new t8 prem: Wargaming might have listened?

 

Machine gun port and commander hatch are weakspots, and its a non-op t8 prem.

 

Qudos to wg for this! Finally on the right path again

Wg did obviously not listen, if they did, all tanks in game would have weak spots, superheavies specifically.

Weakspots? While a nice throwback, I'd guess this is a last-ditch effort to not create a superheavy version of the Defender by adding weakspots - without nerfing other parameters too much.

 

I can imagine most new heavies will have some impact on the sale, simply because we know the Defender exists, and there'll be another one. VK100.01P is the prime choice for pubstomping anyway, and that thing is in the tech tree. The thing might be balanced with the small gun. Maybe.

Its a step in the right direction, not 100 steps or 1000 steps, it is one step in the right direction, and since we are so good at giving negative feedback, this stuff needs some positive feedback.

Had one on my team yesterday, as top tier it looked rather fearsome, it basically did the Defender thing and just "drove over" it's opposition, but it's nice to see that frontal weakspots might be on a comeback.
