Overplayed. They are nerfing them in hope less ppl will play them so this balances the ratio or something.

Me too (though I've "only" got 3 skills). I suspect there will be many cries of "Chinese Medz are OP", due to the large number of '59 drivers who have highly skilled crews to drop straight in to them.

This game can't have enough meds for me, so bring 'em on.

You have a bug there if you click the tech tree picture, that fancybox plugin shows the picture underneath the video. You need to set wmode="opaque" on the flash.
Here it is:

<object width="640" height="390">
   <param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/5MjOuNszsPc"></param>
   <param name="wmode" value="opaque"></param>

Wait, the chinese tanks have the "shooting accuracy of the british...." but i though the Germans speciality was accuracy. Guess not, so what do the Germans specialise in if not armour and accuracy anymore? Any WG employees to answer this would be a great help

Pretty much. Although the changes in this patch are only affecting HP, mobility and some accuracy on the move, meaning it is mostly to make them less effective in direct combat, where they overperform in their ability to survive direct fights with other tanks by tanking a shot (enough HP for that, especially if the tank faced is a med) and returning thrice that. It's no issue for lights due to their speed, but other tanks suffer.

Ultimately, in their role they'll perform the same though (long range indirect fire, the splash change is very minor).


Not really impressed by the chinese tree by the way. Early tanks are interesting (first jap tank), rest is just russian tanks with some added flavor.

And the pen with no dmg bug? I understand spaced armour, but from the front of tanks not alot of them have spaced armour.

British TDs are scheduled for 8.4. More german stuff (Meds & TDs, I think), for 8.5.

I want a Type 59 but if they did this to the Spershing id be very happy to forget about the Type and stay with the Spersh.

Soooo.. In this video i hear modified engine sounds. Is it WG admitting the current ones are crap and we finally get new ones with 0.8.3 or just for the atmospheric porpuse of the video?
