Every game.

 

Every damned game it's there.

 

Most of the time it just sits there, menacingly.

But once every half minute or so it peaks out and

BAM!

1400 hp gone, 3 crew dead, and every module damaged or destroyed. One second you are a full health tank and the next you are a one shot for anyone.

 

This is what the FV-215b 183 does best. And thanks to its HESH rounds it strike fear into the hearts of opponents by just sitting at one end of the map. Even if you have armor the HESH rounds will still splash and do several hundred damage and kill a crew member. Now if you only saw these tanks once every few games or so and never more then 1 on any team it wouldn't be too bad. However, it seems like this tank is now the 2nd most popular vehicle at tier X after the IS-7. Something needs to be done! These tanks turn high tier games into campfests and essentially play the role of artillery in blitz. Even the AP does 930 damage on average, far higher then the typical 640 for other tank destroyers. 

So I am making this petition to try and fan the fire of community outrage to get the dev's attention to change something about this tank. Wether it be nerfing the penetration of HESH rounds, nerfing the alpha damage, increasing the already long reload, or just making it so expensive to play many players can't afford to play it ALL THE TIME, it doesn't matter. 

This tank needs to be nerfed!

You know a tank is broken when you can eat and play at the same time and easily average 3k.

 

It's a completely OP tank that should have the accuracy of a KV-2.

I don't have a tier X,  but I agree with what you're saying. I say to replace HESH with HEAT/APCR.

I don't know.  I don't have it but it really doesn't bother me too much when I see them in game. I find the Maus a harder tank to play against tbh but I see ur point

 

 

whats the accuracy on them like?

well I mean...no... hesh is the only thing British tanks were good fun for, so don't take it away. 

 

But this tank DEFINITELY needs a pen nerf across the board, a decrease to profitability so you see fewer, and WAYYY worse accuracy than the already terrible accuracy it has.

Just make that thing as innaccurate as hell and force them up front like the rest of us. 

 

Not good enough? Nerf the HESH damage right down to 1000, you can still knaw off a tank's health, but not instantly erase those reds.

They should bring back the mechanic when if you switch ammo types, you have to reload all the way again. It would benefit tier X from the 183 spam, yes, it would make tier IX and X mediums weaker when it comes to switching ammo, but that would be a reason to buff their penetration back to their original state.

Not every one, but the ones with bad penetration and long reloads like the T69 and T54E1. Just sligtly buff their penetration to a point they don't have to rely on prammo as much. They needed some kind of buff anyways.

Huh. I see. Perhaps increase bloom on 183, increase reload, and lower HP by 50-100 points?

Please no. T49, KV2, and SU 152 will instantly become underpowered.

I see your point, I stand corrected. Then I think either the penetration or the gun handling should be nerfed.

That's a PC thing, we don't have 30min to wait for ammo to switch on Blitz

Right, because tanks that can HE a majority of targets at their battle tier for near full rolls will suddenly become underpowered.

 

KV-2, "underpowered." That's hilarious.
