  1. I like the Turtle.... but I hesitate to actually call it "good". Its gun is overall better than the AT-15 [worse accuracy, but the +100 alpha more than makes up for it]. The armor is less effective than the AT-15's unless you go hull down, its cupola is much smaller but it has a very serious LFP weakspot that the AT-15 doesn't have. By far the Turtle's biggest problem is the inevitable comparison to the TS-5. It has almost equally effective armor, almost equally as high DPM, and a gun that actually works in high tier games. The only things the Turtle has going for it are [much] better gun depression and traverse angles, and the accuracy is just Meh instead of atrocious. oh yikes, so 1.7 is legit going to have almost nothing interesting going for it.
  2. 1.6.1 was also an extremely boring patch [imo the Turtle was the best part about it], but it at least had the excuse of being an X.X.1 patch. 1.7 is supposed to be a more major 1.X patch and.... yeah this looks boring as Hell. Even if double barrel tanks come to the CT next week it just begs the question.... WTF is the point of this first iteration? Like... does buying directives for credits actually need a week of CT server testing revolved around it?
  3. Those changes would look pretty good except for the 140mm side armor. WTF?
  4. Is it crazy to think that the FV215b might actually be the best choice out of the 3 available tier 10's?
  5. I wonder what spall liners will do? Will that 130 damage against a type 5 turn into 65 damage instead? Because if so then lol he spam would be such a waste of time. anyway, I can see what WG is going for with this. He shells out of most *normal* guns are practically worthless and this gives them at least some amount of consistency and utility. What they need to do now is fine tune the vehicles that rely on HE. If the KV-2 is stuck with its current reload, but now only does 330 damage, or basically becomes unplayable
  6. Wait, is there information about the tier 8 [nonprem] vehicle anywhere? I'm not seeing it.
  7. Yeah I'm probably just green at this point, down from light blue years ago, but I'm also going to be using this anonymizer. Why the hell not? What downside is there?
  8. lol I bought this thing because it ISNT bullshit overpowered. I will say that the 1.8 second intraclip reload is pretty nice. Only takes 4 seconds to dump its entire mag on something; faster than a lot of tanks will realize what is happening and then retreat. other than that; yeah I can see why the Lorraine or progetto would be considered better, even though I don’t own those anyway
  9. It depends entirely on that armor profile. Its an extremely armor-dependent vehicle and we haven't seen the actual armor layout.
  10. Hopefully this issue largely resolves itself once spremmo actually does less damage than standard shells.
  11. So Hall0 mentioned this in the Upcoming Changes forum section Which makes me wonder... what should WG to unfuck the Panther 88? I might be wrong, but I'm going to assume that dropping it to tier 7 is off the table. But what we have here is a Panther tank with the 88mm gun. The panther tank chassis isn't very good for tier 8, and frankly the 88mm gun isn't that good for tier 8 either. What could be done? I have a few ideas, none of them seem good though. 1. Artificially inflate the Panther 88's armor values. Basically turn it into a quasi-E50 for its tier. IMO it would be very strange for this tank to suddenly become more durable than the Panther II. It would work but, IMO, is the most boring option. 2. Artificially inflate the 88mm gun's hard stats. IDK what this would accomplish beyond just turning it into a weird Panther II with the L/100 gun. 3. Hyperbuff the soft stats. Give it the same DPM as the Jagdtiger 88. This option would maybe be a bit odd, but IMO it would be hilarious. 4. Turn it into the TurboPanther.
  12. Thank Fucking God. I actually legitimately liked the Panther 88 back in the day, but now 203 pen isn’t even that good for its class and its DPM schtick isn’t even special anymore.
  13. I guess the Germans getting a tier 8 premium M48 is appropriate payback for the Americans getting the tier 7 King Tiger.
  14. https://worldoftanks.com/en/news/updates/sandbox-ammo-revision-2/ So Round 2 is up and it seems like they've addressed the problem of alpha damage gains vastly outpacing HP gains at higher tiers, which IMO was the only really serious BROAD drawback of this whole scheme. Now all they have to do is individually re-balance vehicles that have been specifically overbuffed for the spremmo-rich meta right now. Granted, that's easier said than done, but I still think that this is a good change overall.
