Recently or Historically? 

 

Because it’s nearly ineffective now against IS Spam.

Is the kpfpz70 ever going to get its historical (and probably more competitive) 120mm?

And will the Chieftain t95's tumor ever be removed?

i dont think the kpfpz will ever get that 120mm cannon since they did "buffed" (not really, that buff was really lame) the kpfpz this year it will be amazing if i can change this 152mm that doesnt do the damage of a 152mm

The "historical" 120mm is a myth.

 

Chieftain T95 is super easy mode, what reasoning are you employing to even believe it needs a buff?

I think only the Lowe takes less skill.

Well, I think they can do a "compromise" (insert obvious sarcasm). Take into account the Kpz actually fired the same projectile as the 105mm royal ordinance (and thus 350 alpha) at more or less the exact same shell velocity, and I believe we can afford it, approximately 260 millimeters of standard armor penetration solely based on the logic that it is a heavy tank and thus deserves a better gun.

 

We can then, accordingly, offer a rate of fire, similar to real life, of about 8 rounds per minute. Technically the Kpz can do 10 rounds per minute optimal scenario, but obviously that is tier 10 potential.

 

Or just remove it from future options because it should not be in the game in the first place. Unless we should pit a T-64A against it, at which point it could go either way.

T-64B would stomp it into oblivion though.

Blaze is okay, T-34-3 needs buff and we'll think how to improve it.

 

Here is the fix, give the Chinese mediums the heavy tank penetration that should go along with their heavy tank guns and alpha. The fact that they don't have this penetration is complete garbage! The T-34-3 needs a DPM and penetration buff.

The WZ-110 was the one useful Chinese heavy - a real heavium. 

   Great DPM, but lack of IS type armor.  

 Bad Change, as now it’s just another Chinese lemon tank inferior to everything.  

 

LTTB, meh probably did have too much as it could bounce a lot frontally even some tier 8 Guns.  

 

T-34-2,  a harder turret won’t help.  When the Hyoe 59 out DPM’s it, something is wrong...

 

 

 

Couldn't agree more. Leave the WZ-110 alone. Take into consideration the players that are playing it. Here is my view of the Chinese mediums:

 'Here is the fix, give the Chinese mediums the heavy tank penetration that should go along with their heavy tank guns and alpha. The fact that they don't have this penetration is complete garbage! The T-34-3 needs a DPM and penetration buff. '

I don't know the exact days they do it but it seems to be about every other day at 6: 30 am. Eastern time.


If you find that you lose more often then you win it may be time for you to admit that "the team" isn't the problem...

I seem to consistently roll higher in my vk45b then the kpfpz70.

It's absolutely agonizing to wait 17 seconds for sub 500 alpha.

Pershing buff, anyone?

 

Ribble, please do tell, what exactly does the Pershing bring to the table of tier 8 mediums that others do not?

 

 

It has a 90mm with 225 alpha and 180mm of pen: Average.

 

It has a 48 kilometer per hour top speed limit with a mediocre power to weight ratio: Below average.

 

It has absolutely abysmal hull armor, and a turret that's gun shield has huge, easy to pen cheeks right through the middle, to go along with the HEable cheeks on either side of the turret: Below average

 

It has a frontally mounted turret with 10 degrees of gun depression. That's nice, but the FCM 50t, or the T69, or Super Pershing, or the Centurion, or the STA-1, or any of these tanks have that, and something else that they bring to the table: Above average

 

I'm not saying the Pershing is in any league of terribleness with the likes of the Panther 8,8 or the M4 Ravioli, but is definitely in need of some lovin' in my opinion.

 

Spoiler

Pershing's advantages vs. Tier VIII mediums (tech tree).

 

  • Arguably best hull armor in terms of raw thickness; if used properly it has a huge advantage vs. its counterparts.
  • Middling penetration and DPM
  • Best gun depression of the Tier VIII mediums, tied with the IP, STA-1 and Centurion
  • Snappish gun handling (Tied with STA-1, Panther 2, and T-44 [with 122mm, on accident])
  • Super punchy APCR shells; best penetration in class and third highest base shell velocity (The list going Centurion 1st, P2/IP 2nd, Pershing 3rd)
  • Second highest HP pool of the Tier VIII mediums (Tech tree only)
  • Second heaviest of the Tier VIII mediums (this makes it ramming resistant against T6 Tardulas and other tanks that make the driver a ramming retard addict).

 

Overall the Pershing is the middle ground medium tank. The jack of all trades if you will. It's not particularly good in any specific category but it can perform adequately in most situations.

 

I could also argue that amongst the onslaught of noobs at Tier VIII, a good Pershing player can easily excel by going hull down as those noobs will not know how to pen the turret cheeks.

The Germans contemplated a prototype using the newly designed Rheinmetall 120mm smoothbore gun but scrapped the idea to maintain a level of changeability between the American and German vers.

If the game follows the same pattern as PC, promptly after we receive the Swedes and Chinese TDs, WG is going to promptly remove the SU-122-54 and replace it with a nerfed Obj. 263 and then replace the Obj. 263 with the Obj. 268 Vers. 4.

well since is a fact that they will remove lower tier tanks (to be a new player/noob friendly game), what will happen if you already have the tanks? will you get normal exp, free exp, credits or gold? i hope its free exp

What happens when you’ve been at this for a long time and have invested in almost every vehicle at all tier levels? Is this another wreck date coming in? Stripping off players vehicles or is it an emergency to the high turnover rate?
  5.1 Update is being discussed in news about all these gut changes about to spin off.
   Saw where separate ques were considered as an option.(?) I sent an answer a few times. I agree with longer tutorial periods for new players and still say 1k per tier and no premium purchases for tiers 7-10 until it’s earned. Enough!
