The latest update brought 29 HD models and this got us thinking about their armour.

Yeah about the T110E5 after encountering it frequently in battles, the armour is very good now unless you want to spam premium ammo even at the little turret. Maybe even too good.

 

Now don't get me wrong, it's good to see another heavy than the IS-7 having nice BS armour but in the matches I've played the T110E5 now consistently comes out as the top vehicle both in damage blocked as well as damage done since 9.10.

"Accurate historical data" oh give me a break. Stop trying to use this as an excuse. IS-3 anyone?

pff historical...ofc, imho the E5 didn't need such a hughe buff, completely negating the weakspot even for most tier 10...

 

OT: and wow .... when was the update released? and now you post major changes:facepalm:

thank god there are blogs out there which do a better job than you...

and what about "Collector's Gem of the Week" announcement? it started yesterday morning and is only valid for the next 18 hours, i.e. it ends tomorrow morning, and not a single word about it on the website....probably it's pretty useless since the map limitation one of them gets to see 2 maps the other 4...much fun:great:

It got nerfed so many times that little buff wouldn't do any harm.

I wanted to bash WG EU for posting this info TWO WEEKS after implementing these changes, but I checked and guess what? WG RU made this post only 3 days ago. So actually what we have here is incompetence of not WG EU, but WG RU. WG EU did rather good job translating original article to all european languages in 3 days. Did I really say "WG EU did rather good job"?  :ohmy:  That means we can expect unicorns to appear now.

just an excuse for people to spend more premium ammo. nothing to see here ,pay along. That was the whole point of the new jap line of heavy tonks btw. Probably people did not spend enough premium ammo at lower tiers. Fenks Warrigging.

Indeed...while I am thankful for this comparison to Wg, I find ridiculous that they even talk about ,,historical accuracy'' in this game while the russians are super buffed compared to the germans which were much more advanced tanks in every aspects.

They talk about historical accuracy (maybe on 3d rendered models they have right), but they don't count the armor quality, the tank's top cannons are sci-fi in order to make german tanks even less effective/easily penetrable. The German 8.8 mm cannon was far far better than the russian 120 mm. Is not even comparable in real life, while in this game...no comment man. Let's just not talk about that so called historical accuracy in this game, okey, WG?

P.S>...russian and russian like mediums has stronger turrets than german and other super heavies...very accurate historically.

If I see this right, the ARL 44 has been nerfed? I mean, the numbers say so. Correct me if I'm wrong.

Add: also, T71 now looks like a bucket on top of a flat-top pyramid.

I have a question : If i don't update my client to HD and it will remain SD(standard) as it is right now ,does that armor change apllies to my E5 too ...? or i need to update the client to HD version in order to get my E5's armor change(buff).In fact this question applies to all the tanks that gets changed.

I like very much the diagrams with before/after values.

It would be nice to have this for all tanks in the official tankopedia...

Honestly, I am curious if the Jagdtiger chances also apply to the 88. version as well. In theory it should...
