Turretless TDs aren't worth the effort.

 

Most maps don't offer long range sniping and the few that do offer little cover.

 

They're mostly a chore.

 

Unless this line is seriously OP I will be ignoring it like the French TD line and British TD lines.  I regret starting the Russian lines and will probably ignore the US E3 line in favour of the E4.

Even the tank names are close GTFO.

Looks nice and reading that article gave me some experience in how to play Low tier and mid tier :)

Here, take a small taste of the top tier Chinese TD, the WZ-113G FT

With respect, I could moan that 90% of the tanks in the game "aren't worth the effort", and while a small number of them probably aren't, I cannot bemoan something just because I'm no good with it.

You asked for them and we’re happy to deliver!

 

Nobody asked for this. At least not enough people to claim the community was asking for this...

@ NoPoest406

 

No you can only hope that the Td you are grinding for is good designed and can compete on the battlefield/tier.

In the case of theTortoise I have my doubts.

 

The new line looks like it can compete no real weaknesses, small frame, high alpha.

The standard Russian/Chinese concept of a td you hit high and hard and there is a chance you bounce a shot. Enjoy.

SO HOW ARE THE NEW MAPS COMING ALONG?

 

 

Seriously WG, you're not going to miss me I know, but I'm tempted to try War Thunder just for some map variety. I don't think I will like it as much as WoT, but would it be really difficult for you to introduce one or two new maps each release (I mean for us regular random players?) or just bring back some old ones. I really don't care if they're not perfectly balanced and I do appreciate you have a reasonable number in rotation, but I don't care about tweaks to the game and HD models or even new tanks, all I ask is more map variety.

I totally agree with you. I am so irritated of the lack of variation in the maps. I why in H-LL do they do a copy of three maps and call them winter.......Hey i even want to play dragonridge with arty for variation. And i have not noticed any big diffrence the games i played regarden gameplay depending wich side i start on. As it is now, you loose a game with 15-0 regardless wich side you starts from. 

 

The only good thing that WG has done is the better map rotation, you do not have to play Erlenberg 9 battles out of 10 any more. But we need MORE MOOOOOOOOOOOOORE maps in rotation. Take them all back. PORT,,,,, i miss it immensly and all the others.

So you are bringing the cartoon aspect one step closer with a group of fictitious tanks that hardly anyone outside of China wants. 

Of course, people will buy them. Because in a game-shaping sense, this forum isn't worth a damn thing.

That is one extremely hard hitting tier 7 TD, Wargaming! Especially if you compare IT to all the other tier 7 TD's in the tech tree, turreted or casemates.

 

Seen a few previews on it and it seemed to perform at of near tier 8 performance levels. But one tier lower!

If that was the intention, so be it. But I cannot fail but notice the power creep in it's balancing vs it peers on tier 7. Regardless of it being turreted or a casemate TD.

 

As for all TD's up to tier 6 they seem imo very well balanced vs the same tier counterparts. Tier 8, well 560 alpha with such gun stats I don;t deem fitting on tier 8. Tier 8 already had enough high alpha content added over the past year+. Tier 9 and 10 seem more fitting though on their respective tiers.

  As WG can bring these vehicles (unasked for) from the Chinese servers, how about

bringing the Chieftain along as well. At least that is one tank that has been asked for.
