Single Status Update
Reinstall happening. What has changed? What do I need to be aware of? I think I last played in 2017. (Had a baby so that kind placed a RIP on the gaming life.)

@Private_Miros then maybe the differences between tanks make steamrolls more problematic as the gaps between tanks that can cope with steamrolls and can't are bigger? I know it may be confirmation bias too but It still seems strange. Maybe it's that more games are stalemates so steamrolls are more visible as compared to them? Spitballing here but I'm looking for reasons.
I do think you might be on to something that games aren't necessarily shorter, but when things do go, the clean up is faster, since tanks generally deal more damage in shorter times, and are generally also faster moving than they used to.
And yes, for the same reason I do feel it's harder to now deal as much damage as you could in a less meta tank, since you compete with tanks that put out far more damage per shot or per burst than your measly 240 alpha damage at tier 8, meaning that if things do go fast, you have very little opportunity to deal your share of damage, while they can do so in a one or two bursts or a at least fewer shooting opportunities.
Yeah that may be the case. I was never annoyed by steamrolls in pre nerf Leo PTA because it was fast and dealt a lot of damage easily. Playing 50tp for example is a pain. I don't know how to deal over 4k damage on a regular basis with it. Strangely that wasn't a problem with Jtiger but that's probably because of 350 pen offseting the speed.
