  1. They nerfed it into the ground, only stat they didn't touch was armor and view range.... 440alpha with longer reload, worse gun handling than a Defender, heavy tank agility and sluggish medium mobility. With that gun handling it's just not worth it anymore, M4Rev has half the bloom for just 50 less alpha. https://thedailybounce.net/2018/06/01/world-of-tanks-supertest-chimera-changes/
  2. I'm aware of the situation with the new models and that there is no solution atm, so my post was in no way criticizing kittens. The situation is that they changed the armor model format so they can't be read out (well, technically they can, but nobody knows how). He has to use the models from 9.22, so if stuff changes in the client things go weird.
  3. kittens should really pull down the armor model from tanks.gg with the amount of confusion this is creating. I am 95% sure there was nothing planned and therefore nothing scrapped either in terms of armor changes, the "improved side armor" refers to adding the track links to the armor model. The additional armor zones this created completely glitched out the model on tanks.gg because of the new 1.0 filetype.

    SU-101 Wow!

    They did the same to the SU-100M1 but that one is very good now, gun is meh and its sluggish, but the armor actually makes up for it. The whole problem on the 101 is that the armor they gave it isn't useful, 80% of the time you have to play the same sniping playstyle of the pre-buff 101 but now with a gun that misses the broad side of a barn every 13s.

    SU-101 Wow!

    Yep, this tank is now amongst the worst tanks in the game, alongside stuff like Churchill VII and pre-buff AMX AC 48. The tier 7 works because it can actually brawl against same tier and even tier 8 tanks, but for some reason the tier 8 has weaker armor on a bigger superstructure with lower to the ground engine deck so it struggles at brawling even against its own tier and I've even had plenty of tier 6 tanks just overmatch the engine deck. Having one of the longest stock grinds in the game is the cherry on top I guess.
  6. Maybe you should've turned on your brain before making an angry forum post. This and the T32 FL are most likely rentals for the upcoming Frontline mode, just like the (R) tanks were at tier 10.
  7. I enjoy marking these weird novelty tanks and I feel like I should be able to do it. Marking with the 100mm just defeats the purpose of this tank and it would feel as about as much of an accomplishment as marking the 260 platooned with 2 arty. That said, I finally successfully completed my mission. Was bumping around in the mid-90s for quite a while, I think the influx of spaghetti tanks did help pushing it over the edge.
  8. In 1.0 WG has removed all the "sneaky" positions on Abbey, the side of the monastery is inaccessible and the elevated part on the right is not climbable anymore except from a single chokepoint on the 8-line. Those were pretty much the only position i knew to play anything that can't brawl in. What can those tanks do now on this map, is there something I'm missing? I feel like its literally play like a TD and camp base now because every position is a straight up brawl.
  9. Looks like no mark for me, can't get it above 88% Too slow to get itself into strong support positions, too slow to get out of a lost position, too trash dpm to dish out enough damage in todays meta and the gun depression denying 2-3 shots every single game is just the cherry on top. Maybe 10cm would help, but I just can't be bothered to play it with that pile of garbage of a gun.

    Type 62

    Decent and fun light nowadays because it didn't get its dpm and vr trashed like some of the other lights, but its definitely not best in tier like the Type 64 and GF at their tiers. Also make sure you know what you want to use it for, if you want to make money be prepared to stick with AP, prem ammo is crazy expensive.
  11. keep in mind the text says engine and stabilization get buffed on the T95E6 which is not shown in the picture
  12. Finally a tier 8 medium that is fun to play, didn't expect to ever see that.
  13. Last sentence is important, the gun is better on the CDC, if you really wanna call it "better", because same bloom, +10 alpha and actually competitive dpm. The platform is obviously way way worse.
  14. Have you downloaded the test server and checked how it actually runs with your current card? It should run pretty much the same as with the old engine, and I wouldn't be suprised if your CPU is the actual bottleneck here.
  15. Eh, then I'm already pretty close to maxing out the potential of this, 1950 dpg even with overextending multiple times already. This extremely low dpm gun just can't do more in 3-minute-game meta. Expected a tier 8 heavy to be a bit higher than that.
  16. Is this thing still supposed to work in 2018 meta? Armor bounces almost nothing (unless low tier), it doesn't outtrade anything, it doesn't outdpm anything and even the "shoot people on the engine deck" trick only works half the time. Am I missing something?
  17. Pretty easy to tell from looking at high ranks, per side its something like 8x SConq, 3xWZ 5A, 3x 907, 1x 430U. Occasionally even a 268v4
  18. If they give it 30% higher hp/t and turning rate it could be a pretty fun pure active spotter, like this it's just not mobile enough to play that role in an effective and fun way. Could be the VBL/Wiesel of World of Tanks. And come on, at least reduce the aim time on the gun.
  19. Most fun I've ever had marking a tank, didn't even plan to do it at first Final stats (in my last 27 battles in january I was averaging just below 2k dpg + 2.3k assist) Also, this disgusting meme of a tank
  20. CDC can definitely keep up with the FV but I would still give it the edge because 300 more dpm. The gun that is, not the tank.
  21. After playing some more games in it it seems like the first impression was a lie. It still gets penned in every possible angle into the turret and it still has the worst t8 medium gun in the game by a huge margin. Pointless tank
  22. I picked up the (wireless!) G602 for 29€ some time ago and I really enjoy it, can't notice a different to my previous cable mice and it fixes my issue of the cable always breaking. You might find better stuff with your budget though. And no fancy RGB rainbows.
  23. I wouldn't say it's the same, its pretty strong when using gun depression, the cheeks go up to 240-250. Quite impressive that it's such a bad tank that its still not good after 4 buffs, they really needed to either keep the original turret buff or give the gun some love like they did with the Cents. Also realizing again how stupidly expensive the shells are, 11k ammo cost in a 2k game...
  24. Mostly, yes. The mobility buff is most noticeable for sure, turret only works against lower tiers unless using a decent amount of gun depression. Its definitely better than before, but I still wouldn't call it good with that derpy gun, no dpm and unreliable turret.
