I'm very disappointed in your adjustments to light tanks.

When can we expect to see the Fury model corrected to better reflect what the tank actually looked like in the movie?

 

​If you are always on the losing team it may be time to admit that "the team" isn't the problem...

The t71 not liking the pen nerf. But welcoming the rof buff. Reload was way too long for me.

I'm sorry, but any nerf to the t71 is a joke. A sad joke. :(

Most likely when (or if) they rework it to HD. You'll have to wait a long time.

WG never fails to disappoint. T71 needed a buff not a nurf... where is that one WG cartoon when you need it ?

I had previously suggested the Hunter badge be fixed, and they're... Partially doing it. VK30.01(P) should also count. It was codenamed Leopard during development. Incidentally the Maus was also called Tiger II(P) during early development.

Only 3 new things - A map rework, made a good map [edited], boosters which will surely encourage paying to win, and an interface change. Then light tank nerfs. Disgraceful

Glad we got our team registered for the tournament tonight.  The downtime for this patch cut out the last 4 hours of registration.  Servers went down at 3:00 PM Eastern and when they come back up at 7:00, registration will be closed.  That could disappoint a few folks who were still trying to get teams registered.  Our team was not impacted by this, luckily, but it was kind of close...

I have to say this patch is impressive on paper. I havent "field tested" the numbers but id have to say they look good.

Trolling light tank gameplay got a much needed nerf. Theyre pen and mobility were stronger than some heavy/TDs in battle, so a pen nerf is justified by a reload speed buff.

No more guaranteed pens while trolling also sounds great bc 1v1 tank slugging wont get immediately, trolled.   :)

 

Great work and thanks for the update
