Perhaps I am simply uneducated. But I have been operating under the assumption that the grey areas of the characteristics bar are there to indicate that upgrades,  equipment, modules and consumables in some cases can improve the listed values.  If I am incorrect please let me know what the grey areas are there to indicate.

 

The tier II T18 was my favorite tank before the great purge of 5.5, and is now a shadow of its former self. A fact that has bothered me to no end is the firepower bar has a shaded area suggesting that I can improve the gun by 1/3.

Blitzstars even has an option for APCR as an option (alas they have the incorrect gun listed)

Is it possible WG forgot to include APCR with the update? Will the T18 ever be competitive again? Is there something else I am completely overlooking?

The grey area is there to indicate that's all you get :)

 

In other words - ignore the grey -- heck, ignore those bars completely and you'll be no worse for the wear.

I’ve noticed a strong lack of Spare Parts. Is that intended?

No, it is not. This problem will solve itself with time. Many players have several dozens of vehicles in their Garages, so they don’t have enough Spare Parts for the entire vehicle fleet. But you will gradually collect enough Spare Parts to unlock new slots for purchased tanks in time.

Sold my t18. Was once outrageously good and fav low low tier besides the tetrarch. Then the 5.5 thanos snap happened and it was nerfed into oblivion. I couldn’t pen anything with HE and heat didn’t have the same oof considering the reload. So I sold it for gold.

If there’s nothing faster than light, how’d the dark get there first?—Me

The bars are absolutely useless on every single tank and should be outright removed.

The T18 is now a "collectors" tank isn't it? That means.. its not even in the tech tree for the new players anymore. Keep it for nostalgia... if you have a soft spot in your heart for it..but chances are high that the T18 will eventually, disappear completely as folks like you and I move on to other games. Enjoy it while you have it. But it will never again be what it once was.

 

Accept it.. or sell it. Those are our options. 


I try to follow the wise teachings of Mr Miyagi.  "Best defense, no be there."

...don't get hit... don't get hit... don't get hit... OWWW you %$#$!... don't get hit... don't get hit... don't get hit...
