Two minutes. That's how long it took before the crying started.

Chinese TDs that suddendly came out of nowhere? Okay then.

 

Probably going to be one of the most unhyped lines ever, tbh. Tier 10 is basically slower but bulkier 268, and when you factor 268 buffs, overall worse. Dont expect it to be popular line at all. Then again, since they were already modeled and balanced, why not? Only concern is that (most of them atleast) they are 100% fake, but given how WG likes to treat historical accuracy recently... ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

 

Should have brought Japanese TDs instead which are atleast very unique vehicles

 

Still, the Type 4/5 guns needs to be changed.

All the Chinese td's are fake. Not historically inaccurate. Blatantly FAKE and you all know it. please keep this crap to the Chinese server.

Like the new game mode, sound fun

 

On the SPG, please just reduce the parable of the projectile. Its ok to be hit if you are standing out in the open or hull down, but behind cover, its just annoying.

 

And SPG's should be a counter to the super heavies, campers and ridge line worriers, with this stun/splash mechanics all you are doing is life harder for lights and thin paper tanks, when it should be just the opposite.

>entire line of fake tanks

So when are we getting the E-90, the Jagdpanzer E-100 Krokodil and this tank that I just drew on a napkin? What happened to WG being against adding fakes unless they are extremely necessary?

So the Chinese army has/had no TD's?

 

Just for reference the Chinese have 20x the tanks Germany has....

They used Soviet TDs, and the only actual Chinese tank destroyer is the PTZ-89, which is a late 80s vehicle with a smoothbore gun. And that LVT conversion with the Russian gun mounted on that they could've used for a low tier, but decided not to for whatever reason.

 Nine Chinese TDs are revving their engines, ready to hit the battlefield. Yes, we’re talking about the line that rolled out on Chinese servers a few months ago. We know this is something you’ve been asking for, and we’re excited to make them available for all players.

 Who asked for those tanks?

Good balances, altough I dont like the dispersion increase on the AMX 30 and 30B. 

New 30v30 cool, maybe I can finnaly get the 10k dmg mark there. Will your results in that gamemode go in to the random battles statistics?

Those Chinese tanks look quite underpowered, altough I haven't seen the full hidden statistics. But the more tanks, more the fun.

And will there be more maps coming for the 30v30?

 

Lovely surprise WG!

"New Scenario for Random Battles"

 

As usual only for freaking tier X tanks...

 

Maybe it's about time to stop this "tier X tanks only" [edited]?

What happened to Frontlines? That was much more interesting than the 30v30 games.

How would they get money if everybody is not forced to shoot premium shells against the tier 10 super heavies when grinding through tier 8 and 9 - and when playing the tier 10? :)

New Chinese line looks a lot like the Russian one, so I don't see any problems there.

 

They have to cater to the fan base,In the European servers its the German Line and in Asian the Chinese.... I'm sure the Chinese have a lot of projects and tank blueprints and they actually have a lot of tanks...

30 vs 30, nice.

So instead fall down in 14 noob, you will find 29...

and when in normal game you try to reverse the tide 3/4 vs 6/8, now try to do in 3/4 vs 12/18...

any good player will avoid this lottery carnage as black plague, this scenario will be full of mega noobs...

so have fun...

 

edit: more than this, megaboring, think about just 2/3 players per side left  searching each other for hours.. but better of this...

the best habitat for campers...! GG

The new battle mode sounds good, I wonder if it'll be rolled out to lower tiers eventually, or weather this is the new 'endgame' scenareo to encourage tier 10 play.

 

like the sound of the arty splash damage change :great:
