    These kinda answers make me kinda wanna ddos the site and never look back so you assholes can move on with your lives.
    To the original poster...it used to be a good site but now its just filled with hateful people comparing epeens.  I would suggest just reading through old content on the forums as thats still useful and never typing a word on the forum or you'll be driven away like above.
      Theres still some good pointers from old threads but these fools are gonna drive away all the new users and related ad revenue relentlessly until people get tired of donating money to Never to pay for this site and it goes off the air.  I mean wtf guys even the WoW site this forum was based on wasnt this bad at the end and i would know i was a member of that one too.

    I remember the chatroom that used to be on this site and the men of culture that used to meet there. Some of that spirit moved to the discord server, but even so it just hasn't been the same. Even the certifiable freaks of nature are all acting like normies these days. Have the good times returned at last?

    Archaic_One got a reaction from ZXrage in Tier 10 medium tank rebalance   
    This all started when they decided to give everything gun depression.  Now its reached its logical absurd extreme and we have a -13 degree depression tank that shows less skin than prom night in mormon country when its in siege mode.
    How hard would it be for WG to just shave 30mm off of the 430U cupolas and watch the stats for a month.  The whole problem with WG is that the notion of incremental balance is unheard of to them.  Hell, they are releasing big patches every few weeks lately, adding/subtracting a few mm at a time would not only give them better data - it would also arouse a lot less outrage from their customers.
    Hell, I don't even play anymore - I just like fanning the flames a bit.  WG still provides me with plenty of fuel.

    I never thought it needed to be removed, they just needed to repair some of the OP TD camps overwatching the cap.  It was always one of my favorite maps because you could actually flank properly.

    Some of what I'm going to say isn't unconventional but I feel like some of the main reasons for others' strife in-game currently isn't being addressed correctly (focused on NA of course):
    99% of the playerbase is undoubtedly braindead now. There are maybe 2-3k players out of the entire server who have some clue of how to play this game, and even less that actually know how to play like a teammate at this point.  WarGaming catered to said shitlords for so long that the game is basically the RU server, only with FAR less players playing on it so EVERY game you have to struggle to get a game that isn't a blow-out unless you're on the other end of it. - I called that this would happen a few months before I officially quit the WGLNAa few years back, and I couldn't have been more right about what I said was going to happen back then. A lot of the maps are fucking garbage now. I think that may be because I don't feel like sitting in the back of the map like a bitch all game (because what's the point of playing so sweaty if there is no end-game reward anymore anyways(or due to the mass amount of TD players playing now)), but as others have said recently, playing aggressively and simply out-playing others via brawling is useless when it comes to actually trying to win games most of the time.  Maps such as Glacier/Malinovka/Prokhorovka are all shit when playing 15v15. Glacier is a matter of whoever wins North first loses due to the mass amount of dickheads rushing into an open field after winning it. Mali is too open with such a lack of pushing ability that it hurts my brain after all of these years, and Prok is the same. I want to consistently be able to push the momentum and be rewarded for being the better player. I rather not have to sit back like a bitch for the second half of the game because half of the other team is full of TDs that will 2-3 shot me from the back of the map after I win my flank single-handedly. On the topic of TDs- WG seems to be making more and more of these BS fake TDs. The TS-5 is an extraordinary example. Why is it that a tier 8 TD is allowed to play more like a heavy tank than any other at tank at the same tier? Seriously, the fact that I have to go out of my way to aim at the bottom of the front of the tank or at the flat front of the cupola while I get shot and insta-penned in the same tier tank is simply retarded. I 100% believe that TDs such as the T28/T95/E3 should be an extreme rarity in TDs with how they are allowed to be played; and yet it seems as if WG is making it the standard for TDs. High pen, good accuracy, decent mobility, amazing camo, great pen tier-for-tier, and all to compensate for what? A lack of a turret? Bitch please. All-in-all I've told others but the only reason I'm back for the time being is due to my friend getting interested in playing this game right now for whatever reason. Personally I find it in a MUCH worse spot than it was in a couple years back, especially when you get into the minute details of tank balance and match-making changes. The game is practically dead in NA, and for good players it is so unbearable I want to slam my head over a keyboard every other match I have to play. I miss the good old days when ther majority of players in a server were those that you could rely on to at least hold W for half a second when needed, but instead this game has become more camp-esque than it was back in early-mid 2011. 
    Also IS-3A is fucking broken btw. I understand people are comparing it to the 703, but if you have a problem reaching 2.8-2.9k DPG in that thing, you're doing something wrong.

    I didn't download this game to spot, I didn't download this game to sit in a clicker and drop orbital HE, I didn't download this game to hide in a bush and blind fire a HESH round halfway across the map into somebody elses bush.  I downloaded this game to drive my Patton to the rubble pile on Himmelsdorf and see how many people I could punch in the dick before I get punched in the dick.

    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.

    Sigma nerf ruined the game.
    Another sigma nerf with 1.0 (I swear this happened) made it nearly unplayable for me.
    The IS-4 got buffed only because equipment gives it extra HP now.
    Tier 10 is the worst it has ever been.
    +4/-2 mm was better than the current iteration on NA.
     
    Aggressive play has never been less rewarding and it ruins any enjoyment I might have gotten out of coming back.

    tier 8 isn't balanced, and that's why I think it is.

    by and large, people play 8s to grind silver and they do it in the broken prems of their choice. there are more broken prems than there aren't and the tech tree tanks people do play, e.g. Roomba, 53TP, Charioteer, are very strong anyway, strong enough that full tier 8 games feel like tier 8.5.
    basically, when everyone is overpowered, no one is. (god have mercy on your soul if you're grinding a 110 or smth)
    the second thing that makes 8s better is that it's less campy. people are playing prems, and they're there to make bank not minimise loss as is what tends to happen at the higher tiers. therefore they're a lot more liberal with their HP and are mostly willing to go with quick risky plays that maximise reward if it all works out. people over-extend all the time at this tier, like what used to happen with 9s as well, and you have to over extend a certain amount to counter those fast pushes.
    third thing is less arty presence, which I think is a result of people playing 8s for the credits, because tier 8 games are too fast for arty to do much, and because there aren't any good tier 8 arty, or at least as good as the abomination that is the M53/55.
    OTOH I don't think tier 9 balance is any worse than it used to be, at least not bad enough to seriously affect gameplay. none of the reward tanks expect the 50t are actually straight upgrades over their techtree counterparts (e.g. the AE Phase 1 is worse than the post buff M103, I reckon). What makes it shit to play is people spamming big alpha TDs and arty and other HE spammers. The TD/HE spam happened because of the removal of silver-pennable weakspots from heavies, and people now had to find a way to negate armour. The T-10 used to be ultra strong around 2 years ago when people were still stingy with gold and HE spamming was not much of a thing. Usually, mediums would counter TDs, but with corridors and 1.0 bushes that's harder than ever. It goes back to @Archaic_One;s gripe with there not being many real tanks around. Why play real tanks when you get punished for it? 
    Tier 9 MM is also much rougher than before thanks to tier 8 only games being the norm now. You get pulled to tier 10 around half the time these days and that's never a recipe for fun, between the increased arty/TD presence at tier 10, and the unpennable reward vics like the 279 and the Chieftain.
    Due to the MM changes, support oriented tier 9s seem to have aged better than the bullies. I don't play enough 9s these days to be sure.
