Hello everyone.

In last few patches we can see that WG is adjusting the stats of many tanks, mainly buffing them. That includes premium tanks. It's all nice, but seeing that soviet premium medium tanks at tier 8 are getting buffed again I'd like to ask if WG is planning to do anything with those of premium medium tanks that are really underperforming?


I don't want to start another conversation about tanks with prefferable MM (like IS-6, KV-5, 112 etc.) because WG has already stated that they're planning to rework them so we just need to be patient and see what will be done about them. Instead I would like to know if WG is planning to do anything about Panther 8.8 which, if you take a look at the screenshot below, is underperforming like no other premium medium tank at tier 8 (apart from those with small data set which there is no point to take into account).



I know that this tank already had some buffs in the past but let's be honest - before the buff it was abysmal and now it's "just" very bad. First of all this tank should never be given normal MM. I'd like to know if WG is planning anything about this tank. Maybe players have any good suggestions?

It used to have 2 plates of spaced armor on the UFP, the second one was removed making the armor weaker, and it's one of the oldest premiums, so pretty much everyone knows where to shoot it, 

the fact that it's full of weakspots doesn't help either, it's mediocre at best.

But, hey let's give 20 p/w ratio on the t54 mod1, because it really needs more buffs.

In traditional WG fashion the look at the statistics backwards, they seem to think that better a tank performs the more buffs it needs, so yes lets all rejoice for the upcoming 9.22 buffs to the T-44-100 and our new speed demon the T-54 Proto. 


Even after a bottle of vodka I would be able to balance tanks better than this....
