Although I feel a lot of this "balancing" is unnecessary, I am excited for the buffs of the Black Prince, AMX M4 45, and the KV-3. I feel these heavies weren't quite as competitive as the others, so this will be nice.

I’m with Crusader on this one.

 

Some of these tanks are already very strong and/or OP.

 

Reliablity is questioned...

 

 

Yep, this update has me a little puzzled. That list has a couple of my favorite heavies. I like that three of the tanks I have v-stab's for are getting buffed though. That works for me.

The Lupus doesn't need a buff...
It has a tier 8 armor profile, both sidescraping and hulldown capabilities, and to top it all off 12 degrees of gun depression.

 

It need since almost all heavies buffed. Mean all Lights/Mediums nerfed. . . .

yeah the tiger by now will literally be a medium tank. It will have the armor of a t43 and a better gun too boot. All it loses is a bit of mobility.

 

Tiger I is already a heavium which can easily deal with mediums, after the buff, it can catch up some lights.

It was already far ahead of any of the other tier 7 heavies.

Even without the buff it'd still be the top dog.

With the recent buffs to the Churchills, the Black Prince buff might just make the whole line worth keeping! I'm peeved about the Lupus buff, though. Highly unnecessary.

Return of the KV3!!! Rise from the grave you ancient beast!

 

thank [edited]too, just started on it heading toward the ST-I and IS-4, and while it isn't bad - the armour can work (although as i told 4s the other day, i had a KV-2 pen it twice through the glacis with 152mm AP while i was angling at 200~m) - it is just way to slow and clumsy to rely on.

Slowly making the E25 more difficult with which to carry. Thanks, WG.

the apcr buff did a lot for that tank. It used to require much more planning when speed and stealth were the only real two strong suits. DPM? It's got tons of it, but it took some figuring out and maneuvering to make the best use of it against, say, the typical Russian heavy. Now, you can let that rof go on pretty much anything from pretty much anywhere.

  I one-shot a KV3 through the front with a missle in my 49ATGM at Naval Frontier a few months back. I’ll bet that guy wasn’t happy. That’s why when you said you were penned through the front by a KV2 I wasn’t surprised.

I am sure this will all go well with no unintended consequences.

 

[edited]XD

 

 

i think the changes are quite even across the tier. 

+ mobility 

+ dPM.

 

my understanding is that mobility is to make them on par with the mediums and lights at tier 7

and DPM to make them on par with the tier 8. Cause we are expecting a similar tier 8 rebalance some time soon as well. 

 

side note : french lights suck, they will suck even more.

 AMX13-90 I’m specifically thinking of u wasting my garage space and lowering my stats. 

 

 

 

 

Side not #2 :

 

wow :  l m a o  is censored, wow. Didn’t know I could be that offensive.

Already re-bought the BP.  Gonna roll that [edited]with impunity.  A little angle, a little wiggle whilst blasting the [edited]out a reds.  OMG this is going to be awesome!

Really.  You last played the BP in 2015.  I had solid purple stats until I rebought it to ace... sliding ever since.  The BP is probably the most power crept tank at tier 7.  It’s too slow to stop the hoards of fast things making it team dependent.  Know how many teams can be depended on?
