when attacking ground to make smoke more feasible?
30 Nov 2020, 00:48 AMNapalm
Here's Napalm saying the same thing I said above, where Soviet vehicles are the wiping tools of the Soviets, not elite infantry squads with LMGs. When you have Ele and Jagd shutting down a sector of the map it's difficult or impossible to wipe axis squads with the anti-infantry oriented tanks that are so necessary. Same for USF, too, with the standard Sherman and 105mm howitzer Sherman.
I'm including this from Mr. Someguy because he has done the hard work for me already. I think the points he makes here and the numbers he provides illustrate just how difficult it can be in an evenly matched late game.
30 Nov 2020, 05:37 AMMr. Someguy
What I said in the Soviet thread fits here as well, since we are now talking about the Elefant and the ISU-152 and their respective positions in each Army.
Overall, I think if only the ISU is going to be changed and it's going to receive both a rear armour nerf and a range nerf with it's HE ammunition, then it should also receive mobility/speed buffs, significant reduction to switch shell types, and/or a reload increase to AP rounds. This is all to counter the vulnerabilities that are being introduced to it.

Trump lost the election lol. But not much will change in terms of actual
Policy. Main differences in foreign policy between Trump and Ds was all rhetoric. Not to say things are identical but it’s like a 90/10.
Sure this is for anything but I’m pretty sure there’s a no politics rule because moderating that would be a nightmare.
