  1. Type is the biggest winner, not sure on what the armour changes are but it's got a damn good turret as it is and enough hull armour to sidescrape and troll lower tiers. By fixing the mobility they are pretty much fixing the last issue with it, DPM is still on the low side but aside from that you have very good armour, good gun depression, near best on tier gun handling, decent enough prem round, and you now go 56kph with 18 hp/ton so even better than something like a Cent 5/1 RAAC and Primo Victoria which are decently mobile meds. Super P is weird, think we need to see some armour views to see how troll the weakspots will be, more hp/ton at least makes it less annoying to play but it's only 12 hp/ton with terrible ground resistances. 112 is already good with it's armour layout, so they are just buffing a decent tank there. Similar to the WZ-111 it's a decent heavium who you use to bully meds, so the pen is workable and both the Chinese tanks have their 250 HEAT to fall back on against anything the AP can't handle. Jt88 is still sh*t, how can they not realise that you can't buff the mobility of that tank if you do not tackle it's engine power? They have boosted top speed before and turning rate before but it made no difference because of sh*t hp/ton and poor ground resistances, and now they do it again. Plus base pen of a 50T is not that hot for a turretless TD that is slow and still only has 237mm of APCR. DPM is highest on tier 8 now aside the rare ISU-130, so that is a thing I suppose. KV-5 didn't get anywhere near the buffs we first saw, still looks pretty rubbish to me. Definitely will be taking my Type out more, will give the Super P a go, will use the 112 and WZ, and might give the 50T a run, more gun depression, DPM, and hp/ton, shame they didn't touch the bloom. Poor old CDC though, 50T is like a less paper version now that doesn't see tier 10.
  2. Tier 10 meta is pretty horrible at the moment, lots of over armoured tanks, lots of prem spam, lots of arty, lots of camping TDs all clustered on maps where you can't really utilise much skill. Plus added to that lots of frustrated collapses that lead to quick one sided games. The hull down/over armoured/HE meta at tier 10 I feel is even more RNG focused than the general game, you can play well and get sh*t on by a 4005 or arty taking huge chunks or your health. Plus playing anything that isn't basically a 430U, 5A, Super Conq, means you are generally too team/map dependent to be useful and carry. The games I feel I make big contributions on are ones on amps with a bit of leg room to re-position on and where you can make angles on the enemy, but on the maps where you forced in close range frontal brawls much of that comes down to luck, as everyone is spamming HE or premium ammo at thick armour, and you just have to hope your pubbies trade better.

    I don't think you need to do anything particular to accuracy, you just need to stretch the ranges more. Most tanks in the game basically fit into the 0.3 - 0.42 range, which offers very little practical difference. It needs stretching to more like 0.1 to 0.5 IMO. And Yes I am suggesting some big alpha derpy guns on tanks that are designed for close combat should shift to like 0.5 something accuracy.

    Stats have been updated - Better accuracy, better traverse, more hp/ton and better aim time. Looks decent and fun enough I'd reckon.
  5. I thought they initially said 12t, but then this one is a tier 8, so would seem odd that you went from a tier 8 to a tier 8, but you never know with WG. I want to see the tier 10 to see if there is any value, at the moment they are persisting with the terrible view range and terrible DPM. A tier 8 vehicle with 40m less view range than an IS3 is just stupid.

    Sometimes they do, there was a guy on the EU forums that regularly reported back on the Russian forums and it was more they were just different about what they complained about. Defender generally was fine for them, apparently there is so much premium spam on RU, which they are fine with, that it's less effective. But apparently they did complain about bobject and thought it was too good. As a playerbase they seem to just get upset about different areas of balance whilst EU, NA and SEA are more on the same page, but when they massively outnumber the other servers put together it's no surprise that WG pander to them. This still looks ok to me at the moment, but no doubt they buff it more. The lack of a turret is a big turn off, but you have to laugh at it's balance compared to the KaJaPa 105 just released on EU. 520 alpha gun gets over 600 more DPM than a 390 alpha gun cos reasons. Plus more hitpoints, plus more camo, plus is semi-turreted.

T-54: 29 E75: 27 + 1 = 28, 3 marked this recently and it's just a good solid tank, prem spam is a bit annoying but you just have to aware of it (and honestly HE spam is more annoying) but you have armour, you are not super slow and you have 490 alpha with solid gun handling and accuracy.

    I'd like to see it made a bit special so it;s different from the other nato meds and more like a nato version of the K-91, it's an idea me and another guy on the forums had. Basically - 420 alpha - because sniper is more about alpha than DPM Movement bloom down to 0.14/0.14 Turret bloom down to 0.06 1.5s aim time 0.24 base accuracy 1700 m/s shell velocity 276mm of base pen DPM down to about 2.5k base.

    Meh considering how much camo the HD bushes have I don't think this matters that much. It'll just be another TD camping TD you have to dig out on some BS camping ledge WG gives all the noobs. It'll be far easier meat in other situations though where a Skorpion would have peeked and shot you.

    Leopard 1 is pointless in the current meta, no armour, bad bloom on movement and nothing exceptional in terms of DPM, pen, alpha, burst etc. Just compare it the Progetto 65 which is pretty much as fast, has the same pen, almost the same accuracy and pretty much better gun handling. Except the Progetto can do 1440 burst in 7.5s. It even has more funky angles to get the odd bounce.

    M60 - the fast-boi Patton

    It's better but it's not competitive, the Patton's turret makes it way more effective in the current meta. It's basically a fatter Leopard 1 with HE proof armour, better gun handling and 350 pen HEAT.

    Looks like a worse Skorp G to me, worse accuracy, no full turret, HEAT prem round, worse gun handling. The turret doing 77 degrees makes it way less flexible than the Skorp G and therefore pointless for me. It'll be fine for all the shitters that camp in it but can't go pseudo medium so can;t see why I'd play it over a Skorp.
  14. I've sort of fixed it by just playing the 430U, cos it's OP and can pretty much do anything. But I am more just leaning to doing the XP missions and doing it in tier 9s, as that tier is so much more enjoyable, at worst you see 5 tier 10s, so you don't get so much broken crap in one game. Whereas most tier 9s are decently balanced, only really Type 4s are a bit annoying but less so than the Type 5 and T95 can be a pain since they over buffed it, especially as half the bobs on your team tend to just drive at it and refuse to use prem ammo at these things.
  15. Clearly better than the LTTB, with both guns, but it's also IMO that is standard that tier 8 lights should be. Tanks like the T92 and Bulldog need like near 3k DPM What is hilarious is that it is way more accurate than the T-100 lt, and only has about 100 less DPM, it's even less crippled (relative to it's tier) with penetration, especially with the 100mm. Hope they bring it out with the 85mm, cos I can't see them balancing the 100mm without making it awful and it'll end up like the WZ-132-A being crippled because it's a light with good alpha and pen, which is a no no in WG's eyes because pesky lights can't threaten the heavy tanks. Also can't see anything else being used in tier 8 team based modes if it comes out like that, with either gun.
