I don't get why the Rhino's nerfed so hard. Never mind the cynical overtuning of new lines to drive people to grind them, this seems like it's going to make the line irrelevant. 

 

Well, I suppose WG did release the UK light tanks as is. Maybe they like to test and see how bad of a line they can make and still have people who research "EVERYTHING!" grind it out.

Standing by it, but it was looking like a chieftain competitor early on. Can't be indirectly nerfing the chief! That would be like balance.

I think they are having trouble balancing the Rhino in particular to account for Equipment 2.0 possible choices.

 

Notice they drop engine power but compensate somewhat on resistances because the addition of a turbo for example has no effect on resistances. They are trying to account for if a Turbo is added that it just doesn't give it broken levels of mobility for its armour and gun.

 

Then similar situation for gun handling, knowing people may use IRM + V-stabs given it can't use rammer.

 

I have a feeling that this is one of those tanks that is on a knife edge between broken OP vs irrelevant UP or just broken.

Well,

The italian line sure got bashed. If it turns out to actually be good i'll go for the new heavies. If not i'll just yeet my way down the pantera line.

Nerf isn't the right word. They just used a elephant rifle on a baby rhino.

 

Or that not even on the CT rhino has been hesh'd by the balance (cue door falling to reveal a massive belt sander with the words balance dept written on it) dept.

 

Sad to see a baby rhino get absolutely destroyed

Well, the Rhino keeps getting hit, but I haven't been hearing much about the other tanks in the line. Maybe the 9 will be good?

It just copped a nerf too. To be fair this is probably what the prog and std b deserved from the get go, but it's not making the line look very appealing.
