Hi guys girls

 

As i sit here and watch it rain i ponder the new patch 9.9. Just read some of the notes updated ones and there is one that strikes me 

Fixed some issues with the damage and armor models of the following vehicles: T-62A (front of the turret), M6A2E1 (front and sides of the turret), T110E3 (front of the superstructure and hull). With the E3 what does fixed mean or what has been fixed?? 

 

Also what do you all think of the nerfs to ammo and guns from tier 8 -10 i mean when tier 8s get tier 10 mm it's going to be near impossible to pen anything or am i reading into all this wrong. So what u all think patch 9.9 good bad or ugly. I kept this brief. So vent all u want ;-)

The problem is that these changes were canceled on RU forum and even though it's official the EU "Development" section is still obsolete.

I think it's a huge mistake in general. The only guns I can think of that need a good 'ol whack from the nerf hammer is the BL10. I don't mind playing against tanks like the WTE100, 215b 183 etc., that tank gives me the heebee-jeebies.

I'm a med player, and if they nerf meds, asta la vista WG...

Or I'll just go and grind myself and IS7 and LMAO that I'm carrying 9/10 games because Stalin.

Yea played the Mauschen just cannon fodder for arty a real piece of crap. They should just nerf the Vk and leave it in the game. Also i noticed yes all the big changes were taken down. I don't think they were popular among players. Well i assume they are not going ahead for now.

Nerf the VK4502b? Why? It's a horribly inflexible one trick pony that everyone knows how to deal with by now. Just because you can't penetrate the lower glacis doesn't mean you can't penetrate it frontally. This tank should only be nerfed when it's put in tier 8 (at most) and made premium.

The VK doesn't need a nerf, it just needs a change. It (along with the ISU and most arty) is yet another one trick pony that (if you ask me) has no place in the game.

Not every tank needs to be a jack-of-all-trades medium. Variety is important.

You obviously don't get why it was being replaced.

 

It was not being replaced because it was OP, pretty much the opposite in fact.  It has been buffed way beyond what it would have been had it ever gone into production in a failed attempt to make it a viable tier 9.

 

I don't know who looked at the Mauschen and thought that would work out though, whoever it was has never played WoT.

I agree that variety is important, my own hatred of the tank is just shining through. :P

 

The thing with the VK is that it is so situational that a lot of the time you are pretty much useless. It is kinda frustrating to play and I was looking forward to a replacement. Ah well.

They fixed "something" on the M6A2E1, but broke something else at the same time....

 

I reported it, no response. Typical WG style.

Yea the mini maus is a disaster. If they replace the vk tier 9 will be swamped with these pieces of crap. Test server is down not sure when it is back up. But as usual wargaming don't say anything.

On paper it looks great to me:

 

Awful Panther and it's reversed umbrella antenna gone, replaced with a fun looking 3 shot autoloader (IE a proper light tank, not a medium in disguise like the awful panther)

Japanese Tiger - Tiger is a great tank and the short 8.8 is quite potent at tier 6. On top of that I collect japanese tanks.

Better AA - Finally less jaggies!

HD models of various tanks - always welcome

 

I'm not sure how to feel about the Mauschen, it did sort of look like what the Maus should have been tier for tier, but the Maus is terrible to play so it might have been the same. I really like the VKb so I would be a bit sad to see it go. It's always fun to see the people whining that they can't autopen a lfp of a tank, as if all tanks should have the same weakspots. Sure, in some situations the VKb can be really op, but it's cupola isn't that hard to hit, and no tanks at those tiers will have any trouble going through the sides or just permatracking it.

What are you talking about? IS tank is very balanced, might even need more buffs. :trollface:

At least they say, they cancel it. But this is public. Unofficially we do not know what will be implemented actually.....

They already confirmed, that time to time developers are changing some things in the live server "just for test statistic collection, only not significant thinks..."

So, we do not know what statistic they will need to colect and how significant they see this nerf.....
