    Ogopogo got a reaction from EvilMonkee in EBR nerfs   
    My take on the whole EBR situation (because IMO its the EBR's that primarily are problem) stem from several things.
    Start by buffing the tier 10 lights so most of them actually feel like actually tier 10 vehicles (and this can mean improving their "medium" tank characteristics too). Even if its perfectly balanced as a tier 10 vehicle, it will be seen as either unbalanced or dominating when the only similar vehicles are notably worse.  Reduce the on the move accuracy. They nearly or feel like a tank that is just as accurate on the move as they have while stationary when playing against them, something that holds true for no other tank in the game. Have a consistent number of wheels-to-destroy-to-immobilize across the line. I'd recommend 4 wheels for complete immobilization (but practically less than that). Wheeled vehicles with more wheels seem significantly harder to effectively immobilize currently than those with fewer wheels Increase how much losing the first wheel degrades the mobility of a wheeled tank, and in general make the initial wheel loses have more of an effect. A single wheel right now can feel more like a slight impediment as opposed to something notable. Reduce mobility slightly, but generally just bring them in line so they play like a slightly more mobile light tank as opposed to something which is relatively removed from other light tanks.

    They really ought to bundle a number of equipment options together. Many are lackluster specific equipment that in no way stand up against generalist equipment

    A wargamming employee on reddit confirmed that is meant to be a %, not a km/h increase... Which makes it useless to even consider outside of anything but the fastest light tanks (because 5% of 50km/h is only 2.5km/h versus a gun rammer), and even then, I wouldn't touch it.

    On the note of powercreep, I think one thing that bugs me is its been so heavily relegated to tier 8 and up. We aren't seeing all tanks progressively gain a half tier, just the ones they really monetize. So when you actually get a tier 7 match it more closely resembles what WOT used to be. Meanwhile, driving a tier 7 in a tier 9 match more closely resembles what it felt like to be a tier 3 in a tier 5 match (outside of the really overpowered tier 3s)

    This is stupid. I have a number of issues with this.
     
    Removal of content which will later be issued as rewards or purchasable in game on special occasion (perhaps for inflated prices). It feels like they are removing previously unlock-able stuff to give themselves more to work with and encourage monetization. Removal of more iconic tanks and generally quite historical ones. Like it or not, one major draw of WOT is in the tanks. What does it say when tanks like the firefly or the hetzer are being removed? Some loss of mobility on a tech tree. As an example, from the Pz 4H you can research 4 tier 10 tanks currently. With the changes you can only research 1. Tiger P, 3 to 2. HWK 12, 2 to 1. Panther, 2 to 1. Just to pull examples from the German tech tree. Removal of tier 10's. Besides the obvious, this is absolutely horrible to players who aren't so aware of changes being made to the game. Some poor sod somewhere is working towards the AMX 30 as his first tier 10, and then fines that suddenly his tier 9 with 150,000 experience is made a reward vehicle and leads nowhere. (sorta) Are players who have researched the tanks going to recieve the tanks even if they don't have them in the garage? If you want any of the removed tanks, and they don't receive any tank (or don't offer experience refunds) seems like great way to sell some garage slots for those who don't have a ton of them.

    The reward tanks come in their top configuration. This about the jumbo for a moment.

    I think the changes have need to happen since the game launch; you can't balance a tank properly when it has a standard ammo and a "better in every realistic way" ammo. Now whether or not they manage the change alright it up to them, but I think there are more than a few tanks which have been propped up or weighed down by the widespread use of premium ammo. If wargamming plays the whole "collecting data" game they usually do, its going to suck. But if they actually do deliver on their promises in a reasonable time-frame for a change, it could end up leaving game balance in a much better spot.

    Also worth noting some of the replacements which are being made here; some tanks are being outright removed and replaced with another tank currently not in the game. Or tanks are being shifted up with another being added in its place.
    For instance, the A-20 is gone replaced by an uptiered BT-7 with a BT-5 added in. The M3 Lee is replaced with the T6 Medium. Crusader is at tier 6 (and a light again), and the tier 5 spot for the medium line gets the cavalier.

    Price aside, I'm heavily on the side of mechanically unique content not being exclusive to a mode or limited time exclusive. Non-mechanically unique content, fill your boots, but all this artificial scarcity, limited time purchase, or excluding those who cannot meet the requirements for reasons out of their control rubs me the wrong way.

    I've always thought they should do something for this, so crew-members with multiple roles would at least have some sort of increase to experience gain.
