So I've been playing the t26e4 for a while. Since the last (two) update(s) I've been experiencing that I'm being penetrated a lot more than I used to be. Is the tank nerfed by any chance? And how to play it now with it being so badly(?) armoured?

I haven't noticed anything, but I haven't been paying much attention to the updates for this tank.  It got a pen buff and I seem to remember some player mentioning the lower plate was no longer as good, but I have no proof towards that.

I am now penetrated in my upperplate and turret aswell, especially in the capolar. This used to be much better in my idea.

There is no nerf of T26E4, just a huge powercreap of others premiums...

I was killed in a battle by a T26E4, and on arrival to the garage received a pop up message from WG don't want to lose again, buy a T26E4 PATRIOT on sale now!

 

Seriously hard core marketing there

just because the new OP premiums. Any tank with 240+ pen is able to pen SP frontally without aiming at the capolar.

T26E4 has loads of poorly armored areas. Believe it or not, i killed a T26E4 today with 17 pounder AP rounds (171 pen), just by placing my Crosshair directly at his turret, and let RNG do the work. To my surprise, both shots went in and he died.

But then how is it that I played this tank a lot better a few months ago? Then I used to bounce like everything. 

 

With the condition it is in now, it needs a buff somehow. Maybe higher speed so it's more a medium, or better armour.

No. Looking into the stats you have never played this tank particularly well.

 

The T26E4 has glaringly obvious weakspots the same as it always had. Any shot to the bottom of the turret, the large area beneath and surrounding the gun mantlet will penetrate with with ease, The cupola is easy to hit a mid range, and there has always been a huge machine gun port weakspot on the front. Anything of tier 5+ can penetrate that every time since it has 70mm of armour.

Not really. I just dealt 1k damage to a SuperPershing in my Black Prince with 171 pen. He just sat there and allowed me to pepper his cupola.

 

The SP works against inexperienced players. Experienced players will know how to hit your numerous weakspots. And seeing as the SP is one of the older premiums, there are lots of players that know how to deal with it.

T26e4 is not nerf.

But all new tanks got crazy gun, or crazy gold pen... Gold are more and more played too in my opinion (i take gold in the face of my scout in each game...)

That's all.

Well, since this tank has been released just a couple of month ago (if I remember well), may just be that more player lerned where to aim to damage you.

I never said I played it well, I only said I played it better a few months ago than I did now. 

 

It used to have weak spots, now the whole turret is a weak spot. The mantlet is easily penetrated, while it didn't use to be penetrated. The only thing that is still quite ok is the upper plate, but it indeed has this weak spot. Although I have the idea that even the upper plate is penetrated more.

why are you coming here ?  even if the SP wasnt changed even a tiny bit  for you its a fact it was nerfed

 

just recently i had a game a Jagdtiger bounced 3 shells in a row  thought i expected to be penned ...

 

mm might tend to put the SP in a bit more T9 games now  and higher tier tanks got more pen...

 otherwise SP armor was never foolproof if someone knew what hes doing it wasnt that mch of an issue to kill a SP

 

pretty much like the AT 2 when it was released you could have a blast with steelwalls and even T7 bouncing when the weakspot became widely know it wasnt much fun anymore

even more with generic weakspots for a whole line  and shooting the copula isnt wrong for most tanks anyway

Was not nerfed, the armour has always been good just full with small holes (cupola, turret cheeks, machine gun port, even lower plate depending on the angle, The engine deck is only 22mm and expands just a bit under the turret so if your enemy is a bit higher elevated they can triple overmatch you with 67mm+ caliber guns) so either you have been quite lucky as long or your enemies got high rolls, those can punch through the mantlet (I know the T34 can with prem).

 

It is one of the old Premiums where weakspots were still a thing.

 

Edit: to avoid further confusion

At 22mm they would need 67mm+ not 60mm...

Alright, will edit it for nitpicking reasons, I know of no 67mm guns in the game (correct me if I'm wrong on this) so any gun that is above 60mm of caliber will qualify for the overmatch rules.

SP is now weakest t8 premium. 

Cupola is pened trough gun trough,and ewerywhere arond u just need to hit turret now. 

Uper plate is pened with all t8 heavy tanks almost every time and if u use gold u can snapshot Super pershing with tier7 with no aim on weak spots.

Gun handling on SP is terible,aim time to long dispersion on the move and on turret traverse is too B.I.G. for medium tank if u see it 90mm gun.

Lover plate is good if they dont use gold if not u can say good bye.

IT NEED BUF ON ARMOR, COUSE OF PREMIUM AMMO, THAT GOES TROUGH SUPER PERSHING LIKE TROUG CHEESE  ALL OVER HIM U JUST NEED TO HIT HIM AMD ITS A PENN.
