  1. Any tier 6 tanks that reliably stomp 34-85Ms? Or is it time to try playing 8s to take advantage of them all?

      Don't know. I'm pretty certain the Type 64 became less OP once all these rolled out.

      probably should play a strong tier 7 then? SU-122-44 maybe? Has good enough armor to bounce them it sounds like. I haven't played in 2+ years tho so idk.

      Tier 8 still gets to see many tier 10s. If you have a tier 7 premium go with that

  2. Playing the M103 on a friend's account, it's been treating me pretty good so far. The top gun is worth the 60k xp, and given that you need the gun to research the E5 it's a no-brainer. I've had success by bullying lower tiers and doing my best to deny engagements with tanks I don't want to fight, although it's not always easy given the corridor maps. 340 pen HEAT is pretty nice, given that the only tanks I feel the need to load it for are German boxes or Japanese bunkers, which give a new meaning to the word "flat". The dpm is decent and I'm consistently surprised by how comfortable the gun is.
  3. Yeah, it's really sluggish for a tier X medium tank. WG and it's great unbalancing department strikes again. IMO if it had the same hp/ton as the 301er it's be leagues better. Not fast enough to rival the Leopard but at least it'll dust other meds. I didn't have high expectations but I've been really underwhelmed so far. Feels like a downgrade from the 301er, which is not what a tier X is supposed to feel like.

    Ferdi was a mostly enjoyable grind. JT looks to be more of the same.

  5. Just had a Kolobanov's ruined when a Grille arty (which I killed as he fired) snapshotted my M4 Impaired, while I was hull down and behind cover. Wasn't even a splash.

      Sometimes Rngesus just says. you. fuck you. hard. that sucks to have a Kolo's ruined like that

      Blacklist that arty and take your sweet revenge next time you see him.

  6. So, it's been awhile since this thread was active. I have the (nerfed) 4502B and I'm wondering if its worth suffering through now that it's basically an awkward E75 again. I have the Maus, but is the Pz. Kfw. VII worth the grind? It's only 196k xp, which for a tier X is really cheap.

      Now if you thought Black Prince was OP, get ready for this one baby!

      I had to free xp this pos, it's one of the worst tanks in the game no kidding... and i didn't mind tanks before this one, all churchills were workable

      god speed to you

  8. Good point, but IIRC it's middle of the pack for tier 9 TDs, which would be fine except that it has the lowest pen and alpha among its counterparts.
  9. Yeah, the Foch is a weird combination (like the rest of the tanks before it) of poor alpha, below-average pen (for a TD), and low dpm. Couple that with a chassis that has some armor but also has weakspots even 45%ers know, it can be an incredibly difficult tank to play because the gun and armor layout require two different playstyles. It can bully low tier stuff pretty effectively, though.
  10. The new dynamic pen indicator just made using armor much more difficult. My guess is that the days of effectively baiting shots are numbers, since the game literally tells you that your shell won't pen.

      So that's why my Mauschen is getting raped by everything under the sun. People now know where to shoot it......fml

      It's exactly what WG shouldn't have done if they want to make armor great again.

      I agree that it doesnt really make any sense in World of Murazor.  Decent players already know where to aim against armored tanks, this just means they are now weaker against the players armor used to be the most effective against.

  11. Spent about 10 minutes coming through the settings on WoT. Is there any way to turn off the dynamic penetration indicator (and simply have what we had prior to this patch)?

     

    IDK why but we hates it, precious.

      Ah. Stuck with it then

      The worst thing about the new pen marker is that 70-80% chance pens are shown as orange aka 50/50

      But if they biased it the other way can you imagine the pubbie rage on the offical forums when heaps of shots don't pen?  Either way, no pen indicator might be the better option now? We still haven't got the patch.

  12. VKB got its LFP nerfed so it's not that good anymore. I struggle to think of many other tanks that have workable armor and low-ish. Maus still might be the best bet, despite the high hp pool.
  13. From TAP: The servers will undergo a brief maintenance in connection with the release of a small update on July 13, which is intended to fix:

    – the problem with artillery shells not dealing damage

    Is that really a problem?

      inb4 people were complaining that they are getting stunned without receiving damage so now WG will make sure you do receive the DMG :serb:

  14. Black Prince OP, pls nerf

  15. "But if you look at how players react to the BatChat, which is, mind you, not a nerf, but a rebalance, I became afraid of the reaction if we start touching the Soviet MT’s."

    So, you're fine screwing with the most popular French tank despite the negative feedback, but you'll keep RU meds as they are because you're afraid of the possible reaction?

      I really hope WG doesn't think that what they are doing to the Batchat is not a nerf.

      M46 and M48 are "obsolete" because they have "many weakspots" huehuehuehue
