Remember the days when the E5 got an accidental buff to armour when it got its HD model? We saw a marked increase in E5 players. What about the time WG went a bit overboard on buffing the Maus? A huge increase in Maus players.

 

Ubisoft recently came out and admitted that they release OP operators in Rainbow Six: Siege, collect data and THEN scale them back to where they need to be.

 

I'm not suggesting WG does this for new vehicles, just the ones that are lacking in the 'play-time' department. I mean, when was the last time you saw a Leo 1 in a game? How about a Sturer Emil?

 

Please give the unloved tanks some love. Always coming up against the same tanks is a little bland IMO.

I do not condone overbuffing tanks to ridiculous levels.

 

I do condone well balanced buffs on tanks that need the buff.

I played a Leo 1 over the weekend, as well as tooning with someone who was playing the Sturer Emil.

But yeah, the Leo really needs a buff.

I'll take an STB buff too (maybe improved turret armour and +10m base VR? Higher top speed would be nice too).

 

Took me 10k bonds to make it into a tank competitive with meta tanks, so I wouldn't say no for that investment to make me a little OP.

 

But yeah, Leo 1 is the poster child for TX tanks needing a buff. Just give it the accuracy it's supposed to have on paper, so that it really IS most accurate tank in the game. That's all I ask.

Because clearly number of users does not translate to OP-ness.

 

And WG keeps telling us they are the ones with the data that the public doesn't have so trust them with the data analysis.

 

Up next in news: STG and AMX premium TD will be coming to in-game shop in 1.2

 

Hopefully that will stop the STG from going on sale every 2 months.

I dunno, I see a fair number of them - more than I do Foch B's.

 

Hell, I barely see more Foch B's than I do Foch 155s.

Aye, Badger produced a lot of hype last year, but now I see FV215B 183's more often than the FV217.

 

And I prefer the F155 > FochB. It's the only autoloader derp; what's not to like?

Its slow, low alpha, and having flat armor that are pretty useless. Didnt see any of them in last 100 game or so, while theres tons of FV4002.


1940- In 2018, we will have flying cars.

2018- Tonk=lyfe, proven by scientist

First thing I thought of when I saw the title.

 

I find Badgers a nightmare to face frontally though, nothing pens except for the small bingo plate at the bottom.

Thinking I should get another Tortoise and transfer my Badger crew back to it.

Always wanted to try it with two repair kits to overcome that pesky double tracking. 

 

The Badger didn’t live up to its hype, I think the Tortose is better, especially tier for tier.

It has a recessed gun, no idea why the British (or WG) couldn't put a proper gun mantlet on it.

 

Because of that, when a Badger is trying to angle to strengthen its LFP it will show a bit of weak armor to the sides of its gun as a place to shoot. And if you miss, you broke his gun instead.

Oh yeh, Dad got our first color telly in 75 and I still remember the first show we watched in color.

The Jackson 5 cartoon, me and my brothers were totally gobsmacked by cartoons in color.

Ferk this is getting depressing or melancholic now.
