I don't understand the reason not to nerf Premium tanks. Currently the most OP premíum tank is Defender. It makes other tier 8 vehicles obsolete. It should be nerfed. Players that bought it should choose to get nerfed status defender or get gold compensation instead. 
 
Currenly this vehicle is making every other tier 8 Premium tank obsolete. So if WG don't nerf Defender they tell me that i bought 10 (or something like that) tier 8 Premium tanks for nothing... And the Edited  it, is more valuable for the game than me.
 
I really don't like OP vehicles, i care about balance. And it's fine that OP premiums should be balanced. I don't want to play Type 64, E25, etc. because thay are OP (i own those). I want to play balanced tanks. 
 
So when WG is not nerfing defender they are pointing middle finger to old customers.

My Skorp G eats defenders , My STRV S1 eats defendenders and my object252 usually eats other defenders. The tank is unbalanced not op .I don't have much trouble in most teir 8s . But ive heard the defender is at its weakest verses a  teir 8 tvp 1v1

As stated above, the Defender/Obj. 252 is not OP, but horribly unbalanced. There's a difference. Skorpion might be considered as OP, but it isn't very unbalanced.

Inb4 thread lock.

 

Also, when I bought the Skorpion G, I chose to buy it, not gold. If WG can't or won't provide certain vehicles to be bought for gold, I see no reason why should I be compensated in gold either, should the vehicle be removed.

The real question is, why do you assume you're better than the said person?

 

Players like you are the reason why I'd rather throw "balance" out the window since WG does bother itself listening. Something tells me whiners spend too much time licking it to no avail.

As your account is from 2011... I'm sure you know why that policy is there. And how badly the T26E4 nerf went. That did end up with a full refund if you wanted it due to the rage and fallout that followed it. WG don't want to do that again. So thus shortly there after. They went for the removal of the E25 to. As in crowd control vs nerfing. And that's what they have done to the defender. It's currently on the "not gonna sell it list" with the 13 57 and M41 GF.

 

And no.. I don't find it OP. No I don't own it. It's just badly balanced as a top tier. As 90% of the Defenders still die rather fast if not top tier, just like the Chrysler K.

Whatever you are smoking, you should stop. It's bad for your brains.

Defender is literally THE MOST OP T8 tank.

And yet for someone who is so concerned by balance you still managed 800+ games between them..

Well i have played type 64 5 times after scout mm and vstab buff. Before scout changes it had current mm+1 and it was balanced.

Most e25 games i had was in the pass, when i didnt have good crew and didnt know how to play it.

Yep. It's OP. And imbalanced. Because it's the same thing.

Why is a tank that overperforms ny 4-5% for every part of the player group not OP? (Overpowrred).

 

It is the archetype of overpowered tank.

Defender is one of the most OP tanks (together with Maus) this game has ever seen.

I don't understand the reason not to nerf Premium tanks.

 

EU consumer rights rules do not permit the providers of electronic services to down grade items that customers have paid for.

Most EU states have created their own electronic consumer rights laws as well.

WG is a large company spread over most of the EU, and their corporate lawyers are well aware of the fines that the Commission could level against a company who breached regulations on an EU wide scale.

This the reason WG will not nerf premium tanks. If they did so they would need to offer the consumers of the electronic licences permitting use of a pixel good their money back.

It might be pleb-proof, but there are better tanks, at least for good players.

It should simply never have been put on sale in the first place. Wargaming knew it was broken overpowered and still sold it for real money.

 

You know why I know this? The alternative is they actually have no clue what they are doing in terms of balancing which is even more scary....

 

Thus by releasing this tank in it's current state they have proven they really do not give a rats [edited]about balance and the longevity of this game but only care about short term financial gains.

Which tier 8 heavy is better?

 

Not trolling but I don't have any of the new tier 8's and its certainly the toughest opponent to face in same or lower tiers.
