Yay!

Not actually that shabby and that map looks interesting as well.

 

What I wonder though is: Will the Maus and Type4/5 be brought back down to normal levels with weakspots that are viable for same tier standard ammo, or will they hold their "weakspots" that have more flat armour than standard ammo has pen? You know, properly balancing the game and such......

So for T10 maximum armour thickness on a weakspot ~230/240mm and for the T9 maximum thickness on a weakspot ~210/220mm.

People should stop complaining about the Edited lack of weakspots. Look at the SuperPershing, it's armour is completely useless because I pen those things everytime frontally because of the obvious weakspots. Now consider giving the tanks who give most things up (like speed) to gain a ton of armour. Giving them easy to pen weakspots makes the armour go from good to completely useless because in this meta you can't hide weakspots all day of the week.

 

I'd rather see the premium HE get removed from the Jap Heavys and some dpm reduction on the Maus than giving them weakspots. (and no I do not own any of those two, I only have experience with the Type 4)

 

Making armour useless is not balancing these vehicles out.

It's nice that you're working on the game, but how about fixing all the crap you Fed up since the last few updates first!!! Like the friends/contacts and clan chat channel not working!!! The MM that makes it impossible to play anything that isn't tier 9-10 or you're just bottom tier all the time! Balance the P2W ammo of Type 4&5 heavy! Balance the VK100.01P (commander cupola, lower plate) and Obj. 252 (lower plate) so at least other tier 8 HT can pen it without using gold! 

Even with the new map I don't think I'll play grand battles. Maybe if I could choose to join them and not getting randomly into them.

I want something in the next version:a buff on T34. Make him a much better frontal armour and keep the gun like now. Or improve the gun accuracy, to make him sniper, and keep the current armour. Or give him only tier VIII battles. Or...remove the tank from game and give my money back. I have bought from premium shop only this tank and i regret. And fix the bugs, i dont want to hearmusic if i put music on mute

T34 is a situational tank like many others tanks. Sometimes you done a lot of damage sometimes you die.

T 34 is insane hull down and have big alpha and big pen. It is good as it is.

Yesterday one T 34 pen me frontally with my T10 twice with no problem with over 400 damage each time.

Only one thing torment me..Spend a real money (gold) to put inscriptions and emblems on my FV 183 (all different ones) because i like that tank and 183 mm gun. Now, after new coming patch those inscriptions will be one new tank some 10 tier turtle whit gun for ants.. Why i cant keep those emblems on tank where i put it? If not nothing, u can send them in depot so have choices where we want put them.

Keep dreaming, they wont do anything. Yes, I think its silly and I also will never give up with my (likely useless) efforts of proposing Type 4/5 reworks. However, as long as the current balance team stays unchanged, I wouldn't expect those to get fixed.

There is a massive difference with something that is completely filled with overly many weakspots (like Super Pershing) and something that is pennable to same tier AP when exposed and unangled. Look at the AMX M4 49 Liberte, it has a clear weakspot but it still can bounce a crapton of shots. Or look at the E100, which's LFP is pennable to same tier heavies and it has other options like the "police bar" and the turret ring. And even then, E 100's armor can work, and E 100 has bigger problem with getting HEAT spammed to the turret than getting penned by weakspots. If premium ammo didnt exist, E 100 would be ridicuously bouncy when used right, despite having 3 weakspots.

 

Maus needs the turret to be brought down to levels it was and LFP nerfed slightly. Even then, it would be extremely armored (even without armor buffs it blocked more shots than most tanks in the game). Type 5's armor layout needs a complete overhaul.

 

They should remove the derps on Type 4/5 or at very least remove the premium HE, and then buff the 14 cm AP gun.

Exact what we need, more tanks for less players. Game is being more customized for heavy tank users who are the worst players in the game btw.

Heat of tiers 9, love type 4 and 5 but when you are tier 8 and need to face them frontally is not fun. With is3 couldn't pen cupolla of them.

A good player in a Superpershing can do a lot in a match, a bad one shows his weakspots at the wrong time and swiftly dies, that is how it should be.

That being said the SuperPershing maybe has too many weakspots where the Maus/Type5 have none at all. A weakspot is an area that can be penned reliably by guns of the same tier and one tier below using standard ammo.

 

If a Maus/Type5 is not angled, you *SHOULD* be able to pen it through weakspots every single time because the tank is not played right.

Currently even flat on these weakspots have more armour than same tier tanks have penetration, in other words these tanks are compensating for a bad playstyle entirely.

try to play 95% of battles against tier 10,and do credits , in a plain map. [edited]off. And try to shoot over 100m and see how many hits you miss. And try to fight 1 vs 1 against a cromwell in open field, T34 has nochances to win

So it's safe to use the free exp to get the FV215 183? I don't want to use my hard earned exp and then you "great" company to pull some Rubicon-move on me!
