Just saw it on their Facebook page. Tier 8 will be the Charioteer and the tier 9 is the FV4004. Thoughts?

Do we need more TDs? No, no we do not. Ugh. Give me another gorgeous light line that scares half the player base away.

 

The ten would be another 183mm gun right? Sigh.

Just what the game needs. More TDs.

 

lol

 

But I guess as long as they're not broken I'm fine with them. Can't really say much else before seeing preliminary WOTB stats for them.

You know that adding TDs to the tech tree does not put more in battle right? The player base in finite, they pick the tanks that suit them. Maybe for a few days, or a week or so when something new shows up you see more as people grind, then it goes back to normal. I don’t mind adding any tanks to the tree. :great:

At least this won't be an objectively terrible addition to the game.

Should be interesting. They almost have to retire the FV183 and replace it with the badger now right? The FV4005 isn’t quite as cancerous at least. But will it get the same nerfed gun handling and concealment of the FV183? I can only hope so...

The Charioteer is basically a Comet that got a much larger turret that has access to the Tortoise's 32pdr gun. It's not fantastic, however it does have a very troll portion of rear turret armor that's 200mm thick that acted as a counterbalance historically.

 

The FV4004, better known as the Conway, is an upgrade to the Charioteer, in many ways. It gets better armor, but slightly less mobility, and 2 extremely powerful gun options. The first gun is an extremely rapid firing 120mm gun (think the ROF of the ISU-152's Tier 7 122mm. Now make it even faster.) It's very accurate, has very high penetration, and very good shell velocity. Basically a TD's wet dream. But that's the stock gun. The second gun is a 5.5in (139.7mm) gun that (in PC) deals 560 damage per shot and has a 10 second reload. It offers 2mm more penetration but worse accuracy, aimtime, and handling. It's also heavier, and has terrible shell velocity.

 

The Tier 10 (should WG add it) is the FV4005, better known as the Sh!tbarn. It has the same 183mm gun as the Deathstar, but trades away armor (and a lot of it) for better mobility, gun depression, and turret arc (90/90 vs. 35/35). When I say the 4005 trades away a lot of armor, it trades away so much armor that Tier 4 AP shells will overmatch its turret sides with their flimsy 14mm thickness. Yes that's right, the turret is so weak that every HE shell in the game (even the weak 3cm HE on the Leopard) will pen it.

I hadn’t looked at their fb page in a while, and scrolling down a bit I see the new premiums they’re working on. Mauerbrecher: cool cool, and.....,wait lol. Is that what I think it is? Yep. The Obj 252U Defender. The embodiment of Russian bias in tier 8 premiums is coming soon. Oh boy. I just hope the IS-3A isn’t too close behind.

Do you see more WZ-120-1 FT TDs now that they have been added or before they were added? :facepalm: Case made, I think, no?

Okay: more or fewer Skorpions?

We don't need anymore 183 guns at tier 10

So in that case I’m thinking, Put the current 183 at the head of the new line and insert the Badger at the top of the old line?
