What in the actual F wg, nobody asked for this change, the 263 is arguably the most unique t10 TD, and it is a good tank with balanced pros and cons, the grind for it is on the rough side but that makes it all the more rewarding.

 

WHY ARE YOU RUINING IT?, you're turning it into a half assed Jagdpanzer E100 with accuracy and dpm befitting an april fools joke.

 

I spent 125k free exp on this line, are you going to refund me all the money i spent on your lies?, because i sure as F'n hell didn't spend my time and money and effort on this TD line to get a subpar, gimped, ununique copy of a TD.

 

I know that this is just supertest, but let's be honest, everything you ruined on the supertest lately has made it to live agaibst the feedback of your playerbase, maybe you should start giving a crap hmm?

 

Update: a couple of weeks after mentioning that the changes were scrapped due to major community disagreement, they come our with this https://thearmoredpa...ssr-rebalances/

 

These supertesters are anything but super, and i know this sounds like a broken record by now but it's like WG is living in their own world where confirmation bias is the norm.

Its cash grab related, as of now most players don't want the 263 because its difficult to play in a line of difficult to play tanks. WG wants to make it accessible to more players therefore more will free xp it.

 

Turning a good accuracy and good DPM line into a poor accuracy and poor DPM line (with no weakspots (the tier 10 at least))... disgusting.

It's the worst cash grab i've ever seen, the tanks aren't even good, they're garbage even, dpm is terrible, accuracy is terrible, armor is good but if i wanted an armored tank with mediocre dpm i would get me a heavy tank.

Accuracy, and DPM is not important to your average tanker. Not having to think (cover weakspots, angle etc) and just yolo up and blap someone with 750 dmg, is important; its easy and fun.

 

 

Fact is if the tier 10 ends up in game as it is it wont matter who's driving it, because if your facing it frontally you will need gold to be able to deal with it.


 

So the cash grab is 2 fold;

1. make an easy to play arguably imba in regards to its armour layout tank = free xp conversion up the line.

2. Give it armour with no weakspots = force people to use even more premium ammo in game to be able to damage it frontally.

Yes but do we have a highly mobile derp with no frontal weakspots?

This new T10 is just another generic 750 alpha turret less TD.
Very close to both E3 and JgPz and the other object TD.

And terrible traverse so it can't fight in close quarter.

Disappointed with this to say the least.

 

Started grinding this line for the 263 which looked like a real unique and fun tank. Another 750 alpha copy/paste tank. No thank you.

You´re not the first one to make a thread about it, and at the very least the change seems to be hated by the general community - including me. The 263 is really unique the way it is now and pretty balanced at the same time. These changes are ruining the tier 10 for no apparent reason, completely change the key characteristics (low alpha but high dpm and decent gun handling) and introduce another generic, boring-[edited]750 alpha TD that doenst even have proper weakspots. Bah, I say.

That's a shame. Obj 263 used to be my 2nd favorite TD after JP2 back when I was still playing.

That´s the thing I think. There is nothing great about it. No one asked for this change and it won´t make anyone start this line so the change is pointless. Just another proof how far WG is removed from the actual players of their product.

If they want the line to be better, they should just buff some of the tanks on it and leave it at that.

Still think that this is an extremely retarded change and should not be a thing.
