Today played few games and met new supertank OBJ257. As i noticed, it is impossible to penetrate with 8 tier tanks any spot on side of the tank hull with 223 mm ap or 261mm pen apcr. This tank alone managed to survive and kill obj416, panther 2, vk100, tiger2, amx 13105, while being in 1 place and exposing its side to enemy. This tank is to OP or all our team was to dumb to kill 1 tank. Player had 49% win rate in t10 and 69% win rate in obj257. I think it says all.

Not one to be commenting too much on patch day but from the streams I've been watching the 257 and the new 268 do seem somewhat unbalanced. They seem intended to be used as a prem ammo sink from what I can see.

Not so, its a shitty slow sluggish tang. Loooong reload. Easy to pen with m103 - side armor can be penned almost all the time. Out cirkeled by all other tanks (apary from super heavies).

Sidescraping with this thing against 268 4... Nope :) And he shot regular ammo. Didnt matter how i angled it. Perhaps i should have tried reverse sidescraping

I wonder how many games this player managed to play in his Obj 257 in the... Four or so hours the patch had been live at the time of OP's post to have any significance as far as winrate is concerned. My Obj 257 has 100% winrate and over 3k average damage, but then I only played one game in it so far, full tier 9 battle with a total of 19 257's in it, 10 on our team 9 in the opposing.

Grinding the last few XP on my BC 12t is going to be fun these next few days.

Played two games in it, it does seem a bit too strong when it comes to taking abuse. The gun is pretty serviceable for something that can handle getting slapped around like that as well. Might be just because people don't know where to shoot it though.

 

I'll hold off my final verdict until it's out a bit longer, but for now it seems really strong.

 

Btw, is it just me or does the gun depression seem better than the listed 5 degrees? I was quite surprised by how easy this thing works slopes.

Two battles played, two battles lost. So far I remain unimpressed.

 

Edit: Third battle the team won. My Obj. 257 could not survive frontal hits from another 257 shooting APCR, Type o5 shooting HE or the final shot from a Type o4 who ammoracked me... :(

If you experienced the tank like this you must drive like a monkey.

TBH not much blocked considering your same tiered opponents and a lot of gold used (I suspect by the credit loss). Not played it yet but did you need all that gold or just easy or had you used all your AP up :teethhappy:?

I must say I didn't bounce a whole lot in it either, as most opponents started to fling HE at me. Still didn't do any damage, but it doesn't count towards damage blocked.

For real? Damn, I kind of guessed this. I won't be playing until next Friday night and I am already nervous. I don't like the paper stats of Obj.257 compared to T-10 but surely I have to play it first before I can form an opinion.

I have no problem with my IS-M, you just need a 122mm gun to overmatch that sloped armour.
