Blitzhangar now has the changes from 6.2 Open Test: https://blitzhangar....ate/6-2-preview

The ones that stand out to me:

-M5 Stuart loses 3 shot autoloader and is no longer OP beast (replaced with 60 dmg single shot)

-T71 gains another significant buff (interclip and magazine reload, more HP)

-M46 Patton gets power to weight and traverse buff

-Fury gets ROF, speed, dispersion buffs

-T23e3 gets pen buff to AP and APCR

-Kv1 gets ROF, disp nerf

-Kv2 loses 10 HE pen

-Panther M10, Tiger II, Vk 45 A, Vk 45 B, Vk 100 P, E75, JPanther I and II all get pen buffs

-Ferdinand gets HP buff

-Conway slapped with big HP/ROF/dispersion nerf

-Amx 12t gets interclip reload nerf

-Foch 155 gets 2 shell autoloader, 7 sec interclip and 17 mag, 3158 DPM, 640 alpha

-Strv gets interclip reload, magazine reload, dispersion buffs

-STB-1 gets more side armor, 59 Patton and t9 Foch get more copula armor

-Plus a bunch of low tier tweaks that I didn't think anyone will care about since its post-5.5

-Kv1 armor nerf does not appear in open test...

 

Add in the new map (New Bay, pics in Rebel Alliance Discord server), the Royal Hunt event (Fv201 A45 is main prize), and the new British consumables and this seems to be a pretty significant update.

Thoughts?

Big oof for the brits, but the stvr might finally be somewhat competitive if the buffs are big enough.

Also Brits gets dumb consumable/provisions.  

 

Recently sold T6E1 premium gets dumb nerf (shell Damage nerf that hurts DPM) 

   Tanks wasn’t OP and now gets more lame.

I love how the Chinese 59 Patton gets an armor buff pushing its armor values even further beyond that of the same Tier American T95E2.  

 

So the ChiCom tank now has even more sections with better armor over what is supposedly the same turret on the American tank.  Sure, that makes sense. :P


The point of the game is to win.  The purpose of the game is to have fun.  They are not mutually exclusive.

Wuutttttt

PM10 pen is buffed ?

I don’t even think it will make It good again but the mst shocking part is not there.

it had the same gun and Same ammo as half of the German tech tree starting with tier 5 and ending with tier 7.

how hav they changed the specs of that ammo but only for panther M10 ?

 

anyways I don’t think that will make me go all the way to the attic to recover mine from the 2015 memory chest.

 

 

looking forward to getting that mini chieftain if that doesn’t come at the same time I’m in the middle of the woods tending my bonfire.

Valentine II looks like it’ll finally be relevant again -if you’re willing to pay for using 100% APCR. 

 

JagdPanther II gets enough pen to be a viable deterrent to the M6A2E1

Yeah, I'm back. Let's not make a big deal about this.

Ram II and T6E1 nerf's where only to Prammo -- BUT considering their Prammo is generally needed fight higher tier MEDIUM tanks, it's a travesty.

Their Prammo already has a significant Alpha damage penalty - now it's getting worse.

Thanks for the roundup. That's a surprisingly large amount of tweaks. I guess the T71 hasn't shown a single winrate difference despite over a year's worth of buffs. WG, it's hard to fix the harm a smasher or WZfake can do to a struggling driver of that tank. You did it to yourself etcetc.

 

Is the Conway really that OP? I think it slides into 'very good but within range' territory.

I wish it got a turret traverse buff. I took it out a few weeks ago and had some big games in it though.

Yea after the most recent buff (reload i think) I took it for a spin and found it to be very nice. Not capable of beating t8s over the head, but a quick little bugger with a relatively short reload. I didn't expect another buff, but I sure do welcome it.

I think that most of these were well thought. But I don't understand the nerfs to the Ram II and the T1e6.. Looks like the low tier Japanese are getting much needed buffs.

 

But the M5 nerf breaks my heart

Yes, I like most of the significant ones. The old bait and switch does strike again however. Might see the same thing happen with a Vk 100 P nerf. And yes, I like that the Japanese tech tree is finally getting some love.

I hate to admit it but I have an Asia account in which I discovered how OP the little bugger is and it accounts for about 25% of my battles. So sad.
