As someone mentioned on another thread, WG is a data based entity and makes such changes accordingly. Due to the nearly equal possibility of winning and losing a battle in the T28 via good teammates, bad teammates, direction call, the T28 sits at a 48.42% average WR; which is well in the scope of the playerbase average WR. 

 

Having 1,199 average damage, this indicates to WG that the T28 is fully capable of carrying its own weight and fullfilling its intended role (mediocre at best) as a breakthrough tank with a 34.4% survival rate. This puts the T28 out of the scope of possibility of recieving a buff. Indeed this tank could use a buff via lower plate thickness or a remodel; but we may never see that happen.

WG doesn’t care about that nearly as much as the data from 55-65% players. 
  It comes in there with the lowest WR of Tier 8 TD’s: 55.5%, and the lowest Avg DMG at 1625. 
 

However it leads to the T95 and E3, the T95 being a middle of the pack performer and the E3 being top performer again after the Foch 155 rebalance. 
 

T28 definitely deserves some love in the buff department.

Yea WG is primarily concerned with the data from 55-65% players and it’s always bringing up the rear in those stats. And they updated the IS-3 model when it wasn’t even struggling. They should definitely update the model for this tank as well.

Thanks, I stand corrected. Now I will speculate why WG still wants to leave the T28 in the dust.

My guess is not wanting to make a broken tank - and given the T95 and E3 that follow little driving folks to play the T28 past any need. 
   Sure it could get a little more front armor and more mobility - maybe even a tad bit of side armor, but it’s a monster in tier 7/8 games if positioned correctly.

I respectfully disagree with the highlighted text. If WG did not want to make a broken tank, the Obj 252U would have never been added let alone the fantasy disaster of tier 7.

Do you have a 252U?   It’s a great moron farmer - but it’s massive lower plate and other weak spots make it easy for a good player to farm.

Ummm. Are you calling the IS-3 OP? Cuz I’ve never heard anyone do that before.

Balance tanks for 70%’ers? 
  Then everyone else sucks terribly. 
 Balance tanks for poor players and the skill gap gets even bigger.  

 

You may not like it, but tanks are actually well balanced currently (with a few premium outliers)
