Even QB says the Leopard 1 sucks and deserves a buff. I guess someone at WG allowed him to say so? Does this mean future buffs?
Or maybe they'll do what some people have been suggesting like downtiering the PTA and Leo1 and introducing the A1 as tier X.

@FavreFan4ever Type 5 is broken because of the armour and the retarded HE gun. If you take away the 500 fuck-you-hulldown-IS7 it is just a Japanese Maus.
The Leo would be balanced by not having armour so it will not bully lower tiers and carry in brawling maps or hold a line. Almost every med has some turret/hull armour that allows them to brawl or have a clip potential making them work even in close combat scenarios. Also the lowish alpha and mediocre dpm would stay. The only thing it needs is the gun that can snap and make every shot count. Even the K91 has some sort of armour with huge camo values.
High tier paper armor tanks have historically been broken only if they either have very polarized autoloader (WT E100 or TVP right when introduced), oneshotting capabilities (Shitbarn, even then I dont mind it much) or minmaxed gun with big alpha + great mobility (prenerf Grille, which wouldnt even be that dumb in current meta imo).
Leo 1 doesnt have neither high alpha or autoloader so its almost impossible for it to be broken unless it either has +3.5k base DPM or utterly overkill pen (more than TDs). I cant imagine Leo 1 ever becoming even good, let alone broken, if they dont SERIOUSLY buff it.
