Sorry guys but when the 168 came out, the 100P weighed more, I'm sure of it. Maybe they 

had an error and switched them. In past Gravity battles I knocked them (168.P) around easily.

It might not be an increase in weight. A change in your speed, angle, or whatever mimics gravity might do the same thing. Since Uprising was held back for changes I’m not going to assume that smaller changes haven’t been made to other modes.

Isn’t it kind of in the name?

100P - 100 tons

168P - 168 tons

Was here to echo this sentiment. The first number is the target weight. 
 

Doesn’t mean it always got close to it but yeah. Hence how the VK 45.03 was the prototype Tiger II, though the Tiger II was not 45 tons. 
 

Same thing with the VK 30.02 and Panther. Almost a 15 ton difference.

Did you verify his work? He’s been making a lot of wag’s (wild a$$ guesses) that he has had to walk back or correct himself on in the proceeding video.

“And yet when you hear people say ‘conspiracy theory’ that’s designed to pluck this little part of your brain that says, well, that thing’s not true,” said Attkisson. “And I always keep an open mind and say, that crazy thing that they say is a conspiracy theory may well have some truth in it.”

No, I did not verify his work, but if enough people say the capital of Norway is Oslo, then it’s not f ucking Copenhagen.

I did.

 

In a video when the VK 100.01 was first introduced Martin Dogger showed a  BlitzStars page with a 120 ton weight listed.

 

 

The original announcement of the VK 168 by WG showed a 168 ton weight. https://na.wotblitz.com/en/news/event/vk-168-01-p/

Looks like I was wrong

In regular battles i do think the 100 is better.

The 168 is usually regarded as bad. Even in PC we considered it bad.

To be fair, he did refer to we in the past tense. So story is still consistent; it checks out.

I've taken on that role recently with gravity mode. Prog 3 shots while floating in air is Op. Btw, I got bored and bought a mystery crate and snagged the Dicker Max. Fun ride with that added mobility in gravity mode.

One of the reasons I left PC. I was very tired of the “fun” and “engaging” play style and it’s effects on other tanks.

 

But yes. PC is “them” in present term.
