Top speed reduced by 12.5% = "Boost to mobility"

 

Ahm. Wat?

And batchat 25t is still the best scout in the game...wg...you can play yourself with your tier 10 light tanks because i don't....and i want my beloved crew of my tier 8 lights to remain train on the new tier 8 lights.

Leopard: i guess its good

VK 2801: give the derp gun back!

SP1C: too long reload

HWK 12 good, i guess...

RU 251: WHAT IS THIS! 200 dpm increase, buff the dpm to like 2300

Rhm Pzw: Needs a gunhandeling and reload buff!

 

Some of the german Lt:s are good but some of the are total garbage...

RIP VK 28.01

 

"Here! We n̶e̶r̶f̶e̶d̶ ̶t̶h̶e̶ ̶l̶i̶v̶i̶n̶g̶ ̶c̶r̶a̶p̶ ̶o̶u̶t̶ ̶o̶f̶  rebalanced™ the german Light Tanks. But not the premium one because f**k balance.

 

NOW FOR A LIMITED OFFER:

Blackdog for 100€ and extra tosh because money.

 

Want to win Tier VIII Stronghold and CW matches more easily?

Buy now and get this rare borderline OP tank which will "never be sold again in the future™" for half the price!

 

EDIT:

"we significantly ramped up the VK 28.01’s top gun parameters, increasing its AP shell penetration to 132 mm."

And they nerfed its Reload-speed, its Aimtime, its turret-traverse dispersion, its Ammorack/Track Health, its Topspeed and Viewrange.

 

So... where is the Antiscout and Artyhunter in your rebalance, WG? I don't see it!

Aufklärungspanzer Panther should have been the Tier 10.

Really disappointed in the loss of the 10,5 on the VK. If it would have been OP with the new MM, why not nerf it instead of turning a unique tank into yet another boring, standard one?!

Pre 9.18 the 10,5cm on the VK had almost the same characteristics as the 10,5cm on the Pz.IV, you know the medium tank one tier lower....

But suddently it's OP while the Hetzer, LEFH and Pz.IV have almost the same gun 1-2 tiers lower farming off new players by sending them into the garage after 1 hit.

WG doesn't realize that the 10,5cm made the VK 28.01 an antiscout and artyhunter, not the crappy 7,5cm. Nobody used the 7,5cm and that for a reason!

 

It's almost the same gun as the one on the Pz. III/IV and you struggled with this gun against tier 7, the vk had to see Tier X in the past. The 10,5cm was always the better choice.

Bring back the 105. Now the VK 28.01 is just another light tank,

While we are on this subject:

 

I had the RU251 in my garage so when it moved to tier 9 why didn't I get all the modules unlocked on the T8 light which needs to be elited before unlocking the T9 tank?

 

Why have I now got a supposedly elite T8 light tank in my garage now with only half the modules unlocked?

I love the new HWK 12. too bad it came with 50% crew so I had to transfer my SP1C crew in it.....

Fun tank to play especialy for players who had a lot of games in SP1C

The VK 28.01 is a sick nerfed joke now.  The 'oh so much improved' 75mm is utter crap - dispersion, aim-time, alpha damage just rubbish.

 

Mine will stay in the garage for a few months in case WG find someone with a working brain cell who will bring back the 105mm.

A Leopard 1 has comparable camo when stationary, similar vision abilities with a semi-decent crew and mobility which isn't far off. Why anyone would want to go for the RHM is beyond me....

I would like to say something about german lights:

 

Remove arty! :izmena:

 

Does not make any sence does it? Well... arty doesn´t make any sence either and it's still in the game :D

M41 90 is only tier 8 (sure its not balanced now but that's topic for other day) LT in game and it cant even train crew for german top tier?! Was any thought given to this at all?
