First thing checked on the test server - Badger has unpenetrable armor at the front, only countered by 330-400+ mm of penetration. Even the lower plate isn't a weak spot since it has 260+ mm of penetration. No way to fight this from the front unless, as usual, you spend 8x more credits to become a god and penetrate everything (even with that you need to aim and the lower plate or at the "boobs" and be lucky to penetrate). 

 

Nothing else to say. Wargaming keeps making things ridiculous like no tomorrow.

Second thing I checked. New Tier 8 French Heavy - no armor. Huge turret with huge tumors. Hull is junk. "Heavy tank". Not complaining since I won't go though any of the french heavy lines in the near future.

 

Tier 9 and 10 are a different thing. Both have insane hull and turret frontal armor with the only weak point beeing the 2 tiny cupolas at the top and the corners of the hull when angling at 45º / sidescraping. Lower plater is, again, no weakspot. Keep doing it.

Uninstalled the test server. With all this russians spamming premium rounds all the way in from the start to the end how can one "test" anything? I know, the badges is OP, needs to be shot at with premium rounds. Somehow all the premium rounds shot at me are penetration. All the ones I tried to shoot at them are not. Funny. Maybe my Badger is not Russian. 

 

But lets be honest. How can Anyone test anything when everyone starts the battle with full premium rounds slot binded on the 1 key? Is this a way to "test" things to the limit or is this a playground for everyone waste premium rounds without spending their own credits by doing so? New meta?

Yea i agree, I dont know why but I love the history and even as a premium tank I would love to own them 

 

cavalry charge against tanks was german propaganda, they just defended a position, dismounted and using AT rifles capable to pen and damage german tanks.Poland has some tanks and armoured cars, but, in the game, they have place from tier 1 to 5, nothing more. and they have a project for PL-800 i think, but this is a tank for another tank game

Many of the armour changes in patch 9.21 is just stupid and another way of forcing premium ammo in order to make WG more money.

T28 will get 255mm+ of frontal armour, no weakspots at all.
Meaning, to be able to pen him frontally with a T8, load premium ammo, and it isn't a problem. T7 tanks like BP can't do crapagainst this new T28, so I'd he meets one, he is literally useless and can be ignored by the T28 while the BP player himself can just aswell go afk.

The new AT remodels follow same pattern. No frontal weakspots and handily pennable by same tiered premium ammo while withstanding same tiered regular ammo with no problem.
Especially the AT-8.

These are just completely stupid changes.
The result is an ever increasing usage, and need, of premium ammo if you want to be able to damage your opponents.
A change that is terrible for the gameplay.
Combine this with WGs nlater maps, like Paris, where flanking is literally impossible. You have situation where you, to be able to have an influence, either play a frontally well armoured tank and shoot premium ammo. Or play a Japanese heavy derp tank.
Just like T95 is currently one of the most OP tanks in the game, soon the T28 will join.

 

The new French heavies are designed the same way, weak to premium Penetration, impenetrable by standard penetration and without frontal weakspots.

The frenchies also have this very 'money for WG'-bringing gun.

The 120mm gun has pretty bad standard pen, 218, but comes with a 325 premium Penetration round. Because why the [edited]not. It is only weird that the premium shell doesn't make more damage aswell.


The meta of WOT is becoming a meta of, play a heavily armoured tank, shoot premium ammo or GTFO.

Credit wise, this is just another step in the p2w direction WG had been going on for the last year or so.
Since playing this game without premium account and premium tanks are simply not sustainable credit wise anymore.

So don't [edited]release this piece of crappatch.
Fire Murazor since he is doing a terrible job as head of balancing, and is only enforcing his dream of impenetrable heavy armoured tanks, because he got wrecked to many times by enemies shooting weakspots like the useless noon he is. Hire a guy to be head that actually is non-biased towards a certain type of meta and tank.

Note: WG have lost players since Murazor became head of development, over last year.

They didnt fight with cavalry its just a myth, if anything they did use the horses to transport cannons and guns which could penetrate tanks.

It's kinda sad that the best possible patch to end the year would be one that reversed all the changes done in previous patches this year...

I hate the new crew stun thing, if love to get hit and die rather than slow the crew down.

The best choice would have been to remove arty from the game. Second best would have been to limit their number to max 1. Giving them an accuracy boost was very, very annoying and they still hurt plenty.

That plus the splash radius increase as a complete joke. One shells splashes the ground 4m away, deals 500dmg and. Splash damage deals almost the same or higer damage than a direct hit.

RIP lightly armored warcraft. When I play in my not superheavy spall-lined sumo fighters, but in German Waffles or such, I'd rather camp and not get spotted because I know arty is no more aiming for heavy tanks because it takes at best 200-300 damage per shot so what's the point in hitting them when you can target TD's and mediums of which you take average 500-600hp? Best thing is, you don't really have to hit them. You could splash them for the same amount of damage, if not more, than a direct hit on a heavy.

 

Other than arty and stupid stun, I'm really enjoying the game and the patch seems okay.
