Secondly, I'd like to say to those people saying that running the 12,8 cm gun on the Rhm-Borsig is stupid, click this: https://www.blitzstars.com/player/com/I_Maverick_I

 

I am running the Borsig with the 12,8 cm recently and been excelling in it. Go to my tanks below, tap on 30 day results, and look at my Borsig stats. Ranked #8 rn currently

 

It not that you cannot preform with the 12,8 its the fact that the JpantherII Is essentially better in every way when using the 12,8 on the Rheinmetall borsig.

Its like using a 122 gun on the isu 152, while yes it can do well, the 152 gun is the whole point of the Tank.

Here, I'll put it in Russian too, just in case:

 

183 полностью подавлен. Это разрушает уровень 10. 
Кроме того, решетка - это бесполезный танк, который едва выполняет. 
Начните играть в свою игру, боты, чтобы вы могли понять, что буквально каждый игрок знает

 

Insulting someone for a specific action and then doing the exact same thing. The irony, the stupidity... Bravo! That translation is pretty mediocre btw.

And what might be your personal opinion on the Fv215b (183)?

That has to be an outlier. Compare the 62A to the 140—the 62A is clearly superior, yet players are doing bad in it? WG can't just rely on player performance to balance tanks. Prime example: MBT 70. It is widely considered to be a bad tank, deserving of a tier 8 placement, yet the average win rate is 58%, higher than any other tier 9 tank. WG has admitted its graphs don't differentiate between players' skill level; in other words, a 55% player's performance in a tank will be looked at in the same way a 65% player's performance will. 

 

My original point was that the 62A is not overpowered, and used the fact that it is struggling as evidence. It is a bit of an outlier...I ranked it C+ tier, and nobody disagreed, but its winrate/dmg suggests D tier.

 

So, we are both correct.

Well, i don't have it and don't want it to be honest. Not my type of gameplay - this is what i realized after about 30 battles using it. Scary gun and awful aiming. For me is has more drawbacks than strengths.

For poo and giggles I thought I'd try out the 12,8 like you said. Wow! Its like a tier 8 Grille. Not huge alpha but stupid accurate and better pen. Thanks for the suggestion man

This is true for myself as well. But Ribble, you can't deny, the strengths out way the weaknesses. Although, because it does have very specific weaknesses and very specific strengths, it's just as easy to hate it as love it, but there's no denying in either case, the tank is toxic to tiers nine and ten.

Not the strengths, just the utter trollish ness.

For me 183b is tier 10 KV-2. Scary but vulnerable enough.

If true, it seems questionable to adjust the tank to the variances in the player-base and not the individual tank to the other tanks within the tiers it would face.

 

If true, it really does infer as to why so much of this game has become frustrating to me and no doubt others. Let the player-base adjust to the tanks & game. Not everyone needs a trophy. Not everyone enjoys the seemingly whimsical changes.

There’s a difference. The KV2 has horrible accuracy. The 183 can snapshot. KV2 has awful camo. 183 can camp Bush for days, bomb 1300 HESH and not be spotted. Those two things are why people dislike the 183 compared to the KV2. However, I respect your opinion and I hope you do likewise to mine.

A KV-2 can one shot tanks, and the 183 cannot one shot tanks (asides from ammo racks and lighting fires, and the occasional super high roll on a Tier IX. I drive a Grille 15 at Tier X most of the time and I do a good job of not getting hit by 183's. Honestly, as long as you are map aware and decent at the game like most of us here are,  you should have nothing to worry about. HESH can be scary, but the 183 has terrible mobility and cannot chase after tanks. If you don't want to tango with a 183, just drive away. If you're in a situation where you can't drive away from a 183, that's your fault for getting into that position.

The 183 like the KV-2 is while annoying isn't game breaking.  My issue is the number of them seen in a match.  Seeing a tier X game with 8 tank destroyers of which 4 are 183's sucks.  It creates a stagnant environment that is generally not fun at all.

Ribble, this means a lot to the players who come to the forums.  Knowing that we can bring a concern to you and that you'll take it to your colleagues - that is great.  I do see that the Kpf 70 has some of the best stats on paper (winrate, etc), but even if nothing is changed, at least you've talked about it.
