  1. True in more ways than one, M5 was fun with the old Scott turret and 75mm, then was nerfed into the ground. Nice to see all the other lights catching up.
  2. Why is this not Strv K. Kranvagn hull with Centurion 3 (elite tier 8 turret) and 105mm Natogun. That would mean slightly more upper plate (5mm), more lower plate (40mm), 35mm side armour compared to the current tier 10 and would make it a decent heavium (historically lighter with proper (higher) engine HP. But no. Clone. Yays.
  3. I originally wanted this to be a tier 7... the gun had 300 HEAT pen in reality.... which is not too terrible for a derp at tier 7 on a paper armoured turretlessTD. Its also a shame it does not have the historical -16 depression and 230hp engine.
  4. Judging a game like AW in it's first pre-release patch is like judging wot by looking at a video from 2012. It's utter garbage, and not relevant anymore. I don't mind AW terribly now, and will like it a lot in B 2.0.
  5. 3v3 and 5v5 on reduced maps is also being introduced ASAP to restart PvP on NA.
  6. The interesting news today of 5v5 PvP on smaller maps segmented from the larger ones (up to the new 1.8x1.8 one) is also interesting, because 3v3 or 5v5 with platooning disabled could be sustainable on NA. I mean, NA PvE runs well and requires 5 players, 6 should not be an issue.
  7. It currently is, but I did some testing of the total balance pass coming out in February (early model) (you can see a version in Russian streams) and its damn good. The main problem wont be the game or developers (modelers moving to russia but balance is staying at OE), it will be population. Population is at a point where its a death spiral caused by itself, and it will need both Steam and major streamers to kickstart it. The game itself will have exceptionally fair power scaling, for one, and the removal of overhead arty... so there is that. Seriously. Post Balance 2.0 AW will be better than wot, especially with how wot is going downhill. The problem is that it could be / probably will be too late.
  8. Nobody is saying a tier 9 and tier 5 will be equal, but they will be way closer than now. Health scaling based on weight, not tier, means the Abrams is quite healthy. But a M60A2, which can easily pen the very week steel lower plates of Soviet MBTs, is equally heavy as a T-90 and can out-trade with better gun damage. Abrams can also easily be penned by tier 105mm APDS from the side. Its not about making scaling nonexistent, its about removing scaling for the hell of it. More hard stat scaling than before, with far less soft stat scaling. Weakspots also will have logic to them, instead of being idiotic hatch-driven pixelhunting shitshows.
  9. I reccomend everyone tries it out as soon as balance 2.0 hits, but not before. IMHO Steam and B.20, combined with good reviews from major streamers / youtubers could kick it up.
  10. Personally, I think you should only free XP to tier 6 elite. Tier 6 elite has the same hull of this premium, a better 75mm, better horsepower, no autoloader, and -12 depression.

    Someone GIFed the amazing camera work at the debate. This happened.

  12. Yes it is. http://imgur.com/a/Q5zGG Specific version needed.
  13. Arguable. The 122mm had better penetration than the 88mm L/56 (less than the KT 88) but could not pen the KT frontally. Instead, it could blast it with HE and kill it. "Shot #1. Target: upper front plate. Shell: 122 mm HE-fragmentation. Result: spalling across an area 300 mm by 300 mm. The welding seam between the upper front plate and the machine gun port burst on 3/4 of its circumference. Internal bolts holding the machine gun ball were torn off. The welding seam between the upper front plate and the right side burst, and the right side was displaced by 5 mm. The tank caught fire internally." http://tankarchives.blogspot.ca/2013/03/is-2-vs-german-big-cats.html In terms of crew comfort, IS-3 was terrible. But both tanks could kill each other from any combat range and the IS-3 sure was less expensive and had better anti-infantry performance (which is what 90% of engagements are about)
  14. I could get behind that with one important caveat. Why bother with real tanks? If you want to depict real vehicles, you should depict them with integrity in regards to the design, history etc. Now, I think a fun game and an unexplored market is a game like wot with invented tanks, shields, missiles, etc. However, balancing with no regard to the real stats of the tank is just absurd. Why bother modeling a real tank if it shits on the designers of it? (and physics)
  15. Turning every statistic into wargaming bullshit and screwed up models to boot. Example: The tier 5 Ikv 103 we saw today. -12 instead of -20 depression because reasons 175 engine power instead of 230 because more reasons Example: Turning the heavies into totally functionally opposite of their real design. Example: Ignoring real serviced Swedish tanks that fit the tree and using paper tanks for no reason. Example: Using an invented tank at tier 8 as a premium.
  16. Half of Trump supporters are deplorable. Half of Clinton's supporters are deportable. 

  17. Same tank with another gun, bigger engine and roof basically. Same size.
  18. There is a chance that this tank with a 105 derp and twice the hp/t is the tier 4 so... yeah. Ikv 103 could be just as fun if the 105 handles well. Straight-up better T40 TD.
  19. Tier 3 is out, pros being that it has -20 depression, cons being that it has 150 health and a 170 damage gun/
  20. Every single other tank in the line is turretless, and they could have used a service tank with the Cruiser IV 40mm Bofors (4 shot pew pew) if they wanted a turret so... I doubt it has a turret
  21. I am not creative enough with insults to describe Wargaming. They are fucking RETARDS on an EPIC scale due to this heavy tank model. Do you see it? They modeled the turret too far back so they could not give the tank (I assume) the right amount of gun depression. THEREFORE instead of fixing the goddamned model they made the gun WAY higher in the turret to allow it to depress to -15. All in all, it looks nothing like it should, and has massively overbuffed frontal armour (more than the tier 10 should have) reduced top speed, and extra weight. and therefore will be a close range corridor autoloader instead of a slower 50 100 with gun depression. These fucking clowns could give WoT 6+ new lines per year if they spent 1% of their 35 million dollar esports budget on tank research. Fuck em, if the competition were not also braindead morons WoT would be dead. Long live market failure. TLDR: Armour is way better than it should be, with the gun misplacement being a plus in-game, but WG are lazy and wanted a corridor autoloader that took no skill instead of a heavium 50b with more depression and less speed.
  22. Conferred with a Japanese tank expert. Answer in a nutshell: Chi-To was just a worse tank. It is longer and taller (but thinner) than M4 because of the inadequancy of the transmission system and weaker+diesel engine (thus needing to be larger for the same power)." Worse transmission made it taller but also with worse ground clearance, which means utterly no upside. It also did not have safe ammunition storage and the sights were not as good. It was still pretty cramped as well. Unlike in WoT or in the fantasies of Belton Cooper, Sherman was the overall best tank of all in WW2 due to it's extraordinary (for the era) reliability, upgradability, price, comfort and also adequate firepower for the tanks it faced (irrelevant numbers of Tiger or Panther).
