They rasied the HESH ammo price. It's really expensive now, so according WG it's not overpowered.

Babs out!

Of course there will be a nerf. In the 0.8.5. Until then WG can collect plenty of money from players. After that they nerf  british td to the ground and say: "C'est la vie!"

And to the Community Team: It would be great to see the 0.8.4#1 to 0.8.4#2 changes on the EU pages too not just on the NA site.
