With the way heavy over buffs go and the time it's been ignored for you may as well break the E5 again. It looks so much nicer to. Please wg? :girl:

Removing the MG tumor would require nerfing the LFP to cheesecake levels. Otherwise it would be the good old OP E5 it used to be in the past.

 

however, removing the MG tumor and nerfing the LFP would just make it an american SConq, killing variety once again.

Yeah, let's make all the heavy tanks OP as fak, add a few OP Russian mediums to it and everybody else can go fak them self.

Why balance tanks when you can make them overpowered so Steve the IS-7 driver can stand sideways to the enemy without ever worrying about taking any damage.

Eeeeeeeeeh, I wish they'd employ grown-ups in the balance department and not these 8 year old snotty noses working there now.

WG's balance department is the biggest joke ever. They could not balance even their own bowel movement, never mind the game it self.

Well you gotta remember that Blitz is a 7 vs 7. And the maps are way smaller. Most fights are done in 2-3 min on even tier X. So as a HT, you will get 100% of their focus, then that cupola really don't help. That and pen, alpha, armor and hit points is different on most tanks due to the smaller maps and team size. Matilda IV does 86 pen on a low roll. Not an average roll to name one. So most tanks on blitz could even pen the old E5 cupola with ease with normal ammo. Thus it's even more useless there vs on PC.

I’ve played a bit of Blitz, it’s very slow paced and hitting weak spots is much easier.

Lol the LFP is already cheesecake level for T9+ as long as you know where to aim, even T8 with 220 pen guns can pen it when aiming properly... Gun stats are average these days considering the competition and so is the mobility when considering the overall armor. They could easily remove the cupola while keeping everything as it is and it would still only be above average. Nowhere near the new powercreep level.

I think E5's mg turret should be a bit smaller, but it should stay as-is. Maybe like 25% smaller?

Yes, but in general, the Blitz team has done a much better job balancing the game.

The differences between tiers are much smaller which means that there is not as big gap between one tier and the one above/below as on PC.

 

Also, they are considering to do the same change to the E4 too.

Against some of the newer tier 10 arrivals, would the good old OP E5 really even be that OP? :rolleyes:

Considering that it wasn't OP to begin with, the answer is no.

 

Yes, I still have performance curves somewhere on my drive. Maus was OP yet got buffed, E5 was balanced but got nerfed. WG's balancing at it's finest.

Reducing the cupola to M48A5 Patton levels would be fine, with like 200mm effective armour.
