As seen on today's WG update stream. Check it out for more details. 

 

 

I expect this to be a flash point on the forums. I'm happy for heavy main drivers, but man, does this ever point to the missile tanks erasing HP pools. Expected HP buffs in the 10 to 25 percent range. Also oddly enough tier 9 is not included, may hurt that tier's long-standing competitiveness when down tiered.

 

Couple other small points- 

  • Japanese TDs will jump from the Chi-To, grind that XP!
  • Devs claim missile use dropped from 25pct of shots to 20pct

Larger HP pools will lead to higher Ace floors.

That’s a nice bump on the hp! Time to park the ATGMs and bring out the Heavies!

What’s next? What gimmick do they need to introduce to fix their missile fiasco? Let’s eliminate he as an ammo and buff maus speed to 50kph.

Because it has the special provisions, and it’s already one of best heavies at tier X. 
 

E5 willl be awesome with this buff

This is absolutely ludicrous. Make the strongest tanks tier for tier even stronger. Why not just delete all tier X mediums at this point. This is a huge jump in hit pool.  Are going to buff all the standard pen for mediums back to pre 3.8 values, hell no. Wargaming has to make sure the easiest class of tanks to play will remain the easiest.

I'm pretty sure it's a response to the missiles.  The missiles are the hardest on heavies, so instead of fixing the problem, they are digging a deeper hole by buffing everything else to make up for it.  I am not a fan of this strategy, and I love heavies.  

 

I mean, wow, I'm flabbergasted right now.  I sure hope there's something I'm missing, because otherwise logic has just gone out the window.

So most of these tanks will survive one more shot than they do now, with the Maus and E100 needing two more hits to take them down?


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

Could have avoided this stupidity by fixing the missiles. The heavies didnt under perform before-like they stated in the video, they couldnt perform as well against the tard missiles.

No you're not missing anything. So when your in IX facing X, it will be just like VI facing VII.

Maybe instead of fixing the missiles mistake they could just let me buy another 2000hp per tank per battle for gold? Maybe we could get some HP certs.

I mean...I don't have anything new to say, it's just that they buffed all the other tanks to balance their uppity missiles!  Let that sink in for a minute.....Are the missiles broken?  The answer to that is a question...Did they buff half of tier 10 to make up for them?

 

Ribble, are you reading this?  I would love to hear your take on this, please.

Will be difficult to be in a tier 9 when you’re low tier
