9.20 Supertest - Soviet Medium Changes

102 posts in this topic

Seriously? Buffing the obj 140 and t-54?!? Why?

 

The Soviet tanks have arrived to the Supertest for some rebalancing! The main idea is to significantly strengthen the armor on the turret front, which will allow Soviet MTs to tank with their turret when they manage to hide the hull behind cover. They will be able to cause damage from this position and live up to the idea of active Medium tanks with strong turret armor. Let’s start with the crown jewel of the MT branch – the Object 140. It is an excellent vehicle that does a great job when fulfilling its intended role on the battlefield. However, it has a drawback, which you often reported, the armor on the turret roof. This was the reason why the Object could be penetrated in the turret even though it seemed like a solid cast construction. On the Super test we will change the armor of the top turret and will get it up to the level of its comrade – the T-62A. At the same time, the armor of the hatches on the turret will remain the same, so do not allow your opponents to aim at them. Let’s go one tier lower and see what happened with the T-54. Besides significantly strengthening its turret armor, we’ll also revise the top guns and will set the roles of the vehicle according to the gun choice.

The 100 mm D-10Т2S gun that in the research tree leads to the Object 140 will be rebalanced for close-range fighting. Its reload time will be decreased thereby increasing its average damage per minute. At the same time the accuracy will be slightly decreased – this will force players to use the gun at medium and short ranges and to play in a more aggressive style more in line with how a medium range support tank should be played. The 100 mm D-54 gun (that leads to T-62A) will have significantly improved aiming time and accuracy at 100m, but at the same time the reload time will be increased. Now it’ll be easier for it to act as a long range fire support vehicle.

Let’s go to Tier VIII and test the updated version of the T-44. It will have a significantly strengthened turret roof. The effective armor of the turret front will reach about 200 mm (instead of the current 120-140 mm), and the effective side armor – more than 300 mm. Similar parameters will be implemented on the turrets of such premium tanks as the T-54 first prototype and the Т-44-100 (Р).

We will also change the performance of two of the T-44s guns. The 100 mm LB-1 gun will receive improved stabilization and aiming time, which will allow more accurate firing both while moving and while standing still. This change will affect both the T-44 and the T-44-100 (P). The 122 mm D-25-44 gun will have a significantly improved rate of fire and slightly improved aiming parameters, which will allow this weapon to perfectly fulfil the potential at close range, causing high alpha-damage. That’s not all the changes that we are planning to test within the USSR tree in this version. Next in line are the Soviet Heavy tanks and TDs, but we’ll talk about them a bit later.

They totally swapped the gun characteristics on the T-54. The long aiming gun with high standard pen we have know is soon the fast aiming gun with much better accuracy. Why dafuq should I still keep the D-10TS2S the D-54 is now so much better. It is bascialy the same shit we have right now. One gun is good the other crap. Ok the reload time is one second better. Meh. I totally don't understand this balance shit WG is doing.

If they are trying to make a line of hull down tanks.. shouldn't T-54 get the historical 100mm ufp by this point then?

Depending on how they do the change in the turret, it could just be back to how the 140 was vs the 62a prior to the 140 HD nerf. I know they said they'll make it like the 62a but knowing WG.

I have a hard time seeing how even the 46% No gold using supertesters can give the feedback of this being balanced :serb:

T44 needed help, buffing it is perfectly reasonable.

T54 changes will give it the option of good handling + med dpm, or poor handling + good dpm. The current one is just one gun to rule them all (as long as you use gold liberally).

komrade, we heard T-54 is very weak so we give it buff to be able to compete with Type 61 da blyat.

 

Also very amusing how the T-55A just gets completely ignored

Is it really so much better? Haha I have 907 but none of the other tier 10 russian meds. I was going to go for the t62a first just for the turret armor and slightly better gun handling but now with the obj140 getting turret buff to match t62a and a point of gun depression more, is there a point going for the t62?

907 has slightly higher dpm (insignificant amount), worse bloom values (about equivalent to a vstab), better front hull armor vs low pen guns (useful in pubs, irrelevant in cw settings).

907's biggest advantage is far superior side armor that allows it to sidescrape like a boss; something you cannot do in other RU meds other than the T22... but lets not talk about that thing.
