I've seen Quickybaby's twitch stream on the 9.17.1 test server and for some reason, he was experiencing lag and the game would also crash. He was also so frustrated that he could not find a battle on the test server that he switched to the live server. 

 

 

 Also, i've seen the new [Japanese] heavy derp guns at tier 9 and 10 and i think it is complete BS for one reason. You only have 2 ammo choices, one normal HE and one PREMIUM HE. yup, and do you know whats the advantage of it ? MORE DAMAGE !!. BUT U PAY MORE !!!. Honestly, i think Wargamming needs to fix the guns a bit, buff the accuracy, aim time a bit and hopefully, lower the price of the premum HE. Because paying about x4 more the credits just to do more damage(if the shell even pens with 75mm of pen) is just silly. they should also buff the Pen to around 80 cuz 75mm isn't that great for tiers 9 and 10.

havent had any issues like Quickybaby

 

as for the new 15cm guns. They are the 15cm/50 41st Year Type guns used as the secondary battery on the Kongo-class battlecruiser among others. It was only ever designed to fire two types of rounds: Common Type 0 HE and Common Type 4 HE. Difference was the blursting charge, with the Type 0 having a 2.9kg burst charge and the Type 4 having a 2.7kg. Muzzel velocity was 850m/s.

 

Now, do I agree with how they have set up the gun? No, in this situation they should have just had a single shell type available and that's it. Premium that guarantees more damage is just [edited] and shouldnt eve be considerd if there is no substantial negative like HESH whereyou get less penetration for more damage

The 15 cm 41st Year Type needs more pen. 75 mm is stupid.

People have asked why not put the top gun of the JagdTiger on the MAUS which as you know has the same caliber.

Now they did ... on a Tier X tank albeit not the MAUS and a somewhat nerfed version of it.


When an enemy Arty "one shots" 2 of your teams' heavies and you're in a heavy tank, you know you're screwed.

A heavy tank should have armor and a big gun, if you don't have either then you're not.

1)[Japanese] type 4&5 should have a lil more pen,75 is kinda low.

2)maus have way more DPM+armour buffs.all the super heavies r getting their armour buffed.but they left out E100.ryt now with all the buffs E100 has the most laughable turret armour,all super HTs get ovr 200+side turret armour.i would suggest turret front to b 270mm nd sides&rear to b 200mm.

3)the game mechanics r good.

4)t110e5 is nt a [edited] anymore.

5)girill 15 was unnecessary nerf.

6)lagges a lot,try nd provide more server for players across the world instead of blaming it on cable cut or suever beiong located at an island.

7)tiger 2 needs a turret buff,200mm front turret nd 100mm side turret.its been  a power creep.185mm is nt at all suited for being at the front line being a HT

How 2 angle turret? 750 alpha gun means it doesn't need to expose often.

3)the game mechanics r good.

4)t110e5 is nt a [edited] anymore.

Eh. E5 nerf is mainly the cupola which means that its a slightly bigger area which is pennable. The side nerf just means you can actually pen the drivewheel since it wont be 270mm flat on anymore. You can still miss that bit and hit a strip of 1300mm effective.

5)girill 15 was unnecessary nerf.

High alpha, good dpm, great mobility. What is there not to like about it? Its a deserved nerf, it clearly outclassed the other TDs in its tier with a turret, insane accuracy, alpha and dpm. 

6)lagges a lot,try nd provide more server for players across the world instead of blaming it on cable cut or suever beiong located at an island.

Your net is screwed.

7)tiger 2 needs a turret buff,200mm front turret nd 100mm side turret.its been  a power creep.185mm is nt at all suited for being at the front line being a HT

I think that armour scheme is historical, don't think there will be any changes to it.

​1)im talking abt 230+pen lyk 183,100-115mm pen for firing only HE.

2)750 alpha?so im suppose to play it lyk a TD?poke wen i can fire nd rest of the tym hiding?historically e100 nd mause have same turret,y nt make it little more similar since they both have same play style.if u angle ur front perfectly against 330+pen,they ll simply shoot ur weak side turret armour.15cm gun have worst handling than 128mm gun,meaning u have to show ur face a lot.

3)i meant to say that t110e5 is some what balanced,since now v can shoot its hatch.

4)girill 15 gets accuracy,dpm,alpha.also it gets lowest pen in any t10 TD in the game,has no armour.im nt saying im 100% correct since i have nt played it,but never had a problem facing it unlike t110e5.

5)my net is nt screwd,if u dont knw der is a underwater cable cut that WG tld me abt.my adress goes to hongkong nd den goes to INDO,so its a long trip.

6)trust me is3 turret was never 250mm in real nd tiger 2 turret was nt 185mm.

Grill15 need some nerf, especially top speed and shell velocity, which is insane for 15cm gun. But now they overnerf it without compesate the new drawbacks with better dispersion, or at least give it 180 rotating turret.
E5 probably should just keep the cupola, but nerf lower plate and gun handling.

?????????????????????

Its enough doing 600 with HE, buffing the pen is just wrong. Its premium HESH on the 183, not normal HE.

2)750 alpha?so im suppose to play it lyk a TD?poke wen i can fire nd rest of the tym hiding?historically e100 nd mause have same turret,y nt make it little more similar since they both have same play style.if u angle ur front perfectly against 330+pen,they ll simply shoot ur weak side turret armour.15cm gun have worst handling than 128mm gun,meaning u have to show ur face a lot.

No, you turn your turret to shoot them after they bounce of you. Turret side will bounce everything if you angle it at all. You have no idea what you're on about. 

3)i meant to say that t110e5 is some what balanced,since now v can shoot its hatch.

Yea its a decent nerf. esp after i looked at the model.

4)girill 15 gets accuracy,dpm,alpha.also it gets lowest pen in any t10 TD in the game,has no armour.im nt saying im 100% correct since i have nt played it,but never had a problem facing it unlike t110e5.

Pen doesnt matter, it has bucket loads already and great accuracy. Armour doesnt matter with good mobility. 

5)my net is nt screwd,if u dont knw der is a underwater cable cut that WG tld me abt.my adress goes to hongkong nd den goes to INDO,so its a long trip.

6)trust me is3 turret was never 250mm in real nd tiger 2 turret was nt 185mm.

1 - High pen HE would be no different then firing HESH though. We aren't talking the 230mm of pen like the FV215b 183, just something along the lines of 115mm... in saying that just going to 90mm would be good since Foxh 155, T110E3 and T110E4 all have the same 1,100 dmg on their HE shots with 90mm of pen

2 - E100 turret is effectively 280-290mm of armor at the front, same as what the Type 5 is on test server. Just need to angle it after shots like FlyingFox said

3 - E5 nerf was due to the fact that they unintentionally overbuffed the armor when it got its HD model and only took them till now to fix it... better late then never

4 - agreed, Grille 15 was just out performing everything. Not gonna complain it got nerfed

5 - not going to get into discusion about network connection and what not. This is about the 9.17.1 patch, lets keep it there

6 - Tiger II needs to be at tier 7, sick of WG making historical tanks unhistorical just so they can have it at a higher tier then it should be at

​1)E100 turret is 278mm effective at base,similar to type 5 or mause nd i completely agree.bt side turret armour is 150mm which is way lower than type 4&5 nd maus which have 210mm raw armour making them effective.and all these super heavy tanks have similar playstyle,nt that u cant bounce or side scrape with 150mm.wen ur trying to angle ur front u expose side turret in an e100.but that doesnt happens with mause or type HTs.its nt about E100 is playable or nt,its about being fair towards all super heavies.side turret buff ll make e100 more effective in angling.since der r soo many high pen guns.

It's called effective angling... so what if the turret side is only 150mm? If the enemy is beside you to shoot the side of your turret flat on then either you or your team [edited] up. with this kind of angling while side scraping your turret front is 300mm and the turret side is 490mm... I suggest your learn about effective armor thickness because you can sidescrape and bounce every shot on the side of your turret

​u forgot to show the turret face armour,whi ll b less than 315mm.also im pretty sure u wont shoot gold at e100 lyk that.

did you not read where I said the turret would be 300mm effective? turn the turret 10deg to the left, side armor would still be 330mm effective and the turret front would be 320mm.  I really don't see how it's so hard to understand the simple concept of angling your armor...

 

Well i get nothing out of it so I'm not going to continue this

He was. And this HE isn't intended to pen heavies and most meds. There is enough derp guns in this game, we didn't even need more at tier 9 and 10 to negate any attempts in angling by enemies. Just reducing the need for skill in this game.

2 - E100 turret is effectively 280-290mm of armor at the front, same as what the Type 5 is on test server. Just need to angle it after shots like FlyingFox said

Looks like WG are testing it out, so its possible. However it still isn't necessary, just avoid getting shot for now and wiggle to extract every bit of effective armour you can. Its thickness will not change and karthik seems to have no idea what he is on about re E100 turret and Tiger II turret.

I do believe I said this but I hate when WG make historical tanks unhistorical. Especially wheren theres no need to buff them. Simply, the whole German tech tree is in need of a rework (so is the US line for that matter). 

 

The Tiger II just needs to be at tier 7 as I aldready mentioned and is being tested there as FlyingFox pointed out. 

E100 is already slightly unhistorical as it actually has the Maus II turret mounted on it in-game instead of the E100 turret for the fact that the E100 turret wouldnt have been good enough at tier 10... hell, it would have made a decent tier 8 with the historical turret

 

tldr; if it aint broke, dont fix it
