T28 buff is years overdue at this point. Is there some reason why WG hates that tank?

Rework the Emil 1. It's literally miles ahead of everything on the entire tier 8 balance chart in terms of both damage and winrate.

I lost respect for how WG milks manages this game title about a year ago. When I see charts this stupid, I actually smile now. This is simple mismanagement, laziness, crass marketing, and/or cynicism. WG, you can do better than this; cycle after cycle. 
Perhaps cute once or twice but it’s grown tiresome.

I have been saying this for a while.....probably since I saw those charts for the 1st time.

They simply mean nothing statistically speaking.

For what I heard, it is way more smart the data they use in Wot.

Devs cant give satisfaction they need us to comeback checking in "if this update fixed what was clearly off balance"

 

this video here explains the general trend of games on playstore that "freemium" model.

Im really happy the jp4 wasn't given the 3500k dpm like all the clickbait videos sggested

but i think not buffing the challengers damage anymore missed a huge trick. It's so much weaker than the other tier 7 tds its not even funny.

Waga, bro!! As a fellow Challenger appreciator, I'm so excited because I just found that they did buff the Challenger's alpha strike. :) It's not listed in the in-game changes article, but I'm looking at it my updated Blitz app on the details screen, and it's showing 300 alpha and 2,600 dpm instead of the 250 alpha and 2,200 dpm it had 12 hours ago!

 

YESSSSSS! Thank you Ribble and the balancing team!!! I loved this tank before, with 400 more dpm and bigger alpha it's gonna be magnificent fun!

 

Sorry, y'all, I'm just a bit excited about this :D lol

300 seems a bit overcooked, I think 280 (like in PC) would have been fine. But now all I want to do is take out the Challenger for some games and grind to the top gun! (the stock one with 200 alpha isn't half-bad tho)

WG has always done this. New tank lines are OP, good players get them first anyway, so they end up with insane win rates. That makes the wallet warriors try to get into them, the win rates come down, but the second go round proves the tanks are still OP, then they receive balance adjustments.

 

I just wish that some of the legendary and historical tanks would also recieve buffs from time to time. Also, power creep always trends in the direction of high alpha which either creates campy gameplay or allows a bad player in a good tank to outplay a good player in a mediocre tank more times than not.

 

Annihilator is laughably imbalanced. It would need a frontal armor nerf, enlargement of the turret weakspots on top so that even T6 guns can pen it with no problem, and an increase in the RL by about 4 seconds to be balanced, IMO. It's fast, it can hulldown, and put out ~600 damage in bursts every 13 seconds.

Emil 1 is an insanely tough little nut to crack - great gun and turret.  Play it hull down, play it smart and it's op.  Run vents and then boost your way around the map like a medium!  It's a better tank than the Defender.

Tanks:  _X: T110E5, T110E3, FV215b(183), IS-7, Obj.140  _IX: M103, T-54  _VIII: IS-6, T34, Lowe, T-44, IS-6, IS-3D  _VII: T-43, Comet, E25, AT-15A, SU-122-44
Usually on in the evenings Pacific time.  Intake Contact for Triarii Clan (PM for details)

Removing ATGM's sucks. Even if they're available in other modes. Why not make a compromise of having a limited compacity of 3 or 4?

IMO that would have been the best solution, but either way I'm happy.

 

I also heard that supposedly the Vickers and BatChat will be changed. The Vickers seems to have got some nerfs and the BatChat IDK.

 

Can anyone confirm this?

I also heard a rumor similar to this.

According to open test:

BatChat gets inter-clip reload buff to 2.8 seconds

Vickers Lights get armor nerf on turret and penetration nerf. I can imagine the CR and FV might get similar treatment.

I think both the tier 9 & 10 batchats need a better inter-clip buff.  2.5 atleast for both of these guys.

Yet again, M60 is just going to be the pay to win version of the M48. All the M60 could use is a DPM buff but not the same armor buff that will forever make the M48 irrelevant.

Exactly. Time for the M48 to get a substantial buff.

 

And how about an alpha buff for the Cent and Caernarvon since they technically have the same 20pdr gun as the AT15.

Caernarvon imo is fine at where it is, Centurion for sure needs a buff to compete with the FV-301 and the rather overrated AX. These tanks probably do need nerfs fair enough but either way, the Centurion is still in need of a dire buff. No gimmicky consumables/provisions for sure though.

Actually, the M48 only is getting a really, really nice lower dispersion on the move buff (according to open test info on Blitzhangar.com, at least). It'll be right up there with the Obj 140 for best dispersion on movement of all tier ten mediums.

 

Snap-shot-ing will be soooooooo fun now I bet!
