Okay so I think most of us agree that the VK 28.01 deserved a nerf because of how powerful it is, but I think we agree too on the fact that WG nerfed this tank too much, so this is my opinion of how the tank should have been nerfed:

 

Instead of nerfing the speed, nerf the armor. The tank has way too much armor for a light tank, and if you angle the front properly it can bounce a lot of stuff. Nerf the hull and the gun mantlet, and leave the top speed untouched.

 

Don't nerf the gun depression completely. If you want to change it, make it have -7 degrees from the front but -9 on the sides, just like other german tanks, so when you have the Ru 251 you have previous knowledge of having to aim at the sides to have maximum depression.

 

Don't nerf the accuracy. It's a german tank after all, the gun should be above it's peers. You can nerf the aiming time if you want, however, I don't think it's going to ruin the tank.

 

Keep the DPM nerf. The gun handling is the best among it's peers, after all, so nerf the DPM a bit to compensate it.

 

What do you think?

They're just making every tank generic.

 

They should've nerfed the depression, so it's slightly worse than the Cromwel, and not butcher it to hell - isn't that the point of British tanks? Good gun depression and versatility?

They should've left the gun handling as is. German vehicles usually have high accuracy and I don't see a reason to change that.

 

Maybe nerf the HP instead of the armor?

 
The DPM deserved a slight nerf, but that's about it.

Or slightly more, for gameplay variety. 880 would've been a good amount.

the speed nerf wont really do much, from the standpoint of your perspective it will make a difference, but trying to fire at one moving at its top speed wont feel any different, as for the gun, with all that armor and speed it should have a bad gun. this is my opinion at least

Not even close to the fastest. There’s the RU, the Bulldog, and the LTTB that I can think of in terms of top speed. There are also numerous tanks that are faster overall due to engine power to weight ratios, like the Leos.

If there's something that lightly armored german tanks have teached us is they they have horrible armor, but good speed and good guns. I think the VK 28.01 should follow that concept, hence why I believe it should keep a good top speed and a good gun, while nerfing the armor.

I think reducing the top speed was something good, but it still should be above 60km/h.

Gun depression nerf is what I don't agree with.


I played TDs before it was cool. It was also never cool to begin with.

The RU is only fast in a straight line. Turn your tank even by a degree and your speed drops. The acceleration and traverse aren't the best either.
