New CW campaign teaser is up. Discuss here.

Recommended Posts

Okay, so new campaign teaser is up:

While no official information is posted on the official site(soonTM), I'm willing to guess that WG is lazy and rules will be at least remotely similar to previous campaigns. However, the reward is kinda interesting - 121B. I'm posting this in advance to discuss whether playing this one will be worth it. I also may or may not be available for campaign and in need of a clan if anyone is interested in a legionnaire.

Also tagging @PityFool so he can move it in the appropriate section.

121B has really bad DPM, although I have both the M60 and Obj. 907 so I am not really sure which tank to choose. The camo looks okay I guess for a winter camoflage? Not really sure how that is supposed to fit onto summer maps.

If I had to guess I would say the campaign will start in late november, consistent with previous large campaigns.

Give us the fucking Chieftan

As CW reward?

Kuvahaun tulos haulle how about no

I mean, even WG realizes that would be terrible move. Several pubbies who have waited for it would go on rampage.

What about T95/Chief for CW reward (NOT the tier 8 chief/T95, im meaning the one with Chieftain turret + gun and T95 hull)? Its like Chieftain but its still not Chieftain. Atleast better than yet another RU med clone. Then bring Chief as regular heavy, everyone is happy :doge:

VK is getting a very big buff next patch

The site said the changes are from supertest. That information at best is suspectable to change, nothing official yet.

121b is trash compared to M60/907/VK.

It would need to get 1 more RPM to consider getting if you don't have any of the 3 above.

How to 121B:

-Take a 113

-Take away the frontal hull and turretarmor (the turret is actually relativly cheesy, the zones where you can pen the turretfront with HEAT are about twice as big as the 121 which already has a worse turret than the Russians...)

-Give it the same mobility with a little bit higher traversespeed because lolmedium

-same gundepression

-take the gun, reduce the alpha while somehow also reducing the rate of fire

.also reduce the health by 350 while we are at it

 

It is just a shittier version of a tank that already is a much shittier version of the 113.

 

The order at which I would pick the tanks are:

 

-Object 907 (You can never have enough stronk Russian meds)

-Faillöwe (Atleast it is a unique tank plus it will probably get a pretty big buff in the future, should it get buffed it would definetly be my 1st pick for sure (even if I hadn´t already gotten the 907)

-M60 (Below the Faillöwe because atleast the VK differs significantly from the E100)

-T95E6 (Only slightly ahead of the 121 because atleast it has DPM and gundepression)

-121B (Noone likes you, go away, the only upside to this tank is the upper plate which can produce some nice bounces when using your gundepression, in pretty much every other way it is a shit tank and noone really needs a crewtrainer for Chinese meds anyway)

If the 121B would get decent DPM it would be an interesting choice, you can never have enough socialist wedges, but in its current state I'm looking forward to completing my collection of Pershings/Pattons/Frankensteins (looking at you, 59-Patton).

Think it's more than DPM.

Compare it a Cent AX -

- You get same gun,

- Same dispersion but worse aim time and worse base accuracy, so overall handling is worse. (Cent AX is hardly a Fatton for gun handling) 

- you get more than 1 ROF less (over 400 DPM difference)

- You are slower, with less engine power AND worse ground resistances

- Half the gun depression

- Worse view range.

For all that you are getting a rounded bouncy turret and a 130mm UFP, except that turret is more T-54 turret with an overmatchable roof spot than T-62A turret and that 130mm still comes with a cheese LFP and is only about 230 effective on the flat.

And it's hardly like the Cent AX is world beater of tier 10 mediums.

I have no tier 10 CW reward so I might try to do this campaign, but I'll probably just pick the M60 even though I know it's not great.

CW reward tanks are sorta a no-win scenario for WG.  They are given to such a small % of players that they aren't really going to want to make them extremely unique, so they all end up as a close approximation to something else already in the game, and usually have some sort of deficiency over what it's approximating.

Might as well just embrace that and instead reward tokens that can be redeemed for a reward version of any tech tree tank.  Would still be a good reward since you can use your favourite tanks to get increased crew training, and also frees up that crew (and since it'll likely be on favourite tanks those crews will be high-end)

Plus, since they are just reward versions of tree tanks they can actually receive proper balance updates when the tree version gets changes.
