Not sure how well those pmm tanks will do vs defenders even after the tweaks... Wait a minute, maybe the issue wasn't the pmm tanks to begin with?!?

That is why the article says that we are going to test initially the following improvements:

• Increase the penetration value of the standard shell from 203 to 212 mm.

• Increase vehicle’s durability from 1,300 to 1,400 НР.

• Increase rear speed from 12 to 14 km/h.

• Improve aiming time from 2 to 1.8 s

 

Should they prove not enough then we will strive to keep improving it to make it relevant to the game. Just like when it first came out. Good times, good times.

Good luck penning E-75's with 185 pen, all you idiots who complained are gonna get the short end of the stick now.

I would have rathered the option where they take away the pref MM and make them normal prems.

People seem to forget that the great thing about the pref MM tanks was that they used to always come up against tier 6/7, these new changes are not going to chnage the fact that the only tanks you will see are tier 8 and 9's.
And there proposed changes to the MM will hardly effect the ANZ server because we dont have enough low tier players.

quite nice at least but i'd say jg88 need like 220 pen, the armor is shit after the skorpion release i accept that but the real problem is you can't pen anything while you hulldown or trading shot also buff the APCR like 246 and everything wil be fine

For the M6A2E1 please buff the accuracy for T32 as well make it like .40 or .39

 Problem: Tanks with preferential status are likely to get matched into two- or one-tier battles

If pref-MM tanks are damaging the MM template so badly, just put all the pref-MM tanks in their own MM separate from the normal-MM tanks. Temporarily. Let them pref-MM's fight each other in the little pref-MM pond while WG records feedback from purely normal-MM tanks to perfect their MM algorithm (or something).

 

Then we can test if 3/5/7 is really the best template, or not.

In general, and here is a suggestion - All the tanks are just grossly underpowered if you want to give them tier X MM. Look at your current prem for what *you* think is tier X worthy. And the resulting power creep not only fixes the overpowered paywall premiums problem, it also provides incentives for people to buy all the other tanks that your staff have spent hours making.

 

And the suggestion - If you really can't balance the tanks, allow them to switch to another tank of the same class for free. Kinda like the buyback/exchange/whatever program but free but limited in terms of tank class.

Is it? Sorry I was laughing too hard to comprehend properly.

 

If they do keep the pref MM, I sincerely apologize to WG staff and mod please delete the posts related to this side discussion.
