I don't know but I find it suspicious that the Russian tanks keep getting HEAT ammo at almost every tier. Ammo that can pen almost everything regardless of the armor value.

 

Plus the OP russian tanks at T8 and higher.

 

WG, is  it because you have to please your Russian audiance? Because Russian armor during WWII was crap.

 

WG limit the amount of premium ammo you can take in to battle, this will make the game much more balanced, instead of having all these stat padders spamming premium ammo

Kinda like the Type 4/5 Heavys where the guns only have 75MM pen, yet every shot no matter where it hits or on what tank or TD just rips you apart over & over again. I didn't think it was possible to deal 900hp damage, damage 3 modules & kill/injure 3 crew members from one shot. But, this is WG after all.

Ok, let's take one of the most popular lines in the game, IS-7. How many tanks have HEAT on that line? None. Ok, 1/2 if you count the KV-1 and KV-1S with the derp gun. 

 

What about the IS-4 line? Same but with no KV-1S. 

 

Mediums get HEAT at tiers 9+. Meanwhile the Japanese meds get HEAT from tier 8+...hmmmmm, not really seeing your point here to be honest.

Don't T-10, ST-I and IS-4 get 340 HEAT?

75% of tanks played German. Wehraboo spotted.

And just because it's HEAT doesn't automatically mean that it "can pen almost everything" how about you learn some game mechanics before you spew any more nonsense.

I think most can understand why there is a Russian bias on the Russian server as maybe they will not see it as imbalance.
On the EU server the HEAT on the T9s and lower is just completely out of balance with many others using APCR, it should be APCR and balanced.
I just can not see why they enforce the same Russian imbalance on the EU server... :confused:

Play tanks with spaced armor then if you see it as an issue. My T26E4 don't mind them when they try to go for my lower plate with a mile long gap on it to make the heat beam useless. Or the tracks eat it. Tho.. it's not 100% fool proof.
