Would a small buf to the lowe alpha damage (320-->360)  make it op??? Or even 340 atleast....

DPM is and never was the Lowe's strong side. Even with 360 it would just bump the DPM with a 100% crew up by 200... making it on par with the Tiger II. But then again it's dispersion is 0.16 lower then the IS-6, making it the 3th best among tier 8 HT's. And it's penetration is only beaten by the T34 of all the tier 8 HT's. If the DPM went up... I suspect WG would want one of those to go down.

The Lowe is a great tank. It doesn't need buffs.

might be true if you look at the tank itself

 

if you start to compare to to recently added heavies... are there players that would buy a lowe if they could get a crysler or defender for the same or even less money ? 

still i would prefer a nerf of these p2w win tanks over a buff of the lowe

Why would you buy a tank that can't even pen itself? At least the Lowe and T34 still has enough AP pen to deal with most of them. As I've yet to see a Chrysler do "well" in a tier X game vs a Lowe or T34 in a support role.

why are they bought ? because they are considered OP ? take out a T34 or a lowe and try to make them work if you dont go hulldown

crysler and defender hardly got to consider such stuff since there arent weakspots like copulas are rather weak lfps 

so even if they got problems to pen themselfs there are plenty of tanks they could still pen.

 

and just look at defender vs löwe

 

there is 9 pen. difference 

still upper front plate ~330 vs 220mm

lower front plate  220 vs 120mm

turret ...

you could hardly call it balanced 

even less if you compare it to the crysler

I'd prefer to see a very slight buff to reload rather than alpha. DPM will and should never be Löwe's strong point though as its gun is generally solid in terms of accuracy and penetration (RNG fvckery aside), and although a 9.8 second reload is quite underwhelming for 320 alpha the tank feels pretty balanced to me even with the powercreep circus refusing to leave town.

All those 105 mm gun on T32, Tiger 2, Vk auf A, KV 4 107, should get alpha buff to 350. Why? 

Look on IS 3 Bl 9. 390 alpha, 1025 credits. T32 320 alpha 1000 redtis, Tiger 2 320 1030 credtis. 

Let's face it, IS 3 get 70 more alpha damage for free, and its is economic and balance joke by WG. There are two way to balance this. 

IS 3 ammo cost should go up to 1285 credits per shoot, all those kind of guns should get this nerf ,or all 105 mm gun on tier 8 HT get alpha buff to 350, no ammo cost nerf. IS 3 is powerfull tank, and this make it more  powerfull and no reason why it should.

Löwe needs no buff. It is a good tank, and I'd rather GW kept it as is.

I'd rather give some other tanks a nerf. I think the Lowe is one of the few tanks  that is very well balanced at the moment.
