Kinda hoping we can buy the M41 blackdog. (i want a higher tier premium Light tank, and the highest one you can normally buy is the Type 64)

So you are saying you nerffed the Maus so much that a weak chinese version of IS 7 is beating the "bunny" out of it?

Send the video to the "balance" department as well. WZ is simply too good in the current game meta. It is not even situational. It is mobile, has really high dpm and on top of that it has an armor.

Please WG tell us how this tank was "balanced"?

More like the tank that brings the sandbox server users to their knees if you ask me.

Yes, it was the tank and not the heat spam, right?

I have no Maus or IS7 and play mostly US T110E5. And at the moment both IS7 and the WS is much more powerful. Faster, better armored for most part and the WS also have higher DPM. I could live with the fact that the T110E5 is slower and such. But why in gods name did they weakened the cupola on it knowing these 2 new/upgraded beasts arrived. And also for that matter against beast like Maus. With its insane armor and gun. The US heavy tier 10 is beginning to be really UP compared. 

 

WG is working on re balances. Well do it right and focus on all of the same tier and class at the same time. What is each tanks strength and weakness and dont let any of them drop out of usefulness. I almost rather play the M48 Patton as its up to the task now with better armored turret with small cupola. IS7 or WS only showing turret in a fight have no such big weakness as T110E5 cupola.

A pure joke again...its allways the same..makeing a tank tree that nobody cared about OP.

Also this tank is just a copycat of a russian design and it was far from great..but in WG fantasy world it is one of the best ofc..

They did it way back with the "Batchat" that everyone at the end went around in spamkilling game after game until they had to nerf it hard.

Same fate is coming to this tank but first all gamers have to waste alot of gold/xp etc its the usal WG cycle. 

Alot of tanks is crap, allmost unplayable due to the constant upgrade of guns/ammo/ armour etc + the big problem with "HE" spamm

Take the E100 its a joke tank nowdays all you do is roll out and get the chicks of the turret spammed with high pen rounds until you die.

There is no way you can play it smart if you hulldown in a good pos the turret chicks gets spammed anyway due to the high pen.

All you can do is try to place the turret sideways, but as soon as you aim you insta die. 

Take them "japs" tanks Type 4-5 a big house that has flat armour and spamms "HE" that hits every time + WG fantasy armour..its a tank made purely to make gamers waste silver.

Playing them fantasy tanks + "haxs" that make sure you dont have to aim is ruining this game and WG does zero about it..

Then we have the plutoon gaming that tot mess up MM, good players use this alot as it is allmost 100% win = good stats.

All them games ending 15-1 with a plutoon of tier X "pro" is just so boring as game was over before it started.. 

WG needs to lock down this game from "haxs" and stop living in a fantasy world this game have lost alot of soul lately​.

Wonder when the starwars tank with laser beam is coming and pardon my bad english.

Maybe not enough players are yet aware of the strength of the 5A and thus the video. So more players will go for it, before it's nerfed?

​Well you forgot that it has the speed to make up for that...in the hands of a skilled player it will be a hard to hit.

Its easy to see a wolfpack of these tot ripping apart a flank just as the T59 did way back..

Compere it to T110E5​ that is slow and has that "superbig" cupola thats even a noob without "autoaim" will hit.

Ofc is will take some time before WG pulls the brake as they need to earn some dollars first.

and why on earth you comapre it to e5? is-7 got buffed speed , almost same now as wz, and is7 got shitload of upper plate armour and no stupid cupolas. that's what is op .

The fact is that this game as it is today is totaly unbalanced...

Just take the IS7 and sidescrape it and do the same with alot of other X heavies "non updated" tanks..

Its just a pure joke as is will block like 200% more incoming damage an the rest will die due to high pen rounds.

Also playing tier 8 after patch is damn hard it will probably make you hit rock bottom with alot of them 15-1 games.

Why...well as soon as them noobs in tier X above you dies the games end fast and with a pen of 200+ you will struggle to hit.

At the end of the day you will earn less silver as you need more pen faceing tier 9-10.

So if you want to be able to "carry a game" then you need to walk the road of the tanks updated with fewer weakspott as the IS7 etc.

There is a handfull tanks that have the uperhand at its tier..and this is ofc a total failure in the aspect of having a good balanced game.

 

This site is good just choose a tank and see it in 3d and you will laugh hard at many tanks..wondering what they been smoking at WG office.

As you see with E100 everything above 270 will penetrate the front turret = gg tank

https://tanks.gg/tank/e-100/model

Useing autoaim hax will ofc improve acc/pen further.. but hopefully WG will try to fix this in a couple of years.

ha ha well E5 got updated then they stopped smoking.. and nerfed it back to crap, but they did not do the same to IS7...wierd

E5 has good armour but with all the haxs out there you cant play in a tank with weakspotts..its just plain truth..

WG does not calculate with the "haxs" factor so in their testing ground the tank is ok...but in real game its a sitting duck..its like playing chess against a computer on max level.. 

So short story play tanks that have no crap on the turret and good sloped armour i myself need to play this way as im been playing tanks for fun..but fun is no more.

In my experience this tank is not that good .

This looks indeed like some advertisement , thats ment to make players spend money \ gold on this tech tree .

Sure i would have some better stats with it if i would use gold ammo , but for me that makes it way to expensive to play .

The sloped frontal armor all in all i find unreliable .

In this tank u have like no chance to do block mission or ht 15 mission -- missions u can do with maus .

The good stats this tank may have -- i think its because relatively more better players that own this tank compaired to other more popular tier 10 tanks , that are more owned also by lesser rated players .
