What happened to the armor buff mentioned in the balance adjustments for this up date? The values in the overview for this tank are the same as before.

Perhaps in game values in the UI had not been updated?


Must. Have. 60%. Winrate. Under. 0.5%. Platoon. Rate!!! (30 day)

 

I have 11k WN8 and 2.5k WN7 on my Leichtraktor (Player_81214765456 of the DAMGE clan). Not sure if I should be proud of this...

Blitzhangar says it happened. I'm curious to know if it really did.

I hope so, that poor tank really needs the buff.

It's funny how different players click or don't click with some tanks. I've never had a problem with the 36.01.

I haven't played it since the days of noobishness, but I don't remember it being horrible for me.  However, when I see one on the battlefield lately I know it's easy meat no matter what tank I'm driving.  Hopefully the buff helps with that.

I'm looking forward to rolling it out tonight if I get a chance. Also looking forward to rolling out my new tiger II that I finished grinding for.

Ronnie talked me into starting the chinese TD line, otherwise I'd be repurchasing the Tiger II just to see how it is now.

They might not have changed it just because of the funky German armor layout. Different strips have different armor values and only a couple of them got changes. Actually didn't think it needed the buff, had already started using it in tier VI tourney as a town fighter as its stats were virtually identical to the Kuro and the 131 and you have the option of running the 75mm which has a little more dpm and better penetration.

I always liked the vk.   I guess I’ll dust it off and see how it does.

Took it out today for 24 battles in encounter mode.  No tooning.  66% wr, 4,125 wn8, avg dmg 1,306, survival 62%, and shot effective a little down at 78%.  Fully equipped. Fully researched. Running the 75mm over the 88mm.  Played around with consumables and equipment.  Right now set with double rations, rammer, and will press adrenaline at the first chance I get.  Had the top turret with more armour and hp, but trying the smaller turret now to see if it presents a smaller target.  I run speed boost too.  When low tier I can effectively run withs meds.  When top tier, just angle and press the fire button.  Have gone up against other vk36.01 and see red.  APCR solves that.  I am having fun with it and making some credits.

I like the VK 36.01 H

With speed boost it's as fast (or faster!) as most mediums in the tier once it gets going, yet it's a heavy. I just bought it a few days ago as i researched right through it rushing to get up the tiers way back when i was a newb.(first tank line i played) I don't know what it was like back then but it seems pretty dang good now!

First battle in it. I think it's pretty okay! Bounced 5 of 10 shots that hit me. Won a 1v2 brawl with the Hellcat and Strv; they couldn't deal with the enhanced armor.

Nice! I skipped this tank on both of my accounts by researching the Tiger I through the Tiger P. Maybe I'll take it for a test drive.
