9.20 Supertest - Soviet Medium Changes

They will be able to cause damage from this position and live up to the idea of active Medium tanks with strong turret armor.

Oh good! Those Centurion tanks really needed this buff! After waves of nerfs due to HD remodels, there isn't really a single Brit med with half decent turret armor, despite the fact that they're all essentially ridge line snipers from tier 7 up. Kudos to WG for fixing this issue!

Let’s start with the crown jewel of the MT branch – the Object 140.

Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuck....

PS. more than half of the T9 meds have 330HEAT, why is T-54's HEAT such an issue?

pen, dpm, gun depression/handling, camo, armor. Pick 3 of the 5 and you have a "somewhat balanced" t9 med. T-54 with HEAT spam get 4 of those... making it "OP". T-54 with credit ammo only is actually pretty underwhelming compared to the other t9 meds.

What the holy hell are you smoking? You lose massive amounts of gun handling and DPM for 18mm extra pen that gets fixed by pressing 2. There is no reason to use the D-54 currently.

"But, the D-54 (which I'd say is the better gun) in the changed form"

Obviously meant after the buffs, although I guess I could've made it more obvious.

Cant remember I think i played both? Still i was wrong saying it would make the tank strong against tier x, it already is/ can be but for sure it will make it better. 

Then you'd know that the T-54 doesn't need any more fucking turret armour. 

Its an extremely strong tank as it is now, why would they need to buff its protection further, closer to what it used to be when it was overpowered as fuck? 

It will make it better against tier 10 tanks, but the thing is is that it doesn't need to be. Its a tier 9 tank and it currently doesn't have too much trouble against tier 10s (with the 2 key), why the fuck does it need to be buffed then? 

At least with a turret weakspot you can reliably pen the front of the turret with standard rounds if you are in a tier 10. At least you have a way to fight back against a T-54. 

It won't be gamebreaking, but this is just another failure of WG in addressing the actual balance issues in the game and is making this game even more imbalanced than it needs to be. 

 

Seriously. What the fuck?

No clue but i believe they dont have one either. They generally buff tanks based on marketing decision like the Maus or the Type 5 or the 30B (and I believe the e5 was buffed as an attempt to bring back the NA community)  or for no reason at all. Maybe some russian players or devs think it is not as great as it should be? They are having problems with the russian market?

Problem is they always think about profit before gameplay. Sure they have to make money and bla bla bla, but on the long term they will kill game. They think  people have no other choice than playing Wot, because it the only arcade tank shooter in the world (WT is different and AW is dead) so they will deal with any bullshit WG comes up with. And they are right. 

This lack of competition has made so they could hire idiotic devolpers (maybe friends, friends of friends, relatives ecc) and focus more on the profit aspects than gameplay ones. So lack of competition, laziness and stupidity are destroying this game.

Pre-HD T-54 is only overpowered with goldspam. It is mediocre at best with pure credit ammo. Buffing the turret armor would make it balanced if they also remove the 330 heat and give it back the old 297 apcr.

In that case don't buff turret. HEAT is what makes this tank :)

True, but you're also much better than I, so I assume you actually make a profit once and a while...

Day by day, my belief that WG's balance department consists of a couple of monkeys tossing darts at a board gets stronger and stronger

Did they change the guns again? https://ritastatusreport.live/2017/07/02/more-9-20-supertest-updates/

The reload on the D-10 drops to 7,1 the aim time is 2,4 with 0,37 accuracy. So wait with rammer bia food and vets you get sub 6 (~5,7) second reload? With around 0,35 accuracy and 2,2 aim time?

Like a 430 that's actually gud

Also with the T-54 turret buff rip 430 V2 and the entire line.

Too bad tier 8 MM is completely fuck at this point :jebaited:

Actually, when I think about it.... could it be that they're making these changes in order to stop the batchat and 113 spam in the esports scene? That's the only logical explanation I can think of for these changes, even though I myself don't follow the WoT esports scene

And 907 and 140 spam is fine?

They are russian, of course it is. Why would you ever want to see CAXs, STBs, Leopards, 30Bs and E50s in anything other than a comedy-setup or randoms?
