Your guess is as good as mine.   

 

Survival rate/length of play and the avoidance of rollover battles would be my guess. It's what connects the upcoming buff the best to the increase in all lower tier HP pools back in the 5. updates era. So while heavies may not be performing poorly by winrate, WG may see improving them as a linchpin to stabilizing gameplay.

Hello, welcome to the forums!  It's never gonna happen, and honestly OP premiums isn't our biggest issue right now.  Currently, the most blatantly broken OP tank in the game is the T92E1, with it's ridiculously troll armor, penetration, damage, missiles, speed, and camo.  And it's a tech tree tank.  And WG has always said nerfing premiums is the last thing they want to do.  So instead of that, they are buffing all the heavies, and letting mediums and lights grow weaker by comparison.  IMO, there's not much we can do to help them out of their hole.  They need to dig themselves out, although it looks like they are just going to stay mired in their mudpit for a while.

Well then, see we are being positive here. I personally have not had much trouble dealing with the new ATGM tanks contrary to popular complaint. I think more than anything that we as good players need to be more accepting of change and learn to adapt to these tanks and play to your own strengths. I mentioned the get out of jail free card as a answer to everyone's complaints but if it is that stupid, then so be it, it's dumb. Personally I like playing challenging tank anyhow so adding another issue to adapt to and overcome is fun for me. I know my precious win rate may be skewed by playing in challenging circumstances but so be it. I play for fun, and right now I am having the time of my life in blitz. Just for the record, I do not own any of the ATGM tanks and don't intend to. I did play the T92  when it first came out but I have maybe 25 or 30 games in it and it was very strong. In all fairness there are a lot of bad players playing the ATGM tanks right now anyways. So, despite all the understandable negativity, I am excited for the 6.9 update.

 That is a very good theory and I agree that this buff may very well make "rollover battles" less prevalent.

Those tanks are way overcooked.  Sure we should be adaptable, but that doesn't mean that we should just accept a tank that is head and shoulders above it's peers.  And long time readers know, I generally tend to be a positive cat who dislikes both whining and whiners, but that doesn't mean I'm gonna smile and take it when ridiculousness invades the game I love.

 

Honestly, I'm pretty sure everybody on the forums likes a challenge.  This isn't an easy game, and anybody who comes to the forums to learn more about the game certainly isn't trying to shy away from the difficulty.

Now all they need to do is to add missiles as option to every tier X so they can payback these stupid T92 and Sheridans that breaking the game.

Repeat of tier 7 heavy buffs because of smasher 

 

Tiger 1 is basically a tier 8 medium now....

That's funny, and true. My tiger 1 stats are where my tier 8 mediums are damage wise, in some cases better...

Makes tons of sense to me.

I'm actually doing better in tiger 1 than in virtually any other tier 8 tank.

Don't play the game anymore. If you see me online, it is most likely someone else playing. I'm back
