I don't recall 1AR losing to a 5 man arty party ft. 183 then taking to the forums later to post their victory and show how much our giggle strat tilted them. Looks like it's just you so far Snake.

@Jumphonner You didnt happen to save that replay with the 6 deathstars, 2 Strvs and 2 EBRs on prok that we won? That was a solid meme. Feels bad for that first chieftain that poked the ridge hulldown, Still searching for his hitpoints

I have that replay, ill get some pics.

 

That ebr poking along in the bushes trying to spot us must have been nervous. But probably not as nervous as the STRV who saw what happened and tried the same thing. I was a little peeved I left him on a handful of hp.

 

Deathstar. Best snipar.

It's CW, personal scores are meaningless.

I'm confused

279s are just as common as chieftains in mid-high end clans. ATLUS has at least 40 of them...

And saying that people grinded the tank themselves is a pretty good joke. Half the people who I know have them from acquiring accounts or getting others to do missions. The only reason they do this is to get the most obviously broken OP meta tank for CW so they can get guaranteed games for themselves in the clan. 

Comparing the 279e to the 260 is also quite funny, because the 260 when it came out was alright, it had the turret overmatch weakness and other armour flaws It was later buffed with the 55A to make it competitive to the 277. With the 279, there is almost no armour flaws frontally and when you angle the armour upwards, its nigh impossible to pen unless you get an RNG pen% on the underbelly of the tank (which WG buffed).

 

Saying people should accept this CW meta is dumb. CW is so boring now and it has become less accessible for newer players. Personally I want tech tree only CW, the tanks there aren't brought off the deep end by WG's balancing department...

If you're confused then by all means, allow me to clarify.

 

Firstly:

I don't actually say the tanks are the same or have the same characteristics, I say that the player reaction was similar (Similar comments were abound when the 260 came out. ). I'm well aware of how the 279e performs vs the 260.

 

Secondly:

I do actually say there's a clever utilisation of resources (or some very clever utilisation of resources (read into that what you will). I wonder if that means all resources available to a person, including (but not limited to) paying someone to run their account? 

 

Third:

There are some players that have genuinely done the grind to get the 279e. That does require skill.

 

Fourth:

If you're playing in a good clan then yes, you'll see more of them (279e's) in a CW environment. You tend to see less in landing tourneys, which is pretty much where most other clans live. I wouldn't know the exact numbers of 279e's on our server, but I suspect it'd still be less than the T95 number of reward tanks for example. Could be wrong tho.

 

The CW meta is what it is. Good players and clans need to adapt, you'd be aware of this. If you don't you'll get left behind. Reward tanks and the associated meta have always been thus.

 

As for accessibility to new players - the type and makeup of tanks available is less an issue than what the actual skill of the clan is - and I don't mean player skill: there's callers, clan management etc. Most clans/clan managers don't know how to run a clan properly, which is part of why they struggle to get on map.

 

I guess most people are more on the 279e with their issues than any other reward tank. That being the case, then perhaps it is worth identifying that there's a broken tank there that needs a nerf (similar to the T22). The other tanks, in my opinion, are not what I'd call over the top.

I love that you used the word "some"

 

Unfortunately, unlike the T22, there are legit 279 owners, so nerfing is hard

Chief is also hardly 'balanced' and the 907 has the advantage of bouncing shots every now and again when you RR to the enemy. It also shoots faster than a 140.

That's exactly my point - it'll likely not get nerfed for some time, so it won't be blocked from CW.

 

I see a post battle screen in another thread where a 907 has beaten a 279e, so they are able to be destroyed.
