The website says:

Each battle in World of Tanks Blitz doesn’t just generate a lot of emotions, credits, and experience, but continuous updates to server statistics too. This enormous amount of data is the main tool that developers use when it comes to balancing vehicles.

As you can guess from the header, the time has come to rebalance medium tanks. Rebalancing will start on 4 January as part of the Supertest.

Please note that these new characteristics are not final. They will be introduced for testing purposes, and may be changed in future updates.

Details

Both statistics and the personal experiences of players show that high-tier medium tanks become a more powerful and dominant force on the battlefield the higher you go. The role of medium tanks have exceeded the expectations of their class because quick manoeuvres across the map are not their only advantage. Medium tanks can boast very high penetration and accuracy. And in the case of Soviet tanks, excellent armour that makes even heavy tanks envious.

Therefore, during the Supertest, the following changes will be tested:

  • Decreased shell penetration of the following tanks:
    - Premium shells only: the Т-54.
    - Standard and Premium shells: the Leopard PT A, Type 61, Т-62А, Object 140, Е 50М, М48А1, Leopard 1, STB-1.
    - Standard shells only: the Centurion 7/1 and FV4202.
  • Turret armour was redistributed and weakened for the Т-54, Т-62А, and Object 140.

Please remember that all changes introduced during the Supertest are not final. After preliminary tests, new data will be analysed and used to further rebalance medium tanks. Stay tuned to the news for the latest updates!

IMO they shouldn't be nerfing the tanks that are overperforming, rather buffing the ones that are underperforming.

Sad thing is that med tanks are the backbone of all countries and the most produced. With only 7 players per battle meds have to be somewhat OP.everyone usually uses heavies in game .

Jim Caldwell, the master of going unnoticed if you'd put a lampshade over his head, would scream in anger when finding out that the L7's basic penetration has been nerfed. AND IT DOESN'T HAVE PREMIUM AMMUNITION. 

More big middle fingers from Wargaming...:(

Only good thing is the nerf of Russian medium armor.

Also, I love the fact that people can't read.

The nerf that might happen kind of makes sense, like how does a 15cm gun (e100) have less pen than a 105mm reound? It has higher caliber, so more force being applied. Please a physics genius explain this to me

Maybe the 105 uses lube? 

 

Its not just how big it is, it's how much power is behind it.

Lower muzzle velocity, plus the barrel is short relative to the caliber. Game balance (obviously) has a hand as well. 

 

Which is why I'm having a hard time believing that these changes are necessary. What with TD spam and everything, meds already have a hard time. A couple meds could use a few nerfs here and there, but an across the board nerf is not necessary, especially to penetration.

 

The only way a pen nerf would balance things is if armor is nerfed along with it.

Physics,velocity usually = pen
