am not the first to say it but the introduction of the Annihilator broke tier 7, no tech tree 7 heavy counters it. 

 

This is unfair on those who couldn't for whatever reason pay to take part in events.

 

I myself come from poverty as a child and as such remember all to well how many are not as fortunate as myself to be able to throw hundreds of notes at a game.

 

So rather than berate wg business practices, I will suggest you consider, in the spirit of fairness and solidarity that tanks like the Annihilator are placed on the tech tree after a 6-12 month delay period so that all may access them.

You don’t have to pay to participate in the events.  Game is free to play. WG needs to make money somehow, I’m sure none of the staff are volunteers.

I have no problem with any of the premium tanks, except at the beginning when there is a flood of them (which is okay, I just avoid that tier for a month or so). I have been on this game for a long time and never spent a cent on it, and though the tanks are broken most of the time the people playing them are terrible, and if WG sells them and makes enough money to keep this game on the App Store (and more, considering they are a business trying to make money) then they can do whatever they want. 

 

Though maybe they could offer special tanks like that- they are paid for at the beginning and then later down the road they are in the tech tree

You need to pay to get Annihilator etc

A level playing ground makes it fair, they are notngoing to delete the Annihilator, or buff other t7s to match it, so. my suggestion is to aim for a level playing field.

I see why you might think that is a good idea, but WG wouldn't do that because they can re-sell the Annihilator again in a few months and make a whole bunch of money from it. Same with a lot of other tanks. I would love to be able to grind a tech tree line for the Annihilator, but in the end its a terrible idea in WG's mind.

No [hey now] Sherlock. That’s why it is a PREMIUM tank. Read the Oxford Dictionary’s definition for the word premium.

No offense, but Gravedigger broke it first...

Then Smasher...

Smasher and Annihilator are very similar.

Dracula is also still kind of broken...

Tier 7 is a tough tier for tech tree.

So you’re suggesting WG just refunds everyone who bought it for the event? Did you even think this proposal through? Even if they did consider balancing it, it’d be by a direct nerf, or by buffing the tt tanks in its tier. Besides, it doesn’t fit anywhere in the tech tree smh. It’s extremely broke, but has various weaknesses a half decent player can exploit.


 You can avoid tier seven if you wish.

 

And lastly, the playing field hasn’t been level for ages in blitz. Get used to it.

Actually, that title would go to the Hellsing.

How bout no. It’ll make it worse, ruin tier 7 mm, and the fact that people spent money in this just for it to be free later. It would ruin Blitz’s economy. Nobody would pay $30 just for it to come for free 6 months later.

No I'm not defending German technical superiority, I'm stating the ****ing obvious!

So, you wave the poverty card, say it is not fair, that a certain tank was not obtainable, ... 

 

And yet you have:  

 

1 x  tier X premium

2 x tier IX premiums

24 x tier VIII premiums

12 x tier VII premiums 

etc.

 

The same could be said for many of YOUR premium tanks that are OP ... supporting your WR and fun. 

Oh wait ...

Not to derail this topic too much, but I'm curious, do you guys view another halloween tank, the Lycan, as OP?


It's not the RNG, the MM, the diameter of your shell, the thickness of your armor, or the number of premium rounds you carry that counts ultimately; it's the courage in your heart, the calmness in your mind, the hope and faith you have in your team, and the way you use what's at your disposal that truly determines Victory.

No, it actually is the weakest, and kind of sucks... Good depression and alpha but slow, long aim and terrible dispersion...

It looks pretty good though.

Oh yeah I forgot that one.

Helsing is kind of broke too...

Didn’t they nerf the Helsing a while back?

The thing they did to the Helsing that is kinda unfair they did not do on the Annihilator: No pen after 400m. You can snipe across the map in the Anni. No pen in the Helsing.

The fix for tier seven is pretty easy.

Everybody play the Sherrif.

All the people with the t49, Smashers, Annihilatora, will get tired of their futility in life and stop playing them.

I think the best way they can fix Tier 7 is to limit the amount of Smashers, Annihilators, etc. in a match.

 

Make the matchmaker so only 1 Anni/Smasher/Dracula etc. can be on a team, unless there is a platoon in them. In that case, there can be only 1 platoon of Anni/Smasher/Dracula etc. in a match. 

 

This limits the endless spam. Even in Tier 8 I have to worry about the Annihilator, they are like the mosquitos I get every summer in Minnesota. Easy to deal with, but annoying and seemingly doing better than they should.


"I like trains. Deal with it." I mostly play Tier VII and VIII-and am 80% F2P. (I need garage slots!)

Favorite light tank:LTTB, favorite medium:M26 Pershing, favorite heavy:VK 100.01 (P), favorite tank destroyer:SU-152

     but all tanks are good if you know how to play them!
