seriously what's the point of superheavy tanks in this game if they can be obliterated by gold spammers? either thicken them up or remove them completely from the game. also it would make very much sense to reduce superheavy firepower, but thicken the armor

yes i'd like to trade more armor for less firepower and dont talk to me like i'm an idiot

 

superheavies role is to hold like a fort, so it makes sense to buff the armor because of all the gold spam. it is impossible to angle any superheavy against gold on most of the maps so what exactly is its role? no wonder most of the superheavies now struggle to play sniper roles with their **** dispersion because only at distance they can use their armor

On a more serious note...how much do you want it buffed? Cuz i still have 375 apcr on my e3 and 420 heat on my jageroo...i don't think you want actual kranvagn turret armour all over the place...or...do you?

it absolutely makes sense that TDs are superheavies worst enemy

 

just a slight buff so that you need more than 270 pen to pen it when armor is used properly. now almost every tank can pen superheavy without bothering to flank. just press 2 for ownage

 

does it make sense to you that a single strv is harder to pass by than superheavy?

Aren't superheavies already broken as they are? what do you want? to be the king of the hill while 15 tonks fire at you and bounce? you want 1 million steel wall medals? Type 5, Maus and others are impervious to many gold shells from lower tiers already. and you want a buff??

 

seriously i have read a lot of crap on the forums.. but this takes the cake, the icing and the table and the whole faking party with it.. it is people like you in the balance department that fucked up the whole armor balance making everyone shoot gold now..

 

im out of this thread...

270 pen when armour used properly. It's like that already, or even better.

flank? AHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHA

Flank where? Move from one corridor occupied by a superheavy to the next corridor occupied by another superheavy?

In case you missed it...WoT changed the name from World of Tanks to World of Corridors.

Also...If you play...sumo derptarded tanks...Just so you know...for maus, E100, etc...i try to use standard...if I have no other choice i shoot gold...but when i see a sumo tank...it doesn't matter even if I shoot his rear...I'll instantly smash that "2" key only for the sheer joy of blasting gold rounds through sumo tanks, because they deserve them.

about 260 for maus turret cheek, and about the same for type front. with more accurate pen rng, that would be even more easy to pen

yes i want 1mil steel walls but not to abuse high armor with high alpha at the same time. if someone wants to be pain in the *** blocker, let him be imho. i'm saying that if the armor is the only strength of superheavy, it's been nullified by the mass use of gold by every tank. 

 

if you are stubborn enough to try to pen a well fortified tank you know you cant pen for 3 mins, not knowing where else to go, then it renders you pretty useless for the team. like I said, if it's that you need to flank strv or badger in example, that are very agile and deadly, why is it not ok that you NEED to flank a superheavy to defeat it?

 

also MM can (and i think it should) be tweaked not to allow more than 3 superheavies, like it has now limited the arties

Against Maus prem shell with 311 pen. No place to penetrate in the whole tank. Highlighted the weakest spot.

Played a few games in E100 the other day... it's still pretty good. 750 alpha to the face and a decent DPM. Enough gold pen to butter most tanks you meets.

That is the live mode... So that is the optimum angle. 

 

// As you can see from that live mode pic, against gold the Maus is still unpenetrable. And you want to buff the armour?

Gold ammo should not pen super heavies. There should be DU ammo for that.

I like my E100 so much and ability to hit targets with high chance even when not fully aimed (At least in my experience). Literally like this, angle turret while reloading and then point at enemy for a second, fire and then angle back for reloading (mine is very sucessful at that) and I bounced many gold shells like that (cause they hit side of my turret at autobounce angle).

nope, it's like that with maus AP, it's very much different image with APCR comparison
