Bahaha. In this age of Skorp Gs and Skorp Rs they are going to nerf this thing?  No turret, slower, 10% less hit points. Tbf the pen on the standard rounds is stupid but it's RNGed to death.

Odd, no premium tanks listed there. Please tell me they can't be that [edited] in the head. 

 

List is mostly T9s/TXs with only a few T8s. So if we want to be generous (ahahahahaha), we could chalk it up to that.

Note: Type 4/5 heavy is losing its "Special HE" round and having it replaced by a HESH round with 193mm pen

In practical terms this will effectively be a buff since the penetration increase will make full pen hits much more common or lower armour mitigation if it doesn't fully pen.

To be fair they do say this is a representative list to assess the viability of the concept rather than this is the list of vehicles that will go to live server with nerfed damage values first.

 

They may well drop the whole idea or substantially change how it is done and the list of vehicles included before going to live server. Frankly the only sane way they could go to live with this concept is if it was all vehicles, all tiers at once; otherwise the imbalance would be ridiculous.

 

Of course sanity and WG don't always share the same postcode...

for the special players who use special ammo only, they dont have to "learn to play properly now". Even if wg takes away the power of "special ammo", the special players will still dominate you normal ammo users because these special players know the game better than you do. So stop being ignorant and giving excuses like the good players are only good because they spam gold. Without gold ammo we'll still [edited] your assholes raw. Good players are only good because they know what to do in pretty much every situation if not all. And that includes when our gold gets nerfed.

Last time I addressed an issue on the forum was in 2015 and I'm only back because of the very poor MM. I play about ten battles per day in my Matilda medium tank and I'm lucky if in one or two of those battles I'm in the upper tier, the same seems to be true in the Cromwell in which I play around 12 battles and was on top in only two of these. Now I have to ask how can this possibly be a fair system? I know that you can't expect completely 50/50 but in a tier 4/5 battle why am I in the bottom over 90% of the time? Are certain tanks almost always going to be on the bottom in the new system?
 

I've addressed the issue to WoTs and of course they say "we'll look into that" but I'm pretty sure nothing will ever happen.

First, Matilda will never see "top tier" in a 3 tier layout - tier 2 tanks simply do not have +2 MM.

 

Second, the reason why you don't meet many tier 3s is simple - how many players do you know play tier 3 tanks? Tiers 1-3 take fewer than 10-odd battles to grind through so players don't stay at tier 3 for long.

Will T-34-2 be on the list of rebalance? In case you wondering what's T-34-2, it's the Chinese Tier 8 med.

And finally, gold shell rebalance. Can't ask for better news. I saw someone asking for nerfing super heavies' armor... and that's easily return the issue the people suffering before the rebalance as well as nerfing HP (in case you're thinking about this). Maybe adding weakspots would be more appreciated or you just need to shoot at them if presented. I'll return as soon as this implemented.

BTW, I like the Type 4/5 HESH idea. 193 pen looks OP but it's actually not that much unless you managed to flank in a crippled Godzilla.

Still not guarantee especially when you shooting at Russian Blyatiful meds since HE doesn't have normalization. Beside 750 alpha with 3 rpm (2.4 for Type 4) is nothing special even if you managed to pen every shot.

Saying no normalization is slightly disingenuous when we are talking  about high pen HE that has the ability to splash damage(albeit with relatively small radius but still).

 

Then there is the module damage and crew killing ability..

 

Fact is though when corner fighting versus non HE flinging heavies the Type 4/5 is going to be hard to pen and kill when the reverse is not necessarily true.

750 damage and always doing damage when you hit regardless of how they are angled. :/
