 LOL WUT? tho.. knowing WG only that armor will be applied to the 2 tiny spots next to the gun and the rest will be still garbage.

 

As you can see by the fact WG posted the UFP being "148 before" which in reality its only 50mm.. guess they mean effective?

 

ANYWAYS BUFF HYPE! ill take anything. tho the guns the worst in its tier for alpha/dpm combo.

 

 

Edit: forgot this part..

 

"we’ll increase the engine power to 650 h.p., which will allow this tank to reach its maximum speed quicker, become more mobile and dynamic overall."

If they do that they will need to buff all other tiers as well.

Engine buff is fine, but gun on this MT sucks hard. No dpm, bad aim time, very bad soft stats, and he get armor buff. Well if WG think its good idea...

IKR like. that amazing 230 alpha and trash tier DPM is going to be so OP with that armor that faces tier 10.

Point is simple. What we need is gun buff no armor buff on this tank.

i didnt say it is op. buff is *edited*.

i compare it with other tier8... you will not be able to pen this fv without prem ammo...

those 175/183 pen guns can just run away... and, fv at least has decent pen for premium tier8

Still less hp, dpm and worse gun handling than the Patriot so why *edited*

 

I agree though with the comments that dpm + handlingg should be buffed not making it an is6

And do what? give it DPM? its alpha sucks. they cant touch the pen or alpha because its shared on so many british tanks.  the alpha is the main reason the tanks blows, the gun handling in trash too. no matter how much you buff that gun the platform is trash (its MASSIVE), 230 alpha will never be good.

 

Edit: its like a panther8.8 but worse in everything besides pen.

I averaged 1800 DPM and 3 marks on my Cent I, the tank is workable if you can make it work. It really needed the turret buff IMO.....

 

...however.....

 

RIP TIER 7 MEDIUMS, now you won't be penning Tier 8 heavies nor Tier 8 meds, and will resort to 90% goldspam with partial success (200 pen wont go through these megabuffed fronts) or go shoot at St.Emils and Borsigs while theyre reloading

Sorry but that is plain wrong. It's only 10 alpha less than other t8 meds. That's not the problem. They can buff the bloom stats as those are not shared with other tanks. Give it god trier, super snapshot bloom and buff the DPM and the tank becomes glorious. Just make it a t8 m46 patton.

Fv has to aim longer then he need, this is problem, why this tank sucks. 105 m Sherman aim less then this, and hit for 390 so yea, buff to gun soft stats in needed. DPM should be bigget then Sherman 390 gun as well. 

Panther 88 has no armor, its bigger, has less camo, dont have this gun dep, way less pen. And 10 more alpha. Panther 88 and FV4202 are one the worst tanks on tier 8, MT
