Hey, maybe the kpzf70 will get an atgm eventually. I never understood why the German varient of the tank got the American missile launcher without missiles over the 120 mm it was intended to have, but mechanic might open the door for it to rise a little in the meta.

Unless you’re very far back from the cover it can’t do that, as it would have to sharply corner over the roof to do that. As for not seeing that I can only say free cam a bit more, or just be wary of nearby missile tanks

 

In the video the missile goes over a rock and down on the tank.  The victim was fully behind cover.  This is my problem with it.  It doesn't matter, it's all conjecture until we try it out, but I'm afraid the result will be great destructive power in the hands of a few.

I think with the addition of this mechanic, the T49 and KpfPz70 should receive alternate guns that can use missiles as their premium ammunition.

I really like the idea of being able to switch between ATGM and normal shells while in battle.

Yea the T49 is getting completely shafted. The pairing of the big gun and mobility that made it unique just got trumped big time.

I mean, I'm sure the P43 ter feels the same way about the Panterra as the T49 feels about the T92 (Tier IX American light). Higher tiers sometimes get access to more toys. Just how it is. 

 

Now that I know that ATGM will just be a premium ammo, it would make sense to buff the Kpf 70's alpha to 640 and 960 for its standard and HE ammo, and make its premium shell a 560 alpha ATGM shell. Nerf the gun handling or mobility to balance out its new firepower. Since it's been introduced, the Kpf 70 has always had underwhelming firepower. It's time to balance it.

This. Will ATGM have the properties of AP or HE? Or perhaps completely new properties?

Make a tank with bad gun handling and poor mobility even slower or more inaccurate. Oof, just kick it while it's down y'know.

This has bad idea written all over it. I hated the missile event. Can I sell back my tier 8 and 9 premiums for gold?

My previous post was probably a little rash. My back was killing me (which always puts me in such a positive state of mind). I am still extremely wary of the permanent introduction of missile tanks. Let’s hope they get the mechanics right.

Looking at the sheridans stats on blitzhanger and I gotta say, those are some juicy pen values on the apcr and atgm.

240 mm on apcr for a derp light with 340 mm pen on the atgm that only has 15 less damage.

Is it possible to shoot a missile down?

And will the velocity of a missile increase with distance or remain constant?

I doubt you will be able to shoot them down. You will probably just have to out maneuver them or hide from them.

Pretty sure the velocity also stays constant at 30 meters per second.

I'm just preparing to park my level eight and nine tanks,any non premium eights and nines are getting sold off,all this is going to do is up the game's frustration levels at eight which is bad and nine and ten which is worst.

 

Bravo WG you just want to make the game intolerable with every new idea :sceptic: why don't you try and fix the damn RNG first before you throw in another monster??? :sceptic:

Honest question. Why do you still play this game? It’s very apparent that you dislike everything about it. You have complained about every change that has ever happened. You’ve even asked WG to nerf the mobility to all fast tanks because it’s harder to play heavies when you can’t keep up with them. If you hate it so much, why continue to torture yourself?
