    Platypusbill got a reaction from Expendable_Lad in Contrary to my suspicions, SP armour got buffed   
    I noticed 9.8 supertest changes can now be seen on gamemodels3d, so I took a look at what would be more or less the final version of the Super Pershing.
     
    Now, before anyone who read my starts shouting "told you, should have waited for the final version you paranoid shitlord", I'd like to point out that based on the model originally scheduled for release in 9.7 the SP was indeed going to get nerfed. The two spaced armour plates being modeled separately meant the 2x overmatch mechanic was going to be applied twice on the section where they overlapped and all angles got nerfed. I was pretty sure they had overdone the angle changes (on the current supertest model, certain angles actually got buffed while others were nerfed), but if nothing was going to fundamentally change, it would still become weaker.
     
    Then this image was posted on Rita's blog.
     

     
    I was skeptical because a buff was simply impossible if the model that was available to me back then was an indication, and all numbers are massively off (they do not seem to factor in normalisation at all), but I did consider the possibility that WG had completely fucked up the model previously and the second layer of spaced armour was supposed to cover the entire hull.
     
     
     
    This is precisely what was done on the most recent change.
     

     
    The effect of this is that the lower and upper edges of the hull became stronger as they previously had only one spaced armour plate covering them instead of two. Also, the flat section between the crew hatches got thickened from 101.6mm to 139.6mm. The one thing that did not change compared to my prior evaluation is that the lower UFP actually got a bit weaker.
     
    Haven't really looked at the changes to the turret and such, I was mainly concerned about the front hull.
     
    Calculating the armour of the SP is very complicated as you have to calculate up to three plates separately and also figure out the increased normalisation for the spaced plates. Because of this and me recently discovering the use of Excel to perform calcluations, I set up a spreadsheet that compares the effective armour of the two versions.

    Platypusbill reacted to Garbad in Win Rate vs. Wn8   
    One thing I learned in the last few weeks tho -- its not actually my DPG that is my limited factor in wn8.  Its my KPG.  Because wn8 gates maximum wn8 based on KPG, people who do their damage early get a lower score than those who sit back and farm kills endgame....despite the fact that early damage is far superior for winning.
     
    Wn8 really is all about chai sniping from the red line in a light tank, and who gives a rats ass if you lose.

    It only shows if you show side in your russian meds as well
     
    Your situational awareness is poor, as is your armor angling. You were able to sneak in some shots, but those often came at too high a cost.
     
    The real moment the game was going to be poor for you was the opening, you pushed your P2 up too aggressively against heavies who had no trouble taking position on you.

    I only needed to see the first one to see all I needed to see, and yes, it is worth an extremely harsh beating.
     
    I do have some questions.
     
    1. How did you get to an E100 to begin with?
    2. How did you play all the tanks up to there if your armor management is that terrible?
    2a. Why do you like showing side and rear armor so much?
    2b. Why do you even bother with 6th sense if it's clear that you disregard it anyway?
    2c. Have you never learnt to sidescrape?
    3. Why are you using AP?

    I watched the first replay and noticed that your exposure management and armor handling is quite VERY suspect

    It has infinite ammo so I brought a huge amount to spam at hull down t29s and such.  HE always does damage.
