We can all rejoice now that Wargaming is leaving a unique and interesting TD line intact rather than make it another boring 750dmg heavily armoured monstrosity this game could do without.

 

Block Quote

 

According to Milos Jerabek (development director) and his yesterday stream, changes in the Object 263 line are cancelled for now. Or at least removing/downtiering 263 itself is out of question, since Object 268 v4 appeared to be an unsuitable replacement.

 

 

I'm glad for this because the 263 is unlike any other TD in the game, which is good, a tank you would want to play and something refreshing.

 

===========

 

Here is an idea Wargaming, free of charge:

Maybe *NEXT* time before you decide to completely reshuffle lines and already put modellers/texture artists on it wasting their time, maybe ask the community first if they *want* this or not in their game?......It would save you a lot of wasted time and energy....

Good news, still if I know WG correctly they'll find some other way of nestling in that new tier 10 in some line anyhow, but at least the 263 is safe then.

They can always make it a sidegrade from the SU-122-54?

Don't get me wrong, they could have it as an alternative T10 in the same line, that is not the problem and never was. The problem was them removing the 263, moving it to tier 9 and then adding that slow cumbersome over-armoured "problem to game balancing" in it's place.

I just grinded 263, and played 2 random games.


Tank is fantastic. Unique.

I have no idea why would they change it.
Unique, balanced, fun tier10 tank, and they wanted to ruin it.

good news.

Yes true, I do however feel that I wouldn't want to see 268 v4 in the game regardless, not that I currently play much higher tiers than 7, but still.

Yeah, just a slow @ss TD with hugely overbuffed frontal armour that instead of skill takes gold-ammo to shoot though. Basically something this game really doesn't need at this point in time.

Good news indeed. I don't even have the 263 but I do appreciate that unique tanks like the Obj. 263 shouldn't be marginalised in WG's ever increasing push to make everything a clone of everything else.

Unsuitable replacement? So it has nothing to do with the rage storm the NA, EU and RU forums have seen since it's announcement? It just did not "work". Right.

 

Then again, they did not say they had abandoned the idea completely. Just that they left it for now.

Made you post more accurate. WG don't give a monkey's uncle what EU or NA think.

I am grinding that line, then. Nice! At least something gets noticed by Wargaming :)

If only we complain about it? Then no, as WG don't call the EU server a "drama queen" for nothing. If we complain on the same thing RU does at the same time, then they change their mind even faster then most cases that only RU whines about.

Right, let's go ask the not united angry mob if they wish to discuss matters peacefully.

Seem the communities were rather unanimous about this one actually hence why it's cancelled....

You already know what the outcome would be..

It's the same as asking if Type 4/5 should be nerfed. The players who play them would cry endless tears and the nerf would not be there. I'd rather see 263 removed.

 

I hate to play against them. For example I play my Conqueror a long time ago and some 263 guy, comes yoloing me and facehugs me. I couldn't even pen him on front with premium ammo even at the lfp. One of my most hated tanks.

You could say, that I should avoid them, but that means that others from my team will have to face him.
