I thought that rolling back in 8.5 is not a good option because 8.6 has some good points.in my opinion WG should run an official poll in order to see what are the points more players agree or disagree with.

well once again all my fav tanks are now a waste of my time tbh im thinking of moving on to another game
trying to get a win now is like pulling teeth
the accuracy buff  means any moron can hit you with out any skill whatsoever
the game is moving to a arcade game that has no bearing on a tank sim
my t26e4 is now a pile of scrap any tank can now pen the frontal armor which was its ONLY asset
need i go on

a rebalance was needed and 8.6 finally rebalanced the game

it has the same armor yes
but remember this is a game it could have 50% more armor but that does not mean its any better
the armor is calculated by math not thickness

right now i think the armor effectiveness is around 15 to 20% less than 8.5
also the ammo rack is around 15% weaker than before
and its around 10% more likely to catch fire
they are not exact figures but i have played it enough to know what's been changed

Well, now that the new accuracy thing's been added, the game has changed.
Before: it was all about armour thickness, penetration, DPM
After: Every single person is gonna be 1 shotted due to the fact that gold ammo can be purchesed with credits, DPM means nothing, it's now all about derp! I don't know about others but every game now it's like 8.6 has a noob fragence that has attrachted every person on the planet to WoT.

It used to be fun, but now, it's like the MM has changed, I rarely see tier 4 or 5 games in tier 4 or 5 tanks. Now, every time I press the battle button, I just wanna kill my entire team and say "it was gonna happen later, so I made it sooner"  :sad: .

I agree some tanks needed an accuracy boost (like the Churchill GC, some shots just go flying of to nowhere) but all of them? no. The M4 Sherman with the derp gun, why would anyone in thier sane mind give that thing an accuracy boost? Accuracy means nothing now, the matilda, the entire british tech tree, means nothing now. What good are tanks that have high pen but low alpha damage in a world where it's 1 shot derp gold ammo day everyday. The german tech tree means nothing now. WG has stuck to what I see as a new low to Russian bias claims. The ISU's BL-10, the entire Russian tech tree is made of tanks that fire alpha damage, it's just, I don't know. Soon, people won't even aim at the tank, they'll fire and the shot will automaticly hit and pen. :arta: + :facepalm:= :child: People just seem to be getting stupider then ever.

after that rant, I feel like the Hitler meme.

Agree - and since I play nothing BUT British Tanks...

I am getting 'Sharpshooter' almost every game - the rules for that achivement will need changing. And dieing, dieing fast.

From a 51% Win Rate I am getting 40% - I have become a drag on my team whose only use is to distract the enemy for a moment before a Russian points their gun in my general direction.

I live in some sort of hope that I will work out a way to survive eventually, but at the moment this feels like the 'Super-Nerf the British' update.

Because every other post in this topic is you complaining about it.

About the update, so far I like it but I haven't played it that much. I have yet to check how the S-Pershing plays now.

The only this I hate in 8.6 is the arty. Everyone knows that in 8.5 or previous versions it was a chance of almost 3-5% to have a match with the top tank/top tier arty no?
In a match with AMX50 100, I found that we had 2 tier 10 arties and the enemy an BC 155 58, and a Maus, not 2 arties. So, we just had to defend the arties which can oneshot the enemies..

WG obviously said that they reverted SP armor back to 8.5 and did not apply 8.6 changes.

it is a very bad balancing, also looking for another game......arty  is complete waste o time now. and the guy who says he is happy with less kills but enjoying more needs to get out more often
