After the japanese Type heavies the next monstrosity is going to hit the game: french 6-round autoloader with 2400 potential clip damage. Another broken tank with strong "motivation" to use premium ammo.

 

If WG does not stop this nonsense, you should exploit it. Team up in a platoon with 3 of these monsters and ruin the game for your opponents. If you already own the Foch 155 you're fine, all others have to grind and fill WG's coffers. When this grind cycle has topped the tank will be nerfed or replaced. We've seen it before.

There's already a 9 page thread about this, with the exact same video in the OP, a few threads down the page.

Great that people are more concerned about forum organization than monster tanks ...

But why make a new thread about it? It is the forum equivalent of spamming the D9 square in-game.

Because what can you do?

 

It's pretty powerful, it used to be UP for years, now let's see the statistics before claiming it OP.

 

Sure is a monster if it goes full gold, but I keep my judgment for later :girl:

So, 6 clip magazine that does 400 alpha at every 2 seconds.... on a Foch, that everyone knows were to hit but if your gun only does 250" pen you know you really will need

a very carefull aim time to make it count...  because that top bar weakspot can be troiling at times if you dont hit it properly

 

and while your trying to aim and not miss its weakspot, he allready shot you 3 times... 

 

I do not like non turreted tank destroyers, its not my favourite gameplay style, but this thing is absurd,  its not a 3 clip magazine of 750 alpha, spread by 5 seconds

its a 6 clip of 400... that each 2 seconds blasts away any deep injuried tank...

 

it a foch 50 b remais alive till the very last moments of a battle becomes a serious contender for kolobanov medals... and it can do it in less than 10 seconds...

Yeah the pen is very low for a td, it's an AMX 50 B with no turret but 2 extra shells in clip to compensate.

Not nearly as broken as the wf auf e100 which had one of the best guns in the game and a turret to go with the massive clip damage.

And part of the problem is that they have balanced the tank around a parameter that people can just overcome by pressing the "2" key. 

 

WG can't have the game on the one hand with pay to win elements and on the other hand taken seriously in e-spots. For the latter to happen, WG need to make premium rounds a situational tactical choice rather than a no-brainer and make an effort to properly balance all tank rather than having obvious xp sinks and OP premiums.

i would say its stupid to waste gold ammunition on a foch 50 B... 

 

its an autoloader, you can shot 6 times in 10 seconds, all its required is that you are in a good position and you caught your enemy with its panths down...

it can even be a Maus, that was stupid enough to not angle the hull and with that pen, you can damage its lower plate, or even the turret if your lucky with RNG.

 

but i agree the fact they are dumbing down the game alloiwing every gold ammunition to solve any lack of knoledge or skill as one of the biggest problems in this game...

they want WOT to be more opened to casual weekend players

Boohoo. How about you take out the current tier 10 Foch and tell about that experience with the same passion?

It's a crap now, god forbid it can be any competitive.

Same as Maus was before buff.

Same as E5 was before buff.

I love it when people cry this much after something gets buffed, but don't say a word when some tanks are absolutely horrid.

Best piece of advice I have ever seen in this BB since I started using it. But people go "mimimimi game balance this, nerf that, remove arty mimimimimi" instead of STFU and play the game or quit.
