Who gets to decide if a tank is balanced or not? You? CW council? Or WG?
Okay, let's say CW council banned M60. What about WG-run tournaments? Who will decide then?
Yes, M60 has 330 HEAT pen. But Obj. 140 has 290 while M48 Patton has 300. Is that fair?
We all have our opinion on whats OP and whats not. JgE100 has 420 mm of HEAT pen, more than any other tanks in the game. How is that fair to other TDs?
Well if it's Wargaming run, anything goes, because they don't seem to regulate anything.
And yes, that's fair, because those tanks do different things. As LoweExpecations pointed out, the STB and M60 fill similar roles, but the M60 renders the STB useless because it's better in almost every way. The Jagdpanzer E100 doesn't have good gun handling, mobility, or a turret, so the penetration is fine. The Grille has great gun handling, mobility, and a turret, so it doesn't need the pen that much. It's balanced. Now, if another paper TD with good gun handling, mobility, and a turret were to be released at tier 10 and it had 420 mm of HEAT pen, that wouldn't be fair, because it'd be better than the Grille. That's basically what's happening here.
