    EndlessAgony got a reaction from hazzgar in Tier X Polsky - the Levandowsky   
    You are mostly correct.
    Penetration RNG was reduced to 15%, prem ammo damage is 15-20% less than regular ammo, the MM is only +/- 1, the maps aren't as much of corridorshit. There are still some issues within the game with balancing, but they are not as pronounced - the pinnacle of OP-ness at tier ten is IS-4 for having a buffed UFP that some tanks have problem penning from direct front. Yeah.  
     
    In general, the balancing is much better overall with less powercreep from new tanks and other garbage like that. As for the Leo 1 which was mentioned - it is actually very popular for pubstomping from what I had seen, especially after the prem ammo nerf. I don't have it yet, nor did I have it in large WoT, so I can't comment more on it. It's not that popular in CW tho, but it was sometimes used as a scout before Batchat 25t was introduced a while back.
    And the most important thing of all: ARTY_WAS_NEVER_IN_THE_GAME
    That is not to say the devs don't screw up - they created a new equipment system a while back and saddled it with timers skippable with gold that made you wait 30 days for unlocking all slots at tier X and the slots could be only unlocked by some retarded hard-to-getium currency much like bonds - but you had to use it for regular equipment, not improved, but after tons of moaning removed that crap recently and even gave us cheaper gold packs to appease us. Also, general pricing is much better - tech tree T8 prems cost 7200-7600 gold regardless of class. The non-gold economy is much better as well, payouts of XP and creds are pretty good and with prem time, it's fairly easy to get a decent amount of credits even in tier X battles.
    The only glaring issue the game still has is abundance of lootbox garbage, using them to sell new premiums with shitty % chance to get one. However, even this has been improving recently and they have started selling them directly about two months after the lootboxes.
     
    It never ceases to amaze me how they can have a decent 'mobile' game with bearable pricing and game not infested by P2W garbage while the large PC game reminds me more of Dungeon Keeper Mobile with every new patch. The only thing missing at this point are the timers, though at least those are unlikely after the outrage they caused with Blitz players. Then again, this is WG we are talking about...
    TL;DR: Blitz > WoT

    EndlessAgony reacted to Mikosah in Careful it might be learning - WG goes back on pref tanks changes   
    Sounds to me like WG had this grand utopian vision- superheavies all over the place, tight corridors to funnel them into close combat, bottom tiers in total awe of all this armor they simply can't pen (desperately reaching for dad's credit card so they can free exp superheavies of their own), gold being loaded left and right, and every single shot bouncing. Every time a round is fired, cue cash register sound effect. And the players, they love it! Look at muh armuh! I am steel! I am invincible!
    Just a minor hiccup along the way that those damn pesky players actually want to pen the enemy sooner or later. And they don't like being bottom tier? Heresy!
    The one thing that's so odd in all this isn't the disconnect between WG's desires and ours, but rather that they have been in such utter disbelief that we didn't like 3/5/7. They were so sure that it was going to be a success, that being bottom tier was still fun, that taking away premium MM would be easy, et cetera. They just can't handle the idea that 3/5/7 is cancer, being bottom tier 80% of the time sucks, and that at the end of the day, potato and unicum alike want to put rounds on target and see positive damage numbers without breaking the bank.

    There is always a chance this is their way of caving with some shred of dignity intact. If they just increase the 10/5 and single tier games a lot at expense of the frequency of 3/5/7 it could be the game saver they need. Imagine if the odds were 1/3 for all three, that would be a revolution that would bring a lot of people back.
    Hahaha, j/k, they're idiots.

    EndlessAgony reacted to Zepherex in Careful it might be learning - WG goes back on pref tanks changes   
    "In its current state, the pref mm tanks often fails to ensure proper rotation between the top/middle/bottom of the list. Getting matched at the same position for several battles in a row slows down progression and degrades the overall experience for absolutely all vehicles. Unfortunately, simply tweaking the algorithm has proven to be impossible.
    We artificially lowered the probability of getting preferential Premiums in +1 Tier and same-tier battles. However, this created more problems by increasing the number of single-tier battles and waiting times for not only Tier VIII and IX but tanks tiered VI-X and we're too stupid to know how to fix it.
    So we looked into redesigning the underlying matchmaker rules to improve 3/5/7, 10/5, and 15 template distribution. This was to to prevent cases of spending 80% of in-game time in 3/5/7 battles at the bottom of the list. Now you spend every game bottom tier unless you're a BR.
    As you can understand, to find the optimal solution is simply... impossible! We simply can't and won't try anymore. We have already laid down a plan and work on the matchmaker has failed. We will give more information on how you can go fuck yourselves at a later date."

    On the 4-track tanks, those "fins" that mounted the tracks doubled as the fuel tanks. Side shots that make it under the treads should regularly set these on fire. (Should.)
    The low traverse rate and poor performance on mushy ground were some of the reasons for canceling the project, so it's amusing to see that's been fixed.

    I just love how this vehicle, which would be nigh impossible to traverse at any even remotely sensible rate, somehow gets better traverse rates than most T10 heavies.

    EndlessAgony reacted to Buck_Wild in Supertest: CHIMERA (Tier VIII British Medium! with 490 alpha!)!   
    "Of course, there has to be a balance: a striking feature (such as great alpha damage) must be compensated for by another not so remarkable. In the case of the Chimera is its penetration: with 202 mm with standard ammunition it is far from being the best of its class / level, so you should look for ideal firing positions and target the weakest points of the enemy."
    Don't worry WG gave it 202 standard pen to balance it.

    Gets the highest alpha of any medium tank in game including tier 10s... And it somehow gets good accuracy and aim time as well??
    It also has good armor and is faster than most tier 8 mediums.
    What is powercreep?!
     
    Ps. Just noticed it gets -10 gun depression as well lmao

    It's clear you never worked in a large company if you think it's impossible for an entire department to be run by idiots. Using your logic Kodak had run its company to the ground on purpose resisting the technology of digital cameras they invented on their own, Nokia resisted going with Android. You are very naive. You are in for a harsh reality check unless you are very lucky in life or have a very specific job. Most people are either bad at their jobs or unmotivated, many competent people at big companies are not listened too if there is an incompetent person leading a team. 
     
    Also if a company contineously makes the same mistakes, over and over then they are idiots. Also obj 268v4 is broken even in non corrior map meta. It's less broken but it's still 10x better than every other TD out there, better than most heavies and quite a few meds.

    I'd like to take this tool, give him a tea-spoon and then pit him in an arena against a fully plated knight on a plated horse. Once he manages to defeat said knight with the spoon, he can go back to his job as he may have learned a valueable lesson. If not, he gets a soup-spoon, but has to face a horse archer this time around.
