    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.
  9. Have a good motivating playlist, or sing to yourself to calm your nerves. I personally queue the BeeGees "Staying Alive" when things get hairy.
  10. 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?)
  11. Some of the few reasons I got the M60 was because: A) It existed, B) it is still used in service in my country, and C) I hadn't gotten the M48 yet. The buffs seem like it'll be a tall Leopard I. I understand they didn't want it to become an M48 clone but then that just means it still won't be as good as the M48.

    AMX M4 mle. 45

    Just finished grinding the AMX 65t, and as i've already also researched and unlocked the AMX 50 100 I can safely say bon voyage to this oversized Maginot Line and to ask this "tank" to go choke on a stale baguette. because there's really no redeeming feature about this tank other than being so "French". I'd even rather be in a Black Prince than this tank, since at least the BP has relatively better armor. I mostly used the 90mm gun, and it's just absurd how mediocre the firepower this tank has compared to even against same tier medium tanks. Because that seems to be how the tank is suggested to be played. The only German inspiration in its design from the Tiger is the size and shite mobility. I hesitate to use the 105 because I don't want to spend more than I have to while playing this tank, and the idea of missing shots (not that the 90mm doesn't) while trying to compensate for the low AP pen by spamming prem isn't appealing to me.
  13. ...And good fucking riddance to the AMX M4 45, after 93 battles finally unlocked the AMX 65t and the AMX 50 100 previously. Bon voyage and go choke on a stale baguette, you oversized Maginot Line.

      AMX 65t is also a pos

      Not only the AMX65t is a POS, it's even worse than the AMX M4 45.

  14. Good write-up, the Conqueror was a beast before its change, the turret front shields IMO weren't too necessary but guess does help when everyone and their dog starts to spam more APCR/HEAT, but the slight drop in DPM as balance, while barely noticeable for what is still an overall great gun, just means you either make your shots count or pay more to make your shots count the M103 WG can't fuck around with as much as we'd like them to since it actually existed unlike a great deal of the recent tanks they just introduced. it can be good in the right hands and can still perform, but its not very newbie friendly or forgiving of mistakes, and you can't pull off risky maneuvers in the M103 they way you can do so with a lot of other tier 9 heavy tanks.
