Maybe 220 pen with 390 alpha? C'mon, at least make it sound reasonable...

Err... 85M dident get a DPM change after the buffs. they literally made it stupid levels of DPM with great in tier pen and very high alpha for a med. literally no reason to touch another tier 6 at this point. that 1 tank dominates them. to remotely keep 85M balanced to Thunderbolt levels. TB would need 175pen to offset the worse alpha and much lower DPM.

 

Yes it did indirectly. Correct they didn't change it's rof/reload, but they did change / increased it's ALPHA from 160 to 180.

This resulted in a DPM change, thus increase from: 1,925.27 to 2,165.93. Thus it's Damage Per Minute did change ;)

 

See:

9.17 pre buff stats: https://tanks.gg/v0917/tank/t-34-85m

9.18 current stats: https://tanks.gg/v0918/tank/t-34-85m

Warrent's 175 is a bit hyperbolic indeed.

 

My advice for some years: give a global buff to all tanks that can mount the M1A2 76mm. Give that gun the same pen buff as the T23E2's M1A1 76mm had gotten: 149 mm penetration.

Buffing the pen to slightly better levels of 85M wont offset everything else that tank has. its just a patheticly higher pen gun with worse everything else...

I agree, but at least it would be something!

Which is way better than leaving it, and all E8 variants we have now, with nothing. Meaning it's puny & power creeped pen for tier 6 standards.

 

Also it would help all the other US tanks that use the M1A2 76mm as main weapon. A.k. the needed US tech tree rebalance.

 

Heck the T20 would than gain a choice of setup, going for DPM or Alpha.
