That’s a beefy deathstar.

Thanks for posting…still not enough to make the Deathstar what it should be. It needs the gun depression of most British tanks and better frontal armor. It gets wiped off the map way too easily. It’s only attribute is the gun.

183 was nerfed for a reason... singlehandedly responsible for basically making tier X a camp-fest... did we forget that?

It will reward aggressive 183 drivers, and really do nothing for the red line spawn dwellers.  
    But it does scream for a Grille camo buff.

The death star needs worse gun handling, make it more similar to a kv 2 derp gun. Any role the death star fills can be filled by another tank, and done better too. The 183 contributes nothing to gameplay, besides making tier X more toxic. I understand it's role as a fun tank, but that shouldn't come at the expense of overall gameplay.

This buff will only serve encourage players to stay in the back and snipe since they will now be able to bounce a few shells. I don't think it'll encourage more aggressive 183 plays since it still won't be a good side scraper or hull down at close range. If the armour is going to be buffed, at the very least hopefully WG will nerf the gun handling and dispersion. Oh, and the dpm should get a Nerf as well. It has no business having 3k dpm imo. 


my two cents, change my mind

The Death Star IS a TD and like most TD’s you find a good position and SNIPE, what’s wrong with that? As it is now you can’t do anything and you get wiped off the map with paper armor and no gun depression. So you can’t even hide your weeks spots, side scrape or anything. It’s useless!

when it was better you’d get two per team. people would just camp because you couldn’t ever see them because their camo was so good. one false step and you’d get slapped for 1200 damage or worse. 
 

life is good now that the 183 is bad.

For a tank with that much alpha I don’t think it should have armour.

And for a tank with so much armour I don’t think it should have mobility. (Looking at the new OBJ)

That 183 doesn’t need an armour buff. Im gonna have harder times playing in mediums. But I’m just a nub so who knows.
