Is this a freaking joke? They changed probably the most unique T10 TD into another generic pos 750 alpha TD.

And the funniest part? 21.4s, yes TWENTY ONE POINT FOUR seconds reload for that amazing 750 alpha.

 

???

More startling is the 263 platform on tier 9.

It's one of the more unpopular TD lines in the game, I guess they want more people to grind it, but with those changes I don't see that happening...

I saw that and I'm already raging. Not only alpha change.

 

Look at the accuracy. 0.45

ZERO POINT FORTY-FIVE

0.45

Really?

Yep... but hey, they made the gun into a useless potatogun now, so it's balanced right? It won't be able to snipe, it has bad prem rounds, 2000 BASE DPM... g freaking g.

As long as those TDs can effectively brawl that change makes some sense. 

 

They should be applying this thinking to more lines IMO. 

 

DPM is an issue on all those tanks though from what I can see, as is hull traverse (21 deg/s on the tier 10).

 

Hopefully they are starting crap and will slowly buff from there.

Pretty much looks like just stopping the line at tier 9 at the moment. Surely the tier 10 will have a dpm buff before it hits live - Russian tanks aren't allowed to be this bad, are they?

maybe the armour is better? or perhaps the bloom? the accuracy and reload look terrible.. its obviously going to have something "epic" about it.. its Russian after all

Kinda was expecting that going by what changes they have planned of late. As the tier X sets it's self apart from the rest of the line in terms of consistency and style. That and it's the most unpopular tier X TD around. And as for the reload? Well it's not final stats ready for live, so no need to panic yet.

In my eyes. It won't matter if it has 215b gun handling, or E3 armour. That DPM, on a TD, is just pathetic. No other word for it.

Yeh DPM is off, premium rounds not so bothered, most tier 10 premiums rounds should be around 300 IMO, though it's odd they have left the tier 8 at 340 HEAT.....

 

Accuracy is fine if they allow the tank to have an in your face playstyle, Rasha meds should get this sort of accuracy IMO, so should most of the high alpha brawling heavies.  You can balance it out with really good soft stats.

 

Issue though is you need better traverse for that playstyle and better DPM.

true...

that said, if its type 5 or maus style armour (which it might well be) even without the DPM it would still be a rather hateful thing to fight.. atleast frontally.. the traverse on that is as bad as T95.. hmm... now that I think about.. it does look like a TX T95 only with far better speed....

Those stats... Way to make the line even worse. WTF really. Does someone from Gaijin hold gun to WG devs head to make them do absolutely horrible decisions?

Al I can ask is : WHY? WHY?

 

There was NO reason to change this line completely, the line consisted of vehicles with the same gameplay all the wya up the tech tree.  The T10 tank was fine, all the line needed was a couple of buffs.

This is a waste of time and all we get is more generic tanks in a line thats just the exact same tank but tiers higher.

 

 

I dont get why they are wastign time on stuff that is a non issue instead of actually balancign the game?

Why cant we have different tanks...

 

why all mediums are going to have turret armor and gun depression?

why changing this line to 750 alpha, another 750dmg...

FFS.

 

 

Rework, ok. they need some changing... su101m is meh... su101 with big gun is awful... small gun + HEAT, it is good.

but that is not balanced tank, you need a lot of premium ammo to make it work.

tier9 as i conucleded is also meh.

 

 

Buff them properly, change this or that, but dont make another clone tank line...

for 750 alpha, good armor, we have chinese TDs

and nobody plays those.

also, those tanks will be blind as bat... 350-370 from tier8-10... wtf...
...

no word.

This and the potato thrower of a gun they are changing this into...

 

I love my Yolowagon. Most enjoyable high tier TDs I have. Also, the pain of grinding through tier 9 to get it...I'd like this to be properly compensated.

This game is going down the drain.

First they are going to remove the Obj 416

Then this... crap..
