    The T29 Thread / MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN

    that could be said of a lot of tanks for a lot of players who just started out long ago, and coming back to it with some experience then suddenly everything clicks. sorta glad that nothing so far has replaced the T29 at tier 7 as the king of hulldown positions.

    The P.43 Bis, 240 alpha ? Yes please !

    I've kept the bis as I'm slowly grinding up the ter. After the bland tier 5, having that 90mm gun at tier 6 that isn't a heavy tank or tank destroyer really makes you sit up and pay attention. This thing really shits on lower tiers, and also not to be discounted by the higher tiers. Gun handling feels okay, and you can sorta accept the tradeoff for that big alpha and yet not suffer too badly for it. The front armor is surprisingly bouncy, which just adds to its bully factor and lends some explanation as to why the Italians think this tank would've been their heavy tank.
  3. Finally completed TD-15.3 after Chanka-knows how long. All thanks to the blyat-mobile Obj 263 and a healthy dose of approval from RNGesus (especially the final shot)

      You would probably do it every other battle in the broken mobile a tier higher

      That's what I was aiming for. But this was a pleasant result and made it feel less dirty.

  4. That didn't hurt the Charioteer, and this one will have a bit more HP to work with. But at least now the Brits will have something to match those pesky Skorpions!

    T95E6

    while the buffs to the T95E6 seems decent, I'm gonna pass on getting it since I already have an M60.

    Renault G1 or the G1R and oh my goddess, what have they done...

    Looking back to them announcing these French tanks in patch 9.7 preview, they seem to just barely glance over the low tier tanks. All they could say about these was that they were alternate lines to go and that the Somua S35, SARL 42, and G1 R are "more dynamic" than current vehicles. At the time, those "less dynamic" current vehicles were the D2, B,1& BDR G1B, and the AMX 38, AMX 40, & ELC AMX (RIP). If by less dynamic in that they had limited playstyles and options on how to play them, sure... The medium-to-heavy trio were decently armored but were better in support roles, either with the B1's mini gun (multi-gun mechanics pls), or the BDR's 90mm. The AMX series starts with relatively well-armored light tanks that could tank surprisingly well, then flips that to a fast go-kart with a 90mm gun. I think WG overuses the term dynamic to describe new tanks.

    How to balance the 268-4?

    When a TD like this can bully a heavy tank or medium tank at almost any ranges, it's a problem. Maybe make the gun arc narrower to force it to have to make so much micro adjustments that throws its aim off at mid-close range and expose a lot more.

    How to balance the 268-4?

    What is it about this tank that makes it so controversial? Is it the gun? Is it the armor? Is it the mobility? Is there a reasonable way to balance this tank without turning it into an E5? IMO the mobility needs to be toned down. Let it keep its speed so that it can get into the fight faster and be that assault gun that it is clearly designed to be, but it shouldn't be able to turn as well or even better than a medium tank at close range.
  13. Have a good motivating playlist, or sing to yourself to calm your nerves. I personally queue the BeeGees "Staying Alive" when things get hairy.
  14. I may have been those very few people who rolled out in the M60 in Ranked Battles, just to be a hipster about it (is it a rarer sight than the T95E6 tho?)
