not even sure why, I probably won't equip it past level 1due to parts issues, which means it is useless. :(

Yea, i have lots of unequipped tanks I like to play, have earned, or have bought. No spare parts avail, this spare parts system is dumb as is.

 

Thats the nub. Even though is think spare parts themselves are stupid, with proper implementation it would be ok. It makes no sense at all what WG has done, there is no benefit for them or us.  :amazed:

 

At at this point it must be a pride thing, they can't admit they screwed up.

It was one of the first tanks I put equipment on after 3.8. Then WG nerfed the time between shots from 2.5 to 3.3 seconds. It was like WG wanted to add insult to injury.

This (above) is a great example of what the 3.8 update has done to the game.  Quite frankly, it has taken all of the fun out of grinding tank lines or even purchasing a premium tank.  Well done, WG.  Way to think things through...

Alas even when you get enough sprockets, you will never get to experience playing it as it once was, before those who were humiliated and shamed by it (and lied to themselves about it not being their fault) shrieked and cried from the shadows until it was made into a weakjoke

Well, it was a bit broken on release; 1200 damage before a fully fit T62 can reload with 340 pen is too much.

Exactly...  why should it take over two weeks to get full equipment??  (excluding gold accelerators)

Enjoy the 50B.

Sorry, but this "if my tank isn't maxed out, I can't possibly drive it" winging just bugs me. God forbid you don't have the +3% to this, +4% to that, etc little mods so that the tank is at maximum capacity in order to drive it.  As if your winning is hugely dependent on these buffs.  At some very low, incremental level over a huge number of games...okay, they MAY have an effect.  But if you like the 50B and are good in an autoloader, the vast majority of the outcome is going to come down to whether you drive it properly or not.  Plus, if you play the game for any length of time (most people play for years who are serious), the time waiting to even get all the equipment unlocked is trivial.

So...there. :P


Goal: Suck incrementally less, day by day

the gun needs all the help it can get.  They nerfed the pen which is understandable, but that means you need to make sure you aim is true and brave because missing a shot in a 50 B can be the difference between winning or losing.

 

You see an enemy heavy tank with 1100 health - you can either take him out or not, depending on whether you miss that one shot.  That is a time you need all the parts.

 

Basically if you're playing any Tier X without all of the parts included you really shouldn't.  Any other tier, not as big a deal.
