So you are turning this game once again from a game that requires skill, to a game that requires luck. You say you can hit a moving 'unbelievable' shot, yes you can, if you have the ability required to lead. Now it will just be the case of spam more ammo because you probably won't even hit if you aim in. What about tanks with such poor penetration that they need to use weakspots? Such as the IS-6, terrible penetration, I have to use gold in it, and even then it's horribly inaccurate, these accuracy changes means no more IS-6 for me, which means no more gold ammo, I will just play a tank with 300mm pen on standard shells where weakspots don't matter. You want heavies to have more survivibility? Maybe give them more HP? Or is that too much of an easy and obvious solution. The RNG is bad enough on pens and tiering, god know how many people will drift away and try other games because they don't want to play that slots game WoT.

http://ftr.wot-news....ange-explained/ explains the accuracy changes better.

 

Honestly, I'm surprised WG EU didn't put up those same pictures in the article.

So now WT's actually have to rely on others spotting and not just staying invisible on absurdly short distances? That's a thumbs up from me.

So to summarize the Changes Summary:

1. Heavies will be even more difficult to kill. So my OP KV-1 will be even more difficult to kill in a Tier 5 and under game. Same applies to all OP heavies now.

2. After killing off the E-25 you are removing any advantage left to the TD. Longer aiming times and shorter vision. Making the light even more dangerous to TDs at the same time. Great my TD will be found faster by a light and will not be able to counter it an at the same time be opened up to heavies that are more difficult to kill. Battles do not result in great numbers of TDs anyway, so giving their minimal numbers even more difficulties seems a great move.

3. Lowering general accuracy will only result in sales of gold ammo increasing.

 

Now I challenge WG to provide us statistics indicating that these changes will actually result in a better game for the user. Before you bring 9.6 in publish your gaming statistics, then before you bring 9.7 in publish again giving us all proof that this is what happened. When this is not the case WITHDRAW those changes that did not bring about the published desired results (not those hidden ones everyone is talking about with this upgrade).

 

If you really want to improve you game in the face of mounting competition from other tank games then it is about time you started listening to your users.

 

Take up the challenge WG - before it is too late...

WG, you are ruining this game day by day it seems. The TD nerf, was needed. But the accuracy nerf? Shooting weakspots on the move you say.... hmmm.... GOLD FTW!

This.

I know that you like community feedback, even negative. Well, one year ago I said "no more money from me WG" and I made a mistake paying 5 euros for free exp during christmas. Not anymore, But gj with the light tanks, maybe my amx 1375 will be better :^)

There is only one way to fix the LT issue in this game, release spotting damage to the public domain so the WNx system can take this into account.

 

Currently you can play a great scouting game, just spotting thousands of damage for your team and get a WN8 below 100 for that game, clearly something is wrong.

since td's are getting nerfed and will not be so dominant, it would make sense to change platoon td missions maybe? 50% dmg by td platoon done to enemy is hard now (well we did it in few games, but I still think it's tough) and it will only get a lot tougher with new patch.

time to say goodbye War Gaming and World of Tanks
or maybe not a goodbye just leave something that I'm starting to dislike, this game is turning to something I don't wanna be a part of..
+2 tier mm was enough till now, with this ''accuracy balancing'' I will be not able to do s**t in game gg wp must say.

anyone can say such mimimi and cry but some tanks were hard enough to play till now in 9.6 it will be absurd.

WG wants you to spend $$$ on premium TDs (E-25 and SU-122-44, I am looking at you).

Wow. No matter what WG does, trolls will troll and whiners will whine. I especially like conspiracy theories such as "so more miss shots per battle,more lost credits=more people buy premium time.nice move wg..."

Afaik accuracy increase that happened last year shouldn't have happened at all, so good move on that. I also support TD view range nerf, it will make TDs more dependent on the team instead of being one-man armies. 

As for those who "won't download the patch", "won't renew their premium" and so on, don't let the door hit you on your way out. 
The game isn't perfect, far from it, but steps in the right direction should be supported.
