    I don't play much anymore, but the few times I recently played I realized why I don't like the game as much as I did a few years ago. There aren't enough tanks in the games, as in *tanks*. I distinctly remember a recent game with 7 TDs and 3 arty on each team. 5 actual tanks per team, and luckily there weren't any wheelies in that game. The bush-wookie meta has arisen for a lot of reasons that you guys probably understand far better than me, but at the root of it I like playing tanks, actual tanks (mostly medium tanks) and right now it seems like most players just want to hide in a bush and chuck giant HE and HESH rounds and anything that dares to get spotted. I'm sure Kolni can exploit the shit out of this meta and farm 4k dpg from those bushes all day, but for a hyper-aggro pubby like me that just wants to drive to the middle of the map and brawl, the game isn't very fun right now.

    Everyone over 47% winrate does better in the 703 II than the defender, its clearly not a hard tank to play, but otherwise yeah, we're just talking about two busted tanks here. They both represent some of the most broken tanks in the game, it's just... the 703 is even more broken. I don't think anyone is trying to say the defender is bad, it just feels bad to play.

    I get that Boring and Strong are 2 different things. I am a supporter of Ferdinand as a strong tank. All I'm saying it with high skill level Defender stops being so strong because you can't punch through as easily as you can with the 703. OP and OP in the hands of Unicums are 2 diffeerent things. Defender is op because a pubbie can do a lot of damage and not die since pubbies have trouble with dying when they try to do shit but all the tanks where unis win a lot are amazing at dealing damage and defendor isn't.

    After another session of defeat farming with E25. SU-152 > E25, on any map, in any match up, all day everyday. When top tier SU turn around corner and stab them in the face for 700, when bottom tier you can lob HE shells (or still smash them for 700 heat in the face). No tacticool bushkemp fuckshit like E25, no low dmg peashooter weakling shit, just smash them in the face... (and SU-152 > ISU also, the extra accuracy is not worth having less mobility, less camo (relative) and less alpha dmg (relative), ISU suk dik now, SU-152 did fine so far (i now jinxed it and will have shit game after shit game)) Edit, and speaking of unconventional: Russian (heavy) tanks now seem too suck, Obj 257 is terrible, ISM was awefull, ISU is shit, Obj 705 is so far a pile of shit, 704 was as expected shit (i said in version 1 T30 > 704, and its now T30 >>>>> 704 it seems...) IS8 not much luck (read as in: shit games) and all versions of IS (IS, IS2-S, IS2) i played also suked dik (can also be t7 heavy mm beiing bad). Only SU-152 (ironic...) and T-44 seem to still work, every other russian tank, not so much... It seems all heavys suffer from bad accuracy making long range combat / pixel sniping next to impossible, while the awefull aimtime makes it even worse, the armour no longer works (everyone has a though turret + pike nose is just bad armour profile) and for the first time since like ever: Russian(heavy) tanks are not good, even the IS3 is no longer king, the IS3, the saviour of the motherland, the posterboy of soviet superiority

    That sums up so many of the problems with this game.

    Nah, I think it's a topic that's very divided in opinion - I liked every game that didn't pen(oneshot) me with arty better with how it was before, but if arty has it in for me (which it did, FAME tag and XVM before anonymizer) then the current way of arty is so much more better to survive/fight. It's not instadeath - I take 3-600 HP which sucks dick and they can do it more reliably, but at least I get a warning that the fucking shitter is aiming at me for next time - similar to why ammoracks from full HP and 183s really shit the bed in gameplay - because you don't get a chance to react and save it like this entire game fundamental approach to strategy is based on. (Gather info - make a move - take in new info - readjust to new situation) and this cycle just ends with oneshots instead of having some methodical explanation to dying. I had a Prokh game in shitbarn before it got nerfed without arty, I played mid and had oneshot 5 tanks with 5 shells within the first second they were spotted and that's exactly what I mean. (That Tortoise driving up the hill getting lit for a second has his game ended, was the same for 4 other people on their team) - the shitty thing is that doing this to people feels fucking fun but the opposing end really hates it.

    Arty is worse to play against with stun and rof than it was with higher damage.

    Here's one to trigger a lot of people: Despite all its flaws, WoT is actually a really good and fun game, which why despite all the complaining from people here on the forums, you all keep on coming back to play it time after time. It's either that, or you're all addicted harder than a 3-bottles-of-cheap-win-a-day alcoholic and should seek professional help.

    and the ISU was at one time the highest damage non-artillery in the game at 750 alpha. it should've stayed that way. then we got 850 damage TD's, 750 damage heavies, 1000+ damage TD's etc.

    I think every competent player who fundamentally understands the matchmaking why premiums should be worse. (When’s the last time you had a full tier 8 without a Progetto?) I think that shouldn’t have to be considered controversial as it should be common sense. I have some serious ones too: - Credit inflation (while a result of good things, like SHs and FL) made the game worse. It’s an easier time for everyone, that’s why it’s worse. - serB was good for the game - Tier 10 should be more expensive to play, doubling the cost of dying but survived damage repair and ammo costs being the same - tier 8 needs an MM nerf (it is like playing tennis with the net down guys, admit it) - every third of what would be a full t8 game right now as a t8 player should be 357 (7-8-9) tier 10 isn’t bad, just hard - mechanical prowess is finite in wot, turret rotation and bloom bottlenecks hand-eye and reaction time - it’s a tank (i get it) so it’s a necessary evil but intuition (to anticipate and make up for the fact that it is a tank) isn’t something you can build gameplay reliably upon and i think it’s much of the reason the game is in it’s current state pretty much the entire playerbase is blaming way too many of their own misplays and chalk it up to arty when it’s not HE ammo as a concept might have done wonders IRL but in game it is literally in 99 of cases a big old ”let me feel relevant so i can feel as a better player button” - removing it and everything that has to do with it (tanks that can fire other rounds can stay) games should be 20 minutes, 15 on assault garbad ban killed forum activity (Guy had to go, but I still think it’s true)

    AGAGAHAHAHHAHKSF TGHAT FUCKING CHINA 122 HEAT SHELL SPEED NERF 64) M/S I AM WZ-ING Good to see the 121 further solidifying its place as the best russian medium though. (430u is disowned) Having the turbo on it is already mad fun on so being able to bully people at 62 km/h is extra spicy.
