So about the AMX 30 B

After the release of the 9.20 patchnotes i do indeed feel a little un-pleased since i read about the planned changes to the AMX 30 B which in my opinion did not need any changes as i were. The acc the realoadtime and the whole playstyle (atleast my playstyle) of the tank were fantastic a fine and mobile sniper capable of doing sustained fire on the opponents. All this comes to at close in (my book) since they are changing the acc from 0.28 (that is what it tells me ingame) to 0.36 and to add insult to injury they decided that the speed of the standart rounds were too "high". 

yay it got a buff on the reloadtime, but at a cost. you might argue that it gets armor on the capola, well it is only in the front of the capola not the sides or back, THE FRONT and besides that it gets one more degree in gun-depression. Well it does not help since when you are using that gun depression the opponent can still see your capola (like 50% of it) still the same large hunk-of-junk on the turret. Some might think that it can be a good in a 1v1, but it still has 35 mm on the front plating and a well placed shot with HE will take it out in about 3-4 shots.

Yeah the changes to the 30b are a bit odd. Does it need some attention in the first place? Probably yes, but its hard to know if these changes are a buff or a nerf!

Love my AMX 30 atm, Although even how it is with accuracy at the moment the gun seems to miss fully aimed shots on enemy sides 50% of the time.. And now since they are nerfing the accuracy i dread to think about it..

I bought the amx 30 because of the accuracy... 

I don't need the extra armor, I really want to keep the accuracy! Why does WG have to completely change the playstyle of the tank?

Well I got the AMX 30 B since i did indeed HATE the BC 25T (just in general). So that is when i got the AMX 30 B and to no suprise i loved it out of the box even with 50% crew it still were a good tank and i dread the comming changes to it :(

I would call it a buff. Even though the pen changes are absolutely pathetic in today's superheavy meta, the buffs make up for it. I mean, you literally have Tortoise DPM (without improved equipment and with directives you can get 6.00s reload - 3900 DPM) on a fast, versatile T10 med.

I've played it extensively on the CT and am going to grind it. The TVP pen is more than made up for with the insane DPM (the 430 can't even catch up to it) and RU med gun handling.

That is true but the changes to the dispersion is as you may call it "meaningless" and it will force the players who already has it have to adapt. But the thing you would have to adapt to know is you will hit way less shots on the mid-long range shots and therefor have to go "upclose and personal". This tank is not a brawler and it will never be one (my opinion) with the pathetic front armor it can bearly take any shots from any tanks from tier 8 to 10. But I guess we will have to see if it stays in my garage after the next patch. It is like they want it to play like a obj-430

re-skin (exept the armor) instead of a "meta breaker" as it is now.

ps: I do consider this as a nerf for an already hard to play tank.
