Hey people, 

From the recent update that nerfed the penetration as well as the armor (Russians) for mediums i was wondering if there was any drastic changes in play styles for the tanks as well as if they become any worse or better? From some recent videos I've watched it seems like the E50M would gain an upper hand against other mediums due to more armor with less enemy penetration, while the obj 140 and the t62 still have relatively strong turret armor but if you aim you will penetrate. 

 

I also don't know which tank i should get now after the medium nerf, the object 140 or the T62A

 

Any thoughts? Thanks.

I think the change was very necessary. Many of the high tier mediums would easily dominate most high tier heavies due to better maneuverability, better DPM, higher pen, and somewhat bouncy armor on some, most particularly the Russian mediums. Luckily Wargaming nerfed those the most so now heavies shouldn't have too much trouble penetrating thier armor. Heavies are what most people consider the "classic" tank, able to take plenty of abuse and cause lots of damage before they go down. I was actually quite happy to notice a lot more heavy tanks becoming popular for once, even the lower tiers doubled in thier numbers. This isn't to put mediums to shame however. They are still more maneuverable and carry better DPM which is what Wargaming intended originally, but giving them more pen added with some bouncy armor just wasn't balanced before. Enough with the Russian spam and onwards with many different vehicles all round!

The E50M is now nerfed to the grounds along with its cousin, the Leopard 1. But for now let's just ponder the former.

The DPM on the E50M was already horrible. Its armor can sort-of justify this, but penetration was one of the three (2 on the Leopard) redeeming factors.

They were decent counters for heavies and TDs - speedy and boasting good pen, they can flank around and kick some balls.

But now with their penetration nerfed to the grounds, we can only see a decline in balance, which will lead to WG nerfing heavies and TDs, until all tier 10s have 1mm of armor, travel at 1km/h and shoot peas.

Until then, Mobilize, for it is working as intended, comradeTM.

 

Don't get me wrong, I think the nerfs to the Obj. was necessary, but they overkilled the operation. The Leopard, STB and the E50M were perfectly balanced. Not even 1mm of penetration should be ripped away.

I say go for M48 Patton, it's among the top tier X meds post-nerf (personally it's my favorite -- and best performing tank)

I say go for Maus, post Med Nerf it's been like a fortress to me with the HEAT and standard APCR shells coming from Meds.

 

It's not easy to drive though but now this risk is worth the reward.
