If you don't know, the T29 is being nerfed in the next update. Here is the news thread. What do you think about this and was it a good change. I personally think it needed a nerf, but this was harsh.

I didn't love it, and I'm past it so, all the better for me, even easier to wreak

Honestly, the T-29, IS and KV-3 all needed a good hard nerfing, and it's finally going to happen. They tried buffing tier VII meds twice but it wasn't enough. Those tanks are just crazy out of balance. I also don't think this nerf will be as bad as it sounds. You will be circled a bit more easily, and you will have to take time to aim, but they didn't change armor, damage, reload or anything like that.

I'm surprised they waited this long. I love my T29, but it's too easy to win with it.

I'm on the Kv-3 right now, don't have top guns yet. It does well, but I would hardly call it op, at least at this point. I played T29 early and boy did I suck. I've been meaning to buy it back to get the WR up, guess this just means I'll have to work extra hard. Also, I love how they keep adding HP to the TDs that I have already worked through. At least the jpanther gets a buff, I've been holding off on that one.

They did increase the reload of the 105mm by like 1 sec if I'm not mistaken. I was ticked at first when I heard about it but it did need a bit of a nerf when you think about it. All the tier 7 heavies did.

T29 is one of my favs by far. Nerfing it sucks, but i play it very seldom nowadays. Was it op? For all the noobs facing an elite t29 driver, yes! Elite driver facing tier 9, no but its gun could do something with apcr. Nerfing any tank you favor sucks but a buff is always great.

 

Wg has said more than once that the balances come due to statistics. Do i think the is3 was soooo op it needed a balance. No it was just a good tier 8. Did the ltp need one? Did the t95 need one? Does the t29 really need one? Basically any fan favorite tank is gonna get a nerf. We play a good tank and master it. Wreck any red that comes our way and we get a fat nerf!

Well just like anything we have to adjust I have a 70% win rate in my 29. And I'm gonna miss it being op, but we just have to play smarter and hull down. One plus is there nerfing the soviet heavies to. The biggest threat now is mediums. And now tier 9 games are going to be AWFUL. T54's are so %^*+ annoying as it is now they'll be able to circle us worse than before.

I don't know if I'm going to be playing American heavies anymore. The M6 has been a struggle and even though I love playing heaviums with these nerfs to the T29 I feel like maybe the grind to the M103 and E5 just isn't worth the effort.

E5 is worth every rage every hard loss and every mastery made on the way there!

Ouch, didn't notice that. The 90mm is becoming a more legitimate option. The DPM difference between the guns will be over 350 after the nerf. I think I'd probably still stick with the 105 for the pen and alpha, but that DPM will be terrible. It was already the lowest for any top gun on any tier VII.

I'm upset about it. It has been my go to tank here and on Xbox. Funny the Xbox version isn't getting a nerf.

Jpanther had the same thing. The 105 was the best choice, but then they BUFFED the 90mm. The 105 alpha helps a lot, especially in T9, but every time I play the 105 I am thinking about the potential DPM I am missing out on...

Just finished a game in my KV-3 with a 3500 dmg win. Next guy on my team had 1000. I donked a few easy shots too. This kind of game happens pretty regularly and did as well in my T29. After a game like that, and with that kind of regularity ( look at what it takes to get top 100 in the tank!) I can see why they are nerfing them.

The nerfs don't look too terrible on paper. It'll be interesting to experience the changes when they come. Besides. It'll make it that much easier to wreak havoc in tier VII when the E25 shows up :P
