    O-Ni

    Yea, O-Ni dodged 1.5 Jap HT nerfs for the most part, they only took 1 sec from its reload and gave it (irrelevant) alpha nerf to the HE shell. It does 10 less damage with non-pens than before when you consider HE mechanics, which isn't all that bad when you do ~300 on average (thats like...3% damage decrease?). The tank didn't get wrecked with nerfs like the O-Ho did. It also benefits from Equip 2.0 as you already said. Turbo is really good on this because of terrible top speed but surprisingly good specific power; it reaches 29 kph speed without any issues, and Hardening boost is quite big because of the massive HP pool it has (gets 1.7k HP at tier 7 lmao), though I'd imagine that things like Improved Rotation Mechanism or old friends like optics can work just fine over Hardening (I think turbo is pretty much mandatory on this tho). Some people won't still like it though; I used to dislike the O-Ni compared to all other Jap heavies, mostly because of the armor layout being pretty awkward even by Jap HT standards and the really shitty turret placement (its more in the back than say, the O-Ho, or at least it feels like it). Back in a day, I felt like the O-Ho was better, or at very least way more fun, but with a shit ton of powercreep at tier 8, especially when it comes to penetration compared to 2015-2016, MM changes and then the derp getting nerfed the O-Ho is just useless now. In return, the O-Ni being one of the few Jap HTs that are still playable made me appreciate it more. O-I and the O-Ni are the only Jap HTs where the derps are still usable; funnily enough, they're also the best ones in the line. Never really understood why WG gave the line idiotic derp guns, yet made the AP guns suck ass for the most part. I'd gladly lose derps if it meant getting actually decent, fun AP guns.
  2. Looking at the current list of tier 10 heavies, the Panzer VII and its branch could very well be next one to get buffs. Panzer VII isn't necessarily the worst heavy in the world, but as I highly doubt they want to touch stuff like the Type 5 any time soon (considering it got nerfed not too long ago), the Panzer VII being the next in the line would make sense to me. If the branch gets changes, the the VK B probably will as well. That being said, I have no idea whatsoever about WG's next plans when it comes to the tank balance; hell, I don't really know what WG has planned for 2021 (aside from crew 2.0 probably, I doubt that'll make it before that).
  3. 300 / 380 pen would be completely absurd on any tier 10 medium or heavy, no matter how dogshit it is right now. E 50 M with that pen could be "balanced"...if it had sub 2k base DPM. Wait, that's exactly something WG would actually do.
  4. For more accurate/complete stats, its already on tanks.gg on 1.10.1 client: https://tanks.gg/v11010ct/tank/obj-274a Soft stats are surprisingly terrible for a russian tank, so it probably won't be as broken as a lot of people thought. Gun handling is probably the worst in tier out of mediums, terrain resists are almost IS-7 levels (though there's hidden hidden stats (reason why 277 is more mobile than is-7 even though all the hard/hidden stats would indicate otherwise) so it could still be mobile) and so on. HP pool is oddly low and the hull armor is a lot worse than I thought, tho it still seems trollish. That being said that turret armor looks really dumb for a tier 8 MT, and the combination of that pen, alpha and DPM is still nasty even if the gun handling is abysmal. It can probably somewhat compensate the gun handling with the use of its dumb gold ammo (289 APCR is same as KV-4, which in return is almost Löwe levels of good, on a medium) and food.
  5. It also originally had 390 alpha, with that said crappy DPM. It was just a super boring, crappy version of the IS-3, so WG decided to make it "interesting"...by overbuffing the armor into oblivion and buffing alpha to 440.
  6. Yeah turbocharger is pretty good on anything reasonably slow. Type 5 with turbo has the same mobility as the E 100, makes a noticeable difference. Tanks like Maus/Type 5 already have a good bloom and slow speed, so Vstabs aren't necessarily a must-have either, so I dropped those too and now run mix of speed/survivability on form of hardening/turbo/rammer. Rammer still feels too important not-to-have. Full on survivability setup sounds interesting as well, but that means dropping either the turbo or a rammer, so meh.
  7. Two year old review with little amount of games played with the tier 5 on the release date, so my opinions of the tier 5 should be taken with a grain of salt (and the review in general, most of opinions are more or less the same but I'd rate the tier 7 higher now), but overall my opinions haven't really changed regarding the tank. I didn't like the tier 5, the combination of large size + no armor (even turret armor felt useless in most scenarios aside from not being HE pennable) + bad gun handling even for tier 5 made it really awkward to play. The pen and alpha as well as speed was nice but the gun trolled me to hell, it felt like it couldnt hit anything and if I went to close range I'd just get melted. It didn't feel particularly strong to me, but I've generally heard very mixed opinions of it so it might be better now than I rated it back 2 years ago. HP buffs might've also helped it, so it might be more fun to play than it was when I played it. The tier 6 is still undoubtedly fucking abysmal, though. What is even funnier is that the BUGI (upcoming tier 6 tank of the PL medium line) is basically the same thing as 40TP but just better; it has more armor, better mobility, gun dep and to make it even more insulting it gets the same gun BUT for some reason it gets better gun stats. The only advantage the 40TP has over the BUGI is the reverse speed (for some reason BUGI has trash reverse speed for a MT, which probably will make it awkward to play as well). The 40TP even had fairly reasonable power to weight ratio of around 16-17 hp/ton on supertest, I'm almost certain they INTENTIONALLY nerfed it purely to make it a free XP pit. It's one of the most obvious examples of intentionally shitty tank to make people waste free XP. Its just like a tier 6 AMX 65t. The 65T was likely balanced around its insane 257 / 325 mm pen it originally had on the supertest back in 2016, but that massive pen got giganerfed to below-average for tier 8 to fit the rest of the line with no stats getting compensated.
  8. T42 looks like an utterly pointless tank, no clue why they are wasting their time on yet another 90 mm single shot US medium, especially when it literally has nothing new over something like TL-1. I guess it's historical so that's cool I guess. T77 has stupidly fast clip reload so it can shit out 1k damage in 4 seconds, but that full magazine reload seems...ouch. I guess that's the gimmick - shit out damage super fast, but then have a crippled reload to balance. A shame that its yet another decent standard vehicle candidate wasted as a premium tank; it could've been either part of a minibranch (with MT autoloaders) or you could've put this as tier 9 at the place of T54E1 (make it basically a tier 9 T57), downtier T54E1 at tier 8 with 320-360 alpha and appropriate gun stats and maybe make T69 work at tier 7. Alternate tier 10 to T57 would've also worked but WG has scrapped the idea of alternate tier 10s, so eh. A crew trainer that is in line with the autoloader branch is nice and all, but wouldn't it work better as a HT if that was it's purpose? It was IRL a MT for sure, yes, but so was the T54E1 and it was redesigned as a HT to fit the line better.
  9. It clicks for 0-600 with non pens but will never pen anything. Keep in mind that is with prem HE, pleb HE does a bit less (type 5 situation all over again lol). 600 non-pens are disgusting but its inconsistent as hell and cant pen anything, and it still keeps the same accuracy. I highly doubt it'll be nearly as fun to play as now.
  10. Honestly I'm having the same feeling, the ST-II feels similar to 60TP in many ways but 60TP having consistent 750 alpha instead of either 440 alpha or situational 880 alpha with a lot heavier drawbacks (which, while high, is only 130 higher, and you get notable downsides for it) as well as bit better HEAT, larger caliber, more DPM (lol), better accuracy, useful HE and tiny cupola that is practically impossible to hit when hulldown makes the ST-II feel like a lidl 60TP in many ways. All ST-II really has is more flexibility with firing modes (but again, I'd rather take consistent 750 alpha), more side armor (which matters less than you'd think, it has hullcheeks and atrocious frontal armor so using the side armor is harder) and much better bloom, that's about it. Will likely still grind it since its a heavy and all but considering that I found the ST-II surprisingly boring (aside from the double barrel mechanic it is quite possibly the most generic tier 10 HT in the entire game), especially when I expected it to be potentially very enjoyable to me, I wont powergrind it like I initially planned. I don't know, once double barrel novelty goes off it really feels generic and boring as a tank. At least previous Russian HTs like 705A were somewhat unique without having to rely on gimmicks. Gimmicks can be cool, but I feel that double barrels, especially the ST-II, rely too much on their gimmick to be even remotely unique. Honestly I feel that the only reason why the 703 II (the premium) stands out is because it's stupidly strong, not just because of it's unique mechanics. The standard double barrels aren't that strong, ST-II in especial. Maybe I'm wrong and things will change when these tanks arrive on live server.
  11. Do type 5 heavy pls also this ^ Some aspects of the review (how he does firepower/armor/mobility and overall rating) does resemble my reviews a bit, but I don't think its intentional and it seems like a coincidence to me. Can't really tell if there are more refences, might be just that my memory is getting rusty. It's been too long
  12. Remember when this forum used to be a chill safeplace from all the idiots from official forums and in-game? Good times... Also this Dirizon dude really should fix his zero-key
  13. I think the TL-1 might be some kind of T95E2 replacement/spirital successor/something, E 75 thing is probably part of the E 100 rebalance (they likely want to wait a bit for the announcement) and Räumpanzer could just be a premium or some kind of speshul vehicle. That's my guess, but knowing WG all these 3 might just be premiums. I find it hard to believe for the E 75 thing to be a prem, though, since they just brought the VK 75.01K (and it's not even released yet). But we'll see, I guess
  14. Jokes on you I had full set of improved equipment on the O-Ho and improved rammer/vstab on the Type 5 took them off the O-Ho tho cus WG raped her to death ;__;
  15. We still do, don't worry You can still go choke on a cactus, though. ...on my "cactus" that is, KappaPride
