Hello WG & my beloved WOT community

Problems with slow tanks:
1. They can't position themselves, especially heavy tanks. 
2. They can't keep up with the rest of the team
3. Easy targets

Reason?
1. Increased number of light tanks

2. Increased number of fast tanks in the past few years
3. Increased rate of fire of artillery

Solution?
Simple. Increase the top speed limit for the slowest tanks. The Japanese HT line for example.
Sure, they have some armor, which is easily penetrated with gold, and what you have left is simply a slow tank that can't keep up or use it's armor effectively.

WG, please consider making some changes

Yes, personally I'm hoping to see the E*edit5 going at least 50km/h by Christmas.

What would you nerf in them? Guns? Armour? Both? They are slow for a reason...

Nerf? The tanks are becoming faster and faster, so your slow tanks are getting nerfed with every patch.

Their speed was OK years ago, not today.

Simple. 

I like how those players who obviously have no single clue about the things they are talking about always call their nonsensical balancing suggestions "simple"...

 

But yes. Poor heavy tanks. They get totally neglected by the meta.

How about no.

Do you recognize this? It's how tanks have been designed before they had engines that were powerful enough but they still have to adapt their designs because power is limited. There has to be a weakness with all that armor protection and often the big gun that comes along with it.

WOW! You do realize that slow tanks become more & more redundant as you introduce faster & faster tanks??? Why is that hard to understand?

It is threads like this that remind me that children play this game and that expectations should be adjusted accordingly.

I'll grant you that, if you don't mind my T95 gets T-50-2 mobility.

So you think that slow tanks should remain slow while new tanks become faster & faster? No one sees a problem here?

Good job community, helpful as always. You impress me with your comments and intelligence.

Being slow is often an excuse. Funny that i mostly end up front when i am driving a slower tank than the rest of the team...

Yes, you magically appear in front of me. Or no, I drive my 113 in first gear. Yea, that's the problem...

Increased number of fast tanks?? My Lights were speed-nerfed to snail-speed. My Chaffee etc havent been touched in months. My Bulldog has 170 alpha vs 1500hp HTs or brawling TDs, who are mostly the 'slow tanks' you refer to. Whatever speed is left I need to try and flank your heavy @$$ (on mostly city maps) so I can try and put in 9(!) penetrating shots into your armour whilst evading your derpy 1-2 shot gun.

 

Speed buff to slow (Heavy) tanks? No thanks.

Good job community, helpful as always. You impress me with your comments and intelligence.

It would help if you would post some more examples.

The only tanks you mentioned are the Japanese heavies - which would become even more unbalanced or/and OP if they were faster. Those are pretty much the last tanks in the entire game that I would like to get buffed like that.

 

btw: You look like you are a bit older than 12, so you might want to stop with the "No, I'm not stupid, you are stupid!!1"-logic.

OMG THOSE DANGEROUS LIGHT TANKS. 

 

Are you insane? Like seriously do you have a diagnosed condition? Type5 and many jap heavies OVERPERFORM by a large margin and you want to buff their speed? All lights underperform for players of all skill levels, all superheavies overperform.

 

Also there is no increase in the number of fast tanks in recent years. Kranvagn is average speed. Type5 is new, PZVII is new, new french heavy line wont be fast. new china TD line is slow. So what are you talking about?

Speed buff HTs? No thanks.

 

Do I even comment on this? Why do I even try at all...

No they don't since most maps are corridor and bigger speed means nothing when you have to face armored tanks frontally. "Why is that hard to understand?"

I have no idea why you try, cause if this "suggestion" is the best you can come up with it's a waste of your time.
