When I first got the Anko.. I did pretty well in it.. at least, I was able to maintain a higher then 50% wr in it.

But, when I pulled it out of the garage this past weekend. I found the thing to be so sloooooooowwww, I could barely keep up with my team mates.

Seriously, it feels like I'm driving a British heavy.

Was it nerfed? Or am I just.. remembering it being more perky then it ever really was?

Looking into the eyes of an infant is like staring into the heart of a star... Pure. And blazing.

 

Also.. it's never a pleasant experience to bite into a SlimJim, and discover a toenail. 

huhh.. there's another one..

I don't know about that tank specifically, but several tanks (mediums and lights) I drove over the weekend felt very sluggish.  Almost as if their equipment was removed.  Maybe it's just from being too accustomed to faster tanks, I dunno.  Except some of these were 'fast' tanks.  Put your collective tin foil hats on and discuss.

Not to my knowledge. It was never the fastest tank out of the gate but still seems the same to me.

(Tin Foil hat firmly in place.) I SWEAR that tank was a quicker, faster tank. It just feels ridiculously slow to move and traverse its turret now. I feel like I'm playing the old, nerfed T29 turret on a British heavy chassis. This Anko just doesn't feel like it used to. I don't have hard numbers.. they wouldn't mean anything to me anyway if I did. 

But I am definitely missing the way it used to handle.

^^^^^ I had the same experience this weekend. I chalked it up to old timers disease or WG is secretly screwing with my tanks. Probably was my first choice.

I drove it not too long ago and the aiming seemed really slow compared to the M4 Sherman.  It's not quick drive, never has been.

You probably have been playing a lot of lights, I play a lot of slow heavies and tds so when I pick it up to relieve my stresses it feels like I’m driving an lttb

I do really miss how the Anko (among other tanks) handled when I could equip them with track grousers.

I had those on my stug, it handled like it does now even though that was before the buff

I had them on my Stug as well.  It seemed to spin a little faster then.  I miss the snapshot ability that the grousers offered on mediums.

so now we have country appropriate voices I wonder if we'll get the other 2 tanks with super annoying but better than German shouting GuP voices? 

Big Gunz and Ammo Rackz.

i can tell you that most fast tanks fell like they got their acceleration nerfed or something my kpfpz70 was faster before 4.8 maybe im wrong and could be that the resistance to terrains got something changed since that doesnt appear in the tank info or anywhere

Sorry for my english, its not my natal language.

I think a lot of this is just a better understanding of how to play against a specific tank. I have felt this way about many tanks I hadn’t played in awhile. Just seems like the general player base is more prepared for you. :playing:

WG won't directly nerf premiums because people have probably she;;ed out real $$ for them:angry:.

 

That said, she did feel a bit more sluggish than when I get her a few months ago

THAT is entirely possible. And to be honest, I hope there is truth to that idea. Because  a more prepared playerbase.. a smarter playerbase.. is a good thing. For all of us. More fun too.

I think it's only perception due to to your own increasing experience (the game seems slower as you read and react faster) and due to gradual power-creep (new fast tanks get added).  I used to think various tanks were fairly perky, and when I go back and play them on occasion they seem quite leisurely.
