I'm just going to cry in my leopard then. 

 

On a serious note: WG is justifying this buff by saying that many people suck in this tank even after the last few patches. 

To all those people who are sucking in it: how is it possible?!

It has everything going for it now: Good armor, laser-like accracy, dpm that is in another world, camo, and mobility. 

And now, another pen buff... this is starting to negate the med pen this thing got.

Now, it's more of a main battle tank than a medium.

For me -- it is the lack of gun depression that makes me suck (extra)

I’ve noticed a strong lack of Spare Parts. Is that intended?

No, it is not. This problem will solve itself with time. Many players have several dozens of vehicles in their Garages, so they don’t have enough Spare Parts for the entire vehicle fleet. But you will gradually collect enough Spare Parts to unlock new slots for purchased tanks in time.

where u even playing WoTB in 2014-15?  thats an OP T-62a.  now its just a good tank thats getting slightly better.  not a big deal. this is coming from someone that predominately plays heavy tanks...  i could care less about the buff. it is what it is. the ebbs n flows of WG logic.

And the only thing the Object 140 still has going for it is the giant MG on top, which is the only reason I got it.

Yeah, while they have you ranting about gun stats, they sneak a credit raise in the shells for 140. Same pen and dmg, but 10% more expensive. I wish they stop messing with the tank stats. It’s impossible to settle on a tank. It’s impossible that they ever get it right as stat padders will always adapt to the new op. In the meanwhile they just break tanks I enjoyed to play, sneaking shady upgrades in the back. I still don’t know what they did to drac’s rear last update.

True, medium tanks are relatively less powerful now than they were in the past, but the point is that it makes absolutely no sense to drive the Leopard, with its supposed German gun handling, when the Russian T-62a beats it in that category. Ruskie meds were supposed to have inferior guns and better armor than the Germans. Now, they have better armor AND better guns. Which doesn't make any sense. It ruins the experience.

 

Now if you'll excuse me, imma get back to wrecking people in my Foches


Some people say the Type 62 is overpowered. Having >500 battles and a 67% winrate, I may agree. However, none of y'all realize just how uncomfortable it is to sit down on these flimsy plastic seats with "Made in China" emblazoned on them. I mean, my cupholder just broke in half. How the f#%$ am I supposed to fire 250mm pen HEAT shells at the fronts of Tier 8 heavies if I have to be holding my Red Bull in one hand at the same time? It's ridiculous.

Different round -- APCR now, used to be AP.

 

Also -- you mention "stat padders" -- WG has told us they pay the most attention to how the 55-65% crowd does in a tank, for adjustments.  

 

If you distrust WG so much - why do you play?

Sortofabuff.

 

Someone rightly noted that the 62 will shoot APCR as standard ammo but the 140 will shoot AP, with only a 5mm diff in pen

 

AP gets better shell normalization - will likely be a wash
